In my little blogging world, the new year hasn’t started off to shabby. For the duration of 2015, I will be a Brand Ambassador for Slumber-Roo! This is such an exciting new step for me and for my blog. I’m relatively new to baby wearing. P1 wasn’t. P2 was carried every now and then but P3 does spend a lot …

“My Nan was in my dreams”

Losing my Nan was the worst thing to ever happen to me. I felt an emotion that I’d never felt before and I’m scared to feel it again. I can’t even describe the way it felt. I felt the same thing last night during my dream. It was so real and so terrifying. My Nan was in my dreams, in …

My Healthy Habit with Juice Plus – Week 2

I’ve been really worrying about the weigh in this week. I’ve now been on Juice Plus for two weeks. I’ve also been exercising religiously using the app that I spoke about last week. I’d hoped I’d lost some weight. I feel skinnier. In reality I don’t think I am and the scales confirmed that. Weight: 45.6 kg (6st 13lbs) Hips: …

My Healthy Habit with Juice Plus – Week 1

Yesterday marked the end of the first week since starting the Juice Plus diet. I am actually quite proud of myself for reaching the end of the first week without stuffing my face in secret full of yummy biscuits we were given at Christmas. I’ve managed to stick to 2 shake and one meal a day, I have only had …

“It’s like someone flicked a switch and made me motivated”

It’s Friday already which means that P1 has completed her first week back to school and we’ve completed our first week back in a slight routine. This week has really been different. It’s like someone flicked a switch and made me motivated to move instead of lazing on the sofa. I’m still struggling to get up early, physically getting up …

My Healthy Habit with Juice Plus – Start Day Round 2

In November I decided to start the Juice Plus Diet but on the same day that I started we were bombarded with concerns for P3s weight gain, or lack of and as I was breastfeeding I decided not to start my diet just yet. When our breastfeeding journey came to an end I made the decision to start the Juice Plus …

Schwarzkopf Color Mask Review

My hair and my image in general was getting me down after having P3. I’m sure you’re all aware that I decided to have a hair colour change. Quite a drastic one really, brunette to blonde!! I have to admit that I was hoping for a more “white” blonde than it is but becoming a blonde has really lifted my …

“We are now 13 days since we last breastfed”

The morning after I had wrote about P3s slow weight gain I woke up at about 2am and sterilised some bottles. She’d been restless and squirming and my boobies for a while and it was upsetting me. The whole situation was upsetting. I felt completely useless. I received many helpful advice from the health professionals and from fellow blogging friends, but I …

“I get such a warm fuzzy feeling when I receive gifts”

There’s certainly a trend in the blogging world right now with Christmas just two weeks away! Every where I look there’s photos of Christmas decorations, food, gift guides, Christmas jumpers and product reviews. Oh the reviews are coming in thick at the moment for me and at times I’ve felt completely overwhelmed and slightly scared I’ll lose some readership by …

“Our house has been filled with germs this weekend”

Our house has been filled with germs this weekend. Hubby has had a cough for a while now but Friday saw P2s temperature rise and her cheeks were bright red. She was due to spend the day with her Grandparents which had to be cancelled, however P1 went for a rescheduled sleepover instead. On Saturday, I woke with a snotty …

“The only positive is that it’s a gain and not a loss”

I felt so nervous waking up this morning. P3 was due to get weighed again to check the weight gain situation. I’ve been trying really hard to get more feeds into one day, I’ve been eating and drinking better too. I woke the poor little lady up from her nice cosy slumber in her Doona and took her inside the …

“During the day we have no issues”

I didn’t expect to have problems feeding this time round. With P2 it had all gone pretty smoothly but with the weight gain falling heavy on my mind the past few days I’ve been questioning my ability. I’ve done a lot of Googling and the support I’ve had via Instagram, Twitter and Facebook has been astounding but I still can’t …

“P3s weight gain is not good, in fact it’s awful!”

At the 6 week checkup P3s weight had dipped slightly. It wasn’t a huge concern because she’d just been ill and on antibiotics. Then today, we visited the health clinic for a weigh in and to see the health visitor. That’s when it smacked us right in the face. P3s weight gain is not good, in fact it’s awful! This …

My Healthy Habit with Juice Plus – Start Day

Today I’ve started my healthy eating diet with Juice Plus. It means a lot more to me than just losing weight. It’s about my health. For a very long time I’ve been eating around ten or more biscuits each day and the meals I eat have been easy-to-cook options like pizza or ready meals. It’s become a habit and if …
