A Weight Loss Motivation Boost

I am now 3 weeks into my weight loss journey. My main goal wasn’t really to eat healthier but to eat less. Like the saying goes “everything in moderation”. I planned to cut my portions by half and stick to eating 1,000 calories a day. A big thing for me to cut was the biscuits. During the first week I …

My Sunday Photo 2016 – 3/52

There’s gradually been more and more snowy winter photos appear on social media and I was left feeling rather glum as I watched the rain pour and the sky dark. I had no hopes for snow this year at all, seeing as last year we just had a small dusting before it was gone by the afternoon.  This morning we …

“It sounds silly because shopping is such an ordinary thing”

Growing up I always spent time with my Grandparents. Just them and me. My Nan and my Grandad. We went to Scotland for holidays to visit my Grandad’s sister, we went to Somerset to visit Grandad’s friend on a farm he owned. I spent pretty much every afternoon after school with them. But now I rarely get quality time with …

My Sunday Photo 2016 – 2/52

We did something out of our comfort zone today. We ventured out of the house in bad weather. The temptation, from a bad night of sleep, to just stay indoors for a lazy Sunday was so extreme but I didn’t cave. Instead I packed a lunch bag, we all wore double or even triple layers, the kids had rain all-in-ones …

“I don’t think I’ve felt true boredom for a long time”

Since the new year I have felt quite refreshed. My emails have been quiet, I’ve been writing and scheduling posts for days in advance, the house is relatively tidy with clothes washing up to date and put away. But the evening telly has been pretty rubbish and limited which has left me feeling rather bored. I don’t think I’ve felt …

My Sunday Photo 2016 – 1/52 

It’s the beginning of a new year. Obviously. I started to take part with the My Sunday Photo linky last year but gradually forgot. This year I’m starting new things with the hope to keep them up. Already I’ve spent 2016 knitting, eating better and feeling happier. Instead of a nice Sunday fry up breakfast as part of my healthier …

Happy Birthday Life With Pink Princesses

I’m not a person to stick at things for long. Saving money goes out the window pretty quick, keeping the house clutter free was a bit longer lived but again it’s lacking, eating healthier and losing weight dwindled out. When I started my blog I was already blogging on a different platform and it was pretty awful. Like that blog …

My Goals For 2016

The past year seems to have flown by. I think I probably say that every year but it does feel like this time last year I had a newborn baby then I blinked and I’m about to enter 2016 with two toddlers and a child. Last year I set myself 5 goals; to lose weight, see friends more, do more …

Share Your Year – Our 2015

2015 is very nearly at an end and it’s time to reflect on the year that has gone past. I honestly don’t think that 2015 was an overly bad year for us so I’m going to reflect in 3 month sections. I’m linking up with Lauren at Belle Du Brighton who gave me this idea. January, February, March I kick …

An Update On Vlogmas 2015

It’s been over two weeks since I started recording VLOGMAS videos for my YouTube Channel and I’ve included the playlist where it scrolls through my videos in order in case you haven’t seen them yet. I decided to join in with VLOGMAS to challenge myself and it really has been quite a task. I’m not sure it’s the filming that has …

My Christmas Wish List 2015

I have been putting off my Christmas list this year because I have already told anyone who has asked the things I’d really like, a duvet set and clothes mainly, so there didn’t seem a need to write a post. But I’ve been reading other wish lists and gift guides and have seen a few things that I’d love to …

#BEDN – 5 – Fireworks Night

Tonight is Fireworks Night. Usually I would try and find a local display for us to go to, especially as the girls really loved the one at our local park recently but this year is a little different and we’ve actually just got back from a date night! My MiL had bought us tickets for a comedy night at the theatre …

#BEDN – 4 – Photography

It’s really crazy to think how far photography has come, especially very recently. From when I was a child there are plenty of very blurry, low lighting and low quality images of me. The photos are mainly of big events or birthdays taken on a camera that got dusted off for these momentous occasions. Go from back then to nearly …

#BEDN – 1 – Something New About Yourself

It’s really crazy that we are now in November. I haven’t thought much about getting prepared for Christmas but it’s actually approaching at a rapid speed. This month I have decided to join in with the Blog Every Day in November (BEDN) blogging challenge. It’s meant to be fun and I only decided to do a few days ago so I’ve …
