Slendertone Abs 8 | Losing those last few inches

Y’all been watching me moan (read joyfully experience) about my weight loss journey. Well since October things have really come to a halt. I’ll be totally honest with you it is completely my fault. I have been super busy with work and the Nationals and it’s been work events galore where you’re kind of expected to eat and drink. I’m not moaning about that bit… but my waist line is. And actually so are my social media stats. I have seriously neglected them  ...

When a Photo has you wishing for more

When I did my A-level photography one thing I wish I had done more of was under water photography. Unfortunately, living in England, the water is so murky it makes it pretty hard to get any shots at all. I have been looking at a brand new waterproof camera, the Panasonic Lumix Tough Camera DC-FT7 and it’s got me digging out the old photos from the archives and wondering how I used to take photo’s with a compact camera. It reminded me that a DSLR isn’t always the best for  ...

Snuggling in with Fat Face this Christmas

The past couple of years I have done a fabulous gift guide for you all. One brand who are well know for their clothing is Fat Face. It hasn’t been until recent years that their home and beauty products have got a look in. Thanks to the likes of Boots and their 3 for 2 xmas deals they are finally getting a well earned notice. Last year I wrote a gift guide that featured some products sold by Fat Face but not any of their own products. This year I wanted to dedicate a post to them for  ...

Keeping Calm with KypWell

You know when you’ve just had that week from hell and you just want to give up…. well that was me last week.

Single Mum’s I salute you! Then… the ceiling started dripping, which turned into a mass  ...

The Weirdness of Changing Your Name After Marriage

No one ever tells you about this bit… the total wipeout of the name you used to go by. All your life you have been called and answer to one name. Your family name. And within a few moments of saying the words ‘I DO’ you become someone totally different yet exactly the same. Growing up if you attended a British state school there would have been a least a dozen people in your year that were called almost entirely but their surname. I was pretty much one of those people.  ...
