Cybex Sirona S i-Size Car Seat | Raising Evelyn

A few weeks ago Evelyn was diagnosed with severe Hypermobility. Being hypermobile basically means your joints are more flexible than others. Evelyn has had a lot of pain with hers and now is on a waiting list for 6 months of Physiotherapy. We have lots of exercises that we are currently doing with her to help her gain strength but as soon as she is old enough we have been advised to enroll her in Ballet and Gymnastics and the such like. However, Rugby and Trampolining are a definite no no  ...

I Have a 1 Year Old | Raising Evelyn

I am shocked. I can not understand how my diddy little sass ball is 1! Everyone tells you it goes by so fast and you don’t realise how quick until it’s happening and you can’t keep up with the speed. Evelyn is such a tiny sausage and still fits into her 6-9 month old clothes. She weighs only 17lbs 10oz and is the sassiest, cheekiest little girl I know. A few weeks ago Evelyn was diagnosed with extreme hyper mobility and we were told to prepare for a lot of dislocations,  ...

Valentines Day Gift Ideas

I am not a Valentine’s day fan. Don’t get me wrong I like a card of acknowledgement (lol) but I am not one for the over exaggerated ideas of ridiculous displays of love- giving or receiving. It’s false and forced. It is like when you are in a relationship and one says to the other “Tell me you love me” and the other one does but neither feel it. It is fake… it it totally fake. That aside, there is a hell of a lot of you that love it and want to be given  ...

Redesigning the House | St Josephs Interiors

Time. The oxford dictionary defines it as ‘the indefinite continued progress of existence and events in the past, present and future regarded as a whole’, yet the Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary defines it as ‘the measured or measurable period during which an action, process or condition exists or continues’. However you describe it… I have none. Working full time, raising children, keep the house clean and tidy with dinners on the table, taking a child to all  ...

Glossybox ‘It’s All About Love’ Edition | February 2019

Well January went by in a blink of an eye. For me it was the most un-Januaryist January of my life. and here we are, the first week in February already. Life is passing me by here and scaring the crap out of me! I have a 1 year old this month god damn it! A new month means…. a new box. January’s Glossybox sold out so incredibly quick I don’t think even any influencer’s got a look in, which is obviously incredible but it was sorely missed. However, February’s  ...

Taking January one Sniph at a Time

January has to be the longest month of the year. Everyone is coming down from their Christmas and New Year’s high and everyone is skint, tired and longing for their next holiday. Did you know that the first Saturday of January has been dubbed ‘Sunshine Saturday’ as people up and down the country book their years holidays. Going to be honest, we fell into this pit. Nursing a steaming cold I hit the ‘Pay for flights’ button on the Easyjet website and booked our  ...

6 Things you have to Learn to Deal With as a Mum That WILL Gross You Out| Raising Evelyn

There are many many things we say and hope we never have to deal as an adult. In reality you are going to be doing probably all those things if you want to be or are already a mum. Things like wiping your child’s bogey with your own finger quickly before a photo, or peeling their caked poo vest off their back whilst trying not to spread it in their hair more than they already have, or even swirling your mouth with endless mouthwash because your child has been sick in your mouth! You  ...

What defines a ‘Good Mum’? | Raising Evelyn

What defines you as being a ‘Good Mum’? Is it the healthy diet? or the endless gifts? or what about the attendance to every single school play? or the time you spend with your children? Well really, it is a combination of all of these and finding a happy medium. I have recently been asking myself this question. I am pretty good at thinking of all the things I should be doing like giving Evelyn more varieties of foods or maybe she should be socialising more. But what does being  ...

Lengthening Lashes without a trip to the beautician

I have never been a huge fan of false lashes. In the past 5 years I think I have worn them 5 times. If that. The last time I wore them was at my wedding and they irritated me all day. I think you can even tell in some of my wedding pics. In hindsight I should have just had a lash lift or extensions. You could hardly see my eyes. That is one thing about myself I actually like. My eyes. Since having Laser Eye Surgery 5 years ago ( I should probably write about that) I make sure I look after  ...
