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  ...

Dress Those Winter Blues Away!

Well folks, it’s happened. Winter is well and truly here. It’s the time of frost encrusted windows, chilly, slate-grey skies and those ubiquitous multi coloured cups streaming out of those franchised coffee outlets. As we walk, we leave trails of cloud behind us like Thomas the Tank Engine as we negotiate slippery, sparsely salted streets and navigate the thronging masses on the high street to do those last remnants of Christmas shopping.

My Wedding Dress Story

My wedding dress story is quite a long one all be it quite simple in the end. Which I can assure you it DID NOT feel like at the time. I gave birth in February and we got married in August. That gave me 6 months to lose the baby weight, totally do able right ?!? Nobody warns you how tremendously hard it is to lose that weight! I know everyone says it’s tough but you don’t really know ‘tough’ until you’re in the thick of it. However, this post it not for moaning  ...

We Started Weaning Vol. 2 | Raising Evelyn

I wanted to write a follow up / Volume 2 of Evelyn’s weaning stories. 3/4 months ago we were weaning Evelyn and getting ourselves into a right old pickle! Evelyn is 9 months, I can’t say we are now ‘plain sailing’ but we are doing a lot better. We have totally done away with any form of bowl…spoon…folk…spork…. it just wasn’t happening. I decided it was time for her to try doing it all herself. She is the most independent baby and knows  ...

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  ...

The Internal Struggle Of Being A Mum | Raising Evelyn

Am I good enough? and Am I doing it right? The two questions every mum asks themselves every.single.day! There seems to be very limited help for first time mums in the U.K. After your 6 week check, that’s it… you’re on your own… sink or swim. In my area, yes, there are groups which run at certain places on a certain day where you can go and see the Health Visitor if you have any concerns about your baby, however recently, my local baby unit place have said only come  ...

Perking Up with Amika

Amika has always had great packaging. I wanted to start with that line because above absolutely everything they catch your eye where ever you look. It is vibrant and super pretty and it makes you want to buy it for sure. But what about the product inside? Well I wanted to put that to the test. Amika was started in 2007 in Brooklyn and has quickly taken the hair industry by storm. Appearing in Birchbox UK subscription boxes they stole the hearts of many, including mine, in the September 2016  ...

9 Months in | 9 Months out

9 Whole Months!! Like W.T.F! 9 Months in… 9 Months out Evelyn is 9 months old today… that’s a whole pregnancy! Or 4.5″ of hair growth, or the time it takes to read Harry Potter series 168 times, or Watch a butterfly appear from a cocoon after it makes it about 25 times!!! It is such weird feeling still that she is here and she is ours. It gives me cold sweats when I think about how quick it has gone and all the things she has learnt to do and all the things she will  ...

Winter is coming! Boo I think I am getting GOT withdrawal… it has been too long! When is the next season out? Someone help a girl out! Ha Ha but seriously the days are getting colder and colder, although the thermals haven’t made an appearance yet I feel they may do soon.
