Committing to cutting out the crap | 8 ways you can start saving the planet

War on plastic is a big thing in the media right now. Billions of tonnes of plastic waste gets dumped into landfill everyday. I wan to start of by saying this is not just the consumers fault though. All that recycling you put in that blue bin of yours- over 50% of that ends up going to landfill to! Ridiculous! I’m pretty sure everyone saw THAT VIDEO of the poor turtle getting a straw removed from its nose. That’s when I decided to make the change. Since then I have refused any  ...

Losing the baby weight | My Weight loss Journey

I really didn’t know whether I was going to do this post or not, I mean it’s just another one of those weight loss blog pieces that everyone will either criticise or moan at right.

By writing this blog piece I am being open and honest and hopefully I’ll end up helping someone or inspiring someone but most of all I’ll be more likely to achieve my own goals. So with Evelyn I put on so much weight. 4 and a half stone to be exact. Most of it  ...

5 Things Starting February

January is a time everyone gets their act in gear… or at least tries too. It is a time of New Year Resolutions, gym memberships and promises, but realistically, we all know that after 6 weeks our motivation will dwindle and our bikini body dreams for the season fly out the window and the take-aways fly back in. The Beginning of February see’s me heavily pregnant at 38 weeks and seriously fed up. February is going to be a time of massive change for me so I gathered if my life is  ...

Preventing Pregnancy with an App? Really?

As I am sat here on this chilly autumn night I came across something which actually quite shocked me. Firstly I think women can drive themselves a bit potty with pregnancy tests, apps, how to’s, what to’s and the ever-growing abyss of the internet when trying to conceive. For us it was more keeping track of what was happening to my body when. One app I absolutely swore by was one called P.D. It asks you how you’re feeling on certain days, you track your period etc and it  ...

Mental Health Awareness | How I obliterated my SAD

English winters are not hugely cold or warm they are mainly dreary and grey with a toss of English moaning about the weather whipped in. This is where I think Seasonal Affective Disorder, or SAD, has developed in mankind. Having nothing to look forward to and dreary day after dreary day can certainly have an impact on someone. As a teenager I know it did for me. I mean, What did I have to look forward to? Exams, revision , holiday homework, walks to the bus stop in the cold? Everyone needs  ...

The Little House of Hygge Autumn Box

Six months ago I purchased a one off box from The Little House of Hygge and it quite literally had me wondering how as box could be so perfect for weeks and weeks (you can see it here).

Off I tottled to their website and once again I was in ore of pretty much every item they sell. I quite simply need one of everything! Their October box fell in to my basket  ...

Why I love Autumn

Leaves are slowly hitting the ground, the hint of Christmas is around the corner and conkers are littering our parks…. It can only be one time of year here in the UK… AUTUMN. I think Autumn is well and truly on its way and I am so excited. It is my absolute favourite time of year regardless of the cold weather and impending clouds. There is something so sadistically beautiful about the leaves dying on trees. The colours are so varied and stunning! As you can see below things are  ...
