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  ...

My Maternity Leave and Why not everyone agrees

Since finding out I was pregnant I have found that everyone likes to give you their opinion especially when it comes to maternity leave. All mothers will tell you this. They will tell you of all the conflicting opinions that were shoved down their throats and all the ‘you must’ ‘s and ‘you shouldn’t’, it is a constant stream of finding your own footing, particualry when you are a first time mum. In this respect I’ve learnt to agree and then when no  ...

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  ...

Halloween Lush Haul

It is so nearly Halloween and Lush, as always, have pulled out the stops. Every year around September I make my way into my local Lush store where they treat me like a princess, showing me all the lastest tips and tricks and all the new products. I always come away with spending far too much and with a handful of samples to try too. Halloween Mosters Ball is my absolute favourite bath bomb…like ever, it has actually been improved from last year, the sales adviser told me glitter has  ...

Natural Spa Factory is helping me soothe my aches and pains

Vowing to take it easy this pregnancy and In all honesty I have done anything but. From trips to London every other weekend on business to walking ten miles a day in Italy for 2 weeks, I can kind of understand why my ankles are swollen and I think I am coming down with a cold. So I have put myself on evening bed rest. I will be spending the next few weeks relaxing and chilling out in the evenings with maybe a little blogging on the side. But all trips to London have been cancelled for the  ...

Bump Update | Boy or Girl?

From the moment I took the test I knew it was a boy. I felt it in my bones. Call it intuition, call it foolishness, call it what you will but I knew I was having a boy. I have had not one moment of morning sickness (typically known with boys), I was glowing and I was growing… fast. Despite my cockiness we decided to have a 16 week scan to find out as we would be on out babymoon for our 20 week scan so over to Baby Bond we went. At our 12 week scan the baby was right at the front of my  ...

It has taken it in its stride and although I am probably measuring quite big, I know that I would rather be big and  ...

First Trimester | What they don’t tell you

Incorporating my personal life into my blog, I have decide, is so right (for me). Adding opinion and stories stops it turning into an advertising forum. I think some posts I do are super important and I know will help other people going forward. Whether it be to steer clear of a certain product or a product that will change your life or even (almost) a for-warning of whats to come – like this post. Things I wasn’t told throughout my first trimester is something I knew I wanted  ...
