Perfect Skincare & Beauty Christmas Gifts For Her

IMG_1540

It’s not easy knowing what to buy others, especially if you want to get something that’s a little different or special. I always feel that quality is far more important than quantity. I’d much rather receive one small gift that was something tasteful and high-quality, than lots of presents I’m not likely to use. Especially when it comes to skincare…

IMG_1432

I love the idea of unisex clothes for babies and children. It’s refreshing not to have all pink or all blue clothes – it’s nice to have a variety of colours! So you can imagine how thrilled I was to receive some gorgeous unisex bibs from Daisygro. Patterned bibs seem to be really popular now for babies. Not only do…

10 Minute Vegan Recipe

received_343385362796730

I’m not actually vegan, but I do try to limit my dairy intake. I would love to have the willpower to cut out all dairy, but I like cheese and chocolate too much! A lot of the meals I cook happen to be vegan as we’re vegetarian and I don’t always use cheese in my recipes. This recipe is very…

It’s Not Just The Elderly Who Get Lonely

IMG_1392

There’s a lot of awareness surrounding the topic of elderly loneliness. However, there seems to be a big taboo regarding loneliness amongst stay at home mums. It just isn’t talked about, but it’s a very real struggle for many mums. It’s sometimes hard to imagine how you can be lonely when you have a little person clinging to your legs…

How To Start A Blog

IMG_1130

So it’s nearly been a year now since I first started this blog. It’s definitely been a learning curve! I haven’t been able to write as much as I’d have liked to. Mainly due to the minor issue of giving birth and caring for a baby! I had this preconceived idea that blogging would be easy – I’d just casually…

Slow Cooker Healthy Vegetarian Chilli

IMG_1067

Nothing says winter like a warm bowl of chilli con carne! A lot of people presume that when you’re vegetarian, all you eat is ‘rabbit food’. I really hate hearing people use that phrase! It couldn’t be further from the truth. You can pretty much alter any recipe to make it vegetarian and it’s just as delicious – if not…

Society Has Created Stressful Parenting

IMG_20171119_143541_411

A common phrase you’ll hear as a new mum is, “you’ll build a rod for your own back”. This usually comes after instructions such as, don’t let the baby fall asleep in your arms, don’t let the baby sleep in your bed or don’t feed the baby to sleep. I always found it strange hearing people talk about babies in…

A Spa Day at Headland Hotel

DSC_1674

As I’m getting married in a month, my mum and I decided it would be nice to have a spa day together before the big day. I had a very tame hen do (my choice) because I didn’t want to leave Molly for the night. Therefore, it was lovely to have a spa day to look forward to, too. I…

Before I start, I’d like to say this post is in no way sponsored by Cornwall Bedrooms, I just thought I’d share the look with you guys! So, we’d had the same bedroom furniture ever since we moved in together 3-4 years ago. It was actually Chris’s old bedroom furniture, so it was pretty old. We seem to have acquired…

Living With Adult Acne

IMG_0781

Before I start, I want to say that I know there are hundreds of worse things to live with than bad skin. When I really think about it, I realise how insignificant acne is in the grand scheme of things. However, there have been times when it’s really got me down. For me, acne first reared its ugly head when…
