Healthy Snacking – My Health

I keep seeing pictures on Instagram of people undertaking new diets and showing off their ‘healthy snacks’. However, they really aren’t that healthy. It always saddens me when people spend a lot of time and money investing in a diet that I know isn’t going to give them the long-term results they’re looking for. Not only that, most diets don’t…

Cocktail Afternoon Tea at Fistral Beach Hotel

There’s nothing more British than afternoon tea! There’s something very civilised about having a selection of cakes and finger sandwiches on a cake stand. I don’t know why, but it’s always such a fun and enjoyable experience (I don’t get out much). I was delighted when Chris surprised me with a cocktail afternoon tea at Fistral Beach Hotel this afternoon.…

Firstly, happy new year to you all! I hope 2018 brings you health, happiness and fulfilment. I know that a lot of you will be starting diets today in attempt to lose the Christmas ‘wobble’.

Kick-start Your Health With Adagio Teas

The New Year always marks the start of healthy revolutions and diets. I hate, hate, hate diets (more about why in my next blog post). However, I do believe in making positive lifestyle changes. Something that often catches people out is the number of calories in milky hot drinks. We’re all addicted to sugar laden lattes and they’re just so…

Perfect Skincare & Beauty Christmas Gifts For Her

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…

Daisygro Unisex Bibs – The Perfect Christmas Gift

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

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

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…
