Mudderella: Owning my Strong

Mudderella: Owning My Strong

It’s three weeks since me and two friends took part in Mudderella and I think it’s fair to say I’m hooked on obstacle course racing – there will be a full review of the race itself in the coming days but I wanted to spend a little bit of time first on my reasons for […]

Away in my Aeroplane: Review

Can you believe it’s been a year since we were lucky enough to go on the Thomson’s PreSchooler Trip to Majorca – it wasn’t Boo’s first time on a plane but I still made an effort to talk about it before our holiday so she was familiar with what would happen; as a result Boo […]

Parragon Life Canvas Paris Collection

Back to School Stationary Parisian Style

Back to school doesn’t just mean fun for the kids, if like me you’re rather partial to stationary (that really is putting it mildly) then the new school year is the perfect excuse to see what’s on offer down the pens and pencils – not forgetting notebooks- aisle! The lovely folks at Parragon sent me […]

Hypermesis Gravidarum

Hyperemesis Gravidarum: A Dark and Lonely Start to Motherhood

In the last few hours, it has been announced that the Duchess of Cambridge is expecting her second child; and like her first pregnancy she is suffering with hyperemesis gravidarum. I suffered with hyperemesis gravidarum when I was pregnant with Boo and completely sympathise with how Catherine is feeling. Hyperemesis gravidarum is the reason I […]

Khyber Croydon: Restaurant Review

I’d never regarded Croydon as the go to for Indian cuisine however over the Bank Holiday me and my sister were invited to Khyber, a long established Indian restaurant founded by the Khalique family in 1978. We arrived on a Sunday evening and were immediately impressed by the crisp, clean and modern décor and the […]

Planes 2: Fire and Rescue

Disney Planes 2 Fire and Rescue: Film Review

The summer holidays are well and truly in full swing and whilst it’s lovely to enjoy the amazing weather we’ve recently had (if you’re one of those people who are moaning about the heat… seriously, what is wrong with you!); a British summer wouldn’t be complete without a trip to the cinema. Often saved as […]

Boo's 3rd Birthday

Dear Boo, Now you are 3

It’s early morning and you’re still sleeping, yet I’ve already watched you snuffling for the last half an hour and still can’t quite believe you turned 3 yesterday. A cliché I know, but it feels like only yesterday that you were born. You’ve come so far in 1096 days – that’s 1096 days that I’ve […]

Sleeping Beauty

Disney’s Sleeping Beauty Review and Downloadable Activity Sheets

If like me you’ve been wondering who Princess Aurora is (she literally features on everything Disney, yet to my shame I couldn’t work out which Princess she was) you’ll be pleased to know that she is the one and only Sleeping Beauty. The Disney classic was first released in 1959 – having taken nearly a […]

Centrale Spring Fashion Fix

Spring Fashion Fix at Centrale Croydon

Over Easter, Centrale hosted its annual Spring Fashion Fix giving fashionistas the chance to get all of the tips and trends for the upcoming season. On Thursday 17th April, Centrale was jam packed with fashion fun including style fix and colour consultation workshops throughout the day. Centrale is pretty local to me and is the […]

Mother's Day 2014

Mumspiraton | Clothing at Tesco

I’m a product of the 80s so experimenting with fashion has been a big part of my life (thank goodness social media wasn’t around when I first started clubbing – phew!). The biggest influence on my style and how I view clothes comes from my Mum. When I was growing up I thought my Mum […]
