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 […]

Shrek The Musical

Shrek The Musical DVD Review

The good thing about Winter is the long evenings that were made for family movie time; Boo loves singing along and dancing (I’m often her unwilling dancing assistant!) so when the opportunity came to see what we thought of Shrek the Musical on dvd I was excited to see how Boo would take to a […]

New Year’s resolution: slash your energy bills!

At the end of 2013 many of the UK’s leading energy providers hiked their energy prices by up to 10%. This was an extremely unwelcome move for many households, leading to spiralling costs just as winter arrived. With prices at an all-time high, the New Year is a great time to look at your electricity […]

Christmas Shopping: Online Vs Hitting The Shops

Ok I’ll admit it, I’m feeling rather smug – apart from a handful of presents I’ve pretty much done all my Christmas shopping. Apart from the odd last minute stocking filler that’s caught my eye, Boo’s been done for over a month now. I’m really organized when it comes to birthdays and Christmas as past […]

The Little White Company A/W 13

The Little White Company – A/W 13

Way back at the beginning of Autumn me and Boo went along to The Little White Company store on Marylebone High Street for an exclusive Blogger evening of shopping and biscuits for the little ones. Boo loved playing with all the toys on offer and looking at all the ‘pretty, fluffy clothes’ – loving her […]

Mummy and Boo hug

World Prematurity Day 2013 – Give a Hug

Today is World Prematurity Day, but then you all know about Boo’s premature birth and my efforts for last years #WPD. So today isn’t about me reeling of statistics that will both bore you and make you cry, today is about giving a hug. Bliss are on a mission to help make hugs a possibility […]

Me and Pudsey

Pudsey’s Family Fun Day at St Pancras International

Last Saturday I was invited to the Pudsey’s Family Fun Day at St Pancras International in aid of BBC Children in Need; with Boo in hospital at the time it felt like a great event to support. There was an action packed day on offer to families with activities including: Pudsey Bear’s picnic, treasure hunt, […]

When It Comes to Women’s Health, Mums Know Best

No beauty or fashion posts from me today; today I’m talking about women’s health. Ok so it may not be every woman’s favourite topic of conversation but it’s pretty important, yet there still seems to be reluctance to talk about it, the big question is why? All things Gynae (yes there I said it) affect […]

Boo had pneumonia

This Time It’s Pneumonia

I thought we were done with hospitals (well in-patient status at least) but it seems I was wrong. Boo was admitted to hospital today and diagnosed with pneumonia – likely to be in both lungs. As I write this I can’t believe we’re here; not that we’re somehow above this surprisingly common but extremely painful […]

Philomena: Film Review

I’ve got a confession to make: I haven’t been to the cinema since I was pregnant – that’s over two years ago! Before Boo I loved going to the cinema as for me it felt like the ultimate time out, no phones, no conversation, no distraction the perfect me time. I was invited to a […]

Enjoying gorgeous prams and gorgeous smoothies!

Joolz Blogger Breakfast

Last week I was invited to the Joolz Blogger Breakfast at the Boundary Rooftop (it’s amazing, definitely somewhere to add to my little black book!). It’s no secret that up until recently I’ve been a die hard Buagboo fan , however adjusting to life with just a basic stroller after thinking Boo was too big […]
