I want to look presentable but natural during the day. The last thing you want is to bump in to Karen from work looking like you have been beaten with the ugly stick one too may times. That is why I go down a simple route. I do the “No Make Up” Make Up Look to look like a natural beauty. (even though I am totally cheating) #wokeuplikethis not!
We celebrated Gabriel’s 2nd Birthday this weekend and I still can’t seem to bring myself to admit he is no longer a baby. He is a toddler. Time has just flown so fast and it still feels like yesterday we were bringing him home for the first time. The last two years have been full …
I had been warned about the changes that would happen to my body after having kids. Even though we should be embracing The Mum Bod, I have found a wardrobe staple that helps me look and feel better in my body. Wobbly bits and all.
Like most things, the Romance of Valentine’s Day changes after having kids. With our heavy schedules it is easy to fob off this romantic holiday, however as gimmicky as it is there is no reason why you cannot dip into the fun of Valentine’s Day. As parents we often neglect ourselves and this is a good excuses to get back to basics with your partner. So here is my Busy Parents Guide To Valentine’s Day.
When I first found out I was pregnant I remember walking into boots and stopping by the baby aisle for the first time in my life. Excitement filled my body. All of the cute little accessories and products available for babies sent my head spinning. There were so many products to choose from. How do you know what what to buy? Which ones are best for my baby?
Like most mums, I strive to be the best mum I can be. And a very important factor for me is proving my son with the optimum amount of nutrition he needs to grow and be healthy. I believe that home cooked meals and snacks give a better nutrition punch than pre made packaged food. That being said, I know first hand how the pressure to constantly cook healthy yet delicious meals can get drive you insane!
I have been making an effort this year to look somewhat presentable during the week. There were times when I would venture out of the house looking exactly the same as I did when i woke up. With no shame what so ever! Sometimes wearing almost the same thing! I have been loving big soft curls at the moment and have received a lot of comments from people asking me how I do it. So I thought I would test out my new video skills and make a “very short” video to show you.
This year is going to be a big one for me. I have so many goals and objectives I wish to achieve. However as well as setting goals for for myself and my family for the next year I also want to take the time to improve myself as a person. To be more relaxed and stress free and take the time to reflect on what I want in life and how to achieve it. To be able to look at my relationships objectively and work towards making them better.
As a lot of you already know from my instagram feed ,my husband and I spent our honeymoon on the gorgeous islands of Barbados and St Lucia. We had researched a lot of destinations for our honeymoon and decided that the Caribbean was the best option for us. The fact that is was a direct flight from London to Barbados, and that we would be able to bath in the sun in the middle of December was a deal breaker.
With Christmas and New Years Parties I must admit that my make up brushes have taken a beating in the last few weeks. They have been covered and recovered in foundation, eyeshadows, lip shades, concealer and then packed into a tight make up bag. As well as been the cause of many tanned coloured stains on my pouches and table tops!
This last week was a hard one. I felt like I was failing at this whole mothering thing. In February my son turns two and I am dreading to think that he has not yet reached the infamous terrible twos. His tantrums and constant whining have already started to become epic and the idea that …
