have never been good at blow drying my hair. Whenever I tried to replicate the sleek look my hair stylist had done it always turned into a frizzy afro disaster. So I relied on my hair straighter. However the constant high temperature for long periods of time on my hair everyday was wreaking havoc on my locks, and the time it took to tame every strand was exhausting. So mum bun or the dreaded ponytail became my go to look.
When you first have a child it is human nature to put their needs above all else. I remember feeling like there was nothing more important than my baby. He needed feeding, I would feed on demand. He needed cuddling and comforting, I would drop everything and make sure he knew I was there. However now that he is older his needs are more complex.
n order to get healthier my husband and I have decided to incorporate more vegetarian dishes in to our weekly meals. With more and more research suggesting that our overly meaty western diets are to blame for a lot of health problems we thought it no harm to try a few veggie meals.
The day Gabriel was born was the best day of my life, but so was the day I married my partner, lover and friend. Nothing prepared me for how emotional and fulfilling this day was going to be. A day of pure happiness, joy and love, that I wish I could relive again and again.

However I quickly learnt that there was a lot more to it than that.
I first heard of the Power Peel back in 2014. I had just moved to Aberdeen from Paris and my skin was looking awful. It was dull and blotchy and I had dark pigmentation spots all around my chin area. I wanted smooth even toned skin which is hard to get when you are acne-proned and dark-skinned like me.
I realised quickly that my coping mechanism wasn’t working and that I was heading down a similar path to my dad. Knock on effect. What was I going to do? I had already been taken to see counsellor after counsellor. I had already gone down the medication route and I didn’t want to continue the way I was going. So my only option left was for me to take control of my own life.
The Fashion choices now a days for children is amazing. I can go absolutely crazy when I am shopping and I always seem to end up buying more clothes for Gabriel than for myself.
This is one of the outfits he was rocking this week. For the last 4 months he has been wearing the same pair of sneaker shoes with every outfit. So I thought it was time to work on his shoe collection and that is when I got hold of these gorgeous little baby brogues!
I have always been a huge fan of Disney. So it should come as no surprise to me that at 30 years old I still choose to watch disney films in my spare time. I am not ashamed to admit it. I love a fairytale. So lucky for me, I got engaged in the most fairytale hotel on the planet, and I don’t think any othe
After much discipline and planning, I am finally down to my pre baby weight. I am very chuffed with myself but I still cannot believe it has taken me a year and a half to reach this goal. I had originally thought it was going to take only 4 months! So I have been on the hunt for some good workout gear to get me through.

I would like to think I am a very switched on mother. My son always comes first with everything, and I always make sure he is safe from harm. I walk into a situation and assess the surroundings to make sure there is nothing he can get his hands on. But despite my constant vigilance, …
