Wanderlust: 4 Areas I Want To Visit In India

India is a vast country with so many different areas to explore, and it would take years and years to explore it fully, if it’s even possible! There are the more popular areas that travellers and tourists tend to have at the top of their lists, but there are so many other areas to take into account if you’re thinking of visiting India. It’s a county I would love to visit, when the kids are…

Sunday Scrapbook – The New Year Slump

Oh boy am I feeling the ‘New Year Slump’. I still can’t quite get my bum in gear yet. I’ve barely worked at my desk, instead preferring to curl up with a blanket round my shoulders and a candle lit. Every time I go to the loo I read a chapter of my book… or start to clean the kitchen instead of writing a new blog post. I feel like hiring someone to smack me…

The #Saturday6 blogger link up

This year I want to write more personal content, things I want to remember, things that make me happy, things that make me mad and lots more in between.

I often find these a little tricky to write if I’m honest but will always continue to do them because looking back through the photos makes me smile and makes me happy! Here’s the kids in January 2016 (the photos are blurry but they are so small, and Arlo wears the PJs that Athena is wearing now!)   I try and record the kids’ relationship with each other but…

Home Storage Solutions with Addis

I know it’s a bit of a cliche but I do plan on getting a bit more organised this year (and yes, I’ve probably made this vague resolution more than a few times in the past!) but I made a start last year in other areas of our home, but had never really done much in the kitchen. Addis recently sent me a few very handy home organisation products to help me get sorted and…

Review: Braun Silk Epil 9 Epilator SkinSpa

One of the irritating things about being female is that most of us don’t particularly want to be strolling about with hairy armpits, legs and everything else. Yes, societal norms dictate that we remove it, although obviously it’s down to personal choice,  but I do prefer to remove it. I’ve had one not very pleasant experience of waxing (I bled – not sure what went wrong!) and found it messy and time consuming for results…

Style: Gant Chelsea Boots

Finding a pair of comfy, durable, stylish winter boots is always a task and a half. Will they rub? How high is the heel? Will they cope with wet weather? The list goes on, and considering I do a fair amount of walking so although how a pair of boots looks is important to me they need to be comfy first and foremost. Just after Christmas I was sent a pair of boots from GANT…
