• Our weekend

    So I was recently told by a friend about this country park Rushmere. I wasn’t too sure what expect, as there wasn’t really much information on the website, as far as I could see it was just a massive park that you could walk, bike or horse ride around.  It did mention on the website about a sculpture trail, where you could find fairy doors, wood sculptures that the kids could play on and a must have photo taken in the giants chair (which of course we did)!! When we got there, we parked our car in the car park on site and it was £3 parking for all day…

  • why I decided not to go back to work

    Since I was 16 I have had a job, I have worked for retail stores, and pubs, and salons, in fact I even worked for a cleaning company for a while. when my daughter who I had when I was 18 was 6 months, I returned to education where I studied beauty therapy, adamant that beauty was what I wanted to go into, however in the back of my mind it wasn’t.Honestly I didn’t know what I wanted to do, I continued with my education and ended up doing nothing with it. After I finished college I needed to earn more money than I was getting from my weekend job…

  • top 3 Best and Worst baby products

    Back in 2013 I became a first time mother to my beautiful daughter Chloe-Mae. I had just turned 19, still living at my mums house, with about £600 in the bank to get me through. I would love to say that I had everything I wanted for me and my daughter but the reality was I didn’t. it didn’t take me long to realise that, Im pretty sure I brought every single product on the market, and everything HAD to be branded. I soon learnt that it was paying for the brand name rather than the quality of the product. moving on 5 years later, I now have another baby,…

  • Pantene Micellar water Shampoo

    Today has been the hottest day of the year I think so far.. and I say so far because well tommorw is meant to be hotter, im currently writing this blog post in my garden in the evening weather, Bliss! So I’ve decided to do a review of a recent product that I have been LOVING at the moment. Pantene Micellar water shampoo.   Before I started using this product I was using Aussi shampoo and also garnier that was putting more and more oils and product into my hair that was weighing it down, making it feel heavy. After a day my hair would start to look greasy, and…

  • Plane watching

    Were not a weird family So, I haven’t felt myself for the past few days, Maisie hasn’t really slept and I have felt really down, I plan on doing things and then end up changing my plans and doing nothing.

  • We went to disney

      only just getting round to writing about our experience in Disney land Paris. I want to say it was magical and amazing and stress free but reality is, we should have waited until the kids were a lot older to go, however that doesnt mean we didn’t have fun. because we did, my 5 year old at the Start was so excited about seeing everything but since I last went a lot of things have changed – but then again that was about 20 odd years ago. when we first arrived to disney it was a lovely day, but then mid day is when the rain started, and let…

  • Katie Piper Premium Highchair in Unicorns Review

    So I recieved this, the other day, I ordered it on Thursday last week and it came Tuesday, which I think is very quick for Argos. so I guess that’s a plus. I couldn’t find any reviews on the chair which was a bit rubbish but I know the brand mybabiie is a really good brand and £69.99 I had high expectations. I spent ages trying to see if I could find it for a cheaper price but there wasnt anywhere, so I ended up going with Argos. the description online stated that, its a “fun” highchair, which features 3 recline positions and 6 different Height settings. I was a bit unsure that I would be using the recline positions for because my daughter can sit up on her own, so thats one feature I don’t use,…

  • goals

      Its been a while.. The reason I started writing a blog was to kind of take the load off, in a sense. After having my eldest daughter I suffered with postnatal depression, postnatal depression noun depression suffered by a mother following childbirth, typically arising from the combination of hormonal changes, psychological adjustment to motherhood, and fatigue. Which then has developed into anxiety. I am on sertaline, but I don’t want to be on any medication. I have come to realise that I pass over everything and act like there is nothing wrong, when really I am crying out for someone to talk to.. thats where the blog comes in.…
