Aldi now sell gym equipment

May 17, 2018 admin 0

Does anyone else just love Aldi? It’s one of those shops were you pop in for a loaf of bread and leave with a 6 man tent, some new curtains and a guitar. You all know what I’m talking about, it’s that infamous 3rd isle that has the most wonderful but random items at ridiculously cheap prices that you didn’t know you needed till you stumble upon it between the all important potatoes and the […]

Canvas prints from Canvaschamp

May 16, 2018 admin 0

One of the things on my to do list this year is to organise all our family photos, either print them off and put them into albums or create photo books so that they are all in one place. I also want to complete our picture wall in the lounge where we have started putting some of our favourite snaps from special occasions and to have some others turned into canvas prints to put on […]

Conscious chocolate review

May 13, 2018 admin 0

Since attending the OM yoga show in Manchester last month and having a look at the Vegan life live event whilst there I have started to become a bit more interested in the vegan lifestyle and am amazed at the amount of products that are vegan friendly. One of my best friends is vegan and when she made the change I remember thinking that there was no way  I could give up chocolate or cheese […]

Olverum bath oil product review

April 12, 2018 admin 0

My bath is basically my sanctuary, the only place in the whole house were I get peace and quiet and to be fair that’s not always guaranteed. Most days I run a bath after the boys have gone to bed so that I don’t have to worry about them trying to sneak in with me or me having to answer to “muummmmy” for the 9ooth time. Instead I shut the door, grab my book and […]

I can’t remember a time when I have ever been happy with my weight but since having the boys I have been more conscious of the way I look and I yo-yo diet, a lot. I go from not caring and eating all the cheese and drinking all the wine to trying cleanses, slimming world and a variety of other diets. At the moment I am trying to increase my exercise and am loving yoga […]

Our first trip to Marco Pierre White in Chester

April 8, 2018 admin 0

I thought I would share another one of my “bucket list experiences” with you from three years ago when I set myself the challenge to do 30 things before I turned 30. This time it is of a memory of a more sedate experience which was to eat in a celebrity restaurant. When I added this to the list I didn’t have a particular chef or restaurant in mind, any would do, I just wanted […]
