Running End to End | 874 miles in a year | One week in

January 8, 2021 admin 0

This year I signed up to the End to End challenge. A virtual race where you aim to run a total of 874 miles (1,406 km), the equivalent of running from Land’s End to John O’ Groats, in a year. 874 miles is a hell of a lot. To put it into perspective last year I ran 399 miles, so this year in order to complete the challenge I need to double it and then […]

My experience of running with the Camelbak Zephyr vest

November 26, 2020 admin 0

I started running a couple of months after I had Layla. Mainly to lose some baby weight, tone up and try and get a bit fitter. Little did I know that running was going to become my savoir during a pandemic and then two lock downs. When I first started running I struggled to complete a 3km route we had mapped out. If I am really honest I struggled to get to the 1km mark […]

What do parent bloggers bring to the table?

August 12, 2020 admin 0

I first started blogging about 5 years ago as a hobby. I worked for an online blog where I would review beauty products and although I absolutely loved trying out new make up and face creams I knew in my heart of hearts I was not cut out to be a beauty blogger, not long term with that as my only focus anyway, so when an opportunity to review a long weekend in Scotland came […]

5 Top Tips By A Paediatrician On How To Start Weaning

June 8, 2020 admin 0

Weaning can be a fantastic journey to go on with your little one but it can also be a scary time, especially for first time parents. Add to this the new(ish) hype about baby led weaning (BLW) and it can feel very daunting as you prepare to go from giving your baby nothing but milk to all of a sudden allowing them to chow down on pretty much everything (within reason). Despite Layla being my […]

Am I having a Boy or a Girl?

September 27, 2019 admin 0

Nowadays when ladies get pregnant and find themselves wondering “Am I having a boy or a girl?” it is common practice to find out the gender of the baby before the birth instead of waiting, with those who opt for a surprise at delivery being in the minority.  It is also becoming increasingly common for these that don’t opt to find out the gender to instead find themselves on the receiving end of lots of […]

should children be taught about sexuality in schools

Should children be taught about sexuality in schools?

March 22, 2019 admin 1

You may have seen recently that there have been a few televised debates asking the question, Should children be taught about sexuality in schools? Which comes after some pretty shocking footage released from schools where parents are protesting about this very thing. There have been calls for LGBTQ lessons to be cancelled and reports of children and certain teachers being personally victimised. The whole thing is abhorrent  and actually quiet shocking in today’s day and […]

How to make money blogging

March 20, 2019 admin 0

A little over a year ago I left my teaching job due to the stress and demands it was putting on my life and the realisation that I had less and less quality time with my family each week. After handing in my notice without a clue what I was going to do for money I decided to focus on turning my hobby of blogging in to a paid job and after 12 months of hard […]

The first post of 2019

January 10, 2019 admin 0

I haven’t written a blog post for a few weeks and I can’t believe that it has taken me till the 10th to sit down and write the first post of the year but even though we are only 10 days in it has already been a busy one for us. It started with a family holiday in a beautiful log cabin with a  hot tub and plenty of family walks and board games and […]

Celebrity MUA masterclass in Manchester

July 11, 2018 admin 0

When I first started writing my blog it was my little piece of pink in a world full of a blue, in other words it was my release to be girly, write about make up and clothing and escape the constant refereeing and child wrangling that had become my life after having two boys. However this quickly became more about them than it did about anything girly and instead I now find myself reviewing family […]

my year of giving

#MyYearofGiving the 6 month mark

July 2, 2018 admin 0

#myyearofgiving Six months ago I decided not to make any new years resolutions as such but to do two things, one was to say yes to the boys more when they ask to do stuff instead of worrying about the mess or time and just let them have fun and the second was to give back to the world more with #myyearofgiving.   The idea of  my year of giving project was to encourage myself […]
