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

January 8, 2021 admin 5

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 […]

What I see when I look to 2021

January 2, 2021 admin 0

2020 was the worst year of our lives and not just because of the global pandemic. As a family we went through so much heartache and just because the bells have rang and the date has changed doesn’t mean that heartache has stopped. In fact in some ways it’s harder knowing those we lost in 2020 will never get to experience this year and it feels like we are leaving them behind, even though they […]

My experience of running with the Camelbak Zephyr vest

November 26, 2020 admin 1

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 […]

5 ways to boost your confidence and self esteem

November 17, 2020 admin 2

I would hate to be a teenage or young adult growing up these days. It was hard enough back in the 90’s and 00’s but to become a young women and start dating today would, in my opinion, be so much harder. These days everything is captured on camera, whether you want it to be or not. And all those photos are put out there for the world to see, to like, to comment on […]

What do parent bloggers bring to the table?

August 12, 2020 admin 1

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 1

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 […]

What are mock ups and how can they be used? When starting a new business one of the most important things to do is to share your products with your clients so that they know what it is you are offering, this is even more important if the service you offer is a creative one. Your clients need to see ideas, designs and samples in advance. They want to be able to visualise what it […]

ACE winter refresh challenge

October 29, 2019 admin 4

As summer becomes a distant memory and Autumn turns to Winter we were asked if we wanted to take part in the ACE winter refresh challenge to freshen up our winter wardrobes. BUT let’s be honest, there is no way¬† that at 37 weeks pregnant I am going to fit in to a single one of my favourite winter outfits, so I thought I would go one further and really put ACE to the test.
