The nursery makeover with Valspar paint

January 2, 2020 admin 0

When we were pregnant with our third baby we made the decision to keep the gender a surprise, although secretly I was convinced we were having a girl, which meant when it came to decorating the nursery we needed to opt for neutral colours. Having once been the tiddlers nursery it was already painted baby blue and white, not very neutral and a tad out dated having not been re decorated for 5 years so […]

How A Lovely Cruise Can Improve Your Life Massively

October 25, 2019 admin 0

Are you looking to get away for a little while? Perhaps you’re looking for a short break, or maybe even something a little more significant. Well, you could do a lot worse than a cruise to a wonderful location. If you’re okay with hitting the open water on a huge boat, then a cruise would be amazing for you. Everyone that partakes in this kind of thing has a great time and would love to […]

Making some lifestyle changes

May 21, 2018 admin 0

Since I left teaching in January I have been working on my self development and making some life style changes. The main one  to date is  obviously the fact that I now work for myself as a content creator and social media manager, helping other small businesses spread their messages on line. This change has been wonderful as it means I can now work around the boys schooling and extra activities, I don’t need to […]

Do you have a bucket list?

May 31, 2015 admin 4

As well as having The strawberry fountain beauty and lifestyles blog I also have another, more personal, blog called the 30 before 30 mission. This blog is to track my progress on completing 30 missions before I turn 30 and to talk about my experiences along the way. I started it back in October last year when my 29th birthday was fast approaching and I was becoming increasingly aware that I would soon be 30, […]

The body chef Journey results

May 11, 2015 admin 0

I have just completed a week on the Bodychef flat belly diet and the results are in. After following the plan for 7 days I have lost 3lbs, 2 inches off my waist and 2 inches from around my hips. I am very happy with these results. The best bit, however, is I no longer resemble a dancing caterpillar whilst trying to get into my skinny jeans. When I started this journey the ultimate goal […]

Funkin Cocktail Mixers

May 10, 2015 admin 9

Back in February I had the honour of interviewing the legendary DJ goldirocks who is also the brand ambassador for Funkin cocktails. To repay the favour for a brilliant interview I thought it only fair to put the cocktails through their paces and tell you all about them. The best way to review cocktails of course is to throw a party, so that’s what I did. I enlisted the help of one of my best […]

Body Chef day 3 and 4 – the diet continues

May 7, 2015 admin 0

Day 3 Ok so I’m five days into the bodychef plan and I haven’t starved to death yet. I’m also still following the diet which has got to be a record for me, normally by day five, scrap that day 2 I have succumbed to the temptation of the biscuit tin, or at this time of year the unfinished selection boxes hidden at the back of the cupboard. Tonight I even went out to a […]

Boomf – photos on marshmallows!

May 6, 2015 admin 6

This has got to be the most bizarre confectionary I have ever come across. Marshmallows with photographs on – completely bonkers. Yet it totally works. Why? Because we live in a society that is obsessed with personalisation, selfies and food. When I first discovered Boomf I was instantly transported to Willy Wonkers factory, because, let’s face it, who else could dream this up? Well that dreamer was James Middleton, who along with business partner Andy […]

Body chef January Journey

May 4, 2015 admin 6

The Christmas bulge has finally gotten the better of me. My work pants are starting to feel tight and trying to get into my skinny jeans involves a somewhat embarrassing impression of a caterpillar trying to dance. Action is required, whoever told me the Christmas pud calories didn’t count because it was Christmas was seriously delusional. So, what to do? I shopped around and found so many options; calorie control, shakes, juices, sugar free, fat […]

Vita Coco – A product review

April 19, 2015 admin 0

Vita Coco Two men met two Brazilian women in a New York bar and a business was born. Ok so it sounds like the opening to a joke but this really is how vita coco came about. I received a lovely box with one of each flavour to try. I had previously tried the original one so was already a fan and was really excited to try the other flavours. I think that the way […]
