I wish I had a Panasonic breadmaker

May 31, 2016 admin 2

I love bread, I could eat it for breakfast, dinner and tea everyday. In today’s modern world there are so many different and wonderful varieties available from white to brown, sweet, stuffed and flavoured that there is something for everyone and every occasion. I have always wanted to bake my own bread. When I was pregnant I would think about the future and fantasise about the smell of fresh baked bread running through the house as I […]

May 30, 2016 admin 3

This week we received a gift from acropats, a box of foam figures that connect together, bend  and float, suitable for all children over the age of 3. When the package arrived both my boys, (6 and 3), were equally excited to play with them. My eldest noticed that they were in the shape of little people and once this had been pointed out my youngest thought it was hysterical. Straight away they started building […]

February 18, 2016 admin 0

We all know I love a doing a review, I get to have a look at a new place or try a new product and then dish the dirt or rave about it to everyone, so when I heard the corn exchange were looking for bloggers I didn’t hesitate to get in touch.

October 21, 2015 admin 0

I absolutely adore The Rose Tree and have reviewed both their face and body oils in the past, both proving a huge success with me. This time I am reviewing one of their candles. If you are an avid reader of my blog you will already know that I am totally addicted to candles.

August 6, 2015 admin 2

If you haven’t already read about my forever living C9 journey you might like to read about days 1-3 and 4-6 first. Day 7 Today I’m feeling energised and the cravings have stopped which is impressive as I can now open the fridge without staring longingly at the diet coke. I am still getting a couple of headaches throughout the day but no pain no gain, or loss in this case. Tonight I fear that […]

After over indulging far too much on an all-inclusive holiday I decided it was time to give my liver and my ever expanding waist line a break, time to detox. After talking to a few people about options the program that kept getting a mention was the forever living C9, after a bit of research I decided this would be a good one to try. The forever C9 is a cleanse that aims to “jumpstart […]

Body chef January Journey

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 […]
