Preparing a short break to Wales

Preparing a short break to Wales

Wales is a beautiful part of the British Isles. It doesn’t matter which part you go to, there is plenty to do and see. We have visited Pembrokeshire each year since 2015, when we went there for our honeymoon. However, I’d love to visit Snowdonia and go for a short break in Cardiff! View Post

5 must have car features to ease family travel

Since I started blogging at the beginning of last year, we’ve certainly racked up more miles than usual! From blogging events to family holidays, we’re spending more time in the car than ever before. Of course, having a baby/toddler has changed the way we travel. We have to pack so much more to prepare for every eventuality! We also find ourselves stopping at services far more often. However, there are things that make the journey much easier! View Post

Review: Pointless Board Game

Review: Pointless Board Game

My husband and I are currently trying to put aside one evening a week for a date night. Of course, going out every week would be expensive and we wouldn’t want to ask family to look after Autumn that frequently. As such, we usually spend the time at home.

3 things in 15 minutes to feel more “you”, less “mum”

As wonderful as motherhood is, a lot does change and that takes some adjusting to! I often find myself putting on the same combinations of jeans and t-shirts or jumpers each day. Once I’ve finished work, I slap on some concealer and foundation, quickly put a brush through my hair and rush off to collect Autumn from her childminder. With all the additional things to do in my daily life, I’ve definitely not taken care of myself as much. I’ve been meaning to paint my nails for weeks now, but they’re still bare. Does this sound like you?

It’s so important as mums to give ourselves a bit of self care, in whatever form that comes. This post is about 3 things I  do to feel a bit more like “myself” in 15 minutes and hopefully it will inspire you too! After all, surely 15 minutes is achievable every once in a while? View Post

Review: Esqido Gin & Tonic Lashes

Review: Esqido Gin & Tonic Lashes

I’ve been a big fan of false eyelashes for years now. Occasionally I wear them in the day, but I mostly wear them for a special occasion or if I’m going out somewhere. With some lashes, I feel a little too aware that I’m wearing them and sometimes they look too much or too little. When Esqido approached me to try out some of their lashes, I was intrigued. With celebrity fans including Rihanna and Victoria’s Secret angels including Gigi Hadid, I had to see what all the fuss was about. View Post
