Sunday Review: InkRocket clothing for mother and child

Sunday Review: InkRocket clothing for mother and child

For months I’ve wanted Autumn and I to have some matching clothing. I keep seeing lovely photos of matching mums, dads, children and babies on Instagram! Now, InkRocket have sent me some of their lovely eco-friendly clothing for Autumn and I to test out and review.

I chose a sweatshirt for myself, as new sweatshirts and jumpers are always welcome in my wardrobe. View Post

Review: LA Tanning Company Mousse

Review: LA Tanning Company Mousse

In the summer, I tend to become a lot more self conscious of my pale skin. I’ve actually been known to have paler skin than my ginger best friend. Yes, really. That’s how pale I am!

When I was a teenager, I went through the standard rite of passage of using a tinted lotion to build up a tan. However, I’d somehow end up streaky and with strange orange lines around my forehead. The thought of having a fake tan sounded good to me, but I never dared do it myself in case I did it wrong again. Until now, that is! View Post

What I wore to Download Festival 2017

What I wore to Download Festival 2017

Before I went to Download festival, I wasn’t really sure what to wear. Of course, it’s a rock and metal event, so clothing doesn’t matter as much as a lot of the other festivals around.

However, I didn’t want to be underdressed or stick out like a sore thumb, so I did some research on the internet first. I found other blogs and trawled google images, searching “What to wear to Download festival“. View Post

This Morning Live, NEC Birmingham

This Morning Live, NEC Birmingham

If you’ve been following my blog and social media accounts, you’ll remember that I went to the press launch of This Morning Live at the ITV Studios in London last month. With home, garden and lifestyle stands, we were excited to go to the show in Birmingham. There were just two things standing in our way…a teething baby and a 150 mile journey in torrential rain!

Postpartum body – a husband’s perspective

Postpartum body – a husband’s perspective

After having a child, I think many women have body confidence issues. Even if you fit back into your pre-pregnancy jeans soon afterwards, it’s unlikely that you’re the same body shape. I’m not convinced anyone goes back to being just the way they were. That’s okay though, we’ve delivered our babies, which is a wonderful thing. However, when we look at extra pounds and stretchmarks in the mirror, it can still make you feel rather down! Often, though, the men in our lives don’t seem to mind too much. I asked my husband to write me a letter about my postpartum body and his thoughts about it. All being well, I can read this in the future if I’m ever looking at my reflection and tearing myself to shreds again!
