At the end of last year, I met some lovely ladies from Results With Lucy at the very first South East Bloggers Club meet. I’d been thinking about trying to get fitter, partially inspired by my husband. He started using The Diet Plate and going to the gym a few months ago. He’s lost so much weight and become a lot healthier. When it comes to me and exercise, I need something that’s going to keep me interested. Likewise, it also needs to fit in with my lifestyle.

Mooncups are something that I have thought about using several times over the past few years. Several times they’ve been mentioned or I’ve seen them when browsing on the internet. However, I’ve never taken action on it…until now! One of my New Year’s Resolutions this year was to start being more eco-friendly. I’m not doing anything drastic, just making small changes. However, the groundwork for this one started a few months ago! View Post
It’s the same story for my hands every winter. They get dry, crack, bleed and sting every time I wash them or use hand cream. This has only got worse since becoming a mother! Now, a new survey has shown that dry skin on hands ages them by an average of 9 years. Some hands were even ‘perceived to be 47 years older than their true age’. Meanwhile, healthy hands were ‘perceived to be younger than their actual age 56% of the time’. View Post
It’s very nearly the first anniversary of when I first took Autumn for baby swimming lessons with Puddle Ducks East Kent. We were trying out all sorts of different groups and things at the time as I found my confidence. I thought swimming would be a fantastic bonding experience for us both. However, most of all, I thought it would be great for her. There are many health benefits to it. Amongst other things, it helps babies, toddlers and children improve their coordination and it builds their muscles. When she was younger, I also found that it tired Autumn out so much she’d have an absolutely huge nap! So, if you’re desperate for sleep, you might want to give swimming a go!
Last week, I celebrated my 26th birthday. I can’t believe that this year, my husband and I have been together for a whole decade! I’m also very scared of how close I’m getting to the big three-oh. It feels like time has just flown terrifyingly fast since I left school.
Anyway, it seems like a good time to set some goals for the following year. So, why not do that cliché blogger thing and think of 26 as that’s how many years I’ve been on the planet? View Post
