Review: Shaken Udder YogOaty Pouches

I’ve been aware of Shaken Udder milkshakes for quite some time. Their cartoon cows and bold packaging make them difficult to miss when I’m in the refrigerated section of the supermarket! Recently, they’ve launched YogOaty pouches. These are tasty pouches you can take out with you for a snack, pop in lunchboxes or have as part of breakfast.

Autumn has been a good little tester as always. As you’ve seen on the blog this week, she loves trying bath time things, but food is her most favourite thing to try! She’s tried out all three flavours over the last few weeks either as a snack or as part of her breakfast. I like how small they are to take out with me to play groups or the library. View Post

Review: Childs Farm Skin and Bath Products

If you have a baby, chances are you may have heard of Childs Farm. Whilst I’ve tried out other great bathtime products, I’ve been itching to try out these products since Autumn was a newborn. I was delighted when I was approached with a lovely gift hamper to test out.

Autumn loves her bath time, so she’s always more than happy to be my little guinea pig when it comes to trying out bath products! View Post

Meeting the Duchess of Cambridge with Family Action

Meeting the Duchess of Cambridge with Family Action

Last Tuesday, Autumn and I both had what was probably a once in a lifetime experience. We were asked to attend a (non blog related) event with Family Action. The VIP guest was none other than our future Queen, the Duchess of Cambridge!

This was a very exciting prospect for me, as I’ve always followed her in the media and found her very likeable. However, I was also looking forward to helping Family Action to express various perinatal mental health issues and just how necessary their support is. View Post

CHECK Meat and Two Veg Challenge

CHECK Meat and Two Veg Challenge

As many of you will know, no doubt as you kiss a furry face, it is Movember this month! For anyone who isn’t aware, for the duration of November, many men (and some women) grow a moustache to raise awareness of men’s health! This can cover mental health, but also prostate and testicular cancers.

This is where HECK Sausages come in. This month, they have renamed themselves CHECK “in order to encourage men to search for lumps on their scrotum and for women to CHECK their partners too!”

Review: My husband’s Diet Plate weight loss journey

Review: My husband’s Diet Plate weight loss journey

If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you’ll know that as he’s one of the most important people in my life, I love writing about my husband. Sometimes I even get him properly involved in my blog posts and reviews! My husband had been saying for ages that he wanted to lose weight. When The Diet Plate got in contact at the beginning of August, I told them that I wasn’t a good candidate but my husband would love to give it a try!

Unfortunately, life got in the way for a couple of weeks and the common “I’ll start the diet next week” phrase was uttered. However, he did actually begin to follow the program at the beginning of September, as well as going to the gym. So, has he been successful? View Post
