Perfectly Prepped with Mama Mio’s New Tummy Rub Scrub!

Being pregnant definitely makes you more aware of your skincare routine and of the products you use and the effects/reactions they can have on your skin or, even potentially, on your unborn baby.

Back by popular demand this August: The Aldi Baby and Toddler Event!

Prepping for the arrival of Baby Jonas has been a labour of love mixed in with some heavy lifting, sweat and some tears – yes, I’m referring to the highly overdue clear out of our spare room which, since the day we moved in, took on the role of study/laundry and natural dumping ground.

Slendertone for the Abs

I’ve been putting off writing this post out of sheer embarrassment, but then I probably embarrass myself on a daily basis somehow. I’m going to go head first (or abs first) into giving my views on Slendertone. My first memories of  Slendertone are from when I was a kid when it was a TV Shopping led craze. Your mum, your older sister and even your gran owned one.  It was being advertised everywhere,

The Girl On The Train by Paula Hawkins

I heard about Girl On The Train prior to it’s release and after being hyped as the next ‘Gone Girl’ I simply has to put in a pre-order hence the lovely picture of my Kindle above.

Glossybox – The Mother’s Day Treatment Collection

Mother’s Day – A day to embrace, celebrate and treat the special women that bought us into the world, our Mum’s! As I began to write this post I thought – ah Mothers Day, just another celebrated day in the Calendar commercialised by card companies and retailers.  However, unlike other days such as Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day really is one that I feel should be celebrated and possibly even turned
