Mental Health Awareness Week UK – How are you feeling, really?

This week marks the start of Mental awareness week in the UK. Whilst not being your typical conversational starter it’s great to see general awareness of this topic being brought to the forefront of our minds.  A recent study by the Mental Health Foundation in 2016 showed that 1 in 6 adults experience a common mental health problem such as anxiety or depression. During my recent pregnancy I often found

Aldi’s January Baby and Toddler Special Buy Event live now!

And just like a blink of an eye two months have gone by and I no longer have a newborn (or tiny baby) in my case, and I’m drawing near to the end of the infamous fourth trimester!

Be Kind, Be Happy, Read More and Drink More – Water!

Am I the only person who thinks it’s super weird how the chime of Big Ben signifying midnight (aka the New Year) turns us all into absolute crazies!? Before the Chimes, and, I have to say, the amazing fireworks (exactly how much did they cost?), I was the happy me. Now post chimes, I’m the new and improved happy me. Well, not exactly but hopefully you can see where I

If you’ve been browsing the internet this week, or have just been doing the odd bit of early Christmas shopping, then you’ll be aware that it is a discount jungle out there.
