As an avid festival goer, music lover and someone who is usually found throwing shapes all over T in the Park, I feel like I am somewhat missing out this year. Being a new mum changes your perspective on everything. However, I will be making it to one festival this year! Doune the Rabbit Hole… Continue reading Going Doune The Rabbit Hole
I started writing this, wondering if my guilt trip was justified. After all, I am really only buying the more expensive Profutura formula because I am worried that the cheaper one doesn’t have all the nutrients that this new fangled scientific formula does. Does it have more goodness? Would I be denying my 10 week… Continue reading Aptamil First Infant and Aptamil Pro Futura formulas: Is there really a difference?
I am writing this piece feeling blessed that I have reached full term and cannot find a stretch mark on my tummy. I am also feeling relieved that I am no longer being sick, feeling nauseous or suffering from the horrific heartburn I have experienced for so long.

Knowing I… Continue reading Mid Term: Am I Supposed to be Superhuman?

It was a Sunday evening. I didn’t feel right. Bloated, queasy and having missed a period I thought, well that will be it, that’s the reason, I am late and just feeling yucky. My fiancé didn’t agree. He said I wasn’t looking well or acting normally. Off he went to the local pharmacy and came… Continue reading Discovering you are pregnant: My biggest WTF? moment so far.
Who doesn’t love a nice long soak in a bath? I can lie in there for ages with a good book and then top the hot water up when I feel it getting too cool. Shame on my wrinkly fingers. I came across this beautiful little jar of what I thought were bath crystals… Continue reading Bath Caviar? Now that’s a bit rich.
After following various bloggers attempts to try, and mostly fail, the dreaded Project Pan challenge and wondering how on earth they would finish off 30 to 70 products in the space of a teeny calendar month, I have finally managed to collect some empties. Empties that I didn’t challenge myself to finish but actually, really… Continue reading The Unusual Empties Edit: Products so good I used them to death!
