Olivia and I were thrilled to have received a Lottie Doll & Biscuits the Beagle dog to review over the Summer. She was grinning from ear to ear when a package arrived in the post that was just for her and when she saw her new Forest Friend Lottie and Biscuits the Beagle dog in real life, she couldn’t wait to start playing […]Read More Review – Forest Friend Lottie Doll
I’ve openly expressed in previous posts that I don’t have the most enviable skin. Saying that, it has improved immensely in the last six or seven years and that’s down to the fact my acne has completely cleared up and I’ve been using great skincare products since then. During times of stress I still get the occasional breakout […]Read More Diamond Microdermabrasion Facial Review
I have suffered badly with hayfever since I was a child. Beautiful Summer day’s have sometimes been ruined when I’m outdoors because my hayfever gets so bad. Itchy nose, blocked nose, itchy eyes, puffy eyes, sneezing, constant nose wiping, it’s a bloody nuisance. I envy anyone that doesn’t suffer with it. Antihistamines were the main thing that helped […]Read More Hayfever & Pregnancy
I had this lovely idea recently that I would bring Olivia to my 28 week antenatal appointment. Her dad couldn’t get off work for it so it was the perfect opportunity to have a mummy/daughter afternoon and include her in even more of this pregnancy. She’s a typical girl – sweet and maternal and extremely […]Read More Note to self.
I didn’t know when I would be sitting down writing this post. Just a few weeks ago I couldn’t see and end to how miserable I was feeling. I would cry easily just out of pure frustration. There was a bad aura in our house because of it all and my husband was feeling crappy […]Read More My Hyperemesis Gravidarum Update
I’m delighted to announce that I am pregnant with our second child. Olivia is thrilled to be becoming a Big Sister as you can see by the photo. But to be honest up until now, there hadn’t been much excitement as I’ve been suffering with the devil of all morning sickness – Hyperemesis Gravidarum. Surprisingly […]Read More Pregnancy announcement & Hyperemesis Gravidarum
Olivia is in her twelfth week of play-school, twelfth! I don’t know where those twelve weeks have gone, but as the saying goes “time flies when you’re having fun”! And my God is she having fun. Play-school has never been a daunting thought or experience for Olivia since we first mentioned those words at the beginning of Summer. […]Read More The Kid Is Alright.
Black Friday has really caught on over here hasn’t it?! There wasn’t a sign of any retailers reducing stock here in Ireland until recent years. We all just watched the news in amazement at shoppers in the U.S tearing each others hair out over a TV reduced to $10 or something ridiculous like that. Now it’s happening over here […]Read More Black Friday. Maybe Next Year.
A honeymoon is the traditional holiday taken by newlyweds to celebrate their marriage in intimacy and seclusion. (Wikipedia) And normally without children too! So why did I feel nothing but guilt when we left our three year old behind? Last month we spent eight nights away from our little girl. The longest we’d ever been apart in all […]Read More Our Childfree Honeymoon.
A good pair of jeans and a good bra are the hardest items of clothing to find. I’ve worked in boutiques for twelve years now and they seem to be the main problem for most of my customers – A problem that I (99% of the time) can fix! Every so often we find a brand […]Read More Mamastyle – C-RO Etage Magic Fit Jeans
