A Complete Break | Life Updates

A little over three weeks ago I made the decision to allow myself to take a break. A break from tracking my food, a break from working out, a break from Blogging, a break from my online nutrition course. It's not that I don't enjoy all of these things, but I think that I can… Continue reading A Complete Break | Life Updates


1st Birthday Preparations | What I Wasn’t Prepared For

So in two weeks time my son turns one! I cannot believe how fast this year has gone. I still think of him as my baby but it is starting to sink in that he's a little boy, he's getting more and more independent, he has his own personality, and is no longer a "newborn".… Continue reading 1st Birthday Preparations | What I Wasn’t Prepared For

Be The Greatest

It has been a week since I last blogged - not because of writers block but because it has been quite a week. First off I came down with a cold, something that I never used to suffer from but since having Charlie I come down hard with them. So I haven't really been doing… Continue reading Be The Greatest

Making Time For Yourself

After reading a blog yesterday I was inspired to write about the ways in which my husband and I have strived to make time for ourselves since becoming parents. Before little Charlie arrived we were very selfish and don't mind admitting it, we would spend our time doing whatever we wanted, whenever we wanted.… Continue reading Making Time For Yourself


9 Month Health & Development Review

    Babies will have regular health and development reviews during their first few years. It seems that each local area in the U.K. carries these out at different times, but generally they are reviewed shortly after birth, 1-2 weeks, 6-8 weeks, 9-12 months and 1-3 years. Last week Charlie had his 9 month review and… Continue reading 9 Month Health & Development Review

Challenge Day 8 | Date Night

So mid-way through January I decided to do a "12 days of new year" challenge, for a bit of fun and to prompt me to consistently upload a blog. It started off well but the reality set in that with my 9 month old son to look after I was going to struggle to do… Continue reading Challenge Day 8 | Date Night


Surviving on one wage

"The goal isn't more money. The goal is living life on your terms" Chris Brogan. I am now officially out of my maternity leave, and I am lucky enough that I am able to take an extra year off work on career break. Now we are by no means rich but we have learned to… Continue reading Surviving on one wage

Keep It Basic

"Life is actually really simple, but we insist on making it complicated" - Confucious. Too often we think "what if" and this stops us from taking action. "What if i fail" "what if it doesn't work" "what if people don't take me seriously". All of these types of thoughts delay or stop us from taking… Continue reading Keep It Basic

Day 6 & 7 | Go one day only eating WHOLE FOODS / Try an ICED coffee

Halfway through my 12 days of new year challenge, and it have to say I'm enjoying it. It has prompted me to try and do things that I've been meaning to for a long time. We are well in to January and so far I have started a blog, gone a day without caffeine, donated… Continue reading Day 6 & 7 | Go one day only eating WHOLE FOODS / Try an ICED coffee
