Growing up, whenever my mother wanted to remind of us the sacrifices she had made for my siblings and I (which she insisted on doing on a regular basis), she would lift up her top and show us the multitude of stretch marks and loose skin imparted on her through pregnancy.
Back when I was a schoolgirl in the late 90’s and barely there eyebrows were all the rage, I felt rather pleased with my squint or you may miss them brows.
With only days to go until the big day, it’s time for some last minute inspiration with part 3 of my ‘A Very Festive Gift Guide’…

Tis the season to be jolly, fa la la la la, la la la la…
If you’re yet to do your christmas shop don’t fret. I’ve spent the last few months trawling through a pile of festive goodies to find the very best of whats out there to ensure that everyone has a very jolly christmas.
Who said the gym can’t be glamourous? Stay fit and fabulous with my 15 gym bag essentials!
There was a time, not too long ago, when a can of sugar free Red Bull was my go to pick-me-up of choice. Consumed pre-work out for an instant energy boost or mixed with vodka to dance the night away, I was (I shamefully admit) a red bull girl through and through!
Cashmere bobble hats, Catherine wheels and a socially acceptable excuse to dress your baby up as Donald Trump (umpa-lumpa tan and all) there’s something to be said about Autumn.
Dazed But Amazed, my latest obsession. Or rather following their beautifully styled Instagram account and drooling over their uber cool, hand screen-printed linen is.
Is your skin looking a little lack luster of late? Whether it’s a change in season, too much sun, poor diet or in my case too many late nights to count (nope I haven’t spent the summer in Ibiza, I’ve just been up feeding a newborn!), there are multiple factors that can leave our skin more lacking than lustful.
I’m regularly sent beauty products to review that come with some pretty impressive claims. Most fail to live up to expectation, yet every now and then I come across a product that, if you can believe it, actually does what it said on the bottle!
British summer may be over but we’re just a plane ride a way from basking in some warm autumn sun.
Other than feeding my inner snoop, one of the primary reasons I love Instagram is it’s ability to alert me to those little known brands I would have otherwise never heard of.
Can’t stand tights but the thought of flashing your pins breaks you out in cold sweats? With the warm weather showing no signs of waning, I’ve selected 8 fail safe products guaranteed to make even the even the most sun shy of legs look flawless.
Every chocoholic knows that kicking the good stuff isn’t easy but what if we had actually had an excuse to indulge in our obsession?
Who doesn’t love the transforming effects of a bold lip. Creating maximum impact with minimal effort, a bold lip can take you’re look from ‘crazy mum’ to ‘effortlessly stylish’ with a swish of a stick.
Whether you’re jetting off to some far flung land or heading somewhere a little closer to home, flying can leave your skin feeling dry and lifeless.
Sleepless nights, cracked nipples, mum-tums and hair that hasn’t seen a brush in days. Is it really any wonder us new mums can feel a little broken in those first few weeks?
Ensuring you get enough vitamins and minerals is always a good idea, and never more so than during pregnancy. But what vitamins and minerals should we be looking for and how will they boost ours and our unborn baby’s health?
Keeping up the motivation to exercise on a regular basis isn’t easy at the best of times, throw in pregnancy and all that comes with it; I’m talking an ever increasing belly, never ending tiredness, aches, pains and the desire to demolish entire packs of biscuits in one sitting, and it can seem like a task of Everest proportions.
As a beauty obsessive who loves to keep stubble free at all times (or at least tries to), I have long been a fan of epilating. It’s quick, effective, produces results that last for weeks and although admittedly can be rather painful at times, a lot more convenient than having to visit a salon every few weeks.
As a mum of boys (ok, one of them may be still in my tummy for another two weeks but that still counts right?) it can be easy to get disillusioned with the array of boys clothes on offer.
Love the idea of a barre workout but looking for something a little more dynamic?
