    Father’s Day: Lockdown Gift Ideas

    Father’s Day – a tricky one for me and I feel a little bit of a fraud writing a post suggesting gifts for Dads. Why? Well, I didn’t have a Dad growing up, it was my Sister, my Mum and me. So I really do not know what having that Father figure in your life is all about. What I will say is, I had the BESTĀ  Mum in the world to have brought my sister and me up as a single parent. She was both Mum and Dad, I do send her a text every year saying “Happy Father’s Day!”. There was only one thing I wanted when I…

    What I Eat In A Day

    Happy Tuesday guys!! I hope you all had a brilliant bank holiday weekend, no school runs – whoop whoop! Lots of people have messaged me to ask what I’m currently eating, so one day last week I tracked everything I ate and here it is. 6.15am This was an early start but I’m used to getting up before my alarm goes off. I’ve always been a morning person and find it easy to get up and get cracking with the day. I start my morning with taking Thyroxine for my underactive thyroid, I let this go down for around 15 – 20 minutes then I have a probiotic. The only…

    What I Ate Today

    I’m back with another ‘What I ate today’ post. I love seeing what people eat, one, because I’m nosy and two, because it gives me meal inspiration. Breakfast – 7.00am No surprises here, my favourite breakfast of all time – Nomadic Yogurt & Oat Clusters. Charlie loves these so I have to sneak my breakfast as he will be straight in there even if he’s had his porridge. Lunch – 12.00pm I was starving today, I’ve been to the gym this week and it makes me ravenous. I crave all the carbs it is so hard to resist so I try and stick with healthy carbs and protein. Today I…

    Monthly Favourites – May 2018

    Another month has been and gone, May was fab weather wise wasn’t it? I have lots of favourites from last month to share with you so let’s get cracking. Saltwater Rose Gold Slides I have admired Saltwater sandals for years, although they look fab on others I really didn’t think I would own a pair. Not being horrible but, the traditional style look a bit granny-ish for me and I would not be brave enough to pull a pair off. Having said that, I was utterly delighted to see Hannah MichalakĀ  wearing a pair of these rose gold slides they looked so gorgeous I just had to brave it and…
