When cosmetic surgery is necessary for more than just vanity


Cosmetic surgery can often be quite a controversial topic, mainly because people assume it’s about vanity and trying to improve appearance. However, cosmetic surgery actually goes way beyond that and I’m hoping this post will help make people more aware of the ‘other side’ of cosmetic surgery. Cosmetic surgery is often used to aesthetically improve one’s appearance, typically to increase…

Childrens’ body odour – breaking the taboo


When Oscar first started school, I was really shocked to find that at the end of the school day he often had a bit of a whiff about him. I always assumed that children didn’t really get body odour until they hit the puberty years, however, this isn’t the case and childrens’ body odour is now actually quite common. After…

The bob

My new hair style – the bob


For a couple of years now, I’ve been attempting to grow my hair. When I made the decision to grow it I had visions of long, lustrous locks. However, the reality hasn’t really lived up to my expectations. Firstly, longer hair takes so much longer to dry and style, this coupled with the fact that I have three children to…

Capturing our moments {December and January}


It feels like ages since I’ve written one of these posts, in fact it’s been far too long since my last post (must try harder)! We’ve had a pretty busy couple of months. As always, December was manic. January was thankfully less busy. To save lots of waffle in these posts, I’ve decided to make them mainly photo based, with…

A letter to Oscar on his seventh birthday


Dear Oscar Today you turned seven! I know it’s a huge cliche, but I can’t quite believe how quickly the past seven years have gone. As I said to you this morning, seven years ago you changed my life – you made me a mummy. I wrote about the day you were born a couple of years’ ago, you can…

Reflecting on 2016


Although I’m not that into making new year resolutions, as the new year beckons I always like to take a bit of time to reflect on the year gone by. I thought I’d share my reflections with you in my final post of 2016. 2016 has been a pretty good year! We’ve had some brilliant holidays (Norfolk, Dubai, Benahavis and a…

Birthday celebrations

Capturing our moments {October & November}


I’ve been a little quiet on here recently. Once again, life has been silly busy and despite my best intentions I haven’t got round to posting in a while. I have the biggest list of posts that I want to write and share, but it’s that crazy time of year, so blogging is just not happening at the minute! I…

Our Bonfire weekend {including a video}


Life has been a little manic lately, so I haven’t posted on here in a few weeks. I’ve been keen to share with you details of what we got up to for Bonfire weekend, but I’ve really been struggling to get a bit of time to write this post. As I mentioned about a month ago, I’m keen to trying…

Weight loss

Struggling with Slimming World – weight loss update


For the past four weeks I’ve been following the Slimming World plan and as a result I’ve lost 2lbs. Although you can eat a lot on the plan, I’m just finding that for me it just isn’t working fast enough. I was following it really rigidly too, so the lack of results was really frustrating me! When I’m trying to…

Vlogging

First steps into the vlogging world


A few months ago I set myself some blogging goals, which I shared on here. One of those goals was to start vlogging. Some of my favourite bloggers also do some great vlogs, which have really inspired me. Also, as my blog is about capturing our memories as a family, using video is a perfect way to ensure we do this.…
