Father’s Day 2016 – My Captured Moment


This week’s My Captured Moment is a few photo’s from Father’s Day, which was last week. We’d prepared presents the night before, so the kids were all super excited when they woke up and couldn’t wait to ‘help’ Simon open his presents. We went to Harvester for breakfast, and although the food was okay, the children were not. They were…

It’s all about survival!


When I’d first had the twins, I remember someone saying to me that she could always spot parents with three or more kids as they were more laid back than those who had one or two children. I didn’t really get it at the time, but it’s something that has always stuck with me and I think she might be…

Our trip to Norfolk


I’ve been meaning to write this post for a while now, but I never seemed to be able to get round to it. However, although I’m post well after our trip took place, it’s a trip that I want to capture as we had such a lovely time. During February half-term we went to Norfolk for a week long break.…

My beauty must-haves


I love beauty products and over the years have certainly tried a fair few. I love the thrill of trying a new product or discovering a new brand. As the beauty industry continues to evolve, there are always plenty of new products to try! However, now I’m in my thirties, I’ve found that I am now actually quite loyal to…

A bit of a catch up


If you’re a regular reader of my blog, you’ll know that at the end of every month I normally do a post about what we’ve been up to that month – a bit of a round up really. However, with my recent marathon training and the generally business of life with three kids, I haven’t managed to do on since…

My Captured Moment


This week’s My Captured Moment is a shot taken on our recent holiday to Dubai, which you can read about here. We had an amazing time and I think this photo captures that. The boys had gone to the kids club for a couple of hours but Heidi wanted to stay with us, so her and Simon went for a…

Our stay at the Atlantis, Dubai


During the May half-term break we went on holiday to Dubai. Simon and I have been a couple of times in the past – 10 years ago, pre-kids and five years ago when Oscar was 11 months old. Both times we loved it. The hotels are luxurious, the shopping is amazing, the beaches are beautiful and at just over six…

Hairven Beeston launch event


A couple of weeks ago I attended the launch event of the new Hairven salon in Beeston, Nottingham. I’ve been to the original Hairven in Gedling a few times and have always been impressed. However, I live near to Beeston, so was quite excited when I heard that Hairven had chosen Beeston to open their next salon. Being local, I’d…

#BlogCamp 2016


After posting on Friday night about being a bit anxious about attending BlogCamp, I’m delighted to report that it was fab! As soon as I arrived and joined the queue for coffee I got chatting to the lovely Becky from Pinks Charming, we had a pastry and a little chat before it was time to go into the main room…

My Captured Moment


It’s been a while since I’ve linked up to this link-up, but It’s one of my favourite ones, so I’m really going to try and link up more often. The link-up is ran by the lovely Heledd over at Running in Lavender  and it’s a great way to capture a moment every week. My Captured Moment is from last week. Henry…
