Spring Home Makeover


This year, I really want to go all out with a proper spring clean, I do not mean a deep clean, but a whole home revamps, from changing the flooring and finally installing double glazed windows, to officially completing my garden. We have been living in our home for nearly three years now and whilst I want us to move to a bigger house, I've been thinking about investing where we are for a further few years 

Now we are family in the middle of March and Spring officials fast approaching there is no time like the present to start getting things organised in preparation for a home update, Pinterest has always been the perfect place for me to start, check out some items that I've been pining here!

One of the biggest things, you need to think about when updating your home is budget, budgeting is key you got to think about what you need, what it will cost, what you love and does it fit, do you need people to do the job for you, can you do it yourself to save you a little extra cash, plus step away from what you do not need or can not afford. A great way to start is with a list, a list is essential, well apart from your style.

Knowing your style and the look you are going for will help you not overspend, it will also help you think about how the room or whole home will look, therefore not leaving you with a miss matched creation at the end. Whilst thinking of what you want in terms of style and look can be somewhat tiresome enjoy it, that way you are guaranteed to have a great outcome and a stunning looking home. To achieve this, you can always get 2d room layouts that way you can actually place everything you want and know what would look good and what will fit where. 

Next week I have a few days booked off and I am going to make the most of it, I actually plan on starting with the bathroom, I want to re-seal the bath and re-grout the tiles and most likely paint the bathroom too to give it a little refresh. I've also been thinking about possibly putting artwork in there also, to give it a completely new feel and possibly a nice tall plant, which I will no doubt be purchasing from Ikea. It is all about mixing things up, not changing anything too drastic, well not in the bathroom anyways, but I want to give it a new uplift and new vibe this Spring. 

What you have to remember when redecorating if not wanting to make vast improvements, is paint is your friend, it is a great way to make the whole house or room feel new, uplifted even, paint does not have to cost a fortune either, you can grab an affordable tin from even your local supermarket, they always have offers on so keep your eyes peeled. 

Are you springing cleaning your home or maybe just one room? Let me know in the comments below on which room you would like to redesign!

Feeling Ready To Date


Yeah, I know....dating, such a funny word, a little scary at times, but I’m ready to get back into it! A few years after Leanora was born I dated a few people, nothing serious, I then dated someone, when I was ready to get serious, but found that he was not serious or more to the point he wasn’t anything, be it serious about life or anything really, but as sweet and caring as he was, sweet  and caring doesn’t cut it really, not with me, whilst I want to meet a  sweet and caring person, I also want or like, someone that is ambitious and has a strong and funny personality, but whilst I have the notions of a weird science creation am I looking for someone that is not real or am I simply not ready to date and therefore my expectations are just too far fetched?!

Recently dipping my toe back into the dating game, I've been a bit brave and checked out some dating websites, downloaded a few apps and it took me ages to set up all my new profiles, it is about finding the right pic, then second guessing yourself if they are even the rights pics and do not even get me started on my profile, I mean where do you even begin, to get yourself out there, be it seen as funny, whilst wanting to be taken seriously and come over dare I say it, sexy, but not slutty! There is a fine line and I think I've found a perfect balance, all whilst staying true to myself. 

The question is where do you start, you hear of so many successes of people who have found the one, but with so many dating websites and apps, and I've tried most if not all from Tinder, Bumble and now Hinge it can be really tough. I did, however, end up connecting to one person, one, in particular, a guy that ended up being based in New York, I learnt my lesson real quick and just sticking to those in my demographic area instead of opening up my search worldwide, I'll be sticking to dating sites uk

I have only been on a very few amounts of dates, some have been fun, others a little bit more of a nightmare, what I have enjoyed most about it all is the build up the conversation and just putting myself out there again. To be truthful I did not think it possible, I became so wrapped up in becoming a good parent, homeowner, colleague and trying to get my business out there, I did not think I had time or felt it was even right to date, but I am making the time, because why would I not want to meet someone new. Whilst it can be hard it is about finding a balance as well as having a little something for you and your own wellbeing or simply just to have fun and let yourself go a little and it is all about being open to new people, new adventures, plus I think I am now ready to start going out more, I mean I can not live and hope I'll find the right one online, I'll be heading out there too, I mean not in bars, but i;ll be keeping my eye open you never know I could meet someone whilst feeling like I'm going to crumble in my next HIIT class, if I do, I pray they are quick enough and strong to catch me if I fall. 

How are you finding dating, have you meet someone online or in a work out class? I'd love to hear your dating tips in the comments below.

My Skincare Routine For Glowing Skin


Today I wanted to share with you a new beauty brand that I've added to my collection. I am always looking for something new I am a believer of trying new things to keep my skin guessing and refreshed. I feel at my best when my skin is looking and feeling right, every Sunday I like to start with an at home mini pamper session to prepare me back for whatever madness the week has installed for me. 

I may not keep up with a regular sleep pattern, work out routine and dare I say it a healthy eating habit, I've eaten one too many crips and indulged in far too many sweets these past few weeks, but one thing for sure, no matter what is that my skincare regime will always be on top form and comes first. 



Löwengrip, a leading Nordic beauty brand that has now become available here in the UK, they got in touch a few months ago and were kind enough to send me a few pieces that I had chosen. They are 100% cruelty-free brand, they know what women want and need and here to empower us with great skin and only use the best and most effective ingredients and I love that they take a whole holistic approach in product formulation. 

To get my skin back on track I've only been using Löwengrip to wash my face, I have very sensitive skin and a love for all exfoliators, some which can cause havoc and tear my skin leaving it a little raw, but I've been using the Purify My Skin - Facial Scrub religiously and my skin has never looked so brighter, it is suitable for all ages which are great, however you should only use it twice a week, but I like to go for 3 to help just even out my skin's tone and give it a deep clean. 


My dark circles and skin has looked a little tired, due to stress, work and life, it really has got me down a little bit and what I've learned in my 30 years,  if I was to have firm, plump glowing skin I have to take of it simple really, so at night I like to unwind with a few candles and after my face has been removed from all makeup and face fully cleansed I like to apply a good amount of the Sleep Sensation - Hydrating Mask. I wake up and my, when washed off my skin, feels firm, like it has a new lease of life, I feel so much better its brighter I feel more confident and not wanting to apply a heavy amount of makeup, but that said what has worked for me may not work for you, but it is about trying new things, find out what works for your skin and making you feel empowered enough to not want to reach for makeup but go out into your day with your head held high with great skin.

Whilst everyone has a different budget, this range from Löwengrip is affordable for all and great for those like me who have very sensitive skin. Below you can see the what I am using as well as some others from Löwengrip.

Brilliant Quorn Burgers



If you are looking for an excuse to eat a burger, I’ve got it for you! This Quorn burger is true heaven, there is nothing I love more than chowing down on a mammoth burger, be it for lunch, dinner at a family get together fresh from the bbq or my favourite one after a night out, they have never have tasted so good and these will change in the traditionalist meat burger lover.

A few weeks back I entered on Mumsnet a Quorns Brilliant Burger product trial and it was so good that I just had to share.

I’ve never had Quorn before in any of its forms so as I saw the application to trial these it was a no brainer and what better way for me and Leanora to ease into the Quorn life, with the Quorn brilliant burgers, especially as we are trying to consume a little less meat.


Sometimes you just need something a little naughty, but these Quorn burgers don’t make you feel like that, for me they still taste just as good, no even better than those from your local burger joint and a little more healthier and a lot more tastier. Serve with some seriously good sweet potato dukkah fries and boom life is complete!

Whilst the Quorn patties maybe a little on the small side for me, they are perfect for the kids and just double up and pile on your favourite toppings for you.


Ingredients

1 pack of Quorn brilliant burgers 
Pack of sesame buns
1 red onion sliced
Lettuce
Burger sauce (or ketchup)


Directions

1. remove burger from packaging and brush lightly with oil and place under the grill for 10 minutes, after the first 5 turn the burgers over and also place burger buns under the grill to toast or in a toaster for 2 minutes

2. take the bottom half of your burger pun and lightly spread a thin layer or burger sauce, top with your lettuce, burger, sliced on onion a squirt of more burger sauce another layer of lettuce and take the top half of your burger bun and spread another thin layer of your chosen burger sauce, then place on top.

optional
3. if you want to devour a larger burger after your second layer of lettuce repeat the steps in point 2.

Just The Two Of Us, With Room On The Broom



Something thing we love doing together is having fun and going on a wild ride, we love jumping on a train playing rock, paper, scissors and playing my favourite, eye spy on route to our next adventure. Over the weekend we went to explore Room On The Broom magical journey at Chessington thanks to 365 tickets

Quality time with Leanora has taught me so much about her and myself, things that I loved to do pre-parenting is a distant fond memory which I would never change for anything, but I am making better memories and forming a better bond now. Our bond doesn't just start by us doing fun things to together, but from the moment we wake and argue about why Leanora cannot eat ice poles first thing and why we can not paint poor Milo's nails in a rainbow array of colours.


We love the animated short film Room On The Broom, the book too by Julia Donaldson, so when I told Leanora that we were invited to a fun day out at Chessington for us to explore the brand new attraction that opens officially today I was not surprised she was as pleased as punch as I! The lead-up and since we've left attraction we've read the book a gazillion times, which is great as we are big readers and I always believe in encouraging our children to read, even if it is for 10 minutes a day.


The new attraction at Chessington takes you on an adventure throughout the book, situated in the castle by the main entrance, it is interactive and brilliantly designed it takes about 15 minutes to go all the way through, but fret not there is so much more to do and see be it the Gruffalo adventures, see the tropical birds, gorillas, and meet the tigers, it is really a brilliant day out for everyone you even get to meet a few creatures walking around with there handler and they have lots of information and knowledge to share about all the wildlife that live there. 

With Easter holidays around the corner, I would certainly recommend taking the kids for a magical day out, full of fun and learning.

Spring Dreaming Of Kture

This week the sun has been shining, the days are brighter for longer and more importantly, the flowers are blooming, which means only one thing, that spring is officially on its way and I am praying it is also here to stay.

Slowly I have been injecting a few new pieces into my wardrobe, a new blazer, a beautiful silky dress from Kenzo which I’m wearing time and time again, be it on its own or layered with a shirt over or a white T underneath plus a few stunning floral pieces, as well as that famous tiger jumper from Kenzo in the new neon yellow, perfect for those chiller nights out.

Talking of Kenzo, you must check out the range of Kenzo jumpers on kture.co.uk and there is a dress that I am badly eyeing up, it is a printed cotton midi dress, which has the cutest print of peacocks. It also comes in a shirt midi dress version which is cute also and would look great with trainers plus would look great teamed with a camel blazer. They have other new pieces that I am coveting, ok have stashed in my basket and saved as I am waiting till pay day to purchase!

I recently heard about Kture a one-stop glamorous shopping destination to help you curate your spring wardrobe. I get so excited when I find something new because I get to share it with you! Plus all these darling dresses on offer this Spring puts a smile on my face, along with all the dreamy pastels that come with Spring, the array of espadrilles, silky blouses, cute sunglasses and the must have bags there are plenty to choose from and I've found my top picks for SS19.


Kture is an all rounder, not only does it bring you all things shoppable fashion and gifts, but it also has a great highlight on what is trending and current at the moment in fashion to the best places to go skiing, the latest art exhibitions you must see plus they also even have a section of beauty buys for you also.

This spring I am looking for something a lot more feminine, completely out my comfort zone and just stepping away from black and leaving it behind for the Autumnal months. I've also started lighting up the house, I think that is what Spring does to us all, it lifts our spirits, day and not only Spring cleans our home but wardrobe too. I am looking for looser fabrics, flowy looks and a touch of linen and lighter colours to incorporate into my wardrobe.

Guys let me know what your favourite picks are and what you have your eye on over at Kture for this Spring. Would love to hear what you thought of this post in the comments below or even on Insta also and if you would like to see more Spring favourites!

Happy shopping and here is to fun in the Spring sun.

Hitting The Open Road


Nothing like packing up all the kids and hitting the open road for the weekend. Wither you are off further afield to Scotland or sticking around London for a getaway for a little r&r there are a few essentials I always make sure to pack and check.

Now L is older she is so much easier and fun to travel with, from playing eye spy, which in fairness she is still mastering, to playing checking off the checklist, of the items we need to even safety precautions of the vehicle it is great for us to bond but it teaches her to be responsible especially when travelling on the open road as London and Scotland to can have tricky traffic.

When it comes to the safety of my daughter and myself before heading out on a road trip I always get the car checked, the one thing I don’t want is to break down or end up in an accident. I remember when I was a kid and the whole family all my brothers and sisters cramped in my dad's car broke down due to the tyres being bald it was not nice especially as we were a long way off from our destination then had to wait a few hours for a recovery to bring us new ones. I mean can you believe my dads a mechanic and he is always talking about the importance of buying the right ones to carrying for them and making sure they are in good order and it’s always worth checking the tyre pressure and tread depth, plus keeping a spare in the boot always comes in handy and puncture repair kit. It is a well-known fact that bad tyres can make your vehicle prone to accidents. Your tyres have to be the perfect match and properly maintaining them is the key. For example, if your tyres are over or under inflated, they can make the vehicle lose its grip on the road. Another factor is that you should always choose your tyres depending on your driving behaviour and your own needs. For example, there are many variants available: summer, winter, budget and premium tyres. Each of the variations is designed to meet a certain need and you should always consult with an expert for a recommendation. Driving in local towns becomes more challenging especially when the tyres are not in optimum condition. Let's say you live in a local area like Glasgow (Byres Street, Ingram street or other areas), where roads can be busy depending on the rush hours. You don't want to travel and spend the time to look for an expert - so you can find an expert garage for Glasgow. It would save you time and money. One of the places for choosing tyres in Glasgow or surrounding places is from point S.

I always bring a small medical bag, you’ve got kids they are bound to fall over and get cuts and grazes, so an unlimited supply of antibacterial wipes and plasters always come in handy.

Sandwiches, water and snacks to are needed, no telling on what will happen especially if you are out in peak times and traffic is heavy plus it will keep the grumpy kid's happy no one wants to travel with a hangry passenger.

Moon Milk



I love nothing more than curling up in bed, before I sleep I like to unwind with a good book I try not to watch tv, as I feel like I can not switch off or if I even dare look at my phone and scroll through Instagram, that is it I've just spent the better part of 2 hours wired on my phone and find it hard to switch off and sleep.

I have never been to be fair the greatest sleeper, a million years ago when I used to work as a stylist in the day and then as an event manager at night, I used to turn to sleeping tablets to help aid me to get a good relaxing sleep, I soon learnt that this is not healthy nor a long term solution and certainly do not recommend it to anyone.


As you know I am trying to turn over a new healthy outlook this 2019, so when I heard about moon milk a natural tea to help you rest better I was game for trying it, plus it fits nicely in with my new outlook on wellness.

Moon Milk is essentially a jazzed up warm milk, as a kid I was never a fan of warm milk, probably why I was restless, up all night reading, instead of getting my good 8 hours in. Moon Milk is more of a jazzed up adult version of warm milk, with calming cinnamon and natural honey you can even put some turmeric in to it which has many health benefits, plus it gives it a great colour. You would of seen last year all the different hues and variations of Moon Milk sprung up all over Instagram.

I decided to opt for Oat Milk for my version of Moon Milk, it tastes better, plus it regulates sugar levels, can reduce bloating and cholesterol also, but any milk can be used, from normal cows milk, to almond, coconut or soya go nuts after all you will be consuming it so modify to your tastes.


Also, to achieve this blue colour I added butterfly pea flower tea not only for the colour but it too can help reduce stress, but you can leave it out if you wish. For example I used honey, you could use your favourite sweetener or maple syrup even  or if you don't want to add a slight sweetness, the choice is yours, it is all about your own personal taste.

Ingredients

1 cup milk of your favourite milk
1 tablespoon of honey
1 teaspoon butterfly pea flower powder
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon of freshly ground nutmeg, or to your taste

Directions
  1. Heat up a small saucepan over medium-low heat, whisk together milk with honey, butterfly pea powder, and spices until powder is dissolved and milk is warm
  2. Once nice and warm whizz up with an electric mixer to give you a nice froth on top
  3. Pour into warm mug, relax and enjoy

A new year, means new beginnings and a whole new wardrobe update, it's been a while since I've done a fashion post, mainly because there has not been anything out there that has stood out to me and I kind of did not have any fashion inspo, but last week on my lunch break and time to kill I stopped off in to Mango and I have to say I feel back in love with fashion all over again.

Podcast To Listen To Whilst On The Commute


On route to work, dashing to pick up the kids from school or simply stuck in traffic, we all face these daily rituals. I spend most of this time when doing any of the following, over thinking or not at all, just wasting time reading posters, or over hearing someone's music blasting from their headphones, whilst stuck on a cramped tube wishing that A I had brought a book with me, or B I can't access the book in my bag, as I'm sandwiched between a million people.

Podcasts I've never really listened to, whilst I have heard lots about it, friends making one, people raving about them on the tv and even reading about the latest hit in a magazine, I've never really listened to any, that was until recently.

Since listening to these podcasts, I have to say my commute has never been better, I'm even gutted that I've made my destination and I can not wait to be back on the move to pick back up from where I left off, I have to confess I've even waited around the corner for a few minutes just to hear the last part of the episode. I did however get caught out by my mum the other day, she asked why I waited to come in to pick up Leanora, I had to tell her the truth, her Leanora talk to damn much and if I came in I would of missed the bloody end (maybe not my finest hour as a mother and daughter, but she did ask).

My Dad Wrote A Porno
It is exactly what it says, a funny, cringe worthy podcast and I love it, I can honestly can not get enough of it. I mean, imagine your dad comes to you and asks you to read his porno, you then take it with two of your besties and every week read a chapter of weird dad porn to millions of readers. I've never laughed or cried so hard in my life, it is so horrifyingly bad, yet so great and is totally addicitive and worth it's weight in pots and pan gold.

Serial
All things true and disturbing in crime. Currently at season 3 and I am still on the first, by the time you've read this, I would of certainly made my way through the first chilling season, of did he really do it and who do I think did it and who could really commit such a horroific crime against another human and why! A chilling listen about a true story of a young girl murdered, her ex sentenced, always professes his innoncence but stated he was guilty in court, facts and evidence not checked properly a friend who claims on assisting with the cover and knew this young girl was going to be murdered, his story always changing

Have you listened to the podcasts, what do you think? Currently on a hunt for something new and funny and interesting, would love to hear what you recommend on me listening to next in the comments below!

Wellness Supplements From Link Nutrition

I strive to achieve great glowing skin, strong hair and nails, and boundless of energy to keep up with L. But alas now in my 30s and body changing due to pregnancy and pushing out a kid, I know and feel my body is missing and needing something extra.
The last time I had taken supplements was whilst pregnant and after, but a few months after Leanora was born I never took them again. Whilst I buy for Leanora the strawberry flavoured vitamin gummies, that I am sure most of us had as kiddos, I never pick any up for myself, most likely as for me I’m always an afterthought and as long as Leanora is good that’s good enough for me. Undoubtedly not a great way to think, L needs me to be strong and healthy and wants me to have a all the good things she has too (which I think maybe wine - NOT FOR HER! JUST ME!) from her vitamins, so when Link Nutrition got in touch it felt right and as the New Year was approaching and wanting to change and have a healthier lifestyle come 2019 it was the right decision.
Link Nutrition is a premium high-quality health supplement brand bursting with natural ingredients. They are the missing link between food and supplements, by bridging the nutritional gap a health booster if you will. Most food-based supplements are filled with synthetics containing isolated forms of vitamins and minerals, whereas Link Nutrition pride themselves in avoiding the fillers, binders and anticaking agents that feature in most synthetic supplements.
Mushroom Plus
Mushroom plus is the perfect all-rounder, packed with turmeric powder, known for it's anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, makes it great for the gut for those that like me can suffer from bloating, this supplement is suitable for vegans and those that also like me are on a gluten-free diet.
Vitamin D3
This is the perfect winter supplement. When in sunlight our bodies naturally create's Vitamin D3, but now we are amassed in mostly darkness are body and bones need a little help and these supplements help keep our bones, teeth and muscles healthy.
Vitamin C
This Vitamin C & Bioflavanoids is essential to have for a healthy lifestyle, it especially helps to combat colds. Vitamin C has been proven to contribute to the normal functioning of the immune system and taken daily, it does just that.
Since taking the Link Nutrition tablets, I have felt a lot better inside and out a lot less bloating and even perkier in the morning. The only downside about these supplement tablets is that they can sometimes feel like they are sitting on your chest, so make sure to drink PLENTY of water to help wash it down. it is probably due to the casing sticking!  I like to start my day with these and take just after breakfast at work. The containers are quite large so not ideal carrying them around, so I always fill up my Mon-Sunday pill box and pop it in my bag so it is always with me.

The Books To Start Your Year With



Last year I got back into reading this year in 2019 I am going to be growing my reading list bigger than ever.

Last year was all about fiction, this year my reading habit will change as I have changed, I'll be reading and sharing more interesting books such as biographies, self-help and I may go against the grain and share a romance, but it will have to be a damn good one!

I decided to m ease myself into it this year and I’ve started with two greats, a biography from a political great and strong woman and a new book by a famous actor, totally unplanned books being from two people that I truly admire but I am glad I started with these.

A woman like no other, a first in the history America’s First Lady of colour, a sassy and smart funny woman that is Michelle Obama. There has been so much excitement around this book Becoming and it is evident why a beautiful and inspiring first hand look into her life and the trials and tribulations of growing up in America and becoming one of the most powerful and admired woman all over the world.

Tom Hanks, an amazing actor and who knew a brilliant writer Uncommon Type: Some Stories is a collection of amazing stories that I’d be more than happy to read again and again, I just wish I had him on speed dial to read these stories to me. In the book, there are 17 well-written stories perfect for a commute to work or even a light night time read each story I devoured they are moving, humorous and utterly engaging and making you yearn for more, from Mr Hanks.

What books have you started reading this year? Have you read Michelle Obama or Tom Hanks book, what did you think?

Weeknight Polenta With Roasted Mushrooms


This polenta with roasted mushrooms is an all-time favourite of mine in the winter. It’s warming, indulgent and ever so comforting, great for lunch or a weeknight dinner.

This dish I normally save for myself when I’m home alone, one because I hate to share and secondly, Leanora is not a fan of mushrooms, so more for me in my tummy, another bonus is, it takes no time at all to make after a long day at work no one wants to be in the kitchen slaving away.


January calls for something healthy, I have even decided to start growing my own vegetables and I’ve just purchased my first ever bag of seed potatoes, I’ll let you know how it goes! Whilst this dish is somewhat a little bit naughty with all the cheesy goodness in the polenta, the vegetables totally balance's out the healthy vs naughtiness ratio, well in my eyes anyway.


INGREDIENTS
Polenta
Parmesan
Salt
Pepper
Chestnut mushrooms
Fresh thyme
Bullion (vegetable stock)
Butter

DIRECTIONS
  1. Line a baking tray with some parchment paper and lay out your chopped mushrooms, add 4 cloves of garlic a few sprigs of thyme, season with salt and pepper, 3 tbsp of olive oil, enough to cover but not saturated the ingredients and toss gently and make sure all ingredients are coated and mixed together and place in on middle shelf of the oven at 180c
  2. Boil the kettle and grab a saucepan add 1 1/2 cups of boiling water to pan once bubbling add your bullion.
  3. Add into your pan the polenta and stir until all lumps are out. Stir in 150g of grated Parmesan and a small bun of butter to make extra creamy. Once it all comes together season if desired with pepper.
  4. Take out your roasted mushrooms and plate up on top of your polenta.
Bon appetite.

Super quick and easy to make. A truly indulgent dish which I like to have with a nice glass of red wine enjoyed on the sofa with a few candles burning and my fave podcast in the background. 

Let me know if you make this polenta with roasted mushroom dish and let me know your thoughts in the comments below.
