The biggest issue I’ve had this year with my own style is that I’ve always felt as though I’m just not daring enough. I’m not particularly wacky or unique and I haven’t got a trademark or signature style like other women do. If I walk into a clothes shop I’ll invariably go for items that are grey, black, tan or white – or reach for…

I seem to have been buying a lot of grey recently. I don’t know what that says about my personality but it does still seem to be all over the high street and worn by the fashionable folk on Instagram. What I really adore about the colour grey is that it goes with so much of my current wardrobe (i.e. pink, black, white) and looks stylish too. I…

Family… The twins are really enjoying preschool which is lovely as they have so many little friends. I have actually considered putting them in for more days (they currently do 3) as my work is SO busy lately; I keep swaying from one decision to another. The ‘Mum guilt’ however keeps eating away at me and so I don’t know what to do. I am not…

Can I confess something? Don’t tell anyone, but I have never owned, or used a slow cooker before. I know. I know. I am now a busy Mum…working freelance from home, with 3 year-old twins in preschool and a husband who works long hours. I therefore need efficiency and ease when making meals each night. Because I haven’t got hours and hours to stand preparing…

The change in the seasons and weather is always a bit tougher on me, as a Mum, when the winter blues can start to set in. I find it harder when the sun doesn’t burst through the curtains in the morning, calling me out to play each day. I am no longer getting up every morning with a spring in my step, or whistling away in the shower. The…

Lately it has been all about our new TV. Hubby went out last Sunday, alone, and bought us a new TV for our new living room. And the best bit is that Netflix comes with it – which we are absolutely ecstatic about! We are finally up-to-date and in the modern world! Not only has it got superb programmes for children (Paw Patrol, Peppa and all the kids…

Us Mamas need good, warm, weather-proof, practical coats for the school run and running errands this Winter don’t we? However, this doesn’t mean comprising on style. So when deciding on your new coat this season be sure to look out for coats with fur collars for a little more glamour, or stylish pattern, or go for luxury-feel textures such as wool. Here are my 6 favourite…

A little while ago I wrote a post outlining our plans to put a fireplace in our new living room. And as to how much of a difficult decision it was! Well, we finally made a decision, and it has arrived and is in our home! We went for the BeModern carina eco electric fireplace suite (£404.58) + free delivery by Wayfair. As pictured above.

Winter, with toddler twins, has been hard going. Last Summer, I had such fun with them. Light nights in the evening, trips to the park, picnics, ice cream, warm days out, or just pottering in the garden – made looking after two toddlers magical. Entertaining them in the sunshine was easy-peasy. And then Summer ended, and the dark nights hit us, and I felt as though all…
