For many of us, obtaining that model size figure we all see strutting down the catwalk can be unachievable. It’s a known fact that many women struggle with our bodies or may even be just naturally larger than what is sometimes perceived as ‘average’. My body has changed so much since having my beautiful children. But that is not to stay that us curvier women still can’t be fashionable. Although dressing a frame that has been blessed with womanly curves can sometimes seem difficult, there are some tips that can ensure you accentuate your body in all the right places. Below is a list of seven fashion tips that will help you to look and feel fabulous, whilst letting you and all those around you embrace those glorious curves.
I have had a lull the past week. By that I mean I have not really done any exercise in terms of running, swimming or classes. I find it really hard to keep on top of my fitness when I have had a stressful day. The silly thing is I know that doing exercise will make me feel great afterwards! The children and work/life balance is weighing on my mind so much, that I am just worn out come the evenings and I have been not motivated.
Sleep hygiene is the habits and practices that are conducive to sleeping well on a regular basis. Without practicing effective and consistent sleep hygiene, it is difficult for our bodies to know when it’s time to wind down and doze off. I do this all the time, and about 6 months took the decision to leave my iPhone downstairs so I cannot be tempted to look at it before I go to sleep. There are a few things you can do every night to ensure you get the most rejuvenating, restful sleep possible. I’ve put together a few guidelines to get you started!
Welcome back to #SilentSunday for 17 July 2016, today is a photo that Isla took yesterday and I really love it.

As you may have noticed across my social media channels, it was our wedding anniversary on Monday. Hubby and I had an extremely lucky opportunity. Not only did we get a weekend of no children and no pets (actual alone time). Sometimes its not all about the family activities. Sometimes you need a bit of grown up time. We got to spend our weekend at the most fantastic place, with great food and a beautiful room: Bosworth Hall and Spa. Bosworth Hall and spa is a fabulous hotel owned by Britannia Hotels. We had such a lovely weekend relaxing, but making the most out of the hotel and spa facilities. It was the perfect way to spend our anniversary weekend.
Buying your first home can be an exciting time, especially if you are looking forward to finally owning a home of your own and no longer putting money into the pocket of your landlord after renting for so many years. However, first time homebuyers often look at the benefits of buying a home and forget that there are some hidden expenses that they need to account for. When planning for your very first home purchase, take ample time to learn about those hidden expenses and then learn how to budget for your home so that you aren’t confronted with unexpected costs that you now can’t afford. We have been saving for quite some time now and I am getting excited about the light at the end of the tunnel.
Noah and Isla received a couple of the new classic Peppa Pig toys recently. They love Peppa Pig and have got into it more so over the past year. They love sitting and watching Peppa Pig together, its the one thing that the children do not argue over. Which is always nice. We love laughing at the end of the episodes with the Pig family and so to receive the laughing Peppa Pig was a bonus. It made us giggle just like they do in the program.
Please tell me I am not the only parent to constantly repeat this sentence? It is a whirring cycle of “play nicely” and then “destroy eachother” – repeat until bedtime. Why can’t they just play nicely all of the time? It makes you feel quite drained by the end of the week. Literally, all of our lovely moments are followed by the children fighting.
Recently I was sent a beautiful set of ring stacks from Annie Haak. I love ring stacks, I think they make your hands look really pretty and when I came across Annie Haak I couldn’t resist. Each of her ring stacks are designed to make you stand out this summer – perfect for our Cruise next month!
