Since I had the kiddies my style has changed. What once was full of high heels and platforms, is now comfortable flats and trainers. I love my trainers too, they are perfect for fun family days out. We have been on lots of adventures over the past couple of months (despite lockdown) and having the right footwear for long days of walking is essential. They go really well with my collection of fleeces too!
The dogs absolutely love their Forthglade natural dog food and so I couldn’t wait to show them the new limited edition recipe, perfect timing for Autumn. Beef with Pumpkin & Broccoli is a great way of celebrating Autumn and the dogs love the flavours so much. Have your dogs ever eaten pumpkin before? Ours give it a Paws Up!

I struggled with what to wear at the beginning of lockdown, all of a sudden my workwear started collecting dust in the wardrobe. Loungewear and comfortable tee’s became the new work wear, no one really sees what you wear (if you turn the conference camera off). However, as lockdown continued and as my plan to work from home is long term, I want to break out of the loungewear a little. So here is my working from home style… Autumn edition.
Yes, I love stationery! Some might say borderline obsessed, so when I was asked to review some of the new Pepper and Cute range, I couldn’t wait. They have some extremely cute stationery items, including a new min-year diary, phone cases and toiletry items. If you are looking at a way to match your stationery and toiletry items, then look no further!
With many other people during lockdown, I am counting down the days until I can book a Spa day with my friends and relax in peace and comfort. Until then, I am trying to create my Spa moments at home and finding time to relax as much as possible. As other home working and home-schooling parents, getting 5 minutes in the day is quite tricky, so I have been forcing myself to take time.
I love jam, I have it on a lot of food; jam on toast or jam on scones (perfect for a family picnic in the garden). It seems to be my happy food during lockdown. It’s now getting to that time of the year when the fruits are starting to grow and will soon be ready for picking, so we can make our very own jams. The following are Tropical Jams that I wish the supermarkets would sell, or I could get hold of the fruits to make it ourselves.
We have loved being at home with the cat and dogs during lockdown. It’s nice as our Rambo (the Jack Russell) has developed a really close bond with Noah. He follows him everywhere and cleans him, like he’s looking after him. It’s so cute. We have been having fun with the dogs, using the training treats to get them to sit and give paw. The kids love it when the dogs do what they ask!
We love baking with peanut butter, Easter is usually a celebration for baking in our house. This year we have been baking everyday since March 23rd and so we are finding fun recipes that we haven’t tried before. You may have seen our peanut butter and jam cupcake recipe, well this one is peanut butter and chocolate cupcakes. Yummy.
