🌳 I would love to live in the countryside, by vast woodlands & coastal paths. It’s the dream. However, I forget just how much beauty there is just outside my door.

This little woodland, for example, is full of life & only a 30 second walk from my house. I find it calming & I just love taking slow walks through here. Listening to the birds!

I’ve promised myself to get more steps in, and appreciate natures little pockets that I live near. After all, it can only make me appreciate the countryside whenever we do find our dream home.

Do you forget about the pockets of nature near you?

Making memories 🥳

This was Isla’s first family selfie using her birthday present. She loves taking photos and I can see her following in Daddy’s footsteps when she’s older. She’s very creative.

We’ve managed to spread out Isla’s birthday celebrations over an 8 day period. Perfect if you ask me. She’s loved it!

Anyone love taking photos? Of everything? All the time?

And she’s jumping into her birthday like…

💙💗 We had a super fun time at the trampoline park tonight, hot dogs and slushies. Cupcakes and sweets. Then to the park to burn off the sugar high and cool them down a little.

It was lovely to see them all playing and having fun… Isla loved it. I learn so much from her, how to let go and how to have fun. She’s my little ⭐️.

I cannot believe my baby is 10 tomorrow 😭 I want my baby girl back with her diddy feet.

What’s your favourite memory of the newborn stage?

My favourite skies are deep with blue and white fluffy clouds scattered about too. I visualise patterns and shapes in the clouds just for fun… it’s amazing this planet that lives under the sun!

I’m doing my bit to look after the planet; walking where I can, compost, I don’t eat meat or fish, using less water and getting rid of single use plastic.

I want to keep seeing the beautiful views and making cloud patterns and shapes. Do you do that when the sky is full of white fluffy clouds?

With it being my little babies 10th birthday in one week, it’s making me reflect on all the fun adventures and activities we’ve had over the years.

This is one of my favourite photos from April 2015. Isla was not quite 4 here and Noah is 5. They’re soo tiny. I remember Noah trying to explain to Isla what they’d be doing back at the holiday cottage.

They’ve always been very active. In fact I think they were more active when they were younger! 😂

Do you go through photos of your little ones when approaching their birthdays? 💜

Our Sunday looked a lot like this. A lovely dog walk in the woods and beautiful villages. Chocolate box cottages and wild animals everywhere.

We even saw low flying planes at the Shuttleworth Air Show. It was amazing.

3 generations out on our walk today; Nanna, me, my sister & Isla. There was also 3 generations of doggy!

We had a quick pub stop for a drink and back to Nanna’s for a yummy roast dinner.

I love walking. I wish I could walk and explore all day everyday. Fresh air and beautiful scenery!

How did you spend your Sunday?

The new vegan menu at The Flying Horse Clophill

The new vegan menu at The Flying Horse Clophill

You will have seen from my Instagram stories and feed this week that Hubby and I got to see the newly renovated and new menu at The Flying Horse in Clophill. The pub officially opened last night, to the public, and they have a lot on offer. I haven't been there for years and it was a complete shock when I walked in. It looks truly beautiful. And the menu is totally worth the visit... VIEW the POST

Making the most out of your Filofax

One of the things I love about my Filofax is that it is re-useable. I have had this raspberry Filofax from Pen Heaven for years now and I love that I get to use it again and again… this year I have even added some accessories to it. I like having a space to doodle, write my reminders and it is handy too as it fits in my handbag. I sit in a coffee shop each week, whilst Isla is at Gymfinity and I doodle away.

Back to University essentials that you didn’t think you needed

You know the kind of things I mean; the not so obvious items are sometimes the most valuable items. I have lots of things in this list that would be extremely useful for going back to University; whether that’s remotely, like me, or to a physical uni. I would love to know if you have any top tips on things you need, or even the most peculiar item. They are all back to university essentials.

We love the paddling pool at this time of year, Isla just loves water and would play in it all day if I let her. Especially on the warmer days that we have seen recently.

Making breaks exciting whilst working from home with SMASH BLUE

Making breaks exciting whilst working from home with SMASH BLUE

Since last March, I have been working from home and this comes with a lot of discipline and routine. For example, I am as bad as the kids for grabbing snacks from the cupboard. When SMASH BLUE released their new products I thought they are perfect for us grown ups working from home, or out on a day trip with the family. They are great, innovative, products and I can't wait to show them and how they can transform your working day. VIEW the POST

How to keep the motivation for your mile a day of fresh air

Something that has stuck with me from lockdown 1, last March, is getting out for our mile a day of fresh air. It forced us to get walking into our routine as it was the only thing we could do, really and leaving the house once a day to do exercise was the limit. It feels like a different lifetime ago, but there are some lovely benefits to come from it.

Exclusive outfits for Mummy and me with glamify fashion

If I had had 2 children from the same sex, I would be putting them in the same clothes as often as I can. However, I didn't and in fact their tastes are so very different. Instead I get my twinning fix by matching up with Isla myself; like outfits from the Mummy and me range from glamify fashion. It is so cute and Isla loves matching Mummy, it really made her smile when I first showed her the 2 matching outfits. Twinning is definitely winning. VIEW the POST

A cleaner cuppa with the amazing BRITA Filter Purity kettle

I love a nice cup of tea and since working from home I have had a lot more of it. With that I wanted to make sure I am getting a cleaner cuppa. We tried out the BRITA filter Purity kettle from Russell Hobbs. It is by the far the best kettle I have ever used and it looks really stylish too. I love the way it aluminates the kitchen in blue when it is in use. BRITA sent me this fabulous kettle to try out and give you my honest opinion. VIEW the POST

Learning how to wine taste with the Wine List #WineListInTheWild

Eco-friendly and vegan products you need in your beauty regime

Eco-friendly and vegan products you need in your beauty regime

Did you know it's World Earth Day on April 22nd 2021 and World Environment Day on 5th June 2021? From the plastic packaging filling land fills, to cosmetic chemicals washing away down the drain and disrupting marine life; our beauty routines can make a huge impact. Over the past year I have been looking out for eco-friendly and vegan products to introduce into my beauty regime. I am really conscious about what products I use, where they come from and how they are made. With more and more brands conscious about this too, products are easier to find and in most cases, I find, better than the originals. My quandary is; if vegan ice cream tastes the same, if not better than, normal ice cream - why not make it all vegan? Here are some products I have been using and I love them. VIEW the POST

Getting back into the active game with Dare2b

It’s no secret that I dropped any kind of cardio last year, it wasn’t the top of my priorities and I definitely didn’t have the time during the day.

The Thrive 30 challenge with Naturopathica

Naturopathica recently sent me some CBD capsules to try out for 30 days to see how I felt and record my journey to share with my readers. It was refreshing to try them as it left me feeling less anxious and calmer. Which, with all the announcements from the government, work being stressful and homeschooling – it was really needed! Looking after our mental health is really important, and as a mental health first aider I am really keen on exploring new ways to improve my mind and health.

One Fine Dine a real master chef experience at home

One Fine Dine a real master chef experience at home

I absolutely adore master chef, I am in total awe of all the chefs that go on there as I literally do not have a clue. It would be a dream for me to eat at Marcus's Michelin restaurant. Obviously with lockdown, restaurants closing and finding ways to explore good food from home: I was so excited to try out One Fine Dine. They make up the most delicious food, deliver it to your door and all you have to do is heat it and serve it. I made master chef food, all by myself. OK, well I didn't cook it. It felt amazing! This is the perfect gift for for 2021. VIEW the POST

How to get the most out of your trainers

How to get the most out of your trainers

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! VIEW the POST
