I’m sure I don’t need to tell you what beauty shared this on her instagram before Christmas:  @carolineflack you’ve broken my heart.

She was funny. Caring. Kind. Absolutely beautiful and that smile lit up the world. Not perfect. But who is? No one.

I can’t comprehend how someone of such radiance and sparkle can end their life. But I only assume her mental health was suffering. She felt so trapped that was her only way out. A way of ending the pain that nobody could see.

Mental health is invisible; yet mental health is all consuming. Mental health is complicated; yet mental health can be helped with a simple cup of tea and chat.

Smile on the inside and on the out.

Make time for yourself.

Love yourself.

Make time for others.

Be kind.

Always. 
In a world where you can be anything, be kind  #bekind #ripcarolineflack

I’m sure I don’t need...

This is sheer appreciation. This man. My lobster 🦞. Who made me the scrummiest meal last night & dreamy Vegan brownies. Showered me with thoughtful gifts & my cute note (in my stories) I recieved in my lunch bag.

However, I was a complete emotional wreck yesterday as my Grandma was taken into hospital. She was distressed, confused and sounding a little slow. It was scary.

So the Valentine’s Day love went all to Grandma from my family; wishing & hoping they find out what’s wrong.

We’re currently waiting to find out if her BP has reduced. It was sky high. Hoping she’s better & I can bring her home today.

This photo was from last Summer when we went to @carluccios in Cambridge. I love it. Happy memories. I’m lucky to have these. Noahs a people watcher, he was distracted with the crowd. Incidentally Carluccio’s have the offer on again: kids eat for a £1... #appreciation #family #love #mummyphotoaday

This is sheer appreciation. This...

Happy Valentine’s Day 🤍

A lot to be thankful for today. Love is a big word. I love these two quotes and perfect for today.

Yes it’s about celebrating your life with your lobster 🦞(mine is rather amazing) but it’s also about family.

Family is not just an important thing. It’s everything. So true.

I don’t know where I’d be without my lobster and my family... I hung these beauts in our bathroom and I love them. They make me smile everytime I clean my teeth! Which helps 😂

I love this new story corner I’ve created for Isla, with a little help from @vertbaudetuk. It is a gorgeous space and I couldn’t wait for her to get home and see it. She was so happy!

I love the large floor cushion, I want an entire room kitted out with them so I can just chill in the middle. It would be so cosy. Or even just #half a room! 🤍

Isla loves reading and so I thought this little corner would be perfect for her. She loves it.

I started with the floor cushion, I hung the coat rack for her monkeys and dressing gown and then I hung the shelves. They are so cute. I finished it all off with the mirror. I love all the colours and shapes. It really finishes off her room.

Who else wants the futon cushion? 🙋🏼‍♀️ #mummyphotoaday #ad

I love this new story...

I love trying new makeup, especially the vegan variety! I’ve recently discovered the fab range from @ex1cosmetics - you can grab them at your local @superdrug. So easy to find when you run out.

I’ve done a bit of a makeup tutorial on the blog using the EX1 Cosmetic products. Please forgive me, my skin is awful at the moment. Since I’ve been exercising more my skin has been really spotty. The spots that hide under the skin too!

If you swipe left then you’ll see the fab products I used. Then check out my stories for the swipe up link to my blog post.

I’m no make up artist haha. I prefer natural tones, that give my face #warmth. These products are perfect for that, especially the pink blusher! I wanted to show you what the products do and how they can be used together. Perfect makeup for your Valentine’s Day date!

I love trying new makeup,...

A place to relax. A place to hide. A place to #doodle. A place to confide.

This place is my haven. It’s my safe space to relax and unwind. It’s absurd that at 37 years old, I just can’t wait to get into bed. When hubby goes climbing on a Monday evening; I’m in bed at 8pm! Is that sad?

Because it makes me happy, the bed is super comfortable and it is the only room in the house that the kids do not destroy, it’s nice to cling on to it. Keep it that haven.

If I need 5 mins to compose myself, I’ll hide in here. The kids drive me up the wall sometimes and hiding in here can calm me down. A technique I’ve developed over the years so the kids do not see Mumma lose it!

Anyone else love their bed? Or bedroom as a whole? I’m sure I’m not the only one haha #mummyphotoaday

When you have a #favourite day with some great memories. Happy memories. It’s so nice to reflect back on it and reminisce.

This Winter Sun family day out at Norfolk still makes me feel happy when I think about it. These gorgeous smiles say it all.

However, you wouldn’t of thought this earlier before school. They had the most angry faces, shouting and being quite mean to each other. I’m hoping it’s just tiredness from the weekend. They’ve definitely come home happier than when they left!

It’s nice to look at photos that make you happy. Especially when you’re not feeling that happy, in that moment.

Whenever there’s a #woodland we’ll be there! Sung in the Dangermouse tune. Anyone else remember that?

This photo clearly wasn’t from today, I think the entire nation stayed clear from the woods and trees. It does make us happy when we’re running wildly amongst the forests though.

The kiddies had a fab day playing crazy golf (indoors) with Nanna today. Then had pizza too. Whilst the kiddies had their fun, Mummy & Daddy enjoyed a belated birthday treat; afternoon tea. My favourite. It was very lovely.

Early night & call the midwife for me... hope everyone’s had a great weekend despite the storms... #mummyphotoaday

Instinct new drama on Sky Witness #FeelTheDrama

Instinct is a new drama on Sky Witness that is based around NYPD and a former CIA agent. First impressions, after about 5 minutes of episode one, I knew I would like it as it reminds me of Elementary. Another of my faves. It started on 23 August 2018 and it is on every Thursday at 9pm. Don’t forget to set up your series link… 

General overview 

This show is fantastic, each episode is a new investigation, a new set of clues that NYPD detective Lizzie has to fathom out. Over the first few episodes you get to see why Lizzie doesn’t have a partner on the job but Dr Dylan Reinhart soon comes to her rescue. They make a very good team with his ability to profile sociopaths and her great detective skills. With their quick qips and unlikely pairing, these two will instantly become your new favourite crime-fighting duo!

Although Dylan has returned to teaching, Lizzie calls upon his expertise with profiling sociopaths to assist with a bizarre case in which a venture capitalist was murdered and his body ritualistically displayed.

Main characters 

So far, we have met Lizzie, the NYPD detective who has had some troubles in her life – that she is still overcoming. She has a cute dog called Gary, who means more to her than meets the eye. Then we have Dr Dylan Reinhard, the former CIA agent who has connections all over New York and is a genius. He profiles sociopaths, he’s very clever. I would absolutely love to have that job and those skills. Dylan’s partner, Andrew, is also in the show quite a lot – he is a former lawyer who has opened his own business and is a huge support to Dylan. They make a cute pair. 

Although Dylan has returned to teaching, Lizzie calls upon his expertise with profiling sociopaths to assist with a bizarre case in which a venture capitalist was murdered and his body ritualistically displayed.

Summary

Three episodes in and I have learnt a lot about the main characters, how they have come together and you get to know a bit more about them each time we meet them. Which is nice. For example in episode three you meet Lizzie’s sister. Each episode is a new crime and I love trying to work out who did it before Dr. Dylan Reinhart – I never do! 

Do you have any favourite shows you are watching at the moment, if so I would love to hear them in the comments below or on social media: @mummyconstant. I would completely recommend this show, on Sky Witness, channel 117 on your Sky Q boxes!
