💙💚 This weather is just beautiful. I can’t wait to spend more time with nature. Evening walks through natures routes and paddling under the sunshine.

I haven’t seen much of the sunshine this week; I’ve been quite unwell and going to bed early to give myself energy for the next day. I’m hoping it will pass soon, so I can enjoy some sunshine over the weekend.

How has your week been?

🎂 Yesterday we had a very successful family party for Isla’s birthday. 🥳

Isla and I made her watermelon themed cake, we baked scones and a zillion sandwiches. It was so nice to have everyone around, as we haven’t done that for years. I think there was 16 of us in total!

I love decorating the table for an Afternoon Tea. It always looks so pretty. I used the Garden Party in a box from @lucydarlingshop.

All the sandwiches went down a treat. We had cheese, ham, chicken, egg mayo and tuna mayo! I’ve rekindled my love for a cheese & pickle… 

What’s your favourite sandwich?

🌳 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? 💜

Easy nightly cleansing routine that everyone can do

Easy nightly cleansing routine that everyone can do

The pandemic has influenced our facial complexions. Staying the whole time indoors, allowed only one hour of exercise a day, definitely took its toll. And, the stress of being a working woman and a mother paid its price on my mental wellbeing, which, of course, comes out on your complexion. Be it dark circles, frown lines, or facial dryness, staying inside can influence your face in so many ways. After a heavy fortnight of camping I really needed to get back into my cleansing routine. Not the mention the mask-wearing when we came out of lockdown but were still amid a pandemic. Wearing masks in shopping centers and on trains or buses for hours at a time causes the same air to circle your face, meaning it’s a breeding ground for bacteria. So, even when you take it off after traveling or work, the damage may already be done. VIEW ...
