Happy International Women’s Day
 I’m lucky enough to have grown up with independent & strong women all around me. It’s where I get my resilience & determination from.

It’s something that I want to ensure Isla has too: to be resilient is to have patience and strength. To keep a smile, even if deep down it’s painful. Determination is to have focus and passion. To keep going even if the end is not quite in sight.

I can see a lot of this in her already
 she is far more confident than I ever was at 10 and she knows her own mind. Which I love.

Now I need to make sure she has self confidence, self awareness and self love. So she can endure all that life throws at her and she can listen to her body & mind to guide her. 

I love that I’m still learning things about myself on this motherhood journey: some of those things I’m learning from Isla.

I’m very proud of my baby girl đŸ„°

Get cleaning the air fryer with me
 đŸ§Œ A slightly different post from me tonight: a handy little tip for cleaning your air fryer.⁣
⁣
There’s something about a cleaning tip that makes cleaning that bit đ˜Łđ˜Šđ˜”đ˜”đ˜Šđ˜ł. We use the air fryer everyday, we love it. Keeping it clean is important.⁣
⁣
So: ⁣
⁣
â–Ș add đ—łđ—źđ—¶đ—żđ˜† đ—čđ—¶đ—Ÿđ˜‚đ—¶đ—± to the trays⁣
â–Ș add water to đ—°đ—Œđ˜ƒđ—Č𝗿 the plates inside the tray⁣
â–Ș air fry for 𝟯 đ—șđ—¶đ—»đ˜€âŁ
⁣
If you’ve only been cooking vegetables and things like that then this is đ˜Žđ˜¶đ˜§đ˜§đ˜Șđ˜€đ˜Șđ˜Šđ˜Żđ˜” to clean the trays. Simply rinse and dry. ⁣
⁣
If you’ve cooked meats or food that sticks to the trays, like cheese, then give it a good wash afterwards. The air frying will have helped to release those foods!⁣
⁣
𝗛𝗼𝘃đ—Č đ˜†đ—Œđ˜‚ đ˜đ—żđ—¶đ—Čđ—± đ˜đ—”đ—¶đ˜€ 𝘆đ—Č𝘁?⁣

⁣
I just love it. It’ll be the only flower I can’t actually kill. I either water them too much or not enough
 it makes me quite sad. I have a wisteria not doing so great at the moment, so I need tips!!⁣
⁣
Fun fact: 2 of the 4 plants you can see in this photo are real. đ˜žđ˜©đ˜Șđ˜€đ˜© 𝟾 đ˜„đ˜° đ˜șđ˜°đ˜¶ đ˜”đ˜©đ˜Ș𝘯𝘬 𝘱𝘳𝘩 𝘧𝘱𝘬𝘩? And I gave you a rather big clue in my first paragraph đŸ€ŁâŁ

 it was nice as Isla hadn’t seen it before. We had a lovely snuggly Sunday. ⁣

Isla is so close to her level 6 certificate. She’s been coming on in leaps and bounds over the last few weeks
 her confidence is definitely improving with her @gymfinitykids classes.

Today was awards week for Isla’s class, and I love they they dish out “part way” certificates to those who haven’t quite levelled up yet. Everyone gets a certificate. It’s so lovely.

With my discount code they waive the joining fee, which is £30, so don’t forget to use it when signing up your child to @gymfinitykids

5 Top tips to freshen up an unused fireplace

5 Top tips to freshen up an unused fireplace

Long before central heating came along, we relied on solid fuel fires, usually wood or coal, to heat our homes. Many rooms in the home would have their own fireplace and if you look at the history of Georgian, Victorian or Edwardian properties today, you’ll find many of them still have these original features intact. Of course, when it comes to open fireplaces in the home, their use today is incidental and mainly decorative and, in fact, many old fireplaces serve no purpose at all. VIEW the POST

Best Ways To Add Finishing Touches To Your Living Room

Your home is your sanctuary, the place you can relax and be yourself. It’s also a great place to chat with friends and entertain if you wish. Potentially the two most important rooms in the home are the kitchen and the living room. While the kitchen is said to be the heart of the home, the living room is undoubtedly its soul. You can only truly relax in your living room. So, I have put together some ideas to add finishing touches to your living room.

How to make your living room look amazing

How to make your living room look amazing

If there’s one room in your home that you never seem to be happy with, it’s the living room. While a kitchen revamp can be achieved with a new bread bin and perhaps a matching toaster, and while the hall or spare bedroom can be instantly transformed with a new light fixture and a travel map, the living room tends to pose much more of a design problem.  VIEW the POST

A rug can make all the difference

A rug can make all the difference

It's amazing how much difference a bright, fresh rug can make to a room. We haven't really done much to our living room yet, we have been focussing on other rooms, so when we were offered the chance to review a rug from Land of Rugs, we jumped at the chance. VIEW the POST

5 Tips for creating clean living spaces ready for Spring

I get the itch to redecorate, move the furniture around and de-clutter quite frequently. I would say at least once every few months I will focus on something to make it look “better”. Now we are moving in to Spring, I am getting the urge to create a clean living space. I want something that I can relax in, that isn’t full of toys and dog chews. Something that can be my little space. Maybe something with a little sparkle, like the Pirce Artemide collection from LampCommerce.
