Can we work together?

When I first started blogging 14 years ago it was an outlet for my life with 3 sons, during the years that have passed so much has changed including adding another son and 2 daughters to the mix!

Over the years I have enjoyed blogging about a whole mix of genres including family, lifestyle, beauty, business and most recently my weight loss journey and reviews.  Since February and moving to self hosted my blog seems to have grown exponentially with thousands of new readers and followers via many social media outlets.

During the past six months I have worked with sponsors, freelance writers and companies helping to promote their products and bring attention to their businesses. Check out some of the companies I have worked with so far.  Maybe I could help you too?

I am looking to host guest posts, maybe you have something you would like to write about that I can feature on my blog?

With a huge love of social media and all that it entails I could work with you to help promote your product or business online?  Do you have social media channels set up and someone to post regular content?


There are so many ways we could work together!  Is there something you would like to see featured on my blog or maybe I could write a feature for your own blog?

The Body Shop – Masks.


Being on the review panel for The Body Shop means that I get the chance to try out new products before they are released into the stores.  This time around I was sent two of the Spa of the World Face masks.  Beautiful heavy weight glass jars give these a very luxurious feel and having only used the smallest amount for the trials I can see these lasting a very long time!


First up was the Himalayan Charcoal Purifying Glow Mask, which is a mud textured exfoliating mask to deep clean and detoxify.


This mask is inspired by Ayurvedic traditions, and its tingling mud-texture works to detoxify and unclog skin that needs to release impurities and toxins to help reveal a healthy looking, youthful glow.

  • Instantly after use: the skin is deeply cleansed and detoxified. Pores appear unclogged. Skin looks smooth and glowing.
  • MADE WITHOUT: Parabens, Silicone, Mineral Oils and Paraffins
  • Blended with 100% vegetarian ingredients
  • Facial after facial: skin appears more youthful, healthy and feels rejuvenated. 

Bamboo charcoal is a powerful, detoxifying superfood . It is often found in smoothies and juices as it is known to adsorb accumulated impurities before carrying them out of the body.

Second up is the Chinese Ginseng and Rice Clarifying Polishing Mask,  which is a creamy exfoliating mask to brighten and revitalise skin.

Inspired by Chinese traditions, our creamy exfoliating mask works to brighten, even and revitalise skin that needs an intense treatment to remove dullness and unevenness.

  • Instantly after use: the skin appears brighter and revitalised. Pores appear minimised. Skin is exfoliated and velvety smooth.
  • MADE WITHOUT: Parabens, Silicone, Mineral Oils and Paraffins
  • Blended with 100% vegetarian ingredients
  • Facial after facial: skin imperfections appear reduced, skin appears more even, glowing and feels renewed.

Out of the two my favourite (and possibly all time favourite face mask I have ever tried!) is the Himalayan Charcoal.  Such a cooling and deep cleansing mask that my skin instantly felt brighter and fresher after use.  I love peel off masks so this was a new one for me, leaving it to dry was a whole new experience and it seemed to dry in record time.  My face felt so tight that I couldn’t even move my mouth to talk – I think this was hubbies favourite too for that exact reason!

Overall I will definitely be purchasing these once I run out but having tried them both once and barely touched the surface of each pot I think that might be a while yet!



I was sent these products as part of The Body Shop review panel. Blogging about them is my choice and not part of the requirements.




Kaya Jewellery Giveaway! Ends 15/08/16

Ever since having girls I have loved the idea of having something for the both of us! Something matching without being twee but something we can share.  Both Amelia and Evie love their jewellery and are always pinching mine to see who can pile on the most necklaces and bracelets, parading around like mummy in heeled shoes and pretty rings etc.

Evie has just taken the step to get her ears pierced, her friends all have theirs done and its not something she has really spoke about but we were out one day and she was really excited so we went for it and shes is now the proud owner of 2 teeny little crystal butterflies.  I am so excited to take her shopping for new earrings once the healing process is over!

I came across this gorgeous website that create handmade jewellery for everyone!  I am honored to host a lovely giveaway for you all from the fabulous Kaya Jewellery who, amongst lots of other pieces, make the most stunning pieces for both mother and daughter.  To enter all you need to do is click on the Gleam button below and you could be in the running to win £40 to spend online!

How beautiful is this set and I know for sure they are on our wishlist for joint Christmas pressies for me and the girls! Check out the Kaya Facebook page.

Living Arrows – 30/52!

The Living Arrows project originally took it’s name from a poem by Kahlil Gibran, “You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth”
My photographs this week are chosen purely because they make me smile :)
When I am at the beach everything seems to disappear, worries seem smaller, stresses seem to flow away with each wave.  Amelia seemed to get the same feeling when standing at the waters edge – we couldn’t help but smile when we saw her open her arms to welcome the peace that the sea brings.
For a long time I only had boys so plaits were something I generally did with either my own hair or my god daughters when I got the chance.  Watching Evie practice on her Barbie brought those first few fumbled hairstyles back to me – it takes patience to learn something new and watching Evie made me proud of how she is trying new things.
Linking up as always with What the Redhead Said.
