Christmas is fast approaching… but it doesn’t really feel like it.

One humbling aspect of parenting is realising you can learn just as much from your kids as they can learn from you. Whether it’s small reminders or entire life lessons, children really have a way of teaching you important things, and usually at very timely moments in your life.Continue reading “Five things I’m learning from my children”

This is one of the tastiest meals I’ve cooked in a while! I’ve always loved duck, and have been cooking it almost on a weekly basis lately. This particular meal idea is great for date night at home, or when you fancy something a little bit fancier than your usual poultry meal.Continue reading “Dinner idea: Duck with caramelised onion chutney”
I recently asked my friends on Instagram what sort of content would help them when it comes to life at home. The one reply that came back a few times was ‘routines”.Continue reading “Our morning and evening routines explained”
“My son is not yet potty trained.” She said.
“Oh. Okay!” I replied, surprised.
She then sighed and went on a rant about how difficult it is with boys.
“They’re a bit slow compared to girls, when it comes to these things.” She said.

A couple of days ago I made this spaghetti dish, it turned out so delicious I thought I would share the recipe on here! I would normally opt for egg noodles when cooking with bell peppers and spring onion, but I was curious to see how it would taste with spaghetti. And while big fat red Argentinian prawns are the best choice for this particular dish, if you can’t find any, it also works with king prawns.Continue reading “Red Argentinian shrimp with butter and garlic spaghetti | Recipe”
Introducing the Luvme Hair headband wigs – the protective wig that comes with a selection of gorgeous headbands.
I don’t know about you, but my hair is such a major part of my style and beauty regimen. I don’t consider myself ‘ready’ in the morning until I’ve styled my hair.Continue reading “AD | Protective styling with Luvme Hair Headband wigs”
Our children have seen a lot, and chances are, they’ll continue to see a lot as the years go by. They see us in our cringy lovey dovey moments, just like they see us when we’re at each other’s throat. These days, for example, they see an abundance of love, affection and unity, whereas a few months ago they witnessed quite a lot of anger and pain as I struggled with aspects of my mental health.Continue reading “Why I no longer feel bad about my children seeing the less pretty side of marriage”
