March is Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month

Ovarian cancer is one of the most common types of cancer in women. It mainly affects women who have been through the menopause, but it can sometimes affect younger women. The symptoms of ovarian cancer aren’t always easy to recognise. Symptoms include: feeling constantly bloated a swollen tummy discomfort in your tummy or pelvic area feeling full quickly when eating needing to pee more often than normal Sadly, my mum died of ovarian cancer when she was just 50 years old.

Making Fruity Milkshake Lollies with Shaken Udder Milkshakes

I love a good milkshake, so when I was sent some delicious milkshakes from Shaken Udder, I couldn’t wait to get tucked in and try them out! If you’ve not heard of Shaken Udder before, then let me tell you a bit more about them.

I’m Part of Team Brecon Carreg #TeamBreconCarreg

When I started running, I had no idea how much of a positive effect it would have on my life. Not only have I lost weight, I’ve also had a complete lifestyle change. I eat better. I feel more energised, motivated and most importantly of all, I feel happier. Little did I know when I started running in March last year, that I would end up completing my first half marathon! Who knows. Maybe one day, I’ll pluck up the courage to run a full marathon! Until then, however, I’m happy running around my neighbourhood, plotting new routes and entering… [Read More]

Glimmies Aquaria Review

When it comes to toys, our girls have quite a few! This means it takes something pretty magical to impress them. So when we were sent a Glimmies Aquaria set to review along with two additional figures, I think it’s fair to say that the girls were pretty impressed! Glimmies are super cute magical creatures that live in Aquaria, an underwater village in Glimmies world! These little marine fairies each have their own unique names. We received Glimsplash, Medusilla and Mareen. Each fairy is super cute to look at. As you can see Glimsplash is pink, Medusilla is green, and… [Read More]

Why I keep a food diary and weigh myself every day

Feeling comfortable in my own skin has always been something of a mission of mine. Last year I managed to lose two stone, and I started running. I even completed my first half marathon and am signed up to do it all again this year. Like many other men and women who have tried to lose weight, I’ve had some pretty unsuccessful experiences. Take 2016 for example. I started the year at a weight I was happy with, but the end of 2016, I’d put all that weight back on again. It’s something of a viscous cycle that felt like… [Read More]

Review: Bargain Toys from PoundToy

Buying gifts for children can be expensive. If your child’s social life is anything like the social life of our six year old twins, then you’ll know exactly what I mean. Not a week goes by where they don’t come out of school with another birthday invitation. Of course, they absolutely love getting dressed up and going to all these wonderful parties, but for mum and dad, it can add up pretty quickly. Some parents I know will buy toys throughout the year in sales and clearances, then stash them all away so that when another party invite arrives, they’re… [Read More]
