Father’s Day Gift Ideas

Father’s Day is almost here so it’s time to start looking at what gifts we can give to all the dad’s in our lives. Personally I really like to give personalised gifts and quite often the most simple gestures can make the best gifts. I know my husband doesn’t expect much, if anything, from our twin girls for Father’s Day, but we like to make the effort and it’s most definitely appreciated. After all, my husband does so much for our girls and I so I think he really deserves to be spoilt. Now, Nigel, that’s my husband by the way,… [Read More]

Celebrate Father’s Day with Hotel Chocolat Plus Competition!

This year Hotel Chocolat is asking ‘what do dads really want for Father’s Day?’ If you ask me, the answer is pretty simple. Like us women, we all love chocolate, but it’s often thought to be a gift that only men buy for women. Let’s change that! Hotel Chocolat have a lovely range of Father’s day gifts and I was lucky enough to be given the opportunity to choose two early Father’s Day gifts from Hotel Chocolat so that I could gift them to my husband. I chose The Father’s Day Sleekster, The Father’s Day H Box and a little… [Read More]

World Poetry Day with Viking

Today is World Poetry Day and I’ve teamed up with Viking to share with you the importance of writing. Viking sent me some arts and crafts products to help inspire me to share the love for literature and artistic writing, but first I wanted to talk to you about why writing is important. We all know that it’s good to get our  creative juices flowing, not only is it good for our brains, it also helps to improve memory and emotional function. I’ve always loved writing. Long before I started using a computer, I would open up a brand new… [Read More]

We Are All Mums – Tommy’s Baby Charity

Mother’s day can be a hard time for many women. For me it’s pretty bitter sweet. My mum passed away when I was 18 years old. She had ovarian cancer and was just 50 years old when she was taken from us too soon. As a mum myself, Mother’s Day is a day that I want to enjoy with my children, but I also want to spend it remembering my own mum. For this reason Mother’s Day can be pretty emotional. It’s also a time when I look back at my own pregnancy with both fondness and gratitude that our… [Read More]

Mum Moments Plus win a box of Hotel Chocolat Chocolates!

Mother's Day Mood Board

Mother’s day is a rather poignant day for me. When I walk around the shops and see shelves full of Mother’s Day cards, aisles full of ‘Best Mum’ teddy bears and beautiful bouquets of flowers, I can’t help but feel a little sad. You see my mum passed away when I was 18 years old. Mum was just 50 years old. She had ovarian cancer. I try not to think of the sad times though which is why when I was asked by Hotel Chocolat if I’d like to write about my favourite ‘Mum Moments’, I thought I’d share some… [Read More]

World Cancer Day

World Cancer Day

Today is World Cancer Day. A day in which we can explore what we can do to reduce the global burden of cancer. My life has been affected by cancer. My sister and I lost our mum at the age of 50 to ovarian cancer. That was in 2005. 12 years ago and I still remember it vividly. It’s something that will never ever go away and it’s also one of my biggest fears. To get cancer and leave behind my children. My sister and I were only 18 when we lost our mum and it’s had such a huge… [Read More]
