Hazards Associated With Using E-cigarettes Around Children

The general public is very well informed and knowledgeable regarding the dangers of smoking tobacco around children and babies. However, few parents and adults know if any dangers exist related to smoking e-cigarettes. The relevant question that you need to ask is whether it safe for you to use an e-cigarette around your kids as wells as what they safety aspects are regarding other people using it when your children are around.

Although research on the subject is unconfirmed, some risks have already been associated with secondhand e-cigarette vapor. So before you pull out your e-cigarette, consider the following facts and health hazards that it could have for your children:

Attic Conversion | The Planning Stages

A few month ago I wrote about how we are converting our attic into a master bedroom and since then a lot has happened to help us on our way. We've had plans drawn up and sent off and I've also had the most important job of scouring Pinterest for the most amazing designs that we probably can never afford, to  make the space into our very own bedroom. 

Now these planning stages aren't just about sending off the drawing to planning, but also about trying to work out how we can successfully convert the attic, making the most of all the available space whilst making sure it does end up looking like a bedroom once finished and not just a dark and dingy attic.

Jamie's Italian Super Lunch Menu Review

I love eating out and try to do it as much as possible. It would usually consist of finding somewhere that serves reasonable food in a speedy time so that the kids didn't get bored and kick off. Now they're all in school and pre-school though, it gives the husband and I a bit more time to enjoy meals out together. 

A couple of weeks ago we were invited to Jamie's Italian Leeds Restaurant to give their food the once over. It's somewhere we've always said we'd try but that we'd never got chance to in the past so we really couldn't wait to get there.

Blogging Isn't As Easy As It Might Look

As a person who has been blogging for over 5 years now, I have had my share of people who just don't get it at all, and even my explanations does nothing for them. I usually get the 'oh, so you get free stuff then. I should start a blog' and wonder how cheeky people can be. You wouldn't say that to any other profession, so why mine?

I can tell you something right now, blogging isn't easy!

Gifts For Father's Day 2017


I got a press release the other day and it mentioned that Father's Day isn't as important as Mother's Day because it's Googled less, and it got me thinking, are we in an age whereby, if Google says something, we believe it?

For me, Father's Day is just as important, if not more so, than Mother's Day. And I'd much rather my sons pick out something for my husband on Father's Day, than for me on Mother's Day. Anyway, I totally went off piste here but just wanted to point that out. So, let's get on with the show now shall we. 

I'm sure you've come to recognise that each year I put out a Father's Day gift guide. Showing off all of those gifts that are currently on the market which I think would be ideal gifts for the men in my life, and hopefully yours too. 

So, without further ado, here is my Father's Day gift guide for 2017...
