Looking After Your Own Health As A Busy Parent

We all know just how life can take over when you're a parent and all those little jobs can be forgotten. And most of the time, it's us parent that lose out as we put ourselves last on the agenda. Kids clothing are more important than our own, making sure the kids have all their favourite foods, and forgetting our own things whilst out. 

We should actually be making sure that we're not only looking after our children, but we're taking care of ourselves too. As a parent, you can only do so much and our health is so important. Any and every parent can burn out when they're not focusing on themselves once in a while. Being a parent isn’t always easy. It can feel hard if you're tired, stressed and unhappy.

Nutmeg at Morrisons AW17 and Our Google Hangout Session


I love nothing more than going shopping for groceries and coming home with new clothing for the boys. It's like being able to do all my shopping at once. I can even pop into Morrisons now and pick up uniform for the boys whilst getting their packed lunches.

This week saw me invited to Nutmeg at Morrisons, Google Hangout to listen to their Design Manager, Mel Davies, sharing an exclusive insight into the Nutmeg AW17 kids and women’s collection. Now, if you don't know what Nutmeg is, it's the clothing range that now has a presence in all Morrisons stores - the Nutmeg’s Women’s Collection is now available across 70 Morrisons stores too.

Easy Lunchbox Sandwich Recipes for Kids

When it comes to making packed lunches everyday, it can get a little samey. And as a parent, I realise how boring eating the same thing every day can be and so I try to mix it up a little with the kids. I like to make the packed lunches full of goodness whilst also making it appetising for the boys to want to actually eat. 

Investing in a bread maker was a great idea for us as it meant that we could make our very own breads with different flavours, textures and health benefits and the boys loved that they could make their own and then take it to school with them to eat.

Staying In Shape with MandM Direct


As you all know, I'm loving fitness at the moment. And now my baby-breeding days are over, it's nice to finally think about me for a change and get my body back into shape.

It's actually been quite a breath of fresh air to do too. I always thought that trying to lose weight and get fit, whilst having 3 children in tow, would be very hard work. But it isn't...

Everything You Will Need For Going Back To School

With the new school year just around the corner, everyone seems to be rushing out to find everything their children will need for the new term. And it can be hard - who has the best shoes, what size backpack will your child need, which uniform is the best? 

Well, here is my 2017 list of the back to school items that I've picked out for this year...
