Benefits of a Healthy Diet to Boost Health

Eating right is one of the building blocks to a healthier lifestyle and feeling great. As a parent, it’s also essential to keep your energy levels in tiptop condition for running after your little ones all day. While coffee is probably the go-to for most people looking for that pick me up, in fact, making some small changes can have positive effects on your mood, stress levels and body. Keeping active and eating a well-balanced diet is something that we’re bombarded with on a daily basis but for a busy parent, that can be easier said than done. By incorporating some little changes into your diet and making some time to do a little exercise, even if it’s just ten minutes, can help to boost your health in many ways.

Combating My Body Issues With Silk'n Lipo


As someone who works out a lot and tries to eat, mostly, well - it can be disheartening sometimes when there are certain parts of my body that I just cannot seem to lose. No matter how I change up my routines, and push myself at the gym even more, my excess baggage in the tummy area just wont shift. 

It's my 'mummy pouch', the 'mum tum', the bit around my waist that held my boys for so long but now just holds an inner emptiness of self-consciousness. The reason that I dread going swimming, that I'm dreading our holiday, and why I hate looking in the mirror - because no matter what I do, it's always there.

My Pre-Holiday Beauty Essentials


Isn't it weird, that as women, even before we step foot on our holiday, we have to prep. I mean, I'm not usually someone who focuses on their appearance too much - contour and dark eyebrows are lost on me, but before a holiday, I seem to take on this new persona whereby I have to get myself prepped for the trip. 

It's not so much a fad diet, or bikini body, I've learned that having a bikini body just means having a body and wearing a bikini. But just those beauty regimes to give your skin, hair and body a boost. Not only to make you feel better about the skin you're in, but giving your body a good going over can protect your very skin from the sun and the effects. 

So, here are my Pre-Holiday Beauty Essentials that I've been using on the run up to our holiday in a couple of weeks.

5 Tips For A Stress Free Flight With Children


This year, we are looking to start travelling more as a family, trying to venture further afield than the UK to explore the World and our surroundings. To show the children the amazing sights, the beautiful cultures of other countries and give them those experiences to grow up with. 

In a fortnight we start our first step onto this journey with a short haul travelling to Spain so we can gauge how the boys react to flying. C suffers with anxiety so this will be a big moment to see what he'll be like as a flyer.

The Best Investment You Can Make for Your Family

When it comes to being a parent, your priority will always, naturally, be your children. Their happiness, their well-being, their education, and their security. One of the aspects of this is providing them with a stable home, and to do so, you need financial stability. Having a second income can grant you this stability and can give you money every month that you can either use to further your investments, can put into your children’s education fund, retirement, or simply save for a rainy day. One of the best ways you can do this as a parent is to invest in the property market. When you do this, of course, you will need to know all that you can about property insurance for first time landlords. You don’t want to make a mistake that could cost you.

Creating A Rose Gold Master Bedroom


We've slowly been getting round to updating the decor in our house lately. It started last month when I wrote about how we created a silver and grey livingroom, and now we've gone upstairs to the next lot of rooms. 

The master bedroom in our house was in dire need of updating. It has been dark purple since we moved in and it made the room look so dark and dreary. I've always dreamt of having a bedroom that is relaxing but luxurious, and has the design that looks bold but serine at the same time.

VonHaus Single Pine Bed Review


A few days ago I wrote about how we'd been Creating A Boys Bedroom That Will Grow With The Ages and the VonHaus single pine bed was a part of that post. I wanted to write a little more about why I chose this bed as the single one for this bedroom. 

The VonHaus single pine bed comes in white and gives an update to the bedroom so that J can sleep in style in this popular shaker style bed. I adore this style of bed and luckily this one comes in different sizes so that even adults could have this gorgeous bed also.
