A Coffee Break With... Emma Reed - Author and blogger

Leave a Comment
This week I chatted to Emma who writes a popular blog called www.emmareed.net. Emma is also an author of a book about teething babies. I was interested in chatting to Emma because I have always wanted to write a book but I am not sure I would ever be able to actually go from an idea through to publishing it. It also fascinates me that someone could be a mum, a blogger and an author, I am sure there aren't that many hours in a day!

DermaSalve - A Review

Leave a Comment
I have had dry hands for a long time and my son Ben has eczema and very sensitive skin. Like many women I often have dry heels and want to moisturise them and have lovely soft heels like all the shoe adverts! Recently SkinSalve asked me to review some of their DermaSalve products and sent me some hand cream and some foot and heel cream to try out. As always I never guarantee a company a good review but I always promise I will be honest and open in my experiences of a product.

Mrs Gleam Kitchen Cleaner and Degreaser - A review

Leave a Comment
If you read my blog you will know I love to cook and I am often cooking a few different meals a day. I am not a huge fan of cleaning though, but is anyone? It can be such a boring task I find, especially when it feels like you take forever cleaning just one thing, or always feel like you are cleaning the same things. When Mrs Gleam asked me to review their Kitchen Cleaner and Degreaser, suggesting it might make cleaning the kitchen easier, of course I jumped at the chance, who wouldn't want to make cleaning easier!

Nutalicious Review

Leave a Comment
When I first came across this company I wasn't sure as I love some nuts and am not so keen on others but as my boyfriend Stuart loves most nuts as does my son Ben I jumped at the chance to review them. The main thing I am not so keen on about nuts is overly salty ones as I really do dislike salt on or in anything. I am more of a sweet than a savoury kind of girl.

I have been wanting a spiralizer ever since I first saw them available and people on social media posting their pictures of cute curly carrots etc. Can you imagine my excitement when Savisto asked me to review a spiralizer for them? Savisto sent this product to me for a review and to keep afterwards however the review words and views are my own.

A Coffee Break with.... Kayley from Friendly First Foods

Leave a Comment
This week I chatted to Kayley who writes a popular blog called Friendly First Foods. This is a blog about weaning babies and making easy family friendly foods for them to grow and develop. I like this blog because it is all about feeding youngsters a varied diet as soon as you start weaning. Giving babies a healthy start is so important and Kayley has done so well at sharing her experiences with her son so that other parents and carers have ideas to help the next generation.

10 Characters You Find At Slimming World Groups

1 comment
As you know I have attended Slimming World group for the last almost 3 years. I have been to a number of groups and met lots of people during the course of these three years and found that all groups seem to have a similar group of people which I thought I would share to give you all a giggle and see if you can spot yourself and your friends. These may also apply to other weight loss groups but it is some time since I have had any experience of these so I am not sure!

Be a friend but do it right!

1 comment
Recently I have had a few messages from people who have seen my transformation photos, my YouTube video or heard about me on social media asking for advice in how they can help their friend or family member. With so many adults now overweight or obese it is inevitable that we all know someone who we think could do with losing some weight. I spent so many years as not just obese but for a long time morbidly obese and as a result there were no doubt many people in my family or friendship circle who thought I should lose some weight. There is no doubt that I needed to lose weight for myself, my son and for my health but even when people brought this subject up with me it rarely worked and encouraged me.

Real Good Tomato Ketchup - A Review

Leave a Comment
We all love a good squirt of tomato ketchup don't we but it is scary how much sugar some brands contain so I was excited to try out the Real Good Tomato Ketchup when they offered to send me a bottle to review. Ben loves his ketchup, as most 11 year olds do, so he was delighted especially that the people at Real Good had read that he was eating healthily and mentioned him saying they hoped he would like it!

A New Chapter - Rediscovering Myself

1 comment
It is the start of 2017 and we all have resolutions and plans for the year ahead. Some people aim high with a plan that will change their life permanently, others aim for a month of no alcohol for example. I have had various resolutions in the past, most have been given up by the middle of January! This year I am sharing with you my aims and hopes for the year ahead and ultimately for the longer term too. I am doing this partly because by writing it down and sharing it I will be more committed but also because I feel that my readers who have followed my weight loss and read about me will understand and maybe relate to what I am saying.
