Please don't be offended if I dont share...

On social media we are messaged daily asking us to share our underwear colour or where we keep our handbag for "awareness" and there are endless appeals for missing people, supporting charities and quizzes to complete. I very rarely share things like this and when I do I am very selective and here is why I am so cautious.

Chinese Fakeaway - A Healthy Feast of a Takeaway!

1 comment
We all love Chinese don't we especially at the weekend or with friends. It is one of the main things that can get in our way when we are trying to lose weight though, the love of takeaways and socialising with food versus the wish to lose weight! Last weekend my best friend was coming over for an evening of gossiping, drinks and food so I decided to cook a Chinese so we could save our syns (we all follow Slimming World) for the drinks! It turned out we had far more to drink that the daily syn allowance but it would have been worse with an actual take away! Here I will share what I made and maybe you will enjoy it too.

Neighbours - are yours friends?

Leave a Comment
This is a Sponsored Post (See my disclaimer page for more information)

I have moved house a fair few times over the years due to previously renting and also at university when I moved every year! Sometimes neighbours have become friends and other times I have not even known their names. In my grandparents era everyone knew who lived next door to them I do wonder if this is a sign of the times with so many people leading busy lives and driving so rarely even seeing their neighbours? What are your thoughts?

Thrive Feel Stress Free App for Smartphones - A Review

Leave a Comment
We all experience stress at some point in our lives whether that be a more long term depression or a shorter term problem like worrying about money before pay day. In the long term stress can sometimes need input from a doctor, counsellor, psychiatrist or psychologist however this is not for everyone. There are many apps out there designed for smartphones to help alleviate stress so when I was asked to try out and review the Thrive Feel Stress Free app I was keen to see whether it really does help or if it just preys on vulnerable people.

Bereavement Leave - The reality and how you can help

1 comment
I appreciate this isn't like the subjects I usually post about but it is something I think is an extremely important topic and one that I am sure you as readers will agree is in need of a big overhaul. Both the Labour party and the Conservative party have mentioned statutory bereavement leave in their manifestos but we will see what that entails as time progresses I guess. A campaigner Lucy Herd from Jacks Rainbow came to my attention recently for her continual work on this important issue following the death of her son Jack. For anyone who doesn't know what is and isn't available please do read on.

So read on to see what silly questions I was asked, the answers I gave and maybe find out some random different things about me you may have otherwise never known, or even wanted to know!

Landon Tyler Reed Diffusers - A Review

Leave a Comment
I love candles for how they give your room such a nice aroma but candles can be such a pain can't they, especially with a child like mine who just blows them out whenever he sees them! Not only that but they just aren't practical are they? You have to think of the safety and if you are not staying in a room you shouldn't leave a candle on so then you get no scent! Frustrating I find as air fresheners are just not the same. I love reed diffusers for this very reason, they usually have lovely scents like a candle but smell lovely all the time!

We Are Littles Coffee - A Review (Part 1)

Leave a Comment
I love coffee, especially flavoured coffee, I am not such a big drinker of the plain stuff, its just too dull I much prefer a lively cuppa! There are a fair few flavoured coffees on the market and syrups to add to coffee but not all are low in calories, in fact some of the syrups are scarily sugary! I have been a fan of We Are Littles coffee for a while now so I was so excited to be asked to be a brand ambassador for them. As part of being their ambassador I get to sample their coffees for free - it is a hard life being a blogger I know! I also get a discount code for my followers!

Sock Shop - Heat Holder Socks - A review

Leave a Comment
As it is now the middle of May I appreciate sharing a review for heat holder socks may seem odd but bear with me! I always have cold feet, I never seem to be able to warm up when it comes to my feet so I was excited to try out these heat holder socks (http://www.heatholders.co.uk/). Usually I am a bit frugal and buy supermarket own brand socks and just opt for the thermal or thicker pairs rather than ones like this designed especially for the job! I was however surprised at the difference.

A Coffee Break with Gemma from Life at Floor Level

Leave a Comment

This weeks coffee break chat I have chosen based on mental health as May is Mental Health Awareness Month and there has also been the introduction of Maternal Mental Health awareness week. It is a subject I feel very strongly about and feel more awareness should be raised on both mental health more generally but also on maternal mental health because how can you care for your baby or child if you are not well either mentally or physically. Gemma from Life At Floor Level talks about her experiences and Tokophobia, something you may have not heard of but it is worth reading about.

BookBeat Review

Leave a Comment
Do you enjoy reading but find you rarely are able to make enough time to read and finish a book? I love books and when I do have time I really do enjoy reading but I always seem to have something else to do first and books I start I rarely finish! I do love books though and have read to Ben since he was a little baby and now he reads with me every evening and loves his books too. He falls asleep every evening listening to audio books too. As a family we were excited to be able to try out and review BookBeat and given a year subscription.
