I wanted to make Stuart something a little different the other day. He loves the Cowboy pie I make (recipe here) so I wanted to alter that a little for him. Well this Cowboy Cheesy Potato Bake was a big hit and I am pretty sure he will be asking for it again. I shared the picture on my Instagram and was asked a few times for the recipe so here it is!

If you love something a bit retro and a bit different in your house then this is most definitely the Get Gingersnap online store is for you! I absolutely love it so I was delighted when I was asked to review some items for them again. I had previously reviewed their Emoji light box so I knew how good quality their products are. Don’t be imagining boring household items in plain colours because you would be so wrong. Think colour, think funky and think retro and you would be in the right area.

For the latest in my coffee break series I am chatting with Nikki from Living with Lennon blog. A blog about the amazing life of a young boy called Lennon and his family. Lennon has continued to change lives even after his death and really was an outstanding boy. There is so much about children with complex disabilities and medical needs that we just don’t realise if we don’t walk in their shoes. Nikki shares their experiences in an honest and really heartfelt way. I hope you will read on and see for yourself how amazing the family is and if there is anything however small you can do to help families like theirs in your day to day life.

There are a few situations that spring to mind in which you might be looking for personalised items in bulk. The first is the obvious business essentials whether that is for your clients or employees or to give out for promotions. The second would be if you were organising a personal function like a big party or wedding and wanted to get a number of items all personalised or branded in the same way. PrintKick sell items suitable for both of these and I have worked with them to share just a few of those items with you.

There are so many simple items that by keeping them in the kitchen (and using them!!) could help you achieve your weight loss goals. Some of these items will help you by swapping them for a less healthy option, others by flavouring your foods. Many are just things which I find a good staple to have in the cupboard ! I use most of these items every week so maybe some will help you too!

When I was given the chance to choose some clothes for Stuart from Jacamo I thought what a fun idea. Jacamo does clothes from size small to 5XL. I knew despite him having gained a little weight lately (like me!) I would find something stylish that he would love. Like anyone who has gained some weight Stuart’s confidence is low. We all know new clothes that fit nicely always helps this.

Have you ever noticed how cheap vinegar is? I have read before how many amazing uses there are for vinegar but can never remember very many so I decided to ask some fellow bloggers for their tips and combine them into a post for you guys. Lets face it we all are likely to have vinegar in the house and most of us like a bargain. If we can find new uses for vinegar that mean saving money elsewhere it has to be a win win doesn’t it.

I have clutter everywhere and I am also a bit of a hoarder so decluttering is something I really need to get on top of. I have been gradually trying to declutter and thought I would share with you some tips I have found helpful. They don’t mean you have to throw away all those sentimental things because you don’t need to. They do however mean you have to think realistically about how much you use things. Be brave and remember if you want to have a clutter free house you have to be ruthless.
