Glossybox June edition.

Last month I reviewed my first ever Glossybox and I was extremely pleased with the products the products that I received that I decided to order this months too! This months box exceeded my expectations again as I recieved 6 fantastic products instead of the usual 5 which after a stressful month of party planning the extra gifts were a welcome surprise. This box has a kind of summer feel to it which is perfect for the holiday season that is fast approaching.

Friday Food! · Recipes

Friday Food.

Welcome back to another week of Food Friday! This week I am going to be sharing a recipe for Chicken in a creamy mushroom sauce with a twist. You see I tried a recipe I found online, in fact all of the ones online are the same and they all say to use creme fraiche. Now if you have fussy eaters like me then you'll be aware that any food that tastes a little odd will not enter their mouth. Both ryan and I on this occasion thought it tasted a little bizarre too. It was a sort of yoghurt taste on top of chicken which just wasn't for us, so I adapted it and its now a sort of mixture between the old recipe and chicken supreme!

Thursday Throwback

Thursday Throwback no.4.

"We didn't realize we were making memories we just knew we were having fun." - Winnie the pooh. With this years holiday trip to Cornwall fast approaching I thought it was only fitting that this weeks Thursday throwback comes in the shape of our Cornwall trip last year. Every year we take a week long break to Newquay around June time, where Shaniah and I spend our days chilling with Ryan's mum Dawn, brother Luke, his fiancée Kayleigh and their daughter Freya whilst Ryan spends his days fishing with his dad.

Now I am forever trying to encourage my daughter to learn new words, we regularly sit down and I get her to repeat words - good words. The amount of times I have to repeat words like 'butterfly' only to be answered with 'flutterfly' or 'cuddles' when I ask her to say 'puddles' even Peppa Pig hasn't helped me out with that one! However if I am in  a different room and I quietly say a naughty word in she comes running and shouting her new found word, not only has she managed to hear it but it is the most perfectly clear pronunciation ever!

5 thing’s I vowed to never do as a parent.

When I found out I was expecting I was adamant before I even dived into the parenting books that there were certain habits that I wouldn't pick up... nearly 3 years later I think it is safe to say we are actually doing them all! Damn this parenting is harder than books make out! 5.… Continue reading 5 thing’s I vowed to never do as a parent.
