    Diet Plan Comparison Review

    Hi everyone! I thought I would do a bit of an update now that it’s been 8 months since I started my weight loss challenge/journey. It’s been up and down, I’m not going to lie and I have learnt an awful lot about myself and about food in general. As most of you who follow my weight loss posts know, I have always struggled with my confidence and about 2 years ago (when Mia was 1) I had a bit of a crisis and was the heaviest I have ever been. I have never dieted before and I absolutely love my food so I knew it was going to be tricky.…

    Encouraging Teethbrushing with the Aquafresh BrushTime App

    Getting children into a good tooth care routine is really important from an early age. Since Mia got her first tooth through and was able to stand on her step at the sink, we have tried to get her into the routine of cleaning her teeth every morning and evening. At first she was really interested in brushing her teeth and we had no issue whatsoever as long as we used fruit flavoured toothpaste! However after a few weeks the novelty wore off and since then it was a bit of a battle at bedtime to get her to do them properly (mornings aren’t an issue?!). We tried taking her…

    Wearable Tech Comparison Review

    Ok, let’s get it out there….I LOVE fitness trackers! I have had a slight obsession with them since I ‘borrowed’ Mario’s Fitbit over 2 years ago and I have been recording my daily movements, sleep and eating habits ever since! Over the last few months I have had the opportunity to work with some great brands to review wearable tech and have been able to test out the Moov Now and the TomTom Spark + Cardio. So here is a quick comparison of the fitness trackers I have really enjoyed using and the reasons why I like them so much!

    My LyliaRose.com Wish List

    Anyone who reads my blog knows that I have reviewed many different products over the last year and that I only write about things I really like but one of my favourites has to be the beautiful scarf I received to review from Lylia Rose! I was asked by the owner of Lylia Rose to create a LyliaRose.com Wish List… In case you don’t know, Lylia Rose is a fab online boutique that sells beautiful women’s accessories; from jewellery to scarfs, purses to home accessories. I absolutely love my scarf (which you can read about here and get a discount!), it goes with everything and I wear it pretty much every single day! I…

    Forza Raspberry K2 Review & Discount Code

    The main focus of my blog at the moment is definitely leaning towards diet and fitness and after reviewing the Forza ‘Shake It Slim’ diet a few months ago, I was really interested when I saw that Forza (an industry leader in weight loss supplements) were looking for bloggers to review their Raspberry K2 tablets! I have researched these tablets before as part of my previous review and I had also seen the negative press that these types of tablets (not Forza’s brand!) have had in the past. Forza Raspberry K2 tablets are a raspberry based supplement that offers support for those wanting to lose weight alongside a balanced diet and…

    Weight Loss Post #10 – Weight Loss Feature

    Hi everyone and welcome to my weight loss post #10! Sorry, I have been AWOL for the past week or so as I managed to catch a horrid virus which absolutely floored me for a good few days! I’m not ill very often so it’s such as massive thing when I am and it’s so tricky when you have a poorly little one too! I managed to get myself and Mia sorted and luckily she is independent enough to be able to play by herself so she was absolutely fine! I’m really frustrated as I have been making amazing progress following my EM Fitness 12 week weight loss plan and…

    Forever Living Skincare Products Review

    I don’t know about you but I love my tried and tested beauty and skin care brands and once I have found one that I really like and works for me, I rarely seek out a replacement. This means I probably use either Simple (pale and sensitive skin!!) or Boots No7 as my Mum and Nan have always used it and they look far younger than they actually are! #goodgenes However, sometimes our skin care routines need a bit of a de-clutter and a shake-up so when a friend of mine approached me to try out some of the products by Forever Living she has recently started selling, I was really interested…

    Weight Loss Post #9 – Weight Loss Feature

    Hi everyone and welcome to my weight loss post #9! So I’m just coming up to the end of week 4 of my EM Fitness 12 Week Weight Loss Plan. I have had a really good week and been keeping up well with my 3 workouts a week and also my 8000 steps a day. Some days I have been getting over 9000 a day so that’s great and something I have struggled with previously! I have found the plan increasingly easier to follow and I no longer have to think too much about my meals or portion sizes, its seemingly becoming habit! The main thing I have begun to…

    TomTom Spark Cardio + Music Review

    Anyone following my reviews at the moment will know that I’m really interested in wearable tech and how they can support a good, healthy lifestyle. I have previously worked with Apple, Moov Now, and Fitbit and today is the turn of the TomTom Spark Cardio + Music and I was so excited to get an email from TomTom to say they would love to work with me!

    Weight Loss Post #8 – Weight Loss Feature

    Hi everyone! Welcome to my Weight Loss Post #8 So a quick update on how I’m getting on following the EM Fitness 12 week weight loss plan that I started just over a week ago now. Well the first day was probably the hardest as expected, I wasn’t in my normal routine, I was eating different foods, different amounts of that food and more often (which seems strange!). By the end of the 1st day I was tired, hungry and feeling like I had started something I wouldn’t actually be able to carry on! Add to that my challenge of 10,000 steps a day and 3-4 workouts a week, I wasn’t feeling very…
