A Day In My Life With iCandy

The lovely people at iCandy kindly sent me one of their new Raspberry Urban Strollers with the instructions to show you a day in my life with my puschair in toe.

Now I do an awful lot of walking so this was a great task for me to partake in. I will apologise in advance and say that my life may not be the most interesting but do keep reading if only for the pushchair wonders you are about to witness….

6 Months of Healthier Living

I can't believe we are half way through the year??!! 6 months that I've been trying to stick to healthier living and believe me that's the longest I've ever stuck to any sort of diet.

The thing is I know I was never over weight and not even fat really but as I've talked about so often, I'm just not comfortable in my own skin. Like anyone else, I've been on my own personal journey both with my weight and my attitude to my body and the food I consume.

So I think in my most recent update I was talking about maintaining my weight rather than trying to lose anymore. Well this is where I am seriously struggling.

The scales aren't my main port of call anymore but I do step on them every couple of weeks and they seem to fluctuate quite a lot rather than staying steady. I mentioned in a post about holiday indulgence but I think because of my slip up in the half term old eating habits are trying to creep in.

Read With Me #26

Hey there lovely people, welcome to this weeks Read With Me. How are you all, managing to get some reading time in?

read with me
So how many of you went ahead and bought Grey by E L James a couple of weeks ago??

I haven't yet, going by reviews I'm not sure it would be worth my money.

One of the books that I really enjoyed is one that I have review to write for and that is A Dark Dark Wood by debut author Ruth Ware.

This a psycological thriller which is superbly written, you can read my full review next week but I just wanted to share my recommendation with you all now.

I have another library haul video to share with you all if you'd like to take a look too.

Project 365 2015 Week 26

Who else thinks the weather has been rather rubbish considering it is meant to be Summer time?? This week I got a new pushchair in the house much to the husbands horror, however I did sell my other buggies so I am down to one pushchair which hasn't been the case since I had Layla!!

This week also saw the hubby starting on a different shift at work, better hours as it means he gets every weekend with us for a little while but it is a drop in wages as the job is nearing an end so time to tighten the purse strings.

Last week my older brother and his wife had their second child so we are off to see them this morning, got to love baby cuddles but for now check out this weeks project 365 round up...

Day 172

Father's day and daddy did what he does best and treated the girls instead of himself. New swingball set up in the garden.

Cinema, Dinner Dates and Falling To My Death

Cinema, dinner dates and falling to my death, sounds like a typical weekend doesn't it?? Well last weekend I actually got some much needed alone time with my husband. It had been planned for a while but as we all know, plans change. We were due to go and watch Foo Fighters in concert on the Saturday however as I'm sure you're aware, the gig unfortunately got cancelled, much to my disappointment. Infact I have to admit I was more than annoyed because I'd missed out on a blogging conference, Britmums because I had really wanted to see Foo Fighters instead.

But as they say, the show must go on and after a re jig of babysitters, we were off on our travels, which of course means a car journey selfie (you'll notice a running theme in this post).

Oreo Cookie Surprise Cupcakes

One thing I really love doing with my girls is baking and even better when we can find new recipes to experiment with. The recipe I'm about to share with you comes from the official Jacqueline Wilson magazine. Now they actually named them coffee & cookies cupcakes but I prefer the name oreo cookie surprise cupcakes.

These cakes are a delight to the tastebuds. With the mix of soft, moist sponge and crumbly, sweet cookie, the textures were made to go together.
