Baked Onion and Courgette Frittata Recipe

Eggs are one of the most versatile ingredients and can be used to create many meals for breakfast, lunch or dinner.

I've tried frying them, scrambling them, boiling them and poaching them but I hadn't attempted to bake them until now…..

Read my latest recipe to see how I created my baked onion and courgette frittata.

Keeping Active With The LeapBand

You may remember a couple of months back that I wrote a post introducing one of the latest products from LeapFrog, the LeapBand and I promised you guys a review

Well I'm happy to tell you that we have been putting the LeapBand through it's paces and I'm finally ready to share with you all what the girls and I made of it.

For those of you that haven't heard of the LeapBand yet, let me give you a little more info :

It is the first wearable activity tracker for children, designed to not only get them learning but to keep them active whilst having fun too. It combines virtual pet play with physical activities and even doubles up as a watch!!

We received the LeapBand in pink but it is also available in green, blue and orange as well, making it suitable for boys and girls.

July's Degustabox, What's Inside???

It is that time of the month when I tell you exactly what I received in my monthly Degustabox.

I do love a good surprise and I have to say I think this may have been the best box to date.

So what was inside??

zeo drinks

Zeo Drink £1.29 each or £4.29 for four : Avaialable in three flavours : Peach and Grapefruit Burst, Citrus Crush and Lime Zest. These carbonated drinks are not only tasty but refreshing too. They leave this strange yet welcoming tingling sensation in your mouth after drinking. A perfect choice for those hot Summer days.

N is for ….. Nails

The past couple of weeks of the Summer holidays have been a bit rubbish if I'm honest, I've spent a lot of time packing up our house ready to move and I feel like I've neglected the girls somewhat.

So last week I stepped away from the boxes and decided we were going to have a girly day.

We had fun with arts and crafts, making dresses, bags etc.

Baking was done, lots of yummy cakes to eat.

And of course no girly day is complete until a bit of pampering has occurred.

This meant that N stood for nails.

Read With Me #33

We're nearing the end of August, Summer holidays almost over and I can't believe I only just found out about the Mythical Maze Summer reading challenge. Good job we decided to visit the library last week!!

read with me

Is this something your children have been joining in with??

Talking of challenges I'm only 18 books away from completing my Goodreads 2014 reading challenge.

I've read 132 books so far this year.

My favourite book from last week had to be Ugly Love from Colleen Hoover, I don't think this woman can write a bad book!!

Some brilliant posts linked up last week, a big thank you to everyone who took the time to link up and comment.

The One Plus One by JoJo Moyes Review

For those of you that read my blog, you will know I'm a real book worm. I am always on the look out for different books to read, even better if they are by authors that I have yet to try.

I was recently selected by Mumsnet as one of ten bloggers to review The One Plus One by JoJo Moyes.

I've heard of JoJoMoyes before but I hadn't picked up one of her books before.

The blurb :

Jess Thomas, with two jobs and two kids and neber enough money, wears flip flops in the hope of Spring. And whenlife knocks her down she does her best to bounce right back. But there are some challenges even she can't meet on her own.

Ed Nicholls is the good guy gone bad. He had it all, then one stupid mistake cost him everything. Now he'll do anything to make it right.

Ed doesn't want to save anyone and Jess doesn't want saving but could Jess and Ed add up to something better together?

The One Plus One tells the story of Jess and her quirky family.
