It’s that time of year when everyone is deciding their summer holidays. Do we stay in the UK or leave these shores? For the past couple of years we have been holidaying in the UK. We are seasoned UK holiday makers; from Wales to Devon, from Kent up to Inverness; you name it we have experienced it. You can not guarantee the weather but you can be sure of activities to jam pack the week and a lungful of fresh air. With children of various ages to entertain, potential airport chaos and often the dog, it seems easier to just to jump in the car, load up the boot and head for the hills.

We recently read an article in Grazia titled ‘Can we please stop telling women how to give birth’. We were instantly intrigued. It was written by Maria Lally who talks about the why it took so long for The Royal College of Midwives to end its ‘natural Birth’ campaign and how the pressure of having a ‘natural birth’ has effected not only her but so many women in the UK. This article touched a nerve with both of us as our labours were not what is considered ‘natural births’, but what is a natural birth? Continue reading “Hugs before drugs”
If you know me and Charlotte you would know we love McDonalds, Charlotte especially is their number one fan. With growing boys and husbands who all love to eat, between us we could probably start owning shares. Everyone needs a McDonalds in their life, if it’s just to feed the family on a lazy day, devour a Big Mac on a hangover, or like me have a craving for Chicken nuggets when pregnant; it really has something for everyone. So when we were asked if we would like to come along to McDonalds in Reading to hear all about their latest features and changes, how could we refuse? Although would going behind the scenes potentially put us off ever going again?….nah! To also be told we would be able to make our very own Big Mac, well this was life goals ticked off the bucket list.
Hi My name is Kim and I have expensive taste… there I said it! I have always believed that if something costs more, then its better. Then I had kids and my bank balance was no loner the same. These days if I want something and I don’t want to spend the money myself it goes on my Christmas or birthday list (yes I may be 33 but your never too old for a letter to Santa). Anyway without going completely off topic; being someone who loves all things beauty; I have since been introduced to some bargain beauty buys. I with the help of some bargain hunter friends have compiled a list of our top Bargain buys all within easy reach and without breaking the bank balance.
