    Summer Skirts to Brighten up Any Wardrobe

    Like a lot of women, I tend to mostly wear trousers. Of course, I have a few dresses, which I like to wear on a warm day. Plus, if there is a special occasion I will normally choose to wear a dress, but one thing I do not own many of is skirts. For some reason, they kind of went out of fashion for everyday wear, but it appears that skirts are back in fashion . There are more available in the shops than there has been for many years, so if you have not worn a skirt for a while, now could be the time to go shopping. Maxi…

    10 top style tips for Busy Mums

    I have never been that girl that received attention because she was dressed with style or following the latest fashion. I always dressed up to feel comfortable but it comes a time(and age) when you have to change something. Now that my size is still at “plus” I certainly need all the help I can get and I am sure that some of my readers will also appreciate the tips from this Chums infographic. These days is really hard for a woman(or anybody) to know what to wear for the transition into summer. This is why I love autumn so much – a pair of jeans or leggings and a sweater…

    10+ Free Easter Colouring Resources For Kids

    Easter is less than two weeks away and some of the kids are already on spring break.Managing to entertain kids while working from home is such a challenge. This is why I try to find things for my two little girls to do while I work. One is 4 and the other 8 so while one might enjoy reading for the other one it’s simply impossible to do so. They like spending time doing things together and one of their favourite activity is colouring. This is why I put together this set of colouring pages for kids.       FREE EASTER COLOURING PAGES  Activity Village Easter Colouring Pages for…

    6 fantasy modes of transport that we’d all love to experience

    Ever find yourself staring out the train window and daydreaming? Like you’re barely taking anything in the real world in. It captures us all from time to time, and as busy as I’ve been lately, a little reprieve from reality has been pretty welcome. I’m a little jealous of the little ones, whose minds are still open to other ways of getting around. But then I thought, hey – why should they have all the fun?! Imagine if some of the other ways of travelling from movies, books, games and other media were made real. If that sounds outlandish, don’t forget that blimps very nearly took off as a major…

    You can be as happy as you want to be

    There are almost four years since we moved back home and little by little we are making our life here more comfortable. For now some might say that our house its still quite small for our needs but we are quite happy here. Quite a change in my attitude huh? Well, I realised that you can only be as happy as you want you want to be. Of course I still have my down periods, who doesn’t? Being a single married parent can be quite hard as I don’t have that continuous support from my husband. Trying to fit everything in one day – working from home, school runs, cleaning…

    Throw on summer dresses for busy mums

    Lately I’ve got the summer vibe and have been looking into summer dresses. I want some that I can throw on when it’s a hot day as I know I’ll be running around after the children but I still want to look nice and feel a bit feminine. I’m also looking forward to my summer holiday so I’d like a few dresses that I can pack that will work for lots of different occasions. It’s so much easier with a dress as you only have to decide on the one thing to wear and not worry too much about what goes with what. Here are some of the favourite summer…

    #Meatfreemonday: Tasty vegetarian options the whole family will enjoy

    Cooking for a four and seven year old can be demanding, and most of the time one of them will refuse to eat or ask for something different. We’ve recently introduced ‘Meat Free Monday’ into our home and the girls have really taken to it. It’s been a great way of getting them to help choose our meals, teach them about the environment and also the importance of a healthy diet. The official #MeatFreeMonday website is packed full of nutritious recipes, from celebrity chefs to tried and tested family favourites from the McCartney family. One of my favourites has got to be Jamie Oliver’s pumpkin, chickpea and coconut curry. The sweet…
