Not going to lie, I’ve had a pretty good week. Short of winning the lottery I’m pretty happy. This week I turned 30. Strangely I wasn’t scared/nervous/anxious about turning 30, just excited. Mainly for all the celebrations I’d planned – this birthday is split across three weekends. I am 30 after all. And then something […]

They say you’ve got to experience the bad to appreciate the good and this couldn’t be truer in motherhood. Some days you feel like you’re winning; your Instagram feed is full of a smiling toddler wandering through the park or you’re hosting the most epic messy play session. And then other days it’s all tantrums, refusals […]

Ok so it’s not my actual birthday (that’s in exactly 30 days when I turn 30 -eek!) but it is The Aspiring Yummy Mummy’s. A year ago today I started my blog and over the past year I’ve shared a whole load of stories and adventures from Harley and me. There’s been the wonderful moments; […]

So I’m currently in the throes of major holiday blues. Over the past three months we’ve been lucky enough to go away on three breaks; to Bournemouth with my family, to Devon with the boyfriend’s family and have just returned from two glorious weeks in Spain. This equals a huge crash back to reality. Last […]

Ok, so it’s happened. The moment you know is inevitable but you’re hoping you’re an exception to the rule. I’m talking about the first very public tantrum.   Ours happened the other week, right slap bang in the middle of the walkway between duvets and cards/stationary/generally just writing shiz that’s cute and looks great in an […]

We’re away on our jollies this week, yay. But come home today, boo. Anyway this week’s nap times (now one a day as Harley has decided to drop a nap – parents I need advice on how you can get things done with just one nap time a day, arrrgh) have been mainly sponsored by […]

A treat for mum this time. Baby wipes have destroyed my hands, fact. They’re so dry and icky and I know it’s because of the baby and anti-b wipes. So I’ve been on the hunt the ultimate hand cream, and I think I’ve found it… The L‘Occitane Shea Butter Hand Cream. It’s thick but not […]

It’s hard to believe that your baby becomes a toddler at one. One day they’re your little baby who depends on you for everything and then they start moving, want to feed themselves and basically want to explore everything and everywhere. It’s the most fun having a toddler. They’re like the crazy little drunk person […]

I’ve decided I’m going to start a new feature called my Friday Favourite. I love finding new products that make life 15 times easier and great places to visit so I thought I’d start sharing them. For my first Friday Fave I’m talking food. Much like his mummy, Harley loves food. Especially a proper cooked […]

I’ve always loved a good to-do list. Despite how scary it might look sometimes I get so much satisfaction from ticking off tasks and yes I usually add a task or two I’ve already done. It’s got to be done, it’s both satisfying and motivating so there. Anyway over the past few months I’ve had […]
