Easter Recipe | Lemon Blondies


Nothing says Easter to me more than Lemon flavours in cooking.

The shops are filled with limited edition lemon flavour cakes from French Fancies to Viennese whirls all filled with Lemony goodness.

I love citrus flavours so this is my favourite time of year.

So of course I had to get baking my own Lemony treats!

Mental Health & Wellbeing | 10 achievable steps to a healthier mind

I've been fairly open and honest on here about my struggle with anxiety. 

I think it is important to be open about these things, and not just to shut it away from the outside world like a dirty secret.

It isn't and never will be.

Anxiety and depression and real. They are normal and people in all walks of life suffer with them daily.

Easter Gift Guide


The joy of Spring is in the air, the fields are full of baby lambs and the birds are chirping in the trees.

It can only mean one thing....

Easter is nearly upon us!

Which can kinda be stressful, especially when you have 3 of your own children to play Easter Bunny to, 10 nieces and nephews to buy for and a family gathering to participate in.

It also means my children can get inundated with chocolate so not only do I have a range of delicious sweet treats to show you here, there are also some great non-chocolate alternatives as well as gifts suitable for the grown ups in your life.

So sit back and let me take the stress out of Easter gift hunting and check out my recommendations below.

The Falconer's Quest | The UK's largest bird of prey display at Warwick Castle


Last Saturday I was lucky enough to be invited to the preview of Warwick Castle's brand spanking new bird display, The Falconer's Quest.

We were so excited! We only live an hour away from Warwick castle but despite the older two having visited a few times with school and grandparents, I had never been and we had never been as a family before.

So even if the display was rubbish, we were gonna have an awesome day discovering the castle together, right?

Review | Lenovo Smart Display



You may have seen me briefly mention the Lenovo Smart Display in my Mother's Day gift guide recently?

"The Lenovo Smart Display offers innovation to enable everyday greatness"

"The Lenovo Smart Display brings you the best of the Google Assistant with an enhanced visual experience. You can do more, like tackle a new recipe, watch YouTube videos, check the weather, or view your schedule. Just say “Hey Google” and you’ll see." www.lenovo.com

I'm going to be honest, I was dubious about trying the Smart Display out. 

Recipe | Rainbow unicorn fudge



My daughter is slightly obsessed with Unicorns at the moment - I mean, who isn't?

And we all know that I'm a sucker for anything rainbow, so I was made up to find this super easy Rainbow unicorn fudge for us both to make together.

There's minimal ingredients and it can be ready to eat within a couple of hours.

Competition | #MakeMumACelebritea with PG Tips this Mother's Day


It's that time of year where we all reflect on just how wonderful our Mum's are.

[They should be getting credit all year around, but extra praise is due on Sunday!]

What's on my bookshelf?


OK, so the title is a little misleading as I don't really have a book shelf as such.

My books are actually split over two spaces - a little selection tucked away in the corner of my lounge and a few, more recently read in the bedroom (because that is where I generally do all of my reading!)
