Catch up! | Blog

It feel like so long ago that I actually wrote about me and my life! I have had quite a few reviews and list types posts and it seems like I haven't really shared much of my life with you through out March...I'm not sure why as March has been pretty lovely. So grab a cup of tea (or coffee in my case) and lets catch up!

The biggest bit of news that I have for this month is that our family is going to be growing by one in just 5 days time!!! NO I am not having a baby...well she is a baby as such but she is more fluffy than a conventional new born and not forgetting the facts that she has four legs. We are getting a puppy!!!! Maisie is coming home this Saturday and I am so excited / nervous! I know it is going to be like having a new born again and that it is not going to be easy but I am so excited as pickle loves her and

1. Flowers
Every woman loves flowers..if they say that they don't then they are lying and in my opinion, nothing shows your mum how much you care than surprising her with a beautiful bouquet of flowers. My favourite flowers to send (and receive!) are the ones that you create the from flowers at the florist.

Magically Slimming Beachware to hide your Mum Tum | Simply Be Review

I want to start this post by saying that I do not believe that women need to hide their Mum tums if they are going to the beach. I wish I was confident enough to wear a bikini but at this moment in time the fact is that I am not and I am 100 x more comfortable in something that hides my mummy tummy. So if your looking for a blog post featuring an amazing swimming cossie that makes me feel a million dollars then keep reading....If your looking for a blog post where I shout about how amazing I feel in a bikini and how proud I am of showing off my mum tum then click off now :)
