Gotrovo Mealtime Treasure Hunt

If you are a parent you probably know too well the battles that can ensue at mealtimes as you try to get your little darlings to eat something other than their favourite foods, and if you are anything like me you’ve probably tried all the tricks – hiding vegetables in sauces, convincing them that that their favourite cartoon character loves broccoli – to no avail!

Luckily Gotrovo have developed a lovely dinner set that is both functional and fun, doubling up as a game that helps make mealtimes interesting and rewarding.

My Week – Autumn’s in The Air

Hello Beauties and welcome to my weekly run-down. I’m happy to report my Mojo has been found and I’ve been in a much more upbeat mood, despite Hurricane Gonzalo beating a path to our door at the start of the week! So what’s been happening in my blogosphere?

My Week – Feeling Lucky

Hello beauties and welcome once again to my weekly slot. I cannot believe we are two days away from October; mixed emotions for me as it definitely means Summer has left the building but I’m also happy because I’ve noticed lots of exciting Christmas beauty launches are making their way onto our shelves. My Wish-List is getting longer, as I’m sure a lot of other Blogger’s lists are!

My Week – Plodding Towards The New Term

Summer has still not returned to Lancashire this week, but at least we had some sunshine and a few dry days this week. My washing machine was in overdrive as I took advantage of the weather and did as much washing as possible! I cannot believe we’re already at the end of August and it won’t be too long before the little one starts nursery. Despite having enjoyed the holidays with her i’m looking forward to having a bit more of a routine and also a few hours to myself to get some jobs done around the house. But the new term isn’t for a couple of weeks so in the meantime we’re plodding on, finding ways to fill our days.

Sunday Summary

This week has been very tiring and I really struggled to get going.  The weather took a turn for the worst and I don’t think that helped but also C seems to be going through a phase where she’s both stubborn and ignores me, yet is very demanding my attention! If I hear the words “I want” again I think I’ll scream. But enough of the joys of bringing up a three year old and on to what I’ve been doing this week…

My Week – Here Comes The Sun!

As it seems to have become a regular feature my post today is a little sneak peek at what I’ve been up to with my family this week, as well a summary of the week’s posts.

Monday was a busy day with a meeting in the morning, followed by Playgroup in the afternoon. We barely had time to cram down some cheese on toast for lunch in between. I managed to sit down that evening with a glass of coconut water and finally finish writing about the art project I’d participated in and which had ended last week.

Mio Skincare and My Aim For a Fitter, Healthier Year

The makers of Mama Mio, a range of skin- and bodycare for mum and baby, recently launched a “High intensity” bodycare range targeting problem areas and working alongside a healthy lifestyle to really bring results.  With fresh zingy scents the intention is to kickstart your day and motivate you, whilst moisturising and caring for your skin, and finally helping you to unwind after a long day. Invigorating shower gels, firming creams, muscle-soothing balms; all complement one another with one goal of giving you “skin fit for life”.
