Back at it

   Oh my life, just where did the weekend go?

I honestly don't know how we all managed to get through the weekend without killing each other. The rain kept us all in doors for the most part of it. There is only so much Peppa Pig you can take over a 3 day weekend!!

So I've been back to cutting again......paper people, I cut paper!
Unfortunately it seems as though work is getting in the way of me paper cutting. But until I win the lottery (and for that to happen I'll have to start buying a ticket) I'll still have to get up in the morning and head out to my day job......poo.

Super Mummy

Ok, so all crafting is on hold for a little while. Little Miss H is a poorly baby. We are currently on standby waiting for Chicken Pox to show up (it's doing the rounds at nursery), she has the sniffles and last night covered me in Vomit (oh joy).



So if anyone is looking for Mrs Flipflop, I'll be locked away in a contaminated house trying to was away eau de vomit.

Crafty lady

I've always been a crafter. It's something purely for me (selfish I know), chills me out after a crappy day in the office and gives me a warm fuzzy feeling knowing I've made something beautiful. 

So here is my newly discovered craft (drum roll please)........

Paper cutting! 

Paper what I here you cry. Well have a look see. Tell me want you think (please be kind I'm still new at this)

Maybelline Forever Strong Forevermore Green

Maybelline Forever Strong Forevermore Green £4.09

With summer fast approaching I decided to go on a hunt for a new nail polish, something to fit my sunny mood.  Enter Maybelline's Forever Strong in Forevermore Green.   I was immediately drawn to to bright colour, not quite pastel the vibrant shade is very fitting for spring/summer.

Not onto the actual polish. Application is a dream, thanks to the tapered angled brush. I'd covered each finger nail with just two strokes, perfect for when your short on time.  The formular is very watery in comparison to other polishes. I had to work quickly just so it wouldn't slide off the brush and onto the table. I could the first coat went on a little streaky, but was spot on after the second.

I'm I love with the polish and can't recommend it enough. My mani is still in tip top condition after three days, doing the usual household chores, but maybe that's because I went a little OTT with the top coat (4 coats to be precise!).

I think the price is outstanding and I'll defenity add to my Forever Strong collection.  Curious to see what other beautiful colours they will release in this collection.  So peeps, what's your thoughts?

Weekend round up

What a lovely fun filled weekend we had. The sun was shining, putting everyone in a happy mood. 

This weekend saw Roo (on loan from the nursery) coming to live with us. Which was perfect timing as we had lots planned. 

Saturday mornings started with H feeding Roo her breakfast;eating very little of it herself in the excitement. 

Daddy, H and Lexie Lou chased bubbles in the garden, giving me five minutes to my self. I even managed to drink a whole cup of warm coffee!!

We spent the rest of Saturday at Hoo Farm.We found it very difficult to drag H away from all the animals. 

Sunday morning consisted of the traditional trip to the dreaded supermarket (my most hated chore). 

A walk around the block with 'baby' and Roo. H became bored with pushing the buggy half way round, guess who ended up taking over that task?!?

A trip to the park in the afternoon. Mummy finishing the day with a much needed G & T!!

Love my family x

I want to hold your hand

Up until a week ago I don't think you really would want to.  
Years or venturing out in the cold without wearing any gloves has seriously damaged my hands, at one point my knuckle were cracked and bleeding. 

Every few weeks I tend to go throughout the same cycle, my hands become super dry (all white and flaky) I rush out and buy a new hand cream, trying it out for a few weeks. The results never until I came across this little beauty!!!

Body Shop Hemp Hand Protector for very dry skin, I have seen this hand cream advertised and I just don't know why I've never given it a go.

The cream is a lovely consitancy, really thick and creamy, it's that thick I honestly didn't think it all of the product would absorb into my hand. However I was proven wrong, there wasn't even a greasy residue I've experience from some hand creams.The smell takes a little getting used to. It has a herb like smell about it, almost like fresh cut grass. Very fresh, but very unusual.

Within minutes of using this hand cream I notice a difference. My hands not only looked in better condition they are so smooth you'd think I've never done a days work in my life!!

Falling in love again

Now I'm back working full time I find it difficult to cook the evening meal, entertain H and try to get it to the table before her bed time. 

I've recently started making things in my slow cooker. Pasta, curries, puddings even bread! Who said slow cookers where just for stews and casseroles?!?

Not only is it healthier; you're not using oil to cook, but it smells wonderful when you walk into the house from a hard day at work and you smell dinner. All you have to do is set the table and kind of cooking!
