Budgeting for a baby | My top tips

One of the things people automatically worry about when starting a family, is money. It's understandable when you consider that everything in our lives revolves around money, a topic which is constantly in the news, something which can make the difference between living comfortably and finding everyday a struggle. Money is a big reason we put off starting a family for as long as we did, but as lots of family and close friends told us, if you waited until you could 'afford' a family, you'd never actually start a family.

There's a few lipsticks from MAC which have recently become hugely popular and one of those is one of the first nude shades I ever picked up from MAC, as well as my go-to nude for any occasion, any time of year. That lipstick is of course MAC Velvet Teddy

The Sunday Post #43 | Blossoming Gifts

One of my favourite things to do is buy flowers for the house. I love having beautiful bouquets of flowers brightening up our windowsills, whether it be the warmer days of spring and summer or something to add a touch of sunshine in the darker days of autumn and winter. Just looking at flowers makes me smile and if they smell as beautiful as they look, well then we're onto a winner!

Warner Bros. Studio Tour London | Harry Potter

A ticket for the Hogwarts Express at Platform 9 3/4
I was 11 when I was first introduced to Harry Potter. I had just had my 11th birthday and my best friend's mum had bought me two books, Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone and Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, knowing there was nothing that made me more content than burying my head in a book. Little did I know when I began reading Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone that I would become so utterly besotted and obsessed with the world of Harry Potter, a book series which has not only remained one of my favourite book series' of all time, but went on to become one of the biggest book-to-film adaptations ever created.

Kiehl's morning and night

When you have oily skin the last thing you'll think will help is putting on facial oils. I for one was really confused when I was told a facial oil could be just what my skin needed; surely putting an oil on already oily skin will just make your skin worse? I still remember the very first time I used a facial oil and how convinced I was that it would end badly, yet after a few days use I saw such positive changes in the condition of my skin, that since then oils have been a daily must-have in my skincare routine.

The Sunday Post #42 | Summer Dine Leicester Highcross

One of my favourite things to do is go out for meals with friends. I love cooking and have always loved experimenting in the kitchen, but there's something really lovely about finding a great place to eat, settling down with friends and enjoying your evening whilst someone else cooks the scrumptious food for you. A couple of weeks ago I got to enjoy such a perfect night like this, trying out some of the tasty offerings at Leicester Highcross shopping centre with some lovely local blogger ladies.

Everyone wants to know, boy or girl?

When you share the news that you are pregnant, there is one question which passes everyone's lips. It's as if their lives depend on knowing - what are you having, a boy or a girl?
