The key to a happy relationship


Getting into a relationship is easy, maintaining a happy and healthy one is the trickier part. I have come across many people who are in so called relationships but are ridiculously miserable. So what's the point? It starts out beautiful (as most relationships do), but then somewhere down the line, something changes. One of you no longer does the things you used to do to make the other happy, one of you stops giving the other time or attention and before you know it, you're on a fast train to a break up.

Becoming a parent is one of the most incredible things you can choose to do, but it's not without its challenges. From a serious lack of sleep, to kissing goodbye to those much loved lay ins (oh how I miss them), to learning to love ur post pregnancy body- there are a number of big adjustments to be made when you become a new mum.

Dessert Springs Golf Resort Almeria- First family holiday

desert_springs_resort_spain, Almeria

Hey guys, So recently, my lovely little family and I took a week long vacation to Almeria in South East Spain. It was just what we needed, a peaceful break away from the hustle and bustle, the drama, the grey skies and the general monotony we all too often find ourselves trapped in. We stayed at Desert Springs Resort and had our own villa with private pool and rooftop.

Stylish swimwear 2015

As always when it comes to this time of year, my obsession with sexy and stylish swimwear has become REAL. This summer, the high streets are filled with some gorgeous swimsuits and bikinis.  Ladies, we have absolutely no excuse not to look and feel amazing on the beach with all of these designs. From high waisted bottoms, to cut out and laser designs, I just can't get enough. 

I have taken away the hard work for you by selecting some of the best buys from the high street selections of swimwear for 2015

My Top Baby Products 2015

Babies are not cheap! And that's a fact. Because, while they only live on milk for the first few months of their little lives, the list of stuff you need to buy in preparation for their arrival can be pretty extensive. First there's the basic stuff such as nappies, wipes (you will go through a shed load of these), the moses basket/ cot, baby bath, steriliser, bottles, baby changing bag, clothes, car seat, pushchair, etc. Then there is the non-essential stuff such as the bouncer/ the swing, the mobile, the monitor etc. if you are lucky enough, you will get some of these as gifts at your baby shower- if you have one. After a short time, you will quickly see which baby products are the most useful and which ones are a waste of time and money

Here are some of my top baby products for 2015 that I simply could not live without.

Last year, we celebrated my sister's 30th birthday in true style! To the envy of all my friends and colleagues, we decided to escape to the gorgeous Thailand for 2 weeks. Staying on the wonderful island of Phuket (Thailand's biggest island), this trip to Phuket earned itself a place on my 'epic moments in my life thus far' list. There is so much to do and so many gems that you really shouldn't miss out on. Here is a list of the top 5 things to do in Thailand.

The 5 best things about being pregnant

best-things-about-being-pregnant, pregnancy-glow, unborn-baby-movements

Pregnancy, for some women is not a fun ride at all. Lets face it, it can be a tough old time. Dealing with a gigantic belly, stretch marks over your previously flawless skin, swollen ankles/ feet/ face/ facial features/ everything, general weight gain, morning sickness, a lack of sleep, extreme fatigue because of this lack of sleep, tender boobies, countless trips to the loo... need I go on? But, in spite of all of this, being pregnant is one of the most beautiful, surreal and inexplicable experiences a woman will ever have.

My pregnancy was incredible, albeit challenging at times. But to be totally honest, I was fortunate enough not to suffer from any swelling or extreme weight gain. My issue was more to do with with nausea and vomiting, but even with the nausea, I enjoyed every second of being pregnant- well almost every second. 

Here are the 5 best things about being pregnant:

Baby Bump Photoshoot

After what will soon be a one year hiatus, I am returning to my blog with a huge change in my life. I have become a mummy to a beautifully perfect little boy. I spent the best part of 2014 sporting a lovely baby bump, coping with morning sickness, planning and preparing for the new arrival, holidaying in Thailand and generally enjoying the last few months I would have to myself.

I always promised myself I would do a baby bump photoshoot when I got pregnant, so as soon as I had a good sized bump, I did just that. Hiring 3 hours of studio space from Idezign studios in North London, I managed to get some pretty cool shots that I was really pleased with.
