Hello to my lovely readers and my apologies for not writing a post for a bit. Trying to balance working full-time/commuting 2 hours a day/being a mum/doing housework/writing a blog and setting up a business is definitely a challenge and I’m still getting used to using my time effectively. For now though, I am back with a brand new post and it’s all about the perfect service for those last-minute gift givers out there.
A couple of weeks ago it was Bob’s (my husband for those of you just tuning in) birthday and rather than buy him a crappy gift that he wouldn’t really want, I asked him outright for something he had his eye on. Cue a dash to the supermarket and my old friend Amazon, I purchased 2 bottles of whiskey and placed them ready in a gift bag. Makes me sound very thoughtless doesn’t it? but hold your horses! I then decided to get something a bit more personal but with limited time to do it, I knew I needed something with a quick turnaround service.
I am now over 12 months deep into the world of motherhood and long gone are the days of staying up late or going out for drinks with our friends.
Our wild nights now consist of wine/a few drinks and in bed by 10:30! Rock and Roll I know. It’s been hard to give myself time for self-care as I always feel selfish that I’m not spending that time with Bob or Freya and guilty for wanting a bit of me time to relax.
So I thought I would share some of my favourite ideas for the perfect night in that would help soothe the soul.
Since becoming a mum almost 12 months ago (eek, we are 2 days away from my baby being 1), I’ve struggled to come to terms with my new body. Everyone told me it takes time to recover but I always thought that within 6 months I’d be back in my size 8’s and loving life.
I’ve tried lots of different methods of exercise as well as drinking protein shakes and nutritional drinks and this week I’m bringing another review to the blog and that is XLS Nutrition.
