Doing Bedtime right with Usborne Books

Since Freya was a little dot, we’ve always tried to have a bedtime routine that consists of bath, bottle and book and then bed (hopefully). Obviously this hasn’t always gone to plan and sometimes she’s decided she’d rather sing songs or play instead of sleep. Now she’s 6.5 months old, she understands when we say bath time to her and gets excited as she loves the bath and knows what’s coming afterwards.

Getting my Caffeine and Protein fix

We all know I’m still holding on to some post baby chub that just won’t shift its way off my hips. I’ve been trying to do exercise but lately I feel as though I’ve lost some motivation when it comes to daily cardio workouts. My aim every day has been to walk somewhere between 12k-15k steps and do organic exercise like housework etc to lose the remaining hip chub without exacerbating myself.

As a lover of caffeine, I was over the moon to receive a box of Get Nourished iced coffee drinks to try out.

Get Nourished contains 25g of protein per bottle and comes in 3 delicious coffee flavours. It’s high amount of protein means it has one of the highest levels of protein in the UK protein drink market. The coffee has been carefully blended to serve a strong coffee with a subtle flavour in Coconut, Vanilla or Hazelnut.

The drink is made using a high quality lactose-free milk protein and on top of that the product is also gluten-free. The drink is the perfect breakfast wake up or could be used as a mid-morning or mid-afternoon pick me up which is how I’ve been using it in my day-to-day routine.

These iced coffee drinks have been the perfect addition to my routine especially when we go out for walks round the village as these tend to be long to keep Freya asleep or to get her to doze off in the first place. Out of the three flavours I tried, the hazelnut one was my absolute favourite.

Overall I really liked these drinks and unlike other protein drinks, they didn’t leave a horrible aftertaste which is a big plus as I love iced coffee in general but was worried about the high level of protein and how that might affect the taste.

If you fancy trying out the coffee’s for yourself then head to either Holland & Barrett, Musclefood.com or Getnourished.co.uk.

A London family bucket list

Earlier this year we booked our first family holiday as a 3 and it’s now given me the itch to book another family break. I’ve been looking at places to visit and would absolutely love to go back to London now we are 3 and take Freya to some of the sites. (Yes I’m aware she won’t remember much at this age but that’s not the point). So it got me thinking and I wanted to put together a little bucket list of top attractions to visit in London that are perfect for the family.
