I thought I’d take time to reflect on my life lately and how much it’s changed in the last 6 months.
I had a baby
The obvious one! In September I had my first baby; a daughter called Freya and I absolutely love being a Mum. I didn’t really see myself as the maternal type and everyone at work joked that I had no sympathy bones but I think I’ve changed a lot whilst still retaining my character.
I became an Ambassador for Origins
This was super exciting as it started happening before I had Freya and by the time she arrived, I was arranging my first training sessions. Skincare has always been my first love when it comes to my blogging and when this opportunity came along, I was up for the task.
I planned my first event
As part of my role as an ambassador, I will be running 4 events during the year. So far I’ve successfully planned and ran one before Christmas, and now I’m in the midst of putting my guest list together for the next one in February.
I made mum friends
This might sound like something small, but its one that I’m incredibly proud of. I was really worried about making friends but I have found a wonderful bunch of ladies that I know I can talk to about all my mum worries.
This is one my husband would laugh at as I never understood it before. Now that I have some spare time when Freya is napping during the day, I find myself coming across things like wholesale T-shirt printing. It’s amazing what you can learn about when browsing the web but it’s far better than googling baby stuff which can sometimes lead you down a black hole.

Several years ago I made the decision to switch to an electric toothbrush and I have never looked back. Nowadays all the adverts tell you about brushing your teeth and the benefits of electric toothbrushes and honestly I am so glad I made the switch when I did. Since then my teeth have never been better and my dentist is always happy with how both my teeth and gums look.
Shortly before Christmas I was contacted by the fabulous folks that are Uber Sonic to review one of their electric toothbrushes. Being a toothbrush convert anyway, I happily said yes to the opportunity. When it arrived my husband had just had to get rid of his toothbrush so being the kind wife that I am, I offered him the chance to be guinea pig and try it out for me.
As a bit of context:
Uber Sonic is the world’s first anodised aluminium toothbrush, created with the aim of becoming an accessory to your daily hygiene routine. It has been stylishly designed with a sleek streamlined handle in Silver.
My husband loves it!
When it comes to battery life, he said it has a long battery and he rarely had to charge it up, which I can vouch for as I rarely see it on charge in the house. The design is fantastic and really does feel like holding the iPhone in your hands.
The best bit about the toothbrush is the subscription service that they provide. The starter kit is a mere £19 and includes the toothbrush, your first refill pack and a free gel teeth whitening pack. After this you pay £9 per package of 2 refill brush heads delivered 6 times a year, with free postage. Sounds good right? and on top of this, there is no lock in period meaning you can cancel at any time without any fees. Winning!
My husband is still using the brush and is yet to use any of his refills yet but we are definitely converted and in love with this stylish toothbrush.
*This toothbrush was sent to me in exchange for an open and honest review. No payment has been received for the post and all content is my own as usual*
I’ve been wanting to write this post ever since the turn of the new year but frankly, getting motivated to do so was difficult. It’s not that I didn’t want to blog, it’s more I struggled with my goals for the year and what I wanted to happen.
It took me a few days to come up with some core goals that were realistic and not way above achievable, but were also not completely time-consuming now that my priority is my child. No longer can I be selfish, I have to put my beautiful little girl first and my goals come second especially when it comes to blogging which is a hobby.
