Grabbing Some Quality Time With Weekend Box

Lately, it has been difficult to find any time to do anything fun. On top of all our regular work commitments, we have also been running around like crazy trying to sort things for our wedding. To top it all, most of us have also been suffering with the cold/flu. With all this, the blog has suffered a little, but I’ve also not had the chance to spend any quality time with my children. Now that the Easter holidays are upon us (and we are all feeling a bit better), I finally have the chance to concentrate more on the kiddos!

An Evening of Hilarity with Randomise!

Friends are very important to me, but we don’t usually have the time to see each other as much as we’d like. To help keep in touch, I love to organise get-togethers at my house, which often involve a variety of party games and more food than we can ever eat! When I heard the creators of Randomise were looking for bloggers to review their new party game, I saw this as a perfect addition to one of these evenings!

Revamping The Body Shop In Glasgow

Last Saturday, The Body Shop on Sauchiehall Street, Glasgow had a grand re-opening. The store had recently been refurbished and staff were keen to show off their new look to the public. Being a huge fan of their products (especially anything coconut scented) I jumped at the chance to be part of this event. The first 100 customers received a special goodie bag, so I was quick to queue for the store opening at 10am.

Bonus Time with Clinique and Boots

For those of you who missed Clinique’s recent bonus time event with John Lewis, fear not – Boots are now hosting a new bonus time event which runs until the 19th of March (this Saturday)! My lovely future Mother-In-Law treated me while we were out for lunch on Friday, so I just wanted to share a quick post with you guys so you all know about it!

Parenting Stories - A Successful Teen Dad

Last month was the start of my new regular segment - Parenting Stories - where I hope to provide readers with an insight into the lives and struggles of other Mums and Dads. The first post discussed the challenges associated with bringing up a young family after travelling to a new country, and the difficulties associated with such a move.
For the second instalment in this new segment, I asked Thomas McGlone to talk about his experiences of parenting. As someone who was also a teen parent, he has proved that having children young does not necessarily hinder your career progression, but can add to the level of difficulty you may experience...

Thanks to Nikki from 'Young Mum Getting Rid of a Bum' for her help with the picture :)

An Easter Bunny And Some Eggs From Lush

It seems like there is never an end to the new products Lush have hidden away. After bringing home various goodies from both their Valentine’s and Mother’s Day ranges, I couldn’t help but treat myself to some of their Easter range too. With new additions and returning favourites, why not pop along to your local store and pick up a fun alternative to chocolate!

Absent Fathers And The CSA

It’s been a while since I’ve written a personal post – it seems like the past month has consisted of product reviews and other people’s stories… When you’re under a lot of stress, it’s sometimes difficult to put your own thoughts into words - describing how gloriously relaxing your bath is remains an easier option! Last night, the Child Support Agency (CSA) left a message on my phone and today I found out why…
