Reasons Why It Should Snow More

Us Brits are some weird creatures. We know how to queue like no other nation, we’re very modest and generally don’t like to brag and of course we don’t speak to strangers on trains or the tube. Unless it snows. I was recently heading to London for work and the much forecast and awaited snow started… Continue reading Reasons Why It Should Snow More


Five of The Best: Little Lifts

It’s January and it’s easy to feel lethargic and just generally a bit grotty, as it is most of the year, but January can be depressing with the cold, dark days and spring still seeming and eternity away. Here’s my top 5 tips to help feel a little more energised. Workout Even if it’s just… Continue reading Five of The Best: Little Lifts


The Changing Bag Abyss

I recently treated myself to a new changing bag. This is my third. First there was the Beau & Elliot one Mr J bought me for Mothers day.

Goals for 2017

Back To Work Wardrobe

With my return to work imminent I am in desperate need of some new work clothes. I’m lucky that I work from home most of the time so that means I can get away with working in jeans but there are days where I need to visit our London office or meet customers and need… Continue reading Back To Work Wardrobe


Five of The Best: Teething Essentials

Thankfully Pops hasn’t suffered too bad yet but these are our must-haves. 1 Dentinox We used this a lot with Oliver and Poppy too likes the taste… Continue reading Five of The Best: Teething Essentials


Fighting The Festive Flab

It’s December and Christmas is upon us. It’s so easy to indulge in a mince pie every time you go into the kitchen and there’s the fridge packed with cheese and the snack cupboard that’s crammed with crisps and nuts. Although I’m a gym lover, I do believe it’s all about balance and enjoying ourselves… Continue reading Fighting The Festive Flab
