Mini Jen Bag from Mia Tui: Review

**I was sent a Mini Jen bag from Mia Tui in exchange for this review.  As always all opinions are honest and my own** Since I was a little girl I’ve been obsessed with bags.  My husband has joked for years that I have a handbag addiction – yet since having the boy nearly five years ago I’ve barely needed let alone used a handbag. But I have discovered my perfect handbag – the ‘Mini Jen‘ bag from Mia Tui.  I promise I’ll try not to get overexcited and gush but it truly is a lovely bag – read on to find out why…

My weekday mum wardrobe from Simply Be

My Weekly Meal Plan: Week 1 – 4th February 2019

Food, glorious food…. anyone who follows this blog and me knows that I’m a huge foodie and food is life.  I love cooking and that hour a night in the kitchen cooking dinner is a real happy time for me; there is something so therapeutic about creating lovely meals for me and the boys.

A really big tummy like yours, mummy

As a fat chick I knew the day would come when my little dude would say something weight-related to me.  I’ve expected it for a while, and I told myself I’d laugh it off when it happens. And so this week, age four and a half, it happened – we were having a random conversation at home, he was colouring and I was washing up.
