My Favourite Skincare Products - 2020


Hi all!

So, it’s been a while since I’ve done a beauty-type post.
During lockdown, I really thought about ways that I could include a skincare routine. I’ve never been one to stick to skincare, purely because I have acne prone skin. I’ve had dreadful skin since I was about 10 years old and I’ve tried all sorts of lotions and potions. It’s taken me a long time to feel confident enough to write about my skin but I thought I’d post about what products that I’ve found that finally work well!


Goodreads Challenge 2020 - 6 Months Through

Wowza, we are six months in to 2020. For the most part, I think that this year has flown by. It didn’t seem long ago that we were starting the year, full of hope for the future, to suddenly being unable to visit our friends and family, amongst other things. 

It’s crazy! However, given that we’ve spent a long time in lockdown, due to the Covid-19 Pandemic, it has given me the chance to plough through my Goodreads Challenge for the year. 

For those that don’t know, Goodreads is a great tool for being able to log your reads, leave reviews and browse new books based on recommendations. You can also have friends on there and follow them, to get recommendations from them and to cheer them on. I’ve found so many good reads (pardon the pun) on there. So, I thought it would be nice to write a half way through update on how I’ve got on with my (self set) challenge.




My Top Tips For Potty Training - Getting Dry During The Day - Becoming Mumsy

She’s only gone and done it!

E, at just two years old, has cracked the potty during the day. E is now dry, with only a nappy at bedtime (for now).

We decided when the lockdown was announced and there was a very clear lack of nappies on the shelves in the supermarkets, and prices online had rocketed, so we would see if E was ready to potty train. It turns out she was, and she’s cracked it. 

I won’t lie though, potty training has been one of the hardest milestones for us to crack so far, and I also know it’s something that a lot of parents dread. I mean how many of us really want our child to wee on the floor?

Anyway, I thought it might be helpful to write a post about some of the things that helped us to help E.


Celebrating Mother's Day With Merci Maman*

*My necklace was very kindly gifted to me by Merci Maman in exchange for an honest review.

Since dreaming of having a baby of my own, came the dreams of Mother’s Day and being able to celebrate being a mum with my own child. There’s something so special about having your child around you, having Mother’s Day cards to open, and just generally being treated. 

For a while now, I’ve loved the idea of having a personalised piece of jewellery for me to wear, that I can look at and instantly think of E. Being a mum is absolutely the most important thing to me, so being able to show that off in the form of a gorgeous piece of jewellery is perfect, especially with that all important Mother’s Day coming up.



Center Parcs - Winter 2020

That's another Center Parcs trip that's come to an end!

I always feel so sad when we get home from Center Parcs because there's something so peaceful about being there.

Anyway, I like to document our family adventures, so I thought it would be nice to write about our trip that we are just home from and to give a bit of an insight as to what activities we got up to whilst we were there!
