Goals for the Year Ahead

Yes I am a little bit late to the party but hey, we have a whole year to do these things, why rush into them? Also, the baby kind of gets in the way and time disappears in a whirlwind of nappies and toothless grins.

I don’t have anything groundbreaking I want to achieve this year, last year was quite a biggie with having a baby, renovating the house and turning 30 so I’m making my goals a little more straightforward.

The Fourth Trimester: My Experience

Seeing as it's nearly the end of the year, I thought it would be good to look back over the past three months of having this silly sausage in our lives. We're technically been out of the fourth trimester for a couple of weeks now but funnily enough it's been pretty busy so I'm only just getting round to writing this post (and devour a mince pie) as Eva naps!

I didn't even realise there was a fourth trimester until I was about 8 and a half months pregnant, it's what the first three months of a baby's life is referred to as they develop from a newborn into a fully fledged baby. Eva's now three and a half months old (madness!) and is turning into a delicious little girl with plenty of personality. I wanted to gather a few thoughts on different areas and how we're getting on so we can look back in the future to see how things have changed and if it helps anyone too, that's great!

My Winter Skincare Holy Grail

Now that I’m the ripe old age of 30 (still not used to saying that, dear lord) and have a touch of sleep deprivation to battle with thanks to our delicious baby, my skincare routine was in need of a shake up for winter.

I never really notice how bad my wrinkles and eye bags are until I see a photo of myself laughing and then I have a mini panic while frantically googling ‘Botox near me’. I’m not doing anything quite that drastic just yet but I have added a few new products into my skincare routine which have quickly become my holy grail products.

Thankfully Eva has started to sleep much better recently so by the time she’s in bed, I actually have a little bit of energy left rather than needing to go to bed when she does about 8pm after a quick micellar water and moisturiser. After I have done my girlfriend duty of asking how Joe’s day in the outside world was, eaten dinner and watched something on TV with Joe, I take myself off to bed at around 10 and treat myself to at least 10 minutes of indulging in skincare.

The Best Gifts to Get New Parents

We've had this little monster in our lives for over two months now and thanks to a few rainy days in Manchester, I've been contemplating the past two months and thinking about what wisdom I can pass on to anyone expecting a baby or knows someone who is.

I have a few posts up my sleeve but thought I'd start with this one because who doesn't like gifts? We had so many amazing gifts from friends and family, we were absolutely spoiled rotten

The Future of Dating in Manchester

Earlier this week my sister and I were chatting about everything and nothing over buckets of tea and mince pies (don't judge), she had the day off work so came to keep me company with Eva before collecting her girlies from school. We started talking about my blog and how I'm keeping my brain working while I'm on maternity leave, which is something I'm really trying to do with my blog, because to be honest memorising nursery rhymes and treating my daily dose of Pointless as education is not quite working for me...
