Big Scare and 30-32 Week Pregnancy Update

Where is time going?!?!?! It’s crazy. I am definitely turning in to my mother as it seems every other sentence I speak starts with “time flies”…and it’s true! The scariest thing was that the receptionist at the Dr the other day wanted to book me…

Cinnamon Spiced Apple Pie

Cinnamon Spiced Apple Pie

There is nothing better, in my opinion, than a Sunday roast followed by some cinnamon spiced apple pie and homemade custard. It’s one meal that brings people together, families, friends and acquaintances and it’s certainly a popular one for us. I love preparing big feasts…

28-29 Week Pregnancy Update

Firstly, sorry for the recent lack of activity on my blog. As you have probably seen on Instagram / Twitter, we have been in Majorca for one of my best friend’s wedding, which I was a bridesmaid at! The run up to leaving the country was pretty…

Pesto Muffin Frittatas

Every time I make these muffins I do so with the intention of having them in the fridge for the week so that if any one’s hungry there’s something delicious to hand. However, no sooner are these made, they are eaten. They are probably one…

26 Week Pregnancy Update

Wow, the last couple of weeks have literally flown by and I am now 26 weeks and 5 days pregnant. Where is the time going? There’s been quite a bit of drama in our lives lately. Ports (husband) had a car accident 9 days ago.…

Hazelnut Chocolate Ice Cream Pops (Sugar-Free & Vegan)

I am so excited to share this recipe for hazelnut chocolate ice cream pops, not only because they literally taste like Nutella on a stick but this recipe also has absolutely no sugar in it. It’s creamy, chocolaty and indulgent but only has 3g carbs PER LOLLY. It’s…

The hidden danger in deodorants and antiperspirants. . . and the best natural alternatives.

I literally cannot believe how quickly the weeks are starting to fly by now and technically there are only 3 full months left before the baby is officially meant to be evicted from its current womb residence. Still feeling massively under prepared but I am…

What I Ate Wednesday!

What I Ate Wednesday!

At last we are in my favourite month of May and the sun has finally got its hat well and truly on! The skies have been completely cloudless and I am freckling up at a rate of knots. It’s so nice to feel the warmth and…

Sweet Potato, Leek and Lime Fritters

Sweet Potato, Leek and Lime Fritters

Whether you have a health condition or not, we should all want to look after our bodies and nourish them with as much nutritional goodness as we can get. I am not a preacher and I certainly would never force how I eat / or…

My knickers don’t fit, but I’d do anything for you baby. (22 Week Update)

Somewhat optimistically I bought a pair of non maternity leggings yesterday, black and stretchy in a size medium. They looked perfectly fine when I held them against myself and declared to Ports (husband) that there was plenty of room for my favourite womb lodger. However,…
