Quick and Easy Dinners | Baby & Toddler Food

Sometimes I feel very lazy and have absolutely no desire to cook, so having frozen home-made food that can be defrosted quickly is the easiest option!

Batch cooking and then freezing meals into small portions is great for a number of reasons:

Rocker Family | Mummy and Baby Style

Back in June 2009, my husband and I got a day ticket to Download Festival and headed up there together; we got very very drunk, listened to great music and slept in his car - the next morning was horrendous, but the day was amazing and it was the start of us becoming really great friends.

I've always liked rock music but Download re-ignited my love for it! Since then we've gone to countless gigs and festivals, listening to some brilliant bands.

I'd love for James to have the same love for rock/metal music as we do. I play the PG stuff to him (no scary thrash metal or stuff with swearing) and we'll dance around, playing air guitar!

Until he wants to decide what he wears, I'm loving putting him in little rocker outfits. Some of the big high street stores do metal t-shirts or you can find lots of items on eBay.

Setting Goals and Pushing Yourself

Sometimes the things we want we find impossible to achieve because we listen to the doubt in our minds....

'Somebody else is doing it better'

'I don't have the time'

'I'm too tired'

We let our self-doubt get the better of us!

Soft, Radiant and Long Lasting Spring Make-up

As the weather has started to warm up, I'm loving wearing make-up that looks quite simple, but I do still like my foundation to have good coverage and staying power. I also need quite a bit of help to brighten my dark under-eye bags that come from a crappy nights sleep #MumLife

5 Most Popular Pushchairs

Since becoming a mum I have become obsessed with pushchairs. I never thought this would happen, but I don't ever find myself checking out other women's clothes any more...oh no...I'm now oohing over their pushchair!

So, I thought I'd compile a list of the nicest looking and most popular pushchairs which other mum's have raved about and that I am just a little jealous I don't have.

The first four are travel systems and the fifth is more like a stroller, although it does have a newborn nest you can buy for it!

One Year Old | Baby Update

I thought I'd be an emotional wreck on James' birthday, but it was the lead up to it that was worse! I do look back at his newborn photos and reminisce, but I love his growing character and personality; I also love how much easier it is now! Although the sleepless nights are still very much with us, it's not quite as bad - the feedings are shorter, there's no burping and no poo explosions!

I Have a One Year Old? ..Bring on the Toddler Years!

Everyone is probably fed up of hearing me go on about how I can't believe James is now a one year old...but what the!? Where did the time go!?

Life gets so busy once your baby arrives, that it literally zooms before your eyes. It's scary!!

Being a Parent is Hard

I'm currently trying to put James to bed....this can sometimes take an hour and is probably the most stressful part of my day!

Being a mum is amazing, but it's not what I expected! I looked at stay-at-home mums and thought 'what do you mean you don't have time, you have all the time in the world'. How fricking naive I was!!

Converse & Ripped Jeans | Mummy and Baby Style

I've got into the habit of just throwing on the same thing, day after day; I've got lazy and disorganised, but have decided it's time to make a bit more effort and actually wear some of the other items I have in my wardrobe!

My plan of action is...lay out outfits for both James and I the night before - then even in my sleepy, bedraggled state, I can just chuck them on quickly!

This outfit is not exactly inspired...but it's a lot more thought out than most days. I even tried to match us together!
