Lee Stafford curl your heart out curling tong review & competition

My hair is the bane of my life! Sometimes it looks lovely, and I feel great. Other times it is frizz central. I’ve tried using Frizz Ease, and numerous other products. I have also been looking after it more recently. I am not styling it daily like I used to. Also the main difference for my hair has been getting it cut every 8 weeks. This has had fantastic results for me. I’ve had some layering put into my hair and overall it looks and feels better. Even the bad hair days are not so bad. Anyway, since having the layering done my hair has gone back more to its usual wavy form. This is lovely and something that I want to improve on at times. I was offered the chance to try the Lee Stafford curl your heart out curling tong. This Lee Stafford curling cone tong was ordered from Amazon and I got next day delivery. You can too with a free trial of Amazon Prime.

Living Arrows 21/52 – Daisy and Daddy weekend

I can’t believe it is Monday already! My weekend in Manchester is over! It was my first weekend away from Daisy and the first time I didn’t sleep next to her at night. However, it was a great weekend with good friends and Daisy and Daddy got to have a whole weekend together. Our Living Arrows 21/52 post is now live.

Living Arrows is a linky from the lovely Donna from What The Redhead Said that you can find here. Parents are invited to link up weekly and share photos of their children from the previous week. I love taking part and I’m looking forward to looking back at the end of the year.

Finding me time as a parent – 7 ways I’m achieving it

Lets be real here. Finding time for yourself as a parent can be tough. Whether your child is a newborn or twenty they are probably still taking up much of your time. My own daughter is one and I’m always struggling to find the right balance. Between working from home, my husband working shifts, owning an allotment, having family nearby, having pets and Daisy too there is always lots to do. Add to that wanting to get out more, wanting to have a clean home and wanting to find time for date nights and we are pretty busy. Time is the one commodity, besides sleep, that parents seem to want so badly. It is possible to find time for yourself but often by sacrificing something else. Now I’ve made a list of little ways that I’m finding me time as a parent.

Can you get a better deal on currency with WeSwap?

*This is a collaborative post*. I’m somebody who doesn’t go abroad that often. However, that is changing now. We are renewing our passports this year (mine was still in my maiden name!) and we are going to Paris. Then we are going to Centerparcs. My favourite. After that we are going to go for a week abroad somewhere hot! I can’t wait to have a nice break. It will make a change to go abroad again and I’m looking forward to exploring some new parts of the World too. Today I want to talk to you about WeSwap and find out whether it is possible to get a better deal on currency. Now I’m going to horrify some people by saying that usually I would just get my travel money from the Post Office. I’m usually not that worried about looking for competitive prices. At least I wasn’t when I last went abroad! That has changed now of course as I look after my money.

Need more light in your life? You need the Needlite!

I work from home full-time these days. While I love it, and feel fortunate, I don’t always get outside as much as I would like. Some days my daughter is poorly or I have deadlines to meet. This means that we can have entire days where we are stuck indoors. While we have quite a lot of natural light in our home it never really feels like enough. I leave our curtain and blinds open all day. Sometimes all night too. However this still doesn’t always feel like enough. This is why I’m excited to talk to you today about the Needlite.
