Review: Shake It Slim Starter Pack & Giveaway

In 2018 so far I’ve been working a little harder to lose weight. I haven’t lost a huge amount but I am 1/2 a stone lighter than I was at the start of the year. Better than nothing! This is despite not eating the best, and having a lot of stress recently leading me to eat naughty food and exercise less than I would like to. Recently I’ve been lacking in motivation to get started with healthier eating and exercise again. This is where Shake It Slim comes in! I have been using the Shake It Slim Starter Pack for the past week and want to share with you exactly how it has gone for me.

Understanding my babies cry with Nelsons Colica®

This is a sponsored post. When my daughter was born I felt like I was pretty prepared. Crying, feeding, changing nappies, dressing a tiny person, it all comes with the territory right? I had read every book I could get my hands on beforehand but nothing really prepares you for something quite like diving in and getting on with it. For me, I felt that it took me a couple of months to get to grips with understanding my babies cry. My daughter was a poorly baby so she cried a LOT. Being able to understand her cry made a huge difference in our lives and my happiness as a new Mum.

Stupid things people say when you have allergies…

Dealing with allergies is never easy. Whether you have a single allergy, non-IGE or IGE, it is always difficult to adjust to the lifestyle changes required to keep safe. Often people without allergies won’t understand the difficulties faced when you, or your child, have an allergy. My own daughter Daisy has an allergy syndrome, called FPIES, which has changed the way we run our home and our life. At present Daisy cannot eat dairy, soy or chicken without a severe vomiting reaction, and has other problems including reflux and asthma. In addition to this, she has intolerances to strawberries and a few other foods. This means that we have to be super vigilant about what foods we feed her, where we eat and even what foods we keep out at home. Almost everything seems to be a potential allergen for Daisy and the simplest of tasks, like giving the cats treats, can become fraught with worry and anxiety about accidental allergen exposure.

How to save money on contact lenses

Contact lenses were the bane of my life for a while. My lovely husband, who has bad eyesight, and Keratoconus, has gone through stages with contact lenses. Sometimes he wants to wear them, and will sign up to buy monthly subscriptions through the opticians, and other times he says he can’t bear wearing them because he works 12 hour shifts and his eyes get dry. Today I want to share with you how to save money on contact lenses.
