Some updates :-)

I haven't given you a lifestyle update in a while, so thought I'd share what I've been up to :)  So, the little man is now nearly 5.5 months old, so crazy! I can't believe how quickly it's gone, and more to the point, I can't believe I'll be back in work in just over 3 months - that's really depressing! Lets keep everything crossed that I win the lottery between now and then!  Both the hubby and I would love to be full time parents :)  We've started weaning him, yes I know it's a little early, but he gave us the signs he was ready, and was very unhappy with just his bottle - it's going well, I'm loving discovering the foods he likes and doesn't like - so far he loves pear and mango (he's a mummy's boy!), and hates carrot, sweet potato & apple - I'll work on those and find a way to get him to like them :)  Watching the little faces he pulls when he tastes a new food is hilarious though :)  I mean seriously, how cute is he!?!

I've also started recording vlogs on YouTube - I say I've only just started, and I really have, I filmed yesterday and will be uploading that soon - I play to film one day each week (maybe every other week) - I've no idea if people will like them, or watch them, but they're fun for me to record, even with my boring life!

Here's my latest video:

Remember the blog post I wrote about afternoon tea in Cardiff?  Well it's been featured in an electronic guide to Cardiff by Millennium hotels which is quite exciting - you can see it here.

Matilda, our cat, has been really spoiled recently, and was sent a book on how us hoomans can make them some lovely treats at home, as if she wasn't spoiled enough :P The best part was the wrapping paper it came in, covered in pictures of her! How awesome is that! Thanks to for that :)

Yep, I have cat slippers! And yes, it's no accident they're in the picture :P

The hubby also started a new job in the last couple of weeks, he's changed from working in BI (business intelligence) to being a software developer, very cool :) He's also gone from working in a massive FTSE 50 company, to working in a small internet startup, which is again very cool :)

Also, today (this morning) I'm off to meet little baby Aria - she's the daughter (only a week old) of a local blogger friend of mine Leanne, she's over at A Slice of my life Wales (with pics of Aria!) - what a beautiful name! We're taking over a bunch of stuff for them - some baby clothes (not many), womanly post-partum stuff and a baby bouncer :)

I think that's it for now - keep your eyes peeled for tomorrow, there's another wonderful giveaway coming up and I think you're going to like it!!!!

  1. What a beautiful baby! Sounds like you're super busy at the moment. Congratulations on being featured in th Cardiff guide!

  2. First of all, he is such a cutie pie! And secondly, I hope to see a further review on the Bourjois foundation, looking forward to your video on it and yes, showing how you apply it would be brilliant! I just purchased Maybelline Lash Sensational last night so I am looking forward to testing it today. Fingers crossed that it'll work on my lashes too.
