Life… Weightloss… Holidays… Babies and Nurseries

2 Aug

Hi folks,

Is the Summer really over? I do hope not. Seth has so many new amazing garden toys that we just haven’t been able to use fully yet. I want picnics & fun days out in the sun sun! We’ve been working super hard too to get our garden up to scratch. We’ve still work to do… but already it’s starting to take shape & look better. At the end of the summer we’re going to re-seed the grass, so hopefully by next Spring/Summer… we’ll have a lovely plush lawn for Seth to play on.

So… what’s been happening in the life of IxxyPoco lately. Well… my weightloss is going really well!!! I feel so much happier & healthier for it. I have more energy & everything is just so much easier when you’re lighter. I’ve lost 1 stone so far! I really want to lose another now… I’m so motivated & focussed. We’re off to a family wedding this weekend down in Chester & I have a lovely dress size 14 I really wanted to slim into. I had no hope of fitting into it 4 weeks ago & guess what??? It fits!!! woo hoo! I’m so incredibly excited & proud of myself. So… I have the fascinator, bag & shoes! Fantastic! I’ll be sure to take plenty of pics.

I’ve literally gone back to basics with my cooking & meal plans. I’m eating lots of fruit & veg… drinking plenty water & cooking everything from scratch. Yes, we do reach for those jars of sauces when we simply don’t have time or we’re feeling under the weather… but I’m really trying to keep those scenarios to a minimum. But I’m not gonna lie… I’ve still had the odd McD’s & KFC… Oooops!

The hubster treated me to a gorgeous new Modalu satchel last week… I adore it!!! I’ve already had plenty compliments – which is always nice. I also bought myself some new DKNY perfume… well… a new bag always needs a new bottle of fragrance in it 🙂 Well that’s my excuse anyways.

Me & Seth had a fun little visit to the hubsters place of work last week. We even got to have lunch at the Rockpool Cafe. Seth had his own little meal specially made for him by the head chef. He does love a bolognese. He even got to meet Muse’s Tour Manager & posed for a pic with him. It was super cool to see all of the Robbie Williams tour memorabilia. I am a bit of a fan. I am so incredibly proud of my hubster. He does an amazing job & gets to do some amazing projects. I know it’s super cheesy… but I am one proud little wifey!

We’re still busying ourselves a lot around the house too. We’re fully unpacked now, but we’re still just making the place our own… adding all of our little personal touches. I think we’ll put off any painting until next spring. The paintwork is actually really good – but it’s all magnolia & I just want to change it up a little. Well, not a lot actually as I still want things fairly neutral… but I just want a nice fresh feel. We’ve swapped the 2 spare rooms over too. So we’ve made the guest room up in the smallest room. It’s really good actually as we’ve got a big double sleigh bed in there with room to spare. So for a small room it’s fairly roomy. The 3rd smallest room is now literally bare apart from baby items we’ve saved from when Seth was little. This will hopefully become a nursery… eeeeck! I won’t divulge just yet what the theme & colour scheme will be. But it’s a great sized room & shape. It’s easily 3 times the size of Seth’s nursery at our old house. Seth adores his new room… it’s just so big & he loves playing in it on a morning when he first wakes up.

Day to day me & Seth have been enjoying play dates, shopping dates & lunch dates. We’ve also signed up for some summer classes at Music Bugs too over the holidays. Seth loves those sessions so much. Maybe if the weather decides to pick up then we’ll be able to go for picnics in the park too. I’m holding out hope that the lovely sunny summer weather will return. 

I think that’s pretty much everything we’ve been up too. I’ve got some lovely reviews coming up for Baby Sebamed & Frezyderm UK. I’ve also had a sneak peak at the new Crabtree & Evelyn Press Release detailing all of their lovely new products. I shall be reviewing some of the new products very soon. 

Thank you so much for reading! 

Love & Huggles,
