Reviews and Recipes

7 Jan

Hi folks ✨

Well… It’s been such a busy week so far!!! Monday was tests… Tuesday was scan, Anti D injection (which I did NOT like & it made me feel so ill) & a consultant appointment. Yesterday I braved the dentists chair to have a half filling in a small crack in on of my wisdom teeth. I’m glad I went to have it corrected – but I was super scared. I have a bit of a phobia of the dentists chair… But luckily for me I have a lovely dentist who is superb at making you feel at ease. So today is going to be a much needed pyjama day ✨

Yesterday before I went to the dentist – I received the most gorgeous parcel in the shape of the Scentsy ‘Whoot’ Electric Warmer. It’s seriously stunning… especially of an evening as it lights up. It created a lovely little pattern on my wall. This Owl warmer is priced at £39.00. In my opinion it truly is worth every penny. Once you have the warmer, then there’s no limit on what scents you can use. Plus a bar to melt is only £5.50 & it splits into 6 pieces. So that’s like 6 separate wax tarts. It’s excellent value. You all know I’m very much a Yankee Candle girl… I was VERY skeptical about Scentsy, but I’m completely won over. With a candle I’m always worried of the smoke it kicks out & it discolouring my walls. I mean, before we moved I had to repaint my lounge wall a few times to cover up really bad soot marks. Plus, now that we’ll have a little person in the home from March, I just think this electric warmer will be safer too… no naked flame. Where I’ve positioned the warmer – the flex is hidden down the back of the unit it’s stood on. As the wax is heated at a low temperature – the scent will outlast a regular candle too. My warmer is in my lounge & I could smell the fragrance all the way upstairs in all of the bedrooms. When I came downstairs this morning I could smell it – even though it had been off all night. Then the best part is – there are over 80 fragrances!!! All you need to do is pour the wax away when you fancy a change. 

If you’d like to order or peruse the collection, click here. Or if you’re on Facebook, you can like this page & ask questions & see all of the latest special offers to be had. I seriously cannot recommend these products enough! ✨

I’ve been making some truly yummy concoctions in my Crock Pot… all incredibly low in fat & calories too! 


  • 250g Lean Steak Mince
  • 1 Tin Chopped Tomatoes
  • Frozen Diced Onion
  • Frozen Sliced Peppers
  • Frozen Spinach
  • 3 Celery Sticks Sliced
  • Frozen Sweetcorn
  • 1 Tin Bean Salad
  • 1 Tsp Garlic Granules
  • 1 Tsp Dried Chilli Flakes

I cook on low literally all day. You may need to thicken with some tomato puree before serving.  

Spaghetti & Meatballs

I love spaghetti & meatballs… Quorn is a great alternative to meat & it’s super low in fat. I find that the meatballs are a bit ‘bouncy’ in texture if you cook on the hob… but in a slow cooker or Crock Pot – they’re amazing! Really tender & they soak up the flavours really well!

  • Quorn Swedish Meatballs
  • 500g Pasatta
  • Frozen Diced Onion
  • 1 Tsp Garlic Granules
  • 1 Tsp Mixed Herbs

Again, I leave this to cook all day on low. I serve with dried pasta as this is lower in fat & calories than fresh pasta. 

Chicken Chasseur/Casserole

This is my healthy version of a chassuer… but it’s more like a casserole really.

  • Frozen Skinless & Boneless Chicken Thighs
  • 1 Tin Chopped Tomatoes
  • Frozen Green Beans
  • Frozen Diced Onion
  • 1 Tsp Garlic Granules
  • Sprinkle of Thyme
  • Sprinkle or Tarragon

Cook on low all day. I tend to serve with potatoes & veg. The chicken will break apart & give a ‘pulled chicken’ effect. Chicken thighs tend to cook better in the slow cooker as they don’t dry out like breast can.

By using a lot of frozen ingredients, tinned or dried… you cut down time spent in the kitchen. I like to keep my recipes quick & simple for a busy lifestyle… Coz lets face it… we all seem to lead hectic lives these days. Also, using frozen ingredients cuts down on a lot of waste as you simply use what you need -then bung it back into the freezer. Frozen products tend to be that bit cheaper too. Healthy eating does not need to cost a fortune. My monthly food bill is a lot cheaper these days. Some dried herbs & a tin of tomatoes is much cheaper & healthier than a pre-made jar of sauce. The oil, salt & sugar content in a jar of sauce is normally ridiculous! If you’d like daily recipes then like my facebook page here. After I recieved good blood test results with regard to my sugar levels & vitamin levels… I owe that to my healthy lifestyle. Baby T is thriving on it too 💙

 We’ve bought a lot of stuff over the last few days from MotherCare. Don’t forget that they have an amazing sale & offers on right now 💙
Well… I shall leave this post here.

Thanks again for reading… I’ve had another peak in my monthly stats.

Love & Huggles,

Coupons, Codes and Freestuff

12 Dec

Hi Folks ✨ 

Eeeeeeeeck… Guess what!? Yesterday I began my maternity leave  

 I’ll be on a break from work now until February 2017!!! Can you believe it!? I’m so super excited 💙 so that means I’ll have plenty time to do even more reviews & discount hunting for you all ✨

So, we all love a discount… But even better when it’s free… Right? Well, for all you Boots advantage card holders I totally recommend downloading the Boots app onto your smart device. You’ll be able to download offers designed for you based around what you normally buy. Since joining the Boots Parenting Club (I would highly recommend joining to any parents to be or new parents – you can sign up here) I’ve gained 10 points per every £1 that I spend. Not only that – I get offers sent direct to my smart device via the app that I can download onto my Boots Advanage Card. At the moment there’s a great offer on a free MAM bottle & soother  

 Well since I finished work at 12noon yesterday – I decided to waddle over to Boots to collect my freebie… It’s so cute!  

It’s really worth going to collect! I also activated a 25% off coupon any item of full priced clothing  

 I just could not resist this gorgeous onesie. 

There’s also a 25% off coupon for all Mum to Be toiletries. I tried some of the Mum & Me Cussons Bump Bath Soak  

 It’s really nice – I had such a lovely relaxing bubble bath with it. Loads of bubbles ✨ 

So not only do you get money off coupons… Free stuff… But you can collect loads of points!!! 

 I’ve currently got over £50 of points. I’ve managed to collect these points since August! I’m saving them up to buy something nice for Baby T when he arrives… Maybe a lovely high chair or something!? I really like the Chicco range of high chairs. So I shall carry on saving up the points. Normally I’d be splurging the points on something for myself… Like perfume etc… But all I want to spend my money on these days is my little boy. So, if any beauty companies would like to send me products to review – please feel free ☺️ Soon my website will be up & running where I’ll be able to feature more reviews & it’ll make it easier for you to contact me. Once it’s up & ready – I’ll be posting a link.

I seem to be getting bigger everyday now 💙 

 Soon I’m gonna need a whole new wardrobe I think lol. 

Yesterday when I got home from work & my little mini shopping spree, I was delivered a lovely little package from Paperchase … So please stay tuned for a fabulous review of the products I was sent 🎁

Today I received my Christmas BirchBox. It’s utter amazing!!! I would highly recommend ordering it to everyone. I was sent £60 worth of products in a glitzy clutch bag.  

 With the coupon code I was sent, I was able to order this beauty box for the bargain price of £6.95!!! You can see the fab quality products I was sent. I also know that there’s still some left up for grabs! So if you’d like to order one then follow this link here: https://www.birchbox.co.uk/invite/zd49d then enter the code: CLOUDXMAS You will need to subscribe, but once your December box arrives, then cancel it. That’s what I do so I’m not in a subscription. I only order when I’m sent an exclusive code. When I get these codes I’ll pass them on to you guys ✨

Well, I’m gonna leave this post here as I’m pretty tired this evening & I’m off to snuggle under a blankie & watch Star Wars. 

Thanks again for reading ✨ and a big hello to all of my new readers 💙

Love & Huggles,
