Lush Ickle Baby Bot Bath Bomb Review

For Matt and I, it's a real treat to have a bath bomb from LUSH. If money wasn't an issue, or even if there was just a little bit more disposable income, then we'd probably use them regularly but as it stands, they are a luxury afforded to us for special occasions only. Mini, on the other hand, hadn't had the good fortune yet but thanks to the Ickle Baby Bot bath bomb we picked up in our local store last week, his luck was about to change!

Defeated by Chronic Illness?

There's a quote from one of my favourite books, The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky, that basically says "So, this is my life. And I want you to know that I am both happy and sad and I'm still trying to figure out how that could be." This is how I feel right now. I've had a fantastic mini break with my boys at Chessington World of Adventures this weekend and yet here I am, entirely defeated, beaten by the villain that is chronic illness. That thief of joy, health and hope.

So today I'm going to share with you the six spooky-ish books that I'm looking forward to reading this autumn!

What I Read: Summer 2019

August is over! Hooray, we are so close to autumn that I can smell the faint aroma of pumpkins and hear the soothing crunch of people walking over fallen leaves. But the end of summer also brings a close to my summer reading challenge and so here I am, talking about the 12 books I read this summer!

August Favourites

Another month of the year has vanished into thin air and now I'm only a few weeks away from marrying my soulmate before embarking on a fantastic Disney-moon. The next few months of my life are literally what dreams are made of. But before all of that, I wanted to reflect on all the things I loved last month.
