VAX ONEPWR Blade 4 Cordless Vacuum – A Review

I’m not a domestic goddess. I’m not one of those people that enjoy cleaning. I try to keep our house as clean as I can but it’s a chore to me and I don’t get excited about it. Having said that, we were given the chance to try out and review the VAX ONEPWR Blade 4 Cordless Vacuum. I was so delighted and here’s why:

How to Create a Vegan Diet for Kids – Guest Post

A few years ago, an Australian couple made the news as they appeared in court where they pleaded guilty to failing to provide for a child and causing serious injury. The child was malnourished. In the press, much was made of the family’s vegan diet, but the court acknowledged that the mother’s depression had played a significant role in the poor care given to the child. The plant-based food being given to the child wasn’t a problem because it was vegan, the problem was that the food being fed to the child wasn’t providing sufficiently balanced nutrition. This could easily have happened with a meat-based diet, because one of the major issues in the case was lack of knowledge.

Love Corn – Our Family’s New Favourite Snack

With two hungry growing boys in the house, we are always looking for new foods to offer them. They always have their head in the pantry searching for a snack and will more often than not pull out a chocolate biscuit or a packet of crisps. Love Corn offered to send us some of their snack bags to try and I jumped at the chance to give the twins (and their Dad!) something healthier to graze on.

Chocolate Oat Cookies

Chocolate Oat Cookies

Cookies are a great thing to bake with kids and with the UK currently in lockdown I decided to try to create a new recipe that I could bake with the boys but which would also fit in with what I’m eating during Veganuary. They have been taste tasted and approved by the boys and their dad and I’ve already been asked “Mummy! When can we make those new cookies again?!”

Raspberry & White Chocolate Blondies

Raspberry & White Chocolate Blondies

I think that brownies and blondies are my favourite thing to bake. They are super easy to mix, don’t take too long to bake and are cooled and ready to eat quite quickly too. This is important as I’m not a very patient person so I can’t wait to eat the cake that I’ve made! These Raspberry and White Chocolate blondies are gluten and dairy free and are really easy to make.

Aubrey Bay aromatherapy

Using Aromatherapy to get a Better Nights Sleep with Aubrey Bay

I’m not a great sleeper, I’ve never slept well, since I was a teenager I think. I’m not a morning person. I always feel more rested when I go to bed late and wake up late. My ideal hours to keep would be bedtime at midnight and to get up at 9am. Unfortunately life doesn’t always work like that, especially when you have children and a partner who works shifts. Broken sleep is a common occurrence in our house. I need all the help I can get to help me sleep better and that’s where aromatherapy comes in.
