Coconut and Vanilla Chia Seed Pudding (low sugar recipe)

Coconut and Vanilla Chia Seed Pudding (low sugar recipe)

Chia seeds are, in the world of food trends, pretty huge at the moment and it’s easy to see why. In terms of nutrition they’re quite a little power-house, containing more Omega-3 than salmon, pound for pound. The seeds come from a plant which is related to mint (although they don’t taste minty) and are high in fibre, protein and calcium amongst other things, and eating them has been proven to aid weight-loss. Some of …

The Importance of Music

The Importance of Music

Music is something which is hugely important in the Mum’s the Word house. Husband and I are both avid listeners of all types of music and it has marked so many important occasions. When we met, one of the things that we realised we had in common was a massively eclectic taste in music which, surprisingly, overlapped in so many places. When we discovered that our favourite song was one and the same, something just …

Go Green with PG Tips

I don’t know about you, but I love a nice cup of tea, and I’m a big fan of different types of tea too, so when PG Tips asked me to write about their new Green Tea and the enormous monkey floating on the Thames to promote it, I thought “hey, why not?”. They’ve conducted a survey which has shown some surprising results about stress and relaxation, which you can read about after this video: …

Tips to find joy in the motherhood

Tips to find joy in the motherhood

There are days when motherhood is one of the most fulfilling and rewarding time in your life. When your baby smiles at you with its little arms around your neck and refuses to let go because mother is the only one who can tuck him or her into bed. But there are other times when you’re exhausted and nothing seems to go as it should. Your baby may wake up multiple times in the night …

Be a Fitness Superhero

Be a Fitness Superhero

Just recently, I’ve been thinking about ways to get myself back to a healthier mindset, after spectacularly failing with my healthy eating and gym kick at the end of last year, so when protein powder shop Discount Supplements asked if I’d like to take their Fitness Superhero quiz, I thought it would be really interesting. You see, the quiz is designed to tell you where your strengths lie when it comes to slogging it out at …

Treating Myself with MandM Direct

Treating Myself with MandM Direct

One thing that I’m not very good at is buying clothes for myself. There are several reasons for this: I never feel hugely confident that I pick things which suit me or are very flattering. When I was younger I had a fairly distinct sense of style and knew what I liked and what looked good. Since having kids, my shape has changed and I always feel like I’m dressed all wrong.  I always feel …

Dressing Girls for a Rubbish Summer

One thing that I’ve found quite tricky these last few weeks is getting the balance right when dressing the girls. The appallingly bad “summer” weather means that the usual dresses and sandals have been completely out of the question, but it’s also not quite cold enough for coats and jumpers, so it’s been a case of finding some middle ground. Husband is a big fan of layering because it means that you can adjust what …

Why I’m Not A “Cool Mum” (And Why I’m Totally Okay With That)

Why I’m Not A “Cool Mum” (And Why I’m Totally Okay With That)

Being a parent really makes you view things in a totally different way. I was talking to some friends the other day about how, when we were kids, we did the whole ‘hanging out in front of the shops to ask an adult to buy us cigarettes’ thing. We were all saying that, now we’re mums, there’s no way in the WORLD that we’d buy cigarettes for a child who was underage and that when …
