#LittleLoves – Maleficent, Magic And A Touch Of Pink

Welcome to another week of #LittleLoves, a post in which I share a few of the many things that I have particularly enjoyed or have taken a shine to throughout the past seven days. This week has been pretty hum-drum, we’ve not done anything particularly outstanding yet there has still been plenty to love.


I haven’t done a great deal of reading other than the usual checking of emails. I have however received some rather lovely emails from a number of companies that have all asked me to carry out reviews on particular items on their behalf.

I will be sharing some of these with you in the near future and am very much looking forward to getting back to reviewing random goodies throughout 2017.…

Ditching The Diet

It’s been one week since I started Slimming World and whilst I am not the type to quit, last night made me think otherwise when after seven days of damned hard work I stood on those scales and found I lost nada, nothing, not a single sodding pound.

I quit Slimming World! I know that it works for many of you out there as it has done for myself in the past. This time around I really went for it, over the past seven days I have spent a fortune on ‘speed/ free foods’, eaten like a rabbit, wondered what the hell I was going to make for each meal of the day and generally felt miserable.…

#LivingArrows – A Snapchat Special 2/52 (2017)

Welcome to my second #LivingArrows post of 2017, a Snapchat Special filled with fun and filters.

As you will probably be aware I like to use social media, I am on almost every platform you can imagine and to add to this have recently joined the strange World of Snapchat.

I am not entirely sure what I am doing with Snapchat just yet but give me time and as with most things, I will figure it out. I have however managed to find the hilarious photo filters and made some use of them.

If you fancy adding me on Snapchat then my username is RachelSwirl, I will be keeping a ‘story’ and all that malarkey given time.…

#MySundayPhoto – Sandy Silhouettes

It’s Sunday, the weekend is officially over and yet I feel like it barely began. We have just and so got back into some kind of a routine and already both Paul and I feel utterly shattered. It’ll be an early night for both of us tonight I think, I for one need to catch up on some serious beauty sleep!

I read a meme earlier on Facebook which said “Parenting is like a walk in the park, JURASSIC PARK” and I totally agree, kids somehow mange to knock the stuffing out of us.

If we aren’t running around after them then we are busy tidying away their many toys, helping them with their homework, feeding them, bathing them, reading to them, begging them to go to sleep or simply just sitting with them hoping Peppa the sodding Pig might allow us two minutes rest bite.…
