How to lose the baby weight with Slendertoxtea

How to lose the baby weight with Slendertoxtea

It’s now almost a year since I gave birth to my fantastic baby daughter (where does that time go?) and despite my best intentions to get back to my pre-pregnancy weight as quickly as possible it got to the Summer and I was still a good few pounds above where I wanted to be. I had put on about two stone whilst I was pregnant and about half of that disappeared when I gave birth. I continued to drop another few pounds in the first few weeks of motherhood – partly from breastfeeding and partly from a nasty kidney infection which floored me for a couple of weeks – but then came Christmas and I couldn’t resist indulging, particularly in alcohol which I’d been avoiding for nine months! So a few pounds crept back on and then despite a few attempts in 2016 to eat healthily I hovered around the same weight, feeling stuck. I needed something to give me a bit of a push in the right direction...

eBay Owl/Fox Handbag

eBay Owl/Fox Handbag

I just couldn’t resist sharing this cute handbag that I purchased from eBay recently! I’m not quite sure if it’s supposed to be an owl or a fox, but both are currently in fashion and I just think it’s so cute! The press stud on it’s little nose unfastens to open up the bag, and whilst there are no separate pockets inside it’s quite a decent size to fit your everyday essentials in. The strap is quite a good length, and it’s adjustable too using buckles so you could wear it across the body or over one shoulder. It looks a bit like leather although I think it’s probably made from plastic given the cheap price! But it’s good value, and it comes in 6 different colours. I went for the orange as I think that’s the most fox-like colour, but I think the brown looks good too. I’ve already had lots of positive comments when I’ve been using my fox/owl bag, it’s the perfect size to use when meeting...

Kipling – Abela SN Small Shoulder Bag #SheWearsKipling

Kipling – Abela SN Small Shoulder Bag #SheWearsKipling

I was lucky enough to be chosen by Kipling to be part of their IMAGINISTA #SheWearsKipling campaign and was sent this beautiful, classic Abela SN Small Shoulder Bag* in Black Metal colour. The metallic Abela SN Small Shoulder Bag is a 2 litre size bag with easy-access pockets on the front and back that are fastened with a press stud. The interior of the Abela SN bag is lined with fawn coloured fabric and houses a small zip pocket where you can store your lipstick or keys. The canvas shoulder strap can be adjusted from 65cm to 140.5cm which means that the bag can be carried over the shoulder or across the body making it really useful for lots of different occasions – when going out for a meal, for instance, I use it as a shoulder bag, but when going shopping I extend the strap and wear it across my body keeping my hands free. The overall size of the Abela SN Small Shoulder Bag is 24.5 L...

Zatchels – White Ditsy Floral Micro Satchel Review

Zatchels – White Ditsy Floral Micro Satchel Review

I love the current trend for satchels, I used to have a traditional brown leather-trimmed canvas one as my schoolbag when I was very young, but I adore the vibrant colours and patterns that they are available in now. Last Summer I purchased my first modern satchel from Zatchels – a UK company that promotes traditional British manufacturing, every satchel ordered is made to order in Leicester from high quality leather. You may be interested to read my previous review of my Zatchels Candy Gold Cracked Metallic Satchel. When I saw that Zatchels were having a Summer sale I was very excited, I was planning to order an 11.5 inch floral one but unfortunately they all sold out before I got a chance to order. I then noticed that there was a new limited edition smaller Micro-Satchel available (7 inches wide) in the half-price sale and I wasn’t going to let this one get away! I ordered the White Ditsy Floral Micro Satchel (it’s also available with a purple...

Paul & Joe – Floral Make-Up Bag

Paul & Joe – Floral Make-Up Bag

This Floral Make-up Bag from Paul & Joe truly is a thing of beauty! I first saw it reviewed on one of my favourite blogs, Girl With MakeUp, and I had to have one! It’s so pretty with an aqua and lilac floral fabric and the Paul & Joe logo is printed on the front. “What’s so special about it?” I hear you ask. Well, apart from being really pretty it has lots of useful pockets and compartments to help keep make-up and toiletries well organised, and the really clever part about it is that it works a little bit like a Filofax with 2 removable pouches that attach to metal rings, a bit like a ring binder. The image above clearly shows the 2 removable pouches – one is a clear mesh so you can see what is inside it, the other matches the outside of the make-up bag in the cute aqua and lilac floral fabric. Not only does this beautiful bag house the 2 removable pouches,...

Zatchels – Candy Gold Cracked Metallic Satchel

Zatchels – Candy Gold Cracked Metallic Satchel

This is my new purchase and I couldn’t wait to share it with you! I have wanted a coloured satchel for ages but wasn’t sure what colour as there are so many around these days. I ended up choosing this Candy Gold Cracked Metallic Satchel from Zatchels and I haven’t stopped using it since it arrived. Zatchels is a UK company that promotes traditional British manufacturing. Every satchel ordered is made to order in Leicester from high quality leather. The leather on my satchel is really stiff at the moment as it is so new but it will soften over time. I chose the smallest of the Zatchels available – 11.5 inch – this size doesn’t have room for a card holder on front but the larger sizes do. This small size will fit an A5 notepad or diary inside, and there is plenty of room for my purse, keys, etc, plus I keep my lipstick and mirror in the little pocket on the front. You can also pay...
