My little ballerina

I just wanted to share some adorable pictures with you of Pop Princess taken before her ballet lesson this week, she is the cutest thing ever.

Unfortunately they didn't have the ballet shoes in her size so she is looking super trendy in her little ugg style boots which are made by Babies in Sheeps Clothing, who I look after in my consultancy role. They have a 50% sale on at the moment and as I know how good their stuff is I bought these boots for Pop Princess and even some little ones for Rock Baby! I would never normally mention any clients within my personal blog, but I am friends with Lysette who runs the company and she is a fellow mum too trying to juggle everything so we have a lot in common.

Today I have been to the Toy Fair in London, but in my usual working mum role trying tying to juggle everything, I was racing around like a headless chicken. This morning Pop Princess had her induction at her new nursery. The visit went really well and she loved it there, all the kids seemed happy and really relaxed and the staff were brilliant with her. She starts the week after next and even has a cute uniform to wear!

So after the visit finished I dropped her home and dashed to London on the train, eventually got to the Toy Fair, zoomed round it, had a quick meeting with some lovely ladies who I hope to be working with soon and then hot footed it over to Tottenham Court Road for a music project and then had to zoom back to Kings Cross to get the train home.

I arrived just in time to relieve my dad who had been looking after the girls this afternoon and it was a quick wash, brush teeth, milk and story time for them both and then in bed.

And now here I am checking emails, writing proposals and sneaking a little blog out.

I am a Glee Mama!

Its been a really busy week this week, work has been crazy. I was in London on Tuesday for meetings and I also went to a trade show called Top Drawer and I met some really lovely people and companies most of which were children's and Baby brands just starting out, so I'm hoping that in the next few weeks I will get to work with some of them.

Today is my only day off so we try and make the most of it and the girls and I have had really lovely fun packed day. It started at 9 30 with Frog's Chorus run by a fab lady called Duvessa who sings and plays the guitar and the kids think she is brilliant. Rock Baby was shaking her little hips, clapping and grooving away and pop princess was on fire running around the room and singing along.

Straight after we darted to the dentist for a check up and I have to admit I am a total wuss when it comes to dentists but obviously can't show any sign of that in front of pop princess who went first and promptly received her sticker for being a good girl. Me on the other hand has to have two fillings, I quickly told the dentist that I would have it done next time, if only they knocked you out like the dentist in Glee this week.

Talking of Glee I am an official Glee Mama! thanks to the great idea of Little M's Mummy over at Mummy's Busy World.Yes it may seem sad but I love the show and it seems I'm not alone there seems to be a little Glee Mama recruitment frenzy going on so if you want to join the gang hop over here and you can be the proud owner of a badge like this:

I'm a Glee Mama

This afternoon Pop Princess had her first swimming lesson on her own! I was nervous for her but she loved it, and the teacher gave her loads of confidence and I'm sure in no time at all she will be brave enough to let go and have have a swim on her own.

Tomorrow I am off to London again to a video shoot, with a lovely client who has an album on in March, so the girls will be dropped off to nursery and then I'm driving down to the city.

Nip + Fab Review


Shortly before Christmas I was lucky enough to trial a new Gel with the aim of banishing cellulite! Hey I’ll try anything that promises me that. I have never been over weight and eat fairly sensible but I think down to genetics more than anything else I have always suffered with the dreaded orange peel look on my thighs and bum.

Its been a year now since I had Rock Baby and Its finally dawning on me that I actually have to get my butt in gear and get down to some serious exercise to shift the last few pounds and to really tone up and I will take any help I can along the way!

So I trialled NIP + FAB Cellulite Fix Body Sculpting Gel, it comes in a 150ml tube and is a fresh smelling gel that melts into your skin for targeted and fast action on your cellulite.

My skin felt lovely and smooth after using it and wasn’t sticky and did actually melt straight on, which when you have to get ready in super quick time in the mornings with two little ones hanging around your legs you need something that is going to dry very quickly.

It said on the tube to use twice daily, I managed it at least once a day first thing in the morning but found I had to use quite a lot, maybe because I have a huge bum?! So actually the tube only lasted for about 3 weeks but I did notice my skin felt smoother and tighter.

However as we all know you need to eat healthily, exercise, dry body bush and drink tons of water and when you combine these things whilst using the gel I’m sure that after time you would see the results. As Dulwich Mum put it so well on twitter this week when we were tweeting about tummy fix’s ‘if they had a gel to cure it then it would be on prescription!’

I would definitely buy the gel again and if you want to find out more you can visit or buy it at Boots. It retails at £17.95 for a 150ml tube.

Silent Sunday - A dog's Life

My first Silent Sunday Post....

It's a hard life...zzzzzzz!

Silent Sunday

Rock Baby's Birth Mark Has Almost Disappeared!

Rock Baby will be one tomorrow, unbelievable that the year has gone so fast in a blink of an eye. Its also been 5 months since she started treatment on her birthmark which as some of you may have read on previous posts it was a worrying decision for us to make, whether to go ahead and let her be part of a new drugs trial using the drug propronal.

However now we are very pleased we made the decision to go ahead and I wanted to post a picture of Rock Baby below when her mark was at its biggest and a picture taken just last week. The change is amazing.

The above picture was taken about 6 months ago

This Picture was taken on Christmas Day! We are all so happy it was definitely worth the worry :)
