Pssst, my 5 makeup products that make me look Human again!

Let's be honest once you become a mum does anyone have time to put on makeup. But sometimes I have to because I don't fancy rocking up to work make up free and giving everyone the fright of their lives.

Of a morning we are on a pretty tight schedule so i keep my make up to a bare minimum so i atleast look half decent. My 5 must have products are,

Yves Saint Laurent Shocking Mascara 7.5ml £25.00 Debenhams Deep Black

My Weight Journey

Before I had my little girl I probably weighed around 9 stone 10, 18 months on I now weigh 11 stone and I am struggling to lose the weight. I thought once I had had Heidi the weight would drop off, but no. I see other people who have had baby’s and they are back in there skinny jeans a few months later, why aren’t I, I  would ask myself.

What will Toddler Bedroom tours be like in the next 50 years?

I always love having a nosey around peoples houses to see how they have decorated, I also love watching YouTube bedroom tours. This made me think to do a little tour of Heidi's bedroom.

As soon as I found I was having a girl at my 20 week scan my first thought was get the paint brushes out! I had always dreamt of having a little girl and them having the girliest, pinkish bedroom I could do.

Also there is a little theme were her name just seems to be everywhere haha. I think I did this because I could never find anything with my name on when I was small so if I find anything Heidi related I buy it.

Bought from a Facebook page

Christening Present
Here is a little video of what her room looks like.


If you want to know were anything is from just ask and ill be happy to share. I would also love to see your bedroom tours.

30 Day Blogging Challenge: Day 6

Something you're proud of in the past few days

The thing I am most proud of in the last few days is getting Heidi to eat a sandwich. Now this probably doesn't seem like something to be proud of but I am, and if you are a parent you will probably understand.

30 Day Blogging Challenge: Day 5

Favourite superhero and why

I have never really been one for watching marvel cartoons, even as a child, so I can't really say I have a favourite.

That was until I watched the last Batman trilogy. Since then I have become the biggest batman fan. He has the cars, the suit and he's always been played by a good looking actor. What more could you want?

30 Day Blogging Challenge: Day 4

A Picture of somewhere you've been

I have been to Canada 4 times, well only 3 I can remember because the first time I was a baby and cant remember. My mums brother lives over there and its such a nice place to visit.

The second or third time if you count the very first time I went, in 2009 we went to Niagara Falls. One word that sums this up is Amazing.

Spa Trip to Crew Hall

I have never been on a spa break before but have had a few massages in the past. I have always hated going for a massage and then having to travel back home and once home not having the time to relax and enjoy the full benefits of a massage. As a mum once you get home there's always something to do whether it's making tea, washing dishes or cleaning. Having a full relaxing day with someone to cook my meals and not lift a finger was just what I needed. I decided to go ahead and book an overnight spa break for me and my mum at Crewe Hall Spa.

A Habit you wish you didn't have

A habit I really wish I didn't have is not being confident in myself.

I don't know if a lot of people have the same issue as me, but I'm always thinking I'm not good enough for this or that.

30 Day Blogging Challenge: Day 2

The Meaning behind your blog name

This is something that look me a while to think up. You need something that people will remember and also what relates to your blog.

I knew I wanted my blog to focus on being a mum, so I had to get mummy in there somewhere. Then I just thought diaries because it was going to be my diary of being mummy. So The Mummy Diaries was born.

Transition to toddler bed

When is the right time the change from cot to toddler bed?

With Heidi being my first child I have felt like I have wanted to do everything quick. For example as soon as you turned 4 months I thought baby rice. Then solids came along and I wanted to try her on that. Because everything is new to me I just want her to try things and hope Im doing the best I can.

Pregnancy story of my daughter Heidi

I thought I would share the story of my daughter from when we found out up until her birth. I love the idea of doing this, because when Heidi is old enough she can look back and read this.

I will give you a bit of background…

I have always wanted children as far back as I can remember – a little girl called Heidi and before I hit 30, but never really met the right person to start my family with. I have had past relationships but in the back of my mind I think I always knew they weren’t right. Then in February 2012 I met the man I knew I wanted to start my family with.  By July 2013 we had bought our own house and were happy as a couple. But something was missing; we wanted an extra little person in our lives.
