Win this pin!
Sorry, this competition has now closed.
Ahead of Mother’s Day, I’ve teamed up with Do It Like A Mother to give away one of these lovely enamel pins with rose gold plating on white background.
Ten per cent of the profits from sales of this inspiring £6 pin (which I totally need in my life!) go to PANDAS UK, supporting families through perinatal mental health issues.
Do It Like A Mother empowers couples for positive birth via hypnobirthing that makes total sense, in Southend and Upminster. So if you’re expecting, you need to check them out!
For your chance to win this pin, simply share this post on Facebook or Twitter or Instagram and tag yourself – or another a mama that inspires you. Continue reading
One to be won! A lucky mama will win this Muri candle
It’s no secret that I’m a big fan of Muri candles (read my recent rave about them here!)
And let’s face it, what mama doesn’t want a cute candle like this in her life? It’s a soy wax candle. In an enamel camping mug. I mean, seriously. What’s not to love? Plus it burns for aaaaaages and it smells deeelicious.
So, to celebrate my first Mother’s Day as a mummy, I’m giving one away to a lucky reader of What Katy Did. Continue reading
I don’t know about you, but what with having had a baby recently vacate my being – and then deprive me of quite a lot of sleep – I’ve found working out hasn’t *exactly* been top of my to do list.
By that, I mean I have yet (Sonny Jim is now 9 months old) to actually get to the gym.
In fairness, I wasn’t a real gym bod before. Yoga once or twice a week, was about as far as things went for me.
But this (almost a year long. Shh) malaise cannot continue.
I’ve teamed up with OnlineGym4me and tried their New Mommy, Fit Body Online Workout Program. Which can be done at home. In 15 minutes. Continue reading
When I was four years old, before I went to bed every night, I demanded my dad check the smoke alarm at the top of the stairs was working.
Thanks to this advert, I was petrified of a fire burning down my home while I slept.
TV adverts were a whole lot scarier in the Eighties. But it did its job. We most certainly had a working smoke alarm throughout my entire childhood and beyond.
And with Christmas now SO CLOSE, the scary truth is that people are 50 per cent more likely to die in a house fire over Christmas than at any other time of year. It’s not difficult to see why. Candles? Check. Roaring fires? Check. Fairy lights. Check. Lots of booze? Check.
Which is why you NEED TO CHECK YOUR SMOKE ALARM IS WORKING. And if you don’t have one, get one, for pity’s sake.
This leads me seamlessly into a service which, if you live in Essex, you would be totally mad not to take advantage of.
