Having some Me Time and My Personal Well-Being

Being a mum to a toddler, renovating our family home and running my own business certainly keeps me busy! I love it, but I’m constantly up to my eye-balls and constantly putting something or someone else before myself. A work-life balance has always been extremely important to me and I preach this to others, but sometimes need to remember to listen to my own advice.

Having some time to focus on yourself and your mental and physical well-being, is so important. You just won’t be motivated, proactive or even functional, if you don’t look after yourself….so everything suffers in the long run.

Shopping for the hubby

Every now and then, I feel that the hard-working hubby of mine deserves a treat…a present. But for the man who has everything, I never really know what to get him. So we often turn to shopping for clothes and it got me to thinking, it’s coming up to Autumn now and perhaps he could do with a wardrobe refresh (I can say this as I know he’ll never read this post!).

So when the guys at Jacamo asked me to have a look at their new season collection, I thought I’d pull together a few of my favourite bits for fellas…as we can’t forget about them can we? Jacamo is a brand I’ve certainly heard of and have seen the adverts for, but not one I’ve personally shopped at before, so I was intrigued to see what they offered and the price-points…
