Mission Possible – A Lingerie Treat for Valentine’s Day

So this might be a post you’re not expecting right now, as you’ll know I’m six months pregnant…so talking about sexy lingerie may not appear high on my agenda. BUT, John Lewis recently asked if the hubby would be up for trying out their useful shopping guide for buying lingerie and I was not going to turn down the opportunity for him to potentially be overwhelmed in the female underwear aisles…

However, the shopping guide may have been more useful than I had anticipated…Continue reading

Shrek The Musical – One of the Best Stage Musicals I’ve ever seen!

Last week, I had the pleasure of a #matedate with the lovely Fiona of Greedy Sisters, at the Palace Theatre in Manchester. We were off to see a show, that’s an adaptation of a film I absolutely love – Shrek The Musical.

It was nice to arrive to a mixed crowd of families, young-uns and singletons, so the atmosphere was already fantastic. I’d never been to the Palace Theatre in all the years I’ve lived in Manchester.

I’ve definitely got the “bug” and am thinking about another, but I’ve never jumped-into getting a tattoo, I’ve always waited until there’s something I can’t stop thinking about or something that really symbolises a time in my life. Although two have been pretty spontaneous, they are both small and represent a time, place and feeling that I wanted to lock in time…and I know I’ll never regret those. The other two took a lot more thought and designing and again, although my first tattoo isn’t something I’d necessarily choose now, I don’t regret it as I like the look of it and remember the reasons why I chose it (and I designed it myself, so know that no one else has the exact same thing on their body!). Continue reading
