My name’s Kate and I’m addicted…

… to sugar.

A good friend of mine spoke to me about this a while ago, as she was struggling to sleep and thought it may be linked to her sugar intake. It got me thinking about my own diet…but to be honest I have been too lazy to actually do anything about it!

My weakness is cereal.

I could quite happily devour 4 or 5 bowls a day. And there’s absolutely no way I could even think about going to bed at night without having my fix.

I’ve tried swapping to healthier cereals, such as Weetabix and porridge, but I just can’t resist covering them in sugar or mixing in a cheeky spoon of Nutella!

Do you think you could be addicted?

One of the warning signs is craving something sweet after you’ve had a meal. I definitely have this problem!

I do make an effort to plan healthy(ish) meals each week but this coming week I am going to make it my mission to avoid sugar and see what effect it has. Anyone care to join me?!

According to my research (on the ever so reliable Daily Mail website), I will experience withdrawal symptoms such as mood swings and headaches…

I’ll update you next week about how I got on!

Wish me luck!

Mother’s Day Gift Ideas 2017

Yes it’s that time of year again… Mother’s Day is just a couple of weeks away (26th March!).

Here are my top picks to keep you in the good books…

Pyjamas always go down well for me! This cute set is from Sainsbury’s and is just Β£12.

Bubble bath (and the gift of time to have one in peace!) is what dreams are made of! Treat her to a Lush bath bomb for only Β£2.95 each.

Lighting a candle whilst having a bath is definitely the ultimate luxury in my eyes. This gorgeous candle by Zoella is only Β£10 from Debenhams.

This cute sleepsuit from Next is bound to make mummy smile (especially if you offer to do all the nappy changes for the day!) and is only Β£7. You could get some lovely photos!

Speaking of photos, Photobox do these great personalised photo cushions which start at Β£30. A great way to brighten up the bedroom – whilst she’s waiting for her breakfast in bed to be delivered of course.

I also absolutely adore this solid copper Polaroid print from Not On The High Street, I can’t believe it’s only Β£19!

This strength bracelet by Stella & Dot seems very apt for Mother’s Day. Their jewellery always comes beautifully packaged and has a 90 day money back guarantee! Get this bracelet for Β£35.

Simply show her how much she is loved with a bunch of flowers. Bunches flowers can be ordered online and delivered straight to their door. I’ve used bunches before and their flowers last such a long time! This Marvellous Mum bouquet is Β£22.99 but prices start from just Β£14.99.

I hope this has given you some ideas! Thanks for reading!

I’ve filmed a video of what she got as I thought it may be useful as gift ideas/inspiration if you have any 1st birthdays coming up that you need to buy for!
