About Me

Hello and welcome to my, All about me page. Can you believe my blog is nearly 6 years old?

My babies were small when I first started blogging now all but 1 are taller than me. I have loved every minute of writing my blog and I hope to enjoy the next 5 years just a much.

2017 is going to be pack full of fashion, food fitness and family posts. I hope you will stop by and have a read?

I'm a 44-year-oldd married mum of 4 fab kids who Love's to run and if I work hard enough maybe one day I will be good at it!?!

2015 was a great year for me and my blog. The highlight for me was going to Marisota's head office in Manchester for the day to take part in a photo shoot. I was so nervous as I had never done anything like this before but I loved every minute of it...

My 4 children. This picture is a few years old now. It is so much hard work getting a picture of everyone together nowadays....

 It was so excited to have been featured in April 2013 edition of Red Magazine.


  1. Really enjoyed reading about your life and projects. Very nice photos, and especially like the shot of you running down a hill with the photo of you in the background.

  2. Hello Justine! I came across your blog and thought it would be perfect for a promotion we are running in connection with Halloween. We are giving away a selection of cosmetic contact lenses to bloggers so that you can have a play around with them, perhaps try them with different outfits and review them on your blog.

    The lenses are simple non-prescription coloured contacts and opaque, for a bit of fun and to get the word out there how they go with different outfits.

    Let me know if this is something you would be interested in, your preference (if any), address details and I will get the selection sent out to you. Kind regards, Kristina

    1. Thank you for your kind offer,sorry I have only just found this comment ...

  3. I admire how lovely you dress, bake - especially with four children. I aspire to one day get my life back once my children are older, tell me it happens?

  4. Hi Claire! First of all, congrats for your great blog!
