DIY BATH BOMBS

DIY Bath Bombs

This weekend we went to the zoo. The day was so much fun! The Zoo was really quiet because the weather was a little iffy, I guess no one wanted to chance it or leave the house on a yuck day (which turned out to be a really nice day). I find it is way busier when I go during the week! Siena is at an age now where she enjoys seeing all the animals, I would even say probably more than Noah! So she got really excited, especially when we saw the penguins and the hippos, whom I have never seen in so much action! At the end we thought we would treat the kids to a little toy or something from the gift store (it’s really me, because I’m a sucker for a gift shop!) We found some little fizzy eggs that you can put in the bath or a bucket of water and they have a little toy animal in them. I thought they were a cute little idea. They didn’t have any scent or benefit to them but the kids love the bath bombs from Lush so we knew it would be a hit, of which they were. […]

THE MOST PERFECT CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES

The most Perfect Chocolate Chip Cookie 2

I have held a recipe for what I think is the most perfect chocolate chip cookies. If I ever make cookies I make this particular recipe. Sometimes I will try something different, but I never stray from this recipe when I make chocolate chip. Never. I have had this recipe for years. So I honestly cannot remember where exactly I got it from. Admittedly, I cannot take full credit for this recipe. However I also cannot pin point whose it is. The other day I was feeling like something sweet and I thought why not treat the kids and myself to something, I mean, It was only just easter and all so why not make cookies. Yes, I am being sarcastic. I have used this recipe to make ice cream sandwiches before, which were delicious! This particular batch didn’t make it past a few hours! The original recipe calls for 1/2 a cup each of the sugars but I have changed it to 1/3 and it is sweet enough. I plan on making a healthier version in the future, so stay tuned for that! I am telling you, they are the most perfect chocolate chip cookie. They aren’t soft or […]

EASTER LONG WEEKEND 2017

EASTER LONG WEEKEND 2017

Thank god for long weekends! 😉 This weekend was an exciting one. Mostly because the easter bunny came and me and the kids ate heaps of chocolate. Probably too much, I actually feel sick…The weather was undecided, it was rainy, snowy and sunny over the 3 days. I know I talk about the weather a lot, but I really need spring to ‘spring’ already! Friday was a lazy day. We played at the park and went for a walk to the cafe for a much needed coffee.         On Saturday Joe and I got away and were child free! It was amazing. I love those monsters but god it’s nice to eat in a restaurant without having to chase down an over excited 3 year old who is always closely followed by his little sister who just wants to do what he’s doing. Its exhausting. As most parents would know. So we actually got to eat in peace and didn’t have to inhale our food. But the best part, we went car shopping! We are upgrading my crossover for a bigger SUV. I seriously cannot wait! Even though we spent most of the day at the dealership it […]

15 FACTS ABOUT ME!

15 FACTS ABOUT ME

I want YOU to get to know me! Some of my readers are new to my corner, others have known me for some time but there maybe a thing or two you don’t know about me yet! It was actually kind of hard to write this list, turns out I don’t really have that many interesting facts about myself! But here goes!   15 Facts about me! I was vegetarian for 7 years. One day in year 9 I decided to go vegetarian and stopped eating meat from then on. Much to my mothers dismay of having to make a separate meal for me each meal (because she’s the best, whose mum wants to make separate meals for everyone?!) I lived in London for 12 months when I was 21, almost to the day. After that I did not want to live anywhere else in the world. Yet here I am, living in Canada for the past 6 years 😉 I met my love/baby daddy/future husband (?) on Contiki and we barely said two words to each other the entire time! I am the youngest of 3. I have an older brother and older sister. When I was young, like […]

PHOTOS FROM THE WEEKEND

Photos from the weekend

This past weekend was an ordinary one. We started off as normal with swimming lessons but they were unfortunately cut short by someones bodily functions. Always someone who has to ruin it 😛 I am not exactly sure on what it was but I think it’s best we keep it that way! The kids both have minor colds that they can’t seem to shake! This weather is driving me nuts, is it warm, is it cold, rain, snow? Pick one! So both kids were up all night on Saturday, Noah coughing and Siena irritable for some reason. I have not had that little amount of sleep in a long time. Siena would not sleep without being on me or next to me. It was a night of musical beds. Joe and Noah in our bed, Siena and me in Noah’s bed. All the coffee couldn’t keep me awake. Poor kids, poor us 😉 We tried to go to the nursery to get some ideas on what we can do in our backyard but the kid’s weren’t having it. We left with two very tired, very cranky, very loud crying toddlers. Oh the joys of parenthood! The highlight was definitely getting […]
