With work, family lives, chores...adulting can be hard, hard work.
This morning I was trying to get through the Sunday morning tidying when I found myself wandering in the kitchen to do *something* but it took me a good minute or two racking of my mind to remember what I was there for! Can you relate to this?
Or how about asking someone for something but the exact word doesn't pop up until 30 seconds later.
We blame this on our mummy brains. But in reality it is our minds that need decluttering! I wish there were compartments or storage boxes where chores and memories could be stored and taken out appropriately when needed.
I am starting,THE MINDFULNESS WEEK challenge to try and declutter my mind and also learn to relax and calm myself better.
Mindfulness has been shown by research to improve memory, creativity and reaction times.
As a GP and primary care consultant, I see so many patients trapped in a whirlwind of anxiety and for some of them mindfulness has worked wonders!
BUT it seems quite intangible an exercise at times.So I thought let's do it together for a week and see how it improves our mental wellbeing in general.
If you are in please drop a comment below!
#Day1: we start off with the breathing exercise. This is tried and tested and helped me get through countless exams and OSCEs/interviews etc.
You can do this at work or wherever you are at the time. You just need to switch off from the surroundings and focus on breathing. Try the above for 3-4 times today and feel your mind relax. Comment on how it makes you feel
Please tag your friends. Let's declutter our minds together.
SCENT OF THE DAY GUCCI FLORA 🍂
Top note is citrus fruit, mandarin and peony. I just love peony notes!
Fun fact , my brother bought this perfume for my mum when it first released and as a young teen I instantly fell in love with it, I'd secretly spray my mums here and there until I bought my own 😂. A perfume I've bought countless of times since then and I'd probably keep buying.
Has any skin care fanatics tried Sunday Riley good genes? Is it worth the splurge do you think ? I'm still unsure about this one💁🏽
Nothing compares to the stomach ache you get from laughing with your best friends! ✨
Throwback to before Christmas when I could eat and talk without it being sore. Day 5 of having 2 less wisdom teeth and it feels like it’s never going to end. Pass me the gin 🍹

Funny story: so last summer I had an amazing experience of getting VIP press passes for @victoriousfestival and got to have a super fun time with my friend @charisw94 and we goofed around in the @cocacola photo booths. I’ve been looking for the photo for months and it’s been on my to do list to find it and post it on Instagram. I managed to find it yesterday in a finished notebook. So here it is kids ✌🏻 #onlysixmonthslate#betterlatethannever

All the snogs and squished noses with my baby boy. 💋 Such a special moment last night that I honestly will never forget, he was in such a funny mood probably due to the lack of sleep! I was trying to get a selfie with Rudi and I said can I have a kiss which I say regularly and I occasionally get one but not often, he then gave me the biggest longest kiss on my lips which turned into a face grab and almost biting a chunk out of my chin with those very sharp teeth! We both laughed so much he found it so funny and I was just soaking up his kisses and giggles it was hilarious! I loved my kisses and the teeth marks are totally worth it! ❤️
Say hi to c firma. An absolute cult favourite, buzzing with all the hype. But does it deserve its status... The Promises:
💛 C firma promise to give you that bright, tight, even and glowy complexion which, let's be real, is what we most definitely want from our *rather pricey* skincare.
🧡15% pure L-ascorbic acid (vitamin c's more potent identical twin)
✨0.5% Ferulic Acid (Antioxidant which helps boost and enhance the stability and the benefits of vitamins C and E)
💛 1% Vitamin E (perfect for UV protection and helps protect your skin from damage caused by free radicals!!)
🍍Pumpkin ferment and Pomegranate extract: work together to enzymatically dissolve dead surface skin cells, minimizing the appearance of pores and smoothing texture.
🍯 Licorice Root Extract: helps to brighten and promote more even looking skin tone.
Truthfully--at first I HATED c firma. Wth was this stuff. I found it impossible to incorporate into my skincare because of how sticky I found it. Now I genuinely do not know if the formula became less sticky over time or if I got used to it but at first I hateeeed the stuff. I played around with it and found out it applies best for my skin mixed with soemthing (b-hydra. 😍🤤🤤) This serum really sinks into the skin but leaves a non tacky film of glow. It has a beautiful colour and spreads over the skin easily- I do find it sticky if I use it by itself but the stickiness settles after about 30 seconds.
I also find that my dry skin enjoys the hydration that this baby provides 🧡
After 2 months of using this I've noticed some NIIICE results. My skin is brighter and overall glowier (even when I'm not wearing an elaborate routine of skincare!) My skin tone is slightly more even but what I really noticed about this serum is how good it is at fading scars.
I had a new scars on my neck due to a necklace allergy I had a while ago which left my next with lots of red scars--since Ive been brining c-firma down to my neck literally ALL my scars have faded!! I love it.
Overall the product is an 8.5/10 for me. I genuinely enjoy using it ever morning 🤗
What did you guys think of C-firma?
Success doesn't come on a silver platter, it comes with a lot of hard work, tears, blood and Sweat.
The key to succeed is in not giving up when you ate faced with hardship.

Saturday has finally arrived, the house is clean and tidy, so now it’s time to chill and pamper myself and make myself feel human again with a nice relaxing bath with my favourite candle ever from @love_lilyflame hope your all enjoying your Saturday 🛁
Only a few more days left of our holiday so you’ll be pleased to not get anymore holiday spam! 😂 I am looking forward to coming home and I might sound crazy but I can’t wait to do some washing, although I’m sure I’ll be moaning about it again soon enough! Rudi seems to get so dirty so quickly lately especially since he’s been walking around so much more and eating so much food! I can’t wait to see Nero and all my family but I can’t say I’m looking forward to the cold weather and not having Daddy full time once he goes back to work. It’s amazing how quickly you get used to quality time together and full time shared parenting! ❤️
Currently lying in bed feeling sorry for myself with a minor cold. I would much rather be spending the time productively job searching and prepping scripts I want to write.
Let me know if you have any writing tips 👍🏻
I can't believe last year this time we were exploring the streets of Barcelona 🌸 One of my favourite cities I have visited. This picture popped up on my memories so I had to share 🌹

Currently feeling like everything in my life needs a Make Over ... I started adding some new decorations to our home, making my wardrobe more neutral/basic and obviously my IG is about to get a little make over too 😅
How do you like these tones friends ?

There’s nothing quite as cosy as a chunky knit to keep you warm and snuggly during the cold days ... Winter is not going anywhere anytime soon so we better embrace it and look stylish while doing so 💁🏻♀️
Our Coco Cardigan going strong this season, available for pre order at @chunkymishka 💕

So many smiles from this one! He’s definitely our little boy and loves his holidays just like Mummy and Daddy. I’m not sure if it’s the weather or that there is so many people around! He literally can’t stop chatting and smiling to anyone that walks past and if they don’t look at them he’ll let them know until they do. 😂 Holidays are so different with a little one, we used to be very lazy getting up for a drink was a chore and you just don’t have time for that when your a mum and dad and in all honesty you don’t want to except for when it’s nap time, we live for naps! Even if Jamie takes him off for a swim I know I should chill for a bit which I do and then I go and join them or have a little nose at what they are up to. 💙

It was super cold today, so nothing better than heading to London's famous outdoor igloos at @coppaclub. ❄❄❄
