    Shuffle Songs Tag

    I was tagged by the lovely Ruth of┬áRuth In Revolt to join in with the Shuffle Songs Tag. I love posts like this where you find out something slightly random about different bloggers. Music is a massive part of my life and there is always something playing in our house so this is probably my favourite tag so far! I put my Spotify favourites on shuffle and this is the first 10 songs it played: Jumpin’ Jumpin’ – Destiny’s Child Wow, takes me back to school! I’m a massive old school Destiny’s Child fan but I can’t stand Beyonce’s current “music” (I use the term loosely). Nine In The Afternoon…

    An Open Letter To The Girl On The Bench

    You could only have been 19. Sat outside the shops on the bench next to me, pouring your heart out to who I can only presume is your Dad. Saying he doesn’t care but it’s clear that he does; he’s there and he’s listening, letting your snarky remarks bounce off him like rain. By the sounds of it, you’re blinded by love.

    April Glossybox Review

    I really do love receiving my Glossybox each month, you get such a variation of products to try and some of them you wouldn’t pick up yourself in store. This month was very much a makeup filled box which I always manage to use pretty quickly so it hasn’t taken long for me to review the items really.

Tonight, I finally managed to cook it again and I forgot how good it is for a simple, 1 pan dish. It’s a great way of using up wrinkly veg too as you can chuck whatever you fancy in it. You can also make it vegetarian, which I have done many times before, by simply removing the chicken.

    April Glossybox Reveal

    I’ve been getting Glossyboxes for a whole year! It’s my blog’s birthday this month and one of the first posts I done was a Glossybox review: https://afterbabyblog.wordpress.com/2017/04/24/my-first-glossybox/ I’ve loved getting these boxes and I’ve tried so many products that I would have never picked up myself! This month I had my first ever repeat though which is disappointing though.
