Raising A Manipulative Genius

Sometimes I look at my Son and I’m amazed at how intelligent he is.  I’m comparing him of course to how he was as a baby, which if we’re being honest is pretty useless!  Babies are (sometimes) cute but definitely not the most intelligent creatures to grace this planet. So when I say he’s smart…

The Secret To Anti Ageing

While there are many beauty blogs in the blogosphere, there aren’t many that are dedicated to us older lot.  It’s one thing getting amazing reviews and recommendations from an early 20 something beauty blogger, but as we age our facial needs change.  Add becoming a Mother onto that list and suddenly looking in the mirror…

Nutmeg: Spring/Summer 2015 Collection

Let me take you down memory lane. Go back to when you were little, and you’re walking barefoot on a seaside pier… The well trodden wooden boards hard but warm against your feet.

Being Thrifty with Household Shopping

Buying a house, doing renovation work and then Christmas on top has meant we’re living pretty close to the bread line at the moment.  Especially as Mr London Mum is soon going to be dipping his toe into the freelance world, so the security of a monthly pay pack will be disappearing.  This has meant…

January Round Up

It’s the end of January *woop woop.* I won’t lie, with every passing month the thought of Spring and Summer creeping towards us is exciting me.  I hate being like that though because it’s almost like I’m wishing time away, but what I wouldn’t give for a February heat wave The weather has been bitingly…

January Beauty Edit

One of my great passions in life is the world of beauty.  Anything beauty and make up related I adore, it’s one of the reasons I qualified as a beauty therapist and furthered my love of make up by learning from the great artists at AOFM.  Being a Mum has put my love of all…
