Blog Star

What a difference a year makes! 0

This time last year my personal blog was only five months old and I had just found out that I had won the Blog Star competition that Freya had run, so that I could write for this wonderful blog.

I remember feeling very nervous as to what would be expected of me and would I be good enough?

It was lovely to know that you guys had voted me in.

Since that time, the blog has moved forward more than I can ever have imagined. I started writing as a release from being a stay at home Mummy to three under two at the the time! My life was hectic and tiring but fun, however I missed that bit of me time. That reflective element and that challenge and sense of achievement you get from work. I never expected it to lead to freelance writing and more than that I never expected to start another blog called Science Sparks, that it would lead to setting up my own business (it is early stages mind you, and actually not making any money yet, but we live in hope!)

When I tell my friends what is happening, I am not sure they totally get it, and in fact I think they think I am slightly mad!

I kind of understand it. You see, I have gone into business partnership with another parent blogger. A person who I have now met lots of times, but actually met through twitter and via her own blog! It does sound strange. Lets face it, some people are still odd about internet dating, so internet business partnership is probably a little extreme!Her name is Emma and she is just lovely – I am so thankful to have met someone that is such a geek as me!

What a difference a year makes, Multiple Mummy

However in the nine months that we have written and produced Science Sparks - an online resource for parents so they can engage in science activities in the home, it has gone from strength to strength!

We are now up for two National awards from the MAD blog awards, for Most Innovative blog and Best Schooldays blog and My blog Multiple Mummy is up for Best Family Fun blog!

In addition to that my blog is a finalist for blogger of the year by Loved by parents! I am so amazed, I really cannot believe it.

I am so flattered that people enjoy what I write and like to read about my family life. I am inspired and motivated that people to to engage in science with their kids at home. It is all about the wow factor and is a subject we really need to encourage so we can progress and develop. I love that you enjoy my waffling on the Freya blog and I love being able to test out the range for you (obviously it is a tough job, but one I am prepared to put myself through it for you guys! )

If you wanted to spare us a vote for any of the awards I would be so grateful!

A Little Bit of Femininity with Elize

A Little Bit of Femininity with Elize 0

The English word feminine is derived from the Latin femina meaning “woman” or “female,” and literally “she who suckles! I find this amusing that this female word links to the idea of breasts and feeding and feel that again all of woman hood seems to be associated with the idea of boobs.

Maybe breast do define us as in a physical sense as a woman but I think think femininity  is more than that. It includes, behaviours and attribute associated with being female that can actually be seen in all sexes and genders. That could include a love for colours, materials, make-up, heels, romantic comedies – you name the female stero-type and it comes under the umbrella of femininity.

I am ridiculously feminine. I don’t shy away from hard graft, but if I can do it in heels, with my make-up on, then I will! And if I need overalls and my Wellies on, then I want to feel feminine underneath.

This can be done with the most stunning set of lingerie called Elize.

It is made from a beautifully feminine lilac satin material and is edged in sexy black lace. The bra itself is slightly padded to give that little bit of extra support and smooth shape.

The feminine Elize

The straps are also lilac and edged with black and the knickers come in a brief, shorts or thong variety!

It feels pretty and girly and yet had a sultry feel to it.

I just love it and I know you lovely ladies will too.

A spa retreat and Swing Lagoon swimwear!

A spa retreat and Swing Lagoon swimwear! 0

So it is my 30th birthday today! Happy birthday to me!

One of my early birthday presents was a fabulous spa day away with the girls.

The treatments included a facial (bliss) a full body massage (heavenly) and a pedicure (anything that makes my feet look slightly feminine is good!) and a delicious two course lunch!

The day before we are set go and what should pop through the post but the Swing Lagoon Bikini.

Swing lagoon underwired bikini and briefs, Freya, Fitting Talk

Absolutely delightful it is!

The padded top gives me some va va voom in the boob department and the band around the top of the brief is so very flattering to your waist line.

It has a floral design but in nautical colours and looks very classy. The bikini also comes with a matching dress that can fall off the shoulders for sun bathing purposes but will look so cute in the summer teamed with a pretty pair of flip flops! I can’t wait for the weather to warm up again so I can wear this!

The bikini saw me well through the Jacuzzi, sauna and steam room! It got lots of compliments and i have converted another two friends to the joys of Freya!

How I love a birthday! I wish I could turn 30 again now!

Hope you get some spoiling to soon – if not treat yourself to this bikini!
