Review: Strawberry Fields Cafe, Birchington 

With the weather playing around a lot recently, trying to find somewhere to meet up with friends and young children out and about is difficult. If it’s too windy, going to Ramsgate town is a definite no-no as the winds can sometimes be a nightmare right by the Harbour, and there’s always Westwood Cross for…

Dieting: The Milkshake Way 

Back in March I had a fab idea where I wanted to try one of those milkshake diets that a few celebs swear by, in a bid to start losing my baby weight. In Boots, the starter pack was on offer for £19.99 instead of £24.99 so I decided what the heck, I’ll give it…

Trying to shift the baby weight

They say you should eat 3 meals a day, eat 5 pieces of fruit and 5 pieces of veg a day, washed down with at least 2 litres of water a day. The thing is, realistically as a new mother that’s pretty far-fetched. When Emily turned 2 months old, my diet had got better, I…

I drink wine and formula feed, so what… 

There are so many people out there quick to judge others for whatever reason and it’s something I’ve noticed a lot being a new mum. Like the fact I don’t breastfeed anymore, the shock that I gave up so easily even though we both had thrush and it was painful and now that I don’t…

Non alcoholic Xmas drinks to get you into the festive spirit 

With Christmas, just around the corner, those new mum’s who’ve just given birth and are breastfeeding may be craving a cocktail, a glass of sherry, some baileys (like me!) or a glass of mulled wine but know that unfortunately they can’t consume any alcohol because of their baby. But no fear, there’s fortunately a few…

Review: Debenhams Cafe, Westwood Cross, Ramsgate 

Debenhams classes this place as a restaurant but to me it feels more like a cafe. A big open space, with floor to ceiling windows giving a full on view of Westwood Cross. I wouldn’t normally have visited this place but the other Friday whilst waiting for Emma, Costa coffee was packed. God knows why…

The best places to stop for a quick bite to eat in Kent

There are some great little places around Kent that offer some treasures when it comes to grabbing a bite to eat, or getting a hot drink whilst taking in the sites. Here are a few of my top places to go to. No doubt I’ll have more I need to add to this post at…

On the boob or off it, how will you be feeding your baby? 

I really want to breastfeed, it’s something that I’ve discussed with Sam from the beginning. I really do want to breastfeed but know that if she doesn’t take to it, that I shouldn’t feel disheartened, that it’s not the end of the world but it’s something that I really would like to do. I have…
