Scandal

Yeah.. I'm Late.. La La La

Anyway..

1 afternoon whilst Jayden was sleeping, and I was bored, I went of Sky Demand and decided to find out what all the bother about Scandal was about.
Well...
About 5 Days On and Off (Could have been 2, but I had baby duties as a mama), and 2 seasons later, I am patiently waiting for season 3 to start at the end of July.

I heard how great it was all over Instagram and Facebook, but I had plenty of other things to do.
But now 1 year in, I'm in control.. (well kind of), so I can now watch Scandal with the corner of my eyes and play Lego with Jayden at the same time. Then get really into it when he's sleeping.

The reason I mention this is because when I was in my last few weeks of pregnancy all I wanted to do was eat, sleep and watch TV. Trying to find something to past the time until the baby arrives, Scandal is a good series to get into, it took me a few episodes to get into it, but after about 3 I was hooked.

I won't say to much about it, but it's about Olivia Pope, a former media consultant to the president. And all the Secrets and Scandals around the White House really, I'll let you find out the rest.

So if you are like me, and like to bulk watch series, or netflix series or just late like me, catch up on season 1 and 2 of Scandal.

Sky Demand, and I think Netflix too.

Enjoy

1st Birthday !

Yesterday on the 6th July my little boy turned 1 !

Oh My Gosh !.. I have a 1 year old son .. its CRAZY !

Both me and my partner decided we wouldn't have a big thing for his birthday, so we decided to have a little party, with close friends and family coming round for some food, drinks and cake.

Jayden loved the day so much, i'm pretty sure he knew it was his birthday from the get go ( probably me waking up singing happy birthday and giving his double kisses could have helped).
He got loads of cards, more that I ever get for a birthday, and more presents than any boy needs.

Mega-Blocks are a fun gift not only for my boy but also his mummy and daddy are enjoying playing with them too (secretly of course).

I cannot actually believe a year has gone by so fast. I also heard people say ' time flies', but you never actually realise until the time passes you by in a flash. This past year has been the best year of my life, I've enjoyed every minute of being a mum, (including the messy nappies), watching him grow and learn new things everyday is so exciting. From learning to crawl to toddling about on the side of sofa's to properly walking about alone, its the cutest thing.
The love for a child is unconditional and unexplainable, its love at first sight, loving someone before you have met them, then meeting them for the first time when you lay your hand on them, you fall in love all over again.

Everyday I wake up, good day or bad, I also have a smile on my face when I see a little person looking back at me smiling.

1 year's old.. 1 whole year has gone past,I can't get over it.

 I cannot wait for all the new things he will be doing within the next year, and the many more years to come.

July

July is a busy month for me at the moment, I have Jayden's first birthday in a few days, so I'm doing crazy organisation for a little party for him, then after that I have my graduation to look foreward to aswell.

I will be uploading within the next week or so, tutorials of little things I did for Jayden birthday, I.e present shopping ideas form1st birthdays, the invites (which everyone loved!) , and food ideas etc.

I actually can't believe I'm organising my son's first birthday, the time has really flown by !

I'll also do a few post about nice outfits for graduating mummy's (or non mummy's).. Because I know the struggle of finding a nice dress that looks nice, and covers up all the right places, and shows off the post-baby body.

Kim and Kanye Kausing Khaos

See what I did there with the K's 

Any who back to the point of the post.

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have had their daughter North's ears pierced at the age of 1.

Now every parent has the choice to do what they want in regards to their own child's ears but me personally I wouldn't have it done.

Firstly because a child at that age, what are they gaining from getting their ears pierced. Poking a needle in my child's arm for an injection is bad enough, and that's needed for a medical reason, for a piece of jewellery , no thanks.
It may look pretty, but is it really worth it.

You have to think about the child, at that age they could get an infection from the piercing and cause severe damage, or be allergic to the jewellery which would be causing pain to a child for no reason.

When I was a young, I'm pretty sure those stick on earring were the coolest thing about. I didn't get my ears pierced till about 12, and I even had them repierced because they got infected. Now I have had over 11 piercing in my time, half taken out by now, and I have had them done down to it being my own choice that I wanted them done, not because anyone else has forced me to them.

At the age of 1 or below you can't say no, it the parents decision. 
I wouldn't personally have my sons ears pierced at a young age, he has no need for a fashion statement at that age, and if and when he is older (I'm talking 11+) he decides he wants it done, then we can discuss it and maybe get it done but I will cross that bridge when I come to it.

Kim and Kanye have had a lot of backlash from doing this, I'm sure they have their reasons as to why they have decided to do it, and it's each to their own. North is cute enough she doesn't need added 'bling' in her ears.



That's my view on this.

Day One of the Squat Challenge

First off, I was meant to start yesterday after blogging but I completely forgot.
Then I woke up the next day like 'yeah I'm gunna do these squats'.. After about 10minutes I had a million other things to do that came first so didn't have time.

Not at 10pm, Jayden is asleep in bed I thought, hey this is a good time to do some squats.
So after yesterday blogging on squats I researched how to do them properly and all the correct posture for the back for squats, as I suffer back pain from my epidural still (I'll save that one for another post another time), I wanted to get it correct and not cause anymore unneeded injury.

So I did my 50 squats, and after the first 20 I heard all sorts of clicking sounds from bones I'm pretty sure weren't meant to click. 30 down and I was thinking how am I gunna finish this challenge and actually reach the goal in 30days, then I lost count from all the thinking, so went back to 30 and carried on.
Ended up doing 50 (if not more) squats, and now I'm ready for tomorrow evenings set.

I won't blog every night after a squat, but I will keep you posted

30 Day Squat Challenge

I love a challenge, and as my graduation is coming up (hip hip horaay!) I want a fab body for a fab dress.

I had a big'ish bum anyway since i'm half african, but why not shape and tone it up a bit.

I've heard so much about the '30 day squat challenge', and how great it is, so I've decided to give it a try, and use my graduation as an incentive to actually stick with it.

It's basically starting with 50 squats on day 1, then working up by 5 each day for 30 days, and taking rest days in between every 4 days or so.

I shall be documenting the beginning, middle and end, to see if it actually works to start with, and any improvements if it does.

Here's the challenge below, do you accept it aswell ?


SALE !

As a shopaholic for baby clothes, I love the word SALE !

Incase you didn't know, mamas and papa's have got a sale on with up to 50% off, then an added 10% extra off on nursery furniture collections.
This is what I have seen from the website.

Clarks also have a sale, in-store and online with various baby shoes available.
I popped into Clarks in Stratford Westfield yesterday and they had a few shoes in sale.
With shoes I also suggest getting your babies feet measured first before buying a pair, because little feet grow constantly.
The shop assistant also said to me that she suggests that you get your babies feet sized every 4-6 weeks.
So just pop in and get them sized if anything, you don't always have to buy just cause they are measuring their feet.

As usual Mothercare have lots of sales, from price match prams to clothes to toys.
So have a look incase anything that catches your fancy is on sale too !


 Go and enjoy the sale mama's !
