Is It Only Me...Trouser Waistbands

My two boys are aged six and seven years old, and I have lots of difficulty finding trousers with adjustable waistbands - Most trousers from high street stores do not have adjustable waists with the exception to some High Street Stores - Next have a small range of trousers with adjustable waist then there's Sainsburys TU brand - I find these offer the best range but they sell out very fast, places like Primark only offer adjustable waist bands for 7-8 yrs but once you go into 8-9 age range forget it theres nothing available.
As we head into the new school term I always find myself on the hunt for suitable trousers.
Left- Blue Jeans by Next / Centre - Primark with belt no adjustable waistband / Right my favorite when it come to adjustable waist band -  Sainsburys TU range
Both my boys are getting taller and my seven almost eight yr old needs 8-9yrs,they both have slender waist bands and the standard sizes are just too big!!!! I dont want to spend a fortune on clothes my kids are going to wear to school (their school has a no uniform policy) I mainly shop online and catalogues such as Very also have a limited range.....How frustrating is it only me who has this problem.....!!!!

V&A Museum of Childhood

The V&A Museum of Childhood is located in London's Bethnal Green and has a great collection of childhood related objects and artefacts, spanning the 1600s to the present day.

The collection includes toys - including dolls, dolls' houses, puppets and teddy bears - games, childcare, clothing, furniture and art and photography, and displays, a wide variety of activities. Great fun for all the family. They also run temporary exhibitions and we was lucky enough to see called Beautiful Games which is on until the 9th September the exhibition looking at the sport behind science, featuring over 70 examples of cutting edge sports equipment and historic memorabilia.

Review
It was a fun day out - although I had taken the boys there a couple of years ago they really enjoyed looking at the toys and interacting with the activities and exhibitions on offer.
A great day out and it was free to get in. I had a nice time reminiscing at the toys I once had owned.
We will defiantly visit again in the near future.

Busy Mums



All mums work hard, from everyday chores to cooking,cleaning the house,paying bills and handling finances and shopping,helping kids with homework, spending time with husband/partner/family the list is endless and on top of that most of us busy mums also hold down full or part time jobs...you know when your on the go none stop because you can't remember the last time you felt bored.....wow what I wouldn't do for a spot of boredom.....no wonder we're tired.
So here are a few tips do keep ourselves focused and on schedule.

1 - Be prepared- keep a running to do list/diary this will help you stay on top of our every changing routine, that way you can prioritise you day and complete the most pressing tasks first eg that bill if must be paid today !!!

2 - The night before - set out clothes, socks, shoes ok might sound crazy but how many times have you hunted for that sock thats disappeared in the draw, have book bags home work ready to go!!! so there's no rushing around in the morning hunting for the book bag, ensure packed lunches are ready the night before,also get your bag ready. if you are calm and relaxed your children will be too,children feed off our emotions.

3 - Wake up- get yourself up at least an hour before the kids to that way you can have your breakfast and pace yourself as you get ready for work, trust be it helps. Your also feel less stressed and will be able to focus your attention on the kids.

4 - Meal plan - plan your meals - by planing what your going to eat each day will help with your weekly shop, write down what your going to have each day so you can pre-cook or store food in fridge/freezer. More meal planning idea blogs coming soon.

5- Negotiate- Discuss how you can share your load with your partner/husband and share some of the        household chores and childcare duties we all can do with a helping hand.

6 - Routine - Keep and maintain a good routine for your children eg homework times and bedtime routines not only will it help you but your children also benefit from regular routines.

7 - Family Time - plan enjoyable family activities eg once a month or weekly, these can be as simple as going to the park.

8 - Communication - A happy home is one that communicates, ensure you keep good communication between yourself husband/partner and the children in the family.Children are smart young adults share family life with them.

9 - ME Time - make sure you allow some time for yourself - if you have established a good routine for your children  then at the end of each evening set aside some time to relax and put your feet up.

10 - Enjoy family life - As hectic as it is most of us wouldn't change it for the world, Enjoy and make the most of each crazy day, A good  example I always try to recall "whilst in the throws of housework I sat down to catch my breath" and one of my sons just came over and plonked down on my lap, Just before I moved him along I stopped and caught myself "How many more years will he do this" These moments might never come back" I sat and I embraced him thinking "The washing can wait" Enjoy those precious moments, Great memories are what we all cherish and look back on. Those moments wont last forever but the housework will always be there.



Cleansing Wipes

My old skin care regime
Well I'm a bit old Skool and once I find a beauty product that I like I tend to stick with it...... Not always the right thing to do...
I usually use Johnson baby lotion cleansing cream but most of the time I would use clean and clear to remove my make up each day. Which of course you need cotton wool pads.
But on my recent trip to sainsburys to gather my cleaning regime supplies there wasn't a cotton wool pad in sight.. None empty shelf's!!!....So I purchased Kleenex cleanings wipe instead £2.99 BOGOF what a bargain, I was amazed with the results they removed all traces of my make up, although I did wonder if I would continue to purchase once at full price for one pack. Since then I have tried several bands and here are my thoughts.

Kleenex £2.99 - thick and well moistured removed all make up left face feeling clean.

Primark £1.00 for two pks - thin wipes need more then one to do the job, great alternative if on a budget , does the job but I found them a little harsh on my skin.

Nivea - cleansing wipes £2.90 - this by far are my favorite lovely and thick and full of moisture very gentle on my sensitive skin, they also come in fragrance free,refresh and gentle.
Nivea cleansing wipes are now part of my facial cleansing regime.Also after a hard day on the go it was so much quicker to use.
Which cleaning wipes have you used and find work the best ?
Comments welcomed
Removed all traces on make up.
Great if on a budget, a little harsh for my skin.
My favorite by far,now my part of my beauty regime.

Legoland Windsor

Ok so I headed for legoland Windsor with the kids and hubby, have been there a couple of times before but thought I'd review it for all those thinking of going.... As you can imagine it was very busy as this is the peak time to attend so rides queues were long, which I suppose is to be expected 45 minutes to an hour on some rides.
Price- quite expensive day out especially if you are on a budget it cost us £90.00 pound and we have vouchers for the kids to get in free. Also it's best to take you open packed lunch if you don't want to splash out as drinks vary for £2.00 to £2.75.
Overall - great fun and worth a visit the kids had a great time.
Would I go again - yes, but off peak
I feel we didn't get value for money due to the long queue times.

How to get healthy, glowing skin naturally


Do you want a beautiful complexion with clear, 
glowing skin Some of us are blessed with amazing genes that give us healthy skin no matter what we do, but for the rest of us, whether you want to clear acne, clogged pores, or simply get that lively glow of healthy skin, here are some natural tips to get youthful, radiant



·                 Vitamins and foods for healthy skin- Make sure you are getting plenty of vitamin A and C. Vitamin A keeps skin healthy, soft, and reduces oil production. Foods that are high in vitamin A includes sweet potatoes, cantaloupe, carrots, milk, eggs, and apricots. Vitamin C is crucial for making collagen, your skin's support structure, and so it may reduce wrinkles. For vitamin C, you can eat oranges, kiwi, apples, grapefruit, strawberries, whole grain cereals, and red peppers. 
·                 Other important foods for a healthy skin diet are nuts and salmon, which are high in Omega-3 fats, helping your body absorb vitamins and lessening any skin inflammations, along with dark chocolate, green tea, grapes, and cranberries to give your skin an extra radiance. To get youthful skin, eat selenium, found in turkey, Brazil nuts, and whole grains. Also, tomatoes are the best source for the anti-aging lycopene. For more firm skin, get your ellagic acid from raspberries, strawberries, pomegranates, and pecans. Eating oysters helps skin cell renewal and repair with its zinc, but it also keeps your nails, hair, and eyes healthy.
  
·                 Eating Healthy- Remember that what you eat is reflected on your skin. If you put good in, you'll get good out. And if you eat a diet high in junk food, this may be why your face is always breaking out or you have unhealthy skin.
·                 Exercise- Working out not only gives you a great body, but it can give you healthy, beautiful skin as well. Exercising sends extra oxygen to your skin giving you a glow. Also, the endorphins you produce during cardio exercise protects cell damage. And that's not all. Exercising reduces stress, which is linked to acne, dryness, and wrinkles.
·                 Keep hydrated- Drink lots of water to keep your skin from being dehydrated. Also, use lotions to ward away dryness.
·                 Sun Protection- Do not ever use a tanning bed. Also, when you're out and about under the sun, protect your skin with a sunscreen with SPF-15 or higher.
·                 Chemicals- Try to limit the chemicals you put on your face. Try not to use foundation to often as the clog your pores. Use cleansers, washes, and scrubs try to get products that are made with only natural ingredients. Also, if you want to stop using chemical products entirely, consider using aloe vera or honey, both which leaves your face feeling refreshed and beautiful.
Steam your face- An easy and cheap way to open clogged pores and soften skin is to steam your face. It feels wonderful, but remember like everything else it takes time to make a visible difference. To steam your face, first boil water. After the water is in full boil, remover the pot from the stove and sit with your face over the water and a towel over your head to keep the heat and moisture in. Stay like this for 10-15 minutes and after you steam is the best time to use a facial mask because your pores are wide open. Also, you can steam your skin with a hot shower. You can

 ·                 steam your face twice a week. Also, it's good to add thyme, peppermint, or lemon (for oily skin); chamomile or lime (for sensitive skin); rose, rosemary, or lavender (for normal skin). Green tea is another good thing to add.
·                 Beauty sleep- Get a good 8-10 hours of sleep to feel and look refreshed.
·                 Don't smoke- Smoking can lead to skin cancer and even if it doesn't, your skin will suffer and age considerably.
·                 Keep skin clean- Never go to bed still wearing make-up. Also, use a natural wash every night. Exfoliate twice a week by gently massaging in circular motions.

Exercise for Beginners

We all know that regular exercise is good for us. Unfortunately, we tend to get caught up in thinking that the only way to get a good workout is by spending hours in the gym or constantly ‘feeling the burn’.

Just 30 minutes of exercise at a moderate pace each day will make a big difference. Feeling sluggish, tired and mentally exhausted? Try a short walk to get the blood circulating. Unable to sleep at night? Working out gently for 30 minutes will make you physically tired enough to improve get to sleep more easily.

For people who are really overweight or totally unfit 30 minutes might sound daunting. How about 15 to 20 minutes 2 or 3 times a week? Once you get into a routine with a small amount of moderate exercise, you will definitely start to have more energy and feel positive.

Of course, don’t go overboard. Start slowly and aim for small improvements each day. More is definitely not better if you end up sore, sorry for yourself and discouraged.

Here are four ‘moderate things’ you can do today to start exercising.

1. Walk. Yes, it sounds too easy to be true but most of us don’t walk anywhere near enough. The dog will love you, the children will be excited to have you spend time with them and you’ll get out in sun. Even if you have to take a short drive so you can take a walk in pleasant surroundings (I know that sounds a bit illogical) it’s worth it.

2. Try a sport. If you like working out with other people, take up a team sport. I’m not suggesting you train to be an elite athlete, just pick something you enjoy and have a bit of fun. Try not to get super competitive and take it all too seriously. It’s all about moderate exercise.

3. Workout at work. I’m not suggesting you sweat up a storm every lunch hour, just try some basic exercises a couple of times a week. Have a chat with your co workers and get to know them while you share a 30 minute walk a couple of times a week.

4. Chores count as exercise. Gardening and cleaning the house are really effective ways to get some moderate exercise in your day. Who needs complicated gym equipment when you can burn calories raking leaves or doing the vacuuming? Not only will you get a workout but you’ll be pleased that your house and garden are nice and tidy.

Make moderate exercise part of your daily routine and you will be surprised what a difference you can make to your fitness and your waistline.

Benefits of Fasting




The power of intermittent fasting

Michael Mosley checks his weightMichael Mosley fasted for two days every week
Scientists are uncovering evidence that short periods of fasting, if properly controlled, could achieve a number of health benefits, as well as potentially helping the overweight, as Michael Mosley discovered.
I'd always thought of fasting as something unpleasant, with no obvious long term benefits. So when I was asked to make a documentary that would involve me going without food, I was not keen as I was sure I would not enjoy it.
But the Horizon editor assured me there was great new science and that I might see some dramatic improvements to my body. So, of course, I said, "yes".
I am not strong-willed enough to diet over the long term, but I am extremely interested in the reasons why eating less might lead to increased life span, particularly as scientists think it may be possible to get the benefits without the pain.

How you age is powerfully shaped by your genes. But there's not much you can do about that.
Calorie restriction, eating well but not much, is one of the few things that has been shown to extend life expectancy, at least in animals. We've known since the 1930s that mice put on a low-calorie, nutrient-rich diet live far longer. There is mounting evidence that the same is true in monkeys.
Growth hormone
The world record for extending life expectancy in a mammal is held by a new type of mouse which can expect to live an extra 40%, equivalent to a human living to 120 or even longer.
It has been genetically engineered so its body produces very low levels of a growth hormone called IGF-1, high levels of which seem to lead to accelerated ageing and age-related diseases, while low levels are protective.
Professor Victor Longo with two Ecuadorians with Laron syndromeProfessor Longo has investigated growth hormone deficiency in humans
A similar, but natural, genetic mutation has been found in humans with Laron syndrome, a rare condition that affects fewer than 350 people worldwide. The very low levels of IGF-1 their bodies produce means they are short, but this also seems to protect them against cancer and diabetes, two common age-related diseases.
The IGF-1 hormone (insulin-like growth factor) is one of the drivers which keep our bodies in go-go mode, with cells driven to reproduce. This is fine when you are growing, but not so good later in life.
There is now evidence suggesting that IGF-1 levels can be lowered by what you eat. Studies on calorie restrictors suggest that eating less helps, but it is not enough
As well as cutting calories you have to cut your protein intake. Not entirely - that would be a very bad idea. It's about sticking to recommended guidelines, something most of us fail to do.
The reason seems to be that when our bodies no longer have access to food they switch from "growth mode" to "repair mode".
As levels of the IGF-1 hormone drop, a number of repair genes appear to get switched on according to ongoing research by Professor Valter Longo of the University of Southern California.
Intermittent fasting
One area of current research into diet is Alternate Day fasting (ADF), involving eating what you want one day, then a very restricted diet (fewer than 600 calories) the next, and most surprisingly, it does not seem to matter that much what you eat on non-fast days.
Dr Krista Varady of the University of Illinois at Chicago carried out an eight-week trial comparing two groups of overweight patients on ADF.
"If you were sticking to your fast days, then in terms of cardiovascular disease risk, it didn't seem to matter if you were eating a high-fat or low-fat diet on your feed (non-fast) days," she said.
I decided I couldn't manage ADF, it was just too impractical. Instead I did an easier version, the so-called 5:2 diet. As the name implies you eat normally 5 days a week, then two days a week you eat 500 calories if you are a woman, or 600 calories, if you are a man.
There are no firm rules because so far there have been few proper human trials. I found that I could get through my fast days best if I had a light breakfast (scrambled eggs, thin slice of ham, lots of black tea, adding up to about 300 calories), lots of water and herbal tea during the day, then a light dinner (grilled fish with lots of vegetables) at night.


On my feed days I ate what I normally do and felt no need to gorge.
I stuck to this diet for 5 weeks, during which time I lost nearly a stone and my blood markers, like IGF-1, glucose and cholesterol, improved. If I can sustain that, it will greatly reduce my risk of contracting age-related diseases like cancer and diabetes.
Current medical opinion is that the benefits of fasting are unproven and until there are more human studies it's better to eat at least 2000 calories a day. If you really want to fast then you should do it in a proper clinic or under medical supervision, because there are many people, such as pregnant women or diabetics on medication, for whom it could be dangerous.
I was closely monitored throughout and found the 5:2 surprisingly easy. I will almost certainly continue doing it, albeit less often. Fasting, like eating, is best done in moderation.

15 foods that boost the metabolism

How to get a flat Tummy


How to get a flat Tummy

Many people think that the only way to get a flat tummy is to do thousands of sit-ups every day.
While these do play a part, most flabby abs are caused by an unhealthy gut, bad posture and a toxic diet. Janey Holliday, founder of Fit For A Princess, reveals the secrets of a flat stomach.
Avoid fizzy drinks, chewing gum and straws
Most intestinal gas is swallowed air. Swap sparkling mineral water for still – a wedge of lemon in this will contribute to a flatter stomach still as it’s a natural detoxer.Chewing gum not only encourages you to swallow air, but it also tricks the digestion system into thinking you are eating. This means you start to produce digestive juices that cause wind and bloating if no food is eaten. Drinking through straws also means you’ll be taking in air.
Avoid wheat and white foods
Wheat and ‘white’ foods like cake and pasta are often not whole grain. Because most of these kinds of food have little or no fibre, they can block up your system causing bloating and constipation. Replace wheat with sweet potatoes, oats, wild rice and oat cakes and eat lots of vegetables, salads, fish and whole-grain food.
Cut back on dairy
Once we leave infanthood, we no longer have the enzymes to absorb the nutrients in milk. Digesting it then becomes hard, creating mucous and acid in the gut. This upsets the balance of bacteria in the gut, causing difficulty with digestion and reducing absorption of nutrients. Sugar in milk may also cause problems in those suffering from candida albicans (thrush in the gut) because thrush thrives in a sugary, acidic environment and milk is acidic. By reducing dairy products, swelling should decrease in two weeks.
Drink herbal teas & hot water
Warm water by itself soothes digestion by relaxing your muscles. Herbal teas that will help are camomile and peppermint.
Don’t get stressed
When you’re stressed, your body produces cortisol – a hormone secreted by the adrenal glands. This helps you produce blood sugar and pour it into the bloodstream, providing energy for the ‘fight or flight’ response. Any excess sugar that isn’t used is stored as fat. Our adrenal system is a survival mechanism for helping us escape dangerous animals, but our bodies can’t distinguish such danger from work, financial or emotional pressure. Continued stress means the hormone is being released but not used, resulting in fat storage.
Have an Epsom salts bath
Epsom salts baths are one of the cheapest, simplest ways to reduce tummy swelling. Epsom salts – or magnesium sulphate – are traditionally used for treating aching muscles, sports injuries and for relaxing. They are commonly used by naturopaths and osteopaths, too, to ease stress and flush out toxins, as well to restore the body’s pH balance. You can buy the salts in most good pharmacies and dissolve some in a hot deep bath.
Take lactobacillus acidophilus
Otherwise known as the friendly bacteria, lactobacillus plays a vital role in our bodies. Researchers think that these probiotics are an essential link to proper health and well being, and help the body get more nutrition out of the foods we eat. Without enough of these, our intestinal ecology can be thrown off-balance causing pain, swelling and lethargy. It can also help reduce leaky gut syndrome, which affects millions of women. With this condition, large spaces develop between the cells of the gut wall, allowing bacteria, toxins and food into the bloodstream. One of the main symptoms of leaky gut syndrome is abdominal swelling and pain, wind and bloating, so excess flab on your tummy might not be reduced with sit-ups if you suffer from this. Buy good-quality organic lactobacillus capsules from a supplier such as Pure Bio (www.purebio.co.uk). Avoid High Street-branded drinks containing it. They might claim to improve gut function, but often the way they are made and their high sugar content make them ineffective.
Exercise
It’s really important to do cardio exercise if you want a flat stomach. This includes running, cycling, aerobics and swimming. Kickboxing works wonders on helping you get a good waist.
Avoid fruit after a meal
When eating fruit straight after a meal, the fruit starts to ferment, which causes gas and bloating. Your tummy will swell and the bloating can make you tired, making you reach for more sugary snacks. Avoid fruit in the afternoon.
Activate your abs
Place your hands on your tummy and cough. As you expel air, your tummy muscles tighten in towards the body. Hold that position as you go about your day. Keep your shoulders relaxed and breathe properly. You should be able to walk, talk, sit, shop and exercise like this. Over a few weeks, your tummy muscles will be stronger and tighter.
Do the right ab exercises properly
The best exercises for toning are crunch-based exercises done by activating all ab muscles, using the cough method and lifting the shoulders of the floor. Lengthen the spine as you come up, the slower the better, and have a pause and little squeeze of the ab muscles at the top. Imagine your tummy muscles are a sponge filled with water and, as you come to the top, you need to try to squeeze out the water. Return to the start position slowly and repeat.
