Lush Fizzbanger Bath Bomb

I love how Lush's bath products all have different and unique 'themes' (is that the right word? I dunno, but I'm sure you know what I mean). The Fizzbanger is inspired by a combination of the BFG and a Catherine Wheel firework according to the Lush website - very random but intriguing! It was Craig who actually brought this home for me, I'm not sure I would have picked this one for myself as I usually lean more towards the pink and girly ones.
This smells of apple and cinnamon - and I love the smell of both these things! It doesn't contain any glitter like a lot of the other products, but I don't mind either way, it still turns a lovely bluey green colour and makes lots of bubbles.
It retails for £3.25 on the website and in stores.

Graze Breakfast Club + Free Box Code

(I over-excitedly ate one of them before I took a picture - whoops)
I'm pretty sure I've sung my praises about Graze boxes a few times already. I've been ordering their snack boxes for a few years now, but now they've branched out into breakfasts and kids snacks.

I was very excited about this as having breakfast on top of my regular snack boxes delivered makes life with a three month old just a little bit easier. But I was also a bit apprehensive as I've tried porridge before and I wasn't a fan, however the first box is free so I had nothing to lose. The portions look tiny and I wasn't really convinced it was going to fill me up - if I even liked it - but I added a punnet and a half of milk and microwaved for two minutes as the booklet told me. The flavours these porridge's come in are all really lovely and not at all boring. My personal favourite so far is the apple and cinnamon - amazing. And also surprisingly very filling, so the breakfast club gets a big tick from me!

Wanna try Graze for free?

This weekend we went on a bit of a whirlwind trip to London. Craig and Danny were down there to DJ in Pacha, but after my parents told me I should have a break, we decided to make a weekend of it.

Now Flynn is sleeping through the night, he was ready for his first sleepover at nan & grandads. The first night away from your baby is hard. As soon as I got to London and we got to the hotel, I started to feel very sad thinking about Flynn and was seriously considering going straight back home! One thing I've started to realise is that as soon as you have a child, you a) never stop worrying and b) always feel guilty about having time away from them, and actually enjoying yourself without them there. After a little chat with Gemma (Danny's wife), who also has a little boy, I started to feel better and ready to make the most of the weekend. We were right next to the palace so we went for a walk down there, and managed to see a few more sights here and there. As for their set at Pacha, I'm not into house music but I really enjoyed their set, and they were asked to do another set towards the end of the night, so they did really well. All in all it was a tiring but good weekend!
