Top blogger Honest Mum celebrates her 36th birthday

My 36th Birthday Dinner + My Most Favourite Vlog EVER

Saturday night was a complete whirlwind as twenty of my friends gathered at my brother's beautiful Italian restaurant Giorgio's in Rodley for fab Italian food, bubbles and a delicious two-tiered chocolate birthday cake. If you're going to do it, you might as well do it right, hey?!

Santa’s Snack Hacks with Primula Cheese

Christmas is the time for friends and family to get together and as the 'hostess with the mostess', I love nothing more than having everyone round my maison to celebrate the festive season.

Celebrating My Cousin Georgia’s 21st Birthday

Wednesday saw Mum and I head to Leeds to surprise my gorgeous cousin Georgia for her 21st Birthday. Georgia had no idea that we, or her folks and brother, would be turning up to the Alchemist in Trinity, Leeds, to celebrate her special day with her.

The Perfect Decadent Snack with Primula Cheese

We love entertaining here and it's been a month of partying this November from my birthday (which has been dragged out for pretty much most of the month-well you only turn 35 once right?!... to my cousin's epic 21st birthday party on Saturday night).

The 6 Week No Sugar Challenge & Going Paleo

The last few weeks have seen my usually pretty healthy way of eating go to pot, with lots more sugar finding its way into my diet from celebratory cakes to afternoon teas and far too much champagne (with my recent 10th wedding anniversary, my brother's engagement and baby cousin's birth)- making me feel sluggish, tired and really not my best, physically and mentally. I've less energy than usual, haven't been sleeping well and my PMT is worse than ever.

Alexander’s 2nd Birthday Celebrations

Last weekend saw my youngest son, Alexander turn 2, two whole years! I know every parent on the planet says the same thing, but doesn't time fly, people?!

Our Very Merry Christmas!

I appear to have drifted into a festive themed blissful retreat filled with quality family time, delicious, Christmas food (Greek, English, French) and sunny, invigorating winter walks: wow, what a week. I feel like a new girl: relaxed, renewed and ready for the New Year. Cheers!

Nesting Mode…

I appear to be in full on crazy lady nesting mode right now and find myself obsessively organising like crazy. Even my Tivo box favourite shows are in order of preference (Kardashians and back issues of TOWIE first)-what I'm pregnant... and yesterday saw me sorting out my husband's sock drawer. In my defence I was high on Celebrations chocolates and the latest episode of Corrie.
