Cheaters Never Prosper ... Or Do They...?

If you follow me on @instagram where you’ll find me as @todayiprimed, you probably won’t be surprised to hear that I’m not the most patient of people. I’ve never been good at waiting around and I suppose that’s part of the reason why I love a good prime – it means things happen – and fast.

When it comes to Prime, I've clearly got issues

I’m the same when it comes to most aspects of my life. Generally, if something needs to be done, it needs to be done yesterday, though since having kids I’ve really had to learn to relax on this front a little. And also for the sake of the husb, too; you may laugh with/at me on @insta but can you imagine what it’s like to live with me?! The man deserves a medal.

Though I have tried to slow down the pace at times, there’s no doubt that family life often means a hectic life and I’m all for tips and tricks to help in this department – if I can sort out the stuff around me fairly simply, it means I’ll surely have more time to spend with my loved ones or perhaps get stuck in to a great book (read: catch up on Love Island, scroll through insta, prime yet more stuff I don’t need on amazon).

When It's Time To (Re)Think Pink

I’m going to level with you right from the start, just so we’re all on the same page here: I hate pink. Ok, perhaps hate is a little bit extreme – but I really, really, REALLY don’t like it very much. Now, I do wear it myself here and there (for my birthday I got a fabulous pink metallic midi-skirt from And Other Stories and it’s up there as one of my current favourite wardrobe items) but when it comes to my kids – particularly, my eldest, Tamara – it’s a shade that I’ve avoided from her birth like a bout of leprosy. By the time Alice was born, I think I was simply too tired to give details like this much thought.
