Tefal Fresh Express Review

tefal fresh express

I've had a few chances to play with the Tefal Fresh Express now, so I feel qualified to put up a review on it. I've taken a few videos so you can see it in action. I was too embarrassed to talk on it (who doesn't hate the sound of their own voice), but you get the idea. I had a few people around for some chicken fajitas so this was the perfect chance to cut up some different things and let   << Continue Reading >>

Zucchini Slice

Would you believe I've never actually made Zucchini Slice before? As a kid, it was not something my Mum ever made, so it's not something that comes to mind. I think I've been missing out though, as this was one of the easiest things to make and was super tasty. Roman loves it too. I left out the cheese as hubby doesn't eat it (I swear it's his only flaw) and it was still very good.This was a good   << Continue Reading >>

Cutlery Storage Roll – Tutorial

6380592545_ef1d074d9d_z

Do you have one of those 'good' cutlery sets? You know the ones, they get pulled out for Christmas and then for the rest of the year, take up a huge amount of space in an awkwardly large box.Well, I decided to store them in a roll, like chefs knives. They take up a lot less space and still stay nice and shiny. You can see below, that they use about 1/4 of the space of the box. To make this a quick   << Continue Reading >>

Cocktail Hour – The Bee’s Knees

6361696573_f6f59c5fff_z

This drink is great, as long as you like gin and honey. I therefore, love it. With the combination of lemon and honey, I was a bit worried it would taste like a cough lolly, but the complex flavour of the gin stops that. The lemon prevents it being too sweet, but the flavour of the honey really comes through. A surprisingly grown up drink. The Honey Syrup keeps indefinitely in the fridge, so   << Continue Reading >>

Boxing Up and Preserving a Wedding Dress – Tutorial

6352438876_df961d44a0_z

I, like many others was horrified at the price I was quoted to have my wedding dress packed up. It has since been hanging in the cupboard for the last 6 years. My sister in law hasn't had hers sitting around for quite that long, but when spring cleaning her house, I offered to box up her dress.  It's one of those things that I think isn't really all that hard to do   << Continue Reading >>

The Countdown to Christmas

6342371147_cda7abc751_z

Well, there is less than 6 weeks until Christmas and I'm getting excited! I tend to go a little crazy around Christmas. I love to have carols playing while I put up the tree and decorate the rest of the house. I try not to go too over the top, but I love how festive the place looks when it's all done. I didn't really do any decorating last year when we were in the flat in London, so I might need   << Continue Reading >>

Cot Rail Teething Guard – Tutorial

6308675970_eaeee71ccd_z

Roman's cot has teething rails...along the sides only! It didn't take him long to figure this out, so he chews on the ends. I made up some teething rail guards so he can chew on those instead. They are simply some rectangles with straps on the sides that snap onto the back to hold the guards in place.I made them out of a cute cotton print, also used on the sleeping bag, and used an old towel for   << Continue Reading >>

I'm an Aunty! Julia Lily was born last Friday and I'm totally smittern. Mother and baby are doing very well and we're all so excited to have a new baby in the family. I lasted about 5 minutes from first hearing the news to starting to decorate the little onesie above. I used my alphabet stamps and some Versacraft ink for the lettering and made the little bow out of some cotton scraps.I'm not   << Continue Reading >>

Roman’s Smash Cake Session

6321839422_17736989dd_z

On the weekend, we did a Smash Cake session for Roman's 1st Birthday. For those of you unfamiliar with the term, a Smash Cake is a cake made just for the baby. They get to squash it, poke it, eat it and play with it...all in the name of fun! The idea is to take a heap of photos and I think it's a great way of capturing a baby's 1st Birthday.The day before we planned to do it, I made up the   << Continue Reading >>
