4 Ways To Make Yourself More Attractive

If you look at a lot of blogs that are written for women, whether they are mums, teens, 20-somethings, or older, you will find a lot of posts that deal with making yourself more attractive, more appealing, or more sexy.  Most often you’ll find links to clothes, cosmetics, or Cosmo articles. Look, most of us want to feel attractive; however being “attractive” is not something that requires you to blow your budget.  It also doesn’t mean that you have to fit anyone’s stereotype of “attractiveness.” With that in mind here are some of our tips for being more attractive.

My Vagina Ate a Speculum

My last smear test was inconclusive. Between then and now I haven’t worried about it all that much. I had another one today. When I entered the room (room 4 if you need details) there was a very Lovely Nurse waiting to peep up my baby pipe. She was nice, we chatted a bit about my last smear, and inconclusive more often than not is not having enough cells to get a result. You see, they aren’t looking for cancer during a cervical screening, which is what most people still think, they’re just checking the health of the cells of the cervix. Lisa AKA Lovely Nurse went on to also…

How To Help Your Bleeding Gums

I’ve had bleeding gums on and off for the last few years. It seemed to be really prominent during pregnancy, on top of what feels like a lot already going on, bleeding gums can feel like something you can just ignore. It’s not, but by switching up your dental care routine you can help dramatically reduce the bleeding and eventually get none. I’m not going to lie, you need to get used to the taste/flavour but after a few days it’s fine and in the long run – more than worth it. There are a few products on the market at the moment that may help with that, but for…

Seven Day Salad Menu

This salad menu is leaning more into the Autumn flavours. I’m really looking forward to the warm salad of roasted carrots. My intention was to post a recipe for each one but you might find I post a picture on Instagram instead. As they are salads they are pretty easy to whip up so if you do then please feel free to pop a link in the comments 🙂 

Goat cheese and honey parcels with green beans

This one is pretty heavy salad, the creaminess of the goat cheese is brilliant and the sweetness of the honey offsets the salty flavours of the lardons.

Berry boost smoothie.

Rough night feed? Feeling a little less than perky? Try my 5 minute fruity boost. You’ll need a mixer of some kind. Smoothie makes, food processor or a hand blender should do just fine. Sainsbury’s red berry mix (£1.30) Sainsbury’s Greek Style Natural Yogurt (£1.10) Sainsbury’s Honey, Basics (99p) Sainsbury’s British Semi Skimmed Milk (4 pint £1) My littlest one is now 4 months old, that is four months of awkward sleeping times, night feeds, unsettled night and a mother riding high on post birth hormones. All this leads to a less than ideal morning. Rather than guzzle coffee (which is no good if you’re breastfeeding) and shove toast in…
