The importance of Mama time and ‘The Mirror’ by Deborah A Stansil review


The all important entity that is ‘Mama Time‘; we all know how amazing it can be for us and how much it can ease our stress filled days with a little chill out, but do we set aside time for ourselves in our busy bee schedules?

Well reading is the perfect getaway, so when I was asked to review fellow blogger Deborah Stansil from My Random Musing‘s new novel ‘The Mirror’ I jumped at the chance; a perfect excuse to get lost in a good book.

I’ve been nominated! For the Blogger Recognition Award


I am super excited to announce that the amazing Mom Of Two Little Girls has nominated me, after being duly nominated herself, alongside some gorgeous Mother bloggers. I thought I’d read it wrong when I saw it but no no… here I am writing about how humbled I am and that in my meagre 5th month of blogging it is super exciting to be gradually noticed by the awesomeness that is the blogosphere! SO… to pay it forward and keep the ball rolling… Im nominating another 15 rockin’ bloggers that deserve some recognition too.
