Preparing Your Child For Their First Trip To The Dentist

Something I really regret is not looking after my teeth better. I spent month and months in and out of dentists having braces as a teenager and after that I just didn’t keep up the care. I had really lovely, straight teeth that I ruined over the years by smoking, drinking way too much coke and not going to the dentist often enough. We have tried so hard to get Erin into a good routine for brushing her teeth but if you have a child under 4, you will know that this isn’t always the easiest thing. We’ve had times

5 Ways To Boost Your Mood

Giving My Feet A Pamper For National Feet Week

AD | Gifted Our feet do a lot for us. They put up with walking in ridiculous heels, they chase around after children and they walk a crazy amount of miles without us giving them enough rest. I couldn’t even tell you how many nights out I had when I was younger where my feet hurt so much at the end of the night so I took my heels off, danced around them and somehow hobbled home in bare feet. They definitely weren’t my best days. The reason why I am talking about feet so much is because it is

Getting A Peaceful Night’s Sleep With The Good Night Anti-Snoring Ring

AD | Gifted I cannot tell you how many times in a night I shove John or tell him to turn over because he’s snoring so much or so loudly. He sleeps so soundly though so it definitely annoys me more than him and if you ask him, he will tell you that I snore too. I try to tell him that I don’t but the thing is, he can sleep through anything whereas I can’t. We’ve recently been sent a Good Night Anti-Snoring Ring to try out to see if at least one of us can get a better

Four Tips For Sleeping Well As You Age

AD | Collaborative post Sleep is a huge part of our lives (about 33% actually)—and it should come as no surprise that sleeping well is vital to our overall mental and physical health. And yet for many of us, because of busy schedules, lack of a calm nighttime environment, or a medical condition, getting a good night’s rest is easier said than done. As we age, it’s normal for our sleep patterns to naturally adjust themselves, but getting enough sleep is still just as important as ever.  Sleep deprivation also contributes in memory loss in the old.  So the more

The Surprise Of A Panic Attack

At the beginning of December I went on a weekend away to London with my Mum. It had been something that I’d planned months before and it was my Mum’s Christmas present. I had a hotel booked, theatre tickets and meals out as well as some exploring time. It was also the first weekend away I’d had without John or Erin for about 2 years so I was really looking forward to it. Unfortunately, right at this time Greater Anglia had some horrendous problems with the trains in our area. At about 6pm on the day before I was due
