Healthy eating/living

Hi Everybody

So its been a while since my last post this time i thought i would do something complelety different and talk to you about my changes in my eating and lifestyle since being pregnant and im hoping to carry it on afterwards. Hopefully this may motivate some of you to follow in my footsteps.

So since being pregnant i have stopped smoking! I was smoking for about 5 years or so and im so pleased i managed to stop as ever since i started i have wanted to stop but never had the will power to do so! Every time i tried before i didnt succeed but knowing i had a little one i needed to protect was all i needed, i dont crave it or miss it what so ever and i really hope i keep it up after i give birth!

I have also started to drink decaffeinated drinks such as tea and coffee, i think even if your not pregnant its such a great change to make, you may experience some headaches if you were someone that used to have a lot of caffeine, but i feel so much better now i have cut down! Decaff tea and coffee doesn't taste any different but it is so much healthier for you, some of you believe you need a caffeine fix to wake you up well i have a decaff tea in the morning and just the hot drink wakes me up. Give it a go!

Another thing i do is take pregnancy vitamins - which are basically just multi vitamins, once i give birth im going to carry on taking these as i believe your body just needs a pick me up and it just helps everything in general!

Going back to drinking cups of tea i usually have two sugars in my tea, i was reading an article the other day about how bad sugar is for you and how we in England have a massive sugar addiction, apparently the government advises adults to only have 7 teaspoons of sugar a day, well i drink an awful lot of tea so thats already gone over the daily amount, then its hidden in jars of sauce and things so gradually im cutting down, i am doing it by half's so at the moment i have one and a half teaspoons of sugar for my tea and i will gradually keep cutting it down. Im also cooking a lot from scratch now which is cheaper and more fun and it doesn't take very long at all! At least then i know whats in it and how much sugar content there is!

Anyway i will stop rambling now, but those are a few suggestions, give it a try, would love to hear how you get on and if you have any healthy eating/living tips please comment below :)

Speak soon!

Baby update - 1 year old

Hi everyone, so i have been wanting to film a baby update for so long, and its so difficult to film a sit down video with Eloise as she just wants to get up and move about so i thought i would do a written version instead!

As you know from the title Eloise is now a 1 year old! Still feels weird to say and type it! So this post is just going to update you on whats shes been up to and what milestones shes been achieving!

Eloise started walking about 11 months old, she took a few steps one week and the next week she was walking from room to room so it happened super super quickly, and now as im writing this shes running around all over the place! We recently brought her first pair of shoes from clarks however one of them has now been lost, we have searched the house so we have come to the conclusion that its ended up in the bin!

We made the transition from baby milk to cows milk about 11 months old. She was already having plenty of cows milk in her cereal so we thought we would change he…

How i celebrated my 21st birthday

So on May 15th 2017 i celebrated my 21st birthday. Well i say the 15th may but i pretty much celebrated all weekend and theres still more to come!

The day before my birthday me and my mum went shopping and brought loads of stuff for our holiday to Cuba. (there is a haul on my channel Lydia Anne on YouTube) it was a really sunny day in Cornwall and it was so nice to spend the time with my mum and Eloise. After shopping i went home to find one of my sisters had decorated my front room with balloons and also put photos on my wall in the shape of a 21. These were photos from when i was born right up until now, i literally am so soppy i cried my eyes out for about 30 mins i couldn't even talk, whilst i was doing that Decarlo couldn't stop laughing at me! When i finally managed to stop crying and actually look at the photos properly Decarlo told me we were going for a meal just me him and Eloise, so i had to go and wash my face and get rid of any make up that was left on my face (wh…
