A Review of the Lumie Luxe 700 Bodyclock

As you know we are big fans of Lumie here. I have been using the Bodyclock Iris for quite some time and husb has been using the Active 250 for longer. When we found out about the new Lumie Luxe 700 we couldn’t wait to try it out.

Now in quick terms the Luxe does everything all the other bodyclocks does but without the aromatherapy function of the Iris but improving the music function of the Active 250 by adding Bluetooth Speakers, not just a Radio.

A Love Story – Me and My New Mattress

Not long before Mother’s Day I got the best gift I could get. No not something lovingly handmade by my son, no not even gin. I in fact got offered the chance to review a brand new mattress. Not any old mattress either, one from the Hilary Devey collection.

My excitement was untrue.

Feeling Calm #57

For my birthday last year I was given a great book ‘Calm’ and a journal from my friends. To help me find some calm in my life and to de-stress a little. I have been writing in my journal everyday since and on Wednesday’s (or late on a Tuesday) I go through the daily highlights I’ve written down and pick out my 10 favourites. 

Hasn’t the weather been amazing?! We’ve been enjoying a lot of outdoors time and doesn’t it make a difference. Garden play is always an easy option for me, but when you don’t even have to worry about warmth and can literally just open the door and shove the child outside it’s even better.

Here are my top ten moments from the last 7 days:

Feeling Calm #56

For my birthday last year I was given a great book ‘Calm’ and a journal from my friends. To help me find some calm in my life and to de-stress a little. I have been writing in my journal everyday since and on Wednesday’s (or late on a Tuesday) I go through the daily highlights I’ve written down and pick out my 10 favourites. 

These last 7 days have been engulfed with illness. I’m still not at my finest but everyone else seems back to normal. Thanks to a vile sickness bug L bought home from Nursery I don’t think I’ve had a full night sleep since last Wednesday!

There aren’t many pictures from these last few days, and nothing much exciting has happened but regardless here are my top ten moments from the last 7 days:

This Plus That Equals…. Little Smiles

This plus that equals…. little smiles

Here’s the latest instalment in my series of posts all about what makes our lives here at home tick. This week is all about a few things that make me smile.

I was chatting to my husband this morning about the beautiful sunny weather and that even though it was going to be cold today, it didn’t matter. Sun just makes  things better and that got me to thinking about other little things that just make me happy and smile.

Feeling Calm #54

For my birthday last year I was given a great book ‘Calm’ and a journal from my friends. To help me find some calm in my life and to de-stress a little. I have been writing in my journal everyday since and on Wednesday’s (or late on a Tuesday) I go through the daily highlights I’ve written down and pick out my 10 favourites. 

I’m back on top of things this week. I’ve got this. I’m making housework look easy, I’m on top of my blogging schedule, even getting my hours in at work and generally just rocking it at the moment.

Flowers
This week’s flowers, I’ve been treating myself to a bunch just becuase

I completely do not expect this to last but I’m going to soak up the good feelings whilst I can.

Here are my top ten moments from the last 7 days:

This Plus That Equals…. What I Should Do With a Morning Off

This plus that equals…. what I should do with a morning off

Here’s the latest instalment in my series of posts all about what makes our lives here at home tick. This week is all about a few things I think I should work on. Like Spending time on myself.

Recently I’ve been lucky enough to have a couple of child free, work free mornings. So I did all the housework, made phone calls, sorted out the shopping and generally worked until I was exhausted. I think I should have played it differently.

Feeling Calm #51

For my birthday last year I was given a great book ‘Calm’ and a journal from my friends. To help me find some calm in my life and to de-stress a little. I have been writing in my journal everyday since and on Wednesday’s (or late on a Tuesday) I go through the daily highlights I’ve written down and pick out my 10 favourites. 

After a long weekend hen party-ing I am knackered but a bit of a break has been helpful and whilst I may be very busy now I do at least feel a bit more motivated.

I’m hoping that things will calm down a bit and I can centre myself once again and fall back into a good routine.

Here are my top ten moments from the last 7 days:

Feeling Calm #50

For my birthday last year I was given a great book ‘Calm’ and a journal from my friends. To help me find some calm in my life and to de-stress a little. I have been writing in my journal everyday since and on Wednesday’s (or late on a Tuesday) I go through the daily highlights I’ve written down and pick out my 10 favourites. 

My winning streak has come to an end. I have been feeling tired and stressed and struggled to find any motivation this last week. A long way from calm if I’m honest.

Things have gotten on top of me a bit and I’m desperate to get that winning feeling back. The previous few weeks I had been so organised and positive. I know exactly what has changed, well built up, but it’s hard to counteract it as it’s not something I can directly change.

Regardless, here are my top ten moments from the last 7 days:
