Reviewing StriVectin Skincare – Results After One Week

Now I’m not one to blow my own trumpet … although if I don’t blow it, who will - but I often get complimented on my skin. I’m 47 but it’s not too wrinkly, and I put that down to carrying extra weight (God bless my chubby cheeks), having good genes (God bless my Mum),...

An Amazing Photoshoot Makeover with Red Shoe Makeovers

A couple of weeks ago, I was lucky enough to have been chosen to work with Red Shoe Makeovers – a photography makeover studio in Chester. I already knew of the company as a fellow blogging friend, two in fact, had had makeovers over the past couple of years and I was...

Things I Loved In March

Inspired by my good friend Nickie’s blog post, I thought it would be nice to look back on the last month and remind myself of all the things I loved – I’ll no doubt write about all the things that have got right on my wick another time! If I have the time going...

A Little Life Update

Hello. Remember me? It’s been a little while since I've written but I thought I’d update you on what’s been happening chez Sutton. The main time sucker, has been my new job. Yup, at 47, and after 4 years of working for myself, I’ve gone back to office work and boy,...

My Top 5 Tips For a Great Night’s Sleep

January was an awful month for my sleep pattern. I strangely woke at 4am every morning, without fail, and at the time I didn’t understand why. I knew I was a little more stressed than usual, but why was I waking at exactly the same time every day? And then I figured...

Quick Q&A With Me

I’ve written a couple of emotional blog posts lately – 4 Years Ago Today and The Morning After - and I feel a little … spent. So, when my friend Molly from Mother’s Always Right tagged me in a Q&A, I thought it would be fun, and you’ll hopefully you’ll get to know me...

The Morning After

It's the morning after another Mother’s Day, and I feel I can now come out of hibernation and rejoin the world again. I’ve talked about it before, but it’s an odd day for me. Bittersweet. And so now, I shy away from people, from social media, from family. I don’t even...

Four Years Ago Today

Four years ago today I packed the last few remaining pieces of my life up into a gazillion plastic boxes and left the house I had owned for 23 years. I felt numb. Not sad, not angry, I just felt nothing. The build-up to this day was a long time coming. Trying to cling...

A Little Reminiscing

This is a really random blog post but a comment posted on Facebook today prompted me to think about this one particular place in a shopping centre I used to visit every week with my late Mum and Nan. It used to be a Wimpy and then ‘upgraded’ (it really wasn’t an...

The Best Chocolate Brownie Recipe Ever

It’s official. I’m in a brownie coma. (The chocolate cake to clarify.) I seem to have made the best, the most delicious, the gooiest chocolate brownie going and so I thought I’d share the recipe with you because if I can make it, trust me, anyone can. I did...

To All My Single Ladies on Valentine’s Day

Happy Valentine’s Day! I’ve just spent the morning picking out old carrot chunks from the sink, which is a great metaphor for how I feel about this day really. A bit sick of it all. (It was the remnants of Ben’s red wine gravy he made last night in case you were...

A Dating Tale – Chef Freddo

I’ll be honest, dating in 2018 has been a rollercoaster … and it’s only February. I had one date with a guy who said, “There are three of us on today’s date,” and proceeded to take me to his car where I was convinced he was about to make lampshades out of my skin –...

Restaurant Review: Samphire in Whitstable

I mentioned in my January Life Update blog post that I’d taken my eldest, Ben, to a restaurant in Whitstable recently, so I thought it might be nice to do a review in case you’re ever in the area. Not sponsored, I just think it’s a lovely place to eat. The restaurant...
