Sensationail πŸ’…πŸΌ GEL POLISH REVIEW

Really happy with this Fuse Gelnamel gel polish from Sensationail at Asda. πŸ’…πŸΌI love saving money, a good DIY and with practise I will have fabulous nails to suit a good budget! πŸŽ€


A cute pink πŸ’• since I’m filming my 1K Subscriber giveaway video today so had to look cute for you guys 😘😘

Click here to see my YouTube channel!


I bought loads of DIY nail stuff of Amazon and beauty shops over the last couple of years but not used them consistently.  I do have a UV Lamp which you need for this product. πŸ‘ŒπŸ»

The polish was Β£15 if I recall correctly and the cashier said it was expensive.  I reminded her that it costs almost double that for a professional manicure, and I will get many uses from this one polish. βœ…

I’ve researched on Pinterest and YouTube at DIY tutorials.  My favourite channel is Naio Nails.  They have their own range of products and the tutorials on YouTube are fab.  Kirsty the presenter makes it really simple & she seems really down to earth which always makes things more watchable don’t you think?

Not to mention the nails always look fab!!πŸ’…πŸΌ

Next time I’d be more careful to stay away from the cuticles and sides.  Probably apply thinner layers.  And I want to try a bolder colour next time.  I may do this with tips and a gel builder I have.  Although I like the idea of embracing my chubby hands and being happy with the nails I have.

If you’d like me to film these DIY nails experiments let me know & I will pop them up on my YouTube channel.

I’m no expert by any means, just having fun. πŸŽ€

Captured moments of magic.. #TBT

Throwing it back to 2012. The year I gave birth to my second born. My son, my man, my boy. πŸ’™

 Maternity leave was very much anticipated. Working full time with a one year old to 37weeks pregnant.. I was sooo ready.  I had been fortunate enough to get a new job, a promotion and buy a new house all during this second pregnancy (2011-2012) but boy it was a lot and 2012 was going to be the year of my babies being babies.  

Cuddles and play with my babies are the best times in life, no doubt. And I still savour the moments, although with all the things that need to get done, it’s easy to put play time at the bottom of the to do list. I try hard to refrain from saying ‘no’ to times like this, because as a busy Mum there is ALWAYS so much to do.  But regret is a bitch & I do not want to look back and say “I wish I’d played with them when they wanted to.” The washing up, laundry, vacuuming, emails, phone calls, can wait, for a while.  

They grow so fast, I can’t believe this picture was 5 years ago.

By the way I’m not squashing my baby boy and my 1yo daughter was also not injured in the making of this fun filled snapshot.

Another reason why I WILL NEVER BE ASHAMED OF MY SELFIES. Because memories are priceless.


In my opinion the camera itself is the best invention human kind has ever seen. To be able to capture a moment with science and engineering? Magic if you ask me. 

#throwbackthursday #Throwback #TBT 

If you must look back..

Don’t look back, that’s not the way you are going.πŸ‘ŒπŸ»Don’t look back in anger. πŸ‘ŒπŸ»


But I do encourage you to look back and see that you are here and now because you survived, you overcame, you succeeded through the toughest challenges, the moments you considered giving up. The times you avoided danger and death. We’ve all had a moment where we think ‘I could have died’ or ‘that could have been me’ but it wasn’t.

So if you are going to look back. Look back and be grateful for how strong you are. How alive you are. And how wonderful that is for you, and for all of those who love you so much. Because they do. πŸ’œβœŒπŸΌ

Post Natal Throwback πŸŒΏ

Here is a #throwback to a few years ago. I had two under two. πŸ‘ΆπŸΎπŸ‘ΆπŸΎ#Breastfeeding one on demand and #PottyTraining the other. πŸ™‡πŸ»β€β™€οΈ#PostNatal hair loss #Hypothyroidism #depression and building #anxiety was challenging me day and night. πŸ˜–πŸ’”I lost a lot of friendships, got made redundant, lost my career. Most days I was in the house alone with the babies; my family lived miles and miles away.  


I had been fighting my #hairloss with sewn in extensions. The #weave put more pressure on my hair and made it worse. I was left with huge bald patches and resorted to a wig shortly after this picture. I lost all of my confidence.  

The breastfeeding and running around after 2 & housekeeping meant a lost a lot of weight.  
I was getting lots of compliments from people as a result of my #weightloss but I didn’t feel attractive, I didn’t feel sexy, I didn’t feel the woman I once was. πŸ‘ŽπŸ»Someone very close to me was going through a terrible struggle and I couldn’t do anything to save them. Which tore me apart.πŸ’”

My Dad was in a new, and very strange relationship and we a lot of contact.

I lost a lot but I had my babies. πŸ™πŸΌ My squad to pull me through each day. I had to be up to par for them. 

It’s been a rocky road to recovery but I can’t ever see myself going back to the dark and vulnerable place I once was.

This is a huge part of why I connect with women, mothers like me who find themselves struggling in their maternal life with their mental and emotional wellbeing. I will be working exclusively with women in my clinic going forward.  

If you are struggling with mental and emotional health issues you can contact me to find out more about #Hypnotherapy and how it can change your life, like it has changed mine and many others’.

Two under two.

Now my son is almost 5 and my daughter is 6 and a half.  They are so independent now that as annoying as trivial needy moments can be, I find myself secretly relishing in them.

“Mummy lie in bed with me”

“No babe your a big kid now get to sleep night night I love you.”

“Oh”

“ok then! ” *Gets in bed for snuggles.

My babies are little people, and every day is a reminder!


But there was a time when it felt like I had been pregnant and breastfeeding for two years.  When I had two, under two.


My daughter was 19 months to the day when my son made his entrance into the world.  The labours and births were worlds apart but that’s another blog post.


People said to me “how are you going to do it?”  “Are you ready?”, “Will you manage?” 

My response: “Millions of other women have done it before me so I can do it too”

And when the time came I was so overwhelmed. I exclusively breastfed my son I didn’t have any family or friends close by and I got made redundant whilst I was on maternity leave.  There were a lot of challenges during that time and I developed post natal anxiety.

But now? I MISS IT SO MUCH!

And having had therapy and mastering Hypnotherapy for myself and others.  If I could go back in time I would be so much more chilled out and mentally well.

Never the less we had some great times; Breastfeeding was my saviour.

Breastfeeding made me sit down, enabled me to relax to feed my son and have a proper conversation with my toddler daughter.  Instead of multitasking, rushing and panicking about all the things I now know I really shouldn’t have.

I lost so much weight I was smaller than I’d ever been and I didn’t know what I was experiencing had a name; anxiety.  


I look at my big little kids and feel like their ‘littlehood’ is slipping through my fingers.  I am reminded with every curious question they ask how they are growing up and getting more and more independent each day. 

I miss the daytime naps, cuddles and breastfeeding.  All the time together! Literally! I dread the day they leave home! But that day, thankfully is nowhere near yet. πŸ™πŸΌ

 And so to my babes; I am so proud of the little people you are becoming.  I miss you when you are at school and when I am studying and working but it’s all for you.  And I am so blessed to be your Mama and I thank you for bringing me so much joy thus far.  As you grow, it fills me with joy and pride.  When I wake up in the morning with you both by my side having crawled in in the early hours, I smile, silently and savour the moment.  And I will continue to do so.  You are full of our love, always. 

P.S SALUTE! To all the Mamas! Parents and especially if twins and twos under twos and threes under 5s etc!

How I started my day.. (clean eating)Β 

🌿 I have been eating “clean” cutting out processed foods and refined sugar.  

🌿 Yesterday & today I made this smoothie and found it was ACE for KICKING CHOCOLATE CRAVINGS β€οΈπŸ«πŸ™ŒπŸ»

Foods I have cut out:

  • White Potatoes πŸ₯”βŒ
  • Pasta 🍝❌
  • Bread 🍞❌
  • Biscuits πŸͺ, Cakes 🍰, Sweets 🍬 etc❌
  • Sugary Drinks or Artificial Sweeteners ❌
  • White Rice 🍚❌
  • Gluten Crisps ❌
  • Refined sugar ❌
  • Chocolate 🍫❌

( I don’t eat/drink dairy products anyway)

πŸ¦‹ Due to my thyroid condition I do struggle with having sufficient energy & suffer with “brain fog”.  Over the last couple of years I had slipped into a poor diet & was feeling sluggish and weak as a result.

🌸 This decision is not based on weight loss as I am actually happy with my body BUT I’M REALLY UNHAPPY WITH HOW MY BODY FEELS INSIDE.  I am suffering with joint pain sluggishness and the heavier my body is the weaker I become.

So I thought I would document & share my new ‘clean eating’ habits & results.

This is how I started my day today.  I am home so had some time to put a smoothie together. 

I had my medication and supplements with plenty of πŸ‹Lemon WaterπŸ’§.


Lemon water has definitely become a winner for me, helping with energy levels, and I think digestion. Ideally I drink with bottled filtered water, but tap water is tolerable with lemon for me. πŸ‹πŸŒΏ

πŸ™πŸΌπŸ‘ŒπŸΌ I did some yoga and followed that with this delicious smoothie. 🍌 I included some cocoa powder as I have been craving chocolate and didn’t want to be temped to buy sugary processed chocolate. ❌🍫


Morning Smoothie:

  • 1 Banana 🍌
  • Handful of frozen berries (red and blue)
  • Half an avocado 
  • Almond Milk πŸ₯›
  • 1 Scoop vanilla protein powder 
  • 1 spoonful cocoa powder 

RESULTS:

Since making these changes I have noticed these winning results:

βœ… Increased energy

βœ… No bloating

βœ… No sluggishness

βœ… Feel full WITHOUT bloating or sluggishness.

βœ… Decreased appetite

βœ… Much Less cravings for salty & sweet foods

βœ… Weight Loss

βœ… Tummy feels flatter

βœ… Better mood

βœ… Feeling more positive

βœ… Improved cognitive processing 

βœ… Less Brain Fog

βœ… Less Joint Pain

βœ… Better concentration & Productivity 

βœ… Emotionally calmer 

βœ… MY CHILDREN ARE MAKING HEALTHIER CHOICES TOO! πŸ™ŒπŸ»

An emotional note to my bairns.

I will be the one to wipe your tears, kiss you goodnight, do your homework with you, wash your hair & cheer you on. Every breath I have goes to this. And I will never be willing to give that up. Because they are some of your needs and just some of what you deserve from me. I am your Mother & this role does not expire nor exchange. Ever. You are full of my love & I am full of you. A blessing I prayed for what seemed endlessly.

You heard my heart beat from the inside, you were brought here through me & my duty and HONOUR is to be devoted to you. Always. ❀️🌎

Mama’s Me Moments..

MAMA’S ME MOMENTS ; Are you making time for YOU??
I’ve completely lost count of how many times a member of family or friend has firmly said to me “and don’t forget to look after YOURSELF”

I’m sure some of you have heard this too.
I’m pretty sure I always responded with what I thought was a convincing “I won’t, thanks”.
Well I have a huge confession to make. I absolutely lied; I did forget to look after myself, in fact I knew I would forget to. Not only did I forget, I pretty much totally ignored my needs as an INDIVIDUAL.
We all do it, we fall in love, commit ourselves to a relationship and before we know it we are no longer our own priority. We do this instinctively (well most of us I’d like to think..) it’s understandable for the majority of us to put our family’s needs before our own. Children come along and BOOM!! We are waaaay down on our own list of priorities; does that even make sense?

No! It doesn’t, so it’s important for us especially parents to ‘MAKE SURE TO MAKE ‘ME MOMENTS’ ‘.

So what happens when we neglect our own needs; well, we burn out! And some of us (myself very much included) don’t realise the importance of me time until it’s too late.

I recall my sister reminding me on many occasions, that a mother LIONESS will feed herself before feeding her cubs, and this isn’t due to hierarchy. It’s because the Lioness needs the strength to care for and protect those vulnerable little Cubs!🦁❀️

#thankssis πŸ’Œ


So if you are making time for yourself; CONGRATULATIONS 🌟 & keep it up!! πŸ‘ŒπŸΌπŸ‘πŸΌ

And please please please I would really really appreciate it if you can SHARE THIS POSTπŸ™πŸΌ with your methods, techniques and tips that work for you to give you the much needed ‘recharge’ and how you maintain me time, because some of us need to hear how to and be reminded that it’s not just ok, but vital to do so.  Thankyou πŸ’œ

Because there is no doubt that we can take better care of our loved ones when we maintain care for ourselves. And would you want to set the example to the young ones in your life not to take care of themselves, I know I certainly don’t want to.

If this post is making you aware of the fact that you are too low down on your priority list; then ADDRESS THAT!

Here are some tips, if you feel you are struggling to make me yourself a priority.. 

1) get your friend/s to make their me time with you. Perhaps you are finding it hard to justify some time spent solely on yourself? Well if so invite a friend or two or even your partner to join you at a spa; book in a party of treatments and commit to it! You can get great deals online regularly.πŸ’†πŸ» πŸ₯‚

Now! no excuses go enjoy yourself!

2) Review your health & beauty care regimes?πŸ›€πŸΎ  I know I don’t spend nearly as much time on my beauty care regimes since having children, so I imagine most of you are the same. But on the days you make time to exfoliate, tone, moisturise, mani-pedi and tan etc, don’t you feel so much better? So do it. Go on! πŸ’†πŸΏπŸ’†πŸΌπŸ’†πŸ½πŸ’†πŸ»πŸ’†πŸΎ

3) AROMA: burn some relaxing aromatherapy or essential oils, oil burners can be picked up cheap and even second hand, borrow one if u can and let the oil and candle do all the work on relaxing the atmosphere around you.😍 do this as afternoon is becoming evening. Enjoy the aroma, and as you do, think of all of the things about your life you do enjoy and wouldn’t want to be without. πŸ™ŒπŸ»
4) Put pen to paper: πŸ“ all the things that are buzzing around your head making you feel overwhelmed and unable to prioritise some me time, scribble them all on the paper, letting it out will help you clear your head. 
Now cross out all of the things on the paper that are out of YOUR CONTROL.

Take a few deep breaths, now cross out the things that don’t need to be done today. Now close your eyes take a few more deep breaths, look at the paper again and cross out the things that don’t need to be done right now. πŸ‘ŒπŸΌ

Well done you did it πŸ‘and and you feel a little bit better don’t you?πŸ‘Œ 

Now you should be left with a few short tasks to undertake, do those and then schedule in some me time before taking up any more.

Personally I’ve spent way too long unable or perhaps unwilling to make myself a priority. I didn’t have any family and friends locally, that & #breastfeeding on demand, made my perfect excuses! I think I also didn’t want to admit how (incorrectly) guilty I would have felt at the time for putting myself first even for half an hour..

It is especially difficult when you don’t have a babysitter available to take yourself for a massage or maybe difficult to generate time and money to do something like that, well there are ways around it. You just need to focus your mind to generate the ideas. 

(Hypnosis can help with this: I will be teaching self hypnosis in my clinic. Contact me for more info.)

RECENTLY I was fortunate and sensible enough to designate a ‘ME DAY’ recently. A friend and I went along to Hoar Cross Hall Spa Resort for a much needed day of relaxation 😍

Now I’d never actually been on a spa day before in fact I’d never been to a spa at all! The last and only time I’d actually had a professional massage was about ten years ago!πŸ™€

I have to say after a Luxurious day at the spa I have committed myself to designate a ‘me day’ (perhaps not a full day) but at the very least; a regular, relaxing, therapeutic massage.

My friends and family know I have spent a long time with chronic pain due to a spinal injury which fortunately is much better these days, and I feel like a ‘new woman’. My back feels comfortable, I usually ‘manage’ getting out of bed in the morning with a slow process of stretching, deep breathing and visualisation.

After my me day I was up and out of bed and brushing my teeth pain free before I realised I’d not needed to go through the slow stretching routine.

I have been feeling much more relaxed, happier and this ABSOLUTELY is better for MY FAMILY!!

****you know when the kids are fighting and the house is chaotic with toys etc and you just want to shout ‘SHUT UUUUP’???

 Well after some me time I can just intake a long deep breath and continue eliminating this situation by calmly tidying a little and quietening the atmosphere****. 

Because I’ve created the ‘headspace’ to do this during my 

πŸ™πŸΌπŸ’†πŸ»πŸŒŸπŸŒŸπŸŒŸπŸŒŸME TIME! πŸŒŸπŸŒŸπŸŒŸπŸŒŸπŸ’πŸ»πŸ‘ŒπŸΌ

I actually did some really wonderful SELF HYPNOSIS whilst relaxing at the spa; and I am enjoying the benefits days later. I’m so excited to be teaching my clients self hypnosis. 🌟
So my plea to you today is;
MAKE ME MOMENTS

you need them & your family need you to have them 😊
Especially those of us whom care for children, parents, relatives, clients, friends, because you will care for them better when you #care #for #yourself.

And let’s face it we can’t always rely on other people to do it for us can we?
Over the last few years I have regrettably neglected myself so much. I honestly think if I had vowed to myself to have a weekly shoulder and back massage or an hour here and there having a swim at the pool.. I may have avoided but surely managed much better emotional struggles I have experienced over the last few years #ocd #depression #anxiety  .

Free Hypnotherapy for Anxiety

Do you experience anxiety?  Is unwanted stress compromising your emotional wellbeing? 

In 2013, there were 8.2 million cases of anxiety in the UK.

In England women are almost twice as likely to be diagnosed with anxiety disorders than men.

( Data source: https://www.mentalhealth.org.uk/statistics/mental-health-statistics-anxiety )

 I have created a free audio hypnotherapy program to help you overcome anxiety and worry with this wonderful relaxing sleep therapy.

For best results, listen every day or at bed time each night. Eliminate distractions and make yourself warm and comfortable. DO NOT listen to this audio whilst doing anything that requires your full attention.

Allow your body to relax, your conscious mind to wonder and drift, whilst you program your unconscious mind to overcome the challenges that have been holding you back.

Stop unnecessary worrying or anxiety and enjoy this life.

Missing motherhood..

Now both of my kids are at school full time, and I’m at uni full time I am missing them so much!  Our time together in the evenings flies so quickly.

We rush in ( I put my pjs on INSTANTLYπŸ‘ŒπŸΌ),

My favourite pyjamas are these Chelsey Peers ones I got for Christmas they are so soft, cute and comfy. 


 I cook; we eat, we bathe and chill a little 

(Current Tv series we all love is Annedroids; on Amazon) 


hopefully having a story or two before we sleep.  


Some evenings we have more time than others and it all feels so rushed for the most part.  After a great deal of overwhelm, good old mum guilt and wondering if I can actually do this… I have recently resided to the fact that my son is not going to be reading his school book every day.  He is just too tired some nights, I don’t want to make reading a chore; and that I won’t be wearing a full face of glam make up most of the time, it’s not that important, and I am quite alright with how I look without contour and winged eyeliner.

BUT

The summer is approaching.. I will have completed Semester 2 at uni, I can put time once again into creating more content on my YouTube channel & my blog.  And when the kids finish school.  We have so much fun ahead of us.  


I look forward to the weekend all week, but this weekend we have birthday parties etc and it’s all go!  Extra cuddles, crafting and cooking: RESULT.  But it’s always gone in a flash isn’t it(?)

Note to self: relax and enjoy the time, just be.

I feel so much better now I’m not stressing about the kids falling behind with reading (they aren’t & recent parents evening reports were very reassuring) and because I’m not stressed about it; neither are they.  And we can reserve our reading time for when we have just that, TIME.  

When reading can be enjoyed, no rushing, no pressure.  Just how it should be; a literary pleasure.  And the bedtime stories just got really fun again! 


So now I have my priorities straight; I’d better be hitting the books..

Bring on the summer! πŸ™ŒπŸ»

Peace & Love,

Hypno Mama πŸ’œβœŒπŸΌ

Reflecting

😌 I had quite the ‘om’ morning.  I Awoke before the children, just before 5am and sat peacefully downstairs sipping my water writing poems about #depression.  

(Nicer than it sounds).


Mental Health Awareness Week is approaching & although I am very thankful reflecting on my journey (thankful that depression is in my past).πŸ™πŸΌ

I do wish that such a thing had existed when I was a 17 year old girl wishing I wasn’t in existence. πŸ˜”πŸ’•πŸ’œβœŒπŸΌ

Dear Alpro..

Dear @alpro I am so grateful for your products on the shop shelf.πŸ™πŸΌ Over the years I have been so happy relieved and grateful to see more stockist of your products. πŸ‘πŸ»

They make my life so much easier since we don’t have dairy we don’t have to miss out on goodies like milk, yoghurt etc. Something my children & I are so happy for.


 And I just want to let you know that the carton Of almond milk I selected for our morning cereal had a defective ring pull, I tried a knife and then my teeth and as you can see it went everywhere. 


 Yes a face palm moment indeed. However, none of us are perfect and I want you to know that despite this incident, it’s still mad love between us.  There is no point crying over spilled milk after all.

Love Hypno Mama & the HypnoKids πŸ’œβœŒπŸΌ

How can I allow anything to stop me now?Β 


When the odds have been heavily against me, I have knocked them into insignificance..When I’ve had low days, weeks, months, years, and wondered where the fuck I am.. I’ve risen over it to a higher consciousness..

When I’ve been pushed, pulled & poisoned, I have maintained, albeit unconsciously my inner strength. And grown more..

Before I consider anything stopping me doing what I need to do, being who I am here to be and creating what I have to create.. I owe it to the younger me to look back at the toxic shit I’ve suffocated through to breathe the air of today’s presence.

Have a rest.. Then do the rest!

Hello, it’s Sunday! I am well rested & I hope you are too! If not πŸ’• HAVE A REST! πŸ’•Then do the rest! πŸ‘ŒπŸΌWhen you are well rested you are more productive βœ…organised βœ…and think more clearlyβœ….  

Meaning you can get all of the stuff done that you could have been putting off lately.. sound familiar?πŸ€”

If you haven’t had a good night sleep or even if you just need five minutes with a cup of tea AND 🚫 NO DISTRACTIONS!!🚫 🌸Put your smartphone away for 10 minutes🌸, (honestly it WONT HURT!) πŸ’• 

Sit your gorgeous self down have a brew β˜•οΈ and recuperate. πŸ™πŸΌ

 You can thank me later for how much more productive you are after you have organised your thoughts. πŸ’œβœŒπŸΌ I know a lot of you are out there on your #grind raising businesses πŸ‘©πŸ½β€πŸ’»and babies πŸ‘ΆπŸ» & I GET IT. Take 5 and #feelfabulous πŸ’œβœŒπŸΌ 

Peace & Love, Hypno Mama x
