Halloween fun with #MAOAMmicschief

Hi all , how are you? My kids finally break up for half term today and I’ve decided to trick them in the name of Halloween. It was really funny I made a trick or treat box using items I had around the house.

Odds and ends from around the house.

I then decorated the box and placed some cardboard inside the box to create two separate sections.Daddy put in the trick whilst I was picking up the kids from school which was some fun squirty play foam and I’m pretty sure there were some fake spiders involved . In the treat side we added maoam strips perfect portion and wrapped which I feel is more hygienic. And for the sake of my mischief stopped the foam contaminating the sweets.

The set up!

When the children arrived home they were so excited and probably thought what the heck is going on.

Emily waiting time dig in 🤣

Emily of course picked treat but all fool her I got the trick or treat mixed up so she got the trick anyway I’d like to say was ment to be that way but was complete accident haha.

Foamy goodness

Harrison had a little go too but his face wasn’t to pleased 😂. I can confirm no children were hurt and both got some yummy maoam after our #maoammischeif I’m thinking up of some more in time for Christmas. Been a testing few months defiantly need some more fun. For more mischeif visit  https://maoam.fun/ and check out the frighteningly fun free events they’re holding at shopping centres around the UK for Halloween!’ 

We all had lots of fun what’s your favourite Halloween trick I’d love to know need some new material for next year haha.

Back to school hacks with ace for whites #ACEIT challenge #AD

Hi all hope you are well , With half term looming i thought id share with you one of my favoutite washing products and some perparing for back to school tips . My children break up on friday for halloween , however thing will look this year we will make it fun. I like to get a head start ready for when half terms over , i usually have a list of thing i like to on the last day of term before we start to enjoy the holiday fun.

My pre-half term list

  • Empty out the school bag’s and lunch box. Any rubbish in the bin/ recycling and any old food emptied out and lunchbox cleaned ready for day one too.
  • I like to get the children to do any homework and spellings , then all can be returned there backpack ready as well. No last minute spuddling for lost homework.
  • Wash and iron the uniforms and hang them ready to go ,day one back no rushing around well…unless the alarm forgets to go off because you haven’t set it not that I’ve ever done that .
  • The dreaded pe bag everything gets washed , dried and put back in.

Some people have called me over organised but I’d rather give myself a head start after half term and enjoy the time with the children. Just spending half an hour or what ever it takes really does take the stress away. The back to school transtiton is almost stress less depending on toddler tantrums haha.

keeping your whites bright with ACE!

  • Seperate your washing properly. For me that means 3 seprate loads 1 x whites 1 x darks 1 x red and that’s just the school clothes. I never mix because i hate when the white school tops are go grey.
  • Use Ace for whites. Simply add the instructed amount to the draw along with your other washing products. Not only does it leave the school tops looking new everytime (see below for comparisson old top washed with ace and a brand new one ). It also removed odours and germs from clothing so not only do they smell cleaner , they are cleaner.
  • Ace for whites also contains bleach so its reccommened its only used on plain white items.
  • Ace is also very concentrated so helps stretch the pennies and still removes stains like the lovely pens the school allow the kids to use that don’t wash off.

(This post is an entry for the #ACEit challenge , sponsered by ACE. Get ideas on how to wash whites , treat stainsand laundry like a boss with tips from the ACE site!)

I am so impressed with how well the ace worked i could wait to rave about it. I dont know about you but any product that is affordable and does such a job is a winner in my book. If your intrested in trying for yourself it currently on sale in morrisons. What are your favourite washing products and what is your best back to school organisation tips id love to know please comment below. Thanks for reading and have a lovely half term

metal health and anxiety update and Self-care tips!

Hi everyone ,hope you are well. I don’t know about you but I’m really looking forward to this year being over. It’s becoming increasingly difficult to get motivated and stay motivated ,recently with the current events ,I’m not even going to mention because I’m sick of hearing about it. All the rules and regulations are fine I suppose we just gotta live with them but would be fantastic if we weren’t all walking on eggshells constantly things changing at a drop of a hat. I wish we could forsea the outcome of it all.

I’ve been really struggling this week With my anxiety and mental health it’s all getting too much and I need to snap out of it tbh but easier said than done. I can only imagine the amount of people who are struggling right now it’s so awful. My advice for anyone who hasn’t dealt with mental health before or someone who is suffering again please get help you don’t have to face it alone. A problem shared is a problem halves as some might say. I’ve compiled a little list below of distractions and coping mechanisms I have personally used to help. I’m no expert mind you but the amount of different therapy’s and treatments I’ve had for anxiety and depression is quite extensive. I used to be quite embarressed because of my mental illness. I’m not anymore we’re all human and sometimes life just gets too overwhelming and stressful and there’s nothing wrong with admitting you may need support accept any help you are able to obtain. That’s the first step I suppose accepting you have a problem and getting any help where you can.

Tip’s

  • Meditation and deep breathing I can’t recommend enough there are some lovely videos avalible on YouTube you can meditate along with.
  • Going for a walk the fresh air and gentle exercise.
  • Get a hobby they can be your greatest distraction for me it’s comping , sewing , blogging this list goes on. It can be anything that makes you happy.
  • CBT self help books can be useful whilst waiting for treatment.
  • Get enough sleep this can be so detrimental to feeling well and defiantly should be top of any self care list.
  • Don’t drink away your problems tempting I know I’ve done it and didn’t help alcohol is a depressant so will only worsen your problems. (Learnt that the hard way)
  • See your doctor and seek help don’t suffer in silence quite possible the most important advice I could give.

Lastly I just wanted to say don’t ever feel you have to suffer alone and don’t ever feel bad about having any of the problems your faced with. Everyone is different we all cope in different ways there is no wrong way . Eventually everything will be ok again, there is always a light at the end of the tunnel as long as you never give up. YOUVE GOT THIS!!!

What are your favourite self-help tips ?I’d love to know please comment below thanks for reading Jade x

Be you !

Hi all , hope your well today im writing about being yourself because changing yourself to be something or someone your not should never be an options. In society today there are so many social pressures to be “perfect”. The increased use of social media , i think may contribute to this but what alot of us forget is that people are not going to share the negative side of their lives or themselves . For instance i have many bad habbits smoking , swearing , biting nails and exsessivly talking when im nervous/anxious to name a few there but they dont make me a bad person , probably very annoying but thats me .

I always used to worry so much about what others thought about me (still do) and truefully i dont even know why? I suppose we all just want to be liked . I found since having my children i do care less now as my priorities changed. Being mother can feel like your not you anymore but i think thats just the overwhelming , sleep deprived state were in for 18 years + and im willing to bet my life this kind of worry never stops.

I personally will be the first to admit i can be very unkind to myself i alway call myself an idiot when i make a mistake , i moan about my spots far to much because god forbit your face has got abit of texture i blame all the filters and photoshopping i see. Ive gained weigh and jiggly bits since having my children do i wanna loose a few pound of course but im trying to focus on accepting myself for who i am. When you start to allow yourself to accept YOU how you are you will feel happier and just better in general.

In recent years alot of my friends have told me about there online dating experiances. so many people pretend to be something there not. It would be great if people could be 100% honest about themselves would save so much miserey. There is nothing wrong with being yourself i truely believe that there is someone out there for everyone. I got lucky when i met liam the old fashion way as people would say at the local pub 7 years later were very happy and both out personalities make one normal person haha. Before we met we both tried online dating for me it was fun and a great way to meet new people but there is a very weird side. I dont know if its the same for men but the amount of intimate pics i recievded and didnt ask for was alarming i dont know in what universe that would attract a women and some very strange request for knickers safe to say i was scared off.On the other hand i know so many people who have met their mr right online too. I suppose it like any other platform good and bad sides.

My advice for online dating.

  • Be yourself dont try to fit someone elses mould YOU are amazing and the right person will see that.
  • Tell the truth if it works out your other half will realise your not who you say you are and could ruin everything.
  • DONT SEND intemite picks nobody asked for or wants.
  • Only use a trusted adult dating site. nostringsdating.net is a good one.
  • Add a realistic photo showing your true self no catfishing! (see below for selfie tips.)

How to take the perfect selfie and share the true you

  • Ditch the filter.
  • Good lighting i like natural light but use what you have.
  • Keep make up natural or simly dont wear any at all .
  • Smile…. Its contagious and really makes a difference on how we feel in ourself and how we are perceived by others.

I suppose what im trying to say is always be yourself no matter what people will love you no matter your quirks. If you can learn to love yourself you will automaticly feel better about yourself. STOP comparing yourself to others and live your best life jiggly bits and all.
