New hair. 

Good morning.

Just a quick post on what colour I used to go dark. I thought it would be easier if I posted some pictures 🙂 

I used to be a hairdresser and I was always dying my hair. Since I’ve had Mason I’ve had it done twice. I decided to have highlights and keep up with it, but I just never find the time to go sit and have it done for 6 hours. So I decided to make it easier and stick a home dye on. 

I’m also wearing extensions on these photos. There only half an inch longer then my natural hair but I use them for thickness and volume at the bottom. 

They sell this colour pretty much anywhere. Tesco, Superdrug, boots, savers etc. I cost me £4.50. I did have to buy three boxes as I’ve got really thick hair and needed to match up my extensions. 

Loving being back on the dark side 😉

Keepsake. 

  

Happy Sunday everyone! 

This evenings post is about masons keepsake box. What I’ve put inside and where his box is from. 

Firstly his beautiful box is from p_k_boutique on Instagram. Go give her a follow! 

Here’s some pictures of our choice of box. 

In masons keepsake box the things are probably so different from others, because it’s whatever you remember when they were little and why memories the little things hold.

Such as a little wooden star with masons name and 2015 printed on. So simple but it was masons first Christmas tree hanging. 

Personalised vest my mum had made from Disney after Mason was born. 

The first baby grow I ever bought with baby marsh stitched on from My 1st Years. Bought this even before I knew Mason was a little beautiful baby boy. 

All his first birthday cards and ‘congratulations it’s a boy’ cards. 

One of my baby shower invites. 

Masons first pair of slippers which he never wore because I treasured them to much! My big step sister bought them for him. I think they were the first present I received, as I told my family before 12 weeks announcement. 

Last thing is a personalised candle I received from a friend I was supposed to light when he was born but again I wanted to keep it. 

Still collecting bits as I go along. Masons first baby grow he wore in hospital, his foot prints in ink, his first curl etc. By the time he’s older I’m sure I won’t be able to shut it! Everything holds a memory and isn’t that something amazing! 

I hope you enjoyed this post and have a great Sunday evening 🙂

Wednesday play. 

Playing today I realised that Mason is growing up quicker then I can keep up! Masons auntie gave him some little pots of play dough to try – I say to try because I instantly thought he won’t get it and just try to eat it. 

Boy was I wrong. He was rolling it up, cutting it up with his toy knifes, making shapes. Didn’t put it in his mouth once! He’s growing up and realising things he can and can’t put in his mouth now. 

I watch him play and he amazes me. How much imagination he has and how he can play with his pots and pans for hours. My baby certainly has grown up and I’m loving every moment.

Motivate! 

Good evening guys! 

Tonight I’m showing off my mum tum in the not so flattering light. I know I’m not fat and I don’t think I am if anyone’s getting that vibe. Just wanted to show that not all angles are flattering and pictures are not always showing the unflattering sides. 

I haven’t been waist training, working out or eating right. My stomach has took the beating of all the chocolate and biscuits I’ve been consuming. 


I don’t like the way my stomach looks at the moment I’ll be honest but it doesn’t bother me to the point I get upset. I made a baby in there! I’m proud of this flabby tum! 

Although I would like a flat tummy and a perfectly curved body to just appear it’s not happening. I need to get motivated! So starting this week I’ve been back at my waist training and my little home workouts (just stomach crunches, sit ups and squats). 

My waist trainer is from @maskateertm on Instagram. I love mine! It was really working for me which has annoyed me more that I got lazy, but oh well. Always time to start again!

I thought I’d do this blog post now while I’ve gained a bit of tummy weight so you can all see the progress when I do an update blog. Plus I just wanted to show I am human and my tummy is not flat and Victoria secret looking perfect ( as much as I pray ). Plus recently I keep finding myself getting more paranoid about it. Is my tummy showing through my top? Oh god I’ve got a bulge under my belt?! I always say to people if you don’t like something change it. So I’m taking my own advice and kicking my ass in to gear. 

I hope you enjoyed this post and comment on my latest Instagram picture if you’d like an update on my tummy loss or gain!

Spring change around. 

Good evening 🙂 

As Mason grows up I’m constantly changing  his room around to make it fit his age and fit all his toys in. Today I tried to create a play side and then a side for his cot and wardrobe. 

I haven’t bought anything new to rearrange it all so most of the things on the pictures will be tagged on my Instagram photos. If there’s anything you want to know where it’s from direct message me on Instagram 🙂 

Here’s some more pictures of Mason toddler bedroom! 

How I edit my photos. 

Today’s blog post is one that has been requested quite a lot. I get asked a lot so I thought I would blog it and show how to find the app and things and some of my little secrets! 


Before even using the app I have to share how I set out my pictures. As you all can see on my Instagram I do love a white background, it’s not always possible to get my boy set nicely in front of a white background. 

I always take my pictures in daylight, never when the suns gone in. I never use the flash either. Everyone finds a certain way they like the picture. Mine is bright with as much daylight as I can get! 

The app I use is called VSCO. You will find it if you search your App Store. It will look like this picture below. 


Then you need to click the trolley icon and download the filter ‘the aesthetic series’ for the A5 filter. 



Then boom! You’ve got it! Tap the + icon and add your pictures and get editing. I only really use the contract, sharpen and brighten icons. 

Sorry it’s took so long for this blog guys. Hope you all enjoyed it and enjoy playing with the app! 🙂 rebeccajaydex
