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 

My mummy bag. 

Hello! 

I thought I would do a little blog about my mummy bag as I call it. 

If you follow me on Instagram you’ll know I used to have the Mothercare Nova changing bag. It was leather, black, it had studs and it was just well perfect for me. But as Mason has grown up my bag has got emptier. 

I decided to down size to the Tiba+Marl at Mama and Papas. It is perfect! It’s still black, leather and stylish looking. The style reminds me of a bowler bag shape which I love. 

It has a large pocket on one side which perfectly fits my iPad, masons red book and the changing mat that comes with the bag. 

There is a bottle holder on each side of the bag. One the holders is to keep the bottle warm or cold, the other has elastics to hold their juice bottle up and prevent any juice all over the bottom of your bag and soggy nappies. I’ve done this to many times. 

The other side has a pocket perfect size for masons nappies and a small one for my phone. It makes me feel very organised in a world of chaos! 

Lastly, take the long strap off and it’s a gorgeous handbag for date night! 

Little P.S 

I’m not some super mum with a super clean child that doesn’t wee up himself or touch anything that’s messy..let’s be real. 

I always have a back pack in my car which is from @ariellascloset_ar on Instagram. 

It always has two pairs of leggings, two vests, a top, cardigan and nappies. 

Sleepy time.

Hello! 

I thought I would do a blog on masons sleeping patterns as it’s what I get asked about the most on Instagram. 

I’m not strict with masons sleeping and everyday is different but he’s normally asleep by 6.30pm. Masons a very good sleeper, he sleeps around 13 hours each night. He didn’t always believe me. When he was first born he didn’t sleep longer than an hour without waking up and thinking it’s party time again! 

As masons got older his routine and kept changing. Mason used to nap two times a day and me and Adam would just wait for him to fall asleep on our bed then move him straight into his cot. Apart from when Mason was very little, he’s never slept in my bed. He’s very wriggly and likes a lot of space! 


As Mason got older I started cutting his naps down to once a day and they always fell at around 10am, so by 6pm he ready to drop. 

But now 90% of the time he doesn’t nap in the day. If he’s woke up earlier that morning then usual and he’s tired by 10/11am I just let him drop off too sleep. I stopped masons naps about 2 months ago and he’s fine without a nap. He still has loads of energy and his mood isn’t any different. If he was tired and miserable of course I would let him to go to sleep which some days does happen. 

Mason went though a phase where he would get really upset whenever I tried to put him down for a nap or if he felt like I was trying to relax him. So I just stopped trying and he just carried on as normal being barking mad! 


Masons routine differs everyday depending what we’ve been doing. We spend a lot of time at my older brothers and he ends up falling asleep on the way home. Masons really good because you can carry him from the car and put him in bed and he doesn’t wake up. 

On a normal day I normally bath Mason around 4/4.30pm. He has his dinner after his bath because his dad gets home at 5pm so we all have dinner together and by 5.30pm some days masons to tired to bath so I do it when he’s chirpy and can enjoy it. 

After his dinner he plays in his bedroom with me and his dad until he starts to rub his eyes and Mason lets you know when it’s bed time. He says mum mum mum over and over again. Quite cute to be honest but I think that’s because I can’t get enough of him saying my name. 

I make his milk and his night time bottle I always make a bit warmer so it settles nicely on his tummy. Mason only has two bottles of cows milk a day now. Sometimes he will only have one and other days he will have three. All depending on how he’s feeling and what he fancies eating that day. 

I have an arm chair in masons room, which I lay him in my arms, feed him his bottle, which normally he falls asleep drinking or I will lay him in his cot and he will sooth himself to sleep. This took a few times to work. He didn’t just drop off the first time I lay him in there. He would cry I would go in lay him back down give him another kiss and cover him up. I think I did this 10 times the first few times I tried self soothing him. 

Every body puts their children to sleep in different ways. It’s what works for you in your home. Mason used to fall asleep in my arms in my bed every night but as he got older he would literally stay awake till 12pm. He has so much energy and he really didn’t want to let himself fall asleep. 

Mason also has a bottle of milk in the middle of the night about 3pm. I do the same in the night. Sit in the chair and lie him on me. Give him his bottle and lay him back down and he will go straight back to sleep. Well sometimes. Not going to lie, sometimes after his bottle he will lie in his bed shouting dad and laughing for 15 minutes but he soon gives up and realises mummy does not want to have a party at 3.30am 🙂 Mason odd times will sleep through but 90% of the time he has a bottle in the night. I’ve tried giving his dummy but he just spits it out and cries till I give him his bottle. I really don’t mind because Mason does sleep a long time, so he probably is really hungry by 3pm. 

Hope your have enjoyed masons little sleep routines. Just remember that every baba is different and this is just what works for me and most importantly for Mason. 🙂 

Storksak Organics spa set. 


Thought I’d do a little review on my new spa set from Storksak. I’ll leave the link below here: 

https://storksak.com/skincare/storksak-organics-baby-spa

I’ve been using the shampoo and body lotion for over a month now and I’ve fallen in love with them. So I decided to try the whole range. The shampoo and body wash smells incredible and Mason hair and skin is always so soft. 

The baby balm works on masons dry skin within days. It’s superb! You can use it on the most delicate skin. 

I think with all the products is the amount you need that I favour. Such a small amount goes a long way. The shampoo I’ve had for 6 weeks now and I’ve used it on Mason everyday and I haven’t even used a quarter of the 100ml bottle. 


The baby oil is becoming my favourite of the set. You run it into yours or your child’s bath and it leaves their skin feeling so hydrated and soft it’s unreal! 

I love oils but I hate when they leave you feeling really sticky. This is perfect because it soaks into their skin while their bathing and no oily mess when they get out. 


These wipes have been amazing for masons face. As he’s always eating it means always has stuff all over his face (and hair most of the time). I use these wipes for masons face and it stops him getting dry skin from me cleaning his face 50 times a day. 

The combination of English pear, chamomile and honey is so subtle and delicious smelling. 

I hope you’ve enjoyed my review and it’s helped if anyone is thinking of trying some organic bath products. 

Rebecca.
