A few weeks back I was excited to receive a package of supplements for myself and my little boy from Italy’s 30-years-strong leading brand in herbal medical – Erba Vita. I will be honest when I write that I had never heard of Erba Vita before, but I know all about Erba Vita now and I am happy to share their inspirational vibe with you.
With Summer fast approaching here in the Northern Hemisphere, that can only mean one thing – it’s time for children to eat a busload of ice-cream! However, concerns come to hand in my family with this realization as my Son cannot consume cow milk products. This is because he breaks out in an eczema like skin rash. The rash does not appear when he has goat milk products so this is what we give him instead.
Experts agree that motherhood is even more difficult now than it was for past generations of Mums, with nearly one in three Mums consciously make parenting decisions to avoid criticism from others — Doctor Michele Borba
A few weeks ago, here in New York City, I was invited to the Strong Moms Empower Summit and Luncheon. I have to admit, as I am invited to a lot of events, I really did not know what I was walking in to. I actually thought it was a casual get together with a few other local Mummy Bloggers. However, when I arrived at the gorgeous Alexandria Center overlooking the East River, I straight away knew otherwise. This was a really BIG deal. To start with the space was gorgeous and secondly there was a couple of hundred “movers and shakers” in the Mummy world on site.
According to Newsweek Magazine, 60% of women drink — Drinking Diaries
A few month’s back a girlfriend sent me a copy of the newly released (Sept 2012) book Drinking Diaries: Women Serve Their Stories Straight Up.
I was excited to receive the book as, at the time, I had been drinking daily. Hang on, that sounds bad on paper, so let’s back track a bit. What I mean by that is my husband and I would drink a few (or more) glasses of wine at dinner each night. With, most weekends us drinking wine at lunch and the occasional Mimosa or Bloody Mary at breakfast if dining out. Wine is like Water in our home sometimes!
My little boy has allergies to cow dairy products and gluten, so not wanting him to miss out, I created this gluten-free, dairy-free, vegan, sugarless mini-muffin recipe by taking and adding from a few different recipes.
It was my first time experimenting making muffins, and besides over cooking the first batch a little too much, these turned out surprisingly well; being super moist and really delicious. I am very proud of myself!
