Slimming World : Weekly Weigh In Results & Food Diary #1

Last week I took the plunge and joined a local Slimming World group.

The Perfect Entrance to your Entertaining Space: Bi-fold Room Dividers

If your home is large enough to house separate rooms for dining, cooking and lounging then dividing up the rooms is likely not an issue.  However, if you have an older style home with massive rooms which get cold, draughty and uncomfortable when it comes to entertaining, room dividers may be on your wish list. Similarly, maybe you live in a beautiful open plan apartment or house that is great for day to day living with the family, but what about when you want to impress your diners?

This is when bi-fold room dividers can come into their own. They have been on interior designers and architect’s plans for a long time and are now becoming increasingly popular with homeowners looking to divide up their space in a clever and design-led way.

Giveaway : Breastvest

While breastfeeding isn't something to be ashamed of some mothers (myself included when I was doing it!) are very paranoid about feeding in public.
