Hi everyone! I have moved my blog! I had two blogs one called the pampered pout and this one Lilly and me. My first blog was the pampered pout which was my beauty blog and I started to add my mummy posts in but then decided to start my own parent and lifestyle blog. In a nut shell I felt like I had to blog on my beauty blog at least 3 times a week but hit a blogging wall and neglected that blog, Now I have been wanting to start beauty posts again.

I have to decided to merge my two blogs together and have beauty, mummy, fitness etc posts on different days all in one blog.... I even bough a new shiny URL, check me!

So this blog is inactive now and if you follow this blog I would love for you to come and follow my new blog www.lillyandme12.com or on blog lovin http://www.bloglovin.com/lillyandme2012

Thanks everyone :) xx

What I Ate

Hello! Todays what I ate isn't from today but a post from last week I wrote but forgot to publish so I thought I would post it today. I had a naughty weekend and had a Chinese and we went out for dinner yesterday. I seem to be good in the week but the weekends seem to be my binge days and I know that's whats stopping me loosing weight so I really need to get on that!
For breakfast lately I have been loving greek yogurt with granola and some sort of berries. In my last what I ate Wednesday I said I didn't really like berries but im trying to change my taste buds and after having this for breakfast every day I now really look forward to it and im really enjoying breakfast. I also love flaxseed which I try and sprinkle on everything.

Lunch was something I found through a youtuber when I was looking for weight watchers recipes. Its called Quorn tikka. If you love a little bit of tikka you will love this! I usually put this in a bagel but I only had weight watchers wraps and I added some rocket mix salad and a small amount of light mayo. Yummy!

My favourite way to eat chicken is with Paprika, a little bit of garlic and a sprinkle of pepper. I added a side salad with some tomatoes and cucumber. Tomatoes and cucumber are something else I never used to like but I have just proved to myself if I continue to try things I will like them and try to wean myself off eating those naughty things!
I hope you enjoyed todays post. I have also been making youtube videos and I may start doing some what I ate videos. I would love for you to check out my channel and let me know if there are any videos you would like to see :)

Sunday Style - Lilly's OOTD


Hi everyone! I hope everyone is having a lovely bank holiday weekend and enjoying the bit of sunshine we seem to finally be having. Yesterday was sunny and a little warmer than it has been and it was perfect to start bringing out some of Lilly's spring/summer outfits.

I have started to make youtube videos and I wanted to film a OOTD of Lilly, but let me tell you it isn't as easy as it looks with a toddler! Lilly wouldn't keep still for very long and when she is out and has the freedom to run free in the park, trying to get a outfit of the day video was difficult to say the least!

I managed to edit it to look ok but im still getting used to my camera and with the sun shining brightly and two dogs to try and handle I think I was trying to do some blur out then focus kinda thing and ended up with it mainly being blury but hey Im learning :)

Lilly's outfit is mainly from Next as it seems to be my favourite place to buy Lilly's clothes from. Her top is a blue with white polka dots on and a cute little pocket with flowers coming out of it, with a button up back. The leggings are from next a couple of months ago but I did buy These dusty pink jeans to go with this outfit (which Lilly decided to get mud on when she was playing In the garden) The white frilly socks are also from next and her floral shoes are from George at asda. Her headband is from What's In Lilly's Closet

Hi everyone! I have been wanting to start youtube and vlogging for about 5 years now but I am always too nervous but I have taken the plunge and decided to try and do weekly vlogs so I can kind of document mine and Lillys life.

This one may be a little bit boring but im still trying to feel comfortable infornt of the camera and basically talking out loud to myself! I would really appreciate it If you could subscribe to my channel https://www.youtube.com/user/Lillyandme12 and im hoping to do more beauty, mummy videos once I build up some confidence haha!

Sorry about the choppy editing and random clips but it is my first vlog and I don't know how to edit so im still learning :)

Lilly's Easter Basket 2014

I cant believe its Easter already! Where is this year going?! I did a post last week on some ideas on things I was adding to Lilly's Easter basket HERE and now I finally have the basket ready and waiting for Lilly to come down in the morning.

Since my previous post I added a little bunny teddy which I bought Lilly before she was born but its one that has just been with her other teddies and I thought I could re use it although he looks a little sad in this picture. I also added a peppa pig dinner set which includes a cup, bowl, spoon and a chocolate egg which I picked up from asda. The cute little bunny ears are from Tesco and I hope to get some pictures of her wearing them but I doubt they will be on for long! I wanted to get the traditional wicker Easter basket but I found this small basket in b&m bargains and thought I could use it in Lilly's room or reuse it for other occasions and it was only £4!

I'm excited for Lilly to see this in the morning. Its waiting downstairs on our coffee table for Lilly to see when she comes downstairs. If you have made a Easter basket this year I would love to see them so please link below :)

Happy Easter everyone x

Good Friday // A Little Trip To The Zoo

Easter weekend has fallen on my birthday this year and we are trying to take full advantage and have a family filled week. We were planning on going to whipsnade zoo on Monday but looking at the weather yesterday the bank holiday weekend is in for some rain and we decided to make a last minuet plan and go yesterday whilst the sun was out. Turns out when we got there it turned cloudy and was really cold but we still had a good day.

Its the first time we have taken Lilly to a zoo. I thought she would love it however her attention span was about 5 seconds and with the busy crown and not being able to get close to the animals she was a little over it until we got into the little petting farm section. Lilly loves being able to stroke animals and was so excited to see these little miniature goats which you could stroke. We spent most of the day in here as she didn't want to leave them and thought they were cows and repeatedly said moo!

If anyone came to stoke the miniature goats she would look at them as if to say 'get away' and guard them. Whipsnade also have a big play area and lots of places to eat. Whilst we were walking around we saw these little animals ( I don't know what they are kind a big rabbit/kangaroo) and a female came out of her little burrow with 3 babies that had just been born and was also giving birth to another which was crazy to see.

A Walk In The Park...

The sun was shining today and it is starting to feel a little warmer which means its perfect for getting outdoors. I love going for family walks and taking Lilly to feed the ducks. We are lucky where we live to be surrounded by lakes and country parks where there are always lots of wildlife and new areas to explore. I'm trying to take more pictures of our little adventures and share them on here.

Lilly loves to pick daisy's. We are constantly stopping to the sound of a little voice saying 'daisy daisy' and having to pick one from every bunch for her, We came across to beautiful swans who we fed some bread to. These two swans were so calm and were reaching to get the bread out of our hands. I haven't ever really been so close to a swan I could nearly touch it but how beautiful and big are they?!

My two boys are in need of a good groom but I love this photo of rocky, he looks like he is smiling haha!
