This month we’re…


  1. Eating… organic veg at a snip of the usual price now our local Aldi has stocked its shelves with pesticide-free greens.
  2. Listening… to Guys We F***ed. The self-proclaimed anti slut-shaming podcast hears two American comedians interview one of their former conquests each week. From one-night stands to long-term relationships and everything in between, they’re aiming to make the world a more “sex-positive” place. Obvs NSFW, I listen on my Friday pram walks and weekend batch cooking marathons to ensure Quincy doesn’t pick up any interesting new vocab (pic: Dee Guerreros).
  3. Dancing… the afternoon away at this year’s Strictly tour in Manchester. Now we’re ballroom dancers ourselves, we have even more respect for Ed Balls and his twinkletoes. This line-up also features our 2016 faves Danny Mac and Oti Mabuse, so it’s set to be a fab-u-lous occasion.
  4. Exploring… the world of cruelty-free products thanks to some top tips from a friend of ours who has set up her own blog, This Weleda baby bath makes Quincy’s skin so silky I’m planning to pinch it for my next soak.
  5. Making… our own granola for a quick and seriously YUM grab-and-go breakfast. I found this really handy hack for making it without a recipe and it’s worked a treat so far. A must for those mornings when babies and burpees threaten the most important meal of the day.
  6. Ogling… Jamie Dornan in the latest 50 Shades of Grey movie like the basic b*tches we are. We tried to feign nonchalance about the first film, tagged along anyway then found ourselves discussing it for at least 50% of a 20-mile run, so this time we’re embracing it – minus the run part (pic: Jeff Hahn)
  7. Cooking… vegan mac and cheese. I made this recipe (pic above) from Minimalist Baker last weekend – I left out the chilli and salt for a family-friendly version (and added kale for extra smugness).
  8. Dining… at V Rev vegan diner in Manchester. Their strapline “Burgs Bakes Booze – all plants, no pain” is enough to see us running for the X41 for an afternoon of indulgence.
  9. Spinning… our way to success as we take on a charity spinathon in aid of Brain Tumour Research. Find out more here (and wish us luck!).
