You know where it’s at!! Heellloo! Hellooo!! Hope you’re well! Hope you’re feeling wonderful! I obviously didn’t do very well at posting everyday, but in my defence Ruby & Junior (The Wunna Babies have been tending to homeschool through the week…SO, obviously I’ve been helping them through their work, which has been whizzed over by their teachers. It’s exhausting but I’m LOVING it. (I never EVER take the time I spend with them for granted. The babies are my WORLD. I don’t know what I’d do without them.)
Okay. A lot has happened since my last post. See! Things like this always happen to me. I luckily feel like I haven’t had time to be bored, because wonders keep appearing out of nowhere. It hasn’t been that long…but the craziest things have landed in my lap.
If you’re following my socials…(I’m not using my FB…just to reiterate,) you will know that I woke up ‘fresh as a daisy’ on Saturday morning , plonked on my kimono, brewed a deliciously comforting PG Tips (I’ve quit drinking coffee by accident ) and a letter was wedged in my box FROM KENSINGTON PALACE!!!!!!!!!!!
From THE PALACE!!!!!!!
When things like this happen, I get really excited because…well…life feels all ‘you shall go to the ball.’ It’s almost like a magical fairytale. I always say that there’s lots of pieces to my personality…I can be a bit bouji, a bit gangsta, a bit artsy, a bit posh, a bit kind, a bit sassy, a bit gentle, a bit fun, a bit sharp…but Saturday morning…I was a bit Princessy!!!
I frolicked around the home twirling and whirling with glee…in my Yorkshire kimono…lol….a Cinderella singing. Well, until Junior requested extra beans on sausages on his breakfast. That brought me back with a thud. (I forgot that I cook things now and Junior eats CONSTANTLY!!! I’ve never cooked so much IN MY ENTIRE LIFE!!! Lol)
Anyway, back to me being Princessy…Even the envelope feels all ‘Royal’ with a Buckingham palace post mark, stamped upon it.
Long story short…you may know that Ru & Ju spent their Christmas Eve giving out food and gifts to the homeless on the streets of Leeds and Doncaster.
They received lots of support…Not just from all the radio stations, Capital, the BBC, some of the local and national press…But from YOU… all the school mums that put in money to support their cause…all the local businesses that donated food & clothes…EVERYONE!
Earlier in the year the children received a letter from ‘Her Majesty, The Queen.’ (They’ve actually had two.) We’re penpals with Sandringham House aka The Palace now. Lol.
Yesterday, my letter was from The Duke & Duchess of Cambridge…Prince William and Kate, who heard about Ruby and Junior’s charity work…were so ‘touched by their efforts and selflessness’ ….That they wanted to personally thank me for raising such beautiful awareness in young children…They are accidentally the youngest children in Britain to have done this. Who knew? And also honour the children with sincere gratitude and love for setting such a beautiful example…
Then from this kindness.. TRULY .AMAZING, things happened…..
So… we’re all a little shocked. Yet, exceedingly happy and of course…can’t tell you anything about it yet…
Simply because parts of the content, of the letter are confidential.
But what a morning!!!! I mean on Friday I was ‘Beyonce’ for Tiktok, and grilling endless sausages for Junior. Then by Saturday I was buddies with The Royals, the next day. As if I got a letter from Prince William! Lol.
Today I’m JLO…and I mean that on a level. I said I was never in my life going to do a Tik Tok. Don’t know why because my actual job is performance? Lol
It began quite tame…with the ‘Do, DO, doooo’ arm, hip wiggle trend….That was last weekend. I did it with the kids!
It began with the babies doing the ‘Don’t Rush’ Challenge, because of Toby!. Then I went on Tiktok to edit my Ugly Water and Candy Kittens videos on.
Both great brands btw. Candy Kittens are the yummiest, yet healthiest sweets in all of the land. We order boxes of them into Wunna Land.
They contain no gluten, no bad stuff, no artificial flavours…They’re just, yummy, yet FUN…natural sweets. (They’re family friendly, but also approved by ‘Vogue’ and ‘Glamour.’ So do not get it twisted. They’re stylish AND founded by the lovely Jamie Laing.)
They’re our absolute favourite Candy. They’re incredibly morerish. Yet the wonderful thing about the Candy Kitten sweeties is that they’re a delightfully TASTING, HEALTHIER option. You’re definitely not chewing on rubber mush. I mean, they even have a specialised vegan recipe.
We have a family link, to a discount code… It’s below:
Please do use the link to receive 25% off your order. If you’re already a Candy Kitten orderer…feel free to use it for that extra money off. If you’re a newbie and just fancy a first taste…it’s perfect. Go! Go! Go!!!!
Now, i’ll tell you about Ugly Water! @uglydrinks_uk
I’m a huge sparkling water fan. I don’t drink enough of it and wanted to hydrate more. Yet I hate the dullness of going to the tap or even just buying bottled water at a petrol station. I find it so lifeless. Lol.
So I needed to make hydrating bouji & fun…I’ve noticed that when I do, I enjoy drinking more water and so do the children!
Our cupboards and fridges are filled with the trendiest most updated snacks, treats and drinks…(all of which are healthy) and it really does keep things exciting…almost precious.
We started ordering Ugly Water Deliveries that we recently found on Insta. Everyone was shouting about it. It delivers straight to your doorstep. ( I like that. As you know I enjoy little life luxuries.) Great through isolation. It’s great QUALITY sparkling water, with NATURAL fruit flavours. There’s NO artificial flavourings, no CALORIES, no SUGAR! It’s a fun way to hydrate…Especially if you’re drinking a lot and forgetting your essential water sips. (I always forget my essential water sips.)
It tastes great and actually tastes different to all the other sparkling water brands, that I’ve tried. It’s way up there when it comes to quality. The kids love it. I love it. It comes in triple berry, lemon & lime, peach and tropical. It’s also vegan and DONATES to the ‘Girl Up’ campaign & Oceanic Global. (Meaning it’s packaging is Earth friendly!)
So you should definitely try the delivery service out because you couldn’t subject yourself to any more ‘do gooding,’ via a single Ugly Water sip! It’s basically great karma…that you don’t get from your tap or other bottled waters.
Here’s the website link for you..
Of course, I made a video!!! Here’s that too!!!
What was I saying…? I’m now trying to be some Tiktok Queen. Lol. It’s literally a case of ‘Mums gone nuts.’ However, I’m finding learning these dance routines and challenges really fun. I feel freeeeee!!!
I mean during isolation, I’ve noticed that I like to challenge myself…sort of push the boundaries a little more. Y’know do the things, that I reckon I can’t do that easily…in hope for some kind of positive improvement.
I think I was a bit scared to do a dancey Tik Tok Challenge…Again…I don’t know why? I mean, if loads of other people across the WORLD are doing them, then why can’t I? I’m a confident person.
So then I had to break a barrier…because I hate that feeling of not daring to do something because I feel too challenged or insecure.
That’s why I did one. Fair enough I chose Beyoncé.. Not necessarily the easiest of challenges…but again not too difficult .
I DID IT!!! I flippin’ Did it!
Even the kids (who always want to prank for video bomb EVERY single video I do. Haha. ) Even THEY stood there with their little half Asian mouths in shock…
So I’m proud. I’m happy. Wunna Land is filled with love and life! It’s just such a beautiful time for me. A time that I can enjoy with my babies and have fun doing the silliest challenges to make memories.
I’m on Day 20 of no alcohol!!!!! Day 20!!!!! Not a single wine is currently running through my system…which is a miracle for me!!!! I feel like I need to get passed a month because everyone does a month when they do a ‘Dry Jan’ or ‘Sober October,’ don’t they? So I’m gonna try and overboard smash it!!!
Longest detox EVER!!!
But like I said, I’m properly busy right now because I’m JLO today lol and attempting the ‘JLO Super Bowl’ Challenge. The body popping, hoochie one!!! I love it!!! It’s fun! What I like about Tiktok is that it has brought so many people together during this crazy time. That alone is both beautiful & rewarding!
(I have a lot to promote this next week …So be prepared…these blogs are gonna fire out like confetti blasts. I have two movies to promote also…So it’s not all play. 😉 )
Anyway…Watch my Beyoncé Challenge attempt. I loved it! So hopefully it’ll inspire you to dip your toe in scarier waters! Haha.
Okay! Love you! Please do try to enjoy your time in lockdown. From the bottom of my heart whether your with family, loved ones, friends or alone…Ruby, Junior & I send you all our love.
