Christmas Gift Guide for Mums to Be - 2021 edition

Thursday, 25 November 2021

Hello my lovelies! If you have followed Oh So T for a while you will know that Steve and I are expecting our first baby in literally less than 26 days. A boxing day baby is all fun and games until you remember you had promised yourself you would do Blogmas and complete it for the first time ever... I know expecting a baby is the perfect excuse to say "No, it just is not possible" but then I promised myself I would see this challenge through and I intend to do just that! 

So kicking off my first post of Blogmas, I thought I would share a little gift guide for you all but specifically tailored for pregnant women! I know how difficult it was when I was for a thoughtful gift for Cousin last year and I wanted to get something for her that was not baby related. Trust me that individual in your life will be inundated with gifts for baby and Mum can sometimes be left by the wayside. However, Mum might be happy to have things purchased for baby as baby things are EXPENSIVE, and I really cannot stress just how expensive things get because the word 'maternity' or 'baby' has been put in front of it... Seriously, even underwear trebles in price when the word 'maternity' is added (a top tip here - just size up, it is much much much cheaper). 

Sunday Roast at the Axe and Cleaver | Oh So T food

Sunday, 5 September 2021

If you have followed Oh So T for a while, you will know that this is a place where I talk about food... A lot! One of my favourite things to do is go out for dinner with family and friends and sharing a good Sunday Roast is no exception. 

Now I love cooking my own Sunday roast - Chicken, Beef, Turkey and we've even had Guinea Fowl (that was an unusual one to be fair), but since being pregnant spending hours on my feet in the kitchen is not ideal or my idea of fun these days. Not to mention the horrendous swollen sweet and cankles I get whenever I spend too long stood up.  

Hard Rock Cafe - 50th Anniversary Celebrations

Sunday, 15 August 2021


Earlier this week we attended our first PR trip with Baby Randell on board! We were kindly invited to Hard Rock Cafe at the Printworks in Manchester - admittedly one of my favourite Hard Rock Cafe locations and we've been to a few. It's an accidental tradition of mine to hunt a Hard Rock Cafe down whilst abroad, check out their menu and hunt for a hidden gem or difference to what the UK has to offer.

Best ever Banana Bread Recipe

Monday, 22 March 2021

Well we're still in lockdown! I mean has there been any point within the last 10 months when Manchester hasn't had some form of lockdown restriction imposed upon it? 

I have exhausted all takeaway coffee venues, every walking route and have ran out of home decorating options. To relieve my boredom we needed to go all out... It was finally time to learn how to bake!
