Mimi Asks The Blogger.

    Hi all I have started a new niche on my blog, called Mimi asks the Blogger, I have interviewed the lovely Nikki Foster who has a wonderful blog  called Nurture that Sparkle.  I hope you all enjoy it.






1, What is your name.     Nikki (Nixie) Foster

2, What is the name of your blog,    Nurture That Sparkle.com

3,  Can you tell our readers about yourself and your blog? 

     I’m a baby massage, baby yoga, mumma & infant mindfulness facilitator & a mummy to a beautiful one year old. Infant mental health and the importance of the first 1001 days of live are at the core of my enterprise. I want to support and nurture as many mummies, daddies and babies as I can. Setting the cornerstone of mental health in place and building secure, supported, nurtured, loved environments & infants will lead to loving & positive communities. You will find a nurturing, positive experience in my blog full of bonding & love for babies, Mummies and daddies.


4,  Describe how did you first get into blogging?

I am right at the beginning of my blogging journey. Three threads run strongly throughout my life 
Mindfulness 
Working with infants & their families
Writing 
I have reached a point in my life where I can pull all of these together. I want to reach as many families as possible to support them in building their own love bubbles and create a Nurture That Sparkle Tribe across the globe. I can be physically present within my community, I can be present online to a global community.


5,  What would be your ideal working environment?

 I would love to have a Nurture hub within the grounds of my home. Somewhere I can work and hold my groups that I can nurture and allow to grow organically. But, most importantly I want to be present for my baby and allow my mumterprise to grow around him and his needs.


6, How do you want to improve yourself in the next year?

 I want to have in place the mindfulness practices to be in tune with my higher self, allowing me to be the best I can.
Learning and knowledge are so important to be able to offer the nurturing supportive experience I want to be able to give mummy’s and infants, not forgetting daddies. I will have completed my diploma, open access course and linked up with organisations supporting infant and parental mental health.


7, What was your greatest failure and what did you learn from that?

  Losing myself in an abusive relationship.
I learnt I should never be ashamed of myself. Being authentic to myself allows me to help others. Stay true to my higher self, put boundaries in place and this allows me to nurture and empower others.


8,  Tell me about your proudest achievement?    My sons.


10,   Where would you like to be in blogging five years from now?

To have built a thriving Nurture That Sparkle Tribe which is empowering and nurturing communities across the globe. To have built relationships with organisations that are sharing the importance of the first 1001 days ( conception to 2 years old). Be recognised as the go to voice for nurturing, support and infant mental health.

My Messy Pasta Cupboard The Brilliant Film I Watched Last Night and Amazon Where Is My Parcel.

I went to a great pasta shop today and I stocked up on my low supply of Italian pasta, I can't stand the stuff in the Supermarket's, my Palate  being spoiled my whole life by my Italian family and their wonderful cooking. Yes I can tell when I am given supermarket pasta I am afraid you can't fool me.  Somebody who shall remain nameless was supposed to put it neatly in the Pasta Cupboard, and this is how I found it ...........................…




I watched the brilliant Dutch Film last night it was called Obsessed on Amazon Prime, it was about a family who is renovating a run down house in France and of course  lot's of things happen, I don't want to give it away but it was so good check it out if you can.


What the hell is happening with Amazon they have gone awful I ordered something a week ago got a message saying it's dispatched and then another one saying the driver has lost it. I will have to find out now what has happened to it, Ridiculous. love  Mimi 💋

Bath, Bed and Breakfast.

After a very tiring week, work work work appointment after appointment I  just want to relax and soak in the bath, go to bed in some lovely bedding I bought last weekend and have a full English Breakfast on a Saturday Morning, There is nothing like it, I have put some of the products I used below. Enjoy and Happy Weekend folks. 💋 



Bath  I used Sanctuary Spa Body Wash, it was so relaxing and the smell of sandalwood and jasmine was lovely, and the essential oils made my skin so soft. Here is the link Sanctuary spa.





Bed  I bought this bedding from Dunelm last weekend I couldn't wait to use it I think it's so pretty I love the subtle colours  you can find it here Dunelm bedding.





Breakfast  Yummy scrambled egg, sausage, beans bacon, hash brown, and a half a tomato, just what I needed, I don't eat this everyday just at the weekend sometimes or when someone lovely will make it for me.

Ten Things I Hate.

In life you can not be happy go lucky  everyday, everyone and I mean everyone has a day where multiple things go wrong, and by the evening you just think my God anything else today.
    So I have compiled a list of  ten things that get's  on my absolute nerves I am very sure most of you have one...............

1   When you are parked in the car park and two big vans park either side of your vehicle so close  so you can't  get back into your car, Oh yes this has happened to me.

2, Other dog owners who let there dogs bark late at night and early in the morning constantly, without even trying to shut them up or take them indoors. See earlier blog post.

3  Not picking up your dog's shit. and putting it in the bin.

4 When I was younger, women who thought I was hitting on there ugly boyfriend, and pulling them away from me, and telling me to stay away from them. You must be joking.

5  Balloons at weddings why oh why would you have balloons all over your reception venue, it…

Why I Hate Love Island.

I know this will not be  popular  with a lot of the  British public, but I hate ITV1's  Love Island, there I have said it. Am I the only one?  I feel on a daily basis the only one.   Last Summer this show, about lovely young men and women on an holiday island  was on and all my  female friends and some of my  family were watching it, they were fascinated, next to the photocopier they were fascinated, going out for drinks with my girlfriends all I could hear was he fancies her she snogged him, so I felt like an absolute freak when I suddenly shouted to out "I have never seen it", all heads turned and looked at me in amazement, eyes wide and mouths open, one or two heads shaking in amazement, "what" one particular friend   cried out "never?".  They were horrified I felt like I wanted the ground to swallow me up whole.
   So I must confess that night I went home put on Youtube typed in Love Island and there were lots of lots of older clips I saw one tha…
