About Me

Hello there and welcome to my blog!  I’m Denise and I am a food, lifestyle and parenting blogger living in Aberdeenshire. I started this little corner of t’internet away back in 2013 doing mainly food, lifestyle and craft posts but in February 2018 I finally became a Mummy to a little boy after 14 years and 6 IVFs so you will also find some parenting posts on here too.


About me

I love writing and used to love taking photographs back in the day when you had to take the camera rolls to get developed (remember those days when you had to wait a whole week to see how embarrassing the photos were!!) but for one reason or another I stopped.  I have fallen back in love with photography again and really enjoy taking images of people, food, products and buildings.  I am very rarely without my camera as you never know when you will catch a magical moment.


So what can you find on The Life of Dee?



You will find recipes that are mainly gluten and dairy free (I am slowly updating the ones that aren’t to become gf and df), some vegan and even Slimming World friendly ones.  Also there are posts of places where I have eaten in.

My lifestyle posts are a combination of How Tos, hauls, things to do plus many, many more.  Love Halloween and Christmas? Me too! You will find quite a few Halloween and Christmas craft, recipe and lifestyle posts on here also.

What I’m Loving In.......... The Body Shop Oils of Life Sleeping Cream


Although I had planned to document my pregnancy through my blog in the end it never happened due to having the Worst. Pregnancy. Ever! Gestational diabetes, Pre-eclampsia and Pneumonia are just a few of the things I suffered from so there are only a couple of pregnancy related post.  However you can find posts about how to save money on baby things, what’s in my changing bag, the reality of being a mum is….. etc.
