At 8 months pregnant I thought it was a bit risky to position me (a chocoholic) and the Mama Rules stall next to the Norah's Brownies stall where I first met Leah (Norah is her eldest daughters name) at a Christmas Market. Not only are her brownies delicious but Leah is super cool too. She definitely kept me entertained and I enjoyed several delicious brownies too. Her brownies are naturally free of gluten, dairy and refined sugars but don't skimp on flavour. As we are coming up to the chocolate season I thought it would be great if Leah answered our 'It's All About You' interview.

Essential item for motherhood survival:
Variety of bribes, you don’t want to role out the same ones otherwise they don’t work. Start small and build them up, then make them big. For example start with peppa pig then work up to full feature film when desperate.

Most embarrassing motherhood moment:
This is hard, But one that sticks out is when Lola stripped off in the park so I said I would take her home if she didn’t put her clothes back on .

Lola often says “ mummy remember when you kicked the taxi and he shouted at you ? “ Yes Lola I remember all too well
