Needing New Boots For Adventures

My boots are probably over 4 years old now. They are battered, they are peeling, they are scratched, the heels are wearing down and I’m pretty sure that there are holes in them underneath as my feet get wet. These boots are always the shoes I wear when we go out anywhere for adventures or long days out. They have …

Mamas & Papas, Joules & Little Green Radicals – A Kids Clothing Haul

I must confess that I don’t really buy P2 or P3 any new clothing. The clothing they wear each day are either second hand, gifted by family or friends and hand me downs from P1. This month has been an exciting one for P2 and P3s wardrobes. We’ve been lucky to receive some gift cards and clothes to review that …

I want to be a woman not just a mum!

Last year my hubby bought me a subscription to the Cosmopolitan magazine. I was given a choice as to what I wanted but I chose this one because I wanted something separate from the topic of parenting. I’ve never been into fashion, makeup or girly things. I’ve always worn whatever the heck was in my wardrobe which has either been …

Would You Get Your Child’s Ears Pierced?

Earing piercing in children is certainly a contraversial topic. It’s been labelled as child abuse and parents that get their children’s ears pierced are very openly abused themselves with hurtful comments. I’m one of those parents. I had P1s ears pierced at 6 months old, I wanted her to have the choice of whether she wanted to wear earrings as …

“I’m uber excited about a new lifestyle and a new me”

If you follow me on Instagram or Twitter you’ll know that I’ve decided to change my appearance. Since giving birth to P3 I’ve felt quite low about the way my body is. I discussed this with hubby and he jokingly said I should dye my hair blonde as a change. This idea played on my mind. I’ve been blonde before, …

My 1st Years Personalised Pink Newborn Gifts Set Review

(This review was written during my pregnancy with P3. Currently the outfit is still too big for her but I will be adding updated photos as soon as I can) Compared to my previous two pregnancies I’ve been very delayed in getting things ready. Most likely because I have two children who occupy my every thought for every day. I …

“I’m at the stage where I can’t find anything to wear”

I’m at that stage where getting dressed is the biggest drama of the day. Not just because I have to hop in and out of the shower whilst juggling a maternity pad, leaking boobs, a toddler and a newborn baby. But it’s the getting dressed bit that’s upsetting. I’m at the stage where I can’t find anything to wear. It’s …

George at Asda Light Denim Shorts Review

I love shopping for the girls clothes in supermarkets. George at Asda particularly have a lovely range for children’s clothes for an excellent price but I rarely get myself anything in the supermarket. We were recently sent some denim shorts to review. Obviously, I’m pregnant at the moment so I can’t actually do the shorts up right now, but funny …

“The result was what I’d feared”

We have an outbuilding. It’s a building with electricity and water. It’s quite large. It houses our freezer, our washing machine and the tumble dryer. Lately, it’s also been our dump spot. Everyone has one. Usually it’s a drawer or a cupboard we just throw things into a pretend that it’ll get sorted later or next week, or even next …

18/31: What Do You Collect?

Today’s prompt was a bit difficult. What do you collect? I don’t have a secret stash of stamps somewhere, or buttons or elastic bands for that matter. The one thing I do have quite a few of and am quite passionate about is nail varnish. My collection is quite limited but it’s something I’m always growing and really appreciate receiving …
