Having A Schedule On My Blog & YouTube Channel

One of my New Year resolutions was to create more of a schedule on both my YouTube channel and my blog. Last year my blog got a bit chaotic. I was posting several times a day and then would miss a few days. Although there’s absolutely nothing wrong with that, it felt a bit messy to me. So far this …

Do Our Parents Influence Our Career Choices?

Perhaps it’s not something you’ve thought about before, but did you know that your career choices have probably been – at least in some way – influenced by your parents? Whether you’ve had happy-go-lucky parents who wanted nothing more than for you to feel satisfied, or go-getter parents who measured your success by your income and job title, there are …

Just a quick post as I want to introduce to you a wonderful company, Babymoov. A few months ago I’ll ashamedly hold my hands up and say I’d never heard of them.

Why Blogging Is A 24/7 Job

I think I was always destined to write. As a child I spent hours at a little desk in the kitchen writing stories. None of these stories were ever finished despite my dream of having a book published one day. I wish I still had the hundreds of sheets of paper that I went through. Really I am still writing …

Many mums face a great dilemma after having children: to go back into full-time work or be a full-time stay-at-home parent. It is never an easy decision to make, especially when money is tight.

“I was always rubbish at doing homework on time”

When I look back on my school years, I was quite academic. I actually enjoyed school and the topics I found interesting I did well in like Art. But I was always rubbish at doing homework on time. I’d get so many lunch time detentions or after school ones because of homework related issues. I generally suffer with organisation so …

“I treated them to a naughty sugar treat”

Parents that are riddled with illness or pregnancy (hubby with the illness, me with the pregnancy) make pretty boring parents. That’s what it has felt like last weekend and most of this week anyway. Hubby has caught the cold that P2 and I had last week only whenever hubby catches a cold it seems to morph into a chest infection …

Milkshake! Stars DVD Review & Competition

Milkshake starts at 6am every morning and is only on until 9am but houses some pretty awesome childhood favourites for me, like Mr Men, Thomas The Tank Engine and Fireman Sam to name a few. Both my girls really enjoy watching Milkshake as I think the shows are more catered for the younger viewers. On the 8th September 2014, Milkshake! …

15/31: My Dream Travel List

I haven’t really been to very many places so far so my dream destination list is pretty big. I cannot see myself visiting many of them any time soon due to kids and finances but I suppose that’s why it’s a dream list. 1) Canada. Hubby has family out there and I’ve heard so many stories that make me want …

14/31: Why Do You Blog?

Today’s prompt is “why do you blog?” and I had actually started writing a post like this a week or so ago but ended up deleting it. It just didn’t sound right. Hopefully this time it does. I’ve technically been blogging since 2011 but that first blog I created was very basic and actually quite depressing to read over. Although …

I’m A Fisher-Price Mum!

Fisher-Price has always been a much loved brand in my life right from when I was a child. When my blog was just 4 months old I was approached by the lovely team at Fisher-Price to review for them.
