8 Best Theme Parks And Attractions In Madrid

When you think Madrid city breaks, you probably think history museums and art galleries, architectural landmarks and fine dining. These all make it an alluring place to spend a weekend yourself, with friends, or with a partner, but with kids? You’re probably looking for something less cultural and more energetic.

Oh my goodness, hands up if you’re loving this hot weather? I definitely prefer warmer weather over the cold weather. It makes me feel happier and more at ease with life in general.

Teacher Gifts With Mantra Jewellery

To be honest I am quite glad to see the back of this school year. I really don’t know why but I feel like we need a fresh start in the motivational department. We most certainly need a break from early rushed mornings too. I’ve had various emails from the class reps about donations and cards for the teachers from …

Earning Her Brownie Hostess Badge

P1 has been a Brownie for four months now. I’ve been pretty sceptical about how long she’d stick mat it because I wasn’t a Girl Guide for long myself. However, she is thoroughly enjoying every meet they have and attends weekly. Being a Brownie is about exploring new hobbies, learning new skills and making new friends and I really think …

4 Perfect Outfits For The School Run

I am most definitely not a fashion savvy person. I throw on whatever is clean to be honest. I think my main issue is that I am so tiny, 4ft 8in tall, so I struggle to find adult clothes that actually suit my body shape and my confidence. Nearly my entire wardrobe consists of hand me downs from friends or …

Blogging, It’s More Than Just Free Products

My husband sees things the old fashioned way. When I fell pregnant with P2, he asked me to be a stay at home mum so that I could watch her grow up and be there for her every step of the way. Just like his Mum was for him and for his brother. But the thought of giving up the …

Potty Training For The Last Time With Huggies & Munchkin

We talk about cherishing every developmental first all the time as parents. That first smile, when they sat unaided for the first time, tasted their first bit of food and the day they took their first steps. But for me I think the biggest part and probably the most scary is definitely the potty training phase.  As a first time …

I have been a pretty big fan of Orchard Toys for the duration of my parenting years and probably even before that seeing as the company is over 40 years old! When I got an email to become an Orchard Toys Blogger I was pretty excited. For our first product to review we were sent the Little Bus Lotto which is part of …

Letter To My Princess 1 – 7 Years 6 Months

To my Princess 1, You are now seven and a half!! It’s crazy to think that in just half a years time you will be eight and I would have been a mummy for that long. A lot has changed I think in the past six months. I feel like we are finally starting to understand who you really are …

New Series 2 Num Noms & Unboxing Video

I tend to steer clear of the latest craze for my girls. I’m a horrible mum you see and just let them watch videos of the latest craze on YouTube. But when I was asked to create my own unboxing video for the new Series 2 Num Noms, I unashamedly got quite excited. P1 has been begging for these weird …

A Nursery Trip To Hastings

In the last few weeks I’ve been faced with a dilemma. Ultimately it felt like I was picking my favourite child because both P1 and P2 had school/nursery trips on the exact same day.  Originally my heart was set to go with P1 because in all the seven years of parenting I’ve had, I have never been on a school …

A Dinosaur Adventure At The Dinosaur Park Tenby

It was an early checkout at Bluestone last week and although you can stay on site until 3pm to enjoy all the facilities, we decided to make a move and Hubby researched some local things to do with the kids. The Dinosaur Park Tenby was just a 20 minute drive away and happened to be on our way home. My girls are …
