Reflecting On A Year Of Nursery

It’s that time of the year when suddenly we realise there’s just a few weeks or even days left of the schooling year. It terrifies me every year but for some reason I’m feeling a lot more sentimental this time round as we wave goodbye to P2s very first year of nursery. I love her nursery and the setting has …

Trutex School Uniform Review

One thing we have noticed about P1s personality and possibly due to autism, is that she finds clothing extremely uncomfortable and especially school uniform. Because let’s face it, who ever felt comfortable wearing their uniform?! Now this is thinking quite far in advance really but we were sent some Trutex school wear to review and you can find your local …

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 …

How Much Should I Feed My Toddler? #rethinktoddlerportionsizes

I have always had concerns when it comes to what my daughters eat in a day. P1 is such a skinny little thing but tends to eat an incredible quantity of food so we were referred to a dietitian who assured us that we were doing the right thing. But more recently I have been faced with other worries surrounding …

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 …

My Experience Of #BML16

At 7:30am last week I was stood with Hubby at the train station after leaving our smallest baby in the car with my MiL. It was the first time we’d ever left her overnight before so both of us were pretty nervous. In fact I felt quite sick and had barely eaten from nerves but also excitement because we were …

Letts Wild About Books & Giveaway

For the first time in a while I actually feel content with the amount of effort I am putting in to my girls educations. I recently bought some really useful age appropriate learning books for P2 which she has really enjoyed doing. But I think the best book we have ever tried has got to be the brand spanking new …

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 …

I’m A DryNites Ambassador!

Behind the scenes in my blogging life I have been in deep conversations with the team at DryNites and that’s because this year I was chosen, along with a few others, to become a DryNites Ambassador for 2016. I feel so incredibly excited about the opportunity as even though P2 has been fully dry in the day for well over a …

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 …

10 Things I Learnt At #BML16

If you follow me on social media you will know that I spent my weekend in London specifically to attend the UKs biggest blogging and social media conference. This was my third year of attending the conference and I’ve come to realise it doesn’t matter how what sessions I attend, I always come away inspired. I am writing a full post …

Orchard Toys Little Bus Lotto Review

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 …
