Memory Skills: Why It’s Better To Use A Notepad Than A Computer

When was the last time you wrote anything by hand? Perhaps you’re one of those people who leaves scribbled ‘to-do’ lists on sticky notes at work. If so, you might be in the minority – many of us are using technology more and more frequently instead. Apps like ‘Wunderlist’ are perfect for jotting down the groceries we need to pick …

Halloween Half Term – A Microbreak With Marriott Hotels In The UK

We have had a pretty insane October Half Term. We kick started our adventures with a chance to discover our #WeekendSelf with Marriott Hotels. We were invited to have a microbreak. I can imagine a microbreak without children being pretty chilled out, but for us at the moment we needed a place to explore that was both fun for adults …

Bratz Insta-Pets Doll Review

I recently got the pleasure of being insulted by an older man for the job that I have. Apparently social media and the internet is ruining the world. But quite frankly I believe it’s enhancing the world and that’s why I do what I do. Kind of. But also, I don’t really think you can hide away from social media …

Our Last Update With DryNites

We have come to an end of our DryNites journey. For the past few months we have had the help of the DryNites team and they have given us so many useful tools to help conquer P2s bed wetting phase. I got to go on a sleep retreat. I learned new techniques. We’ve had the opportunity to put DryNites Pyjama …

We’re Off On A Dream Holiday To Orlando

I get sent blogging opportunities near enough daily. Some are just not of interest, some are fun and some are so dreamy you feel a little giddy about them. A few weeks ago, I was amongst hundreds who applied to go on a blog trip to Orlando and I felt there really was no chance in hell that my little …

The Cheeky Elf Review

When I was a child Christmas meant a time for Father Christmas to bring presents. On Christmas Eve we would set out the plate for him; a mince pie, some milk and a carrot for Rudolph. We’d then pretend to be asleep for as long as possible before our eyes forced it upon us. I remember waking up before it …

Georgie The Interactive Puppy Review

If you were to ask P2 what pet she’d love to have, her answer will always be “I want a Chihuahua”. Whenever she looked a photos of different dogs it would always be the little chihuahuas that caught her attention and that’s when she learnt the breed and ultimately has fallen in love. We don’t have a garden at the …

Siblings 2016 – October

We are well and truly in Autumn now. For some reason I feel that family life is a lot harder during the colder months. It’s so much more planning and prepping just to step outside your house. Do we need wellies? Do we need coats? What kind of coat, a big thick one or a nice thin rain mac? It’s …

Num Noms Lipgloss Truck Playset Review

When we recently went to Bella Italia for a Num Noms Event, the girls got to play with the Num Noms Lipgloss Truck Playset and they loved it. I was really pleased when we received one after the event to review. P3 got to play with it first but I loved seeing the reactions of the other two. Num Noms are really …

Golden Bear Sleep Tight All Night Iggle Piggle Review

It’s no secret that we have one child that really struggles with sleep. P2 will be four years old in February and I think I can probably count the amount of times she’s ever slept through on my fingers and toes. It has come to light that it’s actually just us that she doesn’t sleep for, she’s fine with my …

My 24th Birthday At Bewl Water

Since becoming a Mum my birthdays do not feel as significant. Apart from the fact I am getting older, my birthday just feels like a normal day. I wake up with the kids early, I get them breakfast, get them ready for wherever they are going that day. However, this year I invited my Grandad along for my birthday and …

A 2nd Birthday Cake Smash

Last year, just before P3 turned one, I decided to throw her a cake smash round my Grandad’s house. He has such a pretty garden and it was the perfect and most relaxed place to hold something I had never done before. It was a little bit disastrous and cake had to be manipulated by adults for P3 to show …

Feber Dareway Review – A Mini Segway For Kids

I am going to open this post by saying that my girls are officially spoilt by my blogging life. When I saw the biggest box ever arrive at our door, I knew exactly what it was, the Feber Dareway. The girls saw exactly what it was from the packaging on the side of the box too. It was hard to …
