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 …

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 …

#BratzFest With The New Bratz Festival Vibes Collection

It is festival season and to celebrate we were sent one of the new Bratz Festival Vibes Collection doll to get us in the mood. To be honest I have never been to a festival but have always loved the look of them. It’s great that they actually do special kids festivals now too which I think is amazing. P1 was …

My Sunday Photo 2016 – #25/52

I’ve only just realised I missed last weeks photo which is really bad. We were in Bluestone having a really lovely break. We had hired a golf buggy on the Sunday so spent most of our day on that exploring the grounds and having loads of fun family time. This Sunday we have spent the entire day in London. We …

Jungle Craft #BostikBloggers

Normally when my Bostik box arrives I plan an activity for the kids to create so that it’s more adult led and they can focus a bit better. But this time I handed over the reigns to my seven year old. Getting crafty keeps her calm when she’s having a bit of a bad behaviour day. I think it helps …

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 …

Insjo Saimaa Sweet Peach bagINbag Review

I am slowly venturing into the world of having my own handbag. For seven years I have sported the changing bag look, and despite there being many very fashionable versions out there, I’ve never owned one. But the girls are getting bigger and needing much less when we head out of the house so it’s about time I start to …

A Weekend At Bluestone Wales

We’ve had an incredibly stressful few weeks with car troubles. Having to rent a car for two weeks and the garage messing us around big time. I was extremely welcome of an email from Bluestone Wales inviting me along to a last minute weekend break. Although we had no car, this was an offer I couldn’t refuse and we really …
