Back To School Dramas Sorted With Kickers!

Our beloved older daughter kindly reminded us a few days ago, with less than a week left until school begins, that her current school shoes were too tight for her. We’d been so consumed by the fact P2 was starting big school for the first time that we’d neglected the fact we had another one who was going up a …

What’s In My Bag, The Mummy Edition

I really enjoy watching What’s In My Bag videos on YouTube. It’s a simple way to be nosy but also to get some ideas. Sometimes I am literally shocked at the amount of stuff people have in their bags. A whole makeup kit or enough nappies to last a week. I just don’t think it is necessary and I have …

Doing Makeup On My Three Year Old

There’s no hiding from the fact my Hubby is extremely outnumbered. He’s even begun to pick pink or girly things from shops over a more masculine version. Like pink shower gel instead of a green or blue for example. I love that I have daughters. I have visions of shopping, spa days and afternoon teas when they are older. I …

Cath Kidston Launches New Range In Specsavers

Growing up I always went to the same opticians. I always saw the same man there and he was pretty amazing. Diagnosing my eye problems much earlier than they usually can as I was very young. I used to take my little caterpillar toy along with me and run up and down the waiting room. I was remembered for that …

For those of you who don’t know, BBC Children In Need is a UK charity. Since 1980 it has raised over £600 million to change the lives of disabled children and …

Malcolm & Gerald Personalised Children’s Clothing Review

In October last year we were sent some personalised clothing items from Malcolm & Gerald and since then P1s pink jumper has been a firm favourite when the weather is a little chilly. I couldn’t say no when I was asked to try out some more bits for the kids as the quality has been really satisfactory. We were sent three …

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 …

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 …

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 #MomsDayOffContest With Crocs

I spend every second of my day doing something child related. I also nearly always have our youngest attached to my leg, hip or holding my hand because she’s a definite Mummy’s girl at the moment. To find time for myself I used to go to a fitness class but motivation for that has disappeared and so it’s become a …

World Book Day 2016

The influx of happy children dressed up as their favourite book characters over social media can only mean one thing, it’s world book day! A day for celebrating books and reading. Personally, I am a lover of a physical book over an online edition, which do you prefer? I can’t remember what characters I used to go as at school. …

Needing New Boots For Adventures

My boots are probably over 4 years old now. They are battered, they are peeling, they are scratched, the heels are wearing down and I’m pretty sure that there are holes in them underneath as my feet get wet. These boots are always the shoes I wear when we go out anywhere for adventures or long days out. They have …

How To Make An Angel Outfit From A Pillowcase

When I googled how to make P2s nativity costume I was surprised to actually be stuck for finding any tutorials. It was probably the places I was looking or I’m just a blind bat, but I took Pinterest photos for inspiration and made it up as I went along. I am actually so pleased with the result, she’s an Angel …
