Bedroom update ideas for a 3 year old girl

I love Georgie's bedroom and she's fairly lucky in the fact that it's a decent size. She has plenty of room for her furniture, toys and a decent sized space in the centre of the room for her to play. Her cot bet is designed to last until age 5 but already I can see

Urban Villa Boutique Hotel – a Date Night

We were recently invited to stay at Urban Villa in West London. It's a boutique style hotel with the luxury of staying in rooms that are apartments, rather than just 'rooms'. Initially we were asked to bring along the kids for the night and take the opportunity to see some of London's attractions whilst there,

Simple ways to help you sleep better

I don't know about you but I'm always on the look out for ways to help me sleep better. Sometimes it's about keeping things simple but occasionally you need something a little extra to help you drift off. So in my quest to get a better nights sleep, I've been doing some research into what

Our Coastal Adventure along the Norfolk Coast

We still have so much of Norfolk that we need to visit and we know that we're very spoilt for choice with the coastline around here. So when Parkdean Resorts got in touch wanting to work with us on their Coastal Adventures campaign to help promote Britain's coastline, we knew that this was the perfect

Creating an outdoor space on a budget

We've now lived in our current house for over 18 months and it's only recently that I've got around to making the outdoor space into something that we can relax in. Primarily we focused on getting the kids equipment to play on and a place to relax was simply put on the back burner. I've

Review: The Simba Hybrid Mattress

We've now been sleeping on our new Simba Hybrid Mattress for nearly a month and it's most definitely time to be sharing with you our thoughts on it. I'm not someone that can just sleep anywhere and we've stayed away countless times only for me to hate the mattresses. They're either too soft or too

Real Food Kids Will Love with Annabel Karmel

This is my fourth Annabel Karmel book so you could say that I'm somewhat of a fan.  From weaning to the stage we are at now, (where we all eat the same) her recipes have always been such a great source of inspiration. When your little ones are babies you tend to cater more for

The added bonuses of child-free trips away

Next month we have a couple of trips where will be staying away without the kids. I've mentioned this before, but this isn't something we do very often at all! So for it to happen twice in one month is a real treat and will be a shock to the system. One of the things

Who I’m loving on Instagram lately

I don't spend as much time looking on Instagram as I should do. By that I mean, looking at it purely for the enjoyment of seeing other peoples photos, the way that it always used to be. Back in the early days when we all use to use those terrible filters and borders - when

5 books I’ve read this year…

You wouldn't know it these days but I love reading and would happily hang out in book shops if I had the chance (anyone else like the smell of brand new books?).  Not only are they great for a little bit of escapism but I feel that they're good for my soul and with each

The Dominican Republic – Part 2

I never need an excuse to look back through holiday photos, so actually writing up posts on our trips away is not only lovely to write but it's also me documenting the things that we got up to, that I will most likely forget in years to come. The boys are still talking about our

Top 30 things that Brits are likely to forget

Do you ever find yourself wondering how on earth you manage to get through some days in one piece? I’m sure most modern mums have found themselves overwhelmed at some point or another. I certainly have. I’m not talking about baby burnout since my kids are school age now, rather that classic angst feeling, when

Travelling with Cabin Zero bags

I don't know about you, but I'm always ill prepared with bags when we go on trips away. When it came to planning our recent trip abroad, I knew that I needed to make sure for starters that I would be more organised with my carry on luggage. It used to be so simple when

Our trip to the Dominican Republic – Part 1

It’s crazy to think that it’s been over two weeks already since we returned from our holiday to the Dominican Republic. It was our first holiday abroad with the kids that was long haul and the distance on the flight initially made me a little apprehensive about how they'd (and we'd) cope. In my quest

My water confidence and fitness

As you may already be aware, I've been attempting a bit of a fitness overhaul at the moment. However, one recurrent theme seems to stay with me and that is the fact that getting fit can be so boring. Not only can it be boring but it's also a lot of hard work and the

Holiday edit: Beach and pool essentials

Now I have a tendency to want to go a bit overboard when it comes to planning holiday clothes and accessories. Although I'm aware that it's kind of an unecessary expense, shopping for new bits and pieces is what I really love about the preparations for going away. I always find it easiest to browse

Flamingo love with Gingersnap

Neon lights always add something to a room and Gingersnap have a great choice of lamps to brighten up your home. If I were to choose my favourite neon shade, then it would without a doubt be pink! It looks the most effective with it's lovely warm glow and naturally works perfectly with flamingoes. I
