Festive in black – my fave

Now I'm somebody that doesn't get to dress up very often at all. You get the gist, I lead such an exciting life that getting dolled up is few and far between. Normally, I'm the one that is sifting (and I use that term loosely) through magazines looking at all of the pretty Christmas party

My blogging MUST HAVES

Some of these items I have and some I am in need of and besides all the bigger purchases like cameras etc, these are some essentials that I think need a mention. A planner First up is an amazing planner, a planner that will turn my life around. I'm still waiting for that planner but

Present buying for the man in your life?

Eek it's mid November already and I've only just started to think about what I might get the most awkward person ever to buy for - my husband! Each year it gets a little more difficult to choose items (as if it wasn't hard enough already) and I have to start to think 'outside the

Mumsnet Influencers – Nailing what a conference should be

It’s been many years since I have attended a blogging conference. There have been various reasons as to why I haven’t been to one since 2011 (the very year I started!) but I am so pleased that I decided to attend this one. Mumsnet hosted their very first Influencers event and it truly surpassed all

Our Halloween 2017

So that's it, Halloween done for another year. This year was the first year that Georgie actually joined in with the trick or treating around our neighbourhood. Last year, she just donned a little cat costume and stayed indoors! However a year on she wanted to go out with the big kids and she actually

Enjoying the outdoors with Bassetts Multivitamins #NoDullDays

Autumn has to be our favourite time as a family for getting outdoors. The summertime is obviously great for spending more time outside when it's warmer but it needn't stop as the weather starts to get colder.  Now is perfect before it gets too chilly and you can really appreciate all of the colourful surroundings

Undley Farm Pumpkin Patch and Maize Maze

For a couple of years now, I've been meaning to take my kids to a pumpkin patch ahead of the Halloween celebrations. I searched and searched last year and all that was local to us in Buckinghamshire, were some barns piled up with pumpkins to buy but none involved visiting an actual patch. Luckily for

The day I made my own Big Mac #YourNewMcDonalds

Recently I went to visit the McDonald’s at Norwich airport where along with a group of other bloggers we were given a guided tour of the new facilities available and given the opportunity to make our very own Big Mac. I haven’t actually been into one of their restaurants for quite a while and it's

Your very own Shiatsu Massager in your home

Ever felt like you really need a good shoulder and back massage but there is literally no one around or willing to give you one? This is where a massager is worth its weight in gold. Over the years, I've always been prone to pulling my neck, so anything that claims to help with tension

Learning to tell the time with an Ice-Watch

Learning to tell the time has been a pretty big topic in our house lately. Mainly because our eldest son who is 8, still hasn't fully got to grips with it. Besides it being a pretty good idea to be able to tell the time at 8, it's also becoming an issue when the boys

Autumn update: The reading nook

Now that the weather has started to turn a bit nippy, my thoughts quickly turn to how I can make home that little bit cosier. The candles come straight out, along with all the throws and fairy lights. I love this time of year before it really starts to get cold, but the nights are

A playhouse of dreams for a two year old

When I was little, I would have been thrilled to have had a big proper 'wendy house' in my garden.  A place to indulge my inner homebody and let my creativity run wild. A playhouse in the garden is something that all kids will appreciate and acts as a little haven that they can call

Why we love Lanzarote for a family holiday

Last year we went on our first proper holiday as five and it was most definitely one of those holidays that will stay with us for a long time.  We hadn't anticipated going anywhere at all but we were fortunate enough to be gifted some money from a family member and we knew that a

An ombré cake to celebrate Georgie turning 2

I'm a little late, as usual, but I wanted to share some pictures of Georgie shortly after she turned two. We were away for her birthday and although it was lovely to be spending her special day on holiday, it also meant that I couldn't make her a birthday cake as I do each year.

Are you brave enough to change your hair styles?

As a little girl I was blonde and gradually throughout my teens my hair started to darken to a dark blonde/light brown colour. Then somewhere along the line, I found hair dye and started to lighten my hair and that then became the norm for me. I mainly used home dye kits and on the

An outfit for a girl with brothers

We're at that funny time of the year where it's still summer but things are beginning to get wrapped up for Autumn arriving. I've always hated the fact that you might not have yet had your summer holiday but the shops are already clearing out all of the summer clothes, making way for clothes designed

Travel: An Italian Family Holiday

Family holidays are very important, they offer an often much needed opportunity to step away from the every day routine and allow families to spend some real quality time together and create lovely memories. Nonetheless, there are different families in different situations- meaning that a summer holiday might not be doable for everyone, or perhaps

Review: The Silver Cross Avia Stroller

We've had over eight years of using a pushchair now and we've tried a few in that time. The time when you use a pushchair is both a blessing and a curse. In the early days, it's crucial for getting your precious little newborn around then it's needed for those trips out and about when
