Blogger Twitter Chats

By on March 8, 2017

I’ve taken part in different twitter chats for bloggers for a while now and something I noticed, was that even though there were some twitter chat infographics out there, I struggled to keep up with some still. None of them featured parenting chats (or at least, none that I’ve found). So I took it upon myself to create one with all chats I know of whether that be for beauty bloggers, lifestyle bloggers, parenting bloggers, fashion bloggers, book bloggers and more.

Our New Favourite Teething Toy: Matchstick Monkey Review

By on February 28, 2017

I know I said in my previous post about teething, how much we loved the Sophie La Girafe, Nuby teether & our amber teething bracelet (all of which we’re still using & massive fans of by the way) but a new teething aid has come to our attention. We’re now at almost 1 year old and have just cut teeth 7 & 8 which, I’ll be honest, has been a little bit of a nightmare. Just before they popped through, we were asked if we wanted to try out the Matchstick Monkey teether, which having tried other teethers and remedies, I jumped at the chance.

The Bedtime Tag

By on February 27, 2017

Bedtime is my absolute favourite part of the day (as well as any time involving food of course). Sometimes I count down the hours until it’s time for me to settle down and have a snooze (well deserved of course).

Children’s Book: Footloose by Kenny Loggins

By on February 8, 2017

It’s no lie that reading is a huge thing in our house.  I’ve been reading since early primary school; I was always way ahead of my age so I ended up having to read newspapers for my reading homework. My mum and nan always encouraged me to read and shared their love of reading, so it’s only right that I’m gonna pass that on to my little one(s). Bear already has a 3 shelf bookcase absolutely full of books. Kid has more books than me & he’s not even 1 yet…what happened there?!

Baby’s 1st Birthday Wishlist

By on January 25, 2017

Oh wow! A whole year has come around so blimmin’ fast. Even in the newborn days, and thinking that one day, my little bear is going to have his 1st birthday, imagining what we’re going to do to celebrate, I never actually imagined how emotionally overwhelming it would all feel. To think that I have an almost 1 year old child is crazy, yet wonderful. Thinking of all of the things we have done, achieved, and goals we’ve reached in a whole year makes me feel so so proud of us. Our little family, my whole world.

10 Ways I’m #RockingMotherhood

By on January 22, 2017

I’ll be honest, being a mum, although it was the only thing I ever wanted in the world, has not been a majorly easy ride. Parenting is hard, so hard. And although, some things have come fairly easy to me, I’ve also struggled a bit. I don’t feel like I should be admitting that but I should be honest. I’m forever putting myself down and feeling bad about myself as a person, a parent and a family woman.  I’m so grateful for Naomi over at Me Becoming Mum for tagging me in the #RockingMotherhood tag, it’s been helping me to realise that actually, I’m doing great!

Elemis Sensational Skin Set

By on January 20, 2017

Since having bear, I have been really unlucky with my skin. Whilst pregnant, it was really dry & itchy, but since, it has really had a mind of its own. If it isn’t dry and itchy, I might as well have put my head in a deep fat fryer.

For my birthday, I was really lucky to receive this Elemis Sensational Skin gift set from my in-laws, and my god is it a huge game changer. The set consists of 6 items for skin and body and comes with a gorgeous silver bag to carry it all around in.
