The Best Ways To Relax After A Stressful Day in the Office
Some days in the office just don’t go as you expect. Perhaps the morning starts off on a sour note when you miss your train or bus, and things only go downhill from there. You get to your desk late and your manager gives you “the look” when …

Review & Giveaway: Dreambaby 3 Stage Baby Gum & Tooth Care

Review I recently received a Dreambaby 3 Stage Baby Gum & Tooth Care. I chose the pink one for my youngest daughter. I was really pleased with these brushes as I find the tooth brushes from shops around where i live aren't that good, and to top it off these brushes care for your baby's …

Baby's First Christmas Gifts

A Baby's First Christmas is a very special time for the family. I think it's quite difficult to know what to buy for a baby on their first Christmas especially if they are only a few weeks or months old! Mia was born 20 days before Christmas! I didn't have much money then to be honest s…

Where To Spend Christmas

I never really thought of this until i moved in with my partner just over 2 years ago. 2011 was the first ever Christmas i spent away from my family because i live roughly 30 minutes away. It was really weird - and i did think for a while before Christmas where should we go. We decided to stay home…

Choosing A Theme: Living Room

A few weeks ago we had a phone call to say our offer had been accepted for the house we wanted to buy. Since then i haven't stopped thinking about what theme to do each bedroom. One thing i know, it's going to be much different to how we have it now. We have one long living room with a red …

Days Out With Your Children

I love going out with my partner and daughters. But with it being Winter now we are limited on where we can go! But we still try and do things as a family when we can. 

We love going for walks as a family. Makes the girls really tired and sleep good for us at night time ha ha! When we go for walks …

First Christmas Concert.

Mia had her First ever Christmas Concert today. She was doing at 2pm and at 6pm. I went too see her at both times. She was gutted that her Dad couldn't come because he had to work but she enjoyed herself so much and she was brilliant singing! I had tears in my eyes watching her. Grown up so muc…

Being A Mother Of Two

My life had changed completely when i fell pregnant with my youngest. I had no clue what it would be like. There has been ups & downs but at the end of the day they're both worth it, and i wouldn't change my life one bit.

Having one young child and being pregnant.
When i found out i was p…
