The Christmas Tag

The lovely Lauren from Scrapbook Blog nominated me to take part in this year’s Christmas Tag. Blogger tags are designed to get to know a blogger a little more and I have previously taken part in this one here, but this time around the questions only have Christmas in mind. So, let’s get started… Continue reading “The Christmas Tag”

Finding Your Girl Tribe As An Adult

Sometimes, I feel as though using the term ‘girl tribe’ as a full grown adult seems a bit silly to some BUT I love the feeling it gives. I mean, for starters, I don’t have an issue with the word girl, I actually struggle to think of myself as a woman. I don’t feel or act quite old enough to use that word for myself and still think of a woman as somebody older and far more sophisticated (so, er, def not me!)

Christmas is NOT a Competition, Don’t Let It Overwhelm You

Over the last week or so I have become more and more enraged as the Christmas season has gradually crept up… a bit too prematurely for my liking, I mean is it just me or is ‘Christmas’ getting earlier each year?! Santa in November anyone?!

Now, I am all for celebrating. I am definitely all for the pretty lights, the cosy nights by the fire, the songs (I love the songs!) Continue reading “Christmas is NOT a Competition, Don’t Let It Overwhelm You”

Our Cloth Nappy Update And Why It Was A Great Change!

This post is well overdue but what with sleep deprivation, the baby still wanting to boob far too much and he is still sleeping in with us plus with the start of school for Jake, things have had to be put on hold for a while. Anyway, here is my cloth nappy update… Continue reading “Our Cloth Nappy Update And Why It Was A Great Change!”

Get Christmas All Wrapped Up With The RSPB

Yes, I said it. Christmas. I’m not usually one to say it quite so early but what with numerous birthdays beforehand (as well as one on the day itself!) I have decided that this year is the year I get organised and on the ball well in advance. As a busy Mum of 2 now, I can’t leave it all to the last minute anymore and I don’t want to be rushing around when we could be enjoying the run-up to the big day by visiting Grottos, going to Christmas Fayres or even to one of the many stunning winter wonderlands that are on in our area.

Our Turtle Tots Brand Ambassadorship #bringonthesmiles

Well, our brand ambassadorship has come to a close and to say I am a little sad about that is an understatement. I am the first to admit that my attitude towards baby swimming hasn’t been the most positive in the past. When I had Jake, I thought people were crazy to pay out for a newborn to go swimming, for making the time and effort to go to a class when they were so sleep deprived and for getting their babies to swim under the water, all I could think was ‘how will this benefit them?!Continue reading “Our Turtle Tots Brand Ambassadorship #bringonthesmiles”

The perfect bedtime routine for your teething baby text over three images of a teething baby

The Perfect Bedtime Routine for Your Teething Baby

As you know, a teething baby is hard work at night time. The pain tends to wake them more often, their ears can ache when laid down, nappy rash can make turning over uncomfortable and you will certainly know about it if a tooth decides to cut in the early hours! It’s tough. I am experiencing it all over again and it is just as bad the second time around. However, Continue reading “The Perfect Bedtime Routine for Your Teething Baby”
