10 Things You May Not Know About Me…

I was nominated by the very lovely Sam who blogs over at Mouse, Moo and Me Too to write a post on 10 things about myself. I’ve been putting this off for a few weeks because I honestly couldn’t think of what I would have to say that may be of interest… hence why Jake is usually the feature of my blogs, he is much cuter and more interesting than me! Anyway, I am taking the plunge and letting you get to know me just a little bit more… here goes: Continue reading “10 Things You May Not Know About Me…”

When Chicken Pox Strikes

Chicken pox has finally reached us after knowing quite a few people coming down with it in the last few months and it hitting pre-school just recently too. It is inevitable when your child comes into close contact with so many other children but it was still a surprise and then the realisation hit that we didn’t actually know anything about what we needed to do.

Review: Beeutiful Skincare

I was fortunate enough to meet Carly from Beeutiful at a networking event for local businesses. After giving an informative talk on all that she has achieved in the last 5 years we had the opportunity to view and purchase the products she makes from home. All products have been individually created by Carly and have honey as their main ingredient. This honey comes directly from her own hives and she ensures that nothing goes to waste and, more importantly, Continue reading “Review: Beeutiful Skincare”

She has brought together education with fun rhyming stories to teach children the importance of looking after themselves, one another and the environment. There are 7 books in the series and each has been entirely Continue reading “Review: Life’s Little Bugs”

What’s On My Mother’s Day List?

I didn’t want to do a fancy list for Mother’s Day saying buy this, buy that BUT I do want to highlight some of the amazing small businesses I have come across recently and the items that I have just fallen in love with. I think it is so important to shop small and support those who are just starting out in their new venture, especially on days where the large stores dominate the market.

So here is my personal choice of fabulous gifts perfect for any Mum this Mother’s Day. Continue reading “What’s On My Mother’s Day List?”

The Differences Between a Three-Year-Old and a Two-Year-Old

As a first time parent, it can be easy to get swept along with the milestone charts, the opinions of others, the ‘I did it this way’ advice and listening to never ending cycle of those magical words ‘it gets easier’. What many people fail to mention is that the newborn bit is actually the easiest part – so straight away you are being led into a false sense of security that it will become easier. I will be honest with you though, it won’t, it will become more challenging… sorry. Yet one of the most spoken about phases Continue reading “The Differences Between a Three-Year-Old and a Two-Year-Old”

International women's day

Be You, Try Something New and Unite On International Women’s Day

Every 8th March is marked by International Women’s Day. A day for women to stand up and unite, a day for them to remind themselves that they do count and that they can do or be anything they want, a day to remind ourselves of everything women have done before us to achieve rights and equality. On this day I want to talk about and celebrate all of the amazing women I know or have recently met. Women who are inspiring, Continue reading “Be You, Try Something New and Unite On International Women’s Day”
