9 Tips For Getting Outdoor Gear On A Budget

We are an outdoorsy family, always have been. We have always had a dog, we love long walks, we love going to the beach or the woods and being out in the garden. However, even though we enjoy all of this we most certainly aren’t kitted out in all the up to date must-haves outdoor gear, in fact, one of my favourite coats is 11 years old and from a well-known high street store and only cost me £20. For me, getting outdoors is vital but spending a fortune to do so isn’t so here are my 9 tips for getting outdoor gear on a budget.

Review | The Mozy- An Outdoors Wrap With A Difference

*Paid Collaboration

You may have realised by now that we are a very outdoorsy family. We love exploring new places, going on long walks and being close to nature. What you may not have realised about me is that I cannot stand being cold. In fact, once my body gets too cold I find it hard to warm up and that can often put a dampener on a day out.

However, a blanket doesn’t really do a great job. With gaps around the underneath of you, the constant re-aligning of it due to the kids jumping on you and the lack of consistent warmth, sometimes it just doesn’t seem worth it and I thought I was just destined to forever be moaning that I am cold. But then Get The Mozy contacted me… Continue reading “Review | The Mozy- An Outdoors Wrap With A Difference”

Why Outdoor Play is so Important to us

Growing up, I would spend most of my time outdoors, whether that was at our local park, riding my bike, going on long walks with friends or climbing trees in the woods, I was at my happiest when both active and out of the house. It was inevitable that I would marry somebody with a similar outlook and having grown up in the countryside, my husband spent a lot of his time in the same way. Having children has meant that we’ve not only loved having the opportunity to go out and find new places to explore Continue reading “Why Outdoor Play is so Important to us”

You might be thinking that being outside and updating your garden in the winter is the last thing you want to be doing, however, each season brings plenty of reasons to get out and enjoy this space you have, no matter how many layers you need to wear to stay warm. The change in the leaves, scenery and wildlife can all bring the perfect opportunity for beautiful photos and provide you with an environment where you can clear your head with plenty of fresh air. It’s currently the festive season and with New Year’s Eve just around the corner, it’s a great excuse for a winter BBQ and to get your besties over for an evening of frolics. It’s time to stockpile the blankets, gloves, and scarves, and begin planning how you’re going to make more of your outdoor space and updating your garden, whatever the weather.
