The Mokee Cot Bed Review

January 14, 2020 admin 0

When we were pregnant with Layla we didn’t find out if she was a boy or a girl as just with our two other children we liked the element of surprise. This did however mean that when we decorated her nursery we had to opt for neutral colours and so we chose grey and orange, or grey and fox print wall paper anyway. We already had the wooden wardrobe and chest of draws from when it […]

The nursery makeover with Valspar paint

January 2, 2020 admin 0

When we were pregnant with our third baby we made the decision to keep the gender a surprise, although secretly I was convinced we were having a girl, which meant when it came to decorating the nursery we needed to opt for neutral colours. Having once been the tiddlers nursery it was already painted baby blue and white, not very neutral and a tad out dated having not been re decorated for 5 years so […]

Fairy Milk Mother

Fairy Milk Mother – A review

November 10, 2019 admin 0

I was recently introduced to a company called the Fairy Milk Mother who offer subscription boxes for breastfeeding mums. Now I’ve said it before, these subscription boxes are popping up all over the place for so many different reasons, pets, kids, beauty, periods, you name it there is a subscription box for it and some are awesome and some are just a little silly in my opinion. However, at 38 weeks pregnant with the desire […]

ACE winter refresh challenge

October 29, 2019 admin 4

As summer becomes a distant memory and Autumn turns to Winter we were asked if we wanted to take part in the ACE winter refresh challenge to freshen up our winter wardrobes. BUT let’s be honest, there is no way  that at 37 weeks pregnant I am going to fit in to a single one of my favourite winter outfits, so I thought I would go one further and really put ACE to the test. […]

your waters broke

Your Waters Broke Where?!

October 7, 2019 admin 2

With only 7 weeks left till my due date, one of the things that keeps playing on my mind when I am making plans is what if my waters break? You would think having already had two children that this wouldn’t be my biggest concern, yet my waters never broke with the boys. With the first one the midwife broke them for me during labor and with the second I had an emergency C section, […]

Am I having a Boy or a Girl?

September 27, 2019 admin 0

Nowadays when ladies get pregnant and find themselves wondering “Am I having a boy or a girl?” it is common practice to find out the gender of the baby before the birth instead of waiting, with those who opt for a surprise at delivery being in the minority.  It is also becoming increasingly common for these that don’t opt to find out the gender to instead find themselves on the receiving end of lots of […]

Personalised clothing by Sonality

September 4, 2019 admin 0

I am a huge fan of personalised items and often buy personalised gifts for family and friends with my favourites usually being personalised books. However, I have recently been introduced to a company called Sonality where you can order personalised clothing for babies, children and adults. Now my initial reaction was that I am not a huge fan of kids walking round with their name on the outside of their clothes as if a stranger […]

The Mokee Wool Nest and Mini Pod

July 31, 2019 admin 0

We are currently 5 and a half months pregnant with our third baby having left it nearly seven years since we had our last. This time round has been different in many ways and I am amazed just how much has changed in what I consider a relatively short period of time. For example when we were having both our boys our go to shop for everything baby related was Babys’R’Us which of course no […]

The perfect maternity leggings by Love Leggings

July 15, 2019 admin 0

I am currently 5 and a half months pregnant with my third baby and from about 3 months pregnant my clothes have felt uncomfortable and tight, especially my jeans and trousers. This wasn’t the case with the first two and it took me by surprise as I hadn’t considered moving into maternity clothing so early but I guess every pregnancy is different.   The very first piece of maternity clothing I wore this time round […]

Now that I am in my thirties I find that I am being invited to less weddings and more baby showers, anyone else? I love a baby shower as much as the next person I often find I struggle to think of gift ideas that will be loved by the mum to be but wont be repeated several times or is likely to be something they have already bought in preparation for the upcoming arrival […]
