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 – A review

November 10, 2019 admin 0

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 […]

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 […]

This year we have opted for Treads school shoes and here’s why

August 18, 2019 admin 1

I don’t know about your kids but mine seem to go through school shoes like you wouldn’t believe, especially my eldest. It doesn’t seem to matter whether we buy their shoes from a well known brand or a high street supermarket, within a matter of weeks they are scuffed and looking messy and within no time at all they have worn away the fronts, or the soles, or both, and need a new pair before […]
