The Chamomile Clinic

December 10, 2020 admin 0

When it comes to a brew I am more of a green tea girl then a coffee addict, mainly because I’m not a big fan of milk. However, my everyday choice of herbal teas usually comes in a tea bag. Despite indulging in fancy loose leaf teas whilst in quant coffee shops, I haven’t actually bought loose tea at home before, so was delighted to try some. I was sent four flavours to review by […]

So when I discovered ToucanBox craft subscription boxes for children I knew we just had to give them a try. […]

October 28, 2020 admin 0

What is coconut water? Coconut water is the liquid found inside a coconut. It is 100% natural and can be drank straight from the coconut. It should not be confused with coconut milk which is made from the flesh of the coconut and does not have the same benefits. The benefits of drinking coconut water  have been highly publicised and discussed for some time now with some individuals even referring to it as a super […]

Studio creator video maker kit – a review

September 18, 2020 admin 0

#gifted A couple of weeks ago we were very kindly sent the Studio Creator video maker kit to try out. Now normally we are sent things that either excite me, like books, beauty products or coffee or items that excite the kids like games, toys and chocolate but the studio creator perked the interest of both the boys and I and I have a feeling I am going to have to either share this one […]

how to wean your baby

Little Tummy baby food – A review

June 18, 2020 admin 0

We started weaning Layla at 6 months just as we did with the boys but unlike with the boys this time we have done a combination of pureed foods and baby led weaning along side breastfeeding. We have chosen to do a mix of the two methods for a couple of reasons 1. I find it easier to know how much Layla has actually consumed when using the purees and 2. I do worry about […]
