Geometic Stacker Review [Magic Fairy Wings]


Emily was recently sent a lovely package of Melissa & Doug products to review, by Magic Fairy Wings. Emily is a big fan of wooden toys, and messy play. So the two items that were picked out for her were perfect.

Where's Bunny Gone?


Emily has a comforter called brown bunny, you may have seen it appear on my blog many times. She has a medium pink bunny, which she has had since birth – although at the time she wasn’t really interested in it. It was way too big for her to snuggle up to, and she used to get frustrated by it. When I went shopping I saw some smaller jellycat bunnies in the shop, only Emily spotted it at the same time as me and decided in that moment, brown bunny was coming home with us. She cried for the bunny when I tried to put it back and up until that point, I had never seen her get attached to something. So, I caved and let her have it. God forbid we forget bunny, or misplace it – who knew a child having a comforter could be so stressful. I honestly feel like I have another child!

29 Weeks Pregnant [Baby Number 2]


Due Date: June 28th, 2017

Mood: I feel like a broken record whenever I do these pregnancy updates, as I always talk about my anxiety, but I promised I would be as honest as possible. I have been really struggling with anxiety this week, I hate being away from Sam, just because it makes me feel uneasy. I also hate going out because that makes me worry too. I'm not even sure what I'm anxious about, sometimes its just that feeling but I can't tell why I'm having it. I'm also experiencing quite a lot of pain, which could be another reason I am anxious.

Easter Weekend


Easter has been a little bit hectic for us, we did our usual Easter egg hunt, at Sam’s mums this year. Then decided it would be a good idea to decorate Emily’s bedroom, move it all around and put up her new bunk beds up. Sam had four days off so it seemed like the perfect opportunity and a good use of his time off. Let me assure you – it’s not a good idea to try and put 60+ self-tap in screws, into a bed when you are 7 months pregnant. By the time, we finished her bedroom I was absolutely wiped out. I am really happy with it, and it is one less job for us to do though.

28 Weeks Pregnant [Baby Number 2]


Due Date: June 28th, 2017

Mood: My mood has been very up and down recently. I would say more down than up, but I'm trying to stay as positive as I can - which is a lot harder than it seems. I have never hid the fact I have anxiety, and it seems the more pregnant I get the more anxious I become. This in itself has made it extremely hard to be excited about anything baby related. While I am so excited for our family to be growing, and the fact we are having another little girl - I'm so anxious and scared of labour (because my labour with Emily was pretty horrific) that it is putting a dampner on everything. I kind of just want to get it over and done with, so I can meet her.

Alternative Easter Egg Hunt!


With Easter coming up, everyone has gone crazy buying chocolate. While we do buy Emily a few little eggs, I try not to let her have too much chocolate, as she would literally just eat it all day. Emily was sent these L.O.L surprise dolls as a alternative Easter gift for her Easter egg hunt - and she couldn't be happier to receive them.

Dolmio #ThankGoodness Challenge


As a pregnant mama, I love to save time where I can when I’m cooking, I also love to get Emily involved in the cooking process. I have found that with a fussy eater, it is so much easier to show her what I am making, and let her help where she can. That way she will actually be more tempted to try it and get involved. I often find myself reaching for Dolmio sauces when we are doing our grocery shop, they have always been a brand that I have used, and I especially love their lasagne white sauce. When we were given the opportunity to join in with the Dolmio #ThankGoodness challenge, of course we jumped at the chance.

Love Boo [Review]


We were recently sent some lovely Love Boo products to review, and I couldn't wait to try them out. On first impressions the packaging is beautiful, I love the little illustration on the baby range! Love Boo is a company based in the UK specializing in baby and mummy skin care. They offer a wide range of pampering products which are made of the finest quality natural ingredients.

Emily's Easter Basket


This Easter will be Emily's third Easter, also the third year I have made her a Easter basket. These posts have always been popular so I do try to do them when the time comes around (we also do Halloween and Christmas eve baskets). I much prefer the idea of giving Emily things for Easter rather than a big chocolate egg - which I'm sure she will get from family anyway. I do buy her small bits of chocolate cause after all it wouldn't be Easter without some chocolate.

27 Weeks Pregnant [Baby Number 2]


Due Date: June 28th, 2017

Mood: This week I have been feeling so much more anxious than last week, I tried to stay busy as we still have so much to do before little lady is born. I moved around our bedroom to accommodate new baby bits, and then redecorated Emily's bedroom as she is getting a new bed and eventually the girls will be sharing. It needed a fresh coat of paint anyway, but I wanted it to be done a while before baby is here, as I feel like a new baby, and a new big girl bed (She is moving from a toddler bed to a single) will be a big deal all at once for her. Having a toddler who doesn't sleep already I didn't want to add to the stress of that with the change of bed. I will be posting about the girls room soon, as I love how its turned out. I have also brought some gorgeous accessories for their room. 


My First Thomas And Friends Review


Emily has always been a huge fan of Thomas the Tank engine. It is the only program that she will sit and watch from start to finish, she has quite the collection of Thomas trains and can name pretty much all of the characters to you. Of course her favourite being Emily, the green steam engine. When I was given the opportunity to review the My First Thomas and friends comforter and soft toy, from Rainbow designs. I of course said yes. I knew that Emily would love the Thomas soft toy, and the comforter would be great for baby number 2. She is bound to be a Thomas fan too, especially with her big sisters influence.

The Irish Fairy Door


Emily is at a age where everything is so magical and special, and to be really honest, I have to admit that I love it. We were recently given the opportunity to review a fairy door from The Irish Fairy Door Company, and I knew that Emily would be so excited. These magical doors open up a world of imagination for children, and would make a lovely gift.
