Easter Egg Hunt


I've been a little bit absent from my blog lately, I seem to drop in and out at the moment for no other reason than we have a lot going on as a family, with health and things and that will always be my priority in life. However I am trying my best to get back to my little space because I miss it, and I feel like I really just need the creative outlet to blurt things out when I need to. This weekend we decided to do the girls easter egg hunt, I normally do it the weekend before Easter, purely because we don't have a garden and we tend to go to the girl's nannies house the weekend before Easter.

Homemade Mothers Day Gifts


With mothers day approaching this weekend, I wanted to show you our homemade mothers day gifts. I'm a big fan of crafting and try to make things as often as I can for the girl's grandparents - mainly because I think that it's nice to have things to look back on. I was kindly sent some paint sticks by Little Brian and thought they would be the perfect thing to use for this particular craft.

Great-Grandparents & Pancake Day Races!


This week we headed into town, to watch the girls grandad take part in a charity pancake race. He took part in the wheelchair race, and much to the girl's absolute delight he won! The girls loved standing on the sidelines cheering him on, Isabelle was shouting 'go grandad go', and Emily was using my phone to take pictures of him with the biggest smile on her face. When he crossed the finish line, Emily looked at me and said 'I'm so proud my grandad is the winner'. That when it hit me that these are the memories that the girls are going to remember in years to come when they're great grandparents are no longer with us - and just how lucky they are to have five great-grandparents. 

World Book Day 2019! [Giveaway]


Happy world book day! For the second year running, Emily decided that she wanted to be Miffy. The Miffy books have always been a firm favourite of hers, she literally has more than ten different Miffy books. Any time she finds a new one that she hasn't got, she has to add it to her collection. 

Building a Capsule Wardrobe with Designer Children's Clothes


As Emily and Isabelle are getting older, I’ll admit that I have really enjoyed following children’s fashion trends in recent years, and I couldn’t stop daydreaming about acquiring a couple of designer children’s items for special occasions. This got me thinking — with the slow fashion movement gaining momentum, it makes total sense to invest in a few timeless, well-made pieces. With those, you can build a smart wardrobe with plenty of mix-and-match combinations that all fit together. With spring around the corner, I feel like it’s time for a declutter, and today I’m thrilled to present you with some tips on building a capsule wardrobe for your children!

Isabelle's at 1.5 years


I'm still in denial that I have an 18-month-old, I mean how did that happen? I know that people always say that the small baby/toddler days go really fast, and I completely agree with that statement, but for some reason unknown to me, time speeds up with your second child, I feel like I've blinked and shes a fully fledged independent, stubborn, feisty, darling of a toddler. I mean how? How did we get here so fast! She is a complete chatterbox, just like her sister was at this age. She honestly doesn't stop talking, it doesn't matter what she is doing she has something to say about it and loves nothing more than giving us a running commentary on what she is doing, and how her play is going.

Slow Sundays


Sundays are my favourite day by far, guaranteed Sam is at home, there is no pressure on us to do anything. We usually potter around the house, doing odd jobs, having a roast, sometimes we go out for walks as a family but usually, we end up staying in our pyjamas if we don't have to go anywhere. These Sunday's, are the days I want to remember.

Baking With Isabelle


Isabelle or belle as she currently calls herself at the moment is developing such a cute little personality. She wants to do everything that Emily can do, and is getting really independent. Since Emily does her two full days at preschool, I have been making those days, our days. I leave the housework, the washing, and all the jobs I need to do, and just spend the day with her, doing whatever she wants to do. I know that when I look back, I'm going to miss her being this age, the age where she is a little sponge. I don't want to look back and regret that I didn't make the most of our days - just the two of us.

Snow Day..


Emily has been so excited for a snow day since before Christmas. The only thing that she wanted for Christmas was for it to snow, and to say that she was disappointed in waiting until February to get a sprinkle of snow was an understatement. She was even more disappointed that we only got a small amount, and then it melted within 12 hours. That being said, we were outside at 8.30am to play in it.

Little Life Update & Goals for 2019


I've been a little a lot quiet on here lately, and to be honest, that's down to health. January has not been the kindest month to me, I've spent a lot of it in hospital, and I'm scheduled for surgery - surgery that I should have had months ago, but instead, I was misdiagnosed and spent months in agony with no idea of what was going on inside my own body. To be quite honest, it has been a little rubbish, and I'm so ready for it all to be over. The good news is they finally know what's wrong, how to fix it, and we have a date in the diary to do so - fingers crossed it will all be over soon. It's safe to say that I'm really, extremely thankful for the lovely doctors and nurses who saw in the new year with me, and diagnosed what was actually going on with me because I've had the ongoing pain for 18 months I started to feel like it was all in my head.
