Nutri Fill-It review and Giveaway

  Over the summer I have really been into making smoothies. I usually make them in the morning and then take to work and drink through-out the morning. The good thing about smoothies are that you can make anything you like to suit to your taste and lifestyle. It was recently I then came across Nutri Fill-It. Nutri Fill-it is a reusable, freezable pouch that can be pretty much filled with any liquid. You can fill it with water, juice or smoothies and I have been using it for Smoothies. You open it at the bottom and fill it with… View Post

Tommee Tippee Digital Monitor review

For the last couple of months we have managed without a monitor because our old one was dropped downstairs and broke. It had been bothering me for a little while that we did not have a monitor in Bubs room so this review came as great timing. We were sent the Tommee Tippee Digital monitor to test out and review here on the blog. It saves me having to get up and check on Bubs now, as I know that I will 100% hear him again through the monitor. Top features of the monitor… digital temperature display 300m range out… View Post

Happy 2nd Birthday Bubs

HAPPY BIRTHDAY BEAUTIFUL BOY 15 September 2014 you came into the world via planned C-Section. Today is now your 2nd birthday and I think we are all in denial that you are growing up so fast.

We now know that this means you will grow up perfectly fine and be able to do anything and everything that someone can do who doesn’t have this. Them first few months were so hard, I worried constantly and we were forever at the hospital having… View Post

Scared of going under the knife

I have finally plucked up the courage to have a mole removed which has annoyed me for way to long now. Last year I went through Bupa and had a consultation about having it removed. The consultant advised me that he would just numb the area, cut around the mole and stitch it back up. This seems simple enough hey? Well the thing that is worrying me is the fact it is on my top lip. I know at the moment I am not happy and I feel people always stare at it when they speak to me. When I mention… View Post

MAM milk powder and snack box review

Are you like me and take milk powder out with you in the massive box it comes in? It can be really annoying and very bulky to carry around with you. I have been using the MAM milk powder box recently and wish I had started to use this when both of my kids were babies. Bubs still has powder formula before bed and I always take a bottle and milk powder out with me. He can be so fussy and I know that if I have a bottle with me at least he wont go hungry. The box comes… View Post

Our experience Climbing the O2

A couple of weeks back Doug and I finally got round to booking a present that we received for Christmas last year. It was a climb over the top of the O2 which we had really been looking forward to. We have both been up The Shard and on The London Eye and so although we were looking forward to the O2, we were not to sure what to expect. On arrival we both looked up at the walkway over and said… nah that’s not high at all it will be really easy. How wrong we were! First all we… View Post
