Road trip with Children

Have you ever thought of taking a road trip? I think the idea of a road trip is amazing, you get to see and visit so many places rather than staying in one place for a couple of weeks. I have been looking at road trips that would suit us as a family of 4 with two young children. A road trip doesn’t have to be about travelling to lots of different countries such as a road trip around Europe, you can have a Road trip around France, America and just one country that you love. I think travelling around… View Post

Keeping our memories safe in a Photobook

We have just recently arrived back home after having a lovely holiday in Greece. As a blogger I always take way too many photos and end up having to sit for hours sorting through them when we get home. I love taking pictures to remember every part of our holiday and with the kids growing up so fast those photo memories are always so special. I love nothing more than looking through old pictures of the boys and us as a family to see how we have grown and changed. I was given the chance to review a photo book… View Post

Slick Tricks To Force You Into Saving

Saving money to buy the things you want is never an easy task to undertake. To begin, a lot of the best things in life certainly aren’t free, and, in fact, will often have incredibly hefty price tags. For example, owning your own home will cost you loads in property costs alone, with the average home in the US costing $188,000. But, people still want to have one as part of their life. Big or small, affording the things you want will almost always take a little bit of time. So, it’s just a matter of motivating yourself to succeed,… View Post

Are you Autumn ready?

It’s that time of year, the time where you have to pack away all the summer clothes and get out the warm cosy Autumn/winter stuff. It does make me sad having to pack away the dresses, shorts and tee shirts however I do love a big oversized jumper to keep me lovely and warm. I have put together a few of my favourite items from Lyst for you to have a look through. Lyst is a fantastic website where lots of different brands are all together. So one website brings together brands such a Superdry, Boohoo, HM, forever 21 and… View Post

We finally exchanged

YAY, so as you can see by the title of the post we finally exchanged contracts. We sold our house on the 6th April 2017 and on Thursday 28th September. After so many hiccups along the way and getting to the point where I actually didn’t see the move happening we are finally here. I am finally packing up our life into cardboard boxes to move it all to what will be our new home. We are all so excited with a hint of anxiety thrown into the mix. It’s a new place and we have no friends close by,… View Post

My Top Dreamy Destinations and Giveaway

As most of you will know I am a Mum of 2 boys aged 6 and 3. I had the boys quite young at the age of 24 and 27 which means Doug and I dream of all the lovely romantic holidays we can take once the kids are grown up. We will still be young enough to enjoy ourselves and the kids will be grown up enough to stay at home, like kids don’t really want to go away with their parents at the age of 18 do they? So I thought I would share with you our top… View Post

Wobbly Worm Review

We have recently been playing a new game from Spinster called Wobbly Worm and it really is a great game which the kids love. In our house we love any games that can be played together as a family, away from the TV and iPads. Whilst the kids are allowed to watch TV and play with iPads it is nice to have some really good family games which you can all play together away from the screens. Wobbly worm is for 2-3 players age 3+ however it can easily be played by yourself or as a bigger group. The aim… View Post

Conservatories Can Be Dull, But Yours Doesn’t Have To Be

Conservatories used to be a favorite of the wealthy. But then along came prefabricated PVC varieties which opened up the market to everybody else. Now people on regular incomes could afford an outdoor-indoor space too. But there was a problem: conservatories were generally pretty dull and lacking in character. Sure, they were ideal for enjoying the view, even in cold weather. And, granted, they added some extra brightness and space to people’s homes, but there are only so many ways to make a white, plastic shell inspiring, and many designs fell short of the mark. How To Make A Conservatory Work… View Post
