Getting some Winter Sun

Doug and I are getting to the point where we really would love some winter sun. This year we decided not to have a holiday abroad because we had recently moved home. We did go away this year but just in the UK and whilst the weather was good while being away it wasn’t like being abroad. I have put together a wish list of some of my favourite items from Simply Beach  that I would love for a winter break away. They have such a massive choice of items for you to look through and choose. The swim wear… View Post

How Mums Can Market Their Products Like a Pro

Mums have always been great a multitasking. Whether this is a learned talent or a natural trait is debatable and yet, it is still an undeniable fact. This is the very same reason why the number of female CEOs is on the rise. However, not all of us have the ability or the desire to run a full-time organisation. DIY businesses have therefore become commonplace and working from home is a great way to enjoy a predictable source of income. Still, possessing a functional website is not always enough. Without a sound marketing strategy, your efforts will inevitably fall upon deaf ears. If you have been struggling to… View Post

Where have I been?

Its been a while since I last wrote a personal post about our little family and I thought it was about time I updated you all on what’s been going on. We had the move in October last year, we have been in our new house a year on the 16th October 2018. After we moved home there were a lot of problems which have taken a while and lots of time to resolve, we are finally getting there with those now though.

How to make time for you

  When you’re a parent, you are consumed by this little bundle of joy that you have created, and because of this, you start to lose grip of other things around you that you don’t feel matter as much anymore, like your social life for example. Now that you have this property of being an amazing Mum, other things just lose their importance against that. While this just shows how much you care, it’s also important to realise that sometimes this isn’t for the best. Your child will always be your priority, but you need to come first in things… View Post

Jakes Shoes and back to School

It is that time when we need to start getting the kids stuff ready for back to school. I always leave everything till the last minute and then end up rushing around. Each year I tell myself I wont do it that way again and each year I end up rushing around in the last week. This year I was lucky enough to be asked by Jakes shoes to review a pair of school shoes for Little Man. Since he has been at school I have always bought expensive shoes from proper shoe shops.

Schichler 4×4 Vehicle review

My youngest son is really into playing with figures and vehicles so I knew he was going to love the Schleich Wildlife 4×4 vehicle. The vehicle needs to be put together, instructions are given however it is pretty simple to do. I just needed to check the instructions when it came to putting the winch on the front. I think part of the fun is actually building it up first. You can put stickers on, the wheels, lights and the winch. There are 2 figures included a man and a monkey and then there is a first aid kit and… View Post
