REVIEW | Lost My Name Personalised Books

  lost my name review

I've always been a book worm, I absolutely love reading and knew that I'd want B to have a mini library for himself. Whilst his book collection is growing day by day, mine is slowly being neglected. As is everything else of mine (kids, eh?!). We were recently sent 'The Little Boy Who Lost His Name' and I can already tell this is going to remain our favourite personalised book for years...

Six Months Of Being Mum

Today is the day my little dude turns six months old, so I'm going all in with a cliche but I really don't know where the time has gone? It literally feels like I've blinked, and he's all of a sudden no longer my little newborn. He's a giggling, wriggling, cheeky little monkey and I just can't get enough of him. I honestly can't believe I've already been a mum for six months..

4 Things That Make Life With A Newborn Easier

Having to look after your brand new baby, and recover from giving birth is probably one of the hardest times of your life. It's hard, really hard, especially as a first time Mum when you have absolutely no idea whats going on, or what to do with this new bundle that doesn't seem to do much but cry, feed and sleep. I'm making it sound awful aren't I? Its not. It's the best damn experience ever, and one I'd do over and over again if I was given the chance but I'm not disputing the fact that it's really overwhelming. Your emotions are crazy, you hurt in places you didn't even know could hurt, and you're constantly worrying whether your baby is ok or if you're doing it right. In all fairness, no one knows what the hell they're doing, and there certainly isn't a right way to parent but there are a few things you can buy to make life with a newborn easier...

REVIEW | Mama & Belle Teething Necklace

mama and belle teething necklace

Oh, Teething. You can almost hear the delight in my voice can't you?! To be fair, Toothache drives me absolutely crazy so goodness knows what it's like for these little ones! We've actually been fairly lucky with B; until recently he's just been dribbling his way through numerous bibs, and chomping on anything he can fit in his mouth. But, the past couple of weeks it's upped it's anti and we now face random outbursts of crying. I hate it. We've been trying a few things to help ease his pain and so far we've found the Ashton & Parsons powder to work wonders, along with our Mama & Belle Teething Necklace.

A #BrightFuture For My Son...

Before I became a Mum I didn't really think too much of the future. Life hasn't always been kind to me and if I'm completely honest, I just used to take each day as it comes, perhaps a little carelessly! Now I often lay awake wondering what the future will bring for my baby, and how I can try to make his world a better place...

Throw A Skeleton Halloween Partaaaaay

Halloween skeleton party ideas

It's October and Halloween is just 4 weeks away! I'm not usually one to go all out, but as it's my sons first Halloween, I thought why not? We live in a lovely little village, and all the kids come trick or treating, so it will be nice to get in the spirit of it and have a little shindig! We're having a Skeleton Themed Halloween Party this year and we've got some awesome party pieces...
