Three Ways To Help Build A Good Credit Score

At some point in your adult life, you'll need credit. When you apply for certain products, lenders will perform a credit check; looking at your past credit history helps them to predict your future behaviour and determines in their mind whether you're a risk or not. Something I didn't realise when I was younger was that you need to actually have a credit history to have a credit score. I just presumed that as I had no debt then I'd have a good credit score but that's not the case. No credit history, no score. So, having little credit history goes against you, just as much as having poor history does. 

I used to think that you only ever needed a good credit history for big purchases, like a mortgage or a business loan. But, your credit history can actually affect whether or not you can pay your bills via direct debit, pay monthly for your insurances or even whether you can get a mobile phone contract. I definitely think as soon as you're eighteen, it's worth starting to build a good credit history, so here for you are three ways to help build a good credit score..

Promoting Breastfeeding ISN'T A Criticism Of Formula

Whenever I see a viral post about breastfeeding there's a backlash of comments from parents that haven't or can't breastfeed.

We've always encouraged play in the bath, so we were super excited when Vital Baby sent over some of their bath toys for us to try out, needless to say they were a big hit from the offset.

Top Tips To Turn Tears Into Smiles

Spring has finally sprung into action and delivered us some fabulous weather (despite the fact that whilst I write this, it's absolutely tipping it down) which means we've been heading outside more than ever (and ignoring housework). Now little is walking, we've been experiencing more tears than ever as he just loves to climb things and venture into places he shouldn't; his poor little legs are always full of bruises and scratches. BritMums & Elastoplast recently asked me what my best strategies are to sooth and cheer my little one when he suffers with the inevitable bumps and scrapes.

A Monochrome First Birthday Party

You may of noticed everything has been quiet on my social channels, and even quieter on the blog. I will admit, and yes, you can call my crazy, I turned into some kind of mumzilla to make everything perfect for my baby's first birthday.

Lets just address the fact my baby is officially ONE! I know everyone says this, but I really don't know where the past year has gone? It's literally flown by. Anyway, little man's birthday fell on bank holiday weekend; the added day meant that family could travel down without it all being too much of a rush, so we decided to throw a little party to celebrate him turning one.
