• Are My Kids Spoilt?

    Let’s kick this post off with a story about what happened this afternoon.
    I sold Lily’s highchair.
    I know, not exactly how you thought this story would start, right?
    I sold her highchair on our local facebook selling site. The person who bought it picked it up at about 4pm. That’s when the meltdown started. Because, you see, Lily loved that highchair. Not just for her, but for her baby doll. We would take the legs off so it was floor level, she would sit baby in and bring baby food. When she saw it being carried off, she burst into tears. Cue Mum guilt! It had to go though. She’s getting too big for it and she sits beautifully at the table. The highchair was taking up unnecessary space.
  • 15 Books I Want To Read This Year!

    Reading has always been a passion of mine. I love getting lost in the different worlds that aren’t my own. It’s nice to settle down at the end of a stressful day, lose yourself in a story and not have to think or worry about life. So, today, I decided to compile a list of 15 books I want to read by the end of the year. I will probably end up reading a lot more than this, but these are the ones I definitely want to get to.
  • Longleat Safari Park! Why It’s Our Favourite Place To Go!

    longleat safari
    Longleat Safari Park seems to have always been part of my life. We spent many good days there when I was younger. I remember always taking a picnic, sitting on the grass and running around the trees. I knew it was going to be a great place to take the kids. We took Dominic to Longleat for the first time when he was a baby in his pram. As he has got older, he enjoys it more and more. He always asks to go and never gets bored of seeing the animals or playing in the play areas. Lily has recently become more amazed by it all. Especially looking at the monkeys and lions.
  • Aldi Lacura Concealer Pen First Impressions Review!

    I have decided I would like to start trying new products that are out of my comfort zone. Concealer isn’t normally classed as something “out of the comfort zone” for most people but, for me, it definitely is. I have no idea how to apply it, blend it or keep it looking fresh all day. To be honest, you probably shouldn’t take my opinion on this subject haha. However, I was browsing the aisles in Aldi and came across this concealer. I thought to myself “Why not? It’s worth a go” and for £2.99 you cant really go wrong. Into the trolley it went (probably against Simon’s will haha).
