It's no secret that it's been difficult sleeping in our house as hubby is a loud snorer (if you follow my IG you've seen the stories 😂) and it was starting to get me down. I'm not good if I don't get a decent few hours sleep! Ellie would come in not long after we'd… Continue reading Snoring!!
I have been toying with the idea of updating Ellie's room a bit, we decorated it to be used as a nursery but actually never used it as a nursery. I remember choosing a lovely yellow paint so that we wouldn't have to repaint as Ellie got older but I have found her room just… Continue reading Stickerscape – GIFTED

It is no secret that I LOVE books, specifically children's books. I haven't sat down and read an adult book in years, which bothers me terribly at times but I just find reading with Ellie brings me more joy than if I was reading on my own. Her love of stories is far bigger than… Continue reading The Golden Key (gifted)

She has taken the good and the bad and written about it in a way that I could definitely relate to. First Rhyme… Continue reading First Rhyme Mom Review (GIFTED)

Originally Katie wanted someone to review both the adult and the mini tees but currently didn't have any of Ellie's size available however I was still gifted the adult tee to review and loved it so… Continue reading Fierce Femme – Surviving Society Review (GIFTED)
Recently I have been so excited for the launch of a new small business on Instagram, The Little Sensory Box, a sensory box designed mainly for babies up to the age of 12 months. Or I was excited until I realised Ellie was quite a bit older than 12 months! I love supporting small businesses… Continue reading The Percussion Box – Review (Gifted)
I'm not good at self-care, I find it difficult to MAKE time for myself since Ellie was born. The Positive Wellbeing 'Zine for Mums does exactly what Emma envisaged, it promotes positivity in a world that can be extremely hard for new mums, actually on all mums! #winningasamummy #review #zineformums #isabellaandus #motheringarainbow #mblogger #pblogger #gifted
I got this Peppa Pig matching game for 50p in Tesco a few months ago, the box said 3+ but I knew I would find a use for them, even if it was just recognising the characters. Ellie confidently matches the character and likes pretending to get them wrong 😂. I don't use all the… Continue reading Matching Games
I had been following Baby Led Spreads on Instagram for quite a while but hadn't ordered anything seeing as Ellie is past the stage of spreads and purees but I loved their flavours so much. Baby Led Spreads are designed for baby led weaning however after talking to Keith, dad to 2, it became clear that there was room for these spreads in the wider market too.
