The things I’d forgotten about the newborn stage.

Ada is now six weeks old and I can’t remember life before her, she’s an absolute dream. (all the heart emojis) Throughout my pregnancy with Ada I felt so much more laidback than I was when I was pregnant with Harley. I was so sure I had it all figured out, after all we’d already […]

Then there was Ada.

10pm on Thursday 4th January; when our family became complete. Ada’s arrival was quick and wonderful (albeit very painful but the gas and air helped) and now I couldn’t imagine life without her. We’re all besotted and Harley is obsessed. After being induced with Harley (due to his size – he weighed 9lbs but was […]

The Wicked Uncle Gift Guide.

Basically everything I want for Harley (and me). LOL. Seriously though, the Wicked Uncle website is pretty ace. Rather than making you scroll pages of gifts and sifting through lots of different toys the website is arranged into rather handy categories, you can filter by gender and age recommendations, as well as categories including Adventurer, Brainiac and […]

Asda Little Angels: Tips for protecting our little ones.

A few weeks ago I was very lucky to be invited to a super-glam lunch at The Ivy with Asda Little Angels and Dr Hilary Jones. Yup at The Ivy! So I took my waddling-self off on the train and down to London Town for a child-free afternoon filled with amazing food (I’m not exaggerating […]

#TENATalk ‘Oooops Moments’.

To be honest I feel like my life is a series of ‘oooops moments’. The ‘hands over eyes’ emoji is my most used and basically the emoji that sums up my general day-to-day life. So when the lovely ladies at Myriad PR got in touch to ask if I’d be willing to share some of my […]

The milestones you won’t find in the books.

If you’re anything like I was when Harley was a baby you’ll be constantly looking up what milestones are next and basically what to expect. I also swore by the Wonder Weeks app, which I’ll definitely use again. But what the books and the websites don’t tell you is that there are another set of […]

Holiday with a Toddler.

So I’ve been meaning to write this blog for two months but haven’t got chance too. We set off on our travels in July, just me, Tom and Harley (and bump) for a week in sunny Spain. Harley’s been lucky enough to travel abroad three times now, once at 5 months and last year when […]

Pregnancy Update: 21 Weeks.

So I’ve decided I’m going to start posting weekly (ha wish me luck!) updates on how preggo life is treating me so that I have something to look back on this time next year when no doubt I’ll be missing bump and experiencing major bump envy. (Don’t worry mum, I promise no more babies after […]

An afternoon at The Dorchester with Asda Little Angels. #ad

On Sunday I was lucky enough to be invited to the amazing Dorchester Hotel in London Town for an afternoon of pampering with Asda Little Angels nappies. After walking through crowds of very excited Tom Petty fans (he was playing at Hyde Park) and taking the wrong turning a couple of times (ok, 4 times […]

The First Trimester.

So you may have seen, our family is growing and we’re all so excited and can’t wait for our little man or lady to join us in December – Christmas Day to be exact if my due date is anything to go by. You may have noticed I’ve been pretty quiet over the past few […]
