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 […]

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 […]

Holiday. Part Two. This time with a toddler.

So I’m currently in the throes of major holiday blues. Over the past three months we’ve been lucky enough to go away on three breaks; to Bournemouth with my family, to Devon with the boyfriend’s family and have just returned from two glorious weeks in Spain. This equals a huge crash back to reality. Last […]

My Friday Favourite. Part Two.

A treat for mum this time. Baby wipes have destroyed my hands, fact. They’re so dry and icky and I know it’s because of the baby and anti-b wipes. So I’ve been on the hunt the ultimate hand cream, and I think I’ve found it… The L‘Occitane Shea Butter Hand Cream. It’s thick but not […]

My Friday Favourite. Part one. 

I’ve decided I’m going to start a new feature called my Friday Favourite. I love finding new products that make life 15 times easier and great places to visit so I thought I’d start sharing them. For my first Friday Fave I’m talking food. Much like his mummy, Harley loves food. Especially a proper cooked […]

Weaning Tales. Part Two.

Harley’s almost one now (I’m not even going to start on how ridiculously quickly the past year has gone) and he’s been on solids for nearly seven months. It’s been a while since I’ve written about weaning, you can see my last post here, but I’m not going to lie I’ve found it stressful. For […]

New Mum Essentials.

New Mum Essentials.

I’m such a nostalgic person. I’m consistently starting sentences with ‘This time last year…’ Or ‘The last time we were here…’. And I’m finding I’m doing it more than ever at the moment as we get closer to Harley’s birthday in March. This time last year (see I’m doing it again) I was frantically buying […]

Happy NY.

Oh hey 2016. You’ve got a tough act to follow as 2015 was pretty ace. The year I became a mummy.

The things nobody tells you about being a mum.

Becoming a mum is such a big deal. It’s the hugest thing you’ll ever do and suddenly everyone is full of advice. i.e. “Oooh you definitely need to get this pushchair” and “Make sure you get plenty of sleep because when baby arrives you’ll never sleep again.” But there’s lots that people don’t tell you. So […]

The Mum Manual

The Mum Manual.

Unfortunately there’s no manual, it’d be ace if there was. Sure you can Google away, ask the health visitors or spend your time looking at parenting forums but there’s no concrete ‘this is what you do’ guide, instead it’s up to you. Scary!
