I can’t believe my little Roo is going to be 2 just before Christmas! A lot of the presents we got him are from the Aldi wooden toy sale but here are some other bits and bobs that I think would be great for a toddler.

Baby Christmas Gift Guide*

For Ruben’s first Christmas, he was only 10 days old, and so his main Christmas present was the gift of life after a 3 day back-to-back labour. We did get him a few little bits, and last Christmas we did buy quite a few more presents. Here are some of the best gifts for a baby in your life this year.

AD| Spooky Treats you can make for a Halloween party at home

So, it looks like Halloween is going to be pretty weird this year and I have to admit, I’m a little gutted. That said, I’m determined not to let the Rona ruin everything, so if we can’t go out to parties, or Trick or Treating, let’s bring the fun home and make the whole of October full of spooky snacks and games.

Getting Control of my Finances*

I have always been a little bit rubbish with money. My parents were rubbish with money and it seems it rubbed off on me. There was a point in my late teens where I had to resort to payday loans, to, y’know, eat and stuff, so my credit rating isn’t the best.  That said, I am determined to buy a …

AD| Planning our dream home

Precious Keepsake Ideas for your Babies

Some of these products were gifted, but the words and opinions are all my own! I’m a sentimental person – even more so since having a baby. Just last week it was Ruben’s first hair cut and you better believe that I chose a salon specifically based on the fact that they provide you with a certificate and a lock …

AD| My Favourite Easy Veggie Meal for the Whole Family

This is a sponsored post with the supermarket, Jacks. But all words and opinions are my own.  When it comes to deciding on weekly meals, I always try to find at least a few dishes that we can all have together – partially because it’s nice to all have the same thing, and it encourages Steven and I to eat …

AD| Using SVGs for Crafting

This is a sponsored post but all words and opinions are mine. One thing you might not know about me, is that I love to craft. Whether that’s decoupaging anything that stays in one place for too long, trying out some Pinterest painting techniques, or upcycling odds and ends from around the house, to create a DIY Music wall. That’s …
