5 Reasons I love using cloth nappies (Plus a competition!)

I’ve been using cloth nappies with little Roo since he was 6 weeks old and I bloody love them. I love chatting to other cloth bum Mums and also to those who are just curious about the realities of using cloth – I know for sure I have converted a few families into cloth nappies and I love spreading the …

The Best Gifts for a One-year-old

Hilariously, it’s taken me 6 months+ 9 months to write this guide to the best gifts for a one-year-old, because having a baby is super busy. I started this when he’d just had his first birthday, and although it’s massively out of date now, I still wanted to finish it as I think it’ll be really useful for people looking …

Visiting Center Parcs after Lockdown (With a toddler and children)

We’ve just come back from a lovely weekend in Center Parcs – our third time visiting Center Parcs but first time staying in Sherwood. I’d love to try one of the other locations next. I was a little worried about going to Center Parcs after lockdown, and for a while I wasn’t sure if our little holiday was even going …

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 …

Yes, I’m Still Breastfeeding my Toddler

I love breastfeeding (most of the time, but deffo not always!), but this post isn’t to shame anyone who didn’t want to/couldn’t breastfeed, or who hasn’t carried it on as long as I’ve chosen to. I’m not about that, boo. On the 15th of June, I will have been feeding Ruben for 18 whole months. That is around 547 days …

DIY Music Wall

I’ve seen these cute music walls all over the lockdown parenting groups and I kept just writing them off as something nice, but that I won’t ever own.  But then I suddenly thought – well why not? I’m a strong independent woman. My baby LOVES music. Why can’t I make him a music wall? And so it began! When it …

AD| Roo Rocks Spanish Style with La Coqueta

I was gifted this little outfit before lockdown (remember those times?!) and I’ve been trying to find a good time to post. I figured that actually, I want to share my little ray of sunshine looking super adorable and Corona isn’t going to stop me. So here goes. As Ruben grows older, he is really growing into his own little …

I think I’m doing Isolation Wrong.

I’m not sure really where to start right now. In the past few weeks, everything has gone to shit (excuse my French), and we appear to be in a sort-of, not-quite-but-pretty-much Lockdown. While everyone else seems to be baking bread, learning Mandarin, renovating their houses and binge watching Tiger King, I… am not.
