AD| Magical Touches for Christmas this year

I don’t think it’s unfair to say “What. A. Year”! I think we all need a little extra festive cheer this year, and so, before I start with my gift guides, I have put together this little Etsy guide of little touches for making Christmas extra magical this year.  This post features affiliate links. Christmas Sensory Play Kit I love …

How I set myself up for a good week – Sometimes*

This post contains a gifted product A Sunday well-spent brings a week of content, or so they say. The way I see it, the more you can plan and prepare, the less terrifying the week might be (*depending on children/sleep/current events etc) and I’ve been working to hone this routine – it’s a work-in-progress but here’s where we’re at. Meal …

#Ad – Personalised Socks with my face on?!

I don’t know if it’s because I’m someone who never found her name written in glitter on headbands, or on keyrings in gift shops – woe is me – but I am all about personalised gifts. So when Printsfield asked if I wanted to order some personalised socks with my FACE on them, I was super excited! I didn’t know just how much I wanted to see my mug on a pair of socks, until that email landed in my inbox and now it feels like a lifelong dream!

Music In Unison – A Must-Try Class

Some people are wine connoisseurs (I personally like ‘em sweet and cheap – like me.) while others know everything there is to know about designer handbags, but me, I like to think of myself as somewhat of an authority on baby classes. I bloody LOVE a good baby group, whether it’s messy play or Makaton, a majority of my hard-earned …

Am I a mummy blogger now? Rebranding!

I’ve never really known where exactly (if anywhere) I fit into the blogosphere. I’m certainly not a beauty blogger – I barely remember to take my make up off, and just a quick look at my dinosaur dress will tell you that I am not a fashion blogger. I do write about travel, but let’s be honest, I don’t have …

How to support a nursing partner with breastfeeding

Just because you’re not lactating yourself, doesn’t mean that the process is nothing to do with you! Even if your partner isn’t planning on expressing or combi-feeding, which means you can’t help by giving bottled milk, that doesn’t mean there isn’t anything you can do to help. My husband was super helpful, especially in those incredibly difficult early days, and …

Simple Self-care for Busy Mums

When you’re a mum (which I have been for over 6 months now and still can’t believe it!), self-care is the last thing on your mind, behind feeding the baby, changing the baby, winding the baby, naps, cleaning, developmental milestones, sensory play, potential dangers, future schools, and attempting to leave the house with the least amount of vomit on your clothes.

How to celebrate your birthday during COVID-19*

Birthday parties are great excuses to meet your friends after a long time, and have a whale of a time with them as you party all night. However, in the current times of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have had very quiet birthday celebrations just within the four walls of our homes. Why let the pandemic dampen our spirits when we …

Being a Mum: the Good, the Bad and the Ugly

I can’t believe that this Mother’s Day, I’m an actual Mum. Last year I was a bit sad as we had been trying to conceive and it felt as though it was never going to happen. Thankfully, this year I am writing this while Baby Roo sleeps next to me, looking precious and making my heart want to burst. Obviously it’s a bittersweet one, as it’s my first one as a Mum, but also my first without my own Mum. But today, I want to focus on my first 3.5 months of Mum’ing and what it’s really been like.
