I feel like I’ve written a post very similar to this before… the thing is, I’m a total sucker for pretty packaging, and anything pink or pastel coloured (take these cupcakes, for example, they weren’t even that tasty but they look pretty)…. These are the products I am loving at the moment, that also happen to look totally Instagram worthy on my dressing table… Garnier Soothing Botanical Toner Rimmel 60...

Protecting my Phone in Style with My Personalised Case

A few weeks ago I got a new phone after my old one developed a fault with its speaker. I upgraded to the iPhone 8 Plus and I had been looking around for a nice case for it when I was contacted by the people at My Personalised Case, offering to send me one from their site. Perfect timing! My Personalised Case offer personalised phone cases for a range of...

Mummy Mondays – Trying Out the Idaho Jones Gallivant Baby Changing Backpack

At the end of the month we are going on our first camping trip and cruise within a few days of each other. With the three young children, including Benjamin who’s just over a year and a half, I need to be confident that I have everything I might need to hand at any one time but I don’t want to be lugging around cumbersome bags when we are out...

5 Things – Summer Date Ideas

With the three kids, finding time for a date night isn’t always our top priority. Ed and I used to ensure we made an effort to have a dedicated night just for us once a month, but we have fallen into bad habits and, with the Bourmemouth Bloggers network having more events lately, I have had a busy diary and we just haven’t gone on as many dates lately. As...

Beauty – Origins Ginzing™ Ultra-Hydrating Energy-Boosting Cream

If you checked out my week in the life vlog, or follow me on Instagram, you may have seen me mention that I bought myself some beauty treats with a gift card in Marks and Spencer’s recently. They were items that I loved the look of, but simply wouldn’t have been able to justify had I not of had the gift card to spend. One of my favourites from the...
