Super Mario Aqua Beads Review 

Aqua Beads are fast becoming a popular activity amongst children of all ages. The kits allow kids to create pictures using the included multicoloured beads and magically preserve them using just water.  My children love crafts at the moment so when the lovely people at Aqua Beads offered to send over a Super Mario kit for my little minions to review we jumped at the chance.  The kit arrived quickly...

Mummy Mondays – Family Time at Oasis Fun Bournemouth 

Yesterday, on a cold Sunday afternoon, Ed and I decided to take the children to Oasis Fun, the new leisure complex in Bournemouth. The children were excited, and I was looking forward to being able to sit down, after one too many Proseccos at a Christmas party the night before.  Oasis Fun is situated in the centre of town, just up from the main shops on Glenfern Road. The complex...

Christmas Gift Guide – Newborn Babies

Yes, I realise Benjamin is only just over a month old and thus he doesn’t really understand the concept of Christmas just yet. However, as I have the older two children, I don’t like to not have any presents for Benjamin to ‘open’ on Christmas morning. I’ve gone for a mixture of age appropriate toys, clothing and books for Benjamin’s first Christmas.  Miffy Little Star Rattle Bean Toy £9.95 Amazon ...

Beauty – Maybelleine Dream Velvet Foundation Review

I’m a bit of a creature of habit when it comes to makeup and once I find something I like I don’t tend to change it for a long while. I started using No7 stay perfect foundation a good while ago and other than the price being a little higher than I can strictly justify (it’s only £15 but I do have 3 kids!), it’s served me well.  When I...

Wedding Wednesday – Update on Our Wedding Plans

I can’t remember the last time I properly posted about our own wedding, the main one, the one abroad, as opposed to our UK celebration back home. We booked it way back in February, just before we found out we were expecting little baby Benjamin, and since then I’ve not really thought about it as much as I would have if I hadn’t of had pregnancy and baby stuff keeping...

What’s in a Name? The Story Behind my Blog 

Have you ever wondered how bloggers come up with the names for their blogs? I’m always interested in hearing the story (unless it’s just their name, that’s pretty self explanatory).  This is actually my second blog, my first being From Fallenangel to Yummy Mummy. I wrote that blog, unsurprisingly, when Cameron was born. The title reflected the transition my life had taken at the time. My nickname as a teenager...

Mummy Monday – Benjamin Turns One Month 

How is my baby already a month old? It seems crazy how fast time goes when you aren’t heavily pregnant and wishing the days away anymore!  Benjamin turned one month on Friday and I seriously feel like I’ve blinked and missed the past month. I think it’s because he’s going to be my last baby that I feel I need to bottle up the emotions of these first months and...

Christmas Gift Guide – Girls

I have no idea what age I will need to be to be able to consider myself a woman rather than a girl, but I’m not quite there yet at 27… perhaps I’m kidding myself… Anywho, this was the easiest gift guide to put together because it’s basically just a wish list (in fact some of the items I am getting for Christmas).  I may have got a little carried...
