Here are the 5 things I am most looking forward to this Christmas.. Christmas Baking I love baking but I never really make time for it. Christmas is the perfect excuse to get creative in the...

Creating my Perfect Christmas Party Makeup Look with MeMeMe Cosmetics

Last week I was invited down to Beales department store, in Bournemouth, where MeMeMe Cosmetics had recently opened up a stand, for their blogger event. I will be honest, before the event I hadn’t really heard of the brand before, so I wasn’t sure what to expect when I headed over before my review visit to The Stable. The event was very casual, with those invited able to attend anytime...

Mummy Mondays – A Wonderbly Christmas

I can’t believe its been almost a year since we did our very first review with Wonderbly for their fantastic Lost my Name book. Since then, the blog has come on leaps and bounds and I have reviewed several other titles including The Birthday Thief, The Incredible Intergalatic Journey Home and most recently Kingdom of You. Today I wanted to share with you one of Wonderbly’s newest creations, My Golden...

My Monthly Plans – December

It’s December – wooo! I’m not gonna lie, december is by far my favourite month of the entire year. I am a big Christmas fan, and I love all the excitement this month brings, especially now I have children. I managed to finish my Christmas shopping and wrapping last weekend, which is a first for me, so now I’m all ready for a month full of festive fun and time...

Style – Finding the Perfect Christmas Party Outfit – A Gift from Quiz Clothing

Today marks the end of November, and I for one am very excited about the month ahead! December is generally filled with Christmas parties, festive drinks and the chance to let your hair down and get dressed up to celebrate arguably the most wonderful time of the year! I have really enjoyed putting together my style posts recently, so when I was approached by Quiz Clothing, asking if I would...

Mummy Mondays – The Perfect Gift for Mums this Christmas with Times To Treasure

With Christmas now under a month away (eek), thoughts are definitely centred around the perfect gift for those close to you. The most beautiful gift I’ve ever received before was a necklace with the footprints of my eldest two children. I was devastated when I lost it a couple of years ago after a house move so when the lovely Grainne from Times to Treasure in Poole said she would...

Christmas Gift Guide for The Girl Boss

Christmas is just five weeks away, and if you are anything like me you’ll be all shopped out, itching to get the tree up, and already thinking about those pigs in blankets and tubs of Christmas chocolates! If, however, you aren’t like me and haven’t yet started your Christmas gift shopping, here are some gift ideas for those girls who work from home (or y’know, women in general really). If...

Mummy Mondays – The Kingdom of Carly – Another Wonderbly Birthday!

Last Thursday my not so little girl turned five! She’s always felt like my baby, even when I went on to have Benjamin last year, so it has been strange adjusting to her starting school recently. In the past couple of months she’s really grown up and I was so proud when her teacher told me she was a pleasure to have in the class, and that Carly is really...

Mummy Mondays – Gift Guide for Children Aged 5-8

With three kids, Christmas can be incredibly expensive. All three of our children also have birthdays in the months leading up to Christmas, so I need to be strict on budget when it comes to this time of year. Generally speaking, buying for children is easier than adults as they always have lots of ideas of what they want, but without sounding mean, sometimes what they want isn’t necessarily that...

Christmas Gift Guide – For the Man in Your Life 

Now we are a full week into November I think it’s totally acceptable to be talking about Christmas. I’ve got a few gift guides coming up over the next couple of weeks but I thought I would start with gift ideas for the man in your life. Ed is totally hard to buy for as he never really lets on to what it is he wants, unless he’s lusting over...
