Travel & Tourism Tuesday – Our Trip to Weymouth Sealife Centre & The Octonauts Octo-Glow Explorers Event 

Cameron and Carly absolutely love the Ocotnauts. They have a few of the DVDs and they often play with the octopod Cameron got for one of this birthdays pretending to be Kwazii and Peso. They also both love animals, and sealife in particular. One of their favourite places locally is the oceanarium so when I was offered the chance to take the children to Weymouth Sealife Centre to review their...

Benjamin at 8 Months 

The months are still flying by. I feel like an awful mum as I actually totally missed Benjamin turning 8 months on Sunday. In my defence, we had an absolutely amazing weekend and I spent Sunday being the ‘hostess with the mostess’ at our family barbecue.  Better late than never, I did a little photo shoot in the garden with Benjamin’s milestone cards.

Fofolino was created by a mother of four young children aged 2-5 who wanted something a little more luxurious from the burping cloths she had experienced so far.  The muslin squares are...

December Date Night Box – Meet me Under the Mistletoe

After our amazing date night back in November courtesy of the brilliant new subscription box Get Date Night, Ed and I were so excited to receive our December box. I was secretly hoping it would have a festive theme and, although the theme itself isn’t Christmassy, there was a sprig of mistletoe in the box with the cutest slogan print to go alongside (made for a perfect Instagram shot too,...
