Apologies for the rather late post but I’ve had yet another busy day, hopefully things will calm down a little now that it’s half term, on second thoughts who am I kidding?!

We’ve had a fantastic, fun-filled few weeks which at times has felt like its been none stop till I literally drop. I dropped just over a week ago with the most horrendous sore throat and despite having next to no voice then sounding much-like a man I continued to do my very best to troop on.

There were times when I crawled into a bed for a few hours extra rest here and there but us ladies need our beauty sleep right?… Read more from this post

Our daughter E seems to have a bit of thing for those ‘surprise egg’ videos which there seem to be endless amounts of on Kids YouTube. Lord knows why she enjoys watching a random stranger unwrapping or unboxing toys but it seems to keep her entertained and who am I to argue otherwise?

L.O.L Surprise Doll

Much to E’s delight we were recently sent a L.O.L Series 2 Surprise Doll to review, L.O.L Surprise Dolls are a multilayered modern-day pass-the-parcel for one or more to enjoy, much like an over-sized surprise egg only spherical, they each feature seven layers of surprises for children to unwrap and to enjoy.… Read more from this post

Here we are once again at yet another Friday, I seriously cannot work out where the time gets to these days. It’s not as if I’m working full-time but somehow having a part-time job, two kids and a household to take care of seems to be more than enough to keep me occupied. It certainly seems to make the time fly by that’s for sure!

Don’t get me wrong, I like my children to have ‘nice’ things but that doesn’t always mean those things must always be ‘new’. It really irks me that we seem to be such a throw-away society these days, thus why I will happily look for second-hand deals both on and offline for my children.

This week for example I have managed to acquire a bundle of school tights and socks for E, a Next ‘Bunny themed’ school coat and a pair of trainers for the kids. So long as it’s in good condition, a quick wash and tumble dry should revitalise any second-hand clothing.… Read more from this post

I don’t know about you but I personally am unable to leave the house without having applied adequate amounts of makeup and having brushed my hair through thoroughly. It’s not that I’m a Beauty Queen or vain in any which way, it’s more that I’d rather not risk scaring the public whilst out and about.

For the same reasons I have yet to leave the house without having doused myself in deodorant and having spritzed myself with at least six squirts of one of the following perfumes. I tend to separate the perfumes according to price and stick to the cheaper options whilst going about my day-to-day life, nights out are another matter!… Read more from this post
