#LittleLoves- Turning Back To My Twenties & Other Cheesy Delights

I cannot believe that it is Friday yet again, seriously where does time go? As always on a Friday, here are my #LittleLoves from throughout the week.

 

READ

This week there are two words which have cropped up continuously whilst I have been reading other blogs (as I do on a daily basis) and those are ‘BritMums Live‘. BritMums is apparently “the UK’s buzziest social media conference and blogger event, where lifestyle bloggers and social influencers gather to meet and socialise, network with brands, improve their skills, and fire their creativity. BritMums Live has grown out of BritMums, the UK’s largest parent blogger community, made up of nearly 8,000 influential bloggers who create content about lifestyle, crafting, food, health, travel, education, tech, style and more.”

I want to go, OH MY GOD, I SOOOO WANT TO GO!!!…

A Top Tip For Baby Massage

For parents that practice massaging their babies and children, it is certainly worth knowing that Baby Oil is not the best thing to be using on your child’s skin. Baby Oil does not soak into the skin, instead it simply makes the skin greasy. Baby Oil can also block the pores and cause irritation due to the perfumes often used even in the more sensitive brands.

Rather than using marketed and usually over-priced baby oils, it is far better for your both your child’s skin and your own to simply use Olive Oil or alternatively, Grape Seed Oil. Not only is it better for skin but it is also better for your spends as it is far more cost-effective!…

One Step Forward, Two Steps Back

Ever have those days when no matter how hard you try to do your very best, luck is just against you? That seems to be how today has gone…

The new sofa from Harvey’s FINALLY arrived following a five month wait. We are still waiting for the matching recliner chair, but that’s another matter. As expected the delivery men managed to catch me in my dressing gown, shiny with sweat from having lugged the old sofa to the opposite end of the room and hoovering the space where it had once been which was littered with raisins, Cocoa Pops and other random kids snacks that had managed to sift through our previous sofa.…

Simple, Quick and Easy Book Shelving Solutions

If there’s one thing that a child can never have enough of nor be spoilt by, it’s books. Reading is an amazing gift, being able to escape into other Worlds through words and pictures.  I personally believe that reading should only ever be encouraged. However, I do find that storage for all those wonderful books on the other hand can certainly be tricky at times. There often isn’t adequate space in children’s rooms to store books effectively. There are however a range of storage solutions available ideal for this very problem…

I personally use a wardrobe to store the majority of the kids books in, then each child has a shelf in their room with a range of reading material which is rotated on a weekly basis.…

Little Chef Living Arrows

It’s Monday once again, Bank Holiday Monday to be precise. If I haven’t already explained ‘Living Arrows’ is a blog series/ linky focused on celebrating childhood. The project originally took it’s name from a poem by Kahlil Gibran, “You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth” and every Monday I will be sharing two photographs from the past week to celebrate childhood and as part of Living Arrows.

We love baking in our household, E is such a little chef and loves to measure out the ingredients, stir the mix and of course, most of all she likes to lick the bowl when we’ve finished. …
