Drink Like A Diva With Miu Color

Prior to becoming a parent leaving the house was a fairly simple task, I casually slipped on some clothes, threw on some makeup, grabbed my handbag, phone and keys and I was ready to rock and roll out of the door within minutes.

Following having children I very quickly realised that leaving the house was no longer a simple task, it now required great amounts of planning, packing and precise scheduling to be within a chance of leaving the house at all never mind arriving at my planned destination within time.

Thankfully as the kids have got older things seems to have become that bit easier, they no longer require me to carry mass amounts of equipment.…

Blogging Behind The Scenes- Is Reviewing Products ‘Tit For Tat’ Or Worthwhile?

Welcome to this weeks edition of the ‘Blogging Behind The Scenes’ series. Throughout the ‘Blogging Behind The Scenes’ series both myself and a group of bloggers will be sharing our experiences and advice upon a range of blogging related topics, this week we are discussing product reviews and whether bloggers feel they are ‘tit for tat’ or a worthwhile venture.

Why And When I First Began Reviewing Products

Following having our son J back in 2009 I set about creating an online magazine/ blog to share informative posts for fellow parents regarding products and tips that I had found to be either useful or a total waste of time.…

Sensory Success With The Stretch Scooby Doo Toy

Our son J loves to sit and fiddle with things, he has a short attention span at the best of times and as a result we often find him playing and tinkering with toys slightly differently to how most children might play.

It doesn’t bother me in the slightest that J sees things slightly differently, nor that he plays differently to most children, it’s just how he is and so long as he’s happy then that’s all that matters really.

There are a few toys however that J seems naturally drawn towards, those stress ball type, malleable toys which allow J to pull, poke and fiddle with to his heart’s content.…

Looking At The World Imaginatively With CBeebies New Show ‘Kazoops’

The children seem to be really enjoying their time at home for the Easter Holidays. So far we have managed to keep the kids busy, entertained and most importantly happy at home. The holidays are the time to kick back, to relax and to enjoy our time together as a family and whilst I like to keep the children active there comes a time when I hold my hands up, submit and allow us all a little screen time.

What better way to relax after a busy day running around castles, scaling soft play, baking biscuits, or burning off the beans at bouncy castle madness sessions than by curling up on the sofa and catching up on some television?…

Transform Your Windows From Drab To Divine With Custom Made Window Dressings From Make My Blinds

Following the completion of our extension Paul and I spent a great deal of time decorating, furnishing and adding the finishing touches to our beautiful new bedroom and en suite bathroom.

Having spent time living in numerous houses over the years I have slept in a range of bedrooms none of which have been comparable in terms of quality or size. Our new room is far bigger than any of our previous bedrooms and with the added en suite it feels as if we are living in luxury!

I’m not saying bigger is better but having the space to fit a king size bed, a dressing table, two sets of bedside drawers, a dresser and a large set of double wardrobes whilst still being able to stretch out feels great.…
