• How I make quick personalised kids clothing

    I love personalised items, especially for the boys – for one thing it means things don’t go missing at nursery! However they can become a bit expensive so I have had a go at making my own personalised kids clothing. We decided on a name this time but will also try initials and possibly other woods in future – Freddie really wants one to say Dude next time! What did I use? I had a hoody which was from Primark, it think £6 and it’s ones of Freddie’s favourites. You could just at well use a tshirt, jacket even the top of some jogging bottoms? I don’t think there is…

  • Dexters bedroom – monochrome, yellow & mint

    The idea for Dexter’s room started long before he was born. I knew that whatever gender baby I had I wanted a colour pallet of mint green, yellow and grey with some monochrome. When we did Freddie’s nursery it was very generic, beige and baby ready but always meant we would have to update when he got older. As it turned out we moved house and so came up with his London themed room anyway, but I didn’t want this with my second babies room. I wanted something with a little more longevity and also a little different.   I’m so pleased with how Dexter’s room has turned out and…

  • Exotic Zoo Telford

    Sometimes you get that used to the things around you, that you miss the gems that are right on your door step – that’s what almost happened to us with the gem of a place Exotic Zoo Telford . We decided to go on a whim, after hearing about it a few times but not really venturing into it much more that. What an error that was, I can safely say it’s a lovely place to goand it isn’t too long to spend their either, short attention spans wont be a problem and you can go in the morning and still have plenty of time to go and have a…

  • Neon LED ice lolly light review with GetGingerSnap

    As we have been updating most rooms in the house, the kitchen has been having some finishing touches too, I love wall art and the last thing I had on my list to add was a neon wall sign of some sort. Get Ginger Snap contacted us to see if we would like to review one of their LED lights from their range available and I choose an ice lolly light as I thought it looked really striking and would be really fun in the kitchen – especially as Freddie is asking for ice lollies out of the freezer all day long at the moment. I was expecting quite a…

  • A day with Bambo and friends at Kelmarsh hall and Gardens

    You may have seen that a few weeks ago we got to try some Bambo Nature nappies for Dexter and we really enjoyed using them supporting their eco-background. They have suited Dex really well and they have proven hit in our family. We were excited to find out that Bambo have released some skin care products such as oils, lotions and creams and we were asked to the launch of these vegan friendly and cruelty free products along with some other lovely bloggers. We headed over to Kelmarsh Hall & Gardens and as soon as we arrived at the beautiful gardens we were able to get involved in some eco-crafts. We made some gorgeous…

  • The difference a bit of sun makes!

    Hasn’t it been so lovley the past couple of weeks that we have been able to have some proper sunshine and proper time outside for those long days of play. In the paddling pool, drying off in the sun, back in and repeat. It makes such a difference getting some of that vitamin d and the sunshine rays and I definitely feel much better having spent my whole day outdoors. The boys are much more chilled too, they really only need the simplest of things to have fun outside don’t they. Freddie’s favourite pastime is lifting up bricks and rolling logs to look for any fun critters underneath. Dexter’s is…

  • Enjoying an afternoon tea at Halesowen golf club

    Me and my fave gal Twinderelmo  love lusting over delicious, tasty treats and very rarely make a date and do anything about it. However, we ADORE an afternoon tea as it’s a chance to spoil ourselves, over indulge and have a good natter, so when we were invited to Halesowen Golf Club to try their new afternoon tea menu, there really was only one answer! it wasn’t too far a trip for us and it’s quite a pretty one,  The golf club just appears down a lovely wooded lane that is dotted with bluebells, daffodils and of course the beautifully sculpted fairway. I was quite nervous arriving as I have never…

  • Meegos – series one review

    As a child I loved collectible series – I think we all must have had some at one point. Fast forward a few decades down the line and my own children are now in the realms of collectibles. The ones Freddie tends to have are annoyingly small, plastic and most definitely lost and forgotten once they are put in his toy box. we have been asked to review Meegos and Mini Meegos first series collectible toys – with a twist – they are plush! I love this idea and I know that he is more likely to keep them in sight as he will sleep with them as they are…

  • Nuu moblie T2 tablet review

    I thought for a long time that Freddie would not be bothered with having a tablet and that we would never be those parents whose children use one in a given situation. Well actually we are. We so are. Initially it started with him using the SmartTV remote to put YouTube on and watch his favourite channels. Then he wanted our phones which we didn’t agree to as I feel that’s when I can become constant – I always have my phone on me and I don’t want him to think it’s always accessible. He has been at nursery for eight months and I can see the shift in his increasing independence and…
