Disclosure: We were kindly sent a Messy Me Designs Highchair cushion for the purpose of this review Over the years of being a mum, I think I’ve tried every bit of baby equipment going – I would actually go as far to say that I’m a bit of an oracle when it comes to prams, car seats and highchairs.  We’ve had a vast selection of all of the above throughout the last 9 years and you definitely get to know what you like and what works for you.  One product I’ve always loved and recommended is the IKEA Antilop Highchair…

The summer holidays are over, and back to school is in full swing – along with the cooler, damper mornings. Instead of mourning summer and days on the beach, it just makes me want to plan another family holiday. Life can be incessant, particularly when you have school age children, as you are always thinking about homework, after school clubs and trying to get everyone out of the house on time. For me its important to have something to look forward to – whether thats a big holiday abroad, a trip to the coast, or a long weekend away. With…

Disclosure: We were kindly sent these lovely toys in exchange for a honest review – all photographs and opinions are my own. When an email dropped in to my inbox a little while ago, asking if we would like to be Play Panel Ambassadors for Melissa and Doug, I jumped at the chance. We first became fans of Melissa and Doug about 9 years ago when Izzie was a baby and my mother in law bought her a gorgeous M&D Abacus for a present. Unlike a lot of toys, that Abacus is still going strong now, despite being played with…

Disclosure: I was kindly gifted one SwimFin and the Floaties in exchange for an honest review and as part of our brand ambassadorship with Swimfin for 2019. All opinions and photographs are my own.  As a child I was lucky to have weekly swimming lessons at school, and since growing top and having my own children both me and my husband both love the water and have always encouraged our children to swim. This went well with our eldest Izzie, now 9 who had lessons and was a total water baby, but failed slightly with our second child Ollie, now…

Disclosure: I was kindly gifted the AMAWrap in exchange for an honest review. All opinions and photographs are my own.  Having four children means that I’m massively outnumbered. Being able to have my hands free to hold on to little people who are a flight risk is really important (if you’ve met my four year old you’ll understand what I mean). I realised this when I had three children and I quickly became a fan of baby wearing. Before I had Mason in 2015 I had dabbled in different slings and had soft wrap type sling with both the boys…

I haven’t had the urge to sit down and just write for a very long time. In truth, since making more videos over on youtube, its been easier to just sit in front of the camera and have a chat. Although I also haven’t been doing much of that recently either to be honest. Having four kids is everything I thought it would be and more. I love watching them interact with each other (read that as fight when it comes to the boys), love seeing how their relationships with each other grow and its been the most amazing thing…
