Christmas Eve Basket 2018

I can't believe it's Christmas in less than three weeks, so I thought it was about time I shared what is in this year's Christmas Eve basket for the girls.

Me and the girls at the park earlier.


A Family Photoshoot - October 2018

We recently had a photoshoot to celebrate Amelia's first birthday. We wanted to do a cake smash for her (which I will share in another post), just like we did with Sophie, but we also wanted some recent photos of us as a family. Sadly, I can only count on one hand just how many photos we have of us all together, as a family of four.


My Sunday Photo #16

The girls' ready for their Halloween party. Sophie was dressed as Harry Potter and Amelia went as Hermione!


Amelia's Swan Themed First Birthday Party

We celebrated Amelia's first birthday last weekend and we also threw her a little party where we invited our close family and friends. As you probably guessed from the title of this post, it was a swan theme and I'm really pleased with how it turned out!


Choosing Flooring For Our New Family Home

You may remember a few months ago, in one of my previous posts, I shared that my partner and I had bought our very first house together! After renting various houses for over five years, we are so excited to finally own the perfect family home and be able to put our own stamp on it over the coming years.


Amelia's 1st Birthday Presents

It's Amelia's first birthday later this month, so I thought I'd share the presents we've got her. So if you're looking for some inspiration (or you just like reading this type of post), then I hope you find it useful.


PTSD After Birth Trauma

I've been meaning to write this post for a while now, however I always find the personal posts really difficult to write. I guess that is understandable when I'm about to open up and talk about something which isn't spoken about enough.


Restarting My Slimming World Journey

If you've followed my blog for a while, you may remember seeing a post about me joining Slimming World last year. I managed to lose over half a stone in a few short weeks... although it soon became a struggle to follow the plan when I found out I was pregnant, due to sickness.


Setting Up Our Home Entertainment

Over the years, we have slowly improved our entertainment system throughout our home and I'm looking forward to be able to set everything up again when we move house at the end of the year. 


Sophie's Moana Themed Birthday Party

We recently celebrated Sophie's fifth birthday and a couple of weeks ago, we hosted a party for her in our local community centre. Sophie decided on a Moana theme, so I thought I would share some of the decorative items I picked up for it.


Vileda Kids Pass & Giveaway

We're very excited to be working with Vileda again, as you may already know we're huge fans of their cleaning products! They have a new campaign which launched at the beginning of June, which I can't wait to tell you about. So if you want to know more, keep reading this post...


Sophie's 5th Birthday Presents

It's Sophie's 5th birthday in just a couple of days, so I thought I'd write a post on what presents we've bought her this year. I've been buying a couple of things here and there over the past few months, in preparation for her birthday.


An Evening Walk Through Astley Park

We recently went for a walk with the girls to one of our local parks. It was so lovely to get out and about, just the four of us. We went for a little evening stroll, and it was the perfect time to go, as it wasn't too hot for the kids and it wasn't overcrowded with people either.


Preparing For Weaning

We're recently started weaning Amelia, as you may know she recently turned six months old - which is the recommended age to start introducing food. So today I thought I would share a few things I have purchased to prepare for this new weaning journey!


10 Things I Wish I'd Known Before My C-Section

10 Things I Wish I'd Known Before My C-Section

After having an emergency c-section almost six months ago, I thought I would share 10 things I wish I had known and what I hadn't expected. If you haven't read Amelia's birth story, then you probably won't know that my induction ended in an emergency c-section due to a failed induction. I was absolutely terrified and I had no idea what to expect, so I hope you find this post useful.


What My Kids Wore #2

As it was the Easter holidays last week, I thought it would be fun to share a couple of the girls' outfits. So this week I'm joining in with What My Kid Wore, which I've been meaning to link up to again for a while now.


Life Lately #4 | Maternity Leave, Mental Health & Moving House

This post is pretty long overdue, as it's one I've been meaning to write it for quite some time! However you know how it goes sometimes, life is just super busy at the moment and I've got quite a few things to update you on.


Newborn Bathtime Essentials

Newborn Bathtime Essentials

Now that Amelia is five months old, I thought I would start sharing some of our favourite newborn products with you - which you might find useful if you're currently expecting and on the lookout for products for your newborn.


My Sunday Photo #15 - Happy Easter!

I love this photo of the girls wearing their matching bunny ears for Easter!


March 2018 Wishlist

It's been a while since I've done a wishlist post and there are so many things I'm lusting after at the moment, so I thought I would share them with you.


Blogger Q&A

I was tagged by Stevie from The Cornish Mum to answer a few random questions, which I thought would be fun - as it's been a while since I've done one of these!


Siblings [March 2018]

Another month seems to have flown by and it's that time again to share a couple more photos of my girls!


Easter Basket 2018

I've just finished putting this year's Easter Basket together and I'm so excited to share it with you all. I've been ordering a few bits here and there for a month or so now and I'm so pleased with how it's come together.


Siblings [February 2018]

Yesterday was Valentine's Day, so I just had to take a photo of my two little loves together and I thought this photo would be perfect for this month's sibling post too!


Valentine's Day Children's Books 2018

As Valentine's Day is just over a week away, I thought I would share what's on Sophie's bookshelves this year, since I recently switched her books around. Plus we have a few new additions this year!


Amelia's Three Month Update

I thought it was about time I wrote an update for our baby girl, Amelia. I had intended to start writing regular weekly updates in the beginning and then monthly updates after the first month or two. However, as always, things didn't turned out as I planned and I guess you could say that life just got in the way, especially adjusting to having two children!


Girls Joules Wishlist 2018

I'm always browsing online at different things and I think it's safe to say, I love a good wishlist! Although admittedly, it's usually clothes or other bits for the girls! I recently had a browse on the Joules website and compiled a list of my favourite girls clothes from their range - which I thought I would share with you!


Amelia's Birth Story

You may have seen we recently welcomed our second baby girl and today I'm finally going to be finally sharing her birth story with you. It was another planned induction, but this time due to a number of reduced movements. My first birth was very straightforward and I naively expected a similar experience this time around, however nothing ever turns out the way you think and it couldn't have been more different to how I imagined.


Amelia's Newborn Photoshoot

I think having a child is by far one of the most amazing things to happen in life, but the days seem to go so quickly, which is why I wanted some nice photos of the girls together. I wanted to remember these days and the little details when they're so tiny and new - which I've found can be quickly forgotten in the newborn haze. I guess that's the reason I started this blog, so I could document this journey with you all and I have somewhere to share these precious memories. 


Siblings [January 2018]

I'm back with the first post of The Siblings Project for 2018. I'm hoping I remember to take a photo each month, so by the end of the year I will have 12 photos of my girls to look back on!

Adding The Finishing Touches To Amelia's Nursery

You may have seen the original nursery tour, which I shared a few months back. So I thought I would give you a little update on how it currently looks, now that we've added a few finishing touches.


Cheeky Chompers MultiMuslin & Neckerchew | Review

We were sent some products from the new Cheeky Chompers muslin range and have been using them over the past few months and I couldn't wait to share our thoughts with you! 


My Goals For 2018

I just wanted to wish you all a Happy New Year! I can't wait to see what 2018 brings. I've written a list of goals I would like to achieve by the end of this year and I can't wait to see how many I achieve.
