Halloween Basket 2020

If you're a regular reader of this blog, you will know how much I love putting together themed baskets. So today I wanted to share what I've included in this year's Halloween basket.


Our Playroom Halloween Decor

With Halloween just around the corner, I thought it would be fun to share how we've decorated our playroom! In all honesty, we usually just switch up the books on our shelves to Halloween themed ones. However I wanted to make it more fun for the girls, so I decided to make a bit more effort than usual this year.


Amelia's 3rd Birthday Gifts

It's Amelia's 3rd birthday in less than two weeks, so I thought I would share the gifts we've bought for her birthday this year. I love reading similar posts for gift ideas, so hopefully this will help you too if you're looking for inspiration!


Nordgreen Watches Review | AD

Disclosure - this is a paid partnership with Nordgreen. I received the watch featured for the purpose of this post, however all words and photos are my own.

I recently came across Nordgreen, who are a Scandinavian brand, creating minimalist watches for both men and women. Their stunning, timeless designs mean there is something to suit everyone.


Adding The Finishing Touches To Our Kitchen/Diner | AD

Disclosure - this post is in collaboration with Desenio. The prints and frames mentioned were gifted for the purpose of this post.

Since we moved into our new home just over 18 months ago, we have slowly worked our way around each room, decorating and adding little touches here and there to make it feel like home.


Playroom Tour

I am so excited to share one of my favourite rooms; the playroom! We decided when we bought this house, that we would like a playroom for the girls to play in and somewhere dedicated for all the toys. So I thought I'd do a little playroom tour, if you wanted a little look around.


Sophie's 7th Birthday Gifts

With Sophie's 7th birthday literally just around the corner, I thought I would share what we've bought for her this year. I personally love reading posts like this for inspiration, as I find children can be super difficult to buy for sometimes!


Amelia's Toddler Bedroom Tour

I've been meaning to write this post for quite a while now, but I kept putting it off, as nothing ever feels quite finished. However, I think I'm happy with how it looks for now, so I thought I'd do a little toddler bedroom tour.


10 Classic Children's Books

Over the years, we have slowly accumulated quite the book collection for our two girls. When we were expecting our youngest daughter, we purchased some classic books to go in her nursery, some of which are her favourites now. So I wanted to share ten of our favourite classic children's books with you.


My Top 5 IKEA Purchases

I think it's a fair assumption that everyone must own at least one piece of IKEA furniture and I personally love how affordable and versatile their items are! We have quite a few IKEA pieces in our home, so I wanted to share my five best buys with you.


10 Ways To Use Zoflora

One of my favourite cleaning products has got to be Zoflora; not only is it a disinfectant which kills bacteria and viruses, but it also smells amazing and is long-lasting! There are so many different fragrances to choose from and it's so inexpensive too. So I thought I would put together a list of ten ways to use Zoflora around the home.


AD | Styling Our Garden For Summer

We moved into our house just over a year ago now, however we spent the rest of the year slowly transforming the garden, which meant we didn't really get to enjoy the warmer months as we would have liked to. However, recently Matalan very kindly gifted us some items to update our garden, ready for the Summer and I'm so excited to show you our newly updated garden space!


My After Lockdown Bucket List

We're now six weeks into lockdown due to the current Corona Virus crisis, so I thought it would be a nice idea to write down a list of some of the things I'm looking forward to doing once we are able to.


My Experience Of Birth Trauma: 2.5 Years On

I think it's fair to say, the aftermath of giving birth to my second daughter was one of the worst experiences of my life. So today, I wanted to share my current thoughts and feelings about my experience of birth trauma, exactly two and a half years on.


My Sunday Photo #24

Happy Easter everyone! I hope your day is filled with lots of chocolate, egg hunts and fun despite the current situation!


50 Indoor Activities For Children

So today I thought I would share some indoor activities, which are great for keeping children entertained during the current situation, as well as on rainy days or school holidays.


Easter Basket 2020

I think it's fair to say Easter is one of my favourite holidays and I look forward to putting our Easter basket together every year. So now that the last few items have arrived, this year's basket is complete! So today I thought I would share what I have included. I hope this post gives you some inspiration if you're also planning on putting one together too.


My Sunday Photo #23

The girls in the garden earlier this week. I have loved seeing them playing together while Sophie's been off school.


Living Room Mood Board

We moved into our new home just over a year ago now and we've been slowly working our way through the house and decorating each room. Although some of them still need a few finishing touches, they're pretty much done!


Valentine's Day Basket 2020

I think you probably know by now how much I love a themed basket, so this year I thought I would put together a little Valentine's Day basket for the girls and I couldn't wait to show you what I've included!


My Sunday Photo #22

We visited York this weekend and it is such a beautiful city. It was lovely to have a look around the popular attractions, especially York Minster - it was just incredible to see!


Goodbye 2019, Hello 2020

I'm sure I say this every year - but where did the last year go? 2019 was a pretty exciting year for us; we bought our first house, got a puppy (which I'm still yet to properly introduce here on the blog!), celebrated the girls' sixth and second birthday's and Toby and I also celebrated our 8 year anniversary in September. That's not including the many adventures we've been on throughout the year too!
