Favourite things from August

Starting the day with a cup of hot water and lemon. This is something that I started to do when I did the 5 day juice plan and I enjoyed it so much I’ve continued with it. I wasn’t sure I liked lemon before that, but…

My Sunday Photo – Morning Smiles

I love mornings these days. My alarm clock is cute and giggly and gives me cuddles. What could be better…

Rain, leaves and Vikings #LittleLoves

 It has been the week of very little sleep here again, little munchkin just doesn’t like sleeping at night. Or in the day. I’ve had the loveliest naps for the past two days after Rob has got home from work and taken him for an hour…

Sticky Mix Vegan Belgian Chocolate Cookie Mix Review

I received the Sticky Mix ‘Free From’ Belgian Chocolate Chip Cookie Mix in my August ‘The Vegan Kind’ subscription box. I absolutely love baking, and I think I’m not too bad at cakes.. but cookies I sometimes have a problem with. I make them…

We’ve been on a trip to Wales this week to visit Frey’s Mamgu and Grandad. Frey has absolutely loved it! He’s been in such a happy mood all week. Sleep has gone a bit out of the window, we have been co-sleeping this…

Choose kindness.. we can make a difference

I often think that I am so lucky that social media wasn’t even a ‘thing’ when I was in school. Bullying and bitchiness between girls was bad enough without cyberbullying to add to the mix. We didn’t have mobile phones or text messages, let…

Babi Pur Lucky Dip Review

I love a lucky dip box, they remind me of fetes when I was small, putting in 20p for a surprise gift. This lucky dip box was quite a bit more than 20p, but I’m so pleased with it. It’s from Babi Pur – which is…
