But despite some people’s inability to switch off, there are a few things that you can do in order to destress after a long day at work. Here we’re going to take a look into the five best ways to help you unwind after the …

Mum’s the Word’s Mega Mince Pies

Mum’s the Word’s Mega Mince Pies

About 10 years ago, I went to a work Christmas get together where someone had put on a little spread of festive nibbles. One of the things that was on offer was mince pies (obviously!), but these mince pies were a little different. Instead of a fully enclosed pie, the top was nestled on a dollop of brandy butter and it made them taste incredible – like Christmas on steroids!! I decided that I’d try …

Our 5 Favourite Elf on the Shelf Ideas

This year, we haven’t bothered with Elf on the Shelf (my mornings are busy enough with our newly extended school run to be messing about with an elf!) but we’ve really enjoyed seeing all of the other amazing ideas and set-ups that everyone else has been doing this year, so much so that we thought we’d share our five fave Elf on the Shelf ideas, so far! Snow Angel Elf This naughty little chap has …

The Right Way to Scoot!

The Right Way to Scoot!

Our daughters are really alike in some ways but VERY different in others. Where Sausage likes to spend her time crafting, reading and playing Pokemon, Burrito Baby is more of a fan of climbing too high, jumping off of things and making me have a heart attack! When Sausage was little, she had a scooter but it never really held her interest, but BB seems to be getting to an age where a scooter is …

I Just Love It Whisky Gift Set Review

I think it’s fairly safe to say that everyone has someone in their lives who is tricky to buy for. Mine is my Husband. My ‘very good at buying gifts’ Husband, which makes my job so much harder around Christmas and birthdays because you can guarantee that he’s bought something amazingly sentimental and perfect for me (like the Teddy Ruxpin I’d been coveting for 25 years that he bought for my last birthday)! Enter ‘I Just …

How to Unwind After Christmas

How to Unwind After Christmas

I don’t know about you, but I always find the build-up to Christmas pretty stressful. As parents, we all put a ton of pressure on ourselves to make the festive season perfect and by the time Boxing Day rolls around, we’re all well and truly spent (physically, emotionally AN in terms of our finances). This year, Christmas falls on a Friday and Boxing Day a Saturday, which means that we get an extra Bank Holiday day …

Essence of Arcadia Aromatherapy Oils Review

Essence of Arcadia Aromatherapy Oils Review

When it comes to alternative medicines and therapies, I’m something of a skeptic. When I had acupuncture suggested to me whilst pregnant with BB, I couldn’t quite get past my doubts enough to bring myself to do it, however, aromatherapy is one thing that I’m quite open to. I think that smells can have a really powerful effect on moods and feelings, so when the guys at Essence of Arcadia got in touch and asked …

BKD London Baking Kits Review and Discount Code #bkdbakes

If there’s one thing that Sausage and I love to do together, it’s baking. We’re never happier than when we’re in the kitchen, working together to make something tasty for the family, so when the lovely folk at BKD London got in touch and asked if we’d like to try one of their baking kits for kids, we agreed straight away. Even the boxes they come in are gorgeous! The kits contain everything you need …

Are You In the 50%? #oooopsmoments

It’s fairly safe to say (especially if you’ve read THIS post) that my bladder is a bit useless. In fact, I’ve always had a weak bladder, even before having my girls, but after two c-sections it’s worse than ever. That’s why, when I read that 50% of all women suffer some form of bladder weakness, I felt sort of relieved – YAY, I’m not the only one, not even by a long shot! The guys …

How to Rock Your Girls’ Night In

How to Rock Your Girls’ Night In

I don’t know about you, but when the weather starts to cool down, the last thing I feel like doing is getting my glad-rags on and hitting the town. However, my urge to hibernate isn’t exactly great for my social life, which means that a girls’ night in is the best option. There’s nothing nicer than gathering my closest friends together and enjoying ourselves in the comfort of one of our living rooms. However, there’s …
