AD New Wardrobe Pieces From Femme Luxe

Friday, March 15, 2019

I always know how well my day is going to go according to the clothes I decide to wear. If I pop on my comfy jogging bottoms, it is safe to say I have a day of sitting around writing ahead of me. If I have opted for some nice clothes and a touch of make-up then I am ready to tackle the day and be productive! 

I love buying new clothes and finding different ways to style them so when Femme Luxe got in touch offering me a few items to try, I jumped at the chance. Femme Luxe sell a large range of both dressy and casual clothes. There is something for every occasion. They are a really reasonable price and have a fast delivery service. 


|AD| Mother's Day Gift Guide

Wednesday, March 13, 2019

Mother's Day is coming up on 31st March 2019 here in the UK. I always love Mother's Day, the kids always go all out, making me handmade cards and letters and I get to spend the whole day with my favourite people. It is also a lovely day to show appreciation to the mother's or mother figures in your life. I have been working with a few different brands to put together a gift guide full of thoughtful gifts for your loved ones. I hope it gives you inspiration to spoil them. 


This beautiful hummingbird necklace from Jana Reinhardt symbolises enjoying life and lightness of being. It was handmade in the UK by a small team of goldsmiths and the hummingbird is hand carved. It is a lovely quality piece of jewellery and the perfect gift for any Mum this Mother's Day. It is certainly something they can treasure forever. Prices start from £85 for Sterling Silver but you can also purchase in a range of different colours and metals. The Hummingbird necklace is available to buy from www.janareinhardt.com

Half-Term Holidays #ad

Saturday, March 02, 2019


We have just finished February half-term and what a glorious week it was, well the tail end at least. The weather has been amazing and we managed to get a sneak peek of what Summer will hopefully be like once it arrives! We managed to have a couple of family days out at the start of the holiday, whilst Sam was at home,including National Trust Calke Abbey and Warwick Castle then the kids spent the rest of the week playing outdoors! Just before Christmas we put up the children's enormous trampoline which was an early present from their grandparents and it was the first chance they had gotten to really enjoy it.

Review: Wild Cakes

Thursday, February 28, 2019

It has been a while since we last did a toy review but we had been eagerly awaiting the release of Wild Cakes since I got to see them at Blog On last September. Now they are finally here and we got our hands on them to review. You may have seen Sweet Pups which were released last year, if not you can read our review here. Basically, the toys look simply like yummy sweet treats from afar but have a little surprise. Each one can be turned inside out to reveal a cute creature. Also they are cake scented! They smell exactly like the cake would in real life. They really do smell amazing.

National Trust Calke Abbey

Wednesday, February 20, 2019


When my Dad asked what we all wanted for Christmas last year, I asked for a National Trust family membership. It was a low priced gift that we could all enjoy throughout the year. I have visited many National Trust sites over the years and have been a card holder before, back when Elsie was a baby. At that time we visited places in the West Midlands/ Warwickshire and whenever going away for a holiday we would try and visit any local sites. Since moving to Derbyshire last year, we haven't managed to explore many local attractions but there are so many National Trust properties nearby. 

Review: Half-Term at Warwick Castle

Tuesday, February 19, 2019


Yesterday we were invited to visit Warwick Castle to enjoy a day out over half-term. It was our first official day of half-term and we surprised the children, they had no idea where we were going. Over the years Warwick Castle has become a family favourite. We have been so many times and it never gets boring. They are always adding new attractions and shows which makes it a really fun way for the kids to learn about history. 

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) My First Session

Wednesday, February 06, 2019


I have just completed my first Cognitive Behavioural Therapy Session with the Talking Mental Health Derbyshire Team. I am so thankful for the mental health resources in my area. With the house move and leaving my friends behind, having so much stress renovating the house and simply feeling so alone at times, it has really taken it's toll on me.
