Children can inspire you to try your hardest, and enjoy life in the best way possible.
Live Every Day To The Fullest
Tomorrow is a new day, a new opportunity to have fun and enjoy yourself!
Children do not hold grudges.
Take Risks & Be Brave
Children can be totally fearless. They do things because they want to and enjoy themselves.
Apologise To Others
You teach your children to say sorry, but do YOU apologise to others?
Accept Others For Who They Are
No one is perfect, children accept you for who you are, not who you aren't.
They don't care if you can't cook, aren't wearing make up or weigh more than you'd like.
Never stop. There's always something new to understand, explore, figure out.
Express Your Inner Child And Be Silly
You do silly things, sing songs, dance like a crazy person to make them laugh.
Live In The Moment
Slow down, take note of what's going on around you.
Ask For Help
As adults, most of us tend to be too stubborn to ask for help,
Appreciate The Little Things
Stop, look around. Appreciate all the good things you have in your life.
Don't just let everything pass you by.
If At First You Don't Succeed..
Try and try again. If you're determined, you can do it.
I recently had to opportunity to review a personalised stamp & ink pad from Stamptastic.
Is it ridiculous how excited I was to receive a stamp?
Stamptastic is a 'new fast way of naming all your belongings!'
They create personalised stamps which are usable on a variety of materials, such as fabric, wood and metal.
Now you can just stamp everything!
Ahh it's so fun :) Look how awesome it is!
These stamps are made for stamping your little ones names onto their uniform, shoes, bags everything!
It's just so easy and saves so much sewing time.
Seeing as I didn't need a stamp for my little ones,
I got a stamp with my blog name on it! I love it.
I've been stamping on handwritten letters, cards, notebooks!
Going a bit crazy, but I love my stamp!
Stamptastic are also giving you lovely people the chance the win your own stamp set!
Dummy, Handheld Reins, Sunglasses, Zipped Pouch, Hairbrush, Inhalers, Gloves, Tissues, Chewing Gum, Lip Balm, Hand Cream, Rubbish!
Step Two: Chuck all the rubbish away.
I swear the rubbish from my bag is 50% chocolate bar wrappers,
and 50% post it notes to myself. Haha.
Step Three: Sort out what actually needs to be in your bag.
Aside from the rubbish, I don't need the gloves in my bag any more. It's not that cold.
I probably don't need two inhalers, the dummy and reins can go in the changing bag.
I also don't want to just keep my sunglasses in my bag like that,
that's how they always get broken!
Step Four: Put the necessary items back in your bag in a tidy way.
Use the different pockets in your bag, or buy a bag organiser!
Keep different things in different places, and use zipped pouches to keep small items in.
Spring Clean Your Purse!
Loose change, random business cards, old lottery ticket, phone SD card and spare battery,
gift cards, loyalty cards, bank cards etc, receipts, other cards.
Purses are often another place I just store things.
I like to keep old receipts, small random items, and lots of loose change!
Step One: Empty out your purse, every single pocket.
I'm sure you'll find something you didn't know was there!
Step Two: Chuck away rubbish, especially super old receipts!
Do you need that receipt for your dinner 3 weeks ago?
You've already eaten it, so there's no chance you're going to return it!
Step Three: Take away loose change.
I have a small money box where I store all my loose change.
I hate change.
Maybe use a seperate coin purse or store your change in a money box too!
Step Four: Sort your cards
Do you need this card any more?
Has it expired?
Is it a gift card? If so, is there any money left on it?
Step Five: Store small items in a zipped pouch somewhere else in your bag. (see above)
Step Six: Put all good items back in your purse
Do it in an organised way, least used cards at the back, most used cards at the front!
Do you have a super disorganised,
full of rubbish,
bag & purse?
Will you be using any of these tips?
You could also 'spring clean' other bags, such as changing bags, or even coat pockets!
(Oh look, more chocolate wrappers!)
