Book Of The Month is where my little ones & I focus on one book each month, read it, watch it (if possible) and do fun activities based on it! This month we've been enjoying one of my little guy's personal favourites (he insists we read it almost every night!) - The Tiger Who Came To Tea!

Gingerbread is the perfect thing to bake with your little ones, or make gifts for loved ones this Christmas. But of course, Gingerbread isn't just for Christmas, it's for anytime!

Cinema Paradiso - DVDs By Mail {Review}

If you're a movie addict like myself, you might have tried out the service LoveFilm in the past? I used to use it all the time when I lived alone, that was before Amazon even bought it. I really loved it. Since LoveFilm closed down last month, a new company has stepped forward in its footsteps - Cinema Paradiso! It's the same sort of concept, you create a wishlist of sorts on their website, of the movies you want to see, and they send them out gradually to you in the post. When you've watched one, you send it back, and they send you another! It's that simple! I decided to try out Cinema Paradiso and I have to say I'm very impressed!

50 Things To Be Grateful For Today

Expressing gratitude, and being thankful is so important in life. Perhaps, the key to happiness. Appreciating the little things, and being grateful for what life has given you.

There are so many things, big things, or everyday things that we should all express our gratitude for. I'm here to help you notice those little things, those everyday things - the things we might take for granted.

Christmas Gift Guide - Children's Stocking Fillers


As parents we always have so many presents to buy for Christmas. Whether you do a stocking for your little ones, spend far too much on big presents or do the sensible 'something to wear, something to do, something you need' option. It still ends up being a lot of items and it can be hard trying to come up with ideas. Stocking fillers can be some of the hardest things to buy, and I used to just buy random things as I saw them! I'm sharing today some different stocking filler ideas for children. {This post contains affiliate links}

There's something so special about receiving a hamper full of goodies at Christmas.

We were recently given the opportunity to review a gorgeous luxury hamper from Prestige Hampers and it's one of my favourite gifts I have ever received! 

Nursery Rhymes Song Activity Basket

It's no secret my little ones love to sing & dance! They are always singing at the top of their lungs to any song - nursery rhymes, adverts, tv theme songs, and they will start dancing to any music whatsoever. They are always 'putting on shows', just like their mother used to do! Haha. So what better way to celebrate their love of singing than to create a fun Nursery Rhyme themed activity, with lots of singing and dancing involved.

Christmas Gift Guide {The Men Who Are Impossible To Buy For}


I always find men the most difficult to buy for, what about you? With women it's often easier, as you can buy things that you might like, or they tend to have more specific likes & interests. My husband and my brother are the two people I struggle to buy for every year! Do you have men in your life who you find impossible to buy for? I've put together a gift guide, with a little something for everyone (hopefully), so here it is - Men Who Are Impossible To Buy For Gift Guide. {this post contains affiliate links}

Oats are one of the best natural products for your skin. They act as a natural exfoliant, they can help tackle oily skin and are really amazing if you have sensitive or eczema prone skin.

I came across 'The Game Of Things' and it sounded like the perfect game for us to play this year.

Updating My Blog with Logojoy!

I absolutely love giving my blog an entire makeover. Switching up the layout, the colours, the fonts and the logo, but it really is a lot of effort, that's why I don't do it very often at all! I'm planning a big blog makeover for the beginning of the new year and taking a few steps to prepare for it now. I know what I like, I know what ideally I'd like my blog to look like, but in all honesty I'm not great at the design aspect of it. I've had other people design my logo for me before, but I wanted something a little different this time around - then I came across Logojoy!

Halloween is over, and Bonfire Night is nearly upon us! It's really the typical bonfire night weather at the moment isn't it? Foggy, grey & really freaking cold.

Maybe you are planning on having a bonfire and roasting a few marshmallows? Whatever it is you are doing, it's important to stay safe, and cosy! I'm sharing some of my Bonfire Night Must Haves today!

Freddie's Flowers {Review}

I absolutely love having beautiful flowers in my home. There's just something so uplifting about filling your home with pretty flowers isn't there. I have always been jealous of family members who can just go out into their garden and pick their own beautiful bouquet. I wish I was one of those people who bought flowers for themselves, (or had flowers bought for them!) on a regular basis! That's why I was so excited when I came across the fantastic company Freddie's Flowers who deliver a gorgeous fresh bunch of flowers, right to your door!
