Review: The Book Of You

Review: The Book Of You

Part of the reason I started blogging was because I wanted to record Autumn’s childhood. It was apparent even in the very early days that this is a journey that goes by so fast. I can hardly believe I have a two year old already! When I was contacted about The Book Of You, I thought it was such a wonderful way to record your child’s childhood. So many books only cover the baby and toddler years, or at best, up to the end of primary school. View Post

Why are we putting so much pressure on ourselves?

Why are we putting so much pressure on ourselves?

I’m freshly jobless and have been in a somewhat pensive mood over the last few days. In a strange way, having more free time has made me reflect more on the way we use our time and the sheer amount of pressure us mums (and dads) put on ourselves.

The comfy boots you need this autumn and winter!

When I went to Blog On Toys blogging conference in September, Hotter invited me to try a pair of their Whisper boots on at their stand. When I tried these slouchy ankle boots on, I was amazed.

Review: Floof Mr & Mrs Snowman and Builder Set

Review: Floof Mr & Mrs Snowman and Builder Set

Do your children ever want to play with snow, but it’s one of the 361 days of the year that there isn’t snow on the ground? Well, there is a solution! Floof is white like snow, and although it has a different texture, you can have lots of the same kind of fun with it! It’s soft, squashy and moldable, without the melting problem. You can even make snowballs and have snowball fights with it if you want to! I found out about Floof at the Blog On Toys conference last month and over the last couple of weeks Autumn and I have been putting it to the test.
