What new hobby should you take up?

What new hobby should you take up?

Thinking about trying a new hobby? My advice is to just go for it! A lot of people start a new hobby in January thanks to New Year’s Resolutions. However, they often get dropped after a couple of weeks. Cold weather and dark nights don’t exactly help us to stick to things! As the nights are drawing out and there’s less pressure, now is the perfect time to try something new or pick up something that you left off. Hopefully this blog post will help to inspire you!

Valentine’s Day Heart Face Craft with a toddler

Valentine’s Day Heart Face Craft with a toddler

If you’re looking for a last minute Valentine’s Day craft to make with your preschooler, carry on reading! This craft is quick, easy and very versatile. You can make of it what you will, as I’ll go on to demonstrate. Even better, this Valentine’s heart is made from things I just had laying around in the house. I didn’t have to make any special trips to the shop for craft supplies!  View Post

Why I’ve banned my toddler from Masha and the Bear

Why I’ve banned my toddler from Masha and the Bear

Before having a child, I always thought I’d only let my child watch CBeebies, with a limited amount of screen time per week. Whilst she’s not watching TV all the time, my daughter does watch more than the pre-parent me thought she would. I think most of us are the same, it’s a way of helping us to get all the things we need to get done completed. However, are we paying close enough attention to what they watch? One programme she likes, Masha and the Bear, has recently been banned by me as I believe it has been having a negative effect on her. View Post

Review: Dinner at Côte Brasserie, Maidstone

Review: Dinner at Côte Brasserie, Maidstone

On winter nights like these, there’s often nothing I want to do more than sit somewhere cosy and eat some delicious, comforting food. I was recently invited to Côte Brasserie in Maidstone and asked my husband to come with me for a rare child-free evening out (thanks Mum and Dad!) There is something romantic and a little luxurious about French cuisine, perfect for a cold evening. It provided me the opportunity to dress up, although it certainly isn’t a necessity! Fortunately, given the heels I’d chosen, it was only a 5 minute walk from the three nearest car parks. Stepping inside, I was excited to see what Côte Brasserie would be like as I’d never been to any of the restaurants in the chain before. View Post

Why I love Spanish baby and toddler clothes

Why I love Spanish baby and toddler clothes

An item was gifted in return for this blog post.

If you’ve read my blog or looked at my social media, you’ve probably noticed I like to dress my daughter very much like a child. In a modern world where children grow up too fast, I often notice other toddlers or young children dressed like mini adults. It’s fine if that’s your style, but it just isn’t mine, as I feel like there’s plenty of time for that when she’s older. As such, I like that Spanish clothes, from local boutiques or shops such as La Coqueta, offer a traditional look. Not only that, but it is well known that Spanish clothes for children are beautiful and good quality.
