Review: Zhelar Bamboo Towel & Washcloths

Review: Zhelar Bamboo Towel & Washcloths

After Autumn was born, I used normal cotton baby towels on her. They did the job and we had some absolutely beautiful towels gifted to us when she was first born. However, when I first used a bamboo towel on her, I was amazed. The material was softer and much more absorbent.

Recently, we’ve been trying out Zhelar‘s bamboo towels, as well as their washcloths. Read on to see what we thought. View Post

Showcase Cinema de Lux Bluewater open four new cutting-edge screens

Last night, my husband and I had the pleasure of being invited to the official launch of the new extension at Showcase Cinema de Lux Bluewater. This saw four new state-of-the-art screens officially opened. We were really looking forward to it (and not just because it was our first child-free night together in a while!)  View Post

A letter to my daughter at 15 months

A letter to my daughter at 15 months

Dear Autumn,

We had so much festive fun together in your 14th month. You got two more teeth through, which wasn’t so much fun, but we got through those unsettled nights. The upside is you now have two more beautiful teeth to enjoy chomping your food with. The day you turned 14 months old, we were on holiday at Bluestone. As such, I didn’t use a milestone card or sticker. Frustratingly, I keep forgetting to use them. Although, I’m unsure whether they stopped at 12 months. I’ll try to do better next month…although you’d probably just instantly peel a sticker off and present it to me!  View Post

26 years and 26 goals

26 years and 26 goals

Last week, I celebrated my 26th birthday. I can’t believe that this year, my husband and I have been together for a whole decade! I’m also very scared of how close I’m getting to the big three-oh. It feels like time has just flown terrifyingly fast since I left school.

Anyway, it seems like a good time to set some goals for the following year. So, why not do that cliché blogger thing and think of 26 as that’s how many years I’ve been on the planet? View Post

Review: Square Pie Proper Little Pies

Review: Square Pie Proper Little Pies

I said I was giving myself a break this week for my birthday. Come on though, when do I ever give myself a break?! It feels like this week has a square pie sized hole, so I couldn’t resist putting this review up. I was going to write and publish this post just before Christmas. However, I then realised that all anyone cared about at that point was Christmas and these pies do NOT deserve to be ignored by the masses!

You may be familiar with Square Pie, particularly if you’re based in London. Well, they have now brought three flavours of “Proper Little Pies” to a Waitrose freezer near you. I love a good pie with a crispy pastry, so I was keen to put them to the test. View Post
