Saving the world, one Mooncup at a time

Saving the world, one Mooncup at a time

Mooncups are something that I have thought about using several times over the past few years. Several times they’ve been mentioned or I’ve seen them when browsing on the internet. However, I’ve never taken action on it…until now! One of my New Year’s Resolutions this year was to start being more eco-friendly. I’m not doing anything drastic, just making small changes. However, the groundwork for this one started a few months ago! View Post

5 products to help dry hands

5 products to help dry hands

It’s the same story for my hands every winter. They get dry, crack, bleed and sting every time I wash them or use hand cream. This has only got worse since becoming a mother! Now, a new survey has shown that dry skin on hands ages them by an average of 9 years. Some hands were even ‘perceived to be 47 years older than their true age’. Meanwhile, healthy hands were ‘perceived to be younger than their actual age 56% of the time’. View Post

Our first month back to swimming with Puddle Ducks East Kent

Our first month back to swimming with Puddle Ducks East Kent

It’s very nearly the first anniversary of when I first took Autumn for baby swimming lessons with Puddle Ducks East Kent. We were trying out all sorts of different groups and things at the time as I found my confidence. I thought swimming would be a fantastic bonding experience for us both. However, most of all, I thought it would be great for her. There are many health benefits to it. Amongst other things, it helps babies, toddlers and children improve their coordination and it builds their muscles. When she was younger, I also found that it tired Autumn out so much she’d have an absolutely huge nap! So, if you’re desperate for sleep, you might want to give swimming a go!

Someone enjoyed their swimming lesson and is now totally zonked 😂

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: Shaken Udder YogOaty Pouches

Review: Shaken Udder YogOaty Pouches

I’ve been aware of Shaken Udder milkshakes for quite some time. Their cartoon cows and bold packaging make them difficult to miss when I’m in the refrigerated section of the supermarket! Recently, they’ve launched YogOaty pouches. These are tasty pouches you can take out with you for a snack, pop in lunchboxes or have as part of breakfast.

Autumn has been a good little tester as always. As you’ve seen on the blog this week, she loves trying bath time things, but food is her most favourite thing to try! She’s tried out all three flavours over the last few weeks either as a snack or as part of her breakfast. I like how small they are to take out with me to play groups or the library. View Post
