At the end of last year, I was talking to a couple of my best friends about make up. I happened to mention that despite always loving the look of Urban Decay products, I’d never owned any. A couple of weeks later, I received a gorgeous Cath Kidston make up bag, an Urban Decay glitter eyeliner and this Vice Lipstick Palette from her for my birthday. To say I was delighted would be an understatement! I’ve now been using this palette almost daily since January, so I thought I’d write up a little review of it. View Post
Autumn loves her food, but I worry about her eating too many things that aren’t good for her. After all, a lot of convenient on-the-go foods have scary levels of salt and sugar in them, even when they’re marketed at children! Meanwhile, at 18 months old, her taste-buds have become more sensitive to flavours. If my husband provides her with some chocolate buttons, some chunks of pear and blueberries, the fruit will all go straight on the floor! Therefore, it’s important that healthy snacks are presented to her carefully and in a fun way, like Googly Fruit‘s organic products.
Babies can appreciate music even when they’re in the womb. Seeing Autumn enjoy dancing to music is one of my favourite things. In recent months, we’ve made the move onto playing musical instruments together too. This is a brilliant way to help develop their language and listening skills. We’ve been hitting saucepans with wooden spoons and shaking rice in bottles for a while as well as attending various classes. However, Autumn’s first ‘proper’ instrument was a xylophone kindly sent to us to review.
Musical Bumps run music classes for babies, toddlers and beyond around the country. Based on the Hungarian Kodaly method of music teaching, they use a mixture of traditional favourite music, as well as less well known music from around the world. Through play, children can grasp musical skills and basic musical concepts, such as rhythm. We recently visited our local class at Dance Junction in Rochester, Kent. View Post
At the end of last year, I met some lovely ladies from Results With Lucy at the very first South East Bloggers Club meet. I’d been thinking about trying to get fitter, partially inspired by my husband. He started using The Diet Plate and going to the gym a few months ago. He’s lost so much weight and become a lot healthier. When it comes to me and exercise, I need something that’s going to keep me interested. Likewise, it also needs to fit in with my lifestyle.
