Autumn loves borrowing my husband‘s bracelet and trying it on. She absolutely delights in putting it on and looking at it. As such, when Molly Brown approached me to review a piece of their beautiful children’s jewellery, I knew a bracelet would be the perfect choice. Just from browsing through the website, you get a good feel of the quality that they deliver. There are gorgeous choices for everyday wear or special events such as christenings or holy communions. I opted for the Her Love Bangle, which allows for the middle three hearts to be personalised with the child’s initials and I couldn’t wait for it to arrive! View Post
Making our back garden more family friendly and suitable for entertaining has been on my to-do list over the last two summers. I was a lot more unable to do things than I realised I’d be when I was pregnant and I didn’t get anywhere last year due in part to SMP. Now that I have a toddler, it feels more important than ever to turn the garden into a place where she can run around and burn some energy. It would also be great to have a space where I can relax, but also feel comfortable inviting family for a BBQ. View Post
Last week was so grey, cloudy and misty, I felt I really couldn’t take it anymore. When the weather is so gloomy, I find that it really affects my mood. When I read in the news that it was the longest London had been without a single hour of sunshine for 8 years, I couldn’t say I was surprised. However, the sun finally made an appearance on Saturday and we grasped the opportunity to make the most 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.
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
