This Girl Can

This Girl Can

There’s a new YouTube video that Boo and I can’t stop watching – This Girl Can is a national campaign developed by Sports England to celebrate active women, whatever their level. We saw it for the first time last week and I was immediately struck at just how true it is. “This Girl Can is […]

Breaking the Cycle of a Habitual Resolver

No New Year Resolution for Mummy and Boo

I’m no stranger to making New Years Resolutions, big or small I always in previous years sat down between Christmas and the new year to decide what I wanted to change, give up, take up – you name it, I’m pretty sure I’ve resolved to do it. However this year is the first where I’ve […]

Sleep In Rollers: A Stylish Mother’s Little Helper

Sleep In Rollers Before and After

We all love a bit of hair envy, especially if we are the ones causing it; but with the trend of big hair here to stay, the pressure is on for salon worthy results at home. I don’t know about you but for me it’s much easier to straighten my hair in a hurry for […]

Grandad, Me… and Teddy Too at the Polka Theatre

Boo with Bella the Bear at Polka Theatre

I love the theatre, Boo loves the theatre – we love going together and living near Wimbledon means we’re fortunate enough to have the Polka Theatre on our doorstep. The Polka Theatre is a world-class theatre for children and we were invited to watch the Grandad, Me… and Teddy Too in the Adventure Theatre; the […]

Aveeno: Ellie and Eddie

Aveeno: Ellie and Eddie

Both Boo and me suffer with seasonal dry skin and are prone to the odd eczema breakout so keeping our skin moisturised is really important. For me it’s always a hard tying to find a good skincare range that strikes the right balance between being kind to your skin and not being too ‘medical’. Aveeno […]

Aladdin: Polka Dot Pantomimes

Aladdin | Polka Dot Patomimes

Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without pantomime and this year I thought Boo was finally old enough to enjoy her first panto. We were invited to watch Aladdin at the Secombe Theatre in Sutton to see what we thought of Polka Dot Pantomime’s production. First of all I feel completely ashamed that despite the Secombe Theatre […]

Pines and Needles: Our First Real Christmas Tree

Our Beautiful Pines and Needles Christmas Tree

So I know it’s a bit late for a blog post about Christmas trees but there’s a good reason, here goes… If I close my eyes and think back to Christmas as a child, one of my first memories is the smell of a real Christmas tree – for me it’s the epitome of a […]

First School Week of 2015: The Little Things

Boo's First Bike Ride January 2015

I’ve often heard parents say how the holidays are never long enough and if I’m honest I didn’t really know what they were on about; working from home means that I crave a quiet house! This week I learnt that they were absolutely right; Boo had an inset day on Monday, the perfect excuse to […]

Braun Thermoscan 7 Launch with Dr Ranj

Braun Thermoscan 7

“Boo’s got a temperature” is something I unfortunately utter quite regularly; however like most people I couldn’t be 100% certain when a high temperature became dangerous. Braun have long been making in ear digital thermometers so as parents we are use to the accuracy that these provide, so when I was invited to the launch […]
