Boo bejewelled and painted to perfection!

An Afternoon of Fun at Hamleys with Lamaze

When Boo was a baby I was really particular about what toys she had, in fact when I say particular what I mean is that 90% of her toys were Lamaze, so when they invited us to Hamleys this afternoon for a storytelling session with Milkshake presenter Jen Pringle, we were thrilled to get a […]

No New Year Resolution for Mummy and Boo

Breaking the Cycle of a Habitual Resolver

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 Before and After

Sleep In Rollers: A Stylish Mother’s Little Helper

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 […]

Boo with Bella the Bear at Polka Theatre

Grandad, Me… and Teddy Too at the 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 Patomimes

Aladdin: Polka Dot Pantomimes

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 […]

Our Beautiful Pines and Needles Christmas Tree

Pines and Needles: Our First Real 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 […]

Boo's First Bike Ride January 2015

First School Week of 2015: The Little Things

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 […]

Why Champagne of Course!

The lovelies at Orderella invited me along to their #OrderellaXmas meet up last Wednesday evening in Covent Garden. Orderella is a cashless app that let’s users beat the queue in bars and clubs by ordering and paying for drinks on their mobile, and is currently available in over 150 venues nationwide. With the Christmas party […]

Braun Thermoscan 7

Braun Thermoscan 7 Launch with Dr Ranj

“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 […]

MMR: 2 years on and why we changed our mind

It’s been over two years since I blogged about our decision not to give Boo the triple MMR vaccine. As I said at the time it wasn’t a decision that we took lightly and we were also very open to the idea that we could change our mind. A few weeks ago Boo finally had […]
