When it comes to re-decorating many people choose to do it themselves. Painting and decorating is a doddle right?

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 […]

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 […]

Be Beautiful Cheam Village Salon

Be Beautiful Cheam Village Launch Party

The lovely Bonnie and Emma at Be Beautiful launched their second salon in nearby Cheam Village recently and I popped along to the opening party. Be Beautiful is already such an established beauty salon nestled in Surrey, although don’t let the suburban surroundings deceive you – they’re list of treatments on offer is really comprehensive […]

Zip Line on-board the Oasis of the Seas

Oasis of the Seas: Royal Caribbean Cruises

I’ve never been on a cruise and up until this week I was pretty sure they weren’t the type of holiday me and Boo would enjoy, however on Wednesday I along with a handful of other bloggers were invited aboard the Oasis of the Seas by Royal Caribbean to see what a cruise had to […]
