Escape To Cornwall | The Esplanade Hotel Review

One of my big dilemmas for this year was where to go on holiday. Where did we want to go? How long could Dan take off from work? When would be the best time of year? We debated the pros and cons of various ideas for a while before deciding that what we would actually much prefer is to take lots of mini breaks throughout the year. That way we wouldn’t have the pressure of one big holiday and we could do more things and see more places. It was pretty much perfect timing when The Esplanade Hotel invited us to stay with them for a few nights and so we happily set of for Cornwall, excited for our weekend away. Hopefully the first of many this year! (more…)

Valentines Gift Guide

It’s that time of year again. V-Day is upon us once more, and bringing with it the old age question of what to buy for your loved one. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a problem I know I am lucky to have, but still, it can be so hard to think of new ideas each year!

I’ve been on the hunt for some lovely gift ideas and I think I’ve found some gems, so hopefully there will be something within this post to inspire you too. And you still have plenty of time to order a present or to go hunting in the shops! I’ve also decided to run a Valentines giveaway as a gift from me to you all, so stay tuned until the end of the post for more details. (more…)

Getting Productive | Acer Chromebook Review

I’ve been talking a lot about goals over the past few weeks. With the New Year upon us, we are all thinking of ways to better ourselves over the coming year. One of my major underlying goals is just to be more productive, to work smarter as well as harder and to basically just get more done in the day. That’s easier said that done for most of us, but throw two children under two and a half into the mix and it can seem next to impossible to imagine that ever becoming a reality. But being a busy mum is also what drives me and motivates me to achieve more and better myself. So that is what I have been trying to do! I strongly believe in not waiting for the New Year to action my goals and so with that in mind I have been finding ways to be more productive throughout the day. (more…)

Humbug! The Hedgehog Who Couldn’t Sleep | Theatre Review

For as long as I can remember, the theatre has always been a huge part of my life. I’m a massive advocate for how beneficial being involved with the theatre can be for people of all ages and so it’s something I’m definitely keen to encourage for my both my children. Whether they grow up simply enjoying visiting the theatre and watching performances or whether they become more involved and on the stage themselves, I really hope it is a part of their lives the way it has been of mine. With that in mind, you can imagine how delighted I was when we were invited along to The NST City Studio to see their opening performance of Humbug! The Hedgehog Who Couldn’t Sleep. The production is aimed at 2-5 year olds but all the family is welcome so we all went along together, bringing Ernie (5 months old) along too. (more…)

Babystyle Hybrid Tandem | Review

Oh the wonderful world of prams. Choosing a pram can be an absolute minefield, can’t it? It’s hard enough picking a pram for your first baby, but then baby number two comes along, bringing with them a whole new load of pushchair related confusion. I’d originally hoped that we would be able to get by without a double pram but with Darcie still regularly napping during the day time, it quickly became clear that a double pram was exactly what we needed. One of my main dilemmas was whether or not we should get a double (side by side) or tandem (one up, one down). After purchasing a side by side, I was also then sent the Babystyle Hybrid Tandem to try out for the purposes of this review. So I’m pleased to say I can now give you my informed opinions on the whole double pram conundrum and all of my thoughts on the Babystyle Hybrid Tandem. (more…)
