Honest Sleepyhead Grand Review

Sleep is hot topic among us parents, isn’t it? I’m pretty sure every parent has struggled with their child’s sleep at some point. Whether that’s just a difficult sleep regression or some harder, ongoing problems. I remember writing a post all about Darcie’s sleep when she was a baby, she was definitely a ‘below average’ sleeper and that’s putting it nicely! When Ernie was born he slept very well, so well in fact that I became almost quite smug about it. I felt like the universe had put me through my paces with sleep from my first child and now it was giving me a break – a child that slept! He was the total opposite to Darcie, perfectly happy to sleep in his Moses basket away from me and only woke once or twice a night for a feed, right from the word go. For the first four months of his life I would proudly tell anyone who would listen all about my amazing little sleeper, until that is, he stopped. My old friend the four month sleep regression clearly remembered how much fun we had had together the first time and decided to go in again for round two. Ernie was still happy enough to sleep in his own bed but not for any good length of time at all. The night feeds became more and more frequent and he would never wake up happy anymore as he had obviously woken before his body needed to. Slowly but surely I drifted into the life I knew so well of sleepless nights, and snappy, irritated days. (more…)

Girly Gift Guide For Three Year Olds

We recently celebrated Darcie’s third birthday. The fact that I am even having to write that on here shows how long I’ve been neglecting this space for – however, if you follow me on Instagram you would be more than aware of that fact (sorry again blog for the recent neglect). It can be really hard to know what to buy for birthdays, especially these days when the options seem endless. With that in mind I’ve put together a list of products that Darcie is loving at the moment in the hopes that it can be useful for anyone currently in a present buying panic. This was never intended to be a ‘girly’ gift guide however when I rounded it all up a strong unicorn/fairy/pink theme became apparent. (I don’t even know if you’re allowed to say girly these days, but it just seemed like the best way to sum it up. All of these items could be for boys or girls). (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…)

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…)

These are always my favourite gift guides to read as the person I struggle for idea with the most is myself. You know when someone asks you what you want for Christmas and you haven’t got the foggiest because you can’t remember the last time you were encouraged to think about yourself for a change? Yeah, that. I know I’m not the only one to have that problem, so here are some things that I think would be lovely to find underneath the Christmas tree this year. I hope you can find some inspiration here.

Christmas Gift Guide | Men

So here we are, post number three in Little Snippets Gift Guide Week. It’s the tricky one – it’s the men! If gift giving was split into categories X Factor Style, ‘The Men’ would be the category no one wants. That being said, I think I’ve done pretty well with ideas this year so hopefully I can help you by sharing them with you all. We’ve got a few of the classics in here but a couple of more imaginative ideas too. So without further ado, here are my top picks for men this year.
