August 16, 2016

My little family and I travel a lot, using our car for everything from nursery drop-offs and work meetings to long road trips. With no family living near my husband and I, we’re often on the road ‘doing the rounds’ as we call it, ensuring our children see their grandparents as frequently as possible.  But travelling with two young children is no easy feat! Over the last three years, since …

Review: Car Seat Baby Mirror for Rear-Facing Car Seats

June 17, 2016

With my firstborn son, we used the same rear-facing child carseat that my second born daughter now uses and we chose rear-facing since we had discovered it to be the safest option•.  With my son however, we didn’t have one of those special carseat mirrors where you get to see them, so I recall using my powder compact to awkwardly reach around from the passenger seat, discreetly angling it to see if he …

May 16, 2016

I’m now a mum of two but before my daughter arrived, my husband and I thought long and hard about whether we could / should have another child.

Baby Girl’s Nursery Inspo

May 6, 2016

I decorated my little girls nursery while I was pregnant and wanted originality, personality and detail to be key. When creating a personal space and making a house a home, it’s the little things that really matter and will be both pleasing to the eye and pleasant for your little one to be amongst. When they’re first born, it’s hard to say what personality they have or will develop, so …

Review: The New Wuti Wrap™ by We Made Me Ltd

May 1, 2016

With my firstborn, I didn’t really ‘do’ slings, wraps or carriers. No reason other than I just never thought to nor did I know much about them.
