    Jouellerie review

    If your anything like me you’ll buy yourself a couple of nice pieces of jewellery, wear them for a few weeks and then leave them to rot in a box somewhere! My jewellery was in desperate need of a makeover but I just can not be doing with spending an absolute fortune. You can grab a pair of bright red earrings or a big gold statement necklace from Primark for fairly cheap prices but when it’s your delicate and more meaningful jewellery, you can soon end up breaking the bank. However, I recently got chatting to Jouellerie who have recently undergone a little website makeover – with some absolute gorgeous…

    My Top 5 Twinning is Winning shops

    I was always that person who swore that I would never match with my children. Then BAM I had a daughter and every other insta picture is now us twinning in something (mainly pyjamas because you all know how much I hate to get dressed) and I actually quite like it. Now I can’t promise that Lola will appreciate the twinning outfits when she looks back on her 18th birthday – I say look back but I mean when I get them printed and hung up in the living room ha! I’m not suggesting that I would walk around the town centre in COMPLETE matching outfits, because that’s slightly strange, but I’m…

    5 Chic Additions For Every Modern Home

    When you’re trying to create gorgeous interiors, it can be tough. Sometimes, you really struggle to work out what kind of look you want, or even what’s going to work together to create a fabulous finish. And so you just don’t try, because it seems so impossible. But when you really want to create a relaxing space or somewhere seriously stylish, you’ll want to work in the right additions. Sometimes, trying to focus on the colours that you want or the furniture that will work best can just be too overwhelming. So, instead, work on smaller things that can really bring the space together. Then, you may even realise that you…

    Spooky Snacks for Halloween

    Every year Halloween comes around and I kick myself for not doing a little party. The other half isn’t a massive Halloween fan but I always do the Trick or Treat rounds with Lola and then we come home and wait for others trick or treaters to come to us. I always see such creative decor and party treats for it – I’m obsessed. So I’ve decided to get a few of my ideas together to bring you some Halloween party food inspo! I shopped at my local Aldi because I knew it was the best place to get every day food products at the best price. Also, I know…

    3 Years Old | Lola Poppy

      On July the 5th you turned 3 years old, an age which I could never imagine coming around so quick after I gave birth to you. I looked at other 3 year olds and thought… god it will be absolutely ages until you’re that big, and can talk, and walk and do everything those big kids are doing.  But it wasn’t long, it feels like I’ve blinked and now I have a three year old, a beautiful one at that. You have character like no other, and know exactly what you want. You’re fierce and fiery yet you never speak without pleases and thank yous. I feel so proud…

    4 Things You’ll Probably Forget To Do Before You Give Birth

    It’s easy to forget that there’s actually a lot you need to get sorted before you give birth to your first child. You need to prepare the home, your vehicle and much more. People often forget these jobs because the idea of pushing a person out your uterus is quite a distracting idea, particularly if it’s the first time. Not to worry though, this list will help you make sure that you don’t miss any important details that are commonly overlooked until much, much later. Get The Car Sorted Out If this is your first little one, then you might not yet have a suitable car. If you’re young, you…

    Femme Luxe Finery / Review

    I love an online shop. They just make my life so bloody easy. No getting ready, getting kids ready and dragging us all around town until I find something I like, 10 minutes on my phone I can have an outfit picked out and delivered the next day. However, I sometimes shy away from shops I haven’t used before no matter how amazing their clothes look. How am I supposed to know what the quality is like, how they fit? Femme Luxe Finery recently got in touch and kindly let me choose 4 items from their website to try out – a shop I have never used. I’ve been on…

    Twycross Zoo | Weekend Thrills #5

    If you’re from Leicestershire you’ve definitely heard of Twycross Zoo, and more then likely have been on a school trip there once or twice too. I visited a lot when I was younger and went on several school trips to this zoo, but I was yet to take Lola! Surprisingly as it’s only half an hour away from us. Lola had just turned one when we took her on her last Zoo trip which was to Chester Zoo and to be honest she was just too young to be interested in anything. This time was so much better, she really took an interest to all of the animals (minus the Gibbons…

    Fit for a princess – Roco Clothing

    Don’t you find it hard work looking for occasion wear for young children that hasn’t already been seen on everyone? I searched everywhere I could think of before my wedding for the perfect dress and to be completely honest, I struggled. We were recently very kindly offered to try out an outfit from Roco Clothing, a store I hadn’t yet tried or discovered for that matter. We received the most beautiful dress from the the Paisley of London – Eloquence collection, along with shoes and a flower crown. The presentation was just beautiful, the dress came in it’s own carry bag, the flower crown beautiful packaged in tissue paper and…

    Celebrating Our First Wedding Anniversary

    I know, I can’t believe it – a whole year since we said the big “I do’s”. The year has flown by as I often tell you in my blog posts! But it really has, I remember waiting for the wedding felt like a lifetime, then our honeymoon which came around pretty quick, and now our 1 year anniversary as a married couple! Seeing as it was our first anniversary we wanted to do something special, but I had no clue what. Jack took me out for dinner one night to Miller and Carter near our home and let it out that he had booked a hotel for us in Manchester…
