Top 5 Mums Night Off Essentials

by

Mums night off essentials It’s few and far between but occasionally mums get a night off.  And what do we do with that night off? Hit the town, dance all night, drink every cocktail on the menu and take a taxi home at 6am…nope!! We chill and make the most of a quite house to actually relax for a little while. Now I might not be speaking for all mums but I’m pretty sure I’m speaking for quite a large proportion of mums when I say that. Our lives can be so hectic and busy with our little ones that when we do have a few hours to ourselves (or with our significant others) just switching off is all we really want to do

So if you have a mums night off on the cards and want some fool proof essentials to make your night off perfect here are my top 5 tips. Continue reading

Top 5 Mum Beauty Trends for 2017!

by

beauty trends for 2017Recently the people at Ellisons asked me what I thought would be the big beauty trends for 2017…and I laughed! Now if you’d asked me that 2 years ago (even as someone who wears very little make-up) I would have easily been able to answer you as I’d have read the latest Elle, Vogue and Marie Claire magazine and I will have seen a huge ton of the catwalks from this season. Now I’m a busy mum with an active 7 month old, trying to run a blog and a photography company, I am lucky if I open a magazine let alone get to read one cover to cover like I used to. 

But it did get me thinking about the reality of beauty trends when you are a time strapped mum and I came up with a few things I think will be huge beauty trends with mums for 2017. How many of you mummies can relate! (Please note I mean this as a comic post!)  Continue reading

Top 5 Teething Toys to Keep Your Little One Happy

by

Top Teething Toys Well Elian is at that age where he is starting to show signs of teething. Lots of his little friends already have teeth but my cheeky chap doesn’t seem to be actually cutting any quite yet, but he loves to chew! On everything and anything! This has been going on for well over 2 months now, probably since he was about 4 months old (he’s 7 months now!!) It started with him wanting to chew on everyones finger, not just family but pretty much any human in reachable distance! So to help him with the chewing and teething pain we have collected quite a little collection of teething toys. Some he takes to well, others lay in his toy box unused, here are our top 5 teething toys.

by

Different Christmas Gift IdeasEek I am so excited for Christmas this year, its going to be our first christmas with the little dude, our first christmas as a family. There haven’t been any little children in my side of the family for years and I think children really do add the magic to christmas so I can’t wait. As of today it is only 77 days till christmas day, which means you need to start planning your christmas gifts (if you haven’t started shipping already!)

I am usually pretty organised when it comes to Christmas shopping, although having the little dude means I am a little less organised than usually at the moment but I am planning to get my lists written and shopping sorted over the next few weeks. So here are 5 christmas gift ideas with a difference to help you find the perfect xmas gift for anyone in your family. Continue reading
