However that being said, nothing prepares you for the life changing experience of being a first time parent, life literally gets turned upside down. You are at your most vulnerable. (more…)

With the average parent spending £10,000 a year on childcare according to the baby cost calculator and the average household income bringing in £30,000 per year, it’s a wonder how many people manage. I have rounded up a few small but helpful tips and advice that will help you make some big savings. (more…)

Weight Loss, New Purchases & A Week of Emotions ~ Little Loves

Good morning, TGIF right! I for one am glad this week has come to an end. I spent the last two days on the road doing a 4 hour trip there and back travelling with Harry to see two separate friends who had both received sad news this week, news that makes me appreciate what I have, and they are friends that are worth travelling the distance for and more. I ask that you keep them both in your prayers if you are the praying type!

This was how Harry felt after a 4 hour round trip!

*REVIEW & GIVEAWAY* 360 Junior Beaker

Like many other parents we have gone through our fair share of plastic cups/beakers in the last 12 months or so. Some are just useless, some leak, some are impossible to suck out of and a lot of them get lost.

For me the perfect beaker is one that is easy for Amelia to drink her water from, doesn’t leak and can be used in the car without spilling if thrown onto the ground. Not much to ask for, but very few toddler/training cups do all of the above. (more…)
