Ah, potty training! For some of us, its a time that really can send you potty, if you’ll excuse the pun. It was certainly intended. I find that much of parenting can be categorised into ‘laugh or cry’ these days, don’t you? I recently uploaded our latest #6Steps video in collaboration with Huggies Pull Ups, as part of our role as ambassadors for the brand. We’re really excited to be working with them throughout Elsie’s journey, and we hope that our update brings you a little hope and clarity with your own journey.
So as you can tell from the video, our journey so far has been more than a little stop/ start to say the least! With the added glamour of poo on the bedroom floor! If anyone has any bright ideas as far as this goes, then please do let me know! (more…)
Recently I published a review of the beautiful new nursery art that the wonderful From Babies with Love has launched. You can read all about it here. Now I’m bringing you the chance to win a piece of your very own!
Personalised nursery art makes a wonderful gift, and a gorgeous keepsake for your new baby. The print we received is utterly lovely, and I know that when my sister gets her hands on it, it’s going to be such a wonderful addition to my niece’s nursery. You can choose from the rabbit, frog or duck designs and you can have it personalised with baby’s name, birth date and birth weight too. Pop it into a frame and you have a timeless piece of art that will mean so much.
All of mine have had memory boxes since they were little. When my eldest was born over 11 years ago there wasn’t much with her name on it, and not many places offered personalised gifts either. So while her memory box is filled to the brim with all the little bits and bobs that we’ve collected over the years, there really isn’t much that has her name on it. Likewise, her siblings don’t have ‘usual’ names or spellings, so we don’t tend to find that much with their details on either. This is why personalised art is so special. You create it to become whatever you want it to be, so that it’s special for YOU and you alone.
To enter the giveaway to win personalised nursery art courtesy of From Babies with Love, all you need to do is fill in your details in the Rafflecopter form below. The giveaway will end in one week. Good luck!

A couple of years ago I read a novel called Room, by Emma Donoghue. I’ve literally been haunted by it ever since. What a powerful piece of writing. I was grippe from start to end, instantly pulled into the character’s lives and the story has stayed with me a long time afterwards. If you haven’t read it, I urge you to. Especially as the film adaptation is due to hit cinemas on the 15th January 2016. It looks set to be as great a success as the book too, having already been nominated for 3 Golden Globes – Best Film, Best Actress and Best Screenplay! And to celebrate the launch, I have a super prize bundle to giveaway.
We LOVE being part of the Frugi Family and have to say that the Christmas range especially is just so wonderful. Last year we were lucky enough to receive a wonderful stocking stuffed with goodies for all the kids, and this year I’ve got one to give away to you, lucky readers! So, who wants to win a Frugi stocking for Chrismas?
I cannot praise Frugi highly enough when it comes to quality, design and durability. Every single item of clothing we’ve had from them is immaculate still, after many outings and many many washes. And rest assured the Christmas stocking is no different. It’s well made, fun to look at and beautifully designed to fit lots of exciting packages inside! (more…)
