Cute Teddy Cashmere and Cotton Onesie by Pumpkin Baby

When luxurious baby clothing label Pumpkin Baby offered to send my (still, only just) 18 month old son Alexander a cute babygrow/onesie, I simply couldn't refuse. Taken just before the house move (ignore the door above which needed a repaint)...Alexander was the perfect model for us!

A Trip Down Memory Lane

There's nothing I love more than looking at old photos from my childhood (bar the 10 year old school pictures that is- my eyebrows aka Carpet World samples were let's say, ahead of their time when it came to brow trends, and most of those scary shots have found their way into the bin-eek!

Vlog 4: Pamper Day with an OPI Gel Manicure & Eyebrow Threading

What girl doesn't love a pamper, hey?! In today's vlog, I take you off to my local salon for an OPI gel manicure and some eyebrow threading and dying. No pain, no gain right?!

The Earth to Echo Effect

I mentioned on Facebook recently how mesmerized my son, Oliver, aged 4 1/2 was by the movie of the moment, the modern ET, Earth to Echo. I've never seen a film, any film effect him as much as this one.

Wise Words from a 4 Year Old

Some days I feel like I have a little Buddha in the making on my hands, a four year old son (4 and a 1/2 to be precise) seemingly wise beyond his years offering me kernels of wisdom only innocent children who so often so clearly see life as it is, can.

Summer Days

Isn't summer time simply the best (when they kids aren't making us feel like we're going slowly insane that is)- so far we've had some gorgeous Vitamin D fuelled days in the garden and out and about in glorious Yorkshire to make us happy. Why not get yourself a lovely glass or jug (ha) of Pimms and enjoy some of my favourite photos taken so far this summer-carefree, fun days pf the kids enjoying the rays:

Alexander in Hooded Baby Robe by My 1st Years

I cannot believe Alexander is 16 months already, time sure is flying! I feel like I'm enjoying every second with this little one too. I found first time-motherhood tougher, a foreign world in many ways, a shock to the system (amazing too of course) but I'm a seasoned pro with my second son now!
