It goes without saying that most women think of motherhood and fashion as being mutually exclusive. Sadly, that just isn’t the case at all! Whether you are carting around a newborn baby or managing a couple of toddlers in tow, there are always ways to keep up with the kids without sacrificing fashion.
Here are some tips on how to be the most fashionable mum in your crowd.
Can you believe the school holidays are nearly over?! Remember back to mid July when the weeks seemed to stretch ahead and now here we find ourselves starting a fighting over a seat in the shoe shop and googling which lunch boxes are heat/water/yogurt proof - which may be how you found this post. Here are my top back to school essentials to ensure a smooth return to term time routine.
It has been a little quiet on the blog lately as we are revamping our kitchen and dining room which turned into a much bigger project than we anticipated but the end is in sight and normal service is resuming soon! Here's a roundup of what we've been watching whilst living in one room surrounded by the contents of our downstairs (at one point I was watching TV through a tub chair).
We all know what a stressful and time-taking activity carpet cleaning is. It is best to use natural products for the purpose that do not cause allergies or skin irritation problems. There are various methods that can be applied for removing stains and in this article, we will reveal you some of them. Check them out!
It may seem like an obvious choice when you need a new car that you simply go out and buy one. You shop around and try to get a good deal. Buying is not always the best option. Sometimes it makes more sense to lease your next vehicle.
The reasons could be financial, as in you may actually spend less money. Lifestyle, personal preferences and practicality also come into play in the decision making process. When you are in the market for a new car then keep an open mind to leasing. We leased our last car and it was a great option for us.
Here are some of the advantages to leasing a car.
Vacuuming has to be one of my most hated household chores. Heavy vacuum cleaners really play up my sciatica and I get so annoyed bashing into furniture. And let's not even discuss having to continually plug and unplug as you move around the house.So it is pretty safe to say I've had my eye on a cordless vacuum cleaner for a while.
Enter the Beldray Cordless Quick Vac Light - a space saving light cordless vacuum which has an RRP of £199 but is currently an absolute bargain at just £55 from your local Wilko store.

I’ve joined in a new monthly interview series called Bloggers Behind the Screens where fellow bloggers come together to answer a series of questions on a specific theme. This is a great way for me to get acquainted with a whole range of bloggers and introduce them to you! This month I am meeting Charlotte from Mama Makes Do.
GANT shirts are where it all began - they're beautifully-tailored and crafted from the finest materials. It's been over 70 years since Bernard Gantmacher made his first shirt - introducing a number of innovative tailoring features, such as the locker loop, the box pleat, and the button on the back of the collar to keep the tie in place. The shirt we know and love today wouldn't be the same without GANT and I'm giving away a shirt if your choice from the SS19 collection.
Another month flies past and I have more TV and movie reviews to share with you including what I thought of the series finale of Line of Duty...
It is now such a commonly held understanding that buying single use plastic bottles is bad that it almost seems like we never thought any other way. Could it really be just 12-24 months ago we were buying bottled water and other drinks without a care, using carrier bags, not moaning at our supermarkets for plastic use? Well, yes it can, things have changed fast and one of the really big areas that was quite an easy change for most people was the humble drinks bottle. Not only did buying a reusable drinks bottle help keep our “Blue Planet” conscience clear it was also a chance to make a statement, to look cool or to have something new to make our own. There are now companies offering branded water bottles for events and businesses, you can buy reusable bottles in supermarkets, on Amazon and in all manner of other places.
We rushed out to buy all manner of water bottles but now the dust has settled a bit, which types were any good? Which ones last, which ones are green and which ones were a bit of a con?
Here is a quick guide to some of the more common types of reusable bottle that we have all had time to reflect on.
