The Joys Of Blogging - Sarcasm Inserted Here!

When i started up my blog, i had wanted it to be an online diary - i use to love keeping a written diary when i was younger, and had them throughout the years, up until my teens.

For the past year i have dedicated a lot of time ( and typing ) into my blog, and i am so happy with where i am at now. So much so, 2018 is the year i become self employed with it! Fingers crossed.

If you haven't followed me long, then you will not be familiar with 'the joys of blogging' - it is my catch phrase when i am feeling the strain, the strain on my hands.

Blade & Rose

One thing i love doing is finding unusual clothing pieces for Nila's wardrobe, the quirkier the better to be honest and made by an entrepreneur then i am totally sold!.

I came across a brand called Blade And Rose, which was set up by a lovely lady named Amanda whilst on maternity leave. She had come up with the name by using her childrens middle names which is super cute.The British clothing brand specialise in leggings and clothing accessories.


Christmas 2017 [Unconventional Diary #18]

Merry Christmas Everyone!! :)

I hope you have had a lovely day . Christmas didn’t go as We had hoped . The girls woke up and we had snuggles in bed whilst they opened their present Santa left on their bed . Alessia felt hot and had a slight temperature so we gave her some calpol and she seemed fine . Downstairs we tucked into presents and had lots of happy faces with their gifts - and mine! , I got a canon g7x Mark ii, if you watch our Christmas Vlog you will see I cried my eyes out ! and I am not a pretty crying that’s for sure!.

Winter Wonderland [Unconventional Diary #17]

Last year Winter Wonderland opened up in our local town . It is a huge fun fair park , that is set up every December on an old bus station , that is full of festive cheer - Santa’s grotto, ice skating rink, hot chocolate and marshmallow chocolate fountains - Fair rides and Christmas music playing .


Christmas Lush Haul


Now there is no secret that i am a complete lushaholic, yes i do realise i have probably made that word up, but it is true.I absolutely love Lush. The Christmas range excites me the most and ,although i don't tend to go crazy as I know the lush Boxing Day sale is amazing! , I thought  i would share my my mini haul with you.

This time of year the girls absoulately love baking . The house is filled with homemade mince pies and cinnamon biscuits, definately a tradition of ours .


Travel Essentials In Winter | Keep Safe At Christmas

now I don’t know about you but I love this time of year . The frosty air , the snow ! We have had so much of it , it looks so pretty!. If you have been following us on YouTube then you will know our car took a turn for the worse and just did not want to work.


Making Room For Three Children

If you have been following me for a while then you will know we recently added to our family and have another little bundle of cuteness Baby Nila.

Having three children in a small three bedroom house can be somewhat cramped and unfortunately the bedrooms are just not big enough for the children to share , especially with the amount of toys they have!.


Winter Clothing With JD Williams

I love this time of year, of course, who wouldn't? it is Christmas time! The weather,being cold,not so much a love of mine :) We almost 100% get snow, we have already ,and it is still snowing today! and that is when the winter wardrobe starts to come out.

Christmas Stress [Unconventional Diary #16]

This weekend i am going to get all the girl's presents out and really go through them and see who has what and if any of them need anymore.

When Betty Box reached out and asked if we were interested in receiving one of their subscription boxes, we headed on to their website to check them out .

my lovely friend Laura over at Musings of a tired mummy has tagged me in The Christmas Tag. I am so excited for this tag- really sad I know , but  I love Christmas! :) Okay so there are quite a few questions so let’s get answering.


Salt Dough fun [Unconventional Diary #15]

Over the weekend we had tons of snow! It is really starting to feel christmassy now and i can not wait! I decided to make some salt dough and make an afternoon of it. To be honest, i don't think i have made salt dough for years, since Kadiann was little, so the girls were really excited to get stuck in!


Welcome To Elftopia | Bluestone

On our holiday to Bluestone, we had so much to do. We really didn't have enough time to do everything, which you know means that it is a good holiday - plus that means we have to go back :) 


Finding The Right Guitar Tutor | Bidvine

Alessia has always loved guitars. Even when she was little she would pretend anything was a guitar and act out a performance for us after dinner. She has recently had a few taster lessons at school as well as being taught how to play the ukulele for an assembly for the parents.



Our Magical Week At Bluestone

I had heard so much about Bluestone before going, how it was the perfect family holiday,with so much to do for everyone. I was eager to experience it for myself and take my little family along with me

Christmas is only round the corner and i have put together a round up of some gift ideas that i think would be perfect for that little girl in your life, i know my daughter Alessia would be over the moon to receive any of them! :)


Nila's Weaning Journey #1

I can not believe my little Nila bug is at the stage of weaning , it really doesn’t seem 5 minutes ago since I gave birth to this gorgeous bundle of cuteness! Now here we are - 5 months on and absolutely loving weaning :)

Dribble Bubbs Review

I honestly believe that babies should live in sleepsuit for the first 6 months of their life . They are tiny, fragile little humans and faffing about stessing them in little outfits is a no go for me , give me sleepsuits any day! .

One brand for sleep-suits that I absolutely love is Dribble Bubbs . They have the most cutest and Perfect sleep-suits I have ever seen.Designed with tons of practical features,they actually call them cosy grows and they are super cosy.


Outdoor Play | ESP

Keeping our children healthy and happy is very important to us as parents. Making sure they have a balanced diet and also get enough exercise and fresh air in them little lungs.

I have always encouraged the girls to spend as much time in the garden during the summer months and now, when winter kicks in, we wrap up warm, pack a flask of hot chocolate and head out for a walk along the tracks by our home. There is no excuse :)



Cosy Pyjamas Perfect For Xmas! | Hunkemoller


If there is one thing that is definitely on your list when it comes to Christmas and the winter months then it has got to be some cosy PJ's.

We all love new sleepwear this time of year so when Hunkemellor reached out and asked if Kadiann  wanted to pick out a new pair of pyjamas, she jumped at the chance.


Weekend Fun Online

The weekends are my absolute favourite, no school runs- getting up and fluttering about with baby Nila and the older two girls for school. It is bliss!

I also love that Scott is at home in the evenings,he works until 9.30pm Monday to Friday and by the time he gets home at 10pm  i am shattered and there is no way you are keeping me up for movies or even a chat, i am far away in the land of nod! :)
