HEARTY WINTER BEEF STEW

This time of year I love my slow cooker . I use it all year round but it definitely comes out a lot in winter. One thing I love to do is my hearty winters beef stew .


WIN A DESIGN A FRIEND PRINCESS CHARLOTTE DOLL FOR CHRISTMAS

OUR WEEK IN MALGRAT DE MAR SPAIN

We are back from our week in Spain and it’s good to be home . Even in a warm country - I still can’t wait to get home to my bed , is it just me ?


HALLOWEEN AT EUROPA SPLASH HOTEL IN SPAIN

The girls and I absolutely love celebrating Halloween, Samhain. It’s one of our favourite holidays we have and we go all out every year .


A DAY IN THE LIFE ON HOLIDAY - SPAIN

I thought I’d do a day in the life on holiday whilst we are in Spain for the week. I normally vlog our adventures for YouTube but a day in the life in photos is something different isn’t it :)


EXPERIMENTING WITH PEPPER MINT: THE MAGNIFICENT MARS EXPEDITION

Alessia loves anything creative . Whether it’s slime or experiment sets - she absolutely loves getting involved and making all sorts of different creations.


THE ADDAMS FAMILY & SPOOKY KRISPY KREMES

Since seeing the new Addam’s family film advertised , we’ve been so eager to watch it as we all love the original movies and I knew this one would be a hit! - especially with Nila.


PUMPKIN CARVING 2019

One of our favourite things to do for Halloween is pumpkin carving . We absolutely love it . You can’t beat a movie night with the lights off and your pumpkins glowing with tea lights in , it’s the best!.


HALLOWEEN SLIME

Now if you’ve been around here for a while then you’ll know that Alessia is crazy obsessed with slime . From buying it to making it - she absolutely loves the stuff!



PUMPKIN PATCH | WHEELOCK FARM 2019

One thing I wanted to do last year was take the girls to a pumpkin patch. We’ve never been before and we absolutely love halloween and thought it would be great to pick our own pumpkins and obviously support the farmers by doing so.


PIRATA & CAPITANO PLUSH FRIENDS FROM POSH PAWS | REVIEW

School mornings always starts with milkshake on channel five. It started with finding the show the little princess one morning, does anyone remember that cartoon?, anyway since then it has been our go to every morning :)


BANK ATTACK GAME REVIEW

We’ve been busy this weekend testing out the new game we’ve been kindly sent - Bank attack!. The girls love a good board game and this one is completely different to the ones we’ve tested out before .


LIVING ROOM MAKE OVER IN TIME FOR CHRISTMAS

One thing I do love about this house is the living room. It Isn’t the biggest but it’s the warmest room in the house , which is definitely a first .


THREE DAY STONE AGE CAMPING TRIP WITH SCHOOL

Alessia has been on a camping trip with the school for the three days .Their topic this term is Stone Age and the trip was for them to learn a bit more about the stone  age and recreate some of the things they had to do .


OUR FAMILY BUCKET LIST FOR FLORIDA

Now Nila is a little bit older , we have been planning out more trips around the world.The thought of taking her abroad whilst she was a baby just worried me so we said we would wait until she was older.


DOUGH NAB - THE GAME | REVIEW

When it comes to board games you know we love trying out new ones - especially ones that are a little bit different as let’s be honest , some can get a little same old can’t they !


SHOPPING WITH THE GIRLIES

How are we in October already!, Autumn already and doesn’t it feel like it . We’ve already put the heating on and the candles have made an appearance too.


LEARN WITH PEPPA | TRENDS UK REVIEW

It’s no secret that we are big fans of peppa Pig in this house . Alessia used to absolutely love Peppa when she was younger and Nila has definitely followed in her footsteps :)

Trends UK have sent us some electronic learning toys that are essentially designed to help to educate toddlers and pre schoolers in a fun way - and the best part about it is they have a range of different characters including good old peppa pig :)


AUTUMN SLOW COOKER BUTTERNUT SQUASH SOUP

When it comes to this time of year I absolutely love all the comforting dishes for dinner time . Stews and homemade soups with crusty bread - yum!.


AUTUMN LEAVES PAINTING

While we were out the other day , Nila and I collected up some of the fallen leaves for some crafting. We seem to have a routine of doing some sort of craft activity in the morning after breakfast.


I quite enjoy it actually and also gives me a chance to drink my coffee reasonably warm too :)

We’ve opted for some painting today- if Nila has her way then it’s painting and glue. She loves glue - especially at playgroup!


I thought we could try some leaf painting as the older two absolutely loved doing this when they were younger and I think it’s great for their concentration skills.

I used two paper plates and popped some autumn colours on each of them, and let Nila take the lead. She was trying to copy me , which was really cute , so I showed her how to paint the leaves and then stick them to the paper to make a stamper.




She loved it and kept saying ‘wow’ :) . We had the trolls soundtrack on and we both had a cup of tea and spent well over an hour making some gorgeous Autimnal creations.

We spoke about the different colours of the leaves and the texture , how they were crunchy and made a noise.



Nila ended up using the paint as glue and stuck some of the leaves onto her masterpiece and was so proud of it .

I think next time we go out I’ll be on the hunt for some conkers- I wonder what we could make with them :)



LOVING YOUR POSTPARTUM BODY AFTER PREGNANCY

Someone once said to me when I was pregnant with my first daughter Kadiann, that my
body would ‘never be the same again’ , and honestly that worried me .


ZURU BUNCH O BALLOONS PARTY | REVIEW

When it comes to kids - who doesn’t love throwing a birthday party! We love them and the girls love helping getting the house ready for them.


HOW TO PLAN THE PERFECT CHRISTMAS ON A BUDGET



Christmas is one of the best periods of the year, when you can spend valuable time with friends and family and treat yourself to some wonderful food and drink. One of the downsides is it can cost a lot of money to organise, so it pays to save cashwherever you can.


BLOGONTOYS - THE BEST CONFERENCE AROUND

So if you’ve followed me for a while then you will of heard me mention , and probably  preached , about blogon which is a blogging conference usually held in Manchester in May and September .

Being a parent is one of the most challenging roles that you can take on. Your kids look to you to help them learn how to grow up and be strong, responsible people. While it is a lot of fun to spend time with your kids, you may also worry about whether or not you are doing enough to guide them through life. You may also get caught up feeling guilty about those moments when you aren’t at your best. The truth is that no parent is perfect, but you can use these tips to be the best parent possible for your children.


SO SLIME D.I.Y SLIMELICIOUS STATION | REVIEW

It's no secret that my girls are obsessed with Slime . If you have been around for a while then you will know slime making happens every week without fail.


TURKEY MEATBALLS & HOMEMADE SAUCE

Having three children , I love nothing more than to make a meal that they all eat. I’m not into making three separate meals - we don’t have time for that here :)


FINALLY VENTURING OUT OF THE HOUSE

I can not tell you how much cabin fever had taken over since surgery. If you are new around here then I had hernia surgery 2 weeks ago and honestly , it has been horrendous.


HERNIA REPAIR - 2 WEEKS POST SURGERY

It has been 2 weeks since I had surgery. If you are new around here then I had Hernia repair surgery a fortnight ago, which I had actually been waiting for , for well over a year.


SEVEN REASONS TO CHOOSE FRANCE AS YOUR NEXT FAMILY DESTINATION

France garners more visitors per year than any other country in the world, leaving nations like America and United Kingdom trundling at the back. Part of this appeal lies in the mild and warmth of the summers which attract waves of tourists simply seeking to soak in the sun. 



BUG HUNTING

both the eldest girls always loved bugs when they were little . Kadiann even ate a snail once! I know , I know!, but they were never scared of creepy crawlers at all.

Over the last few months Nila has been frightened by every black little dot she sees!. Honestly , she points at every thing and says it’s a spider , I don’t know if it’s a faze she is going through but it really does upset her .


BACK TO SCHOOL AND PLAYGROUP WITH TRUNKI

First week back for the girls at playgroup and school and they are so glad to be back!. I think Nila has missed her little friends over the summer and Alessia couldn’t wait to go into year 6!.


MY LOVE FOR BABYWEARING

I had always said once Nila was here I wanted to try all the things I hadn’t with the older two girls as she was going to be our last baby. Now babywearing was something I hadn’t really
bothered with before , we did in fact buy a carrier with Alessia - but I never used it !


HOTTER SHOES | THE SANDALS OF DREAMS

One thing about me is I love sandals . I have so many pairs of them and I live in them all summer! . If we are going to be honest , I probably where them most of the year unless it’s raining or snowing .



MY TIPS AND TRICKS FOR BARGAIN SHOPPING FOR THE GIRLS

When it comes to kids we all know how expensive they can be - especially if you have more than one!. It seems never ending doesn’t it - school uniforms , birthdays , Easter. I am sure every month of the year there is something that needs to be bought for !.


OUR SUMMER HOLIDAY IN PRESTATYN

We are back home now from our summer holiday and we had the best time!. The weather was on our side for most of the week and we  enjoyed every minute of it - swimming, arcades, the beach/ we really made the most of it and I managed to capture most of it on camera :)



NO MORE BABIES

I’m writing this on my phone whilst laying with my little Nila bug. How are you 2 already. No more baby, a fully fledged toddler with so much sass, and the cutest little comedian you ever did see!.


BACK TO SCHOOL PREPPING ESSENTIALS

I am sure I am not the only one that thinks these summer holidays have gone way to fast!, to fast for my liking!. The new school year is just around the corner and I’ve been getting my prep on to make life a little easier.


PRESTATYN BEACH

One place the girls and I absolutely love is the beach. Doesn’t matter where or how sandy it is , just being by the sea is one of our happy places .


BAKING MADE EASY WITH TRAGO

When it comes to being in the kitchen , I think everyone knows I love to bake . The girls and Scott are always looking around for something to eat - rocky road , homemade Banana bread, you name it , we have made it .


A MORNING OF CRAFTS & ARCADES AT RHYL

We’ve had a busy day and it’s been absolutely lovely . We decided we were going to head into Rhyl today and spend the afternoon there in the arcades after our Arts & Crafts morning at the club.


BATH FUN WITH JOHNSONS

All three of the girls have loved bath time. From newborn they have all been water babies and honestly it can be a struggle sometimes getting them out ! :)


SLOW DAYS

Sometimes we are so worried about having the ‘perfect’ day and spending a fortune on the best day out that we seem to look pass the simple small things that can make one of the best days.


NILA AT 2

And we a blink of an eye Nila is already 2. The years seem to go so quick don’t they?, I’m sure they go even quicker after you’ve had one or two children. I am sure of it!. 2 years and 2 months has absolutely flown by.
