Introducing MWNCI & Co for Monochrome Lovers

MWCI & Co Sweaters
Although we've had a few nice sunny days under our belts we must remain calm and remember that it is still only April and this is England! I always remember to keep a few sweaters and hooded jumpers in the Little Lads wardrobes for those chilly days.

I love the Little Lads in black, firstly because it looks pretty damn cool! And secondly it doesn't show all of the grubbiness of the day, so I'm a bit head over heels about these sweaters MWNCI & Co have sent to us.

A Cheap Family Holiday in Bournemouth with TIPS

Bournemouth family holiday

We just got back from a lovely family holiday in Bournemouth, we have already booked our main holiday for this summer so we wanted a holiday that was cheap and cheerful.

Bournemouth is only an hour and half drive from us and we have been a fair few times before, actually it was the beach I use to visit with my family when I was a kid so it holds fond memories for me.

The beaches are lovely and sandy and in the summer the sea is warm(wish) And even in April the Little Lads were paddling up to their waists, we were really lucky with the weather and it was lovely and sunny for the majority of the time.

An Edinburgh City Break with Children

Over the half term holiday we spent a few days in Edinburgh with the Little Lads, neither myself or The Mister have ever been before and have always wanted to go. We had visions of cosy restaurants, lots of long walks sight seeing and cheeky hot toddys. But who were we  kidding? Beaux complained his legs ached after 10 minutes of walking, Tiger thinks restaurants are so boooooring and while we managed to visit some lovely Scottish pubs a few times, they came with fizzy drinks and crisp snacks as bribery. We soon realised we were going to have to be a little more organised and plan a few proper days out that the little lads would enjoy too.

Muddy Puddles and The Bright Company

If you are a regular reader you will already know about my love for Muddy Puddles, we are an all weather family and Muddy Puddles provide practical cool children's clothing made for playing in whatever the British weather is! While we love the quirky prints and designs Muddy Puddle use on their clothing and footwear, I was super excited about their collaboration with The Bright Company on their Puddle Pac-a Macs.

5 Easy Ways to be Kinder to Yourself when you are A Mum

Mum guilt is a real thing, we worry our children spend too long in front of the TV or on their tablets. We worry we spend too much time looking at our phones. We worry we don't play enough with them. We worry we don't read enough to them. We worry they don't do enough after school activities. If we have more than one child we worry we don't spend enough one on one time with each child. I know this because I personally worry about every single one of these things.

Prestige Flowers Review - Valentine Roses and Thistle Bouquet

Prestige Valentines Roses

Fellas, Valentines Flowers are always a good idea! Never have I ever heard a friend of mine complain they received a beautiful bouquet of roses on Valentines Day, even those who claim to not like flowers! And you don’t even have to set foot outside, get them delivered online, next day! 

Prestige Flowers asked to send me a Luxury Rose and Thistle Bouquet for me to review, I know tough gig but someone has to do it,right?! Obviously I love Roses but Thistles are actually one of my all time favourites and the thorny two compliment each other so much and look absolutely gorgeous in a Valentines bouquet.

Lighthouse Clothing - An All Weather Family

We are an all weather family, living close to the river means we go for family walks come rain or shine. But in all of this time I am yet to own a proper wet weather raincoat! Previously I have just worn faux furs and fashion parka coats and although warm once the rain shows up I end up returning home a bit wet and soggy! So when Lighthouse Clothing contacted me and asked to send me a PROPER raincoat I jumped at the chance.

Happy New Year - A False Start

Happy New Year you gorgeous lot! I hope you all had an amazing Christmas and fabulous start to the New Year. We had such a lovely time, I took a little social media break and have really paid attention to being present and enjoying my family and friends. 

For me it all flew by really quickly and before I knew it everyone was celebrating the start of the new year and are set with their cool diaries and planners full to the brim with their goals and wishes for 2017. After reading several inspirational posts it dawned on me that I haven't set any for myself and to my surprise I actually felt quite content about that. I'm still in a little happy haze and not feeling ready to set myself targets.
