Stuff on a Sunday – Feeling Festive & Panto!

We’ve been properly getting into the swing of Christmassy this week! We put up our tree, made mince tarts, went to a panto and did some Christmas crafts! Aren’t these little Christmas trees cute? They’re so easy to make too! Vision Direct have made a downloadable template and you just need to cut out two tree shapes per tree and get decorating! I cut round my tree shapes, placed them on my cardboard box and then cut them out, for each pair of trees I cut a slit in the top…

The Christmas Tag Vlog (Mr & Mrs Style)

Sam and I filmed the Mr & Mrs Tag yesterday, we were feeling a bit festive after picking out our tree at the garden centre! After leaving it in a bucket of water overnight we’ll be fluffing it up and decorating it today, after seeing Athena in her nativity play this afternoon! It’s beginning to feel a lot like Christmas… So here’s us answering some Christmassy questions… and if you fancy joining in the questions are in the video description!

Style: Classic Daniel Wellington Watch

In a bid to spend less time with my phone I’ve started wearing a watch! I was finding every time I glanced at my phone a notification caught my eye and then I looked at that, and forgot to check the time! Then the process would repeat itself and I’d never actually remember the time, and waste half the time staring at a screen! My new watch is a Daniel Wellington Watch from Plus Watches, they have a huge selection of designer watches and it was pretty tricky to choose! In the…

Our favourite Christmas Kids Books (Giveaway)

Christmas is a lovely time of year for reading, it’s cold so snuggling on the sofa under the blanket is something we do a lot of! Our Christmas book collection is growing year on year, and it’s now big enough to fill up the kids little book shelf in the corner of the living room! I’ve picked five current favourites and wanted to share why we love them… Willa and the Bear – Willa is a little girl who has lost her beloved ragdoll, but she looses it on a…

Interiors: Refresh Your Home For 2018

December is finally here, and it’s time to start planning for and enjoying the festive season. Decorating the house for Christmas can be one of the most fun tasks of the month- from putting up the tree in the living room to wrapping tinsel around the stairs: it’s something which allows us to really let those creative juices flow. Image credit As the end of the year is approaching, many of us may be starting to look at things we want to do to the home in the new year.…

Sunday Scrapbook – Mice at the Theatre

Another week of this year has shot by, this one on a blur of feeling dreadful and sleeping pretty much! We had a lovely day at Marwell last Saturday (here’s a video) but last Sunday I woke up feeling a bit rough and ended it with a fever in bed by 6pm. I’d fallen asleep with the kids for an afternoon nap and when I woke up I was practically delirious, boiling hot one moment then sweating and shivering the next. Turns out it was tonsillitis and I managed to…

Ickle Bubba Solar Car Seat Review

Ickle Bubba is a brand I’m not familiar with so far, so when we were asked if we wanted to test out the Ickle Bubba Solar car seat we agreed! It’s a Group 1-2-3 seat, which makes it suitable from 9 months to around 12 years – height dependant – they need to reach 135cms. It can attach with an Isofix fitting or a three point seatbelt and is a forward facing only seat with a recline feature. Arlo is just under 15kg so is a group 1 still but no…

What the kids wore: Lamb & Bear

Athena wears her uniform (or PJ’s!) five full days a week. She’s like me and is a fan of comfort so as soon as she arrives home she heads off to take her ‘unicorn’ off and gets into PJs. This means that her time in her own clothes is restricted to the weekends and holidays, which makes washing easier for me but means I have a lot less fun outfits to share these days! But last weekend Athena picked her own outfit to wear to a soft play party and…

Be My Bear – Bear Making Kit & Giveaway!

Last week we had a delivery from Be My Bear, and online store who stock a large variety of different bears that can be made at home. The kids had looked on the website to find a bear that they wanted to have as their very own and a few days later a kit arrived containing the bear carcass (for want of a better word!) some stuffing an outfit and a few other bits and bobs to make the bears truly their own. Arlo spotted the Lion and decided that was the…

Me & Mine – November 2017

Our family photos were taken a couple of weeks ago after a very muddy walk around Swanbourne Lake in Arundel. As you can see there were more than a few muddy knees but we all had fun! This month has shot past, and the countdown to Christmas is really on I guess! This month I have been to London three times, twice for blogging/vlogging conferences and once with the whole family for Winter Wonderland. We also had a lovely day out last weekend at Marwell for their Christmas at Marwell…

Days Out: Christmas at Marwell 2017

Last weekend we were invited to Marwell zoo too experience Christmas at Marwell and it was the perfect way to continue our Christmas festivities after visiting Winter Wonderland the previous weekend. We took Athena, Arlo and Jessica and they were all so excited to be meeting Father Christmas in his grotto, not to mention the presents they were given! But before they got to meet the man in red there was lots more to explore! The Christmas at Marwell tickets give you full access to the park, so we arrived before…

Review: Trespass DLX Munros Winter Jacket

It’s blimming cold now, there’s no denying it. My attempts to venture out in just a thick jumper and scarf are leaving me miserable and shivering and winter is definitely here! But I’ve got a new coat to keep me toasty from Trespass, and I am wondering why I’ve never thought about having a longer length coat in recent years – it really makes a difference! I’m not a huge fan of jeans so mostly wear leggings or tights which means my legs get a bit chilly so an extra…
