Veganism, sustainability… it’s all a big learning curve for my family and I, but we’re trying our best. If you caught my earlier post on sustainable living, I talked about how switching to Ecotricity could make a massive impact to the planet with such little effort from you, today I want to talk about another… Read More Cleaning Cupboard Staples – sustainable, vegan friendly essentials.
Where has the summer gone?! A few weeks ago we were cavorting about in dresses and sunglasses which lasted until the weekend just gone and now it’s back to wellies and raincoats. Luckily we did manage to enjoy the sunshine while it was here with a few National Trust visits, but this week has mostly… Read More Rain, rain, go away… #LittleLoves
I mentioned before our horrific bout of hand, foot and mouth didn’t I, well the weekend we realised what it was, was also the weekend we had tickets to go and see Disney on Ice 100 years of Magic! Typical right. We were so excited to take Isabelle to see it, she is a massive… Read More A Disney on Ice Review, Kind of.
We decided (I decided, my husband disagreed with me setting up yet another direct debit) to get National Trust Family Passes last month. My friend has recently got them with her family and I thought it might motivate me to get out and about a bit more if we had passes and ideas for places… Read More Getting National Trust Family Passes
Last week, Isabelle and I drove to Warwick Castle and stayed over in one of the Knights Village lodges. First off let me just say, WOW. It was so much more than I expected.

The review was by what I can only imagine to be a beauty blogger, she was gorgeous and heavily made up,… Read More Friction Free Shaving: A Review by a normal mum who doesn’t shave her legs as often as she should.
So we headed out with our toddler on a windy and rainy (thank you Storm Doris!) Saturday to Warwick Castle for a bit of family time. I have never been before, but my husband and I love a castle. We seem to end up at a castle every time we go away in the UK… Read More A review: Warwick Castle
Before we start, I haven’t been paid to write this review or anything like that. Jungle Madness is a local softplay in Swadlincote, Derbyshire that we go to regularly. One of the things I have been researching quite a lot lately has been places to take Isabelle (i.e. softplays, parks) when we move. There is a… Read More A Review: Jungle Madness Softplay
Ok so if you saw my latest post you know that we are moving! Pretty much every weekend since we decided that this was happening, we have been doing the lengthy drive over to Shropshire and adventuring. I can’t wait to actually move into the new house now. It’s one of the most exciting things about… Read More Discovering Shropshire Series
A few weeks ago we were contacted by First Direct to go and see the Northern Ballet do Goldilocks and the Three Bears in Leeds. The Northern Ballet are known for their family friendly performances which tour the UK. Every year they have sell out performances and have even done shows for CBeebies! Isabelle takes… Read More Goldilocks & The Three Bears at The Northern Ballet – #fdminicritic Review
