Menu Planning

Hopefully without sounding too insane, I love organising and planning! Lists are one of my favourite things to make! I’ll write a list at the beginning of the week of everything I need to do and then make lists daily of specific things for that day, all the while crossing of things from the weekly list….

Play Food

I have always enjoyed making cupcakes or cookies for children. There are so many exciting designs you can make which kids absolutely adore! Below are some of my favourite that I have pinned or made over time. I’ve also given a very easy breakdown of the main ingredients needed! (I am all for shortcuts so…

Nursery Design!

For the nursery we decided to get rid of our study/2nd guest room. It wasn’t a very hard decision as we hardly ever used the room- however we did decide to keep the large double bed futon in there- in helps when we have guests and they have kids. The only problem that caused though…

Baby Boy You’ve been on my mind..

It’s no secret that I (along with most of my female family) were hoping for a baby boy! Alas we were blessed with another little girl making her appearance in August! I couldn’t help but pick out a cute outfit for this imaginary baby boy! (I somewhat ignored some of the prices however a few items…

Tell your heart to beat again..

On the 15th of October I took a pregnancy test- we were trying to have a baby but felt that this month our chance had come and gone. So I took the test- there was a faint positive! Immediately I called a friend of mine to ask whether that meant I was pregnant even if it was faint…..

Recommended Apps

Today I bring you my top recommended apps!

For those with gestational diabetes- MySugr At this stage I’m only having…

Sporty Baby

Bonds still have a major sale on at the moment so you’ll be able to pick up the leggings for 40% off. As for the Nike shoes- I know they’re a bit of overkill for little kids (and all white!) but we used a cute little pair for our pregnancy announcement so I couldn’t not…

Gestational Diabetes

“I need to see you.” Those were the first words the midwife said when I saw her 2 weeks ago. I knew I had taken the glucose test 2 days prior but I didn’t think anything of it and to be honest it didn’t even cross my mind that I had tested positive for something…

Ballerina Baby

I am loving all the baby girl items I am seeing in stores- below are a few of my favourites that I came across last week! On a side note it’s incredible that they can charge so much for something so small but this being our first little baby I have definitely turned a little…
