How you can save money on your bills

When you own your own home, or rent for that matter, saving money where and when you can is really important. I have always tried to save money if I could but now that we have a 1 year old and money is tight sometimes, saving money is even more important! Saving money doens’t have to be as annoying or as complicated as changing energy suppliers though. There are loads of things you can do around the house to save a bit here and there! Underfloor Heating Trade Supplies have come up with a really helpful infographic which shows some ways that

What Do Women Really Want On Valentines Day?

The age old question, What do women really want on Valentine’s Day? I’m pretty sure if you asked my husband this question he most definitely wouldn’t know the answer. In our 5 years together, I think we’ve only actually done something once for Valentine’s Day and that was our first one together. Since then we’ve either just been busy or had other things going on so we haven’t really bothered. Also, I’m in charge of budgeting and I don’t leave any money spare for this! In order to try to get an answer to this ridiculously hard question, Rattan Direct are conducting a survey and

The Best Office Furniture

When we bought our house we picked a doer upper.  I had always planned on one part of our living room/ dining room being a library seeing as we have so many books. However, Erin pulls at things now so we’ve had to change this. All of the books are in the loft and I have a bit of an open space to consider. My little space is now going to be turned into my very own office!This means that I have to figure out what furniture to put in there and I’ve spent some time looking for the best office

Mamas and Papas Gift Finder

One of my favourite brands for all things baby is Mamas and Papas. When Erin was born we received a beautiful gift basket from Mamas and Papas and without it I may not have gotten to love the brand quite as much. We now have a Mamas and Papas Armadillo Flip XT pushchair, a Baby Pud and also loads of sleepsuits for Erin, as well as loads of other things! With Christmas quickly approaching I wanted to share with you the Mamas and Papas Gift Finder. I have really struggled with thinking of something to get family and friends who already have children or

Wildlife Competition Poll

When it comes to garden furniture, Rattan Direct are always the first company that comes to mind. With a garden also comes some fantastic wildlife. Last year John and I found a cute little hedgehog in our garden that we had to find a new home for. Our dog Jackson was a little too interested in the poor thing. It was quite exciting finding him though and I wish we hadn’t have had to move him. Before we gave the back garden an overhaul we used to get loads of butterflies and dragonflies. I really wish we hadn’t gotten rid of

Offline marketing for bloggers

When it comes to marketing for Me, him, the dog and a baby!, I try to do as much as I possibly can. I use Twitter, Facebook and Instagram mostly, all of which are online. It wasn’t until I found a survey by Colour Graphics that I actually thought about offline marketing. I have business cards made up but I never really use them. I’ve only been to a couple of events where I have needed them. I guess this is the extent of my offline marketing so far which, really, a bit pathetic. Colour Graphics are looking to find out whether or not

Similac Follow On Milk Review

As someone who was unable to breastfeed do to complications during Erin’s birth, we relied on a First Milk until she was 6 months old. Now nearly 10 months old we’re using Follow On Milk from the same brand. When Britmums got in touch about trying Similac Follow On Milk I thought it would be worth a try! To start with, I LOVE the colour of the tin that the follow on milk comes in. I know that shouldn’t really make a difference when choosing a product such as this, but it does. Similac is exclusive to Boots so you won’t see
