Globenfeld Chronograph Sports Watch Review

A lot of the items we review on Me, him, the dog and a baby are generally aimed at either Erin or something to do with the home. It’s not very often we get something sent for John. However, just recently we were sent the Globenfeld Chronograph Sports Watch and I knew straight away that John would love it. As soon as the watch arrived, I was impressed with the packaging and the box that it came in. This may not be a big deal for a lot of people but if you’re giving something like this as a gift

Things I Never Thought I’d Teach My Child

I think when you find out that you’re going to be a parent for the first time you have all of these ideals in your head. I know when I found out I was pregnant with Erin I thought about all the different things I thought I could teach her as she grew up. I thought that I would teach her that books are magical and that travelling the world to discover new places is such an exciting and important thing to do. However, it turns out that both me and John have ended up teaching her a whole load

16 Ways To Get Kids To Eat Healthy

I have mentioned on social media a few times lately that Erin has become somewhat of a fussy eater. Well, it’s more that she’s going through something where she doesn’t really want to eat. When we had an email drop in our inbox with some great tips for helping kids to eat healthily from Families Online, I knew that we had to share it! We’ll be trying some of this tips ourselves over the next few weeks. I think some of the tips are quite simple but as a first time parent and someone that hasn’t had to try to

Illuminate your bathroom with Lumino!

Our house is a bit strange. Yep, strange. We bought a fixer upper knowing that loads of work needed to be done. Something we really struggle with is finding places to put things, especially in the bathroom. We actually have a separate bathroom and WC and each room needs storage. We have a double bathroom cabinet in the bathroom already, jam packed with toiletries. There is no more space in there at all. We recently received a gorgeous LED battery cabinet from Lumino and I am so impressed with it. We decided that instead of replacing our large bathroom cabinet would

Office Furniture to Boost Productivity

When you are at work there’s nothing worse than being surrounded by a dull environment and ugly furniture. What you want instead is office furniture that maximises space and looks beautiful at the same time. For me, having a workspace that is large, spacious and full of storage is one of the most important things. If I am at a cramped desk with work all over the place because there is no where to put it, I don’t get much done. Mess = stress for me. A lot of office furniture is really plain and boring. While this makes it easy to

Seventh Generation Eco-friendly Household Products & Giveaway

I think when you have a family you tend to pay more attention to the products you buy and what you use around the house. I know I have become more aware of the chemicals in certain products since having Erin. I definitely try to make sure that we don’t buy anything that could irritate her skin. After attending Blog On a couple of months ago I discovered an American brand called Seventh Generation. This is a company with a difference as they make plant based products that only contain natural ingredients. This means that they are completely safe to
