A Charity Shop Bargain For The Living Room

In the town where I live there are plenty of charity shops. I can think of at least 7 within a couple of minutes of each other. In a city that might not seem like a lot but I live in a small town so a large percentage of ‘town’ is charity shops. I have a couple of favourites and I’ve written before about some of the bargains I have picked up. This year I am on a bit of a mission to get some things done around the house. It’s not all about DIY but making some of the rooms

Stay Fuzz Free With Nad’s Waxing Products

AD | Gifted products I don’t know about you but when it comes to some kinds of personal care, I just don’t have a lot of time. Gone are the days where I could spend over an hour in the bath having a pamper and sorting myself out. I also can’t afford to have salon treatments to save a bit of time. There’s always something better or more important to spend my money on. I honestly don’t bother too much during the winter because I tend to wear a lot of leggings, jeans or jumpers but summer isn’t too far

Looking Back At Our Special Moments With Optimalprint

AD | Paid collaboration I remember getting my first ever camera and since then, I have taken thousands of photos. Unfortunately, most of the photos end up sitting in a folder on a computer and we never do anything with them. Of course, there are the photos I take for work and we have a few printed around the house but not very many. This year though I’m determined to start making more of the photos I take and I recently discovered Optimalprint, who offer a really great range of personalised photo products. We’re very lucky that we get to do

Starting A Savings Fund And How To Add To It

Over the years money has been tight. Some years it has been worse than that and we’ve really had to scrape something together at times. Money has never really been an easy thing in our house but we’ve also not really been very sensible about it either. The only time I think we have ever had any savings is when we were saving to buy our house, over 5 years ago. Since then I think we’ve only ever had some kind of savings when we’ve had a holiday to plan for or something. So, now that we’re in a bit

Children’s Book Review: Superhero Gran

AD | Contains a gifted item and affiliate links Superhero Gran by by Timothy Knapman and Joe Berger. It was published by Nosy Crow on 9th January 2020 and can be purchased on Amazon (AD). All grandmothers are wonderful and the gran in this story is no exception. She might not lift buildings or go whooshing through the sky, but she can plan super sleepovers, tell super-funny stories and even put together super disguises. This gran really does have super powers! You might have seen that my Mum moved in with us just before Christmas. Erin is so happy to have her

10 Places To Visit In Norfolk With Kids

I think we’re pretty lucky that we have so many different things to do in Norfolk. It’s quite a large county to live in and depending on which area you live in, you can find some amazing places to visit or go to for days out. With February half term just around the corner I thought I would share some of the great places you could visit in Norfolk. Cromer Cromer is really just down the road from where we live (15 minutes by train) and we always love a day out there. Not only is there a great beach and

Updating Our Living Room With The Capri Coffee Table

AD | Gifted item Last month we had a mini makeover in the living room as we hard a new carpet fitted. It was such a massive job that should have probably been done years ago but it’s a huge room and it wasn’t cheap. Since then, the room has really been transformed and I’ve been trying to make it into the room I really want. After having a bit of a move around we ended up with a lot more play space in the back half of the room which meant that we could do something different with the

Getting A Helping Hand With The Cleaning From ACE

AD | Includes gifted items On a regular week I could lose track of how many loads of laundry I do. I would say that my washing machine is on at least once every day of the week. Somehow, it seems like the clothes that need washing breeds and they end up taking over the house if I don’t keep on top of it all. With a pretty messy 4 year old, husband who somehow always manages to be a bit mucky and me who easily drops food down tops, I need cleaning products that really work and that removes
