Remembering Our Fantastic Firsts With Little Tikes

Disclaimer: We received this item for the purpose of this review. All opinions are our own.  As a parent, whether it be your first time or 4th time, you experience firsts with your child all the time and with Erin turning 3 in just under 2 months I have been enjoying looking back at some of the things we have done up until now. We have teamed up with Little Tikes to celebrate #LittleTikesFantasticFirsts and the Fantastic Firsts Toy range so I wanted to share some of these moments that I have experienced as a new and first time Mum. We

Thomas And Friends Alphaphonics Tablet Review

Disclaimer: We received this item for the purpose of this review. All opinions are our own.  Erin, at the moment, is one of those children who wants to learn. In January she will be moving up to the 3+ room at nursery and from then, she will be spending time with the reception class in school and joining in with learning things like phonics. Erin has shown an interest in letters and words for quite a long time now and I want to help encourage her at home. We were kindly sent the Thomas And Friends Alphaphonics Tablet recently and it

The Christmas Organisation Fail

Usually by this time of the year I feel pretty smug. This year I feel whatever the opposite of smug is. You see, for as long as I can remember I have been the most organised person when it comes to Christmas. With the exception of 1 year where I thought I would try doing all of my Christmas shopping on Christmas Eve (I don’t know what I was thinking), I have always been done before December. My shopping is usually done, all of my wrapping is done and usually all of my Christmas cards have been written out and

Tips For Planning Your Ideal Wedding

This is a collaborative post. All opinions are our own. Last month John and I celebrated our 5th wedding anniversary and my sister is currently planning her wedding. John and I didn’t really have a traditional wedding as we got married in Florida with just the two of us. We purposely didn’t invite any friends or family as we knew some could afford it and some couldn’t and we thought that this was a fair way of doing things. As we had our wedding exactly the way we wanted it I thought I would share some tips about how to

Count With Peppa Review

Disclaimer: We received this item for the purpose of this post. All opinions are our own. A couple of months back Erin randomly noticed that we had a piggy bank on one of the shelves in the living room. Since then, she has been really interested in trying to count the coins and trying to understand what money really is. As soon as I saw Count with Peppa I knew that it would be something Erin would not only enjoy playing with but also get a lot of out. Count with Peppa consists of a very brightly coloured figure of Peppa

Mr Frosty Choc Ice Maker Review

Disclaimer: We received this item for the purpose of this review. All opinions are our own.  When I think back to my own childhood one of the most memorable toys was a Mr. Frosty. I remember wanting one for so long and being incredibly excited when I finally got one. When I first heard about the Mr Frosty Choc Ice Maker it brought back such good memories and although not the same toy, I knew it would be something Erin and I could enjoy playing with together. The box comes with a Mr. Frosty and penguin 3D mould, chocolate melting pot which then doubles

When Did Fussy Eating Become A Competition?

Erin is quite the fussy eater and it can be a nightmare to get her to eat a proper meal. While she’s at nursery she eats really well and has cooked meals on the days she is there. Erin’s nursery is attached to a private school and all of the children eat lunch together so this encourages her to do the same as her friends are doing. At home though, we struggle. I think Erin would live on cereal and toast if we would let her. Luckily, she really likes fruit so we always have that available to her. Every
