Decorating Your Child’s Room This Christmas

Disclaimer: This is a collaborative post. All opinions are our own.   Christmas is such a special time for children and decorating the house is one of the highlights of the season for me. Last year we tried to get Erin a bit more involved and she helped to put a couple of decorations on the tree and wowed in amazement at how shiny and pretty they all were. One room that might be overlooked when decorating for Christmas is your child’s bedroom. Here are some tips and ideas for decorating your child’s room this Christmas.

Health Concerns That Come With Age

Disclaimer: This is a collaborative post. All opinions are our own.   To a lot of people 32 isn’t old. In my head, I know 32 isn’t old too. This year especially seems to have gone faster than others and it seems like one minute Erin was being born and in the next we’re getting ready for her to turn 3. I’ll be turning 33 in just a couple of months and it makes me think that 40 really isn’t that far away. One thing I worry about with regards to getting older is my health. Existing

Tips For Planning Your Ideal Wedding

AD | Collaborative post 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 plan

Raising Awareness About Colic With Infacol

Looking back to 3 years ago when I was pregnant with Erin, I feel like I probably should have done more reading. Not in a read for pleasure sense but more of pregnancy and parenting books. I know that some people think that these kinds of books put the fear of God into you and can be like Googling something when you’re ill but I think they would have prepared me so much more. You see, as a first time parent especially, there are so many things I didn’t know and hadn’t even heard of.

Home, Health And The Future

AD When John and I bought our house 4 and a half years ago we did so thinking it would be our forever home. I found the house buying process so stressful that I really don’t want to do it again for a very long and that’s partly why we bought somewhere that needs a lot of work doing to it that we can do over time.

Why A Spanish Villa Could Work For Your Next Family Holiday

AD | Collaborative post I only went on a holiday overseas for the first time when I was 18 and I loved it. A week in Benidorm and the experience of complete freedom was exactly what I needed but it also got me hooked to travelling. Over the years I have been lucky enough to go on some wonderful holidays to places such as New York and Rome. However, now we are a family of three our holiday needs have changed quite a lot and that means looking at different kinds of holiday and accommodation.

5 Ways To Save Money When Buying Presents

Speaking from personal experience, it is really easy to over spend or go over the top when it comes to buying presents for others. If you’re anything like me, and pick things up all through the year when I see them, the loft becomes a great hiding place but it always means I tend to forget what I’ve already bought. This means I end up with more presents than I need and spending more money than I should have. With Christmas in less than 100 days it’s really time to start thinking about ways to
