What We’ve Been Watching: November 2018

What We’ve Been Watching is a monthly feature where we talk about everything we’ve been watching over the past month. It might be something on Netflix, Sky or even just a DVD we’ve had for years but wanted to watch again. If we’ve been watching something new we’ll talk about that too! *May contain spoilers so read with caution! The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Sabrina the Teenage Witch was one of my favourite shows growing up and I have watched probably every episode a lot more than once. When The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina was announced I was a little bit

How To Have A Beautiful Garden In Winter

When we moved into our house around 4 and a half years ago we knew that the garden needed attention quite quickly. The previous owners left it in such a mess that we needed 3 skips to clear the junk and then we had to have a landscaper to level the whole of the garden. For the first couple of months I loved it. We had a beautiful big lawn and so much space compared to what it was before because it was very neat and tidy. I was so in love with our new garden and I wanted to

How To Look After Your Gut Health This Christmas

Disclaimer: This is a collaborative post. All opinions are our own.   As a nation it would seem that we can go overboard when it comes to Christmas. This might be in how much we spend on presents, how many times we go for a night out or maybe it’s how much we eat. I will be the first to admit that, as a family, we most certainly over indulge when it comes to food.

The Diary of a Shoe Lover

Disclaimer: This is a collaborative post. All opinions are our own.   Way back when I was 18 I worked for what was a very well-known shoe shop. Unfortunately, I think the company went into administration years ago and now there aren’t any shops left. At the time I couldn’t have asked for a better job, especially as it was where I went straight after working at McDonald’s. Working in a shoe shop meant being able to take advantage of certain things like staff discount. As we were required to wear shoes sold at the shop for work we got 50%

PJ Masks Mission Control HQ Playset Review

Disclaimer: We received this product for the purpose of this review. All opinions are our own.   Over the past couple of months Erin has really become a fan of PJ Masks. It wasn’t something we watched a lot of but then she surprised me one day with somehow knowing all of the character’s names and being desperate to get Catboy out of one of those plastic eggs. As soon as I saw the PJ Masks Mission Control HQ Playset I knew it would be a toy that Erin would love. The PJ Masks Mission Control HQ Playset needs some assembling before it

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.

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. Window Stickers One very easy

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.
