Unisex Sunglasses From Zippo

AD | Gifted Summer might have come to an end but there are some things I’m not willing to give up just yet. One of those things are my sunglasses! There are still some days where it’s quite warm and the sun gets really bright, especially when I’m walking across the park on the way to taking Erin to and from nursery. I hate having to squint so I always have a pair of sunglasses in my bag or in the pocket of the pushchair. John and I both needed new sunglasses this year and we found some wonderful designs

David Charles Spring/ Summer 19 Dress Review

AD | Gifted item Over the past year or so Erin has really gotten into wearing dresses more. I really didn’t put her in them too often as a baby because for her, they just weren’t practical. Being strapped in to the pushchair meant that the dress only got in the way so it was easier to not buy any. Last summer though when we were potty training Erin we put her in dresses a lot for ease and she absolutely loved wearing them. Now, getting a new dress really puts a smile on Erin’s face so when we were

Dressing to Impress on Date Night

AD | Collaborative post Whether this is your first date with a handsome admirer or a long-standing arrangement with your other half, it is an occasion worth dressing up for. If you don’t make an effort for date night, it spells doom for your relationship. After all, if you show up wearing worn denim and a casual tee, it tells your date that you don’t really care that much about impressing them. It’s hardly a good start to the evening! Here are some handy tips to help you select the right outfit for date night, so your date is suitably

A Winter Wardrobe Boost From Fashion World

AD – This post is in collaboration with Fashion World. All opinions are our own.  Over the past few weeks the weather has really changed and it’s been freezing lately. Some parts of the country even had some snow although I’m very glad that we didn’t get any here in North Norfolk. If last year is anything to go by, we could be looking at worse weather still to come and this time I want to be prepared! Fashion World recently asked me to put together an outfit and I was quite excited about the challenge. When I was thinking about

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%

Finding The Perfect Summer Shoes With JD Williams

I hate winter. I absolutely hate it. I cannot stand the cold and wearing winter boots for months on end is my idea of hell. If it wasn’t super cold a lot of the time I would probably wear sandals all year round. Having hot feet is horrible and I love the freedom of wearing sandals. The sandals I had last year were a bit beaten up after playing in the garden with Erin for hours on end so this year I desperately needed some new shoes ready for summer. JD Williams came to the rescue and really kitted me

Perfect Plus Size Swimwear From UKSwimwear

When preparing for a family holiday abroad, especially with children, it’s really easy to forget about yourself. I have had lists going for months for John and Erin as well as bags full of new things covering my bedroom. For me though, I ended up with 2 new pairs of shorts the week before our holiday and not much else. Although I luckily haven’t needed too much one thing that desperately needed replacing was my swimsuit. The swimsuit I was using, ever single week for Erin’s swimming lessons, was one I’d had since 2013. I remember buying it in the

Updating My Shoe Collection With XY London

Spring is finally here. Well, it is if you can ignore that fact that it’s been raining nearly non-stop for the best part of the week. It’s time to put away the big jumpers and other winter clothes and look forward to a spring wardrobe and maybe some updates! However, updating your wardrobe doesn’t have to mean only buying new clothes though. XY London is a great place to start if you’re looking for new shoes and bags. Sandals are the obvious choice now that it’s spring and I love these Frankie Sliders in black (£19.99) I don’t tend to
