I was tagged by Emily from Emily & Indiana to answer some Festive questions, I love this time of year but I’ve been so busy I need a little help getting into the spirit of it all so I’m hoping this will help. I also filmed a different Christmas Tag as part of Vlogmas too so I’ll stick that at the bottom for anyone who’s too lazy to read this.   What’s your favourite Christmas movie? I think I give a different answer anytime someone asks this but probably the Grinch or Home Alone. I also really like Love Actually…

I don’t know about you but I’m trying to save as much money as possible this Christmas without compromising on having a good time. I’ve partnered with The Works to make this guide to toddler stocking fillers. I’ve chosen 8 items that are all under £10 and are, hopefully, quite engaging. Luisa really doesn’t need a tonne of stuff especially anything bulky. I’ve tried to pick out presents for her where everything does something, so no stuffed animals or very repetitive toys. Now that she’s getting older she definitely needs things that are a bit more stimulating or can be played…

As you’ll know from my recent post about my favourite Christmas decorations making the house look and feel festive is really important to me. I love everything about Christmas, even though there are some stressful parts and moments when thoughts of loved ones who’ve passed away weigh on me. I look forward to stocking up on seasonal candles and picking out a new bauble or two to mark the year with. If I had it my way we’d put the tree up in the last weekend of November so I could enjoy it for even longer. For that reason I…

As you might know were currently reeling from a house move and have a poorly baby so Christmas decorations have been getting put up in any spare moments I can find. We’ve done a fair bit of unpacking so far and the rest of the boxes are stashed in the spare bedroom — out of site out of mind! Once the tree was looking well I turned my attention to making the rest of the house more festive and homey. Here are a few of my own ideas for quick and easy Christmas decor and one from my talented Mum.

This Christmas a wonderful gang of breastfeeding bloggers are back to give you the chance to win some amazing prizes and hopefully entertain you with our seasonal musings. Read on for your chance to win 100s of pounds worth of goodies. I’ve been thinking a lot about the implications of breastfeeding at Christmas. I need to plan an easy access outfit, work out our plans to fit with L’s feeding schedule, pump so I can enjoy a few too many on New Years Eve. The longer my mental list got the more I began to realise that being a breastfeeding…

I never thought I’d be making a connection between elephant poo from Sri Lanka or rhino poo from a zoo in Devon and Christmas but I’m doing exactly that by working with Talk of the Town Parties showing you some beautiful eco-friendly Christmas cards this year.

As we’re moving to Belfast over Halloween this year unfortunately we aren’t able to celebrate it in our usual fashion. For the last 6 or so years Matt and I have always had a big party with lots of elabourate decor and intricate costumes. To dull the pain I’m already turning my thoughts to Christmas which – fingers crossed – we’ll be celebrating in our new house. This year will of course be Luisas first Christmas and I’m so excited to see her little face enjoying all the lights and attention. Of course she won’t be too fussed about presents…
