Like most mums, I think, I tend to live vicariously through Luisa. One of my vices is clothes shopping for her, there are just so many cute things you can pick up and thanks to online shopping it’s oh so easy for a few bits to fall in your basket. I’ve been taking on a lot fewer reviews on the blog this year but when one of my favourite brands got in touch about their new collection I couldn’t help myself.     I featured From Babies With Love in November when I showed you their range of organic soft toys.…

I don’t know about you but I don’t need an excuse to eat pancakes. I won’t be held ransom by the calendar – I’m a maverick! That being said, loading up on carby sugary goodness on a regular basis probably isn’t the best idea. With that in mind this Pancake Tuesday I’m sharing a couple of recipes, some are totally decadent and some are healthier ways to enjoy one of my favourite breakfast treats.   Before you dive headfirst into a bowl of maple syrup I have a few tips, tricks and product recommendations. You want to start out with quality kit…

As most of you probably know we’re not long back from New York. We had a fantastic time and took lots of photos and video so there will be much more info our trip soon. Today I’m sharing something a bit different that we packed for our trip – suncream. That might sound a bit bonkers but I did my research and knew that the snowy east coast would require some sun protection. I was lucky to be working with Boots to trial and review their Soltan Once range. They kindly sent us a bit of a winter sun survival kit.…

We were recently given a every exciting opportunity to review the Baby Jogger City Tour stroller. If you’re a bit of a pram nut like me you’ll know the super compact buggy market is about to explode. These kinds of stroller are the latest must-have, especially for space conscious parents. So many of us live in apartments, drive cars with small boots and love to travel so space is always at a premium. The Baby Jogger City Tour takes these challenges facing modern parents and laughs in their face. The stroller is super compact, extremely quick to fold, has its own storage bag…

From Babies with Love has Christmas covered with their new soft toy collection, perfect for ethically and environmentally conscientious parents. This new line is not only chic and stylish but made from sustainable organic cotton. If you’ve been around here for a while you’ll know I try to be quite conscious of what I buy and the companies I support. I’m far from perfect but I like to be as ethnically minded a consumer as possible.     So the new soft toy range has five characters and is suitable from birth. The characters included in the range are the Stork, the Jellyfish,…

The Autumn and Winter can be pretty stressful for our four legged friends. It feels like November-January is pretty much open season for fireworks, at least where I live anyway. Don’t get me wrong Halloween; Guy Fawkes, Christmas, New Year – it’s all good fun but it can be difficult for our pets.     Lintbells are a company who specialise in supplements for dogs, they are best known for their joint and skin supplements YuMOVE and YuMEGA. They’ve recently come out with YuCalm, an all natural dietary supplement designed to help dogs relax and cope better with stresses like fireworks.…

Those of you who’ve read my blog for a while will know that a few months ago I started interning at Social Sparkle. That’s since turned into a life changing job but today it’s not all about me because I’m sharing some exciting news on behalf of one of my clients. This week Nadim Saad launched the latest title in the ‘Kids Don’t Come With A Manual’ Series. ‘The Working Parents’ Guide to Raising Happy and Confident Children’ is now available in paperback and on Kindle. One of the biggest challenges all working parents face is a fundamental lack of time.…
