Six Months and Wingin’ It

I’ve two babogs napping, one in school and another mesmerised with PJ Masks. I found it on our Virgin On Demand this morning, we are on episode #4 and I have no plans to turn it off for the next hour, the peace of a Tuesday morning is bliss. I also have a latte by my side, sound posh don’t I? Santa brought me a Nespresso. It fills me with joy. The sound of the coffee ejecting into my glass and the aroma drowns out the noise that is this house. It is heaven. (more…)

It’s that time of year again. The New Year resolutions will be flowing and if you are anything like me they’ll be broken by the end of week one. I’m serious!

This year we will be donating our time, money, clothes and even hair… Fancy joining in? Here’s a list of 25 ways you can pay it forward this year, the possibilities are endless! (more…)

Have you seen the Tree of Life breastfeeding photo doing the rounds? Aren’t they just divine? I haven’t shared any brelfies, or any breastfeeding photo’s online before, it’s not really my thing but my gawd these are just simply amazing. I’ve seen so many people asking again and again how to do it so I had to whizz up a quick post and share with you how to do it yourself, it’s so simple and the results are just beautiful. I just love how these edits highlight the love and beauty of mother and baby in such an artistic way. I’m going to frame mine. (more…)

Gift Guide For Baby Christmas 2016

gift guide for baby Christmas 2016

Just like last year, my gift guides have some practicality to them. Newbies and young babies don’t actually play with toys so there is no point spending hundreds on toys for ‘ah they’ll grow into them’ because really they don’t, by the time they ‘grow’ into them a birthday has passed or a Christening and the junk piles up. Here’s a list of gifts for a baby up to about 12 months. I have received some of the products featured for review but I have purchased everything in the main gift thread for the new babog or prior to receiving a review copy. (more…)
