Win £30 to spend at Party Bags and Supplies

After the excitement of Baby’s first birthday, things are finally getting back to normal in the grumpy household. The decorations have now been taken down, the balloons are quietly letting themselves down in a corner, and the birthday cards will soon be packed up in a keepsake box, along with all the other knickknacks and bits and bobs that I’ve been squirrelling away as memorabilia from Baby’s childhood. I imagine that by the time I’m finished I’ll have enough junk to fill a museum so she had better do something to become famous! Having never been involved in the running […]

5 Alternative uses for Dummy Clips + Baby Wings Giveaway

5 Alternative Uses For Dummy Clips

If you had said the words “dummy clip” to me before I had Baby I would have stared at you blankly but now I can’t walk across a room without passing at least three of them! I love dummy clips as they are so handy and not just for preventing Baby’s dummy from disappearing to the same place as all of her left socks. I often find myself using them to clip, tie, and attach things that are way outside of the usual dummy clip remit and although I’ve tried lots of different clips, my favourites are still Baby Wings. […]

Review: InkRocket Mummy & Me Clothing + Giveaway

InkRocket Mummy & Me clothing review

About InkRocket InkRocket are an ethically and environmentally friendly clothing company selling unique designed t-shirts and sweatshirts for parents and children. My Review of InkRocket As I mentioned in my previous post about building a capsule wardrobe, high fashion is something of a mystery to me. I love clothes, but I’m most often found in jeans and a t-shirt, so when the opportunity arose to review InkRocket’s new line of coordinated “Mummy & Me” clothing I jumped at the chance. In My experience, matching parent and child outfits can be amazing, or they can be cheap and tacky. I had […]

Klipeasy multipurpose clips review

About Klipeasy Klipeasy is a small robust clip with a strong spring mechanism. It is both washing machine and tumble dryer safe, has a flat head to prevent it damaging anything you clip and can easily be hung from a suction cup or small nail. My review of Klipeasy I wasn’t sure what to expect when I received my Klipeasy pack, after all, clothes pegs haven’t had a re-design for half a century for good reason and I wasn’t convinced they needed one now. However, Klipeasy is more than just a clothes peg. Klipeasy clips seem to be a hybrid, […]

Fidget Spinner Giveaway

Fidget Spinner Giveaway

It’s been a while but England is once again in the grips of a craze. The last time this happened the toy of choice was loom bands, remember them? The tiny bands which appeared over night and were suddenly the must have pocket money toy. The first time Child turned up with some I actually thought they were quite cool… that was until I’d spent hours trying to make an incredibly complicated bracelet for her and found myself hoovering up more loom bands than I would have believed possible for months afterwards. In the end I was glad when that […]
