Gardening, outdoor adventures, Summer BBQ’s and school runs that could be hot or wet, or both! It’s that time of year where you have to prepare for the Great British Summer weather. I get to about this point every year where I have a mini check-list of things I do and I thought it would be useful to share it. Whether you are spending the day inside or outside, there is a handy tip below for you:
- Beauty & Fashion
We all know that keeping jew in a home with children is a recipe for disaster if you’re not properly equipped with the right storage equipment and procedures. Leaving a wedding ring out on the counter is like asking to have it flushed down the toilet, thrown in the sink, tossed in the trash, or worst of all – eaten. Kids love shiny things and if they see your jewellery unattended and you’re not there to stop them from taking it, you might as well count on it being messed with and possibly lost. So I thought these child-safe jewellery options would be really useful for other Mums.
I was asked by Ellisons to create a blog post on what beauty products will be popular in 2017 and I thought it was a fun thing to do. I am not an expert in this area by any stretch of the imagination, but I love using my beauty products. I love using day to day cleaning products, make up and tanning products (which I haven’t used yet this year).
If you like your man to look smart, this year, you are going to be a very happy woman. The laidback hipster look is still going to be hot, but more and more men will be pairing their jeans with a nice waistcoat or a formal jacket.
Valentines Day, February 14th, is not far away. In actual fact, it is just around the corner. I am hoping that Hubby and I will be able to get away this year and see the sights of a wonderful new City, well new to us. We are currently thinking about York. Getting hubby the right gifts for Valentines Day can always be tricky, as he has everything, but House of Fraser was a great place to shop. In mind of our trip away, these are some of my ideas…
We love getting out in the fresh air, wellies on and wrapped up nice and warm. Recently The Original Muck Boot Company launched a new range of children’s fun boots: the Hasbro collection. My Little Pony and Transformer boots in lots of small sizes, perfect for Noah and Isla, perfect for little children.
If I said to you personalised necklace, what would you imagine? For me, intially, it would be a beautiful silver necklace with engraving perhaps. But I recently discovered Jacqueline Ashworth and it has changed my idea of personalised necklaces completely. The Matilda Necklace is a beautiful family necklace that contains any combination of birthstones you require.
Recently I was introduced to a wonderful listing tool, Shoptagr, it is amazing, especially if you are a natural born “lister” like I am. I have listing stationery everywhere and for everything and this takes that stationery to a whole new digital level. You can basically browse through online shops tagging items that you love along the way, these items get added to your list and hey presto, that Christmas list is complete! Go on, create your very own list, it is really easy to get going and you’ll have a list of items in no time.
I recently received a lovely Coney sweater from Lighthouse, everything about it is just spot on. The style is great, it goes well with Jeans and wellies, or boots. The colours are great. I love the white and watermelon stripes. I love the floral inner lining too, its very pretty. It’s a great top for autumn/winter and would also make for a great Christmas gift!
I adore Autumn, it is my favourite season. Not only does everything look beautiful, but its not too cold or too hot. It’s perfect for throwing on a snuggly cardigan and a comfy paid of boots and jumping around in the leaves. This year I have fallen in love with browns and natural colours. Mixed in with my usual greys and my other love for burgundy. So when I stumbled across JD Williams, I was delighted to find so many wonderful fashion items.
