You may recall last Summer I had a little rave about a new website I came across: Love the Sales. The site that lists fashion items, that are just in the sale! Well, I wanted to give you a little update because I think it's brilliant and you could grab yourself a bargain before the Summer holidays arrive – find your maxi dresses and a spare pair of shorts for the kids!
As a parent, it’s always important to remember that you are a person still! It can be easy to forget all the things you used to do before you had your children, and it’s important to go back to these things every once in a while to give you a much needed break from the hard work that raising children can be! This is something I learnt the hard way this year and made some big decisions on getting some me time.
I have been looking at houses for what feels like years now, trying to find the right house for our family. They are either too small, or too dark, too new or not enough “toy space”. One thing I have been focussed on though is the garden. I want the right garden, no negotiations. It has to be a big garden. It has to have space for the children to play, the grown ups to relax and the furbabies to run around. Quite a large list and quite impossible with our budget.
Prom is one of the best times in a person’s life. You will be able to get dressed up, spend time with a date or your friends in a way you will never experience again. Prom is at the end of the year, and usually all of your peers go their own way. Whether you go on to college, or work for a living, prom is the last time you will get to spend a lot of time together before life responsibilities start to take precedence. That is why it is very important that a woman looks nice for prom and find a great dress that she can dance in and look amazing in.
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.
We all do it. No matter how well we think we have events planned out, we always forget some small aspect that seems like everything is ruined without it. A Halloween party our children for example. Unless we want sugar-infused kids running amuck with nothing to do, we better have something fun to entertain them before the party turns into a real terror. Here are five, quick, easy and fun last minute ideas that you can use this Halloween.
Preparing for a baby is a very happy time, but there is a lot that you have to get done before your new born arrives. With all of my pregnant friends around me, it got me thinking about the things you really need. What do you need to purchase in advance in order to be certain that you have everything that your baby could possibly need once he or she is home with you? Check out my tips on what you need to be totally ready for baby’s arrival. A very special life event.
Shopping with two children, especially this time of year, is just incredibly frustrating. For both parents and the children no doubt. Running around the store with the two of them, arguing about what they can and cannot have. Noah claiming that he needs the next Lego set which costs over £20 and Isla screaming because she wants the entire girls’ toy aisle, and not forgetting the cakes. Oh Coco pops. And all the Easter items that are in store at the moment. It’s much easier getting it all delivered, exactly when I want it and for free! This is what the Tesco’s Delivery saver can offer you.
There are so many nice and shining things you can buy when you are expecting your first newborn. Obviously when it comes to baby number two, you know exactly what you need and do not need. With the arrival of my little neice it made me think back to when I was expecting little Noah and here are my useful tips on what is actually useful.
Something that I plan to do every year and fail to do every year is hold some money back to hit the January sales. You can buy so many good things in the sales. Things for yourself, the home and family – after Christmas treats for the kids from the toy sections or stocking up on gifts for birthdays throughout the year and oh yes, next Christmas. This year I have a plan though and I wanted to share it with you.
