Summer is very much here, hopefully I am not the only parent to be suffering from the “daylight at bedtime, therefore it cannot be bedtime” issue with the children? The long days mean that darkness hits around 9:30pm, which is far too late for the kiddies to be going to bed. There is an answer to this though: blackout blinds! They are a must have for any child’s bedroom, completely magic.
Let’s face it; no parent is as bothered about their fashion choices as they were pre-parenthood. Nonetheless, there’s no doubt that looking great still makes us feel great. That should be more than enough incentive for any mom to freshen up her look this summer. Still, those decisions are only worthwhile if they retain a sense of practicality.
I love shopping, but in this heat you want a shop that has it all and a great online shop to boot! Debenhams have a jam packed holiday shop, everything from luggage, clothes and accessories to make sure your Summer is the best. In one stop I ordered aftershave, clothes for Daddy and the children, a hat for Mummy and luggage. Great for busy Mum’s trying to get sorted for the annual Summer holiday.
In the previous post, we talked about how to supercharge your fitness motivation and reclaim your pre-pregnancy body. Just because you just had a child, doesn’t mean you can’t have a great time at the beach and wear your favorite bikini too. We’re nearing the end of summer as we speak, but there is still time to have a bit of fun outside. These next few makeup, skin and hair tips will help you look awesome in a bikini.
Since going on the cruise on the beautiful Carnival Vista, I have learnt a lot about what you really need to take and what you could live without. I absolutely loved some items that I purchased before we travelled, but when I realised there wasn’t a lot of room in the suitcase I had to make some tough decisions. There are things that I wished I had taken and things that could have stayed at home. Here is my little cruise fashion checklist that I would suggest every Mum needs before going on a cruise:
When you go camping with the family, you have to make sure that everyone is happy and more importantly, comfy. Getting the right camping gear is essential to making sure everyone is happy. Everything from the right sleeping bag, air bed and the right plate to eat your breakfast on. It all helps to making sure the camping trip is as pleasant as it can be. This is my list of must have products from Millets to make your camping trip easier.
Yes the Olympics has recently started and lots of people are cheering on their favourite sports people everywhere you turn. It’s a nice theme to encourage children to have fun, swimming lessons like the swimmers in Rio. Or making up a baton so the children can do a relay race at the park. But there are also things that you can get the children doing that they can do from home, like Brain Olympics! Now doesn’t that sound fun?
More often than not the home garden goes unused or unnoticed. Well in my house it is more that I do not get time to spend in the garden as much as I would like. A garden does not have to only be for looks, it also can be a great area to entertain guests and a relaxing haven for the whole family. Using outdoor furniture you can extend your house out into the garden: creating an extra room in a way. You can do this easily by looking at things such as the layout of your garden. Any old garden can be turned into a magical grove with some high quality garden benches and tables. Here are a few tips to help you get started:
So, summer has arrived and you’re facing that annual problem of entertaining your children. Keeping them learning and their minds active over summer and not just wasted on the TV or tablets may seem like an impossible task, but luckily it’s not. Here are some top ideas to keep your kids entertained and most importantly keep them learning, a combo we all thought would be impossible.
This month The Constants are going on their first family holiday as a cruise, courtesy of Carnival Cruise Line. We get to board the new Carnival Vista which launched in May and I’m so excited. The ship is huge, it amazes me and I cannot wait to see the ship in real life. I am sure it will make me feel like an ant! The ship has so much to offer including restaurants, bars including a sports bar, the first IMAX at sea, a waterpark and pools. Oh and not forgetting the Serenity adult only, relaxation area.
