Is a joint life insurance policy better than individual ones?

This is a guest post by FCA registered brokerage; Reassured. Joint life insurance is a policy taken out by a couple, which protects both parties simultaneously. You pay one monthly premium, there’s a single policy document and the terms and conditions cover both named parties. But is joint life insurance cover always the best option? From our experience, those in long-term relationships, often choose joint life insurance without considering the alternatives.

Setting up a shared bedroom with ReallySpruce

Setting up a shared bedroom with ReallySpruce

As some of you may have read a few months ago, we recently moved the children into one larger bedroom. A few reasons really: mainly because Isla found it hard to get to sleep on her own and secondly because Isla had a tiny bedroom. We moved them into the one room and we made sure they each had their space. This post is all about their latest addition to the shared bedroom: their bunk beds.  VIEW the POST

Will you two stop fighting!!

Please tell me I am not the only parent to constantly repeat this sentence? It is a whirring cycle of “play nicely” and then “destroy eachother” – repeat until bedtime.

5 tips to understand the new shared parental leave legislation

Did you know from 4 April 2015 both Mums and Dads can share the parental leave and make it work, best, for their family? I know legislation can look and sound scary, but I am sure you are already thinking about how it will benefit you. Or maybe you are like me, thinking this would have been brilliant when I was expecting my children. The Government information for Shared Parental Leave and Pay really breaks it down so it is easy to understand, it is definitely worth a read if you are expecting a baby after 4 April 2015.
