Up until a few weeks ago I was a school librarian so as you can well imagine books are my thing! When Bookabees got in touch I was thrilled. Bookabees are a subscription book company and I just love what they do. Every month your child has a new box of books delivered, it’s handpicked for them so it’s a great way of engaging them and encouraging them to read.. You then hold onto the books for up to 2 months and either return them or purchase them for a 50% discount. It’s like a subscription box book shop and… View Post

This is the first of my Christmas gift guide posts on the run up to Christmas. I have put together a list of 10 books that I think would be lovely in a Christmas Eve box this year.

My little man loves superheroes, if he could be one himself I think he would be. So when Hallmark got in touch about their new Justice League Itty Bittys I knew he would be excited. If you haven’t seen Itty Bittys before, you need to! They are adorable tiny soft versions of much loved characters and quite simply are super cute. Hallmark sent us an amazing box full of goodies so that we could join in with their #strongertogether campaign including their very own superhero gang in Itty Bitty form. With the new Justice League film coming out on Friday… View Post

**Trigger – Baby Loss**   When I have sadly lost people close to me in the past one of my worries has always been forgetting. I had a fear of forgetting what they looked like or what they sounded like. However, I have got years and years of memories with them and hundreds of photos. A couple of nights ago I woke up at 2am filled with worry and upset. I don’t know if I had been dreaming about my baby girl but all of a sudden I had this overwhelming fear of forgetting her. I was worried I would… View Post
