*Trigger Warning* ‘I’m glad it’s not twins!’ A pregnant mama said that to me today in the park. She was relieved that her larger than average bump was only carrying one baby. I smiled along with her, even nodded along in agreement when she said what a nightmare it would have been as she already had one child. It wasn’t her fault that I walked away from that conversation with my 4 year old and baby twinless twin a little bit stung. She wasn’t to know that just 8 months ago I had delivered beautiful twin girls yet I was only… View Post

I don’t very often buy clothes at full price, especially for the kids. There is always a sale somewhere and two maternity leaves don’t exactly leave you swimming in money. I have always been very impressed with the idea behind Love the Sales. They do all the hard work for you by finding the sales for you! Not only that but they group everything together by type, not just brand. Their website is so easy to use and you really can find some real bargains and hidden gems. At the moment Love the Sales are sharing a huge Converse sale… View Post

***Trigger Warning – Baby Loss*** Grief is an odd concept. We all do it differently. There are no rules, no right and wrong way to cope with it. You have no idea how you will cope until it happens.

Mothers Day is around the corner and one of my favourite things to do is finding lovely gifts so I thought I would put the two together again and do a gift guide. I have some really lovely and a little different things this year. To be honest these are all very ‘me’ things but I’m sure lots of other mama’s out there would love them too. So without further babbling, here they all are.   1  Kate Spade Dipped Initial Notebook – Oh I do love pretty stationary and this Kate Spade notepad is the prettiest of all. You can… View Post

Little Lady is now 7 months old. No, I’m not sure how that happened either! My tiny little 3lb baby who I sat with day after day staring into her incubator is now a chubby 15lb and most importantly healthy. She spent 9 weeks in Neonatal and came home weighing just over 4lbs. We are on the good side of things now but when we first bought her home it was all quite overwhelming. I really appreciated the people around me being understanding but sometimes people aren’t quite as accommodating. Understandably everyone wants to meet the baby that has been kept… View Post
