Nutmeg A/W Collection

As much as I hate the thought of saying goodbye to Summer (let’s face it, it barely feels like we have had one at all), I do love the onset of Autumn and Winter. I love the season of crisp leaves, snuggly fires and occasions such as Halloween, Bonfire Night and of course *shudder* Christmas. What I love even more however, is the excuse to go and get the girls some new season clothes that start to hit the shelves towards the end of August / early September. I was recently approached by Nutmeg, the clothing brand available in Morrisons...

Our In The Night Garden Picnic Party

This summer the NSPCC teamed up with In the Night Garden HQ to launch a very special themed fundraising event – the Picnic Party. The aim was to encourage families across the country to get together and host their very own picnic, asking for donations to support the charity in return. When we were invited to take part and help spread the word about the project, we didn’t take long to say yes – the NSPCC is a charity very close to my heart. As a Mum of two, I am fully behind the initiatives of the NSPCC including Childline and...

Here’s what I would do if I won the lottery:- Move house – I love...

Erin’s Back to COOL Uniform

Ask what part of starting ‘big school’ Erin is most excited about, and she would not hesitate with her answer. The Uniform. For the last year now, Erin has watched the older children walk up and down our road during our walk to preschool and admired everything about the ‘big girls’ and their uniform. From the long white socks to the little grey pinafores, she can not wait to wear them all. At times, when left to play on her own, she will pull her socks up as high as she can and pop on her nursery “pack pack” and walk...

REVIEW & GIVEAWAY – Isla Fisher Children’s Books

Isla Fisher is one of those celebrities who never seems to age. I remember Isla Fisher from her days as Shannon in Home & Away, and more recently for her roles in The Great Gatsby and Diary of a Shoppaholic (one of my favourite books of all time). What you may not know about Isla Fisher is that she also has her own range of childrens books, and they are actually pretty hilarious. As Mum to three children of her own – daughters Olive and Elula, and son Montgomery (LOVE the names!), Isla had been making up stories at bedtime for...
