Erin’s 4th Birthday Princess Party

When Erin turned four in mid June, there was only one theme choice when it  came to planning her party. Princesses. This girl pretty much lives, eats and sleeps all things princess, and has a mini obsession with all things pink, tiaras, pretty dresses and magic. A few weeks have passed now since the big day (it all went by in a bit of a blur!!) and we have only just about recovered! For her party we had around 14 children (and their associated parents!) round to a garden party – with visitors being between the ages of 9 months and...

REVIEW – Dodo & Bilby Toys

Ever since Erin was tiny I have always loved wooden toys. There is something special about a more natural traditional toy, that helps encourage imagination, creativity and fine motor skills whilst at the same time being made from sustainable materials as opposed to being full of plastic or including batteries. We were recently approached by Dodo & Bilby to see if we wanted to review their website. After a few moments looking around on the site, I knew instantly that their range of products would be a hit with both the girls and I! About Dodo & Bilby Dodo and Bilby is...
