Zoe's Model Experience with Tommee Tippee

A few months ago I stumbled across a post on a local parenting facebook group looking for kids to feature in a Tommee Tippee online video campaign. I don't know what made me email them but it sounded quite fun and Zoe is such an insta-kid I thought she might enjoy it too. I honestly didn'…

Eyebrow Threading with Superdrug.

This summer Punky Moms UK has been working with Superdrug on a range of activities from mystery shopping to a hair dye contest. As a member of the Punky Blog Squad I was asked to go along and try out an in-store beauty treatment.My store was a bit busy to snap photos, so I got this from the superdr…

Meal Plan Like a Boss - 17/09/18

Last week went well money-wise, as I didn't need to do any top up shops and resisted buying lunch at work. I didn't stick to the plan though as I had a couple of days of leftovers and an unplanned meal out one night. I made this delicious tofu noodle dish on Monday, I have never cooked w…

Our First Wedding Anniversary.

It's our first wedding anniversary! How was this a year ago already?! In true 'us' fashion we have nothing planned, I had thought Husband was working away in Lndon this weekend but I got my dates wrong and didn't organise a babysitter. But to be honest it is more our style to sta…

Meal Plan Like a Boss - 10/09/19

Meal planning has gone well and truly out of the window in our house of late, and I am definitely noticing an spike in spending on adhoc supermarket trips and take aways. Meal planning and cooking is something I really love doing, so why am I not doing it? I think the shift of returning to full t…

Life check-in and goal setting for Autumn.

September is here, I don't know why but September always feels a bit more of a new beginning that January to me. Perhaps its the change in season, or the years spent in school and now working in higher education but I really love this time of year. A chance for a fresh start. Things have been…

Family Memories with Cheerz (plus a discount code!)

It was my birthday last week, birthdays and anniversary's always make me a bit nostalgic, thinking back to childhood parties and memorable presents. Its funny how memories work, I have vivid memories of my 4th birthday but after that I feel like my memories are based on photos I have seen of ca…

Making the Most of our Weekend - Lightwater Valley

Since going back to full time hours at work back in March 2018, I have really tried to make the most of our weekends as a family. So, with this in mind I thought I would start a new feature all about how we make time for ourselves as a family. It is so easy to get caught up in the rat race of ful…

Conquering the Curls. - Our curly hair care routine.

One of my most asked questions on Instagram is how I deal with Zoe's curls. I do not have curly hair so its been a bit of a learning curve for me too, but I thought I would write up a little 'what we do' post. I am no expert, we have just experimented and come up with what works for us …

Life Lately - June 2018

Well, long time no see once again. Life seems to keep finding a way to get in the way of blogging. I have umm-ed and ah-ed over wether to continue calling myself a blogger these days, but the fact is, I love it and its been such a huge part of the last 12 years. So here is a little update to whats…
