The Birth Of Miss Birdie Valentine 

The Birth Of Miss Birdie Valentine 

Well, I can’t believe I am sitting here writing the birth story of our little princess! Firstly I can’t believe I have a daughter and secondly I can’t believe she is here! It felt like the longest pregnancy EVER!!!! It all started a couple of weeks after I had suffered a miscarriage (you can read about that HERE), we weren’t really sure if we wanted to try again because I couldn’t deal with the heartbreak from the miscarriage, I didn’t want to go through anything like that again. My monthly…

What’s In My Hospital Bags

What’s In My Hospital Bags

  Packing your hospital bags can be so overwhelming, between advice from books, checklists and advice from other Mum’s it can quickly become confusing to know what we actually need to take with us to the hospital. Iv done this four times now and to be honest I STILL feel like I don’t really know exactly how much of what I need to pack! One thing I do know tho is that I am a complete over packer, hands up I admit I do go way over board but I personally like…

Woolbabe Sleeping Bag Review And Giveaway!

Woolbabe Sleeping Bag Review And Giveaway!

Prior to the birth of Cortez I hadn’t looked much into sleeping bags, when I think about it now I’m not really sure why I hadn’t, but I know the thought of them freaked me out! You know when you have your first baby and you don’t really know what your doing but you get bombed with all of this advice like “never let your baby overheat, always check their temperature” and so on? Well I took this very seriously but I was a little bit hardcore with this advice…

Miscarriage- My Own Personal Story Of Loss, Greif And Heart Ache

Miscarriage- My Own Personal Story Of Loss, Greif And Heart Ache

“There’s a unique pain that comes from preparing a place in your heart for a child that never comes” as soon as I saw this quote it literally hit me like a tone of bricks, my heart felt like it sank to my stomach and then someone ripped it out of me I just bursted into tears..Lots of tears! Miscarriage is something I never thought I would ever experience, I had normal pregnancies and 3 healthy boys to show for it, not once did the word miscarriage ever enter my…

Sunscreen- What Is Safe And What To Avoid

Sunscreen- What Is Safe And What To Avoid

I have been doing ALOT of research into safe and natural sunscreens lately because I have recently become aware of the amount of chemical filled sunscreens that are on the market and how they can be doing more harm to us than good. I have learnt some valuable information ( i will try to keep this post simple tho 😉 .. I could go on and on!) that I had no idea about before hand so I thought it would be great to share with you all.   A few particularly scary…

London & Brooklyn’s Batman Birthday Party! 

London & Brooklyn’s Batman Birthday Party! 

London and Brooklyn’s birthdays are 5 days apart (yes I didn’t really plan that very well did I?!) and London hadn’t yet experienced a birthday party of his own so this year for their 4th and 6th birthdays we decided to throw them a joint party. The first thing was planning a theme and we (cough..I) chose a monochrome batman theme and thought it would be cool to have the kids all dressed up in their favourite costumes. Jordan from With The Whittakers designed the invite for us, this girl is…

Depression And Anxiety. My Journey Through The Darkness

Depression And Anxiety. My Journey Through The Darkness

I wrote this after the birth of Cortez, it’s sat in my notes app for over a year and a half because I was too scared to post it, I was scared of being looked at differently. But you know what? Screw it, why should I care what anyone else thinks!? I care more about someone who may be sitting there suffering alone from the same symptoms that I felt and feeling like there’s no way out. I care more about someone realising that they aren’t alone and how important…

JORD Watch Review And Giveaway

I love watches so much but i really really struggle to wear them, an hour in and I’m ripping them off and itching my wrists like a mad woman! I have super sensitve skin and everything just irritates me even bracelets and rings (yes you may have noticed on Snapchat or Instagram that i never wear my wedding rings, well this is why!) When JORD Wood Watches approached me to do an honest review (I love this by the way, when brands ask for unbiased reviews..no rubbish they just want an HONEST opinion!)…

DIY Duvet Cover!

DIY Duvet Cover!

I still haven’t learnt from my last DIY post so again I am very sorry for the lack of photos!! Ok, so I have been super indecisive about what colour duvet I want on Cortez’s bed, since his bed and canopy are grey I have to be careful which colour I choose. I had two colours in mind…plain white or a light elephant grey but I didn’t want to fork out hundreds of dollars for the ones I have my eyes on incase I wasn’t happy with the colour so I decided to give…

DIY• Manrobe/Wardrobe Remodel 

I’ll start by saying that I SUCK at taking photos as I go when I do DIY projects! I do plan on taking good photos as I go but I get far too excited to get stuck into it and I forget! So apologies for the lack of photographs but I do have snapchat photos and sneaky pics (not great quialty so sorry about that!) that I had sent to people and I shall do my best to explain what I have done! So.. I had been looking for a…
