Busy books!

This week, Libby has been lucky enough to be sent some absolutely gorgeous books to review by Campbell Books. We’ve had a chat about it, and we’ve decided to review them in two separate posts because there are quite a few and we love them all! This first review is about the four “busy” books; Busy Garage; Busy Park; Busy Farm and Busy Train.  Libby is growing up and changing every day, her speech is really coming along, as is her ability to amuse herself. Because I work full time, I can’t do things around the house when Libby is…

Reasons my kid is crying

Usually when I hear from Macmillan books, they are asking me to review one of their fabulous children’s books with Libby. That’s why I was so pleased when this time, they asked me to review a book that was one for me to read!  Reasons My Kid is Crying by Greg Pembroke is a fabulous book that was published as a result of a photograph that Greg Pembroke had published online. The photograph was of his toddler in the depths of a tantrum, caused by the fact that he had broken his piece of cheese. Understandably, many parents related to this…

The reason for this was because of the terrible problems she has suffered throughout her life, caused by gum disease. Luckily for me, her experience has meant that I have…

Why I’m not a beauty blogger

There are a myriad of reasons why I’m not a beauty blogger. I don’t have time for a skincare routine. I work full time, look after Libby full time and attempt to fit in some fitness. Some mornings I don’t get time to brush my teeth, nevermind brushing my hair and showering. Make-up is something that I might wear once a month on the rare occasions that I leave the house without my wellies. Sadly though, these aren’t the main reasons why I couldn’t be a beauty blogger. My main problem with beauty products is based around ethics. I have a…

New shoes!!!

Last week, I received an email asking if I would like to review a pair of running shoes. This came at the perfect time for me, my old pair were so far beyond repair it was no longer funny. I really couldn’t justify forking out for another pair of shoes but I was determined to keep on running. I have done a half marathon and a triathlon recently in shoes that were digging into my feet at the back where the fabric had worn away and had huge holes in the toes.  So you can imagine my excitement this afternoon…
