Back to school with prezzybox: Competition

I was sent these fabulous back to school items by prezzybox for the purpose of an honest review and to allow me to host the competition. All views, opinions, images and soon-to-be schoolgirls are my own. Can you believe that this little cutie with the infectious giggle and her shoes on the wrong feet starts school next week? Neither can I. But that time is upon us and it’s time to start getting ready. When prezzybox got in touch about working with us on a back to school project, I was quite smug. Nope, there was nothing I needed thank you very…

Father’s day with Prezzybox: Win!

Please note, this is a collaborative post but all views, opinions and ‘difficult to buy for’ father’s are my own. I have always struggled to know what to buy for my dad on Father’s day.

On the body of the glass, it…

Our dogs are a huge part of the family. We take them on holiday – last year they came over on the boat with us to the Isle of Wight; they come with us on days out, play with the children and generally get involved with everything that’s going on. So when Harringtons contacted us and asked if we’d like to throw the dogs a party, I thought it was a brilliant idea! This afternoon while the girls were having a nap, there was a knock at the door. Bubbles has a sixth sense for when a delivery is for…

The rabbit who wants to fall asleep: Win!

Bedtime in our house is chaos. It’s everything the experts say it shouldn’t be. The girls have a nice, sedate story downstairs with their dad while I’m working. Then they both come bombing up the stairs giggling and it’s all down hill from there. Luckily, Libby is somewhat of a pro when it comes to sleeping. She started to sleep through the night at 8 weeks old and however chaotic bedtime is, she’s usually asleep within a couple of minutes of her head hitting the pillow. Lia is a different kettle of fish. Until she was 7 months old, she…
