Sports Direct £5 Christmas Challenge #sdfiverchallenge

Sports Direct £5 Christmas Challenge #sdfiverchallenge

A few weeks ago I recieved an email from a Britmums collegue asking if any bloggers would like to take part in the Sportsdirect.com £5 Christmas Challenge #sdfiverchallenge, in which I had a limit of £30 to spend on the Sports Direct website on gifts that cost £5 or less. Below is a picture summarising all the gifts I managed to buy with the £30 voucher. The first gift i’m going to be talking about is this Wolf masters t-shirt,…

Christmas on a budget made easy #Blogtober2017

This year I thought it would be super exciting to take part in #Blogtober2017 if you don’t know what that is, then hop along to Hexmum’s blog (Mandi) and you can take a looksie. I have also decided that I’m going to go all Stealth mode with these posts, as i don’t want to spam my homepage with blogtober, but don’t worry I’m still taking part! – You can also click on my blogtober image in the sidebar. Day 24…

I may not be rich, but I am rich in love <3

I may not be rich, but I am rich in love <3

I may not be rich in money but I am so rich in the family that i have! So I thought I’d write this post because I’ve been involved in a discussion recently about the maternity grant and its eligibility etc. And it’s got me thinking about how I feel being a stay at home mum living in a council house and getting help from the government. Before I begin let me start by telling you how we ended up…

Logan’s 1st CHRISTMAS!

Logan’s 1st CHRISTMAS!

I cannot believe just how quickly Christmas day has come around, and I just want to say I am sorry for how slow I’ve been with blogmas, I didn’t realise how difficult it would be blog every single day, I know not all my blogmas posts have been Christmas related, so I hope you can forgive me. Christmas morning was just like any other really except we got to open presents and an excuse to eat chocolate at 10 in…

Ewan the dream sheep *Review*

Ewan the dream sheep *Review*

Before I decided to move Logan into his own room, I was thinking about how I can make that transition a bit easier and less stressful for him, I had heard about Ewan the dream sheep from another mummy and some online reviews and they all praised it for helping their little ones sleep easier/better at night, so I took the plunge and bought myself one of these little sheep, well I won it on an eBay auction for £19…

Logan’s current feeding schedule

Logan’s current feeding schedule

Logan has been really enjoying all the foods I have been putting in front of him, he’s gotten pretty good at gripping the more slippery foods like pasta which I cooked up for us tonight, it contained mushrooms, spinach, chopped tomatoes and penne pasta, I gave Logan a bit of everything I was eating excluding the mushroom just because I didn’t feel confident giving him them just yet as they are a fungus. Earlier today he had sliced cucumber and…

Sassybloom *unboxing & Review*

**Disclosure: I have not been paid or reimbursed in any way to provide this review. I paid for the Sassy Bloom box myself, and all opinions are my own** I received my November Sassybloom subscription box about 2 weeks ago now, so I am a little late on doing the review, but as most of you know it’s hard to find the time to just sit down and record a video when you have a demanding baby who’s going through…

Asda Little Angles Nappies *Review*

Asda Little Angles Nappies *Review*

I was using Aldi mamia nappies from when Logan was newborn and they were great, but as he moved up into bigger sizes we noticed a lot of leaking nappies especially at those 3am wake up calls! So I then moved him onto pampers baby dry nappies which I had no leaking with but as they were more expensive I couldn’t keep buying these especially in bulk so I needed an alternative, and since I buy my pampers nappies from…

Logan’s 7 month update

Logan’s 7 month update

I never thought 7 months would come around this fast, it doesn’t seem that long ago when he was a newborn and sleeping for hours at a time, and could barely even lift his head, but he’s come on leaps and bounds since then and definitely has a cheeky/lovable personality. What’s new this month: Very very mobile always wants to be on the move whether that be sitting on the floor, on my lap or in the jumperoo Pulling himself…

Logan’s first night in his own room 😥

Logan’s first night in his own room 😥

You did read correctly, yes, last night I made the very brave decision to put Logan in his own room, I had been thinking about it for a while but never got round to it, or I hadn’t had the baby monitors but last Friday I bought these really cheap audio baby monitors which you plug into the wall (will do a review at some point) and so I had no excuse really, It was around 4pm before Logan’s last…
