A Night Of Goodness With Arla |AD

Cosy nights in with my girls are my favourites, Arla provided the girls and I all we needed for a ‘goodness night in’ We couldn’t wait to get stuck in to our box of goodies. We snuggled up with some delicious hot chocolates made with Arla Goodness in our newly customised mugs! We ate freshly popped pop corn (some more than others cough cough). We played monopoly, and I tried to keep my competitive nature under wraps but ended up having the thrash all the kids anyway (opps). We finished up with a film – the perfect evening if you… View Post

How to avoid Boxing Day spending temptation

We’ve all been tempted by the Boxing Day sales, with the promise of massive savings on much-needed items.

And just like that it’s November.  October was a bit of a blink and you miss it month for us. It just seemed to fly by with a mixture of going to work, school for the kids and trying to keep on top of everything.

We have pulled out the knit wear, the coats and we are enjoying movie nights with hot… View Post

Treads School Shoes |Review & Competition|

We have made it to the end of the first half term for this academic year! I think we have all breathed a sigh of relief as we did that last school drop off this morning. It’s been a long term for me partly due to the girls continual habit to forget everything. So far we’ve had an entire school uniform, one school shoe, a pair of football boots, a lunch box along with countless ties and pencil cases going missing at school. Luckily we’ve been reunited with each item within a few days but the stress on a Wednesday… View Post

A Dinner Party Made Easy With La Belle Assiette

I do love to throw a good dinner party. Having all my friends over to a good old girly chat with some good food and a glass or three of wine. You can’t beat it. Well at least that’s what I thought. Until my friends and I experienced a stress free dinner party courtesy of La Belle Assiette. We were very lucky to have the fantastic Steven Vanderveken cooking for us for the evening. It felt a little bit bizarre handing over the kitchen and letting someone else take complete and utter control, but I won’t lie it was bloody lovely not… View Post
