Keeping the family warm this winter with Mountain Warehouse

With weather forecasts predicting snow again this year, it’s best to be prepared for the colder weather. That means making sure you keep yourself and your family warm this winter.

Indoors and out it’s important to keep warm. Layering up indoors with long-sleeve t-shirts and jumpers is a must. Wearing socks and a dressing gown in the evenings too can also help to keep the cold out!

When it comes to staying warm outdoors you’ll need a waterproof coat that’s warm and durable.

Mountain Warehouse kindly sent us some winter coats to help keep our family warm. We were sent two Lightening 3-in-1 kids waterproof jackets for our twins.

Christmas Gifts for Men


Socks are a true Christmas staple in our household and I’m sure in many other peoples too! This year why not add a little luxury to your gift. Thanks to David Gandy and the London Sock Company you can do just that! The style God has worked with the fashion-forward sock brand to create a limited edition gift set which oozes British heritage for the modern gentleman.

 Each gift set includes the ‘Simply Sartorial Skye Blue’, Limited Edition Winter Houndstooth’ and ‘Spotted in Shoreditch’, pairs packaged in a luxury gift box.

My personal favourite is the Limited Edition Winter Houndstooth. As well as being fashionable and soft, they’re luxuriously thick ensuring that your man’s feet will be kept warm this winter!

The limited edition ‘My Selection’ by David Gandy is available for £35 from the London Sock Co.

Vonage Review

Many people have friends and family jotted all over the world, but staying in touch can often be expensive.

Vonage is a company that allows people to make phone calls over the internet using your home phone. It can help to dramatically cut the cost of the UK and International phone calls you make on your home phone and even on your smartphone.

Vonage bypasses traditional phone networks by routing all your calls through the internet via VOIP (Voice Over Internet Protocol) technology. Using your broadband connection if you’re using your home phone, and your Wi-Fi connection, GSM or mobile data (3G/4G) if you’re using a smartphone.

You don’t need a PC or a microphone headset – just your usual telephone handset.

You’ll be sent a small box which you just need to connect to your existing broadband by plugging it directly into your broadband router. You then need to plug your existing phone into your Vonage box and then pick up the phone to make your first phone call.

Gro-Clock Review

Getting children to wake at a ‘reasonable’ time in the mornings is probably one of the biggest problems that every parent faces.

I remember that for the first six months of our girls lives they slept all night without waking. I’d actually have to wake them to give them their bottle! I thought it was brilliant and for some reason I thought it would last forever! Sadly it didn't and as soon as their first tooth starting pushing through, sleep went out the window.

At almost three years old our sleeping arrangements aren't the best, but they work for us! R in fairness does sleep in her own cot all night. Although her cot is in our room! M also sleeps all night – in our bed!

I don’t mind because it works for us, but as mentioned above they’re almost three now so I think we’re going to have to start getting them into their own room in their own beds.

Wake up time in the morning for our girls is anywhere from 6am onward so I guess it’s not too bad, but it would be even better if was around 7am.

The Gro-Clock is a product that I’ve heard of before and I’ve also heard many positive reviews about it. It’s essentially a sleep training clock which teaches children to stay in bed until they see the sun.

Vlog Hop

Vlog Hop is a new linky that myself and Ickle Pickles Mummy from The Little Life of Ickle Pickle will be hosting on a fortnightly basis.

We're both fairly new to vlogging and even though I have done a few videos on my You Tube channel I still feel like I have a lot to learn. You can find Ickle Pickles You Tube Channel here.

The idea of the Vlog Hop is quite simply to link up your favourite vlog that you've made within the last two weeks. It doesn't matter if you're new to vlogging or if you're a vlogging veteran anyone can link up.

You can vlog about fashion, parenting, beauty, pretty much whatever takes your fancy as long as it's not offensive or illegal!

This linky will be fortnightly.

Space Saving Bathroom Ideas

When you live in a ground floor maisonette space can be a bit of an issue, especially when you have small children wandering around.

Our home is all on one level and whilst this does have it's good points - the lack of stairs is great because we don't have to worry about our twins running up or even falling down them, but on the other hand space can be an issue.

When it comes to designing our home we have a lot of space saving storage options, but now that we have to decorate our bathroom we have a lot more to think about. We'll need some bathroom furniture to store towels, toiletries and other bits and bobs we need, but our bathroom is small. Very small!

Here are some space saving ideas for designing a bathroom.

Don't forget your pets this Christmas!

Christmas is a time for family and friends.

For eating good food, spending time with loved ones and gift giving and receiving, but will you remember your pet this Christmas?

Just because your furry friend is a four legged creature and uses their tongue to clean themselves, that doesn't mean they don't deserve some TLC and presents too!

More Than have created a pet present finder app to help you choose the perfect present for your pet.

You can choose from either a cat or dog, the category of present you'd like such as toy, treat, gear or fun and then set your budget.

Before our twins were born my husband and I had two cats.

We had them since they were kittens and I treated them like my babies! I spoilt them rotten! I spent lots of money on them buying toys, treats and scratching posts and showered them with affection!
