Tips For Fashion Bloggers

Fashion is one of the most popular blogging niches around today for female writers. The industry is huge, and so there is always lots of news to cover. There are thousands of fashion shows around the world each year. So, people who create sites focusing on that subject have a wealth of potential content at their fingertips. However, many of them don’t make the best use of their opportunities. The tips on this page can apply to everyone in the blogging world. Still, I’m going to focus on fashion for the purpose of this post because it’s something that’s always… [Read More]

ICE-Watch Review & Giveaway

I think that one of the best fashion accessories around has to be a good looking watch. Choosing the right one can really make an outfit complete. When ICE-Watch asked me if I’d like to review one of theirs, I chose the ICE loulou watch in rose gold. Delivered in a black ICE-Watch box, it’s very well protected during transit. The white case that surrounds the watch helps to protect it and is great to keep it in when not being worn. This watch is available for £95 (price correct at time of publication) and comes in 10 different colours. It’s also… [Read More]

Children can’t walk to school alone any more. What world do we live in?

I find it such a sad state of affairs that the world we live in appears to be restricting our children more than ever before. Last week I read an article online about our local area which stated that a ‘suspicious man in a car’ had been seen driving around two local schools. The police suspected a possible ‘child snatching plan’ and all schools in the area urged parents to make arrangements for their children to be picked up from school, instead of allowing them to walk home alone. Of course, my girls are only five, so they’re nowhere near… [Read More]

A Mumma’s Guide Getting The Kids To Spend More Time Outside 

As a mum, you want what’s best for your kids, which is why you worry about them not spending enough time outside. Do they lack vitamin D? Are they getting enough exercise? Are they addicted to technology? These are all worries that a lot of mums have, so if you’re worrying about these things or anything else to do with your kids spending time outside, don’t worry because you are not alone – we all worry about our kids. Of course, in days gone by – like when we were kids – children spent a lot of time outdoors. We… [Read More]

Get The Kids Excited About Cooking

Image Source Starting kids on a path of healthy eating helps to guarantee their habits stick as they enter adulthood. It’s one way that we, as parents, can give our children a great start in life. Encouraging them to get involved with food, cooking, and flavours teaches them good habits, gives them knowledge about nutrition, but also gives them skills that they can take into adulthood. But how do you get kids who might be a bit fussy or uninterested more involved with what they eat? It sounds like an impossible task, doesn’t it? Well, fear not. Here are a… [Read More]

…and then I was 30

Holy poop. How on earth am I already 30 years old? I feel like the last 10 years have just gone by in a hazy blur. One minute I’m dancing at prom, the next I’ve got an office job, two kids and a husband. Seriously, it’s actually kind of freaky. I don’t remember much from my childhood aside from the odd memory now and again. They’re pretty random memories and often quite hazy. Like the time I squashed marshmallows up my grandads t-shirt. He was so mad! Understandably so, as I stood watching him trying to pick bits of marshmallow… [Read More]

Join the NSPCC and take on Messathon: the messtastic obstacle course! (Discount code included)
