I Tried Reusable Sanitary Pads and they’re a Game Changer! #GIFTED

In an effort to lead a more eco-friendly lifestyle, I’ve been keen to try reusable sanitary pads for some time. It’s estimated that the average woman will use and throw away in excess of 10,000 sanitary pads in her menstrual lifetime. The sad thing is that many of these sanitary products end up in our rivers because they’re being flushed down the toilet. Just a few weeks ago, the below tweet popped up on my timeline and I was shocked for a number of reasons. The main question I had to ask is how can any grown women think that… [Read More]

Perfect Wedding Guest Etiquette

PAs we get older, one thing that starts to become more common is the arrival of wedding invitations.  Yes, it’s just a fact of life, people grow up, people get married, and you get invited to them. And with the average cost of one falling, we’re sure you’re about to get a few more invites through the door, as friends realise it isn’t as pricey as once thought. Now, everyone loves a wedding, but they can be very stressful for the bride and groom, both on the day and in the run-up. Organising a wedding can be hard. But there… [Read More]

Talking to children about money management #AD

Talking to children about money is an important part of being a parent. Our children will be seven years old this week, and I’ve recently found out that they’re already learning about money in school. I think is a great idea. Last week my husband and I attended parents evening, and our children’s teacher gave us an insight into what they were learning about. One of the things they’re being taught about is money. In particular being able to recognise the value of certain coins, and being able to count out how much change they would get if they bought… [Read More]

Review: GettingPersonal.co.uk #Gifted

Something that my husband and I are keen to embrace this year is a more zero waste life. We’re looking to reduce the amount of single use plastic that we use in addition to purchasing less plastic and using more eco-friendly products. So when GettingPersonal.co.uk contacted me about reviewing some of their products I opted for a personalised canvas shopping bag, a personalised tote bag, an engraved silver heart-shaped bookmark and a book called ‘101 Things To Do Instead Of Playing On Your Phone’. I chose the bags mainly so that I wouldn’t have to buy plastic bags when doing… [Read More]

Guest Post: Four Great Cities to Visit with Kids

Guest post I always think that travel enriches my daughter’s life. She learns so much from the different cultures and way of life of people from different countries. This is one reason why I travel so much with her. I want to open her eyes to different things around the world. After a trip somewhere, she comes home learning about different religions, money, languages, local customs and geography of cities. I would much rather take her out of school than have her sitting in a classroom learning about places from a book. My name is Vicky and I blog at www.misstillyandme.co.uk and www.tillystravellingtelegram.co.uk, and… [Read More]
