New Beauty and The Beast Product Range!

Beauty and the Beast Product Range

I absolutely love Beauty and the Beast, and I’m super excited to see the new film staring Emma Watson next month which is in UK cinemas on 17th March. Casting my mind back to my childhood I think Beauty and the Best was the first film I ever felt a connection with. I wanted to be Belle! Her passion for books and her kind nature was something that I truly admired and then, of course, there was her love for her father. So much so that she would sacrifice herself for his freedom. Watching her relationship with the Beast develop… [Read More]

Beauty and the Beast at the Everyman Theatre, Cardiff

Beauty and the Beast is my favourite Disney film. I used to watch it over and over and over again when I was younger. Belle was so headstrong, independent and that gold dress was beautiful! I wanted to be Belle! Now that I’m an adult, Beauty and the Beast still brings me back to those fond memories of watching the film when I was a little girl. I’ll never tire of watching it with my girls. There’s something very magical about Disney films, but Beauty and the Beast is my number one Disney film! When I heard that the Everyman… [Read More]

The truth and realities of being a parent

Sitting on the toilet with an audience that consists of three year twins I think to myself about how this lack of privacy has changed my life. I often have an audience nowadays when doing, well, pretty much everything! The other day I was getting dressed when I turned around and found that R and M had opened the curtains much to the delight of two elderly women and a teenage girl sat at the bus stop over the road from our house. Luckily I’d managed to pull my jeans up and had a bra on so I didn’t show… [Read More]

CBeebies Live! Justin and Friends: Mr Tumbles Circus Review

Justin Fletcher has to be one of the best children’s entertainers of our time. His range of characters such as Mr Tumble, Aunt Polly and Grandad Tumble are funny, engaging and I’m pretty sure every child loves them! I bought our tickets last year and although it’s been a long wait, it was definitely worth it! The show started with Arthur Sleep coming up on the screen with a ‘newsflash’ to let people know the show would start soon. The characters, Andy, Kat, Gem and Robert the Robot all came onto stage followed by Justin.  Whilst everyone is getting ready… [Read More]

How to survive and thrive with twins

Discovering that you’re having twins for the very first time can be quite a scary prospect for most expectant parents. For my husband and I though we knew as soon as we found out that we were pregnant that we would be having twins. This is because my we had a type of IVF known as ICSI. We were lucky that we had a total of nine embryos that fertilised successfully. After discussing our options we decided that we would freeze seven of those embryos and have two transferred back into me. I know it may sound a little conceited… [Read More]

The Bully and the Shrimp Book Review

As part of the Parragon Book Buddy Scheme we recently received our second book to review, The Bully and the Shrimp. We’ve really enjoyed reading this book. It’s all about a little boy called Noah Shrimpton, who happens to be small for his age. He moves to a new school and the class bully, Connor, starts picking on him. Noah has no friends to support him as he’s moved away from all his old friends. He’s too scared to tell anyone that he’s been bullied so he starts to use his journal to express himself. He doodles all sorts of… [Read More]

Competitive Parenting: Are you just as guilty?

Parenting has changed a lot over the last decade. Firm discipline has been replaced with gentle parenting and children are less likely to be found playing in the street and more likely to be found in front of a games console. This leads me to ask the question, has parenting become one big competition? There was a time before the internet existed in which communities would come together to help raise and look out for one another’s children. The sound of laughter and fun would fill the air! Children would play freely in the street and mothers would help each… [Read More]

Funny things our kids say and do

Like many other parents around the world I find it incredible the rate in which our twins develop – both physically and mentally. They’re no longer babies, but proper little girls. Little toddlers! When did that happen?! One of the things that always amazes me is some of the things that they say and do! I thought I’d share a few funnies with you!  You can buy everything in the shop right? Buy more wee from the shop – This was when R did a wee in the toilet and wanted to do another one, but she ran out of… [Read More]
