Save 10% at Hello Mama

Radiant skin, glossy hair and a beautiful compact baby bump? I don’t know about other expecting mamas but exhausted, uncomfortable and simply huge is a much better description for the way I am feeling right now.

Sleep and Snooze with VTech

It may have been a race against the clock but after many long, late nights Hip Daddy has finally completed the baby’s nursery, just in time!

ergoPouch giveaway

While Hip Daddy was exploring sunny Japan last week dressed in a short-sleeve t-shirt I tried my hand at (thankfully short-term!) solo-parenting at home where it was definitely far from warm and pleasant. I have discovered I have absolutely zero talent for lighting wood fires and am so relieved hubby is home again to keep us cosy and warm. The older kids are happy to [read more]

Now that I’ve passed the halfway mark of this pregnancy it all of a sudden feels like time is going quicker than I’d like, there is still so much to do! As you know we’re all about August-September birthdays here and this little bundle is going to fit right in so it will be a very busy season for me. I am trying to think [read more]
