Avalina Leather

I’m sure it won’t come as a surprise to you that becoming a mum six years ago meant the end of little luxuries for me, these days it’s just the kids that get spoiled and if I’m lucky I get a nice gift on Mother’s Day and my birthday but that’s it. When I do need something I don’t go out on a whim, I [read more]

Remington i-Light Pro Face & Body

As much as I am excited about all the lovely summer dresses, pretty singlets and strappy sandals, I can’t say I am looking forward to all the necessary hair removal that comes with it.

I had only just moved to Australia and we were busy setting up house (as well as going through an expensive visa application) so we were a bit strapped for cash and planned our wedding on a tight budget.

Baby Batches

I don’t know about you but I always happily make room in our busy schedule to visit a brand new bundle of joy and get my dose of newborn baby cuddles. No matter how full our diary is those sweet snuggles are so much more valuable than anything else on the agenda. Of course you can not show up empty handed but don’t worry, you can save [read more]

JJ Cole Collections giveaway

A few days ago I wrote about the never ending (and rather messy) toilet breaks when out and about with a young family, something all parents will understand. Taking three little ones to a public toilet is quite the struggle so I was actually happy to have our youngest one still in nappies. No need to line up for a busy parenting room and use [read more]
