Item of the day: Penguin cloth book from Kidly

We're at that stage where a lot of people who had babies around the same time as me are now pregnant with the next, so I'll be doing some new baby shopping soon. I'm totally always going to be that parent/aunt/friend who buys books and this soft cloth penguin book from Kidly is gorgeous -… Continue reading Item of the day: Penguin cloth book from Kidly

Christmas Gift Guide 2016: With love from Cornwall

You can't call yourself a Cornish geek and not feature a gift guide with Cornish goodies now, can you?! I've mentioned before that I love shopping independent and local where possible, so here's a selection of gifts from some of my favourite Cornish brands/creators. Teacup and tea plate by Isobel Higley Ceramics, Etsy, £24.95 and… Continue reading Christmas Gift Guide 2016: With love from Cornwall

Sunday Snapshot #57

Earlier this week we took Jenson back to Paradise Park - partly because he's big enough to appreciate the animals now, partly to try out the soft play (which we didn't do in the end because he was tired and teething) but mainly because I love feeding the goats! Jenson wasn't even that into them… Continue reading Sunday Snapshot #57

Wish list: M&S kids

We're lucky that Jenson is now in that fun clothing age range where he can wear both baby and boys clothes.

Best of the Paperchase sale

Ahhh, I love Paperchase. I'm signed up to their Treat Me loyalty card and they sent me a little £5 off voucher for my birthday. The problem was, I couldn't use it in store in time because my local is so far away and it wasn't worth using online at the time because of the… Continue reading Best of the Paperchase sale

Lifestyle

Item of the day: Penguin hottie from Marks and Spencer

I go to bed a good hour or two before Luke and I hate getting into a cold bed in the winter. In the summer I love cold sheets but when I've been sat in a nice, toasty office and get into an empty, freezing bed, it makes me all kinds of sad. I love… Continue reading Item of the day: Penguin hottie from Marks and Spencer
