Getting to Know Me

A little while ago, Maz from Caffeine and Fairydust (one of my all time favourite people and blogs), tagged me in this chain of “getting to know me” posts. I love reading these and apparently I love writing them too. Since there are more of you now than there were when I started this journey, maybe a little insight into who I am might provide some context (or not). Either way, here’s to you getting to know me :)

All I Want for Christmas is the perfect gift for my toddler

When it comes to Christmas, I was born to be a mom. I am ALL about the magic and excitement and the decorating and finding the perfect gift for my toddler. My Christmas list for Charly is literally endless, I add to it every day; every time I see anything that I think she might love, I tend to buy it. I’m the worst, I know, and this is why I am always broke; but I cannot resist seeing her light up over a gift. Deciding what to put on this particular list for all of you was SO hard, I hate leaving things out! These are some of my very favourites though, so here we go… All I want for Christmas is the perfect gift for my toddler!

All the decorations

All I want for Christmas is… to decorate!

Merrrrrrry Christmas! Well, not quite, but I’m starting the Christmas spirit extra early this year to help you get ready for the season. I have been doing what I love best, searching the Interwebs for amazing people and brands that do what they do better than anybody else. And for the next two months, I will be introducing my favourite brands, products and services to you in my “All I want for Christmas is…” series, so you can get started on your Christmas lists. There is nothing that gets me in the mood for the season quite as strongly as gorgeous decorations; little touches that just make you smile. And so we begin with “All I want for Christmas is… To decorate!”

When breastfeeding sucks

I am still breastfeeding my 19 month old daughter. I never thought I would be, although I intended to give it my best try until she was 6 months old; I was just never as gung-ho on the whole breast is best movement as the usual toddler-breastfeeding mom. In fact, it always kind of creeped me to see a toddler breastfed before I had my own (I know I’m not meant to say that “out loud”).

5 Ways to keep warm using your toddler

This feels like the coldest winter we’ve ever had; but I’m pretty sure I say that every year. I actually love winter; I like having a legitimate reason to work in my pjs under piles of duvets and never leave the house. But omg the cold; not even blankets, heaters and hot water bottles are cutting it. But how can you use your toddler to keep warm this winter??

Living Online – Part 1 : Mobile Services

I’m a homebody; there’s no getting around it or denying it. I love entertaining and having visitors, so it’s not that I’m antisocial; I am just at my happiest in my own space. I look forward to the day, hopefully in the not too distant future, where my own space has more space, but I don’t seem to have the urge others have to get out or go stir crazy. [Read more…]
