A few days ago I posted about how I was making a Christmas Book Advent Calendar for Finlay this year. Last year we had bought him a Toy advent calendar to go alongside his chocolate one. This year however I wanted something a little bit different. Actually I decided early on in the year and began my planning early. Now planning and oragnising are not the same thing as I had totally forgot what books I had already bought and also how many I needed. So I have ended up with 5 books the same and 5 too many! Not so great for me, but excellent for you. I have decided to run a little giveaway for you with these books as the prize.
They will make a lovely little present on xmas day. Otherwise you could pop them in your Xmas eve Box, or have a mini Book advent counting down the last five days until xmas.… Read More
Winter is that time of year when germs are rife. Catching a cold is almost as certain as rain on a warm summers day! Children are especially vulnerable. Especially during the new terms if they attend School or Nursery. That’s where BioCare come in. BioCare suggest the single most important thing you can do to support your immunity this winter is to take a daily probiotic.
With almost 30 years expertise in developing professional nutritional supplements, BioCare has perfected their Probiotic range that helps to support our immune systems and help reduce the number of infections we catch. Surprisingly, most of our immune system is found in our gut. Probiotics help to keep the immune system active by keeping the gut bacteria on low level alert. Therefore supporting its function.

Baltic Amber strung into jewellery has been long been hailed by many mums as a way to soothe babies through teething. Those who use Amber beads, swear by them, but there are also many that are sceptical of the healing properties they are supposed to possess. Then, there are also the safety concerns of babies wearing jewellery.
As Emmie is showing more and more signs of teething, I have begun once again to think how I can help soothe her sore gums. Teething gels are having little effect and although she doesn’t seem too bad with her symptoms, her drooling and mouth full of fist tell me she is feeling it! Finlay was never too bad with his teething and we sporadically used Amber beads, but I wanted to dig deeper to see if it could be the answer for Emmie.
So what’s the story behind Baltic Amber?
Amber has been used for centuries and was once thought to hold magical powers protecting the wearer from evil spirits and diseases.… Read More
Fairy Gardens, magical little oasis right in our backyards. Did you know that fairy Gardens can be dated right back to 1893? Created to lure fairies in to your garden and bring with them good luck for your home! How magical! Who believes in fairies? Put your hand up, I do! I do! I’m a big believer in magic! As well as the chance of luring little fairies into your garden creating a fairy garden is also a great way to ignite your child’s imagination, 2 birds 1 stone!!
I was so excited when Gardens2you provided Finlay with his very own Fairy garden kit to review. Together we want to help break the mould, fairies don’t just have to be for girls and their gardens definitely don’t have to be pink and fluffy! Finlay has thoroughly enjoyed setting up his fairy garden. It is by no means finished, but that’s what I love.… Read More
I have to admit I am a bit of a sucker for a good bib and Zippy do a good bib! I remember using Zippy Bibs when Finlay was a baby and was always impressed by their quality. So I was very excited when Nicole, the founder got in contact and asked if I wanted to review some bibs. I didn’t hesitate. They arrived last week and Emmie has spent the last few days drolling them through their paces.
Zippy was founded 5 years ago by Nicole, a mother herself who wanted to make useful baby products for mums designed by mums. Today Zippy sell a number of different types of bibs, clothing, muslins, swaddles and blankets. Zippy products are in fact so useful and well designed, they have won a number of awards!
Zippy bibs come in a huge variety of designs for boys, girls and unisex.… Read More
