GUEST POST: Tricks to help you teach your child healthy eating habits

Even if we started them early, it can be tricky to get our kids to eat healthy. Kid food isn’t generally designed to be healthy — it’s designed to be tasty. Tasty treats are great, but when they sacrifice nutrition for flavor, they end up being empty calories. How can you help teach your kids healthy eating habits, when kid-friendly foods are working against you? more “GUEST POST: Tricks to help you teach your child healthy eating habits”

Mum On Time, naturally – with Jord Wood Watches + BlackFriday Discount Giveaway

As a Mum who is never, and I mean NEVER, late, a watch has become something I feel lost without; an essential piece of my Mum kit. Two christmases ago I was gifted the ultimate in cool watches – an iWatch, but although it has it’s perks, a watch that buzzes, rings and runs out of battery every 12 hours has not always been practical. I’ve had my eye out for something a little more classic in a wrist watch for a while now, and something that speaks to my individual personality and taste. more “Mum On Time, naturally – with Jord Wood Watches + BlackFriday Discount Giveaway”

The benefits of sleep – Mums need sleep too

Mums have a magical solution to fix any type of issues, right? Well, if your kids think so, then you’re obviously doing a good job. But ‘perfection’ requires quite a huge amount of dedication, which can get immensely tiresome at the end of the day. What being a mother also requires is a lot of time, which, among many other things, usually leaves you with few hours of sleep. more “The benefits of sleep – Mums need sleep too”

Let it go – Living with childhood constipation

I’ve really debated in my mind whether to write this post about children and constipation – as, shock horror, it’s about poo. You know, that thing we all do, and no-one likes to talk about, hear about or think about. But, over the last few days I’ve realised that perhaps that’s part of the problem. more “Let it go – Living with childhood constipation”

Santa’s little helper – a christmas job

It’s been three years since I left work. Three years of wearing whatever I like, running to my own schedule, and being based at home.Blogging has however become my job of course, but it isn’t quite the same as a guaranteed income, a workplace that you head off to each day, seeking solace in conversations about stuff other than kids, and what’s going on ‘out there’. more “Santa’s little helper – a christmas job”

When you think about your home appliances, there is probably only one you could truly not live without.

Cue images of being knee deep in laundry by the end of day one, and up to your neck by day seven… more “DIY Washing Machine Service with Dr. Beckmann (REVIEW)”

#CoolMumClub LInky week 82

Hey hey #CoolMumClub! Hope you all had a fabulous half term – which for us here at HQ was a two weeker which seemed to last a lifetime. In the best possible of ways though; a much needed blog break, a 7 day insta-detox, a special little girls third birthday and an incredible four days in Disneyland Paris. In all honesty, I didn’t want it to end…

Step by step guide on how to be a cool grandparent

Have you ever caught yourself wondering what kind of grandparent perhaps you’ll be one day? I have always had this vision of being a bit of a crazy Nan. The one who wears bright loud clothes and makes her grandkids cringe by her raucous behaviour – refusing to grow old gracefully.
