    A Room Fit For A Princess

    02/02/19 Within 2 days of moving into the Farmhouse Mr was whisked away on a 3 day business trip and us girls were left to fend for ourselves. What better way to keep busy then to rip us Miss K's bedroom carpet and get decorating!!I had already eyed up some shades of pink we liked so popped those on the walls so we could decide which would be best. Typically it was the most expensive of them, ...

    We have moved...

    This post has been a long time coming. Back in the Spring of 2017 we put our townhouse on the market. We'd bought it off plan in 2013 in the village I'd grown up in, we had family near by and  a great choice of schools and local amenities. It was our first real base when we moved back to England. We both adored our townhouse but over the following years we had outgrown it. The rooms were becom...

    Having photos printed with the FreePrints App

    A while back a friend of mine told me about the Free Prints app, she'd started using it to print out photos of her little boy, straight from her smartphone. I don't know about you but I am forever saying I'm going to print some of my photos out and never get round to it. This really sounded to good to miss!!The Free Prints app is free to download onto your smartphone. You can order upto 45 prin...

    Bakerdays Letterbox Cake | Dairy Free

    I meet up regularly with my two oldest school friends and it normally involves 'tea and cake' at one of our houses. All three of us have children now, ranging from 7 years old (My Miss K) to 10 weeks old so getting together can be a juggling act negotiating family life, working and our babies schedules! With a forthcoming birthday I jumped at the opportunity to try a Bakerdays Letterbox Cake....

    Shoes from JD Williams | AD

    I was asked before Easter if I'd like to take a look at the JD Williams website with the prospect of working with them on a little fashion blog post.

    Jessops Bury St Edmunds has a new look

    Last week I had an exciting trip to see the new updated look of my local Jessops store. The idea behind the revamp is to encourage us to set our photos free, did you know that we take around 1 trillion pictures every year! Mind boggling isn't and yet how many of those are actually printed? Probably a very small percentage! I for one have spent the last 7 years saying I'm going to print off Mi...

    Wingz - The Review

    Earlier last month I was sent a Wingz to test out and give you my honest opinion. Today I thought I'd sit down and give you the lowdown on this item of clothing.So what are 'Wingz' I hear you ask? Wingz is basically a sleeved undergarment that is designed with a low scooped front and back, meaning it can be worn with any style of neckline. It fits over the top of your bra, following the bra-l...

    Primark PS...Pro Blending Brushes | Review

    On a recent shopping spree in Primark I spotted these fabulous Oval shaped blending brushes. These reminded me of the Artis Oval Brushes that have been splatted all over social media in recent months. If you are unfamiliar with Artis then head over to Google and you'll see exactly what I mean. Their brushes are gorgeous! Not that I tried them, I simply can't justify the price when I already hav...

    Pancakes - How do you eat yours?

     The 28th February is Shrove Tuesday so I thought I'd do a little pancake post. We love pancakes in our house as I'm sure many of you do. Our favourite toppings are the simple lemon and sugar or the little ladies go-to topping of Nutella. I normally make little pancakes, approximately 5 inches across so we just pop some toppings straight on them and enjoy. My mum used to make us big pancakes...

    KISS 'Bring the Salon Home' Acrylic Nails*

    I was kindly sent the Salon Acrylic Nude French Nails to test and review last week and after testing them over the weekend I thought I'd pop back into my blog and let you know how it went. The KISS nails sets I received were the Real Short Length which are very close to my natural square-ish shape and length. And the Medium Lenght, which are an oval shape and have a manageable amount of length...

    Clearing out the bathroom cabinets | 2017

    The beginning of January I had a bit of an early spring clean. We've got a total of 3 bathrooms in our house (family bathroom, shower room & ensuite). All of these have cabinets stacked with products, some of which we use on a daily basis, other products are ones I've stashed away to use but they have been long since forgotten! Having a clean out has meant I rediscovered several half used ...

    Headlice Hell - Treatment and Prevention Tips

    For the last 2 years I have dreaded the day the 'Headlice letter' comes home. Just before Christmas we (the parents) were made aware by the dreaded letter, that Head Lice are doing the rounds in the Prep School. Kizzy being in Prep was now formally at risk of said Lice (it really is that dramatic!!) . Being a Hairdresser I'm fully aware that Head Lice (or Nits as they are also known) are att...

    LUSH | Valentines Edition 2017

    You can't beat having a little Lush in your life. I love them as well as Kizzy. Her favourite is bubble bath bars so when we were out shopping it seemed rude to not pop into the store and buy a couple. Kizzy was instantly drawn to these two; mainly due to the nature of them both, who can resist Unicorn horns and Ladybirds?By chance the two Kizzy chose are both from the Valentine's Limited Editi...
