Ideas for Toddler Food on the Move

Sometimes when you have a toddler it is inevitable that you will end up eating on the go. We recently went on holiday to Devon and with a 4-hour drive ahead of us, we decided the best thing to do was to leave just before lunch time. We wanted to arrive in the late afternoon…

Christmas Gift Ideas from the Prezzybox Jingle Mingle

It's no secret that since having my daughter my evenings have generally been spent in my pyjamas, ready to hit the hay from about 6pm. However now that her sleeping (and therefore mine) is a lot better, I've been starting to venture out a bit more, so when I was invited to the Prezzybox bloggers…

Review of the Hape Camper Van Walker

It’s never easy to decide what to buy for your little ones to help their development. There is so much available now that inevitably you will end up with some baby-related paraphernalia that is hardly touched or not even used at all. One of the things that has definitely helped Phoebe with her development is…

The new menu at the Hyatt Regency, Birmingham

If you’ve ever had the pleasure/misfortune* (*delete as you see fit) of working away from home for a large event such as a Conference, you’ll probably understand my next point a little too well. Essentially you see the inside of the conference venue and your hotel room before you peel yourself out of your shoes…

Enjoying family time outdoors with Anthisan

Phoebe really enjoys being outdoors and playing outside, which I think is lovely and something I want to embrace before she hits the age where TV and computer games are much more appealing! I've always worried though that my aversion to bugs and creepy crawlies (particularly spiders) will transfer onto Phoebe, and she'll grow up…

No-added sugar banana and blueberry muffins

When we started weaning Phoebe (over a year ago, where does it go?!) we felt quite strongly that we wanted to keep her sugar intake to a minimum. That's easier said than done when healthy and important food groups such as fruit and milk contain sugar, but we were keen to do our best to…

Review and Giveaway of Bakerdays letterbox cake

I love gifts that come through your letterbox. No more worrying about whether your parcel will delivered to the neighbours or shoved behind your wheelie bin, or how you will find the time to go and pick it up from the post office. So when I found out about bakerdays, a company which makes and distributes…

Why we love…The Collective Dairy Suckies yoghurts

Let’s face it, being a parent is hard. I’m sure we have all had moments where we question if we are doing a good job, wondering if we are doing the best for our children, and fretting about decisions we have made. Well that’s me a lot of the time. I’m the first to admit that…

Snack ideas for weaning babies

Weaning can be an *interesting* process. I personally found it a little confusing when I was trying to figure out how to transition Phoebe from milk to solid foods, as there is so much information out there. And there are lots of conflicting opinions. A friend recently told me that she attended a class where…

Review of The White Swan, Birmingham

The White Swan in Edgbaston is a very well-renowned establishment in these leafy suburbs of Birmingham. I've spent many a happy hour there either having a drink or two, or dining with friends and family. I last went there in the summer before my daughter had started solids - since then, we tend to stick…
