How I Honestly Feel about Turning 25 { Happy Birthday}

Today is my birthday, although it doesn’t feel like it. I’m not sure what it should feel like, but I do remember a time when it felt like more than just another day. We don’t celebrate birthdays like we used to. In fact, we don’t celebrate them at all anymore. Which is such a shame, we need to work on that. But it’s made me wonder how I feel about turning a quarter of a century. I mean, I’m 25 years old ...

What Makes a Terrible Mum {I’m Sure it’s This}

It’s not often that I feel like a terrible mum. Usually I feel like I have my stuff together, I may stress and shout occasionally. But that’s part and parcel of having two toddlers, things get tough and we all lose our temper. Then just like that it’s over and we’re all making jigsaw puzzles together. Today was different. Today I felt the same as I did when I first became a mum. As if I was losing control of my ...

Is it too Soon to put the Christmas Tree up? Flawless Friday

I’m going to change how I write my weekly Flawless Friday post. I was finding the bullet points a little hard to stick to. I quite to to ramble and go off on a tangent wen I discuss our week. So instead of bullet pointing the good events of our week I’m just going to expand on a certain event that’s made us happy, whether it be an out of this world experience or a fairly ordinary moment. Because if I’m honest, ...

Christmas Bucket List {Festive Family Ideas}

My friend and I were talking the other day about how much we love Christmas. Not just Christmas, but the days leading up to it. From autumn onwards we pull on our winter boots and go for long walks through beautiful crunchy leaves. Plus we get to dress the kids in the cutest hat and scarf sets. The build up probably beats theΒ day itself, Christmas certainly is it’s own season and expands much further than just one day. Β There are so ...

Books For Three Different Kids { Christmas Presents }

I recently received a surprise parcel from Puffin Books. It was a surprise because I didn’t know which books were going to be included in the package. I knew they were on their way and I was very excited to open the package. There was a chance we’d receive the Zoella book, which would have been so cool. But unfortunately I’m not a teenager and I don’t know any that would appreciate her book. I ended up being ...

Black Friday and Cyber Monday Sale Issues

Last week My dad, the kids and I went to Lakeside shopping center to do a little Christmas shopping. When we arrived I noticed sale banners everywhere. On every door and window, hanging from every wall. Up to SEVENTY percent off in some shops. My heart started to race and I left my dad behind me with the kids in a cloud of dust. I had no idea that Black Friday lasts all week. It’s possible Black Friweek suits the event better. Whenever ...

My Brother and Sister Story in November 2016

Sometimes I go to bed in the evening, peek in on the kids and think wow, two kids are a lot of children. A family of four seems to be the average size of most families and a family of four is what we are. It fits for us but sometimes having two children can weaken a strong person. This month they’ve been pushing boundaries, being a little (and a lot) difficult but they’ve also been absolutely wonderful. They’re at the ages ...

Random Questions Tag {Vlog}

I’ve missed the last few months of Vlogstars few a variety of reasons. We’ve been busy, I’ve always been concerned with editing the video and filming it so it looks appealing and I’ve been suffering with terrible acne. This month I thought ‘oh, what the hell’. I filmed it on my phone, I didn’t edit it at all and I still have a few disgusting spots on my face. Plus I filmed it on my sofa. Proper ...
