Winter, with toddler twins, has been hard going. Last Summer, I had such fun with them. Light nights in the evening, trips to the park, picnics, ice cream, warm days out, or just pottering in the garden – made looking after two toddlers magical. Entertaining them in the sunshine was easy-peasy. And then Summer ended, and the dark nights hit us, and I felt as though all…

Having toddler twins, it’s fair to say that we have a lot of toys. In fact no – make that HEAPS of toys! And finding places to safely store them and keep them neat and tidy is hard. Especially as they are at an age where they still may eat things! and/or open and tip out everything. Plus our house just doesn’t have a great deal…

When you’ve got twins, they come as a pair. They’re always together, you take them everywhere – together. It’s hard to think of them as two different children. So when Hubby suggested that we split-them-up and do something separately this weekend, my first thought was “And do what?”…. Hubby took Harry off to see cars, have lunch and do a little shopping in Chester. Which…

I saw the article of Amanda Holden’s new HD Brows in the press, and I had envy. Thicker, fuller and shaped beautifully. WANT!

I’m not a huge fan of dressing my boy and girl twins, Harry and Lottie, in the same sort of clothes. I like them to look individual and have their own, unique clothing styles. However, when the boutique brand Lilly + Sid sent us some ‘matching’ clothing for the twins, I was totally hooked! They look adorable and so cute! And super stylish!

Something has happened to me since I became a parent. It’s to do with my eating habits. Since I’ve had the twins something has happened to me – food-wise. Because I no longer eat three meals a day, at regular times of the day. Like I did before. Pre kids – Hubby and I loved our food. We liked eating out, we would plan what…

Naively, when I started blogging I thought it was just a case of sitting down at the laptop, writing some text, and then adding any image to hand. However there is FAR MORE to it than that. One aspect that I completely overlooked when embarking upon blogging, was that of photography. And just how important good photographs are, in a blog post. It sounds really obvious when you…

As Valentines Day, and our Wedding Anniversary (a few days later) approaches, I’m thinking about being in love. Hubby and I have been together ten whole years. An entire decade of being together, as a couple. And in a few weeks, we will have been married for seven of those years. How quickly does time go?! And…how do we manage to stay so in love…

I am always on the lookout for new pieces for my home. Special pieces, that are unique and different. Bespoke. That’s why I am so excited to have found Hannah Brown Interiors on the internet recently, as I just love her work. All the products are handmade – all the frames are bespoke.
