This time we decided to take our brand new teepee down to the beach with us for some shade and a cute little extra for Amelia when we are up in the beach hut. As a MyWeeTeePee Ambassador I’m going to be  ...

I absolutely love shopping for Amelia and have way to much fun putting together her outfits. That girl has more clothing than I do and most of it I would have in my own size! A particular brand favourite of mine is Joules, I love the style and quality of their clothes and find it really hard to resist not having it all but sometimes it can be  ...

Compton Acres – A Local Beauty

It is a beautiful spot with an Italian Villa, stunning gardens and a cafe and garden centre. I honestly can’t believe I’ve never been there before. It is a really beautiful place and was  ...

Summer Holiday Sleepovers

When the summer holidays from school come around, it can be hard for some children to keep up the friendships they had in term time. Sometimes, this is due to how far away they live from their closest pals, or maybe laziness and lack of communication. Over the six weeks or so that your little ones have no school day structure, why not try to  ...

A few weeks back we were invited to a really fun event with Robinsons to learn some more about water from the well known brand.

My Fairy Garden – Woodland Fairy Door Review

A few weeks ago Amelia was sent the Woodland Fairy Door from Interplay to test out and see what she thought. Amelia is really loving fairy’s at the moment as we’ve been on a few walks where you hunt for the fairy doors in the trees and she’s watched a couple of the Tinkerbell films which she’s really enjoyed. We were  ...

Summer Walks Before Bedtime

The countdown to bedtime is often one of the hardest parts of the day. Amelia is usually tired and at her most short tempered at this time of the day so we’ve taken advantage of the sunny evenings and gotten out for a dog walk. It does mean we have to get dinner going a little earlier but Amelia is out and enjoying herself rather than me  ...

Summer Dresses with Little Chickie

The clothing range is totally up my street with cute  ...

Amelia’s Firsts with Petits Filous

There is something so special about those first moments; whether it’s a first step, a first fall, a first walk or a first talk each of the firsts are things to be remembered. Firsts are so bitter-sweet they mark a time of triumph and happiness but also a hint of sadness as it’s a sign of babies/toddlers/children growing up and that  ...

Ringstead Bay; Saturday Adventures

Saturday started off super chilled with my Mum getting up with Amelia so that I could enjoy a massive 10;30am lie in! I am lucky Amelia tends to sleep until between 7-8am most mornings but it was such a treat to have a bit of extra sleep and not be awoken by a toddler and out of bed within seconds, so our morning was nice and slow and we  ...

Bathing Bunnies; For Super Cute Bath Time

Bath time is one of Amelia’s favourite times of the day, she loves the water, splashing about and would probably stay in the bath all night if she could. Getting out of the bath is not one of Amelia’s favourite times of the day so finding ways and little bribes to get her out is always something I’m looking for. The items  ...
