WHAT THE LITTLES WORE IN DUBROVNIK


Our littles aren't particularly spoilt, they want for nothing and their grandparents and great grandparents like to treat them regularly but with Brad and I we don't tend to spoil them but one thing we enjoy doing (I enjoy doing) is shopping for nice clothes for them. I tend to spend a lot of money on their clothing and certainly am envious of their wardrobes. most of their clothing comes from Next, Zara and river island but occasionally I pick up some gems in Primark, independent companies and supermarkets. 

I get a lot of messages about where the kids clothes come from and they are usually tagged on Instagram but sometimes its nice to put it into a post.
If the items are Primark I cannot add any links due to the fact they don't have an online store.

RAINY DAY BAKING DAY


Some days there is nothing better than making some cakes. Lucas is obsessed with the garden as you can imagine, the kid is outside ALL THE TIME at school, so he wanted to bake some garden cakes. We made a chocolate cupcake mix to start with and Lucas was so happy and loved the fact his baking outfit matched his bears.

Lucas loves role play, dressing up and playing adult and sometimes we focus so much on exploring and our adventures that we forget to do the little things at home like crafting and baking.

DUBROVNIK - CROATIA | TRAVEL DIARY WITH TWO UNDER FOUR (PART ONE)



Brad and I have been together six and a half years and for the first nearly two years we spent pretty skint and just worked our butts off to afford to attend two years in a row of Bestival and that was really it. Then for the next three years we spent basically pregnant or with a tiny baby and a very kind trip to Disneyland Paris thanks to my lovely Mum and step-Dad. We then had a under a year of wedding planning with a tiny baby and we ended 2017 with our wedding and our honeymoon to Disneyland paris again. 
Thats when I realised that actually upon returning to work at the end of the December and bringing in an extra income we would do more with our lives and Brad was just as happy to jump on board that idea train. 

We could be learning to drive or getting a bigger property but in January we decided that actually that will always be there as an option so why not treat ourselves to some travelling this year, so that's exactly what we did. I booked Edinburgh for my birthday and Croatia for Brad's and it was the best decision, ever. The kids had the best time ever and now I want to make sure that whatever foundations are laid for the path our life may take that holidays are always going to be an option, even if we're left eating beans on toast for a month.

A MONTH OFF BLOGGING TO RE-GAIN FOCUS


I haven't posted a blog post since April 4th and it's the longest i've gone in a long time but something I realised I needed to do for myself. I haven't been feeling myself for the past month and I needed some time away to regenerate really and to regain my focus.

A DIFFERENT WAY TO TRAVEL TO SCOTLAND | CALEDONIAN SLEEPER


I usually travel to my destinations via bus, train or flights. Occasionally a boat but that's been a very long time. We don't drive so public transport is something we rely on. When planning our trip to Edinburgh I was very interested in travelling via to Caledonian sleeper. Mel and Sara-Jayne travelled via the sleeper to our Inverness bloggers retreat and loved it and I thought it would be a really fun way to travel. It reminded me of the polar express and all I wanted to do was ask for hot chocolate and sing about Christmas. What I found most wonderful was that we departed around midnight on March 8th (my birthday) and woke up at 6am for breakfast and we were in Scotland. 

I THINK WE'VE LOST SPRING? | WHAT MY KIDS WORE


I can't believe that we're here in March and we're surrounded by snow again! It's absolutely ridiculous really and now that i've got some snow pictures, made memories with the kids in the snow, i'm a little bit bored of it all now. I want Spring to arrive, I want to take photos of my children in the flowers and in spring clothes, I want to start spring photoshoots and right now it's just too cold and the flowers aren't even growing. I haven't even seen any daffodils yet - except the ones in Tesco.
