OUTDOOR CINEMA FUN WITH KIDS!


The other day a email arrived into my inbox inviting us to reserve tickets to West Quay's outdoor cinema. We jumped at the chance at taking the kids to see Finding Dory on the final night. Now i'll make it clear right now that we were gifted free tickets for the showing but we paid for everything else and there was no obligation to write this post. We had such a great time that I just had to write about it.
Now, as parents it wasn't plain sailing and easy at all. Brad missed the first half of the film and I missed the second half due to an overtired, teething little miss but that didn't take away from the experience.

USING TV TIME AS A WORK-FROM-HOME MUM


Being a Mum is hard, super, duper hard. I am a work-from-home Mum and struggle to find the balance between parenting and working as I do it under the same roof at the same time.
Some times I have deadlines to meet and Brad is at work so sometimes I use TV to parent my eldest whilst the youngest naps. I am not afraid to admit that and stand by that completely - It is okay to let your TV parent your kids sometimes.

Now we're in the summer holidays and there is no childcare. There's two kids running around my feet all day everyday and 4 out of 3 days a week i'm dealing with the kids solo from wake up to bedtime, so forgive me for using kids TV channels to get my work done. I have numerous photographs from shoots to edit, blog posts to write, videos to edit, ect... it can be super full on some weeks so during Iris' morning nap I go full force on getting things done. This means that during her afternoon nap that I get to spend some 1:1 time with Lucas.

GRACO BABY BOOTCAMP EVENT


Last week we headed to the Graco event and it was so much fun. I took my hubby-to-be to work and it really nice to show him what I do for a "job". What I do when I go to work and see how much the kids love attending events.

Going to events is something I really enjoy. They're great for networking, meeting new people and finding new people to follow too. With blogging you feel like you know someone - You feel like they're already your friends with them. Blogging events mean you finally get to put a face to a name and a name to an instagram/blog name too.

SOLO BEDTIME ROUTINE | MY LITTLEST TIPS #1


So, this is the first post in a new "series" I am starting on my blog. It's about all thing Mama, baby and toddler - at the moment. Over the past three years i've learnt what works for us and what I love and what the kids love too. 
Iris is 9 months old currently and our second baby and our eldest is 3 year old Lucas. They've both grown so much and i'm still learning everyday what it's like to be a Mum and what products are worth the money and what products aren't - This is when 'My Littlest Tips' was born.

TAKE YOUR HUBBY-TO-BE TO WORK DAY & MEETING GI FLETCHER


Becoming a Mama blogger is something I love a lot. It has given me the confidence to work-from-home and to do what I love. I absolutely adore what I do and it's given me so many fun memories and I've had some amazing opportunities from it.
On Thursday we were invited to London for an event and ended up at two. We had so much fun and took Lucas around London to see the sights.

We arrived at 9am and headed to covent garden and were devastated to find the Moomin shop was closed. Lucas really wanted to go so it's somewhere we'll take him back to see at a later date.
Our first stop was the Graco event which I'll be writing a separate blog post for and then we headed in an uber over to Chelsea.

BECOMING MRS WALTERS COCKTAIL PARTY!



 Something I've been wanting to include on my blog for a while is wedding bits and bobs. I want to include more lifestyle posts here on my blog and with my wedding very close now I am very excited.
On Friday night it was my hen do and as a huge cocktail lover I couldn't wait to host my own little cocktail party at home before heading out into the city centre. 

We purchased numerous decor bits beforehand and my favourite were the balloons from Ginger Ray and Banter Cards. The photo props were Poundland and the temporary tattoos were from Ginger Ray too.
