Willow has always been a very active baby, from just a few weeks old she was interested in toys and rattles and could hold and play with toys herself from much earlier than we expected. With our downstairs living space being open plan, she has quite the play area to herself and we have everything from sensory toys from Lamaze to books, a ball pit and one of her most favourite toys, her Fisher Price Roarin’ Rainforest Jumperoo.

Yesterday Willow turned 10 months old. What has now become a cliche with each new update but goes without saying; Willow has come on leaps and bounds over the past month and the changes are incredible. I feel like my little baby is turning into a little girl and her personality, mannerisms, behaviour and even looks, are so different over the past four weeks.

Towards the end of 2015, I was swept in the excited buzz that surrounds the online planning community, particularly those who use the Erin Condren Life Planners. On Boxing Day I took advantage of the sales and ordered my very first Erin Condren Life Planner and shared my thoughts back in January in my Erin Condren Life Planner First Impressions post. Since then I have become obsessed with my Life Planner, using it daily, so much so that I had to order another one ready for 2017!

November is well underway and Christmas is creeping closer and closer. It's time to start prepping, buying your Christmas gifts and planning the big day itself. When December 1st comes around, there's no better way to countdown to Christmas than with advent calendars. Chocolate, candles, beauty, you can find an advent calendar from your favourite brands and spend each day in the run up to Christmas Day being treated to something special.
Over the next week I'll be sharing my top picks of all the advent calendars covering food, lifestyle and beauty - today I'm sharing my top picks of the beauty advent calendars on offer this year. Be warned, there are some gorgeous spoilers ahead! Will you be opening up a beauty treat each day in December?

Over the summer Thaikhun introduced a new children's menu into their restaurants nationwide. With a Thaikhun tucked away into the corner of the revamped intu Victoria Shopping Centre, Nottingham, I was invited along with Willow to try out the new menu for ourselves and give our verdict on whether Thaikhun ticks the box as a family friendly restaurant.

Last Christmas as part of my Luxurious Christmas Gift Guide, I shared the Neal's Yard Remedies Beauty Sleep Organic Collection as a perfect Christmas gift, featuring three organic products which help to aid sleep whilst pampering face and body at the same time. Throughout 2016 I have been using the products included in this collection, and having recently finished the last drop of all three products, I wanted to share my thoughts with you on this rather wonderful selection of organic beauty.

When it comes to the big baby-buys, like car seats, pushchairs and highchairs, I really believe you should go with a brand that you trust and whose products you feel are safe for your baby, that will protect your baby when in use. Our babies safety is the most important thing to us and so when choosing which highchair to get for Willow, I knew Cosatto was the brand for us.
Our travel system, purchased excitedly before my 20 week scan, is a Cosatto Giggle 2 and still a fantastic investment that we are so happy we made. Cosatto has become our go-to brand for those essential baby-buys and the Cosatto Noodle Supa Highchair is just as brilliant and versatile as we hoped, ticking all of our boxes for the perfect highchair as we start our weaning journey.
