Erborian Bamboo Glow Review

*Features press samples

One thing I've struggled with in pregnancy is lack-lustre skin, with that 'glow' that everyone talks about deciding not to make an appearance this time around, instead relying on skincare and makeup to keep my skin looking healthy and happy. One product I've been using over the past few weeks is a new release from Erborian, the Bamboo Glow Dewy Effect Cream.

Willow is two and a half

Two and a half years, where has the time gone? It's crazy to think Willow is already two and a half, that her 3rd birthday is now edging closer or the fact that in a few short months she'll be a big sister.

Exploring Twycross Zoo

*Complimentary tickets provided

Is there anything more fun than spending the entire day exploring Twycross Zoo, a great place for families and children of all ages and a really fun day out for all the family. Like most toddlers, Willow adores animals and a lot of our day is spent reading about animals, playing with animal toys and watching programmes about animals, too (any David Attenborough fans?). With Willow now 2.5 years old, a trip to Twycross Zoo, which we're lucky to live quite local to, was the perfect way for her to learn more about animals, see them up close and personal and also learn a bit more about how we can protect endangered species.

Second Pregnancy First Trimester Experience

If you spotted my recent post, A Family of Four, you will know that our little family is growing, with baby number two due this November. We are so excited to be expecting another little one, now over the halfway mark with just a few short months to go until our baby arrives.

During my first pregnancy with Willow, I shared a weekly pregnancy post; this time around I have a few posts I want to share with you all, covering my birth plan after a previous emergency caesarean, my hopes and fears for our growing family and pregnancy essentials which have made this pregnancy easier. I'll also be delving into the more personal side of pregnancy, sharing my experience of a second pregnancy, how we're preparing Willow for sisterhood and how my second pregnancy has been compared to my first, kicking things off with my Second Pregnancy First Trimester Experience.

Daily Planners Are My Saviour

If you analysed my life, you'd see I'm not the most organised of people - I prefer to call my life organised chaos! - but there are a few things I do like to keep in order, such as ideas and features for the blog, family appointments and general family life. I'm now into my third year of using daily planners, something which has not only become a natural habit but something I really enjoy doing.

For me, using daily planners and diaries makes keeping my life that little bit more organised and easier, and I much prefer writing things down to using apps on my phone or web calendars. I like writing, I like using different pens and making things look a little bit fun with stickers (yes, even at my age!) and I like making my planners more personal to me. For me, using daily planners is an absolute saviour in keeping my organised chaos, well, organised!
