WORKING ON WORKING FROM HOME


Working from home when you have little ones is never easy, it's constantly a battle over what needs your time more. Not between the boys and work clearly, as they always come first, but silly things like should I go and tidy all the lego away right now or wait and finish photographing these products? Your time is always torn and I think it's rare that those of us who do work from home, find ourselves spinning all the plates equally, I know I don't and it's more often than not that I'm dropping one. 2019 I want to be the year that I get better at it, I don't want to feel as though if I'm succeeding at one aspect in life then I'm failing at another, so I'm trying to work on little things that can help me iron out my work from home life.

How Do You Find The Perfect Home?



Getting to the point in your life where you're actually in a position to buy your own home is one of the most exciting things in the world. After all, in the modern era, the idea of being able to buy a home in the first place is something that a lot of people would consider to be a fantasy more than anything else. With rising house prices and stagnating wages, many of us grow up assuming that we'll never be able to buy a home at all, let alone the kind of home that we could really love. However, that's simply not the case and being able to make the right financial and personal choices to get the kind of home that you really want is entirely possible. Of course, you've then got to deal with a whole bunch of other questions that you might not have considered before that point. For one thing, you need to think about how you're going to find a home that you and your family are really going to love. After all, the last thing you want is to go through all of the stress if you're just going to end up moving again before too long. With that in mind, here are some things that you can do to ensure that you find the perfect home.

NOAH YOU ARE FIVE



My oh my, you're five. It's a little bit of a pinch me moment that I suddenly have a five year old, you've existed in our lives for five whole years and they've been the best years any Mum could ask for. This year was the first year you got a big party, we must have heard about it every single day from the moment we suggested it, the classic soft play party where the smell of sweaty feet and sausage rolls linger in the air but exactly the kind that a five year old wants. You had the best time and I'm so glad because you truly deserve it, you're growing up to be such a caring, sensitive little boy and I couldn't be prouder to be your Mummy.

Why You Should Invest in Designer Clothes for Your Children


Despite not talking about it too often on the blog, I have a great appreciation for fashion and beauty. While I’ve talked about it for myself on a few occasions, I’ve also cultivated a love for designer clothes for children. Some may believe that spending wads of cash on clothes your kids will quickly outgrow is crazy, but I think there are so many wonderful childrens’ clothes designers out there and so many designs to consider. But, of course, purchasing from a designer brand also means spending a little more money. So why do I still think it’s worth it?

LOOKING BACK ON 2018


Another typical blog post for the start of the year but it seems like the best way is to get them all over with in one week, plus I don't really want to be reflecting on the last year when we're already a solid month into this one. Last year was pretty incredible, it had highs and lows but overall it was probably one of my happiest to date, it would have felt as though I was doing myself a disservice by not reflecting on some of the most important aspects. The years don't always feel like they fly by but when I think that 2010 was almost a decade ago, I realise just how fleeting time is and the memories that seem set in stone now, will soon be forgotten so now is my time to document them.

WHAT I WANT TO ACHIEVE IN 2019


Let's get all the cliche over and done with from the off, can we believe it's 2019? I certainly can't, it feels like just moments ago we still had all the heavy snowfall, or the summer that didn't want to end, I can't quite believe that I'm sat here writing about 2019 already. But here we are and I'm obviously going to be doing the cliche thing to do by talking about everything I want to achieve blog and business wise during twenty nineteen. Last year was huge for Babies and Beauty and my first full year of self employment, I couldn't be happier with the things I managed to achieve and only hope that this year continues on the same level.
