Living Arrows 4/52 – 2017

I’m really looking forward to writing these posts every week! It gives my little family the perfect excuse to find something wonderful to do each week. Whether it is a walk in the park, a trip to the zoo or just a soft play experience. Having a purpose to take more nice photographs of my daughter is absolutely lovely and I’m really enjoying it. Living Arrows 4/52 is now live!

Living Arrows is a linky from the lovely Donna from What The Redhead Said that you can find here. Parents are encouraged to link up weekly to share photos of their child or children from the past week. It is a great way to reflect on what little ones have been up to. Also, other people love to see cute photos!

Yours voucher codes – save money on clothes

I’m known online, by some, for my money making and money saving efforts. Looking after my money is important to me. Not only do I strive to make more money each and every year but I also want to save more money too. Being savvy is important to me, mostly, and I like to get myself a discount wherever I can. One way that I like to save money is by looking for voucher codes online. For example, if I wanted to shop at Yours then I would look for ‘Yours voucher codes’ online. Having a dedicated website that provides voucher codes is a great way to save time and still save money in the process.

Random acts of kindness for 2017

This year I’m trying out something a little different. I’m in a really fortunate position in my life. I get to work from home, making money online. I get to spend time with my daughter every single day. We don’t have to rely on childcare. I’m able to visit my Mum anytime I want. In general I feel really blessed with my life. I almost died last year, and a couple of times before that in previous years, and it has taught me that you shouldn’t sweat the small stuff, well – not much! To celebrate this I am going to be spending 2017 carrying out lots of random acts of kindness.

Glassware wishlist with House of Fraser

My kitchen is my favourite room in my house. Well, I say room but really we have an open plan kitchen and living room. My kitchen is pretty large considering this and I have no less than 11 huge cupboards. I love to cram my cupboards full of gadgets and beautiful items. Every year or two I have to have a clear out, to make way for new gorgeous items and remove ones that I don’t use. Also, we have a wine storage area that we use for various spirits – and rarely wine. Glassware makes a nice drink feel a little more special so today I’m sharing my glassware wishlist with you.

Daisy is ten months old – another month has passed!

I say this time and time again I know but wow – another month! Daisy has already been here for almost a year and I can hardly believe it sometimes. My tiny baby has been replaced with a little tornado. She whirls through the day creating mess, and noise, displacing objects but reminding me how grateful I am to be alive! Daisy is ten months old and this is what she has been up to for the past month:
