Father’s Day Gift Guide 2019 (AD – Gifted)

We were gifted the featured items in exchange for coverage. Father’s Day is coming! In the UK Father’s Day 2019 falls on Sunday 16th June. As this is just a few weeks after Thomas’ Birthday AND our Wedding Anniversary I’m planning ahead – as I don’t want to be caught out without a gift. My lovely husband always makes sure that Mother’s Day is a lovely event in our home. He will spend the day treating me well, completing all the household jobs and dealing with most of the parenting. I really look forward to this day, as I feel so privileged to be a mother to Daisy, and I can’t believe Daisy is 3! Anyway, today I’ve got a selection of lovely items that I have hand-picked as I think each and every one of them is a fantastic gift idea for Father’s Day!

My new air purifier is helping me sleep better

I’ve got a number of health problems and as such I can struggle with my sleep at night. Being a parent to a three-year-old means I need my sleep. Really need it! I work from home full-time too. I can’t afford to be tired throughout the day as I have clients to complete work for and a home to run too. As I have a number of health problems my GP is always willing to prescribe sleeping pills, however, I thought I would try some alternative methods. I don’t want to spend my nights medicated in case my daughter needs me so I started with trying out an air purifier. I’ve now been using it for several years so decided to give this post a bit of an update!

Will an air purifier help with snoring? Will an air purifier help me sleep?

My Valentine’s Day Gift Guide for 2019 (AD – Gifted)

The products featured in this guide were gifted by brands in exchange for this feature. Valentine’s Day isn’t something that we go mad on, to be honest. We no longer go out for lavish meals, and we rarely even cook a fancy meal to mark the day! However, as busy parents, working on buying a house and running our family, we like having a special day to make an effort. This year I’ve decided that Valentine’s Day is going to be about more than just treating Thomas, my lovely husband, and will also be about treating myself! I’m a hard worker and I deserve some nice treats too! Here is my Valentine’s Day Gift Guide for 2019.
