Our plans for Easter

Life is a little bit up in the air at the moment, isn’t it?! All of the plans that we had for the first half of this year have gone out the window! Right now we are just focusing on enjoying this time together at home, staying well and doing what we can to make everything a fun adventure for Daisy. At the moment Daisy believes that she is home from school by choice, and seems very content just spending lots of time with Thomas and I. I’m really grateful for this, as it certainly helps us keep home a calm, relaxed and happy space the best we can during these worrying times. Today I want to share with you our plans for a relaxed family Easter. Items that were gifted to me for a mention within this feature will be clearly marked with a #.

Valentine’s Day Gift Guide (AD – Gifted) [2020]

The products featured in this guide were gifted by brands in exchange for this feature. Valentine’s Day is rolling around and now we live in our home, without a noisy neighbour banging underneath us all the time, life is feeling really good. Because of this, I want to make Valentine’s Day a whole special day. We’re going to have an at-home date night, give each other a few small gifts and just make a special effort.

Some people say to me that you don’t need a special day to declare your love, which I agree with, but I do think my own marriage needs more date nights and effort, so it is the perfect excuse for us!  This year I’ve decided that Valentine’s Day is going to be about more than just treating Thomas, my lovely husband, much like last year, and I will also be about treating myself! I work hard and I deserve to look and feel nice on the day.

How to avoid overspending on your groceries

I’m something of a money lover making my money work as hard as I can. One area where I can always improve is not spending money so frequently and avoiding overspending on every day things. Recently I have been working harder to save money and make the most of the money that I earn. This has meant that we have more available cash for our life together without having to work more. I have lots of ways that I avoid overspending and I’m going to share a few with you today.

Christmas gifts for children (AD)

AD. We were gifted the items within this gift guide in exchange for coverage. Our daughter Daisy is 3, soon to be 4, and as such I’m quite the expert on toys for her age range now. Being an Auntie to 15 nieces and nephews means that over the years I’ve learned a thing or two about toys at Christmas time. I’ve gathered together some of my favourite Christmas gifts for children from this year for this gift guide. Hopefully you’ll find some inspiration for the little ones in your family.
