Decorating with In The Night Garden wall stickers from Stickerscape

I’ve made no secret of the fact we live in a one bedroom flat. While most people would say this is not ideal, with a young baby, we have a longer life plan really. In around 18-24 months we will be moving in to a house, with a teeny tiny mortgage. Until then we are making the best of our situation and ensuring that our home is as tidy and welcoming as possible. Daisy shares our bedroom, of course, and has her own little corner. It really is a corner. Her cot in a corner. That’s it. However, the rest of our home is COVERED with her items. So why should this corner be any different?! We received a lovely delivery of In The Night Garden wall stickers from Stickerscape and decided to use them to brighten up Daisy’s bedroom area.

Learning to love my Mum body

When we first started trying to have a baby, many years ago now, what my body would look like was the least of my concerns. I was focused on having a baby. Then it took us 7 long years before we finally conceived Daisy. During that time I still didn’t worry about how I would look. Then during my pregnancy I would regularly think that my body wasn’t great before I got pregnant so I just wasn’t worried. Then I started to lose weight, around 2 stone while pregnant, and still I didn’t think that my Mum body would be any different. I was wrong.

Daisy is 16 months old

Here we go again. Another blinking month has gone by in a flash. Unreal! Anyway, here I am, documenting what Daisy has been up to in the past month… When I finally sit down to write this I always find myself feeling a little stumped because I haven’t prepared and it is always late at night when I finally cobble this together. I love having these posts to look back on so here is what Daisy has been up to now she is 16 months old.

Degustabox July 2017 box – Find out what’s inside!

I love enjoy receiving the Degustabox each month! Every month, around the 21st, a nice box of goodies arrives for me. I look forward to seeing what is inside the box. I also love the surprise of not knowing what products will be waiting when I open the box. Most months I really love the contents of the box, although occasionally there are a few products I don’t like. This month I was home to receive my box on the day that it was launched. Yay! I have the Degustabox July 2017 box to review and there WILL be spoilers in this post!

Starting a new skincare routine

My skin has been the bane of my life for years now. Firstly, I suffer from psoriasis. Since being pregnant with Daisy it has only affected my left foot (a large patch) and my elbows a little. Still, despite it being better than it has in years I’m still quite self conscious. It seems to flare up out of nowhere and before I know it people are asking ‘what is wrong with your foot?’ over and over. Anyway, I’ve tried a whole host of products for that, and I’m going to try something new in August! Meanwhile I’m more worried about the skin on my face – this is why I’m starting a new skincare routine.
