I'm still here

With the girls back at school and nursery, We're finally back into a routine, after 7 weeks of no routine during the holidays.

Ava has settled right in to Primary 2, And Ivey and Indy are loving their morning nursery class, Instead of the afternoons they had last term.

Stu currently isn't working so i'm kinda enjoying the extra time we have together (Some days he drives me crazy, I'm so used to him not being at work during the day. I shouldn't complain, He makes me great cuppas.)

Here's what we've been up to according to Instagram recently.

We love throwing up the peace sign, Incase you didn't notice.
Indy is going through a "No photos" stage. I remember Ivey going through that stage and now she's the biggest poser ever!

Who doesn't love stripes?

I love stripes, If you've been to my house you would know this as soon as you step in the door, It's full of monochrome stripes.

If you're after a way to bring stripes into your home but don't know where to start, Here's a few ideas.

  • Large Storage Bags are great, We have one for laundry and one for the girls toys, They look great and hide everything perfectly. 

  • Striped bedding is a simple option that will keep the bedroom looking fresh.  

  • Vases are such a lovely addition to any home and make a nice little feature point. 

Hope you enjoyed my ideas, I'd love to know how you would mix stripes into your home?

What Ivey Wore // P9

Mini Rodini A/W Drop one, So much to swoon over and I had to stop myself buying the lot, I'm so excited to see the rest of the collection.

We settled on this on this Weightlifter dress. It arrived the next day, Little bigger than last season I found, but looks lovely oversized. Ivey just loves it and calls it her "Muscle man dress".

Mini Rodini is my favourite kiddy brand, I love their all over prints, Thick organic cotton and they wash like a dream!
What is your favourite brand for your little ones?

Rocket and Rose

 A while ago we were asked to be brand reps for an amazing company called Rocket and Rose. I was over the moon. I had purchased from Gemma before, I just adore her shop and clothes for kiddies.

She sent us the most beautiful slogan tshirts for the girls to model! Such lovely colours and great quality tees.

Have a look at the Rocket and Rose website for some new items for your little ones or to gift. You won't be disappointed.

First of all, Sorry for not updating my blog (or any social media for that matter.)
My head has been all over the place as we've been busy planning for our new arrival.

Meet Abel

Abel is a male pedigree Pomeranian, 8 weeks old and he is perfect in every way.

Stuart and I have been toying with getting a dog for years, We wanted to wait until the girls were at a good age and then research dog breeds and decide on the best one for our lifestyle. A Pomeranian ticked all the boxes for us.
After spending weeks looking at photos of Poms, I knew I wanted a sable one, Dark in colour.
As soon as we seen the litter, We picked him right away. He was the most friendly and so full of energy. We didn't hesitate putting down a deposit on him, then went right out shopping to prepare for our new pup who was arriving in a few days time.

Ivey meeting her new puppy 

Abel has settled in perfectly, and the girls just adore him!!
Be prepared for more puppy spam over the next few days.

Birthday Ideas // Etsy

With Ava's birthday fast approaching, Well, October, But with this year already flying through, I wanted to make sure I'm well prepared.

It's her first birthday party with all her friends from school and with all my friends and their kiddies on the list too, We're looking at about 30 children. I figured if I prepare everything now, I'll have more time to space my money out too, Because it gets really expensive once you start making up goody bags, Booking entertainers and going crazy with decor and balloons.

I've got my eye on a few things from Etsy, I love Etsy, I can always find just what i'm looking for pretty great prices too.

She has two beautiful dogs, One was at his grans house so we only seen Harry, A gorgeous bulldog.

My girls absolutely adored him and have no stopped asking for a doggy of our own since. pleaseeeee Stu?
He's such a big softy and loved attention.

Thank you, Kirsty for having us over, and a big thanks to Harry who tired my girls out, They fell asleep as soon as they hit their pillows (that never happens).

First Year of School

I still can't believe Ava has finished her first year of school.
She's learnt so much and has changed so much, She's so bright and brightens up everyone's day.
Her report card made me the proudest Mama.

I'm still not sure i'm ready for her going into Primary 2, That's just too much.
Can my girls just slow down on the growing up please?
