Review // Easter at EllieEllie

I can’t quite believe Easter is almost upon us! It’s really snuck up, and I’ve got so much I need to do; Easter bonnet making for Busby, Easter Egg Hunt planning, preparing the house for our guests coming to stay over the weekend (my best friend and her Husband are coming up to stay from Sussex, and I’m SO excited!!)… Thankfully the lovely folk at Ellie Ellie were on hand to help with some of our Easter prep, and sent us some gorgeous Easter-related goodies to  ...

What Mama Wore // Bo & Bel Teething Jewellery

Just before Christmas, the lovely Vicki of Bo&Bel got in touch and asked whether I’d be interested in choosing one of her gorgeous teething necklaces from her very beautiful range.

The decor is fun and vibrant, and wouldn’t be out of place in Brighton, so I felt at home  ...

Motherhood // Seven things nobody tells you about having two children

I’ve been the proud (and at times, not so proud) owner of two children for over four months now. It has been quite the experience so far… Having two children is hard! Not only is your heart split three ways (if you include the Husband), but you’re pulled in so many different directions – physically, mentally, to the ends of love – every second of every day… Your mind is in constant overdrive, leaving the house before sunset requires a military operation  ...
