Lovely Things // Unisex New Baby Gift Guide

My best friend is about to bring her first baby into the world at any given moment. Eek! They haven’t found out the gender, so it’s even more exciting! I’m on tenterhooks with every text and cannot wait to have baby snuggles. It feels very strange to have her join the proverbial “club”. I’ve been a mother for almost five years now and, as one of the first in our peer group to have a baby, I had gotten used to being the only one to bring the children to  ...

Lovely Things // For The Little Ones by Plewsy

I simply cannot resist stationery. From notebooks, to cards, to divine wrapping paper, I just can’t help myself.

Well, you’re not alone, that’s for sure! But, at some point in the day, you probably unearth a pad full of meeting notes, or dip into your pen pot to find a biro to twirl around your fingers. The stationery we use at work is incredibly useful, but most of us have no idea about the stories that lay  ...

Review // Baby B Pregnancy Journal

I will always regret not writing a proper pregnancy journal when I was pregnant with Busby. I documented the end of the pregnancy on this blog, and I wrote a few posts about cravings etc, but I really wish I’d written it all down for her, so she could read it in the years to come. So, as you can imagine, I was incredibly happy when my Baby B Pregnancy Journal arrived, and I could start documenting everything about my pregnancy with Peppercorn. The Baby B Pregnancy Journal is ideal for  ...
