Life is about to change drastically for me this much I know. This inevitable change has been making me feel like I need to get my life in order. One of the mains areas that was annoying me was my overcrowded and messy wardrobe.
With four weeks to go on Wednesday till my due date I’m really starting to get excited about meeting the toaty one. I’m wondering whether it’s going to be a boy or a girl I really have no idea either way. What colour of eyes will he or she have? What colour will his or her hair be and will it be straight like mine or wavy like Kev’s? None of these questions are really important though as the main thing I’m hoping for is a healthy happy baby. It’s not long now till we find out the answers to all these questions.
This Lush Ultraviolet Bubble Bar that has been helping me take some time to myself. Relaxing is quite difficult to do at the moment with Kev in plaster there is always something to do. Running a bath and soaking in bubbles that smell of parma violets makes me stop for a while and just do nothing. It’s bliss!
Spring has finally sprung in Scotland and it’s Easter next week. Easter mostly means lots of sugary treats for kids and adults as well. I’m not religous at all so I’ve never celebrated Easter as an adult and I don’t agree with giving kids lots of sugar and e-numbers. Instead I’ve compiled this little selection of spring bunny fun to celebrate the new season, the nights getting lighter and the temperature rising. Hoppy days.
If you live in the city centre in Edinburgh it’s more than likely you live in a tenement flat. This means stairs and often lots of them, for us it’s three flights up to the top floor and our lovely sunny flat. There are lots of benefits to living on the top floor, no noisy neighbours above you, lots of natural light and heat from all the flats below to name just a few.
Trying to stay minimal in the purchases for a new baby can be a very difficult thing. There are so many cute and appealing clothes out there it’s hard to resist the temptation to just buy, buy, buy. Our society is built around consumption and so much marketing and pressure is geared at new parents it can very hard to stick to the essentials.
When choosing somewhere for the baby to sleep there are so many factors to take into consideration. Do we need a cot or a cot bed, what material should it be made out of, will it fit into our room, do we like how it looks and can we afford it? There are hundreds of options out there for every taste and budget its just finding the one that’s right for you.
I was so excited to finally receive my Solly Baby Wrap in the post the other day. It’s the only thing I felt like a truly needed when I found out I was pregnant. There are many different wraps and baby carriers out there and there were a number of different factors that drew me to the Solly Wrap.
