Organising your holiday packing #AD

Holiday packing in two suitcases

Holiday Packing Going on holiday or for mini breaks are fabulous but packing my luggage is not so fabulous for me!

Beautiful wall art and a competition!

I have never been a huge fan of hanging paintings in my home to be honest as I can never find anything that I love enough to look at every day and that also matches the décor but when it comes to pictures of my children then that is a whole different story as of course I love to look at them every day! When Canvas design gave me the opportunity to do a product review for them I jumped at the chance[Read more]

Autumn Family poem.

When I heard that to win a holiday at Center Parcs you and your family need to write a poem about autumn I jumped at the chance as I love writing poetry and I thought that even if we do not win, it will be a great family project to do. The poem was inspired by the season and also by some brilliant tips from Emma Tapp and I particularly liked number three. Get creative – Have your children decorate their[Read more]
