Keeping My Children Safe Online

My oldest daughter Chloe is twelve and these days she no longer plays with toy's, instead preferring to spend all of her free time in her room talking to her friends online or watching the latest Zoella video. Her room is full of the latest technology, she owns a laptop, tablet, iPhone and iPod and sometimes even uses all four of them at once so she can do multiple things online. Sometimes I find her watching a youtube video on her laptop while talking to her friends on her phone while searching for things on her tablet and listening to music on her iPod.

Or run away 


So we have no recent photos of her. People with toddlers please share your secrets of how you manage to get lovely photographs of your toddlers.

Organising A Christening

 Two week's ago my baby boy Jacob, was christened and we had a wonderful day with all of our family celebrating his special day with around 100 guests. A lot of people think that to get your child christened you need to attend church or that it will cost a lot of money and take a lot of organising, but it really does not at all. So I thought that I would do a quick guide on how we organised Jacobs day. This was the second time we had organised a christening in just over a year as we had Sophia christened in September 2013.

Book Review : The Book Of You

I do love a good book and have always been a bit of a bookworm, but I admit I am more of a chick lit, romantic comedy kind of girl who adores Marian Keyes and Sophie Kinsella novels over psychological thrillers. So when I was sent The Book Of You, a debut novel by author Claire Kendal which is a psychological thriller I really did not think it was a book I would enjoy. But oh how wrong I was.

January Degustabox

For a couple of months now I have received monthly food subscription boxes to review from Degustabox and you can read my last review here. I love receiving these boxes each month as I have no idea what is inside them until I open them and see what treats are inside the box. Each month I have received these boxes I have found different products and brands to try out which has been great.

If you are unsure of the concept of Degustabox it is basically a monthly food subscription box service. You sign up on the Degustabox website www.degustabox.co.uk and you pay the monthly subscription fee which is £12.99 per month which includes postage and packaging. Then once a month you will receive a box delivered to your door full of between 9-14 surprise food and drink items. Each month the food and drink items will be completely different and it is a great way to try out and discover new products that you may never have tried or heard of before.The great thing about Degustabox is that there is no long sign up commitment you can cancel your subscription at any time as long as you cancel before the 10th of the month you won't be charged. It really is as simple as that.

Dettol Baby Blanket Campaign

As a mum of three, I have loads of baby products in my house and one thing I seem to have a lot of in the back of my cupboard is baby blankets that never get used as we seem to have built up a bit of a collection of them over the years. Obviously, I still use blankets with my baby son Jacob as he is only five months old, he has a few special ones that we got him before he was born and that he loves being wrapped up with in his pram to keep warm.

But some baby's born in poverty or in need here in the UK as well as around the world do not have a nice warm clean blanket to snuggle up to. So Dettol has teamed up with UK children's medical research Charity Sparks to work together on the Dettol baby blanket campaign.

A Valentine Gift From Toxic Fox

Now it is the start of February attention is starting to turn to valentines day. Myself and the other half always buy each other a gift as I think it is a nice way to show the one you love how much you care about them. And let's face it sometimes when you are a parent romance is often the last thing on your mind and ends up being rather neglected. I always struggle buying a valentines gift for my other half, as like a lot of men he is so hard to buy for. He would not appreciate chocolates or a cuddly toy which is all the shops seem to be full of. I wanted something unique, something that he could keep and something that would actually mean something.

I searched in the shops and online and I found nothing. And then I discovered Toxic Fox, an online gift store that specialises in personalised and unique gifts. They sell everything from experience days to personalised gifts such as Claireabella and Typograph of love. They stock sentimental gifts, funny gifts, they really do have a gift for everyone and to suit every budget. I can see Toxic Fox becoming my new go-to gift shopping site.
