INTRODUCING: Bambo Nature and their First Ever Press Event

INTRODUCING: Bambo Nature and their First Ever Press Event

A few weeks ago we headed to the Bambo Nature Press Event at the stunning Kelmarsh Hall & Gardens. I had come across Bambo Nature a while ago and was excited to find out more about the ethos behind the brand and their range of products. As we arrived at the event venue we were greeted by the lovely ladies behind Bambo Nature and their PR team. The room was beautifully decorated with lots of fun activities for the children to take part in. Isabella headed straight for the craft table, which was set up with a variety of environmentally friendly craft activities. Before I could even put my bag down Isabella was threading beads and pieces of bamboo onto garden wire, ready to create an eco-friendly room decoration! Luckily the lady running the activities was so helpful and guided Isabella through the steps, so I had a chance to look around at the Bambo Nature products and listen to the talk about the brand.

WEANING: Favourite Meals, Tips and Products

WEANING: Favourite Meals, Tips and Products
When it comes to weaning it can be an exciting journey for parents or one that is completely intimidating. I remember being so worried when it came to weaning Isabella because all the advice I read seemed to conflict each other, the risk of choking was scary and there were so many weaning products out there I didn't know where to begin. We started weaning Isabella just before she was six months, starting with purees and quickly moving onto finger food then lumpy food. Despite my nerves it ended up being so much fun and I learnt that the mess one baby can make is impressive. When it came to the time we should be weaning Poppy I was surprised to feel those nerves come back, as an 'experienced' mummy I thought I'd know what to do this time.

FAMILY DAY OUT: Kelmarsh Hall & Gardens with a Spring Wardrobe from Little Green Radicals

FAMILY DAY OUT: Kelmarsh Hall & Gardens with a Spring Wardrobe from Little Green Radicals
We're finally in spring and it won't be long before summer makes an appearance too, so it's the perfect time to prepare Isabella and Poppy's wardrobe in time for the warm weather. During the recent stretch of beautiful warm weather we made the most of it and headed to Kelmarsh Hall & Gardens in Northamptonshire. Kelmarsh Hall is a Grade I listed country house built in 1732, set in the most stunning gardens. The Gardens include a beautiful array of flowers, tress and shrubbery all set in a large walled garden, as well as around the Estate. It is the perfect day out as a family because there is plenty of space to run around and most of the gardens are pushchair friendly too (aside from a few steps to get down to the gardens).

EXPOSURE THERAPY: Three Months In

In 2016 I was involved in a serious car accident (you can read more about it here and how it impacted my life one year on here - warning - if you're an anxious person you may not want to). Though my physical injuries were minimal for the severity of the crash, the impact it has had on my mental health has been intense. My struggled with anxiety aren't something I write about very often, so to many it may come as a surprise. My Instagram feed and blog are filled with happy photos of my family adventures, but what you don't see is the tears, panic and almost constant twist of worry in my stomach. Travelling anywhere in the car is hard for me, which not only makes my day to day world very small but it also means that I have to confront my fear almost daily.

PARTY: How to Make and Decorate Ice-Cream Biscuits

PARTY: How to Make and Decorate Ice-Cream Biscuits
After deciding on an ice-cream themed party for Isabella and Poppy my attention turned to what I could make, bake and create. I love adding my own personal twist to any special event I host, so the girls joint party was the perfect opportunity to get creative and browse Pinterest at length! I've put together a blog post with all the ice-cream party inspiration you'll need and how the party actually turned out, in case you're also in party planning mode.

MOTHERHOOD: Pushing My Daughter Away

MOTHERHOOD: Pushing My Daughter Away
Around one year ago I was saying my goodbyes to everyone at work, washing teeny tiny baby clothes in readiness for our new arrival and then waiting very patiently for the birth our of second daughter. After keeping us waiting for 12 days after her due date I was finally induced on the Wednesday and gave birth a matter of hours later. It was magical, empowering and fast (we hadn't even got the baby bag out of the car!), which was then followed with the blur of those early newborn days. Fast forward to now and after a full year of maternity leave I'm preparing for my impending return to work. My return isn't for long (you can read all about my plans for returning to work here), though that doesn't mean I'm not intimidated and anxious about it all. Any change can be scary and this one will impact on our whole family.
