CHRISTMAS: 4 DIY Gifts for Children to Make for Loved Ones

CHRISTMAS: 4 DIY Gifts for Children to Make for Loved Ones
DIY gifts are an easy, affordable and thoughtful gift to give on any occasion and as there are so many people to buy for at Christmas what better time to get creative? Now that Isabella is older it is even easier to turn a crafty afternoon into a special gift for a loved one. Isabella and Poppy both get to have fun with paint, stickers, glitter etc., as well as producing a beautiful present. I think it is really important to teach Isabella (and Poppy when she's older) all about the gift of giving and her not be a bit oblivious to it all as we buy all of the presents for everyone. When I was a child I loved nothing more than spending my pocked money on presents for others and that love for buying, making and creating gifts for others hasn't been lost into adulthood. I would like Isabella to grow up appreciating the gifts she receives and understanding what makes a thoughtful present for someone else.

TRAVEL: Falling in love with the Capital of the Cotswolds

TRAVEL: Falling in love with the Capital of the Cotswolds
*Advertorial Content
When I was growing up I didn't live too far from the Cotswolds, so we would often spend days out at Cotswold Wildlife Park, exploring the little villages and going for walks. However, when I went to university up in Durham and then moved to the East Midlands I didn't visit the area as much anymore. That was until we had children and fell back in love with the Cotswolds for family walks, delicious pub lunches and all the beautiful places to visit. Somehow, despite living so close for so many years, I had never visited Cirencester which is considered the 'Capital of the Cotswolds'. It's quite a title and one I was intrigued by, so when the chance came up to visit we were all very excited to see what it had to offer.

CHRISTMAS: What are your family traditions?

CHRISTMAS: What are your family traditions?
Christmas traditions are a big part of the festive period and with new traditions starting all of the time it is exciting deciding which traditions you personally want to follow as a family. It still fascinates me how different each family's Christmas is because up until meeting my now husband I hadn't realised quite how different they could be. Growing up you only know how your family celebrate during the festive period, so it really opened my eyes when I was lucky enough to witness how my husband's family celebrate. Coming together as parents we have brought our own family traditions together, as well as wanting to create our own.

PARENTHOOD: The Wonder of Reaching the Walking Milestone with Poppy

PARENTHOOD: The Wonder of Reaching the Walking Milestone with Poppy
#AD *Advertorial Content - Paid Partnership with SMA® Nutrition 
We recently reached a very exciting milestone with Poppy...she can now walk! It's the milestone I was nervous and excited about in equal measures because life with two children is busy at the best of times, so how would I manage with two children on the move? Would I spend my days trying to look after two children running in opposite directions? In reality I've been surprised at how much reaching this milestone has had a positive impact on our family life. Life has changed, that's for sure, but in ways I certainly didn't anticipate. Poppy is now on a new and exciting journey into the world of being a toddler and it is an absolute honour to witness all the wonder that comes with it.

This is the Gift Guide for the ladies in your life, whether that be your mother, sister, friend, auntie, cousin, sister-in-law or simply for yourself. I love reading Gift Guides for Her to help me write my Christmas Wish List, let alone shopping for my friends and family. Anyone else do this? Shopping for women can seem quite intimidating because there are just so many things to choose from. I've tried to include a variety of gifts to suit all ages, interests and styles, so that by the end you're festive shopping for her is all done.
