TRAVEL: What to Expect at Sandybrook in the Peak District

TRAVEL: What to Expect at Sandybrook in the Peak District
*Advertorial Content - Press Trip
If you are looking to escape your busy life and truly relax while on holiday then Sandybrook in the Peak District is for you. It is one of two Landal GreenParks Pinelodge Holidays in the Peak District; the other location is Darwin Forest, which offers a larger array of lodges and facilities. Both Sandybrook and Darwin Forest aren't too far away from each other, which has the advantage of being able to use both Parks facilities if you would like to. We decided to stay at Sandybrook for a couple of reasons, but mainly because it is smaller, right next to the beautiful town of Ashbourne and is also opposite Dovedale Stepping Stones. The location is just perfect for exploring the outdoors, however if you are faced with a week full of rain like we were then rest assured there is plenty to do inside in the area too.

PARENTHOOD: What to Expect at The Baby Show at the NEC in Birmingham

What to Expect at The Baby Show at the NEC in Birmingham
*Advertorial Content - Press Visit
When Isabella was only around 4 weeks old we went to our first The Baby Show at the NEC in Birmingham and after hours of wandering around, using all of the baby-friendly facilities and filling the pram with all of the goodies we went home feeling part of a much larger parenting network that was new to us back then. It opened our eyes as first time parents to the incredible world of babies and toddlers, along with the vast array of products there are out there to support the exciting journey throughout those early years. Fast forward four years and we are so excited to be expecting our third baby; although we certainly aren't 'new parents' anymore the world of babies is always evolving and changing.

PARENTHOOD: 20 Tips for Staying in a Hotel with Children

PARENTHOOD: 20 Tips for Staying in a Hotel Room with Children
Parenthood and hotels aren't two things that naturally go hand in hand, are they? The idea of squeezing the whole family into one hotel room can bring even the calmest parent out in a cold sweat. How will we all get any sleep? Will we have to spend the evening in the bathroom? etc. But it doesn't have to be out of the questions and since we've stayed in a few hotels recently I've learnt a few tips along the way. All of our hotel stays have been positive and a good nights sleep has been had all round. Mainly thanks to the following twenty tips, so I thought I'd share them with you...

DAY OUT: Discover The Falconer's Quest at Warwick Castle

DAY OUT: Discover The Falconer's Quest at Warwick Castle
*Advertorial Content - Press Trip
Warwick Castle is such a nostalgic place for me, as I used to walk past it on the way to secondary school for years. I spent most of my teenage years living in Warwick, so going back to visit Warwick Castle with Isabella and Poppy was so exciting. If you're not familiar with Warwick Castle then it is one of the very popular attractions within the Merlin Entertainments Group. Located in the heart of Warwick, a beautiful quaint town in the midlands, it's history stretches over 11 centuries and with £6 million spent on it's restoration in the past 10 years alone you can imagine how impressive it is to explore.

CELEBRATIONS: Our Joint 4th and 2nd Mermaid Themed Birthday Party

CELEBRATIONS: Our Joint 4th and 2nd Mermaid Themed Birthday Party
*Advertorial Content - Gifted Items 
At the beginning of April Isabella turned four and in June Poppy will be two; honestly where does the time go? While they are both young (and aren't at school yet!) we have really enjoyed throwing them a joint party together. It helps to keep costs down, Poppy doesn't have many friends of her own (second child problems), it means they can be excited together and it makes it easier to get all of their friends/family together. This may well be the last joint party they have though, as Isabella starts school in September. I have to admit it did take me a while to decide whether to do a party at all this year because on the run up I was struggling with morning sickness, as I'm currently pregnant with our third baby. I wasn't sure whether I could manage planning a party, especially as previous parties have always been quite an event to put on. After a lot of deliberations and Isabella asking when her party was going to be the guilt got too much I decided to try and throw a slightly toned down version of previous parties.

PREGNANCY #3: The First Trimester - The Guilt, Mental Struggle and all of the Sickness

PREGNANCY #3: The First Trimester - The Guilt, Mental Struggle and all of the Sickness
I can barely believe it, but here we are again...pregnancy announcement number THREE! Where to begin? Time really is flying this time and I'm now 16 weeks pregnant, which means I'm officially into my second trimester all ready. But lets go back to February when we found out that I was pregnant and all of those emotions that come with such a moment. Now before I begin I have to say that we are feeling extremely lucky to be pregnant again, but I also want to be honest. There is a lot of pressure to feel nothing but happiness when you find out your pregnant, but it isn't always like that.
