Celebrating Grandparents Day featuring BakerDays*

We always celebrate Mother and Father’s day, but you hardly ever hear about Grandparents day. Grandparents are precious especially my mum Edna aka Glamma. Darcy adores her and without her endless love, support and being a fountain of knowledge I would seriously struggle.

Happy First Grandparents day mum xxx

Now on to the cake….

So when the team at BakerDays messaged me asking if I wanted to review one of their 5 inch personalised letterbox cakes I knew straight away I wanted to send my mum one.

You can personalise the cake by either uploading a picture, adding your own message or picking one of their pre designed cakes. You can pick from a variety of flavours including sponge, chocolate or fruit cake. They also offer gluten wheat free and dairy free so no one misses out.

The cake actually arrived through my letterbox, I don’t know why I was so surprised; after all it is called a Letterbox cake! Upon opening the box I was greeted with cake tin, a card, balloons, candles and even a party blower which was a nice little touch.

The cake was lovely and moist considering it was sent in the post and has a use by date of 14 days. As you can see Darcy couldn't wait to get stuck in to it!!

I really love the idea of sending a celebration cake to a friend or loved one, it makes a lovely surprise.

If you fancy treating a love one to a BakerDays cake you can order online here, cakes start at £14.99 with free postage. You can also find them on Facebook and Twitter.

Did you celebrate Grandparent Day? What is your favourite cake? I have far too many to pick from

Bloggers Event | #bgomeetup

Now it’s very unlike me to be out during the week, but when James from Joe Blogs Network invited me #bgomeetup, I made an exception I swapped my puked covered clothes for something a little bit smarter and headed down to Kings Cross to their Head Office.

I was greeted with a glass of prosecco and handed £30 of vouchers to exchange for chips.

I bumped into my favourite welsh babe Michaela from we had a bit of a natter over a few glasses of prosecco before heading over to the casino tables.

I had a bit of a YOLO moment on the roulette table and lost all my money within 5 minutes.

Pizza arrived and everyone mingle and out to know each other more and took selfies with a giant inflatable dinosaur and a cut out of Verne Troyer of mini me frame. The room was buzzing and full of laughter.

We also had the opportunity to play the Jungle Trouble slot game - all the winnings on the night went to the the World Wildlife Foundation!

A big thank you to all the Joe Bloggers team for inviting me. Even though I didn’t win any of the prizes I had a amazing evening and met some great people.

Review | Natural Birthing Company Bosom Buddies Breastfeeding Survival Kit*

Breastfeeding is one of those topics that everyone feels differently about and has had different experiences too! When I was pregnant with Darcy I was keen to read up as much as possible about everything so that  was as prepared as I could be! Breastfeeding was something that I kept coming back to, simply because there didn't seem to be a one answer method to any of the questions that I had.

With Darcy I went for mixed feeding, because she didn't always seem to get enough milk from the breast. I am a firm believer in knowing what is best for you and your baby, that method worked for us and that is all that matters. If you are in a similar position, you need to do what you need to do!

If you do decide to try breast feeding then it stands to reason you are going to want to make your life as easy as possible. When I cam across the Bosom Buddies Breastfeeding Survival Kit from The Natural Birthing Company I was really pleased with how the kit worked. Using the kit is easy and it can help your breastfeeding journey in so many ways.

The kit comes with three solutions that you can mix with water to help sooth your sore breasts. I know sore and painful nipples might not be an easy thing to talk about - but if you breastfeed they probably will hurt! 

You get "ohh" for engorged breasts, the "ahh" solution for a low milk supply and "ouch" for sore nipples. You also get a pair of organic cotton flannels to help put these on your breasts when you need to (Just as you would expect from The Natural Birthing Company!)

You simply add the solution that you want to the cloth and sit back and relax for half an hour, preferably in a dark room. They're packed with all sorts of essential oils and goodness which can help with breastfeeding, sore nipples and even with helping you to feel calmer and more relaxed. Breastfeeding isn't always the easiest of options but I found that using this kit really helped me with feeling relaxed and 'pulling myself together'.

I love how beautifully presented the kit is, which helps to make it a possible gift if you know a mum-to-be or something you buy yourself. It;s only £29.99 to buy and I found that each of the solutions helped me just as they should! There are lots of benefits to breastfeeding your baby so for me, anything that helps mum through this often challenging time is fantastic and something that I would advocate! This product did just that, and as the only product of its type on the market, it's well worth trying!

Do you have any breastfeeding tips? Feel free to share them here!

We're going on an adventure

Lush Dark Angels

Heya everyone

I thought I would write a little post about one of my favorites cleansers Dark Angels. I absolutely love it for so many reasons and here they are;

  • Its organic and oil free
  • It's works well for my oily and acne prone skin
  • It is exfoliating
  • You can also use it on the body too
  • It has licorice root extract which is an anti-inflammatory
  • It leaves my skin feeling smooth and clean
Since having Darcy my skin has suffered badly from outbreaks and I truly believe Dark Angels has calmed it down a lot. I know my skin is not perfect at the moment but it's getting there.

So here's my little review, I thought I would share this with you because I feel like its not a much talked about product.

Have you tried this cleanser? What is your favourite cleanser?
