Warning – this could be the most rambling post I have written and I am not sure it actually has a point…

I struggle with this one. I am one of those people who finds it really difficult to say “No” or even to suggest something that would be a compromise I am not sure why this is. I wish I knew, I think it would make my life a lot easier and less stressful at times. Since being diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and going on my pain management course, I have realised that it is more important than ever that I learn to say no, or rather give myself permission to say no.

As a family we have a few Christmas Traditions, some which I had grown up with, and others that my husband brought over from Denmark. I think it’s wonderful how we’ve managed to create something perfectly unique and Christmas is just a wonderful time for us as a family. We visit Father Christmas at the same place each year – Birches Valley – so Boo can get her baby Christmas Tree and she makes a bauble each year for our tree. I have also, for the past two years, created a Book Advent Calendar for her too I am not sure who loves that more – me or Boo!

We have been big fan’s of Childs Farm since Boo was tiny. She has occasional flare ups of dry skin and the best way we have found to combat this is to use gentle products like Childs Farm. They also smell wonderful too – which is always a bonus! We’ve used the Top-to-Toesie Cleaning kit in the past and we loved it. So when Childs Farm asked if we would like to take a look at the Little Essentials Kit I said “yes please!”

Childs Farm Little Essentials Kit Review and Giveway

The Childs Farm Little Essentials Kit contains 4 bottles, each 50ml in a cute little zip up bag. In the kit are Hair and Body Wash for Dirty Rascals, Detangler for Flowing Locks, Moisturiser for Silky Skin and 3 in 1 Swim. They are all really useful for us. The 3 in 1 Swim is perfect for Sunday mornings as Boo goes swimming with her daddy.

I have been having a lot of trouble trying to find the right gifts for certain people in my family. Mainly the guys – my husband and my brother are really difficult to buy for. So when Joseph Joseph got in touch and asked if I would like to have a look at their website and see if anything caught my eye, I jumped at the chance! My husband loves cooking and I knew there would be something that would be perfect of him. And I was right – the Elevate Knives Carousel was ideal!

Elevate Knives Carousel from Joseph Joseph Review

First of all, let’s talk about how it looks – I really love the design of the Elevate Knives Carousel. The black with the splash of colour is great – it’s interesting without being overwhelming. The individual colour splash for each knife also means that you know which is which. The black looks really nice in our kitchen. And I think it would look great in a lot of kitchens – black goes with anything right?

I have been looking for lots of cycling themed pressies this Christmas. My parents are cycling mad so anything cycling themed makes a fab gift. When Ellie Bean Prints got in touch with me and asked if I would like to review one of their prints, I headed over to their website. What caught my eye immediately was the ‘Cycling Prints’ section. Once I had spent a few minutes looking in there I had already seen several I liked!
