Flying long haul with our 5 Month Old Baby

We flew internationally from the UK to the US in May 2022. To put it mildly I was a little nervous. I’m not a great flyer myself (well obvs, no wings) and I hadn’t flown long haul for about 15 years. But I was also worried our baby would have been able to pick upContinue reading “Flying long haul with our 5 Month Old Baby”

Booking and Planning Our Next Disney Trip

This post contains affiliate links I think it’s safe to say that I am super excited for our next Disney holiday. This time we are visiting Disneyland Paris during their Christmas celebrations, something I have never done before but it’s definitely been on my list. Initially we were planning a trip with friends to DisneyContinue reading “Booking and Planning Our Next Disney Trip”

Secondhand September 2022

This year I’m knuckling down and taking part and challenging myself to secondhand September. It’s always been a tricky one as my birthday is in September so it’s like I’ll always get something new even if I buy secondhand. But this year I’m continuing with it as anyone would with a birthday in any otherContinue reading “Secondhand September 2022”

Where We Can Still ‘Shop Small’

I follow a lot of small businesses and love that they offer different things compared to what you can get on the high street. ‘Fast shopping’ is what I’m going to call it, a little like fast fashion but for everything else like homewares, accessories, baby items. I could go on of course there’s loads!Continue reading “Where We Can Still ‘Shop Small’”

We took our 5 month old baby UK to USA – hand luggage only!

This post contains affiliate links. The story starts months and months before when we were invited over to the states for my cousins wedding. It would be a once in a lifetime opportunity so we said yes! Even being pregnant I thought it would be great. It wasn’t until we had her and she wasContinue reading “We took our 5 month old baby UK to USA – hand luggage only!”

A Bit About Disney’s Baby Care Centres

This post contains affiliate links I started this piece about 5 baby things in Disney but found I could go on and on about the baby care centres in the parks. I didn’t know much about them before we went and only knew they were there and yet found the baby care centres in eachContinue reading “A Bit About Disney’s Baby Care Centres”

Buying Consciously at Christmas

I love Christmas shopping more than any other kind. I think the festive music in shops, the fact that people are celebrating at the same time and it means I get to wrap lots of presents at the same time. I’m sure I will not be alone when I say that I love Christmas shoppingContinue reading “Buying Consciously at Christmas”

Buying Consciously Online vs In Person

I’m not the biggest fan of online shopping so not buying clothes online for a few months has been quite easy. I can think of 2 items in my wardrobe that were bought online. One of them had been seen in store a couple of years ago and the other should have been returned butContinue reading “Buying Consciously Online vs In Person”

FOMO, Sustainability and Minimalism

When we live in a world where we not only see our friends wearing a new top we can see a hundred people on the internet also wearing a new top. And that sometimes, with no surprise, can make us want a new top. This is why even when I really wanted to be moreContinue reading “FOMO, Sustainability and Minimalism”

Why I *Never* Pay Full Price

I recently posted the below image on Instagram as the dress I’d bought early in 2020 had been reduced from £69 to £6.90! What a saving I thought. My kind of floaty dress in a light fabric, ideal for the day or night with a feminine feel all at a snip of a price. ItContinue reading “Why I *Never* Pay Full Price”
