I love receiving gifts like these through the post! People who run small businesses on Instagram or facebook are always so lovely and really put so much effort in to the items that they make. I have always had personalised christmas decorations for Josh every single year so it was only fair I had some for Freddie. 

Look at how beautiful these are! Personalised with their names on and filled with lovely tiny jewels that really shine lovely in the light. The bow used to hang on to the tree is thee perfect added touch and I love how it will look on the tree. Perfect for his first christmas decoration! 

Josh's is such an amazing bright blue and he loves it. I love how she has used different colours inside as they really compliment each other and look lovely together. Once again they are personalised with their names and a beautiful bow to hang from the tree. Josh loves the noise when you shake them and shouts 'listen to the music mum' 

On to frame and I am so pleased with it;

I have wanted a frame with a picture of his first day of school since he started. As it is such a special day to celebrate I wanted a lasting memory and this is perfect.

The design is lovely and the writing is on the glass which makes it look really professional.

 Look at the little crayon this added touch makes it look so much better and I am really impressed with the quality. 

Josh keeps showing everybody his frame when they come over, I want to put it on show in the boys toy room as soon as we move as I think it will be the perfect place to show it off! The frame is lovely and strong too and hasn't broken like quite a few I have received before! (which is always good) 

Overall I am really happy with the products I was sent and would highly recommend you taking a visit to her page on Instagram here and her Facebook page here.

Personalised gifts I really believe are the best at christmas and these really would make the perfect gift for any of your friends or family.

You won't be disappointed! 




I cannot believe what I am seeing! Naughty Elvis has only gone and eaten all of Mummy's advent calendar! What a cheeky elf! 

'Mum I can't believe it, do you want to share mine with me instead?' At least I have a lovely little boy!




Oh Elvis! How could you be so rude! Josh found this one hilarious!

Josh loved waking up yesterday morning and finding the elf he was amazed. He dragged everyone out of bed to show them how cheeky he was!

What has the naughty little elf been getting up to today?

What a naughty elf! He has only taken our eggs and last banana and drew faces all over them! 

I wonder what Josh will think...


Tired Of Being Tired

Healthy sleep habits can make a big difference in your quality of life. Having healthy sleep habits is often referred to as having good sleep hygiene. Try to keep the following sleep practices on a consistent basis:

  1. Stick to a sleep schedule of the same bedtime and wake up time, even on the weekends. This helps to regulate your body's clock and could help you fall asleep and stay asleep for the night.
  2. Practice a relaxing bedtime ritual. A relaxing, routine activity right before bedtime conducted away from bright lights helps separate your sleep time from activities that can cause excitement, stress or anxiety which can make it more difficult to fall asleep, get sound and deep sleep or remain asleep.
  3. If you have trouble sleeping, avoid naps, especially in the afternoon. Power napping may help you get through the day,but if you find that you can't fall asleep at bedtime, eliminating even short catnaps may help.
  4. Exercise daily. Vigorous exercise is best, but even light exercise is better than no activity. Exercise at any time of day, but not at the expense of your sleep.
  5. Evaluate your room. Design your sleep environment to establish the conditions you need for sleep. Your bedroom should be cool – between 60 and 67 degrees. Your bedroom should also be free from any noise that can disturb your sleep. Finally, your bedroom should be free from any light.
  6. Sleep on a comfortable mattress and pillows. Make sure your mattress is comfortable and supportive. The one you have been using for years may have exceeded its life expectancy – about 9 or 10 years for most good quality mattresses. It may simply need fine tuning, a mattress topper guide may assist you in making your existing mattress your perfect sleep soulmate Have comfortable pillows and make the room attractive and inviting for sleep but also free of allergens that might affect you.
  7. Use bright light to help manage your circadian rhythms. Avoid bright light in the evening and expose yourself to sunlight in the morning. This will keep your circadian rhythms in check.
  8. Avoid alcohol, cigarettes, and heavy meals in the evening. Alcohol, cigarettes and caffeine can disrupt sleep. Eating big or spicy meals can cause discomfort from indigestion that can make it hard to sleep. If you can, avoid eating large meals for two to three hours before bedtime.
  9. Wind down. Your body needs time to shift into sleep mode, so spend the last hour before bed doing a calming activity such as reading. For some people, using an electronic device such as a laptop can make it hard to fall asleep, because the particular type of light emanating from the screens of these devices is activating to the brain.
  10. If you can't sleep, go into another room and do something relaxing until you feel tired. It is best to take work materials, computers and televisions out of the sleeping environment. Use your bed only for sleep and sex to strengthen the association between bed and sleep.
  11. If you’re still having trouble sleeping, don’t hesitate to speak with your doctor or to  find a sleep professional.

Follow this simple guide and soon you’ll be so good at getting 40 winks - you could do it with your eyes closed!
