With kids there are several certainties in life; they will hate their vegetables, they will ask you ‘why’ lots and they will go through a LOT of shoes. At nine years of age Addy has nearly as many pairs of kids shoes in her wardrobe than I do…one could say like mother like daughter. So when I was contacted to work with online shoe retailer Jake Shoes on a review of their kids collection I jumped at the chance as Addy was in need of some new kicks for the summer and to be honest the thought of hitting the local shoe shops was not that filled me with glee.
Becoming a parent can be extremely rewarding; however, it can also be stressful at times. Keeping your child safe, especially during the early stages of their life, can be difficult especially if you haven’t gone through it all before. I know when Addison was born it seemed like there was a never ending list of items to invest in to make her bedroom safe & reduce worry for me as anew parents.
Fortunately there are things you can do to minimise the risks and ensure your child remains safe at all times. Use thе fоllоwing сhесk list to help уоu mаkе ѕurе thаt уоur сhild iѕ safe in their bеdrооm.
Father’s Day is just around the corner the shops are full of suggestions for gift ideas to let dad know how amazing he is. If you’re looking for something a little different I’ve rounded up three things that have caught my eye on the web in the last few weeks that make great alternative gifts.
First up are these stunning men’s watches from the Camden Watch Co. Perfect for the urban father who likes to look sharp, the Camden Watch Co draws its inspiration from 1900’s industrial London, focusing on key elements of the working man’s daily life, with subtle nods to locomotive style and Victorian train clocks.
The weather has been absolutely beautiful this last week, albeit most of us have been stuck in the office so only managed to enjoy it over our lunch hours, but coming home after work and being able to sit outside in my garden and plant up some summer bulbs has been a lovely end to the day.
I am not a ‘green fingered’ person and gardening isn’t something I love to do but since moving into my house two years ago I have slowly begun to transform a wild overgrown and unloved garden into a place that is enjoyable to sit. I’ve planted a lot of wildflowers and this year they’ve really blossomed and in particular my purple irises have doubled this year and they are such a beautiful bright colour in amongst a sea of greenery.
I love a good watch and invested in a beautiful one for myself some years ago when I was staying at the stunning St Regis hotel in Abu Dhabi (if you ever are lucky enough to stay in this luxury hotel I highly recommend the amazing spa). A luxury watch is an investment and not only looks good, but will also be a lovely piece to pass on someday. The new Pilot collection from BOSS watches has some beautifully designed watches, which, if you are looking for a gift for someone special will tick all the boxes.
