It Has Arrived! | Hybrid Stroller

So my very own transformer stroller has finally arrived and i wanted to share with you my first impressions of it whilst we are still waiting for this little princess to pop out!

Taking it out of the box filled me with so much excitement, like a kid at Christmas, sad i know but look at it! it is gorgeous!

As you know i love the colour green so i went with the shade pistachio which is beautiful.

 I had no difficulty putting it together. The wheels literally click into place and the frame folds down with ease.The seat can also be positioned facing you which is a bonus.

I also got the carry cot attachment to go with this which is perfect for little newborns,it has its own mattress and feels super soft and cosy. This attachment fits into each side of the frames half circle slots and clicks into place.

The basket underneath this stroller is very large and can also be used to store the hybrid changing bag.

One of my favourite things about this stroller is both the seat and carrycot has a little compartment. For them quick trips to the local shops that don't require a changing bag that has everything in it plus the kitchen sink, this little beauty can be used for small change,keys and your mobile phone. 

I am so pleased with it and can not wait to give it a proper test drive once little madam is here and give you a full review!

Heavenly Tasty!

Back to school time and one thing i dread more than anything is the packed lunches!. Kadiann enjoys a hot school meal most days but Alessia is not keen on them and has a packed lunch 4 days out of the 5, she loves the chippy Friday lunch though!

Trying to keep snacks in Alessia's lunch box healthy as well as yummy has been an issue in the past. Making sure things are not repetitive, Alessia enjoying her lunch as well as it keeping her full is what i aim for.

Heavenly Tasty is an organic company that produces organic superfood snacks, cereals, fruit squishes, bread sticks, i could go on.They have such a wide variety of different yummy treats to suit both baby and child.

We got the privilege to try out some of their snacks and Alessia loved them!. They are available to purchase in most supermarkets, Ocado,tesco,Waitrose,Morrisons, to name a few, and also Boots which is very convenient if your out and about and need a quick snack stop.

Have you tried Heavenly Tasty? ,what did you think?, let us know if you was as happy with your snacks as this little munckin.

First Trimester | Baby number 3

Yes i am actually writing about my first trimester, i am pregnant!. This all seems so bizarre to me and i cant quite believe it yet, although i should by now. If you would like to know more about us finding out and if we had planned this little munchkin then you can check out my  pregnancy diary video on my you tube channel :)

So, the first trimester for me has been a bit of a rocky road. We found out we were expecting around 4 weeks and it has pretty much been a bit of a roller coaster ride.


At 5 weeks i had cramping, i wasn't to sure if this was down to me still working my normal shifts, as a carer in the community, and perhaps over doing things so i left it for a few days to see how i got on. After a few days i noticed some bleeding and got booked in for an early scan at the early pregnancy unit. 

Unfortunately they were unable to see much due to me being so early on in the pregnancy and re booked me in for the following week.We went back a week later and everything was fine, with a great sigh of relief for myself as i had been a nervous wreck that week waiting.


Initially i had very sore breasts, even the bath water seemed to give me such excruciating pain, which is quite common for me and i had this in my previous pregnancies. This ,thankfully, has eased off and is somewhat bearable. Nausea pretty much throughout the first trimester was horrendous, the feeling of being constantly hungover left me feeling very poorly and i had been unable to eat much and did not have much of an appetite at all.

Dehydration also played a part towards the end of this trimester, and i also had quite a few headaches, whether these two were linked i am not sure but the headaches are now far and few between and  i managed to control the thirst.


I cant say i have had any cravings so far. I had such odd cravings with the girls and they lasted throughout the pregnancies but this time round i haven't had any of yet. The only thing that i would class as a bit of a craving is oranges and satsumas, i have been really enjoying these, whether they will become a craving,time will tell.


So we had our 12 week scan and i have got to say i was very nervous, being a sufferer of anxiety i cant seem to shift the worry of is everything alright, so we went in, we took both the girls, which was lovely, and we all saw little bean. The baby was doing excellent, wriggling about waving and having its only little party in there, which was amazing to see.

So the first trimester is over, seems like it has gone by in a flash!. Lets see what the second trimester brings :)

BabyStyle Hybrid Stroller Launch

If you are not aware by now, most of you are!, i am currently pregnant with baby number 3. It has been a long time coming and me and Scott thought it would never happen,but it has and we are all thrilled!.

When the opportunity came up to attend the launch for the new Hybrid Pushchair by Babystyle at Baby Planet in Derby, i jumped at the chance.

I had a quick look online at the stroller itself and couldn't wait to have a push of it in person.

On arrival, we were greeted with a warm welcome and a glass of fizz,obviously non alcoholic,roll on due day!. There were plenty of refreshments, drinks and a lovely friendly atmosphere.

Now,the strollers, oh my!, They looked incredible,even better in real life. We had a demo from one of the lovely gentlemen and i have got to say it is amazing. It can be changed into a number of different strollers to suit you and your family, for example  the single pushchair can become a tandem if you have two little ones. 

You can also unhook the top component and apply a car seat or a carry cot, simply by clicking two flips either side, i was sold!. I have re named this stroller the transformer because it really is something out of this world.

The stroller comes in a few different colours,which are all stunning. My favourite have got to be the pistachio and wild orchard


I had a
 a lovely time at the launch and I can not wait to receive my pushchair and give you all a full review of my very own transformer! :)

Last Minute Christmas Gift

Christmas is only a week away now so not long left to finish the Christmas shopping. One present me and Scott get the girls every year is a board game. We enjoy board games after Christmas dinner and it is somewhat a tradition now of ours.

 Orchard Toys kindly sent the girls 'What a performance' : an action packed game of fun for all the family.

The front cover of the box at first glance looked very fun and we couldn't wait to get stuck in.

Suitable for ages 5 and up and 2x players. The board is so simple to put together,just like a jigsaw and in only four pieces.

 The aim of the game is to get to the finish line first, but it isn't as easy as that. Along the way you will pick up cards and be asked to perform a number of tasks including pretending to be a monkey or wiggle your ears.

If you are unable to act out your task then you will have to do the forfeit that is hidden on the back of the card. You will find the hidden forfeit by using the special decoder,which Alessia thought was  magic!

We have had so much fun playing this and think it will be a big hit around the Christmas table!

ToucanBox To The Rescue

When it comes to arts and crafts, we love nothing more than to spend the afternoon
or a rainy day at the table letting our imagination run wild.One
thing i am guilty of is forgetting to stock up the craft box and we have
had numerous occasions where the girls have been mid way through a project
and have needed something that we have ran out of!

ToucanBox is a perfect solution for us. The box arrives straight
 through your letter box, addressed to your little one, which Alessia
was amazing. Everything you will need to make the projects are included along
 with some information leaflets.

This box was Christmas themed so we got the chance to make some Christmas 
decorations for the tree
 and Alessia got a chance to practice her reindeer drawing with the help 
of the Christmas book provided.

We have had a lovely afternoon reviewing this subscription box and give it a 10/10.
 For the chance to receive your first box for free,  click on the link below 

Dont forget to let me know whats inside your box!

Thanks for reading

Wheres Wally | Review & Competition

For as long as i can remember Wheres Wally has always been a favourite of mine, spending hours looking for him in the books at primary school.As i have grown and had a family of my own, we have all enjoyed sitting round the table at the library finding the little guy.

The children got a chance to review the latest editions to the Wheres Wally books as well as the the new colouring book!. I have got to say i was a little excited about this too.

We received the new activity books which are Wheres Wally At Sea, Wheres Wally Across Lands,Wheres Wally Takes Flight and Wheres Wally Outer Space. We also received the colouring book which is jam packed with colouring pages,a big thumbs up.

The girls have been having so much fun with these books.We have spent hours over the weekend colouring in. Alessia has loved getting her colouring pens out with a book of her choice after dinner. 
She has also picked out the outer space activity book for her friends birthday present as she says its 'awesome'. 

Kadiann loves colouring and we find it quite therapeutic. She has set herself the challenge of completing one of the colouring pages,which i must admit,do look quite a challenge!


We have been given the chance to give away 5x copies of the Wheres Wally Colouring Books to our readers.

 To enter the competition, click on the link below and we will keep our fingers crossed for you all.
