The twins bedroom is still an ongoing project, we are almost there but I am determined to get their bedding right.  My search for the perfect match seems to have been endless.  I know what I am looking for but can I find it in the right colour and for a not silly price !  Recently the owner of Babou (another local lady) started following me on twitter.  I always try to check out new followers and boy was I glad I did this one ! 

Beautiful childrens bedding and accessories in perfect, classic colours.

I Love, love the red gingham and will certainly be popping back there in the New year. (With the twins birthdays and Christmas both in December, its a pretty tight month).

Go over and take a look, buy British and support local UK Businesses xx

Red and white gingham duvet set in 100% super soft cotton !

Co-ordinating Sack for all those boy essentials

and fantastic value on sale at the moment - if you thought you had a mini footballer in your tummy when pregnant - check out this gorgeous baby bedding available at a steal of a price !

Switzerland ! Dream on .......

I received an email out of the blue from an old friend who lives in Switzerland. Apart from being wonderful to hear from them after such a long time I allowed myself to get all excited at the prospect of a visit. If we could find the travel costs, they want us to take the family to stay! Visions of Christmas in Switzerland, a beautiful country, particularly in Winter and the chance for the boys to learn to ski!

Apart from last year, we don’t get much snow in Devon. The twins were amazed and thrilled by it when they saw it, but we were woefully unprepared clothes wise. Whilst having my trip to Switzerland 5 minute fantasy I decided to have a look at what snow outfits are available online that could also earn their money in the wet & sometimes cold climate of Devon.

I came across this stylish boys all in one snowsuit by Dare2B Kids available at Marshall Leisure, its practical and warm and even more wonderful, it’s on sale for only £35 a massive 42 % saving off the RRP of £60.

After number crunching and doing the sums it’s clear that although a wonderful opportunity, we really won’t be able to go to Switzerland for a visit. We just don’t have the kind of cash spare to pay for a family of 5 and everything needed to make it a reality.

Never mind, there’s always next year!

 Maybe ski lessons instead ………

Classic, Stylish Cool Boys Shoes

I've always been a lover of classic clothes and shoes for children.  You won't see my sons wearing over priced, character laden flashing shoes !  When I came across the stylish Cool Boys Shoes online store, I was really pleased to see that not only were they indeed stylish and cool, but also fantastic value for money.


Owner Angela was often asked after trips to Portugal, where she  purchased her son's shoes.  Identifying the gap in the market for affordable classic boys styles she decided to set up her online business.  These shoes and boots all made from quality leather, scream quality and class !  I love them !  Pop over and take a look.  Also on sale are boots, school and baby shoes.  I for one will be buying from there soon.......

Cindy Crawford Meaningful Beauty and Me

I am finally beginning to feel like a member of the human race again, after taking to my bed (something I have not had the luxury of doing in a long, long time) with a sickness and achy type bug, imagine how thrilled I was to receive this gorgeous package of grown up girls face care products to review !!

Those who know me will testify, I am not the best at looking after my skin. I am the jump in the shower, scrub with soap and slap on the "whatever happens to be lying around" kind of girl !  Unfortunately I think age might just be beginning to catch up with me! and all those horrified friends who are constantly telling me to "drink 8 glasses of water a day and cleanse, tone and moisturise", might now need to be listened to !

This lovely set from the gorgeous Miss Crawford might just be my salvation!  Packaged in a clean, fresh White and Silver (perfect for sitting in my all white bedroom), it consists of :

Cleanse - Skin Softening Cleanser 

Maintenance 1 - Day Moisture with SPF

Maintenance 2 - Night Fluide

Eyes - Eye Crème

Masque - Facial Masque

Décolleté - Décolleté and Neck Crème

Glowing Serum – Skin Revitalising Serum

I promise faithfully to use it as directed until its all used up and report back the results.  Now for the shocker, here's me in all my glory, Freshly scrubbed from the shower, post sickness bug.  I'll update this post in a few weeks.  If the devine smell of these products is anything to go by this is one regime I might just stick to !
