Morrisons New ‘Nutmeg’ Clothing Range

I have been browsing the web a lot recently looking at clothes for my baby girl, due 7th January 2015. I have come across a lot of different styles of clothes, varying enormously in quality and price. I have to keep asking myself, why would anyone would feel comfortable spending £80 on a single baby sleep suit? I have no idea…

I stumbled across a pack of gorgeous baby sleep suits on eBay a few days ago and fell in love with them, I have never heard of the clothing range before (Nutmeg by Morrison’s) but I placed a bid and Continue reading


The Great Baby Wipe Debate

Johnsons Baby WipesWhen you think about it, baby wipes are such simple things, basically, they are a disposable cloth treated with a cleansing agent (which is normally fragrant) and they are generally intended for cleaning babies and young children, although I am slightly addicted to them myself. I use baby wipes daily for cleaning my hands and washing my face. Most baby wipes are not expensive, prices ranging from £1.00 to £4.00 for a pack of roughly 60 wipes. But, why am I writing about baby wipes? Well… it makes me laugh how Continue reading


TRESemme Vitamin E Aloe Colour Protection Shampoo and Conditioner


I have always been a bit obsessed with colouring my hair, that’s one of the problems with being a hairdresser! I am forever seeing people change their hair style and colour and I always find myself thinking “hmm… I wonder what that will look like on me?”.

Over the years my hair has become very damaged, because of this, my hair finds its difficult to lock in colour. Usually, my hair stays bright and fresh after a colouring session for about three weeks… then it goes very dull and

The Horrors of Buying a Changing Bag


One thing I have noticed since becoming pregnant is that a lot of other mum-to-be’s can be VERY judgmental towards the choices you make when you purchase a product or service for you and your baby. There are a lot of divided opinions on what you should and shouldn’t buy and what you should and shouldn’t do.

I have been struggling for a while to find a nice changing bag that will meet all my needs. I am a first time mum-to-be so have no experience of changing bags and what they Continue reading


This Baby Is A Sugar Freak


Oh the joys of pregnancy cravings. I’m starting to feel so sorry for my partner, I am forever sending him down to the corner shop to buy me packs of chocolate, raisins and milk… he’s officially on first name terms with the lady behind the counter!

So, at the moment I have been having serious hankerings for tinned Heinz Ravioli and plain Galaxy Chocolate… just writing it down is making my mouth salivate. I wish I had more cravings for Continue reading


20 Week Anomaly Ultrasound


We have just had our 20 week Anomaly Scan. This scan takes a closer look at baby peanut and my uterus (womb). The person carrying out the scan (sonographer) checked that baby peanut is developing normally, and she looked at where the placenta is lying in my uterus, apparently, my placenta is laying at the front and up high which is normal.

The sonographer asked if we wanted to know the sex of baby peanut, we already knew the gender of baby (girl!) from a previous scan at 16 Continue reading


Gender Reveal Ultrasound


So, I booked myself in for a 16 week gender reveal scan with Ultrasounds Direct. I have been so excited its unreal… we found out whether baby peanut is a girl or boy! OK, so here it goes… we are having a baby… GIRL!

I cant believe it, deep down from day one I have been thinking that peanut was a boy, I’ve had baby boys names picked, baby boys clothes decided and I even saved a beautiful pram that I have been eying up for a while in a Continue reading
