Bump Monday | 21 weeks Pregnant |

|| 21 weeks today! ||

How am I feeling?
It's Monday, whoo. I most definitely have that Monday morning feeling....
We went baby shopping yesterday; I managed to purchase a Car seat we went for the Maxi Cosi Pebble it was on offer in John Lewis. Apart from that I still can't bring myself to buy anything really...
I'm feeling ok just tired or should I say exhausted. Everything seems a chore but I think I'm just tired after yesterday. I think most other baby things will be bought online. 
I can't bring myself to go to busy shops again. 

SPD is feeling better this week 

Baby is the size of a carrot 

Skittles. Yum
Olives. Amazing.
Pitta & houmous....

On a positive :
After our scan last week, we have a very happy & healthy baby. 

Fraser Fir LED Wreath | Review | Christmas

I'd been looking at getting a Christmas door wreath for some time now, I was so excited when I received it in the post. 

"A Timeless Christmas Favourite"

What I love :
It's made from a perfect combination of their signature TRUE NEEDLE™ and classic needle tips. The colouring is beautiful with a mix of warm mixture of toned green and a hint of silver for that truly natural look. 
I love the LED lights & that the battery pack and timer automatically lights up the wreath for a maximum of six hours at a time. This creates a brilliant display each night. 
I've had many compliments from friends and family also our postman! 

Up close the wreath doesn't cry out "I AM FAKE" but looks in keeping with the outside & nature. 

The lights add a splash of class & festivity.

RRP for this beautiful 24 inch BH Fraser Fir LED Wreath is just £89 but currently £59 in the sale.... (26/11/15)

Advent Calendar Crafty Christmas | Competition |

As it's now almost December I can now talk about Christmas.
How exciting.
Ocean Loans recently contacted me about this crafty project to combine people's love of their homes, christmas, crafts and advent calendars into one. 
How perfect.

I was sent a plain wooden advent house & a voucher to then go to a local craft shop & buy all the bits I feel I need to create my perfect advent house.

I picked up pretty christmassy bits of paper, wooden stars, little buttons, the cutest gingerbread men, numbers, white paint & glue.

I started by painting my whole house white, I had to do four coats of white paint. Who knew? 

Then I started fitted the paper to size... easier said than done I promise you...

I started using the red & brown bits of paper but before i stuck it all down I realised I wanted to stick with brown & white paper...

With life being so manic I left my house all prepped but not stuck down for a few days.

Finally finished it; all the doors open & I've put little chocolates in each door. 
Now we just need the 1st December to hurry up & we can enjoy our calendar.

It fits in perfectly with our house decor.
Fun & child friendly.

Christmas day door ! 

This is my finished Advent calendar for the Competition.

I've really enjoyed putting it all together & hopefully it'll now be in our family for years & years to come.

I love it, the children love it too.
