Lifestyle: The Grand Hotel

Ordering dinner

Our gift from the hotel!

The breakfast hall was amazing!

The grand Brighton hotel

The grand brighton hotel is situated On the sea front only 15minute walk from the pier! As we walked into to the building we were greeted by the reception staff who offered to help us with the pram, We both thought it was such a luxurious place to be in and the hotel itself was so romantic,I felt as though I should have been in a ball gown.

The room:
We stayed in a classic room, which start from £130. It was spacious and very comfortable with an ensuit bathroom and goodies to keep us going even poppy enjoyed the huge bed! You can also get a deluxe sea view room from £290  In our room of the hotel we received: white robes, bottles of water, bathroom goodies, tea and coffee treats. You also get free wifi which comes in handy when you want to post a selfie or a picture of your exquisite food on instagram. 

Dinner: We decided to celebrate our anniversary in the hotels restaurant,GB1 seafood restaurant and bar, which we thought was a bit pricey but that's what you expect in a lovely place like this! We were given a basket of bread & butter along with popcorns snacks! We both ordered pollock & chips I ordered minty mushy peas. We only had glasses of water as we arent big drinkers in fact I probably drink twice a year. And finally for our pudding we were gifted a delicious orange panacotta dessert by the hotel to wish us a happy anniversary!

All I can say is wow! I have never seen such a great breakfast hall! With continental, fry up, cereals and a large selection of breads and pastries. All foods you can imagine we're available to eat from 7- 11 I think next time we will head down earlier and try everything! hahaha.  

All in all this hotel was divine! Only thing I would changed would be having more time to explore the hotel and spa facilities. Wonderful stay.

I hope you enjoyed the read 
Lots of love

what's in Poppy's Easter basket | 2018 | toddler Easter treats |

Easter goodies for my Toddler 

Always another holiday isn't there. I like to make Poppy a box for each special occasion throughout the year; Christmas eve box, Halloween trick or treat bag and Easter is no exception. This Easter i have gone for the more traditional items like my mum used to get us when we were little; books, stickers, chocolate egg, etc... I've not gone as over the the top as I usually do. We are also buying the stuff we know Poppy is really interested in, her favourite characters and bits she can interact with us on as well

The items in the box are not to have in one go, half of this is being used for her Easter egg hunt in the garden. We have gone for the play/learning items this year, she loves books at the moment and we read to her every night. As she enjoys it so much i decided to get her The Gruffalo £5.99 from Waterstones and the Peter rabbit sticker activity book £2 from the Works.

A pack of Bunny crayons £1 from Poundland, Peppa pig play cards £2 fro…

How to Declutter your Home and Keep it that Way

Time to declutter

What helps me destress, be productive and keep myself organised is getting rid of all the bits and bobs i keep laying around the house. Yes, that drawer full of crap and all the kids toys that keep mounting up after Christmas and birthdays. I start with 4 bags; charity, selling, friends/family and bin. You don't have to do all of these in one day, pick a room or an area for one afternoon while the baby sleeps and the toddler is settled with snacks and a colouring book and get busy.


Bathroom- the cabinets, products you dont use or are out of date, bath toys, etc...

Kitchen- food packaging, out of date products, pots and pans you don't use or need to replace

Living room- the mounting of paper work hidden in drawers, kids toys, shoes, etc...

Dining room- ( same as above)

Bedroom- clothes you don't wear, brought but never used, old bed, bedroom drawers and tables, worn out shoes (good quality shoes can be repaired fairly cheaply so dont throw away b…
