The Venus awards Isle Of Wight Launch



















I was invited to the venus awards isle of wight launch, which was hosted at premier ford house (category sponsor for "small business" award). The evening started off with presecco and cupcakes made by the lovely nikki from Tikerty-Boo, www.tikertyboocupcakes.co.uk . Many of us ladies were found talking and networking amongst ourselves while the samba Solent group performed for our evenings entertainment. There were little stalls on display, one of which was from The isle of wight pearl, (category sponsor for " inspirational women" award). The night was flowing with bubbly , canap├ęs and friendly women. Mary Burgess the regional partner for the isle of wight venus awards 2015 grabbed our attention by introducing us to the awards categories and all the sponsors. There was also a raffle raising  money for isle of wight youth trust which was very close to Mary's heart. The prizes were from the isle of wight pearl, wight link, the isle of wight zoo and many more, I unfortunately didn't win, Boo! As we were leaving the event they were handing out a few goody bags which were filled up with premier ford goodies and one which was my favourite a yankee candle air freshener! All in all the night was lovely and well organised by the lovely Mary who has put in so much hard work and effort!

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.


*Rooms*

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…
