Poppy's frozen theme birthday

2nd Birthday Party 

It's been a week since we celebrated our daughter's second birthday party at Sandown pier on the isle of wight. Our close friends and family members joined us and my sister took all the pictures. so I've been waiting to show you all the lovely photos From Poppys 2nd birthday.

Let's start off with the sweet table... all the party bags were filled up with frozen themed goodies for the kids. All the adults complimented the table full of treats saying what a great job we had done. I like to make a huge effort especially for birthdays! I brought the snowflake fabric cheap from the fabric shop, the cake was from Thorntons, the castle on top was part of the M&S easter range and Anna and Elsa are actually Disney infinity characters. The sweets and little party bags were from Sainsbury's and Morrison's.

We decided to put on a cream tea like buffet for the adults with scones, sandwhiches, crisps, party rings, etc and the plates and napkins both from pounland.
We also put together a pass the parcel for the kiddies that they really enjoyed. Each layer was wrapped up in sparkly tissue paper matching the theme of the party and stuffed with mini gifts of frozen themed hair clips and Crayons.

The first half of the party was led with a huge soft play area at magic island in Sandown pier. The kids loved every minute playing in the ball pit and going down the slides, having fun, that's what birthday party's are all about! After an hour or so we all began to head to the food table for lunch it was a big success as we barely bought any of it back home.... bonus! 

When it came to singing happy birthday and cutting the cake, all the kids were fully on hyper mode. They loved every minute! It was also lovely spending time with family. I was chatting to everyone I could but it's hard at get togethers, there is so much going on.
Poppy was spoilt rotten and we are greatfull for every gift she recieved.

I hope you enjoyed the party 
Lots of love

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 s

Money saving Hacks | Christmas | 2020 edition |

It's that time of the year...   Remembering all the kids Christmas activities, nursery and school nativity plays, Christmas gift shopping, scheduling friends and family to come over during the holidays, teacher gifts, phonics, cooking the Turkey....   1- Plan Christmas a year to 6 months in advance  I know this sounds nuts but honestly knowing what is happening and who you're visiting makes it a lot easier and less stressful.  2- Buy gifts in the boxing day and January sales. Buy and stock up throughout the year on all the sales. It's amazing how much money you can save by doing this. I manage to save up to £200/£300 by doing this each year.  3- The things you don't think of buying in those sales. Wrapping paper, christmas cards, tape, gift tags, gift bags, Christmas arts and crafts for the kids, stickers, advent calendars (the non-chocolate ones) I brought the Harry Potter charms bracelet advent calendar and frozen 2 advent calendar in Sainsburys

5 creative ways to make extra money

1- sell unwanted items Is it time to do a clear out? Need a little extra money? Sell those trousers you've not worn in 3 months and sell the dress you've only worn twice.  Make sure all items are washed, no marks and no rips etc... these are all things that will help you in the selling process. Take lots of photos of the items, compare on other selling sites to make sure you check out your competitors. Good places to sell are facebook pages, Ebay, depop, Amazon, car boot sale and friends or family  2- creative skills  Are you creative with woodwork, clay, jewellery making, etc... if so put these hobbies into a place online and sell them! Don't forget to charge for materials, hours per day, time to take photos and uploading,etc. 3- teach another language  If you have a second language then good on you, another skill to write down on your cv! Launch a new website of what you can provide, zoom language classes, work sheets, online courses, etc. Make it clear on what you can pr
