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

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…
