Life Right Now

It's so nice to be back in front of my laptop. It's been a while. Nearly two months! So what's been happening? 


We Need To Talk

I've been trying to put off writing this post for some time. It's time now!

You may have noticed that I've been really quiet on the blog for a few weeks. I've decided to take a little blogging break and rather than just disappear I wanted to try and explain as best I can.

Life is crazy busy right now. It's like there is a party going on in my head 24/7. My mind is racing and operating at full speed all the time. Constantly. Even my dreams are stressful! I feel like I have no spare brain capacity left and I need to de-prioritise a few things for a short while so I can get some time back.

Little Bump Shop is busier than ever and needs more of my time so it's the blog that I'm deciding to back off with just for a short while.


Party Bags & Supplies: Review & Giveaway (Closed)

We're at the start of party season in my house. Over the next 3 months we will celebrate my birthday, my husbands birthday, wishing my brothers happy birthdays from across the pond and we will be celebrating many special little people's birthdays all the way up until Baby Girl's 2nd birthday on August 21st.

I do love an event. So being that it's the lead up to summer and we have so many special occasions to celebrate I really do look forward to this time of the year.

It was great timing when Party Bags & Supplies got in touch and asked me if I wanted to check out some of their products. After having a browse through their website I loved the look of their huge range. They cater for all kinds of parties from baby showers, kids, teens and adults. There's so many options for different themes and you can get anything from invites, tableware, balloons, filled party bags and so much more.

Sunday Mini Styles #50

This is the 50th edition of Sunday Mini Styles. Fifty! That's over a year of blogging about Baby Girl's favourite outfit of the week, nearly every single week. That's a lot!

I've decided that this week is going to be the last week of Sunday Mini Styles. Next time I post a mini outfit it will be #MinisWardrobe. Nothing much will change but I decided that I didn't want to limit Baby Girl's outfit posts for Sunday so I felt this a fitting name change to tie in with a few changes coming up on the blog. Here's this week's outfit:

H&M body suit  |  Zara jeans  |  Cotton On Bag  |  River Island Sandals 

A #MinisMeals Update

Welcome back to #MinisMeals. This little weekly meeting place designed to offer you the inspiration you may need to feed your family with good food. I can hardly believe that last week was already the fourth instalment.

My Talking Toddler At 21 Months

My little girl is exactly three months off two years old. I've written before about the emotions that I feel when facing the reality that my baby is growing up. And let me tell you, it hasn't got any easier. I don't think it ever will.


Sunday Mini Styles #49

Today's outfit is one of those ones where I had to stop and consider if it felt a little too 'old' for Baby Girl. However when I put the pleather jeggings on her and she absolutely loved them (I think it was the texture), I decided it was a winner. The combo of the threads, the sandals, the sunnies and her little fro bunched at the top of her head is just too cute.

A Day With: Dear Bear And Beany

A Day With: Is a fun series I am running on the blog. I love 'day in the life' style mummy posts. They are fun to read and interesting to see the way different mums manage their days. I think all mummies are superheroes  We all have our own challenges with managing our lives and running our households, but we get through it and that should be celebrated.

Today's guest is the very sweet Laura from Dear Bear And Beany. Laura is married to her love Andy and together they have two gorgeous girls a three and one year old both who have birthdays coming up. You could be mistaken for thinking Laura is a veteran when reading her fabulous blog but in reality she only just began it in Jan 2016. Laura writes about being a mum, pregnancy, family life and their adventures and loads more.

Laura's day starts super early and she tells me this is a regular thing. It's so lovely to hear how the two sisters interact with each other, especially as they are so close in age. I'm sure they are going to be best friends for life. It makes me feel like I want a sister for Baby Girl. Thank you for sharing your day with us Laura, you nailed it! :)

Recipe: Strawberry Ice Pops With A Twist

Today I'm going to let you in on one of my secrets.

A recipe so simple that anyone could follow it. An ice pop that creates a flavour explosion in your mouth AND it's healthy.

I started my mission to create the perfect ice lolly recipe when they became something that would soothe Baby Girls teething pain. There were couple of nights when her molars were coming through and no amount of bonjella, anbesol, nurofen or calpol would ease her pain, stop her screaming and get her back to bed. I decided to try something cold to numb the pain and pulled an ice lolly from the back of the freezer. This offered her instant relief so I decided I needed to make my own sugar free, healthy ice treats to heave some healthy ones at hand whenever we need it.
