Lemonfresh UK: Nenuco Baby, Household and Cleaning Products Review

As you know we love trying out new products. Well the past few weeks we have been testing out this great range of Nenuco baby, household and cleaning products from stockists Lemon Fresh UK. Nenuco are a popular brand in Spain and are known for their gorgeous lemon and fresh smelling products. I can totally see why now!

Lemon Fresh UK pride themselves on providing outstanding genuine Nenuco products, (it’s a popular brand so there are fake products around!) very keen and competitive pricing and of course the highest levels of customer service. They will deliver to anywhere in the UK and if you order before 12 noon Monday-Friday they will dispatch to you the same day. That’s some very speedy delivery!

Child Friendly Holiday Destinations For New Parents

The Summer holidays are now here so it’s the best chance to make the most of spending quality time together as a new family. Yet where to you go on holiday with babies and toddlers?

With the help of Babythingz — a leading UK supplier of cute cosytoes for prams and buggies — we’ve discovered the top child-friendly holiday destinations for you to choose from, as well as tips for travelling with young ones.

Cornwall

I would have to list my home county as the top child friendly destination of course, due to its beautiful coastline with peaceful and exciting spots to discover. With it still being within the UK it’s easier to cut down on travel time, especially if you have a fussy baby.

There are lots of secluded holiday cottages to let down here which are great for families with crying babies and boisterous loud toddlers. If you choose accommodation close to the beach it’s practically a free day out also. Cornwall has lots of places visit like Newquay Zoo and the Minack Theatre, which is based in Porthcurno and features comedy puppet shows for kids.

Child Friendly Holiday Destinations For New Parents - Perranporth Cornwall

You also have The Eden Project and Dairyland to explore and have fun. But for me the best place to visit in Cornwall is the beach. Cornwall has many beaches with different facilities at each. My favourite is Perranporth, not only is it just 10 minutes from my house but it’s very child-friendly as well. The car park is literally beside the beach so great with the kids. It’s a very sandy beach with a pub on the beach as well as a restaurant and a little bistro overlooking the sea.

Living Arrows 30/53 (2018)

Welcome back to our little weekly round-up of Living Arrows 30/53 (2018). I’m enjoying getting into the routine of sharing a little bit of our life and how my gorgeous 2 year old is growing away so fast along with the new baby!

You can catch up on my last post here: Living Arrows 29/53.

The idea behind Living Arrows is to celebrate childhood. It’s name is taken from a poem by Kahlil Gibran,

“You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth”

A Miner’s Cottage Renovation Project Part 1

It’s coming up for 4 months since my dad passed away. He and my mum had lots of plans on decorating and revamping their old miner’s cottage, that was built in the 1800’s. Sadly he will never get to see the work done on it., but my older sister and I are going to help mum to carry on with the work that needs doing. Dad would have wanted it finished and it will be a nice change for mum.

A Miner's Cottage Renovation Project

The thing about miners cottages is that they are not the biggest of houses. Back in the day when the tin mines were working in the area my parents live in, many men, women and children all lived together under the same roof. When Mr B visits he has to duck his head otherwise he will hit the beams in the ceiling. So you have to look outside the box as to where you can save space. One of the ways to save space is to have bespoke stairs fitted from a staircase manufacturers. Dad was always going on about having a spiral staircase put in he always liked the look of those.
