Tutti Frutti Designs Greeting Cards Giveaway

I always try to be organised and have a box of greeting cards available for last minute birthdays and occasions. Being a busy mum I forget to buy cards at times so keeping a little selection readily available has kept me out of trouble with the family many of times!

So when Tutti Frutti Designs got in contact asking me to have a look at their selection of greeting cards I thought why not? I love to support smaller independent business and help them get their products “out there”.

Floral Initial Baby Print Review

Since we moved house last year, I have been looking around for prints, photos and pictures for my daughters room. We obviously left behind her decorated nursery which was fine for the first 18 months of her life, but since we moved here we haven’t decorated her room with the baby stick on stickers.

So the opportunity to have a print designed for her was great. Created by Magic sent us this gorgeous floral Initial baby print, all with her birth details on. All I had to do was send the correct details, like her first name, date of birth, hospital, weight and time of birth over to them and by magic! The print arrived in the post!

The Little Red Airplane Review and Giveaway

I work regularly with Austin Macauley publishers and this month we have received this gorgeous little book to review – The Little Red Airplane by Heather May-Warren. As you know from all of our book reviews we love to have reading time everyday and this past week we have thoroughly enjoyed The Little Red Airplane.

The Little Red Airplane by Heather May-Warren

Book Description

On a picnic at the beach Elly finds a little toy airplane. It is sad and broken and needing a home, but not for long. Soon the little plane is fixed up, painted, and named Red to match his shiny new paint. Red loves living with Elly and her family, and meeting the animals who live with them, but when Mother Hen’s chick goes missing what can he do to help his new family?

Living Arrows 12/53 (2018)

Welcome back to our little weekly round-up of Living Arrows 12/53 (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!

You can catch up on last week’s post here : Living Arrows 11/53.

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”

Where to Place the Hot Tub in your Garden

Hot tubs are a home accessory that was previously only for the extremely wealthy. You might have been lucky enough to enjoy one in a luxury hotel room. But for the most part they just weren’t an accessory most people could previously afford. Since demand has increased, hot tubs are much more of an affordable luxury and now there are over 300,000 households with hot tubs in the UK, compared to around 100,000 in 2013.

The many benefits of a hot tub are much more recognised and people have hot tubs for socialising, for muscle therapy, for relaxation and as an addition to a swimming pool set up.

There are various different types of hot tub available, including free standing hot tubs, built in hot tubs and even extremely inexpensive blow up hot tubs you can purchase from supermarkets.

Homes are now much more likely to have a hot tub, which presents a whole new area of home decor consideration. Just as you have to plan out how a swimming pool works in relation to a house, or an outdoor seating area, you have to put equal planning into your new, hot, bubbling arrival.

Where will it go? Can it be placed on any surface? How far away from the house should it be? Will it look nice?

Take a look at these handy hot tub placement Q&A’s to help you get your hot tub installation absolutely right:
