Welcome back to our little weekly round-up of Living Arrows 9/53 (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 8/53.
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”
Are you thinking about what the interior design trends for 2018 are? With Spring on the horizon, (she says when we are in the middle of The Beast from the East!) it’s time to think about those spring cleaning jobs. Like sprucing up the house and planning in time to redo those areas that need attention. You may be thinking of replacing your kitchen or flooring, or even redoing the bathroom. Browsing the web for creative inspiration is a good place to start.
Lots of luxurious textures, and bright tones are big this coming year. Including glittery golds, ice-cream pastel shades and zingy colour pop colours.
Running a blog is one of the most satisfying and enjoyable things that you can do. After all, what could be better than spending your time writing about the things that you love and that you’re really passionate about? Of course, most of us live pretty hectic and full lives so the idea of setting aside a lot of time and effort to work on something that really doesn’t function as much more than a hobby can be kind of difficult to justify, but do you want your blog to be more than a hobby?
What if you wanted to take your blog and turn it into something more than just a hobby?
What if you wanted to take that passion and turn it into a career?
Well here are a few things that you need to do if you want to get started.
One of baby girl’s first phrases was “cup of tea?” So being asked to share our thoughts on the Mr Kipling Tea Set was perfect! I’m a huge fan of Mr Kipling’s cakes, French Fancies being my favourite although Cherry Bakewells come a close second. Mmmm shame I don’t have any in the kitchen cupboard at the moment!
Everyone adores Mr Kipling’s cakes! Featuring replicas of the much-loved cakes including French Fancies, Battenberg and Cherry Bakewells for arranging on the two-tiered cake stand. Each cake features a shaped bottom for children to locate the correct corresponding shape on the easily assembled cake stand – so not only is it a fantastic role play toy, it has shape-sorting fun too!
Everyday baby girl is learning so much about books, she has now started to use her finger and pointing along as we read. She will also pick up a picture book at random times and I can see her concentrating as she’s looking through it.
When we were asked to have a browse through The Book People’s website and choose a book from their “Hand -picked Picture Book Selection” I thought about getting her some fun rhyming books. The hand-picked selection has many books to choose from. You have the likes of the Julia Donaldson picture book collection as well as old favourite MOG. In fact there is something for everyone’s tastes.
