Winter Fashion Trends For Women 2017/18

The days are getting colder now. The other morning I had to de-ice my car at 5am before I could head to work! I wish I had a warmer coat on as well. So much for being organised!

I have been browsing online at the Winter clothes trends for women, hoping to get some inspiration for a new coat or jacket. The Winter fashion trends this season are chunky knitwear, the colour red, big hats and fancy footwear including knee high boots. All with a 70’s vibe. Checks and tweed patterns are also big this season.

Being a redhead the colour red doesn’t suit me. I’m more into greens/browns and turquoise shades of blue. If you saw my Autumn wardrobe checklist, it was mainly neutral colours and knitwear.

Your Garden Isn’t Just For Summer

A lot of people love to spend the whole of the summer in the garden, either tending to it or celebrating in it. In the UK we unfortunately don’t have too much good weather during the summer, but when we do we love to throw a damn good BBQ. Whilst the colder months aren’t really great for having a BBQ, there’s no reason why you still can’t enjoy the beautiful garden you’ve spent the summer in. There’s plenty of additions you can add that will create the perfect chill out zone, providing the weather isn’t raining!

Take a look at these additions and see which would suit your garden.

Top Tips On Car Seat Safety

*This is a sponsored post

Car seat safety is extremely important. Every year thousands of children around the world are injured or worse killed in car crashes. Keeping your child safe from harm is top on the list. It can be very overwhelming finding the best car seat on the market and also having it fitted correctly.

What car seat you require depends on the age of your child, the weight and type of car you have. A good tip is to make sure you fully understand how to fit the car seat before you bring your baby home from the hospital if you are expectant parents.

It’s better to keep your child rear-facing for as long as possible, until they are at least 2 years old. Baby girl is 21 months old now and we plan to keep her rear facing as long as possible.

Do you wanna build a snowman? – Itty Bittys from Hallmark

Ahh Frozen! Who doesn’t love the film? It’s on most days when my daughter is at her Grandma’s house! Baby girl absolutely loves it, much to my husband’s annoyance! She loves to dance and sing ( in toddler speak!) to it.

When we were challenged to build a snowman from Hallmark to celebrate the new Itty Bittys collection it was a little exciting! Hallmark have released a fantastic Frozen collection featuring Anna, Elsa, Olaf and Sven – all the fan favourites.

Frozen Itty Bittys from Hallmark

In our goody box from Hallmark was a whole host of delights. As well as the four Itty Bittys there was a couple of celebration cards – Frozen of course! a Frozen cupcake kit, and all the ingredients to make your very own snowman.

Top Tips For Posting Your Christmas Presents

No matter how beautiful and wonderful, Christmas can easily become a very stressful and busy time of year, especially with little ones to think about. The pressure of making sure that your festive gifts reach your loved ones before the big day, especially if they don’t live in the same area as you, is a worry that most of us experience every year. Fear not, there are solutions to these problems.

Top Tips on posting your Christmas presents

If you are planning on posting your Christmas presents, it is best to buy them and send them as early as possible, even if the recipient is slightly tempted to take a sneak peek at what you’ve bought them! If, like a lot of us, last minute shopping is inevitable, make sure to check the last delivery dates to avoid disappointment.
