This past week I have been testing out the latest toy craze of Glam Goo. Yes you heard that right, using goo or slime if you wish to decorate accessories. I suppose it’s kind of a crafty thing but ending up with surprisingly cool items kids can wear or take around with them.

“Slime gets a sprinkle of glitter with Glam Goo customisable and wearable slime”

I had great fun with the two packs of Glam that was sent over to review. First up is the Glam Goo fantasy pack.

This past week I have been reading The Lost Hat: Picnic Adventures Part One to baby girl. It’s the first book in the Kitty Katz Club series by Sarah Milne.

The fascinating thing about this book is that it has an accompanying CD. Throughout the book it tells you when to listen to the appropriate track at that point. I love the interactive way this book brings music and words together.

I remember when I was young getting home late from working evenings and popping a Rustlers burger in the microwave to fend off the hunger. It’s been a while since I’ve had one. So when the Rustlers Burger Hacking challenge came up with Britmums I thought I’d give it a go with the family.

See what we can come up with to turn an on the go snack which to be honest is more associated with students and people in a rush than families into a meal for the whole family. I will take on the challenge!!

With Spring on the way, soon I hope! It will be time to get back on the bikes and go out exploring the gorgeous Cornish countryside. One thing I have never thought of having was a bicycle first aid kit. With so many cars on the roads I believe it’s much safer to go off-road on the bikes. But it is inevitable that everyone will need to ride on the road at some point.

SJ Works got in contact with me a few weeks back asking if I would like to have a look at their bicycle first aid kit. I thought this would be a good time to get prepared for the sunnier, warmer weather that should be arriving shortly.

Welcome back to the latest installment of New Mum Stories. This week I’m happy to share Nicola’s story from Mummy to Dex. Nicola tells us all about her baby led parenting style when it comes to sleepy time.

New Mum Stories: Mummy To Dex

Over to you Nicola…

Finding your feet as a new Mum is totally and utterly overwhelming. No amount of groundwork could have prepared me for coming home with my new bundle of joy, feeling as if my vagina had just done ten rounds with Mike Tyson, completely exhausted after a long labour with the added pressure of trying to get feeding established and trying to do whatever I could to look after this tiny human.
