Peachy Victoria Sponge

(Sponsored Post)

I love a nice Victoria sponge. It's one of the first cakes I mastered as a teen and is often my 'go to' bake. I always make this one from scratch too and there's no packet mix in sight!

With the cold and dull days though I thought I'd make a nice Victoria sponge that could brighten the mood!

Fancy giving this a try?

Getting Ready For Mother's Day With FontBundles

(Sponsored Post)

With Christmas long gone, Valentines coming up and Pancake mix in the shops, it means Mother's Day is just around the corner!

It's time to give a great big hank you to the Mums (or stepmums, godmothers or mother type figures) in our lives. A bunch of flowers, a box of chocolates or a nice set of toiletries are the usual Mother's Day gifts, but there's a few other things you might want to consider.

A great way to show Mums how much you care and how appreciated they are is to give them something hand and homemade. Now, don't worry I'm not suggesting that you make a pasta necklace or something out of loo roll! We'll save that for the kids! But you could still make something!

Not a crafty type? Well, this is super easy, low cost and will be fun of thoughtfulness and love! How about a card like these?

Your Planet Needs You!!

(Collaborative Post)

When it comes to climate change and sustainable living, lots of people say that one person and their decisions will not make a difference.. The truth though, is that it could actually make a huge difference.

Something as simple as trying meat free Monday’s, ditching plastic bags or making sure you recycle properly, can help save the earth.

How To Recycle Your Wax Crayons


Our house is full of crayons. The pencil kind, the Twistable kind, the wax crayon kind. We use them all!!

Our little boy loves to colour so every single one gets used! Twistables can be used until every bit is gone and pencils can be sharpened, but what about wax crayons? They often break into two or three pieces and you usually end up with bits of wax crayon that are too small to use, even for the littlest of hands.

So, how can you make use of those bits of broken wax crayon? Well, you can make new ones!!!

Undeniable Benefits Of A House Move (Despite The Stress)

(Collaborative Post)

Okay, so we know the moving process can be stressful.

You have to spend months adding value to your home before selling up. You have to deal with mortgage advisors, estate agents, and solicitors. Plus, you'll have lots of boxes to pack, people to say farewell to, and a list of other jobs to do before making the move. After a while, you might ask yourself: Is it really worth it?
