A Little Bit Of Pampering With Your Massage Clinic


There are two things that I've decided to do more of over the last few months. One is to support more local and independent businesses. The other is to try and take a little time out to pamper myself and have some me time. Something to make me feel a little like my old self.

Pampering yourself at home though, isn't always easy. You have a soak in the bath and someone needs to use the loo. You pop on a face mask on and scare the kids.

So, when a brand new local business, Your Massage Clinic, asked me if I'd like to try a little bit of pampering, I of course said yes and did a little happy dance.

Dancing It Up With 44 Cats!!!

(Sponsored Post) 

We love a bit of a boogie in our house. Getting ready in the mornings, cooking dinner or just a dance round the kitchen, you will often find one of us playing music!! We all have a massively varied taste, as individuals and as a family.

But this can be a little bit of an issue! With massively varied playlists you have to be considerate of having a child in the house and make sure you pick the kid friendly tracks. Being home more over the last few weeks we've definitely being playing more music and we've found that sometimes our playlist, even the kids friendly ones can go off and start playing our favourite songs, which aren't always suitable for little ears. Especially when you really listen to the lyrics!!! 

So, we're filling our playlists with more kid friendly music!!

44 Cats - Toys To Rock Out To!!

[Sponsored Post]

Just before Christmas we shared our review of a brand new kids TV show, 44 Cats. At the time it was a bit of light relief from all things Christmassy and a change from Scooby Doo!! But we've continued to watch and enjoy the adventures of Lampo, Milady, Meatball and Pilou since and I'm excited to share that there's now 44 Cats toys too!!!

Celebrating World Book Day With Viking


World Book Day is just around the corner and there’s plenty of ways to join in. Be it dressing up, having a reread of your favourite book or getting crafty or creative, there’s plenty to do!

With this in mind the team at Viking have kindly gifted me a selection of craft items to get creative this World Book Day! There’s a great selection, including card, ink, an always handy Sharpie, letter stamps, a frame and plenty of other bits.

They asked for me to get crafty and create something using my favourite book and the items they provided for World Book Day and that’s exactly what I did with my copy of Peter Pan and Wendy.

Feeling The Love This Valentine's Day With Swizzels


February is finally here (hooray!), and it's time to feel the love as Valentine's Day is just around the corner. There's so much on offer in the shops and online when it comes to Valentine's Day gifts, but it can all be a bit samey! 

The same flowers, toiletries and sexy undies, but if like me you've been married for a while and together since time began, you might find yourself rolling your eyes at all the soppy stuff!! That said us long serving married folk still want a treat! Especially if it's a sweet treat!

Well, Swizzels, can fulfill all your sweet treat dreams with their hampers and Love Heart range.

Autism With Lola ~ Playing With Bourbon Badger


Reading is often the perfect way for children to explore new worlds and situations. Whether it be a book to tie-in with a school project or about welcoming a new sibling, or even a new pet, books can help children learn and become educated on different things.

Books like Autism With Lola - Playing With Bourbon Badger, can share a heartwarming tale and educate.

Creating A Keepsake Blanket With Sadiefranks

(Collaborate Post)

I've been weepy about it on Instagram. I've written about it here on my blog. I've sobbed about it to my husband. Parting with baby clothes has been emotional. Much more so than I thought. 

I sorted through the many bags into piles. Lots were sold, passed on and donated but I kept a few pieces. Some 'just in case' items and the all important sentimental bits. Intially, I have put these away but I don't want them to just sit there, all folded, probably creased, and nearly forgotten about.

Sorting Through The Baby Clothes With Sweet Pea Clothing

(Collaborative Post - Please note that I used Sweet Pea Preloved prior to this collab and this is an honest recommendation)

Saying goodbye to baby clothes is hard. Last year I realised how hard when I decided to take the first step in sorting through our son's baby clothes.

Now 5 years old, we have collected a stack of baby and children's clothes. Vest, babygros, cute outfits, we had storage bags full of them! Probably around 12, if not more! 

It was time to have a clear out and say goodbye.

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?

I Failed My 19 Books For 2019 Challenge!!

I failed!! The challenge I set myself to read 19 books for 2019 was unsuccessful. I only managed 4! 

But I'm all about honesty here at Mummy Snowy Owl and lets be honest it was a ridiculous challenge!

Solving A Childcare Crisis With

[Sponsored Post]

Childcare. It’s something that might not be on the top of your to do list when you find out your expecting. You browse prams, buy a cot and pick a cute coming home outfit for your new bundle of joy, but childcare might be on the back-burner until you think about going back to work or, gasp, have a night out!!

44 Cats

[Sponsored Post]

Kids are often little creatures of habit. The same snack after school, the same cuddly toy at bedtime and the same TV shows on repeat. With multiple TV channels and lots to choose from you'd like to think they'd watch lots of different things but no!

It's exactly the same here, and as we are on festive overload our TV watching is also Christmassy, but even for a Christmas superfan like me it can be a bit much! I probably shouldn't start so early!

As a bit of light relief we've been watching 44 Cats!

A Snowy Christmas Gift Guide ~ For The Interior Lover

[Sponsored Post]

Welcome to A Snowy Christmas Gift Guide! 

The second item on my Christmas gift guide is for the interior lover. Maybe a family member or friend that's renovating their home or someone that's spent ages looking for the perfect item to finish a room.

One way to make a room bigger, make it lighter and add a focal point is to add a mirror. So, if you have someone who is missing something in their newly decorated room, a mirror could be the perfect gift for them this Christmas.
