Poppy is now in 2-3year clothing but still with a few 12-18months clothes depending on the shop they're from. I like to shop in next (during the sales), nutmeg in Morrisons, Matalan, h&m, sainsburys and some lovely bits from baby Gap.

Rainy Day Toddler Activities

Rainy day toddler activities,






 Due to the weather recently turning into the typical none existent summer, the rain is back, and in full force! For me this is really hard as I take poppy on walks every morning. When it's terrible weather though I like to keep her cosy in the warm. I've been getting some inspiration through Pinterest and one of them was this cute little idea. All you need is play-dough, food skewers, Cheerios and a child friendly surface. 
This project helps with their Learning colours, numbers, hand-eye coordination, patience and eating (the Cheerios, not the play-dough) at the same time. Poppy really enjoyed this project, you could see her concentration face was really adorable it also helps her speech as she was saying a few colours without us prompting her.  Honestly give this a go with your little ones, it's pretty fun.

Hope you enjoyed read

Festival Of Heroes 2017

"We are all mad here" 




When your a parent, you want nothing more then to see your little one smile, today poppy, my mum and I took a mini road trip to the Roman villa in Brading (iow). Yes, It was a road trip, it took an hour to get there #Islandlife. The festival of heroes was in aid of raising money for a local charity called the daisy chain charity. With many Disney character names announced on their Facebook page it seemed like a pretty good idea to take Poppy for the day. 




"Its always tea time" 
 it was another 40 minutes of queuing before we had even got in! But seeing poppys face light up at her favourite characters was rather special. She loved playing with the mad hatter, teasing him by taking his cups and pouring Alice invisible tea into hers! She was besotted with Belle, woody and jessy and gave a huge hug to Snow White. Although it was a pain in the arse with the travel and waiting to get in its the little moments like these that forget the bad ones.

Rhythm Tree 2017

Family friendly festival






Rhythm tree is a family friendly music festival with over 70 acts performing over the weekend. This included headline acts from lightning seeds, blockheads and more. Not only that but you also get free parking, free camping plus children go free too! The festival is situated at three gates farm on the Isle of Wight. With the music acts spread over 4 stages from mid day to evening, there's so much time to do stuff with the kids in between; face painting, rides, sand pit, Lego, messy play, carnival characters, the lady ship stage with children's entertainers dancing and signing, etc. It was our first festival together as a family, mine and Poppy's first ever festival! It was pretty special too as we also celebrated our 1 year wedding anniversary.






There was a wide variety of food stalls, boutique clothing stalls, jewellery, costume, henna including a massage parlour! I must admit all the food from the festival looked and smelled amazing! They had veg…

The Fairy Garden

A few weeks ago my family and I celebrated my sister Kerry's 28th birthday. My mum, Kerry and i went to the old thatch tea rooms in the old village of Shanklin (iow). The tea room is on the number 3 bus route, at the bottom of the old village. You can't miss it, the tea room is painted pink! Each room has its own theme it's very quirky, fresh and cosy until you're led outside by the friendly staff members. I was taken aback by the creative, enchanting and secluded garden, named the fairy garden. Everywhere you look there was more fairies, it's such a magical little place with big imagination. We ordered fresh scones with clotted cream, jam and a pot of tea. It only cost £4.95each this was very reasonable and possibly the best cream tea I've ever had. Next time we go we'll take Poppy as she will love it.   One of the best things about living on this island is the little treasures you find along the way, there's so much more around this little island, yo…

Messy Play in the Kitchen

If there is one thing your not too sure on in parenthood its letting your little ones go crazy wrecking your home with pens, paint and glitter! Splat messy play classes allow them to do just that. Children aged 6 months-4 years are able to play, imagine, explore, investigate and build friendships. Poppy has been improving her social skills while enjoying wet and dry sensory activities. Nettie the host brings a different theme each week, with 6 stations full of fun and mess. This week we had flour, mash potatoes and beans, tomatoes, dry pasta and glitter play-dough. I really recommend doing this for your little ones, they have so much fun. It also relaxes Poppy, she is so content and calm while having fun with her little friends...also she's less likely to trash the house when we get back. 
I hope you enjoyed the mess  Lots of love  Natasha  xXx
