Sudocrem – Mummy Matters Week

9 Jan

Us mum’s can’t be super mum’s all of the time and every now and then, even we can do with a bit of advice!

That’s why the leading baby brand Sudocrem are hosting a Mummy Matters week over on Facebook, as to be honest… Us mum’s do matter!

Between Monday 9th & Friday 13th January 2012, a team of the UK’s leading lifestyle experts will be sharing need to know advice on a range of subjects as well as answering direct questions from the Sudocrem Facebook community.

Each day will host a different expert (as outlined below), who will share around 20 key pieces of advice and answering questions on their subject throughout their allotted day.

Sudocrem would love for all Mums to join the Sudocrem Facebook community (www.facebook.com/Sudocrem) and get involved by asking questions directly to the experts.

I’m a mummy but I still have hopes and dreams.

29 Oct


I don’t normally participate in blog prompts, however, I had to write this post having been Inspired by the fabulous Britmums and there blogging prompt of the week.

  So the prompt? 

What are your hopes and dreams for the future

 Now, I read quite a few of the post, written by my fellow mummy bloggers and although they were all great post written by some excellent bloggers, I felt most had the same dream, for their children to be happy or successful! 

Now before I put my size 5 heels in it, of course I want the same thing for my own children, what mother wouldn’t? However, don’t you think our own mothers wanted the same for us? Therefore, don’t we owe it to them, to fulfil our own hope’s & dreams, or at least try?

 I’m not stating that it’s wrong to have hopes for our children, I have a string of them, the list is as long as my arm, I want them to be happy and healthy above all else. If my children are successful then that’s great, but the happiness & health is what matters to me most! However, I do hold dreams for myself too and I owe it to my own mother as well as my children to a least try to fulfil a few of them!

Yes, like many, my hopes and dreams have changed with age, but I still have some nonetheless. I hope that one day I will be able to complete a law degree, I hope to write a book, a book that will help and inspire other parents who like myself have a child on the autism spectrum. I hope to get my ideas out there in the big wide world, have my own brand maybe, one that takes off and becomes a raving success. I hope that my children look at what I achieve and feel somewhat inspired to live their own dreams, and do so for themselves amongst all others. 

And if all the above don’t happen? Well, at least I can say I tried and really that’s all that counts!

My children won’t need to be pop stars or actors, just good people who know what they want and set about making it happen. I look at where I am as a 29 year old woman and there is so much I wish I had already done. Yes, Life is busy and I’ve already ticked a few of the boxes by becoming a mother to three awesome children, but I like to think I’m more than just a mother and hope on day I’ll be able to prove that to the world. 

Life is full of amazing and inspirational people, you don’t have to be a film star, published author or spend your life doing things for a good cause to be an inspiration! The secret, I believe is, “motivation” you have to know what you want and chase it like there’s no tomorrow, If you don’t succeed then at least you know you tried and that’s what makes a mother proud.

Hopes and dreams are not handed to you on a platter, you work for them! I’d love to win the lottery and buy a beautiful house to leave my children when I’m all dead and buried, but it wouldn’t be half as satisfying as having earn that house, don’t you agree?

I have a whole bundle of hopes and dreams for myself and that of my children. I want more from life as it has so much more to offer. 

I am thankful for what I have, but there is no shame in wanting that bit more, if you don’t want for nothing then that’s great, but if you do, then why not chase it and make it happen. We are never to old for dreams, and who says dreams can’t become a reality? 

Well, I’m not ready to give up on trying for mine, regardless of being a parent, I want my children to look up to me, there is little shame in that!

If you want to reach for the stars, then reach!

It’s only you who can make it happen. 

Ajo Bebe changing bag candy

29 Oct

This week we see the Little helpers go from three to four, when the lovely Nikki from, ‘A cat, a mouse and a bumblebee’ sent me a beautiful Ajo Bebe travel wipes case to review.

A cat, a mouse and a bumblebee is an online store specialising in high end children’s and baby products.

Nikki the owner stocks some beautiful items that are available no place else in the UK, she even hosts a number of celebrity favourites. 

The Ajo Bebe travel wipes case is a lush addition to any changing bag and will have mothers asking you,

“Excuse me, but where did you get that from”

Oh… Yes, this pretty little case happens to be a great tool for a conversation starter, believe me, it’s happened to me twice so far! There was last week when I was asked in the doctors reception waiting area (yes, during that week from hell when all three children were ill) then there was the time a fellow mummy asked me where I got my Ajo Bebe travel wipes case while at the the under five’s play park. You can’t blame these mummy’s for asking as it is lovely! 

“Ok, Ok, I hear you, it is just a wipes case!”

 But surly us mummy’s deserve a pretty one, after all wet wipes are our ultimate travelling companion. With a 22m old I can’t afford to leave these essentials at home! Yes, its pretty sad that I’ve enjoyed whipping out my cute little travel case every time Harley gets sticky fingers, a runny noise or chocolate covered chops, but so what… it’s nice to have something nice, isn’t it? It beats pulling out a pain old pack of Huggies that’s for sure!

 The green and aqua blue, almost art deco design finished with white lace trimming is the perfect design for a girlie girl who likes something other than “Pink” !

Priced at £19.99 it’s a pretty cool addition to any mummy’s Christmas wish list. You could even consider buying it for that “special mum to be” as a baby shower gift (trust me, it beats your standard baby-grow).

There are plenty of beautiful children’s & baby items to be found over at ‘A cat, a mouse and a bumblebee’ from cool bumblebee backpacks to gorgeous baby blankets. This is a site worth visiting, even if you will want everything you set your eyes on, I did!

Nikki owner of ‘A cat a mouse, and a bumblebee’ is currently looks for party planners to join her team! Check out the site then contact Nikki for more information via the contact page.
