Gro Anywhere Blind Review

In exchange for my Gro Anywhere Blind review, the Gro Company kindly gifted me the product. You must be as bored of hearing it as I am of saying it – the Devil Pixie is so-called for her lack of interest in sleep. Granted, I did recently rave about the wonderful Gro-Clock, and it is true that it has helped a great deal. So admittedly,  ...

Thankful Thursday #43

It’s that time again already – almost the weekend! Which for the majority of my readers means it’s very nearly time to not have a day off, and not have a lay in. *Smiles wryly* It’s also the time of the week I take a moment to muse on my fortuity and count my blessings (here’s why if you missed week #1). Here are a few more reasons I have been  ...

So, You Want to Publish an eBook? 

So you’ve written a book, huh? I bet you never thought you’d get there, am I right? And now, the obvious next step is to hit publish and then cross your fingers that there’s a you-like hole in the literary world just waiting to eat up your words and make you famous. Or at least rich (though both would be nice). So  ...

My Family Holiday Bucket List

I know it’s still only mid November, but in a blogger’s world it’s necessary to always be thinking two months ahead. So by that logic it’s more than acceptable for me to be talking about the ‘C’ word, right? Well, either way, with the Pixie Devil being the perfect age to embrace the festivities this year – and we really have  ...

Baby Led Weaning Tips and Tricks!

Once upon a time, before I had a real baby and a blog baby, I was a bit of a clean freak. Think Monica in Friends – I wasn’t quite that bad, but I did once have a genuine meltdown because the house wasn’t clean enough and I didn’t have the time to make it spotless. Out of necessity, I’ve relaxed a little. Don’t get me wrong, if there  ...

Similac Growing Up Milk Review

I’m very vocal about my advocacy of breastfeeding – so much so that I recently wrote about the fact I’ve published an ebook on the subject (shameless plug!). But what happens when your breastfeeding journey reaches its natural conclusion? It’s probably not such a dilemma for those who stop breastfeeding before the age of one, or those  ...
