    6 fantasy modes of transport that we’d all love to experience

    Ever find yourself staring out the train window and daydreaming? Like you’re barely taking anything in the real world in. It captures us all from time to time, and as busy as I’ve been lately, a little reprieve from reality has been pretty welcome. I’m a little jealous of the little ones, whose minds are still open to other ways of getting around. But then I thought, hey – why should they have all the fun?! Imagine if some of the other ways of travelling from movies, books, games and other media were made real. If that sounds outlandish, don’t forget that blimps very nearly took off as a major…

    Throw on summer dresses for busy mums

    Lately I’ve got the summer vibe and have been looking into summer dresses. I want some that I can throw on when it’s a hot day as I know I’ll be running around after the children but I still want to look nice and feel a bit feminine. I’m also looking forward to my summer holiday so I’d like a few dresses that I can pack that will work for lots of different occasions. It’s so much easier with a dress as you only have to decide on the one thing to wear and not worry too much about what goes with what. Here are some of the favourite summer…

  • Why I chose to be a work at home mum

    Before I had kids I always imagined myself as a career woman. Over the years I moved from one job to another depending on where I lived. I worked as Human Resources Specialist, Warehouse Manager and in my last field as a full time job in Supply Chain Management. When my youngest was born and we moved closer to my parents I knew that none of the jobs mentioned above was possible. Thankfully, I already started to have a little bit of income through this blog which help greatly for a mum of two young children with her husband working away. However, at the moment advertising and sponsored posts through my…

  • A mother’s guide to making space in the home

    Taking care of the family and the home is always a lot of fun, but one issue that I am sure is familiar to all parents is how to make the most of whatever space we have in the home. And so I thought that I would compile a little list of some of the best ways that you can create a little extra space by using ottoman beds, going vertical and implementing special space-saving zones. I love ottoman beds by the way! They are great to hide stuff like blankets, duvets and extra pillows. Zonal living It’s a weird concept but I’ve found that if I divide a room…

    How to design a lively and fun children bedroom

    My girls don’t have a huge bedroom at the moment. We thought our house renovation will go a lot smoother and faster. It didn’t happen but we tried to make it as fun as possible for now by arranging it as they wanted and by building their furniture in their favourite colours.  They love their room despite being very small and I thought I’d share our top tips with you too!  Decorate using your child favourite colours. Or include them in the plans. His favourite colour might be black and you might have to work hard to make it work. Although a black board / chalk board where he can…

    The role of Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services

    A while ago I was writing here about my concerns regarding depression in children. As a sufferer(since I was a child)  I am always on the look out for any signs in my two little girls. My youngest is too little but every now and then I am scared that my eldest will go on the same path with me. She seems to worry a lot about everything and she has moments when she just wants to be alone way too often. While researching about depression I came across CAMHS and I was happy to see how it helps parents and children through this bad illness that is depression. Child and Adolescent Mental…

    Ways to Celebrate the Woman in Your Life

    Spring is getting closer and closer, which means that the time to celebrate women across the world is near. In Romania, we celebrate the arrival of spring on 1st of March by giving small presents to the women in our life. These presents could be something small called “martisor” or simply a bouquet of flowers. Everybody is to receive a gift – from the youngest to the eldest. I remember that when I was a child, my dad use to buy my sister and I snowdrops, and freesias for my mum.   It was a nice way to start spring, and as freesias are my mum’s favourite flowers she was always really…
