In two weeks time, I’m going to be exhibiting at the National Wedding Show at the NEC. My partner in crime, Natalie, convinced me to “Go big or go home” and so that’s what’s happening! These are the biggest shows around and so it’s a little nervewracking that this is my first wedding fayre experience (not counting that time I had a table at a local hotel!). It has taken over our lives the last few weeks, I’m even dreaming about the wedding show!  There has been *so* much to think about and organise and thank goodness for Natalie who thinks of things that wouldn’t even have crossed my mind. My requirement was that the stand “Looks pretty” and I didn’t even think of the practicalities. I *think* we’ve thought of everything though and I’m excited/nervous/terrified to get everything set up ready and to see the artwork and sample products. No doubt I’ll be spamming your Instagram feeds with photos (might want to unfollow me now).

I have a pair of tickets to giveaway so if you’re a blushing bride or if you just like all things wedding (who doesn’t?!), make sure you enter! And if you are going along on 4th-6th March, please come and say hello, you can find us over at stand J29. We have marshmallows (unless I get to them first) and we have a really fun giveaway planned too! I also just ordered a thousand leaflets so would really appreciate it if you’d come and take one.

Some wedding spam for your viewing pleasure


colour me fun-001colour me fun-002I’m excited to feature some products from one of my friends, Dannie from Colour Me Fun, on the blog today. Dannie is a mum of 3, master crocheter and bespoke crayon maker. Really, it’s a thing. All the cool kids are loving bespoke crayons these days and Dannie’s creations (and her husband, we’ll give him a little of the credit, too) have featured in various magazines and been seen in oodles of gift guides. I got to snap some of her latest crayons, which included some of her best selling name crayons. My son always looks at the personalised gifts in shops but given that he has an unusual name, never finds it so is THRILLED to have his name in crayons. And sister is happy to have anything her brother’s got and being able to draw with it is a bonus!

I’m really excited to start half term off with a giveaway! Each month Bump PR team up with 5 bloggers to host a blogtrail and giveaway and I’m thrilled to be taking part in February’s. The theme for this month is Fun To Learn and you have the opportunity to win some fab educational toys and games for your kids.

We’re giving away a Seedling “Colour The Earth” kit. It’s such a fun idea, first you colour in with the markers included and then inflate it with a bike or ball pump into a beach ball sized globe which you can use to display or play. Just fill in the details below to be in with a change of winning (UK entrants only though, I’m afraid)

Little Dude thinks it looks “awesome”.

On the subject of fun learning, I’ve been making an effort with Sunshine to do more structured activities together lately. I’m finding since she’s turned 2 that she is easily bored and a trip to the shop and occasionally, the other shop, just isn’t enough to keep her entertained. We’ve been doing some Montessori activities (thank you Pinterest), mainly because I love to say the word “Montessori” and I find it’s something that really works for us.
