6 steps for a stress free Christmas | Collaboration 

We all know that there can be much to love about the festive period, but it’s not all good times,
Christmas lights, and presents. There’s a more negative aspect to the yuletide season, too: it can be
pretty stressful. With so much attention focused on this time of year and so many things to see and
do, it’s inevitable that some stress will creep in at some point. The good news is that there are things
you can do that’ll work to limit the stress factors. We take a look at six tried and tested tips below,
which will help ensure that your Christmas is nothing but fun, fun, fun.

Christmas Gift Guide for Him | Blog

Note - some of these items were sent to us for the purpose of this post but all opinions are honest and my own.

I can't quite believe that we are in December already!! Christmas shopping is in fully swing (unless you are super unorganised like my husband!!) and I am back with my last gift guide for 2019! Today it's all about the men and if the men in your life are anything like the ones in mine then you will struggle to buy them gifts. I never know what to get my brothers and Dad. Hubs isn't too bad but he still isn't easy. That is why I wanted to share with you my favourite finds for him this year.

Christmas Memories | Blog

Christmas has always been one of my favourite times of year. When I was little, Christmas was magical. I have so many wonderful memories that I am eternally grateful to my Mum and dad for because being a parent myself now, I know how stressful and exhausting Christmas can be and all you want it for it to be perfect for your kids. Mum and dad, if you're reading this then well done. You gave me a childhood full of Christmas magic and it has made me want to give my children the same warm, fuzzy feelings when they think back on their Christmases.

Dinner time for Maisie! | Hill' s Dog Food Review

Note: This dog food was sent to us for the purpose of this review but all opinions are honest and my own. 

Our Cockapoo pup is a bit of a madame when it comes to food. She always has been and I think she always will be. When we first brought her home we were feeding her the dry food that the breeder told us to give her. She would eat it but she would never scoff it down like dogs are known to do. Then as she started to get older, she started to get fussy and we thought it was just her being a pain in the bum. She stopped eating her dry food so we tried her on wet food. She loved it but we hated it as it stank, made her breath really smell and it was irritating her skin. She was licking herself like crazy so we took her to the vets who said that she had sensitive skin and it would be food that was affecting her skin. We tried to meet her in the middle and gave her dried food mixed in with some wet which she was okay with but she would leave some and would take a long time to eat it so we knew she didn't really like it. At the start of the year we learnt a bit about raw food as my mother in law had started giving her dog raw food. We tried it with Maisie and she loved it and it stopped her licking but it didn't seem to fill her up like the dry food did. We decided to just leave her on the raw food and see how she went. She loves it and her skin was doing really well but the only downside was the amount she was eating. This was why, when Hill's asked us if we wanted to try their Science Plan Sensitive Stomach & Skin Adult Dog Food with Chicken, I said yes!
