Playroom Pinspiration

I think everyone turns to Pinterest when looking for decor ideas (or new hairstyles/baking/makeup/crafts/everything else). Many lost hours have been spent in the never-ending hole of house goals. I do put a lot of effort into one room though – the boy’s playroom. I tend to lean towards the fun and colourful designs. Here are some of the photos in my Playroom…

Chocolate chip flapjacks | Recipe

There are more flapjacks consumed in my house than hot dinners I think. Anytime I make these they are lucky to last 24 hours before being devoured. I thought I would share my super easy, but slightly messy recipe for chewy chocolate chip flapjacks. Ingredients: 200g of butter 200g of sugar 6oz of golden syrup 400g of porridge oats Method:…

One Month Update | Finn

It’s 5 weeks since Finn was born – 5 weeks?! Seriously where has the time gone. In one way he still feels brand new but it also feels like he was always here. Now don’t get me wrong we are still very much learning and adapting to our new dynamics but luckily it has been going well so far. Within…
