10 Things I've Loved This Month

10 Things I've Loved In The Month Of March

  1. Poppy started sitting up independently.  (yay!)

  2. I began my Blogging journey and launched The Little Brews Blogspot!

  3. Zach did his very first wee on the potty. (Even if most of it ended up on the floor, still a huge leap for Zach)

Top Tips For Fake Tanning On A Budget

Before having children I enjoyed nights out with the girl's most weekends. A big part of going out was the getting ready before hand. I love dressing up and feeling glam it gives me a real confidence boost to just feel good about myself.

The Little Brews Week 16/3/14 - 22/3/14

The Little Brews Week

This week started of with us celebrating my sisters birthday! For this we enjoyed a nice lunch together in a lovely village pub. 
Zach being true to form had little appetite, but of course he enjoyed his chocolate ice cream pudding.
It also marked the day of St Patrick's Day. I hope anybody who celebrate St Patrick's Day had a fab time and made the most of a day of celebrations.

Poppy had a rough week again this week, yet again she was full of cold and has developed another pesky cough. She's the same as before see my previous Blog post Snotty Baby!
Snotty Poppy!
The teething genius!

We are not 100% sure, but believe the root of all these colds is teething. But still no sign of any teeth, we're checking everyday in hope that today is the day she finally has a tooth. Sophie Giraffe has been Poppy's best friend this week. That poor Giraffe sure can take some chewing and we are so grateful! Keep it up Sophie!

We took a trip with a friend to look and test out some pushchairs for when her little one arrives. Wow I forgot about the amount of choice there is, I don't envy her making that decision. I remember how hard I found  it both times when I was expecting The Little Brews. I found myself browsing for hours through reviews to try and help my decision.
My partner always jokes about how I check reviews for everything! I think they are the most truthful source you can get when it comes to making a new purchase. I even find myself leaving reviews now, I never used to bother before until I realised how much I valued other peoples opinions.

This week it felt like the weekend couldn't come fast enough just to have Gary home for two days. Zach spent his Saturday morning down the park feeding the ducks with his Daddy (One of Zach's favourite things to do and its free!) this always puts him in the best of moods. Me and Poppy stayed in and had some much needed cuddles as we were both feeling under the weather.


Me and Zach got all crafty this weekend and made his first ever Easter Bonnet. We love making things together and as he has a parade at pre-school coming up an Easter bonnet was a perfect craft to do over the weekend. All the supplies for the bonnet (Including the hat) we brought from Poundland I think over all I spent around £5 on everything. Check out our bargain make below.

After covering it with blue tissue paper Zach said he wanted a sunshine as it looked like a sky. He definitely knows what he likes! I never realised how hard it would be to get some bonnet inspiration but I think designing it using only our imagination worked well. We were both so happy with the finished result, he keeps showing it of to everyone who walks through the front door! I personally liked that we managed to get a trilby hat rather than a traditional bonnet shape.

 The rest of the day followed with some yummy home made fish and chips and a night in-front of the TV.

Sunday we ventured out to Oak Farm Park with the little brews auntie, uncle and two cousins. We had lot's of fun playing on the park and in the soft play. Unfortunately Poppy still wasn't 100% so spent most of the day snoozing.

This weeks favourite buy!

Just in Tesco doing the weekly food shop and spotted this beautiful little anchor dress for Poppy. Had to have it as soon as I seen it, it will be perfect for the spring :) and it's another thing added to the next size up pile.

All in all an OK week would have been nicer if we all felt a bit better, Bring on next week!

A toddlers diet...

Since writing my post about weaning Poppy I've been thinking a lot about Zachary's eating habits and how much they have changed since he reached 2! 
From weaning Zach up until the 2 year mark he had a brilliant appetite would eat just about anything that was put in front of him.
We was so pleased at how much he loved his food and people would always compliment us about how well he ate.

The Little Brews week

The Little Brews week...

So this is a little bit late as yesterday we had such a hectic day that a cosy night and film was what we needed to wined down :).

The start of the week began with us celebrating our nieces/cousins Heidi's 4th birthday!
We spent the day in a place called 360 play its like a soft play with a lot more to it and every time we go Zach has the time of his life! The day was filled with lots of running around and having fun with the kids who well and truly worn themselves out by the end of the afternoon.

Cakes, Fancy dress and Soft play!


This weekend we celebrated one of my Niece's birthdays! She turned 4 on Monday and to celebrate she had a Frozen themed birthday party! She is Frozen obsessed as are most little girls lol. Fancy dress was optional so I couldn't resist trying to find a fancy dress outfit to fit Poppy :). I already had Olaf in mind for Zachary as we had previously seen a costume when out shopping,I found it a lot easier to shop for Zach's size than Poppy's. Luckily I stumbled across lots of fancy dress costumes in Poppy's size on Ebay and I fell in love with an adorable Anna costume so that's what she got. It was lovely seeing  them dressed up. Unfortunately Zach being Zach he wouldn't sit for a photo with Poppy, but I managed to get a snap of him and the birthday girl herself Heidi (as Elsa).

Zachary and Heidi :)
