Life Lately

First of all, can we address my coat obsession? Will there ever be a time I don't get to Autumn, swear to myself I have enough already and then find one that makes you feel like you're wearing candy floss and a big warm hug all at once?! (FYI this one is from H&M!)
Even when your husband tells you that your arms will be cold, it's not waterproof, looks too big and doesn't even have any buttons?! I often wonder that my most favourite pieces in my wardrobe are Tom's most hated ;) ... take this pinafore for example..the one that I discovered through my friend Erica's site and was then told by said husband made me look amish..

Can we also address the fact that my baby smashed my DSLR on the floor and broke my lens (my fault for putting it so close to little hands to reach) and then my laptop broke on the same day? I'm not sure what my technology is doing to me right now but I'm going back to phone blogging and y'know what? I kinda like it in a nostalgic way! Me and a friend were chatting the other day about about blogging, about how it used to be the shy, awkward and the unsociable who'd start blogs and online friendships (I'm talking about myself here, I pretty much am the biggest awkward person ever). Remember when things like internet dating used to be something that people would snigger about? Now the world is online and blogging is taking over magazines and YouTube is taking over TV. I find it fascinating!

On the subject of YouTube I'm getting more into it and I made my first 'tag' video the other day if you fancy a watch.. and if you like what you see and fancy subscribing that would really mean a lot to me too! Talking baby names is one of my favourite things EVER, I'd love to know what your favourite names are, I actually wrote a post about this early in the year too! I'm currently planning a whole load of cats in our future with the below names..

Ok so this Duplo castle won't built itself, I'm off to help my little family build the biggest one ever before bath and bedtime, wish me luck ;) Speak soon!

Half Term with Disney Life

I am a DisneyLife Brand Ambassador and this post was created in partnership with DisneyLife who have provided me with a free 12 month DisneyLife membership.

With Wilf's first half term since starting school approaching, I am beyond excited about having my little boy to myself again. I missed him so much – more than I expected, funnily enough – and both me and his little sister are honestly just happier when we are all together again. The first school term has totally wiped him out though, so instead of planning any big trips over the break we are going to take it a little easier and instead organise a few activities closer to home as well as some much needed duvet days.

Getting to Grips with Go Grippers Bounce and Speedway

This post brought to you by Kids II. The content and opinions expressed below are that of Tigerlilly Quinn.

You might remember a post a few weeks ago talking about how we were working with Oball and their Go Grippers range. We've been testing the range over this past month and more specifically the 'Bounce and Zoom Speedway' toy which this post will be covering in more detail.

Afternoon snacks and a morning with Yazoo (plus win a months supply!)

yahoo sugar free drink

Last weekend me and my little buddy had our first ever morning together without the baby since she arrived almost a year ago now. I asked Wilf if he was excited to spend some 'mummy/Wilfie' only time and he sad he was sad that Mabli wouldn't be with us (which just about melted my heart into a puddle) although once we were on the train and he got to play with his toys undisturbed he did mention it was nice she wasn't stealing his stuff ;)

The reason we were on the train was because we were heading to a beautiful location in Bradford on Avon to meet up with the folks at Yazoo and hear a bit more about their new children's milkshake that not only doesn't contain any sugar or artificial sweeteners, (as well as all the other usual suspects when it comes to nasties like e numbers etc) it actually is full of protein and calcium making it a healthy option for your kiddos.

We had such a fun morning at the beautiful Timbrells Yard (which I've already bookmarked to come back to with the rest of the family). Wilf crafted up a storm and we came home with so many creations made from the bottles including a bunch of superhero's and some binoculars. We also got a load of drinks in all different flavours to try out over the week and report back on how we got on and I've also got a great competition for you guys to win a months worth of Yazoo's for your kiddos.

I'm usually pretty wary of things that claim 'no added sugar' as they often contain sweeteners which are just as bad (aspartame in particular gives me an instant headache so I really don't want to be giving stuff like that to the kids if I can help it.

I made a little vlog about the day if you fancy a watch here and make sure to scroll to the end to find out how to win a month's supply!

I'm offering three readers the chance to win :

24 Yazoo No Added Sugar drinks (8 of each of the three yummy flavours, Strawberry, Banana & Toffee)
