My Favourite Blogs, Exploring the Zoo & Bulding Forts | #LittleLoves

Friday, 24 February 2017

I am soo pleased it's Friday again. As much as I love spending every day with the littles, weekends are just so much better with Jack at home. I cannot wait to get and about either. I feel like I've been stuck at home all week - if it wasn't the weather being crazy, we were waiting around for people / packages. Yay for the weekend!

Here's what I've loved this week...


I've read so many wonderful blog posts this week, it would be hard to pick just one to share. Instead I thought I'd share some of my favourite blogs to read.

Lilypad & Bow (previously Lily-Mae Adventures) is one of my absolute favourite blogs to read. Abbie not only writes wonderfully, but has the most beautiful photos. Her two little ones are just the sweetest too!

Another one of my favourites is Life With Mrs Lee. Harriet is mama to 3 year old Bella, and is currently expecting her second, a baby boy. Since meeting at a blog event last year we've not only become friends, but so have our girls - isn't blogging wonderful?

Finally I couldn't not mention New Young Mum - Alice & Amelia. I've followed Alice's blog from the very beginning and I don't think I've ever read a post I haven't enjoyed. She's another blogger who takes gorgeous photos, and makes me jealous of where she lives on a daily basis!


It seemed as if luck was on our side last weekend, as we not only managed to visit the zoo, but the weather was nice enough for ice creams! Despite it being huuuuge to walk around, Parker spent very little time in his pushchair. It was lovely to 'watch' him run around with Indie, exploring and seeing the animals as he pleased.

It was also lovely to watch Indie get so excited about our trip. She ran around with her map, guiding us to the animals she wanted to see. I asked her what the best bit of the day was, and she said "watching the elephant do a poo and a wee..." - aren't 3 year olds delightful?


Who else watched The Brits this week? To be honest I wasn't hugely impressed with most of the performers, and I'm sure they were having issues left, right and centre. But Ed Sheeran was fantastic, and totally stole the show!


We were sent a fab box of goodies from Plusnet, to celebrate their #halftermhygge event. The box was full of everything that we needed to get all hygge - fairy lights and a star garland, popcorn, a hot chocolate spoon, and idea cards to make our very own hygge fort.

My two absolutely loved making our chair fort. Indie brought in all of the cushions, I added blankets and the lights, and we closed the curtains to make it all cosy. I may have failed at the popcorn (next time I'll stick with the packet stuff!), but hot chocolates and biscuits were good enough for us. And I bet you can't guess what film we watched?


I'm technically cheating at this one, as they haven't actually worn the clothes yes... but how gorgeous are these pieces from JoJo Maman Bebe? I paid a visit to their new store in Tunbridge Wells, and couldn't resist having a look for myself and the littles. Do pop over and have a look, as there's also a giveaway to win a £50 voucher (it can be spent at any store or online!).

And Lastly...

Does anyone else feel as if their house is constantly full of germs? Thankfully Indie seems to have built up her immune system, from being at nursery and now preschool. But poor Parker seems to get every cold going (and then passes it to me). Argh!

Have a lovely week :)

JoJo Maman Bebe, The New Tunbridge Wells Store + £50 Voucher Giveaway!

Wednesday, 22 February 2017

Parker and I had a very exciting morning yesterday. We hopped on the bus into town, to visit the newly relocated JoJo Maman Bebe store! The Tunbridge Wells store has moved from it's previous location inside the Royal Victoria shopping centre, to it's new location on Mount Pleasant (on the way to the station) between Wagamama and Carluccio's.

Since opening their first store in 2002, JoJo Maman Bebe has quickly become the leading boutique mother and baby brand in the UK. They are a brand I have lusted over since I fell pregnant with my first child, and somewhere I love to shop for both of my little ones (and would be for me too if I was expecting). So I was very excited to check out the new store.

Spread over three floors of a beautiful Georgian building, the new store has SO much to offer. The ground floor is home to all of the items you would have found in the original store. Baby and children's clothing, toys, and accessories.

There is plenty of floor space so you can browse with ease, as well as there being room for multiple pushchairs - a must in a baby store. They have a lovely little table and chairs, as well as crayons and paper, so older children can sit and colour while you shop. Parker absolutely loved this as it meant he was entertained and I could look around - win win really!

Access to the upper floors is either via the stairs or lift, both located at the back of the store. The spacious first floor is where you'll want to head if you're expecting. It's a rare luxury for JoJo stores to have this amount of space, so it's amazing that the Tunbridge Wells store has room to offer the full maternity collection.

No need to worry about safety while on this floor though, JoJo have your back. The top of the stairs has a safety gate! How brilliant is that? There are also two large changing rooms and plenty of mirrors. It really is a perfect place to shop.

On the second floor you will find a dedicated feeding area, with comfy chairs and water on offer. However you don't need to worry about heading up there to feed if you don't want to. There is plenty of seating available throughout the store. You will also find toilets and a baby change on this floor.

The Tunbridge Wells store really does have such a lovely feel to it. The staff are friendly and very helpful, it's lovely and bright and all the products on offer are simply beautiful! The dedicated team also offer extra one-to-one advice if you need an extra hand - just simply call to book a visit. This may be a good idea if you wish to have a bra fitting (although not essential).

If you're local to Tunbridge Wells and a mama or mama-to-be, I would 100% recommend a visit to JoJo Maman Bebe. The store is open 9.30am - 5.30pm Monday - Saturday, and 10.30am - 4.30pm on a Sunday. Just don't blame me if you come out with lighter pockets (it'll be hard to resist though!). 

And if you need any more persuading, I'm thrilled to be offering my readers a chance to win a £50 voucher to spend in-store or online! Just enter below (terms and conditions apply).
