Anniversary Birchbox Review

I received my second ever Birchbox this week and it just happened to coincide with their 5th Anniversary- Happy Birthday Birchbox 🎂🎁🎉 To celebrate, this month’s items were sent in a special edition tin. I assumed it would be about the same size as the usual Birchbox so I was pleasantly surprised to find that it was actually bigger than I expected, so I’ve already started thinking about what else I can use it for. Here’s what I received this month and my thoughts… Whittard Teabags First up are these 3 individual teabags from Whittards, perfect for a little treat!…

My Time as a Single Mum Part 1

I’m currently emerging from 2 years of single parenthood and thought I would use my blog to share my thoughts from the other side. During my time tackling this parenting gig solo I learnt so much and read a lot from other single parents going through it, but less about what happens if you choose for that time to be up. I’m intrigued to know how newly coupled up parents reflect on and feel about their time as a single parent, how they transitioned from single to couple again and how they helped their children navigate the changes in family…

My First Birchbox!

I admit it, I’m kinda (very!) late to the Birchbox party and have just received my first beauty box through the post and I have to say I’m liking it so far! For those of you in the know I jumped in with the May box containing 5 products in the ‘Palm Leaves and Warm Breeze’ design which made me feel very summery (even though it was raining outside!). This is what it looks like and I’m already thinking of what I can reuse it for- if you have any Birchbox tips or hacks please share them with me, and…
