Ocado is one of my favourite discoveries since arriving back in the UK. They are an online Supermarket that sells their own brand as well as Waitrose brand (From September 2020 they will swap Waitrose to Marks & Spencer). They have great discount offers for delivery but I find they have a great product range plus amazing Customer Service.

Snapfish is my go-to for printing any photos I have. Each year I also get a calendar printed for Myself, Mum and Gran. Each month features photos of the boys from the same month last year. I also got a few larger prints done to hang on the wall. Before making any purchases, keep an eye on the banner at the top of the homepage as they generally have some great offers and discounts there.

Stuff For Kids And Babies

 

Next.

You just can’t beat Next for kids clothes and shoes, I bought half of Flinn’s school uniform there this year. They even have an amazing next day delivery service.

Boden.

I have been obsessed with Boden for about 6 months now. At first I was just buying clothes for the boys – their T-shirts are gorgeous but I have since started buying for myself. Since having 3 kids and being in lockdown for 4 months I have gained myself a couple of new lumps, bumps and curves however the dresses I have bought from Boden have managed to carefully hide these and make me feel amazing!

 


Wonderbly.

I am absolutely in love with the books from Wonderbly. My boys each have their own personalised copy of “The Little Boy Who Lost His Name” and the older two also have “Where Are You”? You can’t get more of a personalised book, it’s an absolute treasure. You can check out my review of Where Are You? here.

Usborne.

A little while back I became a seller of Usborne books due to the fact that we had so many I thought I might as well as try and make a bit of money off it.

I genuinely love their books for all 3 of my boys and am constantly discovering new ones to buy, I have especially loved their wipe-clean learning ones during lockdown

Starting School Books.

I Am Absolutely Too Small For School by Lauren Child and Harry And The Bucket Full Of Dinosaurs by Ian Whybrow are two books that were recommended to me by Flinn’s preschool teacher to help him with the transition to big school. They are a great way to bring up the topic and any worries or fears your child may have in an indirect way.

My eldest was also gifted a Starting school sticker book which was a great way to talk about school while having fun.

 

twinkle.

twinkle is an amazing online resource to support kids learning. There are paid memberships but you can also get some stuff for free!
