Primark Haul December 2016

Happy Thursday peeps! Hope you have all had a great Christmas! We are off on a family trip for New Year tomorrow so I’ll be back with more videos next week – I’m thinking of a “What Harry Potter stuff I got for Xmas”.

Last week I popped into Primark and thought it would a be a good ideal to film a quick haul video. So check out my Primark Haul video – including Harry Potter bits (of course).

Have a fantastic New Year!

Hogwarts in The Snow | Harry Potter Studios

So yesterday I went to The Making of Harry Potter at the Warner Bros Studios in London. I went with my best friend and fellow potterhead Keely. This was the second time that I’ve been to the Hogwarts in  the snow and it is truly one of my favourite places. The day was so fantastic and I can’t wait to go back again!

So instead of writing about it here I am sharing a video of the day and also a video from my Snapchat story of the day. Enjoy!!!

Whitney English Day Designer 2016 Unboxing

So for 2016 I decided to give the Day Designer from Whitney English a whirl. I LOVE Erin Condren but since having Guinevere I’ve been craving more of a daily to-do type set up. So after persuading my best friend Keely to also grab a Day Designer (we could share the postage) I was so excited to receive my planner in the mail.

Dear Guinevere {1 Year}

Dear Guinevere,

A year ago today (at 16:51) my life changed forever. That single moment in time when you came into the world is ingrained into my memory. It will always bring tears to my eyes. You were 6lb 6oz of beautiful and perfect loveliness. Nothing prepares you for that moment. No matter how much you think you have bonded during pregnancy and the feelings you think you will have – it’s a million times more. I was filled with love.

Guinevere 12 months

Those first 2 weeks at home – just the three of us was perfect. Spending time getting to know you and you getting to know us. There were a lot of things we had to learn… and fast! I read all the baby books, googled everything and then at some point you realise you just need to relax. We spent the days cuddling and watching you with awe.

The first day your Daddy went back to work was so scary. I was supposed to look after you all on my own! I hadn’t trained for this. But we found our way and got ourselves into a routine. Each day has something new and now you are 1 there are so many fun things we do together.

We had some challenges breastfeeding. To be honest it broke my heart. I mourned the fact that I couldn’t breastfeed you properly. We did manage 6 months of breast milk with me pumping. That was hard work. Constantly connected to a breast pump. We did it though and I’m so glad I did it.

How different you are now from a year ago. You no longer spend your days sleeping but you are so busy rushing around, discovering new things, playing with Betty and chasing after me. No more tiny baby sounds but full on laughs and shouts. You are not far off walking either. I can’t wait!

I fantasise about the things we will do over the years. I saw the below image on from A Mom’s Life Uncut and it totally sums up how I feel. I’m excited for all the things we will do when you grow up but at the same time I don’t want you to stop being my baby girl.

Mom Quote

We have both grown so much this past year. You have been learning new skills and developing into a little person. I have been learning to be a Mama. Some days I do great and some days I don’t. It’s a constant learning curve. As soon as I think I have it figured out – something else changes. I’m not the perfect Mummy but I will always protect you, teach you and love you more than anyone could ever love something.

I can’t really think of our life before you. It seems like it isn’t real. That you have always been here with me. You made us complete. Seeing you with your Daddy makes my heart burst. I love the way he loves you and the way you love him. Your face lights up when he comes home.

You are the most smiley and happy girl I know. You light up a room. I can’t wait to see what wonderful things you do with your life. Always follow your dreams. Surround yourself with lovely people and always be kind and compassionate. They are the most important things.

So we made it through our first year. A wonderful year. I can’t wait for the next and the next…

Because of you, my heart sings with joy.

Because of you, my life is complete.

Because of you, I have grown so much as a person.

Because of you, I really know what unconditional love is.

Thank you for the lessons, the love and the laughter.

Happy 1st Birthday my gorgeous girl.

I love you more than anything.

Here is a montage of your 1st Year
