Organised Mum Life Book Planner Flip Through

Howdy! It’s been so long since I posted. So sorry! I’m going to start blogging more regularly in the next month. In the meantime I’ve had a new planner in the post. So I thought I’d do a flip through video showing you all what it’s like.

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.

So here is the unboxing video.

I’ll be doing a an update video in a few months about how I’ve been finding the planner so far.

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

Guinevere’s 11 Month Update

Finally uploaded Guinevere’s 11 month update. Better late than never!


Love Jess and Guinevere



Dear Guinevere {11 Months}

Dear Guinevere,

Happy 11 Months! I can’t believe we are almost at your 1st Birthday! This month we are busy preparing for Christmas. Daddy and I can’t wait to spend our Christmas with you and creating new traditions and carrying on some old ones. You love looking at the Christmas tree and all the decorations.

Dear Guinevere 11 Months

You are now pulling up and standing all the time. You look pleased as punch when you stand. Today you let go briefly and stood on your own.

This month we had my beautiful Goddaughters christening. Santa was there…. it didn’t go down well!

Dear Guinevere 11 Months


We also took some fun family holiday photos…

Teething has been horrid for you this past week. You seem to have 3-4 coming through at the same time. I’ll be glad when it’s over!

Baby is a new word for you this month and strawberries are a new favourite food.

You are my most treasured thing in this world. Each morning when we wake I look forward to what new things you will do or discover.

I love you my darling.

Leonie Dawson Create Your Shining Year 2016 Bundle Unboxing

I’m a big fan of the Leonie Dawson workbooks. I’ve used them the past 4 years. Each year they get better and better. This year she really knocked it out of the park. You can still buy the workbooks separately or order the awesome bundle that I have.

I did a Periscope (jessgreen84) of the Leonie Dawson Create Your Shining Year Bundle Unboxing so you can watch that below. I am going to be doing a more in depth flip through of both the workboook and the planner soon. So subscribe to my channel if you want to see those.

I love the workbooks and can’t wait to use the rest of the bundle. If you fancy getting your own you can purchase through my affiliate link which doesn’t cost you any extra but gives me a few pennies to put in my unicorn fund 🙂

Lots of love

They have some great Christmas bits in there and Harry Potter clothes…..might have to pop back!

Dear Guinevere {10 Months}

Dear Guinevere,

Happy 10 Months!

Guinevere 10 Months


You are crawling around everywhere now. Like a little speedy gonzales! You say a few words now: Mumma, Dadda, Daisy, Betty, Nanna and yum.

You love playing with Betty – she makes you laugh so much.

We went to your first fireworks display which was fun.


You love playing in your playpen with cousin Ayrton.


Spinach pasta is still your favourite food. Your favourite things to watch are Baby Jake, Mickey Mouse Clubhouse and Pim and Pimba.

You dressed up as a Pumpkin for Halloween.

You came to a CPR class with Mummy and got involved.

I’m so excited that Christmas is coming up. It’s going to be been even more special now that we have you to share it with. We can carry on old traditions and start our own new ones.


I love you my darling.

Dear Guinevere {9 Months}

Dear Guinevere,

9 months old today! We’ve had such an eventful month so far.

Dear Guinevere 9 Months

We moved house 2 weeks ago and I’m so glad we are in! The actual move day was pretty stressful. You did not want to be put down at all. Plus I didn’t really have any toys or your walker to try and keep you occupied. Luckily Nanny came over for a couple of hours so I could get a few things unpacked. We still have a lot of unpacking to do but I can tell we are going to be very happy in this house.

We also had your Christening. It was so lovely and you had lots of special people there, including Auntie Kathy from America.





You’ve been practising your crawling and you are getting around much quicker now. You have also started pulling up on things. I think our main focus this month will be baby proofing!!!

You said your first word on the 25th Sept and it was Dada. You also say Mumma and Daisy (one of our cats).

Our plans this month are to go swimming and to start going to a couple of baby groups.

I love you my darling
