One For Coffee Loves

I've made no secret of the fact that am a bit of a coffee addict and to be honest am rather snobbish about which coffee I drink.
One of my most favourite indulgences is waking up first when the kids are still sleeping and sneaking down stairs for a coffee in peace before the chaos begins.

This Christmas CoffeeBewer kidly gifted me one of thier Growers Cup 10pcs Gift Sets to try.

The gift set arrived beautifully  packaged, inside the box was an assortment of different  speciality coffee pouches. My set included organic & hand roasted coffee from Columbia and Brazil to name a few.

Whats different about these coffees is that you brew them in the pouch rather than a cafetiere but you still get the same great taste. Simply open the pouch and pour in the boiled water then leave it to brew for a few minutes. It's then ready to serve straight from the pouch using the spout. Each pouch makes two cups.

The packaging is made from kraft paper that can be recycled and a thin layer of plastic. Therefore it's not full recyclable at this time, however the brand are working on making their packaging more sustainable in the future, which am pleased to hear.

All the different coffees tasted devine and had that luxurious feel about them, there is a variety of strengths to choose from. Some of the stronger blends where perfect for my husband but a little to rich for me, I just added a little more water for a milder taste.

The pouches where ideal for serving to visitors during the festive period and at a Mummy coffee date, everyone wanted to know where I got them from.

These set would make the perfect gift for a coffee lover or for that person you really stuck on what to buy them (my husband being one of them). The CoffeeBewer website has a whole ran ge of different gift options including desk sets for office workers and mini introductory packages. Or if you appreciate a good coffee why not just treat yourself to a little indulgence at home!

* This set was gifted in exchange for an honest review. As always all opinions are my own.

Recaro Easylife Stroller Review

Since Tommy turned one in June I've been searching for a lightweight and easy fold stroller. I do love our Flip XT2 pushchair from Mamas and Papa's and still intend to use it for longer walks. However, now Tommy is bigger it can be quite heavy to push at times and although it's relatively compact when folded I do find it rather heavy to lift especially if your trying to juggle a wiggly baby at the same time. 
I spent a good bit of time researching strollers, reading countless reviews and watch YouTube demo videos as I wanted something that would be practical for our needs and look good too. Eventuallylly I decided on the Recaro Easylife in the colour black, the usual RRP is £189.00 but I managed to get it on sale from for £139.00.
First Impressions Setting up the Recaro Easylife was very simple, all I had to do was flip open the chassis and attach the front wheels. Then it was ready to go! The black frame and wheels gives the stroller a more pr…

Tips For Creating Instagram Flatlays

If you follow me on Instagram you will know am quite partial to posting a flatlay, I like how they mix up my grid and allow me to be a little creative. I find them really quick and easy to shoot and lighting is rarely an issue (natural lighting only). In no way I am claiming to be an expert but I have learnt a few tricks along.
Backdrop The backdrop is a key element of my flatlays. I tend to use two different textures layered together, this could be a white bedsheet and faux  fur blanket or wooden flooring and a throw.  I like to change the textures seasonally, in winter I favour faux furs and in summer lighter fabrics. I find using the same backdrop several times gives continuity to my feed and inkeeping with the tone. 

Theme & Colour Pallet  Before creating a flatlay I always have rough idea in my head if how I want it to look or what I would like it to portray. The image also has to fit in with my current instagram grid colour pallet. For example when creating the image below …

Micralite FastFold Pushchair Review

We where estastic to have recently been  given the opportunity to try out the new Micralite FastFold Pushchair with our one year old Tommy.  It could not of come at a better time as for the pervious couple of months we had been switching between using  our bigger travel system and light weight stroller depending on the occasion. Ideally I wanted to have one pushchair that was just as efficient for city trips as it was for a bit of country off roading without comprising on comfort and the FastFold promised to do just that. 
First Impressions  Assembling the FastFold was super easy, all I had to do was click on the rear wheels and attach the seat linner and it was ready to go! I thought the product had an overall good quality feel about it. It was sturdy, with large pneumatic tires but still compact in size. I loved the colours and design of the special "Festival" edition. The design is different to most pushchairs as the FastFold is wider at the front than it is at the rear.…
