If you follow me on social media, then 3 weeks ago you would have seen my announcement sharing the news that my child had entered the world 16 days early. For the first time since she was born, I’m finally sitting down to do some serious blogging and at the top of my drafts was the labour and birth story.

The Baby Shower

On Sunday 10th September, I had the pleasure of hosting my friends and family round my gaff for Baby Moore’s shower.

A mere 9 days later, Freya decided to make an early appearance into the world with my waters breaking like something from a soap or film. (I’ll be writing about that later this week when I share my labour story on the blog.)

If I’m completely honest, I took hardly any photos and I’m so glad I was phone free the whole time as I just loved spending time with the wonderful ladies in my life. The above photo was my very pregnant self and two ladies who were my bridesmaids back in May but have also been my friends for 6-7 years now. As mum’s of boys themselves, they were super excited that my little bundle was a girl.

The baby shower was full of games like “How well do you know the mum to be?”, “Fill in the missing words from the nursery rhyme” and Baby Fact or Fiction. We feasted on samosas, fizzy dummy sweets and nibbles and it was the perfect way to spend the day.

Having helped plan friends baby showers in the past, I’m always on the lookout for quirky games/gifts that are a bit more out of the box. This baby shower tea gift set is a fab way of giving the gift of afternoon tea or a brew for a mama in need once baby arrives as well as hopefully putting a smile on someone’s face.

The set comes in different volumes as well as tea flavours including English breakfast, Earl Grey, a mixture of the two or assorted flavours. I love the motivational quotes on each tea bag which as a new mum now, would certainly put a smile on my face when making myself a much-needed brew.

To celebrate my new-found mum-life, I’m giving away a full set of these baby shower tea gift sets with 16 tea bags inside as pictured above. To enter please use the rafflecopter below and entry is UK only. The winner will be selected at random after 7 days and contacted via email.

Happy Entering!

A great way to watch new Movies at home

Now I’m on maternity leave; albeit with a newborn baby now, I’m taking the opportunity to blog more and watch TV box sets and movies whenever possible.

We love watching movies in our house but admittedly now there is a newborn in the house, the opportunity to watch them as frequently as we used to has seriously declined.

Cinema Paradiso is a DVD rental service that allows you the chance to create a list of movies/tv shows you would like to watch and when the DVD becomes available, they will send them out first class in the post to your door. There are over 90’000 titles to choose from so it can take a while to curate your perfect list. The best thing about the service is that you can keep the DVD’s as long as you would like and upon return, a new title will be sent out to you.
