Daisie's 3rd birthday plans

As ever I'm a super organized mumma that is planning Daisie's 3rd birthday party!
Her birthday isn't until July but every year I plan the girls birthday's months ahead and still end up a walking ball of stress because I've ran out of time to get things be it decorations,party food,presents or celotape.
Anyway to the point...
This year I planned to book a build a bear party for her but after our first visit there the other week I wasn't to impressed with the range of teddys you get on the budget I had set 
I don't know if it's just my local one but there's was 2 teddies to choose from they were the same just a different colour.
But that being the cheapest option was still going to cost me 1OO not including a trip for something to eat afterwards and tbh the girls visit lasted no more than 5 minutes, I was leaving it down to the parents to add extras like a voice,t-shirt and some accesories because at this moment in time and with her only being 3 1OO is a alot to pay out not to mention our train fares to get there, extras for my girls bears and then food afterwards for the party guests.
It would be crippling, I'm thinking once she's older may be a better idea :)

It's a crafty tea party 
being July the weather is usually pretty nice so I'm setting up a crafts table in the garden for the kids to go crazy with, the BBQ will be on for the adults and a little tea party will be set up inside with ice cream and a whole selection of toppings.
I also plan to take her to London aquarium or zoo for the day on her actual birthday

Haul - ELC paints

I'm either a very brave mummy or a very silly one buying this lot, After my living room and dog being painted blue the other morning my little Daisie works so quickly & quietly it's scary. 
Within in seconds she could have the whole living room turned upside down without you hearing a thing even tho your only a few foot away in the kitchen (We have a latch from the kitchen to the living room)

Anyway a few posts down you'll find my creating a craft cupboard post, ELC had their 2O% off arts and crafts offer and I just couldn't help myself with the paints down to 8Op I just had to buy them all, a few were out of stock :( 

I will get clearer photos with my camera when I get a chance, One of them glows in the dark and it looks AMAZING put it into a little bit of darkness and it's glowing away!
This little lot cost me a total of £14.75 including delivery :) 

A very nice start to our crafts cupboard  I'd say

Mini kids haul

Today we had a totally unexpected trip to bromley, I said I wouldn't shop at all as we was only going for the soft play and a mc'donalds for the girls.
BUT come on now it's like tying a dog outside a butchers and not coming out with a treat for him/her with me when it comes to shopping.
Of course I was just nipping in for a quick look round but each shop I went in I came out with some bargains 
(I only went into 2 I didn't want to walk out of the others crying over the bargains I'd be missing)
Anyway enough of my nagging here's what I got :)

High tops - £7.99 down from £25.99
Jeggings - £2.99 down from £9.99
Black leggings with a leather look stripe down the sides - £2.99 down from £7.99
Brown leggings £2.99 down from £7.99

Over all saving of £35!!
These were my FIRST ever zara purchases so I'm really chuffed with my saving.

White footless tights £1 NO TAG so I don't know the original price of those
2x Tiger jumper - £4 each down from £7.99
2x Cat t-shirt - £2.99

Only the tights & Jumpers were in the sale.

The floral leggings and navy leggings I grabbed the other week but thought I'd include them 
both of those came from ASDA and were £3 each :)

Please excuse the unsightly blue mark and mucky looking stain on my rug, Daisie painted my living room blue the other morning and the other unsightly mark is from my friend dropping hair dye on it :( 
On the hunt for a new rug!

The Mummy Tag'

I found this great TAG over at Kerry's blog - ohsoamelia
and just had to take part!

1. Are you a Stay at Home Mum, or a Working Mum?
Stay at home mum for now.

2. Would you have it any other way?
I love being home with my babies all the time, I'd also love nothing more than to work but with my anxiety disorder it's not doable right now but I aim to be working when Daisie starts nursery.

3. Do you co-sleep?
No, If I had my way it's likely I would have but Andy refuses to share his bed

4. What is your one must-have item for your baby?
Has to be baby swing! It was such a god send with both my girls, I could get so much done while they were in it.

5. How many kids do you plan on having?
I'd love 4

6. Date night? How many nights per month?
Date night? per month? We are lucky to get a day/night alone once a year but we do sometimes get the girls settled in bed and snuggle up with a film but it's very rare, although we've made a deal that this year we make more time or us as a couple.

7. Your childs favourite show?
The oh so wonderful full of attitude peppa pig :/ 
Issy's a big disney princess fan but barely watches any of the princess dvds she has, as her little sister rules the roost with peppa pig on numerous times a day

8. Name one thing you bought before you had your baby and never ended up using?
Shoes and headbands I bought and made so many and they barely wore any of them, I wouldn't put the headbands on as I was so paranoid they would give them a headache as I made them by measuring a dolls head.

9. Your child’s favourite food?
Daisie loves anything with ketchup on and Issy will always ask for spaghetti NEXT to toast put it on the toast and you will know about it

10. How many cars does your family have?
None :( But I am doing my lessons Andy's a 2 wheel man

11. Weight gain before pregnancy, during and after and now?
I don't know what I gained while pregnant but whatever I gained I lost straight away, Most people would be whooping and yaying but I was kind of gutted, I tried gaining weight for years with no luck, I've finally gained some weight years later tho, Yay!

12. Dream holiday with your kids?
Has to be Disneyland

13. Dream holiday without your kids?
I've never been abroad so anywhere will suit me, It will be lovely to have some time just us

14. How has your life changed since your baby has been born?
In quite a few ways, all for the better tho

15. Finish the sentence: 'It makes my heart melt to see … '
Seeing my girls playing nicely and giggling together

16. Where do you shop for your kids?
All over the place I love a good bargain! Asda,H&M,primark,eBay,F&F

17. Favourite makeup and skincare products?
Can't really say I have one of either I tend to go with whats on offer and what I can afford at the time

18. Huggies or Pampers?

19. Have you always wanted kids?
No, I never wanted to get married either now look at me 2 kids and wanting more an to get married :')

20. Best part about being a mum?
Absolutely everything! Oh yes they can be monkeys but its all part of the fun!
I tag all of you mummies to do this and would love for you to post your links below so I can take a read!

Poundland Treasures

Poundland is my favourite place to stop off at before heading home after the school run.
It's full of so many hidden treasures!!
I buy alot of brand name cleaning products from there but no one want's to see that do they!
So here's a small amount of the treasures I've bought recently.

I have 2 of the tangle attack brushes but as they are they the girls the pink has already gone to the land of no return. I will be doing a closer review of these brushes.
The chuppa chup candles were my fave scents out of the many scents they had in stock, they also had love hearts ones too.
You can never have enough hair donuts either eh?
After a friend made a donut bun using just my hair (no way in hell could I do it myself)
she said the medium size they had for sale would be perfect for my hair length, I'd never have thought my hair was long enough for a donut so big.
The shampoo and detangler smells so nice I just had to grab it, the girls don't even need any of either but for £1 they sure as hell were coming home with me!
