Buying For Baby: How To Avoid Letting Your New Arrival Cripple Your Finances*

baby, beautiful, bed

It's a pretty well-known fact at this point that the cost of raising a child is pretty significant. In fact, in the modern age, the cost of raising a child to adulthood can range in the hundreds-of-thousands! Because of this, it's pretty understandable that a lot of people work hard to try and save as much money as possible. One of the biggest challenges getting in the way of this is the fact that babies and kids need a lot of stuff, and pretty much all of that stuff costs money, whether you like it or not. However, just because you have to spend money doesn't mean that you need to bankrupt yourself. Here are a few simple things that you can do in order to save money on the purchases for your new arrival.

Tips To Help Early Teethers | Parenting

Now, I am in no way a medical professional or experienced but this is just what has really helped me. So don't take this as gospel but a post like this would really help me so I hope it helps any of you new mums out there. Lily started getting her teeth in from about 10 weeks. It was a lot earlier than I expected, I know some babies can be born with teeth but I really thought it would be in a few more months. Lily has had a lot of trouble with her teeth coming through, she really whinges about it and just seems uncomfortable sometimes. Below are a few things that have helped me so far.

Leighton Denny | Party Ready Nails

I do love the classic Christmas colours for nails, red, white and green. However at a party I like them to be more elegant with a beautiful and eye catching colour. Leighton Denny nail varnishes are a big favourite of mine. The pigmentation is perfection, it drys really quick which is perfect for me always on the go. It also goes on so smoothly it makes painting your nails a breeze. They have some lovely colours and beautifully packaged. 

The new Bold and Beautiful Christmas collection is just that. They have a Great Gatsby vibe on the packaging which just screams party, party, party! I tried these out and went 5 days before even getting chipped polish, so a big thumbs up from me. It's a perfect stocking filler gift you can get at about £10 and they have other amazing colours on the Leighton Denny website.  

What is your favourite nail colour for the festive season? Let me know in the comments below.

Sunday Summary #22

This week has been a bit of a rollercoaster. It's been very up and down with Lily, she's either been knackered all day and pretty much just slept the majority or she's been fighting to stay awake, having a lot of trouble with her teeth trying to come through. I feel this week I'm starting to find the balance though, so I can get stuff done for myself as well as looking after Lily. She loves cuddles and I could sit there and cuddle her all day in between the feeds and nappy changes. However then I don't have any time for myself, to get the housework done or do a quick post. I've started to put her down once she's asleep and get a lot more done which you will notice from the influx in posts coming your way.
