Our toddler's room tour.

2nd February, 2020
The response on our children room across our social media platforms is insane every time I post it. It's just a cute little interior full of toys and colours! Nothing too special - but very special to me. I never planned what this room will actually look like. It all happened very spontaneously and randomly. We've been through at least 20 different ball pits within the last year... From cats popping it with their claws to upgrading to a bigger size (more soft balls), and simply me - the mother, getting bored of the current pool wanting to change things up for my baby. If only this room was a little bit bigger... Ahh, the things I'd do to it and items I'd purchase, my head is full of amazing ideas. I love this place and I'm so very grateful to give my children the room they deserve and love. This room is a reflection of all I wanted as a young child.

Peri-peri chicken one pot.

Since having a newborn I am all about one pot dinners. Tell a lie - I've always preferred them. Saves me washing up more pots and pans later !! Quicker to serve and easier to consume. What an extremely lazy intro, but I'm sure you feel my pain. I'm not no professional chef here, however when I create a dish that hits the spot I will 100% share it with you because why not.. Easy, quick and sooo delicious. Let's get right into it..

Christmas tree in our toddler's bedroom.

This year I decided to buy my little girl who's 2 and a half, her first very own Christmas tree. Not only did she enjoy putting it up and decorating it with me, it also cosied up her room enough to encourage her to play in it more often, as she's normally downstairs in the living room with me. She absolutely enjoyed the entire process from the start to finish line. We headed over to town, to shop for decorations for her and she picked the most amazing pieces. Overall this was one of the most fun and creative activities we have done together, and of course - very bonding.

Butter bean tomato soup with polish sausage.

I'm all about quick and easy meals. Cooking certainly isn't my favourite thing to do if I'm honest. And of course due to that, 1 pot meals are life savers to me. Check out this ridiculously simple family recipe that tastes absolutely amazing, and it's sooo filling. One of my favs since childhood days... And I never realised how easy it is to make it until I made it myself for the first time. This dish can be served on it's own, with bread or chapattis!

My favourite and affordable kitchen gadgets !!

15th November, 2019
I'm here today with a quick post dedicated to my kitchen, finally - as it's normally about Christianna's room lol !! I have been loving these gadgets for many months. My kitchen might not be perfect to some but it truly is to me. I feel so grateful to finally have my own place and be able to decorate it and do it up just the way I've always wanted to. It means the world. Last month I celebrated our 1st whole year of moving into our home and treated myself, and our home to some new bits and bobs. I want to change up few things, such us the curtains in each room but we will talk about this another time.. Let's dig right into it..

Tips for feeding the wildlife in winter.

12th November, 2019
I love the fact that my little girl enjoys feeding and looking after the wildlife. Being an animal lover myself, this is very important to me, to teach my children respect, care and love for all creatures. We often feed local birds, foxes and squirrels by collecting dried on the radiator bread, left over biscuits, cereal, cooked pasta, rice or couscous, nuts and seeds and taking it down to the park by the end of every week when the bag is full of goodies. In winter this is very important as most birds thrive on seeds since insects and fruit are harder to find naturally during the cold season.

4 decorative home gadgets that I have been loving over the past year.

7th November, 2019
I don't know whether shopping for home décor and gadgets makes me happy or I'm just addicted, either way - I love it... I can almost never resist going into B&M, Pound Stretcher or Wilko whenever in town. And even if I do, and I give myself a pat on the back 'Well done girrrrrl! Yasss Dominica! You did it! You're the woman! You just walked past that shop like a real soldier...', there are always other temptations and ways such as Amazon and Ebay where I don't even have to leave my house for a hunt opportunity to purchase some new bits and bobs for my home that of course I don't even need. Here are some of my fav items that I came across online and been loving ever since.

Is your bundle of joy starting nursery soon? Here's my top tips and what to expect!

I'm going to kick this post off by being brutally honest with you. Let's jump straight into it. Sending my daughter to nursery for the first time has been the hardest thing in my life. Harder than labour itself lol, and no I'm not even playing !! I mean trusting a complete strange group of women to take care of my entire life's biggest treasure, how? It almost seemed impossible and since deciding she is 'nursery ready' I cried every time I thought about it.

Autumn in my house - must have decorations this season !!

31st October, 2019
As some of you already know - autumn is my favourite time and season of the entire year. I love fall for never ending number of reasons, from the fashion, hot drinks, beautiful leaves falling off the trees to the weather that everyone seem to complain about. I love cosy evenings on my sofa with my favourite cuppa and romantic comedies on.

My top life, home and cleaning hacks that will make your life easier !!

30th October, 2019
I have been meaning to write this post for a good while now !! I tried to remember and write down as many of the handy hacks that I use in my home on a regular basis as possible. Most of them have been passed on to me by my amazing mother who has previously worked as a cleaner and house keeper when first arriving to the UK. I remember how fun it was for me as a child to be able to attend her client's beautiful houses with her, located on the streets of West London, watching her do the magic and turn greasy kitchens into - IKEA showrooms... Ahh how I loved the modern interiors and wonderful décor.
