Pretty in pink

I have been having some trouble with my laptop recently so it has been really hard to try and get the posts that I want to do up.For some reason my 'a' key will not work which makes it pretty difficult to write posts up. Jason is on his 18 days off from today so he's going to sort it for me wohooo. Marathon blogging session for me! I have so many fun things to share! I went for an amazing meal in Leeds, found a great face tanner, my favourite candles & some really amazing happening with my store (The Bow Boutique).   

Today however, how cute does Emme look all ready for the warm weather?! I heard we are ah in a 6 week heat wave from next week?! Anyone know if that's true? I love Emme's little jelly shoes I think they are so cute, this was the first time she has worn them so she was amazed by them and they were only £4!! Her feet seem to be growing like crazy recently, I though these would last for the summer but I think she might need the sizes up by the time summer actually comes.

I'm not sure how this post will look once it's up as I've never used the app to do it before, hopefully it looks ok so I can use it more when I want to share some pictures.

Vintage style

So happy we have another beautiful day to go for a walk. 
I love this little vintage style cape, it goes it so many outfits and goes perfectly with this little dress with the scalloped edges. I bought this dress while i was pregnant and fell in love with it but i wanted to get it in a big size because i thought it would so cute when she could walk around in it. Its a size 9-12 month and it seemed like she would never it into it as it looked huge. I wish i had got another in the next size up so she could wear it through the summer.

Weekly Advertiser #001

There's so many blogger's out there now that I thought I'd start to share with you a different blogger or two each week.I used to do posts like this a while ago and really enjoyed it. They will some how have to fit the style of my blog by been rather beauty, lifestyle or mummy related. Naturally I asked Jessica to complete the first post to show what each weekly advertiser will be writing about.

01. Tell us about your blog?
I mainly focused around the lifestyle side of blogging with little bit of everything else thrown in.. there's wide variety for anyone to relate with. I find lifestyle blogging the most interesting to write about because everyone has different lifestyles so you'll never find two the same.
02. Why and when did you start blogging?
I created PeachyNotes around one year ago. Like most people I'd began from reading other blogs before creating my own. I needed a hobby at the time of creating my blog and now its just something I really enjoy spending my time doing, I love the social side of blogging talking and meeting other people. I've wrote a post here about why I became a blogger. 
03. What are three things people may not know about you?
  • I've been the beauty specialist at Superdrug and I'm now the skincare expert at The Body Shop.
  • I've attempted to go blonde in the past and failed, Its taken three years to grow my hair back this long! 
  • Although I love everything beauty and skincare related my collection is rather small.
04. What's your everyday style like?
I'm normally wearing skinny jeans with just a plain top, then my leather jacket or chunky knitted cardigan thrown over, Also I tend to stick to the simple colours like black, grey and white. My footwear ages between boots and pumps, depending on the weather.
Any Last Words?
I hope you click over and visit my blog, I've added some pictures above to show you that kinds of post you'd see over there, thanks for reading!
If you'd like to advertise on next weeks post,  follow me over on bloglovin' and leave a comment below, every week I'll read through and pick one or two people from the comments left, Hope you enjoyed this post and find lots of new blogs to read!

Leeds Event | Russell Eaton Salon | Nioxin 30 day Challenge

Last week my sister Jessica ( Peachnotes) and i went to the Russell Eaton salon in Leeds for the Nioxin 30 day challenge night. We went on the train as non of us like driving to Leeds, its alot faster and easier. I would probably get so lost if i tried to drive to Leeds. The Russell Eaton salon is really easy to find, once we arived we were greeting with a glass of champain and shown to our seat ready for a talk all about Nioxin and how it helps your hair grow thinker. 
After the talk we got to see our scalps through the NIOscope which its a camera the can take pictures of your roots so you can see them clearly and all the build up on your scalp. It was good to see the before and after to see how much difference the Nioxin dermabrasion makes.
The dermabrasion cream was applied to our roots and left for 5 minutes to work its magic. While we waited we were offered a hand & arm massage. Jessica tucked in to the snacks and ate the whole bowl! We were also told which our most suited system would be from the Nioxin 30 days system range which gives fuller, thicker hair in 30 days or your money back! I was most suited to range 4, fine, chemically treated hair. My hair is in alot better condition than i thought it would be but im really looking forward to trying the range as i do feel my hair is so much thinner than it used to be.
After the treatment had been washed off we had a lovely blow dry..i wish i could come here everyday!We had another look on the nioscope to see the difference. My hair felt so nice and refreshed!
Overall i had a great night and i cant wait to go back to the salon and see everyone again. The staff were so lovely. I would definitely recommend the dermabrasion and I'm really looking forward to trying out the little kit and seeing if i can see the difference after 30 days. I will definitely do a post an let you know how it goes!
Thank you so much to the staff at Russell Eaton and Nioxin for a great night!

Dermabrasion - £15
Nioxin 30 day kit - £30

At the park..

We are definitely making the most of this nice weather while it lasts! Our local park is right next to Cambells school so we have been going to play for an hour before school while we can. He gets so excited and Emme loves the swings.  
Last night i got the chance to go to a really fun event in Leeds at the Russell Eaton salon for the Nioxin night. I will put a post up about that over the next few days with pictures. It was nice to meet people who i felt like i already knew though blogging but never met in person before.

Canvas Design & GIVEAWAY...

I recently had the chance to try out Canvas Design and have a print put on to canvas*. 
We were sent a 12x12 100% cotton canvas, i thought of the picture i wanted straight away as Jason had always said it was his favourite one. My only problem was that it was taken on an iphone.... like most of my pictures now. Which i was abit worried about as i know you are suppose to use high quality images which i just didn't have i stopped using my actual camera a while ago as my iphone pictures seemed just as good and it was lot easier. So i went for this one, it was also a good test for other people that only have iphone pictures so you can see how good the image quality will be. We have been decorating our stairs so i knew i wanted the picture to go there which is why i got it in black & white so it would go perfectly.I couldn't wait for it to arrive. 
I am super impressed with  how it turned out, the quality is amazing! I am 100% happy with it. I am definitely planning on buying some more. I have a photo shoot coming up soon so i am going to get my favourite ones put onto canvas. Canvas design have great prices so i can get a few different ones.
Prices of the canvas start at £5.99 which is such a great price! 

We have also been given the change to give a canvas away!! 

Have a nice day :)

Pretty in Mint!

 I really love mint, its been my favourite colour for so long, i think it was actually when i first started my blog and i fell in love with the Barry m nail polish. Now it I,m just addicted to anything mint for both me and Emme. She does look so cute in it though. We are loving going out on little walks now the weather is getting better, this little bit of grass and lake is on the street where we live so its a nice little area we can walk round when we get chance :) its all closed off too so its safe for kiddies to play.

Emme's 14 Month Update

My little baby has just turned 14 month old!! So crazy! She is growing and learning so much everyday. She has been walking since around Christmas time and she's getting very confident now, today she was running around the room with her ride on but instead of using it to help her she was just dragging it around, jumping and picking it up. She can say a few words and is eating everything we do so far she hasn't been a very fussy eater. She still sleeps through the night and has a nap at around 12 until 2-3 while her brothers are at school. She is wearing 12-18 month clothes and still has some 9-12, both the boys were in sizes bigger than there ages when they were little so i was surprised Emme was still fitting in her clothes longer.
She has the most amazing personality, very happy, fun,cheeky little princess. She loves books, we read the ones with the flaps so she can pick them up or the ones with the different materials on so she can touch them and see how they all feel different, she will pick them up and come sit on my knee as soon as she spots a book.

Emme's first summer walk...

We went on a little walk today with the weather being so nice. Its Emme's first proper walk really as she hasn't been walking long and its been way too wet to take her out. We have a little lake on the street where we live so we decided to go there so she could have a run on the grass. I can't wait to start having more days out this year now she can walk around :).After we had been on our little walk we decided to call to the local shopping outlet for a starbucks and some sweets from the old sweet shop!
My sister Tanya came around this morning to do my hair for me so i think I'm going to post about that when its finished because it was the Macadamia oil color that she used and it is the first time I've used it. I'm having a lighter shade added later this week so that post will probably be towards the end of the week :).

Mummy Tag..

I love tags, i haven't done one in a while and i saw this one the other day so thought i would join in :).

1. Are you a stay at home mum, or a working mum?
I'd say both, I have my own business (with my sister) but we do it from home so i'm always home. Which is how i like it, i know everyone is different and alot of mums like to go out to work and that works for them. My mum was always at home when i was little and my dad went out to work, i loved her always been there so i always wanted to do the same luckly Jason has a great job so i could do that but now i have the boutique its nice to do it from home.

2. Would you have it any other way?
I love it how it is at the minute and would never want to change it. I wouldn't ever want someone else looking after my children.

3.Do you co-sleep?
No. I've always been to scared by it from everything you get told. I have let Emme fall to sleep in my bed cuddling if im watching a film but then when i go to sleep i put her back in her cot that is next to my bed (having a harder time putting her in her own room than i did with the boys)

4. What is your one must have item for your baby?
Emme had a blanket she carrys around with her and sleeps with, its's like a muslin cloth i used to use when i fed her when she was first born instead of a bib and because we had alot and i used them all the time she seems to have took to it as her comfort blanket now.So that is something that is our must at the minute she wouldn't be happy if it went. I think its so cute though. Cambell has always had a little dog teddy her loves and sleeps with too.

5.How many kids do you plan on having?
I think i would like one more, so 4. 

6.Date nights? How often do you have them?
Erm, We don't go out often at all really but we will sit down stairs and watch a film together on a night and there's a few tv show's  we watch together every week so we still get 'us' time.

7.Your Child's favourite show?
Her first favourite was the film Mistletones and she now really love Mary Poppins. She loves music!!

8.Name one thing you bought before your baby but never used.
Clothes there were newborn clothes that didn't get worn and we ad a bottle that warmed the milk up itself we didn't really get any use out of that as it was to heavy. I'm sure there was more with Jake but i cant really remember i think when you get to baby no3 you know what you will actually use and what things are just pointless.

9.Child favourite food?
Bananas and she really likes bread in soup at the minute.... and porridge.

10.How many cars soes your family have?
1 now we did have two but i sold mine last year. I'm hoping to get another one though.

11.weight gain.Before, during and after?
I only gained 1 stone when i was pregnant with Emme. I couldn't believe it with the boys i definitely put on more but i just didn't seem to with Emme. I lost that pretty much as soon as she was born as she was 9lb1oz.. Although i wasn't happy with my weight before i fell pregnant. I'm 3lb off my first goal at the minute but i would like to lost at least another stone.

12.Dream holiday with kids?
We love going to the Isle Of wight but my dreammmm holiday would be Disney Land as they would absolutely love it!

13. Dream holiday without the kids.
ohh some where super warm with white beaches and blue clear sea.

14.How has your life changed since having kids?
Quite a lot before i used to work in a clothes shop before i got pregnant and saw my friends alot more, but i love my life so much more now.

15. Finish the sentence 'It makes my heart melt when...'
They tell me they love me or when Emme just foes something cute, shes always doing things to make me melt! Also looking back at old videos ahhh ive been looking at ones from when Jake was little ekkk his voice was so cute! 

16.Where do you shop for your kids?
Next. I love there kids section so much.

17.Favourite make up and skin care product.
Mac Face and body foundation and soft and gentle skin finish. Skin care probably Liz Earle cleanser.

18.Huggies or Pampers?
Pampers always leaked so i founf huggies best for when they were small but we always used Little angels when they got bigger because they are the only ones i have tried that have never leaked! So much better than both pampers and huggies!

19.Have you always wanted kids?
Yes! Always! It is the best thing in the whole world.

20.Best part of being a mum?
Every single thing about it! I love it so much.

I tag everyone :)
