I have been blogging for two years now and sadly do not have the room to have a separate blogging space bit still imagine what my space would look like, and often get office envy reading other bloggers posts.
I love the idea of just being able to sit down at a desk and write with no distractions around me, like my own little hide away in a loft, with me, my camera, my computer and a cup of tea.
I would love to have fresh light colours such as a cream or white for the desk as in my opinion it looks a lot cleaner and can brighten the space up. It would also have to have plenty of storage for chargers, note books and the hundreds of pens, pencils and crayons I have acquired since having Lil's.
The desk pictured below is one that I would certainly consider, this is from Argos and looks quite modern with a good amount of storage too. I also love the natural look of the desk, its not too modern and seems very practical, which I think it important.
We were lucky enough to have been sent some very fun items for Lil's to review, the Zimpli Kids Gelli Baff, Slime Baff and Snoball Play. These are all a bit of messy play which Lilly absoloutly loves.
The products themselves are a very reasonable price with prices as low as £2.50 for the smaller boxes and £3 for the Gelli Baff itself.

When making it up you just follow the easy instructions, just 4 cms of water will create a lot of the gelli goo, it is also scented with my other half commenting how it smelt like Jelly. Please take care when you child gets into the bath as it can be slippery.
