Zombie walk | 1066 Walk of the dead

Last Saturday was an annual parade called the zombie walk or the walk of the dead. Every year 1066 walk of the dead takes part to raise money for charity, this was our first year at taking part and I will definitely be there next year with plenty more gore. Lilly loved it and by the end was trying to scar people with her silly zombie voice. Below is a selection of pictures from the day. 

Not sure why but I really like this photo of when I was getting my make up done

One scary lady, even creeps me out.
A few of the zombies!
Was such an awesome day and was good to know it was for a good cause. Will definetly be better prepared next year and sort out a proper costume to go with the make-up.
I hope you all have a wonderful Halloween, whatever ypu may be up to.

Halloween craft for toddlers

So today Lilly did her first ever Halloween craft with me. I was clearing out her craft cupboard I came across a bag of sweet wrappers and thought about something I could make. So here it is, our sweet wrapper pumpkin, quick and simple.

You will need: - Some card - Sweet wrappers  - Glue - Scissors - Chalk

Firstly draw your pumpkin or other shape onto the card with chalk or light crayon. Next glue the entire shape inside, Lilly did most, I just filled the area in.

Next let your little ones stick down the wrappers which match your theme and picture. We used orange and gold for the face and green for the stalk. make sure all the wrappers are secure and glue down amy over laps.
Next is to cut it out and tidy the edges. To make the face I took the corners of the offcut card and got lilly to stick into place with help of pointing out roughly where.
So simple and cheap to do.

Toddler OOTD | Autumn

I thought I would share Lilly's beautiful autumn outfit. Both these items are from nutmeg, Morrison's. So very affordable and beautiful clothing for all styles. 
She is wearing a pair of navy blue jeggings which pretty much go with everything. These feel very well made and actually look my like jeans. These were £3 a pair.
This top is just adorable. I love the picture on the front of the birds making a scarf for the fox or squirrel. Lol. Very autumnal and cheap at just £2 a top.
No autumn outfit is complete without some sort of boots. These are her favourite which are her minnie mouse wellies. I actually got given these but by the very faded label it looks like George, asda. Lilly would wear these to bed if she could.
Hope you enjoyed

Fbf British Drifting Championship | Lydden Hill

A flash back Friday for you, just back to April when we went to Lydden hill for the weekend to watch The British Drifting Championship. We camped for one night.

Lilly loved camping in the tent and jumping on the airbeds, took her a while to get to sleep but she slept like a log.

Look at these gorgeous pink cars, the speed they can go to. They looked amazing, and sound really nice too. At Lydden hill they have an open pit, which means you can walk around and look at all the cars.

This was one of the best pictures I managed to get of the drifting. Lilly loved watching the cars fly by and got really excited. Shame the first day was a bit of a wash out.

Family picture time of course. The second day was a nice day and the track dried out quite quick. I could not tell you who won or anything like that but was a lovely family weekend.
