Lilly Outfit of the Day | Perfect for Camping

Image
I haven't shared one of Lil's outfits for a while and I am completely in love with this look so wanted to share it with you all.
We have not long been back from camping, we have had a lovely weekend away in a caravan at a local country show, Rural Past Times. We were away for three days with a mixture of weathers, It really didn't know what to do.
on to the outfit itself, Lilly got herself a beautiful pair of dungaree's from my dad, these are from H&M (£17.99) and are in size 4-5, we got a smaller size then normal as they seemed quite large on her. These are also adjustable at the arm straps and the bottoms are turned up too, I love them. She is wearing a peachy coloured top from F&F (5-6), I am unsure on the price as these were a gift from Nanny. I think that the colour complements the pale denim shade of her dungaree's. She then has her glasses from Specsavers and a cute pink bow from Amazon.

I really do wish that these were mine as they are ridiculously…

Homemade Rainbow Crayons

Image
I wanted to share a little post about a craft that we did a few weeks ago, we created rainbow crayons from loads of old broken crayons and they turned out amazing.
I saw a video for this on Facebook and thought that it would be a great way to sort out Lilly's crayon box as she had so many broken ones that we were going to throw out. This is so simple to recycle these old crayons and create some magic crayons. 
You will need.

Once cool, pop out the crayons and you have some cool crayons.
We love the crayons that we have made, they are really strong and have all mixed very nicely too. If yo…

My Anxiety Story

Image
This story starts back in the summer of 2014 when my symptoms of my anxiety really took hold and I got myself to the doctors for some help.
I have always been more emotional than some people and certainly am a big over thinker of everything in life so I can see traits of anxiety right back to when I was about 12-13. And during my life I have experienced a lot of death and illness and seen a lot of things that you wouldn't want to. 
But around July I noticed that I seemed to be crying a lot for no apparent reason and would sob for a good 15 minutes before I could calm down, my other half got a little bit worries so made me make an appointment with the doctor which I did. When I was the doctor I spoke to him about a few things that went around in my mind a lot and that could maybe contribute to the way I have been over the past few weeks. He decided to refer me to for Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) to see if we could work out a way of controlling these tearful states.
I had th…
