Shopping Hauls Round-up 610

Shopping Hauls Round-up: It’s called retail therapy for a reason

There’s a very good reason why shopping is often referred to as ‘retail therapy’. Psychologists have long asserted that treating yourself to something from the shops has a ‘lasting, positive impact on mood’. I’d absolutely have to concur! So when BritMums agreed to take me on as their Round-up Editor for Shopping Hauls, I was […]

Mums & Tots Round-up: Preparing siblings for a baby

Introducing the idea of a new baby to a sibling can be such a worry. You don’t want to make them feel pushed out or for them to resent their little brother or sister. If this is you right now then you are not alone, in fact I have had so many conversations around the […]
