My first video and fireworks night

Harrison having a lovely time with Grandma and Grandad.
Well, it's been a pretty eventful day! I have finally uploaded my first vlog on youtube, which you can find here woop woop! I talk about bits and pieces I've found over the last few weeks and loved, including a super cosy jumper (which of course has something sparkly on it) I bought today and a great book I'm reading at the moment. But do you know what I haven't added to the video that I'm so excited about? FROSTED FANCIES! My favourite little cakes in the whole wide world! They are vanilla-y and soft and just so yummy and they remind me that we are fast approaching Christmas season!

SO, fireworks night! Harrison decided that fireworks were 'too noisy' so we just did some quiet ones in our garden. We had a lovely time and still got a free show from the view out of our window all night! I LOVE fireworks - they are so beautiful, they warm my heart. I won't lie, the child in me was a bit upset when Harrison seemed so un-keen on going to a display! But as a lot of you out there know, we adapt and make sacrifices as parents.  Flossie (the cat) didn't seem phased at all by the fireworks; not much bothers Flossie. She's sat curled up on the fluffy rug in front of the fire as I type.

Beautiful sparkler

I hope you enjoy my first video - the editing is a bit naff but I'm sure I'll get better as I go along :)

I hope you all have a lovely rest of the weekend!

Oh hey!

The Bub and Hubby
So this is my very first post. I had better introduce myself! My name is Alice and I am a full time working Mum. (Bloody hard work if you ask me!) I have a husband called Pete, a 2 year old son called Harrison and a cat called Flossie (can't forget her, she pretty much rules the roost). My likes - makeup, beauty, Music (I'm a singer), interior design (Pinterest is the best for help with this), anything sparkly and  just spending time with family and being a Mummy!! My job is a lifestyle in itself - I'm a primary school teacher which takes up quite a lot of my time. I absolutely love it though and wouldn't want it any other way!

This blog is going to include a mixture of lifestyle, babies, beauty and anything else I can think of really! I will add tips, reviews of products and any handy ideas I pick up along the way. Please comment below if there is anything you feel you'd like me to talk about/ give advice on and I will do my best.
