Play-Doh Fun with the Kiddies

Half term is over and the kiddies went back to school yesterday. It was a very busy half term week with us making the most of the lovely sunshine. We spent plenty of time outdoors with the twins riding their bikes and scooters. We also visited a soft play centre and our local playground. The kids enjoy being outside, especially my son. He could spend the whole day outside if I let him. My daughter on the other hand loves the outdoors but would be happy to stay indoors all day if I wanted too.

I enjoyed the time outdoors myself and I am seriously missing them now that they have resumed school. Always good to make the most of the holidays when they come. Are you in the UK? How was your half term week?

The kiddies also spent time playing with their new Play-Doh Kitchen Creations Set. They enjoyed making donuts and all sorts of Play-Doh food. It was fun to watch them in their element, it never gets old.

They made a proper mess of the floor but it was worth it. They played with the set for almost 2 hours. I was amazed at how much attention and determination they put into creating Play-Doh creations. Normally, they play with a new toy for a few minutes (an hour tops if it is a great toy) for the first time, before tossing it away for something else, but this was different. I am not too surprised because I know how much they love playing with Play-Doh, but I think their love for the brand has increased since they started primary school.

They play with Play-Doh a lot at school as it helps with the pencil grip. My 5-year-old son previously had issues with that like many boys his age do, but he has now improved massively. His handwriting is also a lot better now which is amazing.

Outfit Post – Knocking on Spring Door

*Affiliate link.

 

The weather has been amazing here in the last few days. We have been enjoying sunny afternoons and it feels like we are knocking on spring door already. But I have a feeling we will still have some more winter weather before spring officially starts. The weather forecast already shows there will be some rain later in the week. How is the weather at your end?

I wore this outfit some days ago. The colourful beautiful dress is a new wardrobe addition. I got it as a birthday gift and I really like it. It is definitely a piece I can see myself wearing multiple times in the spring/summer months. I love the fact that it is colourful and the loose fit is really comfy.

The crossbody bag is a new addition too! I got it while holidaying in Portugal last October. It was love at first sight for me. I liked the simplicity of it and the fact that it was dead cheap (€12) and could serve as a souvenir made me got for it! I love buying souvenirs when I travel. They remind me of the holidays I have taken and they allow me take a bit of the city/country I am visiting away with me.

I am happy I bought this bag. It works great for when I need a little bag for all my bits. I decided to style my look with this bag because it finished off the look beautifully.

Style tips for your next date night

*Collaborative post.

It can be difficult to decide what to wear for a date, especially if you’re doing something new. Whether you’re heading out for a romantic meal or spending more time together outdoors, we’ve come up with the ultimate style guide for 2019.

 

Watching a film

Heading to the cinema is one classic date that many of us enjoy. Of course, you still want to make an effort for the big day, but you need to be comfy when you’re snuggling during the film.

Jeans and heeled boots are a perfect option for this type of date. Pair your black skinny jeans with a bright Bardot top and cute tote bag (perfect for hiding snacks as well as looking stylish!). Bring some colour to your outfit with animal print ankle boots or chunky printed scarf.

Grabbing some food first? Choose something dressier like a loose-fitted T-shirt dress and over-the knee boots.

Romantic walk for two

Explore the outdoors with your other half. Of course, you can expect lower temperatures in the winter, so you need to wrap up well!

Prioritise practicality when it comes to exploring outdoors. Add layers to your outfit with a cosy fleece, padded puffer jacket and a cute bobble hat. If you’re planning on going out to lunch on your way home, consider wearing a dressy top under your layers, just in case your other half wants to snap a photo of you as a memory of your perfect day.

 

Dining out

You deserve to go all out every so often with a fine dining meal! It might be a restaurant that you and your other half have been wanting to visit for a while, but you’ve been saving it for a special occasion. With some fine dining venues operating a strict dress code, what should you wear?

Dress formal in one of your floor length dresses. Many women go for a fancy look when they’re heading to a posh restaurant so it’s unlikely that you’ll look out-of-place. If you feel overdressed, pair yours with flat shoes and a short jacket. Alternatively, you could pair a midi dress with heeled boots and a stylish clutch. Go for a statement print and flirty frills to channel date night vibes — but remember to avoid overly bright tones.

 

A few drinks

There’s nothing better than letting your hair down with your other half over a few drinks — what should you wear?

Channel romance and love vibes with a pink mini dress, scarlet lacy bodysuit or a bold ruby-coloured jumpsuit. Or, stay classic in a LBD and accessorise by adding a pop of colour to your outfit with red accessories. Elevate your ensemble with statement stilettos or barely there block heels. Finish the look with dainty jewellery such as heart-shaped earrings and a pendant necklace.

Staying in

Save your money and have a cost night in for two. Think a candlelit home-made meal for two followed by popcorn and your favourite film. You can still dress up though, even if you do want to get changed into your pyjamas straight after dinner!

Maximise comfort levels since you’re in the house! You could opt for an accordion midi skirt, paired with an off-the-shoulder crop top. Or, choose an unstructured jumpsuit that’ll look great if you decide to head out after eating!

There’s no need to stress about your footwear here so accessorise in other ways with hooped earrings and a matching bracelet.
