Birthday Postcards From Kent Made

I have never had anything personalised for Tilly like a laser cut gift, I don't know why - it just never happened. But we were approached from Chantel at kent-made.co.uk to review a product, and as I thought it would fit in well with Tilly's Birthday, we were more than happy to review it.

The birthday postcard comes as the size of a real postcard and it is made from wood. You can either use it as a permanent birthday card for someone or add it to a gift for a finishing touch that looks natural and classy. Ordering from the website is easy and quick, it's perfect if you have forgotten someone's birthday because you can order a birthday postcard and get it delivered to them. So ordering it is easy, you choose the design that you're looking for and you write in your message and who the postcard is to and from.


You don't get to see the finished article as you're making the order up, but when it arrives you will be happy with the result. Make sure you don't make any mistakes on the order as it won't be able to be rectified once it has been made. You can order a variety of things from Bedroom signs to personalised wooden flowers.

I used the postcard as a gift tag on Tillys birthday gift and it is going to be a cute little keepsake for her. The writing on the postcard is clear and understandable for her to read and also slightly deep set so she can feel her name too. The price of the birthday postcard was £4.99 and they are made to order for you. Here is my special little birthday postcard for Tilly.

Stop Abusing The NHS!

I get so irate when I see people wasting sources on the NHS, I get so pissed off when I see that stupid post shared on Facebook about how easy it is to get a bottle of Calpol for free from the Pharmacy - REALITY CHECK, someone has to pay for it, and that someone is the NHS. It's not a case of it costing the NHS £2 or £3, it costs the NHS the price of a prescription because there needs to be a prescription made for the medicine they are dishing out. Can you imagine if everyone did this? It would put the NHS into more of a deeper crisis than it is already in. People that abuse the NHS like this need to stop and think about what they are doing. If you see this on Facebook, don't share it!

Novel Uses For Bookcases


If you’re a book lover or an avid reader, you probably have bookcases dotted around your home filled with all your favourite books and magazines. Reading can be such a fulfilling past time and it can be so rewarding to lose yourself in a novel and open yourself up to new worlds. Whether it’s adventurous novels or down-to-earth documentaries, books can be a much-needed escape from modern life. With the uprising of e-readers such as Kindles, books have been less popular lately in their full form and more and more people are choosing to turn to the technological equivalent as they take up less storage and are so much easier to travel with.

What's In Your Make Up Bag?

Have you ever wondered what make up people wear? Joanne from opposablethumbsblog.com has challenged me to share whats in my make up bag. I have never done anything like this and bared all from my make up bag, so here goes! I work for Superdrug, so a lot of what you see can be bought in there and it is reasonably priced too. I like high street brands but I do also like the high-end brands too, but the only one that I have ever been satisfied with is Nu Skin Cosmetics.

So, you’ve finally become a mum for the first time. It’s going to be a completely different life from now on—not only will you have a new full-time job of caring for your newborn (or newborns if you gave birth to twins or more), but you will also be needing things that you never needed before as a non-parent. Fellow mums will say that you need this and that, and you yourself have no idea why. In this article, we will tell you exactly what you need as a new parent and exactly why you need them.

Reasons To Visit Bali

All though I travel a lot with Tilly, there are still a few places that are on my bucket list to travel to. Recently I seem to be seeing all over social media that Bali is the place to go, so this is making me want to go even more! Bali has everything you could ever want for a relaxing holiday and sometimes we just need to get away and relax. Bali is perfect for that, so why is Bali such a fab place to go to?

Rocketship Education Puts Children First

Students have to choose their future careers at such a young age and I personally feel that it is too young for a child to be making a lifelong choice. It is important to have the correct support network in school to support students when they choose their future path. That's where school counsellors come into their own.

The Tri-Agency Workforce Initiative of Texas is helping high school counsellors and advisors provide career and college guidance to their students. The initiative was started because of the large workload that guidance counsellors have each year, and through technology, there is a relief. The program is called the Texas OnCourse Academy and is an online course that counsellors can use along with their students to help guide them on a path they choose, whether that is to enter the workforce or attend college after high school. Using an online course makes this kind of training available for everyone to do in their own time because it doesn't matter how long you take to complete it.

Making Parenting Possible For Everyone

Not so long ago it was all about families consisting of mum, dad and 2.4 kids but the world isn't like that anymore. I was a solo parent for many of the years that I bought my own children up and when I went on to have Tilly, I chose to be a solo parent again.

It's 2018 and families come in different dynamics these days. Just because you might have different ideas on parenting, it doesn't mean it's not possible for you to be a parent. I chose to be a single parent and I did it in the 90's when it wasn't as common to be a single parent. I had been married and it hadn't worked out, so I was left to take a journey of parenthood on my own. Of course, they are all grown up now and I think I actually did a pretty good job and here I am doing it again with Tilly.

How To Survive Being A Single Parent

Sometimes, things just don’t work out how you’d planned. And in some of these cases, that can mean the end of a relationship in which there are children involved. Most people don’t plan to go it alone with parenthood; but sometimes that’s just what happens. If you break up with your partner, know that all is not lost – many a single parent has bossed their role to raise a healthy, happy, confident, independent child who grows into a secure and successful adult! Being thrown into the world of single parenthood can be daunting and lonely at first, but it doesn’t stay that way forever. You can rise to the challenge of being your child’s sole parent and do it amazingly!

Here are some valuable pieces of advice from those who have been there, taken on the role of both parents, and made brilliant lives for themselves and their little ones.
