Printing memories

I’m very sentimental at heart…maybe that’s why I take so many photos, the children are growing so quickly I want to remember all these little moments. But like a lot of people these days the photos tend to stay on my phone. So when the lovely Kate from Squared.one got in touch to see if I’d like to review their fridge magnets I jumped at the chance. I had a few made when Pip was little but hadn’t got round to ordering any since so my fridge was missing photos of Milo – this was a great chance to rectify that!

This has been a busy year – Pip has started school so I ordered magnets of her first day, world book day and other little milestones for her.

We had a lovely holiday in Cornwall, visiting the Eden Project, going to the beach and aquarium and Milo had his first pony ride.

I ordered some lovely ones of Milo on his birthday, cooking and smiling (that had to be printed because it’s rare that I persuade him to smile at a camera!).

And we had a couple of fantastic snow days – the first time both children had seen proper snow – these are the memories I want to capture and have on display, and now I get to see them on my fridge and it makes me smile every time.

Squared.one have the option to have both square and round fridge magnets which I really like, and being 7cm in diameter they’re big enough that you can see the photo properly. They also have a lovely glossy finish and the printed colours are true to my original photos. The website is very easy to use – so easy that I could order them on my phone with one hand while feeding Milo with the other! If you want to order some here is the link.

Eat Sleep Love 

This morning I spent a lovely couple of hours at Eat Sleep Love in Blackheath.  Their Blogger’s Breakfast was a great opportunity to meet some local mums and of course check out this new baby and nursery store! 

  
I remember being pregnant the first time round and dragging my heavily pregnant self to John Lewis to try and test drive some prams. Now don’t get me wrong, I love John Lewis…but the baby section at Bluewater is busy! You end up loitering while waiting for a sales assistant to become free, which is fine, but when you’re heavily pregnant with swollen ankles you really can’t be doing with it and it turns into a struggle rather than an enjoyable experience.

This is why I think Eat Sleep Love is onto a winner – it’s a by appointment consultancy, where you can browse the whole shop by yourselves, test out the prams, furniture and baby carriers, and have Laura and her team’s experience and full attention. Don’t worry I’m not being paid to write this I just think it is a brilliant idea and wish it had been around when I was pregnant!

They have also handpicked a great selection of baby and nursery accessories…here’s some of my favourites…

    (Well I think this was Pip’s favourite!)

  Some very cute toy storage by 3 Sprouts!

And I really loved their knitted baby clothes! Laura’s mum hand knits them all in Baby Cashmerino ✨ (mental note to work on my knitting!)   

  
   
I couldn’t leave without buying one of the dinosaur toy baskets for Milo…well it was supposed to be for him, I think Pip might have other ideas… #secondchildproblems 

  
A big thank you to Laura from Eat Sleep Love, her team and Joolz for inviting us and making it such a child friendly (and Mummy-friendly!) morning – it’s the first event like this I’ve been to with both my little ones and it was surprisingly really relaxing (we won’t mention the baby vomit Milo…..!). A big recommendation from me to other mums and mums-to-be 💗
