Dads! Do You Talk To Your Daughters About Periods #Pads4Dads Campaign

Did you know that nearly half of all dads in the UK have not talked to their daughters about periods?

Decorating A Child’s Bedroom With A Twist

Decorating a children’s bedroom can be very difficult, especially if you have twin girls as I do. Their characters, personalities and tastes are polar opposites. That means somehow we have to find a theme that both the girls are happy with, and believe me that is something that is incredibly difficult.

Giving The Girls Bedroom A Facelift With New Duvet Covers

We live in a two bedroom bungalow, we have one bedroom and our seven year twin girls share a bedroom. A perfect arrangement you would think. Well not quite!

So when it comes to their bedroom, it’s always very difficult to keep both the girls happy. Their bedroom usually ends being divided into two completely different themes. So here are a few ideas to give a kids bedroom… [Read More]
