We are now almost half way through the year and it is time for me to reflect on ‘The Best of May’

the best of may

On the 1st of May Em, Amy and I launched our new linky Moving Pictures.  We all love capturing our special family moments on film, so this was a logical next step for us. The month had an exciting start when I announced that I had made it onto the BIBs Shortlist!


I attended my first press event abroad in Rome with Bridgestone and I shared it in My Roman Adventure.  I wrote a post about something that had been playing on my mind for a while and it was very well received, I think a lot of people felt the same as me; Blogging; Am I lucky?

Finding a work life balance

I have recently started to really enjoy vlogging, so I started my own version of Would you rather as a tag and lots of lovely bloggers have played along.  I shared the results of my Rome trip with Bridgestone and what made me change my mind about premium tyres.

I returned to my series 5 Things and penned 5 Things: I love about motherhood, as tough as it is, it really is the best thing I have ever done.  Baby had her first day at Pre School, which was a very big deal for both of us.  Having never left her with anyone other than Mr Hubby, it was a wrench.  My #BlogClub series featured Making old posts works for you, so get making the most of your archive!

I was excited to announce that we are Camp Bestival Bloggers; I can’t wait to experience a festival with my little family. I had my birthday in May and shared 38 lessons for 38 years, how many of them do you share?  My lovely friend Amy over at Mr and Mrs T Plus Three and I launched our new monthly linky, Vlog Stars. We give a theme or a set of questions for you to vlog.  We are so thrilled that it has got lots of lovely ladies vlogging who were too nervous to before.

I also announced that we have been chosen to be Huggies Pull-Ups Ambassadors.  We are so pleased to be working with such a well-known brand during Baby’s potty training. I shared the blog love in 5 Things: I love about my blogger friends.  My friends are genuinely the most amazing thing to come out of blogging for me.

Back to #BlogClub with How to maintain your blog, which summed up all the bits and bobs that you should be doing to ensure your blog runs smoothly.  I started to get in the BritMums spirit and joined in the I’m going to BritMums Live meme, while throwing in a few reasons why I think you should go too.  I can’t believe it is nearly here, I am so excited!


I announced our appointment as Tommee Tippee Ambassadors, we are thrilled to represent such a well-respected brand during 2015.  Then I got the news that we were Finalists in the Brilliance In Blogging Awards.  Words cannot describe how happy this news made me, it really does mean a lot to me.


I shared some tips on how to become a brand ambassador in my blogging series and rounded up our day with friends when we met up with Katy (What Katy Said) and her gorgeous girls.

I feel, without a shadow of a doubt, that blogging has changed my life and I know others feel the same.  So I called upon a few friends to share their stories in Blogging Changed Our Lives.  I thank them all for sharing their inspiring stories.

We brought the month to a close with a trip to Peppa Pig World, which Baby thought was amazing.  I thought it was pretty good too!.

So that was ‘The Best of May’,  let’s see what June holds in store.
