I have put together this recommendations page to easily list all the products, services and tools that I think are valuable. This way you can easily find heaps of great products and resources in one place.
Time-Saving, Convenience & Organisational Tools
HelloFresh. HelloFresh is a food delivery service. They deliver a box of ingredients to you along with some simple recipe cards, all you have to do is put it all together to make a delicious and healthy meal. Boxes can be customised for the number of people and any dietary requirements. You are also not locked into any subscription so can cancel at any time. Read my full review here.
Graze. Graze is another food delivery service but this time it’s delicious snacks. These are ideal if you always like to have something in your bag for when your out and about or like me are too lazy to prepare something healthy! You get a choice of how often you receive the boxes and also what type of snacks you like. They also regular;y have some amazing deals and offers.
Ocado. Ocado is one of my favourite discoveries since arriving back in the UK. They are an online Supermarket that sells their own brand as well as Waitrose brand (From September 2020 they will swap Waitrose to Marks & Spencer) They have great discount offers for delivery but I find they have a great product range plus amazing Customer Service.
If you would like a £20 voucher off your first Ocado shop then please email me for your discount here.
The Journal Shop. I only recently discovered The Journal Shop when I was on the hunt for a Monthly Planner. The London based company have all sorts of diaries, planners and stationery that you can’t help but love. You can get 10% off when you subscribe to their newsletter.
Paperchase. I love paperchase for all their organisational tools, fun notebooks and stationery for the Kids.
Kids Pass. Kids Pass is a membership that gives you discounts of up to 57% off of 100s of UK attractions, family days out and cinemas.
SnapFish. Snapfish is my go-to for printing any photos I have. Each year I also get a calendar printed for Myself, Mum and Gran. Each month features photos of the boys from the same month last year. I also got a few larger prints done to hang on the wall. Before making any purchases, keep an eye on the banner at the top of the homepage as they generally have some great offers and discounts there.
Buy Subscriptions. I am currently a subscriber of the Good Food Magazine. I love their recipes and I like to have something come each month that is just for me. There are a number of different Magazines you can choose from, you can check them out here.
Book Depository. It’s rare that book depository doesn’t have a book that I’m after. I love how they also have free delivery with no minimum spend.
Firebox. Firebox is perfect for finding some slightly unusual or personalised gifts.
Prezzybox. If I can’t find what I’m looking for on Firebox then Prezzybox usually has something!
Stuff For Kids And Babies
My Bump 2 Baby. This is Googles #1 Baby and Toddler directory. This UK based site and app cover everything from pregnancy – pre-school. You can check out articles from many different bloggers (including myself!) as well as listings for local businesses.
Next. You just can’t beat Next for kids clothes and shoes, I even bought half of Flinn’s school uniform there this year. They even have an amazing next day delivery service.
Wonderbly. I am absolutely in love with the books from Wonderbly. My boys each have their own personalised copy of “The Little Boy Who Lost His Name” and the older two also have “Where Are You”? You can’t get more of a personalised book, it’s an absolute treasure.
Starting School Books. I Am Absolutely Too Small For School by Lauren Child and Harry And The Bucket Full Of Dinosaurs by Ian Whybrow are two books that were recommended to me by Flinn’s preschool teacher to help him with the transition to big School. They are a great way to bring up the topic and any worries or fears your child may have in an indirect way.
Mrs Mactivity. This is an online resource of educational and fun activities for your child. Mrs Mactivity is suitable for ages 3-11. New resources and activities are constantly being uploaded so there is always something new.
Marks And Spencers. I love M&S for school uniform and kids winter coats.
Clarks. You can’t fault Clarks for School Shoes and Babies First Shoes/ Walkers.
The Works. I have found a few cool toys at The Works lately, along with some simple but essential stationery for the older boys.
Weleda. Weleda is my number one brand for baby care. It’s 100% natural and an absolute pleasure to use. I have used a few of their other products for myself and I have never been disappointed.
Mama’s & Papa’s. I love Mama’s & Papa’s for their collections of Nursery furniture. My change table is from here and I love it. I have also picked up some gorgeous little outfits in their sales.
Health & Fitness
Healthy Mummy. Healthy Mummy is a weight loss program aimed at Mums. It’s a membership that gives you access to 100’s of workout videos that you can do at home as well as access to 1000’s of recipes. They have monthly challenges you can take part in. Plus, delicious smoothies and recipe books you can purchase without being a member.
Nutribuddy. Nutribuddy is a meal replacement shake that is perfect for busy Mums. They are vegan and free of any nasty chemicals. The shakes come in a variety of flavours and are also sugar-free. You can check out my full review here.
TOTM. TOTM are organic pads and tampons. They are so much better for your body (and the environment) than regular pads and tampons that are filled with harmful chemicals. If you visit their website you are also able to get them on a subscription basis so they are sent monthly ensuring you are always prepared for when your period arrives.
LWR Fitness. If short exercise programs working towards specific goals are your thing then check out Lucy Wyndham Read. Lucy has a YouTube channel full of loads of easy to follow workouts that take anywhere from 4 minutes. I particularly love her 7-day workouts.

LoveLula. For any other low tox products, LoveLula is also fantastic. If you are new to the low tox world and not sure what brands to try then their beauty box is a must. You are sent a small box of different products to try each month. You can choose how often to receive the box and they are also a great idea for a gift.
Making Money At Home
Fiverr. Fiverr is a great place to make some money from any skills you might have. If you have any kind of digital skills or can create recipes, proofread, provide horoscopes then you can sell your services on Fiverr.
Upwork. Upwork is similar to Fiverr but you are more likely to find long term work. If you are a VA or a have any Social Media skills this is where you want to be.

PromoRepublic. PromoRepublic is my automating tool for Facebook and Twitter. You can also search, edit and use graphics within this app.
PostPlanner. PostPlanner is another Facebook and Twitter Scheduler but has the added benefit of being able to search for viral content from other people social channels that you can then automatically share to your own.
Later. Later is my favourite app for scheduling Instagram Posts (including carousel) and stories. They always seem to be ahead of the game and as a subscriber, I get email tips that are always really helpful.
Canva. Canva is where I create and edit all my images. There is so much you can do in here with all their templates and free images. I have everything I need in their free plan but if you want more they do also have a paid version.
Deposit Photos. This is where I get all my stock photos. I don’t think you can get any free from here but I got an amazing deal on AppSumo of 100 images for $49. I have nearly used up all my free credits but once it comes round again I will definitely be getting it.
