Easter Egg Bath

2nd 04 2018. Posted in Magical Moments at Home by elliekelly


It has been ALL about Easter in my house this week, I’m making the most of work being quiter and Easter is quite possibly my favourite holiday. I love Christmas but it’s all work, work, work in December and April is a much calmer month.

I got my inspiration for this bath when I was looking into ways to do my Glow Bath. It was on Happy Toddler Play Time

I didn’t give Neive the bowls and the spoons this time as she was having a quite a nice time just throwing them and we started moving them around based on their colour so I thought I would keep the other bits back for her bath tonight.



Neive is starting to understand colours, it’s still a bit hit and miss but she did have fun moving the eggs from one end of the bath to the other based on the colours (with a little help).



I got a great tip on Instagram for an ice play bath so i will be doing that one soon! Do you have any favourite bath themes?

Science Party

23rd 03 2018. Posted in Parties by elliekelly


I’m posting this party just a little late, and I’m going to totaly blame Neive.

My party company Buttons does a pretty cool Science party with dry Ice and slime. After chatting with Jo from the Pretty Little Party Shop it sounded just what her daughter was looking for. So Sarah from the team did the entertainment and Jo did all the themeing and made the house look amazing!

I would have loved to have been at the party myself but, (this is where i blame Neive for not posting the pic’s sooner) I had a 9 day old baby at the time. I rember Jo sending me the photos but then … well Nevie is now 21 months.

Any way. Sarah had a blast and Jo’s daughter said it was the best party ever. Win Win Win.

Sarah started with the touchable bubbles and then there was a dry ice show inc bubbles bombs, screamming metal, tube foam and making smoke signals.


And to finish of the science they child all made oobleck slime and exploded some coke in the garden with metoes.



I am so delighted to be sharing this party with you, even if a little late.

You can take a look at the Pretty Little Party Shop and all there amazing party bits here

  With your own ruler. In the dictionary is says “the attainment of wealth, position, honours, or the like” I used to measure my business / life like this. How much money have I made, what new things have I brought, do I have more clients, have I worked with bigger brands and more celebrities this year than last. It’s exhausting. It’s a […]
