My Little Pony party

We had a My Little Pony Party. {This is how we did it}

Wow, this has been such a whirlwind of a few weeks.  I don’t truly know if I am coming or going.  Besides getting my new online store up and running which you may have already seen, I have also had a 5th birthday party to arrange.  This is rather hectic considering the last post I actually made on this blog was the Minecraft party one I did in March.  Hello!  What’s up with that?

Party fun how to: Let’s have a Minecraft party!

Ok, yes I’m sorry, I was totally meant to post this yesterday but I just couldn’t make it happen.  I promise this is not going to be a long post and I apologize in advance for the image heavy blog but this is only something that can really be done effectively in pictures. All images are my own and I will supply links at the bottom of the post on where to get the things I used, because I got all my ideas and printables from Pinterest. I also want to thank my very willing and helpful cousin-in-law M for helping with the Backdrop and Tablecloth which I will chat about down below.

So, my son turned 8 and has been a Minecraft fan/addict, whatever you want to call it for the last 2 years.  He decided at least a year ago already that at his birthday this year he will have a Minecraft party. Now if you know anything about the game of Minecraft other than it is ridiculously addictive, is that it has so many intricacies and cool factors that it was a total dream to think up a fun party for him.  There really is so much you can do.  We decided that we would be having our party at home this year so we could do just about anything we wanted and not be restricted to a venue.

Got the Perimenopausal moody blues? Here are my tips to managing them.

Ever since I started seeing that I actually had lots of value to share on my blog albeit, in a totally different direction to what I originally intended, all these amazing ideas have been popping into my head of things I really want to share with you. So keeping in the theme of openly talking about what it is like to be journeying through my forties and discovering all sorts of new crazy and sometimes shitty things about myself, I thought I would share with you how I managed to deal with and overcome some horrible issues that my raging (Wanna-be teenage) hormones were doing to me.

Why forty isn’t a dirty word and other musings.

Is age only a number? Well before I turned forty, heck even when I had turned forty that is exactly what I thought.  Since I am now forty plus one year I have come to the stark realization that actually age is exactly that, it is age and boy it can hit you square in the middle of your forehead and make you feel ancient, even before you are 42.

So how do you get yourself out of that way of thinking? Well, there is really only one thing you can do and that is to accept it and move on. It is to be celebrated, not denied.

I thought I would share a few sentiments and thoughts, on why I think forty shouldn’t be considered a dirty word like the world makes you think it is, and why all of us beautiful middle-aged women need to accept that is has to happen, and take the bull by the horns and just move on and make the most of it.  We aren’t dead yet right?

Back to school bliss with Reivilo Stationery

Review post: This post has been a long time coming.  From late December in fact.  I must apologize for taking so long to get it out there but better late than never and as you may have noticed, I have been a little absent from the blog for a while.  As you know schools began […]
