Review: The Woods Farm – Farm Stay in the beautiful Jervis Bay

Review: The Woods Farm – Farm Stay in the beautiful Jervis Bay

With my upcoming 30th I knew I wanted to plan a little family getaway. Somewhere we could relax but wasn’t too far from Sydney. We had been to Jervis Bay a number of times and loved the laid back lifestyle, beautiful beaches and friendly locals so when a friend had recommended The Woods Farm I decided to look into it.

The Woods Farm is described as Luxury Farm Accommodation. Their cabins are self contained and all have three bedrooms, air con, premium foxtel and more. There is also daily animal feeding, yoga classes, a country pool, free bike hire and a park for Rosie to play. This place really sounded and looked like the perfect place for us to visit as a family. So we booked up to stay for 3 nights.

Upon booking you can choose from a selection of their 8 individually styled and themed houses. The Flowerhouse instantly appealed to me as it had a pink door. And well….we all know I love PINK. So it was a no-brainer for me.

The day had came for us to travel down from Sydney, With a little pit stop it took us around 3 hours and as we arrived the heavens opened. It started absolutely torrential raining but we didn’t let that dampen our spirits. We had been texted a code to simply enter into the door of our house when we arrived so there was no long check in process and we could get settled instantly.

The house really did not disappoint. It was styled to perfection. So quirky yet luxurious. I knew we were in for a fabulous few days. The rain soon cleared up, the kids went to bed and Robert decided to get the firepit going. We sat rugged up next to the fire, enjoying each others company whilst sharing a bottle of Red. The perfect end to my 20’s.

Our nights were so restful, The beds were SO comfortable and there was minimal fuss from our two girls. They clearly liked their surroundings too. Winning! The first morning i woke to a house filled with balloons as it was my birthday. Hello 30! I should also add, when we arrived there was a box of goodies waiting for me from the lovely management. Such a nice touch!

The rain cleared up and the sun was shining for the majority of our stay, there was kangaroos outside our window every morning and the grounds were stunning. There really is something about being in nature that is good for the soul. We went to the daily feedings of the animals every morning at 9am and what an experience it was! Rosie absolutely loved each and every animal and ensured they all got fed equally, bless her. The Goats were oh so cheeky with the two smaller Goats jumping up at us to get our attention and food pellets. They quickly became Rosie’s favourite. We enjoyed fresh eggs from the chicken coop for breakfast each day followed by a play in the park for Rosie.

Lunch times would roll around and we noted that there was a wood fired pizza oven in the herb garden. Robert was keen to give this a go so we made Pizza dough from scratch and started our oven. It was such a fun activity to do with our toddler Rosie, She loved helping us knead the dough and add the toppings. We did this twice as we loved it so much the first time. It was a little cold for us to use the pool but in summer this would be perfect for an afternoon dip.

Jervis bay itself is such a beautiful area. The beaches are just so stunning and the national parks are so fun to explore. One afternoon we explored Booderee National Park and stopped at some wonderful beach spots. Little miss Rosie, ever the explorer was splashing in puddles and fell right in, cutting our time there short as of course, I forgot to pack spare clothes.

With so much to do, see and explore in the local area, it really is the perfect spot for families.

We were approaching the end of our trip and I was so not ready for our little holiday to end so we decided to stay another night as they had some availability and they were so accommodating.

Our days were filled with enjoying each others company as a family without the need to be anywhere. The beauty and relaxed nature of the The Woods Farm really did give us such a break from the hustle and bustle of Sydney.

I would recommend this farm stay to all and since returning have raved about it! It really does have it all and we can’t wait to go back! Have a browse through my photos to see just how gorgeous this place is! They also do weddings and events and honestly i now want to get married here. Just got to get a ring first haha. They even have Glamping tents that look so cool. So if you’re looking for a getaway not too far from Sydney either as a couple, with family or friends then look no further as this place is just plain fabulous.

Hit me up with any questions you may have as I’m always happy to answer! This isn’t sponsored at all just wanted to share with you all how much of fun time we had.

Happy Holidaying.

Review: The Milk Genie by Pumpables

Review: The Milk Genie by Pumpables

For a breastfeeding mama a good thing to invest in is a decent pump. Last pregnancy a friend gave me one of her old breast pumps. I was super grateful but it was so loud and didn’t work quite as well as I would like. This time around I knew I wanted a new pump but with so many out there I wasn’t sure which to choose. One of my Insta mama friends recommended The Milk Genie by Pumpables. Not only is it affordable it’s also really quiet meaning it doesn’t wake the baby or disturb my Netflix and pump sessions.

Here are some features I LOVE:

3 Breast shield sizes are in the box – meaning you’ll be able to ensure you get the right fit

Easy to assemble and clean

Rechargeable battery – Never run out of power!

SO quiet – Like seriously, super quiet!

Delivery is free and takes 1-4 business days so there’s not much time to wait between ordering and pumping!

2 year warranty – So good!

It has a Pump2Bag system so you can pump directly into breast milk storage bags.

I’ve had great results using the Milk Genie and I’m so happy with how its working for my little family and I. I definitely believe that this has been made with mums in mind as it really is so convenient. Another thing that I think they are doing right is there fabulous customer service which is so important for any company you’re purchasing from.

So if you or a friend are expecting and looking at buying a pump be sure to check out their range of products on their website using the following link: https://pumpables.co?raf=ref1013281

Happy Pumping

Spring Cleaning

Spring Cleaning

As a busy mum sometimes my jobs pile up without me even realising it. I’m a very organised person (well I like to think so) and love a good sort out but sometimes there isn’t enough hours in the day which I know all you mamas can relate too. As we are coming up to spring here in Australia I decided to have a big clear out, and tidy up every room in my house.

It was a daunting task but it had to be done. I cleaned kitchen cupboards, bathrooms, bedrooms, endless supply of clothes to give to charity and slowly but surely my house was becoming much cleaner and a lot more organised. Don’t get me wrong I tidy weekly, sometimes daily but there is no better feeling than a nice clean home. Am I right?

One thing that I feel like I constantly have to tackle is my floors. As you fellow mamas know they do not stay clean for long. I didn’t realise how much damage my toddler could do with a granola bar! I’m forever vacuuming, mopping, sweeping. I swear its easier to just keep them dirty but well you know…germs – I definitely do not want them hanging around.

One item that I have recently tried out is the VAX steam mop – Not only is it quick and effective it also can be used on different floors. Whether that be your bathroom, kitchen or even your carpets for a freshen up. The Vax Steam Fresh is a powerful steam cleaner ideal for hygienically cleaning sealed hard floors, which combined with specially formulated Vax Steam Detergent, breaks down grime, neutralises odours and eliminates 99.9% of harmful bacteria. It breaks down grease and grime which leaves floors sparkling. I also really like how lightweight and easy to use it is. It’s only 3.0kg and took very little time to set up and get started on my floors.

One feature I also LOVE is the detachable handheld steamer making cleaning grout within your tiles or shower super easy. No more scrubbing for what seems like hours. See some before and after photos below which show just how clean it makes tiles and floors.

Not heard of Vax before? Vax is a complete floorcare brand offering a range of products for all in home cleaning tasks. They provides products that provide both efficient and effective results.

If you would like to give this or any of their other products a try then Vax is sold through a range of retailers including;Bunnings Warehouse, Harvey Norman, The Good Guys, JB Hi-Fi Home, Bing Lee etc.

Cleaning made easy! Be sure to give it a go and let me know what you think.

Happy Cleaning

Here we go again…ROUND TWO

Here we go again…ROUND TWO

So if you have been following our journey on Instagram then you will know that we are expecting our second baby at the end of this year.

Rosie will be very nearly 2 and to say i’ll have my hands full is an understatement. Lots of parents do it, some a closer age gap and others choose a bigger age gap. I really don’t think there is the perfect time so we decided earlier this year to embark on the next adventure and officially start “trying” (Basically means just have more sex right?)

It took us a good few months with Rosie and we had (naively) assumed that it would be the same this time. WRONG. Yup, it happened the first month. I honestly still cant believe it happened that quickly. My heart goes out to all you ladies travelling along the trying to conceive journey. It can be a long road for many so I’m very thankful that it was able to happen so quickly for us despite my history.

 After the initial excitement of seeing that positive test I couldn’t help but feel a mix of emotions. Obviously I was incredibly happy, after all it was what we wanted BUT some thoughts were flying around my head that were totally different the second time.

Like…..will I ever sleep again? We finallllllly have Rosie in such a good routine and now I’m about to add a newborn to the mix…Oh great sure, what a good idea that is.

And what about all the stuff we have to buy? Ahhhh hang on – we have bags loads of Rosie’s clothes that baby can wear and if its a boy then he can totally wear pink too right?

First time round we really had no idea what we were getting ourselves in for. Well we kind of did but you don’t REALLY know until you become a parent yourself am i right? Its a wild ride with many ups and downs and just as you think you have got it nailed they change, their needs change and you are back to square one. I certainly feel a lot more prepared but I also have the dread too. Is that normal? The birth, the crazy post natal emotions, sleepless nights and trying to work out just what those cries mean. It is pretty overwhelming but what I do know is that despite all of that – we have totally got this. Sometimes you have just got to enjoy the ride and take each day as it comes so that is what we plan to do.

All you second,third, fourth (and so on) time mamas, I would love to hear your advice and recommendations on the transition into growing your family. How did your first born handle it? What were the challenges? And of course the benefits too! Please drop me a comment here or DM on Instagram. I would LOVE all of your expertise.

So yes, here we go again. Ready or not

Peace out ladies

The Benefits of Op-Shopping

The Benefits of Op-Shopping

Who loves to op shop? Now I’m a girl who loves shopping, i could shop all day long, any day of the week. I’m going to throw it out there and say that my favourite shopping experience is always when I’m op-shopping! There’s something about going to your local op-shop and rummaging through all the bargains and deciding what goodies you can take home to revamp, reuse and recycle! 

I love that each of the clothes on the racks all have a story. Memories were created in them and now the possibilities are endless for their next journey and new owners. The fact that you can create new high end fashions that you see in magazines but at a low, affordable price but STILL look and feel like you just jumped off a catwalk. Now that is something i love!

There really is something for everyone in an op-shop – just look around your local and check out the array of people in store. There’s always such a mix! Old, young and the super hip and trendy. I have many pieces which I’ve purchased that people can’t believe i bought at an op shop. The possibilities are endless and the bargains are there to be found.

You may of seen on my Instagram that i attended my local St Peters Salvos in Tempe Sydney last week. They recently showcased a new layout that has been designed to give shoppers a more satisfying experience when they shop. There are more checkouts to reduce delays, additional dressing rooms and curated spaces across the store. My personal favourite is The Salvos Street Boutique. It’s is a brand new area, fitted out with second-hand curios and designer pieces, created to encourage fashion-forward, budget conscious consumers to shop at their local Salvos Stores and discover affordable fashion whilst helping the community and the environment. What is not to love about that? 

As part of their new St Peters store revamp they held a Fashion show hosted by the wonderful Faye De Lanty which showcased 10 fabulous looks she created all with op shop goodies. She reinvented the looks and gave each piece a new lease of life. The stunning models of all shapes, sizes and styles strutted their stuff down the runway showing off each outfit with such sass! I certainly left with much excitement to get shopping and get creative with my fashion choices.

         

 

         

 

  It’s safe to say that with all the new goodies you buy the wardrobe space gets a little tight. Which is why it’s also important to donate your unwanted goods to your local Salvos. Those wishing to donate to Salvos Stores can ring to have their items collected or deliver their donation during normal business hours to their nearest Salvos Store. Donations should not be left after hours outside Salvos Stores, as these are often stolen or damaged by the weather.

Salvos Stores fund community work across a range of areas including aged care, drug and alcohol rehabilitation, crisis and support accommodation, youth support and more. By shopping and donating at your community Salvos Store you are supporting the mission and programs of The Salvation Army. Salvos Stores nationally each year, is providing $35 million for the good works of The Salvation Army. Find your nearest Salvos Stores by entering your postcode at: www.salvosstores.org.au 

 

 

So head on down to your local and get shopping!! Please post your favourite op shop finds and be sure to tag or direct message me on Instagram @missmummyandhermini

I can’t wait to see you all looking fabulous!

Happy Shopping!

Review: The Baby Unicorn Manifesto

Review: The Baby Unicorn Manifesto

We all know how much I love unicorns as well as anything magical. After all, Rosie’s first Birthday was unicorn themed so we do have lots of unicorn goodies in our home.

So when I recently received a book named “The Baby Unicorn Manifesto” I was beyond excited to read it to Rosie.

Reading is so important, It helps develop our little ones in many different ways. They learn different sounds, language and it can help them start to recognise words. It’s great for their curiosity and assists their imagination to grow. That’s not all, Reading can help children deal with their feelings and understand different emotions. Sometimes it’s hard to find the time, we all lead busy lives but I believe this is an important step in our children’s routines that can really help them in the long run.

 

We added reading to our evening routine early on and now she really looks forward to her bed time story, And if I’m honest, I do too. Its a nice way to wind down the day is pretty soothing for both of us, Oh and lets not forget daddy too. I also see it as a bonding exercise for us. I relish the cuddles I get as we snuggle up to a good book together.

My first impression upon opening this book was the beautiful illustration by Nathalie Beauvois on the front cover. Throughout the book the illustration gets better and better. Stunning colours and magical scenes. Enough to inspire us all. The story to go with this book is just as pleasant. The message is to help children understand how capable, special and powerful they truly are. To help build the self-esteem of our little ones and teach them that they can be anything they want. The possibilities are endless in this world and I want Rosie to know just how loved she is and that she can accomplish and be anything she wants to be, And this book inspires that. A beautiful story and a reminder to us that we have unlimited potential from the day we are born.

It is certainly a unique book with a very powerful message and I could not recommend this book enough to you and your little baby unicorns.

Let their imaginations run wild.

Review: Paint and Play

Review: Paint and Play

We all want our kids to learn and grow but also be entertained at the same time. If you have watched any of my recent Instagram stories you will see that Rosie and I have been attending Paint and Play in Sydney.

I live local but had never heard about it, it wasn’t until one afternoon that I started to google ‘Things to do for baby and toddlers near me’ that I came across their information.

Located in Alexandria, they have both inside and outdoor activities. All the experiences and activities aim to allow children to express their thoughts and feelings, practice and develop their skills, help the children to think creatively and learn how to solve problems and to develop early language, numeracy and literacy skills, while having fun in a safe and stimulating environment.

The sessions run on a Monday and Thursday each week between 10am and 12pm.

The first hour is more of a free play, the kids can go around each activity and play until their hearts content. I was really impressed with the variety of activities that they had on offer. Everything from painting and playdoh to dress ups and puzzles. The activities are also rotated on a weekly basis to go along with the ‘theme’ that they are learning about which means there’s always something new. The location itself is very clean, bright and safe for all the little ones too.

The session is broken up by a small morning tea in a separate room with plenty of space and yummy snacks for everyone to refuel before a more structured play time for the duration of the session.

The kids then all gather around and they learn fun rhymes, songs and also play instruments such as tin can drums to music. It’s a great way for your child to interact with other children in more of a class style second half. However if your little one doesn’t quite have the attention span just yet then they are still free to play with the other activities or play on the equipment outside.

You can go for part of it or all of it and there is no booking required. It’s a wonderful morning for both you and you child and I can tell you from experience that your little ones will need a nice long nap after which is a total mum win!

For more information and details on pricing, whats on and parties visit their website:

https://www.paintandplay.com.au/

Here is a few snaps of us enjoying our time there:

 

 

 

So if you are in Sydney then be sure to visit, you won’t be disappointed.

​Happy Painting and Playing!

A magical unicorn party…. on a budget!

A magical unicorn party…. on a budget!

There is no doubt that there is a new trend around. Everywhere I look there are UNICORNS!

Slippers, clothes, bags, jewellery and not to mention the delicious UNICORN food! Cakes, milkshakes, bagels and even coffee! It is a trend I have been loving so as it was approaching to Rosie’s first birthday I just knew exactly what the theme was going to be!

First up was DECORATIONS. In every shop I went to there was some form of fun unicorn decorations to be had! However it was KMART AUSTRALIA that supplied most of my goods. (KMART IS MY FAVOURITE!)

I knew I had to have these napkins the moment I saw them and at a great price of $2 per pack. Total Bargain and As for plates we went with this pretty pink, purple and silver pattern. Not technically unicorn but VERY dreamy.

    

I blew up some pink and white balloons and attached them to the ends of our Happy Birthday Banner and hung this up above our table. We enjoyed a bbq on the day as well as food with sprinkles! Fairy bread, cupcakes, marshmallows. Lots of sweet treats to be had. We managed to find many different Unicorn pieces that we could reuse for Rosie’s bedroom. Such as frames, light up box and dreamy sleepy eyes.

   

THEN THERE’S THE CAKE….A friend had volunteered her time to bake a cake for Rosie’s party. I was thrilled as she makes the most delicious grazing boards so knew this would be good. I didn’t expect just how good! Take a look at this nothing short of STUNNING unicorn cake which is covered in edible glitter. As good as it looked it tasted even better. WINNER. I know if I had of attempted this it would of failed as I’m no good in the kitchen. I do try though. If you would like Sarah to do a cake for a party in Sydney – Let me know!

  

Another addition to the party was this giant wooden photo prop that I made Rob make (he is so handy). I decorated it with wooden letter pack from Kmart (IS THERE ANYTHING THEY DON’T DO) and a pack of gems. I encouraged all our guests to stand behind and take photos so that we would have a nice keepsake to look back on. They turned out great!

  

We also decided to do our own cake smash shoot. I have seen some really creative shots and wanted ours very simple yet floral, and a little bit magical. I bought a Woolworth $4 sponge cake and topped it with whipped cream and sprinkles. I really wasn’t prepared for how messy this would get. Rosie just loved playing with the cake and within minutes it was everywhere. She just made a mess, didn’t really eat much. We bought a $3 Unicorn hairband (Kmart again) as her head piece. Usually she would rip it off but she was way too interested in the cake!

  

  

 

All in all the party went so well and we didn’t spend a fortune. You can find all of the goodies bought for Rosie’s party at Kmart Australia by visiting their website

www.kmart.com.au

Rosie had a wonderful party and so did we. It was so nice to celebrate her first year of life. I best get thinking for next year’s theme!

Magical Unicorns dust to you all!

Making it through the first year

Making it through the first year

ONE. My baby is one years old. How did that go by so fast? She is no longer this tiny baby but a cheeky, energetic little toddler (blink and you’ll miss it I swear) On the lead up to her first birthday I have been reflecting back on this past year and all I can say is WE MADE IT. We made it through the newborn stage, the sleepless nights, the weaning, the teething, the exhaustion and a truck load of laundry(which unfortunately is never ending). At the time all these things seemed like they would last forever, but now just 12 little months down the line we are hitting the toddler stage and looking back all I can remember are the smiles, the giggles, the fun bath times, the first family trips and a whole lot of love.

 20180116_211722    

Life before children is certainly easier, you have more freedom, you can shower and do your hair in peace, you can go ANYWHERE without having to think whether or not its baby friendly. Life was great pre-Rosie, we ate out, went on fancy holidays and had superb social lives but I don’t miss it and I honestly wouldn’t change it. Becoming a mum means i get to experience everything again for the first time through her eyes. The magic of seeing your child’s world light up at new things she is learning and seeing everyday is just so wonderful. Don’t get me wrong parenting is HARD. I guess I didn’t realise just how hard it would be, but it really is the most rewarding job you’ll ever have.

As a new parent you also learn new skills that you may not of realised you even possessed. So here is a list of all the wonderful things you learn in that first year.

PATIENCE – we have to wait 9 whole months to meet our babies after all but that’s just the beginning where patience comes in.

PESERVERANCE – Persevering through breastfeeding, sleepless nights, Screaming babies and working out whats wrong. Perseverance is key.

MULTITASKING – Cooking food, Feeding baby whilst on the phone and putting a load of washing in. ALL AT THE SAME TIME. Yep, we can do it all.

SURVIVING ON LITTLE SLEEP – You CAN actually survive on minimal sleep – BARELY though ill add.

THE ABILITY TO WORK OUT WHAT YOUR BABIES CRY MEANS – This takes practice but we obviously nail that too.

THE ONE HANDED EVERYTHING – whether it be changing a nappy, eating food, texting, you can literally do everything one handed. HIGH FIVE!

FORMULA 1 PRAM SKILLS – Oh yes, try me. I can do anything with that thing at top speeds, swerving in and out, up and down. Just call me Lewis Hamilton of the pram world.

These are just a small number of skills we learn and I guess as parents we will continue to learn and grow as our little ones do. As a first time parent you really don’t know what to expect or how you are going to deal with things. I for one, am always questioning how i dealt with the latest tantrum or how I can get her to eat better. The list goes on. It’s not just the newborn stage that tests us, that is just the beginning of our challenges. Now I have a toddler who wants to explore everything and I cannot let my guard down even for a second for fear of her licking the plug sockets. That raises the question – have i baby-proofed everything? Well all I can say is I hope so. I’m sure babies have this sense that you don’t want them to go in a certain area and then BAM they are there. I’m forever moving Rosie into safe areas – like her playpen. Which she loves and is filled with fun toys she can play with but i’m sure she would rather play with the TV remote half the time.

 

      

 

The time goes too quick and I find myself constantly stuck between wishing she was still a tiny baby to loving her new found independence and her little personality which is starting to shine. That being said, The first year is now over, she has reached her first birthday and we managed to keep her alive and healthy and we are still sane! Who knows what the next year will bring but I look forward to the challenges and memories we make together as a family. Here’s to the next 12 months.

Happy Birthday little one.

Getting a good night’s sleep and what’s really lurking in your mattress?

Getting a good night’s sleep and what’s really lurking in your mattress?

Sleep. Oh how I love sleep. Actually I have always loved my sleep, I have been gifted with being able to sleep anywhere, at anytime. Pro-Napper if you will.

I’m a girl that needs a solid 8 hours minimum. That is just what I need to function. I also love early bed times and early mornings. I always find I’m at my most productive in the mornings so I like to make the most of that time. (I’m totally THAT annoying cheery morning person) However when you add babies and children into the mix (or your snoring partner for that matter) Then broken sleep is pretty much a given.

Now whatever your choice of sleeping arrangements are all we really want is to get a nice restful sleep and wake up feeling refreshed. If I’m honest I can’t remember the last time I woke up ‘refreshed’. I only ever feel awake and ready for the day once I have had 2 cups of coffee now. (Please say that’s not just me?) We spend 1 third of our life sleeping. New parents lose between 450-700 hours of sleep in the first year of their child’s life – all parents understand the frustration and loss of sleep that bed wetting can cause for both themselves and their child.

So when I was recently invited to a Protect-a-bed Slumber session in Sydney. I was SO excited to be able to attend and I wanted to share all the tips, great products and also a few gross facts with you all.

Firstly did you know humans sweat up to 1L of body fluid per night and lose millions of skin flakes each night. After 5 years, half the weight of a mattress can be made up of our own body fluids, skin cells, mould and bacteria that seep into our bedding. This is seriously gross right? I just thought I dribbled a lot on my pillow! Eww!

And let’s talk about Dust mites, They lurk in an unprotected mattress and are a major cause of asthma and allergies. As much as 30% of the population are actually allergic to dust mite. (Despite their tiny size, dust mites produce 10-20 waste particles per day!) WAIT – they poop on my mattress. Seriously GRIM.

So let me tell you a little about Protect-A-Bed. They are committed to healthy sleep solutions and believe that ordinary, everyday products can be extraordinary. A quality assured Protect-A-Bed mattress protector is like an insurance policy for your mattress. Number 1 in the world for a reason, Protect-A-Bed® protects your mattress, a long-term investment, from everyday accidents, spills and stains, perspiration and skin flakes that contribute to the growth of dust mite mould and bacteria allergens. Their Products are designed and suited for the whole family.

So I decided to try out their mattress protector and was eager to see how this product shaped up. I used the Traditional cotton quilted mattress protector which states best for everyday comfort, with all the benefits of cotton, plus the added benefit of extra support and padding. What I loved about this was how soft and comfortable it was. A lot better than my previous mattress protector. It’s also machine wash and tumble dry safe. Which makes for a very happy mama! Also – Its waterproof! If you’ve ever suffered from any form of urinary incontinence, you’re not alone. Estimates are that 4.6 million Australians suffer from some form of urinary incontinence, so it is not an uncommon concern. Night time accidents are an unspoken issue and cause of stress – but it doesn’t have to be. Pop a protect-a-bed mattress protector on and you know it’s not going to stain your mattress.

A stand out for me within the protect-a-bed range was that they are approved by the National Asthma Council Australia Sensitive Choice Program and Red Nose (Sids and Kids). After trialling this product I would certainly recommend this to friends, family and all parents out there.

We could all improve the quality of our sleep. Sometimes all it takes is a few small changes.

Changes that have seriously helped me and my family are:

  • Reducing screen time – It is so easy to reach for your phone or put the TV on before bed. But swap the ipad for a book and see what it does for your sleeping habits.

  • Ensure a clean and clutter free bedroom space – Perfect time for spring cleaning. A tidy room is a tidy mind. The more peaceful your room. The calmer and more restful nights sleep you could have.
