Welcome to The Stevenson Life

We are a young(ish) family, currently living in sunny(!) Suffolk.

A Rosetta Stone Review

Rosetta Stone Review

The last year has definitely had its challenges, but one thing we’ve been thankful for is spending more time together as a family trying new hobbies. While our focus has been on keeping the Grayson, lately Ashleigh and I have been trying to figure out new ways to keep ourselves entertained and making the best of the circumstances wherever we can. One thing we love to do more than anything is travel. But now that that’s out the window (for now anyway!) We’ve turned our attention to finding other ways to bring the travel experience to us.  I’ve always said…

Love Your Cycles – Period pamper box review

*Disclaimer* I was very kindly gifted this period pamper box, but all opinions included are my own. You can read more reviews and opinions here. As some of you may or may not be aware, since coming off the pill and using the fertility awareness method – I’ve become more in tune with my body and more passionate that people with periods should not feel embarrassed or shy away.

Talking to children about death.

WUKA period pants – a review

Since I started my periods over 10 years ago, I’ve always sat firmly on the side of sanitary towels or ‘pads’. I never got on with tampons and just found them extremely uncomfortable, and so I’ve spent the whole of my adult life in pads when on my period. I’ve…

The First Break – Grayson and his Broken Wrist

Nothing says “Welcome to 2021” like a broken wrist, right?! What started as a fairly normal Saturday, the first weekend of January, soon turned in to one we won’t forget any time soon! As a parent, it’s one of those things that you hope your child never has to go…

Parenting during a pandemic.

I’ve found that during the whole Coronavirus pandemic and the multiple lockdowns, I’ve felt sadness for pretty much everyone. The elderly stuck in care homes, people that are pregnant or have just given birth and in desperate need of support, school children trying to learn from home, people with mental…

How to talk to children about mental health.

Mental health is definitely becoming a subject that is talked about more openly than it has been in the past, which I am totally here for. I think mental health is something we should all look after, just as much as our physical health. We should also encourage our children…
