Life Update - November 2018

I can not believe that it has been 6 months since I have published a blog post here on Ladybug Home.  I have written a few draft posts the last couple months but mostly have been away focusing on life and business project.
I have truly enjoyed meeting people the UK blogging community the last 3 1/2 years but never felt that completely very successful as blogger. I will be always grateful for opportunities to give my children new experiences by attending press events and working with some toy and book companies. The financial side was never there because I did not work blogging as a business. My original vision of this blog was to focus on my love of crafting and interior design but in 2015 it evolved into more a parenting and review blog. There are thousands of UK parent bloggers that create amazing content everyday and love focusing on the topic of parenting but more heart was not completely in it. I lacked to the passion for parenting topics.

The beginning of 2018, I was focused on finding new ways of making income for my family but mostly to find ways to surround myself with motivated business woman. I believed that the right business opportunity was coming my way.
In March 2018, I was looking through Facebook when I came across a couple posts about a new social marketing company that was launching in the UK on May 1st, 2018. The company was Modern Nature (Monat) and direct selling of vegan, all-natural haircare products. I very quickly saw the value in the products but also saw that the Monat community was filled with women and men that would help me with my business journey growth. I will provide more details about Monat in the future but it is company that has been unbelievable successful in USA and Canada. The UK is the first step to introducing Monat to the European market and I am very product that I can say that I am UK Founder member.

The last 7 months, I have been growing my professional and personal skills while selling these amazing products. I cried many times at the UK Launch event when I truly felt the power of being part of company that truly believes in helping people dream bigger financially but also showing gratitude but giving back to the community around them.

I will share more about Monat in the future on this blog but also being looking at sharing more home and life posts. I am always grateful to my readers and please feel free to comment below or connect with me on social media or in real life.

Paradise Wildlife Park - World of Dinosaurs

We recently were invited to experience the World of Dinosaurs at the Paradise Wildlife Park in Hertfordshire. My children love dinosaurs and were very excited to see the UK's biggest dinosaur attraction. There is over 30 life-size animatronic dinosaurs that are life-size and roaring or making thrilling sounds.

Before entering the World of Dinosaurs main area, we first jumped aboard the Rex Express train that takes you near the dinosaurs. It was £2 per person and we really enjoyed the experience. It allows you to see some of the dinosaurs up-close and to see how my youngest would respond to seeing the animatronic dinosaurs in action. You don't necessary see any additional dinosaurs than you will see walking through the World of Dinosaurs attraction but my children enjoyed it.

Terrific Timelines Dinosaurs Review

We were very excited to receive the Terrific Timelines: Dinosaurs by Richard Ferguson and Isabel Thomas with illustrations by Aude Van Ryn to review. Both my children love dinosaurs and often are wearing t-shirts with dinosaurs from the Jurassic era. My daughter's favourite dinosaur is the Tyrannosaurus Rex (T-Rex) with its big teeth and little arms.
Even though they love dinosaurs, I must admit that we don't really don't know the facts about dinosaurs and even that there was several eras of dinosaurs. This fascinating book features 20 dinosaurs from the from all three prehistoric eras: Triassic, Jurassic and Cretaceous. Each dinosaur has it own fact file.

I am hoping that the weather improves soon and the Spring flowers start appearing.
