Review: SuperZings Rivals Of Kaboom!

Review: SuperZings Rivals Of Kaboom!

Picture the scene…you’re Mum to two. You’re ill. Feeling more poorly than you’ve felt in a long time. Your older child is at school. The toddler is being entertained by a Disney film, for now. You lay there wondering how you’re going to survive from school run to bedtime. Then there is a knock at the door and a man stands before you with a large box. Inside the parcel are SuperZings Rivals of Kaboom and immediately you know that…

Five Things I Learnt About Party Planning

Five Things I Learnt About Party Planning

Party planning in my home town of Wakefield. It sounds like a fun job doesn’t it? I love organising things. I took great pleasure in planning our wedding and always thought I’d be a good events planner. However, in October I planned a a surprise 30th for my best friend and I’m now questioning my initial thoughts! With this in mind, here are five things I learnt about party planning: 1) Wedding Planning and Party Planning are different. Wedding planning…

Rock Challenge

Rock Challenge

You’ll have to excuse me as this post deviates from the usual “Parenting and Lifestyle” theme and makes a back turn to my teacher days. I feel passionately about ex-curricular activities. There are two specific reasons for me writing this post about Rock Challenge: One – It was World Teacher’s Day on the 5th October Two – I heard some sad news about an event that I used to be involved in when I was a teacher For those that…

Marvel Universe Live! Review

Marvel Universe Live! Review

Major Mummy and Wife Points! When I told my husband I had been gifted tickets for Marvel Universe Live for a review, his words were “Best wife ever!” or something along those lines. We didn’t tell Lucas till nearer the time as I couldn’t deal with the constant asking of how many sleeps. Let’s be honest, it’s only October and he’s asking about Christmas thanks to shops and their decorations. By the time the day came to go to Fly…

My New Addiction – Podcasts!

My New Addiction – Podcasts!

Today is International Podcast Day. They’ve been around for a while but they’ve really took off this year. Celebrities, bloggers, sports people and many others are recording podcasts. Parenting, Birth, Mental Health, Comedy, Fashion…no topics are off limits for Podcasts! If I’m honest, there’re not something I was overly interested in. They didn’t appeal to me. Then I found out that Giovanna Fletcher had one based on her book Happy Baby Happy Mum. I loved the book and thought I’ve…

Hannah Brooke Photography – This is Motherhood

I’m proud to have collaborated with family photographer Hannah Brooke for her series This Is Motherhood… “Becka and I have been connected on Instagram for a while, and this was one of those “Yay, we met IRL” (in real life!) moments! Turns out we had more in common than we realised – similar outlook on life, son’s the same age, both of have strong minded girls as our second child and even friends in common. Such a small world!

I wanted to be a Stay At Home Mum then I hated it

I wanted to be a Stay At Home Mum then I hated it

So, according to my calendar in my awesome Blogger’s Bible, it’s Working Parents Day today. A bit of a weird one right? I’m not going to get into why there isn’t a non-working parents day or whatever. However I did think the day was a good chance to discuss why I hated being a Stay At Home Mum (SAHM) and chose to be a Working Parent.

Sewing Month Featuring Sew Sian

Sewing Month Featuring Sew Sian

Did you know that September is Sewing Month? No, neither did I until I got my Blogger’s Bible from Stationery Geek and it was in the calendar! I thought it was a perfect opportunity to write a post about one of my favourite small businesses, Sew Sian. They create stunning personalised clothing for all ages and occasions. Brand Rep Becka’s Bubble was accepted as a brand rep for Sew Sian in October 2018. I was over the moon when Sian…

Reel Cinema Wakefield is REEL good!

Reel Cinema Wakefield is REEL good!

Ric and I are polar opposites in so many ways. However one thing we have in common is we love a trip to the cinema! Watching films together has always been our way to spend some time together. Some day it’s anti-social but we love it. Now Lucas is getting older he is taking after us which is great! Unfortunately the cinema prices have gone up A LOT since Ric and I first began dating. This fact alone is making…

One Year Of Becka’s Bubble

One Year Of Becka’s Bubble

On the 1st of September 2018, Becka’s Bubble – parenting and lifestyle blog- hit the World Wide Web. Ex teacher, mummy blogger and, at the time, Stay At Home Mum. It was the next chapter of my blogging adventure. I began with this post which explains why I decided to start again. It was definitely a nerve wrecking time. I wasn’t sure if I should have just revamped by old blog rather than starting again.
