Mummy Mondays – Superhero Snap to the Rescue

Ok, for some reason I though that when January finally ended (how come that month always seems ten times longer than all the others?), that this horrible cold and wet weather we have been having here in the UK would somehow go away. Unfortunately it didn’t and I am finding myself running out of activities to entertain the kids. Fortunately I was recently sent over the Superhero Snap game by...

Mummy Mondays – Love-Sticker Wall Decal Review 

Cameron’s been through quite a lot over the past few months. He’s welcomed a baby brother, moved house and school, and had to get used to yet another shift in our family dynamic as Benjamin takes most of my attention.  When we moved house, Cameron was really excited to have his own bedroom as he had been sharing with his sister. He loves having so much space all to himself...

Beauty – Revlon Colorstay Foundation Review 

Like many other women, I’m on the hunt for the holy grail of foundations. I’ve not got a huge budget when it comes to makeup, so as much as I’d love the high end brands I can’t justify the cost.  When I saw that Revlon’s Colorstay was apparently a dupe for the Ester Lauder Doublewear foundation I figured I had nothing to lose. I had picked up a sample of...

Making Memories with MyBabyLog – Review & Giveaway

I’ve never been the kind of person to find it easy to throw sentimental things away. When it comes to the children, especially when they’re babies, I find it even harder to part with the bits and pieces which you tend to accumulate from birth.  I’ve been fortunate enough to have received Mybabylog memory chests when I was pregnant with both Carly and Benjamin, and they are brilliant for storing...

Mummy Mondays – Tipitoe Handprint Kit Review

When we moved house, the majority of boxes were filled with drawings done by the children, old letters, photos albums, scrapbooks and memory boxes. Ed calls it hoarding, I call it keeping memories.  In the spirit of making and keeping memories, I jumped at the chance to review a new product from Tipitoes soon to be available.  I received the keepsake handprint kit (suitable for ages 0-6 months) in blue...

Beauty – My Black Friday Bargain – Soap & Glory Extrava-Glam-Za 

I’ve never really been one to make a big deal about Black Friday, and I’ll be honest, this year I was getting a little fed up with how long and drawn out it became, especially as it is an American thing.  However, I’m not one to turn down a bargain when I see one. As I had a fair amount of Boots Advantage card points to spend, when I saw...

Super Mario Aqua Beads Review 

Aqua Beads are fast becoming a popular activity amongst children of all ages. The kits allow kids to create pictures using the included multicoloured beads and magically preserve them using just water.  My children love crafts at the moment so when the lovely people at Aqua Beads offered to send over a Super Mario kit for my little minions to review we jumped at the chance.  The kit arrived quickly...

Mummy Mondays – Family Time at Oasis Fun Bournemouth 

Yesterday, on a cold Sunday afternoon, Ed and I decided to take the children to Oasis Fun, the new leisure complex in Bournemouth. The children were excited, and I was looking forward to being able to sit down, after one too many Proseccos at a Christmas party the night before.  Oasis Fun is situated in the centre of town, just up from the main shops on Glenfern Road. The complex...

Parenting – Organix Goodies Crispy Bars Review 

When I was told about Organix’s new cereal bars for toddlers, I knew my little minions would love the chance to try them so happily arranged for some to be sent to us for them to review.  The company says the following about the new bars:   “For little explorers who like to try something new, Organix Goodies launches their new crispy bars. Packed full of juicy raisins and crispy puffs...
