Hotter shoe review

February 25, 2018 admin 0

Earlier in the year I was lucky enough to win a pair of shoes from Hotter, a Great British shoe designing company with an online service as well as stores across the country. The best thing about Hotter shoes is that they are designed with both comfort and style in mind, which is so important for foot health and fashion. They also cater for both wide and narrow feet making it easier than ever to […]

Mothers day gift guide

February 17, 2018 admin 0

Mothers day is less than a month away and as the date seems to change from one year to the next I thought a little gift guide might be the gentle reminder that some people men may need. As well as a reminder that Mothers Day is on 11th March this year I thought I would also give you some awesome inspiration for treating your mum or helping your children treat theirs.   Perfume Most […]

The Wizard of OZ at St. Helens Theatre Royal

February 16, 2018 admin 0

On Wednesday we payed our second visit to the Theatre Royal , this time to see The Wizard of OZ. Last time we sat high up and had a wonderful view of the stage, whereas this time we were seated on the lower floor and it made me realise what a nice little theatre St. Helens is,  it had a lovely personal and intimate feel to it and I think I would probably choose these […]

Introducing Calla-Coll the collagen supplement drink

February 2, 2018 admin 2

Since I reached my thirties I have started to notice lines are appearing on my face more frequently and are getting deeper, the fat around my middle is harder to shift and I generally just look and feel older. I have always taken my body and my skin for granted and although I have always used various lotions and potions I have never really read the contents too much or focused on changing certain areas, […]

Behind every entrapruener is an annoying little sister

January 16, 2018 admin 0

The other day I read a press release about sweets that were good for your teeth and all I could think was “what a load of rubbish”. Of course you can get sugar free sweets that aren’t necessarily bad for your teeth but that is not the same as declaring them good for your teeth. So, true to character, I obviously had to investigate this further before I outed them for making a ridiculous claim […]

Personalised gift ideas for Christmas

October 19, 2017 admin 1

When I am buying gifts for people I like to buy them something a little bit different, something that they will remember and something that hopefully wont be duplicated and shoved in a draw for all eternity. So when possible I like to choose personalised gifts, items that can be engraved or adapted in someway to incorporate the receivers personality or an aspect of who they are and what they like. When I think about […]

An anniversary afternoon tea at Patisserie Valerie

April 19, 2017 admin 0

This weekend my husband and I celebrated 6 years of marriage and as part of my gift to him we went for afternoon tea at Patisserie Valerie at Cheshire Oaks. Now had you asked me a few years ago how I would celebrate anniversaries, or in fact how I would spend any child free time we managed to get, I can assure you an afternoon tea would not have been my answer. It would have […]


Review Goahead snacks

October 30, 2016 admin 0

As a busy mum, teacher, blogger and student I often find myself eating on the go and when I am out with the boys a bag full of snacks is a must as they never seem to be full. So when Go Ahead asked us to review their #snacksmart range I couldn’t possibly turn them down. Go Ahead is not a new brand to us, we have been buying their crispy slices for as long […]

My syn free love affair with little’s

August 26, 2016 admin 3

I never used to drink coffee and then I had kids, one of which NEVER seemed to sleep and so my relationship with coffee started to develop. A few years later I became a teacher and then my relationship with coffee grew into a full blown love affair and now coffee is fast becoming my one true love.   It’s always there when I need it, it never judges me, and well, basically helps me […]

July 13, 2016 admin 0

I sometimes find it difficult to get my boys to eat fruit and vegetables, especially the big one, he likes peas and ….erm…yeah peas just about covers the veg selection. So, like a lot of parents I know I have taken to sneaking them into his meal, sometimes successfully sometime not so much and I am always on the look out for new ways to try and entice my children to up their 5 a day […]
