What do kids need for school?

August 23, 2018 admin 0

The boys, like most other children in the country, go back to school in a couple of weeks, which means right now I am doing the ever crazy back to school shop. Not my favourite past time I can assure you. I have been asked by a few fellow mums whose children start school this September “What do kids need for school?” and so I thought I would write a post outlining everything that I […]

We have had such a fun filled summer so far with days spent out and about exploring new places, movie nights at home and Pajama days slobbed on the sofa playing computer games and I’m actually starting to look forward to the boys going back to school just for a rest. This week we had out first family visit to the Crocky Trail near Chester with the boys. My husband and I went 10 years […]

Marili skincare range – inspired by Africa, made in England

August 11, 2018 admin 0

One of the biggest perks of being a blogger is the opportunity to try new products and visit new places that we might not otherwise experience. These opportunities have opened my eyes to so many new companies and more importantly they have educated me on the way products are made and the ingredients that are used and it has definitely made me think about the products we then go on to buy as a family. […]

There are subscription boxes full of makeup, boxes that focus on your tipple of choice and even boxes for the dog.

flavoured gins by aldi

Have you tried the new flavoured gins at Aldi?

August 8, 2018 admin 0

It seems to me that alcoholic drinks have seasons a bit like fashions, with trends that people follow and then unfollow in quick succession. Looking back the first trend I can remember was the flavoured vodkas when I was in my late teens early twenties, although there wasn’t that much choice back then so we would often make our own using skittles if we couldn’t find a flavour we liked. Then in my late twenties […]

August 8, 2018 admin 4

Earlier this week were invited to go and try out the new VR experience at Legoland Manchester and boy were the kids excited. The tiddler was excited for the general day out as he hasn’t been to the Manchester Legoland discovery center since his 4th birthday when he was told he was too young for one of the rides, so he really wanted to go back so he could ‘finally’ go on it and the […]

Marriage is a huge adventure, but the wedding is only just the start. Couples who have spent some time buying a home and building a life together know that the next step is usually the beginning of a family. Having a baby isn’t a decision that should be taken lightly. A baby is a joyous, overwhelming, beautifully stressful and life-changing event in life. Most married couples articulate their dreams for their future children and build […]

Family Touch baby art, not just for babies

August 3, 2018 admin 0

We were sent the Family touch baby art kit to review a few weeks back and it has sat in my office ever since because I kept putting it off wondering how I would manage to review a baby item when I no longer have babies. But last week I got it out for a closer look and figured we would just try it anyway. I used to love making these types of things when […]

Our first visit to Tree Top Trek Manchester

August 2, 2018 admin 0

Tree Top Trek Manchester is a high rope course based in Heaton Park, Manchester. It is similar to Go Ape but does have some differences, the main one being that as well as the tree top trek they also have tree top nets that look amazing, think trampolines in the trees and you will have a better idea what I mean. We booked on the Tree Top Trek junior which is available for children from […]
