Who loves a bit of Hanky Panky?

October 31, 2015 admin 0

During half term I had to take my car for the dreaded MOT whilst I had my two boys, 5 and 3. The mechanic said it would take about an hour so we took a walk into Chester in hunt for a pancake house that had been recommended by friends. It took us a while to find it as it’s off the main road hidden away down a quiet little street behind the hustle and bustle […]

Secret Sausages – The verdict is in!

October 10, 2015 admin 0

I have two boys aged 5 and 3, both gorgeous, both monkeys. My youngest has a brilliant appetite and will eat almost everything, my eldest is fussy and reluctant to try new foods making meal times a challenge on occasion. Despite his fussy tendencies I still ensure that he eats plenty of fruit and vegetables, even if it is always the same ones, they still count. On more than one occasion I have slipped some […]

Family Trip to the Pencil Museum

September 8, 2015 admin 0

Last month my family and I had the pleasure of staying in the Lake District for the weekend, one of our all-time favourite places in the UK. Whilst we were there we visited a few different attractions as well as soaking up the outstanding scenery that the Lakes has to offer. Our first stop was to the Pencil Museum in Keswick. Now I know what you’re thinking, a pencil museum – wow how dull! And […]

Day out at Conkers – Family Fun

August 17, 2015 admin 2

A couple of weeks ago I bought a voucher from groupon for a family ticket to Conkers for £16, a half price saving. As a family we love to be out doors, running, climbing and enjoying the fresh air, so this attraction really appealed to us. We drove an hour and 45 minutes to get there as we hadn’t checked the distance before buying tickets – family fail number 1, but a few games of […]

Bella and Bow Mens personalised bracelet

May 25, 2015 admin 0

This is the second time I have worked with Bella and Bow and I simply can’t fault them at all. Their customer service is brilliant, they are friendly and helpful and discuss your ideas and orders with you like a normal person not like a snotty shop assistant. They make you feel like your order is as important to them as it is to you and when you are ordering something this personal that really […]

Bella and Bow – beautiful gift ideas.

I think I have found the perfect gift, bespoke print jewellery from Bella and Bow. I was sent a gorgeous key ring with the handprints of my two boys on, however they offer a full range of handmade, personalised print jewellery using foot prints, fingerprints and even paw prints! You can also choose from a selection of pieces including necklaces, charms and cufflinks all made from sterling silver. Bella and Bow was set up by […]

Lost my name – A book Review

April 27, 2015 admin 2

Back in February I received a copy of the lost my name book and it is one of the most beautiful children’s book I have ever read. What makes it even more special is that it is personalised to the name of your child, any name, any spelling, so even the more uniquely named children can enjoy this beautiful book. The book is written by David Cadji-Newby and illustrated by Pedro Serapicos through the company lostmy.name. […]

Slumber sac – A product review

April 25, 2015 admin 0

Slumber sac a product review. I was sent three items from slumbersac to review; the baby sleeping bag with feet, a kid’s sleeping bag and a bath poncho. I have used sleeping bags with both my babies but never did I realise you could get them with legs or in child sizes I wish I had discovered this site earlier. The first item is the baby sleeping with feet. This in itself is a fantastic […]

Toucan box – children’s craft review

April 24, 2015 admin 0

Toucan are craft boxes delivered to your door full of craft activities for you and your children/grandchildren. They are three sizes, petite, grande and super and are priced accordingly. Our box arrived today and it definitely has the wow factor. I was expecting something a lot smaller, in fact I was expecting something through the letter box, which makes me want to point out that you would need to order this for a day you […]
