The perfect maternity leggings by Love Leggings

July 15, 2019 admin 0

I am currently 5 and a half months pregnant with my third baby and from about 3 months pregnant my clothes have felt uncomfortable and tight, especially my jeans and trousers. This wasn’t the case with the first two and it took me by surprise as I hadn’t considered moving into maternity clothing so early but I guess every pregnancy is different.   The very first piece of maternity clothing I wore this time round […]

Why Coral Island Blackpool is more than just an arcade

June 25, 2019 admin 0

Last week my family and I were invited to Coral Island Blackpool for the day. Having grown up in Blackpool before leaving at the age of 18 my husband and I are always keen to share our memories of our childhood and home town with the boys and so we relished the idea of a day playing in the arcades on the sea front with them. In my minds eye Coral Island was the biggest […]

Micro Motorz surprises

June 7, 2019 admin 0

The boys were very kindly sent some Micro Motorz surprises to review and were excited to see what they were all about. The first thing to point out is that, as the name suggests, they are blind packaged toys meaning the contents is always a surprise. Now to me this sounds like a frustration as I would always rather buy what I want but when it comes to the children they love anything that is […]

The Niva wireless earphones from Sudio

June 6, 2019 admin 0

This month I have been trying out a pair of the Niva wireless earphones from Sudio which is probably one of the best product reviews I have been asked to do for a while as I have wanted a pair of wireless earphones for ages but haven’t been able to justify such a self indulgent treat since going freelance.   The Niva wireless earphones are priced at £89 with free shipping and are available in three […]

The Fab Lab Tie Dye Luxury Kit

June 4, 2019 admin 0

Over the half term holidays we spent a lot of time at home which is unusual for us as we normally have lots of days out planned but this time I decided it would be a good time to unwind, relax, and play with toys and activity sets that we hadn’t had chance to yet. One such activity kit was the fab lab tie dye luxury kit.   This set, as you can imagine, comes […]

Yesterday we went over to Manchester for the day to watch The 30 year celebration tour ‘Wallace and Gromit’s Musical Marvels’ at The Lowry in Salford, where we were gifted tickets in exchange for a review.   Wallace and Gromit’s Musical Marvels is a different type of show than what is usually available at The Lowry as it is a combination of animated films and a live orchestra. If you have had the pleasure of […]

Do your children like the Fingerlings toys?

April 30, 2019 admin 0

My youngest is animal mad. It doesn’t matter whether they are real animals, stuffed teddies or animal like toys, if he can cuddle it, stroke, pet it and generally look after it then he is in his element. So much so it is probably safe to say at this stage he is either going to grow up to be a vet or the equivalent of a crazy cat lady with a house full of pets. […]

The Storyhouse in Chester have done it again.
