Cheerz memory box review and giveaway

I take photos every single day. I post twice a day to Instagram and almost every photo is taken on the day I post it. I share my Thursday photo of the girls every week without fail, and yet I’m awful at remembering to get photos printed. And really, printing them is what photography is all about. Keeping the memories and looking through them in years to come. So when Cheerz got in touch and asked me to review one of their memory boxes, I knew it was going to be life-changing. About Cheerz Cheerz make it easy to print your photos. And…

What2buy4kids classic games collection 5 in 1

For homework this week, Libby could choose between a number of activities. One of them was to play a board game with the family. This got me thinking about the fact that we don’t play board games enough. We have snakes and ladders but Libby is ready for something a bit more advanced. So when What2buy4kids got in touch and asked me to review something from their website, I decided it was time to teach the girls to play drafts. About What2Buy4Kids I love the ethos behind What2Buy4Kids. It is a children’s gifts website that mum Lisa started because she wasn’t happy with…

Ben and Holly Live at Malvern Theatre

Since Libby started school, I’ve felt like I’ve had very little quality time with her during the week. When I pick her up we’re always heading to a dance or drama class. Even on days when we come straight home, I’m rushing to get dinner ready or trying to get some work done while the girls play. So when we were asked if we wanted to go and see Ben and Holly’s Little Kingdom live on stage, I jumped at the chance. Ben and Holly’s Little Kingdom Live on Stage Ben and Holly’s Little Kingdom is a childhood television staple. There…

ChewyMoon healthy snacks for children – review and giveaway

My children have always been quite good eaters. With a few exceptions, they tend to eat whatever I put in front of them at dinner time. In fact the only time they really struggle is when they’ve been eating sweets and junk food between meals. So there’s no problem then. Don’t feed them between meals and everything will be fine. Wrong! The snack dilemma The issue I have is that by mid afternoon when Lia gets up from a nap and Libby finishes school, they’re hungry. They’re also tired, we usually have somewhere else to go before home and it’s a…

Art supplies for children from Colour&Fun – review & giveaway

Children’s art supplies are a delicate subject when you have two children with a slight age gap. Felt tip pens have always caused arguments in our house. Libby is old enough to use them and loves to draw and colour in. Lia on the other hand, just can’t quite master them. We had an incident a few months back where the end of the pen ended up in her mouth, which made her sick. And even on a good day, more pen ends up on her than on the paper. And don’t get me started on the mess she makes…
