I’ve always been a huge advocate for trying new things. As a family we all love to try new sports, visit places we’ve never been to before, taste new flavours and challenge ourselves. So when I was asked to help Pomegreat to spread the word about their latest promotion, I jumped at the chance.

Like all young children, my two adore Thomas the tank engine. For Lia in particular, it’s her default position when she’s watching television.

The great Easter chocolate hunt with Prezzybox

This year, my girls are getting really excited about Easter. They seem to think the Easter bunny brought their Easter eggs last year, although I don’t remember telling them that. Nonetheless, it’s quite a magical time with the visit of the mythical bunny impending. So I decided that for the first time ever, we’d have an Easter egg hunt. But when Prezzybox got in touch and told me about their alternative Easter gifts, I decided it would be even more fun to hide some of those. I put some thought into where to hide the chocolate and decided that our…

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…

Telford Steam Railway Polar Express

Over the past few years, we’ve been lucky enough to go to various Christmas experiences all over the West Midlands. I’ve reviewed most of those on the blog. But when I was writing my Christmas days out West Midlands post last year, there was one event we just couldn’t bear to miss out on. Tickets were about to sell out, so I booked ours straight away. And it was one of the best decisions I’ve made. And why am I telling you about this in March? Because the tickets for the Telford Steam Railway Polar Express 2017 have gone on sale, and…
