#StarWarsReads review and giveaway

To celebrate Star Wars Day on May the 4th, Egmont have released a selection of Star Wars branded books for children. They have kindly sent us a selection of the books to review and as you will see, Libby has got into the spirit of it! Star Wars The Force Awakens illustrated story book The illustrated story book of The Force Awakens is a brilliant introduction to Star Wars for younger children. The words are simple and there are fantastic pictures. It gives a little briefing about each of the characters as they are introduced. This is great for people who…

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…

A flavourful evening at Natural Healthy Foods Birmingham

Last night, my sister and I headed into Birmingham for the media launch of a new vegan eatery in Birmingham. Natural healthy foods already had a shop in Digbeth stocking organic, gluten free, refined sugar free, vegan food. Their new flagship store near the mailbox has a small shop. But the main attraction is the incredible eatery. The Natural healthy foods buffet I have to admit, I love a buffet style restaurant. I like the fact you can try as many or as few things as you like and eat as much as you want. The only problem I find as a…

Jack and Jill eco friendly toothcare review

Shopping ethically is really important to me. So much so that I launched a website to help people to choose products that are free from palm oil. I have some amazing products listed on there, including a palm oil free toothpaste for children made by Jack and Jill. I was honoured to be asked to review their range of eco friendly toothcare. In fact, I had no idea how big a range they had and I’m seriously impressed. Jack and Jill toothpaste The organic toothpastes are the products I was already aware of because they are free from palm oil. They…
