Minions toys for Christmas

Since watching Despicable Me a couple of years ago, Libby has been a huge Minions fan. She has watched the films so many times that Lia has started to love them too. This morning, Lia had to miss her playgroup Christmas party because we’re having a new kitchen fitted and I had to be here to sort some things out. So I decided it was a great time to get out the new Minions toys we’ve been sent. Minion Bob Soft Toy Minion Bob is a cuddly little plush Minion complete with goggles. The souls of his feet are hard, allowing him…

Beer 52 Craft Beer Club Review and Discount Code

My husband is a nightmare to buy for at Christmas. I mentioned recently that he had his own unique ‘style’ when it comes to clothes. Not a style I’d care to emulate when I’m buying gifts. So I buy him books that he doesn’t read, experiences that he never uses or general stuff that he doesn’t need. So when I discovered Beer 52 craft beer club I realised this was the perfect gift. To hear more about Beer 52, read on! If you’re just here for the discount code (you can’t beat cheap beer after all) use the code PLUTONIUM10 for £10 off.…

Yellodoor Child’s First Aid Kit Review and Giveaway

Last week when I was running with Bubbles, she got spooked by a car and bolted in front of me. We were running on tarmac that was old and bumpy and I ended up ripping quite a significant amount of skin off my hands and knees. The only first aid items I had available were the ones I’d used for my ultramarathon, which made me realise that I really needed to get a child’s first aid kit. The Yellodoor Child’s First Aid Kit Had it been one of the girls that had got hurt, I would have felt terrible about being…

This is a collaborative post. If you would like to learn magic with Abracademy, use the code TOPHAT to get a 10% discount on any one of their courses. When I was a child, I always wanted to learn magic. But didn’t everyone? As you become old enough to stop believing in the tooth fairy and Harry Potter, the desire to replace those things with real magic is overwhelming. I had a couple of little magic sets over the years but never really got to grips with it. The instructions were a bit complicated or the tricks weren’t up to…

Boohoo Kids Review

I don’t often buy clothes for the children because they frequently receive beautiful clothes from family for Christmas and birthdays. Sometimes though, I do need to pick up something that they need in a hurry. The Boohoo Kids website is perfect for this sort of shopping. Clothes are reasonably priced, delivery is quick and returns are free. Boohoo Kids Floral Print Long Sleeve Swing Dress I love the pattern on this Boohoo Kids floral dress. It’s quite unusual to have a black floral design for young children but I think it looks really good. The dress is made from polyester which is rather…

Vileda Windomatic Window Vacuum Cleaner Review

When I was asked to review the Vileda Windomatic Window Vacuum Cleaner, my first thought was that it wouldn’t really get used much in our house. You see the thing is, cleaning the windows just takes such a long time. Glass cleaner, cloths, water, more cloths, streaky windows not much better than when you started. And repeat ad infinitum. Window cleaning made easy Nonetheless, I was persuaded that the Vileda Windomatic Window Vacuum Cleaner was worth having. That it would transform the way I washed my windows. For me the transformation would be from never washing the windows to washing them at…
