National Sea Life Centre a review & events

Earlier this year, we were lucky enough to be chosen as blogger ambassadors for the National Sea Life Centre in Birmingham. Following that, we were invited to attend on Saturday to experience the Mister Maker event and be among the first people to watch their new film, Octonauts: Amazon Adventure 4D. As always, the girls were so excited to be going to the Sea Life Centre. Libby was particularly excited because Mr Maker and the Octonauts are two of her favourite television programmes. Lia isn’t quite old enough to be as engrossed in television as Libby, but she is always…

Wicked Uncle: Review

I’ve never been very good at remembering birthdays or buying presents. I’d love to be, but I’m just not that sort of person. Of course, when it comes to my own children, there is always a little party and some presents. And now that they are getting a bit older, I need to remember their friends’ birthdays, as well as family members.

They sent us some gorgeous items from their Vintage Rose collection, as well as these cute Little Owl Cake Picks.It was actually…

Izabela Peters Children’s Teepee: Review

Like all children, my girls love anything they can get inside. A Wendy house, a tent, a box, a den, a duvet cover… you get the idea. But one thing they’d never experienced before was a teepee. So when I was given the opportunity to review one of the simply beautiful Children’s Teepees from Izabela Peters, I jumped at the chance because I just knew they’d love it. As Lia’s birthday was coming up, I decided this would be the perfect gift for her. Lia very rarely has anything new and has seldom had anything that was just for her.…
