National Sea Life Centre Birmingham: Review

Today, we were lucky enough to be invited to the National Sea Life Centre to check out their Ancient Oceans event. We are all huge fans of the National Sea Life Centre and visit regularly. However, the Ancient Oceans event was particularly exciting for my dinosaur loving girls.

Our Thursday photo #92

This week instead of a weekly update, I’ve got a story to tell. As usual, my dangerous dog plays a starring role. It all started as soon as I stepped out of the door to take the dogs for a walk.

Trespass Kitsy Softshell Jacket: Review

When Trespass asked me to review their Women’s Kitsy Softshell Jacket, I knew the perfect place to put it through it’s paces. During the winter, the British coast is one of my favourite places to be. But living in the Midlands, we don’t get there anywhere near enough. So you can perhaps forgive me for admitting that before my Kitsy arrived, I didn’t really having the right coat for a chilly walk on the beach. Trespass Kitsy Softshell Jacket: Review The Trespass Kitsy Softshell Jacket is made of light, flexible fabric with a light fleece lining. The exterior is windproof, waterproof…
