Doddle Bags from Lakeland – Review

It is safe to say Lakeland is up there as one of my favourite stores, there’s always a new gadget, gift or kitchen accessory I want so I was really excited to get to review Doddle Bags for them.

Doddle Bags are reusable food and drink pouches, but more than that they can be used for toiletries when you are travelling, using with paints, any liquid basically.

They are perfect for on the go, they are leak proof, have anti-choke caps and are dishwasher and freezer safe. They are simply amazing and I have been a bit blown away by them. Continue reading Doddle Bags from Lakeland – Review

Father’s Day Fun from Hobbycraft

I recently took a trip to my local Hobbycraft in Norwich to grab a few bits so that L and I could make some fun Father’s Day gifts. Now L is only two and half years old, there is a limit to what he can craft but no limit to the mess he can make, or the fun he will have making it!

So we pushed back the rug, got him into his little craft apron, these are brilliant and only cost £1, well worth purchasing one, and then we set about immortalising Daddy by creating a portrait of him.

We love these play aprons

April Crafts

I love to craft, really love it, but like many of my hobbies it has been put on the back burner since becoming a mum. Just like reading, looking presentable and using the bathroom by myself.

I’m lucky enough that I get to work with Baker Ross regularly so I’m never out of fun crafts to do with the boy and I also make things for the Hobbycraft blog quite often, every now and then I get asked to things for other companies as well. I relish these opportunities as it means I get to do something I love, but it’s never just for me, which I miss.  Continue reading April Crafts

When the guys at Rust-Oleum got in touch a couple of weeks back to see if I fancied taking part in a bit of a blogger challenge they were running to create a wedding craft the timing couldn’t have been better.

As you all know my sister is getting married next year and I am one of her bridesmaids, so far, as part of my Project Bridesmaid series, I have been focusing on myself and losing some weight so I’ll look good on the day. The time has come, however, to start actually taking care of my real duties.  Continue reading How to Make A Wedding Tree – Project Bridesmaid
