Just in case it has escaped your notice two weeks today it will be Mother’s Day. Just in case you are looking for gift inspiration I’ve pulled together a list of gorgeous gifts suitable for any mum, even the ones like me that say they don’t want anything. Continue reading Mother’s Day Gift Guide
For Mother’s Day this year Wentworth wooden puzzles have created a beautiful Mother’s Day Jigsaw puzzle and they kindly sent me my very own to have a look at.
The With Love Jigsaw is £29 for a 250 piece puzzle. Now 250 pieces may not sound like many but boy is this thing tough. I’ve been working on it for days now, grabbing moments as and when I can and I have only just completed the edges!
Organising a hen party is hard work, especially when there are 19 guests, the bride is your sister and your mum will be there. So many standard hen party gifts and tokens are just ridiculously tacky and flashy or adorned with willy’s.
We have been playing with Crazy Claw from Drumond Park recently, so I thought I would give you our verdict. Mine and L’s differ slightly on this one.
I’m going to start by pointing out this game is aimed at ages 5 and up. L is only 3. So I was always completely aware there may be parts of the gameplay he didn’t quite get and that maybe he wouldn’t be able to do it all.
How time flies. This time two weeks ago I was getting ready for my sisters hen party and in another two weeks she will be getting married. It has come round in the blink of an eye.
Thanks to the hard work of a lot of people the hen party was brilliant and as I never do this kind of thing I thought I would tell you all about it.
L and I love the Whimsy Wood books by Sarah Hill. Simple stories about Pixies and Fairies and most of all nature.
Fearne Fairy and the Chocolate Caterpillar is no exception. It is brilliant. The perfect length bedtime book. Lots of amazing illustrations.
Thinking about something to buy for your loved one this Valentine’s Day. I’ve got some ideas for you that might help inspire you.
How about a personalised print from Hello Moon? They have a number of beautiful options for couples or if you want to include the whole family, because Valentine’s Day is about all kinds of love in my books, you could get an amazing Wellington Boot Poster for families of three or four. I fell in love with this option so much I got one for myself!!
Just before Christmas I was contacted by the wonderful people at Crafter’s Companion, a leading papercraft company who create and sell some amazing products that get us crafty types all excited. They wanted to know if I would like to review the recently launched Colorista Range from Spectrum Noir.
I love colouring in, it’s something that is quite easy to fit in around everything else and something I can even do with L. I can set him up with his own colouring book and crayons whilst I enjoy my own. So of course I said yes. Continue reading The Spectrum Noir Colorista Range
Don’t be put off the small size of The Adventure Suit. It is the biggest amount of fun you can find it such a small space.
The Adventure Suit is the first mini interactive book from augmented reality company Zappar. It’s a great way to combine reading with technology and game play. It could help get kids more excited about reading or just provide a new way to play.
However, you choose to use it you won’t be disappointed. You really, really won’t. Continue reading Win a Mini Interactive Book from Zappar
