I love a good subscription box, they are one of may favourite things. A box full of surprises through your door, what’s not to love? I also love crafting, I enjoy little projects that I can make quickly as I don’t have much time for my own crafting nowadays. Surprise Box Club has combined these two things so I was very excited to get to review a box.
When I was a child I loved my LEGO. It was the prized toy. With so many possibilities and it has certainly notched up a gear since I last played with it. When LEGO asked if we wanted to review some of their newest kits I of course leapt at the chance.
First I shall share with you one of the most tragic moments of my young life.
I was given the LEGO Pirate Ship for Christmas one year. It was amazing, huge, with rigging delicate rigging, cannons that fired little LEGO cannonballs, it even had a parrot. It was the best.
I often chat about my lovely cat James, he has been my baby for longer than my actual baby, my centre of fluffy calm when I was in a bad place and my comfort whenever I have been sick.
So why oh why have I not featured him on the blog? He wanted to get the chance to review something, to be the star of the show, to get all the pictures.
So when PetShop.co.uk said they were in need of some feline taste testers it seemed only fair to let Mr James in on the action and he was only too willing to participate.
It doesn’t matter how hard I try, sometimes I have to work whilst the little one occupies himself.
The main problem with this is that as soon as I am doing something, he decides that is way more exciting than whatever was holding his attention up until that point, so I have had had to become the master of quick and easy activities that he actually loves.
These happen to be few and far between though. In fact there is only one that is guaranteed to work. Continue reading Colouring to Keep my Toddler Happy
We have been lucky enough to work with Wolfie +Willow, reviewing a pair of their super stylish leather moccasins.
Wolfie + Willow are a fabulous brand from the people behind Inch Blue makers of soft leather shoes, beautiful gifts sets and amazing sheepskin booties for babies.
Do you know what the best things about winter are? It’s easy. Christmas, snow, the beach, hot chocolate and soup. Done, that’s it, a perfect winter for me. Continue reading Soup Glorious Soup
This weekend I was lucky enough to not only have a child free weekend away with the other half but to have also been invited to e-Luminate Cambridge Festival of Light as a blog ambassador.
The festival started on Friday but we sadly couldn’t make the opening ceremony and it runs until the 17th, so there’s still plenty of time to visit and enjoy the amazing light installations and if you’re lucky book onto one of the fab events. As it’s half term week it would be a fab thing to do with the kids. Continue reading Our Valentine’s Weekend at e-Luminate Cambridge 2016
A few weekends ago my sister and I went to Clarice House in Bury St Edmunds for a day of relaxation and pampering to celebrate her 30th birthday.
I booked our package through Spa Seekers, which was fine and I got an awesome deal, but what wasn’t mentioned, at any point, was that our package didn’t include robe and towel hire, so whilst I would recommend both Spa Seekers for the deals and Clarice House for the loveliness I will say now you need to make sure that your package includes everything you assume it would.
Our package included an hour long massage, 30 minute facial, 30 minute manicure and 30 minute pedicure, as well as lunch and use fo the facilities. Pure bliss.
I love my little workspace at home. It is so important to me getting quiet time to work, being productive and being happy. It’s a work in progress still but I love it. My recent improvement has been with the Lumie Desklamp.
My little workspace is set up in our conservatory, a world of natural light you would have thought, apart from the fact we live in England and it is normally miserable, I do most of my work in the evenings and the lights we have in the conservatory are a bit pants.
So I needed a new desk lamp and having worked with Lumie before, reviewing the wonderful bodyclocks, they seemed like the perfect partner for me. Continue reading Improving My Workspace with Lumie
I think I may have found the perfect Valentine’s Day gift, or Mother’s Day, or Father’s Day actually.
The We Are Family Journal from Illustries.
It’s a beautiful hardback A4 book, printed in navy and classic brown and filled with page upon page of wonderfully printed ideas and themes to fill out for your family.
I love it for it’s simple and elegant look, it is a perfect ‘coffee table’ book. It is stylish and unlike other memory books I have seen it isn’t overly girly, it is a much for my husband as it is for me, which I really like.
