Oxford Rye Organic Vodka

We have recently had the pleasure of trying Oxford Rye Organic Vodka, it’s a sublimely smooth drink and would make an excellent Father’s Day gift. I’ve enjoyed it over ice with a good tonic and played around with garnishes, finding that lime slices and and a few cranberries works nicely. Having thoroughly enjoyed it I’ve got some more information about this wonderful drink to share with you, so please read on.

Faceittea Review & Competition

I’ve been very excited to try Faceittea, a sustainable skincare brand that looks to revitalise your skincare routine with all-natural plant-based ingredients, and also help look after our planet with zero-waste packaging.

We’ve been trying really hard at home to reduce our plastic use and use more sustainable products so Faceittea sounded perfect. Plus the treat of some luxury face care products was appealing to me. A little treat!

The Whimsy Wood Series

We love reading to L, it’s part of our bedtime routine. I regularly ignore age ranges on books too, and I’m so glad I did as otherwise I would have never discovered the wonderful Whimsy Wood series by Sarah Hill. I couldn’t be more excited to get to read book 9 Fearne Fairy and the Chocolate Caterpillar.

I’ll quickly explain why I love the Whimsy Wood books so much. Based in a lovely magical, woodland. They are soft and warm and filled with great fun and a strong sense of the natural world. They are the book form of that idyllic childhood feeling we all want our kids to have. You can read my previous reviews here and here. Continue reading The Whimsy Wood Series

Feeding the Birds with Chapelwood

We are a very outdoorsy family and spend a lot of time in the garden. L loves being outdoors and exploring nature.  He was very excited to be sent a special bird feeder from the Chapelwood Children’s Range.

As soon as his lovely Owl Bird Feeder arrived we had to go and fill it up to give the birds their tea. The feeder is best filled with peanuts or sunflower hearts, but all we had in the house was a mixed bird seed and L had decided the birds needed their tea right that second! Obviously there was a bit of spillage but it holds the mixed seed well.
