The Wind in the Willows

As you all know I have been very much looking forward to the start of Interlude in the Close, the line up is phenomenal and it’s a joy to have theatre back.

Things kicked off with The Wind in the Willows, a musical production written by Academy Award winner Julian Fellowes with music by the award-winning Stiles & Drewe, presented by the Turbine Theatre, London.

Dig & Display Fossil Kit

With the summer holidays looming it’s always good to have some activities up your sleeve for a rainy day. For us one of the things we go back to time and time again are fossil dig kits. They are simple and easy to use and happily keep L occupied for quite a while depending on the size. We’ve recently tried the Dig & Display Fossil Kit from Learning Resources and its one of the best we have had!

Win a Badminton Starter Set

I remember moving house when I was in high school and our new house had a massive back garden, with a huge lawn and loads of space to play. That summer we got a badminton set and me and my sister spent hours in the garden playing. It was great. So when asked if L would maybe like his own badminton starter set, of course I said yes!

JUNKO – The Perfect Boredom Buster

Mummy I’m bored. Says the child surrounded by toys and distractions. How many times do you hear this? Especially over the summer holidays! I’m always on the lookout for different activities that I can have on hand for these moments, over the half term we tested out a couple of the sets on offer from Planet JUNKO and we are both super impressed. To explain briefly you are taking junk modelling to extremes and really notching those creations up a gear.

Alteya Lavender Water

I have been lucky to try a few new skincare products recently, one of which is Alteya Organic Bulgarian Lavender Water. A simple product made of lavender and water that I have been absolutely loving. It’s a brilliant summer product as not only does it do wonders for your skin, it’s cooling and refreshing too.

Power on the Go with mophie

Powerbanks. We’ve all heard of them. Many of us have used them. But they’ve got their drawbacks, big and cumbersome or tiny and barely help. Not all that attractive and wires tangling everywhere in your bag or pocket. The Powerstation Mini from mophie solves all that and I’ve been putting it through its paces.

Conscious Chocolate – A Review

Never one to turn down chocolate I was very intrigued to try the offerings from Conscious Chocolate. As a general rule I don’t go too fancy with my chocolates, I prefer a good quality dark chocolate over a milk, but it tends to just be off the shelf from the supermarket and enjoyed of an evening. Conscious Chocolate offers something a bit different, being a raw chocolate and I was intrigued to give it a go.

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!

Vegan Life from Naturopathica

I’ve recently been trying out the Vegan Life Immune Multi-Vit, one of the supplements in the Vegan Life range. Vegan Life offer targeted nutrition for Vegans and Vegetarians, or just anyone who wants a good vitamin that is sustainable.

I am pescatarian and have been my whole life, but that isn’t what drew me to Vegan Life, it was the fully compostable packaging and sustainably sourced ingredients. I am actively trying to reduce our plastic use and general waste and this is just a super easy swap. I take a daily multivitamin already, now I can continue doing so without the plastic.
