Shopping with boohooMAN

OK I’m going to be honest with you. I hate shopping. Hate it. I gain no pleasure from it but at least get new clothes at the end, when it comes to shopping for husb, not only is he a fussy bugger but I don’t get any new clothes, just stress. So I love to shop online and was very happy to give boohooMAN a try.  Continue reading Shopping with boohooMAN

My Night at McDonald’s

I’ve never been one to shy away from taking L to McDonald’s. If we’re travelling it’s perfect and he loves it as a special treat. There’s one everywhere you go, you know what to expect and it’s always great value. I was really excited to be invited along to a blogger event at the McDonalds by Norwich Airport.

#ChileanEasyPeelers Challenge

Fruit is never something I’ve really struggled to get into L, but sometimes finding a fruity snack he can handle himself is awkward. So the#ChileanEasyPeelers challenge with BritMums really appealed to me.  Continue reading #ChileanEasyPeelers Challenge

Laundry, all the laundry

It’s feels like a never ending task. With at least one load a day I’ll take whatever I can to make the job more pleasurable, so I joined BritMums #EcoverLaundry Challenge.

Illumi-Mate Minions Lights Review and Giveaway

L does genuinely enjoy his bedtime. So we are very lucky. I get that. I’m not going to turn down extra help when we get it though. So when Illumi-Mate asked L if he would like some Minion lights for his room he was super excited.

Purelosophy – Review and Personal Revelation

Purelosophy is a range of drinks made all-natural Alpine water boosted with herbal ingredients to help prepare your day both mentally and physically. I’ve been impressed. More than impressed actually.

Purelosophy is exactly the kind of product I love. It’s natural. Beautifully packaged. It fits really well with the calming and mindfulness practises I enjoy. It couldn’t be more of a ‘me’ thing if it tried.

7 Reasons I love The Handmade Fair

A couple of weekends ago I headed off to The Handmade Fair at Hampton Court Palace. This is the second fair I have been to, having already been to The Handmade Christmas Fair in Manchester a few years ago.

We had an excellent time and the weather was kind to us. A couple of downpours, but they were short-lived and there was plenty of cover. Here are 7 reasons I love the Handmade Fair.

Craftiosity Kits – Review

There are two things I really love. Subscription boxes and crafting. Craftiosity combines the two. A completely flexible subscription box of modern craft kits with a new craft and make each month.

I was sent the September box to try out for myself and I loved it.

Gruffalo Spotting

Like most children of his age L is a big fan of the Gruffalo. In fact it’s not just him, we’re a family of Gruffalo admirers. It’s one of my favourite books to read to him. So when we were asked to try out Magic Light Pictures ‘The Gruffalo Spotter’ app, we straight away said yes. I’m always up for a bit of Gruffalo Spotting.

Beautiful Cards from Ayoma Cards

I love sending and receiving cards. I always have a stock in the house for emergencies and forgotten birthdays but as a general rule I like to pick something special for each person. Ayoma Cards have a new subscription box service that allows me to do both.

Zoe sells completely handmade and personalised greetings cards on her Etsy shop, which you should completely check out.  But she has also launched Ayoma Cards Monthly, a new monthly subscription box service for the cards and I have tried it out.
