Disney on Ice Passport to Adventure at The 02 (REVIEW)

Disney on Ice has always been on my ‘with the family’ to do list, and like so many other big events with young kids, we have been waiting for the right time to go for it – to make sure as best as possible the girls were at the right age to maximise the return on investment of the ticket price. Ie sit on their bums for the duration of the show, know who all the characters are, and be more interested in the skating than the ice cream. more “Disney on Ice Passport to Adventure at The 02 (REVIEW)”

The Supermum Myth Book review & #Giveaway

Super Mum. Do you know her? Perhaps you’ve crossed paths with her once or twice, probably at a PTA meeting or whizzing past you on the school run in designer gym gear. Ironically, to someone else you may be perceived as Super Mum – juggling work and kids who always seem so well behaved, with plenty of time to yourself, and loads of help from your friends and family. Or conversely, blissfully a stay at home Mum, never missing a school performance or trip, always there at the classroom door and knowing everyone in the line, every school calendar date and all over each school notice. more “The Supermum Myth Book review & #Giveaway”

Move over Satsumas in stockings, time for Strawberry shampoo in your hessian sack; A Vosene kids giveaway

Like many Mums, I have to confess, the bulk of the kids stocking fillers are made up with bits and pieces they actually need, as opposed to high ticket items – it’s just enough to get their juices flowing and extend the whole ‘HE’S BEEN’ hysteria for as long as possible (long enough to make a brew and turn on the tree lights).  more “Move over Satsumas in stockings, time for Strawberry shampoo in your hessian sack; A Vosene kids giveaway”

Mum On Time, naturally – with Jord Wood Watches + BlackFriday Discount Giveaway

As a Mum who is never, and I mean NEVER, late, a watch has become something I feel lost without; an essential piece of my Mum kit. Two christmases ago I was gifted the ultimate in cool watches – an iWatch, but although it has it’s perks, a watch that buzzes, rings and runs out of battery every 12 hours has not always been practical. I’ve had my eye out for something a little more classic in a wrist watch for a while now, and something that speaks to my individual personality and taste. more “Mum On Time, naturally – with Jord Wood Watches + BlackFriday Discount Giveaway”

DIY Washing Machine Service with Dr. Beckmann (REVIEW)

When you think about your home appliances, there is probably only one you could truly not live without. I mean, dishwasher, oven, microwave, tumble drier…there have probably been times you’ve managed fine (ish) without one. But imagine your life minus your washing machine. Cold sweats? Cue images of being knee deep in laundry by the end of day one, and up to your neck by day seven… more “DIY Washing Machine Service with Dr. Beckmann (REVIEW)”

Disneyland Paris – A parents survival guide

I should probably start by saying I am not a guru on all things Disney (well, not unless you can count knowing all the lyrics to the back catalogue of Disney Princess Classics). But I am a Mum of two girls, who has now been to Disneyland Paris twice. Having returned from our latest trip just last night, I’m just brimming with the hints and tips that every parent needs to know before heading to Disneyland Paris. I should know, I was googling them myself last week. more “Disneyland Paris – A parents survival guide”

#SmileWith Smiggle launches at Bluewater @Smiggle_

As a child I would have LOVED Smiggle. Stationery heaven and a colourful, scentiful blissful assault on the senses. It’s no wonder our girls are huge fans, as it’s been somewhat encouraged by my own love of the brand. Glitter and fur, rainbows, pinks and purples, cute animals and magical creatures, scented gear, pencil cases and water bottles… I want it all.  more “#SmileWith Smiggle launches at Bluewater @Smiggle_”
