Our Easter Saturday At National Trust Bodiam Castle

For somebody who didn’t feel very Easter-y this year, we ended up doing quite a few Easter themed activities. Our Easter holidays were pretty much jam filled with different things for us to do and now we are back to school runs. I feel we need another holiday to recover from the Easter holidays if I’m honest. Our Easter weekend …

Chocolate Lolly Maker Review

We are heading into the Easter holidays. For us, they are pretty long. P2 always gets an extra week or so as her nursery runs as a private one and not strictly alongside state school holiday times. P1 has two weeks the poor sod. Any way, it’s definitely time to start thinking about activities, days out and things to do …

An Easter Egg Hunt At Marsh Farm

I have not really thought about Easter. Last year I was really excited about it all and I put together a basket of goodies for the girls to enjoy during their school holidays. We spent a weekend at my Grandad’s and had an amazing time at the Marsh Farm Easter event. This year, I haven’t really had much planned and I certainly …

A Trip To Little Street Maidstone

I am always on the hunt for new ways to entertain the kids outside of our own home. When we received an invite to head along to the blogger preview of Little Street in Maidstone, I was pretty excited. I honestly had no idea what it was going to be like except the advertised “kid sized town” which instantly made …

Going To The Library

It feels like such a long time ago since reading a story at bedtime felt like a chore. I never used to see the importance of books despite my own love for reading and writing. But I also experienced mum guilt surrounding the topic of bedtime story time and eventually I made it part of our routine. I don’t feel …

Sands Alive Cake Shop Review

I am going to say it out right, right now! I nearly turned this product down to review. I’m trying my best to be more selective this year and only choose products that I honestly believe in to share with you. This one didn’t scream too much excitement at first but there was this tugging at my heart strings that …

Unveiling Their Inner Genie With Fisher-Price Shimmer & Shine Toys

In the first year of my blogging journey I got to work with Fisher-Price. Our house rapidly became a museum of their toys but as the girls got older the Fisher-Price toys moved on to new owners and the plastic reduced. The thing is, for me FP produced toys for younger children and that’s the view I have carried with …

We were given some popcorn and one of the new Project Mc2 Dolls With Experiments to try.  The six main characters in the …

Project Mc2 Dolls Review

My girls are gradually steering away from the Peppa Pig episodes and moving onto more grown up programmes. We actually never watch live television and rely solely on our Netflix subscription and YouTube to keep the girls entertained. I’ve started to introduce them to more programmes that are less animated and much more life like. One of the Ines I’m …

Yeti In My Spaghetti Game Review

I have a soft spot for both books and board games. It’s always really hard to find a perfect game that we can all play together that holds the attention of my girls for long enough so I was quite excited when University Games got in touch to ask me if I’d like to give Yeti In My Spaghetti a go.  …

We were lucky enough to receive the brand new Num Noms Series 3 Lunch Box Deluxe Pack Style 1, 2 Mystery Packs and 1 of the brand new Series 1 Lights Mystery Pack. I immediately knew that P1 would adore these and so we wrapped them up for her birthday. …

Ok, I know I am a little late in posting this but there is still a few days left until Christmas, kind of! I have put together a little gift guide for under one year olds. I have chosen this age because I remember finding this age really difficult to buy for and now I have done it three times …
