When you hear the word Lindt at this time of year, you can’t help but think of their gold chocolate reindeer. The cute little reindeer with it’s red velvet bow and tinkling bell, all ready to surprise you when you open your Christmas stocking. But it’s not all about the reindeers, as Lindt also has a fantastic variety of other products to tempt us with this Christmas.

Smiggle advent calendar

We recently had the chance to review one of the advent calendars which have been released for this year. I of course passed the very important task of opening each door over to my daughter. Katie discovered Smiggle a few years ago and loves the products as they are bright, fun and colourful. … Continue reading

I can’t believe we have less than 3 weeks of the summer holidays to go, and of course my mind is full of various to do lists. Anybody else have the dreaded school shoe purchases still to make ? Thankfully Katie is one step ahead of me, and is organised as ever with her ‘back to school stationery box’. I kid you not, a box FULL of stationery for when she starts high school in September. And thanks to Smiggle, she now has a few more items to add to her box.

Katie loves the ‘adventures wallet’ and with it being so bright and colourful there is less chance of her losing it.… Continue reading

Tis the season for giving, and I have teamed up with L’Occitane and Hotel Chocolat for a festive giveaway. This time of year always seems to be a blur of shopping, wrapping and endless to do lists. And we often forget to relax and look after ourselves.

L'Occitane and Hotel Chocolat

If you follow me on social media you might know that I was a very lucky lady on the 1st December. My wonderful husband surprised me with the L’Occitane advent calendar, and every day I have been using the products behind each door. It has been my chance to relax in the evening and pamper myself with hand creams, shower gels and divine smelling soap.… Continue reading

I’m not sure what it is about October, but my brain seems to fast forward to Christmas. After being presented with the kid’s Christmas lists at the weekend, I decided it was time to start the serious business of Christmas shopping. Being a typical teenager Morgan’s list consists of PlayStation games, PlayStation vouchers and PlayStation magazines. I wanted to add some non PlayStation gifts to his list, something that would be cool and captivating to a 14 year old boy. And this is where the Book of Everyone comes in.

The Book of Everyone is a 50 page personalised book, which can be ordered in deluxe, hardback, paperback and digital versions.… Continue reading

With October half term approaching fast, wondering how to fill our days are at the front of my mind. The thing with October is you can never guarantee the weather. Some days have a typical Autumnal feel to them with a chill in the air. Whilst other days have us peeling our coats off in the Autumn sunshine. I like to fill our days with a mixture of outside adventures, plus some cosy indoor activities, and what better way than heading to the theatre this October.

Railway Children

For 2 days during half term you can catch the brand new adaption of The Railway children, at The Epstein Theatre in the heart of Liverpool.… Continue reading

With less than 4 weeks to go until the return to school, there is only one thing on my daughter’s mind……. shiny new stationery. She has even dedicated a box in the playroom for all her new supplies, so when Smiggle sent her some awesome back to school stationery she was very excited.

Back to school with Smiggle

Smiggle stands for where a smile meets a giggle, quite possibly the best store name ever.  The first store was opened in Australia way back in 2003, and in 2014 Smiggle came to the UK. The brand is all about delivering fun and innovative products, encouraging children to be creative, and offering a fantastic range from pencil sharpeners to cool lunch bags.… Continue reading

What a glorious week it has been weather wise, and we have had lots of family time sat in the garden. We have had picnics on the decking, water fights and enjoying playing card games. I was recently sent our very own personalised Happy Families card game from Go for it Games. I remember playing Happy Families with my own parents when I was little, and now I was getting the chance to play it with my own children.

And not just any version of Happy Families, but a very special ‘Happy Williams Families’. The traditional game has been revamped and there are lots of surnames to choose from on their website.… Continue reading

Back in March, my 10 year old was very excited to review a brand new product called Num Noms. The latest in collectible toys, Num Noms are cute, fun and scented.  Due to the huge success of the Num Nom products, I am offering a 2nd giveaway on my blog to win a Num Nom Deluxe Pack (worth £14.99) PLUS 2 mystery pots (worth £2.99 each).

I was recently given the opportunity to review 2 copies of the new Amazing! magazine which is aimed at children aged 7 plus. Amazing! is not only fun, but also educational as it is based on the National Curriculum.  My first thoughts when I opened the brightly coloured envelope was the quality of the magazine. The pages have a luxurious feel due to the thickness and are filled with vibrant colours and pictures.

Amazing Magazine

The subjects covered in each issue are English, Maths, Science, Arts and Humanities. I guess each month covers a particular subject as the 2 magazines we received were ‘Human Body Special’ and an ‘Ancient Rome Special’.… Continue reading
