Beanies Coffee review

I heard of Beanies Coffee a few months ago in my Slimming World class, and I was kindly sent 4 of the flavours to review. After trying them for the past few days I absolutely love them all, and really can not pick out a favourite. So I thought I would share some reasons why you need to try Beanie Coffee for yourself.

Sticking to your budget this Christmas

Sticking to your budget this Christmas

If you’re dreading January already, the credit card bills, the scrimping and saving for Christmas, then now is the time to do something about it. You don’t have to accept Christmas debt, you can take steps to create and stick to a sensible budget for this coming festive period.

Work out how much you are going to spend

Think about everything you’ll have at your disposal. This includes the points balances on loyalty cards, unused vouchers, and stamp schemes if you’ve been using any. And of course your salary. When you’ve totted everything … Continue reading

Last Saturday night we were invited to try out the menu at a local pub in Warrington. The Ring O’Bells is a completely new pub to us, and is located on Church Street on the outskirts of Warrington town centre. Despite its close proximity to the centre of town, the pub is nestled next to a beautiful church on a cobbled side street, and the pub itself is a listed building.

Open Fire

After going through a refurbishment in 2017, the pub has retained many of it’s features such as an open fire and traditional beams, which gives the pub a warm … Continue reading

*This post does contain pictures of the full contents of the Smiggle 2018 calendar* 

I have no idea how it is time to start thinking about Christmas already, but the 1st of December is fast approaching and that can only mean one thing…… Advent Calendars.

Smiggle Advent Calendar

Advent Calendars are hugely popular, and once again my daughter has been tasked with the very important job of reviewing one of the calendars from Smiggle. We reviewed the 2017 calendar, and it was by far my most popular blog post of last year. Whilst many adults and children prefer the secrecy of what … Continue reading

Many of you will know that we had an amazing family holiday to Mexico in the summer holidays. A holiday that saw us returning with healthy glows, cases of holiday washing, and hundreds of photos stored on my iPhone. I am sure we are all guilty of sharing those carefully selected holiday shots on social media, but how can we keep our holiday memories alive ?

Keeping Holiday Memories alive with Tesco Photo

Thankfully Tesco Photo came along at just the right time, and they gave us the opportunity to try out their photo printing and personalised gifts service. I must admit I didn’t even know that … Continue reading

On Sunday as we were driving along the M55 into Blackpool, we played the usual game of ‘who can spot The Tower’ first. A few hours later and we were at the top of The Blackpool Tower, seeing who would be brave enough to stand on the Blackpool Tower glass floor. No trip to Blackpool is complete without setting foot inside the world famous Blackpool Tower.

How much is the Blackpool Tower Eye Experience ?

The Tower Eye Experience is currently priced at £12.50 per adult on the day, and £10.00 per child. If you book online, prices can be … Continue reading

How have I not written a Little Loves post since July….. JULY. I have no excuse but to say that life has got in the way, and I know the whole reason behind Little Loves is to focus on the positives. So tonight I have taken a deep breath, switched on my laptop, and here are my Little Loves that have kept me smiling throughout the month of October.

I am loving switching off in the evenings and losing myself in a book. I am probably averaging one book a week, and I am alternating between psychological thrillers, … Continue reading

Galloway Burger House

During our recent trip to the beautiful area of Dumfries and Galloway, we visited the Galloway Burger House. Located in the village of Gatehouse of Fleet, the burger restaurant can be found inside the Galloway Lodge. During the day you can browse the fantastic selection of jams, chutney and mustard. Or wander around the beautiful gift shop, and stop for a coffee and cake in the café. But on Friday evenings (plus Saturdays in June/July/August) the café is transformed into the Galloway Lodge Gatehouse Burger Night.

Let’s all cast our minds back to when we had wall to wall sunshine, we lived on ice cream and BBQ food, and our summer clothes had never been worn so much. Coincidentally, the heatwave started just as my teenager finished school for 10 weeks. No revision, no exams and no school, just a summer of fun to look forward to which started with the National Citizen Service (NCS) at the end of June.

NCS

NCS is a Government backed scheme, and is aimed at children aged 16 to 17. Almost half a million teenagers have taken part since NCS … Continue reading

I know we have only just entered October, but now is the perfect time to start thinking about Christmas Pantomimes. The popular Epstein Theatre in the heart of Liverpool, will be playing host to Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs from Friday 7th December to Wednesday 2nd January 2019.
