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 is behind each door, there are plenty of people that want to know exactly what they will be getting for their money.… Continue reading

My 12 year old has been dying to get her hands on one of these toys ever since they came out, so she was super excited when Smiggle sent us 2 Squishies to review, and a further 3 to giveaway to my readers. This is the second series in the Squishies range from Smiggle, and there are 8 characters for you to collect.

Smiggle Squishies - Review and Giveaway

As you would expect from Smiggle, the Squishies are bright, fun and a little bit quirky, and Katie chose to test out Bella Strawbeary and Buster Soda Pop. Each character is made of super soft foam, and you can rest assured that the Smiggle Squishies meet the European standard for Toys.… Continue reading

The back to school adverts are in full swing, and social media is awash with stressed out parents embarking on the dreaded school shoe shopping. Thankfully I have had to be mega organised this year, as we go away right at the end of the summer holidays.

If you still have a to do list as long as your arm, and wondering why they need SO MANY things to return to school, Smiggle has the answer with a Back to School Giveaway.

I was kindly sent some items from their Back to School range, and you have the chance to win them all in my Smiggle Giveaway.… Continue reading

There is no getting away from the fact that advent calendars seem to be a huge part in the run up to Christmas, and it seems nowadays you can open those 24 (or if you are lucky 25) doors and find pretty much anything behind it. I have selected 5 calendars that are available this year suitable for tweens, teens and adults.

Mad Beauty

This has got my 11 year old daughter’s name written all over it. The Mad Beauty calendar is filled with 24 items of make up which includes eye shadow, lipsticks and nail polish. The full contents are listed on the back of the calendar, so no peaking if you want it to be a surprise.… Continue reading

Tis the season to start thinking about advent calendars, and my 11 year old daughter has already started her campaign to find the best one. Being a stationery addict she is of course drawn to the advent calendar from Smiggle. The calendar promises 25 days of stationery surprises, as well as offering a great competition to win a whopping £500 Smiggle shopping spree.… 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.

If you have a school age child there is no doubt you have already heard of Smiggle, the stationery store that is taking over the UK. The stores are full of fun, bright and innovative products from pencils cases to water bottles, fruit smelling pencils to brightly coloured bags. Smiggle certainly have all your stationery and school supplies covered.

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
