• Our stay at Trevornick Holywell bay – review

    Just over a week ago my niece go married at Lusty Glaze beach in Cornwall. We were going down to stay for a few days anyway but also got offered three nights stay at Trevornick for a review of the site and amenities. Cornwall is about a 5 hour jaunt from us so this was perfect to extend our stay and also stay at a part of Cornwall we had never been to before. Where is Trevornick? Trevornick is in Holywell bay, a national trust beach which is stunning. we had been to Conrwall so many times now but to be honest I had never even heard of Holywell bay which…

  • Gourmade frozen meals review

    One of my great passions is cooking. Especially now I have a family if my own, I can recreate my own favourites, creating new recipies or serving up classic traditional meals for my loved ones as for me there is nothing better than seeing someone enjoying a meal you have cooked.  In reality though, days get busier and more hectic, some days it a triumph to muster up a poached egg on toast when the pre bedtime rush is on the horizon. I was contacted by Gourmade meals to try their frozen ready meals – not your typical ready meal either, they are homemade and cooked with love, then frozen quickly,…

  • Colladeen visage review

    I’ts only just dawned on me, at the ripe old age of 32 that I now qualify for the over 30 skin product. I’m so bad at looking after my skin and I should really do some basic care, even moisturizing once a day rather than now and then. I was contacted by       Natures Best a few weeks ago to give their collagen supplements, Colladeen Visage a decent trial over several weeks to see if the boost of collagen could help rejuvenate my skin whilst also offering skin protection against sun damage. My skin was tired, dull, dry and limp pretty much always, even when exfoliated. Why collagen?…

  • Enjoying an afternoon tea at Halesowen golf club

    Me and my fave gal Twinderelmo  love lusting over delicious, tasty treats and very rarely make a date and do anything about it. However, we ADORE an afternoon tea as it’s a chance to spoil ourselves, over indulge and have a good natter, so when we were invited to Halesowen Golf Club to try their new afternoon tea menu, there really was only one answer! it wasn’t too far a trip for us and it’s quite a pretty one,  The golf club just appears down a lovely wooded lane that is dotted with bluebells, daffodils and of course the beautifully sculpted fairway. I was quite nervous arriving as I have never…

  • Googly fruit – fruit snack review

    I’m lucky that my boys like fruit, I always worry that the day will come that they will become bored of it or Freddie may fall out of favour with it once he is at school and he gets to see the variety of things in people’s lunch boxes. That being said I feel it’s super important to mix things up a little. We have been sent a range of different organic fruit and veg  snacks from Googly Fruit and the whole family have enjoyed a fruit snack, not just our boys! What are they? Googly fruit are snacks made of organic fruit and veg aimed at kids without all the…

  • Kinetic rock 3 in one loader review

    Freddie loves all things construction and can spend hours creating a building site out of the gravel and soil from the back garden. Usually on the kitchen floor. Ace. As you can imagine I was thrilled when we were offered the chance to review the Kinetic Rock 3 in 1 loader set from the well known Kinetic sand. Freddie has loved playing with it because he can build things out of the rock that doesn’t fall down and I love it because it’s so easy to pack away! In the kinetic rock 3 in one loader kit In the pack you get a bag of the kinetic rock in a…

  • Bambo Nature Eco friendly Nappies review

    With both boys I have pretty much stuck with what works works and not ventured much futher. Especially with nappies I have stuck to this mantra as there is nothing worse than a soggy baby and soggy baby clothes. I know that this sounds awful but I have always, always been told that eco friendly nappies they don’t work as well and that they are false economy. I was approached by Bambo Nature to give their eco nappies a trial and give an honest report back on how I found using them, warts and all. About Bambo Eco Nappies Bambo Eco nappies have been made with the environment and your baby…

  • Get Nourished Coffee review

    Even before I had children, my morning routine always contained one staple – coffee. Now I have the two boys my mornings are a little more rushed and contain a lot more coffee. It’s a little grasp at a chunk of me time where I can replenish some enegery and take a little breather before the craziness of the day starts – even if it means that most days my coffee is cold! Get Nourished contacted me to see if they could help. Get Nourished When Get Nourished contacted me I was excitied to try their new product – high protein (as much as in a steak!) iced coffees! Lets face…

    Parents bedroom mini makeover – a space for us

    After two and a half years in our house, we decided that our bedroom definitely needed some love! Until  our makeover it had a large dark purple feature wall and nothing really matching. Our stamp wasn’t on it and it never seemed like ‘ours’. We decided to change the feature wall colour, add some focal points and just generally have more soft furnishings to make it our own little haven and somewhere we can relax, as well as enjoying the space we created. We also were lucky enough to be gifted some wonderful items for review to help make our room be a place we adore. Bedroom feature wall The…

  • Getting out of the safe gift zone with UncommonGoods

    I’m a gift bore. I just have zero inspiration on finding the ideal gift and end up sticking with a safe item, you know – a nice deodorant set. How boring. Thankfully when UncommonGoods got in touch with me and asked to see if I can find any fun gift ideas I was really happy to oblige because it’s exactly what I need right now. UncommonGoods have a really positive ethos I haven’t really come across in a business before. They like to be green and not just the fact of helping the planet, animals and things like that but with looking after their employees like offering health insurance to…
