CanvasChamp : review

Updating photo frames and pictures around the house can not only be time consuming but can also end up costing a small fortune. There are so many ways now to display your images from photo frames, canvas prints, acrylic, wooden blocks, the choice seems endless. However, we tend to always go back to canvas. So when CanvasChamp got in contact, I jumped at the chance to review one of their canvas prints. I knew immediately which photo I was going {Read More}

VonShef 750W Food Processor : Review

Over the past couple of weeks, I’ve been putting the VonShef 750W Food Processor through its paces to see if it can save me time in the kitchen at meal times. It’s also inspired me to try and make healthy snacks for the children instead of buying them! What’s Inside? You will receive: 2 litre bowl 1.8 litre jug Stainless steel coarse grater Stainless steel fine grater Emulsifying disc Stainless steel shredder Plastic dough blade Stainless steel chopper blade Citrus {Read More}

Do you celebrate Valentine’s Day?

Do you and your partner do anything special for Valentine’s Day or do you see it as a complete waste of time and money? I must admit that my husband and I never used to do much on Valentine’s Day, we’d buy each other a card but that was about it. We made the conscious decision not to celebrate it as such because our ‘dating anniversary’ was a week later on the 21st February. However, since we married in 2011, {Read More}

Glam & Style Conical Curling Wand

Over the years, I’ve tried to find a curling wand that actually works and one where the curls actually last longer than walking out the house. My issue is that I have quite naturally curly yet frizzy hair so to get a nice smooth curl, I have to either blow-dry my hair straight first or straighten it before attempting to put a curl in it. As I’ve straightened it before curling, the curl can sometimes drop far too quickly and {Read More}

B-Sensible 2 in 1 Fitted Sheets

If you have children, you will completely understand the rigmarole of having to change your child’s bedding in the middle of the night if they’ve been ill or had an accident. The actual changing of the sheets isn’t too bad in itself but if the mess has seeped through onto the mattress or pillows, it can be a real pain. Recently my two were both ill in the night. Poor Benjamin was sick about 6 times during the night and {Read More}

November Rain Poncho Review

With the wonderful weather we are often faced with in the UK, especially over the spring and summer, I often end up taking clumpy rain coats out and either get too hot with a coat on, or end up hauling it round just because of the unpredictability. Well now I have a simple, elegant and more importantly, a compact solution. November Rain Ponchos are a fully waterproof (not just rain resistant) ponchos which come in a range of prints and {Read More}

Moyles Ankle Boots from Lotus

If you are like me, you can never have too many pairs of boots – especially as our British weather means we are in boots longer than any other type of footwear! The Moyles Ankle Boots are brilliant for dressing up or down and certainly look exceptionally stylish! The faux shearling is applied to the turned down collar and you can wear this up or turned down depending on the look you are going for. The leather is lovely and {Read More}

Chalkola Chalk Markers

We’ve used chalk boards with the children to help them write and for playing with but the dust always gets everywhere and the colours aren’t particularly bight. They do need quite a bit of shaking and dabbing before the ink comes out smoothly but once the ink is flowing, the pens write so well. Chalkola have changed that! They have come up with chalk pens which write beautifully and have the brightest colour and vibrancy to them. They are relatively {Read More}

GTech Multi handheld vacuum: Review

Last year we were sent the GTech AirRam to review and you can read what we thought about it here. One of the only elements that I felt that was missing from this machine was the lack of attachment features to get into all those hard to reach areas. Well to solve this dilemma, we’ve been sent the new, high performance GTech Multi handheld to review to compliment the performance of the AirRam and my first impressions of it are {Read More}

JORD Wooden Watches: Review and contest!

I have had my eye on one of these watches for a while now but always worried they’d be too bulky for my tiny wrists. So when I was offered the chance to review one of their Zebrawood and Maple , I couldn’t have been happier. I am totally smitten with this wooden watch and have worn it every day I’ve owned it (I usually only wear a watch to work) but think the JORD wooden watches are such a {Read More}
