Making a splash with swimming nature

  *You may want to grab a cuppa for this one. It’s a bit long, but I wanted to give Swimming Nature the full and fair review that they deserve. If you are already looking to book, there’s a 10% off code at the bottom of this post.   I’ve been on the lookout for beginners children’s swimming lessons for sometime now. Little Button has always loved the water. Whether…

L.O.L. Surprise! Biggie Pets Review

  We are huge fans of L.O.L. Surprise toys. They’re cute, sassy and super collectible. I’d thought we’d seen it all. First the L.O.L. Surprise dolls. Then the pets. Giggle inducing confetti launchers. And most recently the giant fizzer. But there’s something new in town. And it’s quite different from the usual L.O.L Surprise line. Introducing the L.O.L. Surprise! Biggie Pets Eye Spy Series. *The clue is in biggie.  …

My Sunday Photo – We’re going on a bear hunt live!

  We were super excited to head into London for this. We’re going on a bear hunt live! at the Lyric theatre. I’m not sure who was more excited though, me or Little Button!? It was our first time covering an event for BritMums, and you can read all about what we thought of the show here.     Feeling completely inspired, Little Button set off creating her own version…

L.O.L Surprise! Pearl Surprise Review

Leisure Chefmaster CC100F521C Dual Fuel Range Cooker Review from AO.COM

BKD Mini Bakers Club Review

  We love baking! There’s nothing more exciting than getting our hands completely gooey with batter and creating (mostly) edible goodies to share. I don’t think we do this nearly enough. And it’s usually because we won’t have the right stash of ingredients in the cupboard at the time when ‘let’s bake’ is happily yelled. But help is at hand! The clever bods over at BKD have come up with…

A Hilarious New Book By The Funniest Bloggers Across The Land

  I somehow managed to snort cold tea up my nose when one of my blogging besties told me that it was happening. She was finally (and very deservedly) getting one of her fantastic rhymes published. In. A. Book. A real book! Yay Dawn (aka Rhyming With Wine). There was much squeaking, whooping and cheering for at least a week in celebration from over in the #DreamTeam corner of the…
