Review: Snazaroo Mini Theme Face Paint Packs with Weekend Box

Last weekend we were sent a special package to review from the Weekend Box Club with Snazaroo. The Weekend Box Club send out parcels with crafty activities for children and this special box contained two new compact Snazaroo face paint products (available in shops soon priced £2.99). The mini face paint kits contain all you need to get painting your family’s face and we all found them great fun.

Why I love Ocado

I feel I need to start this post by saying it isn’t a collaborative post and I haven’t been paid or incentivised in anyway to write it. I have been an Ocado customer for years and despite trying a few other home delivery services I haven’t found any others I am happy with. No company is perfect, and I’ve had a few grumbles, but I still love Ocado. Find out why...

Why I don't want to get married ... again

Wedding season draws to a close for 2017 but my Facebook newsfeed is once again full of wedding photo's. Beautiful people in beautiful dresses. People I once used to laugh with and think of as friends. People who have long forgotten me. You see all the photographs remind me of what would be missing from my wedding if I were ever to get married again... friends.

My Toddler At 19 Months

Which animal describes my youngest daughter best? If you asked me when we got off the aeroplane last week I would definitely have said an octopus, but I think the most similar animal is still a monkey. Admittedly she doesn’t fling her poo, but she has been found with it on her hands a few times. Add in her mischievous ways and how she loves to entertain people and there are definitely monkey tendencies. It has been a great month playing in the sun, spending plenty of time with Big Sister and a whole load of chatting, but what else has Little been up to this month?

Review: Thinking outside the box with Gel-a-Peel

This summer Big Sister and I have been playing with Gel-a-Peel. These tubes of gel come in a set with stencils to create your own jewellery which can be worn when dry. After creating a few bracelets we got creative and personalised some headphones because the gel is great to decorate items too. The best thing is once dry you can peel the gel off most non-porous surfaces and start all over again when you fancy a change.
