Confidence And Why We Should Have It.

I have to admit I am not all that confident at times, I can be a little shy and nervous, mostly because I am scared of doing something wrong. The lack of confidence can be a number of things, you may be body confident but not confident enough to answer a question in a pub quiz. You may be smart confident because you know it is factually correct but not confident with grey areas. Don’t worry it isn’t just you, there are millions of people over the world who aren’t confident in one way or another. For me this stems from childhood, I had one particular teacher at school (who was a lovely lady but stern) if she asked me… View Post

Review: Corsair Gaming MM300 Extended

Last year I FINALLY bought a mediocre second-hand gaming PC. I say that because as I’m sure you know gaming PC’s are expensive, and I wanted to be sure I would use it enough to justify the cost. Slowly but surely as I’ve been using the PC more and more I’ve been adding new peripherals to my set up, and today finally, it was time to add a mouse mat. Not just any mouse mat though, the Corsair Gaming MM300 Extended. I’ve been in love with Corsair products like many gamers for as long as I can remember. However much like a gaming PC itself, the Corsair products aren’t cheap which is my reasoning for putting this purchase off for… View Post

Summer Time Fun With Glove-A-Bubbles

We had the most wonderful time at BlogOnX in Manchester earlier this month, catching up with old friends and meeting new while taking a look at some of this year’s most promising toys. With summer on the horizon (at least I think… I mean one moment it’s snowing the next it’s the hottest day on record) a toy that really caught our eye was Glove-A-Bubbles. It turns out the creative characters of Glove-A-Bubbles also interested Matilda pretty quickly too (so quickly, in fact, we struggled to take a photo without her running off with one) The all-in-one bubble creating fun of Glove-A-Bubbles makes creating hundreds of bubbles quick, easy and contained. This video demonstrates how all this is possible; Within… View Post

LOL Doll Surprise Confetti Pop Review

To say LOL Dolls have taken the world by storm is an understatement. We have seen the rise of LOL Dolls and the evolution of the pets, little sisters and now we have LOL surprise. This is the LOL Dolls Confetti Pop. If you’re a bit of a collecting nerd like we are then you can learn more about the first LOL dolls series here. This series of Confetti Pop is no different from the other series. But this series, of course, has an added surprise. The layers are different to get into but are still fun to do, there is still the zip to start the process. There is still the smaller parts to unravel such as the pieces of… View Post

Epcot The Ultimate Adults Disney Playground

While I feel Epcot is forgotten and underrated especially with children, I feel it needs to gain some love and attention. I really noticed that Disney spotted a trend and made something for the older generation of Disney fans to enjoy. Epcot is now what I would call the ultimate adults Disney playground, it has everything we enjoy. It hosts the finer things in life such a culture, nice food, different types of drinks alcoholic and not and a touch of Disney. On our latest trip, we managed to catch the wonderful Flower and Garden Festival at Epcot. In September they were also hosting the Food and Wine Festival, unlucky for us we couldn’t get there. Epcot has really honed… View Post

April 2018 – What We Watched This Month

April turned out to be a busy month for us but we still managed to make time for our loved programmes and even found some new ones. We also flew to Orlando for a 2 week holiday and got to see some new stuff on the flight which is always good. We managed to binge watch a whole new series and start on the next one. Let’s check out what we watched this month… The Adults Marvels Jessica Jones While I have watched a couple of Marvel films and like a good superhero story I hadn’t fallen into the fan zone like some others. While searching through Netflix for a new series to binge on, we stumbled on Jessica Jones.… View Post

Our 2018 Bucket List – Update #1

Back at the start of the year (which was now four months ago… SERIOUSLY!!), we sat down together to come up with a bucket list of things we’d like to achieve in 2018. We tried to come up with a variety of things that would enhance our life together over the course of 12 months, and as with all goals, it’s important you reflect on them often. Which is why, today, a third of the way through the year we’re doing our first update. Go Away Once A Month We were determined to go away at least once a month this month and so far… so good! Well, except for March when only Helen went away on a Hen Do to… View Post

Our Photos From Walt Disney World 2018

If you didn’t already know we love Disney, everything Disney to be precise. This year we took our 3rd trip to Orlando to visit Walt Disney World. We were supposed to visit back in September but due to bad weather, the holiday got cancelled. So when we booked again we booked to visit in April. Here are some of our photos from our trip. While we have visited Walt Disney World before we never had to money or opportunity to get the Disney photo pass. This time was different as it was part of our ticket bundle and we really wanted to make the most of it. We decided to meet everyone we possibly could in the time we had and… View Post

We’re Going To BlogOnX

Helen and I are both excited to be attending BlogonX in exactly 14 days time (by which time we’ll be home from Orlando, Florida and have spent five nights in Iceland… we have A LOT going on right now) It’s my third time at the BlogOn conference (I think… it could be fourth!) and Helen’s second. However, it’s the first time we’ll be attending together to represent our multigenerational lifestyle blog The Harrison Household. We, therefore, figured it was pretty fitting to complete the BlogOnX linky which you can learn more about right here… Share a recent photo of yourself Here’s a quick snap of us meeting the one and only Ariel at Magic Kingdom, Walt Disney World last week 🙂 What’s… View Post

Everything You Need To Know About Mardles Rocks

I’ve loved Geo-caching for as long as I can remember, but I can’t always imagine it’s that fun for kids (especially after one or two finds…) which is why when I heard about Mardles Rocks I knew it was going to be a hit! So, what is Mardles Rocks? The idea is very simple to Geocaching, just with added AR and a little more emphasis on design and creativity – which in my opinion is what makes it perfect for kids! In short, hide and or find decorated rocks and move or reside them for others to find. However, what makes Mardles Rocks unique from other decorated rocks is the ability to add AR (augmented reality) While you can find… View Post
