How To Make a DIY Dinosaur Tail

How To Make An Onion And Mushroom Puff Pastry Pizza

I love ready rolled pastry, I think for those quick meal preps or those like me who don’t know how to make their own pastry just yet it is a great item to have in the house. For us it is quick a luxury and doesn’t happen often, we live quite frugal lives and don’t like to spend too much on food. But at £1.30 Tesco’s own brand of puff pastry, you can’t go wrong. I fed 2 people with a large portion and a small side salad and it was great, I halved the pastry to get 2 meals from it. Feeding 4+ you can opt to use the same half and mix with a side salad, coleslaw or… View Post

January 2018 – What We Watched This Month

January said to be the longest month and one of the most miserable. Not to me, January is the time your favourite shows come back from winter break and you can see the launch of new shows. It can be a very exciting time for TV binging and I am here to tell you what we watched this month – January 2018! The Adults Black Mirror Season 1-4 Black Mirror has been an eye opener and fascinating watch. It was all quite realistic but with a futuristic twist, making it quite scary thinking it was all possible. We enjoyed every episode of every season of this show. It was all fantastic writing, great acting and I don’t feel like there… View Post

As a child I baked quite often with my Grandma, she made everything from cake to trifle. She taught me many things but one of my favourite things was a fruit crumble.

My sister got lucky with my nephew Frankie, his favourite things to eat are fruit, veg and salad. A parent’s dream right?

Heelys Fresh X2 Review + Win A Pair Of Heelys Fresh X2 Thanks To Skates.co.uk

Heelys aren’t a new brand by any means. They’ve been around since I was a child. However, when Skates.co.uk encouraged us to check out the new range of Heelys Fresh I was impressed to see how far the brand and the skating shoes had come. Heelys fresh can be worn as plain shoes or the Heely / skate shoes. In this case, Frankie really wanted them to be in skate shoe form so we went ahead and added the wheels straight away. The wheels come separate from the shoe, however, adding and removing them as you require couldn’t be any easier. Once we added the wheels and laced up the shoes we were ready to go! It’s worth noting that you… View Post
