Review: Pokemon Islands Guardians GX Box

We were lucky enough to pick up one of the fantastic Pokemon Island Guardians GX boxes on offer recently. It’s rare we pick up boxes that contain more than simply just cards, however, we fell in love with the amazing artwork on these promos and simply had to give this box a try. So first things first and one of the major selling points of this premium collection GX Box is the playmat. This playmat is filled with all four… View Post

November 2018 – What We Watched This Month

I can’t believe we’re just a month away from Christmas. As we mentioned last month, the nights are closing in which in some senses should mean we’re watching more TV cosying up by the fire. However, in actual fact we’ve been frantically trying to buy gifts for family and friends, visiting London for the SHOMOs and selling and buying houses so in actual fact the list is no more extensive than usual. Adults The Sinner The Sinner is currently available… View Post

The 2018 Advent Calendar Saga

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve probably heard that Helen and I have been causing a bit of a storm over on Youtube. Spending more than £1,000 of our own hard earned cash on advent calendars. This started when we publicly criticised an influencer for taking advantage of her subscribers by selling them her used PR products and telling multiple lies over the course of multiple videos. Unhappy with the way these subscribers had been treated and determined… View Post

October 2018 – What We Watched This Month

With the start of October came the decline of the weather and of course those early dark nights creeping in. One of the best times of year to watch all your favourite scary movies and really get into the cosy season. Helen loves this time of year as the trees turn a beautiful red and orange and Starbucks hot chocolate tastes all that much better. This month it feels we haven’t had 2 minutes to properly sit and watch much but… View Post
