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

Review: Lonely Planet Kids – Cardboard Box Creations

Frankie recently won his first ever competition thanks to Toppsta. We’ve been encouraging Frankie to enter competitions with the aim of understanding that effort = reward, so it was a real delight to see our efforts finally pay off. The prize that Frankie won was a copy of the newly released Lonely Planet Kids Book – Cardboard Creations. Since the start of the school year little Frankies reading has come on leaps and bounds and at age 6, this book was perfect… View Post

Review: Portable North Pole – A Surprise Call From Santa!

The mobile application and website Portable North Pole is a prime example of why I love the evolution of technology. With just a couple of clicks of a mouse, you can help Santa gather all the information he needs to create a super personalised video message or phone call. Currently, you can get one personalised message from Santa completely free. However, I’d suggest upgrading your account to either the Magic Pass or the Ultimate Pass to make the most of… 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

Review: O’keeffe’s Working Hands & Healthy Feet

Playing video games, typing up articles, filming videos, sorting Lego,  packing boxes. These are just a couple of the tasks my hands take-on on a daily basis. Which is why I was so grateful to O’keeffe’s when they got in touch and offered to help. Created by the pharmacist Tara O’Keeffe almost three decades ago now. The solution for O’keeffe’s hand cream came when Tara was looking for a solution to help her diabetic father with his dry and cracked… View Post

Review: Squeezamals – Squishy, Squeezey, Squeezamals!

If I know one thing, it’s that there are two things kids love right now; Squishies and Unicorns. Luckily, there’s a brand that has combined the two! These are Squeezamals; There are a whole host of different animals in Squeezamals form, however, we’re Unicorn lovers in The Harrison Household so we were super excited to try this one out! The Unicorn Squeezamal below is an 18-inch edition, although you can get smaller if you prefer! We love the minimalist packaging… View Post

A Great Gift For Someone Who Has Everything… Ancestry Adventure With Living DNA

Christmas is fast approaching, and once again Helen and I are struggling as to what to buy the people in our lives who have everything… our parents. We asked around, and it turns out were not the only ones with this problem, with many of our friends saying that for once they’d actually like to really, truly surprise that person with something they don’t have that’s more than just a beer gift set or a couple of pairs of novelty… View Post
