Review: Protecting My MacBook Pro With Speck

I have owned my MacBook Pro for over 4 years now and though I am careful there are situations that you just can’t control. We use our laptops for everything and I mean everything. They come with us while we travel, they are our TV and they are used heavily for us to make an income. Cora has had a case on hers for some time but I haven’t and I have had a few too many near misses. I love my Maxine (the name for my MacBook) and I really don’t want to have to replace her anytime soon. Thankfully Speck got in touch and offered to help me protect my laptop.

Chicco Oh la la Stroller Review

Honestly I can tell I’m not yet a mum, I don’t get excited about a brand new stroller or look for a new one for fun. My sister Laura on the other hand often stroller shops, she oggles at other peoples strollers and gets jealous. In a matter of weeks we were due to fly to Fuerteventura with both kids in tow, Matilda still needed a mode of transport for naps and long walks. This was making Laura feel a little anxious as her current stroller was bulky, heavy and not practical for travel. This is when Chicco got in touch asking if we would like to review their Oh la la Lightweight stroller…Of course we said yes! And this… View Post

In The Night Garden Live Show Review

I remember the days of looking after my nephew Frankie, who is now 6, and watching In The Night Garden. We now have a new fan of the show in the family, Matilda. She is 2 this year and loves her friends Iggle Piggle and Oopsy Daisy. She has a couple of figures as well as soft toys at home that enjoy bath time and playing in the garden. We were lucky enough to be invited to watch the live show at Trafford Centre at the start of August. It was decided it would be an early birthday present for Matilda and I can honestly say it was the best idea Cora ever had. We bundled up the kids in… View Post

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

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

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

6 Ways To Help You Sleep Naturally

There is nothing that we love more than sleep, well maybe food but you see my point. I will be 100% honest without a good nights sleep I am such a moody person. I can be difficult, grumpy and I get emotional, it’s not good and not fair on Cora at all! So here are a few things I use to get a good night sleep. 1. Shower/Bath If you have the option to take a shower or a bath I would. Especially after a busy or stressful day I find that taking the time to shower really helps my muscles and mind relax ready for bed. The thought of feeling fresh and clean can really calm the mind and… View Post
