We recently purchased a lovely Victorian terrace house. Unfortunately, however, this lovely Victorian terrace house was a repossession and has been left, stood, exposed to the elements and with little repairs for years. As a result, there’s mould, damp and everything in-between… I figured this was the perfect time to talk about dehumidifiers. As a result of our “new” home issues we’ve ventured into the world of dehumidifiers and buying the right one for your home or room is not as… View Post

10 Classic Books Every Child Should Read Growing Up

Though I don’t do it often, I love to read. To me, there is nothing more that really pushes the boundaries of your imagination than reading. Reading the way a scene is and how it feels is a great way to expand someone’s imagination. I loved to read as a child and can remember to this day many books I loved reading over and over again.

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

Celebrating Oral Health On World Smile Day

We were sent this a great range of Oral healthcare items in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts, opinions and photographs are our own.  It’s world smile day on October 5th 2018, an event I probably wouldn’t usually think too much about.

Spend £3,500 on getting your teeth straightened to improve your confidence and believe me, you’ll think… View Post
