Our 2018 Bucket List – Update #2

At the start of the year, we set ourself a bucket list. A list of things we’d like to achieve over the course of the year. In most cases, this list was for enjoyment’s sake. Fun things we’ve wanted to do that we’ve been putting off (no time, no money etc.) We’ve chosen to update this list every 4 months, and today is the second update. You can read the first here. I’ve crossed off the things that we’re actually managing to achieve and maintain, the rest, unfortunately, are yet to be achieved. With four months left, can we do it? Go Away Once A Month I’m writing this from Japan, so I guess that’s September done right? We’ve nothing… View Post

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

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

Summer Travel Essentials

Have you booked your family summer holiday yet? Over the Easter holidays, many of us turn our attention to the next major school holiday, where we plan to spend two weeks of sun-drenched (at least one hopes!) bliss away from the stress of it all. However, holidaying with the family isn’t always easy and just one wrong turn can lead to a nightmare of illnesses that can easily ruin that relaxing holiday you’ve dreamed about so much. For that reason, I’ve put together a list of our travel essentials… Hübner’s Silicea Gastro Intestinal Gel We love trying new foods while travelling abroad, however with that can often come some side-effects. Hübner’s Silicea Gastro Intestinal Gel is designed to help soothe the symptoms… View Post

Boppy Total Body Pillow By Chicco – Review

It’s been little more than two weeks since my sister Amy announced she’s pregnant with her second child, and already she’s complaining about her lack of sleep. In fact, in the most recent discussion, she burst out crying at the frustration of it all – pregnancy has well and truly hit! So, when Chicco got in touch to congratulate us they invited us to try the Boppy Total Body Pillow. The whole family cheered in delight at the thought that Amy might finally get a good nights sleep! The Boppy pillow comes in this large, see-through carry bag with a handle. The packaging on the outside of the pillow as you can see demonstrates the ways in which the pillow… View Post

Using Center Parcs As a Hen Party Destination

I know for many people when they think of Hen parties they think of Magaluf, Blackpool or just an extremely drunken night out. Well, this weekend I had the absolute pleasure of spending the weekend with my friends at Center Parcs. We spent 3 nights at Longleat Center Parcs in 2 villas and loved every minute. If you are planning a party away of any kind here is why you should use Longleat Forest Center Parcs as your base. What Is Center Parcs? Center Parcs is a woodland village holiday park in the UK. There are 5 sites in total and are based on outdoor activities, places to relax and a self-catering accommodation. The park allows cars to unload and… View Post

In 1931 Thomas Smith Gave Us… Sudocrem

Not many brands have such a rich heritage in both the world and The Harrison Household specifically. However, Sudocrem certainly does! I mean seriously, in the 80’s and 90’s did you even have a first aid cupboard or draw without a tub of Sudocrem in it? Which is why when Sudocrem themselves (well the PR team behind the brand) got in touch and asked if we’d like to review both the Care & Protect and Skin Care Cream we rejoiced. Sudocrem Care & Protect Shortly after celebrating 80 years on the market, Sudocrem launched care & protect. This unique formula of Sudocrem has been designed specifically to help prevent nappy rash. The cream works in three ways; It starts by creating a… View Post

What Happened When My Nephew Realised I’m A Lesbian

If you don’t already know, I have a nephew. He is 5 going on 6, very intelligent young man and very funny. When Frankie was born, I was home every weekend from uni possible to see him, we would spend hours, days together. Growing up I knew everything about him, favourite food, what tv shows he liked, friends he had, future goals. I would snuggle him on the sofa with In The Night Garden to get him to sleep and he would (unfortunately) play with my hair. While we are away for chunks at a time travelling, we make up for it when we are home and spend as much time as possible with the kids. Frankie’s latest trend is… View Post
