• AD // Love Snacking with The British Snack Company. // Review

    Snacking in my house is a big thing, I mean who doesn’t like snacks?! With the British Snack Company comes some wonderful tasty treats to enjoy with your lunch or just taking with you to eat out and about, the one thing which stands out about the British snack company is that it is made from British potatoes and British based tastes and flavours, started in 2013 with a goal to produce and share amazing snacks at good prices and that’s what they have done. Having been so kindly gifted some samples of their lovely treats and snacks I got the chance to try some and let me tell you, I was pleasantly surprised! The crisps remind me a little bit of Kettle crisps with their flavour and smell so they seem to be a more of an adult type of snack rather than for the gentler tastes of a child as I did hand the packets over to my children who very much turned their noses up at them but I can safely say that I very much enjoyed their flavour. Trying the cheese and onion crisps and the salty and sweet popcorn first I really enjoyed them and… View Post

    Selfie Bag’s New Design // Review

    A little while ago I got the opportunity to review the amazing Selfie Bag from the Cotton Bag Co. This bag has been used daily for food shops, walks to the park and even been handy for carrying toys around the house from one room to another. When I saw that the designers of the bag had been working hard to bring out a brand new bag I of course was excited to get the chance again to share with you another beautiful and wonderful bag, this time around the bag is crammed full of fun things to bring your selfie to life and even help with phone camera photography in general! I simply adore the new design, its a lot more casual than the previous bags design with that its a natural shade of canvas bag with acrylic style paintings on rather than the gold, its incredibly eye catching (see what I did there?) and much like the previous Selfie Bag is extremely useful and is once again used every single day for shopping. The design differences between the two bags is that this newer one has a zip to protect your possessions inside it. it is also slightly… View Post

    Mud & Bloom July 2020 Box // Review

    Given that it is now summer holidays in England, and seeing Mud and Bloom advertised everywhere on my social medias I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to try out this fun and interactive box designed for children in mind. Mud and Bloom was set up in December 2017 by a wonderful woman named Anja, who believed that all children, despite where they live should dive into the world of gardening and caring for plants and I have to agree, growing up in the countryside myself I have always been around farmers, big gardens, allotments and mud so I have always wanted to get my three children involved into the same sort of childhood I had and that I felt they always have missed out on this sort of thing being stuck in a two bedroom flat in a town. The boxes come through your letterbox every month with four crafty or gardening things to do that are easy for children, ranging from planting flowers and vegetables to using the garden and its flowers to make some lovely artwork or home crafts. July’s box is no exception with some seeds to grow some flowers and lettuce. Each task has… View Post

    Growing our own Butterflies with InsectLore // Review

    Who doesn’t like butterflies? I know that my children do and after seeing Insectlore advertised all over my facebook in my homeschooling groups, the choice was made to order and try it out for our own enjoyment. Insect Lore is a wonderful company that supplies home schoolers and even actual schools with a fun butterfly garden pack that includes live caterpillars, a place to keep the butterflies when they hatch, due to the sheer popularity of Insect Lore when you place an order you have to select a set time in which you will be receiving your kit, I ordered mine to be delivered at the end of May and ill be honest, I sort of forgot about it all until it arrived at my front door. Coming in such a lovely box with all the instructions on how to feed and care for your butterflies which I found perfect for children to look over and read I couldn’t fault this company or their care of their insects and products. The caterpillars come in a small plastic tub which contains the food in which they eat during their growth period which took roughly a week for them to become bigger… View Post
