    Saying Goodbye to our Pumpkins // Parenting

    Last year we didn’t get around to doing this, I had seen it everywhere on my facebook of taking the old pumpkins and popping them down in the woods for the creatures to come and eat them. I however handed them over to my mum who took them for her garden. This year I couldn’t pass the chance to do it ourselves, limited to the location in which we could put them we decided that the little woods near our play park would be best fit and of course giving the children a chance to play on the swings after we dropped them off. The RSPCA shares that pumpkins are good for all the local wildlife in England, given that this time of year when the weather turns cold and all the fruit is slowly falling out of the apple trees, its always best to use what you can for wildlife. according to the RSPCA badgers, foxes, squirrels and birds all very much enjoy pumpkins and other fruits similar (yes its a fruit) and also The Woodland Trust shares that our mini beasts enjoy the fruity insides as well. In a day of age where the number one thing on… View Post

    Happy Howlidays // The Pet Advent Calendar from Scrumbles // Review

    If you have been around here on my blog long enough you will know that I tend not to mention the ‘C’ word until perhaps mid December, but this year, given that we’ve spent the majority of it inside our homes and stressed, I decided to change that up a bit and introduce you to Scrumbles and their wonderful pet advent calendar. We’ve all heard of the makeup advent, chocolate ones and even a gin one but I had no idea you could even get ones for your pets and Scrumbles comes through with good quality pet food which is made in the UK. The story of Scrumbles started out, funnily enough, with a cat and her smelly poo, which is a charming thing to talk about in a post about Christmas, but as a responsible pet owner it is always important to take proper care in what goes into our furry friends as it will inevitably come back out again. Their desire to settle poor Boo’s tummy and doing research to learn that pet food these days isn’t as healthy as it lets on, Scrumbles was created with their delightful hypoallergenic pet food for both dog and cat, also… View Post

    Making our own Bath Bombs with So Bomb DIY // Review

    Last Christmas Amelia got this amazing and fun craft box from a friend of mine called So Bomb DIY we’ve been putting it off for months but finally decided to dive in and attempt them. So Bomb DIY is essentially a bath bomb factory that you put together yourself, decorate and then begin to make your own bath bombs, and seeing that bath bombs are a massive popular hit in my house, if you’ve seen my Lush hauls then you should know I buy and use an excessive amount of them, so making our own felt like a natural progression. Opening up the box you’ll find pretty much everything you’ll need besides some water which you can get from the tap, in the box you can make three different bombs in a collection of pretty colours, the mixture to help activate it when its in the bath, pipette for the water, mould, various decorations and little charms you can put inside the bomb itself and the mixer. Putting it all together was pretty simple and easy, Amelia knew exactly what to do and made sure everything was in the right place and stored correctly, it wasn’t complicated but very plastic feeling… View Post

    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

    Adventures to Paradise Wildlife Park // Days Out

    A few weeks ago after trying to figure out what to do in the final week of the summer holidays, I decided to take the children to a local wildlife park. Not big on zoo’s personally but I was thinking of days out and fun things the children would love to do, so Paradise Wildlife Park was where we went. Paradise Wildlife Park is a large zoo situated in the Hertfordshire countryside, its history doesn’t have the best record as when it first opened it had poor animal care and was considered one of the worst zoos in England and you all know my views on Big Cat and wildlife care when it comes to their homes but over the course of the years they have continued to change, develop and become a much better home for all the creatures they have in their care and also have stopped breeding their white lions which is a huge step in the right direction. Going with my mum, we left after lunch and made our way to Paradise Wildlife Park, being a little worried as the weather wasn’t exactly on our side and it was extremely windy as there was a storm… View Post
