• 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

    Fathers Day Gift Guide 2020

    Fathers day 2020 is once again upon us, and with this year being the unusual time to celebrate I thought I would share with you some wonderful fun things to give to your dad, or perhaps get the children to give to their dad for the special day. I need to start this post with funny stories and share with you what I often do for fathers day, very similar with mothers day, I forget it. My dads birthday is in the same month as fathers day so more often than not I’m so preoccupied with what to get him for his birthday that before I know it Fathers Day has bypassed me and im in a rush at to what to get him. WELL not this year that’s for sure, I am prepared and ready to spoil him rotten for both of these days. While due to COVID19 he is currently at home isolating as he unfortunately is part of the high risk category, he not long before lockdown occurred had a heart operation and has a certain heart issue called Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy and therefor needs to stay safe and while I did briefly get to see him at the weekend… View Post

    AD // Printsfield Personalised Socks // Review

    I think I’ve mentioned many many times before that I am in fact a crazy cat lady, my boys Loki the mainecoon and Atlas the domestic short hair have featured on my blog for a little while now, they’ve had their own custom beds and fancy Swedish style nap places, along with yummy snacks that come right through the letterbox. But it got me thinking, that I do not have anything for myself with the boys on and this is where Printsfield comes in, they are a company that specialises in comedic brightly coloured and of course completely customised socks with your pets faces on them, and even your own faces. They kindly offered me the chance to order my own socks and share with you my experiences with them. The socks themselves are really good quality, I have worn them all around the house and even outside when I take my rubbish out to the bins, they truly hold up to the day to day stresses that feet can be put through. Started in 2018 by Jakub and Mykhailo, who’s main goal when starting up this customisable sock making business was to put the fun back into the world based… View Post

    AD // The Pet Empire / District 70 // Review

    I think that I have stated many times before that I am a cat mum, a proud cat mum that’s for sure, so one day I was contacted by The Pet Empire to explore and share some of their amazing products that they host, from stunning cat pets and accessories to luxury dog beds and other items too such as feeding bowls, toys and carriers. District 70 is designed with luxury and comfort in mind and as our pets tend to spend a lot of their time, 70% in fact in their beds the company decided to go with the name as their beds are their own District too. what I love the most about their products is purely down to the fact that they’re so stylish in they home, gone are the days of gaudy beds and cat trees taking up living space, these lovely beds fit nicely into every day homes and create comfort and style for your pets. I have to admit that I am a little obsessed with the Scandinavian style that the pet I chose has and goes beautifully with a rug I got from la redoute which also boasts stylish pieces of homeware. Loki my Mainecoon… View Post
