Wheres Wally | Review & Competition

For as long as i can remember Wheres Wally has always been a favourite of mine, spending hours looking for him in the books at primary school.As i have grown and had a family of my own, we have all enjoyed sitting round the table at the library finding the little guy.

The children got a chance to review the latest editions to the Wheres Wally books as well as the the new colouring book!. I have got to say i was a little excited about this too.

We received the new activity books which are Wheres Wally At Sea, Wheres Wally Across Lands,Wheres Wally Takes Flight and Wheres Wally Outer Space. We also received the colouring book which is jam packed with colouring pages,a big thumbs up.

The girls have been having so much fun with these books.We have spent hours over the weekend colouring in. Alessia has loved getting her colouring pens out with a book of her choice after dinner. 
She has also picked out the outer space activity book for her friends birthday present as she says its 'awesome'. 

Kadiann loves colouring and we find it quite therapeutic. She has set herself the challenge of completing one of the colouring pages,which i must admit,do look quite a challenge!


We have been given the chance to give away 5x copies of the Wheres Wally Colouring Books to our readers.

Just Bee Drinks | Review

One thing i hate drinking on its own is water. I think that is why i don't tend to get through the daily amount required each day and seems to end up feeling like a chore to do!.

Since i decided to change my eating lifestyle in May and losing over a stone a half, my most important goals were to food optimise and to keep hydrated.

Just Bee Drinks supply a light and refreshing honey water drink, made with spring water and a drop of honey,literally one drop!.No refined sugars or artificial sweeteners and under 50 calories per carton,if you are on Slimming World that is only 2.5 syns! :)

 They kindly sent me their Just Bee Gift Box, which has one carton of each flavour they do which are blueberry, lemon and green tea and apple and ginger.

Having tried all three flavours i have got to say my absolute favourite is the apple and ginger,it was the blueberry but i have been converted.

 The gift box retails at £4.99 which i think is very affordable.We also got a pack of wild flower seed to plant in the empty carton,which i thought was a brilliant idea,not only as a family garden project but also to help save the bees.

We will planting ours next year and will definitely show you our results.

Thank you so much to Just Bee for allowing us to sample your drinks, a big thumbs up from this household :)

Organix Punk'd Oaty Bars

I always worry that the children are hungry when being at school, so snack time after morning break puts me at ease. The school has a bowl with a selection of fresh fruit and vegetables but you can also bring in your own snack.This is something the girls love to do and enjoy going through the snack box each morning before school run.

I stock the box up mainly with cereal and granola bars, trying to pick the better and healthiest options when choosing. 

Organix has recently launched an oaty bar aimed at older children called Punk'd and the girls were lucky enough to try them. I popped them in the snack box and kept my fingers crossed.

They come in two different flavours, cocoa and orange crash and strawberry and vanilla smash and are the perfect size for a child's treat.

They are an absolute hit with the girls. There favourite flavour is the cocoa and orange and i have since purchased two more boxes of that flavour for the snack box. A big thumbs up from us Organix!

*We were sent two boxes of these oaty bars in exchange for an honest review*

Kiddylicious Snacks

If your children are anything like my two daughters then snack time is a recurring thing in our household.They never seem to be full and are always asking for snacks. We never run out of fresh fruit and veggie sticks in our house but i like to keep some snacks as healthy treat.

Kiddylicious kindly sent the girls a box of snacks to try out which were the fruity puffs,the smoothie melts and the crunchy snacks.With these snacks you are getting 100% pure fruit, sugar that occurs naturally in the fruits and veggies and flavoured with natural fruit,which sounds brilliant for a child's snack.

I have got to say the girls were surprisingly impressed. At first they thought they weren't going to like any of them,especially Kadiann, but i have got to say Kadiann likes them just as much as Alessia!.

They are a perfect after school snack and also great for taking on picnics and days out.They range from 7Months+ so are a great healthy finger food snack for babies too!, even mummy eats them!.

Go check them out and let me know what you think? the banana puffs are our favourite :)


I miss the beach

One thing i miss about living in Norfolk is being so close to the beach.Whenever we visit my parents this is something i try to do as much as possible. It seems to be one of them things that you take for granted and really miss once you no longer have it.

We have had an amazing beach day.We made a big picnic and literally spent all day down Hemsby beach,which isn't to far from Great Yarmouth. It was a glorious day and was absolutely packed with people on holiday,which gives you that lovely seaside feeling. We really fitted in,with our own wind breakers and deck chairs,perfect!.

The girls went in the sea,as did i,Alessia has become much more confident with water since our holiday to Turkey, and Kadiann  had such good fun swimming in the sea.

Being at the beach, you lose track of time,being with family and enjoying the sea air, the sand in between your toes,time just flies.For me it's almost like you need to capture the memories in a bottle,and the sand if your as mad as me!.

Crazy Cafe | Review

So one thing we all love to do in this household is play board games. We have got the biggest collection of board games i have ever seen, and i must admit, i am pretty impressed.When we was contacted by tactic to review the crazy cafe game, i obviously agreed,another one to add to our collection!.

The aim of the game is very straight forward,don't drop the dishes!. You spin the wheel and are given a few choices to land on.You either place an item on the table,stack items on top of others or have to pull at the table cloth and hope everything stays put.

The children thought it was hilarious and kept hoping to land on 'pull'. Kadiann managed to pull the table cloth and left everything standing perfectly on a few occasions, smarty pants!.

We spent most of the afternoon perfecting our skills, very addictive and both the girls didn't get bored or fed up,which is always a bonus.On a scale of 10, the girls both rate this game 7/10.

Would highly recommend!. Would you drop your dishes?.

Our New Fridge Freezer!! | AO Review

If you are the type of person that loves a bargain when food shopping and bulk buys on the special offers then you will understand my excitement!.

We was sent an american fridge freezer from AO to review. The one we picked was the Fridgemaster MS91518FFB in black. We initially picked the american style one as we was forever running out of space in both the fridge and freezer compartments and could never stock up on the special deals.

I am sold!, i have got to say i love it, the best fridge freezer we have ever had. I love the fact that it rapid freezes and is frost freeze,so gone are the days of defrosting. The different shelves on the freezer door are perfect for hiding mummy and daddy's ice creams, and the lower shelves able the children to be independent and fetch their own lollies,which might back fire at some point!.

The temperature control on the fridge is perfect for keeping your food at the right temperature, leaving it not to cold to eat,which always happened in our last one. No clutter as there is so much space. The touch screen feature on the door is brilliant, letting you know how long the door has been opened by alarm , so fancy!.
