BabyStyle Hybrid Stroller Launch

If you are not aware by now, most of you are!, i am currently pregnant with baby number 3. It has been a long time coming and me and Scott thought it would never happen,but it has and we are all thrilled!.

When the opportunity came up to attend the launch for the new Hybrid Pushchair by Babystyle at Baby Planet in Derby, i jumped at the chance.

I had a quick look online at the stroller itself and couldn't wait to have a push of it in person.

On arrival, we were greeted with a warm welcome and a glass of fizz,obviously non alcoholic,roll on due day!. There were plenty of refreshments, drinks and a lovely friendly atmosphere.

Now,the strollers, oh my!, They looked incredible,even better in real life. We had a demo from one of the lovely gentlemen and i have got to say it is amazing. It can be changed into a number of different strollers to suit you and your family, for example  the single pushchair can become a tandem if you have two little ones. 

You can also unhook the top component and apply a car seat or a carry cot, simply by clicking two flips either side, i was sold!. I have re named this stroller the transformer because it really is something out of this world.

The stroller comes in a few different colours,which are all stunning. My favourite have got to be the pistachio and wild orchard


I had a
 a lovely time at the launch and I can not wait to receive my pushchair and give you all a full review of my very own transformer! :)

Last Minute Christmas Gift

Christmas is only a week away now so not long left to finish the Christmas shopping. One present me and Scott get the girls every year is a board game. We enjoy board games after Christmas dinner and it is somewhat a tradition now of ours.

 Orchard Toys kindly sent the girls 'What a performance' : an action packed game of fun for all the family.

The front cover of the box at first glance looked very fun and we couldn't wait to get stuck in.

Suitable for ages 5 and up and 2x players. The board is so simple to put together,just like a jigsaw and in only four pieces.

 The aim of the game is to get to the finish line first, but it isn't as easy as that. Along the way you will pick up cards and be asked to perform a number of tasks including pretending to be a monkey or wiggle your ears.

If you are unable to act out your task then you will have to do the forfeit that is hidden on the back of the card. You will find the hidden forfeit by using the special decoder,which Alessia thought was  magic!

We have had so much fun playing this and think it will be a big hit around the Christmas table!

Thanks for reading

ToucanBox To The Rescue

When it comes to arts and crafts, we love nothing more than to spend the afternoon
or a rainy day at the table letting our imagination run wild.One
thing i am guilty of is forgetting to stock up the craft box and we have
had numerous occasions where the girls have been mid way through a project
and have needed something that we have ran out of!

ToucanBox is a perfect solution for us. The box arrives straight
 through your letter box, addressed to your little one, which Alessia
was amazing. Everything you will need to make the projects are included along
 with some information leaflets.

This box was Christmas themed so we got the chance to make some Christmas 
decorations for the tree
 and Alessia got a chance to practice her reindeer drawing with the help 
of the Christmas book provided.

We have had a lovely afternoon reviewing this subscription box and give it a 10/10.
 For the chance to receive your first box for free,  click on the link below 

Dont forget to let me know whats inside your box!

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.

 To enter the competition, click on the link below and we will keep our fingers crossed for you all.

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 :)
