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!.

If you are interested in watching our full video review then i have linked it down below

All Things Crafty Subscription Box

This month we got the chance to review a crafty box by ChiChi-World. ChiChi World, all things crafty, is a monthly subscription box packed full of different art and craft products.

 It is delivered straight to your door and has a different theme each month.This month's theme was insects and creepy crawlies. 

There are so many different projects, all individually placed in different coloured bags, which i found so convenient and easy for your children to pick a project and start it, without having to find all the bits and instructions.

In the box is also extra added craft tools that you will need throughout all the projects such as scissors,colours and glue.Which is an added bonus if you are constantly running out of glue and can never find the 50 pairs of scissors your children own,yes that is me!.

We have had so much fun with this box and still have a few projects left. For only £7.99 a month, it's a bargain box that can be shared with more than one child and even us parents!. I would highly recommend.

Thanks for reading.

Mindfun Tees

When people mention colouring in, you automatically think of a child colouring in or a children's colouring book.More recently the adult colouring book has come on the market alongside therapy through art and colouring in. 

Mindfun T-shirts are designed to calm the mind, replace negative thoughts and create a state of peace. Designed for both children and grown ups,they come in such a wide variety of designs. I chose the mandala,which is one of my favourite designs to colour in. 

The pack comes with the t-shirt, six fabric colouring pens and the information/instructions card.This also doubles up as the protector for in between your t-shirt,which stops any pen transferring onto the other side,which does happen if you do not use the card!. The felts have quite a thick point so was a little difficult to get into the tiny spaces,so would recommend an option to opt for thinner felts if you have a fiddly design.

To complete the t-shirt after colouring is super simple.Iron the back of the print and wash it on the recommended setting. All done, ready to wear.

I loved this project, it really did clear my mind of all the thoughts going 60mph,i sat and coloured for hours whilst listening to music.I would highly recommend these and my two daughters can not wait for me to order them one each.

Party Bags And Supplies

I had the chance to review a party kit from the company Party bags and supplies. As Alessia's birthday is next month, i thought it was perfect timing and agreed straight away.

There are various kits available ranging from younger ones who love peppa pig,graduations, zebra print designs for teenagers to hen do's and baby showers,the selection is endless and there is something for everybody. 

Alessia chose the Owl Pal design pack,which is for 8 people, very cute, pink and purple pastel colour theme.When we received the package i was actually surprised at the content and the quality of the items.

 Each party set contains:

8 Plates
8 Cups
8 Napkins
1 Table cover
8  Pre filled party bags

The pre filled party bags are a god send to any busy parent that,like me, ends up rushing around at the last minute trying to find bits to fill the party bags with.

These party bags are filled with:

A pastel star beaded bracelet
Rainbow drop sweets( which were my favourite as a child! )
An owl headband
A party blower
                                               a money off voucher for a party bag set!

 With these bags, there is no need to worry,knowing you have your child's birthday party all ready to go,stored in a box is fantastic!, i would highly recommended.
