Little Mashers Chalk + Talk Book Review

I am always on the look out for new things to keep the Little Lad entertained, crafts, books, baking! Anything to keep them away from the TV/iPad or just to give me a little peace and quiet for a short while. Both of the Little Lads love to draw so I jumped at the chance to review these new Little Mashers Chalk + Talk chalkboard books.

What to do with the family on the Isle of Wight - Part 2

Recently we visited the Isle of Wight and stayed in Yamouth at the stunning The West Bay County Club & Spa Club (read more about that HERE

The West Bay Clubs closest beach is Colwell Bay and only a short 5 minutes drive away, actually it seemed most beaches were only a short drive away. The Isle of Wight is only about 30 miles across which means no long car journeys trying to keep the kids entertained no matter where you decide to visit.

Ideal Home Show 2016 - A Day Out with My Sister

On Sunday I was invited to the Ideal Home Show by the lovely Sponsors Plumbs. Since finally buying our own home 18 months ago I'm obsessed with interior/home improvements and love to update our home by adding new pieces here and there.  I especially love giving old furniture a new lease of life. Plumbs do just that, specialist in re-upholstery. They can make that old arm chair that I just can't bear to part with fresh, up to date and new again.

Dolly Doodles Drawings

So you know in the mornings when you are suppose to be cleaning the house, sorting laundry and unpacking the dishwasher all before you have to collect your little from nursery before lunch. Then the postman comes and delivers you an exciting envelope and all that can wait?! Well that!

Instead of housework I just had to write this little post about my Dolly Doodles customised drawing!

The West Bay Country Club & Spa - Isle of Wight Review Part 1

Last weekend we went to Isle of Wight, we've never been before so we're super excited to go. We left home at the crack of dawn to get on our 9amWightlink ferry in Portsmouth, in all of our eagerness we actually arrived an hour early but luckily there were a few spaces left on the earlier departure and we were allowed to board that ferry instead.

Introducing Belle Amelie - Colourful Kids Clothes

Belle Amelie Rainbow t-shirt

 I am so excited to introduce you to Belle Amelie, colourful Retro/Scandinavian inspired handmade baby and kids clothes boutique.

Belle Amelie was created by the lovely Caroline who started designing and making her own clothes for her three kiddies. She was feeling frustrated with having to shop in the 'girls' or 'boys' departments, most of the clothes and prints at Belle Amelie are gender neutral, who says a little boy can't rock a rainbow or a little girl a space t-shirt! And I really love this about Belle Amelie.

I first saw Belle Amelie over on Instagram and was drawn to their super colourful and quirky t-shirt designs. This rainbow t-shirt is my absolute favourite, not only because I think Beaux looks super cute in it but because it reminds me of something I might have worn as a kid too.

Fleet Air Arm Museum - 5 Reasons to go with the Kids

We were invited to go to Fleet Air Arm Museum during the half term. We've never been before and as a family we try to go to at least one educational day out during school holidays. Although none of us are exactly Aircraft enthusiasts we were looking forward to going. Beaux especially but I think he thought we would be flying the planes!

 I was a little apprehensive that there would be enough there to keep The Littles entertained, but I didn't need to worry, here are 5 reasons Why you should take the kids to Fleet Air Arm Museum.

A Day at - Drayton Manor Thomas Land & Zoo

This weekend we were invited to Drayton Manor Theme Park to test out their new and improved Thomas Land.

Beaux was SO excited he told everyone he came into contact with that he was going and couldn't sleep the night before with excitement! We hadn't been before but I had shown him the website and explained to him what to expect.

He was so excited to be going to the zoo as he absolutely adores animal and couldn't wait to see the Tiger and 'Cheeky Gibbons'. He's also partial to a bit of Thomas the Tank Engine so couldn't wait to test out the rides too!
