Lalaloopsy Crumbs Sugar Cookie Doll | Review

It has been a funny old half term. The kids have had a week and three days off, and the majority of them have been pretty horrible weather – between storms and grey days, there has been a lot of indoor time and Netfix watching. Along with MC2 which I mentioned that Izzie loved, she is also very into Lalaloopsy. She loved the characters, and was excited to find out that Netflix have now released a new range of large dolls based on the series. Izzie actually owns some Lalaloopsy baby dolls, but they are totally made of plastic and…

Bunny Jump Game | REVIEW

We are fans of a good ‘board’ game in this house – extra points if its a game that can be enjoyed by the whole family. Having children that range from age 2 and a half to 7 and a half, this can be a pretty big ask. We were very excited to receive Bunny Jump to try out. It is actually suitable from age 5 upwards but Mason was actually quite happy playing it with a bit of help from his older siblings.  The official tag line of the game is ‘Safely sitting on top of his burrow, the…

Project MC² Experiment Doll | REVIEW

Does anyone else with a seven year old ever feel like they have a mini teenager? Izzie is giving me some good glimpses of what the future holds – she’s obsessed with doing her hair, and what she wears already – although she does still let me pick her clothes for the most part. Most recently she has been utterly obsessed with the Netflix show MC2 – a show about a group of teenage girls who work for a female government organisation who are trying to protect the world. The series is very ‘geek chic’ – the girls all have…

TIPS FOR TACKLING NAUSEA DURING PREGNANCY | A COLLABORATION WITH SIMPLY SUPPLEMENTS

*This is a collaborative post with Simply Supplements I know what you are thinking… she’s not pregnant? No I’m not (you can stop panicking now Ell). However during all my pregnancies, I suffered with the most horrendous morning sickness. I say morning sickness, I’m not sure who came up with that name – most likely someone who had never suffered from it. My sickness was all day and into the evenings – sometimes I would even wake up in the night feeling nauseous. It was always my first symptom of pregnancy too – I would start feeling nauseous before I’d…

Personalised Phone Cover from Go Customized | Review

I was recently asked to create a personalised phone case from Go Customized. They have a huge range on their websites for all different types of pohone from Apple to Samsung to HTC. It may be having young children, it may be the job that I do, but I love taking photos. Our house isn’t huge and so I struggle finding room to display my favourite ones. My phone is never far from my hand and I would quite honestly be lost without it. Therefore keeping it in one piece is important. I’ve had various phone cases in the past…

Messy Me Review | Gorgeous Oilcloth Products for Children

The one thing that the Little Brushneen’s are always good at is getting messy. Honestly, by 3pm you would think that I’d sent them down a mine rather than to school each day. We are huge fans of messy play and craft – well I say we, the kids mainly. I enjoy it when it’s happening, and love that the kids enjoy it but then hate the mess and washing of the clothes afterwards. I have at points genuinely thought of taking out shares in stain removers as we go through so many. As Izzie and Ollie have got older…
