Dora And Sponge Bob Ice Cream!

Florence loves the TV channel Nickelodeon and it’s sister station Nick Jr. Just like most children her age I would guess, she has some pretty favourite characters and Dora The Explorer is definitely one of them! She’s also been introduced to Sponge Bob Square Pants at some point and although I think she’s not terribly into the programme yet she certainly likes the character and calls him ‘Sponge Bob Poo Pants’ which she thinks is utterly hilarious! We were very […]

Yaya Lala And Other Beautiful Things!

A couple of weeks ago I wrote about my beautiful friend Adriana’s new business Yaya Lala. Adriana is a fashion designer and her business sells shoes she has designed and had hand made by professional Artisans in Brazil. They are truly beautiful shoes! Yaya Lala is not just about Adriana’s amazing designs though, she also sells other people’s beautifully made products and is very selective with her tasteful eye as to what should be on her site. There are lots […]

Villagio Restaurant!

I’ve been taking on the task of reviewing restaurants recently, it’s a tough job but someone’s got to do it I suppose! I’ve mostly had delightful meals which have been very enjoyable and last night I was invited to review another one. Another Italian restaurant no less and as I’ve been to an exceptional one recently, it crossed my mind as to how this one would compare? Making my way to Villagio in Hammersmith, another chain restaurant albeit a small one, […]

Boredom Busting Summer With Sainsbury’s!

We were very kindly invited to a summer celebration by Sainsbury’s yesterday and trotted off into town for an afternoon garden party of fun activities! The afternoon was hosted by Nickelodeon presenters Anna Williamson and Jamie Rickers – exciting! The purpose of the afternoon and all the fun was to highlight that Sainsbury’s have a new book out called the Sainsbury’s Bumper Book Of Summer! Filled with ideas and jam packed with budget busters for entertaining the little ones over […]

WIN Tickets To The Foodies Festival ‘FEAST’ At Battersea Park!

Back in June we went to the Foodies Festival with some friends and it was a brilliant day out. We had such a good time at the festival trying out new foods, going to workshops for both adults and children and also just basking in the sunshine with a glass of fizz listening to bands while the children had a dance! It was such a good day and on August 16th, 17th and 18th when it’s back with ‘FEAST’ at […]

How To Have A Jungle Breakfast – #SaveSummer!

It’s summer holidays time and that only means one thing! Bring on the fun! With six whole weeks at home, it is up to us as parents to build entertainment for our little ones! Days out and entertaining children can be super expensive though so as well as the odd trip out to a theme park for a treat we need to do some brilliant things at home too! We’re taking part in the Asda #SaveSummer challenge! This means that every week […]

Pleasurewood Hills Again!

I used to visit Pleasurewood Hills as a child. It was the only theme park that was near enough for me to feasibly go to as a youngster and for me, back then, it was wonderful! People my age who grew up in Norfolk and Suffolk (where the park is) would almost certainly have also been as a child and have similar memories to my own; flying down the death slide and probably skimming some skin off on the way, […]

Frankie And Benny’s Specials Menu!

A long time ago Jonny and I visited a Frankie and Benny’s restaurant when at an airport. It was not a pleasant experience and we vowed never to go back. Years later and having read some great blogger’s reviews I thought perhaps it was time we gave it another whirl. So, when I was asked if I would like £30 towards a meal from the new specials menu I said yes please and we’ve looked forward to giving it a […]

Dress-Up Tatty Teddy!

A couple of weeks ago I wrote about a lovely Christmas Toy bash we were invited to where we got to check out what’s hot for 2013! There was one toy that Florence couldn’t leave alone and she just kept having to go back to see again! The toy was Dress-Up Tatty Teddy and Florence pushed her round in a buggy and cuddled her for pretty much the whole party! She even had to make a special trip back upstairs […]

HMS Belfast, Dazzle And Camouflage!

Last week I wrote about our fabulous trip to the Imperial War Museum, London and how we’d had such fun checking out their new ‘Horrible Histories: Spies’ exhibition exclusively before anyone else! We had a great day and were very excited to be invited along to HMS Belfast, which is part of the Imperial War Museum, the next day! Now I wasn’t sure about taking two small children aboard a large ship and I wondered if they might find it […]
