School Uniform At Matalan!

There’s a vast amount of school uniform to choose from on the high street at the moment and although it’s fabulous to have so many items at affordable prices, having so much of it also makes the decision of knowing what to buy and from where that much harder. Do you go for the more expensive brands that perhaps have the best reputation? They do say buy cheap buy twice after all? Or do you go for the cheapest available because […]

Bratz Are Back!

Last week I was invited to an exclusive event at the Sanderson Hotel in Central London to celebrate the re-launch of a brand of dolls we are already rather fond of! The Bratz! They’re back and they’re better than ever! The newly transformed Bratz collection has been re-designed to fit the fashions and styles of every girl. Let’s face it, fashion dolls seem to have traditionally been blonde and of a certain type but everyone is different so how can everyone […]

Hello Summer At Willows Farm!

We often go to Willows Farm and we love it. It’s the perfect mix of being a traditional farm with a twist of fun on the side! Rides, play equipment, soft play, theatre shows and more but all done in a really old-fashioned way. There are fair ground rides but none of them are garishly playing loud music with flashing lights, they are traditional and nestled in amongst them are hand push swing boats, trampolines and bouncy castles. It’s a […]

Crisp New Sheets!

Is there anything better when getting into bed than brand new, straight from the packet bed sheets? I’m pretty sure everyone feels the same. I was talking to a friend about this very thing just last week and we both agreed, there’s something wholly wonderful about a night’s sleep in brand new bedding. My friend told me she buys tons of bedding because she just can’t resist that feeling and then has to hide it all from her husband so that […]

Strawberry Meringue Cupcakes!

I had a little experiment in the week which I thought turned out rather nicely. I DID slightly overcook everything because my oven is new and I’m not used to how hot it gets yet but despite everything being a little darker than intended my Strawberry Baked Alaska Cupcakes were a bit of a hit! So, this is how I made my cupcakes filled with ice cream, fresh strawberries and topped with gooey, chewy meringue. Cupcake Ingredients: 4 oz Caster […]
