Have Yourself A merry Little #WillowsChristmas!

Along with a gaggle of blogging families including, one of my faves, Carolynne from Mummy Endeavours, my Mum, the children and I headed off to Willows Farm in St Albans last weekend to feast our eyes on their Santa’s Spectacular. Now Hertfordshire is a fair old way from us now we’re in Norfolk, a 2 hour drive minimum but… We used to go there a lot when we lived in London and we love it so we knew it would be […]

Lalaloopsy Babies Potty Surprise Jewel Sparkle Doll – Review!

Florence is a bit of a fan of Lalaloopsy and when I asked her if she wanted to review the ‘Potty Surprise Jewel Sparkle’ doll from the babies range it was an emphatic yes. She has expressed her interest in the Lalaloopsy babies, in particular one with a nappy or a potty, for quite some time so I guess I shouldn’t have expected anything less. It’s interesting that she is just as much into these dolls now as she was […]

Have You Got A Wicked Uncle – A Brilliant Way To Buy Gifts!

I think we all remember having at least one relative who would buy us something very random every birthday and Christmas? Sometimes something inappropriately aged (my husband’s best mate bought Jimmy a Nerf Gun for his 2nd birthday which he LOVED but… Being an 8+ toy it probably was coming to me to get shot in the eye at close range when I let him play with it). And othertimes, as well meaning as the present buying is in the […]

Rescue Emergency Set From Brio – Review!

I’ve waxed lyrical on the blog about how much we love Brio. Jimmy gets more and more into the building and creating a story and it continued to eb a massively impressive toy for all of us. I could talk about how long lasting the quality is (I still have a set at my Mum’s for the children top play with which was mine when I was small’ and I could tell you that it really is lovely to watch […]

Bloggers Behaving Badly!

Social influencing. What is that? Are we only entitled to consider ourselves such if we have sixty thousand followers on Instagram, a similar amount on Twitter and stats to throw us through the roof of every chart going? Hmm, no, I don’t think so. To me, a social influencer is just that. Someone who influences others socially. Now this can be on a grand scale and probably how we ‘most’ consider it to be… Someone who walks on star dust […]

Cheese And Fizz From Morrisons – Pizza Cup Recipe!

I love a touch of fizz for Christmas (or any other time of the year to be fair) and think it really adds a touch of sparkle to a festive party. Can you imagine a Chrimbo get together without bubbles? No, me either and some of the best, I always feel, are Prosecco and Cava. A less expensive alternative to Champagne but seriously, in lots of cases no less quality. I think Cava is closest in taste to Champers but I […]

THE BEATLES: EIGHT DAYS A WEEK – THE TOURING YEARS has its Home Entertainment release today and is available on digital download, Blu-ray and DVD (with special 2 disc editions in both formats). Now, my husband is a MASSIVE Beatles fan, they are one of the bands who inspired him the most to be a musician and in fact, the very first time I realised I quite fancied him was actually when I saw him singing ‘Come Together’ in a pub […]

Rocknrollerbaby’s Guide To A High Street Christmas For 2016!

Back in July I made my annual pilgrimage around the Christmas press shows of London and although I talked a little about it back then, I’ve been saving all of my favourite things, from the feasting to the fiesta-ing until now… I know it’s only early November but I’ve waited as long as I could and there’s already been Christmas rumblings on Instagram so… I just had to throw Christmas out there and get my very best of the season into the […]

Spring/Summer 2017 At Crocs!

So I have a friend who ONLY wears Crocs. She says she’d never wear any other footwear because they look good and they are SO comfy. This summer when I started Instagramming pictures of my new summery Crocs and saying things like ‘Crocs have come a long way since the clog, who knew?!’ she was very cross with me and told me that SHE knew, had known for ages and HAD been telling me… I clearly hadn’t listened but with […]
