Helping my kids breath easy, with Colief

There is nothing worse than when our children get a cold; and as any Parent would, we wish we could take it from them, am I right? I remember most of the times my children have had a cold – thankfully they have my immune system and it’s not that often. Maybe once a year *touches wood*, but helping them get through the day is nothing compared to getting them {and you} through the night.  I was very kindly sent some Breathe easy Patches from Colief and they could not have come at a better time, because my youngest, Annabelle…

Combining colouring in & virtual reality with Mardles DiscovAR | Review

Who would have thought, that in 2018, our children could colour in a super fun picture and have it come to life? Like, actually come to life, with the help of virtual and augmented reality. I was kindly sent a Mardles DiscovAR pack which is where you can bring, whatever you colour in, to life.  This is such a nifty idea, so huge hats off to Sharon & James, the creators for coming up with this pretty awesome idea. You download the Mardles app, for free, and in the bundle we received, we got a 4D colouring-in book along with some…

3 ways to soothe Chickenpox | ViraSoothe Spray Gel

Chickenpox is horrible and it can spread through an entire class of children in no time at all. When my son Jacob brought it home from preschool one day – like some sort of stealth gift – it spread through our home, like wildfire! None of us had ever had it before and my youngest, Annabelle, was only 8weeks old at the time, too.  Out of the five of us, my Husband and the baby got it the worst. It turns out, 75% of Jacobs preschool class was off with Chickenpox, too. It’s so contagious and even when it hasn’t…

Our bedtime routine with Moshi Twilight Sleep Stories app | Review

After a crazy busy day – which is most days in our house. Wind down time is by far, my favourite part of the day. Everyone has nice filled bellies from dinner, we’ve all had a little chill time. Now it’s time to get ready for bed. I don’t ask my children to bath every night, because it’s just not necessary. However, having a good bedtime routine in the evenings is {in my opinion} very important. I think I have mentioned this somewhere else on my blog, but due to have three children at home, at different ages, our bedtime…

Football Games Table from Chad Valley | Review

Football isn’t a sport that I am a particular fan of, but it is something I was raised with. Most of my family support Manchester United, and there are one or two within the family who support, Liverpool. You can imagine the atmosphere when those teams play against each other! It’s much like how my children get on when they play against one another. They were recently sent out a Football Games Table from Chad Valley to enjoy and it’s been a godsend on those rainy afternoons.  This particular football table is perfect for the little ones in the family…

Garden fun with the Little Tikes Builders Bay sand & water table | Review

We have had, what has felt like, the longest Winter imaginable. But then, as if by magic, we had a few days of glorious sunshine – even here in Northern Ireland! So naturally, when the sun comes out we tend to live outside rather than inside. Which is amazing! We have had so much fun in our garden and even more so since we were sent out the Builder’s Bay Sand & Water table from Little Tikes.  Once it arrived, I think I underestimated how big it was going to be. But that was OK because I am a total…

Chubby Unicorns need love too! | Review

I have always had a thing for Unicorns. They are beautiful, majestic, and yes…they’re a mythical beast – but that doesn’t stop them from being cool. They have a certain aura about them that makes us believe in fairies, hope and pixie dust.  Sure, a Unicorn is just an upgraded horse {in a matter of speaking} but they are so much more than that. The first Unicorn I ever saw was from the cartoon, Rainbow Brite – do you remember it? I loved that show! Her Unicorn Sprite was my first love and now it’s amazing to watch my own…

Protecting little eyes during screen time with anti blue-light glasses | Review

Last year, I was online searching for gift ideas for my Husband’s up & coming birthday. He can be a tough guy to buy for, but I recall seeing these PC glasses, which essentially had amber tinted lens. I had never heard much about them if I’m honest but I thought to myself “Perfect” because he is studying to be a computer programmer {he’s mid-degree} and he also works from home on his PC all day. So these anti-blue light glasses would be perfect. It turns out, they were! For weeks he had been complaining of headaches and sore eyes,…

Bluebell the Horse Trunki – Ride On suitcase | Review {& giveaway!}

When Annabelle was little, we had the pleasure of working with Trunki on a toddlepak and a paddlepak review. So, we are fans of the Trunki range. However, we have never owned a Trunki ride-on suitcase. So when they got back in touch, offering Annabelle a Trunki of her choice to review, we were very excited.  If you have ever seen the Trunki ride-on suitcase range for yourself, you’ll know there is a wide and very fun range to choose from. And as soon as Annabelle clocked eyes on Bluebell the Horse Trunki, it was love at first sight. With…
