Stagecoach Theatre Arts: Gracie's First Performance

Friday, April 29, 2016

Back in January, Gracie started her first term at Stagecoach Theatre Arts. Back when she started, I wrote a post about what we were hoping to get out of the experience. The main aim was to boost her confidence and find something she would really enjoy. She has recently finished the first term and her and her new friends put on a performance of 'Happy Hat Land' for us parents to see their progress.


Review: Silentnight Anti-Snore Pillows

Review: Brantano; Clarks Tustin Talent Shoes

Thursday, April 21, 2016

I have a slight shoe obsession. They are one of my biggest weaknesses. Brantano sell shoes for all the family from a range of different brands. I was sent these Clarks Tustin Talent shoes in dark tan from Brantano to review. This 70's inspired shoe has pretty cut out detailing and stand out stitching to give a vintage look.


Review: Woolovers Cashmere/Merino Poncho

Wednesday, April 20, 2016

A few weeks back, I was sent a lovely Women's Poncho/shrug from Woolovers. The poncho/shrug is a 30% cashmere, 70% merino wool blend. This means that unlike many wool products, it can be thrown in the washing machine without loosing shape or shrinking.

Review: Thomas & Friends Trackmaster Close Call Cliff

Thursday, April 14, 2016

We love Thomas & Friends in this house and when we were offered the chance to review the latest Thomas & Friends Trackmaster train set, Close Call Cliff, I knew it would be a huge hit. We have a few Thomas & Friends Trackmaster trains and sets already and each one is totally different and exciting. I love that you can fit them all together or modify it to suit you, the kids love using their imagination to create new adventures for Thomas & his friends.


My Favourite Items From Our New Kitchen

Thursday, April 07, 2016

I have been waiting a while to write this up. We started our kitchen renovation in November, doing all the work ourselves between working and everything else. After saving for a few years so that we could have things exactly how we wanted, we have treated ourselves to so many cool kitchen appliances and accessories. I was planning to wait until I had finished the whole room before posting about it, but there is still so much to do! Hopefully I will be able to show you all soon but for now, here are some of my favourite items from our new kitchen;

Gracie is a My Little Pony super-fan! She probably knows everything there is to know about My Little Pony and the Equestria Girls spin-off. She absolutely loves her My Little Pony toys too. Hasbro have a huge range of My Little Pony toys and merchandise and they kindly sent us Pinkie Pie's Sweet Shoppe play set for Gracie to try out.
