Two weeks today until Christmas Day! We are on countdown but do not fear you still have time to finish your shopping and there is no need to panic shop. No matter how late you leave it make sure you buy something personal rather than grabbing the first gift set you see in Boots. If you have a bit of spare time (chances are you haven't but you never know...) why not make something homemade to give as a gift. There is still time to order online too and if you have an Amazon Prime account chances are you can get it delivered tomorrow. Here's a roundup of my best last minute online Christmas gifts.

Hosted by Mickey and Minnie we will be taken on a tour of the globe meeting all our favourite Disney characters along the way - I'm bursting to tell the kids about our Christmas treat but we are keeping it a secret!!!

Fortunately, there are ways to buy truly personalized presents for everyone without having to spend a lot of time shopping.

It is now November, which means by law it’s time to start celebrating Christmas. Jokes aside, Christmas is fast approaching and we all want to be able to prepare for the festive season ahead.
As part of this you may be looking into buying a tree for the house, lighting it up like Blackpool illuminations, and be sending out cards and gifts through Shiply to family members you won’t see in time for the big day.
Now that you are ready to start Christmas shopping, you might be already working out your budgets and writing down some great ideas for presents for the family and friends. Just remember, you can still buy great gifts for a low price, and here are some ideas which will cost you less than a fiver.

As the weather transitions into gloomier, shorter, rain-laden days, we can say goodbye to many summer delicacies which gave your menu that lovely rainbow-like colour palette. Versatility is summer’s second name, but autumn can be a tricky time for maintaining a level of diet diversity.

After the week of scorching heat we can certainly say Summer has arrived! But while the sun brings fun but it also brings danger and protecting our family's skin is top of the agenda on sunny days. I've teamed up with Nivea Sun and Cancer Research UK to bring you some top sun safety tips and test out some family friendly suncreams to avoid tears and tantrums!
