April is whizzing by so time to catch up with what I'm watching on TV (and at the cinema!) at the moment. Last month I introduced movies I have enjoyed over the past few weeks so check out my thoughts on the new Dumbo movie which hit the big screen last week.
Little E turned 8 last month and there was only one thing she wanted to do for her birthday: Go Ape.
We have a Go Ape centre close to us at Tilgate Park, Crawley and the Tree Top Junior course is suitable for children over 1 metre tall. E had chosen two of her school friends, two cousins and her little sister to join her on the course. For every two under 6yr olds one adult is required to participate. As Little I had just turned 5 Husband volunteered to join in the fun. You have to pay for parking at Tilgate Park so make sure you have change and allow plenty of time to find a space as it can be very busy at the weekends and during school holidays.
To say Husband was a little excited when Jacamo asked if he'd like to review some clothes from their range would be an understatement! Here's what he thought of the online men's fashion retailer...
There are some wardrobe staples I enjoy wearing all year round, a comfy jumper, smart but slightly lairy shirts and a pair of smart casual shoes. I’m always looking for something different and fashion which subtly stands out from the crowd. Jacamo have a great selection of clothing, shoes and accessories and with sizes ranging from small through to 5XL they have clothes for larger men, smaller blokes and everyone in between.
This bumper issue of What I'm Watching... gives you the low down on all the TV shows I've been hooked on over the past few weeks. And as we've been watching loads of movies lately I've decided to include some film recommendations for the first time! Whoop whoop! So grab a notepad and buckle up...
The Gargoyle’s nameless narrator is a porn star and cocaine addict who crashes his car into a ravine while high to avoid a shower of hallucinatory arrows he sees coming towards him. The accident leaves him fighting for his life in a hospital burns unit where he meets Marianne Engel, a sculptor and psychiatric patient who believe she and our narrator were lovers in the 14th century. And so begins the story of an enduring romance which defies time, pain and death.
The day of romance is nearly upon us. Husband and I don't make grand gestures on Valentine's Day but we do buy each other a little gift, and what better than a personal present. I have teamed up with Amazon Handmade to bring you a selection handmade Valentine's gifts perfect to hit the right note with your loved one.
As a busy working Mum I can pretty safely say there are two things which my life revolves around (alongside the demands of the 2 kids) - the cleaning and laundry. I only have to blink and there is toothpaste smeared over the bathroom tiles and I think someone is secretly living in the loft and filling up all the washing baskets daily. It is simply never ending.
Enter ACE. Now you will no doubt has some laundry and cleaning products stashed under the sink and you probably think they do a decent job. Read my review below and you'll think again... plus there is a chance to win some ACE goodies for yourself at the end of the post!
Back to reality these past few weeks and I've realised I never shared with you the TV shows I was watching over December! We'll blame the Christmas madness for the oversight and make this a bumper edition of box set treats.
It's the beginning of a new year which means time to focus on how 2019 can be an even healthier year plus review what is and isn't working in your beauty regime. I've put together a roundup of the latest New Year, New You products on the market to help make this year your best ever!
Over Christmas we like to take the girls up to London for a special family day out. Last year we went to see Disney on Ice at the O2 which was great fun. This Christmas we were invited to review KidZania London at Westfield which had the girls hopping about with excitement! KidZania is an indoor city for kids aged 4-14yrs which blends together reality, learning and entertainment. During your 4hr visit kids can try out different role play professions from over 60 activities, testing their skills and having fun. Here's what we thought of the city run by kids...
