Review: Tailwind Nutrition UK for London Marathon Fuelling

Before I begin I just want to clarify that I wasn’t paid to write this review. I bought the products mentioned in this blog post with my own money, and decided to write my own review. On Sunday 28th April 2019 I will be completing the London Marathon for Wellchild, the national charity for sick children. It will be my first marathon and naturally I’ve found that I have a lot to learn! I’ve previously completed the Cardiff Half Marathon twice, but knowing that I’m going to have to double that distance for London is pretty daunting. I usually use… [Read More]

Review: Afternoon Tea at Octavo’s Book Cafe & Wine Bar

Last Wednesday was my birthday. I really wanted to do something different from what I usually do so when I saw a Groupon offer back in October for Afternoon Tea in Octavo’s Book Cafe & Wine Bar, I thought it would be a lovely way to spend my birthday. Octavo’s Book Cafe & Wine Bar is in Cardiff Bay on West Bute Street. It’s situated in a former coaching inn, the oldest building (1939) in what used to be called Tiger Bay.  Octavo’s offers a wide range of books that are available to buy, alongside good food and drink such… [Read More]

Festive Fun at Mecca Bingo #AD

On Friday night my sister and I were kindly invited to Mecca Bingo in Swansea to enjoy a night of festive bingo. The last time we went was back in May when we went along for their Bonkers Bingo night. You can read all about that here. On our last visit we were given our books and dabbers to mark off our numbers. This time, however, we were given the option to use an electronic board, and I have to say they’re amazing! Fans of the traditional book and dabber pen need not worry as you can still use these… [Read More]

Review: Hiding Space Westgate Apartments, Bath

My friends and I recently spent a weekend in Bath to visit the Bath Christmas Market. We had an absolutely amazing time. I really enjoyed exploring all of the different chalets and seeing what was for sale. It was also incredible listening to the street music and just taking the atmosphere in. The smell of mulled wine and chestnuts roasting just added to the atmosphere! I would definitely recommend a visit! Anyway, this post isn’t about the Christmas market! You can read all about that in my post here.  Whilst in Bath we stayed in the Hiding Space Westgate Apartments…. [Read More]

Neveo Family Journal Review

Photographs are very important to me. I try to capture as many natural photos of my family as I can. I then like to display them in a frame or photo album.  So many people take photographs on their mobile phones, but they often get forgotten about which means they’re never seen again or shown to anyone. I think this is such a shame. After all, photographs are meant to be shared, and that’s why I think Neveo is a wonderful idea. Neveo is a monthly newsletter that you can create and send to your family. Primarily aimed at grandparents… [Read More]

Thermae Bath Spa Review

On the last weekend of November my friends and I spent the weekend in Bath. We booked earlier in the year with the intention of exploring the Bath Christmas Market. You can read all about the Bath Christmas Market on my blog here. A few days before we went, my friends sent me a message asking if I’d like to go to the Thermae Bath Spa during our weekend away. Of course I jumped at the chance and said yes! The Thermae Bath Spa is an award-winning day spa, combining the ‘old and new’/ There are two historic spa buildings, The… [Read More]

Bath Christmas Market 2018

Last weekend, myself and a few friends spent the weekend in Bath. We booked to go early in the year so that we could explore the Christmas markets, and we weren’t disappointed. This was my first trip to Bath and I have to say that it’s such a beautiful place. I really can’t wait to go back there again. The Bath Christmas Market started on the 22nd November and the last day is the 9th December. It’s a shame that it’s not on a little longer, but if you do get the chance to go before it finishes, I highly… [Read More]

Review: Playmobil Children’s Playground

When I look back at my childhood, I always have this one memory of my sister and I playing with a children’s playground set. I can’t remember what make it was, but I do remember we had so much fun playing with it. Quite often when my girls and I go shopping they like to look at the toys, and Playmobil is one brand they’re always drawn towards. We’ve never owned any Playmobil toys before so when Smyths Toys kindly sent us a Playmobil Children’s Playground to review I was keen to see what it was like, as were our twin… [Read More]

PJ Masks Mission Control HQ Playset Review

PJ Masks is an animated TV series which follows three main characters, Catboy, Owlette and Gekko, as they become a superhero team at night fall to fight bad guys, Romeo, Luna Girl and Night Ninja. Our twin girls are six years old and they really enjoy watching PJ Masks on TV. That’s why I thought they’d love this playset! I think that the PJ Masks Mission Control HQ Playset is the perfect toy for PJ Masks fans. The PJ Masks Mission Control HQ Playset is available from Smyths online here for £49.99, as well as other good toy stores and amazon…. [Read More]

Review: Santa Safari at West Midland Safari Park

One of the most anticipated events in the year for us is our annual trip to West Midland Safari Park. We first went in September 2017. You can read all about our first trip here. We then returned in November 2017 for their Santa Safari which you can read about here, and then we were lucky enough to return again earlier this year for their Ice Age Exhibition which you can read about here. Last Saturday we returned again for their Santa Safari. The Santa Safari is a magical festive day out for all the family. It combines a 4-mile… [Read More]
