JORD Wooden Watch Review and Giveaway

JORD Wooden Watch

Over the last few years I’ve become used to wearing a fitness tracker instead of a watch. I have to be honest though, although my fitness tracker tells me the time it isn’t exactly fashionable! When JORD Watches contacted me a little while ago and asked if I’d like to review one of their watches, I was pretty keen! I chose to review the Frankie 35 watch in Zebrawood and Champagne. Available for $179 USD, which is around £141, this watch is definitely fashionable! For starters it comes in a beautiful wooden box which is great for storing your watch… [Read More]

New Home, New Garden, New Furniture!

If you’ve been following me on twitter or if you’ve been reading my blog lately then you probably know that we moved into our new home last week. Our previous landlord decided it was time to sell up, which meant that it was time for us to move on and find a new home.

It seems that the reason behind our recent move was to enable our family to have a better home and with… [Read More]

Bigjigs Village Shop and Accessories Review

If you’ve been following me on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram then you’ll probably know by now that for Christmas we bought our twins the Bigjigs Village Shop, along with some of the accessories to go with it.   I’m a huge fan of Bigjigs! I love all of their products, because they’re always fantastic quality, good value for money and they’re so simple with no batteries required, which is great because it really helps toddlers to play and use their imaginations.  I thought I’d write a review of the Bigjigs Village Shop along with some of the items that we bought to… [Read More]

Wooden Fairy Cake Stand & Cakes and Wooden Fairy Biscuit Review

Wooden toys have been around since before I was even born. They’re durable, easy to clean and great fun for children to play with. We were recently sent a Fairy Wooden Cake Stand & Cakes and Fairy Wooden Biscuits to review from Lucy Locket.  Last year we bought our girls a play kitchen and they still play with it pretty much every day. They love pretending to cook and wash up the dishes! This year we’ve bought them a wooden play shop and these fairy cakes and biscuits will go so well with it! We can sit the cake stand on the counter next to the till… [Read More]

Personalised, hand painted wooden name blocks It was like Christmas in our house today!
