Now I've got to wrap up the last present and catch up on some Christmassy TV! Merry Christmas! See you in 2018!


My Favourite Christmas Adverts 2017

I always look forward to the Christmas adverts, as I'm sure many people do - as that means Christmas is on its way. And Christmas is very much on its way! The Coca-Cola & the John Lewis are classic ones to watch out for, but every year it seems new & exciting adverts are topping them! I wanted to write a quick last post of the year and share my favourite Christmas adverts for 2017!

Ideas To Help You Prolong The Festive Spirit

The Christmas Tag!

I do love a good tag post! It's a great way to get writing and helps you to get to know each other a little. So what better way to get into the festive spirit than doing a Christmas themed tag! I'm 99% sure this will be my last post of the year, as I'm closing up shop and taking some time off for Christmas! It might be nice to actually spend some time with The Husband in the evenings! Haha. All the panicking and worrying has calmed down a bit. I've got one more present to wrap and then that's it! I can sit back, relax, make some Christmas crafts with my little ones and patiently await the big day! Thank you very much Mummascribbles for the tag, and I hope you enjoy reading! Merry Christmas!

Wingz - Add Sleeves To Anything! {Review}

If I'm honest, I've always hated how my arms look. Well not always but especially since my little ones were born. When I put on weight, it goes straight to my arms and my stomach. That's why I was so excited to be given the opportunity to review Wingz.

DIY Make Your Own Bird Feeders Kit

Every year I aim to make a homemade gift for my family members. As my siblings get older, I'm finding it harder to come up with ideas of what to create.

Portable North Pole App {Review}

My little girlie has really started embracing the Christmas magic this year and getting all excited about every tiny little thing. (She recently said to me "This is going to be the best Christmas ever!")! We try to do lots of magical things for the little ones to help them get into the Christmas spirit. One thing we used a lot last year, (although neither of them understood that much) and we've already used this year is Portable North Pole! Portable North Pole is an app that helps you to create personalised videos and phone calls for your little ones, featuring Father Christmas and his Elves.

Encouraging Your Little Ones To Get Planting {Celebrating National Tree Week}

My little ones love spending time outdoors. They will play in the garden during all weathers, we go for regular walks & even go on nature hunts now and then. One thing I'd really like to start introducing them to is gardening. Don't get me wrong, they've planted a few seeds here and there, dug up a potato or two and watered the plants - but they've never really experienced the joy of gardening. Gardening can be a great family activity, and it's the perfect way to encourage your little ones to appreciate the wonderful nature all around them.

I was recently given the chance to review a gorgeous Christmas Planner from Freddie & Co - and it's everything you'd want in a planner for Christmas, not to mention, it's so beautiful!

Celebrating Advent With Scholastic Books!

I've always loved the idea of a 'Book Advent Calendar'. It's such a sweet concept, and a brilliant way to encourage little ones to love reading. Not to mention building up their collection of lovely, perhaps Christmas themed books. What has put me off from doing it in the past is the cost and the issue of picking 24 different, age appropriate books!
