As a parent blogger, I am usually approached to review toys for one of the children. Now that’s all well and good but what about us bigger kids, eh?! We like to have fun too! Well, luckily for us, Wicked Uncle asked my biggest kid (yep, the hubby) to review some of their products from their brand new range, Big Kidz.

As an ex-shoe shop manager, I have a thing about shoes. For starters, I love them! I have always owned far too many (much to the husband’s dismay) and I have always been drawn to great quality over cheap, throwaway items and gorgeous designs will get me every time. So, when my first child, Jake, began to walk it was inevitable that I would want well-fitting shoes, which would protect his feet, allow for growth and last. I am an advocate of good foot health and ensuring that your child’s feet are well-looked after from day one which is why he has never been put in anything that may jeopardise this.

Weaning has begun in our household and it’s messy! My first child, Jake, was a fusspot from day one. He only liked pureed food, he would even turn his nose up at some of those flavours and he was a choker… sigh, how does a baby choke on puree?! William, however, has proved he is the complete opposite from day one. He showed us he wanted food and he has certainly made it clear that pureed is ok but proper food is brilliant! He chomps away on anything and so far hasn’t shown any dislike for tastes or textures. The only downside is the extra mess I’ve been experiencing all over the floor, highchair and on him! So, when Messy Me asked me to review a splash mat and bib, it couldn’t have come at a better time. Continue reading “Messy Me Splash Mat and Bib Review”
Getting out and about is one of the things we love to do as a family. Jake has always been energetic and never one for staying still so we have had to discover plenty of ways to keep him both physically and mentally busy. As with all children, Jake goes through phases of what he likes but right now he is very much into anything with army print and involves role-playing. Having already heard of Wicked Uncle and knowing how vast their range of children’s toys is, I was very happy to be asked to review some items of my choice.

Gardening for me has become a hobby that I love and with each year that we live here, I am even more determined to perfect ours. Unfortunately, our gardening tools are starting to fail us and we’ve been living with a secondhand lawnmower that has the handle taped together in a desperate attempt to save it for a little longer and a grass trimmer that gave up the ghost years ago– leaving me to trim all the border edges with garden scissors… yep, its a tedious job but the perfectionist in me just cannot leave it! Continue reading “Review: VonHaus Lawnmower and Grass Trimmer from Domu”
I am a clean freak, I can happily admit this although since having children I’ve had to let things slide a little… ok, a lot more. I now find cleaning to be a task that has to be planned, that takes the whole week and that has to be pretty quick. Long gone are the days where I spent an entire day cleaning my home from top to bottom and even though I don’t miss spending my days doing this I do miss how clean my home was each week. Continue reading “Review: Shark DuoClean Vs Dyson V6”
Having a treat for myself these days is a rarity. I am currently in the throws of that newborn haze and am so sleep-deprived that sugar has become my go-to food source… on an hourly basis! So, when Lisa from Petite Pops asked me to review her cake pops there was no way I could refuse.
Lisa began her new venture after baking cake pops Continue reading “Review: Petite Pops Cakes”
