Review – Fantastic Services oven cleaning

I have to confess that oven cleaning is one of those jobs that I constantly put off doing.  I’ll wash the grill pan, wipe the hob over and give the front of the oven a quick clean, but cleaning the oven properly – well, it just doesn’t happen as often as it should.  The trouble was, that I’d been putting it off so long that my oven really was quite disgusting and I knew I really needed to just grit my teeth and get on with it.  Thankfully, that moment happened to coincide with an email from Fantastic Services inviting me to review one of their services, which included oven cleaning.  The opportunity to have someone else do my least-favourite chore for me was not one I was about to turn down.… Read more

CaseApp custom phone case and laptop skin – review and giveaway

One of the best presents my hubby ever bought me was a personalised case for my iPhone.  It was our first Christmas as a family of four and the case was printed with a photo of the four of us, taken when Sophie was just a week old.  A happy moment captured and remembered every time I picked up my phone.  Sadly, two-and-a-half years on, the photo has become very faded.  I had been thinking about getting a new case when I was contacted by CaseApp inviting me to review a custom case/skin for my phone and laptop – the perfect opportunity to replace my tired-looking case with a new one featuring an updated photo.… Read more

Review - Amazing Pages personalised children's books - Little Hearts, Big Love

Review – Amazing Pages personalised children’s books

Both my girls love books and having stories read to them. We have a few personalised books which are amongst Jessica’s favourites – she loves seeing the cartoonised versions of herself in the stories and they are often requested by her at bedtime. The latest book in her collection of personalised books is one from Amazing Pages – the story of Jessica and the Shy Mermaid, which featured a photo of Jessica in the illustrations instead of a cartoon version.… Read more

Review - The Night Before Christmas (Parragon Books) - Little Hearts, Big Love

Review: The Night Before Christmas

“’Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house

Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse…”

Just hearing those first two lines of Clement C. Moore’s classic poem “The Night Before Christmas” takes me back to my childhood and the excitement of going to bed on Christmas Eve and believing that Father Christmas would be visiting that night.… Read more

Review and giveaway: Miffy book collection from The Book People

I love introducing my two girls to collections of books that I enjoyed as a child and The Book People is one of my favourite bookseller sites for finding various collections at affordable prices. We have previously bought the full collections of Mr Men, Little Miss and Beatrix Potter books through their website although there was one classic character from my early childhood that I had yet to fully introduce the girls to – Miffy the rabbit.… Read more
