Today I have a fantastic giveaway for you to win tickets to Santa's Storytime at Devon's Crealy. We recently visited Crealy for the first time and I have to say I was very impressed with what they had to offer. We went for their Fireworks spectacular which you can read all about here. We are going back to Crealy to meet Santa in a few weeks and as you can probably imagine my two are very excited about that! Our review of our visit will follow shortly.

This Christmas I didn't want to do my usual last minute panic bulk buying present shopping;  I wanted to find gifts that I thought our friends and family would really appreciate and had a more personal touch. This is where Snapfish comes in. They have a great website where you can create personalised stocking stuffers which are perfect for a unique yet personal Christmas gift.

If you want to buy a new car but you have a low credit score, you probably think that guaranteed car finance is the answer.

A quick type of 'guaranteed car finance' into Google brings up page upon page of brokers and dealers promising to accept all finance applications, regardless of your circumstances. Guaranteed car finance is described as a hassle-free, quick and easy solution to obtaining finance. Sounds perfect right?

Well it's not quite true.

Having a Clear Out!

This major clear out that I'm currently undertaking is taking much longer than I anticipated. It would be going a lot faster if I was just throwing everything away but I really don't want to do that! A lot of it is still good stuff that could be used again by someone else. I literally cannot bear the thought of something going into the bin that could be reused. Dam you eco conscious side of my brain! I have now ramped it up a gear or two as I really want the clear out to be completed before Christmas as we have about 14 guests staying with us. No pressure! ...continue reading

How we shop has drastically changed over the years, there was a time when you’d purchase everything you needed in your local high street. Shopping then would be considered a full day out, stopping in at the butchers, the bakers and the greengrocers. These days things have changed, we have a lot more options of where we can buy the things we need. Businesses are constantly fighting to have cheaper prices over their competitors so that you buy their products instead.

*Warning this post contains words like muff fluff, periods, fanjo, cloth pads and blood! If you are uncomfortable with that then might I suggest you read something else*

I'm currently in the process of switching from disposable sanitary pads to reusable ones. If you scroll to the bottom of this post you'll find links to my experiences so far. As I got on so well testing my first reusable night time pad I decided to try some daytime pads as well.

This year we were lucky enough to be invited as VIP's to Devon's Crealy for their fireworks spectacular. For anyone that doesn't know Crealy is an award winning family amusement park with lots of rides and indoor soft play places.

I personally have never been to Crealy before so I was keen to see what was there. On first impressions I was very impressed with the place. It immediately reminded me of Disneyland in Florida as it was so clean and fresh looking.

We have recently been lucky enough to work with Saltrock Clothing. They are a British surfwear company based near to us in Devon although they post to all over the country.

We've never tried Saltrock clothing before so I was intrigued to find out what they had to offer.

When I was younger I never really got the whole British obsession with tea. Even throughout my uni years my peers seemed to live off the stuff and I just still didn't get it! That was until I went to a new university to start my Masters. It was in short a hippy university and they had the most fantastic selection of herbal, fruit and green teas you have every seen! Now there was something that I could get into with all of the different flavours, scents and no milk involved.  I was instantly hooked.

My tea obsession has sort of evolved from there and I'm constantly on the lookout for new products to try, so when I got an email from Adagio Teas to see if I would like to try their Teas I was only too happy to oblige. ...continue reading

A few weeks ago I was invited up to The Avon George Hotel in Bristol to have lunch with Sarah Willingham from Dragon's Den and find out about her and Experian's new app called Jangle.
