Ed Sheeran: Made in Suffolk Review

3 images which contain - 1. Ed Sheeran puppet. 2. Photograph of the back of Ed Sheeran looking at the castle on the hill. 3. Man and woman looking at one of the exhibits in the Ed Sheeran: Made in Suffolk exhibition.

We recently visited the Ed Sheeran: Made in Suffolk exhibition which is in Christchurch mansion. This is a free exhibition but you do need to book free tickets to attend to avoid overcrowding. Opening dates for the display The exhibition is smaller than I thought it would be but it was still very interesting to see a glimpse into Ed’s journey from a young child to world wide superstar! Personally, I am not the biggest Ed Sheeran fan (I do[Read more]

Flash speed mop review

Flash speed mop - boxed

I have been reviewing the Flash speed mop over the last week. I was sent the mop from Savvy Circle for the purpose of viewing it. All thoughts and opinions are my own. None of my floors in the whole of our downstairs have carpet, so I have to sweep and mop rather than hoover all of the time. We have three dogs who run around with mucky paws and my 11-year-old can be just as bad! The mop has[Read more]

Foxes Farm Corn Maze Review

Man pushing pram through a corn maze

We took a trip to Foxes Farm, Aldham to have a go in their corn maze and see their pumpkin patch. We were gifted the entry to the maze but all thoughts and opinions are my own. This was the first time that we had ever visited Foxes farm but it was easy to find and had loads of parking available. It is £1 to park and you pay when you leave the farm.  We were blessed with beautiful weather[Read more]

Win with the Sock Shop

Mens black bamboo socks and ladies pink bamboo socks from sock shop

Summertime can be hard on our feet when we have to wear socks and the heat is high! I hate having hot feet and a number of foot skin conditions can occur when your feet sweat a great deal. When the lovely people from the Sock Shop offered me the chance to try out some of their socks, I jumped at the chance as I knew that they sell bamboo socks.  The sock shop The sock shop was founded in[Read more]

Harry Putter golf – Felixstowe

We decided to visit Harry Putter crazy golf in Felixstowe as we were studying Harry Potter as part of our home school. We had heard that it was supposed to be based on Harry Potter, hence the name! The golf is a 13 hole indoor course at the back of Charles Mannings amusements on the sea front. The golf is priced at £3 a person which is pretty reasonable as other crazy golf courses we’ve seen have been charging triple[Read more]

Sea Life Adventure

As part of our under the sea home school study we decided to visit Southend Sea Life Adventure aquarium. We purchased our tickets online as you get a discount that way. It cost us £34.85 for two adults and a child. When you enter you can get your hand stamped so that you can come and go as you please throughout the day. Inside the sea life centre as you would expect, there are lots of interesting sea life creatures.[Read more]

Ipswich comic-con

Ipswich Comic-con On Sunday 30th June we attended our first ever comic-con and it was conveniently located  in our home town. Over the last year, Faith has really gotten into anime and cos play so when she asked to go to comic-con I was not surprised. We purchased our tickets in advance as that allowed entry an hour before the doors opened to the pay on the gate crowds. We had no idea what to expect or how busy it[Read more]

Organising your holiday packing #AD

Holiday packing in two suitcases

Holiday Packing Going on holiday or for mini breaks are fabulous but packing my luggage is not so fabulous for me! I hate chucking everything into one case as you know that when you get to your destination and open your case, it will look like a bomb exploded in your suitcase. This is especially true for holidays which involve checking your suitcases into airports! Luggage organisers When I was kindly gifted a set of luggage organisers from Beautify I[Read more]

Lucky Fortune Competition (gifted)

A lucky Fortune toy

You may have seen on my Instagram last week that we were kindly gifted some of the new lucky fortune collectibles. These are really cute and I wish that they had made something like this when I was a girl! The most exciting collectibles we had when I was growing up was carebear stickers which you stuck inside a book! Each lucky fortune is shaped like a fortune cookie. You open the ‘cookie’ and inside, you will find a paper[Read more]

Wingz review #AD

Wingz - sleeves which you can add to clothes

I was gifted a set of black stretch wingz in return for an honest review. For those of you who have not heard of Wingz before, they are sleeves which you can wear under tops or dresses which have no sleeves. There are many different styles, but what I especially like with the black stretch wingz, is how versatile they are. They can be worn with so many different tops and dresses. Why? You may be thinking why would you need to[Read more]
