Sea Life Adventure

A lion fish

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]

Happy planning

Those who regularly read my blog will probably know that I do love to plan and I love stationery! About three years ago I discovered the Happy Planner range by MAMBI which is an American company. They are now more available in the UK as to when I first found them which is good. I fell in love with their planners and stickers which you use with the planners so I thought that I would share my love for the[Read more]

A family day out at Chessington theme park

Chessington theme park and the zoo is a great family day out as there is so much to see and do, enough for more than a day, I wish that we had gone for two days.                    There are a good variety of rides which cater to younger children, all the way up to the brave thrill seekers! The park is divided into different themed areas and everything is very well signposted.[Read more]
