Last-minute Christmas shopping with B&M Stores

I can’t believe that there are just a few more shopping days until Christmas Day. Christmas does have a habit of creeping up on you quickly. And if you’re like me, then over the next few days you’ll need to be doing some last-minute Christmas shopping. If that is the case then you really should head to your local B&M Store. I’m lucky enough to be a B&M Store Blogger Ambassador and so I’ve been trawling their website to find…

Have a Troll-tastic Christmas with Trolls Holiday

The first time Little Miss H saw the Trolls film, she didn’t seem that taken by it. Which was a shame because all of her friends seemed really into it.

Ahhhh Christmas. It’s such a magical time. It’s even more magical now we have children. You see Christmas through their eyes. The excitement of seeing a tiny Christmas elf door appear outside your bedroom or of getting to unwrap a book every day during Advent. We always put our Christmas tree up in the first weekend in December. We want Christmas to last as long as possible. But we don’t like to start it in November and our tree tends to…

Reviewing the brand new Hatchimals: Hatchimals Surprise!

On Friday 6th October 2017 I officially became the best Mum in the world. For Friday 6th October 2017, was Hatchimals Day and the UK launch of the brand new Hatchimals Surprise. The toy that is on track to be the on every child’s Christmas list this year. And we were fortunate enough to be sent one by Spin Master and take part in a mass hatching on Twitter. I have to admit that I’d never heard of Hatchimals until…
