Finlays Fairy Garden: Review and Giveaway

Fairy Gardens, magical little oasis right in our backyards. Did you know that fairy Gardens can be dated right back to 1893? Created to lure fairies in to your garden and bring with them good luck for your home! How magical! Who believes in fairies? Put your hand up, I do! I do! I’m a big believer in magic! As well as the chance of luring little fairies into your garden creating a fairy garden is also a great way to ignite your child’s imagination, 2 birds 1 stone!!

I was so excited when Gardens2you provided Finlay with his very own Fairy garden kit to review.

Finlay has thoroughly enjoyed setting up his fairy garden. It is by no means finished, but that’s what I love.… Read More

How to save on your weekly food shop: Approved Food review

As a mum who works part time, I am always looking for ways that I can save money. Especially as I had my hours cut late last year at work and now I’m also on Maternity leave. Every saving helps. A big spender for most families is the weekly food shop. I have recently switch supermarkets which saves us a hefty amount each month.
