Christmas family days out sussex breakfast with elves fort fun Eastbourne

 

Fort Fun is Eastbourne’s best adventure park  bursting with so many different activities from indoor soft play, a massive outdoor adventure play area, bouncy pillows, American golf and much much more! This Christmas Fort Fun has introduced ‘Breakfast with the Elves’. Every Saturday and Sunday in December leading up to Christmas, from 9 am you can enjoy a buffet style breakfast of pastries and cereals followed by a traditional English breakfast. All while the North pole Elves make sure you have an enjoyable and magical experience! I jumped at the chance when I was asked if we would like to pop down one morning to see what was on offer. It was just up Finlay’s street and I have loved Fort Fun Since I was a little girl myself!

We booked our tickets well in advance online.I’m guessing you can buy your tickets on the day in person but the chances are the sleigh rides (you choose your time slot) may be sold out. They were quite limited already when we booked back in October! This option is great actually as it keeps the queues to a complete minimum.… Read More

Luxury Christmas Food Hampers: Prestige Hampers Review

Christmas Gift ideas Luxury Christmas Food Hamper Prestige Hamper Review

 

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas! The magic has well and truly arrived.  I don’t know about you but I get quite nostalgic when it comes to Christmas. Although I have very few memories of Christmas as a kid, I have a few special snippets. Little things can trigger those memories and I love it. Growing up in the 80’s was awesome, and I do remember that hampers were everywhere. Whatever the occasion there was a hamper. It wasn’t like today no way. In my day some old ‘Del Boy’ would turn up at the door, take your order and a few days later it would arrive on a milk float! How I remember the Hamper of Multicoloured Fizzy pop turning up. A hamper that today would have every health professional having a heart attack, but I loved it!

 

So when I got the Chance to review a luxury Christmas Hamper from Prestige Hampers, I got that that little fluttery feeling deep inside and those luminous bottles of pop from my childhood danced inside my head!… Read More

Felix Christmas Goody Bag Tin – The Purrfect Christmas Gifts for Cats!

Pet Christmas Present Cat Felix Goody bag tin petshop.co.uk

 

Anyone who knows me knows I am a huge animal Lover. I have had animals in my life since I was born and to be honest I couldn’t ever imagine not having one around. Nor could I imagine the children growing up without a pet. To us, our pets are extended members of our family. We like to spoil them as much as we spoil the kids! This year has been tough, we lost our old Ginger Moggy. He was a beautiful old soul and he has left a very big hole in our lives. None more so than in Sebastian’s, our posh pedigree Havana Brown, Oriental Shorthair. So he deserves some extra special love, treats and affection as he adjusts to life without his much loved brother from another mother!

 

When Petshop.co.uk got in touch to ask if they could send Sebastian a little treat, it was a big fat yes!… Read More

Hugzzies Review: Keeping Cosy on the School Run With a Warm Hug!

hugzzie review keeping warm on the school run in winter

 

Summer is now well and truly behind us and I have definitely noticed a dip in temperature this past week. Although it’s officially Autumn, Winter is coming and Jack Frost has most certainly been nipping at all our toes. It isn’t the most pleasant of things having brave the cold every morning for the school run, but none the less it has to be done. I am always cold, always have been, probably always will be. So I always wrap my babies up with this in mind come the colder weather. This annoys Finlay, he would go out in pants in the middle of a blizzard if he was allowed too. However, Emmie can’t protest yet and being so little it’s very important to make sure she’s warm.

 

A few weeks ago I was asked if I wanted to try out Hugzzies. Super soft teddy bear with a microwavable lavender infused wheat bag inside that hugs around the waist giving the feeling of a warm hug, for use at home or on the go!… Read More

When I saw that Yankee Candles had released a Halloween range of Candles I began to smile. That smile turned to laughter and before knew I was cackling like a witch high on eye of newt! Why? Well, I am a huge fan of Yankee candles! They are my all time favourite scents and I just couldn’t hold in my excitement. Yankee, wonderful sniffy scented candles and Halloween! Two of my favourite things together. Imagine my delight when I found out I was being sent some of the range to review. I hopped on my broomstick and did a few loops for joy!

 

So for those of you not in the know. Why are Yankee Candles so great? The simple answer is they last for a very long time and they smell divine, before, during and long after burning. I find many scented candles, just don’t do what they say on the tin.… Read More
