Halloween Halfterm With WILKO!

Hey Everyone!

Half term has finally arrived I'm so relieved more for the children to be honest they are definitely in need of a week off!

This half term we are having a Halloween Party with the help from Wilko!! They are literally a one stop shop that has everything you could need for over half term, from home decor to halloween costumes and treats or even crafts for the children! I love nothing more than shopping in one shop and not having to drag the kids round everywhere definitely a stress free trip when you can buy everything in one place!

We received a huge box full of home decor and some really cool halloween costumes for the children which i can't wait to share. All of the items are such good value for more as well as being great quality so fits perfectly in our family budget, and i love not having to buy new things every year, reusing is the way forward sometimes!

The kids had some really fun costumes, Violet went for the Ghost bride, great quality and it came with a veil for only £10.
Alister had the Scary Surgeon also £10.

My favourite item was definitely the Large copper pumpkin such amazing value for money i need a few more!

The Halloween Decor Pack was great we use the bunting around the living room and stuck the different cut outs on doors and walls.
The Hanging ghost was 4ft and only £6 it was super spooky especially with the lights off!

The kids loved wearing their costumes for the party!

We all used the Face paint kit and at £5 it was good value especially as theres lots to choose from.

                                                  Happy Halloween!

What i wore / Sardinia May 2018

Hi Everyone i wanted to a style post as i took pictures of most of my outfits on holiday, well apart from the beach and pool days! I  love dressing for summer especially after a day or two when my tan got a bit better! Dresses were my go to outfits for most evening purely because there so light and airy and to be honest i barely get to where dresses back in England!!

First outfit with the hubby, this gorgeous floral yellow dress from Primark, i brought this back in the autumn would you believe for only £10! I wore it with my comfy sandals from Next and my little woven white bag which I've had for a few years from TU Tesco.

Top once again £5 bargain from Primark and my skirt was brought last year from H&M i love the colour it just goes with everything and the paper bag style is really flattering too! These comfy little wedges are a few years old from Primark a complete old faithful because they are so comfy to wear and go with everything being black and tan!

I absolutely adore this dress! I brought this about a week or two before my holiday from H&M found it in the sale 50% off for £14.99!! it fits like a glove and i felt beautiful in it because its so feminine and floral!

Now this dress I've had a year or two again Primark £10 bargain, its the sort of dress that can only be work when its hot i feel because its so beachy! honestly its the first time I've worn it and loved wearing it because it was super comfy and i loved the cut around the arms.

I wore this romper so much throughout the week, it was a great throw on to the beach or pool, so light and i really don't wear red so something different for me. Again Primark £6.

Lastly i love this top i got this from Matalan a few weeks back for £7! I've paired it with these Primark stone coloured shorts last years but i have seen them in there this year to! same sandals and bag.

I really hope you've enjoyed this post! Let me know if you'd like to see more style videos!

Winter be GONE! A little update April 18

Hi everyone not wrote on here in a long while! Were coming to the end of Easter half term and in someways deep inside I'm like hurray! and others like the thought of doing the school run and going back to work again I'm taking in denial!

Has everyone had a good 2 weeks off? the last week we've been to Wales you might of seen from my recent photos on Instagram, it was such a blissful week away with the family! Graham had a chance to really put his feet up and actually stayed in bed longer than me for a change which was so refreshing to see.

The next week ahead looks amazing! i can not wait for this wet and cold weather to go, it doesn't even feel like we've had much of a spring at all this year so far and were potentially going to hop straight into summer very soon! Im all for snuggling with hot chocolates watching a movie with the fire on but i really do feel like its taking its toll on me!! Theres just something about the sunshine and warmer vibe that really gets me motivated in so many more ways.

I even had a few throw back time hops from the previous years of how glorious the weather had been which made me super jealous! i can not wait for a hot holiday thats for sure!

I thought id throw in some pictures of our holiday in, we stayed at Fishguard Bay Resort. It was our first time here and honestly the views are breathtaking! We stayed in a 3 bedroom lodge with a hot tub which was definitely needed and so worth it!!

Theres not a huge amount to do on the site itself but we did venture out a couple of days around wales to explore. We visited a trampoline place called Hangar Five and did some pottery painting at The Creative Cafe. We visited Folly Farm on the thursday and ended with Tenby beach on the way home which was lovely!

I will have a video up next week of our trip so definitely look out for that probably on Tuesday!

Valentines Gift Swap Challenge! Kenwood MultiPro Excel Food Processor and Blender Review

Don't you just love sending something to someone just because.. from as little as a message, to a box of chocolates or something as big an appliance because you know that person would love and appreciate it. As part of a Challenge, i was sent a lovely gift from my friend Amy from AO.
I had no idea what i was going to receive and couldn't believe my eyes when the delivery driver dropped of this huge box! My friend Amy knows me so well as she had sent a Kenwood Multi Pro Excel food processor and Blender! This appliance is definitely one of a kind! i advent seen anything like it around, it has so many functions in one appliance it is incredible!

Ive been using is for the last few days, setting it up in different ways, there are so many attachments!
We have enjoyed using the large blending jug for our morning smoothies, not only does it blend up like a dream but its quiet to! The scales function is brilliant, just swap off the attachment for the scale plate so simple! 

The Kenwood Food processor can be used for baking, chopping, slicing it has so many blades to swap and change the possibilities are endless! I also love the fact that they come in a neat and tidy box to store away and to keep little ones hands out as these blades are sharp! 

Theres also a juicing attachment and a mini chopper which i have yet to use, but i can't wait to give all the functions ago, i have one appliance that does everything you need is a total must! Because generally trying to store each and every single appliance is just impossible. 

The Kenwood Multi Food Processor and Blender looks very smart and would still look very minimal sat on the work surface, the design is finished with stainless steel  which definitely gives it that extra luxury feel, i love the fact the blender is glass and all the attachments seem to be very good quality.

RugDoctor Home Delivery Review

Hi everyone  i had a Home Delivery of a RugDoctor over the weekend and it was fantastic!
I have never used one before but have seen them about for a few years. I got down to cleaning as soon as it arrived, followed the simple step by step instructions and cleaned the living room carpet within 10 mins! Honestly i can't believe how quick and easy it was to set up and use. 

I ended up tackling the sofa the next day with the hand tool which was fantastic! It really made such a difference to my grubby looking sofa! It removed all of the stains that had built up overtime and made the whole thing look vibrant again. The hand tool was very easy to attach, there was a simple diagram on the machine to show you exactly how to swap it over.

What i loved about this machine is that you can literally use in on most household furniture, i also used it on Alister's mattress. One thing i did notice about using the RugDoctor is that it didn't leave any of the areas sopping wet, they all dried so quickly, literally in a couple of hours which is a massive bonus, especially when cleaning things in the winter.

You can order the RugDoctor on their website and hire it out for 24-48 hours, there are different add on tools as well as concentrated cleaners and spot cleaners.
Definitely check it out its so affordable and I've had great results!
