We were really excited to be chosen to be one of the lucky blogger ambassadors for Camp Bestival this year. We love camping anyway, but to add music, entertainment and activities into the mix was an extremely exciting prospect indeed! Camp Bestival takes place every year and this year was it’s 10 year anniversary. We couldn’t attend for the whole weekend, so we arrived on the Saturday afternoon, but I would advise booking for the…

You probably already know we are a home educating family; our learning is pretty organic and life led, from crafting and meeting friends to family adventures – it’s an interesting journey indeed! In fact, it’s the kind of journey that needs decent footwear! Even though we don’t have set terms or dates, we still need to be prepared when it comes to footwear.

We are getting so excited for our first ever trip to Camp Bestival in a few weeks and we’re still to buy a few things such as a tent and a trailer to lug our stuff about (I know, I know, we’re cutting it fine!).

We were recently invited to try out the summer menu at Pizza Express, and it was the perfect excuse to go for a sunny afternoon stroll as a family around Cardiff Bay before trying out their fantastic range of food. …

Have you ever been given the kind of gift that makes you want to question whether the gift-giver in question knows you at all?! You know, the kind of gift that makes you narrow your eyebrows and your jaw drops and nothing but a, ‘Eh?’ escapes your lips? Well, I’ve had quite a few of those gifts over the years, and to be honest I look back and laugh… My favourite of all of them…

Now in my mid-thirties I know how important it is to take care of my skin (shame I didn’t realise this ten years ago, eh?) and it’s also important to find ethical and natural beauty products. I was recently sent several Biomed products to test out and I absolutely love them! The products I received included Vein Vanish, Body Firmer, Ingrow Gone and Pure Detox Moisturiser. It arrived in high quality packaging, the colours clear…

We love real life escape rooms, from spooky ones to film related ones and all that’s in between, there’s always so much fun to be had! We were recently invited to test out the Fall In room at City Mazes, so I assembled a team of crazies and off we went! City Mazes is situated behind Cardiff Central Station, it’s pretty easy to walk to from town yet it’s tucked away from the bustling streets…
