Say YES to Yogurt With The EasiYo Yogurt Maker

If they had the chance, our kids would live on yogurt. They eat at least two yogurts a day, which is fantastic in terms of calcium intake, but not so great when it comes to the amount of sugar they consume.

Unlike the kids who favour strawberry and raspberry flavored Petit Filous yogurts, I much prefer greek style, plain yogurt, especially mixed with a digestive biscuit or two, which isn’t entirely healthy but is utterly delicious should you fancy giving it a try.

We were recently contacted by EasiYo, the creators of the world-famous yogurt making system, enquiring as to whether we’d be interested in giving their product a try.…

Hanging Out With The Hangrees

With it being the summer holidays, I have been willing to do almost anything to keep the kids entertained and happy. I’m not a huge fan of mess or goop so I must admit I was a little dubious when agreeing to review ‘The Hangrees‘ – the latest range of parody snack-based, slime creation to hit the market.

The kids, however, were overjoyed at the chance to get their hands a little sticky and of course to take a look at some new toys.

Snack Attack

We received a large box filled with goodies including a range of snacks, each wrapped in comedy packaging: Doritos became ‘Diaritos’, Reeces became ‘Reek’s’, Pringles became ‘Poo-ringles’ and a Burger King pack was renamed as ‘Booger King’.…

Celebrating National Picnic Week With Num Noms

Did you know that it’s almost National Picnic Week? National Picnic Week takes place from 21st June – 30th June 2019, so get your hampers, blankets, and butties at the ready!

With the weather having made a sudden transformation from dismal to delightful it seems perfect timing for Picnic Week! What’s more, Num Noms very kindly sent us a hamper heaving with plates, cups, napkins and a bundle of the latest Num Noms toys to enjoy so we are more than ready to mark the occasion.

Our little lady is a big fan of ‘cold dinners’ (as she calls her packed lunches) so picnic food is right up her street!…

Fathoming Fashion With Fashion World

Being in my mid-thirties and having had two children, I don’t feel all that fabulous about my figure nor the fashion which I choose to wear. I tend to stick to casual, comfortable and floaty clothing which covers my wobbly bits though I highly suspect that my wardrobe contents are ‘out’ rather than ‘in’ when it comes to fashion.

I was recently asked whether I’d be willing to review a couple of items from ‘Fashion World’, a trading style from JD Williams, the UK’s leading direct home shopping company. Given that I haven’t the foggiest when it comes to fashion, I thought it best to give this a bash if anything to modernize my Mumsy look a little.…

Crazy & Creative Card Games: SmartAss, Man Bites Dog & Switcheroo Review

With the summer holidays only six weeks away, I’ve already started drafting out packing lists – top of which is entertainment to keep the kids happy during their travels.

Whilst I’m quite happy to allow the children a little screentime during the flight, I tend to prefer that they steer clear of technology whilst traveling to avoid motion sickness and because wheres the fun in being glued to a gadget?!

University Games very kindly sent us three card games: Man Bites Dog, Switcheroo and SmartAss (which I have previously featured and reviewed upon this blog) to rate and review. Each of these games share similarities in style as they require creative, thoughtful and imaginative play, thus are ideal entertainment for both children and adults.…
