With Mothers Day coming up I’ve been scouring the internet for the perfect gift for my lovely Mother in Law – as well as looking for things that I might like myself – and I came across Pia, a jewellery brand that I hadn’t heard of before. I immediately loved their beautiful product range and when they asked if I’d like to review a set of jewellery with Mothers Day in mind I couldn’t wait to receive it.
Pia sent me the Faceted Rose Quartz collection which included three separate, individually gift boxed pieces – a ring, earrings and a necklace. The Pia gift boxes are beautiful and they ensure that the jewellery arrives as safely as possible and in beautiful condition.

When we started planning our extension – and our new kitchen – I had a small list of things I wanted. I wanted a utility room, a downstairs toilet, a bookshelf for my cookbooks and integrated appliances. I wanted the space to feel roomy and uncluttered, streamlined and without bulky appliances spoiling the look.
The kitchen plans were drawn up and Howdens, who we bought the kitchen from, had automatically included their own appliances but I knew I would rather shop around and have more choice than they could give.
In the end, although we got the appliances from a lot of different retailers they all ended up being Beko – they’re a brand I know and love, having had so many of their appliances in the past, and they are also affordable, being at the cheaper end of the appliance market.

It’s been well documented on this blog – and across social media – that my Husband and I love gin. It’s our drink of choice and as much as we enjoy drinking gin based cocktails you really cannot beat a classic gin and tonic. We love finding new gins to try so when we were sent a bottle of Rock Rose Premium Scottish Gin to try we couldn’t wait to get pouring!
The Rock Rose Premium Scottish Gin is made at the Dunnet Bay Distillers in Scotland and the first batch was only distilled in August 2014 – so it’s still pretty new as far as gin is concerned. The distillery experimented with botanicals to find just the right blend and ended up with a mix of juniper berries, rhodiola rosea, sea buckthorn, rowan berries and a few other things to make a taste that is fresh and zesty, full of berries and wonderfully smooth to drink.

Last night we headed off for one of our most exciting invitations to date. We were guests of Chessington World of Adventures to experience the brand new Gruffalo River Ride Adventure before it opened to the public. We were treated to a room in the Azteca Hotel for the night and our first experience of a Chessington World of Adventures hotel was so, so good!
The children had a separate sleeping area with bunk beds as well as a pull out trundle bed and their very own TV. The room was decorated to be in keeping with the hotel, there were jungle scenes and animals everywhere and the children have said it’s their favourite hotel they have ever stayed in!

LP and Little Man love anything creative – they paint, colour and draw pretty much constantly. Every day involves something arty and so when we were sent PlayMais to try out they couldn’t wait to get going and create something bright and colourful!
PlayMais is unlike anything we have used before. It comes as one box of materials and some activity cards to get started. The materials look like brightly coloured packing beads and I wondered how we would create anything using them. But PlayMais are so simple to use that you don’t need much creative ability to get going.
