Pia Jewellery Review and Giveaway!

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.

An introduction to Rock Rose Gin and a Giveaway!

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!

An introduction to Rock Rose Gin and a Giveaway!

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.

The Gruffalo River Ride Adventure at Chessington World of Adventures

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!

PlayMais Classic Review and Giveaway

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 Classic Review and Giveaway

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.

Enjoying Beauty and the Beast Toys from Jakks Pacific

LP couldn’t have been more excited last weekend when an amazing delivery from Jakks Pacific arrived. We are very much in the Beauty and the Beast spirit at the moment, just so excited by the release of the new movie, that LP just couldn’t contain herself when she opened the parcel to find a beautiful Ballroom Belle doll, an Enchanted Rose Jewellery Box, a Enchanted Objects Tea Set and a Disney Princess Magazine.

LP couldn’t wait to unpack Belle. She loved her dress, her shoes and her beautiful hairstyle. She could pose her arms and legs, make her stand or sit and the fact that she looked just like Belle from the movie made her even more special. LP loved having her very own little Belle to play with, dance with, have tea parties with and even have sleepovers with.
