Review: Green People Organic Pregnancy-Safe Sun Lotion

Sun cream is one of those products that mums obsess over. When I was a kid it was tissues; everywhere you went, everyone's mother always, always had a handy supply of tissues at the ready. But now that we're more au fait with the perils of sun damage and the importance of keeping young skin…

There are more than 100 of these cheeky, miniature monsters to collect, and once you've amassed a few of them, the objective is to build your own Zomlings Town. There are seven different…

Asda Baby Review

Asda Baby Review

I am a major fan of Asda, so I didn't need to be asked twice whether I'd like to review some of the items in their current baby range. Having also had a baby fairly recently, I was only too chuffed to get a little box of treats in the post for my newest addition.…

Tesco Sushi Review

Tesco Sushi Review

I love sushi. There's something about sitting on a terrace with the balmy evening warmth kissing your skin, gorgeous wine gliding down throat and the smell of herb shrubs permeating the air that makes me want to eat raw salmon by the bucket full - experiences I've had in both South Africa and Australia. Despite…

Radox Review: Moisturise Shower Cream and Eastern Spirit Bath Soak

It's not every woman that can claim to regularly share her shower with Johnny Depp, but in my case it's absolutely true. I'll explain myself properly in a moment, but suffice it to say that I nearly collapsed with joy when I was asked to review some bath and shower products for Radox. In fact, as…

Cuddledry Snuggle Fun Towel Review

Cuddledry Snuggle Fun Towel Review

You're bound to have heard of Cuddledry towels for babies and toddlers. Or 'those women with the towel from Dragons' Den' - as the women behind the company also like to describe themselves. Since they appeared on the show in 2007, the company proudly claims that the Cuddledry apron towel has firmly established itself as a baby bath…

Creeper Crawlers Review

Creeper Crawlers Review

  The Creeper Crawlers grip suit is a seriously clever babygro. It was created by secondary school teacher Ollwyn Moran in 2012 whilst she was studying for her Master in Education in NUIM. She entered and won the colleges’ Student Entrepreneur Competition with the idea for a babygro with grips, something she originally thought about over 12…

Waiting For Summer & From Dust To Dust Book Reviews

It has been so long since I had the luxury of having two brand new, paper back books to read. That smell of new paper is so delicious! There's lots of research to show that seeing their parents reading for pleasure encourages children to read themselves. So it is time for mums and dads to…

PhotoStack Review

PhotoStack Review

Children were able to play in a life sized model of a Blue Whale's heart at a museum we visited on holiday last year. My son was astonished to find he could fit, with room to spare, right through the aortic artery. It was pretty cool and we took loads of photos. Fast forward to…
