Review: Chill Factor Slushy Maker
Gifted¦ I still remember the childhood excitement of being allowed a slushy at soft play or the sweet shop. Would I go for red, blue, or BOTH? (All the cool kids went for both, obviously). Now the fun of slushies can happen at home, whenever you want and in whatever flavour you want! Keep it basic or concoct a slushy cocktail or dessert. The power is in your hands with the Chill Factor Slushy Maker!
Swizzels sweets: The taste of childhood
Sponsored Post¦ What’s the first sweet you think of when you hear “Swizzels”? For me it’s Drumsticks, but I love all their other sweets too. It evokes childhood memories whenever I spot them in the shop. I used to feel like I’d won the lottery when I left with a Double Dip – the pack of strawberry and orange sherberts with the iconic Swizzelstick for dipping. In the 90s, it wasn’t a kid’s birthday at school if you didn’t come home with a pack of fizzers or a fruit pop lolly. I might have just turned 30, but I felt like a big kid when it came to trying Swizzels sweets again! Yet, there were a couple of things I was worried about…
Review: Oliver’s Cupboard Organic Baby Food
Review – Gifted¦ Bored of bland baby food? Read on! Things get messy and fun when you’re starting to wean your baby. Reuben, who has just turned 1, was a bit later to the game than his sister. I’m not sure whether it’s because he is breastfed or if it’s just a coincidence, but he just wasn’t as interested in food as Autumn. He only really started eating things properly when he was about 10 and a half months old. Even now, he’s quite fussy and if he’s too tired or teething he won’t really eat anything that’s not smooth. That said, I’m keen to give him as much of a variety of flavours as I can. Autumn is very hesitant about any sort of spice. I wonder if it’s because I kept what she ate quite bland and not especially diverse for the first 3 or so years of her life. That’s why I was delighted to find Oliver’s Cupboard organic baby weaning food. Nutritiously balanced, these pouches contain flavourful meals which take inspiration from all over the world!
Rock ‘n’ roll and cupcakes: My 30th Birthday in London
Happy New Year! I think you can still get away with saying that if it’s still within the first couple of weeks of the year? I’ve had an extended break from the blog since just before Christmas which has been quite reinvigorating! However, I’ve been keeping busy as I returned from maternity leave to my day job, celebrated Christmas and celebrated several relative’s and friend’s birthdays. This included my own birthday at the beginning of January, when I turned 30 (eek!) I celebrated with a trip to London, doing some things I’ve wanted to do for years!
