Review: Ozeri Precision Bathroom Scales

As you know I have been working with Ozeri to bring you some fantastic products including their frying pan and their 12" wok. This time I'll be letting you know about their bathroom scales.
I don't know about you but when it comes to scales, I like them to be precise, quick and to preferably use the\ same ones each time so that I know that there is a level of consistency with my weighing.
The Ozeri Precision II Bathroom Scales are fantastic. In the past I have always had problems waiting for digital scales to calibrate - not with these ones. You step on them and within a  second, for better or for worse, your weight in right there on the widescreen LCD screen.

Review: A Great Day out At Chester Zoo

So on Friday we were treated by SuperBreak to a day out at Chester Zoo. We love days out as a family and the zoo is an ideal place to go to explore for our children to have fun and learning at the same time. The last time we went to the zoo Alice was a baby and still in the buggy. This time was a whole new experience for us as Alice was wanting to walk everywhere, and it was baby Rosie who was being pushed around, seemingly unbothered by the whole day!
We were given a map, which made our day really easy as we found our way through the zoo.

Review & Giveaway! Wooden Advent Calendar & £25 Voucher From Love Christmas Ltd

I was very excited to be given the opportunity to work with a lovely chap at Love Christmas Ltd.  Love Christmas is a website that well...loves Christmas, and all of their products truly reflect that.

If you are like me the thought of Christmas is just exciting and terrifying in equal measures. I don't know about you but I like to try and get all of my Christmas shopping finished by the start of December. This is not me being bah humbug about the whole thing - I just want everything bought and wrapped, decorations at the ready - so that we can enjoy Christmas as a family without worrying about what to buy, when to buy and when to find the time.

Review: My Little Pony. Call of the Cutie DVD

We were really excited to receive another My Little Pony DVD in the post. Emily and Alice loved the last one and were very much looking forward to watching My Little Pony friendship Magic Call of the Cutie.
Alice is starting to enjoy watching TV now. Not so much films - she has the attention span of a gnat I'm afraid. But she did sit down to watch single episodes of this, coming and going as she pleased. Emily was the main reviewer of these DVDs, so I'll be getting her opinion on this DVD for you!

Review: Tommee Tippee Weaning Set

I was delighted to be given the opportunity of reviewing some Tommee Tippee products on my blog. We have always used Tommee Tippee products for our babies; including bottle warmers, insulated bottle bags, even the bottles themselves. Rosie is currently rocking the pink patterned baby bottles - we love them!o

But alas, the time has come for us to begin to move on from baby milk and to start introducing some real food into Rosie's diet. I recently wrote about our issues with weaning and potty training here.

Review: 12" Green Earth Wok by Ozeri

You may remember I mentioned I am working with Ozeri to bring you some reviews of their products. I reviewed their 8" frying pan a few weeks ago and confessed that it was my best pan ever. Now  have to change my mind - the wok is now my favourite - sorry frying pan!

You may be reading this thinking I am bonkers, it's only a kitchen item, what am I making a fuss for? Well, if you're anything like me you will spend a good chunk of your time cooking - so it really is important to have the best tool available to you - and this truly is a cracker.

Our Visit to Imperial War Museums (IWM) North for the #BigDraw

We were delighted to be invited to a preview event for this October half term activities by Imperial War Museum (IWM) North. Families are being invited to take part in the world's largest drawing festival this October. You can take part in The Big Draw 2013 by creating  their own artistic work inspired by collections at the museum!
As you know I am a history student so I love this museum. We have been a few times before, but we were really looking forward to going as bloggers so that we could share with you their programme for families.

We were all up bright and early this morning to go to Manchester for our visit. We took the double buggy along with us for Rosie and Alice, but we let Alice walk around. We had a fantastic day.

Review: Twinkl Online Resources

 I was very keen to get involved with reviewing Twinkl - an online resource for parents, children and schools. It is a "one-stop shop for thousands of unique and printable teaching resources for EYFS, Key Stage 1, Key Stage 2, home educators, nurseries and more." I have to agree with them here - it really is a comprehensive website. It contains over 91,000 unique teaching resources such as work sheets and activity ideas as well certificates and signs and labels.

As you know I have Emily aged 10 and Alice aged 2. (I'm not too keen to throw Rosie in at the deep end of academia just yet!) Emily is due to take her SATs at the end of this school year, so of course I was very keen to try out this website, not only for myself but to show to you also.
