Eurocamp Avant Accommodation Review

It feels so long ago now that we were on our holiday in France. The purpose of our holiday was to review the three bedroom Avant accommodation with Eurocamp. This style accommodation is new for 2015, and we were one of the first to step inside. Our accommodation was in La Pointe, St Giles which is in Bènodet, Brittany.

Week 8 on weight watchers

This week my goal was to loose 2Ib to bring me back to my 5% total weight loss target again, which I reached just before my holidays. Unfortunately this did not happen, and I am a little stumped as to why.
 

More drinks review

My weight loss journey is now in full swing. I think I have got my small holiday weight gain back off and my energy levels are rising. My twisted knee ligament seems to have healed much quicker then anticipated too so the exercise has started again. I have chosen to start the Couch to 5k programme again as I enjoyed it so much last time I completed it, albeit a few years ago now.

Photo albums with Snapfish

Everyone has a camera these days. Whether it be with a phone, a compact camera or a DSLR. Its great photos and memories can be captioned anywhere from holidays to sports days, but what do you do with your photos once you have clicked and possibly shared on social media? The majority of ours are just stored on our computer and I dread to think what will happen if we ever get a virus or get burgled. All those captured memories lost forever. My nan asked me a few Christmas's ago what I do with them, and she couldn't believe I didn't pop them in a photo album.

Wood Worx Jewellery box kit review

Children often get "bored" despite the many toys, books and games they have. They don't actually mean bored when they come whining, sometimes it is a challenge they want. Something to do with a purpose. We have noticed this more and more with J recently as she is becoming older. She is closer now to being 6 then she is to 5, and needing that little something extra.

CHILL FACTORe Arctic Adventure Playground review

It doesn't often snow in England, and certainly not when there is a heat wave looming, when all you can think about is how to cool the hot sweaty fed up children down. What if I told you there is a place you can have fun and "chill out" in Manchester? Though you will still need to wrap up warm. Well there is a place that can do just that, and its just had a great new make over. Its the NEW Arctic Adventure Playground also known as Mini Moose land at Chill Factore. It is perfect for children aged 4 and under.  We actually spent S's 2nd birthday in the playground at Chill Factore and had great fun. Now its even better.

Toy Post Office Review

S has finally reached the age where she likes playing with J now rather then doing her own thing alongside her. This is an age thing and yes this brings ALOT of sibling arguments. To try and alleviate the "but I was playing with that" start of an argument we have got a toy Post Office for them to play with together. So far this has worked well as one can be the post office worker, whilst the other the customer.

Weight Watchers Week 7 results

First of all let me apologise for not updating last week. There is a reason why I did not update, and that's because I chickened out of going to group and didn't weigh in. Big mistake I know. I have been this week though, hooray.

Love Marlenka Cake review and giveaway

Hands up if you like cake. Everyone I know loves cake, some like it sweet and sickly, others like it moist and subtle. I've never heard of anyone not liking cake so when Love Marlenka asked if I would like to review some, AND give some away to one of my lucky readers I just couldn't refuse.
