Keeping holiday memories alive with Bags of Love

Photo Blanket

Holiday’s are very special occasions and on each of ours, I love to get my favourite photo’s printed and displayed as a memento. Last year we had not one, but two holiday’s of a lifetime. The first was Walt Disney World in August and the second was a visit to Santa’s Lapland in Finland. Before now I have got my photo’s printed onto canvas or posters but I am fast running out of wall space, so have been on the lookout for new ideas to display my favourite pictures. We have photo pillows on our bed as decoration and I… Continue Reading “Keeping holiday memories alive with Bags of Love”

#Win £100 worth of BOGS° boots

Bogs Footwear

Back in November we reviewed BOGS° Footwear, which are fantastic insulated waterproof boots. Before now, the problem with ordinary wellies is that in cold weather, it is tricky to keep the kids feet warm and we always end up wearing several pairs of socks which can feel bulky and uncomfortable. BOGS° boot range is 100% waterproof and winter-ready with 7mm Neo-Tech insulation rated to -30F that will keep feet toasty warm come rain, sleet or snow. We took ours to Lapland with us and with temperatures reaching -17°C at one point, never did anyone complain that their feet were cold. In… Continue Reading “#Win £100 worth of BOGS° boots”

Mifold Portable Grab and Go Car Booster Seat Review and Giveaway

Mifold car seat

As people that travel a lot, I was really excited to receive the mifold – Grab-and-Go Booster® seat to review. Car seats are an extremely topical subject right now, with stats showing that in around 30% of journeys that children take they are travelling illegally without any kind of car seat at all. These journeys include cab rides, transport on holidays, outings with grandparents or school friends and those unexpected trips when there is a need to take an additional child in the car. The UK car seat law requires all children travelling in the front or rear seat of any car,… Continue Reading “Mifold Portable Grab and Go Car Booster Seat Review and Giveaway”

Tips for picking the perfect holiday book and Giveaway

Reading

Picking the perfect book to take on holiday can almost make to break a holiday. I devoured the Order of the Phoenix by the side of a pool in Corfu and found a little bit of suspense alongside tales of friendship and the ultimate battle at the end was a great way to relax. I tend to steer clear of something too sad though, the last thing I want is to be a blubbering wreck by the side of the pool. The Holiday Gems blog post has the answers to all your holiday reading questions, including: What type of book… Continue Reading “Tips for picking the perfect holiday book and Giveaway”

We are seasoned travellers with children and the key to a peaceful journey is keeping the kids occupied. What parent hasn’t been here?

You want peace and quiet, the other passengers are huffing and puffing, your child is bored – the iPad is on flight mode so Wi-Fi is disabled, they don’t want to watch the same episode of Peppa Pig again (as you forgot to download something else) – and… Continue Reading “Keep ’Em Quiet’ – The ULTIMATE travel pack for Kids”
