WIN 1 of 2 Smiggle Bundles


I love Smiggle. The products are so bright and funky and really encourage the Mini Mes to be more creative, which definitely gets a thumbs up from me. They now have the pencil cases, pens and lots of quirky little accessories, like animal and macaroon erasers, but I've recently discovered they do far more than just stationery too...




Smiggleball Glow - £12.50
This basketball hoop and ball duo are great for target practise indoors this winter. The hoop can be attached to the wall with the stickers provided (we even stuck ours to the bathroom tiles for some water play) or over a door with ease. The ball glows in the dark so it's perfect for some late night

Christmas Gift Giveaway - Day 26







WIN a GoldieBlox Play Set


Children's toys are regularly split both in store and online into pink and blue for the different sexes, but GoldieBlox tries to eliminate this gender separation and introduces girls to engineering concepts through play.

The CEO Debbie Sterling, a 32 year old engineer herself, spotted the gender discrepancy while studying at university and created the toy range to help tackle the gender gap in technology, science, maths etc. Minxy already enjoys these subjects thankfully and she was very pleased to be sent a kit to try out herself - she likes design and creativity too which the set covers well.




What happens if you die without a will?



In the UK, approximately two thirds of all people who die don’t leave a will. This means they die intestate, and according to an article in the Guardian, new laws for these situations were introduced on 1st October. The changes will not effect those who leave assets of less than £250,000, but those who leave a larger estate will be affected.



Where does the unclaimed money go?

The new rules are very complex and using the services of a solicitor or a will-writing firm belonging to The Institute of Professional Willwriters is advisable. For notarising wills for use abroad, consulting a company like Vanner Perez Notaries, specialists in such matters, will make life easier in the long term. 

Getting a will written up is becoming more important than ever due to the fact that more people own their own property and with house prices on the increase, thousands of people will have substantial assets to leave behind when they die. Having a basic legal will can make a huge difference to any family that you leave behind, saving them going to court and also stopping any of your assets going to the state. Approximately £76 million was taken from unclaimed assets in 2013 according to the BBC website.

WIN a Children's Print from
Witty Doodle



When Witty Doodle popped up in my news feed on Twitter I decided to have a peek at their website and soon found myself scrolling through a nice variety of stickers, prints and canvases for children's bedrooms; I was very keen to see what they had available for the Mini Mes as we are decorating at the moment. The first thing I noticed was just how different their products are. They are bright and attractive with lots of beautiful patterns and geometric shapes. The Little Picaso range has been deisgned alongside Dr Amanda Gummer, a child psychologist, to develop and stimulate babies minds and when I saw the Fairytale Frog canvas I knew it would be perfect for Minxy's princess palace!

Our Family Adventure with Eurocamp: Part 1


I'd heard many good things about Eurocamp with several friends returning year after year, so I was very excited to be invited to stay at a site of our choice to end the summer off nicely. I'd usually opt for a hot beach resort in a tropical location (to work on my tan and lounge by the pool of course) but I instead took this opportunity to explore Europe and to try somewhere a little different to the norm. After looking on the website at the 160 sites it was Birkelt, Larochette that really appealed to me. It's the only Eurocamp site available in Luxembourg and I was immediately drawn to it because it looked reasonably small and peaceful from the descriptions (426 pitches), yet it had enough entertainment and nearby attractions to keep us occupied for the Sunday-Friday break. 

I wanted to be able to relax and have beautiful surroundings without the risk of being bored. 
This was just perfect for us.
