Back To School Shopping At LifeStyle Sports…

  So I finally got shopping for September – well, August 31st –  and am now 99.9% set with the kids Back To School gear! The books were delivered last week. I had a peak at the Eldest’s 1st Class Maths book and genuinely couldn’t work some of it out…! Maths was never my forté. School day flash backs of diagrams and sums like “Tommy had 46 apples and ate 17. How many apples did he have left?” *Shudder* Thankfully the kids uniforms are basic ones from any major retail shop and then I got the crests to sew on… (Or for Mammy or Mammy in law to sew on to be fair!) Got […]

Finish Dishwasher Tablets Giveaway!

So for anyone who doesn’t know, I recently got an extension onto my kitchen. (Before and After pic below for your viewing pleasure!!) It was badly needed, being an absolute shoebox before for a family of four.. hardly enough room to swing the cat! (He doesn’t actually get swung just FYI).. So I am now the proud owner of a massive swanky big kitchen that I still can’t believe is mine, complete with lovely big sky light windows, bright shiny cabinets, half of Ikea, and 3 things I have always coveted: A Utility room (who knew a seperate room for your washing machine – and all your crap – could make you so […]

Photobox Review

  Photobox.ie is an online site where you can create everything from personalised notebooks and diaries to mugs, and cushions using your own photos. It’s an ideal way of creating fun gifts for the likes of Father’s Day coming up this weekend! They sent me some credit to try out their site, so I went with Father’s Day gifts for Himself and my own Dad. Dad’s are impossible to buy for aren’t they!! How come they don’t seem to want as much as we do?? Sure isn’t it better than socks anyway!.. 😂 For himself I went with a novelty photo mug from the boys for €6. I got him one when […]

Baker Days Letterbox Cake Review and Giveaway!

The lovely people over at Baker Days sent me out one of their Letterbox Cakes to review. Based in the UK, they also deliver internationally! (Hurray!) You can find out more about their delivery service here. Baker Days Letterbox Cakes are 5 inches in size (12cm x 2.5cm) and serve 3-4 portions. (Myself, the Husband and the two kids easily had a slice each with still a bit left for later on.. when the kids go to bed!!) The idea is that this cake, as its name suggests, can be sent by post as a gift – just like a birthday card. Now I don’t know about you, but getting a […]

Organix Goodies Chunky Fruit Bars Review

Organix sent us out these new Goodies Chunky Fruit Bars to review, due in all major retailers by the end of April. Retailing at GB£2.49 as a 6pk of individually wrapped bars, they come in two flavours – Banana & Date and Apple & Date. Small bars with five bite sized chunks which can be broken off. Handy for kids like mine who will pick at pieces of fruit as a small snack. My eldest likened the shape of them to a kinder bar. My kids loved the bright packaging. Very colourful, fun and appealing. They also loved the fun fact on the back of the packet. My eldest is […]
