Summer Checklist – Women’s Holiday Clothes and Accessories

Now the Summer holidays are in full swing it’s time to think about what women’s holiday clothes and accessories to take away. I have made up my own checklist, it’s a weather depending list! Most Cornish Summers are destined to have rain showers at some point, in fact as I’m writing this the heavens have opened. Mind you it’s great for my newly turfed lawn!

I’m always someone who needs a list to check off when I’m going away or even the day-to-day jobs. It makes me feel prepared for anything. I’m hoping this checklist will be very helpful as you prepare for the holiday season.

Sri Toys – Educational Wooden Toys Review

When I was small I loved my wooden jigsaw shape sorter, I got many hours of play from it. I think there is something special about wooden toys. So when we were asked to review a product sample from Sri Toys who specialise in wooden games and toys we couldn’t turn them down.

I was excited to see which toy we were given to look at. Arriving in the post was this gorgeous wooden alphabet snake in a lovely eco-friendly brown box.

Andy Pandy Bamboo Disposable Nappies Review

As you know I’m always up for trying out new products and this past weekend we have been trying out these great bamboo disposable nappies, (or diapers if you prefer!) from a wonderful little family orientated company called Andy Pandy based in the US. They specialise in eco-friendly baby products. They are on sale in the UK at the moment so accessible to everyone.

Review: Dry Kids Waterproof Dungarees

We have had a lot of terrible weather in Cornwall at the moment, it’s been flash floods, windy as well as the heavy rain. Not really Summer weather! So when I was approached to review waterproof dungarees from Dry Kids I thought we have the right weather for it! Plus having a new garden freshly turfed it would be ideal for baby girl to get out and about and try them out.

Dry Kids Waterproof dungarees

Dry Kids have lots of waterproof outerwear on their site, catering for ages from 2 to 12 years. There are lots to choose from including jackets, trousers and wellies. We browsed through the website and loved the look of the waterproof fleece lined dungarees, in Raspberry of course! You can also get them in Yellow, Navy and Turquoise.

The dungarees reminded me of when I was small, I had a blue pair very similar and bright green frog wellies for splashing about in the mud!

The Humble Honey Bee and Humanity

As you know I have always been a keen gardener and the most important thing to a gardener is the honey bee. Farmers around the world depend on bees to pollinate their crops, without the bees we ultimately have no food. So I’m sharing this infographic with you today on how honey bees affect the world around us.

As I go about designing my new garden, I’m going to plant lots of bee friendly flowers.

If you love bees, I have a review and giveaway running at the moment on a wonderful little kids book called Curious Beekeeper Nina.

Thanks for stopping by today.
