The perfect tea party for an aspiring princess… with Hallmark Cards and Tesco

Isn’t it every young girl’s dream to aspire to be a princess? Well Hallmark cards and Tesco are helping that dream to come true. Just keep on reading to find out more.

For my baby girl, we laid out a little tea party with all her toys with the fantastic party kit we received from Hallmark and Tescos. I’m sure she felt like a little princess, even if she doesn’t quite know what a princess is!

We cannot wait to see the new Beauty and the Beast film, with the greatest princess of them all – Belle. When I was younger Belle was the princess who I most related with. Her love of books is the same as mine.

8 Signs Your Home Needs A Brand-New Radiator

A well-maintained radiator can last for as long as 15 years, but the older it gets, the harder it needs to work to heat your home. A boiler that needs to be replaced is unlikely to be as cost effective and energy efficient as it should be, and it can be a danger to you and your family.

  • The radiator is older than 15 years.

Amazon Fire TV Stick Review

We have been very lucky to try out the Amazon Fire TV Stick recently. I know my husband was eager to set it up as he has missed the old Top Gear with Jeremy Clarkson since his show moved to Amazon Prime. So that’s the first show we will be watching!

National Stationery Week Giveaway

It’s National Stationery Week! and to celebrate I have this wonderful giveaway for all you stationery lovers out there. With stationery there is always something for everyone. Whether you are a pen lover, a doodler or a notepad fiend. I myself am a pen collector, if you leave a pen lying around, whoops it’s gone into my pocket! It’ just one of my habits, picking up other people’s pens. When I was younger I used to love going into the banks and collecting all the pens with the different phrases on.  The awful thing is I never use a pen until it runs out! I’m soon onto the next one.

So onto the giveaway. I have a fabulous set of Stabilo BOSS Original Pastel Highlighters, a set of pointMax pens and baby girl’s favourite – a set of Woody 3-in-1’s to win.

Everyone needs a highlighter. Myself as a blogger use them all the time to highlight important to-do stuff. The pastel shades are great to have.

National Stationery Week 24-30th April 2017

Today marks the start of National Stationery Week 2017. Each day throughout the week is a different theme to get involved with in the world of stationery. I think it’s a fantastic idea to go back to basics and have fun with all the different types of stationery out there.

National Stationery Week is a huge supporter of the #writingmatters campaign which is about how important handwriting is all around the world. I have to say I love to pick up a pen or a pencil and just write. I can write much better and faster than I can type!
