I’ve been blogging here now for seven years and those seven years have brought us some incredible opportunities but the one I am going to tell you about today is probably one of our favourites! Bugs was asked by the lovely people at Petplan to design his very own dream pet. Well he spent ages thinking about this, not satisfied with an ordinary pet he finally designed his very own pet monster called Patch… Read more
A yummy snack called Knoppers have just launched in the UK and today we are going to tell you all about them! Knoppers first launched in Germany in 1983 and are a very popular snack in more than 50 countries! I’m not sure why it’s taken them so long to get to the UK but boy oh boy are we glad they have! Storck are the brand behind Knoppers who have previously brought us Werther’s Originals, Toffifee, Riesen and Bendicks. Read more
I don’t know about you but the summer holidays really wear me out. This year more than any other year because not only have I got the kids at home every day and we are trying to pack our days with lots of fun activities, I’m also trying to keep on top of work and train for my half marathon next month too! So as you can imagine I am pretty much running on empty at the moment. Read more
If you sit and think for a little while I am sure that you can think of one single person or one group of people that have gone out of their way to help out another person or indeed an entire community.

So when Philips got in touch with me to see if I’d like to take part in the #BreatheTheDifference campaign I had my eyes opened a little! I was very surprised to learn that indoor air can be up to 5 times more polluted than outdoors [i] and that allergens have a major impact on indoor air quality. Read more
It’s that time of year again when I start thinking about the kids going back to school in September! I know! I know! They haven’t even finished for the summer yet but if I don’t do it now I will leave it to the very last minute and then rush about like a headless chicken for the last two days of the holidays! Another reason to start early is so you can shop around and grab yourself some bargains! I’ve recently been checking out what back to school products Very.co.uk have on offer and thought I’d show you some of their best! Read more
One thing that often gets forgotten in my house is the poor old washing machine, we expect it to clean our clothes but how can it do that effectively when it doesn’t get cleaned itself? I discovered Dr Beckmann a couple of years ago and haven’t looked back since! Read more
