Marvel Kids Game Review

There is nothing I would have loved more than to see my son grow and become a regular wee boy, full of mischief and energy and thoughts of cars and engines and games! Recently, I have started to look into creating mementos and doing things that he would have maybe done and loved taking part in, had he still been alive. This month, we attended a healing through art seminar and I found myself creating for the first time a very boyish,vibrant frame in Georgie’s memory and not my usual baby boy blue, angelic ones. It was as if my psyche was forcing a real time frame into memories that otherwise will remain static and into the past. I felt the need to grow my boy into the toddler he should have been now and my frame captured the thought perfectly. So when, a few days later, Disney approached me and inquired if we would like to review their Marvel kids’ games with Emma, I took it as a sign and as an opportunity to …

Building Blocks with House of Fraser- A Review

This is the third time I work with House of Fraser as a blogger and, as I have said it before, I absolutely love the prompt delivery and the clear and fast communication on their side, which make them the ideal merchant, time and time again, in my eyes! This time, we were asked to choose and review some items from the building blocks and construction toy range.  I jumped at the opportunity as I had seen a couple of girly Mega Blocks sets that were hugely discounted (The Barbie Build ‘N Style Beach House is still down to £14.99 from £39.99!) and I knew Emma would love them as part of her ever growing collection of construction toys. I must admit, I hadn’t realised that Mega Blocks has a whole range of construction toys for older children too. I was thrilled to see that Emma would be able to not only have a new Barbie playhouse that she could put together herself but that, she would also own her first Smurfette abode, all due …

GlassesShop – A Review

This post is long overdue; I have some sunglasses from GlassesShop.com that I have been looking forward to write about since the end of June. They have done the tour of the world twice in order to reach you through this review and the pictures I have of them so do give them a minute, would you :-)! At the end of June, the lovely people who represent the company which sells “online glasses at doctor quality”, contacted us and offered us these beautiful he and she sunglasses to try out and enjoy during our prolonged summer getaway. Unfortunately, the mail(and the glasses) arrived after we left for Greece and we only got our hands on them weeks later, when Alex went home to do a bit of work(and collect our parcels and mail, of course!). The company prouds itself in providing beautiful, cheap glasses which nevertheless do not compromise on quality nor attractive design. The two pairs we were sent, which you can see in the picture above, are light, of an elegant design …

My Nametags- A Review

Emma attends a lovely school in Northern Ireland which tends to be on the organised side. So, as expected, as soon as she finished P1 we were presented with a list of things for Emma to bring along when she return to school at the end of August, as a big P2 :-). A quick glance at the list and you would notice that the word “named” is recurrent at an alarming rate. This is a big school and name tags are the only way to keep track of everybody’s possessions and ensure the forgetful ones don’t go home missing cardigans or coats or school bags! So I did feel overjoyed and very relieved when the very kind people at My Nametags approached me on Instagram and asked me if we would be interested in reviewing their new Hello Kitty name tag range! The PR girls kindly forwarded us the relevant link and let us choose our preferred Hello Kitty design. Emma went for the pink and white stripes, with a Hello Kitty ballerina on. …

House of Fraser: A Review

When House of Fraser approaches us for a second time with the opportunity to review some of the children’s toys on their website, I jumped for joy. We first worked with House of Fraser at Christmas, when the toys’ section was launched on the website and we had loads of fun creating our Fraser Bear snow story. We knew they would be reliable, prompt in delivering the toys and very courteous, just like they were at Christmas. Who in their right mind would not like to work with such a lovely company! We were allowed to choose and we were sent the most wonderful Disney Lego, of Rapunzel and her tall tower, to Emma’s complete delight! We were getting ready to leave for Greece and we made it clear that our review would be written from abroad. The lovely people in charge of PR still agreed to send it to us, all in good time and with tracked mail too, to ensure safe arrival. Emma is five and a half and as any child with no …
