What’s inside a Degustabox?

What’s inside a Degustabox?

A few months ago we were sent a Degustabox, which we vlogged about on our YouTube Channel. We really enjoyed it and were super excited to be sent another one to review this month. If we had to make a choice, this month's was our favourite so far as it seemed to be more aimed at our tastes. The Degustabox is a subscription service where you get sent a box of interesting food items for £12.99. It's quite exciting waiting to see what you get when you open it. This month didn't disappoint.…continue reading →
Vita Coco – Coconut water for kids

Vita Coco – Coconut water for kids

A few years ago during a major healthy lifestyle change, I disocvered the wonders of Vita Coco Coconut water. I fell in love with their Pineapple flavoured Vita Coco and managed to cause my local health food store to sell out several times. I even won a case of Vita Coco once, due to my love of their drinks. So I was really interested to discover that they now offer a Vita Coco for kids. Vita Coco Kids, is a natural fruit flavoured coconut water which comes in two flavours, Apple & Blackcurrant…continue reading →
Brandon Wagons – Trailer for children

Brandon Wagons – Trailer for children

When we discovered we were going to Camp Bestival, we put together a long festival packing list as it was a first ever festival. We spent ages researching and realised our little stroller that fits in the car when it's rammed full of stuff, would not stand up to the hills and bumpy ground in a festival. The lovely people at Brandon Wagons got in touch and asked us if we'd like to be Brandon Wagons Ambassadors. We accepted their very kind offer and were so excited to await the arrival of their…continue reading →
Nokia Lumia 1020 – Smart phone photography

Nokia Lumia 1020 – Smart phone photography

A few months ago we were contacted by the lovely Nokia folk on Twitter. They had noticed I was interested in the Nokia Lumia 1020 after seeing the lovely Xanthe take hers on a photo trip. Her photography has always inspired me and I loved that there was now a smart phone camera which allowed photographers to improve their smart phone photography to another level. We were offered a ten day trial to put the phone through it's paces and to decide if a move away from our iPhones was the way forward.…continue reading →
Box Upon A Time – #review

Box Upon A Time – #review

It's safe to say that Kirsty and I aren't the most fashion conscious of people, but we do have our own styles and try to make ourselves look presentable. I am always trying to change my style, I mostly look to the high street for inspiration. This year I saw a lovey pair of print jogger trousers from River Island, something I would usually walk straight past as they are a bit bold and very girly. When I first came out I thought I had to conform to the stereotypical 'lesbian' fashion to…continue reading →
Beach time with Joules

Beach time with Joules

Clara and I are frequent beach visitors. We got engaged on a beach, enjoy romantic evenings on the beach and now that we are parents we enjoy taking our little man to the beach. Someone recently got in touch and asked us if we'd like to try some of the women’s bikinis and swimwear from Joules and well, after having a browse, we just couldn't refuse. One of C's favourite tops is from Joules and we've always been so impressed with the quality so we thought it would be great to put some new swimwear through…continue reading →
Peekaboo Owl Toddler Blanket

Peekaboo Owl Toddler Blanket

A few weeks ago we were sent a gorgeous Peekaboo Toddler Blanket for M to put to the test. Anyone who has a toddler will know that a blanket has many purposes. It's used for snuggles when taking a nap, is an integral part of fort building and pretty much becomes a toddler's best friend. This beautiful blanket is made by a brand called La Millou, a brand that believe children should be seen and heard, therefore plain pastels are out and bright bold patterns are in. We chose an owl design as it's…continue reading →
We’ve started running

We’ve started running

Last month the lovely people at Sports Shoes sent us some fab running gear to wear during our adventures into running. We are both on a mission this year to get fit and change our lives, not only for ourselves, but also to set a good example to our son. We'd been putting off starting our venture into running for quite a while. But as the London Marathon applications opened and we found ourselves entering the ballot, we decided it was time to get in shape. We've both been using Thinking Slimmer, with…continue reading →
Vertbaudet – Children’s Clothes

Vertbaudet – Children’s Clothes

We are both feel it's important to dress M in comfortable, high quality clothing that lasts. When we were sent some Children's clothes from Vertbaudet we were very impressed with the quality. The items we were sent were a Vertbaudet Coat, hat/snood/mittens and some gorgeous polar bear pajamas. We've had the items for several months now and are really happy to report they are in just as good condition as the day we got them. M like most children is a rough and tumble kind of child. He doesn't hold back when at…continue reading →
Quinny Moodd Stroller – Review

Quinny Moodd Stroller – Review

When Kirsty and I started looking for strollers for Monkey I was adamant that we wouldn't buy a 3 wheeler. I didn't think they seemed safe from a stability point of view. So when we were asked to review the Quinny Moodd Stroller I was a little skeptical, however after using it constantly for the last month I can easily say I have eaten my words. I love this pushchair. We live out in the country and love to go for walks around parks and woodland areas. In the past we have really…continue reading →
