‘Into the Woods’ with Wayfair this Christmas – AD

‘Into the Woods’ with Wayfair this Christmas – AD

This is a Sponsored post. December is now upon us and for many it’s time to start thinking about decorating your home for the festive season and this year we have teamed up with Wayfair to show you the latest trend this holiday. As part of the Wayfair ‘Home Experts’ team we were tasked with re-creating an ‘Into the Woods’ themed Christmas by swapping our ‘traditional’ decorations for a more rustic look. At the beginning of November we purchased a beautiful Maze Bookcase from Wayfair, which sat all boxed up and lonely in…continue reading →
Saving time with a Beko Dishwasher

Saving time with a Beko Dishwasher

Over the past 11 years when I first moved in with Kirsty I have been pining after a dishwasher. I love to keep our house nice and tidy and it’s a bit of a bug bear of mine to see cups and bowls and plates and cutlery left on the side by the sink, waiting to be cleaned. I also detest washing up, so for me, by not having one in my life, it’s a lose, lose situation, bring out the violins. Although it may have been a simple solution to just go…continue reading →
Eat Like a Pro with Beko Vacuum Blender

Eat Like a Pro with Beko Vacuum Blender

When it comes to encouraging M to try new foods, it is no secret that we have struggled in a big way. However, over the past year or so we have noticed that M does not exhibit any form of anxiety or reluctance to try new drinks, so we were thrilled to be asked to review the Beko Vacuum Blender, as part of the ‘Eat Like a Pro’ campaign which aims to inspire families to eat a healthier and more balanced diet in a fun and exciting way. Before I jump straight into…continue reading →
Spring Cleaning with Dyson Cinetic Big Ball Animal 2 – AD

Spring Cleaning with Dyson Cinetic Big Ball Animal 2 – AD

Our house can get pretty busy and pretty messy with a bouncing 5, soon to be 6 year old boy and a hyperactive cockapoo puppy, both of whom lack the fundamental ability to stay in one place for more than 5 seconds at a time, especially in the half term holidays! So what better way to fill the little man’s time, than to put him to work on the chores around the house, starting with the vacuuming. It’s also perfectly timed with our latest review of the Dyson Cinetic Big Ball Animal 2…continue reading →
Win a Beko SteamXtra Iron

Win a Beko SteamXtra Iron

Those who know me (Clara) well will tell you just how much I love to keep my home clean and tidy and I love to try new appliances to help with domestic tasks. I am certainly no stranger to household chores and I actually quite enjoy a day at home with the duster in one hand and the cleaning spray in the other, I find it repetitive but satisfying. There is one domestic chore however, which until last September when the little man started school, I (rather successfully) avoided, ironing! So I was…continue reading →
Beko SteamXtra SmartStation Steam Generator Iron

Beko SteamXtra SmartStation Steam Generator Iron

The name of the iron might be a bit of a mouthful, but to be honest who cares when it is possibly one of the best irons I have ever used. I know it's quite sad to get excited about an iron,  but when you own one that is just super great at the job it's meant to do, then that's a huge bonus. When Beko got in touch to ask us to share our ironing hacks we did have to think long and hard about what we actually think saves time when…continue reading →
Morrisons one stop Christmas shop

Morrisons one stop Christmas shop

There are just two weekends left before Christmas. When you work full time everything is planned in weekends. We count how many weekends left to a holiday, how many weekends before a birthday and how many weekends left to get our Christmas shopping done. Most of our shopping this year has been done on line, but there are always the people you forget or the cards you didn't buy. Which is where Morrisons helped us out this year. Morrisons seems to have had a bit of a revamp since we last visited. It's…continue reading →
Warmer dog walks with Millets

Warmer dog walks with Millets

Now that November is almost over we are finally able to take Beau to some of our favourite beaches. The beach can be a tad cool this time of year, but it's incredibly beautiful when the sun shines. Thanks to some rather fab coats and shoes from Millets we are able to enjoy some warmer dog walks as Winter approaches. Traditionally this is the time of year we seek warmth and comfort in the home. But now that we are dog owners we are spending much more time outdoors, in rain or shine.…continue reading →
Operation Clean up with Beko

Operation Clean up with Beko

When you have a 5 year old and a 10 month old puppy the house can go from pristine to never been cleaned in about 60 seconds. I have lost count of how many times I hoover our living room and kitchen in a day. Anything that can be smooshed into a million pieces can be achieved either by M or Beau. We were recently sent a Beko Cordless Handheld & Upright Vacuum Cleaner to put through some tests and couldn't wait to see if it could handle the mess our puppy and…continue reading →
Half Term Tech

Half Term Tech

As Half Term fast approaches we start to think about the tech our little man has available to keep him entertained in-between his exciting adventures with his grandparents. As M gets older he loves to share what he gets up to whilst we are at work. The easiest way for him to do this is via a tablet. We were recently sent an Acer Iconia tablet that is perfect for allowing him to watch his favourite shows on Netflix or YouTube Kids and also capture photos of his day. With 32GBS of space…continue reading →
