When I think of some of my favourite films when I was a child, Jurassic Park is always on the list! So when I was given a chance to review the Jurrasic World Two Range from Posh Paws, I was super excited. All three of my kids love dinosaurs, especially Freddie. He's even started shouting 'roar', every, single, day. It can be annoying at times, but it's adorable too.

Posh Paws are delighted to be the official toy partner for the new film Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. I am a huge fan of Posh Paws products, they're such fantastic quality, and so I knew these dinosaurs were going to look amazing. When I received them, they were just like what I thought - fantastic quality. We received three of their products in different sizes, one is a bag clip perfect for school bags. There are four sizes available; 10 inch, 21 inch, 23 inch and bag clips.



Jurassic World will be released on 6th of June 2018, and I'm sure you're just as excited as I am for the film. The Posh Paws plushes will be in store and online from the beginning of June. Each plush has a Jurassic badge on their sides. Their brilliant quality, as said above, and definitely a soft toy that will last. I love the detailing of the dinosaurs' skin and how soft they are.

Probably a job that I’m not so keen on doing is changing all of our bed covers every other week. But saying that, getting into bed that evening with clean new sheets feels amazing and it’s the day I really look forward getting into bed and snuggling to sleep in my new sheets. We were sent some 2 in 1 fitted bed sheets from BSensible a couple of weeks back. We have a king size one for our bed, two singles for the girls and a cot sized one too. I was interested to see how different they were from the cheaper ones, as these are a little bit more pricey – so having the chance to test them out for review was something I was interested in.

The first thing I realised when I opened them was the quality. The sheets are strong, soft and fantastic high-quality fitted sheets. Sensible bedding is made from 100% natural, sustainable and eco-friendly fiber. The process to make these bedding sheets makes TENCEL which is the fiber of the future as the solvent used is recycled. These new BSensible sheets also take care of your skin while you sleep and also prevent development of unpleasant odors.



Something I really liked about these fitted sheets is that they are waterproof, which is great with kids as there’s always a chance of a child having an accident during the night, or Freddie, my youngest, spilling his drink. It’s always great to have fitted sheets that will also save your mattress, something to think about when you buy new fitted sheets.

Not only are they waterproof, but they are also easy to put on your mattress. The sheets completely cover the sides of the mattress, which I really like and something many of my other fitted sheets don’t do. Another great bonus, these fitted sheets are machine washable and tumble dryer friendly – which is perfect for me.




Overall, I am really pleased with these BSensible fitted sheets. They are fantastic quality, and I honestly do think the prices are reasonable for the quality of the sheets. There’s a large choice of colours to choose from and different sizes too.

I have pretty much grown up with Star Wars fans, and one of my close friends is also a huge Star Wars fan. Chewbacca is probably one of my favourite characters from Star Wars. I’ve not watched all the films but the ones I have watched, I have pretty much enjoyed them. Saying this now, I think I should probably plan a Star Wars film binge with my partner one weekend. I do like to chill out and just watch a load of films, especially if they are sequels.

Solo: A Star Wars Story, a new Star Wars movie is launching on the 25th of May 2018. It tells a tale of the time a young Han Solo meets his future co-pilot, Chewbacca. Chewbacca plays a strong part in the film, and I thought it would be a great idea to show you all the adorable Star Wars plushes from Posh Paws that you can get in the launch of the new movie.



The Posh Paws Chewbacca Collection includes a 10” adorable and soft Chewbacca Plush. There’s also a smaller 8” size, we also received the cutest 8” Yoda too. As well as them, there are Star Wars bag clips. They are all at reasonable prices and honestly, great quality too.
There is also a #PoshPawsStarWars Twitter Party on the 30th of May at 1pm! I would love to see you there!

Freddie is nearly 2 years old and my, time is flying by! Quite a few months back he would never seem interested in any TV shows, which was good in one way. However, a few months down the line he’s had a huge interest in a certain two tv shows, one of them being Teletubbies. When I think of Teletubbies, it takes me right back to when one of my younger brothers was little and used to love watching it.

I am sure everyone knows the Teletubbies and the popular colourful characters, Tinky Winky, Lala, Dipsy and Po! We were recently asked to host a #TubbyPlaydate and I thought it would be perfect for Freddie and I. For Freddie so he can have some fun with his friends and for me, so I could have a catch up and a decent adult conversation – which is amazing when you’re constantly around children all day, every day.



I invited one of my friend's little girl to come along. She is only a few days older than Freddie and loves Teletubbies, just like Freds does. Tubby Playdates are super fun and a great way to gather toddlers together to be creative and have fun, but learning at the same time. The Tubby Playdate Packs are full of creative ideas to make the perfect Teletubbies playdate.

The pack included lots of creative ideas, one being, making their own Teletubbies headbands which were super cute. It was simple to make too which is a huge bonus when little ones are waiting. Freddie’s friend loved wearing her headband. There are lots of different activities to do that included, painting, colouring and cutting. They enjoyed colouring their own Teletubbies banners with their very own Teletubbies crayons.

Anyone who knows my little boy, Freddie, knows that he is literally obsessed with Henry and Hetty. We have a Hetty hoover and ever since he started crawling he would clap his hands with a huge smile on his face the minute he saw our Hetty hoover. Of course, we bought him a few Hetty and Henry products over Christmas and his birthday last year. He's always had an interest in cleaning and especially hoovering.

A couple of weeks back, we were sent the Casdon Deluxe Hetty Cleaning Trolley to review and the minute he saw the picture on the box, he got so excited. The trolley was really easy to put together, and it was done quickly. The cleaning set came with a pack of stickers which you stick onto the products and as you can tell by the photos, I'm not that brilliant sticking them on, a little bit wonky - ha!



The trolley is packed full of cleaning things such as a mop, bucket, sprays, mop bucket, dustpan and brush and even a little hoover and cleaning wipes and bag. Freddie has had hours of fun cleaning with and pulling the trolley around the house. It's not heavy but it's great quality and will certainly last.

When you have kids, it feels like you’re constantly tidying and cleaning up after them. One job I don’t really like, and I’m sure many other parents can agree, is vacuuming. I feel like I’m always vacuuming the house, but it feels like a huge effort to bring the hoover out more than once a day. This is where the Dyson V7 Trigger Handheld Vacuum Cleaner comes in handy. When I was given one to review, I instantly knew it would change my life.

Having a handheld vacuum cleaner that sucks up just as good as a cord hoover, is just amazing. My partner and I have used it many times on a daily basis, ever since we received it. Even the kids have a go hoovering the carpets/wooden floors. If you’re interested to know more about the Dyson V7 Trigger, here’s a full review:

The Dyson V7 Trigger is a handheld cordless vacuum cleaner. It has a run time of 30 minutes, but a less runtime if you put the vacuum on ‘max’. It takes 3.5 hours to fully charge, and you get a charger to plug into the vacuum and a plug socket, which is included. The vacuum is light and easy to carry around, whether you need to vacuum your car, some bits from your rug and it’s absolutely perfect for hoovering stairs.



Considering it is cordless and a light vacuum, it sucks up really well. It’s perfect if you have children or if you’re looking for a vacuum cleaner that’s great for everyday hoovering or pickering around such as cleaning the sofa. It has a 0.54 dust capacity, and it’s really simple to empty. Also included, is another tool extension that’s perfect for vacuuming furniture and corners.

PROS:
-          Lightweight
-          Portable
-          Comes with extra tool
-          Perfect for quick hoovering
-          Powerful
-          Cordless

CONS:
-          Takes 3.5 to fully charge – but if you put it on charge after each time you use it, you wouldn’t notice the battery getting out of charge.

Although I have been with my partner now for 7 years, trying to find the perfect gift for him is still a struggle. There are so many things out there to choose from, it’s difficult, never mind my partner being really fussy. Something you can’t go wrong with are gift hampers. Hampers.com have a fantastic range of hampers to choose from. Whether you are buying for your partner, friend for any special occasion such as Father’s Day, that’s just around the corner.

I was offered a hamper of my choice to review from Hamper.com , and I decided to choose the Port & Cheese Luxury Hamper for my partner as a Father’s Day gift. There was a wide variety of hampers, with reasonable prices and great products inside. They also have great range of Father's Day hampers at the moment. But the moment I saw cheese and port, I instantly knew that my partner would absolutely love this particular hamper.


Inside the hamper was a bottle of port, three different kinds of fresh cheese and a pack of crackers. Another reason I liked the look and sound of this hamper is that one of the brand cheese is from Snowdonia, which is near to where I live. When the hamper was delivered, it was all nicely presented in a wicker open gift basket.

You are also able to include a free personal gift message with your order which is perfect if you are looking to order a hamper straight to the person’s home – which would be a great and lovely thing to do ready for Father’s Day this year. You are also able to know when the hamper arrives, as you will get an email once it’s been delivered.

This hamper that we have received is £49 which is a reasonable price for the products that are included, the way it’s presented and the quick delivery.
