An Evening With Moonpig At A Virtual Event

AD | Gifted items and event attendance  Earlier this week I attended my first ever virtual blogging event. Moonpig very kindly invited me to celebrate their birthday with them and to discover some of they things that they offer. Having never attended a virtual event like this before I really wasn’t sure what to expect and to be honest, I was a little nervous about it. However, I really want to push myself and try new things and also, it sounded so different and fun. On the run up to the event, over the course of a few days, Moonpig

Great Gifts For Men That You Can Find Online

AD | Includes gifted item and affiliate links (marked with *)  We live in a small town with only a few shops, the biggest probably being Sainsbury’s. We’re a non-driving family too so popping to our nearest city (Norwich) isn’t that easy, unless we want to get a train or bus, which isn’t ideal at the minute. With John’s birthday coming up soon it got me thinking about the different gifts you can buy online and I wanted to share some ideas with you. buyagift is a site we have used so many times over the last few years. If

Educational Toys From BrightMinds

AD | Paid collaboration When it comes to buying Christmas presents it’s easy to stick to a list if your child has written one, or to pick things that just look really fun. As Erin’s birthday is only 7 days after Christmas she ends up with a lot in a really short space of time. Because of that I have been looking for some educational gifts for her and I found so many options on the BrightMinds website. For a long time Erin has been interested in anything medical. Once she hurt her ankle and needed an x-ray and was

Preparing For A Party With PoundToy

AD | We received a voucher to spend on PoundToy for the purpose of this post.  With Erin’s birthday being just a week after Christmas there is a lot going on in a really short space of time. I always try to get things organised early but honestly, party planning really isn’t my thing. Erin hasn’t had a birthday party since her first and I don’t really know what I’m doing. Having booked the venue a while ago, the next biggest thing to think about was party games and prizes for the games. A website I had heard really great

Toy Shopping With Wicked Uncle

AD | Gifted  Living in quite a small town we don’t have many options for buying things like toys and activities for Erin. We don’t have a toy shop apart from the section in the local supermarket and looking at certain shops online can be a bit like finding a needle in a haystack. Unless you know what you’re looking for then it’s hard to search for things for inspiration. I certainly don’t always know what I want to buy for Erin and I also don’t know what other children her age might be playing with. We recently tried out a

Testing The Toys For A Pound Kids Toy Generator

AD | Paid collaboration with Toys for a Pound I don’t know about you but with the summer holidays getting closer by the day I am worrying more and more about what I’m going to do to keep Erin occupied. It’s one thing to think of things to do at home but then we also have downtime on days out to fill and making sure we do some kind of activities to keep up with what Erin was doing at nursery. The summer holidays cost enough for days out and treats without having to think about paying a fortune for

Father’s Day Shopping At intu Chapelfield

AD | Gifted items When it comes to occasions like Christmas or birthdays shopping online might seem like the most convenient way to buy gifts. For me though, nothing beats heading into the city and browsing in real shops. Online shopping doesn’t have the same feeling or result as a lot of the time you only search for things you know you already want. intu Chapelfield armed me with a gift card and challenged me to do some shopping with them to find John some great gifts for Father’s Day! I decided to have a really good look around intu

My Favourite Charity Shop Bargain

We live in a smallish town in North Norfolk and although we’re only 30 minutes away from Norwich by train, I don’t get into the city much. This means that, as well as a lack of money, I don’t go shopping much at all. Something we do have where I live is quite a lot of charity shops though. I think we have at least 6 or 7 in our market square and they’re great to have a rummage in. I have one favourite thing that I’ve bought locally and it really is a charity shop bargain! One day, I
