With Christmas closing in fast, what about buying a gift that keeps on giving? Continue reading
Urban Graphic: street cred for your desk!
Stationery. You either love it or you don’t. Me, I’m a big fan. I head out at the start of each year and purchase a diary and some cool notebooks. This year I added a funky pencil case and stunning sticky notepads to the list for my desk at home. I’m always picking up bit and bobs. I like to think it makes me feel organised while trying to manage home and work life! Continue reading
Make & Create – creativity boxes
Ask any 7 year old boy if they’d like to make slime and the answer is more often than not going to be a big yes! But what if it’s not just your standard slime? What if it’s magnetic slime? Most kids would also jump at the chance to do art and craft but who has time to pull together all the materials together? Continue reading
Nerf – not just blasters!
It’s quite stereotypical to associate blasters, water guns and cars with boys. My boys received a NERF blaster and water gun each for Christmas last year and they love them. And I’m not meaning to be stereotypical but my boys also like cars and anything that blasts off. So… Continue reading
Review: SodaStream Power
Party season begins in November for us. The amount of birthday parties and social gatherings increase dramatically. And with summer, and the heat, around the corner it’s time to come up with thirst quenching ideas without the hit of sugary drinks. Continue reading
Photographs – to print or not to print? Review: Pocket Prints
Photographs. Does anyone print them anymore? I love them – photographs are valuable to me. They are a moment in time. I’ll put a photo frame up in any space I can find, much to my husband’s dismay at times! But these days I tend to take a photo with my phone, eventually upload it to our hard drive and forget about it. Continue reading
There are many kid’s collectibles out there – Shopkins, Littlest Pet Shop, My Mini MixieQ’s and Ooshies to name a few. And now there’s a new one for the kids to get excited about – Splashlings. Continue reading
Review: Playbrush – A game of toothbrushing
Life as a parent can be exhausting. When it comes to getting children to brush their teeth it can sometimes be a struggle that I’m sure most parents would happily live without. Going through the (arduous) process twice a day which includes asking for teeth to be cleaned, repeating the request, ordering that teeth are to be done, shouting ‘Why aren’t your teeth cleaned yet?’ is enough for any parent to throw in the towel. Continue reading
Canberra – for kids and adults (part 1)
I’m finally putting down words about our trip to Canberra. But as I was writing this post I realised there is just too much information for one post so I’ll break it down into parts. With term 2 school holidays coming up and work being busy in the lead up, we decided to get out of Sydney for a few days and try to have a break. I always say it’s never a holiday with young kids but a change of scenery can do wonders for the soul! Continue reading
