Review: Dry:Soon 3-Tier Heated Tower Airer from Lakeland

Drying washing in Winter is the bane of my life. Actually, drying it in Spring and Autumn is the bane of my life too! Now that we have Daisy, who is 3, we have even more washing. Factor in a cat, dog and a turtle and we have a LOT of washing. Towels, bedding, clothes, etc etc.

For quite a few years we’ve managed drying clothes in a flat without a heated airer. Then finally I caved in. Back in December 2018, I decided to order us a *Dry:Soon 3-Tier Heated Tower Airer. Before I placed my order I asked a LOT of other parents I know online what they thought of them. The reviews were mixed, which made me feel a bit nervous about spending over £100 on the Dry:Soon 3-Tier Heated Tower Airer. However, I figured I would order it and if it was rubbish I could just send it back via Amazon! Anyway, here is it – my review of the Dry:Soon 3-Tier Heated Tower Airer.

Review: The Christmas Present by Alexander McCabe + a giveaway (AD)

AD. Christmas feels like such a magical time, more so this year. We have recently moved house and I’m even more excited for Christmas than normal. We will be able to decorate our house this year, including our garden, and Daisy is 3 so is the perfect age to buy into the magic of the festive season. Christmas can be such a busy time. Between the mad dash to find the perfect gift, the visits to various relatives and all of the activities it can almost feel a little non-stop. We will be taking time this festive season, every evening, to light an advent candle together and spend some time reading together before bed. I’m gathering a selection of books to enjoy in the evenings with Daisy, as part of our bedtime routine, and I just had to tell you about ‘The Christmas Present’ as it is absolutely beautiful!

Review: Schleich Bayala Glittering Moon Unicorns (AD – Gifted)

We received the items featured in this post in exchange for coverage. Daisy is 3 and as such, she is a big fan of small world toys. Anything that can combine real life with fantasy is a winner for Daisy. Being able to set her up a play area in her room is a great way to occupy her for up to 30 minutes at a time while I have a shower or complete jobs at home. We’ve already got a few Schleich toys, that Daisy loves, and now we’ve been sent the star pegasus, moon unicorn stallion and shooting star unicorn to test out. As we have recently moved house, and have more room for toys, this was perfect timing. Especially as I need to keep Daisy occupied for all the jobs that we need to do around our new house!

Review: Harry Potter Invisibility Cloak from WOW Stuff (AD – Gifted)

We received the item featured in this post in exchange for coverage. My nieces are HUGE Harry Potter fans, and as such I was practically bursting at the seams when I saw the Harry Potter Invisibility Cloak for the first time. I got to see the cloak, in all it’s glory, when I attended Blog On back in September 2019. The concept of the cloak is a simple one – cover yourself in the glorious cloak, use the Wow! Stuff app and then when you see the footage back you will have disappeared. Wow! See me using the Harry Potter Invisibility Cloak below!

Review: Santa’s Woodland Workshop at Centerparcs

My family are big fans of visiting Centerparcs. We have taken part in a number of activities in the past but one of our favourites, is visiting Santa’s Woodland Workshop. Our daughter Daisy was just 7 months old when we first visited. We have visited in 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019. Santa has been visited in Longleat, Woburn and Elveden by us, and we’ve been so pleased with this activity. We’re going back in 2020 and already have our slot booked!

This is our review of Santa’s Woodland Workshop. If you’re reading this as you’ll be visiting Centerparcs soon then be sure to check out what to pack for Centerparcs! Also, if you’re wondering how I can afford to visit Centerparcs so much it is because I get free holidays thanks to matched betting! I save up the money that I make through the year and use some of it to have lovely breaks with my family.

As you can see we were very excited to get inside! It was raining LOTS on of one the occasions that we visited but it didn’t dampen our spirits or stop us from having fun.
