Review: Lumo Stars

We’re big fans of plush toys here. On day trips and holidays we usually buy Daisy, our 2-year-old daughter, some sort of soft plush toy. They are simple to wipe clean, ideal for stuffing into a changing bag or overnight bag and they provide something nice to cuddle too. Daisy loves having soft plush toys to play with and has an entire basket of them in her play castle. Today I want to talk to you about Lumo Stars, a brand new range of cute and cuddly collectables that are due to hit the shelves this month!

When to repair and when to replace your car

*This is a collaborative post*. My husband and I have had our car for a few years now. It was already 10 years old when we purchased it. Our car has been in good condition since we purchased it and pretty much sailed through MOTs with no issues. Well, until the last MOT at least. Now we know that there is an expiry date for our car! Our mechanic advised us that a few issues are beginning and in another 1-2 years we were going to start experiencing costly repairs. Obviously this was a disappointment for us but also gives us lots of time to decide what we want to do. Today I want to talk to you about when to repair and when to replace your car. This is something that I’ve been mulling over for a few months now as we will eventually replace our car.
