Geomag Panels & Geomag Mechanics Review plus Giveaway!

Both of my children have a bit of a love for building things. Whether it’s knocking together something with lego or making something magnificent in Mincecraft, they are always building something. So when some Geomag sets arrived in the post, the kids were super excited. We were sent two sets: The 192pc Geomag Panel set from the classic range, and the 86pc Geomag Mechanics set. I hadn’t heard of Geomag before, but Neil knew what it was as he’d used it in school. He couldn’t wait to get stuck in and show his sister what he could build. Geomag Panel Set We got […]

Improve You Phone Photography with Three

I’ve loved taking photos for as long as I can remember. I used to spend my Saturday afternoons in the town waiting for my photos to get developed, and receiving my first digital camera for Christmas was a pretty exciting time for me. Back then, phones didn’t have cameras on them. I can still remember the first time one of my friends bought their first ‘camera phone’. We all stood around in wonder with this little Nokia being passed around. It had a vga camera on the back, not even 1mp, and took pictures so pixelated you could barely make […]

Win Autumn Wellies for the Family at Shoetique

It’s cool outside, but not too cold, which is why I much prefer an autumn walk over a winter walk. The freshness is invigorating! And when a walk is finished off with a large mug of gently warming hot chocolate and plenty of whipped cream, well, who […]

Trick or TREAT! Gears! Gears! Gears! Sweet Shop Review

Trick or treat, trick or treat, give me something nice to eat! I love Halloween, it’s so much fun. Pumpkins, spooky costumes, fireworks, I love it all. But my favourite thing about halloween is trick or treating. Why? Because I love sweets, and so do my children. Luckily in our village the response to ‘trick or treat’ is a big hand full of sweeties, when we went out last year my children came back with two full carrier bags each. Imagine the sugar rush we experienced that half term! In all seriousness though, we all know too many sweeties are bad […]

The Really Big Board Game Day Event & Giveaway with NSPCC NI

The NSPCC Northern Ireland recently contacted me about their ‘Really Big Board Game Day’ which is taking place on the 15th May, both in Northern Ireland and across the UK.   I’ve always been a massive fan of board games. I have many fond memories of playing Frustration and Uno Rummy and Othello with my mam, and I still remember being really disappointed that she would never play Monopoly with me (which was always my favourite.) I’m pleased that my children love board games as much as I do, and we often have a family board game night. Our favourites […]
