AD My Fairy Garden

We absolutely love the My Fairy Garden range, as soon as the box arrived my girls enjoyed opening the box to find Fairy Fenn and putting together her pretty house and picket fence, We then went to the shop to buy some soil, just a small amount is needed, the girls poured out the seeds and planted them with a bit of space around each one, We then placed soil on top, they watered them a tiny bit, for the first day we kept the My Fairy Garden out of direct daylight, thereafter on our conservatory table and watered a tiny bit every other day.

So exciting!

Beautiful House and Garden – So simple to put together and Fenn is lovely

My girls have loved watching the My Fairy Garden pea shoots grow day by day!

Growth happened quickly with the pea shoots

I couldn’t get over how quickly they grow, honestly each time I looked at the plant it had appeared to have grown more!

My Fairy Garden
So much growth, Excuse the shorter bits my Daughter snipped them to try!

My eldest then carefully used scissors to snip some of the pea shoots to try, She doesn’t normally like any kind of leafy vegetables but loved these!

Thank you My Fairy Garden and Wire Pr, My Daughter was even encouraged to try leafy salad and now enjoy’s pea shoots.

This is a great weekend activity with children age 3 years plus in my opinion, Great for little imaginations, My 3 year old talks to Fairy Fenn and takes her in and out of her house. Shutting and opening the little gate she is perched on.

AD Quinny Hubb

A few weeks ago, we received the Quinny Hubb, To start this blog post in my 6 years of having my children I have not used a travel system quite as convenient as this one.

The Quinny Hubb is new to the UK this year, It is amazingly versatile, comfortable and many configurations that grow with your family. A spacious, highly comfortable, stylish pushchair. Available with a flexible Duo accessory, the Quinny Hubb keeps adapting to your life.

So the Hubb has the option for parent or world facing, When my 3 year old Katie is at Nursery I will have Jake, my 10 month old baby facing me. So I can easily communicate with him. This means the large basket is easily available so that I can go shopping and put lots of bags underneath (don’t tell my Husband!) including Jake’s changing bag, in fact far more storage space than I have had with other pushchairs.

To set up press the grey button on the right hand-side then the one on the handle bar

The Quinny Hubb is really straightforward to put up when unloading from the boot of my car, just push the button on the side then on the handle and the chassis rises up. There are several options where you can slot either a car seat, another pushchair seat or the hop on bench. Then slot the seat in place it really is so simple! To release just hold the clasps on both sides.

The board slots in so easily, ensure it’s the second gaps

Because I also have a three year old I tend to leave the hop on bench slotted in place if I know I will have both of my children with me on a particular day. The hop on bench is an amazing addition, it doesn’t fall off like stand on buggy boards I have had in the past and is held in place really firmly. There is still space in the basket still. This pushchair is stylish yet really heavy duty and withholds pretty much anything life throws your way especially when out and about with more than one child, even up and down curbs.

Ready to go! No moans from my Daughter about having to walk too far as she can now have a rest

With 6 standard colour packages, there’s always a Hubb that suits your lifestyle, We went with the black because it matches our car and for us shows less day to day dirt, although I do love the colours available.

In the colder months there is also a foot muff available in various colours, We love the grey, It’s so soft and keeps Jake warm; meaning he can wear a lighter jacket on top rather than a full snow suit if the weather isn’t too cold.

I also love that when Jake is world facing in his seat, there is an extendable sun canopy (UV 50+) that has a convenient peek-a-boo window to keep an eye on your child when they’re facing away from you, Just the other day he awoke from his sleep and gave me a lovely smile through the peek-a-boo window. Plus the sun canopy can be pulled down quite far meaning your child is well covered on the warmest of days.

All in all I can honestly say this is my favourite of all pushchairs I have owned and that is quite a few! It just makes my life easier when out and about as any Mum of three knows is so helpful. I think knowing that Jake is comfortable and secure and Katie is in front of me safely on the bench, makes a far smoother ride plus the width of a single pushchair. I normally struggle with the set up of some travel systems and with this one I haven’t at all.

For any Parents expecting with one or more children, I would highly recommend because you can add a carry cot or car seat too. I have been kindly gifted this item by Quinny and Azaria Ltd, all opinions are my own.

AD Sleepover with The Dreamy Den Co

This time last week my Daughters and their Friend had a wonderful sleepover with The Dreamy Den Company.

So to introduce the The Dreamy Den Company are indoor and outdoor sleepover specialists catering for Birthdays, Hen Parties, Weddings and Corporate Events.

The Dreamy Den Company have all of their available themes on their website from Mermaid to Comic book! So something for everyone. Included is the sleepover den, mattress and sheet,blanket and cushion, fairy lights and bunting, themed den decor, tray table, personalised eye mask, drink bottle, popcorn cone. See their website for current prices.

In advance of the sleepover my Daughter was so excited to invite her friend, who on the day came home with us from School, We had a lovely takeaway pizza tea and awaited the arrival of the tents!

Kitty arrived and explained the process and started setting up the tents in the pink and gold theme chosen by my 6 year old.

In our front room we fitted three tents, they are a really good size and even I could fit in one. The girls at the sleepover were 7,6 and 3 years old.

Kitty carefully pumped up the mattresses and covered with a clean white sheet then popped the tents over the top and a soft blanket on top. She then decorated the tents with bunting, fairy lights and a dream catcher on each tent. Kitty then displayed very cool tables at the end of each bed with a glass of popcorn and a personalised eye mask which the girls absolutely loved and were able to keep.

When it came to settling down for the night the girls were very excitable wanting me out the way! When did they suddenly get so much older? They did eventually sleep at 11pm, then awoke in the morning very excited and wanting to tell me all about their sleepover. This experience really took me back to sleepover’s I had and went to as a child, I wish something like this had been around then! This would be absolutely perfect for a birthday treat for a group of children.

They had breakfast together then it was time to take the tents down ready for collection, the girls found this bit sad as loved the set up so much they didn’t want to say goodbye! Especially my 3 year old, she loved hiding in the tent with her Princess dolls.

Thank you Kitty at The Dreamy Den Company for a fabulous sleepover, My girls and their Friend had so much fun and haven’t stopped talking about it since.

The Sleepover tents and accessories were kindly gifted in exchange for a review. All opinions are my own. For more information visit www.dreamydens.com
