Candylocks Straw Mary Doll and Candylocks Surprise Doll Review

Does your little girl like coloured hair? This summer it has all been about bits of candyfloss hair colour in her hair. It's a great way to experiment without actually colour the hair. Now you can get some Candylocks dolls with the same type of hair. They come in a boxed set with some hair chalk and hair extensions or as a small surprise doll that comes with surprise bags. Tilly is 9 years old and she still likes doll's but she does like dolls with a difference.

Going To Amsterdam Pride

After Tilly really enjoyed herself at London Pride, I decided that I would take her to Amsterdam Pride. It was going to be slightly more expensive than London pride because we had to find a way to get there, but it was something that I really wanted her to experience. I asked her, and as Amsterdam is one of her favourite cities in the world, she said yes. She also knows that if we go to Amsterdam, it means a quick visit to her brother who lives in Zeeland area of Holland.

The Cube Houses Of Rotterdam

Whilst we were in Holland last week we found a bit of time to ourselves as my son Zach and my daughter in law had to go to work. Life isn't always a holiday for everyone! They live in a small town called Bruinesse and there is a bus stop but it's a fair walk from their home on a golf course that my son works at. So we knew if we were going to go out for the day, we had to get up early and be at the bus stop because Amber was going to drop us off.

Yumi-Yummy Bellies Doll Review

Tilly maybe 9 years old but she still loves to play with her dolls and The Bellies doll that she was sent to review and play with. There are four different Bellies dolls to choose from, they are called Pinky-Twink, Yumi-Yummy, Bobby-Boo and Muak-Muak. They have their own YouTube channel and although they are Spanish, it has been translated into English.


We were sent and Yumi- Yummy, she has 2 pink ponytails and only one of them has a band wrapped around it, which I thought looked odd. the doll is ugly in a cute way and her tongue is sticking out, adding to the cheekiness and she has huge purple eyes.

Cardiff Bay Cosy Club Brunch Review

Have you heard of The Cosy Club? I actually hadn't until I went to one in Cardiff recently after I was invited along for some brunch. The first Cosy Club opened in Taunton in 2010 and since then they have grown to 27 restaurants all over the UK. Each Cosy Club is different and is designed to fit in really well with the area. The Cosy Club that we visited was Cardiff Bay, so it was all decorated in the style of an old dock and with a shipping background. There was also a small touch of mermaids in there to fit in with Mermaid Quay. The breakfast menu is available until 5pm, so if you are looking for a late breakfast for a hangover cure or fancy a light breakfast for dinner, then this option is absolutely for you.

Travelling To Cardiff With National Express

The world really is your oyster! There is no need to think you cannot travel because of the cost or time getting somewhere. We decided to put a challenge to the test last weekend with National Express and took a weekend trip to Cardiff. You might not think this is a big adventure, but we actually live in a small seaside town outside of Dover and anywhere away from there is an adventure for us.

It’s the little things in life that make is the most happy

How Emmerdale Is Helping Me Understand Why My Daughter Is So Brainwashed

My daughter was groomed and brainwashed by a convicted paedophile in 2015. My whole world fell apart and my family was destroyed. It took a long time to put my family back together but it was hard knowing that my family isn't complete, and it won't be until my daughter comes home. I know that the whole grooming story has been followed on Coronation Street with Bethany and Nathan, but it never really followed the aftermath of the brainwashing. You see that's the part that I really didn't understand about the aftermath of my life. I find myself asking on a daily basis, 'why can't she get away from him?' But seeing it played out on tv has really helped me to understand it more and finally helping me to move on.
