Win a beautifully personal £140 Silver Locket for Mother’s Day

When we got married, budgets were running low (as they tend to do when weddings are in the planning) and I admit one of the last things on our to do list was ‘rings’. I know, I know, this thing was going to be decorating my hand for a very long time, and I maybe should have thought a little more about it. But actually, all I wanted was something simple and solid. One trip to a local jeweller, and we found two plain gold...

Honestly? I didn’t get it (or the Asus ZenBook Flip UX360CA Review )

When Asus sent me the ZenBook Flip (the UX360CA model, for those to whom the extra letters matter) I’ll be honest. I didn’t really get it. Oh, don’t get me wrong, I know why I love my tablet. I also know why I need a laptop. But a hybrid laptop? Why do I need something that can’t make up its mind (*whispers* and probably therefore ends up doing neither properly)?  On unpacking I was actually surprised –...

Oooh – bargain scarves! Joules have 25% off in their winter sale!

Come on, we ALL Love a scarf. No matter what you’re wearing or where you’re going, no matter what your body size or how bad your hair day, a scarf makes things better. Thin summer scarves can be picked up for a song all year round, but really good, soft, warm-but-not-drowning you winter scarves will often dent the pocket a little. So when I spotted that Joules have a cheeky 25% off some of their remaining winter range, I...

Heads Up! Glorious New Girls Kickers Are In!

It’s no secret we’re HUGE fans of Kickers – not only am I a big fan from back in the 80’s, but this is my girl modelling her first pair SEVEN years ago. We’ve been fans of Kickers as solidly reliable kids shoes ever since – they’re school shoes which are tough enough to withstand the roughest playground, but stylish enough to keep fashion-conscious tweens oh-so-happy. But even I, with my...

Review of the Graco Evo XT – one rather fabulous stroller #GenerationGraco

Last in our #GenerationGraco series is a review of the Graco Evo XT – a fabulously sturdy pushchair that appears to be perfectly suited to our rural lifestyle. Once unpacked, clipping the axle, wheels and basket into place was a doddle, and we were literally ready to roll within minutes. Even with all the fab pushchair testing we’ve done recently, this one created an immediate impressed face. It looks great, of course, but...

Looking for a last minute Ski Break? Here’s When To Go Where.

So Christmas has come and gone, and now you’re kicking yourself that you haven’t booked that ski break after all. First off – you missed out. January is often the very best month to go skiing, not least because no one else thinks of it either. If you have flexible holiday then January is a time to find some great snow and some great deals (and quieter mountains!). But if you’re looking at February, you probably...
