The Christmas Clean With Regina


Christmas, the most magical time of the year filled with lots of family time, festivities and yummy food. Like most parents, I am on the Christmas countdown and really looking forward to seeing my children's face's light up when they get that longed for toy, lazy days watching films together, visits with loved ones and all the festive build-up and activities that the big day brings. However, I am sure I am not alone when I say I am also feeling a bit overwhelmed by it all too as I still feel like I have so much to do and I haven't even started on getting the house in shape for Christmas yet.

Peter Pan Pantomime At Whitley Bay Playhouse Review

Last weekend we were invited to Whitley Bay Playhouse to see this year's pantomime, Peter Pan. Produced once again by Blue Genie Entertainment and starting Anthony Costa from Blue as Captain Hook and Playhouse legend Steve Walls as Smee along with last years favourite Ben Hanson (Bouncer in Tracey Beaker) as Starkey and lots of returning Playhouse panto cast members. We could not wait to see the show as we have really enjoyed previous years and it is the perfect panto for the whole family to enjoy.

Premier League Writing Stars 2018


Last year Premier League Writing Stars was launched and the competition was a huge success with over 25,000 entries so this year it is back and hoping to be just as (or hopefully even more) popular. This year the theme is diversity and primary school pupils are encouraged to get creative and write a poem on the subject of diversity and there are some great Premier League related prizes up for grabs for those taking part. 

The idea behind Premier League writing stars is to get primary school children interested in poetry and to have a go at writing their own poem. The fact that the campaign is backed by top Premier League football clubs that many young children support helps get some pupils interested, especially as they can win some amazing Premier League related prizes for their school by taking part in the poetry competition. Writing Stars is part of an educational program called Premier League Primary Stars, which is free for teachers to access and has lots of resources for key stage 1 and 2.

L.O.L. Surprise Pop-Up Store Playset Review

My five-year-old daughter Sophia is L.O.L crazy, she has been collecting L.O.L dolls for the past year getting them for her birthday or spending any money she has on them, she even spent her holiday money on when we were in Majorca earlier in the year! So it is no surprise that even more L.O.L Surprise dolls are on her Christmas list this year. She loves the surprise element of them and all the fun accessories that you get with the dolls (and pets), however, as the dolls and accessories are so small she often ends up losing the shoes and outfits for them. 

The L.O.L Surprise Pop-Up store set up out the box

So when we were offered to review the new L.O.L Surprise Pop-Up Store Playset I thought that would be perfect for her to store all her L.O.L dolls and accessories in. I had previously seen this playset in a shop and wrongly thought it was just a display case for L.O.L dolls, however, I was wrong as not only is it a display and storage case but it also turns into a little playset and you can also use it for transporting dolls too.
