A lockdown night in with Moonpig – AD

A few weeks ago I was invited, by Moonpig to spend the evening with them over zoom for a fun night in. Of course I said yes, although slightly sceptical about the idea as I grew tired of the zoom catch ups quite early on in lockdown. The evening turned out to be really fun & informative, even if flower arranging after cocktail making wasn’t … Continue reading A lockdown night in with Moonpig – AD

THE Eco pan – My Review #AD

Pre lockdown Prestige kitchenware got it touch to tell me about their new range launching, a collection of eco cookware that rivals the best pans on the market in it’s budget.

Don’t get me wrong, I love a themed few weeks in October where the majority of our activities are Halloween based & I love creating meals for our family with pumpkin & lots of sweet treats but what I don’t feel the need for is a mountain of cheap, throw away plastic decorations & costumes that every supermarket seems to put in our faces to … Continue reading A Natural Halloween

This little concrete looking oval fire pit comes with the easy-clean black bowl fitted & would look great in a traditional or rustic garden setting.
