MOKURU Desk Toy Review and Fun Introduction

I was recently asked to review the MOKURU and as my children have just started a YouTube channel on which they love to review toys I really couldn’t say no!

The MOKURU is a wooden desk toy from Japan that is set to become the latest craze amongst adults and children alike.

Hatchimal CollEGGtibles Mystery Puzzle Review

When I was recently offered the opportunity to review the latest Hatchimal CollEGGtible toy I couldn’t refuse. My children, Annie 8 and Freddie 5, adore any toy that comes in an egg or is a mystery so this range is right up their street.

The latest edition to the range is a 48-piece puzzle and matching character which of course comes inside an egg. This is our review and we have also made a YouTube unboxing and first impression video, see below.

Kelly’s World Week’s 12, 13 and 14

Welcome back to my diary series, starting 22nd May 2017 up until today, Sunday 11th June.

In these diaries, I welcome you into my life and talk about blogging, my health, my diet, exercise and life in general.

I can’t believe I’ve gotten so behind with these posts, you would normally get a diary post each week but today you are getting three in one. It’s been a challenging few weeks. With highs and lows in life and blogging.

I’m not even sure how to write this one or where to start so I’m just going to type and see what happens. I think the best posts are often those where I just ramble and don’t change it too much once it’s written. It’s more real, raw if you like. So here goes.

Kelly’s World / Diary Week 9

Welcome to week nine of my diary series, starting from May 1st 2017.

The Best Version Of Kelly

What happened to week eight I hear you all shout. My last diary post covered weeks six and seven, or so I thought. I had already done week six so the last one was actually weeks seven and eight. None of you noticed my error (tut tut.) It’s now been rectified, if I hadn’t changed it then it would have bugged me forever!

Why did numbering them seem like a clever idea?!

First things first, I really need to buy a diary and make notes as doing this from memory is not very reliable! It’s all true but I probably miss plenty of stuff out. Have you ever tried to buy a current diary in May? Don’t, all you will find are academic ones and they don’t start till August. (rolls eyes at self) I need to just write in a notebook don’t I.

Here goes then from memory.

4 Nights at Haven Allhallows

Haven Allhallows

On Easter Monday we drove down to Kent for our annual visit to a Haven caravan park. We've been going each year since Annie was born and have visited sites in Dorset, Norfolk and Lincolnshire. This was our first trip to Kent. 

The Kent Haven is situated in Allhallows on the estuary of the river Thames. The site is smaller than some yet manages to fit in just as many amenities and activities. It's a pretty, clean and well presented site with great views out across the estuary.

Something I Haven’t Told You Yet and What I Have Achieved on This Journey So Far

I started this blog on New Year’s Day to chart the changes I want to make in my life this year.

I have many reasons to make changes. I suffer with depression, anxiety and chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS). I have also been dealing with a serious fear of judgement.

This post will update you on how I am doing with those changes and also let you know something I haven't shared yet.

Kelly’s World and Diary (Weeks 7 and 8)

Welcome to week’s seven and eight of my diary series, starting Monday 17th April 2017.

You’re getting two for one this week as I decided last week to award myself a week off from blogging. Much as I adore blogging, I have been posting pretty much three times a week for four months now and I just felt I needed a break to give me some space to get caught up in a few other areas of life.

A Cocktail Masterclass

A couple of weeks ago I was invited over to Nottingham with 11 other bloggers for a cocktail masterclass. I certainly didn't have to spend long deciding whether to go or not! 

We got to spend two hours sat on the terrace of Nottingham bar Brass Monkey in the sun drinking cocktails and chatting with Nick Fox, a cocktail expert who launched the Loves Cocktails festival in Leeds in 2013.

The Best Nachos Ever, Dr Pepper Marinated Pork and Lots of Tequila

A couple of weeks ago my husband Ross and I were invited to the new menu launch event at Bodega in Leicester. Having been to the restaurant before we knew we had to attend. We both love Mexican food so Bodega is right up our street.

Kelly’s Diary Week 6 - Including Blogging Fun, School Holiday Fears and the Queen

Welcome to week six of my diary series, starting Monday 10th April 2017.

I’ve had only positive feedback on these diaries so far so hopefully that means you’re all enjoying them. I will still aim to improve them each week. 

For a start, I currently write this from memory, making notes during the week would probably be a better idea! I also need to learn how to edit my pictures (insert laughing emoji!)

Mexican Beef Burger Recipe Using The Hackit

I have wanted to share my Mexican burger recipe with you all for a while now and so when 2tech got in touch with me and asked if I would like to review their latest product launch, the hackit, I knew it would make perfect sense to combine the two.
