Charlie has become a fully blown bookworm since starting Year 2. The speed he can finish a book is quite astonishing and we are always looking for new content for him to get his hands on. We were sent two copies of Amazing! magazine which is an educational magazine based on the national curriculum. The old editor of the Horrible Histories magazine has just started working on the magazine so I knew instantly it would be a hit.  Amazing! is a monthly 36 page publication packed with articles, facts, stories covering subjects such as Maths, English, Science, History and makes…

Just before Christmas I was sent a Polar Loop 2 to try out. I knew that 2016 was hopefully going to be my year of change and so far so good. I have joined Slimming World and started running so it’s been good to have an activity band to help motivate me and keep track of what I am doing each day. I will be doing more updates on my progress so keep your eyes peeled but for now I have exciting news. I am able to give one lucky Twinderelmo reader the chance to win their very own Polar…

Love is in the air as Valentine’s Day approaches and with the theme of all things Cupid, hearts and flowers I have been working with the wonderful jewellery company Lily Charmed again. If you remember I got to try out a beautiful cupcake necklace from them back in November. I have now been lucky to be sent this gorgeous polished silver angel wings necklace. As always, it comes in it’s trademark gift box with personalised message that you can choose yourself. My necklace came the next day in discreet packaging in case it’s a surprise for a loved one!

Back in October, we were sent some awesome Snazaroo goodies to try out over Halloween. It was so much fun practising and trying different looks and we have still got loads left to use. Let’s face it – January is pretty boring so I’m going to try to make it a bit more colourful and am giving away FIVE packs of the Snazaroo Ultimate party packs. Maybe your little one has a party coming up, or you could score some top parent points by inviting a few friends over and having a mini party where face painting is the main attraction.…

My Gran always told me that the one thing you should never scrimp on was good cooking equipment. I have learned the hard way that she really is right! Quality definitely lasts and it’s important to be able to rely on good sturdy pots, pans and dishes to see you through the many meals that I have to prepare for the kids. With the colder weather coming, hot dinners will be on the agenda every night and I love good hearty old fashioned proper grub. With all this in mind, when we were asked to review a ceramic casserole dish…
