As this post goes live I will be just setting of to Lanzarote for a little winter sun and to find out exactly what the region has to offer families. Woohooo, check out my stories to see what I get up to! And if I am brave enough to ride a camel?
This week has been a fab but busy week getting back into the School routine and preparing for a weekend away.
I am getting so into Sweet Little Lies, it was slow to get into but OMG my heart is in my mouth every time I read it now. I literally have no idea which way it is going to go.
Woolly hats and coats, how cold has it been this week? However I do love a cold frosty day.
The Snowman at the Opera House in Manchester, oh my I just loved the film as a little girl and always have. The show was every bit as magical. If not a bit more! I came away with the hugest grin on my face I just adored it from start to finish.
A lot of delicious frothy coffee’s and hot chocolates with my new coffee machine. I did have a coffee machine but it did not have a milk frother. OMG this is a game changer; the boys are loving making frothy hot chocolates when they get home from school and work. Especially now the weather has changed so dramatically. It’s also such a treat being able to have a cafe style coffee at my desk. And I can make it with skimmed milk woohoo. Seriously I don’t think I would get through some days without coffee. I honestly can’t tell you how giddy I am about this machine.
The laughter of Jack and Joe playing together! Seriously this NEVER happens. But last week Joe and I tested out the Anki Overdrive. It is a super swanky racing car game, which you control from an app on your mobile phone. It’s an amazing family game and game for teens. The boys both played with this for hours, at one stage Jack and his girlfriend were racing against Joe and his friend. Honestly Chris and I could not believe our eyes. Joe and I unboxed and built it on Friday and Joe was still racing on Sunday.
I love that it is a physical game as so much is geared around consoles these days. Don’t get me wrong I don’t have an issue with consoles at all. But they got so much enjoyment playing the Anki Overdrive and Joe already has more cars on his Christmas wish list. It was lovely to see the boys playing together and finding a game that brings the whole family together. Check out our little unboxing vlog and see how quick and easy it was to set up.
Oh wow this week I tried It Cosmetics Hero Collection and I love it. I am a total make-up geek. I spend a fortune on it and am always looking for my new make-up bag fave. I might be a little addicted to QVC and they didn’t disappoint with this great offer.
The Bye Bye Undereye concealer is a game changer it’s INCREDIBLE. I have used the same brightener for years and always been happy but this gives so much more coverage.
The whole collection is fab but another fave I can’t not mention is the Brow Powder I have such thin eyebrows. That’s what happens when you are an apprentice in a hair and beauty salon and everyone practices eyebrow shaping on you! I feel so much more confident using this and it stays.
Have a great weekend that ever you are up to and wish me luck riding that camel eeek!
