Naipo Shiatsu 3D Rotating Massager Review

I have suffered with back problems since I was 25, following a fall on a slightly inebriated night out in Marbella with the girls!  A distant memory of my carefree days just before I settled into married life.  My back has played up since then here and there, so I just have to remind myself  to be careful when lifting, bending or jumping about.

These days my main aches and pains come more from my neck and shoulders rather than my lower back, mainly a result to feeding and carrying Florence.  I’m often found cooking dinner with a child hanging off my hip, as us Mums know its hard to get through the witching hour without a small person attached to us.

Bluestone- Our Magical Elf Kingdom Adventure

We were fortunate enough to be invited to stay at Bluestone recently.  This is a park that we have had on our ‘to stay’ list as its tagline is ‘free range fun’ and so couldn’t be more perfect for our free range family ethos. Continue reading “Bluestone- Our Magical Elf Kingdom Adventure”

Flowers to your doorstep!

My Bloom & Wild experience has been blooming marvellous (sorry for the pun!) I always have new flowers in our home ready for the weekend and this occasion I had no fresh flowers so I promptly ordered these beauties at 4pm and they arrived as I was eating my morning porridge on Saturday. What a service!

The flowers are snugly packed in a recycled letterbox sized box.  The flowers are all cut, in-bud so they’re ready to be put in water. Inside the box they’re carefully wrapped, delicate flowers in little nets and roses trimmed of thorns. There are easy directions to follow to arrange and prepare them for your vase and after a good drink and 24hrs these buds blossom even more. I’m no florist but these blooms are so perfect that it’s pretty difffcult to not arrange them well.


My first flower order smelled lovely and they lasted for 12 days! Afterwards we enjoyed encompassing  some craft activities with the kids using the left over flowers for flower pressing and making potions and perfumes!

With my most recent order I have opted for some seasonal autumnal colours and I’m looking forward to other creations we can come up with to extend the flowers and/or upcycle the cardboard.

And to make it even better Bloom&Wild enclose further offers in your order as well as codes via email, making subsequent orders even more affordable.


I was sent these flowers as a gift to review, as always my opinions are my own and I have provided an accurate and honest review of this service and product.
