I love the colder weather it’s the perfect reason to wear chunky knitted jumpers and scarves. My husband also loves to wear knitted jumpers too, so when Dobell got in touch and asked if I would like to do a review for them, I said “yes please!” And headed straight for their jumper section. I knew that I would find the perfect jumper for my husband on their site, and I was right. The Navy Lambswool Jumper is simply gorgeous.
As you can imagine, I use my phone a lot. It is constantly within reach for most of the day – though I do try to have it on silent and away for certain times during the day, especially when I am playing with my daughter. And with a 4 year old who loves to borrow my phone, along with the fact that I have issues with my hands, it gets a bit of a rough deal. My rose gold Samsung S7 Edge is gorgeous, but if I don’t have a sturdy phone case on it, I am not sure how long it would last! I used to have a personalised phone case on my old phone and I did miss having one for my latest phone.
It’s so wonderful to see how well my daughter adapts to new technology, I can’t believe that at 4 she is able to navigate her way around a tablet and even a laptop for certain games too. We don’t do lots of screentime, but it is a part of our lives and I think that in moderation it’s an amazing thing. So when I was asked if we would like to take a look at the LeapPad Ultimate, I agreed (and decided it would make the most wonderful 4th birthday pressie for my daughter.)
We spend so much time outside these days, with puddles to be stomped in (and snowmen to be made) we also have balance bikes and scooters to be zooming on as well. My daughter loves her balance bike, though she is excited to get a bike with pedals when she is a little bigger. So when I was asked if we would like to try out the Mini Hornet I knew it would be a hit.
There are so many great toys out there right now, and I have had a bit of trouble choosing which ones to get my daughter for her birthday and Christmas. I want toys that last and I want toys that are good value for money too. I always want a range of different toys so she can practice lots of different skills and learn in different ways. But most importantly so she can have lots of fun, and find out what she enjoys doing.
