The Elf on the Shelf

Written by Lauren. Posted in General

Last year we bought into the craze that seems to be sweeping houses in every corner of the globe.  The boys didn’t really “get it” so it was a bit lack lustre but this year as December crept upon us the excitement from the Boys motivated me to make a proper effort with the Elf.  In fact our one Elf became 3!  I decided that it would be more fun with multiple Elves and a lovely lady on a Facebook group made a Tutu for our girl and my parents and I spent an evening performing surgery to wire up their limbs.  After much deliberation they were named Snap, Crackle and Pop!

Our final review product as a Tidy Books Ambassador is their flagship product, the Bookcase.  The bookcase was designed by the owner of Tidy Books, Geraldine, in her violin workshop when she couldn’t find a suitable bookcase for her children.  It is designed for children with rounded corners and wall fixings along with the standard Tidy Books non-toxic, eco-friendly water lacquer.

Written by Lauren. Posted in Miscellaneous, Reviews

Music has been a big part of my life since I was a child.  We are premium subscribers to Spotify because it makes it possible to play the music that we want to listen to everywhere.  At the gym, in the car, in the house, on the school run anytime, anywhere at least one of us is plugged in to Spotify.  Our playlists are available to us no matter what device we are on.
