Review – Compare the Market Home Insurance Website

Written by Lauren. Posted in Miscellaneous, Reviews

We all know I’m a little (lot) clumsy so you won’t be shocked to hear that the Hubby is extremely anal about Insurance. Obviously the car is done because that’s the law but after breaking my phone the Hubby started insuring those and after breaking the laptop he became a home insurance guru. We live in a house supplied by his job so in all honesty it wasn’t one of the first things that we thought about because all of the furniture was supplied by them and most of our possessions were worth less than the excess on most policies. Five years later we have made our house a proper home with things that would bankrupt us if we had to replace them should something horrible happen like a fire or a flood. With kids home insurance is also paramount because they draw on sofas, puke on laptops and generally cause havoc for the first few years of their lives!

Review – UltraViolet

Written by Lauren. Posted in Miscellaneous, Reviews

When I went to Britmums I spent an awful long time relaxing in the Warner Bros. lounge.  It was there that I discovered the wonder of UltraViolet.  With so many devices capable of playing movies our DVD’s were constantly getting lost or scratched somewhere between the laptop, the consoles and the portable dvd player.  We have purchased downloads on our phones to keep the Boys entertained in emergencies but it’s sods law that they don’t want to watch Peppa when that’s all we have.  UltraViolet solves all of these issues….

Guest Review – Party In a Box

Written by Lauren. Posted in Miscellaneous, Reviews

When the lovely people at Timeless Toys joined forces with Love Sweet Things and Flava Dance Studio to create Party In a Box they created the perfect set for the perfect party.  If you live locally Flava Dance Studio provide the location, Timeless Toys provide the decorations, accessories, party bags, party games (etc etc!) and Love Sweet Things can provide the Cake and scrummy party biscuits that grace every party bag.  If like us you don’t live locally they can still provide everything (except the location!) it just gets posted to you – genius!

Review – The Rug Doctor “What Lies Beneath” Campaign

Written by Lauren. Posted in Miscellaneous, Reviews

A few weeks ago we were asked to take part in the Rug Doctor “What Lies Beneath” campaign.  Rug Doctor were doing a study to find out just how dirty Britain’s carpets are.  More than 2000 people were surveyed along with 20 case studies in which they took swab samples of carpets from across the UK and water samples from a Rug Doctor after the carpet was cleaned.
