The first week of the Summer holidays...

and I somehow survived. Week one done & dusted, well almost. Today is Friday It's not over yet.
Tomorrow though the Mr. & I are going away together without the littles. Yay. This mainly occurred because the Mr is going on a boys holidays to Barcelona. Time without back up.... Time without me being able to threaten them with the words.... "You wait till Daddy comes home." Oh sigh.
This past week however has been lovely.
I somehow had forgotten just how 'full on' my children can be? Especially when they're together.
The arguments & the fighting. The house I'm trying to keep on top of the mess just because I know If I don't I'll cry.
I find it's easier to be out the house with them, they behave better & we're happier so we've had a busy week.
With:
Monday - Saw our friends Cavapoo puppy just 8 weeks old, then went for a walk on the downs link with another friend & her children. Went for lunch at the local cafe.
Tuesday - We did have a day at home I needed to clear the hedges (The fun) for our house to be re-painted on Wednesday. We watched a film had sofa cuddles & ate popcorn.
Wednesday - We met up with a friend at Buchan Country Park the lake was beautiful, both dogs played & we had a great day.
Thursday - We went to Fishers Farm park & it wasn't crazy busy even though the car park was packed! Yay.
Today Friday - We're off to FSW teddies bears picnic with my mums work.
 
I'm not sure when I'll manage the time to be back on the blog. I have a few reviews to post too. I'll get there & you must understand my smalls come first. I'm really enjoying having them both home.

The Summer Holidays

I'm going to be quiet on here. I'm so sorry! Life is crazy, my two need and want so much of my attention it just wouldn't be fair for me to spend my time on the laptop whilst they're all still awake.
We've also been out a lot as staying in just seems to make them both argue like cat and dog. We're not even a full week into the summer holidays yet... the weather has of course been interesting too.
We've had two days out resulting in very wet children with heavy down pours throughout the day.
We visited Fishers Farm on Friday & met up with some good friends. Yesterday (Sunday) we went to Hobbledown In epsom even in the rain we enjoyed a fab day with a mum & her family who I've known since before E was born & her son was born a few days before E.
Coco has been spoilt with her lovely Pawsome Box full of goodies.


I am enjoying having them both home with me, routine is all a bit out of sorts but thats pretty normal. Mr. H goes away next week on holiday so I might have some bored evenings that I can get some blogging done. Unless the children exhaust me & bed is more appetising of course.

Today we're off for a dog walk & lunch with some friends.

Sunday Family Fun-day Beach

Beach days are the best kind of days. 
Make up free, hair messy, casual clothes kind of best days. 
The sun was shining so we had an impromptu trip to the beach. 
My two love the seaside, they love the sea, playing with stones, or sand... this beach was rather stoney but didn't stop them enjoying themselves. 
H loves seeing how far the stones can be thrown. 
We can't wait for more beach days to come. We are only half an hour away & the drive is so lovely. 

Two more days of school runs yay! 
I'm so ready for 6 weeks with my smalls.

We enjoyed Ice creams together later.
I love family days out.

H is wearing Ralph Lauren top & Zara shorts

E is wearing a full Zara outfit

I love beach huts, they're so colourful & pretty.

Here's to more beach days.

Pure-Col Collagen Capsules | Review |


Pure-Col 100% pure collagen capsules.
This is a must-have companion to any anti-ageing regime or treatment programme. 

Beauty on the outside has to begin from the inside. 

Ok lets start by me explaining how it works.

It is scientifically proven that from the game of just 25+, our own collagen levels start to decline. So it makes sense to supplement this decline with a high grade, 100% pure collagen formula to help reduce the effects of ageing on the skin and body. 

Pure-col - is the culmination of over 20 years of research and development, manufactured under regulated, clean room conditions.

Pure-col - incorporates unique enhanced amnio acids which enables a greater absorption rate by the body. 

Pure-col - provides a safe, natural and effective alternative to invasive aesthetic procedures. 

Pure-col - compliments any anti-ageing regime or treatment programme. 

For the past 6 weeks I have been taking Pure-col capsules 
Three capsules a day. 
They say you should give the product 3-6 months to see and feel a difference. 
In just 6 weeks I have notice a huge difference. 

I'm in my mid twenties & I know I'm not 'wrinkly' however I really struggle *struggled* with my frown lines on my forehead. 
See picture.
After just 6 weeks I can definitely see a huge difference. 

My skin is feeling smoother, softer & my forehead is majorly less frown lined than it was. 
I have been wanting to use Botox for a while but the needles scared me if I'm honest. These capsules are amazing honestly I'm so happy with the results. 
On top of using the capsules I'm also using The Perfect Secret. 
Making my own face mask with Pure Col & the perfect secret.

All you do is :
Open 2 - 4 capsules into a small cup like an egg cup. 
Add 1 to 2 squirts of the perfect secret serum.
For best results mix together.

Relax for 15-25 minutes. 
The mixture will firm - refrain from talking! 
Wash off with warm water & pat dry. 
Moisturise like normal. 
Face will feel firm, soft & awakened. *I hope 


You can buy Pure Col Anti-Ageing pack depending on how many times you use the mask is a 2 to 3 week supply 1x Pure col collagen 90 capsules RRP £29.95 - an amazing price! 
So just £69.90 for all. 

On top of my skin feeling & looking fabulous. I myself am feeling great. 
As I enjoy jogging/running in my spare time my knees get quite painful however after a few weeks taking Pure Col capsules the pain in my knees has improved greatly. 
I'm looking forwards to what the next 6 or so weeks will be like for my body & skin. 
My nails are stronger & growing faster. I feel great!

If you want to feel great naturally then take a look at the Pure-Col Website.

Collagen Capsules can help to -

Address your beauty needs from within
Plum tired looking skin
Smooth fine lines and wrinkles
Improve hair quality for a lustrous shine
Strengthen nails.

Swimming Saturday Pavilions In The Park

Granted I don't take my children swimming enough, thing is we love swimming. My two haven't had swimming lessons however they're total water babies. 
On Saturday we took them to our local pool Pavilions in the park. 
Cost £16 for a family of four. (More expensive than Cranleigh Leisure Centre) but to be fair there is more to do at the Pavilions & they also have an outdoor part of the pool. E loved going outside. She still wears armbands (Swimbands to E) She's so confident about swimming now its so great to watch her. 
H has been amazing he actually wanted to float on his own & was doggy paddling around the pool. 
E went on the water slide with Dadda I couldn't believe it she is so brave. 
The Pavilions have recently updated their childrens area in the pool & it was great. My two really enjoyed it.
We must take them swimming more. 

Quickmax Eyelash Enhancer | Review |



Imagine. In just one week, you'll start to see the Quickmax difference.
When you look in the mirror, you’ll know you’re on the way to having eyelashes and eyebrows that are: 
1. Fabulously longer looking
2. Fabulously fuller looking
3. Fabulously expressive
I didn't really know what to expect if I'm honest, I've never used anything like this before. I have been using Quickmax for over a month & I can definitely see a difference. 
I have mascara on in both photos just one layer of mascara & the results are fabulous. 

At just Price only £49.00 who needs eyelash extensions when you can grow your own?

The main positives for me is now I don't need to waste time putting fake eyelashes on when I want that 'glam' look. 
Hey I can look good popping to the gym.  

I really love this product. 

It is really easy to use

Quickmax works while you sleep! I keep it next to my bed on my bedside table next to my cleanser & toner. 
Apply as you would an eyeliner. It's not tricky & you don't need a mirror. Repeat each night before you go to sleep. In the morning shower/was your face as normal. Then apply your usual make up. Apply it to your eyelashes and eyebrows - Or just your eyelashes (like I did) 
They Guarantee gorgeous results!

Our annual Pre-School Bocketts Farm trip 2015

Last week we went on our annual Preschool trip to one of the local farms.
Where has the year gone? 
Last year we had all four of us at the farm. It was fabulous!
This year it was just H & I then my Mum turned up for a bit of it. H was so excited to see his Nanna. 
He was mostly excited about the coach (Of course!) 
His little face. So excited.
Excited excited excited!

I think this must have been our forth year at Bocketts farm. Still as good as the first time we went. This is was kinda extra special because we were going with H, Just H... he wasn't the tag along with E. This was his school trip. Oh boy did he know it. He couldn't wait to get there. 

I think the farm has changed a bit in the past year, they've updated parts of it & made it bigger & better. 
He loved the bouncy pillow

H on the motorbike 

TRACTOR! Big red tractor. 2013, 2014 & 2015.



He wanted to take the goats home.



And the sheep.


Child friendly go-karts. He was a pro. 

The sun was shining & we had a fabulous day out. 


Coach ride home.
And.... fast asleep. Cutie.
E was gutted she had to go to school all day. We may have to have a Bocketts trip in the summer holidays. 

Yay to new Boots and bar *Talipes


After H broke his boots and bar about two or so weeks ago, all he has been asking about is "when can we go to hospital to get new boots mumma?" I was amazed that he wanted them so desperately. 
He's really turned a corner to actually wanting his boots on. He now finally understands how much his feet need them, that he doesn't want curly feet & wearing them isn't as hard as he first thought. (Also these boots ADM boots don't seem to put him through any major pain.) Bonus. 
He does still get knee aches and pains, he's hyper mobile throughout his body so I'm aware that his muscles and joints will be in some sort of discomfort more than normal. 
I wish I had recorded his little face when unwrapping the parcel that contained his new ADM boots in. He was so excited. 
He's promised to try not to walk whilst wearing them, we hope.... 
They're sturdy boots but these boots aren't made for walking. I think the reason for the past two pairs that have broken are because he walks around the house a lot. 
He put them on just before bed & he was so happy. 

Here's to onwards and upwards. 

Sunday Family FunDay Southwater Country Park's Dinosaur Island

We woke up yesterday morning & needed something to do. The weather didn't look great but we really wanted to check out the new Dinosaur Island, we also needed to walk the dogs, (Southwater Country park is perfect for doggy walking) 


Once there we followed the giant dinosaur footprints (How brilliant!)
Dogs aren't allowed in the play park so we took it in turns to walk the dogs around the main country park.
Theres so much for children (& big kids) to do.



We all had a fab day even in the rain! 


We can't wait to go back when its sunnier!
If you're stuck for things to do in the summer holidays. This would be a perfect day out with a picnic (Free Car park)
