My name is Lily-Sue, but my mummy calls me Munchkin (or 'Munch' for short!) I am 8 years old, and this is where my mummy will help me write all about all the fun things we do together. I hope you enjoy reading about the adventures of my mummy and me, Munchkin, with the occasional appearance from the siblings - Beastie and Plumlet.

Elf on the Shelf ... Is it for me?

If you're asking yourself the above question, read on!

Rewind to November, 2014. Munch was 5, Beastie 2 and Plumlet was nearly 1. A large supermarket chain, funnily enough - one I don't regularly use - started offering (in true "you need this" style) this ...

Cute, yes? In 2014, the Elf on the Shelf craze hadn't really taken hold of the UK. It was, at that time, a very American idea but was starting to creep into British households, slowly. I'd heard of it, and the idea made me smile.
The Elf on the Shelf tradition has been popular in the US for a few years now. The idea was that, on Thanksgiving, one of Santa's Elves would visit the homes of children far and wide to keep a watchful eye over behaviour, and to ensure each one belongs on Santa's 'good list'. Over time, this idea developed slightly, and these elves started to move around, causing mischief and confusion around the house. The Elf would then disappear home on the evening of Christmas Eve, often leaving some sort of  'behaviour evaluation' for the children on their departure.

Over the years, Elf on the Shelf has gone from being a national tradition to being a worldwide phenomenon, with households around the globe joining in the fun, with many documenting their stories across social media.
I thought about it more, and mentioned it to The Man. He smiled too, which obviously meant it was a perfect idea, right?

Read on ...

With all 3 kids at such an age where Christmas magic is in full swing, all fantastical beliefs are unscathed and, as a parent, you want to Stoke that fire of imagination at every given opportunity, the whole Elf idea was becoming more and more appealing!

1st December, 2014, a visitor came to stay.

The kids named him Doodle.

Doodle wasn't a mischievous Elf. Well, not really. He'd mess with their toys occasionally, but as a rule, he was a fun, kind Elf. He'd bring treats and gifts (such as activities to do and daily letters) and the kids would get really excited every morning, dashing downstairs to see what Doodle had been up to. As Christmas Day drew closer, I won't lie, the nightly ideas didn't come easy and the pressure I put onto myself to 'think of something better than yesterday' became tiring at times. But it had been fun. He even made a big fuss of Plumlet's December birthday which they all enjoyed. The kids had absolutely loved it and had grown, in that short 24 days, to totally adore Doodle. On the evening of Christmas Eve, as the children showered, a Christmas Eve box appeared under the tree. This was a gift from Doodle to say thank you, and contained new pyjamas, a book, some hot chocolate and a little sweet treat. It also held a Magic Key for the kids to place outside so Santa could open the door and some magic dust for the reindeer (just oats and glitter)

There were tears when he left!
Doodle was packed up, safely, in our secure Christmas box, and hidden away for next year.

1st December, 2015 and 2016, Doodle returns.
Kids are ecstatic to see him.
All goes well. Kids have fun whilst I slowly lose the will to ... well, anything really, but it's all worth it for the children, right?

I'd say we reached, roughly, 15th December, 2016, when I started referring to the Elf as the Stuffed Intruder and cursing his imaginary, warped existence. Every evening, as the kids settled in bed, The Man would bring me my bag of craft supplies, and placed them next to me (rather sheepishly as the month went on) before backing away quickly and attempting to avoid my hateful glare. Still, we saw it through, with success, to 24th  December. Once again, the kids were sad to see him leave. They were definitely more disappointed than me!

Again, he brought pyjamas and the other treats in the form of a Christmas Eve box.

Once more, as the tree and the decorations were taken down, Doodle was packed away safely ...
Somewhere ...

As we approached 1st December, 2017, The Man ventured into the loft to retrieve the box of decorations so we could get Doodle ready for his eagerly anticipated arrival. There was more than one box, and we weren't 100% sure which one he was hidden in. Munch had helped to take the decorations down in 2016, so I remembered we had to engage ninja mode when putting him away as she was taking it upon herself to inspect every single item that was placed in the boxes.

Every box was emptied, but no Elf.

Panic starts ... 
1st December draws closer ... 
House is searched numerous times ... 
Search the internet for a replacement, but cannot find one in stock anywhere ...
1st December arrives ...

Doodle's exploring the world! But it's ok, because he's sending postcards, right? In fact, he's even thinking of their education, because he chooses destinations that have been fundamental to their current everyday learning. Doodle rocks, yeah?

Nope. Doodle should be here. Doodle has had all year to travel the world and should now be on our shelf. We don't want Doodle's postcards ... We want Doodle.

As if I didn't feel like the most awful mum in the world. There were tears, there was genuine disappointment every morning when they were presented with yet another postcard.

Meanwhile, I'm literally pulling my hair out, searching for this sodding Elf! Eventually, I find one on a very popular auction site. Its brand new, identical to Doodle, and at a good price. To be honest, most prices would have been a 'good price' by this stage. I was desperate! I contact the seller, pouring my heart out and manage to persuade her to change her delivery time from 10 days to next day. The sense of relief was immense. Doodle was coming home! The Man returns from work and I gush about my day's triumph, just as he hands me a box. Not just any box. No. This was a special box, because this box had been completely missed when he was removing the boxes from the loft.

You know where this is going!

The Man backed away, sheepishly, again. Not 3 hours ago, we'd had no damn Elf. Now we have 2.

Close friends and family that had been aware of our Elf Dilemma reassured me with the notion that we "now have a spare ..."

A spare?! Do you honestly think I'll ever need a bloody spare?! No, this thing is being fitted with a kick ass GPS tracker and nailed to the inside of a wardrobe!! 

Doodle returned the following morning, bearing gifts he had collected from the countries he'd visited. Ingredients to make pizzas from Rome, castanets (and chorizo for the pizzas) from Spain, Disney DVDs from Disneyworld ... All was good with the world again.

'Decoy Doodle' arrived.

Being the glutton for punishment that I probably am, I decided to get creative. A bit of wool for hair, a couple of bits of ribbon tied into bows, a bit of green felt

and the decoy became ...

Doodle's best friend whom he met whilst he was gallivanting around the world. 

I felt I had kind of repaired the disappointment caused by Doodle's delayed arrival, as the kids were so happy to see her. Doodle continued to write them a new poem every day, encouraging their excitement as Christmas approached.

Then, following a few moments of total madness, one morning, the kids came downstairs to this ...

Ok, so Plumlet has a December birthday. Not just December. The 23rd - right on top of Christmas. By the time his special day arrives, the girls are so excited about Christmas, his birthday seems to get forgotten a little, as I'm sure is the case for many who have a late December birthday. Therefore, I wanted something that would still celebrate the excitement of Christmas, but would also remind the girls each year that Christmas isn't the only important celebration we have in December. I figured if they had something else to look forward to on that day, then they wouldn't forget about the birthday excitement. So, on the 23rd December every year, Plumlet's birthday Elf, Gingerbread, will come to visit for a couple of days.

In summary, we begin the month of December with no Elf to sit on the shelf ... and on Christmas Eve, we said goodbye to three of the little buggers!!
The kids have loved it. Me? I'm questioning my sanity and contemplating whether or not we need a bigger shelf ...!

Still wondering whether Elf on the Shelf is for you?

Of course it is! What could possibly go wrong?!

Baby Secrets is here!

The world is going crazy for collectibles!

I think Munch was about 3 when she first discovered collectibles. She found herself with 2, then 3, then 4 ... and just like that, she was hooked! Collection progress gets marked off, a list of 'duplicates' starts to form and the container that stores said collectibles gradually increases in size to accommodate the growing contents!

Collectibles and the idea behind them seems to attract a variety of opinions. Some positive, from people who can't get enough of the thrill of the find and who have no problem with their children mildly obsessing about the latest craze, whilst others will avoid them entirely. I have to say, I am with the first group, and it's a good job really, as boy, do my kids love a collectible!

And, there is a new collectible in town!

Prepare to enter a world full of cute babies with unique personalities!

Today, Baby Secrets, the latest collectible to hit the shelves of the favourite High Street stores, will take its place in the much loved collections of so many children.

This particular collection is brand new on our scene in the UK and brings exciting little characters boasting big personalities, and each personality is simple to identify. From a painter with his paintbrush to a party lover complete with a sash and party hat, each one comes ready to share their own secrets. Discover the cutest and cheekiest babies in town ... who will be your favourite?

These little toys are hidden away, in true collectible style, inside their own unique packaging. And to add to the fun, the packaging plays an essential part in the playing too. The little character comes tucked inside their own little bath tub, together with a birth certificate to complete and, of course, a collectors guide so that you can keep track of your collection.

The kids couldn't wait to break into their Baby Secrets tub to find out who they had. And none of them were disappointed. 

Munch had the Baby Cook in her tub. This little character is wearing a bowl as a hat, in true baby style, and comes clutching a spoon. According to the Collectors Guide, the Cook Baby is one of the common characters.

Beastie is delighted with her Baby Secrets. Her baby has 3 crayons their pocket, so she has decided hers is a 'Doodle' Baby. She is really pleased to know that her character is on the ultra rare section of the Collectors Guide, so she feels very lucky!

Finally, Plumlet found Party Baby inside his tub. This character is listed as rare and is wearing a party hat and sash. 

The girls were desperate to find out if their babies were boys or girls, so immediately set to filling their bath tubs with cold water. To find out the gender of your Baby Secrets, you just sit them in their bath filled with cold water and watch as the colour of their nappy turns from the usual white to either pink or blue. Once you know, names can be chosen and their individual little birth certificate can be filled in.

As soon as the nappy area dries completely, the colour returns to white again, ready for their next bath time!

Every Baby Secrets comes with their own Collectors Guide which lists all of the characters available within the current series. Series 1 consists of a common, rare and ultra rare category but also contains an extra special limited edition character. I'm almost certain the kids will want to collect Baby Secrets now in a race to get their hands on that ultra special baby!

Because, that's Collectibles!

The full range includes the Baby Secrets Single Pack and the Baby Secrets Activity Pack. I know that the single packs are going to be really popular with my girls, because with an RRP of just £2.99, they are the perfect pocket money collectible. They are a great way to get a good collection started, and great for us parents for when we want to buy that little, inexpensive, mid-term reward for academic achievements and good behaviour!

Then, the ideal addition to birthday lists would be the activity packs. With an RRP of £12.99, they come in 4 different varieties; 

Pram Pack
Bassinet Pack
High Chair Pack
Rocking Horse Pack

These packs come complete with two exclusive babies, one surprise baby, a bath tub, three birth certificates, a collectors guide and the special accessory appropriate to the chosen pack.

Which one will you get?

Baby Secrets is now available from The Entertainer, Smyths Toys, Argos and Toymaster. For more information about Baby Secrets and to keep up to date on the range, make sure you bookmark Baby Secrets HQ at www.babysecretshq.co.uk

We were sent some Baby Secrets for the purpose of this review. No other payment was received, and all opinions are our own.

Disney on Ice Passport to Adventure

Take us on an adventure we'll never forget!

December, 2016 saw me sharing an amazing experience with the girls. An experience that they still talk about today. We were lucky enough to be part of the audience for Disney on Ice - Frozen. The show was outstanding and the atmosphere was electric. I remember as a child attending Disney on Ice (or the equivalent they offered back in the *ahem* eighties!) I still recall the magic today, so it is definitely an experience that stays with you. The girls still stare at the photos with smiles on their faces, reminiscing about the magic they watched unfold on the ice.

Little do they know that they are about to experience it all over again!

From Wednesday, 20th until Saturday, 30th December, 2017, the magic of all our Disney favourites are being brought to the O2 in a whirlwind of adventure and wonder. Join classic faves Mickey and Minnie as they take you on a tour of the imagination, meeting some of the most loved characters along the way.
From exploring the African Pride Lands with Simba, Timon and Pumbaa, to flying to neverland to 'Tinker' with some fairies, the talented cast and incredible crew work together flawlessly to promise an unforgettable and truly magical day out. 

Last year's performance was amazing, and you can read our full review of the show here, but I just know this year is going to be even better. The appearances of such a variety of characters is going to make this a show for the whole family - boys and girls ... young and not so young. 

So, if you haven't already, hurry up and get your tickets for Disney on Ice Passport to Adventure, because if previous shows are anything to go by, you're in for a real treat. 

With the perfect combination of highly professional, effortless ice dancing, breathtaking special effects and lighting and a soundtrack that will have you humming for days, I am so excited to be sharing this experience with the kids again this year. And I'm looking forward to sharing the whole thing with you all here!

Keep up to date with all updates regarding the show, ticket sales and future performances, follow Disney on Ice on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram and bookmark the website so you don't miss a thing!

See you all back here after the show!
Merry Christmas!

We have been offered tickets to Disney on Ice for the purpose of writing our upcoming review. No payment was offered for the writing of this post and all words are our own.

Wonderbly has the Golden Ticket!

"Welcome my friends, welcome to my chocolate factory"
Willy Wonka

Have you heard of Wonderbly? If you haven't, I'm sure you've heard of Lost My Name? The wonderfully creative company that brought us the personalised, immersive and intricately illustrated The Little Girl who Lost her Name and The Little Boy who Lost his Name?

In 2012, four friends combined their ideas, their endless talents and every spare minute of their day to creating something special. They made a personalised book that was like no other, and were behind the launch of the company we knew as Lost My Name. With the perfect mix of imaginative rhyme and attractive illustration, these four friends soon realised that they had brought something to the market that people wanted. People in their hundreds, their thousands ... their millions! Fast forward to 2017, a mere five years later, and the company has grown so much, a rebrand was needed.

And so we have Wonderbly!

Boasting a total of 6 captivating story books, Milestone cards, a Snap! game and an alphabet poster, all personalised, of course, Wonderbly, for now, cater for a young audience between the ages of 0-12 years.

"Come with me, And you'll be
In a world of pure imagination ..."

Now, just when we thought their books couldn't get any more beautiful, they go and bring out something extra amazing. Brilliant in anyone's eyes, I'd say, but Munch is such a huge fan of Roald Dahl and I believe his masterpieces will always have a significant place in her heart.

So, when she is handed a carefully crafted book that promises to take her imagination to places it has never before ventured and offers her a deeper look into the wacky world of Willy Wonka, she couldn't get the front cover open quickly enough!

Introducing My Golden Ticket!

As much as I want to delve into this book in great detail, showing you every page and telling you all about the amazing adventure it offers from cover to cover, I feel that would take away some of the magic that comes from laying eyes on these pages for the first time. The illustrations are, as always, captivating, and the text, design and whole idea behind this creation is something quite special and is sure to be treasured for a lifetime and beyond by any Roald Dahl fan.

Readers, young and old, are treated to a classically exciting introduction when they open the front cover. Anyone that has read the story or watched the film starring the most fantastically eccentric chocolate factory owner ever known, has felt the excitement surrounding the children of the story as they peel back those candy wrappers to reveal a corner of shimmering gold, Wonderbly's Golden Ticket begins this journey with a golden ticket. A ticket that means exclusivity, and gives its holder access to to places never seen before. And that is exactly what Wonderbly offers here.

And a personalised touch to start the adventure ...

From Factory Rules to Floor Plans, Room Tours to a Rock Candy Mine, just as Mr Wonka had done for a little boy many years ago, Wonderbly have managed to create a beautifully bonkers, wonderfully wacky, but spectacularly special book that takes you on a walk deeper and deeper into the world of Wonka, which all leads to something quite amazing at the end.

But I wouldn't spoil that!

The design of every page has been carefully constructed, ensuring that no part of any page is left bare. Illustrations large and small grace every inch of every page, and every single one of them has meaning and a significant place in the book.

Watching Munch's facial expressions as she turns each page has been an adventure in itself, and listening to her reading the words, some of which have been written especially for her, is absolutely magical. The long, Dahlish words that can have a completely different definition each and every time they are read, allow her imagination to venture on an infinite number of adventures.

So far, Munch has read this book a number of times, and she seems to notice something she hadn't noticed before every time, so I'd call that a gift that keeps on giving! One thing I do know though, is that the next time she reads Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, it will be through an entirely evolved pair of eyes! After all, she now knows exactly how much magic those stony walls are hiding!

This book is an ideal and unique gift for any Roald Dahl fan, young or old! And ordering a copy could not be easier. The Wonderbly website is incredibly inviting and simple to use, and the step by step instructions guide you through the whole process, making sure that nothing is missed along the way. And with the option to add your own personalised message to the beginning of the book, you really are creating something that will be treasured forever! Available in paperback (£19.99) or hardcover (£25.99), Wonderbly keep you completely up to date on the status of your order and, if you do encounter a problem (which is very unlikely), then their customer service is second to none! 

I hope Wonderbly continue to grow, as the magic they provide to their audience is truly enchanting. I honestly believe, with Wonderbly, anything is possible if you just unleash a little imagination!

The joy in those eyes ...? 
That's the wonder of Wonka ...
That's the wonder of Wonderbly!

Keep up to date with news, offers and upcoming titles by following Wonderbly on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram and see how to order any of the Wonderbly range & keep an eye on updates on their website.

We were sent a copy of My Golden Ticket for the purpose of this review, but all words and opinions are 100% our own. No other payment was received.

These life-like dolls are selling like hotcakes and it's easy to understand why. Just like a real and breathing baby, the Luvabella doll expresses herself by crying, smiling, and laughing. She giggles when tickled, reacts when spoon-fed and takes a nap when you lull her to sleep. What's unique about this doll is that Luvabella is capable of learning over 100 words and phrases. There is also a boy version, the Luvabeau.

2. Fisher Price ‘Teach n Tag Movi’, RRP £49.99

4. Lego Boost, RRP £149.99

Lego has been around for decades yet it will never be out of trend. But if you're looking for something a little different from the usual and want to level things up, there's the Lego Boost. It combines the good old favourite brick we all know and love, and technology, as it needs programmable coding for you to build the robots. Let your kids' imagination fly and improve their creativity as they build the robot designs using the app. 

5. Airhogs DR1 Official Race Drone, RRP £99.99

This year is the year of drone. Business and consumers alike are flying drones and it's not hard to understand why. They are used for different purposes but on a consumer level, drones give a racing experience that is nothing but entertaining. This drone is lightweight and easy to use, making it an ideal gift for young ones. It also allows for outdoor play. 

As you might have noticed, the hottest toys these days are not just entertaining. They are also educational! For more suggestions on the best toys that you can give your loved ones this Christmas, view here

Swago: Shopping Edition is Back!

Start saving the pennies for Christmas!

With the festive season upon us, many are starting to pull the presents in. It can be a pricey business, as we all know, however 'worth it' it may be. No one wants to be paying off Christmas debts several months into the new year. This is why I have kept up my Swagbucks account now for the past 12 months. It paid for last Christmas, and I am hoping it will be just as beneficial for me and my family this year!

Swagbucks is hosting another round of Shopping Swago! What is SWAGO you ask? It's a bingo-inspired promotion run by Swagbucks, a website that rewards you with points (called SB) for completing everyday online activities. You can redeem those SB for free gift cards. If you've never used Swagbucks, participating in SWAGO is a great introduction to the site and an easy way to earn a good amount of points quickly. 

Here’s what you need to know to get your 50 SB Bonus (and don’t worry, you don’t have to make a purchase to complete a pattern):

Shop Swago will begin on Monday, October 23rd at 9am PT/12pm ET, make sure you hit “Join” otherwise you won’t get credit for completing the action items. Each square on your Swago Board will contain an action item to complete.

Once you complete the action item in a particular square the square will change color signifying the action item is complete.
You have a limited amount of time to mark off as many squares as possible so use your time wisely.

Be mindful of the patterns and their corresponding bonuses located on the right of your Swago Board. The patterns will vary in difficulty and bonus value.
Once you’ve achieved a pattern the corresponding “Submit” button will light up. You can have multiple patterns available for submission, however, you can only submit ONE pattern so choose wisely.

The game ends Friday, October 27th at 12pm PDT/3pm EDT. So make sure to hit “Submit” on the pattern you wish to submit. If you don’t hit “Submit” before the game ends you won’t receive your SB bonus.

Take a look for yourself. There is nothing to lose. If you search the web and make online purchases anyway, you could be getting paid in popular vouchers just for doing so!

This post has been written, as an Influencer, in collaboration with Swagbucks and I have been compensated for my time in SB (Swagbucks virtual payment points) only.

#Blogtober17 Day 6: Flowers

Let your dreams blossom!

Today's prompt for #Blogtober17 is 'Flowers' - an easy one, right? I could talk about my favourite flowers, but that's pretty dull for a blog post. I could write about the flowers I have chosen to adorn our upcoming wedding ceremony, but that post would probably be over before it's started. So I thought about it for a while and then kicked myself for even thinking about it! After all, when it comes to flowers, my angle is pretty obvious!

Before babies started filling our lives, The Man would frequently come home from work with a bunch of flowers. He'd walk through the door, clutching the pretty bouquet and would approach me with a smile. "Here ..." he'd say ...

"I saw these and ..."

Before he could say much more, those flowers were straight into a vase (no time for stem snipping or proper arranging) and the camera was poised. The colours, the shapes - he just couldn't (and still can't) walk past a florist without something catching his eye. He wouldn't just see beautiful flowers, he would see angles, light & shade, composition. Now, don't get me wrong, I did get flowers from him ... I just got them second hand! The camera lens got to see every inch of those beauties before I could even get my hands on them to give them water!

It may sound as though I am complaining. Far from it!
Do you know why?
Because the man didn't just give me flowers ... he didn't hand me beautiful, mortal stems that would last a week or so before withering. He made sure that those flowers would last forever, and his attention to detail and the angles he observed meant that I would remember every single one of those blooms in their most stunning form.

The Man has had an interest in photography since long before we met. It made me smile when I found out he had this love. I had grown up surrounded by everything photography. Dad was a professional throughout my childhood, and, until I was 9 years old, we lived in a 2 storey flat above his studio and shop. I remember so much. I remember the long hours he would work as he would get booked up for important events, back-to-back. I remember the smells - from the strong odour of the chemicals in his dark room, to the smell of the drawer that stored old, unused photographs, film capsules and everything else that was no longer needed but was always kept (by the way, I loved the smell of that drawer!) So, finding someone to share my life with that also shares a lifelong passion with the #1 man in my life was a bit of a win!

The Man started to take more photos and slowly upgraded the important parts of his equipment. He started to be creative with household objects and discovered that he had a real talent for macro photography - especially when it included water droplets. As the years passes, more opportunities came along, including family photo shoots, promotional work for a local hotel and something that is becoming a favourite, weddings.

Today sees him and my dad in the early stages of starting their own photography business. I will write again soon with more details about that. I want to shout their business name from the rooftops and entice you all to follow their new social media channels, but I'm not allowed to yet as they haven't uploaded enough material yet, but soon ...

But for now, I will come back to how this post is related to flowers.
Well, flowers is where it all really began, and with all the flower topics I could have written about, with an Instagram account like this, there is not a more appropriate angle ... for me!

So, as the quote I have chosen to use above says, "All the flowers of tomorrow are in the seeds of today", and in the case of The Man and my dad, this couldn't be more true! Today, a little seed ... tomorrow, a full garden in bloom!

A nice little Christmas Earner!

It's been a while since I last wrote about Swagbucks. Not because I've stopped using it or have lost faith in it -far from it. I still use Swagbucks every day and I am still building up a nice little amount in preparation for Christmas. Knowing how much it helped last year, I would have been mad not to keep it going! If you haven't caught any of my previous posts about Swagbucks, allow me to explain briefly what it is about. 

Swagbucks is a rewards site where you earn points (called SB) for things you're probably doing online already, like searching, watching videos, discovering deals, and taking surveys. Then you take those points and exchange them for gift cards to places like Amazon, Starbucks, or PayPal cash. 

All throughout October you can earn large bonuses from Swagbucks. 

When you sign up through me this month, you can earn a 500 SB bonus! Here's how: 

1. Sign up using this link 

2. Earn 300 SB total before 1/11/17. You'll get a 300 SB bonus for it! 

3. If you spend at least £25 through Swagbucks Shop* you'll get another 200 SB bonus on top of the cash back you'll get from shopping. If you have some shopping to do online, just go to Swagbucks first and visit the store through them. It doesn't cost you anything extra, but you'll get SB points for every dollar you spend (on top of the bonus)! 

That's it. It's super easy, and Swagbucks is for real. I use it myself, and I've earned enough to make birthdays and Christmas much less stressful for the past year!

Good Luck!

*You must receive your shopping SB before 1 December

This post is in collaboration with Swagbucks, but I am a genuine user of the site. For promoting this information, I receive a very small SB payment (virtual points) No other payment has been received.
