Our favourite things that we tried in 2015.

As a blogger I am very lucky to be sent items to review every now and again....In 2015 we had some wonderful things to have a look at and try out. Obviously I do appreciate and I'm thankful for everything we are sent but these were some of our favourite items that we have had the most use and enjoyment from last year....



We received this jacket way back in March and Ellie is still getting plenty of use out of this coat....It was a little large to start with and still has room to grow into....We have had plenty of rain and wind to try it in and Ellie has stayed warm and dry.....It has been washed plenty and has came through each wash well! This is still a fantastic coat and I can highly recommend it.



Since trying these out these are my go to cake mix when I have a special cake to make.....I have never had one turn out wrong.....They always taste so good too!



As well as this one we received the Muddy Puddles Lottie....Ellie has got so much enjoyment from these dolls.... They really are lovely little things.


This is such a fantastic little gadget....My girls are quite the experts and using it now and have made so many animated videos....Mainly of Minecraft things which I must upload to my YouTube channel.....

Vanish Products.


Since reviewing these I have always made sure to keep some in the cupboard under the sink.....They really are great products and work so well....

AirMotion Pro Brush.


This is the best hair brush I have ever owned....So much so I actually bought another one myself....My hair does feel in better condition since using it and the kids never complain when I use it to brush their hair.

Baker Ross Craft kits.

I am part of the Baker Ross blogger Network and we have often been sent a box of wonderful craft kits to try out.....Autumn crafts, Halloween crafts and some Christmas crafts.....

 
My girls have had fantastic fun with them and so have I.....I never thought I was any good at crafts until we started trying these....They are so simple to use and everything always ends up looking so good.....
