Staycation Ideas with JORD Watches

*Advertorial

We have been thinking about staycation ideas with JORD watches. Usually, we would spend a while planning to see somewhere that is far away from where we live. This year though, we have spent some time closer to home. We needed to keep an eye on the time so my Dad took his unique watch from JORD along with us.

Do all Holidays Need to be Far Away?

My children find long journeys difficult. They are so excited and eager to get to our destination, that the trip seems to last forever for them. We have also had issues with travel sickness in the past. Far away holidays are great but we have decided that this year, we don’t need to go far at all.

Messy Room to Homework Station: Bedroom Makeover

*Advertorial

As my son gets older, his bedroom seems to have got messier. He used to keep it very tidy but since turning ten years old, he puts things down and just leaves them. His Grandma and I have spent quite some time tidying his room over the past few months. It had got to the point where we had had quite enough of doing this for him though. We decided that he needed to take back the responsibility of keeping it tidy himself. We just had to figure out a way to motivate him to keep his room clean and clear.

Messy bedroom to homework station: An inspiring bedroom makeover. My son's bedroom was very messy so when we were given a desk from Kit Out My Office, we got to work tidying his bedroom. We re-arranaged the furniture in the bedroom and added the desk. Homework stations for kids and homework stations for teenagers are a great way to motivate children to do their homework and to keep the room tidy. Desk orginaisation is important too. We have made sure that my son has everything he needs within arms reach, to get his homework done quickly and painlessly. Less distractions are best. This bedroom idea for small rooms is perfect for my tween. This shows the bedroom makeover before and after pictures. This Aspire desk is great for any budget. My son chose a science themed desk space. He included his periodic table, robot stacking dolls, magnet fiddle toy, his science experiments book, a quote from Einstein to motivate him, his guitar picks, a stationary pot and of course, his Lego creation. #ad

New Season Dresses from JD Williams: A Review

We were recently given two dresses from JD Williams for the purposes of this review.

JD Williams Clothes Choices

When I first visited the JD Williams website, I was pleasantly surprised by the huge amount of choice of dresses, blouses and shoes there were. My Mum saw that I was looking at the clothes on offer and she started looking with me.

The website was set out clearly and it was easy to select the types of clothing that we wanted to view. We really liked that there was a range of dresses that were of different prices. The dresses were affordable, with the dresses we browsed being priced between £6 and £110.

Dresses for a Christening and a Wedding

Some of the dresses were those that you could wear as everyday dresses. We were particularly looking for dresses for an upcoming wedding and a Christening. The dresses from JD Williams gave us lots of options Continue reading New Season Dresses from JD Williams: A Review

My Winter Wardrobe and My New Wood Watch

I recently received a unique watch from JORD and it is the most unique watch I’ve ever owned.  It has been a long time since I last wore a watch.  My last watch broke and I never got round to buying a new one.

Getting a Great Wood Watch that Fits Well

My wrists are quite small so I have always found it difficult to find a cool watch that would fit well.  Previous women’s watches that I’ve owned have meant that I’ve had to send each watch away for a few weeks, via the local jewellers, to get it to fit comfortably.

St Kew Goodwill Basket Review

We were given a Goodwill Basket from Dobies for the purposes of this review.  After spending a while online looking for the right gift basket for my Gran, I was pleased when this St Kew Goodwill Basket arrived.

St Kew Goodwill Basket: A Great Gift

Each year, Gran buys me a meat pack from the butcher. I get her some special biscuits alongside another special gift.  She really does enjoy her puddings and biscuits but rarely has them any more.  This means that when she does have a few, they are a real treat for her.
