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.

Heavenly Tasty Organics Low Sugar Snacks Review


I have struggled to find suitable snacks for my daughter due to her food intolerances.  Options for dairy free snacks have always seemed quite limited to us.  After being contacted by Heavenly Tasty Organics about some low sugar snacks, I was pleased to hear that some of these snacks don’t contain cows’ milk.  They are, however, produced in a factory that handles milk.

Sometimes, it is nice just to be able to pick up a snack to take out with us rather than have to make it from scratch.  We like to have foods that are more convenient sometimes.  We received a box full of different low sugar snacks.  Some of these were dairy free and others were not.  My daughter has tried all of the dairy free low sugar snacks and my son has eaten the other organic treats in there.
