B.Pure Micellar Water

I've not even finished my Garnier micellar water but when I saw B.Pure's micellar water at the counter of superdrug on offer for £2.48 from £4.99 I just had to snap it up.
I finally gave it ago as my garnier one was downstairs (proper lazy mare me)
 Unlike garniers micellar water B.pure's has cucumber juice extract but to me still doesn't smell any nicer than the garnier one this one smells and feels like bubble mixture to me.
I've got it on my lip a few times and unlike the garnier it tastes chemically like a bubble mixture too, Both seem to leave my face feeling sticky but I'm loving using them every morning and every night before bed rather than having to be in my bathroom and using all sorts of different face washes.

B.Pure with this 3-in-1 'super' water. Quick and effective yet extremely gentle.

Cleanses - Removes impuritites and makeup.
Gentle enough to use on the delicate eye area.

Tones - Restores pH balance whilst keeping the skin supple.

Refreshes - with cucumber juice extract

One very big factor that puts B.Pure ahead of Garnier is it has the leaping bunny on the back of the bottle and is suitable for vegetarians and vegans! Woop

That Time Already?

I can't believe it's almost that time already, in just two days I'll find out what school my little Daisie-Doo's will be going to! 
She still seems way to small to be in a uniform, away from me for a full day and out in the big playground with all the older boisterous kids :(
The summer holidays will be our very last with a little one in nursery, I'll no longer have two separate school runs to do but will have two little ladies to get ready first thing in the morning as I see one into her school door I'll be taking my little legs round to her school door and leaving her in the care of her teacher for a full day while I'm left feeling like I'm missing an arm or leg, I'll have no little friend to help me with my shopping list, to entertain for another 2-3 hours until nursery time, to pick up after once I return home and sort out the house because I'll be doing that first thing in the morning after dropping both my babies off to school.
If I want to just sit back and watch her play I'll have to do so through a thick school fence while trying not to look really suspicious or let her spot me watching her.
Writing this already has my heart rate speeding up a little with the thought of just how much will be changing come September! 
No doubt it will be a good thing but this will the first time in years that I'll ever have the option more often than not to do things alone food shops, popping out for lunch, shopping with friends, house work without it all being messed up before I reached the next room, pop in for a nail infill or eyebrow tint and wax, take an afternoon nap if I want to there's so much I could do with that time but I can guarantee for the first few days I'll sit and stare aimlessly at my empty house and possibly even shed a tear or two.
I've been a mum since I was 16 and I really don't know how to be anything else even if it is just for a day, I'm not used to not wiping a little face and fingers for anything more than 3 hours a day.

A mummas time out is 2 + GIVEAWAY!

Has it really been 2 years since I finally took the plunge and set up my own little blog after finding myself on many different blogs almost everyday?
I'm amazed I've actually stuck at it for a whole two years and plan to continue it on further, I'm known for giving something a go and stop doing it altogether and end up binning or giving away whatever it was involved in what I started doing but I've carried on blogging I'll admit I have lost my way with it all a few times and often thought of having two blogs one for 'me' and this one for us as a family because I can't seem to find a happy medium of what topics I post about and tbh I still don't have a solid idea on where I'm taking it or if it's working the way I want it to but here you lovelies are still reading and leaving such amazing supportive comments.
I still don't share it on my Facebook out of fear someone local to me reading my personal posts something I one day hope to curb my fear of, I've met some wonderful bloggers along my way some I haven't met in person but I feel privileged to be given the time of day from.

As a HUGE thank you to all my readers and to the bloggers that have made me feel welcome in the blogger world, I'm giving away a £2O gift card/voucher of your choice.
Be it H&M,Topshop,MAC,Boots,Superdrug,Debenhams the choice is totally yours!

A little while ago I entered a raffle with the girls school and quite spookily won a family ticket to Eagle Heights, I say spookily because just that lunch time before taking Daisie into nursery she sat and admired my grandads meerkat statues and I said to her I'd take her to eagle heights to see the meerkats.
That afternoon when Andy went and got the girls he called me to let me know I'd won a family ticket to eagle heights in the raffle I'd entered.
So today with the weather being so nice we went along and used the tickets, The night before Issy had done herself a little checklist of different animals she might see to take along with her, something I think would be a great touch if the kids were given a checklist of animals at the entrance.
There were a wide range of different birds to see unfortunately a lot of the birds were behind 2 lots of wiring and my camera refused to focus or get a good enough picture for the birds to be visible so I didn't get as many pictures as I'd hoped to get.
All animals were kept far away and wasn't allowed to be touched which was sad as I'd have loved to have stroked the camel,goats,huskies and piggies but I can imagine it's that way for our safety, None of the animals seemed particularly happy which left me with a lot of mixed emotions about the day but I guess it's hard for an animal to put their thumb up and give you a reassuring smile.
A lot of reptiles were missing from when I last went and the reptile centre was considerably smaller with only 2 snakes, 2 bearded dragons and a iguana.
I've heard rumours about eagle heights shutting down because they just aren't doing as well as they used to and after going yesterday and seeing many empty spaces and a few animals missing it wouldn't totally surprise me if it was true which would be a shame because it is a lovely few hours out with a fairly priced entry fee.
There's also a lovely play park one for under 5's and one for the bigger kids situated beside the meerkats and some owls, the bigger park has 2 slides one to get into the park and another on the adventure park but the bridge to get over to the second slide in the bigger park was broken so little ones had no way over to play on some parts of it.
All that a side we had a lovely day out with my mum and it made a nice change to be out in the sun, Daisie did complain she was cold and I stupidly didn't pack any coats so we didn't stay for any displays as sunny as it was the wind was bitterly cold. No day is complete without a pit stop to the cafe even with a lunch packed me and Daisie enjoyed a yummy hot dog and Issy enjoyed a bacon sandwich (her fave)

Easter Egg Hunt '15

Each year since living in the house we do now I've always done a little Easter egg hunt, usually in the little foil wrapped miniature eggs but this year both girls are old enough to read clues and work them out.
So this year I opted for little plastic eggs that opened up (poundland) and put little clues in each one on where they'd find the next egg but its in no particular order and not every clue is the easiest to crack in hope it would take a little more than 5 minutes to complete the hunt.
This years also includes a 'BONUS Egg' which is bigger than the others and has chocolate coins hidden inside.
At the end of the hunt (no doubt I'll still end up finding one or two through out the week) The girls will be able to break into their hairbo bunny & chick.

Do you have an egg hunt planned this easter?
