Colour Yourself Calm THE CHALLENGE!

Colour yourself calm? Yes you read right! This is the new trend that is sweeping the nation. Not one to always follow trends especially when it comes to fashion (I know what works as I am over 30 after all!), this one I had to make an exception on.   After hesitantly offering to do the weekly food shopping in our local supermarket on my day off, may I add

Toucan Box

With May’s half term in full swing and the panic of a long summer holiday for the children ahead, parents everywhere are starting to break a little sweat as to how they are going to keep their kids occupied.  Let’s face it! We can’t rely on the weather to be always nice so that they can play outside all day in the garden or in a park.  Not having any kids of

Set in Madrid, Spain, Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown is based on a film by Pedro Almodóvar. The main character is a woman called Peppa, who, after finding out that her lover has

Alice in Wonderland

 This year sees the 150th anniversary of  Alice In Wonderland.  Lewis Carol’s well loved novel that has touched many hearts over the years.  Whether is was the book,  the fairy tale version, or the darker Tim Burton take, what is there not to love about a magical world where animals talk and tea parties are a must? Alice In Wonderland is a tale of Alice a girl who tumbles down
