Corfe Castle, Dorset

There’s something special about castles. As soon as I visit one, my imagination starts to run wild. I find myself imagining what would have happened when the castle was alive with Knights. I guess the days I spent watching and reading about Robin Hood have a lot to answer for. I see castles as very dramatic, colourful and romantic places. Over the years, we’ve visited lots of castles, the boys have each gone through a Knights stage. We have visited castles all over the place, perhaps our favourite castle is in Beynac, France. But somehow we had missed a castle closer to home, Corfe Castle, Dorset, and it now holds a top position in our hearts.

NEW Carribean Cove: Sealife Adventure Park, Weymouth. REVIEW

My children are mad about the sea. Whenever we get the chance we always head to the seaside. We have visited Weymouth several times, and often looked at the Sealife Adveture Park from the outside. But until last week, we had never visited. I think from the outside it doesn’t look very big, but looks can be deceptive! We were invited to visit to see the new play area Carribean Cove which opened last weekend, so here’s what we thought of our day;

Beauty Boost Skin Restore; Review & Competition

Green People are one of my favourite organic beauty brands. I discovered Green People’s Beauty Boost  Skin Restore by accident. I ran out of face cream, and grabbed a sample sachet which I’d been sent a while ago. What a happy accident it was! A reminder to be braver and try new skincare from time to time! You see, I’ve reached an age when to be blunt my skin looks tired. I don’t drink enough water, and I drink far too much caffeine. My skin looks in desperate need of hydration.
