Secret Spy Workshop - Review

My boys love spying on each other and me, So this Secret Spy kit was perfect for them.

Inside the Secret Spy Workshop were three cool Secret Spy activities

A Super Snope Periscope -  in a few simple steps you have a cool periscope
Black Hole Money Box - this has two alternating backgrounds as well as an option to design and colour your own, 
Secret Spy Code - this was slightly more complex and requires a more concentration as you need to draw a picture and then use co-ordinate dots to make your code.

They boys had an amazing time spying on each other with the periscope it was very simple to make and was great fun.

The boys were amazed with this Black Hole Money Box, it was simple to create and left them astounded. with the alternating backgrounds of a Holographic design, Ocean Deep Treasure Chest and a DIY design background, we loved this activity, not only is the cool, but its magical.

Overall we really liked that we could get involved, this Super Spy Kit is suitable for children aged 6+ and RRP £12.99.

We were given the product to review,all thoughts are honest and that of our own.

Fish Is The Dish - Spicy Garlic Salmon

The national authority on seafood have launched an amazing new campaign called Fish Is The Dish to encourage the people of Britain to eat more fish by promoting its health benefits, along with the wide variety of tasty and convenient recipes that we all enjoy.

As part of this campaign myself and several other blogger have been challenged in the Ready, Steady Cook Fish to create our very own Fish Dish in just 30 minutes and as I love a Challenge I couldn't wait t get involved. I decided to link my favourite flavours as well as a spicy hint as I adore spicy food and so here is my recipe......

Spicy Garlic Salmon Fillets

4 Salmon filet's

For the Garnish
2/3 cloves of Garlic (depending how much you love garlic)
1 green chili
2 tablespoon of olive oil
1 teaspoon of garam Masala
1/2 teaspoon turmeric
Fresh bunch of coriander (washed)
Season with salt and pepper

Serve with 
Sweetcorn mange tout/small knob of butter
Basmati rice 

Blend all of the garnish ingredients together until you have a soft consistency
place garnish on top of Salmon fillets and then bake in the oven gas 5 for 25 minutes.

Next blanch the mange tout and sweetcorn for 5/10 minutes, drain and gently toss into melted butter to flavour for 2 minutes.
Serve Salmon with blanched mange tout and sweetcorn with basmati rice.
Quick simple and delicious, if you like it really spicy why not add an extra chili

My next choice were these Pretty Legs 15 denier Ankle Highs which come in a pack of four, I always like the natural looking sheer style that I can wear with my shoes, Made with 100% nylon and with a reinforced toe these were amazing value at only £1.75.

I really love these Kunert Fresh Up Ankle Socks, the ultra sheer design is not only comfortable but they feel amazing on, as are almost invisible which gives a subtle glow to your skin, These 10 denier ankle highs wash well and with 10 pairs in every box I was very pleased with the £4.99 price tag.
