Yollies - Yogurt Lolly


We were absolutely delighted to try the amazing New Yollies, Yollies are from the makers of  Cheesestrings who have brought a cool and unique dairy delight on a stick, 


Yollies are Made from a deliciously fruity yogurt, We were amazed at the thick creamy texture which was unlike anything we had ever tasted before, As huge yogurt lovers we often opt out of taking yogurt's on picnics or in packed lunches due the the fact you need to take along a spoon and plus they can be quite messy, But New Yollies had changed the way we eat yogurt forever,


Yollies are packed in a cool looking character stay fresh pod's and are firm enough to stay on the stick, Which means that Yollies keep there shape and stay fresh. 

Yollies are sold in packs of four and not only feature 16 cool characters,But each stick is a collectable keyring too, And as a mother I can be assured that Yollies are made using real fruit puree and contain no artificial colourings or flavourings. 


We really loved Yollies they were amazing to eat, We loved the funky looking characters and cool designs, It was great choosing which character was our favourite and who we was going to eat next, As we bit into the Yollies our mouths were filled with the creamy texture and fruity flavour,They tasted amazing, It was a yogurt but firmer and on a stick !!! which was so amazingly cool, Yollies are a perfect dairy snack for on the go.



Yollies come in three amazing flavours Raspberry, Strawberry and Apricot and can be found in the Yogurt aisle are available in Asda Stores nationwide RRP £2






We were given the Yollies to sample, All thought are honest and that of our own.

Creating An Atmosphere: A Guide To Mood Lighting


With a little imagination and some new lighting products, it’s amazing how easy it is to transform the look and feel of your rooms. If you’re keen to create some impressive mood lighting effects in your home, take a look at these top tips.

Living room
You can let your imagination run wild when it comes to selecting mood lights for your living room. The important thing to remember is that by using different types of lighting and placing these products in various locations around the space, you can create a host of different effects and achieve the perfect atmosphere for any occasion.  

A must for any living room is a ceiling light and by purchasing dimmer versions, you can control how bright the space is. If you’re trying to read or concentrate, put the dimmer up high. On the other hand, if you’re relaxing or enjoying a romantic evening in, simply turn it down.

To add texture to your lounge lighting, it’s a good idea to introduce wall lights and these items are also available with dimmer controls. Low level lighting around the edges of your room can help to create a warm, homely feel. The same applies to floor and table lamps. You can turn these on or off, depending on the look you’re trying to create.

Last but by no means least, it’s worth investing in some stylish picture lights. Rather than adding to the brightness of your living room, these products simply draw attention to your artwork. They look especially good when the rest of your lounge is under low level lighting.

Bathroom
Sometimes, there’s nothing better than a relaxing soak in the tub, but stark lighting can ruin these experiences. If you want to unwind in style in your bathroom, it helps to have an alternative to your main ceiling light.

One great option is to invest in mirror lights. By switching these on rather than your overhead light, you can create a much more restful environment.

You can supplement this look by lighting a few candles around your bath or on your window ledge, and for the full effect opt for aromatherapy versions.

Kitchen
Of course, you’ll need to be able to see what you’re doing when you’re cooking up a storm in your kitchen. However, if you’re staging an intimate dinner party or a romantic meal for two in the space, it’s important to have less intense lighting options.

Ceiling spot lights can be perfect for these rooms. You can adjust the heads so that they are directed towards your hob, sink and food preparation areas, but away from your dining table. Under cabinet lights are great too. They illuminate worktops without casting too much light around the room more generally.  

Bedroom
You can have some real fun when it comes to choosing mood lights for your bedroom. After all, this is your space to do whatever you like with. Dimmer wall lights and lamps are a must in these rooms. They allow you to completely transform the atmosphere at the flick or a switch or turn of a button.

You can also use your imagination when it comes to colour. Bedrooms should be warm, cosy places and you can achieve this look by simply purchasing the right shades for your wall and ceiling lights, as well as your lamps. Earthy colours and pinks and reds are a great option if you want to create a romantic setting.

It’s also possible to purchase coloured ceiling pendant lights. For example, you can get versions that feature opal glass pendants with coloured bulbs, and the colour is only visible when the pendant is lit.

See for yourself
If these ideas have sparked your imagination and you want to check out the impressive selection of lighting products now available, head to websites like The Lighting Superstore. You should be able to find everything you need within no time.

John Jr. Greystoke was just a child when he accompanied his adventurous parents to Africa in search of a mineral that could revolutionise the energy industry. The trip ended in tragedy when their helicopter crashed in the heart of the dark and dangerous jungle, leaving John Jr. as the sole survivor. Found and raised from that day forward by a family of primates, John is renamed Tarzan and thrives in his beautiful new surroundings. Years later, the grown up Tarzan falls for pretty conservationist Jane Porter following a chance meeting.

Family Fun In London - Ripley's Believe It Or Not


We were super excited to visit Ripley's believe It Or Not in London's Piccadilly Circus. Ripley's believe it or Not is home to an amazing 700 interactive exhibits located over six floors and it is most defiantly the most extraordinary place you will ever visit. With an amazing collection of stunning artifacts from across the globe, many of which were collected by the explorer Robert Ripley himself.

We had heard so many amazing things about Ripley's we really couldn't wait to get into the weird magical world of Ripley's Believe It Or Not.

As we headed into the foyer, we could feel the buzz and excitement in the air, We were greeted by a huge transformer and cool crystallised mini from that moment on, we were in anticipation and couldn't wait to continue our adventure.
Colouful and Bright - The cool lift inside Ripley's London that took us on our journey

The amazing journey of all that's weird and wonderful starts on the filth floor and as you work your way through each level you will be amazed at the stunning and strange interactive exhibits on display, We were in awe and what we saw, fascinated and excited by the cool exhibits which were beyond our wildest imagination.
Each cool gallery had something strange and unique to offer, We read some amazing facts and were astounded at what we saw.
With so much to see and do we spent hours exploring the galleries. From a cool knitted life size Ferrari to portraits made of toast and sweets, There really is something for everyone at Ripley's London, and you really won't believe what you are seeing. To give you a taster of what you can expect I have added a short clip of Ripley's Believe It Or not.


Half way through our amazing journey we stopped for a hot chocolate in the cool cafe which is home to the worlds tallest man as well as world heaviest man, It was an surreal sight as we sat and regained our energy for the adventure that awaited us.
The boys absolutely loved every single minute of our day, I can't tell you how many times my boys made me walk through the Spinning Tunnel as well as making me roll around the floor and dodge the laser beams in Impossible Laserace.

Our trip has left us with so many amazing memories, We really can't wait to visit Ripley's again.

 
Ripley's London has to be experienced to be believed. A jam packed day of the weird and wonderful. I have never been so fascinated and amazed. An exciting adventure for the whole family.
