5 Family Easter Activities For Under £20

Hey Lovelies!

Should you have little ones, by week two of the Easter holidays you will probably be going slightly mad. If climbing the walls trying to find something for your children to do (that does not continually break the bank) sound familiar – don’t panic! Here are some excellent ideas for things to do, ensuring Easter break is fun.

1.Geocaching: Cost: Totally FREE. Location: Anywhere. www.geocaching.com

For those of you who aren’t in the know, Geocaching is like a universal treasure hunt. People hide short messages or their names on a piece of rolled up paper in all sorts of locations, such as under benches, at churches and so forth. Simply add the app, sign up and follow the clues. Although the treasure isn’t awesome, the process of going out and searching is a great way to bond, have fun and get some exercise – the best bit being it’s absolutely free to do, and your children will love it!

2.Cadburys & National Trust Easter Egg Hunt, Prices Depend on Location, (Over 260 Hunts Across England, Wales and N. Ireland), www.nationaltrust.org.uk

Combine fun facts about wildlife, solve clues and puzzles and grab yourself an egg! The National Trust and Cadbury’s have teamed up this Easter and are offering various nature trails brimming with adventure, of which end with the discovery of a yummy chocolate egg! The prices are generally quite affordable (£20 for a family on average, which includes the egg hunt price £2 and the cost of admission). For this you can enjoy an entire day of adventure. Should your little ones still appear to have masses of energy following the hunt, many places will also offer an array of activities and games – so there is no chance you can’t all get a good night’s sleep (and the grown-ups can enjoy a lie-in)! N.b: Different locations will have varying admission prices.

3.Trampoline Park: Approximately £7 Per Child, Various Locations, www.jumpwarriors.co.uk

Let your little ones jump off some steam while you sit in the viewing bay with a latte and your fave magazine. Some of best memories from my childhood are ones when my nan took me to the local trampoline park. These places have come on leaps and bounds since then (pardon the pun) and is one of the best past-times for my son. You can’t go wrong!

4.The Movies

This is always a great way to spend a rainy afternoon – and I do believe the next Marvel film, Endgame (starring a man who actually is perfect, Chris Hemsworth) is soon to be released. However, i think it isn’t out until 25th of April. Still, in the meantime there are some funny movies for all of the family to watch. Surely nothing will be as bad as The Emoji movie!

5.Create Your Own Easter Egg Hunt, Cost: How Much You Spend on The Eggs – Lidl’s?

Get your children involved in creating an Easter egg hunt. Whilst you are thinking up your Easter hunt clues, let your child do their own. This allows them to get totally creative, involved in something fun – and most importantly – off the Xbox!

Do you have any Easter activity ideas to share, or have you done any of these? I would love to hear your thoughts. Leave me a message in the comments below – and have a fantastic Easter people xx

Beat Those Autumn Blues: 6 Things That Make Me Smile

Hey Lovelies

I hope you are having a fantastic bank holiday. Looking outside the weather has suddenly (and might I add, very rudely) changed from incredible warm sunshine to a somewhat dismal view, letting me know that Autumn is very much on its way. Grrr! To beat those Autumn blues, I’d thought I’d share with you 6 things that make me smile.

1.My Pooch And My Great-Nan

She’s cute, she’s fluffy and she loves everyone to bits (unless they resemble a postman and then it’s a different story altogether). That’s the pooch, not my great-nan in case you were wondering. My great-nan is the kindest and loveliest woman in the world and you can’t help but smile when you see her.

2.My Children

Another birthday is looming. How am I this old already? Time, you are a ruthless thief! However, my daughter smiled and told me she’d bought me something amazing that she can’t wait to give me and my little boy announced that my Mac is lagging, and he intends to buy me a new one (so cute, and..if only)!

3.Caffeine

It doesn’t matter how I source it (numerous coffees or Redbulls) caffeine always helps.

4.Chocolate

Yes, yes, sugar is the work of the devil and all that. Whatever – nothing beats a bar of Galaxy. Before you ask, no your eyes do not deceive you – there is nothing left of this bar apart from the wrapper!

5.A Great Book

When it’s cold and dreary outside there’s nothing better that snuggling up in your blankets (with choc and coffee) and a good book. One of my fave reads of late is Keep Your Friends Close by Paula Daly.

6.Finding An Awesome Series to Binge-Watch

When you think you’ve seen just about every decent series on offer and you are about to consider re-watching House for the umpteenth time, then you discover something undeniably awesome, like Person of Interest (and then find out there’s tons of series too). Could it get any better? Keep on coming rain, it’s fine! (If you haven’t got Netflix and want to watch this, buy at Amazon here

The Best Easter Chocolate, Ever

Hey Lovelies!

I hope you all are enjoying the Easter weekend and getting some much-deserved R&R. I have made great use of the time binge watching Person of Interest to the point where my eyes actually sting and eating copious amounts of chocolate. Here is a round-up of my all-time fave Easter choc, which now resembles disgraced empty boxes and is evidence of my chronic chocolate addiction (until I recycle later, anyway).

 1.Galaxy Indulgence Luxury Chocolate Easter Egg (Pack of 2, £29.99) Amazon.co.uk

I don’t know about you, but Galaxy tops the game. Included here is (instead of loads of packaging and a scrawny egg) a yummy egg and 3 bars of chocolate – what’s not to love? Nothing, I tell You.

 2.Esthechoc Cambridge Beauty Chocolate, £45, esthechoc.com

If you love dark chocolate and are struggling with an internal voice saying chocolate is the work of the devil, don’t fret; esthechoc have it covered. This incredible brand has come up with an ingenious hack so we can always eat delicious chocolate and it will have our backs fighting the onset of aging and free radical damage. No more worrying about whether chocolate is such a great idea. The only trouble is you are only allowed one packet of the delicious esthchoc each day (which is a tad for crazed chocolate eaters like me).

 3.The Big Easter Egg Classic Ostrich Egg, £40 (Was £80), HotelChocolat.com

If you are going to do something, do it properly. At over 1kilo of choc, this Easter egg from Hotel Chocolat has it all (but not for long). This Classic Ostrich Egg will indulge you with a delectable array of every heaven you can imagine, with dark, milk, white and caramel recipes – and a simply enormous egg to boot. SOOO Happy.

 Whatever you are doing this Easter Monday I hope you are having fun. What was your favourite egg? xx
