Things To Do South Of The Thames

**Advertisement Feature**

London is among the biggest draws for tourists in the world. Every year, millions of sightseers, foreign and domestic, make the trip to the capital. As you might be aware, the city is packed with fantastic things to see and do. Despite this, it’s just a handful that receive the majority of attention. Once you’ve taken a trip on the London Eye, and spent a few hours ogling the waxworks at Madame Tussauds, you’ll have to dig a little deeper to entertain yourself. Thankfully, doing so is almost always worth the effort. 

Let’s take a look at some of the best attractions in London, south of the Thames.

Happy Birthday James - Double Digits!

James, my kind, caring cheeky little chap. Today you turned 10, wait let me say that again 10! I can't quite believe that today marks 10 years since you came into our lives, making me and your dad two of the proudest people on the planet.

I have sat and stared at this screen for the past week wondering what to write. You see it's not that I don't have the words, it's that I want to get across to everyone just how amazing you are and how awesome the last 10 years have been, and I'm just not sure my words are enough.

Zuru Rainbocorns Big Bow Surprise **REVIEW**

** AD - Review**

When it comes to surprise toys its safe to say that Evelyn is a big fan! Surprise toys seem to be popping up more and more at the moment but I don't think we have ever seen a surprise toy this big and with this many surprises before!

The Zuru Rainbocorns Big Bow surprise is a giant egg shape with a sparkly unicorn horn on top. Inside you will find a surprise Rainbocorns character as well as 25 surprises to be opened, but which character will you find? Of course Evelyn couldn't wait to hatch open her Rainbocorn and see who would be hiding inside.

5 Ways To Tranform Your Kitchen Into A Place You Love!

**Advertisement Feature**

The kitchen holds such fond memories for me, I remember as a child clambering up onto a stool that felt a mile high, to help my nan make fairy cakes and whisk batter to make Yorkshire puddings. They are memories that I will treasure forever and that is definitely where my passion for cooking and baking stems from.

However since becoming an adult and having my own family, being in my kitchen space can sometimes feel like a chore and stressful. We don't have a huge kitchen in our current home and I dream of a nice big kitchen when we buy our forever home. A space I can cook to my hearts content and teach my own kids all the things my nan taught me.

Zuru Bunch O Balloons Self Inflating Party Balloons **REVIEW & GIVEAWAY**

**AD - Review**

A party isn't a party without loads of balloons for the kids to kick, bat and bounce around is it!? But when it comes to actually inflating all those balloons it can be pretty time consuming and leave you out of breath for ages.

But that's all changed in our house thanks to the new party pump pack from Zuru. Their brand new Bunch O Balloons self inflating party balloon pack makes inflating 8, 16 or even 24 balloons simple in a matter of seconds. In fact it can inflate 40 balloons in 40 seconds and you don't even need to tie them as there are already pre tied!

National Geographic STEM Dig Kits & Ultimate Play Sand Kit **REVIEW**

**AD - Review**

Over the last 6 months or so you may have noticed us sharing lots of fun, educational and interesting kits and toys from the National Geographic S.T.E.M range. That's because we were lucky enough to be chosen as Bandai S.T.E.M ambassadors and we have loved trying out all the products and sharing them with you. Some of our favourites include the mini dig kits, erupting volcanos and even breaking open our own geodes!

Unfortunately this is our last post as S.T.E.M ambassadors but we still have some amazing kits to share with you yet, including one of our favourites!

Out of all the kits we have received over the last few months, the Ultimate play sand has probably been Evelyn's favourite. Mostly because I think she has been a little young for the other kits but also because, well kinetic sand is pretty mesmerizing isn't it!?
