If you are itching to take the lead and design your own bespoke beauty box Latest In Beauty have the solution for you with their Build Your Own Box. I’ve written before about how much I have enjoyed the LIB collections (check out their amazing value Summer Glamour Box!) not only for the perfect product placement but for the amazing value in the boxes too. Not convinced? Or perhaps you are new to the LIB concept. Have a look at my post on my favourite two LIB beauty boxes last month the product value in each box is astounding and if you fancy buying the Summer Glamour box it’s on sale now for only £20.00 – with an incredible £104.00 product value inside!

This year we have gone all out to treat dad this Father’s day and the girls have made some really lovely cards, a cute hand made box and even some handmade wrapping as well. Father’s Day is a chance to let dad know how much he means to the family and how much he is appreciated, my girls always really look forward to treating their dad and collude in secret leading up to Father’s Day on every aspect of the celebration! This year for us it’s even more special as we have had a really tough year, hence the huge celebration. He is off work this Father’s Day (he is a paramedic) which is a rarity, so we are making sure he has a great day and enjoys getting thoroughly spoiled by us! Below are some further ideas which we feel would make ideal gifts for dad’s this Father’s Day and if you missed my previous posts on gift ideas for dad’s this year take a look HERE, HERE and HERE for some inspiration.

Can you believe it is already June?! Time is ticking to get the perfect gifts and cards ready for Father’s Day and I have been looking high and low to find some unique and useful ideas for 2016. I have already written about some of my finds HERE and HERE and this weekend the girls and I have been busy at work crafting a homemade card for their dad. I’ve been so impressed with our girls at how much effort and love they have been putting into creating a gift box with lots of fun things in for their dad, the gifts are of course lovely but the pictures and cards make it really special and I can’t wait for him to see it all, including the colourful hand made wrapping they made together. Take a look below at some ideas we have loved testing out and ones we feel would make really great unique gifts for any dad on Father’s Day.

We have had such a hard time with Lara our ten year old just recently, as she has had tonsillitis for the last five weeks with many trips to the GP for advice and treatment. So when the opportunity came along to try out some tasty gluten free food from Heck , I was really happy to test it out on the family, and primarily to encourage Lara to eat some good quality foods to help to get her back to good health! With her illness she has been off her food completely so I was happy to introduce the Heck range to her in a bid to get some tasty foods into her. I really liked the variety Heck had presented for us to try and with barbecue weather on the horizon (we hope!) the sausages will be just perfect for cooking up for the family. 

“Yes, we’re uncompromising, but HECK, that’s how we make damn good sausages.”
