I am in love with my newest pair of PJs. They are so soft and cosy, especially with these cold nights recently. The ones I chose can be found here and you can pick between pink or grey.

I went for a size S which is a size 10/12. I usually wear a size 8/10 in clothes and these were perfect as I like my PJs to be a bit on the baggy side.

The material is so soft and great quality. I usually buy my PJs from Primark as they are cheap but they aren’t very good quality and end up shrinking in the wash.

I have worn these a few times now and washed them with no problem. I think it is worth splashing out to get a good pair of PJS. It is important to be comfy, especially if you are like me and are in PJS longer than actual clothes! I always have a bath as soon as I get in from work and change into clean PJS ready for the evening. I love lounging around in a comfy pair 🙂

I am actually wearing these as I type out this review and admiring the leopard design as well as the piping details.

Slenderella have a great range of nightwear. The ones I have are £37, in their nightwear section the prices range from £19 – £50.

Where do you get your PJs from?

Trust, affection, loyalty, and understanding are all very important parts of the relationship you have with your pet. Having worked towards a strong bond for many years, there will have been a lot of occasions where you have struggled to know what to do with your furry or feathered friend. One of the hardest of these times will be when it comes to choosing just how much you will be treating them. To help you out with your balance of discipline and decadence, this post will be exploring the area in detail, to give you the chance to start handling it with ease.

Like humans, most pets will experience some negative health effects if they are given too much of the food they love. Gaining weight will only be part of it, with the damage being done on the inside being of greater concern. To avoid complications as a result of over eating, it’s always worth making sure that treats are strictly moderated, limiting your pet to a healthy amount. There are loads of calculators online which can help you to figure out how much food your animal needs.

Along with making sure that you give them the right amount, you also have to think about the time give it to them, too. In a lot of cases, people will give their pet a treat when they are asking for it or being naughty to get attention. Giving an animal positive reinforcement like this will only ever have negative results, though. When you give them something for bad behavior, they will be much more likely to do it again as time goes on.

Of course, though, there are plenty of perfectly good excuses to give your pet something they like. For dogs, this can often be as a direct reward for doing some good, like performing a trick or being friendly to other dogs. Pets like cats, though, will have to be given treats when you feel the time is right, as they won’t benefit from training for this sort. It’s always worth tailoring this to the animal in question. Every creature will have its own personality and abilities, making it impossible to judge them based on the acts of another.

Finally, as the last option to consider, your ability to keep this sort of thing healthy will greatly rely on the treats you buy for them. Examples like AniForte Sprats for dogs are perfect for this, being made from all natural ingredients which benefits for a pooch. It will be worth doing some research at this stage. To help you out, your vet will probably have some ideas, and resources like blogs will also be able to lend a hand.

With this in mind, it should start to get a lot easier to handle your pet treats without having to cut them out entirely. Just like your own diet, it will be very important that you manage this part of your pet’s life as well as you can. Thankfully, there are loads of tools to help you out, as a lot of people have experienced the same concerns.

I recently came across a toy/gadget website that supplies things for children of all ages, you can select from lots of different categories or select by the age of the recipient.
I ordered a few bits, as gifts and also for myself and was really impressed at how easy the website is to navigate and also at how quickly the order arrived.
Wicked Uncle is more than just a toy shop. We’re a present finding service. Whether you know the recipient really well, or they are just a random child from your kid’s class at school, the many ways you can search our site means that the perfect gift is just a few clicks away. We personally test out every product before we stock it; we build the kits, play the games, bake the rainbow cakes, blow the giant bubbles, and test drive the remote-control spiders! We pride ourselves on our collection of fun, interesting and unusual toys, books and games; a lot of our stock you just won’t find elsewhere.

You can choose from our great selection of colourful gift wrap, and even select a card design to be handwritten by the Wicked Uncle Elves for that personal touch. Even more cleverly, if you add the occasion to your reminders, we can send you a birthday reminder each year with a selection of age-appropriate gifts to choose from, so you need never miss a birthday again.” – www.wickeduncle.co.uk


The things I ordered were:

Hopping Chocolate Frogs – with Popping Candy – £4.95

These would be great for kids or adults, I personally love chocolate with popping candy! This would be a great gift for any chocolate lover.

Shamballa FIRE Jewellery – Make & Design – £10.95

This set was chosen as a gift. I know these bracelets are very popular and can be quite expensive to buy, so this set worked out really cheap as you can make 5 different products with it! I love the idea of being able to create your own jewellery. This would be suitable for both older children and adults.

Harmonica Set – £10.95

This I chose for my husband. He doesn’t play any instruments but for some reason wanted to learn the harmonica! He is really please with it and it is really good quality at a great price.

Think Outside the Box – Solve The Puzzle! – £5.95

This is actually a gift I chose to give to my grandad for his birthday. Even though it is meant for children I know he will really appreciate it as he loves games a puzzles. I think it is a great price and I think that Wicked Uncle really do cater for everyone, at any age.

Strawberry Cheesecake Popcorn – £3.95

Another item I just had to try! This tastes amazing and I had never heard of this flavour before. It is one of those “novelty flavours” that you can’t usually buy in the supermarket. this would be great for any popcorn lover.

They really do have a wide variety of products for anyone at any age so do check them out 🙂

It is a great idea that they can send you reminders for peoples birthdays and also send you appropriate gift suggestions.

Yes, you read correctly, office MOT. Your car has an MOT so why not adopt the same concept for your body?
You really need to think of ways to keep your mind and body healthy if you are sat down in front of a screen for the majority of the day. It could be as simple as getting up to have a drink at certain intervals during the day or making sure you stand up at least once an hour.
Furniture at work have put together a really great asset that you can find more about here. It is aimed at people that work full time in an office. I work full time and then most evenings I sit at my computer at home too so I really do try to walk about as much as I can.
They make a really great point that the colour of your surroundings can make a difference. Have you noticed how a lot of social media platforms use blue? Blue is apparently recognised as a safe and social colour. I like to think that pink makes me more motivated.
You may not be able to adapt the colour of your surroundings to how you like but many ways I have incorporated my favourite colours into my line of sight at work is by changing my background and taskbar, using colourful post-it notes and highlighters.
It is interesting to hear that 50% of people can’t find time to exercise when working full time. I myself like to try and exercise most evenings when I get in but there are small steps you can take throughout the day. You can stand up regularly to get yourself a drink, you can walk over to someone else in the office to talk to them instead of sending an email or you can go on a walk during your lunch break.
It can be easy to fall into a trap with eating bad snacks during the day, especially if you have a food van that comes round like we do. The warm sausage roll sounds a lot more tempting than the apple on my desk… It is important to try and eat as healthy as you can and if you are like me and you like to snack then pick up some healthy snack bars to keep in your drawer.
A lot of the tips mentioned can relate to other jobs, whether you you do physical work or work in retail, it is important to eat well, drink plenty of water and take breaks.
We really do take our bodies for granted and it is important to respect them and take care of them as after all, we want them to last as long as they can…

For a lot of people, no family is complete without a dog. A furry friend to keep you all company is often the final piece of the puzzle for a lot of families. It often doesn’t matter whether they’re big, small, young, old, or anywhere in between, dogs can bring huge amounts of joy and love into your life. However, that doesn’t mean that owning a dog is always going to be easy. The truth is that dog ownership can come with a lot of challenges that you have to ready for, if you’re not it can end up causing a lot of problems for you and your family. With that in mind, here are some things that you should never forget when bringing a furry friend into the house.

Your kids

Kids and dogs go together like nothing else in the world. They make perfect playmates and best friends that will be joined at the hip from day one. However, it’s important to remember that, as cute and loveable as your pooch might be, they are still an animal, and they don’t necessarily understand how fragile little ones can be. If your dog starts to play a little rough, it won’t mean to, but it could end up hurting your child if you haven’t trained it properly. Similarly, really young children often don’t know how to act around dogs and can end up making their lives incredibly stressful by pulling on their fur, trying to ride them, and just generally acting like little kids. You need to make sure that your kids are old enough to fully understand the responsibilities involved in owning a dog and how to properly interact with them so that everyone is as happy and comfortable as possible.

Unwelcome visitors

It’s not something that a lot of people want to think about, but when you bring a dog into the house, there’s a chance that you’re bringing in some pretty unwelcome hitchhikers too. Whether it’s fleas, ticks, or any other creepy crawlies, the idea of your home accidentally becoming infested can be enough to make anyone’s skin crawl. You need to make sure that you’re checking your dog’s fur for pests as regularly as possible and, if you find any, dealing with the problem right away. There are plenty of products like Pet-Lock that can get rid of any nasty visitors very quickly and you can find more info here about them, but you also need to spray around your house to deal with any who may have ended up in your carpets. If things get really bad, then it’s a good idea to take your pooch to the vet and get something a little stronger for them.


Dogs need exercise. There are no ifs, ands, or buts about it, that’s just a fact of life. They have huge amounts of energy, and they have to do something with it, or there’s going to be big trouble. There may be days where you just don’t feel like taking them for a walk, but that won’t cut it when you have a dog. If you don’t take your dog out for regular exercise then they’re going to end up getting incredibly over excited and frustrated, and that’s not only going to lead to them feeling tense and upset, but it could result in your home getting demolished as they run around the place trying to burn off some of their excess energy. Anyone who’s ever had a sofa on the receiving end of an overly enthusiastic puppy’s jaws knows exactly what happens when you don’t help your dog burn off their excess energy. If you’re not willing to take your dog out and exercise them every single day, then you need to seriously think about whether or not this is a responsibility that you’re ready for.

The cost

This is something that a lot of people really don’t want to think about, but the truth is that dogs cost money. Quite a lot of money in fact. Sure, there’s the obvious cost of buying a dog, especially if it’s a puppy for a pure breed, but even if you’re adopting a dog, there are still a lot of costs that you need to consider. For one thing, the simple cost of feeding a dog can be surprisingly high. Not only that but you’ve got bedding, toys, grooming, and a whole host of other things to consider. Then, when you factor in things like vets bills the costs just keep climbing. Now, these costs often aren’t enough to stop people wanting a new furry friend, but it’s definitely worth being aware of them in advance.

Leaving them alone

Your life isn’t going to just stop because you’ve got a dog, you’re still going to have to go to work, or see friends, or just leave the house to buy food. However, when you’ve got a dog, you have to consider the consequences of leaving them on their own. Dogs are social animals, and they don’t like being left alone. If you’re going to work all day, then consider having someone come and spend time with them, whether it’s your partner staying home with them, or hiring a dog sitter. Of course, if you’re in a position to, you might even want to take them to work with you!

Don’t think that this is all somehow meant to discourage you from getting a dog, far from it. There are thousands of dogs out there looking for loving homes to take them in. However, it’s a far too common occurrence that people take in dogs without really understanding the responsibility of doing so, which leads them to give them up not long after. That kind experience can be incredibly traumatic for a dog, and it can be very upsetting for your family as well. So make sure that bringing a dog into your home is the right decision for you and your family before you jump into anything.
