What an absolutely busy month April has been. The first half of the Easter holidays we were away on holiday. The second half we fitted quite a few things in and the whole month seems to have flown by. 

Other than watching Luca on Disney plus for what has felt like the 100th time this month I've watched a good few series too.


Bridgerton Season 2

I loved season one so had to watch the second season and I wasn't disappointed. The second season  is mainly focused on Anthony Bridgerton seeking to find a wife.

Anatomy of a scandal

Based on the book of the same name by Sarah Vaughan. Sophie's privileged life as the wife of powerful politician James unravels when scandalous secrets surface — and he stands accused of a shocking crime.

Hold Tight

Another series based on a book by Harlan Coben. When a young man goes missing soon after his friend dies, life in a tight-knit, affluent Warsaw suburb slowly unravels, laying bare secrets and lies. I personally feel its not one of the best series from Harlan Coben.

Emma (2020)

Based on the classic novel by Jane Austen. Emma is a self-proclaimed matchmaker who meddles in the love lives of her friends. Her misguided matches and romantic missteps lead her to find love that has been there all along. I've been meaning to watch it since the film came out and only just got round to watching it.


This popped up as a reccomendation and is what I'm currently watching. It was originally on BBC back in 2017 (season 1) and 2020 (season 2) but I've not seen it before. Liar is the story of two people who go on a romantic date which changes both their lives and those of their friends and families. Laura Nielson is a smart and capable teacher in the middle of a break-up, and she is set up on a date with recently widowed surgeon Andrew. However, the day after the date it is apparent that something has gone wrong, and the subsequent fallout rapidly spirals out of control, exposing the power of truth, deception and trust.


I've not blogged much at all this month as we have been pretty busy. When I have had down time and/or time to myself I've been spending it either watching something on Netflix or reading. I've read 7 books this month 3 of which are quick reads.

Violife | 100% Vegan Cheese

Ad/Gifted – The Violife Vegan Cheese range featured in this post was gifted to me in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts are my own.

Over the past few months I've been adding more Vegan/plant based meals into my diet. I like having a few meals a week that 1are Vegan and there are alot more Vegan products to choose from in supermarkets. I was recently contacted to try out some of Violife's Vegan cheese products. 

Violife are a range of vegan alternative to cheese products. They are free from dairy, preservatives, casein, lactose, gluten, nuts and soya. It is based on coconut oil and is fortified with Vitamin B12, which plays an important role in the metabolism of every cell in our bodies.

Whether you enjoy cheese sliced in your sandwiches, spread on your bagel, sprinkled on your pasta or melted on your pizza, Violife is the vegan alternative to cheese that tastes and cooks great! If you are trying Vegan cheese out for the first time please note, it does take a while to get used to vegan cheese as it is very different to cheese made from dairy products. 


 Ad/Gifted – The Giant Bubble Set featured in this post was gifted to me from Wicked Uncle in exchange for this post. All thoughts are my own.

Bubbles are a huge hit with Blake, infact I don't know a child who doesn't love bubbles. Bubbles are a great activity especially for kids as they are cheap and keep kids entertained for ages.  We have quite a few different bubble sets such as a science kit, bubble machine, bubble wands etc which are all popular with Blake. 

Giant Bubbles are even more fun and this Giant Bubble Kit from Wicked Uncle is amazing, easy to use and provides hours of fun!
