LIFESTYLE: THINGS TO DO WITH A TODDLER NEAR SOLIHULL THIS SUMMER

With the summer holidays nearly here I thought i'd share a few days out that we have done recently or intend to do over the next few weeks. It can be overwhelming choosing things to do especially during the summer holidays as places can get really busy and you can end up spending loads of money trying to fill your weeks with things to do with the kids. As Amelia is only 1 we don't have to worry about the school holidays just yet but it's nice to have a few things planned whilst the weather is good! Most of these days out are affordable and within 2 hours of Solihull/ Birmingham. 



DAY AT THE BEACH - Our nearest beach is Weston Super-Mare which is about a 2 hour drive and I think it's totally worth it if the weather is good! There's a huge beach so the kids can make sandcastles all day long. Loads of arcades, fish and chips and donkey rides! Such a good day out, you just need to fill the car up but don't really need to spend loads of money. Why not bring a picnic along! 


If you don't fancy a 2 hour drive then try Bosworth Water Park, its about 45 minutes away from Solihull and they have huge lakes, sand, peddle boats, mini golf! It's great, we went a few weeks ago on a really sunny day and it was fab, Amelia had a dip and played in the sand! We brought a picnic along too! The only thing is the car parking is quite expensive so take that into account. 


If you don't drive but fancy a day on a beach then head into Touchwood because their Safari beach is now open!! They have loads of buckets and spades, deck chairs and it's free!! 





 Amelia absolutly loves feeding the ducks! We take her to Brueton/ Malvern Park in Solihull town centre. We head over to the Parkridge nature reserve where they sell duck/bird seed for 50p a bag and go along to feed the ducks. Sometimes we bring a picnic and make a day of it and sometimes we just go of an afternoon to kill some time.


St Nicholas Park in Warwick is one of my favourite things to do in the summer. It's a great day out! The parking is cheap, bring a picnic (there is a little cafe) Theres a sandpit, climbing frame/ park and the paddling pool, theres also some fairground rides. This is such a great cheap day out especially when the weather is good!


Strawberry picking, we did this right at the beginning of the season and we want to do it again. Another cheap day out! We went to Manor Fruits Farm over Tamworth way but theres a few dotted around. We liked Manor Fruits because they had a little cafe and kids bouncy castles too!



FARM - This is Umberslade farm which is our absolute fave! It's such a good day out, theres loads to do pony rides, tractor rides, holding the small animals, brushing the ponies, feeding the calfs! It's about £9 for an adult but such a lovely day out, you can spend all day there, theres a cafe and the prices are reasonable or theres loads of picnic benches to bring a packed lunch!

We also liked Atwell Farm, this was a bit cheaper but I found there were less animals. They so however have a huge soft play area, a good playground and outside bouncy castle, fire engine and tractor for the kids to play on. There's a coffee shop and gift shop too!

Sheldon Country park is fab too! They are currently renovating the kids playground but it's meant to be ready for the holidays. The farm is free and its small but cute. Theres a little tea room here. 


A few days out we have planned over next few weeks include, Alton Towers Waterpark, I want to visit a Lavender Field for cute pics obvs, Strawberry picking again and Stratford Upon Avon Rec.
Is there anywhere else we need to check out this summer? We are trying to keep to a budget so not mega expensive places.  What do you have planned for the summer? 

BEAUTY: THIS WORKS PERFECT BODY RANGE



I've been loving the This Works perfect body range and though i'd share my thoughts on the collection so far.  I've been using these products for a few weeks now and wanted to let you know how i'm getting on.

First up is my favourite product from the range, Perfect Legs Skin Miracle! OMG this product is amazing!! It's a moisturiser for your legs and it leaves them feeling super soft and hydrated. Enriched with Vitamin C and E to even out skin tone and restructure the skin, caramel for a warmth adding tint and Arnica to even out skin tone and fade brusing. It's leaves the legs feeling super soft and hydrated and leaves them with a subtle glow! It's just gorgeous! It's blends in so well so leaves no streaks. It gives you a soft, natural glow. You can actually use this all over too!

Along side the Perfect Legs Skin miracle I use the Perfect Legs 100% Natural scrub, this is an exfoliating balm which naturally exfoliates and restores moisture! I like to use it every few days/ once a week to get rid of any dullness. It smells incredible too and is an Eco-friendly scrub. Use this and the Perfect Legs Skin Miracle for the most amazing pins ever!!


The Perfect Cleavage Firming lotion is lovely, it's a lightweight moisturiser designed for the sensitive skin on the neck and chest! This is an area that women find goes wrinkly and can cause us to look older that we want to let on. Apply this daily to brighten, tighten, firm, and nourish damaged skin. This is an area that can be overlooked when applying moisturiser. I've been using this for  afew weeks and it's just such a lovely product.

Last but not least is the Perfect Heels Rescue Balm. This product is perfect for bringing back the moisture and repairing damaged heels and feet. Massage it into the skin to combat dry cracked heels. It's a nice product not too greasy/ balmy. It dries into the skin well and quickly, I tend to pop it on before bed or if i'm wearing sandals I will apply it during the day.

There's loads of great offers on right now so head over to the This Works website to check out the Perfect body range!

[AD]: URBAN VEDA RADIANCE HYDRATING RANGE


I've been loving the Radiance hydrating range from Urban Veda, it's perfect for the warmer weather were having as it really hydrates the skin. The range includes a day and night cream, hydrating toner and even a body wash and body lotion. I've been using the radiance day cream and radiance hydrating toner so thought i'd share my thoughts.

First up both products smell incredible, even Clint has commented on the scent as it's just so lovely. It's a fresh, clean, floral smell, it's just gorgeous but not overpowering. The range is enriched with brightening Tumeric extract to brighten even the dullest complexion. 

The day cream is light-weight which is perfect for the summer months, it dries into the skin super quick and preps the skin ready for the day. UrbanVeda Tumeric is designed to naturally balance environmental factors with botanicals to help skin lock in moisture and retain it's natural glow. The papaya and Goji berry extract is enriched with a cell-repairing amino-acid complex to help correct signs of hyperpigmentation, boost complexion and balance skin tone. I've noticed a real difference in my skin, it has more of a natural glow and feels more plump and hydrated. I've also noticed the wrinkles on my forehead appear less prominent, this is due to the Ayurvedic arjuna extract which is clinically proven to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

The hydrating toner is lovely, I apply it to the skin with a cotton pad in circular motions as instructed. It removes all traces of make up and balances the PH level of your skin to boost hydration. It's a really lovely, gentle product. It doesn't sting and leaves the skin feeling really clean and subtle. Again the Tumeric, Papaya and Goji berry work together to hydrate and brighten the skin.

I'm really enjoying the range so far and have noticed a real difference to my skin straight away. I have been using both products morning and evening, I think I will invest in the night cream as the day cream is lovely and i'm sure it won't disappoint. If you shop over on Fragrance Direct right now you can Save 10% if you spend £50 and you can also get a free gift if you buy 2 or more products from Urban Veda.
