Life Made More - Spring with Fashion World

My spring wishlist with

For a few brief moments this afternoon the sun was shining, the sky was blue, and I could almost imagine this endless winter to be finally over. It made me start thinking about the kind of shoes and clothing I can't wait to see Marianna in this year, without the gloves, coat and scarf!

I've been checking out the gorgeous kids range over at Fashion World and loving the fresh styles and bright colours. Just look at this beautiful Monsoon ladybird print dress - it's fit for a princess. (Or, at the very least, a three year old who thinks she's a princess.)

Monsoon Ladybird Print Dress from Fashion World

In fact, the range includes so many pretty dresses that even the most exacting budding fashionista is sure to be spoiled for choice. Here are a few more of my favourites:


First up is the Monsoon Corelia 2 in 1 Dress (£30), with sequin detailing on the neckline and the mermaid tails! I love the full skirt, and how the striped bodice adds to the kind of nautical air which is fitting for a would be mermaid. Next we have the Monsoon Evelyn Unicorn Dress (£26). Again, the dress is a lovely shape, and next to mermaids unicorns are Marianna's favourite mythical creature. :)

My final dress pick is the Monsoon Fruity Frill Dress (£26). The colours in this are so pretty together, and it will be perfect as the weather - hopefully! - continues to get warmer and we move from Spring into Summer.


Of course, no outfit is complete without a fabulous pair of shoes. My favourites are the blue patent Start Rite Sunflower (£40), pictured on the left. T-bars are the cutest shoes for little girls, in my opinion, and the delicate colour is just perfect for Spring. Marianna, wanting to be involved in what I was doing, decided that the pair on the right - the Sparkle Club Pink Sparkly Low Heeled Shoes With a Pink Bow (£24) - were the most beautiful princess shoes she had ever seen. Who can argue with that?


Fashion World also sell a great range of toys for outdoor play - and indoor too for when the British weather just can't help reverting to type! Here we have a Ring Toss game (£16), Little Tikes kid active pop up play set (£30), Paw Patrol Marshall Bubble Machine (£15), Fairy Watering Can and Bean Pots (£25), and the very spring looking Bush Baby World Princess Blossom (£20) and a Hatchimals Colleggtibles Secret Scene Playset (£25).

Simply Cook Review

I kept seeing ads and deals for Simply Cook everywhere, so as there was a special offer on at OhMyDosh! Rewards (£3 for the box and £3.50 cashback) I figured I had nothing to lose by giving it a try. What Is It? Recipe kits packed into boxes which fit through your letterbox. The usual price is £9.99 for a kit of 4, with each one serving 2-4 people depending on your serving sizes. All you need to do is buy the fresh ingredients required and follow the instructions. Here is Simply Cook's own helpful diagram: Does It Work? For me, as the person just eating it, it was awesome. Everything tasted great - the mushroom penne in particular was so good I went back for seconds - and I liked that the sauces weren't as rich as Anthony would usually make them. For Anthony, who cooked them, they weren't as impressive. He complained that the food was bland and that it was actually quite a lot of faff, as Lidl didn't stock everything we needed which meant another trip ou

Guide to Sindy Houses

As far as 1/6 scale doll houses go, Sindy's Super Home is fairly ubiquitous. It's a good size, it isn't made out of pink plastic, and you can pick one up on eBay for under £50. But the Super Home wasn't Sindy's only foray into property ownership. In fact she had numerous different houses, caravans, stables, and other buildings... 1970 Sindy's Town House Though this was advertised in the 1970 brochure, it doesn't seem to have ever made it into production. 1973 Sindy's House This one apparently made it into limited production, but was flimsy and was soon replaced. According to the Sindy Museum , it had four rooms, decorated as a bedroom, bathroom, kitchen and lounge. You can see part of the house used for photos in the 1974 catalogue . 1974 Sindy's House Existing examples appear to have been competition wins, so it is unlikely this house was ever on general sale.
