Lisa Frank Fab Friends

Lisa Frank Fab Friends

Before there was Smiggle there was Lisa Frank, churning out colourful dolphins, panda and unicorn emblazoned stationery and other goods for tween girls across the world. Back in 2000 Lisa Frank teamed up with Play Along to release a doll line called Fab Friends. Initially consisting of three girls called Lisa, Cassie and Mara, the latter was later dropped in favour of new friend Vega.

The dolls stood 11 inches tall, had rooted hair, and came packaged with pets and skate shoes. Then skate shoes and a shoe box. There were also smaller dolls (c. 10 inches) available packaged with a bag, extra shoes, and plastic cell phone.

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
