Secret Crush Dolls

Secret Crush Dolls

MGAE are the undisputed overlords of the dolly blind box, but these sweetie themed ones had passed me by until I saw them on sale on Amazon. Aesthetically they reminded me a lot of the early days of Gwen Stefani's Harajuku Lovers perfume bottles and, mostly to make up for the fact I never gave in and bought one of those just because it was cute, I figured I'd take the plunge on the 13" Sundae Swirl and her mini best friend, Winnie Wafflecone. 

I wouldn't pay the RRP (£39.99), but for £19 I was very pleased with my purchase!

Secret Crush 13 Inch Dolls

So far there have been two large sets each containing a mini doll plus a 13" doll. There has also been a rebranded Lalaloopsy baking oven sized for the larger dolls.

I really tried not to like this line. Because, let's face it, MGA seem determined to undo the entire world's environmental efforts by packaging everything in 47 layers of plastic and encouraging an endless churn of limited play toys. But. They are so cute. After I bought myself one Amazon had reduced them again to £13, so I got one for Marianna too...

The downsides are that even with all that plastic, there is no stand for the big doll. And that thing is heavy. Seriously, you could probably bludgeon someone to death with it. Also it's a line designed around sweets that has no actual candy in it. Vigilance is needed to ensure your kid doesn't try to eat the smash plastic or the beads, certain as they are that no toy manufacturer would be so cruel as to deny them.

Marianna also managed to break the little plastic hammer before she was done smashing up the plastic into ever smaller pieces, and the small doll required more strength than she possessed to put together. This really isn't a toy a kid can open unsupervised. So, yeah, aesthetics 10/10 - execution 3/10.

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
