Our Family Holiday to South Devon

Our Family Holiday to South Devon

Last week me and my little family went for 5 day holiday to Paignton in South Devon, Along With Laura from Mindmoodmommy. We stayed on a holiday camp called Waterside which is part of the Park Holidays group.

 We stayed in a caravan that was just a perfect size for me, my fiancé and my two girls. The best part about our caravan was how clean it was, It was truly pristine. The camp has it own heated outdoor swimming pool, a little convience shop, entertainment venue and a restaurant. Checking in was at 4pm and we were quickly handed our keys and there wasn’t too much waiting round.

The first night we were there we all were very tired from the journey down, so we decided we would grab some dinner from the spinning wheel pub. This pub is on the sea front in Paignton and is one pub I have been using since I was a little girl. The food has always been amazing but this time the menu had changed and there wasn’t a lot of choice.

After we Finished our dinner we took the girls for a walk along the sea front

We ventured onto the pier so my girls could have a go on the 2p machines which they love. Once all the money was spent we went and purchased an ice cream and sat on the play park.

Just on Paignton’s sea front there is a play park filled with climbing ropes slides and even a trampoline. Best thing about this is its free and kept my children occupied for an hour.

The next day we thought it may be a nice idea to go over to Torquay and Visit living coasts.

Living coasts is a sea life zoo filled with animals such as penguins and seals.

The best way and also the most fun way to visit Torquay is by travelling by boat, So we drove to Brixham and parked the car, we then caught the ferry from Brixham Harbour to Torquay.

whilst on the boat the Captain gives a brief talk on the surrounding areas.

When we arrived at Living Coasts there was an offer on, the offer was called a Zooper Ticket. This was one ticket that you brought that covered the cost for Living Coasts and Paignton zoo. This was a much cheaper option so we purchased it.

Living Coasts has a Good Variety of animals including seals, fish and may types of sea birds and penguins.

The next day we decided to visit Paignton zoo, Now I don’t generally like zoo’s as I find them very expensive and not worth the money, but this zoo really is the best zoo I’ve ever been to. It has a huge Variety of animals and they have very spacious enclosures which kept the girls occupied for at least 5 hours.

There were talks with keepers throughout the day as well as opportunities to watch Various animals being fed.

There was also two play parks within the park which really helped keep the kids occupied.

The last day of our holiday we decided to go to the beach, which is something that needs to be done when on holiday at the seaside. We chose Goodrington Beach as our destination. This beach really does have everything needed to have a fun day, there is an arcade, ice cream shop, pub and little gift shop on site as well as Quaywest water park for all the thrill seekers.

The weather wasn’t great but this didn’t stop my girls from playing in the sea.

Overall we had a lovely few days away, Devon really is beautiful place and its perfect for a short holiday.

A Review: Run Baby Running Belt

31UFsh5wUDL

 

I was sent this product for free for an honest review.

I am currently in a Get Fit state of mind, I take part in a Zumba class and a Boogie Bounce Class, but I don’t feel like that’s enough so I thought I would start running a couple of times a week to. So when I spotted that Run Baby wanted Bloggers to review the belt I jumped at the chance.

When the belt arrived I checked that it was compatible with my phone. I have a Samsung note 3, which is quite a big phone so I was impressed that it did indeed fit. I was also able to hang my house keys off the clip provided.

I was due to go to my Zumba class when the belt arrived so I decided to use the belt to keep my phone in as there is limited space to put your belongings in the room. I adjusted it so it was a good fit and I wore it underneath my gym top. The belt never slipped up and down with each move I did, and I forgot it was there.

I liked the fact that I could keep my belongings close to me while I exercised. I don’t usually take my phone to the class due to lack of space, but having two young children I like to make sure I am available to speak to if a problem arrises at home,  so this belt was the perfect solution.

The next night I couldn’t sleep and decided I would go for a run, I put my phone in the belt along with my keys and off I went. It was nice to have some time just me and my music which I listened to threw my Bluetooth headset. The belt worked a treat although I didn’t tighten it enough so it did slip up and down a couple of times as I ran.

I’m really impressed with this product and its perfect for anybody who runs, goes to fitness classes and even the gym.

This Product can be purchased from <a href="http://www.amazon.co.uk/Adjustable-Exercise-comfortable-Run-Baby/dp/B00XUKMPI2/ref=sr_1_15?

A Review: Natural Beauty Slimming Tan Tablets

b2f55a5c-32e2-4e4c-9f0d-c4f2c4ecddd5

Natural Beauty Slimming is the fastest growing name in the food supplement world, and I have followed them from the start. This company has grown bigger and bigger as people are trying these natural supplements to help give them a boost with there weight loss, Instead of using processed diet foods.

They sell a wide variety of natural supplements including weight loss supplements and beauty supplements. But that’s not all their are Reps all over the country that give advice to their customer’s as well as lots of praise when they achieved there goals.

One of the things that I feel is most amazing about this company is the support that is given to each and every customer, Not just by the reps but also the founder of the company.

When I was asked to test a product in return for an honest review I was thrilled. I decided to try the tan tablets, as I have seen lots of success stories about them and let’s be honest who doesn’t feel good when they are bronzed.

bottle%20white304072014133523_lrg

My tablets came very quickly and I just couldn’t wait to try them. The Directions for use are clearly printed on the bottle and I was instructed to take one pill after my main meal.

I took my first one that same day, I did find that the tablets were quite large but with a good swig of water they were easy to take. I also took before pictures of my arms and legs so I could compare.

So now it was time to wait to see results, Natural Beauty Slimming say that results should start to show after about two weeks of taking them and they were right. After two weeks I started to see a difference in skin colour, instead of my white pasty skin tone, I now had a light bronzed look.

So as you can see they do in fact work, and they have made me feel very good about myself.

So Whats In This Amazing Product

There are only a few ingredients in these tablets and they are as follows.

  • Para-Aminobenzoic Acid 200mg
  • L-Tyrosine 200mg
  • Copper Gluconate 2mg

They are also Gluten free and suitable for vegetarians.

These tablets work by a build up of carotenoids, The active Carotenoids in these tablets is a substance called canthaxanthin. Once the tablet is taken this substance is carried through the body and is absorbed where it attaches itself to the fat cells that are found under the skin. this fat layer is darkened by the pigment and shows through the skin.

The tan will only stay while you are taking the tablets.

I was very impressed with the result and I am loving my bronzed skin.

If you would like bronzed skin the safe way then purchase yours now from the Natural Beauty Slimming website.

A Review: Bar Brat Iceball Maker

61lL2HzxefL__SL1500_

I was sent the Bar Brat Ice ball maker to test and review.

When the ice maker arrived I tried it out straight away and what I found was I could make perfect ball ice cubes. These are great to use in any drinks and can add a bit of pizzaz to water or cocktails.

The instructions are clearly printed on the box and are easy to follow. The mould is made from silicone which make helps the ice balls come out with ease.

20150712_154906

I filled the water 3 quarters full like I was instructed to do and I carefully placed the lid on. a bit of water did pop out but that didn’t matter. I left it in the freezer for 4 hours. I carefully opened the mould and there were four balls of ice, as you can see from the photo below there was a bit of ice around the ball but that came away when I removed them from the mould.

20150713_205546

My other half enjoys a glass of whiskey but unfortunately we didn’t have any, but we did have tequila so I made him a glass of that. I then added an ice ball and what looked like a boring glass of yellow liquid now looked like a sophisticated drink.

20150713_205724

I don’t really drink alcohol at home but I do drink sparkling water so I decided to add some fruit to the water before putting in the mould in the freezer. When the balls had frozen they looked interesting and full of colour.

20150715_191104

Infused water is all the rage at the minute and I wanted to see if this did the same job. As the ice ball melted I did taste hints of the fruit that I added to the water and it turned my boring glass of water into a fruit infused drink.

20150715_191201

This Ice ball maker is great to add to all drinks to make them look more interesting and impressive, it would also be a great addition to a dinner party.

A Review: Bonapiel Anti Cellulite and Body Firming Cream

<img style="display: none" src="http://www.tomoson.com/images

I Was sent this product to test and review.

The product came from Amazon and arrived very quickly.

When it arrived I decided I would start Using it that night after I had a shower. My problem areas are my hips and bum so that's were I used the cream.

Bonapiel firming cream has caffeine and retinol as part of its ingredients which are the active ingredients that help reduce cellulite. Caffeine used in cellulite products is known to help get rid of even the most stubborn of cellulite as well as reducing water retention and fat cell clusters which improves circulation and skin appearance.

The retinol ingredient works well for firming the skin as it increases collagen production which helps the skin to look younger and keep elasticity.

The cream has a menthol smell which I found quite relaxing, I used a small amount on each thigh and bum cheek,  I then massaged it in until it was absorbed. When the cream was absorbed it did leave a sticky residue but that only lasted for around five minutes.

I have been using this cream every night for around 2 weeks and I have noticed a difference. My skin feels soft and smooth and the cellulite that was there has reduced.

Bonapiel anti cellulite and firming cream not only works but it also is affordable.

So if you want to get rid of Unwanted cellulite then purchase your now from Amazon.
