Wine Slinky Balloon Sleeve Bardot Mini Dress Now I loved this dress on the website it looked so classy . It is lovely just sadly too short for me.

    JD bug junior kids scooter from Skates: review

    We were sent two JD bug junior scooters from Skates for free in return for an honest review. All opinions are my own. There are only so many walks you can do with the kids before you start to hear the words, I’m bored !!!! With a year of lockdowns and restrictions we have been on more walks than we have ever been on before. Then adding a dog into our family who also needs walking daily has made a walk in the woods less appealing. However I do worry about how much screen time my two have so I try anything to get them away from their screens and…
