Dolls House – Naminé loves to play dolls house, we got the perfect one for her including animals, cars etc.
Kids Mini Sofa – So the girls can sit together in the front room without their pads screeching down our ears!
Bath Colours – For a bit of fun in the bath.
Kidizoom Kids Camera – Kairi has got really into wanting to use cameras at the moment, so this will be perfect for her.
Polaroid Cube – I love the cube, it’s small, compact and simple to use, but best of all it takes great quality footage and fits on your keys!
Go Pro Hero – Everyone has heard of the Go Pro, it’s perfect for underwater shots, action footage, and even daily vlogs. I love the fun in this camera, its not big and bulky, meaning I can pop in into your bag and have it whenever I need it.
Canon G7X – The G7X is the best vlogging camera out there. Perfect for taking pictures and filming out and about, I really need this in my life!!
Capture By Lucy – When my wonderful friend Aby brought me an amazing Capture By Lucy backdrop, I was immediately in love and needed more!
Elegant Theme – Divi is an AMAZING theme, it’s so adaptable and can do everything and anything I want. No learning code, no spending hours screaming at WordPress begging it to do what I need want, just click, type and drag and bingo, there is my beautiful new site and amazingly laid out post.

I want a bit of downtime where I can actually relax knowing the work is still being done! As a VA myself, you could hire me!
My Cloud – Network Access Storage (or NAS) is completely the way forward, you leave it plugged in at home and can access your files from everywhere. We had a My Cloud in the past and it was amazing (until Daddy and the girls managed to CRASH it to the floor!) I need a new one asap, I hate having to delete my files never to have them back!
