Choosing a mobile for your child this Christmas – What to Consider

Kids and TechnologyTechnology holds a special power over the children of today. There’s nothing that raises a toothy grin or sparks a high pitched squeal on Christmas day more than a brand new gadget, which is why people like giving as much as receiving the latest technology.

A Little Bit of Sparkle for Christmas

aspensjewellers

online jewelleryYou know what they say, ‘diamonds are a girl’s best friend’ and personally for me I love nothing than timeless classic pieces of jewellery.  Whether it’s a statement piece for a special occasion or something for every day it’s a sure fire way to find a way to my heart if you turn up with a beautifully wrapped gift box containing jewellery, whether it’s new, antique, vintage or pre-owned jewellery.

A Big Win for Christmas!

online bingo websitesWe all know what an expensive time Christmas can be for many families; with a typical family spends more than £820 on Christmas, according to YouGov.  So wouldn’t it be fabulous if you could have a big windfall online to help ease the cost?

I enjoy bingo, it’s a fun game and going out with the girls for a night out we always have a giggle.  Best of all with the surge in online bingo it’s never been easier (or more fun) to get the girls in and have a take away, a few bottles of wine and start enjoying some of the great sign up offers that are often available for those that are online bingo ‘newbies’ and are dipping their toes in the water of online bingo for the first time.
