The Kiddies go to the Ice Cream Farm Cheshire

We have heard a lot about the  Ice Cream Farm Cheshire for many years now. But we have never had the opportunity to visit the park for ourselves. Well the opportunity and we had the time to spend over 4 hours there. It was a lovely experience. The kiddies had a great time. It was a lovely day out for the whole family. It was so good that I am already planning our next trip!

The school holidays are in full swing so the park is very busy as expected. But we didn’t have to queue up for too long for any of the rides or games. We got a yellow pass as soon as we got in. The pass allowed us get make use of the park at a discounted rate, which was great. The only issue I had with the yellow pass was that we couldn’t use it on many of the rides/games. We have to pay cash, which I found annoying. But asides that, I would recommend one of the passes if you plan to be at the park for hours.

 

Daisy’s Garden

Our first stop at the  Ice Cream Farm Cheshire was Daisy’s Garden. This is right in front of the entrance so it makes sense to start exploring from here. Plus it was free for the kids to play. They had a great time exploring the magical garden. There was a lot to climb, jump on and crawl into. It was so amazing.

Fudge Farm

Once we were done with Daisy’s Garden, we went off to the Fudge Farm to catch the train. The train took us round the farm and the kids enjoyed spotting the farm animals. It was £1 per person to get on the train, and the passes couldn’t be used here. But it was worth the ride. The ride was about 10 minutes.

Silvercone

Once we were done with exploring the Fudge Farm we went off to ride the race kids quad bikes at Silvercone. This was easily my favourite part of the park. I enjoyed riding the quad bikes with the kids. It felt like we were riding proper bikes on the road. It was so cool. The ride was about 5 minutes and it was £1 each. The passes can’t be use here as well.

 

Marshmallow Mould

The next stop was the Marshmallow Mould, which is pretty much like a trampoline in the shape of a mould. The kids loved bouncing on it. The yellow pass could be used here so that came in handy. The kids were bouncing on this for around 10 minutes. They were proper exhausted once their session here ended.

Strawberry Falls

The Strawberry Falls adventure golf course was great fun. The kids enjoyed playing golf (or more like chasing the balls into the holes). The best part about the Strawberry Falls for me was the beauty. The giant strawberries and strawberry water foundation are just too beautiful. It is one of the most beautiful parts of the park. It was good fun and we got the chance to use the yellow pass, which was a great way to save.

We spent quite a bit of time playing golf at the Strawberry Falls because there was a bit of queue. I guess all the other kids were loving the golf course a lot.

Horse Riding

The next activity was  horse riding. They really enjoyed this one. I was a bit worried about this because it was their first time riding a horse, but they were fine. They loved every bit of the ride.

We ended the day by exploring the Fun Factory Soft Play. The indoor adventure play barn was filled up with all sorts to keep the kiddies very busy. After an hour of soft play, we headed to the Ice Cream shop to get some award winning ice cream to take home. If you haven’t heard, Cheshire Ice Cream Farm has some of the best ice cream you would ever taste.

We had a lovely time at Ice Cream Farm Cheshire. And we are looking forward to visiting it again. It was s o much fun. The kiddies had an amazing time and so did we. I recommend it to anyone in search of what to do with the kids this summer or any other time  This is a gem right inside Cheshire, and it is worth checking out.

Clean Energy Drinks for Busy Mums

As a busy working mum of 2 very active toddlers, I am forever tired. Some days, I wake feeling tired. My kids are early birds, so my day usually starts from around 5:30am on a proper early day (thank you heat wave). Or it can be as late but never later than 7:45am. And the chaos start from wake up time to bed time for 7pm (ish). I work from home, so I have to balance the family life and work life from the same roof, and make it all work somehow. Which is tiring on most days. Which is why I find myself taking anything that promises to give me some kind of energy.

 

Clean Energy Drinks Image

 

I have recently come across a new drink – Flyte Clean Energy, and I was eager to try it. A pack landed on my doorstep some days ago, and I have been busy drinking. These energy drinks are not like your regular energy drinks. These are clean energy drinks, which means it is 100% sourced from nature. It has low calories and powered by organic caffeine. I got the Clean Mango and Red Berry flavours and I think they taste great! The bottles are so cute. I think they are really pretty and handy. The fact that I can open a bottle and finish it later thanks to the lid is great.

Flyte Clean Energy Green Mango

This energy drink is tasty. I love it when it’s chilled. It has a dry taste and it is great for those mornings when you need a little pick me up. It works like a dream! I love the colour a lot too.

 

Flyte Clean Energy Red Berries

This energy drink has a lovely taste. I like the light subtle berry flavour. It is a great drink to have in the afternoon as an alternative to your regular cup of coffee. It saves the day when you are feeling drained.

Secrets Of A Fashionista: What To Pack For A Summer Vacation

It doesn’t matter whether you’re planning your annual all-inclusive getaway to some far-flung exotic destination or whether you are simply heading to a Balearic to escape the winter chill, you need to know what to pack and how to pack it to get the most out of your holiday. Just because your travelling or venturing on a long haul flight doesn’t mean you have to forfeit your fashionista credentials. It simply means you need to think a little more outside of the box to ensure you are able to take all of your desired attire, beauty products and accessories with you. With baggage allowances remaining pretty stringent, there’s no way you can take your entire summer wardrobe alongside your extensive range of makeup and skincare items. Instead, you need to pack light and smart.

Many people now prefer to travel with cabin luggage only. This means you can keep your belongings with you at all times and there’s little risk of your suitcase ending up in Iceland when you’ve travelled to Ibiza. However, this also means your bag is smaller, and you have to be even more efficient with your use of space. Take a look at how you can pack wisely and fashionably for your escape to the sun.

Clothing

It goes without saying that the majority of your packing will be taken up with your choice of attire. The best thing about heading somewhere where the weather is reliably hot, sunny and balmy for extended periods is that you don’t have to take any monster chunky knits or duffle coats that can take up an obscene amount of space in your bag. Instead, you’ll be looking at the lighter linen based pieces. You could choose two or three summer dresses from Anthony’s ladies apparel collection, a few sarongs, light tops and a shawl or long sleeved top for those chillier evenings. These items of clothing will roll effectively ready for you to pack. Rolling instead of folding not only saves space but also prevents creasing meaning that you can land, head to your hotel, check-in and whip on a summer dress without the need to iron beforehand.

If you’re heading off on a fortnight-long jaunt, take enough clothing to last your holiday. With the thinner, lighter fabric clothing that you’ll be taking, you will be surprised just how much you can squeeze into a 40-litre capacity holdall. Put your socks into your shoes and ensure you leave the chunkier items of clothing at home.

For those evenings where you want to dance the night away, or you fancy a trip to a top-notch restaurant to experience a culinary masterpiece, a pair of more formal shoes and a clutch bag to match with your summer dress will ensure you look elegant. Utilising elements of a capsule wardrobe frame of mind when packing for your summer holiday always comes in handy.

Beauty

If you love nothing more than opening your drawers and cupboards full of a wide variety of makeup products each morning to apply the finishing touches to your daily beauty routine, you may have to think again when it comes to taking your kit on holiday. Liquid limits on UK flight dictate you can have only 100ml of each separate liquid you wish to take on holiday in clear containers in cabin luggage. This means you may have to think wisely as to whether you can go without your smoothing serum or anti-ageing cream for a fortnight. Remember, you probably aren’t travelling to a destination where they don’t have shops! Anything you can’t squeeze into your bag, you can locate when you land.

At the very least you should take moisturiser, cleanser, a toner and an exfoliator. With these for essential items, you will still be able to care for your skin while away from home. If you love watersports, taking in the rays on the beach or getting active in the sun, your skin needs protection. Purchase the highest quality sun cream that you can and keep reapplying throughout the day. The integral moisturiser within these lotions will also keep your skin supple and hydrated.

When packing your beauty products, the worst thing that could possibly happen is opening your bag on landing to discover a mini explosion amongst your clothes. To limit the chances of this happening, package your liquids in containers and ensure they are sealed. Package these containers in a well-sealed toiletry bag so that there is that extra insurance layer between the liquids and your clothes.

Camera

If you are a selfie addict and love nothing more than being in every shot of your vacation, then a smartphone may well suffice for your needs. However, if you like to think of yourself as a budding photographer, you might want to consider ditching the Holga and Valencia filters and branching out into a travel DSLR piece of kit. With more manual controls and greater resolutions, you could create the perfect landscape shots, candid close-ups and sophisticated holiday snaps that will enable you to document your memories.

Powerpack

Even if you aren’t venturing to the middle of nowhere and you are planning on staying firmly with civilisation, you should consider packing a powerpack. These nifty bits of kit can charge up your camera battery, smartphone and MP3 player on the go, meaning that if you have forgotten to charge something the night before or if you’re on a mammoth bus tour or train journey, you can still listen to your favourite tunes and take some awesome shots. Being comfortable will make your holiday all that more enjoyable.

If you’re heading to a far-flung destination this summer to catch some rays, take a dip in the sea, enjoy a snorkel or simply relax by a pool, think about how you are going to pack for your holiday. Use this guide as inspiration to ensure you don’t surrender your fashionista credentials when you venture away from home.
