Appamate Mobile Game Review

So me and mike play ALOT of mobile games, from match 3 to shooting, jumping, fighting and puzzles, you name it we play it! So we got asked to review a few games, now some are android and there’s also one for Apple too which I was super chuffed about and so were the kids!!
Megan and laten loooove digital games and this one was no different!


ColorCone: an Apple App Store game which is Highly addictive! Your a little tri coloured cone and have to jump and get through the right coloured bars, sounds simple enough but there’s a twist, you can’t go up too high or down too low or you’ll shatter, the same goes with The coloured bars...this takes some getting used to but it’s highly addictive and playing with kids is sooo much fun!
We get very competitive, seeing who can get the highest number of completed bars we all took 2 goes then passed it to the next player so it was so much fun and the suspense is so intense!
Overall we loved this game and I totally recommend you go to the App Store now and download it!
This app is only available on App store but I'm sure it will be on google play very soon as its brilliant!

Next up is Fruit Candy Smash:
I liked the layout and style of this game but its not very explanatory, there isn't anything that tells you what to do so unless you have played this type of game before it will probably take a while to 'get it', that being said once you do get the hang of it, it gets very fun and challenging, not really something my kids would play but probably aimed more at teen/adults  Its only available on Google play store so far but I'm sure it will be on more platforms soon!

Lastly there is Bouncy Ball Flip:
I only got to play a little of this game and its really fun but also really hard if you don't have very good hand eye coordination like me! It's an addictive ball game where you control the gravity of two balls while jumping over spikes, Brilliant game for the kids and again they fought over who's turn was next because they loved it so much. This is available on Google Play store too! 

The other 3 games I was asked to review were Smash Dot and Space Racing 3D but unfortunately they kept force closing on my device so I was unable to play them.

I hope you enjoyed my little game review as much as we've enjoyed playing on them :D Let me know what you think in the comments below :D

Much Love

Taylor + Rani Underwear That Does Good

I was lucky enough to be sent a package from this brilliant little company Taylor + Rani, They sent me a set of beautiful matching underwear that is made so incredibly well! But that's not even the best part!

"For every pair of knickers purchased we donate a pair of knickers, for every bra or other product such as a scrunchie purchased, we give a monetary donation which goes towards the building of separate girls toilets at schools and to provide sanitary products for girls so that they do not have to halt their education on hitting puberty"- Taylor + Rani

Isnt that brilliant?! You buying Underwer that looks good is actually helping someone else too! and who doesn't love matching undies right?

Well its not just underwear they sell its other products too like Scrunchies and Greeting cards.

Check out the full story on the website HERE
tayor and ranitaylor and rani

The quality of these underwear products are incredible, they are so well made and the material is lycra soft and stretchy too! Perfect for the young budding teen or those just hitting the puberty stage, The bra is a racer back so not diggy on your shoulders with removable padding, it is all so reversible so on a day you don't want a pattern to show under a top it can be reversed to be just plain white.
All bras come with adjustable straps and also have matching boy shorts that can be purchased separately :)

3 DAYS IN HELL...A Weekend Without Meds

So Last week I went into my local chemist to pick up my anti-depressants, apparently my prescription wasn't ready and I had to wait a few days, I literally only had 2 left but they assured me it would be done by the Friday so it was fine, Friday came, still no tablets...then the panic set in, I knew that it would be a bad weekend without them, 4 kids and shit weather = staying in the house being a shouty mummy and bloody stressed.

Captains orders

So recently at our Chatterbooks club our theme for the week was Pirates, We had lots of colouring and crafts and a story too but the favourite of all was the game, Captains Orders.

Captains Orders is a game for a group of 5+ Players ... its a little like Simon says, one person/group leader gets to be the Captain, the captain then shouts out orders to the crew (the rest of the players) like ' captain says, scrub the deck' , 'captain says, row the boat' ect.. the players have to act out the order but only if the captain says 'captains orders' at the start.

How I Kicked My Depressions Butt!

So if you don't know I suffer with depression, I have for a very long time and after I had my second child I gradually got worse, my children were my safety and I woudn't be without them for fear of the worst!

Summer came and I saw a poster at my local library for volunteers for the summer reading challenge, I was just in the right age category and managed to push myself to apply, the library has always been one of my favourite places to take my children as its so calm but also so fun to explore so I knew that I would be kind of relaxed there and not so uptight or anxious, my application took a week or so then I was ready! I was nervous and anxious about leaving my children and meeting new people but I knew I had to push myself because one day id be going back to work.

With her handmade to order, personalised cards you can request whatever you like for a birthday card or even just a quote to hang on the wall of your home. Created using high quality 180gsm card that is perfect for framing, and a variety of inks and pens too you'll have the perfect piece to brighten up any room!

Louise has a variety of designs available including pets, love, positive quotes and coffee (which is always relevant for a tired mummy like me) But if you cant think of one you want personalised off the top of your head just take a look at what she already has but beware they're all so good it will be hard to choose and you'll probably end up buying quite a few!!

Christmas season is just around the corner and Louise had just started a range of gift tags and card to celebrate, as I mentioned above they are ALL handmade and individually drawn because Louise believes its more personal and unique to the customer which I think its very sweet and a lovely touch.
