BECOME THE ULTIMATE STYLE SAVIOUR | FAILFIX FASHION DOLLS


When it comes to dolls, the girls are crazy on them . They love nothing more than to get them all out , set up a scene and get stuck in with their role playing .

Alessia was kindly gifted the latest Fail Fix dolls to test out and she couldn’t wait . She had actually seen the advert on the television and had already had her heart set on putting them on her Xmas list! :)

The dolls vary and there are quite a few to collect . We got sent the Dance Stylz  doll and Kawaii Qtee, who Nila decided to fall in love with!



Each Fail fix doll set includes :

  • A pair of shoes
  • A surprise outfit 
  • A pair of earrings
  • A beautiful necklace
  • A magic spa mask
  • A removable failed face


It’s make over time!,Let’s get this party started!.

First we found all the treasures that were hiding in their hair : shoes , earrings and a necklace. The girls love blind bags so this was so much fun for them and makes the fail fix dolls even more unique.



Pop on the magic mask and give your dolls a good hair brush and brush out the disaster! .This can take a while but the hair ends up super soft once it’s brushed . Dancer Stylz  has really cool braids in her hair and Kawaii Qtee has lovely rainbow pink strands in hers.



Now it’s time to reveal the surprise outfit which is hidden with a ‘pretend, dressing gown robe. The girls loved Dancer stylz’s dress, super cool! Plus they both do dance so now want the same dress as her :)

Pop off the magic mask to reveal the magical transformation!




The dolls are super cute once transformed and are ready to rumble . We absolutely love these fail fix dolls and can definitely say they are such a new cool step up from dolls which are going to be an absolute hit .



The girls have asked for all the other ones from the collection for Christmas and have been mixing and matching all the different accessories when playing , they are hooked.

They retail at £19.99 and can be found in Smyths Toys

THE IMPORTANCE OF PASTORAL CARE IN SCHOOLS

To learn effectively, children need to feel secure and safe within the school environment. School should be a place where children feel heard and understand that their feelings and thoughts count for something. 



A SUNDAY WELL SPENT | CINEMA ARCADES AND DINNER OUT

Today we have had such a fun filled day . We don’t always go out on Sundays as they are usually our day of staying in or going for a walk before dinner .


LESSIE’S FIRST DAY IN YEAR 7 | NEW SCHOOL & NEW YEAR

This morning I have had the worst knots in my stomach sending Alessia off to school but she has been looking forward to this day all through the holidays and could not wait to get to school this morning.


AFTERNOON TEA | MUMMY DAUGHTER DAY

With Lessie going back to school next week I wanted to take her out  on her own and have a mummy daughter day as lock down has been extremely tough on all of us but I think Alessia has really struggled .


She is definitely a peoples person and loves being around all her friends so when lock down hit , I could see her going into her shell more and more each week .

So with only a week to go until school starts , I booked us in for afternoon tea which both of us have never had before and we were really excited !.

The teapot in Milton have also been taking part in the eat out to help out so it was really affordable and the pictures on the website looked incredible.



We arrived and out came  the array of goodies - a big pot of  tea , sausage rolls , pork pies , salad and nachos to start with.  I love my tea and I actually drank the whole pot :) Alessia opted for apple juice instead .

We giggled so much and talked about school and what else we needed to get before the big day . She has been so excited for school and she is actually changing schools this year which is even more nerve wracking but she is full of excitement.

We discussed any worries she might of had and if there was anything she wanted to ask the school before starting . We have a transition afternoon just before she starts so anything she wants to ask she can then .



Out came our tray of sandwiches , cakes and scones , and lots of fresh strawberries. We had cream cheese sandwiches, tuna and pickle and cheese . They were delicious and we were getting so stuffed by this point , we didn’t know what to finish up with :)

We asked for a take away box and took the rest of it home to have for dinner that night which was lovely of the lady to let us do.



We finished the afternoon off with a bit of school shopping and it was such a lovely day . Having three children , I really try and make the time for one on one days or little trips out as it really does mean so much to them and it also gives you that little special time with each other.

We are all set for school now and have really enjoyed the summer holidays.
