I was contacted by the lovely people at WILF Booksasking if they could guest post on my blog to let all you all know about their new sharing-based children's book delivery service. Now you all know how much I love books so I'm very happy to help. I think it's a fantastic idea and I'm very delighted to spread the word of this service that they are offering.
This week's Book Review Monday Is a special one as I'm a part of a blog book tour. I'm very excited to be a part of the Following Evan by Elida May blog book tour. The week before last on the 16th I was lucky enough to be a part of the release dayblitzfor Following Evan.
The story intrigued me from the moment I read the information I was given about this novel. I always like to set myself little questions from what I gather from the blurb and look forward to finding out the questions while I'm reading along. The questions I gave myself for Following Evan were: What made Laura one day decide that she has finished grieving? Who is this mysterious stranger in New York? What does a woman in a dress from a painting have to do with this book? I'm eager to find out, are you?
I love finding bargains on flowers and plants. For this weeks My Sunday Photo is this gorgeous bunch of gerberas, foliage and chrysanthemums which were a bargain at a only a few pence at my local supermarket.
One of my favourite things in the whole wide world is chocolate. Hands up who loves chocolate? I bet that its most of you! It's hard to resist that moment of yummy scrumtiousness that's in your mouth as the chocolate melts.
We as a nation are huge chocolate lovers. The average Britain consumed approximately 11kg of chocolate last year. That's a rather large amount, but I suppose it's about 3 bars a week if you break it down. I know I can easily eat 3 a week!
So when Choc Affairasked me if I wanted to try some of their chocolate, yep me! chocoholic Rachel! I really could not turn them down. I love all types of chocolate, milk white and dark. I love all things with chocolate in, like chocolate cheese spread and my one of my favs chocolate orange cheese which we had at work a couple of years back. That one was a bit weird but delightful none the less.
I have just come across this fantastic website calledPolyvorewhere you can plan out outfits and pop them together like I have done below. It will also give you the links to the items on the other websites where you can buy them. I love how I can design an outfit on Polyvore and then send it to my blog as a post for all my readers to see! It's great! There is also a free app for Polyvore you can get for your smart phone. Design your outfit on the go!
When I first discovered my love for Science I had just moved to secondary school. I don't honestly remember doing any science at primary school. It was a shame because it became my favourite subject. All the way through secondary school and on to A Levels where I studied Biology, Chemistry and Physics.
Back when I was small there wasn't opportunities to send children to science classes. Now I have found you can send your children to the Little House of Scienceand their Classes for Curious minds.
Children are natural born scientists and it is never too early to start educating them about science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). Both girls and boys are curious to learn about the world around them and how things work.
We see this from the moment children start to talk. They observe and ask questions. My 5 month old baby girl is already interested in everything around her. It's funny to see her frown and stare at her toys taking it all in.
Children love to ask questions such as why is the sun so bright? How did the stars get into the sky? How do planes fly and cars drive? How are bridges built? How does the fabulous brain work? The questions are endless.
