Petit Tresors – Girls French Personalised Jewellery

My dad is a jeweller. I grew up around diamonds, rubies and emeralds. I know about the best cut, clarity – the lot. But the truth is, I wear nothing. It guts my dad. But I am just not into jewellery. Less, is more.

My girls, on the other hand are veritable Pat Butchers’. The more, the merrier – the more garish, the better. Oh they do love a free piece of jewellery tut that adorns magazines like Cute Fluffy Pet Weekly or Teenage Bitch from Hell – or whatever they read these days. Now this guts me. So trashy. Ugh.

So when they were offered a bracelet for their birthday I was worried. Very worried. Until I saw this brand.

Spun Candy is Kids Birthday Party Heaven

So every year, I make a huge thing about my girls’ birthday party. Maybe in a past life, I was a party organiser? And maybe in this current one, just sad. Either way, we have done Rainbow, Disco, Spa, Fashion and many more. We are just not ‘limp-sandwiches-in-church-hall’ people.

So now at 9 years old – what to do? Well, I figured if it involves sugar – not much else matters. So we decided the kids would make lollipops at Spun Candy. Not just tut ones though – I’m talking “I-can’t-believe-a-kid-made-that’ ones, and plenty of them.

Spun Candy is a store and kitchen where expert candy confectioners boil the sugar in front of your eyes adding only natural flavourings and colourings to bring the candy to life and create beautiful sweets and lollipops. Look…

Cinderella-ella-ella

Cinderella is how I feel in my house sometimes. We replace the wicked step-mother with the busy husband, and the ugly sisters with my naughty twins and BOOM – I’m Cinders. Everyone’s go-to slave. But I digress…

CINDERELLA

Unless you have been living under some stone – you will know that Disney have been very busy creating a brand new live-action feature inspired by the classic fairytale, “Cinderella” starring Cate Blanchett as the evil step mother. Here she is at the Premiere. Clearly in nice actress mode.

The film is released on 27th March in the UK and as if the film itself is not enough of a draw – Frozen Fever – the new short created as a follow-up to Frozen, will be shown before. To warm the audience up, so to speak. This is one kids cinema visit I am beyond excited for!!!! And there’s more!
