Weekend in Wales 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿❤

Hi beauties,

Wow!! What a hectic but fun few days!🙂 The plan was to get some posts scheduled, but of course that didn’t happen! So I thought it’s only right to share with you our little weekend away! 🙂

Rylies first & longest car journey to Cardiff to see friends. From where we live it’s a good 5 & a half hour journey. We picked up Rylies brother & sister from school & headed straight to Wales on Friday 28th September. All 3 kids slept quite a lot of the way. Of course we stopped at services about half way as we all needed feeding.

This photo was taken as we were going on to the motorway from York. There was a kite festival on that day.

Once we arrived to Wales it was nearly midnight. We were staying with friends so we had a chat & went to bed. We were all knackered by this point!

Saturday 29th September

We had a chilled morning then went to St Fagans National Museum of History. It was a lovely day so we all enjoyed the walk round.

It’s an open air museum showing historical buildings & lifestyle. It’s crazy to see how much things have changed.

For the rest of the day we just enjoyed being away & seeing our friends as we don’t see them often. The kids played & seemed to really enjoy it until Sunday afternoon came when we had to leave for home.

We really enjoyed our little weekend away! Its nice just to get away for a couple of days sometimes & get a chance of scenery🙂

☆Lets be friends☆

Mr Nutcase: Pimp Your Case!♥

Hi beauties. ☼

I’ve got quite a different post for you today, but I’m sure you’ll love it as there’s something for everyone here, read til the end to find out more 🙂

I’m super excited to be doing this post. Recently I got the chance to work with the company ‘Mr Nutcase’ – I’m sure most of you will have seen their adverts! Basically they are a company that sell phone cases, either from their collection or you can ‘Pimp Your Case’ – design your own!

I have agreed to do a review on my blog about their website/phone cases, & as a reward I get to keep my very own customised phone case as a thank you!

So here’s my review…

What did I think of Mr Nutcase?

Mr Nutcase & the team didn’t disappoint. Their website is easy to use, it’s easy to ‘pimp your case’ & navigate through the other collections.  The service was very fast & I didn’t come across any problems! I received my order within about 3-4 days of purchase, which to me is FAST!
There was also an offer on to get a free screen protector for your phone if you liked their Facebook page!

My custom designed case


This is the case I designed myself, it was super easy to do – you just upload images to the website & place them were desired! There are lots of layouts to choose from, you could have 1 picture or several pictures as shown above! There were other fancy layouts as well which adds to the customisation of the phone case. Which I think is a brilliant idea! 🙂

The ‘Pimp Your Case’ phone cases retail for about £14.95 – it may vary depending on your phone & the type of case you’re wanting though. However, to me this price is very reasonable as the phone cases are of a high quality, it’s a thin plastic but it’s not flimsy (Ultra Light Weight Slimline Case) & it fits on my phone PERFECTLY! The pictures are very high quality & have been printed onto the phone case very clearly & just as I designed! What’s not to love? 🙂

Overall I would give the Mr Nutcase team & their service a 5/5. For a first time buyer they have definitely impressed me & I’m not just saying this because it’s sponsored & I got to keep my case. I’m genuinely very pleased with the service & the quality of the product. I highly recommend!

Thank you all for reading my Mr Nutcase review, this post wouldn’t be complete without a selfie with my custom case, so here you are…
