So I got the idea of Magical Mystery Day after reading and reviewing Zoe Sugg's book Girl Online.
So the rules are as follows, taken from the following extract of Girl Online...
The boys both picked out a piece of paper each. We decided that we'd research both places online, and decide which place we'd prefer to visit.
The choices were, Tamworth and Worcester.
Bradley got to work researching 'things to do in...' each town. [excuse my laundry in the background, oops!] and together we decided we'd visit Tamworth.
Tamworth is a large market-town on the border of Staffordshire and Warwickshire. It is home to the Indoor Snowdome and family theme park Drayton Manor.
We arrived in Tamworth after a short 50 minute drive.
Bradley decided we should visit an indoor entertainment centre called Namco Funscape. It had a good sized soft play area for up to 8 year olds and an indoor sand pit [apparently the 1st in the UK] so Taylor was very busy. It also had a bit of an amusement centre so Bradley was in his element, winning tickets left, right and centre. We also had a game of bowling.
It got a little stressful at times as Taylor wasn't happy about having to sit in his pushchair during bowling, and he was getting pretty tired as he's very much all about routine.
After all the fun and games at the entertainment centre, we went in search of something yummy for lunch. We used our iPhones to pick up local places for lunch which led us to this Beefeater, called The Ladybridge. The food was lovely and the service was fantastic.
After filling up on food and drink, we parked up and went for a nice walk around the Castle Grounds.
Tamworth Castle boasts a wealth of history, dating back to anglo-saxon times. You can pay to go inside and explore the period rooms, but we decided to enjoy the nice walk around the surroundings.
Within the Castle Grounds is a large play area including a toddler park, a park for older children including a wooden castle and pirate ship, a skate park, tennis courts and more.
We spent a while having fun on the park with the boys before making the short walk back over the bridge back to the car.
We all had a lovely day out. It was nice for the 4 of us to spend the day together, which can be quite rare nowadays, and we were all pretty exhausted when we got home.
It was such a spontaneous trip, I can't wait for this to become a yearly tradition in my home.

I've taken a little break from my blog recently as I've been really busy with work and I've been struggling to find the time to work on my blog.
I've decided to change my blog routine up a little and cut it down to just 1 post a week for the time being, that way I can concentrate on getting good material out and promoting it throughout the week. Let me know your thoughts!
So anyway, a little delayed but here we are with January's Beauty Favourites...
Boots No7 Completely Quenched Moisturising Body Lotion
I'm unsure how much this product is as I can't seem to find a price online and I got it as part of a gift box. I wasn't expecting to like it as much as I do. I read 'lotion' and assume it's a thin, liquid-y substance but I was pleasantly surprised. It's actually pretty thick, for something in a tube and feels silly soft on the skin.
Benefit High Beam Luminescent Complexion Enhancer (£19.50)
This is a fab liquid highlighter and often use it for a spot highlighter on my cheek bones and brow bones and I regularly add a little to my Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation to give the matte-ness more of a dewy glow, it gives it a gorgeous illuminating finish.
Estee Lauder New Dimension Shape & Fill Expert Serum (£20.67)
After trying out a few samples of this, I loved the way it made my skin feel so was really pleased to receive it for Christmas. It promises to make contours look more defined and skin look more radiant and it honestly does work! My contours are definitely looking more prominent particularly my cheek bones! Fab stuff!
MAC Lipstick in Velvet Teddy (£15.50)
I've been wearing Velvet Teddy, a deep-tone beige shade quite a lot this month. As much as I love the colour, I do wish it was a creamier finish, I'm not so much a matte fan, but still a popular lip this month!
