Remember old favourites from your childhood - Lovehearts, Drumsticks, Double Lollies and Refreshers? Well Swizzels Matlow have given them a new lease of life in a fun squashy form! They taste exactly like the originals but are even easier to eat (Hmm, is that a good thing? Yummy AND easy to eat? My waistline doesn't think so!!!).
The event was fab! An 80's themes Tea-Party with lots of old and new sweets to try and games and face painting for the kiddos and a great chance for me to meet some fellow parent bloggers for the first time! Got some great advice and tips and met some lovely people!
Grace had a whale of a time and made some lovely little friends - here she is with the super cute Roo of Boo, Roo and Tigger too!
My favourite sweets were always Lovehearts - a timeless, simple gesture of love for all ages, as well as being just delicious! Speaking to Sarah Louise Meslop, Marketing Manager at Swizzels Matlow, I found out that the factory they are made is dubbed 'The most romantic work place' with 1 in 4 staff members being romantically involved and they will be appearing on various popular TV shows on and around Valentines Day! I found this absolutely fascinating - maybe they do contain some kind of magic love potion after all!! After spotting this pack, I think they are set to become a firm favourite of Graces too!
A great day was had by all!

I was a bit put out that some of the 'vintage' toys were ones I had myself as I didn't think I was quite vintage yet but Grace loved seeing what toys I had when I was a kid and it was great to reminisce!
