Cereal Killers: Lucky Charms Vs. Golden Grahams

Cereal Killers; Lucky Charms; Golden Grahams

A few months ago we had our first round of Cereal Killers with Peanut Butter Toast Crunch Vs. Cookie Crisp. This time I decided to have a solo cereal party (so basically a weekday breakfast) to try a couple of American cereals – Lucky Charms and Golden Grahams. Did the redheaded leprechaun and his pot of charms sparkle or did the ribbed squares live up to their Golden name? Read all about the battle of the bowl-ge below.

DIY: Succulent Terrarium

Having moved out I’ve realised that my thumb is nowhere near as green as it could be. I either overwater or don’t water enough when it comes to flowers, shrubs and other plants. So it’s handy that cacti and succulents are everywhere at the moment. Surely, I can’t kill such hardy plants as these? I guess we shall see. Below are the steps I used to create my terrarium. I’m sure there are plenty of other ways to make them, but this is how I did mine.

Christmas Ads of 2015: The 10 Best Ads

Christmas ads 2015

I normally can’t stand ads. I mute the tv whenever commercials come on. However, there is one time of the year where I will happily watch ads. Christmas. Christmas ads are in a class of their own.

Even though I have no idea what half of the stores sell, they are still entertaining to watch. Here are some of the best (and sappiest) Christmas ads released in 2015:

10 Tips for Staying at Disney’s Aulani Resort, Hawaii

In May this year I was lucky enough to stay at the fabulous Aulani Disney Resort in Hawaii. Being a Disneyphile, I was super psyched to find out that there was a Disney resort on Oahu and I knew I had to stay there. I planned a split stay, spending half my time in Waikiki to be close to the tourist attractions, shopping, restaurants etc, and then the other half of my trip was spent soaking up the sun and enjoying Hawaii – Disney style.

Although Aulani is a Disney resort it’s not over the top Disney. The resort has tried to stay true to Hawaii’s Polynesian culture and style while still providing that family friendly Disney magic vibe that people love. Here are some of my tips for staying at Disney’s Aulani Resort. I would love it if you share some of your tips in the comments below!

Well, Comic Con season is all but over for another season. We were lucky enough to make it to Oz Comic Con (read our posts here and here), and scoured the internet for news from the big kahuna San Diego Comic Con. SDCC is definitely at the top of our bucket list!

 

So with that in mind, we got to thinking: if we could put together our own dream panel of five celebrities, who would they be?
