Room tidying is a very contentious subject, but there is a lot more to encouraging a tidy bedroom than just maintaining a positive environment for your child. Believe it or not, the very act of regular tidying can actually help them in other areas of their life too, including school! It’s all part of building certain processes and routines that are important to their overall development.
Table lights or table lamps make for the ideal finishing touch to any room. A popular addition to a side table, bedside table or console unit, table lamps can be used as a decorative accessory that is not only great to look at but is practical too.
Going to see Lightopia London ‘A Christmas Fantasy’ at Crystal Palace Park was a thrilling and magical experience. As you walk through the vast park, you can really feel the warmth and comfort of a Christmassy and family environment. There are many wonderful light displays including mystical creatures: lions, unicorns, eagles with an addition of sound effects of the animals’ noises, giving you almost a sense of euphoria as you watch them glowing brightly around you.
,The light trail at the WWT London Wetland Centre in Barnes was beyond my expectations. I walked into the Wetlands not knowing what was going to be like. In past years I had been to other light shows so I was unsure what this one would bring to our local community.
ILLUMINATURE didn’t disappoint. The show really surprised me with the interactiveness of the whole experience in the form of buttons to press that switch on lights and lily pads that light up as you jump on them, all to spread the message of saving the Wetlands. I loved every single bit of the lights and even got to enjoy a nice hot chocolate drink as I explored the trail.
