*WIN* Epic Escapes Review: An escape room at home

I’ve done a few escape rooms in my time, including an amazing family friendly escape room for Christmas celebrations at Resorts World (which the kids and I loved!)  But I’d never considered an escape room at home.  Truthfully, I didn’t know they existed until I heard about Epic Escapes.

Alternative Gift Ideas for Kids this Easter

I LOVE Easter!  And whilst we love chocolate in our house, I think its lovely to consider alternative Easter gift options for children.  That doesn’t mean to say we haven’t brought the kids chocolate eggs.  We have (but not a huge load!) and we know that the fridge gets full of chocolate.

Coverless Duvet from The Fine Bedding Company *Review*

Hi and welcome to The Willow Tree. I’m Michelle, also known as Shel and I am a mama to three beautiful crazy kids – I have two handsome boys and a wild and wonderful girl.

I really wanted a concrete place to share my love for travel, in particular Disney and offer my readers a chance to gain some knowledge around what we love to do as a family of 5.
