Christmas Kingdom Review and Giveaway

I have to admit I have dreams of having the beautifully decorated Christmas house.  You know the ones that are straight out of a magazine.  With the picture perfect tree, the perfectly placed decorations and maybe something extra cute like a train set.

Then I snap back into reality and wake up to myself because for the next few years my decorating dream is exactly that, a dream!!

Three small children and pets are not a good combo when it comes to having anything nice let alone a perfectly decorated house!!

One day though the tree in the video will be mine!!

For now I am happy to let the kids "decorate" the tree.  The last couple of years they have done it all on their own.  They have done an outstanding job.  I think the end result represents us to a tee.  I love how they managed to put all our decorations on one quarter of the tree and then they got bored so just chucked the tinsel on top!!

 This was the tree on Christmas eve last year.  It could not look any sadder if it tried!!  It had done well to survive  as long as it did!!

It would appear I need some new pretties for my tree so I am so glad that the good people at Christmas Kingdom have offered to help me out by generously giving me a $50 voucher to spend at their on line store.

I have been like a kid in a candy shop trawling through looking at all the cute things they sell!!  I have however narrowed my list down to a few things!!  It hasn't been easy let me tell you!!  They have a great range of all things Christmas.

I am loving thiese tutorial clips, they are inspiring me tp be a little more creative this year.  I am definitely going to be giving this kids wreath a go, such a simple idea!! There are a few more similar clips here on the YouTube channel.

The Christmas Kingdom website has totally won me over!!  It is simple and easy to browse through and anytime I do not have to leave my house to buy things is always a bonus!!  I think the range of products is fantastic, just not enough penguins though!!

They do have a couple of stores in Victoria that you can visit (probably a good thing I do not live anywhere near them!!), the store details are on the website.

Now for the awesome part- one of you lucky readers can win yourselves your very own $50 voucher to spend on some goodies from the Christmas Kingdom on line shop.

Simply leave a comment here or over on the pinned post on my facebook page telling me what you would buy if the $50 was all yours!!  Tell me a story, make me laugh, choose the most expensive thing.  The more creative answer the better!!  

Entries open 1200am 10/10/15 and close 1200am 24/10/15.  The competition will be judged by a secret judge and the winner announced 25/10/15.  Australian residents only.

I had a lot of fun with this review, thanks Christmas Kingdom!!  Now to sit back and wait until my goodies turn up in the post!!  I will be sure to share with you all what I ended up choosing!!


  1. Looks like we'll have to go to the site to see the pictures.

  2. We have a random LED tree that is made of some kind of weird wrapped up plastic that you then plug in and lights up! I am at a loss as to how to describe it but it has saved me as I haven't had to really decorate anything and hid it in the playpen to stop little hands grabbing at it! Haha. This year I might attempt a traditional tree but no doubt it will look like yours with a 2 and 4 year old decorating it :) #TeamIBOT

  3. My hubby is now planning his third year of lights (literally, planning it right now as I type) and, while each year we seem to magically acquire more and more lights, the Holy Grail for him is a set of reindeer. As soon as it's October he starts randomly talking about how bad he needs reindeer - in the middle of serious conversations, as I fall asleep, as he walks past the kitchen. I can only imagine how his brain is working at this time of the year but I think it goes along the lines of "I need reindeer, reindeer, reindeer - Becky's looking at me, she must have said something.... oh, reindeer." It's a fun time. Thankfully, he makes it worth it with his beautiful light display!

  4. With the fab sale price, that voucher would cover the whole cost of the porcelain village - what a steal at $49!!! So cute and it lights up too!!!

  5. I would go for some classy lights. We really need some new ones on our tree!
