Quickie review. (no not like that)

So  I went to an event put on by Jessica Cunningham aka Theprodigalfox on Tuesday in Manchester and had a great time. I met one of the brands and  I said I'd do a review on a product.  Thea wore it to bed last night 06/02/2019 and it is a sleepsuit and zips alllll the way down.  The page is Zippy.up and their site and the site is www.zippyup.com.  It's a little big for Thea still but she looks adorable in it and its tres tres soft. Give them a visit and a follow on social.

To summarise, its really soft, looks really cute and I like it alot and so does wifey.

Cheers

I call fake news on this hapless dad cliche, and here are 5 reasons why it needs to go ahead and die...
There are a lot of men. Studies show maybe even up to 50% of humans may be men these days. It’s true, I did the research. It just doesn’t make sense to assume all men are this bumbling figure that advertising agencies rely on so much.
