KAYA Personalised & Hand Engraved Jewellery

KAYA jewellery is personalised and hand engraved in London to produce pieces that mean something between family or friends.  There are also lots of pieces for generations to share such as matching mother daughter jewellery such as bracelets and pendants.  Personalised jewellery for mums can hold a special birth month coloured gem of their child or names or initials.  With such a wide variety of items available there really is something special for everyone and they’d make particularly lovely gifts.

I chose the Silver Infinity Mum Bracelet to try out which comes with discs attached to the infinity sign, each engraved with your children’s initials.  Having two children, I have two discs to represent them.  I think this is a really lovely idea and is a piece I can wear everyday.  It came presented in a pretty box along with a cleaning cloth and is a generous size for my wrist.

I really like the bracelet and is something I can wear anytime.  Also every time I look down at it I have a reminder of my children by seeing their initials which I think is a  lovely touch to have on a piece of jewellery.  KAYA offers some really unusual and different pieces of personalised jewellery that you don’t see elsewhere such as the three generation sets and the mum rings are a particular favourite of mine with pretty gemstones in to reflect your children’s birth months.

With such a lot of pretty personalised jewellery available you are sure to find your favourite so I am pleased to be able to offer one lucky winner a £40 voucher to spend on jewellery at KAYA – any piece of their choice!

Songmics Toy Storage and Bookshelves Unit

Songmics have done it again with this fabulous value for money children’s storage unit.  If you are looking for something that doesn’t cost the earth, but looks stylish and holds lots of your child’s books and boxes for toy storage then check out this multipurpose colourful unit.

The unit comes flat packed but I found it very simple to build on my own and did it fairly quickly.  It’s quite light to carry empty and does have supports to attach to the wall should you feel you want to use them.  The colourful toy storage boxes are sturdy and strong and ideal for my 6yr old’s endless little bitty toys that he loves to collect and he can remove a box when he wants and just put it back over the bars when he’s finished.

The book holder is useful and I love the way all the books face you so that the child an select a book by glancing at the front cover easily.  I try and change the books around every few weeks with others so that he constantly gets different ones to look at and choose for bedtime reading. Overall I’m thrilled with this storage idea and it has proved a hit with my boy, he loves seeing all his things and has easy access to them to play with or put back when it’s ‘tidy up’ time.

With this being such a useful, great piece, I’m giving you the chance to win one for yourself – exactly as you see in the picture below.  If you’d like to win then scroll down and fill in the gleam form to get your entries in.

Songmics Interlocking Storage Cube Organiser Giveaway

Songmics are an online household company that sells primarily through Amazon and has some great value, economical storage ideas.  With everything from storage cubes to make up holders, shoe racks to laundry boxes there really is something to suit everyone at fantastic prices.  We’ve been checking out a set of storage cubes which you can read about below and I also have the chance for you to win a set for yourself (choosing from the options below).

 

These are flat pack kits that you build yourself, I did mine myself and found they didn’t take anywhere near as long as I expected although did require a little strength pushing the pieces together.  I did have to get my husband to click a couple of the doors in when he got home as I couldn’t quite push them in fully. The cubes came together nicely and I was pleased with the results.  These are mix and match so you can build them in any configuration you like, they could be in one long line, or built into a cube of nine like I did below.

I chose a black scroll design which looks pretty and modern and is suitable for any room in the house.  We’ve currently built this for my daughters room and she loves the easy to swing open doors and has filled each box with a different item of clothing, one cube for shorts, one for t-shirts, one for pj’s etc.

These are lightweight storage cubes so I wouldn’t use them for heavy items such as books and they are very reasonably priced due to the light nature of the materials.  They are therefore excellent value for money and make a great space to store things in like clothing.

My daughter is really pleased with her new storage cubes, they look good, hold a lot of her belongings and she loves to line her teddy bears across the top!

Win a SENSSE Silicone Facial Cleansing Brush worth £90

SENSSE Silicone Facial Cleansing Brush and Exfoliator is a rechargeable cleansing and anti ageing device that looks rather stunning in its pretty pink shade and soft silicone shell so I was excited to give it a try.  Once charged is will last for up to 180 times based on a one minute usage which is pretty good going.

Inside the box you get the device, USB charging cable and what I have to say must be one of the cutest storage bags that I’ve ever seen come with a device like this.  With its rose pink sequins, copper coloured zip and fluffy pom-pom, it’s the perfect place to keep your SENSSE product clean and dry when not in use.

Now onto the product itself, this has been a revelation in the cleansing brush market for me.  Not only does it look small and sleek, the smooth silicone outer is silky soft and a joy to hold, fitting perfectly into your hand. The main side features a silicone cleansing brush featuring three different types of textures.  Simply add a few drops of your own cleansing lotion and move in circular motions across your face ensuring your skin is dampened beforehand.  When you switch it on it delivers thousands of pulsations per minute to gently remove dirt oil, makeup residue, and dry dead skin leaving your face feeling clean and rejuvenated.

The back of the SENSSE brush can be used to massage the face after moisturising especially around wrinkles and fine lines.

I found the device exceptionally user-friendly, it’s desirable to look at, it works efficiently being fully waterproof up to 1 metre, it’s a joy to hold fitting so easily and comfortably in your hand and above all gives a really good and pleasurable cleanse and massage to the face.

Some key features include:

  • Built-in Timer – The pulsation pauses every 15 seconds to remind you to move onto a new area.
  • Six different intensity levels to suit all skin types.
  • Long Battery Life – Get 180 uses per charge from internal battery that’s easily charged with included USB cable.
  • Auto Shut-Off – The device will switch off after 3 minutes of inactivity to save your battery.
  • Waterproof – You can use in the bath or shower without damaging the device.

I’ve really enjoyed using this product for a number of reasons including its ease to hold, the feel on your face is ultra soft and effective.  It’s so much gentler than other facial brushes yet just as effective.  The whole unit is ultra compact and comes with multiple speeds, more than other brushes I’ve tried and looks great sat out on your bathroom shelf.  It’s pretty, small and leaves your skin feeling clean, fresh and supple.  The massaging tool really does uplift your facial skin pushing the moisturiser deeply in to the pores to really boost healthy, supple and youthful looking skin.

Don’t just take my word for it, why not try one for yourself!

Enjoying musicals with #NewYearNewYou

If ever I get of me time I like to sit down and chill out, either with a favourite tv programme or a good film.  As much as I enjoy a good musical I don’t tend to sit and watch them at home but this year I’m challenging myself to try something different and in this case I’m going to spend the next few weeks watching the following musical DVD’s.  It may mean chucking the husband out – but he works more weekends than not anyway so I intend on getting the kids to bed early and having an evening to myself, or maybe with one or two female friends round to enjoy a proper classical musical film with a feel good factor that we can enjoy and sing along to!

With a great range of musicals to enjoy I can’t wait to sit and watch the following:

  • Jersey Boys
  • Singing in the Rain
  • Rock of Ages
  • Seven Brides for Seven Brothers
  • High Society

All the above DVD’s are available to purchase from Amazon HERE.

I’m going to plan one evening a week were I can have the front room to myself or with friends and totally enjoy one of these dvd’s.  It’ll be nice for a bit of adult time to watch a dvd of my choice (it’s normally kids ones!) and really give myself some of that time back I had before children.  I think just making a little effort each week to enjoy myself and relax will be great and getting into musical mode will surely get me planning a trip to the theatre later this year! Well why not? #NewYearNewYou

Have you got any challenges for the new years?  What do you plan to do differently?

If you love and enjoy musicals then I have an opportunity for you to win all of the above DVD’s.  Just follow me on twitter and RT my pinned tweet below.  You have until midnight on Sunday 22nd January to enter upon which time a winner will be selected at random.  Good luck!

WILF Books Subscription – Review & Win

WILF Books are a monthly subscription service which sends children a box of books (minimum of three) to enjoy, love and encourage their reading skills with.  The box can be tailored to your child’s age and tastes, so if there are any themes they don’t like you can excluded them.  The books can be fiction or non-fiction and are uniquely chosen for each child.

wp_20161124_12_36_42_pro The books come well presented and individually wrapped up with a cute note and sticker.  This all adds to the excitement when the child opens it up and they are eager to see what books are inside.  Also included is a freepost envelope where you can return any books that have been read or any from your child’s own collection that they no longer want.  As long as they are in good condition they will be recycled in other boxes so that more children can get enjoyment from them. The more you do this, the more likely that extra books will be included in your future boxes.

We received three books all well suited to my 8yr old Miss M:

  • Atticus Claw Goes Ashore – Jennifer Gray
  • Darcy Burdock – Laura Dockrill
  • Gilbert the Great – Jane Clarke & Charles Fuge

Miss M was happy with all of her books and soon got down to reading them at bedtime.  They are all books she could enjoy and read at her leisure and she really enjoyed receiving the bundle of books. The idea of a subscription is a great idea for a gift for a child and something they can look forward to each month.
