In August We Love…..

Lil Sis L.O.L Dolls


The girls were over the moon to receive once of these to open. We did a Instagram live and I totally forgot you couldn’t download it afterwards *face palm*

They had a great time opening the doll and had even more fun plunging her in iced water to make her pants change colour!



It has 5 layers which includes a secret message sticker. It also comes with a large accessory  and a small accessory. The ball it comes with also turns into a keyring which is rather fun.

There are 45 to collect and cost £5.99


Yoga Babies by Fearne Cotton and Sheena Dempsey


Little Miss was sent a copy of the new books from Fearne Cotton and it is gorgeous. The illustrations by Sheena Dempsey are stunning and the book reads well.

Little Miss made me read it 12 times in a roll and is now obsessed with trying the yoga poses the children do in the book.

Yoga Babies is available from the 7th September.

The Very Hungry Caterpillar Cloudy Apple juice


Cawston Press has joined forces with Penguin Books and The Very Hungry Caterpillar for their new apple juice water. The juice comprises 50% Cawston Press apple juice and 50% water.

The girls loved them as i knew they would and they do love apple juice. They have been great for picnics and day trips and they would be great for lunch boxes if you send juice cartoons in with your children’s lunches.

It doesn’t contain sweeteners and is not made form concentrate.

They are available from Ocado, Waitrose and Tesco and cost £1.89 for a pack of three.

Bellini Popsicles


Grown up ice lollies!! I picked these up in Aldi for £2.99 and they are divine and very alcoholic.

They are also available in Gin & Tonic.

Review: Sistema Slimline Quaddie

The hot weather is on its way (I hope) so it’s time to start planning picnics and days out with kids  / 965especially with half term around the corner. We love a big picnic but we have a tendency to pack far too much food that ends up squashed and flattened by the end of the day. Well I have a solution for that the Sistema Slimline Quaddie.

I love this lunch box it has a large compartment at the bottom for sandwiches, pasta or salad. It then has 3 smaller compartments, one has a drinks bottle in it and the others as great for fruit and other snacks.  If you have one for each family member you can then get them to choose their own lunch and there will be less wastage.

We went on a day trip and filled our one up for BG she had pasta in the bottom, babybel in one small compartment and cumber in the other. We removed the drinks bottle and filled that compartment with grapes and we had the drinks separate. BG loved having her own lunch box.

OH uses it for work and can take quite a bit in it saving us a fortune on lunch for him. BG will be using it when she starts school in September.

We will be investing in a few more so we are prepared for our holidays. We have a long trip this year so we will need plenty of snacks to keep up going.

The Sistema Slimline Quaddie is available in several colours, its freezer, microwave and dishwasher safe.  Prices start from £4.99

Its available online from Amazon and John Lewis and in store in many supermarkets.
