I just LOVE Yankee Candle so I was over the moon to receive this brand new, one of three UK exclusives ‘Early Sunrise‘ – the other two are  Napa Valley Sun & Tahitian Tiaré Flower.  Early Sunrise smells absolutely gorgeous and is described as ‘A new day dawns crisp and fresh in this clean lemony citrus scent with hints of ginger and tea.’  It has to be one of my favourites now, I really don’t like overpowering scents, this is so subtle and I just love it! This is a large jar candle priced at £19.99. The candle provides 110 to 150 hours of true fragrance enjoyment.

The lovely people at Big Green Smile sent us these products to try out. From make-up and beauty products to natural cleaners and baby food, Big Green Smile are one of the biggest online retailers of natural and organic products in the UK. We have to be very careful what products we use on our skin as we all have very sensitive skin and also little Bugs has bad eczema so it’s great to get to try out new products. I have heard great things about Jason products so was very pleased to get to use the sun cream. It is a lovely consistency and absorbs into the skin easily, it hasn’t caused any problems with our skin in fact it is just so lovely and makes skin soft – I will always use this suncream now!

The Attitude 3 in 1 is very lightly scented with pomegranate, it pumps as a foam and lathers up really well, I was tempted to use more than I needed at first but you really don’t need to use much at all. This is another hit and is the new bath time favourite! We love products that we can use for everything! This is perfect for chucking in the swimming bag, why take three bottles when you can take just one?!

As lucky Playmobil Playologists we were sent the brand new Playmobil Annual to have a look at! It’s full of fun pages, stories, puzzles and colouring in! Bugs loves this book because it is full of Castles, dragons and knights but the puzzles are a bit too much for him so Boo likes to go though and do all those! If you have a Playmobil fan  who loves Castles, Knights and Dragons and is aged 5+ then this will make a brilliant Christmas gift.

Boo was lucky enough to be sent a preview of Legends of Oz, Dorothy’s return to watch and she absolutely loved it! It will be out on Blu-ray, DVD and on demand from 22nd September this year. Dorthy returns to Oz to save her old friends the Scarecrow,  the Tin Man, the Cowardly Lion, Glinda the Good Witch and the entire Land of Oz from the devious brother of the Wicked Witch of the West – The Jester.

With Dorothy as their only hope to restore happiness to the Emerald City, she embarks on another journey along the yellow brick road, meeting a host of new friends including Wiser the Owl, Marshal Mallow and Tugg the Treeboat along the way.

The lovely people at Sainsbury’s sent Bugs this awesome lunchbox to take on his first day at school! We love that it has a separate bottle compartment and Bugs absolutely loves the pirate design! These are just £7.00 in Sainsbury’s which we think is an absolute bargain! I had seen these in Sainsbury’s a couple of weeks ago and almost bought one, there is also a girlie tea party design which I almost bought for Boo too but I thought I’d wait and I’m pleased I did now as we were sent this one 🙂

Well that’s it for this month, don’t forget to contact me soon if you have a product that you would like to see in September’s edition 🙂

    Love the idea of the suntan lotion, we also have very sensitive skin in our house – normal suntan lotion seems to aggravate tots excema.
