Here are some products that we have loved this month…
These Playmobil eggs are a fantastic alternative Easter Egg which the kids will love! They come in four colours blue (boy with tractor), red (pirate with row-boat), pink (princess with vanity station) and yellow (fun at the beach). You can purchase them on the Playmobil website for £6.99 each.
We were sent a fab parcel from the lovely people at BEAR last month which contained their Alphabites cereals to try! Alphabites are a delicious healthy breakfast cereal with no refined sugar, salt, or any other nonsense. Grrr. Instead of refined sugars, we use coconut blossom nectar which contains twice the calcium of milk, and has a naturally low GI. The kids absolutely love this cereal and love the fact that each box contained 4 monster magnets too. BEAR sent me my very own magnets which are now proudly displayed on my fridge…
The kids are now on a mission to collect their names, it’s a good job they love Alphabites as it might take us a while; I can see they will be pinching some of my letters before long 😉
We also had great fun with the amazing craft package that they sent us to create our very own monster letters! They kids loved doing this and we had a wonderful afternoon together crafting! So a very big thank you for that BEAR! 🙂 You can enter the monster design competition too over on the website.
World Book Day Fancy Dress
Bugs was sent this brilliant Harry Potter outfit from the lovely people at Sainsbury’s especially for World Book Day. The outfit includes a cloak with pointy hood, a tie, a wand which makes a noise and lights up when it is waved, glasses and a book cover. It costs £15 and is just perfect for World Book Day!
How fab is it that you can just nip to your local Sainsbury’s and pick up such brilliant fancy dress like this. Sainsbury’s have lots of other outfits for World Book Day including the Gruffalo, Red Riding Hood and Goldilocks just check out your local store.
What I’ve been reading…
I haven’t managed to read as much as last month but I’ve still managed three books this month. The first book I read was Shopaholic to the Stars by Sophie Kinsella, I love all the Shopaholic series but this one was terrible to be honest, there was no point to the story and absolutely nothing happened and then it ended and I was like WTF? I then read The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society which was my latest book club book and I loved it. It’s a book of letters sent between friends and new friends/lovers and it is just such a heart warming story and I’d highly recommend it! Lastly I read The Hundred-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out of the Window and Disappeared which I really enjoyed too! I’ve started reading the Harry Potter books now so I’ll be busy on them for the next month or so 😉
What I’ve been watching…
After my Twilight addiction ended last month I’ve started watching Charmed on Netflix this month, I remember watching it when my oldest was little and it has been great revisiting it! There are 8 series though so it might take me a little while to get through it!
I read Gone Girl the book in January and loved it. The film was very poor in my opinion. My other half hasn’t read the book and he hated the film. It is really slow going and misses so much detail from the book. 2 and a half hours of my life I’ll never get back!
We loved all the Bourne films mainly because I just love Matt Damon so thought we’d give the Bourne Legacy a go seeing as it was on TV last week! We really enjoyed it! Jeremy Renner is fantastic! I was glued to the screen the whole time and then it just went off and I was left needing more!! Definitely worth a watch but it ends rather abruptly without answering many questions.
Well that’s all for this February, don’t forget to contact me soon if you have a product that you would like to see in March’s edition!
