The Primal Kitchen Bars.

When I was eating strictly Paleo last year these bars where an absolute lifesaver when I was feeling like a quick snack. They are made from nuts, unsweetened fruit and almond oil… that’s it! Nowadays I mostly make my own raw snacks but these are fantastic to have in the cupboard or my bag for when hunger strikes and the kids love them too!! They available to buy from Ocado, Suerdrug, Tesco and leading health stores for £1.49 each or you can purchase them at The Primal Pantry.

Bioskin Junior

The lovely people at the Big Green Smile sent me these Bioskin Junior products last week, I have heard such good things about them and really wanted to give the a try on little Bugs skin as he gets terrible eczema. I’ll be trying them out for the next month and will let you know our verdict. His skin is already feeling super smooth and silky after using the Daily Nourishing Spray for a couple of days… I’ll let you know how we get on but so far so good!

Enhance

If you are anything like me and get bored with just plain old water then you might want to try Enhance for water!  The range includes four delicious real fruit flavours – Orange and Passion Fruit, Lemon and Lime, Strawberry and Kiwi, Apple and Blackcurrant and they come in adorable little bottles that you can keep in your bag or even your pocket! They have really helped me to get my daily fluid intake increased!

They are made from real fruit juice, with no artificial colours or flavours or added sugar, it’s a great way to keep hydrated without compromising on taste. One short squeeze results in a subtle hint of fruit, or for a burst of flavour, simply add a bit more! They are just 1 calorie per drink too!

The enhance range is available from ASDA, Ocado and from www.enhancedrinks.co.uk and will be on special offer at £2 in selected ASDA stores until 12th February 2015.

Hatley Pyjamas

This year I bought the kids Christmas PJ’s from Juicy Tots, they are Hatley which I have bought before and they are amazing quality and super cute! I haven’t shopped with Juicy Tots before but I will most definitely do again as the service was fantastic!

What I’ve been reading… 

At the start of the year I promised myself I would read more this year, so I took up the challenge to read a book a week. I have managed to do that so far, intact I’ve read at least 2 a week so far!

  • Gone Girl – Gillian Flynn
  • Let’s pretend this never happened – Jenny Lawson
  • The wedding girl – Madeleine Wickham
  • The unpredictable consequences of love – Jill Mansell
  • Twilight – Stephanie Meyer
  • New Moon – Stephanie Meyer
  • Eclipse – Stephanie Meyer
  • Breaking Dawn – Stephanie Meyer

So yes I’ve read quite a few book so far and I am loving reading again. I loved all the books so far, I couldn’t put the Twilight series down and Let’s pretend this never happened is so so funny!

What we’ve been watching…

The kids have been loving The Adventures of Puss in Boots which is now available on Netflix. It really is good fun, Bugs has watched it over and over, there are five 22 minute episodes to watch so far…

THE ADVENTURES OF PUSS IN BOOTS finds the world’s most famous feline fortune-hunter in the hidden city of San Lorenzo, a mythical land that is invisible to the outside world thanks to a magical spell that protects its quirky inhabitants – not to mention its wondrous treasure. When Puss in Boots accidentally breaks the spell, he must do more than fight off an endless legion of invaders and marauders … he must become a legend.

With a sweeping, epic visual flair and extraordinary quests in each episode, THE ADVENTURES OF PUSS IN BOOTS combines adventure and comedy with the quick-witted, nimble-footed style that is as synonymous with its hero as his namesake boots.

Because of my addiction to the Twilight books I had to see the films to so I have sat and watch all 5 Twilight films this month too! So many people told me the films weren’t as good as the books and I guess they are right as they lack so much detail but I find when I watch a film after reading a book that I fill in everything that it is missing and it brings the book to life for me so I thoroughly enjoyed the films!

That’s it I haven’t had time to watch anything else as I have constantly had a book in my hand when I’m not cleaning, working or playing with the kids lol 😉


Well that’s all for this January, don’t forget to contact me soon if you have a product that you would like to see in February’s edition!

    Love the pjs. Will have to look them out for N.

    I’m back reading this year after a shocker last year. My aim is 50 books for the year, but at the moment I’m well ahead, but also crocheting which I also do morning and night, so not sure how much my reading will be impacted by that.

    2 book a week?! I’m lucky if I get to read two a year at the moment! You have been busy. Loving those PJs 🙂

    Lovely post 🙂 I’m trying to read more at the moment aswell, I’m on my 3rd book of the year so far which I think is pretty good going considering I have a toddler who takes up so much of my time!
