Win a personalised Christmas eve box from prezzybox

It’s late afternoon on Christmas eve and the magic is building. Children run around the house, struggling to contain their excitement. Suddenly, one of them notices something. A wooden box, tucked under the Christmas tree among beautifully decorated gifts. Prolonging the magic with a Christmas eve box I don’t know about you, but I’ve always found Christmas to be a little bit of an anticlimax. The run-up to it is so exciting. Christmas days out, visits to friends and family and presents gathering under the tree. And then the day itself arrives and there’s a frenzy of wrapping paper, too…

Win an eco friendly bath time hamper from Jack and Jill Kids

I’ve always struggled to find palm oil free bath products. The majority of brands use palm oil derivatives to make their products bubbly. But a few months ago, we reviewed Jack and Jill tooth care range for children. Since then, they’ve expanded to include bath products as well. We’ve been reviewing their new bath time range and you can win a hamper of them so you can try them yourself. Simplicity shampoo and body wash The simplicity range is perfect for sensitive skin.

Win an NFco tooth care Hamper

A few months ago, I reviewed some fabulous natural tooth care products from Jack and Jill Kids. At the time, I was a bit disappointed that they didn’t make something similar for adults. It is so difficult to find palm oil free toothpaste and toothbrushes are notoriously bad for the environment. That’s why I was delighted to hear that Jack and Jill have branched out to make The Natural Family Company – eco friendly tooth care for the whole family. Introducing NFco The Natural Family Company – NFco for short – was developed in response to numerous public requests for a…

Cheerz photo canvas review and giveaway

A few months ago, I reviewed a Cheerz Memory Box. I fell totally in love with both the product and the idea of printing my photos. So when we visited beautiful Lindisfarne a few weeks ago, I knew just how to preserve the memories of a great holiday. Printing a photo canvas Cheerz sell a range of photo products. They make it easy to print off your best pictures. They are also realistic. After all, our best photos aren’t always taken on a fantastic camera. So Cheerz is available as an app on both Android and iOS. I have to admit,…

A Fathers Day gift for a grumpy old git

Last year, Prezzybox treated my dad to some gorgeous Father’s Day gifts. Fast forward to a few weeks ago, and dad had a strange request. He was so impressed with his shoe shine kit that he wanted another one. Or more specifically, he wanted another shoe-shining sponge. Cue an email to the very understanding marketing assistant at Prezzybox. Much to her amusement, I asked how to get hold of another shoe shine sponge. Because dad didn’t want another shoe shine kit because he loved the one he already had. He just wanted a sponge on its own. Eventually I managed to track one…

Easy baking with Craft and Crumb review and giveaway

I have written many times about the struggle I have with productivity. Working from home is so intensive that I struggle to find the time to take on additional tasks. Sadly one such task is organising birthdays. Don’t get me wrong, I want my girls to have the best birthdays possible. But they are SO demanding! When it’s my husband’s birthday, he’s happy with a chocolate cake. And I love making chocolate cake. We put some sweets on it so the girls are happy, everyone’s a winner. But when it is one of the girls’ birthdays, they want some incredible creation…
