Lilala Kids Pyjamas

Kids wear their pyjamas probably more than any other clothing – say for 10 hours a day, so it kinda makes sense that we buy good quality pj’s that are soft, luxurious and gentle on their skin. Kiki has been testing out a pair of these gorgeous PJ’s from Lilala Kids. She picked out these Princess and the Frog print PJ’s, and when they came she must have sat stroking them for ten minutes! They are incredibly soft! They are made from Peruvian Pima cotton which is amazingly soft and luxurious feeling on the skin. She’s worn them every night since they arrived and confirmed that they are the best pyjama’s she’s ever worn! I have to admit – I’m a little jealous and I wish they came in Mama size! They are a little more pricey than standard PJ’s {this pair are £43.23} but the quality is worth the price, and as they spend so many hours wearing them, it’s actually pretty good value for money! Kiki was very happy to do a little modelling – but don’t tell Papa we did some jumping on the bed ;) If you want to buy a pair for your kiddo, you…

Wall Art – Atrium canvas review

I love displaying our photos in the house – I have a collage I made in the dining room, full of pictures of the girls over the last few years and it’s great to stand and look at and be reminded of all those memories. When Atrium Collage Canvas asked if I’d like to review one of their canvas’s I knew it just what I wanted. I’m a little of an Instagram addict, and knew that I wanted to make a collage with some of my favourite IG photos on it. You can import you IG photos straight into their canvas builder, also you have the option of uploading photos of your computer or importing from Facebook. I picked a 24″ square canvas, that took 27 individual photos. The only hard part of designing a canvas on their site was choosing the photos I wanted to include! Once created, my canvas arrived within just a few days time, and I was really impressed with the quality. Papa hung it up on the stairs – I love glimpsing some of our favourite family photos every time I walk downstairs.

Make your own lipbalm

It’s actually surprisingly easy to make your own lipbalm. It makes for a great gift or stocking filler – you’ll get kudos points for the handmade gift! You can customise it to suit the person who you’re giving it to, and they’ll think you super clever for making your own. This is my favourite recipe to make your own lipbalm. It keeps your lips soft and lovely, especially helpful at this time of year. One of the best things about making your own products, is that you can choose your own, pure ingredients. Y O U      N E E D 2 tbs. olive oil 1/2 tsp. honey 3/4 tsp. beeswax 1/2 tsp. cocoa butter Essential oil of your choice 1 vitamin E capsule In a bowl over a saucepan, heat the oil, honey, beeswax and cocoa butter over a low heat until they are just melted. Remove from heat and allow to cool for 2-3 minutes. Stir in the essential oil and contents of vitamin E capsule. In these I used sweet orange essential oil, as I love the uplifting scent, it reminds me of summer – which when we’re in the depths of winter can be quite…

Kids Craft Essentials

I’m always grateful that my three girlies love crafting as much as I do. There is something so fun about putting out a table full of random odds and ends and letting them create away and see their imagination flowing. Especially through the winter months, we spend a lot of our time crafting. We have a cupboard full of art and craft stuff, ready for anyone’s ideas and requests! Rainy days can be saved by some crafty fun, we have lots of crafts planned in the run up to Christmas and I’m keeping some fun ideas up my sleeve to entertain the girls once this baby arrives. As I mentioned, we have a cupboard full of supplies, our favourite place to re-stock is The Works. They have a fantastic range of crafts for kids at really reasonable prices. They have pretty much everything we need – from basics such as paint, crayons and craft papers to some fantastic little craft kits. We’ve picked up some plain wooden trinket boxes before, which, once kiddo decorated, make for fantastic gifts for family. They always have some great, seasonal craft kits in too – it’s worth stocking up so you can pull a…

Sterimar Giveaway

I don’t think you fully appreciate the misery a cold can cause until you have children. Then you realise that a blocked nose means sleepless nights for them AND for you. Babies with a cold are even less fun – a blocked up, stuffy nose means they can’t feed either. As soon as the cold weather hit, we seemed to start on the endless round of colds and blocked noses. Thankfully, we’ve been testing out some of the Sterimar range which has really helped. Stérimar Kids Congestion Relief is a 100% natural, purified sea water based nasal spray designed to help provide relief from congestion and runny noses in children. Basically, you squirt the salt water up your nose, and it helps to clear out the mucus and wash away those nasty cold-causing germs. The bottles are fab, as they work no matter the angle – making it easy to use on children. The girls were a little unsure at the whole idea at first, but they all said it wasn’t as horrible as they expected AND they could see that it helped them breathe a little easier. We also have some of the baby version ready and waiting for…
