Adorable new Bing toys by Fisher Price - At The Entertainer

We were thrilled to be asked to review some toys from The Entertainer; as a toy shop I've frequented, even before Ethan was born, this was an ideal opportunity. We were asked to try out some of the new Bing toys which have been released to support the books and the subsequent TV series. 

These might, otherwise, have seemed a bit young for Ethan but he's grown up with the Bing books and loved the tv show so I thought he'd still really enjoy playing with them. As well as that Skye absolutely loves rabbits so I thought she'd like to play with them too.

Summer ready skin with 7th Heaven (Formerly Montagne Jeunesse) 'Pineapple Peel-Off' face masks

I have to say I had no idea that Montagne Jeunesse had re-named to become '7th Heaven', it feels a little odd considering they've been the main sachet masks that I've known about for many many years, but the new name is nice and there's no doubting that it's the same company when you look at the packaging and branding; you won't suddenly not notice them in the stores!

Birchbox UK - Unboxing / Review - July 2015 'Make a Splash'

It's beauty box time, already, rather impressed that Birchbox is back in to sending out in the first week of the month rather than the second and third as many of us had become accustomed to! 

I had known that we were getting bags, this month, with our Birchbox, but in the past that's been a bag in a box so I was rather confused when I got a padded envelope delivered by Yodel and I wasn't expecting anything that size... Until I opened it and was greeted with a beautiful turquoise/mint green bag filled with products. 

This has been my favourite Birchbox, or should I say Birchbag, for ages so I am really, really pleased with it, if you like it and decide to sign up then please consider using my referral code which will get both yourself and myself £5 to spend in the Birchbox shop:

Some unplanned radio silence!

Just a quick note to explain why, after getting loads of posts out and getting up-to-date with everything, I've all but disappeared! 

My goodness, we've had a rubbish couple of weeks. The temperature and having had to do a couple of extra legs of the school run mean that I've been absolutely exhausted and really, really run down - This year hasn't been ideal for my health but this past few weeks have been the cherry on the cake for nasty, ick. 

Even more recently Ethan has been struck down with the sickness bug that's been going around, he's been sick for days in a row but then will be fine for 24 hours in between, and then sick again. There's been much resting, lots of washing machine usage and very little laptop usage! 

I do plan on getting some outstanding posts done, but if I'm quiet then please give me the benefit of doubt, I've not given up on my lovely blog, just having a rather tough time at the moment! Hope you're all loving the weather (though maybe not today, today is grey).
