Canvas Champ Review & Giveaway

I have always loved taking photos, I’m not very good at them but they turn out ok normally. I have a camera and a smart phone and most of the time I just upload them online to Facebook or Instagram and we never print them out. 

We have been married nearly 12 months already and not one of our professional photos by our photographer Peter Blancflower have been printed out yet.  We were determined to get our butts into gear and sort through all the photos and get some either framed or put on canvas for the house.   

But this is where canvas champ come into it and asked if  I wanted to review a canvas I immediately said yes, and left the husband to select a picture of our wedding he liked.   

We were sent a 12″ x 8″ canvas of our chosen photo, which isn’t huge, but fit in a nice free space we had on the living room wall. The quality of the print is spot on – no blurring or distortion whatsoever. 

The back of the canvas already comes with a hook attached to the frame so that it is really quick and simple to hang straight up. 

Prices start at £3.99 for an 8″x8″ canvas, but if you fancy your chances of winning a 10″x 8″ photo canvas for yourself, enter the giveaway below!

Naturelly Jelly Juice | Review & Giveaway

We love jelly, So when I was asked by Naturelly Jelly Juice if we would like to try their jelly juice pouches out, of course we jumped at the chance. We love trying new foods, and as these pouches are aimed at age 1+ it’s another new thing to try. Naturelly Jelly is actually supposed to be brilliant for school age children too – let’s face it any child of any age, would happily snack on jelly.

Naturelly have launched their jelly juice pouches across many Boots stores, so they’re really easy for anyone to get hold of and try.

They’re so excited about this they’re giving me 36 pouches to giveaway. What an amazing prize! So first off, enter at the bottom via rafflecopter to be in with a chance.

So, let me tell you a bit more about Naturelly.

It’s a jelly pouch that comes in 3 flavours:

Summer Fruits, Tropical Fruits and Apple & Blackcurrant

What is Jelly juice?

  1. It’s a great snack for children
  2. Made from 70% fruit juice
  3. It is free from wheat, dairy, nuts and other allergens
  4. Only has 36kcal per pouch
  5. There’s no artificial colours, flavours or preservatives & no added sugar or sweeteners
  6. Approved by the vegetarian society

It’s made from:70% fruit juice, 30% water and a natural thickener/gelling agent called Gellan Gum, which is a natural dietary fibre and thickener which is gelatine free, to give it the texture and appearance of jelly.

That’s quite a few reasons to like these pouches, isn’t it? Well to add to that, the taste test reveals they’re lovely! We also really like them fresh from the fridge. Yes, I’ve tried them too!

Pandemonio | Review And Giveaway

Back in November last year we worked with Drummond Park to review a game call Stoopido. We loved it that much they have sent us another game called Pandemonio, So here is another review and giveaway for your chance to WIN!

The riotous new PANDEMONIO from Drumond Park is a brilliant, quick-fire card trading game for up to 8 people – where everyone plays at once, all the time! Yes – it’s sheer pandemonium… loud, raucous – and, of course, extremely funny. And with two levels of game play it’s perfect for all age and skill groups!

How to play

Each turn, players must collect as many cards as possible, all with the same image that their playing piece is sitting on. Everyone starts with eight cards, and Colin is wound up and set off along his track.

This is the point where everyone gets swapping madly (with cards FACE DOWN – so you don’t know what you’re getting!) for an equal number of an opponent’s cards. As Colin gets to the end of track, the swapping gets ever more frantic, until Colin grinds to a halt! Then everyone moves their playing piece along the board by the number of correct cards collected. If anyone has no matching cards, they just sit tight until the next go.  Each round, the players must get rid of their old cards and collect cards that match the new board square their piece is now sitting on. The first player to get all the way up the board – to land on or pass the Start line – WINS

At first we did struggle a little as to how to play but once we had got the hang of it, it was lots of fun very crazy with lots of shouting.

Would I recommend this game…Yes! It a great game for all the family to get involved in.

The game is prices at £19.99 and is for ages 8 to adult

Bath Time Fun With Good Bubble – Review & Giveaway

As a kid I used to always love baths and I still do now to an extent but can never seem to find time to have one.

My nephew Jack on the other hand still loves his baths at 9 and we struggle to get him out, when I was offered to trial a selection of Good Bubble bath product he was super excited.  We do have to be careful with certain product as Jack has sensitive skin and suffers from ezcema on his arms.

Bubble bath

We received a nice selection which contained Shampoo, conditioner, hair & body wash and bubble bath set including a wash mitt.

Jacked poured the bubble bath in and we didn’t need much to produce lots of lovely smelling bubbles – Can never have too many bubbles….right.

Jack Loved the shampoo & Conditioner,

Champions League Fact File Review & Giveaway

Having a 9 year old nephew who is mad on football, who goes to football training every week, plays in matches and belongs to an under10’s team and has pretty much every football kit home & away, it’s safe to say we have to semi like football.

No matter what weather comes, rain or shine we are usually dragged out into the garden to play football every opportunity possible, plus he has also just had a new bigger football net from my mum & dad (Grandparents) and a new football from my fiance and me for his birthday.

img_81961

When the opportunity arose to review a champions League Factfile from Carlton Books I couldn’t resist and knew how excited my nephew would be to receive this and read it.  It is full with loads of great information for all those football lovers.

img_8194

He liked it that much he even took it into his school for his “Show & Tell” lesson because he wanted to show it off to all his friends in class.  His friends loved it and said it was really interesting and they passed it around his class friends to look at.  Clearly went down a treat.

He loves it that much he also reads it while walking to school.

* If you have a football mad member of your family whether it is your kids, nieces or nephews etc then here’s how you could get your hands on one of your own fact files to WIN.

STOOPIDO GAME – REVIEW & GIVEAWAY

THE GAME OF 1000 SILLY FACES!

This stoopido game is a new wacky and downright silly game where u will laugh for ages watching people change appearances in the short space of time.

img_7453

As from a previous post we love games in our house they bring us together to enjoy quality “Family time” and definitely plenty of laughter.

img_7454 img_7455

The game includes:

4 pairs of glass

4 sets of various eyes, hair, noses

1 x splutter splog

1 x dice

Before you start you will need to carefully press out all the pieces out of the cardboard and attached the specific clips to the nose and ear pieces so that they will fix to the glasses later.  The youngest player starts and then moves usually clockwise but you can choose whichever way you want.

The aim of the game is the opposite to what you think as it’s the last player to NOT have a full face covered with quirky colourful mismatched features.

It is great fun for all the family and I can certainly tell you we had lots of fun playing with it.

WIN A PAIR OF TICKETS to the NEC Festive gift fair

Christmas is one of my favourite times of year – minus the cold weather.  I try to persuade my OH Tom to let me put the tree and decorations up as early as possible in the run up to the big day – I always win that one.

Last year I headed over to the festive gift fair at the NEC birmingham with my mum for a mother and daughter day after I won tickets, and to see what goodies I could get my hands on to decorate our house for our first proper christmas in our new home.  It looked great fun and would most certainly put you in the mood for christmas.

We arrived just after it opened and went straight in with no waiting around, at first glance it was packed, and it was beautifully decorated with lots of christmas decorations and toys, I felt like a little kid in a toy shop.

I found and brought some tree decorations and a extendable snowman, which I though were super cute.
