Last year 14 of us went away for a few days the for New Year (including 4 kids) and one of our friends brought Just Dance 2 for the Wii. What an great night we had playing this! It has a great selection of dances and the music is fantastic! Ranging from Elvis Presley to Tina Turner to Rihanna! The object of the game is to follow the dancing on the screen and if you get it correct you get scored on it! It was good that the kids could get involved also as sone of the dances are easy to follow and my three year old was able to do it! After we got home we had to buy it for the kids and Just Dance 2 is now is a regular occurrance in ours on a Saturday night! When the kids are at nursery I often use it throughout the week and follow 3 or 4 dances as I don't get much time for exercise so it's like a mini workout! So if your looking for something to keep yourself or the kids amused get Just Dance 2 as it is soooo much fun!!!! X
Tomy Pop Up Pirate is a good easy family game! It's for 2-4 players and states 4+. I was happy my daughter wanted this for Christmas as this was one of my favourite games as a young child! The game is easy to set up and simple enough to play with young kids (my daughter at the time was 3). The aim of the game is to slide the different bright coloured swords into the barrel to see whose sword will make the pirate pop!! I like this for young kids as it's not too fiddly and my now 4 year old daughter and 5 year old niece often play this together without any help letting me get on with my housework! Not too expensive either, I paid £16 but this was for two board games on special offer buy buying it on it's own it was only £10 (from Asda). I would recommend this for familes with young kids to play with as it's hard wearing and easy to set up
and play! X
I am terrible for buying things just because they look good and it drives my husband mad! The handheld Dyson DC16 is one of them, buy I have to say this is one gadget i could not go without! This is a fantastic little Hoover and as advertised has the beat suction for a handheld device. It is extremlely handy when I have sweeped the floor and need to pick up the little mound of dust and crumbs and rather than having to go get out the big upright hoover I just get this out! I find it handy for doing the stairs and my husband uses it for hoovering his car when it needs a quick clean! I paid £100 for it but i think it was well worth it (even if my hubby did have a moan). I like how you can attach the charger to the wall and keep it out the way! The only downfall I think is the battery could last longer as it only gives you 10 minutes of time and takes 2 hours to fully charge! But I still love my little Dyson! X
Normally I don't buy ready meals, most meals are cooked from scratch but there is the odd night when i just don't have the time. Recently when I was following the Weightwatchers diet Tesco Light Choices Chicken Tikka Masala was one of the meals recommended at the meeting. I decided to give it a go one night after working late and was surprised to say it was very tasty especially for a low fat meal! It is filling unlike other healthy low fat meals tried in the past! The sauce is creamy and has big slices of pepper and onion through it and the chicken was tasty as with the rice which was also nice! I would recommend this for a quick ready meal even if you aren't on a diet! I opted for the microwave option rather than oven cooking and it was fine! Not quite the same as take away but enjoyed it! Tasty tasty! X
I bought this when it was on special offer for £5.50 as it is normally £9 and didn't want to spend all that when i had never used the product before! I bought this in shade pink for life but didn't really like the colour I felt like a
dolly when I had it on! To be perfectly honest I wasn't all that impressed with the lip gloss. I found it to be quite sticky and certainly didn't make my lips plump and full, it didn't last very long on my lips either and after a few hours and two cups of tea I was needing to reapply. I found aswell that when I reapplied the Lip gloss it went quite lumpy. I am normally a fan of Avon products as find they are good value for money but unfortunatly this is one product i wouldn't recommend to friends or family!
I bought this in Boots a couple of years ago using my advantage card points that I had built up! I absolutley love this perfume! It's smells fresh and funky! I use it as an everyday perfume and someone always comments asking what perfume I'm wearing! It's not floral or musky smelling more fresh and fruity! I love wearing it as it has a nice summery smell to it! I have also bought it as part of a gift set and the shower gel smells just as good, this come in a soft plasticy turquoise coloured box which I now use for storing my nail polishes in which was handy! The scent is long lasting and you don't need to spray lots and lots! It's not too expensive either! I'm sure I paid around £27 for the gift set for a 75ml bottle of eau de toilette and a 50ml shower gel! So if you fancy treating yourself or buying a gift for someone I recommend this perfume or better still the gift set! X
Now feet!!!! I hate feet especially my own!! A couple of years ago i badly neglected my tootsies to the point that one of my heels ended up cracked and very very sore to walk on and to be fair they weren't a pretty sight to
look at! I was having a nosy through my grannys Avon book when I come across Heel Softening Cream which was on special for £1.75 so I bought it. This is really good to help relieve and condition your sore heels and after only using it for 4 days I noticed a big difference. Even now in the current brochure the cost is £3.60 for 75ml but I think it's worth it! Also most Avon brochures have special deals ie: 3 for 2 or a reduced price! There is also other Footwork products in the range that I would recommend! Excellent feet to make your tootsies pretty and soft!
We bought this fantastic storage box to keep some of our daughters Happyland collection in mostly for the figures and cars and small accessories. When we bought this we got it while Early Learning Centre had a sale on so we only paid £12 for it, but to be honest we would have paid the full price for it! It is bright and colourful with lots of detail, my daughter loves to set up her happyland village on this as it has roads and streets on it! It is easy to keep clean as well as it can be wiped with a damp cloth. I like it because it isn't fiddly and my four year old can unzip it into the playmat and also tidy it away herself! This is worth the money and a good size for storing your happylanders in! I would recommend this as it doubles up as a storage box and playmat!
Before I bought Radox Antibacterial Handwash I didn't really stick to just one handwash product, I just kinds bought whatever was on special! My husband always used the Radox shower or bath products so when I saw this on special (3 bottles for £2) I got it as we go through alot of handwash in our house! This product smells great and doesn't dry out your hands! I always make sure there is a bottle in my bathroom and kitchen! I find this especially effective after cooking (which I do alot) as it takes away any strong smells left on your hands like garlic, onion and spices! It smells good too, very clean and fresh and suitable for all the family (sometimes I find handwashes are all quite feminine smelling). My husbands hands are always grubby looking after work and even though he washes his hands before he leaves work the first thing he does when he comes in is rinse his hands with the handwash as he says it takes away the metal factory smell he always has when he had been at work! This is a good buy and not expensive! X
I first used some of the range after I was given this as a gift! I had often looked at the products in the shop but thought it a bit expensive but the products are worth every penny spent on them!
I have the scrub but in a tub. It is absolutly fantastic and leaves your skin feeling soft and smooth! It smells amazing too! This is a great product to use to get your skin ready for when you are using fake tan as it removes any dead flaky dry skin! It is also good for removing the tan as it is quite harsh! I could go on and on about this product but you would get bored! This scrub is amazing and you will love it! The product is well packaged with quirky little sayings! Ideal gift for a friend but personally i would just buy it and keep it for myself lol!! X
When I had my son 11 years ago I used to do the whole boiling the kettle and sticking the bottle in a jug if hot water to heat his milk up but found that if the bottle had been in the fridge this would take ages especially through the night and the last thing that you want when your up with a hungry baby is them screaming because there waiting so long, so when I was pregnant second time round I bought the Avent bottle warmer and I'm glad I did! Personally I don't think it deserves the bad reviews it gets! Love the fact it compact and could be easily stored away, and can be took with you if your travelling or out and about visiting! I found it especially useful at night - I used to take the bottle warmer upstairs with me, pop the bottle in to heat while changing my daughter and the night time feeds where over and done with within 30 minutes! Once my daughter was on solids it can even be used for heating jars of food! I think this is an essential accessory for any new parent, good priced and would recommend this!!!
Happyland is a range of toys exclusive to Early Learning Centre and I can honestly say that buying the complete village set has never made my daughter so happy! I bought this set as part if my daughters christmas when she was 19 months - she is 4 now and the toys still give her hours of enjoyment and me hours of peace lol! At first I bought her the village set for £59, my husband thought this was a but expensive for plastic people and little houses but I think it was worth every penny! The toys are over 2 years old and still in great condition and they go everywhere with my girl! I love the fact that there is so much in the range to choose from - there is the village, the funfair, construction, vets, hospital, rockets, garages, cars, animals etc. The list goes on and on! You can either buy specific sets or little people to add to the collection! It's reasonably priced and you can pick up a set for £4.99. It does say from 18 months but I do think it's suited to slightly older but just by a few months! I would recommend these toys to anyone for their kids!!!
I have a few different brands of bronzer in my make up bag and this is definately one of my favorites! Avon Arabian Glow Bronzing Pearls come in a cute little pot and are protected with a sponge cover! Like i said I have a few bronzers but I do always seem to go back to this. For a full size pot you are £9 but you will find that alot if times this is on special ie: a reduced price or a multi buy option! I love the healthy glow it gives your face especially if you have a tan (fake or natural) and I don't think it's too orange or shimmery just nice and bright! I don't feel that this needs constantly reapplied either! I think that this bronzer is a good price and for me always lasts a long time! Every girl should have these bronzing pearls in their cosmetic bag!! X
Parazone flushable bathroom wipes are exactly what they say they are! They are moist, smell good and clean and they don't ever block up your toilet! I even clean my window sill with the wipes! They are in a handy resealable pack and good value for money at less than £2 a packet! (I find Asda usually has them on special offer) I clean everything in my bathroom with these wipes - the toilet, sink, bath, shower cubicle, wall tiles and even the floor! They don't smell too strong and leave a clean fresh smell! I like the fact that they don't leave streaky marks either! Good value for money! And the fact that they flush away and you don't have to dispose of them in the bin gives them bonus points! Top marks for these wipes! Would definatly recommend these for anyone who loves cleaning up! These are by far my favorite bathroom cleaner!
When my daughter was born I didn't even think about buying a swing as we had a bouncer but the girls in my work bought the Fisher Price take along Rainforest Swing. My daughter absolutley loved this and was always very comfortable in this! It's bright and colourful and not heavy and bulky! We have a caravan so it was handy to take away with us as it doesn't take up alot if room! Once mh daughter was too big (we used it til she was about 6 months) I gave it to my sister for my niece! She wasn't the best of sleepers and my sister would use this to settle the baby! I would recommend this to any new parent and to be honest once we had this swing we never really used the bouncer! Great colours, various different settings and sounds! Probably the best gift we received! X
