During winter, the sun rises quite late and sets very early, around the time your child’s school finishes. As a driver, we all know sometimes it can be quite hard to spot pedestrians from a distance, especially if they are wearing black or a dark colour, which is typical of many schools.

TinyMe sells a fantastic wide range of cute personalised items for children like name labels, lunch bags, wooden puzzles, wall stickers, calendars (personalised and non-personalised) and gift cards, and have been doing so since 2006. They are based in Australia and all the items are made from there. They do have a Birmingham based office to deliver the goods out to their customers.

This is my sixth challenge as a Bostik Blogger and this month’s theme is Monster. I have received a crafting box packed with coloured paper, pompoms, felts, Blu Tack glu dots, Blu Tack white glue and many more.
My daughter asked if we could make a monster bag. So after much research online and checking the materials that we have available, I decided to make a Cookie Monster bag using Duck Tape.
When I was asked to review Trolley Bags, the first thing that got stuck in my head was those granny bags that you bring out to buy groceries. I was so wrong! In fact, there are made up of four various sized reusable shopping bags that are used for packing your shopping at the supermarket checkout.
Nowadays, I tend to do scan as you shop as it is so much easier than getting your grocery out from the trolley and waiting at the checkout to pay. So I very much welcome this idea of using Trolley Bags.
When I received the trolley bags, my first impression was that they are quite bulky measuring 100cm x 20cm x 15cm (with 2 long rails on each bag) but fairly lightweight (around 2 kg). They are made from tough materials on the upper top and mesh on the bottom.
A few weeks ago, I was invited to a Hotter Shoes event to get to know more about their shoes and their company. I am ecstatic to learn that they produce their own shoes in the UK! In fact, they are the UK’s biggest shoe manufacturer and make a pair of shoes every 20 seconds. They started off making slippers and now they have grown to make shoes as comfortable as slippers.
We are no strangers to Trunki as we already have their ride on luggage from a prior holiday. We also bought the BoostApak on our way to Singapore. It was a fantastic purchase for us! As in the UK, Singapore is strict in that children should be sat in a car seat/booster seat. Now whenever we go travelling, we don’t need to rent a car seat as the BoostApak is ready to use!
After seeing children carrying their stuff in flimsy and non-supportive backpacks, YUUWorld wanted to produce a backpack that would be more supportive – yet light-weight. They used the advice of BackCare, the UK’s charity for healthier backs, to incorporate ergonomic features into the YUUbag.
How can a bloggers’ night in be without pampering ourselves! After all the food and games we played, we settled ourselves and painting our nails. Some of us tried the Models Own Midori Melon-scented nail polish. The colour is too bight for my liking otherwise it is a nice polish and is easy to apply.
A few weeks ago, I was invited to attend a dinner event with TinyMe. Before that, I had not heard of them before nor used their products. It was great that I was able to see their beautiful personalised products. It was really enjoyable night and it was great to meet some fellow bloggers. We were each given a voucher to spend on their website.
This coming Halloween, do you have any plans for your children? Anyone having a party? Each year, my children and I will go to our village hall to celebrate. There is usually a best pumpkin carving competition, a ghost walk around the village, tarot card reading, apple bobbing, smack the rat etc. I didn’t celebrate Halloween until I had my two little monsters! I really enjoy getting into the spirit of the celebration with my children and they do too. Over the years I have bought them plastic buckets to go trick or treating. This year YourDesign.co.uk offered to send me a personalised Trick or Treat bag for review!
It is quite scary that in few weeks time, my little girl Ms C is going to attend primary school. I am getting mentally prepared to sort out their stationary before the school starts! I am pleased to come across Miffy through Twitter and fellow bloggers. As many may know, Miffy has been around for more than 60 years and currently Miffy merchandise is sold across 5 continents, there is a TV series and recently a movie.
I was very lucky to be sent two StarBright Designs’ Kids Cotton Drawstring Bags (In red with Spaceman Star and in pink with Allsorts Sweets Star) to review. I gave the pink drawstring bag to another close friend of mine to get a second opinion review.
It was designed and made by a lovely lady called Charlie Creen. Recently, she set up her business themed around her love of all things STARS! She adds her lovely hand drawn and hand cut designs to cards, cotton bags, aprons, t-shirts, soft furnishings etc.
