One sheep, two sheep, three sheep, four…. Sound familiar? Falling asleep at night can be a struggle if you haven’t allowed yourself time to switch off from your day. Your sleeping environment and what you do in the run-up to bedtime can have a big influence on the quality of your snoozing. When you sleep like a log, you feel like a superstar. And you’ll be pleased to know there are simple things that can help you gently drift off. Like having fabulous bedding and sticking to an easy-peasy bedtime routine.
Insignia, the UK’s premier brand for luxury steam and hydro massage showers, has launched a digital LED Shower Head, powered by dynamo technology, to help prevent scalding in the shower. This innovative gadget measures the temperature of the water and displays it through a digital read out and coloured safety lights, giving exact control of the heat of the water.
Bath time is always a fun time for my children and a relaxing time for me as I can just sit there and watch them. They love to pretend to swim and play with their bath toys. Recently, I came across Good Bubble via a fellow blogger and saw that they get a good review. In particular, the thing that caught my attention is the use of the superfruit in their product. There are some very interesting fruits and there are no such fruity smelling products for children that I’m aware of. I was pleased that they got in touch for us to try their superfruit toiletries too.
Good Bubble comes in two different superfruit ranges: dragon fruit and cloudberry. Each range comes with four different products: hair & body wash, shampoo, conditioner and bubble bath. I have received three products: Cloudberry Bubble Bath, Dragon Fruit Hair & Body Wash and Dragon Fruit Conditioner.
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.
Having owned a set of old fashioned analogue bathroom scales for a long time, it is a big step up for us to move to the digital world of bathroom scales! Having digital scales can make taking the reading easier. I still remember the days of having to crouch down and squint to try and take the reading. There is always good points and bad points about having a precise reading. Take my husband for example, he weighed x amount and he could not believe that he had put on weight. He insisted that he had a lot of added weight on, because it was a cold – he wore a coat, scarf and had his phone in his pocket. So he undressed himself and weighed again. He was instantly pleased that he lost 1.5 kg just from clothing and phone! So if you are as fussy as him, perhaps you should get yourself a digital scales!
The lovely people from IWantOneOfThose.com has kindly sent me a Toxic Pop Up Laundry Bag for review. They look extremely cool (and apt) placed in our family bathroom as it will contain the most filthy children’s clothing. IWantOneOfThose.com is a website that sells gadgets, gizmos, a range of gift ideas including gifts for him, for her and even gifts for pets and home & garden products. There are so many different gifts to choose from. Take a look, and see if anything catches your eye!
This Disney Princess Ariel’s Vanity Set lets girls recreate their favourite Little Mermaid moments while in the tub. It includes Ariel bath vanity, lipstick, perfume bottle, cream blush compact and a cream eye shadow pot. Due to the natural of these bath items and my child’s privacy, the toys are played in both on outside and inside the bath tub. These photos are taken before the bath time.
Recently, through a fellow blogger, I got to learn about Hygiene Revolution. The Hygiene Revolution has been borne out of the claims made by other brands in the hygiene/cleaning space. They believe that products containing Byotrol technology are the only products on the market that can kill and protect from unwanted germs for up to 24 hours.
I have been sent two products: Tesco Anti-Bacterial Multi-Purpose Cleaner and Boots Anti Viral Hand Foam. If you followed my blog, you should know I am house proud and I clean my house very regularly. I use all sorts of products to keep it clean.
Cleaning has become one of my regular pastimes as a Stay At Home Mum. To be honest, I do love to clean my house as I am house proud. Over the years, I have tried so many big brand cleaning products and recently came across Maid Simple. Maid Simple is a family business that has been involved with cleaning products for over 20 years. I have received four cleaning products from them and this is what I think about their products.
There are so many different cleaning products on the market. Are you getting confused with the chemicals used and how effective they are? Until today, I had not heard about Alma Win Orange Oil Cleaner. The company kindly gave me a bottle to try. It is an all-purpose cleaner and completely biodegradable. It is concentrated and comes in baby safe screw top cap with a flow control spout. The smell of orange is quite strong.
Monte Bianco, an innovative yet simple style of toothbrush, is an ideal addition to your bathroom to keep it eco-friendly. It allows you to change your toothbrush every three months while reducing the amount of plastic you throw away.
Bath time is always a fun time for my children. They love to pretend to swim and playing with their bath toys. Therefore, I am really happy to review Crazy Soap to add more fun to their bath time. Crazy Soap is suitable for children aged 3+ under adult supervision and should not be used on the face, mouth, eyes, ears or broken skin.
Gelli Baff has teamed up with Izziwizzi Kids Play Fest® to help you raise money for Comic Relief. The theme for Play Fest® is Do Something Funny with Jelly.

As a busy mum of two young children I have no time to go to a spa or sometimes it’s struggle to even to have a nice hot bath. When I got to review Dead Sea Spa Magik products, it was a good reason to make more ‘me’ time. I received a sachet of Mineral Shampoo & Hair Magik Serum, Spa Magik Salt Brushing 500g, Spa Find Dead Sea Bath Salts and Calmit Extract.
Cosatto changing unit is the most straightforward to assemble and took me 30 minutes by myself. Not much of screwing or hammering. There are lots of useful storage compartments but they are a little too small for big items like eczema cream. I like the shape of the bathtub, which is beneath the changing mat, as it allows baby to sit at an angle. As for the bathtub, we didn’t use it as we had the changing unit in our living room. It comes with a comfy, padded and easy to clean changing mat.
