I have a chafing solution

Hey readers,

Its now summer and the weather is hot, hot, hot and nothing better than to get your summer clothing on but there is one problem and that is the dreaded chafing.

I am a big girl I won’t lie, I am size 22 but that doesn’t mean that I don’t want to wear skirts, dresses or shorts. Now, I suffer from chub rub, whereby the top of my thighs sweat due to the heat and then this causes them to rub and burn with the potential to cause a great deal of pain. It is not fun. I mention I am a bigger person however, you can have chafing problems being smaller as well, but being fat really doesn’t help in this situations.

Well, I have tried a lot of products out but I am open to more options, that is why when smoovall said they can send me out a sample of the chafing spray to try out and write a blog post about my experience I was delighted.

I think the packaging is super cute, simple and does not shout hey I have chub rub. First of all, it is handy to have the spray in your bag when you are out and about, making it convenient and you can top easily making you comfortable throughout the day.

I have tried the spray a handful of times and during these times have been super hot and I mean HOT. As we have got a heatwave at the moment in the UK this product couldn’t come at a better time. To apply the spray you have to spray from the area that it is affected on the upper thigh. The consistency of the spray feels light and doesn’t feel heavy or sticky. It has a pleasant smell which is a big deal because if you are going where it then you know you want a fragrance you enjoy.

The spray lasted all day, didn’t get patchy and my skin felt really smooth with the appliance on. When I returned home after I had been out for well over three hours, during that period I didn’t need to top up with a spray which is brilliant, saves money in the long run. There was no fiction and it made going out much more enjoyable. Ok, I can wear shorts or similar garments under my skirts but there is something refreshing about not needing to have to do that and feeling cooler without that option.

Guidance by Smoovall on how to apply the spray.

I shall be using this, well all summer for a start and then some. I found the spray a really good size as I could put in the bag if I needed to top up making it very convenient for me. Using this product for as a barrier to stop chafing really boosting my confidence to wear the clothes I want to wear in the summer without feeling uncomfortable out and about. I normally use E45 hand cream because it is good but short-lived so this chafing spray tops that for durability. So I would definitely recommend for anyone that suffers from chafing and what to feel comfortable in your own skin.

A single bottle of 80 ml Smoovall Skin Contact Spray contains an average of 30 spray applications. It is priced at £12.99 plus £1.99 for delivery, which is free on orders over £20.

Specially delivered chocolate

Hey readers,

As we are fast approachFathers day (17th June) I think I have found the perfect present for any chocolate-loving daddy out there. It is personalised chocolate from an online company called Morse Toad. The idea is to choose a bad pun gifts and put it on to some tasty chocolate into a box. It is a fun and lovely way to add a personal touch to a present. Sometimes it can be hard to find a present for a man and not to make it so predictable so this is a perfect gift that adds a touch of thought to the gift.

I think one of the most appealing things about this chocolate gift is that it is a letterbox gifts so if your in a rush, you don’t have to go anywhere and can do all the work online and wait for it to be delievered to your letterbox.

You can add a picture card also to the box with a message. The picture card is something you can be kept after all the chocolate is eaten. It is an ideal size for putting in the wallet or on the fridge.

The delivery is super fast within 3 to 5 days and it is secure and comes in a shiny gold envelope making it feel luxurious.

You can add bad puns which are a playful way to add to a gift. I have used super dad that you can see in the pictures above so very ideal for Father’s day. to the chocolate such as super dads like I have in my pictures which is great for Father’s Day there.

I really like the packaging of the box, it is not over the top put fun and character to it. It will definitely put a smile on anyone’s face if they received this personalised gifts .

Also, do check out Morse Toad’s competiton where you can be in the chance to win £100 and 25 free boxes. You can enter here.

Let me tell you something I like to save some pennies where I can. There is a lot of useful information on a website called Gratisfaction where you can find deals or free samples.

Gratisfaction is a wonderful place on the internet where it gives current deals, freebies vouchers and samples. I like anything where all the information is in one place so I don’t have to hunt left, right and centre.

There are many difficult types of products displayed on the site including makeup, children products, food and homeware, what is not to love.

Here are some of the types of items advertised on the site.

All you have to is sign up to the home testing club to get a chance to test out products, result! Yes, I too have signed up to this as well, so fingers crossed because I too love a freebie!

What a beaut of a freebie this is, a Thorntons chocolate egg just in time for Easter. To qualify all you need to be is on 02 to get it off the app.

Image result for FREE Wild Caviar Day Moisturiser

Next on the list is a code given on the site to get a free Cougar Wild Caviar day moisturiser but you do have to pay for the postage. It normally worth £18.99.

Looking for cheap transport?

Hey readers,

Travelling can be expensive business whether that be using or car or even public transport. A better way to travel and save costs is cycling, not only that but your doing exercise as well kills two birds with one stone.

To cut down costs even more instead of a good way to do research beforehand on deals before heading straight in and flashing the cash.

If you are browsing the internet a good place to explore is www.bike-discounts.co.uk.

Bike-discounts is a great site to check out the latest deals on bikes. Did you know that the site does not only cover bikes but also bike accessories from the top leading brands, such as Go Outdoors and Halfords.

Eastway Emitter R3 (105) Road Bike   Road Bikes

The site searches for the latest deals for bikes and accessories so you don’t have to do the hard work.

There is the option to do a search for specifics on the site such lights for bikes so you can save time in gathering the relevant items rather than scrolling through.

On the site, there are also discount codes you can get to use on an order.

Alternatively, if you just want to browse the latest deals then there is a section just for the hottest deals, to help give you some inspiration if you need it.

I hope you found this information and love to know if you have used the site and if you had any successful money-saving purchases.

Moshi Monster Mystery Box

Hey readers,

Have you heard of Moshi Monsters – it is basically a virtual game for children between the ages of 5-12 years old. You have a pet and customise your pet then you can go on the game and complete tasks and get rewards. You can personalise area and communicate with other players.

Moshi Monsters have brought out a mystery box that you receive in the post. I am trying it out with my five year old.

Well first and foremost you can personalised letter sent to your home outlining that you are on a secret mission and that in the coming week you will get send a personalised box that you need to complete the task.

When receiving the Moshi mystery box there is a enclosed letter with a Moshi monster stamp making it very realistic and fun for the child. It is an introductory letter outlining what the child has to do and also details about codes and the Moshi monster app. Also a special code on the bottom of the letter to get your next Moshi mystery box. On the other side there is fun activities for the child to do, a word search with all words relating to Moshi Monster. Then the second activity is to spot ten differences between two pictures. PICTURE OF MOSHI LETTER / BLUR OUT PICTURE

This is what the box looks like below.

DSC_3477DSC_3476Point Blur_Jun262017_091125Point Blur_Jun262017_091522

A few days latter a lovely designed box with my son’s name on arrived in the post, which made him super excited because he doesn’t normally get post for him so it makes him feel super special and all grown up.

I love all the charters and the playful design. When you open it is a small letter and then the main section is a map of Moshi city which is another genius idea.

In the box contains several activities, which is such a cool idea to keep children entertained (perfect for rainy days or the summer holiday). It is a subscription box and it all links together.  There are codes that I believe you need to collect or open up online in order to get more boxes. You have to visit the Moshi Monsters site here.

One of the items is a comic of story which is continued in the next month’s box. It is called The Poached Egg (so it is great for practising your reading skills). The story is left open until you get the next subscription  box.

There are two fun activities you can do with your child. I like the fact all the materials are provided and that they are in a yellow or green envelope which is associated with the same colour instruction leaflet. For someone like me who gets in a mess easily this is a top idea. On the instruction also it indicates how much time it takes, how much mess and how difficult it is so you can plan around what works for you.

One of the activities is an arty type theme activity called monsterific moshling egg. You can get creative and allows the child to help cut, glue and paint (all things my child loves) cue best mummy ever!!! It is really easy to follow and not as stressful as originally thought. Step by step guide with pictures is a lifesaver, making it less stressful for me. It allowed quality time with my child and he really enjoyed working together as a team.

The other activity is the the frozen moshling eggs which is a fun way to learn about science and the different properties of water. My son was really excited and enthusiastic with this one, as he loves learning and seeing how things worked out. We got a balloon put each Moshi monster into a balloon. Then filled it up with water and tied a knot in the balloon. Really straight forward and fun. We had to then put the ‘eggs’ into the freezer and wait three hours so they got frozen. Then the fun really began for my boy when he snipped the balloons and released the frozen egg. He then put the sachet of salt onto the egg and also with the pipette but warm water on top of the egg. Both my five year and three year old enjoyed watched the frozen water turn to liquid water. The best bit for them was getting the frozen water shall, AKA the egg and smashing it up. Nothing beats playing with water for my boys. The loved finding the Moshlings and this was such a fun and different way to do something with your child.

DSC_3488DSC_3502DSC_3513DSC_3515mDSC_3527

We also had to put a sticker on completion of activities which was a great way to praise a child.

Inside the actual physical box is a A4 certificate where you can write your child’s name in to say that they have completed the tasks set out by Buster BumbleChops – one of the characters in Moshi Monsters. This is a fantastic way to encourage and praise your  child, making them feel really good.

There is also two pictures on one piece on either side of Moshi monster related stuff to colour in. So there is an element of creative and imagination for the child.

DSC_3510

There is a sheet with pictures of all the Moshi Monsters and a brief overview of what each character is like.

DSC_3485

There is a sheet with jokes on based around Moshi Monsters (probably more advanged for the older child)  but still an element of fun for the younger child.

DSC_3486

It such a fun and creative way to do something with a child. If you struggle with thinking for ideas then the proscription gives you all the ideas/instructions plus materials so there is less stress.

The only thing that I would say and this depends on your child as well is the online game and some of the material like the jokes were not really age appropriate for my son. I think he found it quite difficult to understand. But this is a wide age range from 5 to 12 and definitely the online game is more marketed towards the older end of the age range. Some of the basic games my son can play and enjoyed. He also liked creating a personalised chatrater, giving it a name (poppy) and designing hte room.

DSC_3536DSC_3534DSC_3536

Also there were trading cards, where you can scan the code, found on the app and you can get special characters, diamonds or other type of rewards. The trading cards also game in the box and you had to scratch the box to find the code, which is something my son really loved doing.

DSC_3483

Overall, it is a fun way to play with your child and get them excited because it is personal to them, making them feel extra special.

Children's CozyPhones Review

best and Hey readers,

As a parent sometimes I wish for a bit of quiet time, especially if you have listened to the Gummy Bear song for the umpteenth time. Well here is a solution by having some CozyPhones headband headphones to give to my child to plug into tablet time. I don’t have to worry about them falling our as the earphones are inside the headband giving that extra security.

IMG_8697

IMG_8695

Firstly,  I absolutely love the concept of the headband and as I have child that would constantly be pulling the ear phones in and out this is a helpful product to stop that from happening. Not to mention the design is soft, fun with the bright green frog character (although other characters are available). The only downfall sadly is the size is a bit too small so quite fiddly to put on my son’s head, however this  could be the fact my son has a big head.

Once we mastered getting the headband on and making sure the speaker part (is a round circle type thing, proper technical term there) in place they were good to go.

My eldest loves the headband because he feels all grown up as he has seen mummy with headphones when she goes out for a run.

The stitching is really good quality and the material of the headband is soft fleece material. The cord has a 35mm plug so is compatible with a lot of different devices. The 36 inch braided cord comes in 36 inches  and can manage the wear and tear of a normal child life.  There is free shipping and cost $19.99. If you not a happy then a money back  guarantee.

Overall they are brilliant and much better then ear plugs. My son said they were really comfortable and he could hear really well through the headphones. Another positive about the headbands is that they are perfect for road trips when you need something to distract your child from asking are we there yet over and over. Giving you time to concentrate on a relaxed journey. They can also make great gifts for birthdays.

You can find more details about the product here – CozyPhones.
