This year I am doing most of my Christmas shopping online and I have found the perfect store for unique and great quality gifts for little ones Haggus and Stookles. They have a huge range of products and they also take Australian Baby Card, which is a great saving this time of year.

We have put together a great list of products that are useful, worth their money and that parents love. Click on the images below to read more about the products or to place an order.

Starting with My Little One Natural Infant Skin Care from Natralus. This range is designed specifically to help care for babies, toddlers and children's delicate skin and all ingredients are organic. They contain no nasty products and are paediatrician approved.

Next up is Brolly Sheets, these take the Hassel out of bed wetting. They are a waterproof sheet and mattress protector. I love that they sit on the top of your fitted sheet and not under the sheet as this saves a lot of time with changing sheets. They are also great for travelling and generally make life with bed wetting a whole lot easier!

What's All The Hype With Marley Spoon?

Sunset-chaser-_20170530-024124_1

I had seen Marley Spoon advertised on the Net and also have had friends and work collegues rave about them, but to be honest I am not really one that likes food being delivered, I much prefer to pick my own produce and know that I am getting exactly what I want, I've tried ordering groceries on line before and it just doesn't work for me. So when we were asked to try out Marley Spoon I was a little sceptical, I knew it would be great to have food delivered to my door with full instructions on how to make the meal, the convenience side I was really looking forward to but I wasn't sure about not picking my own produce.

I decided we would try out 2 of their meals , the process was really easy I simply went on line and selected the 2 meals I wanted and for a family of 4.

The box arrived on the Monday Morning and the first thing that surprised me was the fact that both meals had their own separate labelled bag along with a beautiful printed out recipe card. Now this might not be big for some, but occasionally if I arrive home late from work my husband needs to cook and the fact that the herbs and veggies are separated into the right recipes makes a big difference. I asked my husband to buy a cauliflower once and he bought home a cabbage lol He has also bought home Thai basil when I asked for sage, so the fact that everything is in the one bag makes it easy for a beginner cook as well. The protein and cheese was packed in a separate bag with an ice block to keep it cool.

The first night we had this Chilli Basil Beef the flavours where amazing the balance of sweet, sour and heat were amazing, I only used one of the Chilli's as my kids don't like overly hot food. This meal was huge, there are 4 of us and we all ate it and then I also put left over's in 3 containers for hubbies lunches, my kids are 5 and 7 so there may not be left over's if you have teenagers. I was surprised at the size though. My husband messaged me today from work and said it even tastes good cold < winning! The kids ate it too!

The following night we had this Parmesan Chicken Schnitzel and OMG the chicken was so tender and a tip squeezing lemon over it once cooked takes it to a whole new level. Again there was more then enough We got 7 pieces of chicken out of the fillets and was left with 2 left over which the kids had for lunch the following day. The coleslaw was a perfect balance of crispiness and tang. I also think this would be perfect in a bread roll on a Friday night watching the footy or even pre cooked and taken to a picnic. This was so delicious and one that I will be trying again.

I see a lot of value in what Marley Spoon are doing, I love that you can keep the recipe cards and repeat the same recipe down track, I love that it encourages your other half to cook and they have healthy options. I also love that it doesn't take the enjoyment out of cooking, you still get to dice and mix and enjoy the whole process. I also think it's great for entertaining not just to save time, but easy to put together a quick meal that you cooked with very little effort. But most of I love that the ingredients were actually better quality then I am use to and that's a big tick for me.

I was sceptical to start with but I will most defiently be using Marley spoon in the future even if it's just for a couple of meals during the week. I guess you could say I see what all the hype is about now :)

Marley Spoon have been lovely enough to give our followers $35.00 off your first order simply click here and order. There are plenty of meals to choose from!

Memorable Mum Moments with Curash™

curash-1

Anyone who has more than one child knows the struggle of siblings squabbling. Seriously I love being a mum but if there is one thing I can not stand its hearing my 7 and 5 year old argue and whinge at each other, it always ends in tears and normally they are mine ha!

In between the fights and tantrums there are plenty of nice mum moments though and I witnessed one today. I couldn't here much noise coming from their bedrooms and normally that isn't a good sign, so I went to check on them to see what they were doing. Before I got to the door I could hear them talking to each other about their Dolls, I peeked around the corner and saw they were dressing their dolls with about 30 Curash™ baby wipes spalled out around them, they had been playing babies and cleaning their dolls with the wipes. It seriously was the cutest thing to watch < even if they were wasting the wipes. To see their natural little mothering instincts come out was so sweet to see. Obviously my kids love Curash wipes as much as I do!

Fun In The Sun Reviewing Plum Swimwear!

Fun In The Sun Reviewing Plum Swimwear!

 My kids are fish, they literally spend most of the summer swimming, you can guarantee on any given day if I ask them  what they want to do the answer is always either the beach or pool.

 We have the best of both worlds in Sydney, we have great beaches and we also have some fantastic  indoor swimming pools for the days that Sydney weather is temperamental, which means the kids can swim all year round.

 My little ones seem to outgrow swimmers yearly so I was really excited when Plum gifted us their swimmers out of their latest range for us to try.

 

 Plum is an Australian label and is the leader in kids swimwear worldwide, that is pretty impressive right?

 What makes Plum so great is the fact that they are not only on trend with their designs ranging from nautical, vintage and bright themes but they also have UPF 50+ protection from the sun, which is super important for our little ones in the Australian weather.

Their range is endless and includes the following;

 

•Swim Nappy

 

•Bikini

 

•Halter-Necked One Piece

 

•Rash Vests &Shorts

 

•All-In-One Swimsuit

 

•Swimming Trunks

 

•Legionnaires Hats

 

•Board Shorts

What surprised me the most was how well the swimmers were made, the quality is fantastic and they are very affordable and range in sizes from 000 to 7. They make perfect gifts especially for their price point. I know what I am getting the nieces and nephews for Christmas this year!

 

 

And if that isnt enough ABC card holders also receive 20% discount, click here for the details: ABC Discount

Toilet Training Is Easy With Familoo

Toilet Training Is Easy With Familoo

I don't know about you but I have 3 boys and let's just say that toilet training has been messy business. Every time I've walked into the toilet I am met with a mess. We have tried a few things, reward charts, best aim games < haha you name it I'll give it a go if it means a clean toilet, but nothing has worked.

We have tried numerous toilet seats and gadgets with no luck, one toilet seat we tried even scared our 3 year old < go figure!

So you can imagine how excited I was when Familoo contacted us to trial one of their dual toilet seats, yep that's right Familoo is an adult and toddler seat combined in one unit.

Familoo is designed to make toilet training easy and drama free for both you and your toddler.

We were really surprised with how sturdy it was, yet lightweight.

And get this cleaning is a breeze with a one button quick release mechanism, just pop out and wipe over easy. This makes Familoo one of the most hygienic toilet training solutions on the market.

There is nothing worse than when you have to remove the toddler seat off the toilet when you need to go yourself. With Familoo there is no need to remove as the Familoo is held up by a magnetic catch when not in use. That means us mums can use the toilet comfortably without a toddler/training seat getting in the way.

Even dad is happy he can still lift the lid t go to the toilet easily, and put it  back down of course ;)

Would I recommend this product to a toilet training mum? Yes I would, hands down it's the best toilet training product we have tried to date. I also think these would make a great gift for a new mum.

You can find out more here: https://familoo.com.au/   Enter code MYFAMILOO10 to receive a 10% discount 

Now if only someone could invent a product that lets mums go to the toilet in peace ha!
