Corbico Jewellery – The Audrey Crystel Charm Review and Giveaway

CaptureYou will all know by now that Corbico Jewellery is one of my favourite go to places for some stunning jewellery pieces, well once again in collaboration with Corbico Jewellery I am more than happy to bring you this great review and giveaway.

Corbico Jewellery offer some lovely pieces that you simply cannot find on the high street, it really is worth checking for the new pieces that are introduced regularly as they are simply perfect as a gift for somebody or even to treat yourself.

I have been very lucky to receive these gorgeous Silver Rhodium plated double hoop earrings to review.


They are perfect to wear as they are just the right size (I find with big hoops sometimes it is tricky to turn your head!!)  The hoop collection of earrings is new to the site and you can also get these double hoop earrings in Rose Gold as well, for £7.99 they really are well priced.

Now look at these stunning bracelets that are new to the site too.


The Bette Coin Bracelet is really sparkly and so different along with the Audrey Crystal Charm Bracelet below.


They are a very stylish set of three bangle bracelets in three different colours: yellow gold, rose gold and rhodium. The bracelets are slightly elasticated and will fit small to medium wrist sizes. All bracelets have a matching crystal studded bead charm for extra sparkle. However I will say that I have very large hands (can stretch over an octave on a piano don’t you know!!) and I have no problem with the fitting of the Audrey Crystal Charm Bracelet 🙂

So once again I do recommend that you take a look at the Corbico Jewellery website to find that something a little bit special and different and thanks to Corbico Jewellery one of my very lucky followers can win their very own Audrey Crystal Charm bracelet by entering the Rafflecopter giveaway below.

Corbico Jewellery – Love you to the moon and back bracelet review and giveaway




So the last review and giveaway I did was so successful the wonderful team at Corbico Jewellery have asked me to run another giveaway for a piece of their gorgeous jewellery.

As mentioned before Corbico Jewellery are an independent online fashion jewellery boutique, including the latest catwalk and celebrity trends in fashion jewellery, there are so many wonderful pieces that you simply will not find on the high street.

It is so nice to be able to find something that little bit different and that actually means something, you will find many different choices from the inspirational bracelet collection on the Corbico Jewellery website




Also if you post a review on any product on the Corbico Jewellery website you buy, along with also uploading a picture of yourself wearing any item of jewellery purchased you will get 20% of your next purchase from the site another great offer from Corbico Jewellery!

The Lost Smile – Book review and giveaway

20160612_180416Book worm alert again!  You will all know that I am a book worm and I am pleased to say that H is too, so any opportunity to read new books then you will know the answer will always be yes!

What does a smile bring to your day?  I always find that a smile from H can brighten up any of my days even the really bad ones.

The Lost Smile is the first children’s storybook to be released by Wrigley’s Extra as part of their Extra Smile back charity campaign (more about that later).

The story is about a little boy who realises his family are not smiling anymore and goes on a smile hunt to find them. This raised a good deal of conversation with H about where we would hunt for a smile if it went missing and what we could do as a family to discuss why a smile might disappear and how we as individuals could help get the smile back. The answers from H were very interesting and highlighted some of the things that children find important that as adults we may just not consider.


The illustrations are so good and easy for little ones who cannot read to understand, it really is a lovely little book.

Interestingly Wrigley’s research has shown what we all know really, the simple pleasures in life make our children smile such as pulling silly faces (44%), reading stories (28%) and hide and seek (27%) being the best and simplest way of putting a smile on a child’s face.

The Extra Smile Back Project aims to protect children’s smiles by donating money from every pack of sugarfree gum sold during the promotional period to charity partner Action for Children. The monies will be used to create and run oral health workshops, endorsed by the Oral Health Foundation. With this activity Wrigley aims to protect the smiles of over 10,000 children and 5,000 parents across the UK, see the following Wrigley’s smileback link for more information.

Traidcraft Geobars Review and giveaway

Are you like me always feeling a bit peckish but trying to be good and eat healthy?  I am always on the lookout for healthy snacks.  I will be following up on this blog post with some information on healthy eating for children (that is a nightmare in our house) and plan to collaborate with an exceptional healthy eating blogger to come up with some snack suggestions and eating plans for children shortly so watch this space!! Anyway back to the scrumptious Geobars!


Now not only is the Geobar very tasty it also uses Fairtrade ingredients from around the world,  Traidcraft have taken note of customer feedback and the new Geobar is less sweet and a good source of fibre, it is quite filling.


As part of its pioneering work in Myanmar, Geobar is also set to benefit from a Traidcraft world first which will see the first Fairtrade marked exports of the country’s rice.  Traidcraft work with farmers to support their business through improved farming practices which will make them better equipped for the future.

Did you know that around 46% of people snack between meals? Geobar provides the perfect energy boost at any time of the day. My favourite was the chocolate flavour (naturally!) but Geobar also comes in wild apricot and mixed berry flavour too. Not too dry and not too sticky the Geobar was just right.

Feel good about snacking and know that with the Fairtrade element of the Geobar you are giving something back to make everybody feel good.

One of my lucky followers has the opportunity of winning some Geobars for themselves by entering the Rafflecopter competition below

My Nametags review and giveaway


So time is ticking on and we are getting ever so closer to H starting school! Whilst part of me is desperately trying not to think about it, the other organised part of me is trying to get things a little bit prepared in advance.

I have had nametag labels previously from My Nametags and cannot recommend them highly enough, we have nearly used them all up with H being in pre-school as he likes to put his name tag on everything, even show and tell stuff!!  They have been a godsend as we have 100% reduced things that have been lost, everything he takes to pre-school has come back since we have been using My Nametags.

The process really is simple, you go onto the My Nametags website and follow the step by step guide, you can choose iron on labels or stick on labels which is what we chose.  There are many designs, fonts, colours so you can really personalise your label.


Now My Nametags have a wonderful new selection of Mr Men and Little Miss Designs so it was a perfect choice for us to choose Mr Bump for H (he loves Mr Men and had a Mr Bump birthday cake this year)


The process is so simple, delivery is super quick and the labels are a high quality finish and really do last, we have washed a number of clothes a number of times with the My Nametag label on it with no effect at all to the label.

I really do recommend that you check out My Nametags, it is a quick and very easy solution to naming your children’s stuff and one less thing to think about when getting things ready for your child to attend school.

Now one of my very lucky followers has the chance to win their own set of Mr Men or Little Miss labels by entering the Rafflecopter competition below.  Good Luck everyone.
