Persil messy play for little belles and beasts

When I found out Persil had teamed up with Disney to encourage messy play for little Belles and beasts.

I have to say budget wise normally go for own brands, so when the opportunity came for me to try 22 plus and extra two = twenty-four washes and comes with a free £5 Disney store voucher this is a promotion of the new Beauty and the Beast! Every pack purchased to support the live-action remake I jumped at the chance,
I had noticed the capsule was different to my normal cubes two of which go in the top draw but persil capsule in the load and put on for a wash I was so surprised at how fragranced my items were with just one capsule as well. I did a few more loads you know Friday strip beds and bath sheets get a clean day, I could never seem to get a smell at all from any of my washes was always jealous of me mum every load comes out smelling blissful, mine just no smell even with a hot wash clean.
So imagine my surprise when I was also getting the beautiful smell from MY laundry, definitely made me tempted to switch brands and I get a £5 Disney store voucher to treat monkey or KK or myself hehe!
So yes it's been a Beauty to try! And the beastly laundry pile doesn't seem so scary anymore!

Jennifer King, Senior Brand Manager for Persil at Unilever UK, comments, “As one of the UK’s leading household brands, we are thrilled to be joining forces with one of the biggest movies of 2017. With the chance to redeem a £5 Disney voucher with every pack, you can be confident that the all-in-one powerful clean of Persil Capsules will wash away any mess from your little Belle – or Beast.”

Using song, play and interaction Mr Bloom’s Nursery is a fun and inspiring show with strong educational values which will entertain parents and tiddlers alike!

I loved how Mr Bloom tried to interact with the parents and entertain the children I know KK was enjoying it and was sad we had to leave, I don’t think 20 minuet interval is the greatest as keeping them entertained with no entertainment just a suggestion for children shows it there is an interval entertainer would be fab !

Review Yeti spaghetti game

Product Description

Who new Yetti's likes spaghetti? We did! In this wacky, fun game, the noodles are laid across the bowl and Yeti is just sitting there on the noodles…..but as you remove the noodles one by one (be careful!), Yeti could fall into the bowl, and that would mean you lose! For 2 or more players.
Safety Warning
not appropriate for children under the age of 3

Box Contains
1 x Bowl
30 x Noodles
1 x Yeti
1 x Instructions

About this item Features


* A fun, wacky game for kids.
* Remove the spaghetti one by one from underneath Yeti.
* Try and keep Yeti steady on the spaghetti.
* The player who lets Yeti fall into the bowl loses the game.

yeti spag

Since technology came into place and Kk is transfixed on YouTube it's hard to get time when the monkey is asleep for family games.
We were sent yeti in my spaghetti to try.

It made me think of when I was younger playing Kerplunk with my mum.

The aim of the game you have a bowl with plastic spaghetti criss crossed layers and at the end, you place the yetti on top.
Each person takes a turn and has to not get the yetti in the bottom of the bowl.

As you can imagine Kk is rather competitive and it was funny trying to put each other off oh you got it in the bowl, no it's still hanging in there lol then laughing when the loser gets it to the bottom.

Very simple but effective game we found it funny and enjoyable. Thank you for reading

#Sherbetbox Subscription Review

My October #sherbetbox review starts with the pretty and simplistic packaging; I hate receiving boxes that are the way to big for the items it contains.
Clare does so well in providing a good amount in a simple letter size box that the postman can just pop through your door! Now that's what I call happy mail! None of this we couldn't deliver nonsense Clare has you covered.

Inside has a black label with #sherbetbox logo, and the contents are covered in a pink tissue paper holding the folds together with a sticker.

I layering the pink tissue paper and your filled with an information sheet telling you about what is included in this months box.

A small silver tin with a cute hedgehog sticker, inside some mini pegs, colourful push pins and bull clips- I would say this is fab for a vision board.

Then inside a paper bag held three mini square magnets, at first glance I thought this was a book mark magnet but it's magnets, so that's just as cool.

Moving on the three cards with the fox, hedgehog and badgers same as the magnet very autumnal indeed.
The badger card will be perfect for a friend who has recently moved, so that's fantastic!

#sherbetbox

There were two postcards one with a quote and the other an illustration that Clare had drawn very talented and detailed. Beautiful!

A lovely pen 0.05 mm in size which is perfect for me writing in my Bujo, will have to test ghosting.

Finally, we have a small writing set, when I was younger I used to have pen friends one was in Austria, and the other was in Russia these were lovely things to have, I'm looking forward to using this set I love the sticker for the back of the envelope, and the washi tape included.

In all I'm very happy with my box defiantly was happy mail.

 

*Disclosure, I was sent this subscription box free to Review, no payment or anything has swayed my judgement. Honest and truthful

Cadbury Dairy Milk Oreo bar

''Tis the season for chocolate testing Easter eggs in the shops so when the opportunity came to try two new Oreo flavours,

Erm self-confessed chocoholic here yanno!

Anyway I was oh yes I'll try you twisted my arm ha!

Cadbury Dairy Milk Oreo

So here goes Cadbury Dairy Milk Oreo Peanut Butter flavour in honesty I liked it, but I couldn't eat a full bar as for me it was too much.

I asked Mr B to try, and he also said it was nice but a full bar would be to much, after asking KK she wasn't to fond.

Cadbury Dairy Milk Oreo Mint flavour I was excited about this taste I love mint that moment you open the packet back and get that mint smack in your face mmm.

After trying a strip I was very happy and had to stop myself from demolishing the full bar, it tasted very similar to aero bar, slightly disappointed that there wasn't that extra crunch in it, but it was still really liked by all three of us!

both bars come in 120g bars, for a RRP of £1.49 at most major supermarkets

* I was sent samples to test, all views and opinions are my own and I wasn't swayed in anyway
