Super Geek Heroes Review and Competition

My sons are partial to watching cartoons and so, when I told them that there was a new brood of characters on the way, they couldn't wait to give the show a gander. The animated series I'm talking about is Super Geek Heroes.

The Super Geek Heroes are a unique group of super-kids... with the tagline 'having fun in turn with a mission to learn!'. Their seven friendly ‘super-powers’ are derived from the three prime and four specific development areas of the Early Years Foundation Stage.

No More Worries For a Week or Two: Family Holiday Planning Advice

The family holiday is one of the ultimate activities that you can undertake together that should provide you with fun, laughter and plenty of happy memories. However, if you don’t plan everything out properly, then it may not turn out to be exactly how you imagined it to be. If you are careful in thinking about the details, you are much more likely to have the incredible break of which you always dreamed. To give you a helping hand, here are a few of the top concerns that you should think about when planning your family holiday.

Choose the Right Location
The first thing that you need to do is to actually choose the location itself. This will be determined by your budget and your family too. Research the types of area that you could visit thoroughly. If you have very young kids, long car journeys of plane rides may end up being out of the question. There are plenty of short-haul destinations that are out there which can provide you with everything that you are looking for.

Sort Out Your Accommodation

Depending on what your priorities are and how big your budget is, this will determine what sort of accommodation you choose to go for. You may be looking for a place where you can relax privately as a family. So, if you are planning a skiing holiday, this ideal option could be a chalet like Chalet Lapin Blanc. Hotels tend to leave you confined to a single room, and websites like Airbnb have made life a lot easier when it comes to finding private accommodation all over the world. 

Plan Out Your Activities
There is nothing worse than arriving at a destination, only to find that you have no idea what there is to do. Not only can this be frustrating for you, it can also end up being extremely maddening for your kids too! Find out what sort of attractions and activities are in the local area a good amount of time before you actually travel. You should also be looking bring along your own forms of entertainment such as board games so that you can make your own fun if the weather ends up not being too kind to you.

Pack Carefully

Rather than throwing everything in a suitcase at the last minute, it is worth making a detailed list so you can tick things off as you pack. This way, you can be prepared for every type of situation and you won’t end up being in a situation where you find yourself having to buy things while you are on holiday.

Don’t Forget to Budget
Many people come back from holiday and get a nasty shock when they look at their bank balance. While you want to relax and unwind on holiday, you should also make sure that you don’t end up suffering when you get back home again. There are plenty of ways that you can save money on holiday without reducing the amount of fun you have.

John Frieda Sheer Blonde Collection

My light blonde hair is one of my favourite parts of me. It's what I stood out for as a child, in a family full of brunettes, and I'd always have people saying how they'd love to have natural blonde hair like me. 

As I got older though, the colour dulled to a mucky blonde which I disliked. I love light blonde tones and so I started to colour my hair to ever so slightly lighten it . But as we all know, when colouring your hair, you come up with a heap of problems - brassiness, dry hair, yellowing - and so I thought it important to find a good quality shampoo to keep my hair healthy, even after colouring.

How Can Women Control Their Emotions To Tackle Binge Eating?

We easy feel strong emotions like joy, affection, anger, fear, sadness or guilt. Most of you might have noticed the impulse to eat during any of these emotions. This can be so strong and irresistible. Don’t feel bad about such eating behaviour as it is completely normal. The more intense the emotion the more intense may be the reaction.

If you use food in reaction to a feeling, then the strength of the response will be in line with the strength of the emotion e.g. extreme anger equals extreme binge eating. If you can relate to this then you know your reaction of strong feelings with strong desires to eat and would want to know how to overcome this behaviour.
