Win | Heat Holders Snuggle Ups Blanket


I love this time of year as it seems to be when everything seems to cheer up. The clocks have gone forward and so the days are longer and the children can play out longer into the evening. We are slowly edging towards summer, towards picnics, strolls on the beach, camping and relaxing in the garden. 

And so, to make sure you have somewhere comfy, cosy and convenient to sit this summer, Heat Holders bring their Snuggle Ups blanket to the table. 

The Heat Holders Snuggle Ups Blanket is the perfect choice for any outdoor trip or adventure this summer, offering enough room to lounge on during the day with the added benefit of being reliably warm; great for when the temperature dips after sunset (we are in Britain after all!).


The blanket is very generous at 180cm X 200cm in size and can creates a decant seating area for a family at a picnic. And it doesn't matter if someone drops the food as Heat Holders Snuggle Ups Blankets are machine washable, so whether you’re dealing with spillage-prone toddlers, or care-free grown-ups, you won’t have any laundry stress.

Win | Eisberg Alcohol Free Wine Range

It's safe to say that I'm not a big drinker. I rarely drink, and when I do, I like to drink low alcohol beverages as I'm not the type of person that finds alcohol fun. Eisberg are an alcohol-free wine producer with a range of wines to choose from. 

The wine is actually made the same way as standard wine and the alcohol is then removed at the end of the process. It's perfect for mums like me who, likes the taste of wine, but doesn't want the hangover to go with it. It's also great for designated drivers, mums-to-be or new mums that can't drink.

Having less calories than a green apple, it is also ideal for those keeping an eye on their diet. This is another plus for me as I am currently trying to cut down my calorie intake, but would normally drink fizzy pop if friends came round. At least this way, I have a nice glass of Eisberg wine in hand, and no horrible feelings as it isn't alcoholic.


Eisberg currently has a range of four wine alternatives to choose from; 

Chardonnay
This is a fruity white wine with soft vanilla aromas and crisp apple flavours and a hint of honey on the finish. Try with Chicken and salad dishes.

Cabernet Sauvignon 
A rich, red wine with deep ruby colour and aromas of cherries and plums with only only 26 calories in a 125ml glass. Works well with lamb or beef. Both the Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay have only 26 calories per 125ml glass.

Rosé
A refreshingly juicy rosé with succulent aromas of ripe strawberries and a hint of cherries. Has only 33 calories per glass and would work well with your favourite spicy foods or fresh salads.

Sauvignon Blanc
This fresh and aromatic Sauvignon Blanc is new to the range and is brimming with classic gooseberry and tropical fruit flavours. Working perfectly with shellfish and salads and has only 28 calories in a 125ml glass.

And so, if you would like to win the whole range of Eisberg alcohol free wines, then enter via the Rafflecopter form below.

Safety Outdoors | What's In Your Handbag?


I've never thought about the worth of items that I carry in my bag before. I mean, I don't carry much around with me and I'm ever so cautious, who wants to pinch a couple of nappies and a half eaten KitKat anyway?

So it's safe to say, when I read that the average contents of a women's handbag contents was an average of £512 – with some women totalling an overwhelming £3,144, I was shocked. Who would be carrying all that worth around with them? 

According to national statistics, around a fifth of all women in the UK have experienced handbag theft. It’s not all about the value of the bags contents you need to worry about though as identity fraud is an issue with many people carrying around identification documents such as a driving licence or a passport as well as credit and bank cards.

The Hypocrisies of Being a Parent

When you get that first glimpse of your baby, that's it, life is perfect. In that moment, there is nothing better. You will do everything you possibly can to make sure your baby gets everything they need. And you will do everything in your power to make sure you are doing the best for your child. 

But then that moments passes, and people wade in. Then it becomes a constant battle of 'this is better', 'that is better', 'oh, you shouldn't be doing that', 'you're creating a rod for your own back'. Yeah, that!

And no matter what you do, someone will disagree with how you parent, what you choose for your baby and anything that you do, because, well, some people just like being judgemental. So today, I thought I'd write about the hypocrisies of being a parent. Those times when you can't do right for doing wrong...
