Here we are at the end of another month. November has been short and sweet. Lots of walks in the woods, kicking about in the muddy puddles and leaves. At the start of the month, we took baby girl for her nasal flu shot, I was surprised she took it like a little trooper. It just goes to show she’s growing up. Here is what we have enjoyed in November.
I managed to survive single parenting when my husband went away for a few days with work. We ate pizza, played and watched TV!
On the blogging side of things, I got all my Christmas gift guides up and running, Adults, Kids (3-8 years), Baby’s and Stationery Lovers. I’ve been working hard on Pinterest this month, it was one platform While working on Pinterest and getting some help sorting it out I’ve realised that some people are not who they appear to be. Talk the talk etc but with the following through was not what I expected it to be. Obviously their professionalism has a lot to be desired.
Anyway moving on to the products we have been trying out and enjoyed in November. Starting off with a gorgeous bottle of whisky. Now I’m not a big drinker and not drinking at all at the moment as I’m still breastfeeding. But being sent such a beautiful bottle, I thought what can I do with it after featuring it here. It’s too beautiful to go to waste. So I decided, along with some other of my Christmas Gift Guide items to donate them to my husbands work’s raffle with all proceeds going towards the Cornwall Air Ambulance. Down here in Cornwall, we only have one main hospital with an A&E, so the Air Ambulance is vitally important on saving time getting people to hospital.
Limited Edition Swedish Single Malt Whisky
Meaning ‘Gold from the Mine’, Gruvguld is a wonderfully smooth Swedish Single Malt Whisky, aged in a variety of small casks, including Olorosso, Bourbon, Sherry and Swedish oak, 50m below ground in the Bodås mine. This single malt whisky arrived from The Summerton Club. A craft spirits members club that curates and delivers only the finest aged alcohol from around the world (brandies, rums, whiskies and more) directly to your door. Why not give this gift to a loved one for Christmas?
Fruit Express and Fruit Fusions From Del Monte
I’ve always loved tinned fruit. When we were kids I remember mum and dad giving us tinned fruit and custard for afters. Del Monte was a firm favourite back then. When we were given a few samples of the new Fruit Express and Fruit Fusions to try, I thought they would make a quick snack while on the go. The fruit fusions were delicious and very refreshing. I love Elderflower so I made sure I slurped it down after I scoffed the peaches and pears! The other one I tried – Gold Pineapple in Green Tea, was very sweet and refreshing. They are all available in Tesco to buy.
Stainless Steel Leak Proof Flask
I’m always on the look out for reusable bottles and flasks, and this is big right now with the ongoing battle with single use plastics on the environment. This great little flask is the perfect size for kids and their lunch boxes. It comes in many colours and can be found here to buy at Leakproof. One great feature is that it keeps drinks hot for up to 12 hours, or keeps water chilly cold for up to 24 hours.
Extra Large Personalised Puppy Soft Toy
Who doesn’t love a cuddly soft toy? Well this little beauty is an enormous cute puppy that can be personalised for who ever you wish. He stands at 50 cm tall and can have the message of your choosing on his t-shirt. You can choose the font colour and even have a photo on it as well! I think he would make an adorable gift for any one. The puppy is suitable from birth, so could make a lovely gift for a newborn. If you are stuck for a gift why not give a puppy soft toy a home? Available from The Gift Experience. I love the softness of the pup, he is perfect for my 7 month old to touch and laugh at!!
Boots Mini Club Clothes
We were sent some Christmas clothes to try on from the mini club range. The Red Christmas Joy Jumper baby girl is wearing is £13.00. It’s a lovely chunky thick knit jumper. The age she is wearing is 4-5 years but the whole mini club range is from 0-6 years. Baby dottie is wearing the Mr Santa outfit in 9-12 months £16.00 I love the little hat!
I always thought I would never dress them matching, as I was with my younger when we were kids and I didn’t like it, but it’s so adorable I couldn’t resist getting them the matching pyjamas. These are from the mini club range as well. The Christmas Fairy Pyjama £12.00. I adore the heart print bottoms.
Trying to get these two little monkeys to stay still for these photos was hard work!
So there you have it, another month gone by, next month is such an exciting month. Baby girl is nearly 3 and is starting to understand what Christmas is all about. We are popping to post our letter to Father Christmas today!
