Happy Jones Families Game Review

When I was given the chance to review a family game I really couldn’t say no. We love to play games especially card games  so this Happy Families game from Go For It Games  includes the Go Fish gme as well seemed perfect.
Now I have an unusual surname and so was unable to get the game for my family name. It was pot luck which name I would get out of the list of the most popular 24 surnames and so I ended up with Jones!
Perfect!
I know a couple of Jones’s so will be fun teasing them with some facts I now know while I played the game about their surname.
The games have been redesigned especially for people with these surnames.
I love this idea – a personalised game. Great for kids to learn the origins and facts of their surname.
“Go For It Games are a small family enterprise specialising in really good little games and produce them in small quantities. Current ranges include card games for a special birthday milestone, games based on popular first names, and of course this one – popular surnames”

Using Sudocrem Care and Protect – Product Review

When baby girl was born we were given loads of different advice on what to use on her little bum to prevent nappy rash. I was very happy a couple of weeks ago when I was sent a tube of Sudocrem’s Care & Protect cream to try. I always keep an open mind when reviewing products. Before this we tried a few different creams and lotions to see which was the best.

Sudocrem Care and Protect

My mum always says the original grey tub of Sudocrem is the best. To be honest she is right. That was what we were using before being sent the Care and Protect. Unlike the original Sudocrem, Care & Protect is lighter and not so thick to use. A small tube will go a long way. 
It is perfect for everyday use as well as its very gentle. It makes baby girl’s skin very soft. It’s also hypoallergenic and has been dermatologically tested, and is also free from artificial colours and preservatives. 
Sudocrem Care & Protect is a nappy rash ointment, designed specifically for babies. It offers triple protection against getting nappy rash at each change.
1. Creating a protective barrier that seals in the skin’s natural moisture and protects even the most delicate skin against external irritants.
2. Conditioning the skin – Vitamin E and Pro Vitamin B5 helps to protect the skin and keep it soft, healthy and moisturised.
3. Guarding against infection – It acts as a barrier to protect delicate skin from the chemicals in urine and poo, and from chafing and rubbing.

Sudocrem Care and Protect

Sudocrem Care & Protect also won Product of the Year 2015 in the category of ‘Best Nappy Cream’.
What cream/lotion do you use on your baby’s bum? Have you tried Care & Protect?

Word of the Week – Planning 29/04/2016

Here we are again! It’s Friday! Happy Friday! I hope you all have that Friday feeling especially as it’s a bank holiday weekend! I know I’ve got the Friday feeling as it means we get 3 whole days of family time. We don’t plan on doing too much this weekend – I really need to do some housework though! My husband deserves a relaxing weekend as he’s had a tiresome week. 
On Wednesday he had to drive to Bristol for an all day meeting, which if you live in Cornwall that means a 3 hour drive there and back the same day. Plus he still had to get up at 5:20am the next day for work again. It’s hard for him with an 11 week old baby as well that wakes up for her dream feeds at 4am. So I plan on giving him a nice chilled out weekend where he can sit and watch the Russian Grand Prix on Sunday afternoon. 
So now that it’s the end of another week it’s time to find one word that sums up the week I’ve had. 
This weeks word of the week is Planning
Word of the Week - Planning 29/04/2016

This week has been a big planning week for me, that’s why I’m using it as my Word of the Week. 
I have been planning lots of different blog posts. From book reviews, to a fashion post and of course a few baby posts thrown in. 
In terms of my blog for planning, this week has been my biggest week yet for being contacted by brands for reviews. I have had quite a few, so I’ve been a busy bee planning what to post where and when. I’m so excited!!! 
Another thing I’ve been planning for is to take up the blogging everyday in May challenge run by rosalilium. There is a calender on her link up which you can use for topics each day to write about, or you can use your own. I will most likely be using my own topics unless I get stuck! 
I took up blogging everyday (#BEDM) in May last year and only managed to miss two posts! This year I want to complete it! 
I’m fairly confident I can achieve this, as this month I’ve only missed a couple of days of blogging and I’m sure good planning will see me through. 
Onto a bit of personal planning. My husband and I have have also decided in 6 years time to have the holiday of a lifetime at Disneyland, Florida. It will be for his 40th and baby girls 6th birthdays. We decided to start planning how much we can save and put it in a separate little account. I know if we don’t start saving a bit each month we will get stuck when the time comes. The thing is, we are also planning on moving in those years between as well, that’s why we decided we needed a separate holiday fund pot. I love to plan ahead for things! 
I hope you have all had a good week. 
Have a great bank holiday weekend and hopefully the weather will be nice!
