Nail-A-Peel Deluxe Colour Kit Review and Giveaway

Yesterday I reviewed the Gel-A-Peel Colour Change Kit, now today I’m back with the Nail-a-Peel Deluxe Colour Kit. This kit brings a whole new meaning to 3D nail art. Nail-a-Peel is the coolest, craftiest product promising sparkle, glitter and amazing colours. Nail-a-Peel offers fans a new way to paint and create their nails by designing in 3D, taking the in-home mani/pedi experience to a whole new level.

As with yesterday’s Gel-A-Peel you also have the chance to win a Deluxe Nail-A-Peel kit as well at the bottom of this post. But first here is what’s included in the kit and what I thought about it.

Encouraging My Little Adventurer With The Play More Campaign

When I was a young child you would always find me outside, wind, rain or shine. Baby girl is exactly the same. She loves to get out in the garden as soon as she’s had her breakfast. She doesn’t come in properly then until tea time. I mean she pop’s in now and again to see what I’m up to. Or to catch me having a sneaky biscuit, but mainly she spends her day in the garden.

Encouraging My Little Adventurer With The Play More Campaign

With her being an outdoorsy girl I love to find her things to do outside. She has the usual slide, sandpit, water table, Little Tikes car, but I like to find her other educational things to do. She enjoys gardening with me, and looking after the chickens. So when Sudocrem got in touch to let us know about their Play More campaign with Chris Packham I knew this would be an excellent activity for my little adventurer.

Unique Hobbies for Your Children to Discover in 2018

It’s safe to say that we spend lots of time using various forms of technology, but that’s no excuse for kids not to embrace the outdoors on a regular basis and get plenty of exercise. In this post, we’ll take a look at a few unique hobbies — from outdoor paintball to hiking trips — that can make sure your children stay active this year.

In the digital age, we benefit significantly from the continual evolution of modern technology. While this is definitely a huge advantage for many aspects of everyday life and business, it has also made it a lot easier for the current generation to slip into lazy habits.

These days, children spend less time outside than ever before. In fact, a survey in 2016 showed that three-quarters of UK children spend less time outdoors than prison inmates.

Kids Love Flying Toss Out the Kite and Get a Drone

Flying kites is fun, especially if you make one from scratch with your kids. This can help teach the principles of flight. It is interesting that the history of kite flying traces back to eastern China, and that the latest technological advancements in drone flight are coming from China as well. However, the first consumer drone that came to market was from Parrot, a French company, that was brought to market in 2010. Yes, kite flying is fun, but flying a drone with a camera is phenomenal fun for kids.

Choosing a Kid-Friendly Drone

 

The FAA rules are that any drone 8.8 ounces or heavier must be registered, and it must be flown according to FAA rules. This includes always having your drone within your visual line of sight and using a spotter if you are using FPV (first-person view) goggles. If you want to bypass all FAA rules, then get a drone under 8.8 ounces or only fly indoors where no FAA rules apply. This way, your kid cannot inadvertently be in violation of any federal flight rules. However, if your kid is the responsible type, all drones that you own that require it can be registered directly with the FAA for one fee of $5.00.
