The Perfect Father’s Day Gift

Father’s Day is coming up, so I’m sure you are all out hunting for that little perfect gift. If you have dad’s that are anything like my dad they don’t want a lot, but they appreciate what little gift you do get them. So here is the perfect gift – A Sugru Starter Kit
When I was given a Sugru Starter Kit from Sugru to review I knew this would be the perfect Father’s Day Gift for those DIY home hacks.
The Starter Kit includes:
  • 5 single use packs of Sugru in 5 different colours.
  • A great little storage tin.
  • A little booklet full of project ideas and how-to guides.

So What is Sugru?
 
Sugru is a moldable glue that sticks to almost anything and turns into a strong flexible rubber overnight. It is made to stick to as many materials as possible forming a strong bond to aluminium, steel, ceramics, glass, wood and other materials including some plastics and rubbers.
Invented for people looking to repair and improve stuff, it’s used by people in over 160 countries. Handy for any number of small home improvement projects, Sugru’s durable cured properties mean it’ll stay strong and securely bonded anywhere from the freezer to a hot shower, from the garden to the great outdoors.
Sugru’s name derives from the Irish word for ‘play’ and is available in 10 different colors which can be blended to make any color you like. Sugru is available at a wide range of retailers as well as online at Sugru.com.
Home Hacks Made Easy - Sugru Starter Kit
I love the cute little practical tin that comes with the starter kit. Great for keeping your Sugru pieces in.

The handy guide that comes with the kit is fab! It’s a really great quality guide with loads of hints and tips of what where and when you can use the Sugru. I especially love the way the Sugru can be used to help cables work for longer. We have been through loads of cables where the wires break inside. The Sugru just helps protect the delicate ends.

So what’s a home hack then? It’s a kind of DIY that we’ve all be doing for years without even realising it. Often referred to as fixing, tweaking, tinkering or enhancing. It’s the perfect gift for anybody who loves a good idea.
Would your dad love a gift like this?

A Orsolya Hernold Guided Journal Review

Ever since I was a little girl I have always been interested in diaries and journals. I have kept one on and off most of my life. When I was about 10 I used to have one of those little journals with a lock and key. I think this was where my love of writing began. Now I use my blog as a sort of online diary/journal.
When I was given one of Orsolya Hernold Guided Journals to have a look at and review, I couldn’t say no.

Stick To Stigu Planner Review

Since the beginning of the year I have been looking for the perfect planner/diary. I’m quite fussy in what I want from a planner. It had to be perfect for me. I had heard about the Stick To Stigu planners from other bloggers and I really wanted to try one out to see if it’s the “one” for me. 
The kind people at Stick To Stigu gave one of their planners for a review. I know we are already 5 months into 2016 and so obviously those first pages of those months are not going to get used now, but that doesn’t matter. I’ve still got months left of use to get out of it. Besides there are still the useful activities to do when you read back over. 

I love the way Stick To Stigu describes their wonderfully wacky planner so I have had to include it for you to read!
So what is it? Essentially an annual planner, a to-do pad, a notebook but also a rest and zest handbook hosted by the character ‘Stigu’ and a couple of his friends who encourage new habits in a non-judgemental, non-preachy way that actually works. Stigu shows how, with humour and compassion, through no-nonsense tips, practices, provoking quotes and inspiring illustrations, that juggling a crazy life is possible, and a good plan (plus enough rest and zest for life) can help.”
The first page introduces you to Stigu and what’s included in the planner. If you have any feedback on how you think the planner could be improved, Stick To Stigu would love to hear your feedback for later editions.
I love the yearly planner at the front. Perfect for quickly jotting down dates and holidays. It’s good to see the year as a whole in front of you, when planning things.
This is an example of one of the activities I saying about earlier. A really cute and useful addition to the planner. They help you to be more active, mentally as well as physically. The little drawings are adorable!
Each month has activities on a different theme. The month for May is the “Ground” theme and next month it’s “Play”. The activities are fun! This week’s activity is called Waking up your feet!. I love the little facts  and quotes included on the daily diary pages.
I have had the planner now for a few weeks and in the photo below shows you how I m using my Stick To Stigu planner. I love to tick bits off when completed. It shows me that I have achieved something that day – hard when you have a young baby who constantly wants your attention!
Alongside each week there is a page for notes and weekly to-do lists. At the back of the planner is plenty of blank pages for extra notes and a 2017 yearly planner to jot down plns for next year.
I bought some really cool Reminder Stickers off Amazon that I just add where I see fit in the planner. There are all sorts of stickers for appointments, birthdays, housework, school holidays and dentist and doctor appointments as well as many others. You get 7 sheets of them in the pack.

You can find the Stigu Planner at SticktoStigu and follow them on Twitter
