Review: Children's Cot Bed Silk Duvet From Silk Bedding Direct

There is nothing better on a cold Winter's evening then getting into a nice cosy bed. I always like to have a good quality duvet and bedding as as well as the feeling of the material they always last so much longer. So I was intrigued when I saw that silk bedding direct sold silk duvets for children. We were sent a cot bed silk-filled duvet from to review and I am really impressed with the quality of it and how luxurious and soft it feels.

The duvet itself came in a lovely storage bag and you can instantly tell that silk bedding direct only sell top quality duvets. The cot bed duvet is made from 100% natural high grade long strand Mulberry silk. Every parent wants their child to have a great nights sleep and the silks natural relaxing and therapeutic properties help your child drift off into a comfortable and restful nights sleep. Silk Bedding Direct use only 100% natural mulberry silk, no chemicals or anything else are added or used in the production process, thereby maintaining all of silk's natural restful healing properties. Again as a parent you want everything you use to be as pure as possible and chemical free so these duvets really tick all the boxes.

Oscar has also been using the duvet after school to snuggle up on the sofa with to watch a DVD. Another great thing about this duvet is that we have the Medium fill which is for Spring/Autumn and the duvet itself has clips on it so if I needed it to be thicker in the Winter go can just buy a light fill duvet and clip them together. The duvet is lovely and Oscar thinks it is really comfy! There is also a small zip where you can feel inside the duvet and the silk is so unbelievably soft. I might have to invest in one for our bed!

Silk Bedding Direct also have a Winter sale on at the moment and many of their duvets are half price. You can get a super king size Mulberry silk filled duvet for only £169 instead of £299. Although they might seem a bit expensive you really can't put a price on your children getting a good nights sleep and I think they are well worth the money. With all the duvets you can pick from light, medium or deep fill so you have the perfect duvet for the warmer or colder weather. As well as being the most comfortable type of bedding, silk bedding has so many health benefits too as well as delaying skin ageing and nourishes your hair. It can help many health conditions and also prevent some too:

MCS (Multiple Chemic
al Sensitivities)
Eczema and dry or itchy skin
Skin inflammations (psoriasis)
Burns (particularly 1st and 2nd degree)
Post-chemotherapy sensitive skin
Vascular sclerosis

Review: Tommee Tippee Sangenic Nappy Bin

When Oscar was a baby we had the Tommee Tippee nursery essentials tub and to be honest it was one of the most used baby products we brought. It was fantastic so when we were asked to review the Sangenic Nappy Disposal system I was thrilled as this was something to was on my shopping list to buy.

The Sangenic Nappy Disposal System is a such a simple and easy to use product. You simply pop the refill cassette in the top if the bin and it is ready to be used. After you have changed your baby's nappy you place it into the nappy bin, push the lid down so the plunger pushes the nappy deep inside the bin then twist the handle to individually wrap each nappy in the antibacterial film which kills 99% of all germs on contact and locks in all odours. The bin can hold up to 28 nappies which saves so much time. Instead of using individual nappy sacks and having to take them out to the bin every time you change a nappy you only empty the bin once it is full. I found this great when we had Oscar as our dustbins never smelt and I just emptied the bin when needed and took them straight to the dump. After emptying being plastic the bin is really easy to spray and keep clean.

With Archie being only five weeks old I had completely forgotten just how many nappies you get through in a week! The Sangenic nappy bin is one of my must have products and it really does what it says on the tin. There are no odours at all, it really does eliminate the awful smell of a dirty nappy. The bins are now available in pink or blue as well which is exclusive to Mothercare.

New. Black Perfect Prep Machine.

The Sangenic bin retails at around £24.99 and the refills are £14.99 for a box of three cassettes. For any pregnant or new mum's I would really recommend one of these as it's one of those products that truly save you time from either having to go to the bin every time you change a nappy or having to clean out your dustbins from the stench of keeping dirty nappies in them.

Review: Bakerdays Valentines Letterbox Gift Cake

I have reviewed a Bakerdays letterbox cake before back in December 2013, which you can see HERE and really liked the concept and how the cake looked and tasted so was looking forward to receiving one of their Valentines Letterbox cakes to review.

Bakerdays sell personalised cakes for all occasions in four different sizes with prices ranging from £14.99 to £56.99. You can choose to make a personalised cake, a photo cake or cupcakes. The letterbox cakes at only £14.99 would make the perfect surprise gift to send someone this Valentines Day. There are loads of designs to choose from and you can pick either chocolate chip sponge, normal sponge, fruit cake, gluten wheat free cake or dairy free cake. I chose the chocolate chip sponge in the 'Darling Valentine' design.

Your personalised letterbox cake is delivered with the normal post, so you don't have to wait in for it and Bakerdays deliver seven days a week and if you order by 2pm your cake will be delivered the very next day. Our cake arrived in a sweet tin with a gift card and I gave it to Greg as an early Valentines treat. Between Greg, Oscar and I the cake only lasted a few days but if your not piggy's like us don't worry the cakes stay fresh for up to 14 days.

Send someone a extra special treat with Bakerdays this Valentines Day.

Review: The Weekend Box Club Plus Order Your First Box For Free

The Weekend Box Club is a fortnightly activity box for children aged 3-6 delivered straight to your door ready for the weekend. Every box you would receive would be different with a wide range of fun activities. Each box has a theme and contains four activities to do with your children. Weekend Box was started when in 2013 the founder was looking at gift ideas for his niece and nephew. He wanted to find something fun yet educational but couldn't find exactly what he was looking for so The Weekend Box Club was born.

 Our box last weekend had the theme of Chinese New Year. On the instruction sheets there are useful facts about Chinese New Year to help your child understand and learn all about it. Our four activities were making a Chinese Dragon, Chinese lanterns, fortune cookies and a paper plate drum. Each activity sheet comes with a colour coded paper bag containing everything you need to make your creations. The only activity that is different is the cooking one and you will receive an email with the ingredients you will need prior to your box arriving.

On Saturday Oscar and I opened his Weekend Box and made the Chinese Dragon and the paper plate drum. He really enjoyed making them and is taking them in for show and tell this week to show his class. Oscar loves helping in the kitchen and making the Fortune cookies was quick and easy and they tasted really nice. When we had finished making his dragon, lantern and paper plate drum he was really proud of what he had made. The instruction cards are really simple so I was able to read them to him and he nearly completed the tasks on his own. On the cards there is also a talking point where you can discuss with your child about the activities which in turn encourages learning and development. He is really interested in the Chinese New Year theme and I had to show him videos of people doing the Dragon dances. 

The Weekend Boxes are really good and are a fun way of getting your child to do educational activities over the weekend. If you would like to try a box for yourself click HERE and enter LAURA12 to get a free box. I hope you enjoy the box as much as we did!
