Review | The Mozy- An Outdoors Wrap With A Difference

*Paid Collaboration

You may have realised by now that we are a very outdoorsy family. We love exploring new places, going on long walks and being close to nature. What you may not have realised about me is that I cannot stand being cold. In fact, once my body gets too cold I find it hard to warm up and that can often put a dampener on a day out. So, on those chillier days good clothing, a warm jacket and a blanket are often taken out with us especially if we are sitting somewhere for a picnic or on the beach. However, a blanket doesn’t really do a great job. With gaps around the underneath of you, the constant re-aligning of it due to the kids jumping on you and the lack of consistent warmth, sometimes it just doesn’t seem worth it and I thought I was just destined to forever be moaning that I am cold. But then Get The Mozy contacted me… Continue reading “Review | The Mozy- An Outdoors Wrap With A Difference”

Review | WUKA Period Swim Bikini Brief

*Gifted Product

Swimming whilst on your period can be a bit of a pain. Exercise is such a great way of banishing those menstrual cramps but for some, the thought of getting into a pool during this time of the month can be daunting. You want to feel completely protected, you want to be comfortable and you want a product that will work with you not against you. In the past, tampons have been my go-to for swimming but since embarking on my eco journey, I haven’t wanted to use them. Continue reading “Review | WUKA Period Swim Bikini Brief”

Review | WUKA Period Pants

*Previously gifted product

Having a comfortable period is something that is at the top of every woman’s list. We all know that ‘that time of the month’ can bring PMS symptoms, aches, migraines, cramps and so on so the last thing anybody wants is to feel a bit yucky down below. Having used disposable menstrual products over many, many years (because I had no idea that reusables existed!) I know firsthand how disposable pads can make your periods heavier, how they can be smelly, can make your sweat, can move and lead to leaks and how the costs mount up. Thankfully, there are so many options available to us today Continue reading “Review | WUKA Period Pants”

Review | Protecting Your Home With SimpliSafe

*Gifted Product

Over the last few years, we have considered getting a security system on several occasions. With the rise in footfall in our street, with us living on a corner, having a young family and hearing reports of crime being on the rise, we started to wonder what the best method would be in order to feel safer. There are so many options available and a lot seemed to be a bit complicated with a lot of professional installation required which isn’t something we really wanted to do as we aren’t sure how long we will be here anyway. So, when SimpliSafe got in touch to ask us to review their very easy to use home security system I was eager to find out more. Continue reading “Review | Protecting Your Home With SimpliSafe”

reusable water balloons review written over a photo of 4 water balloons and a child's hand grabbing one

Reusable Water Balloons Review

Many years ago, before I fully realised the impact we were having on the environment with our disposable lifestyles, we would buy Jake those cheap single-use water balloons that went onto a hose. After several uses, I came to realise that a.) they were a complete waste of money and b.) that it was impossible to pick up every tiny piece that had broken away and I was left finding them in flower beds, in the grass etc for months afterwards. I very quickly put a stop to us purchasing them Continue reading “Reusable Water Balloons Review”

I’ve been a fan of The Clever Cactus for a while now and have previously purchased several items from her online store including baby wipes and reusable water balloons.

This is the first of my reviews for her and we have kick-started our collaboration with me trying out her CSP (cloth sanitary pads) and liners range.

Review | Lazy Bear Lance Navy Backpack From TrendHim

*Gifted Product

One of the most important aspects for an on the go, outdoorsy family like us is ensuring that we always have everything we need. That unfortunately usually results in us taking 2 or 3 different sized bags out with us each time due to the fact that we don’t a bag that can hold it all. This has been such a hassle because, as we all know, once you are out with kids you need to have easy access to items like spare clothes, nappies, wipes and snacks at all times and fiddling around with a variety of bags just doesn’t cut it. Thankfully, TrendHim have a fantastic range of men’s accessories, including a wide selection of bags. They contacted us to ask if we would like to review an item from their website and we opted for a Lazy Bear Lance Navy Backpack.
