Lalaloopsy glitter potty surprise

Published December 13, 2017 by Bizzimummy

Lalaloopsy is so cute, big button eyes and a cute baby face. And now comes a new baby Lalaloopsy who likes to poop.

This cute little baby comes dressed in just a nappy, she has a dummy and also her feeding bowl, spoon and her potty.

She also comes with 3 pots of magic food. Each pot a different glittery colour. This is actually a substance similar to kinectic sand. It looks like play doh from the outset but it’s much softer like sand and stays together.

The idea is that the doll gets spoon fed a small amount of the food and then sits on the potty and out it comes in all sorts of different shapes.

It actually sounds a rather revolting idea for a doll but kids seem to love stuff like this and things that involve the word poop, no idea why.

The food seems to stay in good reusable shape too and doesn’t seem to dry out much. It’s also mess free and can be reused over and over again.

Most toy stores are selling this Lalaloopsy set and it retails between £20 – £30.

Hubner Silicea capsules

Published December 13, 2017 by Bizzimummy

“Hubner´s Silicea capsules contain the trace element of pure natural silica. It works to support connective tissue, strengthening hair, skin and nails from the inside out. Silica occurs naturally in our bodies.It is best absorbed in the colloidal form.”

Silicon is a natural element that is found everywhere in nature. After the age of 20 the body begins to lose the ability to store silicon.

These supplement capsules contain the correct amounts of Silicon plus other ingredients to aid the growth of hair, skin and nails.

It is recommended to take one capsule per day in between meals with water. I have been taking the capsules myself for a few weeks now and the main place where I have seen improvement is my nails, they seem to be growing much faster than before as is my hair, which usually doesn’t seem to grow past a certain length.

A months supply of 30 capsules can be purchased from Healthy 2 U for £13.95.

Hersey & Son silversmiths

Published December 12, 2017 by Bizzimummy

There’s no better gift than a beautiful piece of jewellery, well not for us ladies anyway. A few days ago I received this stunning little piece from Hersey & son.

This is my Circle of life pendant. It costs £38.00 and comes with the option of added engraving.

It’s a really simple designed piece yet stung all the same. The necklace is made from sterling silver with the silver 925 stamp appearing near the clasp. Options of 16 and 18 inch are available.

It’s just so pretty. I’m sure this would bring a smile to the face of any lady on Christmas Day.

Winter wonderland 2017

Published December 11, 2017 by Bizzimummy

Winter Wonderland has once again opened its doors at Event City in Manchester. The event is packed full of family rides, shows, a circus, stalls and various places to eat. And of course a visit to Santa’s grotto is a must too. 


We went on Saturday for the 11am opening and although it was ram packed with people, we still had a really enjoyable time there.


The sessions are split into 4 hour time slots so you get a full 4 hours there per ticket. The queues looked huge but went down vertg quickly for us. Once in, all the rides and shows come included in the ticket price. Santa’s grotto visit is also included, but I paid extra for Izebellas gift and the photograph (which are quite expensive) I found the gift choice much better than last year; kids pick their own gift from Santa toy shop.


This year we actually got to see the circus show, which we missed on previous years. I’m so glad we did because some of the acts are really spectacular.


There are a few other shows to see too including rainbow and Frozen. 

There are so many rides to go on. The queues were not so bad. There are rides to suit most ages from tots to adults. 


The food is expensive but lots of choice. For larger families and groups it may be best to take own lunch. 

Winter wonderland is open until January 1st but sessions are selling out fast. Tickets start at £20.50. Winter wonderland.

Degustabox November 

Published December 8, 2017 by Bizzimummy

Ho ho ho t’s nearly Christmas and my latest Degustabox contains a few festive themed treats.  


 We have this bag of Planters fruity chocolate crunch. It’s a big bag and a mixture of peanuts, cranberries and chocolate buttons which went down a treat.


Ooh and look what we have here! Lots of yummy treats. 


Cadbury picnic bites – just like the big bar version but smaller bite size chunks and just as delicious. 
Proper corn popcorn – perfectly sweet flavour and great with a movie.

Jellybean factory super sours – These really tickle the tastebuds. I’m not a huge fan of jelly beans but my kids are. 



Two drinks in this months box, one of them I could not wait to open and drink, the other I’m not so keen on. 


Dalston’s fizzy apple was just lovely. This one bottle is packed full of crushed apples. It’s sweet and so refreshing.

Alo – is an aloe Vera drink and I wasn’t so keen. 


A few cupboard staples in this box too – Ryvita & Flippo Berio, both snack products rye cakes and a savoury Italian biscuit type snack.
English provender caramelised onion chutney – I’ve not opened this yet. It will be opened Christmas Day with the turkey. 
Taylor’s of Harrogate single origin coffee – this is a really impressive find considering it costs  £4.49 which is over a third of the total box cost. 

Kallo – stock pots. Another one for Christmas Day and gravy. 



Oh and more tuna too – 

Rio Mare tuna in olive oil. It’s a nice strong flavoured tuna with big chunks. It does cost £3.00 per tin tho. 


 And finally one for the breakfast table – Weetabix Additions Apple and raisin. Traditional weetabix chunks with fruit. I gave some to a friend to try and she absolutely loved them. 
And wow all this for just £12.99 including delivery. It’s unbelievable value and my favourite snack subscription box too.

Get yours at Degustabox UK for an amazing discount price of just £5.99.

Robinson’s fruit creations

Published December 7, 2017 by Bizzimummy

Robinson’s recently launched two brand new ranges, Fruit Creations and Fruit Cordials. The new offerings for Robinsons are both new squashes aimed more at grown ups.

 

Robinsons new Fruit Cordial was created to offer a sophisticated twist to squash through combinations of real fruit and botanicals flavours. Contained in a glass bottle the cordial is a new more concentrated way to bring a burst of Robinsons’ flavour to the dinner table.

 Robinsons Fruit Creations which contains twice the fruit and more natural and fruitier flavours. As well as containing exciting new flavours, the Creations range also features five Robinsons core flavours that have been reformulated and given a fruity boost.

 We were sent over a bottle of the new fruit creations in a delicious apple and elderflower flavour. This certainly has a very unique taste compared to previous Robinson’s cordial drinks. 

It even arrived in its own presentation box making it look very much for us grown ups only, although not surprisingly my kids have already helped themselves to drinks of this.

These new cordials should be appearing in UK supermarkets very soon if they haven’t already.

Gifts for teens & big boys from Find me a Gift

Published December 7, 2017 by Bizzimummy

Don’t you just love the novelty fun Christmas gifts, the ones that bring back memories from years gone by or perhaps something so silly but we can’t help but love it? Well Find me a Gift is full of those type of gift ideas.

We all know that teens and some of us grown up kids at heart love the retro gadgets. Well how about one of these in the stocking for just £12.99.

This being a plug and play retro TV game console. Yes it’s a console, it’s tiny and all I needed to do was plug it in. You do need a television with the correct connectors or an adaptor if it doesn’t have one .

For £12.99 I wasn’t expecting much at all, definitely nothing like the PS4 and Xbox of today. It does beat a few similarities to the old Atari system.

The main interface certainly resembles the old consoles of the 1980s, very basic and in menu form like the above. There are 200 games on this tiny system, some of them can be quite temperamental, again just like the old consoles.

This game here looks quite familiar!

Playing the games is done by the console. The plug in lead isn’t huge so it does mean sitting close to the screen to play (no witless here). I don’t think it would be much of a hit with teens as they all prefer the much faster consoles of today. I would say it’s more for the big boys, Dads, granddads who want to relive their memories of old style gaming.

I think this next product is perhaps much more suited to a teenager.

Keeping with the whole retro and gaming theme. This is of course a Tetris light based on the old highly addictive Tetris game. I’d spend ages dropping blocks, trying to get to higher levels back in the day.

The light comes as seven individual coloured plastic blocks. They can be built up in multiple ways to make different patterns. The blue block is the base block providing the main charge to the rest. It comes with a mains adaptor.

It’s quite impressive at how the light works. Only one block is connected to the mains, yet when other coloured blocks are built up, each one of them also lights up. Then as each block is removed, the light instantly goes off.

The one negative I have is that the light is very light and easily knocked over. It’s also tempting to play with it and constantly rearrange the lights. Tetris light costs £22.99.

Forest feast Christmas collection

Published December 6, 2017 by Bizzimummy

Forest feast are home to tasty fruit and nut snacks and have recently launched a festive collection in time for Christmas.

These festive snack packs combine blends of both sweet and savoury ingredients together such as nuts, dried fruits and even bits of chocolate. These make lovely Xmas day nibbles for all the family.

If I’m being totally honest, I’m not usually a big lover of nuts or dried fruits, but I do make an exception around Christmas and these do taste incredibly good. The vanilla cashew, cranberry, chocolate, fruit and nut went down a treat. I would usually expect a mix like this to contain some sort of dried fruit that I don’t like such as raisins, currants, dates etc but no, it contained dried cranberries which are one of the very few dried fruits I actually like.

There are four festive varieties to choose from and each one costs £3.50 per bag.
