Published August 11, 2017 by Bizzimummy

To finish off the week, I have a lovely giveaway for all my lovely readers. 


We may only be in August but I bet those diaries are staring to look full and worn. Not everyone keeps a diary, I do; but if you don’t then they also make lovely Christmas gifts if your stuck for ideas as the majority (including this one) begin right after Christmas of course.

This one is a little bit more special than most. It’s designed for mums like me and is also a recipe diary meaning there is a recipe on virtually every page, or every diary week. 


The recipes are a mixture of sweet and savoury dishes to suit the season, complete with full instructions and approximate cooking times. 

As well as recipes, the diary also contains some really useful kitchen information, including weight conversions, cooking times and time saving tips.


There are pages for contacts, notes and even Christmas lists too.

It is an A5 size diary which is small enough to fit inside most standard handbags and comes with a lovely gold teal cover with ribbon, date stickers and pen loop for just £10.99.

I have the same diary to offer as a prize to one of my followers. This diary is the 2018 edition beginning January 1st 2018 worth £10.99. If you would like the chance to win this diary then click the entry link button below.

Little Known Box review & giveaway

Published July 31, 2017 by Bizzimummy

This here is my Little Known Box. I'm guessing it's named that because the contents are unknown until opened. The box really is a mystery which I could not wait to open. A pretty wrapped black box of mystery indeed.

So what is the Little Known Box? Well it is of course a subscription box (yes yet another one I hear you cry!) This is one of those very nice subscription boxes as it contains a few little treats for ladies and mummy's like myself.

Inside this months box, I had five beauty items. None of which I had previously come across before and all of which I was very pleased with. I do love my beauty treats and my subscriptions, so combine them both and it's always a winner for me.

This box costs £14.95 monthly and the cost of the products will always be more than the box charge. When you sign up for the boxes, the form asks for information to tailor the boxes to yourself such as asking skin types and preference on products. There will be 5/6 products in each box.

In my box – I got a Zerrea foam shampoo, Merck handy face mist, Merumaya youth preservation moisturiser, Odylique lip liner & Cougar beauty 24 hour lipstick.

The lip liner alone cost £12.50 so the contents are certainly worth it. The products were all full size apart from the moisturise which is a travel size product (great for handbags) but there are no small samples here.

It's a lovely box for ladies everywhere and any age.

GIVEAWAY

Little Known Box are giving away a fabulous prize. The prize on offer today is a box of mixed beauty items to the value of £75. These will be a mixture of products from previous boxes and it sounds an amazing prize to win.

If you want to take part in this giveaway then just click the link below. Winner must be a UK resident. The giveaway will close on 21/08/2017

Little Brian paint sticks & Giveaway!

Published June 29, 2017 by Bizzimummy

There’s a whole new way to draw and colour for kids. Paint sticks look just like coloured glue sticks and are like a crayon and paint all in one. 

This may sound harsh but I am one of those mean mummies who won’t have lots of paint activities in my house. I may allow it once in a while and for homework purposes, other than that if they want to paint then they go outside. My house is not huge and I paid a lot for my carpets and furniture and even kids clothing. Paint can be so messy, even the water based stuff. Stains on floors, tables, clothes which does not always wash out, then letting the soggy paintings dry out and more stains. Then cleaning the equipment and yes more stains on the sink. It’s a very messy activity which kids seem to love.


Our new Little Brian paint sticks seem to eliminate the majority of the mess left by regular painting and also make painting activities much easier for little hands. 

The packs of paint sticks come in various sizes and we have a rather generous 12 pack. 

The results from the paint sticks do look like paint and it dries instantly too. Very minimal mess on hands and none on furnishings. Obviously I still make my kids use a hard flat surface underneath paper to protect flooring underneath. The paintsticks can be used on many surfaces too, including paper, plastics, glass including windows as it’s really easy to sponge off clean. 


When doing regular paintings such as on paper or an easel, adding a little water to the painting with a brush or sponge gives a blurring effect and slightly wetting the paint stick gives a deeper paint effect so we can play around with these to get different effects.


My two girls liked them instantly and ended up painting non stop the same night they got them. I very much like the reduced mess and not needing to find paintbrushes or having paint mixed up into awful muggy colours. 

And guess what? these paint sticks also have another really good use. Probably not what they were intended for; but:  I recently glossed my bathroom window ledge in bright red to match the wallpaper. The flossing went well but I put a orchid pot on the window thinking  the paint had dried properly. It hadn’t and I ended up taking a small patch of gloss paint off, revealing white patches underneath. I had no paint left. I used the red paint stick to fill in the gaps and now I cannot tell any difference. It blended in perfectly and has dried to match the gloss. Therefore they have many uses.

Little Brian have their own website but sell their paint sticks via Amazon and Asda stores plus a few more places. A 12 pack like this costs about £7.25 with a 6 pack being less. They will last a long time too.

GIVEAWAY 

If you like the look of the paint sticks then you can win a 12 pack for yourself and family. Simply click the enter link below.

This giveaway will close on July 20th 2017 and is open to U.K. residents only. 

Choc nibbles & win some! 

Published June 19, 2017 by Bizzimummy

I’m sure most of us parents who grew up in the 1980s/90s will remember these! 


The memories of coming out of school and straight into the local shop to buy a quarter of choc nibbles  for 30p with left over dinner money or (if we were lucky!) pocket money.

I loved and still love choc nibbles. If you don’t remember them, then maybe you just didn’t get out much. The best way to describe them is like a mixture of soft caramel, mixes with choc lick (another old favourite) and maybe a bit of ground biscuit and something else, then coated with chocolate and made into little sticks which taste delicious. 

It’s a shame how most corner shops have changed over the years, I loved looking at all the plastic sweet jars behind shop counters frantically browsing for the choc nibs.

 Although the shops may have changed and the majority of the cheap sweets in big jar memories are long gone, I am happy to say that Choc Nibbles are still around and here to stay.


You see I have discovered a place on the internet that loves those old fashioned chocolate sweets just as much as I do, it’s even called Choc nibbles. Their tasty treats aren’t available via the website but their are several stockists around the UK, including one just a few minutes away from me. 

The choc nibs can be purchased as jars or in bags or from sweet shops by measure. 

I never understood what exactly a quarter was, which we all would ask for as kids. A quarter of what exactly? Who knows but it was always a pretty big paper bag full. 

The bags contain 250g of sweets, yes even the measurements have changed over the years. 

These taste just like I remember. It is possibly the only thing that hasn’t changed about the nibbles over the years. 

They also make a slightly different variety too. 


These are similar in taste but appear to have been a little jazzed up with an extra shiny chocolate coating giving them a smoother and brighter appearance. Thus less cocoa powder on the hands like the original version. 

They do a few other versions of chocolate nibbles too such as toffee crumble nibbles and a Jammie version too. Also original choc lick, remember the chocolate dust stuff in white paper bags, that we dipped wet fingers in and licked off? Then by the time half had gone the bag got soggy and we ended up with chocolate dust all over our white tops! Oops!!


It’s like being a kid again with all these sweets! 

Giveaway 

I have two bags of choc nibbles to give away. If you want to win them then just click the link!

The giveaway is for two bags of choc nibbles and will close on July 3rd 2017.


NumNoms series 3 

Published June 17, 2017 by Bizzimummy


We have a few more cute collectible goody type characters from Num Noms series 3 packs. 

Izebella absolutely loves these strange rubbery type tiny figures, in fact I have had to upgrade her to a larger storage box to keep them all in or otherwise I would be finding odd Num Nom bits all over. 

It seems that with every new series of Num Noms, new parts are introduced as well of course as characters and themes which are all based around food items. 

Series 3 bought with it Num Nom lights too which are a completely new series all on there own including light ups, glitter and even freezie pop Num Noms

They are called Num Noms because of the two parts – The num and the Nom. I can’t recall which one is which but one of them is the rubbery textured soft part and the other part is the one that does something, this can be a moving part, a stamper, rubber, lip gloss etc. They keep coming with new quirky things.

Here are some of our latest series 3.


They are bright, colourful and very sweet looking. We found a stamp and eraser and even a strange part which has a hole in. I’m not too sure what this part is for.


Here’s Jordanna with her friend trying to work out which one is which out of a large box of all our Num Noms collection. 


I think girls of all ages love these. Num Nom packs can be purchased pretty much anywhere in most good toy stores and in various pack sizes.

Oyster skincare brightening eye serum

Published June 14, 2017 by Bizzimummy

Oyster Skincare is a new premium skincare brand. Their products are a blend potent skin enhancing actives with precious mood enhancing essential oils. 

One of their products is this Brightening eye serum which can be purchased for £14.99 on Amazon.


I turn a big 40 years old tomorrow and although I don’t really look my age and certainly don’t feel it; there are a few tell tale signs on my face that show some ageing. Head lines are one and darkness under my eyes is another. Others don’t really notice these things but I do when I look in a mirror.

This beauty product contains a blend of good stuff including –  Hyaluronic Acid, Co-Enzyme Q10, Pentapeptides, Green tea, cucumber, flower extracts and lots of other good stuff. Many of these ingredients have been scientifically proven to help with lines, wrinkles and other anti ageing features. Hyaluronic Acid it contains helps to smooth the skin whilst being very hydrating. Pentapeptides and Co-Enzyme Q10 are both great for anti-aging too. 

The serum is a fairly thick clear liquid which looks a bit like clear gel. I apply under and around my eyes, taking care not to put any inside my actual eye. The first thing I noticed when applying the product is just how cool it felt on my eyes. It’s an instant nice cooling sensation followed by a slight tightness. It absorbs into the boxes skin within about 30 seconds with a slight stickiness which dissolves soon after.


I think it’s working a little. The dark rings are certainly fading and slightly less sagging/more tighter around the eyes. 

If you want to try this yourself you can purchase via Amazon, or have a go at winning yourself one in my giveaway below.
GIVEAWAY

Oyster skin care are giving away one 30ml bottle of their brightening eye serum worth £14.99.
