Lottie dolls were launched in 2012 and now sell in over 30 countries. We were first introduced to Lottie a few years ago when my daughter (Jordanna) was a little younger (now 9). As Jordanna is getting a bit big for dolls, it’s now the turn of Izebella to experience Lottie. She now has 2 of the dolls to start with.
Lottie dolls differ from other fashion dolls in a few ways. For a start they are slightly smaller, measuring 7 and half inches. All Lottie dolls are the same size and each one comes with a different outfit and it’s own name and personality.
The main difference with Lottie dolls is that the dolls are created to challenge negative body image concerns, premature sexualisation and the demise of childhood. None of the dolls come with make-up, high heels or jewellery. If I’m being totally honest, this never really bothered or affected me, I had lots of barbie dolls when younger, however I do realise that things are different these days and more children worry about body image now.Lottie is designed to look like a child aged approximately 9 years old.
There are lots of Lottie’s to collect and accessories too. Each one coming with its own theme and own hobby or skill. Izebella has two Lottie dolls. One being the Rockabiility lottie and the other is the new Forest friend who comes dressed in a fairy costume.
Both dolls are very different both in outfits and hair colour. Izebella says that Forest friend lottie looks like herself as she has red hair and a fringe. Rockability lottie is all about music and listening to bands.
The dolls are fully poseable and made from similar materials as other well known fashion dolls. They can be stood up and propped against a wall, sat down and lay down.
Izebella seems to love swapping the clothes and swapping back again and is very happy with her new dolls.
Lottie even has its own Club to join online which offers discounts and competitions to members.
Lottie dolls start from about £16.00 upwards. I have not spotted them in the usual well known toy stores unfortunately but; they can be purchased from the UK Lottie store, Amazon, Ocado and eBay.
The prize for this giveaway will be one Forest friends Lottie doll.
To take part you must be a U.K. resident and enter before March 29th 2017.
March is upon us already and it will soon be time to spring clean our homes in time for the Summer.
I do love my home fragrances, I find candles a little hard to use as I have both kids and cats so I have to be careful with flames. I do like my diffusers and have recently received one from Quinnlilly. Quinlilly sell lots of diffusers, scented candles and home fragrance type products and this is my new reed diffuser.
The packaging box that the product arrives in is quite pretty and so makes it a rather nice gift to give. This one is Grapefruit and Mimosa and there are three others to choose from costing £12.99 each.
Diffusers don’t need lighting like candles do and nor do they require batteries or plugging in. The glass bottles come filled with essential oils and the reeds sit inside the bottle absorbing the fragrances and releasing into the home. The reeds just need turning frequently and I turn mine daily.
It’s a lovely sweet, zesty aroma which makes my home smell much better. GIVEAWAY
Quinn Lilly are giving away a prize from their website. One winner will beable to choose from either a scented candle or reed diffuser in any fragrance.

When I hear the word “Bamboo” I instantly think of Pandas andBamboo Pete is all about cute pandas and panda clothing. They sell t-shirts, vests, hoodies and jumpers and all panda style for panda lovers.
Boasting a lovely panda image, company name, drawstring hood and one of those large pocket things on the front to keep hands warm. There are other colours and styles available but I really like white when it comes to clothes.
It’s lovely a fleecy inside so keeps me warm, but it does not make me sweat like some jumpers do. I doubt I’ll have the hood up much but here’s a pic anyway.
It’s a lovely style warm top, just perfect for the U.K. weather. The sizes start at XS all the way to XXL. I have size S (adult) which is the second smallest size. The top gives quite a lot of room as sizes seem generous. I would of easily fitted in the XS one too and I’m normally a size 8/10.
As a family we like to do occasional movie nights. This is where we will choose a movie or two to all watch (on a none school night) and bring in a few munchies, pop etc. Not always the healthiest choices but it’s not every night.
Now when this big box arrived packed full of munching goodies; we knew it was time for another family movie night.
The box was sent to us from Tommy Tucker. They sell many movie style snacks including popcorn, potato snacks and even candy floss.
Some of the popcorn, along with the candy floss even comes in movie style resealable plastic tubs, meaning we can just place them on our knees and help ourselves as we wish.
Each tub contains a litre of popcorn. The candy floss looked just like a tub of fluff and Izebella loved it.
These large 120g sharing bags also went down really well.
Jordanna seems to enjoy the salty varieties of popcorn more than the sweet or toffee. With the share bags it’s 142 calories per serving tho I’m not too sure if a serving means the whole bag or not.
My favourite was the new luxury popcorn bags. These are just delicious.
Each bag is 200g of pure indulgent toffee popcorn goodness. Choose from cocoa, salted caramel & vanilla, tropical coconut and raspberry sensation. All of them taste amazing and the bags can be very addictive once opened. It all just tastes so nice and creamy aswell as crunchy.
All Tommy Tucker products can be purchased via the website in multi packs and of course, you may just spot them in your local cinema too. PRIZE GIVEAWAY

This mysterious little box came through my door a few days ago, but what could possibly be inside?
Well no, there are no Fred’s inside it but there are people of some sort!
Yes it’s mini figures. The box can be a subscription service or a one off gift and each box contains many mini figures just like the ones I found in our box. There are hundreds of these to collect with many themes too – such as movies, tv , Christmas, Easter, princesses, heroes and more.
The box we have is the larger box containing 10 figures. There are options of a medium box with 6 figures and the small box with 2 figures and the price starts at £4.85. There is an option of selecting a girls, boys or unisex box too and a further option of adding greeting cards.
The figures are small and can be played with most leading brands of lego. My 4 year old has some strange obsession with Harley Quinn and look what we got in our box!
Also a few batman figures and others that I’m not too sure on, but I’m sure my kids will no doubt let me know.
If I was to put this subscription box into a category then it would be between kids and geek as it’s a little bit of both. Kids will no doubt love collecting and using the figures with their lego; but I also think many men out there may just enjoy re-living their childhoods and wanting to collect these figures, especially so the old movie and more retro type figures.
My children seemed happy enough with it. Izebella loving the Harley Quinn figure and only that one. Ryan of course seemed most interested so maybe it is more of a boy thing as Jordanna isn’t really into lego and these type of figures any more but Ryan loves it.
If interested you can get your Fred’s box here and there is also a chance to win one below. COMPETITION
Fred’s box are giving one winner a 3 month subscription to one of their small boxes. You will get 2 figures each time, so a total of 6 over the 3 months.
Please click the link below to enter. You must have both Facebook and twitter accounts and be a UK resident.
