123-Flowers 

Published October 19, 2017 by Bizzimummy

It’s such a pleasant feeling when a bunch of beautiful flowers arrives at my door. On this occasion my flowers came from 123-flowers.

Flowers from 123-flowers seem to cost less than many other similar flower delivery services with bunches as little as £19 and free next day delivery. 


My flowers are perfect for the Autumn season with a vibrant mixture of reds, deep purples and greens. A lovely selection of carnations and chrysanthemums make up this pretty vibrant delight bouquet.

Choose between small, medium or large starting at £22.00. A pop up vase comes included free which saves the need of hunting round for a glass one. However if you prefer the glass vase then one can be added for £5.99 extra. 


Plant/flower Food also comes included which is meant to make the flowers last longer. 

Other additional extras include bears, wine, balloons and chocolates. A message card can be included free of charge too. 

Beautiful puzzles from Crocodile Creek 

Published October 13, 2017 by Bizzimummy

Izebella loves doing jigsaws and puzzles and she’s really good and fast at doing them. She also loves anything considered girly, think fairies, castles, unicorns etc. So imagine her delight when she got a box of puzzles with many of her favourite themes on them.

Her new puzzles come from Crocodile Creek who are American based. They sell many unusual puzzles, games and toys and a large range of their items are available via Amazon.

What makes these puzzles stand out the most I think, is the boxes they come in. Just look how pretty this one is.


This one immediately caught my eye. It is a 36 piece floor puzzle with large puzzle pieces. Izebella found it quite easy but she loves the image so makes it over and over again. It is called the “Flower Princess” and retails around £10.00.

 

Equally as pretty is the Ballerina puzzle. Again the box stands out immediately. It isn’t the standard square or recatangle puzzle box and the colours are just so bold. The puzzles look almost vintage or retro. 


Finally a very special box, combining a princess puzzle and pop out playset with figures and a tower.

It’s the box upon a time princess palace set.  

This is just adorable as it’s so much more than just doing a jigsaw, and again Just look at the lovely (and very strong) box. This is not one of those puzzle boxes that will fall apart after a few weeks. 

All these figures are waiting inside to be played with, along with a castle tower. When finished playing it can all easily be stored back in the box. This costs slightly more than the floor puzzles above but little girls who love princesses will love this.


These puzzles were sent to us via Bertoy.

Natural salt lamps 

Published October 12, 2017 by Bizzimummy

I now own one of these awesome and very natural salt lamps. 


This lamp comes from Himasal UK who mainly sell their products to trade rather than directly but their items can be purchased in many places.

Salt lamps have actually been around for years but have only recently started appearing in shops and stores for consumers to purchase. I believe many people will soon be wanting one of these in their home, as they certainly make an interesting feature.

These lamps are made with Himalayan rock sal, if you happen to put a finger in your mouth after touching the lamp then it will taste of salt. Obviously the salt itself does not light up, a hole is made in the bottom of the lamp to allow for insertion of a plug in light and base. 


It gives a lovely pinkish soft glow, a bit like a Christmas lantern. It’s really pretty. But as well as being a stunning feature, these lamps even come with some health benefits.

“Salt Lamps clean the air around them using a natural water-absorption process called hygroscopy. Our Himalayan salt pulls in moisture from the air, absorbing dust particles and pollutants with it. The heated bulb then gently warms the salt, releasing the water, but keeping the harmful irritants.”

This process can help with many health problems such as allergies and inability to sleep properly. It can also help with low mood and especially so SAD.

I was so surprised with Just how little these extremely pretty lamps cost. I was thinking in the hundreds but they are actually really cheap. The price goes off the lamp size and weight as they are all different.


Salt lamps can be shaped and carved into all sorts of shapes and sizes. I do love the natural lamp shapes the best. One thing I did not anticipate about my lamp was the weight of it. It is just so heavy and they come much bigger and heavier than mine too. I did struggle to carry mine to its chosen location, and would not want this to fall on my feet. 

Make Christmas 2017 special with Kinder chocolate

Published October 11, 2017 by Bizzimummy

Kinder is the well known kids confectionery brand by Fererro. Ferrero being the 4th largest player in the global confectionery market. Kinder are most known for their kinder eggs which I have been around for as long as I can remember. Kinder chocolate has its own unique milky taste which is certainly identifiable once tasted. As well as those chocolate eggs with mini toys inside, Kinder now has a selection of festive stocking fillers and pre Xmas goodies.

 


For getting children in the festive spirit, nothing quite beats an advent calendar. Especially not one full of melt in the mouth mini kinder bars.
 


Kinder even have a letter to Santa kit too. This could be given with the advent calendar at the beginning of December. The kit contains writing paper, stickers and an addressed envelope to Santa’s grotto. It also includes 8 kinder bars.



Kinder has a fair few products to be used as stocking fillers or even small gifts for relatives and friends children. These include Kinder surprise Christmas eggs, bar packs, tubes, baskets, chocolate figures and even a Kinder mini fluffy toy gift set.

 


All of these yummy Kinder products will be in stores and supermarkets this month. Products will vary per store. These festive chocolate products range in price from just one pound to just under £8.00 each.

More kinder Christmas treats can be found on the Fererro website.

Gift Pup

Published September 22, 2017 by Bizzimummy

Gift Pup, the place for personalised gifts let us choose a few of their products. 

I do love personalised gifts as they give that extra special touch, be it birthday or Christmas; personalised gifts are in a way, a unique kind of present. 

First Jordanna has a beautiful fairy cushion with her name on.


My girls love anything fairies on and I think this is a really pretty gift for any girl. Each cushion is custom made to order within 48 hours and they are also allergy free with allergy friendly filling. The cushions cost £24.99 with included  personalisation. If fairies aren’t for you then Gift Pup have many other cushion designs to choose from including photo uploads. The cushions are all priced differently too. 


Ryan has an apron. It may seem strange for a boy to have an apron but Ryan enjoys cooking and took hospitality and catering as an option at school. He can use the school aprons but chooses to use his own and he was in need of a new one, so here it is: 


There is also a bit of a joke behind the dishwasher thing, he rarely, if ever washes the pots at home but seemed to have a strange obsession with a dishwasher whilst on a trip away.  I don’t have any pictures of him wearing this unfortunately as he wouldn’t let me take one. I am assured it fits him fine and some of his friends have told me that he wears it in every cookery lesson. 

Again many choices of Aprons at Gift Pup. Adult aprons cost £17.99 and kids for £14.99. 

Gift Pup have lots of lovely personalised gifts to choose from for that extra personal touch.

Sleepzzz Until Birthday Buddy 

Published September 21, 2017 by Bizzimummy

Two weeks today and my youngest Izebella turns a big five. When this blog first started she was just 6 months old. She is growing up way too quick and very much looking forward to her birthday and special party. The presents bought, outfit bought and now it’s just the waiting. She’s been asking everyday for weeks “how long until my birthday?” and gets a little frustrated when I’ve told her not for a few weeks. 

Yesterday she had a special delivery of a birthday buddy which is part of the Ackerman Sleepzzz Until product line.


This is a very special buddy bear who can take some of the frustration of waiting away. Birthday buddy comes as both a girl and a boy. In the box is the special buddy bear, a countdown calendar and stickers.


The calendar which can be hung or stood up has a 14 day tear off countdown. The 14 days prior is when most children start getting really excited thinking about their birthday. Each day Izebella can tear off one of the pages revealing a number less each time. This can also help with important number recognition too. Each number sheet also has a space to record what Izebella has done on each day and she can be rewarded with a sticker a day until her birthday. 


Yes just like those Christmas elves, our birthday buddy will be closely watching Izebella up until her birthday to make sure she behaves, if she wants her presents that is! 

So it also helps with behaviour, in Izebellas case I know it will as she was good as gold last year when the elves made an appearance so this is a similar thing for her. 

Birthday buddy is also good for hugs. Our girl version which is now named Lucy even comes with a removeable dress. 

They cost about £19.95 and Christmas versions are also available.

Culti Odarosae room spray 

Published September 4, 2017 by Bizzimummy

Imagine a room spray that leaves a room smelling like actual flowers or perfume? Well this is it!


This room spray by Culti can be purchased from Rooi who also sell scented candles and many homeware accessories. 
It is a glass bottle spray as opposed to an aerosol and it comes in a gift box too.

 

The aromas are very much rose and not the cheap rose scent that other sprays give, but more like the real rose oil which can be quite expensive to buy. There is also a slight fruity aroma with the rose, possibly blackberry but I’m not too sure. Anyway a couple of sprays of this stuff leaves all my rooms smelling of roses. It hides any nasty smells really well as it’s really strong. The scents also last longer than other room sprays and air fresheners and despite using it daily, the bottle is still almost full so I know this will last for quite a while. 

 It costs £34.00 for a 100ml glass bottle. This is much more than what I’d normally pay out for this type of product but obviously it’s 10-20 times better than the cheaper stuff, stronger aromas and lasts longer too. 

It would make a nice gift also for the ladies who love their scented products. 

Back to School: Find me a Gift

Published August 17, 2017 by Bizzimummy

Find me a gift are an online gift paradise with all sorts of weird, wonderful and novelty items and gifts. They also have a lovely Back to School section, with (as you can probably guess!) lots of weird & wonderful stationery pieces for the younger novelty lovers. 


Many of their gifts can be personalised, this is something that coma in extremely useful in my house and also at school. After all if stationery has your name on it, then no one can steal it and claim it as theirs (unless they share the same names that is!)


These personalised pencil sets start from £5.99. They arrive ready sharpened in packs of 12 with any child’s name on and little logos such as hearts and footballs.


My daughter Jordanna is now 10 and loves both stationery and make up. She was thrilled when she saw her new nail varnish highlighters.


They look just like my bottles of nail polish until they are opened and it’s actually a highlighter. There are 4 to a pack and these cost £4.99. Very cool and colourful indeed.

Finally, how gorgeous do these unicorns look!


We are all a fan of unicorns in this house and these are incredibly cute as well as being very practical. One of them a coloured pencil holder with 10 colouring pencils £8.99. The other is a coloured tape dispenser complete with two rolls of coloured tape £7.99. They both make great desktop pieces.  

Lovely products, which kids will love from Find me a Gift.

Back to School: Thinking Gifts 

Published August 15, 2017 by Bizzimummy

Thinking gifts sell book accessories and novelty stationery items. These are the sort of novelty items that I would not class a necessary school essentials, but more added fun extras to make going back to school just a little bit happier. 


Thinking gifts sell some great little notepads and sticky note sets. My kids love these as it means they can leave silly notes for myself and each other. I like them because I stick them on my front door for the parcel deliveries when I’m out. 

Just take a look at these! 


It’s hard to believe that these are all sticky notes. Very funky indeed. I love the little toaster. This comes with 2 sticky more pads looking like bread. It also has a pencil sharpener on the side. They come in red and blue and the coloured surface is even magnetic so it can hold paperclips or even fridge magnets. 

Everything on the cheese board is a sticky note pad. Even the board itself. The notes aren’t just colourful and patterned on the front page either, but all the way throughout.

Then the sticky note sandwich. This is pretty amazing, not only is it really colourful but each coloured page comes as part of a sandwich. Pink being ham, yellow being cheese and green being lettuce. You can make your own sandwich with the notes.


We also have a smiley emoji sticky notepad too.


Along with the octopus book holder. This gets attached to two pages of a book and holds the book open whilst you read. 

emoji line markers clip to pages magnetically and remind where I left off. 

The flexinlight is a bookmark which lights up. Great for night time reading and as you can see it’s pretty bright. 

These are lovely unusual novelty gifts which will no doubt have my children’s school friends asking “Where did you get those from?”

Ink drops subscription 

Published July 27, 2017 by Bizzimummy

Ink drops is a monthly subscription service which brings a packet of unified stationery items through the letterbox each month. 

It seems a good subscription for those who still enjoy good old fashioned letter writing as many of the packages seem to come with cards, stickers, pens and other bits that make letters more fun.

The contents obviously vary each month and come with different themes, each subscriber receiving the same items

The items don’t come in the usual cardboard box, but rather a pretty paper packet which sort of gives it the old fashioned feel.

Anyway here are the contents of the July ink drops. 


There are two glittery cards, one is a birthday card and the other blank. Two colourful lolly erasers which I’m assuming are from another country as I cannot understand the language. Then a moon notepad and a pack of coloured small highlighters.

The majority of the products all have foreign writing on, it looks Japanese but I could be wrong but it does mean that these items are more harder to come by.

Ink drop subscriptions cost £15.45 for the UK which includes shipping and slightly more for Europe and the rest of the world.

For this price I was expecting slightly more products than what was in the packet. I’m guessing that the price reflects sourcing the more unique products. I think I would be slightly disappointed paying the £15+ for this package myself, tho people who collect stationery or are looking for more unique cards and bits will probably enjoy this one.
