Let’s talk school shoes. A constant expense. If it’s not our children constantly growing, it’s the shoes themselves wearing out. The shoes I bought L at the start of the school year didn’t even make it to half term, we’re on our second pair already! So when Treads got in touch to see if I’d like to review a pair of their school shoes, complete with a one year guarantee, I was very intrigued.
We recently had a lovely delivery of socks from the Sock Shop and I have been impressed.
I have a bit of a weakness for socks, I’m always buying new ones. I love a fluffy sock, long socks, funny socks. So I’m always happy to get socks. Husb is starting a new job and goes through socks at a rate of knots so it was handy to get some for him. Mainly though I wanted to see if we could find anything for the child, socks are an ongoing and incredibly irritating battle. He is determined he cannot put them on by himself and is painfully fussy about what can be on them.
Baabuk make beautiful wool slippers, boots and sneakers that not only look great but are functional too. I have been sent a pair of their Yves slippers and I am so impressed.
My Yves slippers are a beautiful Burgundy, keep my feet toasty warm and are completely practical around the house with the elastic side that makes them easy to slip on and off and the firm rubber sole so I can nip outside if I need too and am fully protected from the lego/marble/tiny sharp toy fiasco that is my home.
Anyone who knows me will be fully aware that spending hours shopping for clothes is not my thing. I like just to find a few key items that look great and are comfortable and practical. This is especially important to me over winter!
Summer this year seems never ending and I am loving it but it has made me realise that my summer wardrobe is lacking. To the point I’ve had to resort to ‘holiday’ clothes, yep, I’ve worn my holiday shorts out and about in actual public. The shame!! So I’ve been working with Simply Be to create a wish list, hopefully you’ll love everything as much as I do.
OK I’m going to be honest with you. I hate shopping. Hate it. I gain no pleasure from it but at least get new clothes at the end, when it comes to shopping for husb, not only is he a fussy bugger but I don’t get any new clothes, just stress. So I love to shop online and was very happy to give boohooMAN a try. Continue reading Shopping with boohooMAN→
I recently got sent a package of items from YourDesign. A print company that lets you put your design on loads of things. So that’s what I did, popped my blog logo on a mug, hoodie, t-shirt and a baseball style shirt for husb.
When it comes to my blog poor old husb often gets left out. L and I get to try new things and go on all kinds of adventures, but husb, well not so much. This one is all about him though, with some great picks for men’s summer style from Jacamo. Continue reading Men’s Summer Style from Jacamo→
