In Love With Light – Lumie Bodyclock Active 250

Oh yes, Spring had sprung, everything is lighter and brighter and that makes everyone happier. Daylight is clearly an important thing.

We’re big fans of Lumie in our house, I use the Desk Lamp at my workspace and my husband has been using the Iris Bodyclock which also works as an aromatherapy diffuser, so when we were sent the Active 250 to review, with it’s radio and white noise functions it made sense to me that I nabbed the other half’s Iris which I had been lusting over and he used the Active 250.

My February Degustabox

Time for my monthly Degustabox feature, if you haven’t seen previous month’s posts, Degustabox is a monthly subscription box, filled with amazing new foods for you to try out. Including new lines from big brands and foods from smaller brands that you maybe weren’t aware of. For £12.99 per box you will have contents worth well in excess of that, get the chance to try something new and maybe even find a new favourite treat. I enjoy getting to try things I wouldn’t normally buy for my family.IMG_20160224_123431

Our Review of the Motorola Focus 85

For the last few weeks we have been using the Motorola Focus 85 HD WiFi video monitoring camera.

We have had various home cams over the last year or so, so far they have all been static so I was really excited that with the Motorola Focus 85 we could zoom, pan and tilt the camera remotely.

L’s Kiddyum Review

Please tell me I am not the only one who sometimes finds themselves standing at the fridge wondering how on earth you are going to prepare a meal with what you’ve got, one that’s quick, easy and will be enjoyed by your toddler. It’s not just me is it?

I wish I was the kind of mum who was organised enough to always have meals planned and live with a permanently stocked fridge, but I am not. So when Kiddyum got in touch to see if L would like to try some of their frozen ready meal range I was really excited.
