With the kiddies returning to school last week. I had to feature some of the amazing products from Paperchase. I squealed when Noah and Isla received their goody’s. Monkeys and Bananas for Noah. Unicorns and Hello Kitty for Isla. I am in love with the themed back to school items at the moment. I really wish I had fun stuff like this when I was a kid. I secretly do want Isla’s lunch box to take to work with me. That’s OK. Isn’t it?
- back to school
If, like me, you are a working Mum that has just over 2 weeks to kit the children out with their new school uniforms (replace the scuffed shoes, torn edged trousers and chewed jumper sleeves!) you will want to get as much as you can in a “one stop shop”. John Lewis is just that. John Lewis challenged me to find everything I need in their school uniform shop, and I managed to get everything I needed for under £100.
You will never lose anything again with these fabulous, personalised, labels from Petit Fernand. We were sent a booklet of iron on labels for Noah and Isla for their school uniform. We were also sent stick on labels for their drinks bottles and other useful school items. I kept finding things to stick the labels on, I got a bit carried away.
Gel-a-Peel are giving one of my lucky readers this fab 3 pack kit in this competition. A great something to do as we start back to school. Your little one can decorate their purse, school bag or school books. I wish I had stuff like this when I was younger. You can do so much with it and it is really popular.
Now as most of you know who follow my blog, I am far from the perfect Mummy. I forget their school kits all the time, take them to school with their hair unbrushed or even worse uniform on inside out! It can be stressful trying to remember to do the mental checklist before you leave the house and those first days of school are harder. Because its the first day of school!
We were sent a fabulous book for Isla’s second birthday from itsyourstory.co.uk, it is a fantastic personalised book website where you can buy books from all different themes for all different ages. A trip to the farm for Isla’s birthday is such a great idea for a 2 year old as she loves pointing at things and telling me what they are and the fact her face is in the book makes it all the more magical for her.
