Life Canvas stationery range

Over the summer we heard about the launch of two new and exciting Life Canvas stationery ranges, ‘Wild’ and ‘Paris’. Instead of our usual Parragon Book Buddy book review, today I am going to tell you about some items from the new range. We received a Journal and pack of Mini Sticky Notes.

I love stationery so was very excited to receive these items. I’m not sure I would have picked them for myself but it is a pretty stationery collection and I love the vintage Parisian theme.


Journal – A chic and practical journal to capture to-do lists, shopping lists, things to remember, or just moments of sheer inspiration that need to be recorded! Each of the 160 pages features a gorgeous design that makes using every page a joy.

Mini Sticky Notes – Great for jotting down notes, to-do lists or things to remember, sticky notes are one of life’s essentials! This adorable folder of mini sticky notes is pocket-sized, and features 11 whimsical designs and 275 individual stickies.


If you would like to find out more information about the Life Canvas stationery, you can find more on Parragon’s website.

Prima Princessa Nutcracker DVD Review

The children were sent a really lovely DVD to watch – Prima Princessa Presents The Nutcracker. We’ve all really enjoyed watching something a little different and the music is wonderful.

Prima Princessa

Prima Princessa Presents The Nutcracker is a DVD for young children, and has just been released in the United Kingdom for the first time. It has been designed to get children off the sofa and dancing. My children might be a little young but I’m sure it won’t be long before Little Sis demands a tutu and starts dancing around the lounge. The Nutcracker always reminds me of Christmas and this would make a great stocking filler for girls and boys.

Enjoy the Birmingham Royal Ballet performing excerpts from The Nutcracker, narrated for children by a cartoon fairy-ballerina. Dance along to fun ballet step demonstrations featuring students from the School of American Ballet, the official academy of the New York City Ballet. The DVD is available for sale on Amazon for £5.99.

Ecover Zero review

We were sent a selection of products from the Ecover Zero range and have been using them over the last few weeks.

Ecover Zero has been specially crafted to give exceptional washing results for people who want a fragrance free allergy-approved product they can trust. Perfect for sensitive skin, the Zero core range of Laundry Liquid, Washing Powder, Fabric Conditioner and Washing Up Liquid are dermatologically tested and approved by Allergy UK.

Both the children have sensitive skin so I like to use products which will be kind to their skin. These products have been great and I’ve seen a real improvement in everyone’s skin since using them. The washing is lovely and soft too which is always a bonus.

Ecover Zero doesn’t mean we need to compromise on effectiveness as the Washing Powder and Washing up Liquid carrying the Good Housekeeping 2012 Approval. Cutting through grease, tackling tough stains at 30oc and leaving your clothes luxuriously soft are results to expect with Ecover Zero with their core range of Washing Up Liquid, Laundry Detergents and Fabric Conditioner.

Ecover Zero uses only gentle plant-based and mineral ingredients, no phosphates and is fragrance free.
