Review ~ Hair Accessory Store Selection

Hair Accessories Shop Review Hairgrips

Hair accessories… what little girl doesn’t love them?  

We were sent a selection of hair grips and headbands from the Hair Accessory Store and our 7 year old was very excited!  She has been growing her fringe out for a while now and is thrilled that she can tuck it behind her ears stylishly without it falling back.

 

Girl’s Got Style

I say ‘stylishly’ because she really ‘knows’ her own style and whenever we buy her new clothes, she comes with us to the shop or looks online.  Otherwise, there’s really no point because it’ll just go back to the shop for a refund.  Hubby and I both believe that it’s an important part of her growing up, empowering her – to be able to express herself, and not dictate to her what she can and can’t wear  – we never have done (school uniform is an exception to this, obviously – though you can also get decent uniform designs now!)

 

And Hair’s The Thing

The Hair Accessory Shop has got a really good range of hair clips, head bands and the like.  Not only are they well-made but they’re also comfortable to wear (so I’m told – there are have been no complaints about headbands pinching behind the ears or hair grips and butterfly clamps getting caught in hair when being removed.
I was really impressed with the hair grips in fact; they’re made of a foam-like material and none of the hair gets caught in the join like can happen in metal ones.
Hair Accessories Shop Review Hairgrips
Predictably, our daughter absolutely loved the colourful butterfly clamps which appear to be made of a slightly flexibly rubber material.  Ideal for little hands styling their hair because they don’t dig into the fingers when you’re putting them in.
And of course there’s the over-sized headband which is fun to wear.

Starting from £1.49 from the selection we were sent, I’d say these accessories are excellent value for money, given that hair things inevitably end up in the same places as odd-socks in our house – they won’t cost a fortune to replace!

Review ~ All natural HAPS Superfruit and boosters drink

Review ~ All Natural HAPS Superfruit And Boosters Drink For Your Wellbeing And mental health

All natural HAPS Superfruit and boosters

This is not just a healthy drink, there is a real science behind it.

And it’s all natural because it contains whole fruit powders and boosters which increase serotonin production naturally, rehydrate, revitalise and improve mental wellbeing.  Anything that boosts your mood naturally has got to be a good thing.  And while we’re talking about serotonin… it’s really worth taking a few minutes to watch this little video which explains all about how serotonin works, alongside vitamins and minerals.  

A bit of the story behind We are HAPS

Rik is the founder of We are HAPS and has experienced depression and anxiety first-hand.  Frustrated at taking supplements, he’s gone all out to help others and has produced HAPS.  In his own words, “although I’m much better now, I need to help others.”

And that’s exactly what he’s aiming to do.

The packaging’s bright

My little parcel popped through my letterbox in a simple cardboard box (no ‘sorry we missed you cards’ = win!).  Nothing over the top, just plain simple.  The box was easy to open and inside were 3 sachets in a lovely sunshine colour, along with a nice bright HAPS card just to brighten my day a little more.

Review ~ All Natural HAPS Superfruit And Boosters Drink For Your Wellbeing And mental health

 

So is the drink any good?

Well first you have to make it up by adding a sachet of the powder to 250ml of water.  After a thorough mix to avoid lumps and bumps, you’re good to go.  Yes, that’s it – nice and simple.  The drink’s gentle yet nice and zingy on your tastebuds.  The citrus isn’t too overpowering and if you mix it right, the texture isn’t too powdery on your tongue.  I found it very pleasant, though I don’t think I’d drink it everyday.  Incidentally, it’s definitely worth reading the FAQs on the website about the frequency and when to drink and not to drink HAPS.

Review ~ All Natural HAPS Superfruit And Boosters Drink For Your Wellbeing And mental Health

With an RRP of £16 for 7 sachets to £38 for 21 sachets and a pouch for £49, it’s pretty good value, given that you’re not advised to drink it every day (again, see those FAQs people).

To recap with the main benefits

Help regulate mood, appetite and sleep by naturally boosting serotonin

Improve your response to stress with vitamins B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B12, C, D & Zin

Support your immune system & skin health with superfruit Baobab

Stay alert throughout the day with sustained energy from Coconut healthy fats

Keep hydrated with added electrolytes to aid the flow of nutrients in the body

Safety At Work Tips And Tricks For Health And Safety Wellbeing
How To Lift Your Mood With The Right Lighting For More Positive Thinking
Days Out That Are Fun And Educational For The Family Rossall School

Safety at work tips and tricks

When I was asked by SHEilds NEBOSH training providers to talk about health and safety at work, I thought it was a brilliant idea – it’s all about keeping safe and happy in all areas of life isn’t it?

The average person spends alot of time at work, after all.  Going about your daily work, rushing around, sometimes on auto-pilot can mean that we get clumsy, miss spotting trip-hazards or we think someone will see the bag that you always put down next to your desk.

Watch out for the near-miss

I’ve known of ‘near misses’ when someone has almost tripped on a bag handle that has found its way into a walkway.  That bag might always be put there day in, day out and everyone knows it’s there… until  someone new comes along or someone’s carrying something and they can’t see it.
Safety At Work Tips And Tricks For Health And Safety Wellbeing

Never assume

Never assume that someone knows an object is there just because that’s where you always put it before you flick the kettle on for your morning cuppa!

Oh and don’t you just love your morning cuppa?!  Whether it’s a nice strong coffee or a, “tea, 2 sugars please!”

Why not pop it in a travel mug, with a secure lid?  It’ll keep it hot for longer and prevent the dreaded spillage all over the keyboard and electrics!  Since doing exactly that, I’m a convert to my ‘travel cup’ with secure lid and my one with a straw for my water and juice.  A little bit of liquid goes a long way.  Trust me, I know!

An accident waiting to happen?

And those computer leads under the desk?  Yeah they’ve been like that for ages.  They’ll be okay.  I know they’re there because when I stretch my legs out, I get tangled up!  But spare a thought for the person who doesn’t know those cables are there…  Quite a hazard, getting tangled up in electrical cables.

This all applies in any workspace, including if you work from home.  There are still all of these going on in the average home workspace.  And now it’s clear to see why it’s so important to #StaySafeatWork

Have you had a near-miss or an incident in your workplace that you’d like to share?  Let me know in the comments below or tweet me @AllSortsHere 🙂

Lifting Your Mood With The Right Lighting

How To Lift Your Mood With The Right Lighting For More Positive Thinking
Days Out That Are Fun And Educational For The Family Rossall School

Lifting Your Mood With The Right Lighting

Lighting can make all the difference to the mood of a room when you’re looking to update and modernise your living or office space.  It’s worth considering switching to LED lighting and it couldn’t be easier.  Especially when you choose somewhere like www.thelightingsuperstore.co.uk.

Much like ‘traditional’ bulbs, LEDs can be dimmed and come to fit all shapes and sizes of fittings and fixtures.  There’s something to suit all moods and size of space.

How To Lift Your Mood With The Right Lighting For More Positive Thinking

Somewhere to relax or revitalise

Whether you’re looking for somewhere to relax your mind or somewhere to revitalise, you can relax knowing that in the long-run you will be saving on your energy bill.

The dimmable LEDs are a fantastic tool to create your chosen atmosphere all year round because as the nights draw in and out, you can still create a cosy feel by dimming in and out.  These infographics helps to show the benefits to the environment (and your pocket) and the versatility of LEDs.


Feel the difference

The difference a well-lit room makes to your mood really can be amazing.  Not many people want a bright, starkly lit space when they’re trying to relax.  Ending the day on a calming note can really make a huge difference to a good night’s sleep and therefore a good, positive start to a new day.

It’s #LEDeasy to create the right mood.

Have you switched your lighting to suit the mood of the room?  Let me know in the comments below or tweet me @AllSortsHere 🙂

Days out that are fun and educational

Days Out That Are Fun And Educational For The Family Rossall School
 

Days out that are fun and educational

Some days you can’t just sit around watching TV, you’ve got to get out, and take the kids for days out. It’s not hard finding fun things to do, but what about keeping their brain invested too? Rossall School have a few ideas that should tick both boxes as being fun, educational days out.

Days Out That Are Fun And Educational For The Family Rossall School

Zoo/Aquarium/Safari

Who doesn’t love animals? What better way to celebrate than by going to see a host of exotic beasts up close you wouldn’t normally see at home. There are plenty of dotted around the country, but how about Longleat Safari Park?  It’s the perfect example of a great day out; there is plenty to do around the grounds, see animal shows such as birds on display, chances to hold reptiles and see all the creepy crawlies up close, then finish it off by getting in your car and driving round the actual safari part, getting up-close and personal with the bigger, more impressive creatures.

Museum

Museums aren’t all just old paintings (not that there is anything wrong with that), but it’s not a bad idea to educate the kids in some famous artwork to encourage their creativity. There are loads of different exhibitions on offer, from Ancient Egypt, to dinosaurs to science and technology. There’s no limit to the amount of stuff, often all under the same roof. A perfect way to spend an afternoon and usually free entry!

Castles

There are literally hundreds of castles dotted around the UK.  They are a big part of our history but a good day out is the Northumberland Coastal Route where there are a bunch of castles still in good condition. There’s Bamburgh which is right by the beach, Warkworth, more ruins now and Alnwick, which has been used in a few films including a little known movie called Harry Potter. It also has a fantastic epic tree house and gardens where the kids can learn all different kinds of plants and flowers and there’s even a poisonous plants guided tour section.

Beamish

Speaking of the North East, there is also this brilliant open air museum which is practically a whole town frozen in time. Three times to be precise; The 1820s, 1900s and the 1940s. You can explore what life was like during those times with shops, farms, schools, blacksmiths (with a working blacksmith) and even doctors, dentists and the best part, a sweet shop where you can watch old-fashioned treats being made right in front of you. The staff play in character and can provide information about their respective roles and era.

‘Scrambled Heads: A Children’s Guide to Mental Health’ ~ Review

Mental health.  It can be a very sensitive subject to approach.  Taboo even.
And it can be especially tricky to talk to our children about.
If you let it.

 

But here’s a helping hand because Emily Palmer has written ‘Scrambled Heads: A Children’s Guide to Mental Health
which was inspired after her own struggles with her mental health as a child and young adult.
For a start, what a great title!  It sums up very well the subject matter, I feel.
And with simple, colourful pictures, it’s such an easy read – a coffee table book that you can read in one sitting when the moment or need arises.Scrambled heads white childrens guide to mental health wellbeing book review young minds virtually all sorts
Apart from the simple illustrations, what really grabs me about this book is that it’s engaging.  It’s reassuring.  It gives useful advice in a non-aggressive and non-patronising way (very important for children, especially young adults).
‘Scrambled Heads’ normalises mental health, which is vital for everyone.

 

I say everyone, because when you first read the sub-title ‘A Children’s Guide to Mental Health’, you might think, as I did, that it’s aimed purely at children.  But when you consider that this book can be read by anyone of any age, so children, their siblings, their relatives, their friends and their parents, that covers a lot of ground!

 

What’s worth remembering is that many, many children have parents who have mental health issues and this book could help them to understand their situation better.   This would have been a very handy book when I had depression.  Books are one of 5 ways you beat depression.
The length of the book is just right for picking up off the coffee table, bedside cabinet, shelf or wherever and having a quick recap as the need arises.

 

The price is very reasonable too at £5.99.  And with 10% of the profits of the first edition being donated to ‘Young Minds’, it’s even more reasonable and a small price to pay, I’d say.

 

If I could change one thing, I would put a little less emphasis on visits to hospital and medication, and more emphasis on cognitive therapy.

 

Although it doesn’t actually refer directly to medication it has pictures that are open to interpretation.  And when it comes to mental health, I suppose it’s heavily open to interpretation on all levels.  Such as how someone looks compared to how they’re feeling.  And that’s just for starters.

 

Overall, given the complexity of the subject of mental health, I do think that this book does an extremely good job of not alienating anyone, not patronising anyone, not making anyone feel ‘odd’ and above all, not being flippant about what is a very serious subject.

 

I would encourage our 7 year old to read this at some point as and when the need may arise, as a useful aide to understanding mental health.

I was sent this book at a discount for the purpose of a review but all words and opinions are my own.

 I created an unboxing vlog because Morse Toad very kindly gave me a discount for the purpose of this review and I chose the ‘Awesome Box’ for our daughter.

The reason being that we love to be positive and use empowering words in our house (and I secretly blatantly knew she would share her chocolatey stash with me us!).   I chose to add a picture of her with her cousins and this was great value at an extra £1.  That in itself is awesome, to add an even more personal touch and sending a strong message that they are all awesome.  When you order, the website says that you can take the picture out and pop it in a frame.  I thought that would be a lovely and unique touch and was intrigued to see how this would work.

~

When we received the parcel, this was my favourite feature.  You could easily slip the picture out of the box and pop it in a frame!  What an awesome idea…

The packaging appears to be sturdy enough to drop through a high letterbox without breaking up.  And there’s even a note on the box to keep the package out of the sun!  Once opened, there is  plastic cover that slots easily over the chocolate pieces.

Mine (or our daughter’s!) package arrived within 2 days of placing the order (which was done in the evening) and here’s her favourite part of it:

The picture of her with her cousins, the letters and hearts and the really yummy chocolate!   (all of it then really!)

When she saw the box with the picture inside, she was really excited and said she wanted to put the picture in a frame next to her bed.  How lovely!  She read the words and I took a moment to reaffirm to her that is awesome, so are her cousins and so are we!  Keen to have some chocolate, she took the sturdy plastic cover away (which was easy to do) and pointed out 2 pieces to have.

We both decided it was really smooth, yummy and most importantly, chocolatey!  Highly recommended! (and Daddy agreed when it was his turn to sample his pieces.

My favourite part:

Watching our daughter’s face when she opened the box to see the picture, letting her read the message and telling her that she IS awesome!

And also showing her that she could take the picture out.

Some other good points to note:

The chocolate does not contain alcohol and is kosha accredited. It does not contain eggs, and is gluten free.  This is good, quality chocolate and I’ll bet that not many messages stay in tact for long.  If they do, someone has very good willpower!

What I would change:

If I could change one thing about the packaging, it would be to put the chocolate pieces in a ‘rigid’ tray within the box.  By that I mean something to keep the pieces in their rightful places.  Not only would this stop the remaining pieces from rattling around, it would keep the message making sense (in the early stages when not too many pieces are gone!)

But really, this is a great value-for-money product.  I can see this will become very popular once word gets around.

Panda Vita Organic Baobab powder ~ Review & discount code

Panda Vita contacted me to ask if I would like to review their organic Baobab powder and I immediately agreed because anything that is 100% natural and unprocessed has got to be a good thing.

panda-vita-tick-nutritional-food-supplement-natural-wellbeing-discount-code

 

Firstly, I was impressed with the packaging.  It came in a modest sized envelope which not only means less waste of course.  But it also means I wasn’t battling with unnecessary parcel tape to get to my ‘loot’.  (You can see my ‘unenveloping here’.)

The envelope has a rip off seal at the top but then to keep the powder fresh, you have a zip-lock type seal which is a fantastic idea.

As the PandaVita website says, Baobab powder is a tasty and nutritious powder that dehydrates naturally inside the baobab fruit. The fruit grows on magnificent trees in AFRICA. It has a delightful citrusy flavour and is an excellent source of Vitamin C, Potassium, Magnesium and Calcium. It also a high fibre content.

On opening the packet, I set to, making a drink.  I was intrigued what it tasted like in water alone, and added the correct mix to the water.  At first, I wasn’t sure how quickly, if at all, the small lumps would dissolve.  But I’m pleased to say they were gone rapidly with a good ‘whisky’ type mix with a normal teaspoon.

panda-vita-nutritional-food-supplement-natural-wellbeing

So, with some trepidation, I sipped my drink.  I say ‘trepidation’ because after seeing the small lumps, I was warey that it may be quite powdery on my tongue.  And you know what?  It wasn’t!  The citrussy taste came through quite strongly (but not overpowering) and this may have taken the texture away.  I tried levelling the teaspoons the next time and sure enough, not so strong and actually very pleasant.

I didn’t actually find time to do any baking with the baobab powder but can imagine that it would be a nice addition and give any recipe a little ‘twist’.

I did find time to sprinkle a little on my daily cereal (oh how I love my breakfast!).  With a bit of a stir, I enjoyed the twist in the taste and I liked knowing that I was giving my day a kick start with the baobab.  Great feeling!

While I can’t say that I noticed my energy levels increase (I may have to give it more time), I can say that I recommend you try this organic powder.  At £4.99 for a 50g packet, I’d say it’s worth the money and I’d be prepared to use it daily.  And Panda Vita are very kindly giving you a 15% discount by using VAS15 (no expiry date).  You can shop their range of products here.

Pure Chimp Super Tea ~ Review

Are you a tea lover?

Great!

Have you ever tried green tea?

If the answer’s yes, read on for a product that may interest you.

If the answer’s no, read on for a new experience just for you!

~

purechimp-green-tea-review-collab-wellbeing

Pure Chimp is packed full of 100% natural goodness.

Yes it’s true, it’s all goodness that goes into this green tea.

Just one teaspoon serving is the equivalent to 10 cups of regular green tea.

So, start your day the Pure Chimp green tea way and you’re off to a good start!

It’s grown under cover for the last two weeks before picking, which fills it with extra goodness.

The tea leaves are then carefully ground down to form a fine powder which ensures that you consume all of the natural goodness!

~

But how do you make it?

You simply mix 1/2 a level teaspoon (around 1g) with hot water, juice or smoothies.  It can also be used in baking.

What’s it like?

When you open the packet, there is a really fine powder of velvety green just waiting for you to dip your tea spoon into.  It had the look and feel of quality as a small cloud of the powder got airborne (and didn’t make me sneeze, hurray!).

I mixed it well, though I didn’t make it frothy like it suggests you can on the packaging and I found it needed a good dollop of honey to take the powdery texture away.  I do like things bitter, however Pure Chimp was a little too bitter for my tastebuds, even with the honey.  I do try to avoid sweetening my drinks, for health reasons and also because I don’t really like the sweet taste.  For that reason, I was reluctant to add more than a dollop of honey, though I needed to really, for taste.

For those who don’t mind adding to make their drink sweeter or don’t mind the intense texture of the power, this drink is ideal for that 100% natural goodness that comes with green tea.

Pure Chimp have a good range of products available at reasonable prices  (the Super Tea retails at £6.95) and I was impressed that this simply came in an envelope too.  No over-the-top unnecessary packaging, which is good to see.

Our Jam Packed movie adventure ~ #BoredomBuster Review

 

When this box came through the letterbox, I was very excited…

jam-packed-make-create-do-inspire-imagination-boredom-buster-activity

I had been expecting my Jam Packed Craft movie adventure box… well strictly speaking it was for our little girl but I was looking forward to joining in too.

I immediately loved the colourful outer layer and it caught our daughter’s eye too.  She wanted to know what was inside and so did I!

jam-packed-collage-make-create-do-inspire-imagination-boredom-buster-activity

Containing everything we needed to make a home-made movie adventure, the box really and truly was jam packed with craft supplies!  That said, as the activity went on, I was really impressed with how little waste there was and that we had to use the box itself.  What a great idea!

Inside we found:

chalks for the clapper board (I think that’s what it’s called…!)

crayons for decorating the stage, curtains and audience

paint for the ‘stage’ (though our little girl preferred to colour it in and decorate it with the glittery star stickers supplied)

glue, a template for the ‘screen’, a film strip and even… get this

POPCORN!  Yes, really!

So there really was everything we needed.

~

First she coloured in the curtain surround

hoh-jam-packed-make-create-do-inspire-imagination-boredom-buster-activity

Then she created the film strip and couldn’t decide on Sleeping Beauty or Jack and the Beanstalk…

hoh-jam-packed-film-strip-make-create-do-inspire-imagination-boredom-buster-activity

There was the popcorn preparation

hoh-jam-packed-collage-make-create-do-inspire-imagination-boredom-buster-activity

…which intrigued our daughter because she had never heard popcorn popping in a microwave before.  We all tucked in to what was delicious popcorn!  Seriously, it’s one of the best I’ve ever tasted (5 stars here!).  And left a handful for the audience!

Next came the all important audience and setting the scene

hoh-jam-packed-setting-up-make-create-do-inspire-imagination-boredom-buster-activity

Before the show itself… (see below for the vlog!) #Exciting!

~

This activity took the best part of an afternoon to create, which was just the right amount of time.  There were full instructions which were a little tricky to follow at the beginning with cutting the template out.  But really, our daughter had little input from me.  Then she was off creating!

Jam Packed Craft boxes are  ‘little boxes bursting with big ideas’ and this was certainly bursting – full to the brim!  I loved that this was a fresh idea for an activity.  There are adventure boxes and mini kits available.  I love the Fairy Door and bracelet mini kits – I know our daughter would too!

I for one have never seen anything quite like it before and that makes the adventure boxes worth the retail price of £12 (if this box is anything to go by) because you don’t have to add anything to the box at all.  Just imagination and perhaps a nice cuppa to go with the popcorn! 🙂

We had so much fun and it was great for bonding.  Although our daughter was quite happy to be left to her own devices for the colouring and sticking parts.

The creation is currently on her desk because she’s so proud of it and she even cut her first very short vlog (possibly the shortest vlog in the history of vlogs!… but it’s a good one!)

She’s clearly a star in the making because when she had cut that one, she vlogged another (including an alternative version of ‘Fe Fi Fo Fum’.  And we’ll just skirt around me forgetting the storyline!.. 🙂

From our experience, I’d highly recommend Jam Packed Craft boxes for those boredom buster moments, or any moment in fact!
