Review ~ personalised photo gifts from Bags of Love

There’s a picture on my hard drive which I took myself.  It’s not perfect and it’s not going to win any awards.  But that doesn’t matter.  What matters is that it holds memories.
It’s a picture that was taken of the sunset on holiday last year.  The colours came out beautifully and it makes me smile.  I told hubby that it’d look great on a canvas.
So I was really happy when Bags of Love got in touch and offered me one of their products to review.  They’re a personalised photo gift company and when I saw that they do canvases, I knew exactly what to choose, although I could have chosen from personalised clothing, kitchenware, homeware, luggage…
Anything you can think of that can be personalised and I reckon it’ll be on their website!
The design process is very simple.  You upload your picture, alter any dimensions, then you preview and you’re good to go.  I chose a 50 x 40.

And here it is…

Review Of Personalised Photo Gifts From Bags Of Love Canvas

The packaging

The canvas was securely packaged and easy to hang (the screws are included).

Worth the money?

I can only speak for the RRP of the canvas of my size which was £60 including p&p.  It’s very good value and excellent quality.

If I could change anything…

I don’t think I would.  The website was easy to navigate, the order process was straight-forward and you get a reminder email if you haven’t completed your order.  Nothing not to like here really!

Don’t forget to follow Bags of Love on social media:

twitter, instagram, facebook, pinterest and google +..

What would you choose from their website?

*I was sent the canvas to review free of charge but all opinions are my own.

Review Mobile Phone Sports Arm Band From The Caro_e_ Range Hunkemoller Mobile Phone Holder

Review ~ mobile phone sports arm band from the Caro_e_ range

I’ve recently started the Couch to 5k running app again.  I say ‘again’ because I completed it before, several years ago, and successfully ran the Race for Life off the back of it.  (for non-UK readers, Race for Life is an event where you can walk, run or even dance to raise money for research into beating cancer.)  So there I was, in a position to complete 5k in 45 minutes and then the school holidays came along and then I got bronchitis which stopped any running in its tracks… appropriate use of words there!

Review ~ ‘Feel Stress Free’ app from Thrive

 Feel Stress Free App From Thrive For Your Wellbeing Balance And Zen

Review ~ ‘Feel Stress Free’ app from Thrive 

What do you think of when you come across the words ‘stress-free’ and ‘thrive’?
For me, it’s being relaxed yet energetic, being given the space to grow and reach my potential.
When I was given the opportunity to review the Thrive Feel Stress Free app, I thought it was a great name and a great concept, partly because it focuses on mindfulness and CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy).  The experts at Thrive claim to be able to manage your mental health and relax you in just 5 minutes.  An impressive claim!

Review ~ Prestige Flowers

Prestige Flowers Review Delivery Service Special Occasions Bouquets

 Review ~ Prestige Flowers

Who doesn’t love to receive flowers?  I know that I do!  They lift my mood, make me smile and brighten my home.  I also like to give them occasionally to say thank you, thinking of you or happy birthday.  Flowers just speak volumes don’t they?
When I arrived home one day, I had a ‘sorry we missed you card’ posted through the letterbox.  And my shoulders dropped a little because I had been expecting a bouquet of fresh flowers to be delivered from Prestige Flowers, and I hadn’t been able to stay in to take collection of them.
Prestige Flowers Review Delivery Service Special Occasions Bouquets
As I read the card, expecting to see that the courier would try again or maybe even to collect them from the local post office the next working day, I gave a little ‘whoop’.  They had been left by our back door.  Sure enough, an exciting looking box was sitting there patiently by my back door… and a bemused cat (our cat I might add!)

Book Review ~ ‘Outdoor Things to do’ #BoredomBuster

Anti Boredom Book Of Brilliant Outdoors Things To Do Andy Seed Bloomsbury

 Book review ~ ‘Outdoor Things To Do’ book

The most obvious point of The Anti-boredom Book of Brilliant Outdoor Things To Do book is that it encourages children to go outside.
That’s one box ticked.
But what if you haven’t got a particularly big or ‘gardeny’ garden?  You know, the ‘backyard’ type garden that is concrete and doesn’t lend itself to much adventure?  The garden without any grass.  Well, there’s always the local park.  Sometimes though, it’s nice to just hang out at home and potter around isn’t it?
 And for days like that, this book also lends a hand!
How?  Because it’s also got a section on indoors rainy day activities.
Another box ticked!
