Introducing My BritMums Live 2015 Sponsor

Last year I attended my first ever BritMums Conference and thoroughly enjoyed the two day event. I was keen to attend again but was worried I would be unable to do so due to finances. Thanks very kindly to my Sponsors Dry Like Me I'm delighted to say I will be attending again this year.

Dry Like Me are a company created by Mums for Mums supplying potty training tips and advice, along with award winning potty training Dry Like Me Pads that fit snuggly into potty trainers pants to add an absorbant layer giving the child added comfort should they have an accident or two. Founders Jude and Di also run a successful Potty Training Live campaign to help support parents and children through the potty training process at the same time as others in the same situation. This is how I was first introduced to Dry Like Me last year.
I'm delighted to be working with Dry Like Me again this year on an exciting new campaign they have coming up and am thrilled they have chosen to sponsor me to attend BritMums 2015. I hope to see some of you there and will of course keep you up to date with the latest from Dry Like Me.

You've got to love a Bargain!

I love a bargain and always have. I also love shopping for the monkeys as I've previously mentioned so when I spotted these gorgeous Hatley pumps for little monkey I could not resist getting them for him! They were only £7 in TKmaxx. Currently too big for him but come late spring/summer I know they will look great on.
Sunday saw us going to our local shopping outlet village and we promised the monkeys we would see if we could get them both new trainers. Little monkey was delighted when I picked these Spiderman ones up for him to try. They light up which he loves and were a steal at £12.99 a pair from Sports Direct. Easy for him to put on himself too.
We found big monkey a pair of Adidas trainers which seem to fit his feet best. He has narrow feet and they come up narrow, so he helped to chose a pair he liked and tried them on. Slighlty more expensive at £26.99, they look and fit great.
I've been looking in the sales for winter coats as you can get some great deals and wanted to try and get some to put away for next winter for each monkey. I try to avoid dark plain colours as I think if they are wearing brighter coloured coats they are easier to spot across the playground and out and about, when playing etc. We browsed Trespass and picked up great coats for both monkeys.
The 'Comic' design one for little monkey is so cool. I don't hink I'll have any issues picking him out of a crowd in it! A huge bargain at £22 instead of £74.
Being older we went for a more plain design for big monkey but his coat is nice and bright too and had about £20 off. Another Trespass steal at under £25.
Now at that point I thought we were done but little did I know when I did my food shop Monday morning that Asda would have a sale on their George clothing! I picked up a few bits for big monkey. He is currently starting to grow out of his current size so I got the next size up. The thin puffer jacket was actually only £4! The Star Wars hoodie about £4 also. He can't wait to wear that but it is two sizes bigger than his current size!
I got the same jacket again for little monkey (how could I not at only £4), also a Star Wars hoodie and then some tops. The turquoise one was only £1 and the twin pack of red and blue striped ones were £3! He gasped when he saw the Fireman Sam hoodie. Bless him.
Of course, the good thing about buying the larger sized clothes are that once big monkey has grown out of them, all being well they can be kept for little monkey! Double bargain bonus all round!

February Degustabox

It's that time of month again, no not THAT time! Degustabox time!
Shall we see what's in the box! A rather yummy selection I think you'd agree.
What a great selection of goodies and my type of treats too! Shame I'm eating healthily! Guess the monkeys and hubby are in for a treat then.
These chocolate brownie bites from the American Muffin Company are gluten and wheat free. Very delicious and only £2.50 for a box of six. They did not last long here.
The Melba Thins are an ideal snack for early morning feasting or a late night supper with a favourite topping. I'm thinking peanut butter! They are £1.39 a box.
Using 100% natural ingredients this Laimon Fresh lightly sparkling lemon, lime and mint soft drink tastes very refreshing. Very minty but nice. It's £1.99 a bottle.
I've yet to try this Peanut Hottie but will be having a little taste that's for sure! The worlds first peanut butter flavoured hot drink. I can't wait. £3.00 a tub.
Lily O'Brien's cocoa cookie crunch. A new range of luxury snacking pouches for chocolate lovers. Hubby has tucked into these already! Priced at £2.00 a pouch.
These Beet It sport pro-elite bars are the worlds number 1 natural nitrate brand. An aquired taste! They are £1.85.
Luckily none of us have a nut intolerance as this Whole Earth three nut butter sounds and looks delicious! No added sugar and made with the finest natural ingredients. It's suitable for vegetarians and vegans. It's £3.00 a tub.
We love the Schwarts flavour shots and are looking forward to tying these two new flavours. There are eight different ones to choose from in total. They are £1.40 each available from most supermarkets.
This Jack Links beef snack is one for the Mr. The best quality beef is used in this on the go snack. Priced at £1.39 a bar.

A delightful mix of foods this month and as always exciting to open the box when it arrives to see what's inside. If you subscribe you can get £3 off the usual fee when you register. Just use this code 8X10A.

Week 9 Project 365 Round Up

Day 53. Up early to go to the gm and this is what met me on the car! Gloriously sunny but very frosty.
Day 54. Another glorious day we went to Pilates then went with big monkey and a friend for coffee and elevenses.
Day 55. Sat using the laptop and eating lunch little monkey was teaching me how to play a Duplo game on the iPad! 
Day 56. I was served pizza, cake and coffee by little monkey at lunch time.
Day 57. With both monkeys at school I snuck in half an hour at the gym and got weighed in too! 
Day 58. A little detour on the school run to grab this gorgeous shot! 
Day 59. Big monkey at football today! Poor quality photo as cropped & zoomed in to cut out other players. 

We've had a good first week back after half term and both monkeys are back to fighting fit and healthy. Daddy has man flu now though! 
Hope you've all had a great week.
