Jenkins & Hustwit Farmhouse Cake Review and Giveaway 189

Jenkins & Hustwit Farmhouse Cake Review and Giveaway is a paid collaboration. As much as I love baking cakes, I also love eating cakes that I haven’t baked and often that can lead to disappointment when you wish you had just made it yourself. During most of this year whilst she has been unable to leave the house, my Mother in Law has been a baking demon with weekly deliveries of sweet treats to our home. So we have been really lucky with no buying any!

Sportpax review and giveaway 112

Both of my boys are sports mad, especially football.  I am lucky that it takes no encouragement on my part to get them outside in t he fresh air playing and with the lighter nights they are outside playing football or cricket with their friends until they are called in. They both either scoot or walk to and from school and if they are taking the scooter then they really need a backpack for their school things (books, pencil case, PE kit etc) and this is where these fab Sportpax come in.  Sportpax are backpacks with iconic, fun designs in the shape of sports balls.

Back to School with Tesco Clothing and £15 voucher to give away 24

have to admit the set that we got from Tesco Clothing was a godsend last year and the shirts and polo’s washed really well. As last years trousers didnt have adjustable wastes they fell down on my stick insect children, but this year they sent us a pair of the finnest trousers for each of the boys, which have adjustable waists and are a wool blend, so quite luxurious and hard wearning.

Not only did they send a uniform set for each of the boys, but they also gave me a £30 voucher (which I have spent on a dress for The Mad Blog Awards).

I also have a code to give a lucky reader and commenter their own £15 voucher for Clothing at Tesco. Al you have to do is leave a comment on this post and I will draw the winner by randum number generator tomorrow night (29/08/11) at 8.0opm.
