Fruit Bowl Snacks - Review & Competition


We all know that toddlers love to snack and how important it is for them to do so a long with their three set meals a day. Snack time is an important time in our house and over the past few years Noah's tried so many different types and brands of snacks. Although he isn't picky with what he eats there are a few brands which are his favourite, Fruit Bowl being one of those.



I was recently asked if Noah would like to review some of their snacks and with them already being a firm favourit I was more than happy to accept. We were sent 4 multi packs of Raspberry, Mango, Blackcurrant and Strawberry Fruit Flakes and 2 multi packs of their new Fruit Peelers in Blackcurrant and Strawberry flavour. 

Prior to this review Noah has only tried their yogurt coated fruit flakes so both the Fruit Flakes and Fruit Peelers were new to him. When they arrived he recognised the Fruit Bowl logo straight away and literally wanted to try them all at once. Both the Fruit Flakes and Peelers have been popular with him but he's fond of the Raspberry Flakes in particular and always seemed to go for those first. We've found both to be the perfect mid morning or mid afternoon snack and they are also ideal for packing for on the go.




For some (fortunately not for us) getting fruit into your diet can be difficult. In fact, research shows that over 30 million adults don’t eat the recommended five portions of fruit and vegetables each day and most worryingly nearly two-thirds of children (63 per cent) don’t get the optimum amount of fruit and veg in their diets. To help make eating fruit a much more fun and appealing snacking option, Fruit Bowl has created a range of tasty fruit treats that provide a great way to help you reach your five a day. The Fruit Bowl range provides a variety of irresistibly tasty and fun to eat fruit snacks to munch between meals or curb after school tummy rumblings. They’re made with real fruit in fact, Fruit Bowl Fruit Peelers are so fruity they even count as one of your 5 a day, plus there’s no added sugar.  

All Fruit Bowl fruit snacks are gluten free and suitable for vegetarians. A great addition to lunchboxes they can also be added to your favourite baking recipes or sprinkled on top of breakfast cereals and desserts as a delicious treat. Prices start at £2.00 per multi pack and you can purchase Fruit Bowl products from Tesco, Asda and other supermarkets.

Top 5 Summer Favourites


Believe it or not we are now in Summer! We've not seen much sun yet here in Lancashire but fortunately we were lucky enough to go to Majorca last month where we did get to enjoy some rays. It's amazing what a bit of sun can do for your mood and I always feel like it does the world of good. With this in mind and with the rain currently pattering on my windows I thought I would put together a post all about my Summer Wishlist in the hopes that it will coax the sun back out of hiding.

1. Tropical Print Pleat Midi - £55.00
You can't beat a bold and bright dress in the warmer months and this sleek number from Oasis just screams Summer to me. It's one of those dresses which can easily be styled for evening wear and just as easily for daytime too. I adore the tropical feel of the print and I also like the delicate pleating and belt detail.

2. OPI Live Love Carnival - £12.50
When you go all out in a nice new dress you need to go all out with the nails too! Splurging out on a bit of OPI does just that and I'm loving all the coral shades at the moment cause not only are they bang on trend but they also go with pretty much everything too! 

3. Gabor Karen Wedges - £85.00 
I've fallen head over heels with these women sandals as again just like the dress they could be worn during the day or on a night out too. I adore the straw effect heel and also like the fact that they aren't too high. The leather insoles can ensure maximum comfort too and that's just what I need! 

4. Jean Paul Gaultier Perfume - £25.50
I'm big on perfume and this scent from Jean Paul Gaultier is a new favourite of mine. It's quite a feminine and sensual scent with top notes of orange, pear and rose and base notes of musk and vanilla. It seems to lift my mood whenever I wear it and with the scent being quite delicate it's the perfect perfume for Summer.

5. Gold Straw Shopper - £22.00
Last but not least this gorgeous tote bag is on my to buy list as I'm partial to a little bit of gold in my accessories. I don't think I'd team it with the dress on the wishlist but I really have to get my hands on it because it would go with so much I have already! 


Do any of these items take your fancy?

This week has been a funny old week. We started it off with a bang on Sunday as I'd won a night away at The Inn on the Lake in the Lake District. I decided to use it as a 30th birthday and Fathers Day treat for Nick and I'm so glad we did. Included in our stay was not just the 4 star accommodation which was absolutely beautiful but also tea and scones on arrival, a three course al a carte meal and a full Cumbrian breakfast in the morning. It was incredible, we had such a great time and it was just really nice to have that one on one time too whilst Noah spent the night at my Mum's. The rest of the week went by in a blur and we didn't really do much really despite the usual, visiting family, playing outside, shopping and what not! Life of riley!


What have you been up to this week?

Bratz Remix - Competition


A couple of weeks ago we were sent one of the new dolls from the Bratz Remix collection and a pair of Bratz headphones to celebrate a fun new campaign #tweetabeatThe Bratz love music and this collection is all about their favourite playlists. They love mixing up their everyday fashions by accessorising with oversized headphones which are inspired by their spiritual animals.

As part of the campaign we were asked the following questions which were actually quite fun to answer because my little one and I love the same songs and are always having a boogie to them! 
What song makes you happy? Happy - Pharrell What song makes you want to dance? Uptown Funk - Bruno Mars What song makes you want to sing? Lush Life - Zara Larrson What song reminds you of your favourite people? I Can't Feel My Face - The Weeknd

Each doll comes with a full outfit, one pair of shoes, oversized headphones with detachable ears, a smartphone and a brush. As with every collection of Bratz doll they each have their own style and taste and the Remix girls are no different. 


Yasmin loves relaxing in her peaceful spot to acoustic covers.
Jade
 listens to high-energy electro-pop music while hitting the skate park.
Cloe
 is all about the hottest new tunes on the charts.
Sasha'
s playlist is filled with dance remixes of hip-hop and pop crossovers.


To continue our #tweetabeat party I also have a Bratz Remix doll to giveaway to one lucky reader! To enter all you need to do is use the Gleam form below. Good luck and don't forget to enter my other blog competitions
