Free Cinema Access For Carers With A CEA Card

by Heidi Scrimgeour in Deals on 27 July, 2015 at 1:18 pm

Free Cinema Access For Carers With A CEA Card

If you're a carer for a disabled person aged over eight years old, did you know that you can get free access to the cinema when you're accompanying them?

The disabled person needs to be in receipt of disability benefits and there's an administration fee of £6.00 per application but that's still less than the average price of a cinema ticket, so well worth shelling out for.

All you need to do to get your free cinema access is visit www.ceacard.co.uk and complete the on-line application. There's also an option to apply via the post but since you're reading this online, I'm guessing applying online is handy enough.

You can also click here to check whether your local cinema is participating in the scheme.

The application is for the the disabled person so any responsible adult can be considered the carer - you don't need to be in receipt of disability benefits.

The CEA Card is a national card scheme developed for UK cinemas by the UK Cinema Association (UKCA). It helps participating cinemas to ensure they make reasonable adjustments for disabled guests when they go to the cinema; in particular it ensures a complimentary ticket for someone to go with them.

Critics Say 14 Year Old Face of Dior Is Too Young

by Heidi Scrimgeour in Misc on 27 July, 2015 at 12:48 pm

Critics Say 14 Year Old Face of Dior Is Too Young

If you're a lover of fashion and particularly a fan of Dior, then it won't have escaped your attention that the iconic fashion house has appointed a new model to be the face of its label. There's one small problem: Dior's new darling is only 14 years old.

Metro reports:

MP Caroline Nokes, who leads the parliamentary group on body image, said of the move: ‘Regulations need to be adhered to when it comes to using underage models and the industry should not being going down this road. Use of this young girl is just a disappointing step backwards.’

It's an amazing rise to stardom for 14-year old Sofia Mechetner - who was spotted in the Dior shop in Paris by creative director Raf Simons and has since signed a two-year contract worth £170,000 - but critics say designers should not be using children to front womenswear advertising campaigns.

I'm inclined to agree. Something seems off about the idea of flicking through a fashion magazine only to be bombarded by images of little girls - what's aspirational about that?

And as a a mother, I'd be pretty horrified by the thought of my daughter entering the fashion world at the tender age of 14. But what's your view? Is 14 too young to be a world-famous fashion model, or should we all lighten up and let Sofia enjoy her moment of fame? We'd love to hear your thoughts over on our Facebook page.

Tesco To Remove Ribena, Capri-Sun & Other Sugary Drinks From It's Shelves

by Nada in Misc on 27 July, 2015 at 12:25 pm

Tesco To Remove Ribena, Capri-Sun & Other Sugary Drinks From It's Shelves

I cannot believe what I have read this morning. Tesco are to remove added-sugar drinks from their shelves. That will include brands like Ribena, Capri-Sun, Rubicon and Jucee. It's fair to say, that this is a bold move in what they state is to 'help prevent childhood obesity'.

From 7th September, we will see that brands like Ribena and Capri-Sun have disappeared from the shelves. As the children return to school, Tesco will only sell no-added-sugar drinks in the kids' juice category.

You have to wonder, are Tesco removing parents, the right of choosing what they wish to give their children? I have friends that would rather give their children sugary drinks over artificial sweetener laden ones.

I can see both sides of it. Whilst I welcome that Tesco are stepping towards helping the UK's childhood obesity problem, I can see problems with people feeling like they are being dictated to, in a way.

It is blatantly obvious that the carbonated soft drink brands are not being addressed in the same way, even though it is said that a single can of Coca-Cola can contain as much as six teaspoons of sugar. One could speculate because of the brand power and money of such big companies, that it is highly unlikely that a supermarket like Tesco would take on such a big company.

We can't help but wonder if other Supermarkets will follow suit. What do you think about this big move by Tesco? Do you think that this will just lead to other 'unhealthy' items being banned?

Disney Frozen Fever Birthday Party Anna/Elsa Doll £11.67 @ Amazon

I have never seen these Disney Frozen Fever Birthday Party Dolls before but they are a lovely twist on the original ones. Since Frozen was so popular, your little super fans will more than likely have most merchandise from the original film. That's why I think these are a great idea for those that do have everything Frozen. They sell for £15.99 in most places but Amazon have them for only £11.67, which we think is a good price.

You have the choice of Disney Frozen Fever Birthday Party Anna or Elsa. I am guessing that the Elsa ones will sell out first as she is the star of the show. Both character dolls come in fancy dresses that are a variation on their traditional wear.

You will get FREE delivery on these dolls if you have Amazon Prime or if your spend £20 or more. Why not buy them both to get that FREE delivery? If you don't have Amazon Prime and you wish to buy just one of the dolls then delivery is £3.30.

Chad Valley Spray N Splash Turtle/Snake Sprinkler £2.49 @ Argos

Last year, Argos sold A LOT of the Chad Valley Spray 'N' Splash Whale. Now it seems like that water squirting little guy is nowhere to be seen. Fret not as he has a replacement, in the form of the Chad Valley Spray 'N' Splash Turtle. The Chad Valley Sprinkler Snake is still on the go. Both of these fun water toys have been reduced from £4.99 to just £2.49.

The Chad Valley Spray 'N' Splash Turtle and the Chad Valley Sprinkler Snake both work simply by attaching the garden hose to them. These make great, affordable birthday gifts.

If you are lucky enough to have some sun, then you need to make the most of it and grab either one of these for the kids. Where I am, we have had a constant sprinkler on the go, called rain. Kids love water toys, and some of my happiest memories were involving running through the sprinkler.

You can Reserve and Collect the Chad Valley Spray 'N' Splash Turtle/Snake Sprinkler for FREE from an Argos near you or pay £3.95 to have it delivered to your home.
