Prices From £1 @ Miss Selfridge

by Luschka van Onselen in Deals on 22 December, 2014 at 9:45 pm

Prices From £1 @ Miss SelfridgeOne for the grown ups, for those moments you don't want to feel like a mum! Miss Selfridge has up to 70% off at the moment, with sale prices starting from £1.

Every now and then it's nice to step out of the mum-role and let your hair down. For times like that, sales like these are fabulous. From socks and briefs for £1, to costume jewellery for £2, and loads of other accessories for up to £3.50.

Tops and blouses come in from £4, and gift sets from £5 and even a maxi dress for £5.

Honestly you could fill your baskets for not a whole lot of money!

There's  no quick pick up option, so click and collect will take 4 - 7 days and cost you £2.95, while standard delivery is £3.95 and won't get you the goods in time for Christmas. If you're hoping to scoop up a bargain for Christmas, you'll need to pop into your nearest store.

Pregnancy Journal £3 Delivered @ Jojo Maman Bebe

by Luschka van Onselen in Deals on 22 December, 2014 at 8:31 pm

Pregnancy Journal £3 Delivered @ Jojo Maman BebeJojo Maman Bebe have reduced the price of their pregnancy journal from £ 9.99 to £3, and that includes delivery. If you have pregnant friends or are pregnant yourself it's a fantastic price drop.

My first daughter's pregnancy saw me making weekly - if not daily - notes about every emotion, thought, twinge and change in my body, mind and life, despite working full time. By the time my second daughter came along, I was so busy working just part time, but chasing a toddler and maintaining some sort of order in the house, her journal lay barely touched for months and months. I'm trying to make up for it in other ways though ;)

The soft back journal from Jojo Maman Bebe is designed to keep all your important information in one place. They've included lots of space to record essential information such as antenatal appointments and a week by week section so you can follow your babies development.

This would make a lovely pregnancy gift too.

 HEADS UP: Sale Preview Starts Tues 23rd @ Mothercare

Are you already a member of My Mothercare? If you are you will already know that they send you exclusive invites to preview the Sales a full 24 hours before anyone else - and the Sale Preview starts tomorrow Tuesday 23rd December!

The last big sale could be accessed by signing in and it recognised whether you were already registered with them, and on a previous occasion you had to get an individual link sent by email. Either way if you want to access the Sale Preview 24 hours before it goes live online to all on Christmas Eve then you just need to sign up.

Click here to sign up to My Mothercare, and you get e-coupons sent to you along with the early sale access and 20% off toys on your child's birthday. All you need to do is give your email address and your child's/children's date of birth or your due date.

We have no details yet of what is included in the sale or how big the reductions are, but we're pretty excited at the thought of getting first pick of the bargains. Considering they already have up to 60% off toys, and 50% off maternity wear they are either going to have to reduce further or discount a lot more lines!

As soon as we have more details we will let you know. If you were wondering about the sale in stores it will start on Boxing Day. Either way it's definitely worth a look. In the meantime check your emails for your invite!

The Big Winter Sale - up to 60% Off @ JoJo Maman Bebe

by Lisa Hayes in Deals on 22 December, 2014 at 6:06 pm

The Big Winter Sale - up to 60% Off @ JoJo Maman Bebe

JoJo Maman Bebe have started their big Sale this afternoon, and they have reductions of up to 60% across the whole site. Also, everything at JoJo Maman Bebe has Free Standard UK Delivery with no minimum spend. The Sale will also be in their stores from 27th December.

The website is running a bit slowly at the moment, simply because of the volume of traffic as the sale has only just gone live. I can understand the rush to take a look though - their products are very good quality, and their normal prices reflect that, so a sale is big news. Expect the good stuff to go pretty quickly!

It's hard to pick highlights from such a wide ranging sale, but the Girl's Dresses are particularly good value. The cheapest is now £8 reduced down from £20, and there are quite a few to choose from that would be great as party dresses. There are definitely much better bargains to be had in the girls wear than in boys clothes, and a much wider range too.

The Maternity Wear has some really good bargains. Trousers start from £5, Dresses from £15, an there are some really good prices on nursing bras and tops too, from just £10.

They sell lots of other things too, all grouped under 'Products', and it's all sorts of handy accessories like buggy clips, backpacks, seat liners, feeding equipment, nursery accessories, toys, and a miscellaneous assortment of things that aren't covered in the clothing sections.

As well as the main sale they have a selection of limited time offers until 7th January only. I really like the wall stickers that are reduced to £10 - the giraffe height chart is my favourite. That one would look lovely in my toddler's room. :)

30% Off Happy Hopperz, now from £17.49 @ Amazon

by Lisa Hayes in Deals on 22 December, 2014 at 5:05 pm

30% Off Happy Hopperz, now from £17.49 @ Amazon

If you still need a last minute gift and you buy today you can still get things delivered before Christmas from Amazon...just. The Happy Hopperz inflatable bounce on toys are one of today's Deals Of The Day and have 30% off reducing them from around £25 - £26 to £17.49 - £17.99. That price includes Free Delivery if you don't need it before Christmas, if you do you will need to pay extra for the Next Day Delivery Service.

Happy Hopperz are bright inflatable bounce toys for young children that come in many different styles and colours. The ones reduced today are the Pink Cow, the Blue Bull, and the Pink and Blue Dogs.

The design of Happy Hopperz is supposed to help with stability and balance for young kids, as opposed to the ball shapes of space hopper type bouncers, making it safer and easier to play on. They quickly inflate and deflate and can be used both indoors and outdoors.

They are recommended for ages 12 months to 30 months, although one reviewer says he uses the Pink Cow for the morning commute... (I think 'Mark' may be messing with us...) "I use this everyday to get to work and it's still going strong. The office is only about a mile from our house and with a bit of effort I can get there in about 15 minutes. I have fallen off a couple of times but passers by always help me back on and on my way. Wouldn't recommend for longer journeys - car, bus or train would be more suitable." You have to love the reviews on Amazon. :)

Hello Kitty Junior Duvet Cover Set £3 @ Asda!

by Lisa Hayes in Deals on 22 December, 2014 at 3:53 pm

Hello Kitty Junior Duvet Cover Set £3 @ Asda!

You'll need to be quick to grab this one, but if your little one is in a toddler or junior bed then there is a bargain for them at Asda right now. The Hello Kitty Junior Duvet Set is on sale for just £3!

This is smaller than a single size, so don't go buying it thinking it will fit a regular bed! It's made of a polycotton mix and can be machine washed and tumble dried.

It's not going to get to you before Christmas, but it's a fantastic price and well worth getting as a spare for £3. Click and Collect is Free, or delivery charges start at £2.95.

Grab them quick before they go!

Thank you to hulahoop2k @ HUKD.

Maternity Wear Sale @ Isabella Oliver

by Lisa Hayes in Deals on 22 December, 2014 at 3:04 pm

Maternity Wear Sale @ Isabella Oliver

Maternity Wear has certainly got much more stylish over the years, and Isabella Oliver have some beautiful designs. If you haven't heard of them before they are an independent company that was recently named Maternity Fashion Brand Of The Year. They are a little more expensive than the cut price clothing you can get in supermarkets and in some high street stores, but at Sale time they become a much better buy.

The Sale is up to 50% off and covers all their maternity clothes, but their dresses in particular are really gorgeous. They have very clever designs like their own wrap around dress which can be worn in so many different ways and will see you right through your pregnancy without ever looking too baggy or too stretched - you adjust the fit around the bump very easily. I wore one through both of my pregnancies, and it was just about the most comfortable thing I wore.

Some of their dresses are smart enough to use as formal or party wear, and others are more comfy and casual looking. They also have reductions across Nursing Wear, Maternity Underwear, Tops, Jeans and Trousers, Coats and Jackets and Accessories. Standard Delivery charges are from £3.95.

If you are expecting, or know someone who is, then the Isabella Oliver sale is well worth a look.

Spend on the Sale and get up to £15 in vouchers @ Mamas & Papas

The January Sale has just started in store and online at Mamas and Papas, and as well as the reduced prices they have an added incentive to buy - the Spend & Save offer.

Basically the more you spend in the sale the more you get back in e-vouchers to use in February - spend £50 get a £5 e-card, spend £100 get a £10 e-card or spend £150 and get a £15 e-card.  It's like getting an extra 10% back on top of the sale reductions!

The Sale itself says up to 50% Off on the sale banners, but looking through I found things at up to 80% off.  There are some really great prices to be had, and it's well worth a look.

Girls and Boys clothes are mostly half price and accessories start from as little as 90p.  The Maternity Wear has some great reductions as well, with the cheapest clothing costing £6.65.

There are reductions across the whole of the site including, Pushchairs and Accessories, Nursery Furniture and Interiors, Highchairs, Bathtime, Rockers and Swings, and Toys and Gifts.

There is even time to get your goods for Christmas if you need them urgently - the cut off is 4pm for Next Day Delivery. You also get Free Standard Delivery when you spend over £50.

50% Off Fleece Blankets Plus Extra 30% Off (With Code) @ Asda Direct

Asda Direct have some reductions across their home section, and I have found some great bargains on Children's Fleece Blankets. They start at  just £1.75, reduced from £5 and are a nice addition to any little ones room. My kids LOVE fleecy blankets for when we are watching television. The fleece blankets have 50% off and then an extra 30% off when you enter Asda Direct promo code KIDS30 at the checkout.

The WOW Fleece Blanket* sold out really quickly the last time we put it on. No wonder, as it's lovely for comic or superhero themed rooms and it's reduced to just £2.50. Use the code and get it for just £1.75.

If you fancy a Christmas themed one then choose from the Little Miss* one, for £2.45 with code. These were £7, and to be honest they look worth that. Although, I am probably being a tad biased as Little Miss are my favourite characters!

This Moshi Monster* fleece blanket is just £2.45 when you use the code at the checkout. That means you are saving £4.55 altogether.

Save on £2.95 delivery charge an opt for FREE store collection. If you need it now then you can get Next Day delivery for £4.50.

Kourtney Kardashian Shares Third Baby's Name

Kourtney Kardashian Shares Third Baby's Name

Kourtney Kardashian has given birth to her  third baby, and the reality star and proud new Mum took to Twitter and Instagram to share a cute pic of her new arrival's tiny digits.

Along with the pic, she tweeted:

"Madly in love with my little Reign Aston Disick."

That's his name revealed then, too.

Kourtney's third baby was born on her eldest son Mason's 5th birthday. She's also mum to a daughter, Penelope, who is two.

The Daily Mail reports:

'The family is freaking out with joy,' a source told E! News. 'What an amazing coincidence.'   

The paper also reports that Kourtney earlier told Fit Pregnancy that she loves being pregnant, and feels "comfortable" with how she looked and felt during her third pregnancy. She said:

"I find a pregnant body to be beautiful and an incredible reminder of what a woman's body is made to do."

We'd love to hear your thoughts on this. Did you look and feel fabulous when you were pregnant, or did you give birth on your older child's birthday? Or... dare I ask... what do you make of the name 'Reign'?!

The Christmas gifts start from just £1.50, and the toys and books are from just £1. The Christmas gift selection has a variety of items like this Owl Biscuit Jar* reduced from £20 to £10. This Pedometer* is ideal for those fitness fanatics or for those of you that wish to start a health kick in the New Year. It's only £3 now.

There's lots of lovely bits and pieces in the Toy and Book reductions like this Funny Faces Sticker and Doodles Book* for just £1.50. Or this Paint your Own Princess Castle Clock* for £6. It was £12, so I suspect this to be good quality.

Jake And The Never Land Pirates Wagon £4.99 Amazon/Argos

We all know what happens after Christmas day, don't we? Toy carnage! You will look around and see toys EVERYWHERE! You will politely ask the kids to put away their new toys, to look after them. They won't, so why not try to encourage them to do so with this Jake and the Never Land Pirates Wagon? It is reduced at both Amazon and Argos just now to just £4.99.

If you have seen this and are fancying it for Christmas day, then you can opt for Next Day Delivery from Amazon or Reserve and Collect from Argos. Take it from me Amazon's Next Day delivery is NOT 100% guaranteed, so remember that.

This Jake and The Never Land Pirates Wagon is SO handy for storing your little ones teddy bear collection, or it can be filled with LEGO, whatever your child chooses to put in it, you won't care because it'll mean it isn't strewn all over your living room floor.

Delivery from Argos is £3.95 but it is FREE to reserve and collect. To have it delivered from Amazon, including Next Day, bump your order up to £10 to receive it for FREE.

Various Family Organisers AND Calendars For 2015 £1.99 @ Amazon

Various Family Organisers AND Calendars For 2015 £1.99 @ Amazon

Everyone needs organisation in their life, especially when you have kids. You don't just have your life to manage but there's too. Do yourself a favour and save the humility of missing little Suzie's party or that school coffee morning that you said you'd help out on, and get yourself a Family Organiser. Forget going to WH Smith or Paperchase where you will pay though the nose, and head over to Amazon where they have LOADS of them for £1.99. Trust me it'll be the best £2 you will ever spend. There's heaps of calendars too, that would make awesome Stocking Fillers. There's Minecraft, Disney Frozen, Dr Who and MANY MORE!

Here's the ones we have found at £1.99:

Don't be fooled into thinking that these are just calendars, they aren't. Some come with stickers to place on memorable dates like school holidays. Each family organiser has a four of five columns across the month, so that you can write down commitments each person on each day. It makes it easy to see what's happening day-to-day at a glance. I swear by using these, so if you are ultra disorganised then introduce these into your life.

Children's Clothing Sale Now On: Items From £2 @ H&M

Children's Clothing Sale Now On: Items From £2 @ H&M

When I checked my emails this morning I couldn't have been more excited when I saw that the H&M sale has started. Of course I just had to check it out for all of you lovely folk out there, and I can tell you that it is AMAZING. Items start from just £2, and there's tops, bottoms, dresses, outerwear, shoes, slippers and much more. If you have missed out on a Next sale VIP slot, then get over to H&M and see what bargains for the kids you can pick up.

Here's my top finds for girls: This Padded Jacket* was £17.99 and is now only £9. It is available in two different colours and looks nice and cosy for the cold January we have been promised. These Fake Fur Boot Slippers* at £2, are such a great buy and I doubt you'd be able to find this cheap anywhere else.

And for the boys: I LOVE these Relaxed Jeans* and they come with braces. They are so cool and have been reduced to just £10. These Fleece Jackets* come in a choice of two colours and are only £4 each.

The selection is tremendous so go have a look. Delivery costs £3.90 and can be a bit slow, so be aware of that.

The Beano And The Dandy: Special Wartime Edition 2015 £1.99 @ Amazon

by Nada in Deals on 22 December, 2014 at 9:20 am

The Beano And The Dandy: Special Wartime Edition 2015 £1.99 @ Amazon

The Beano and The Dandy have been on the go for way longer than most of us have been alive. Here's a chance to look back at the editions from wartime. Amazon are selling this for just £1.99. Any annuals released by DC Thomson like The Beano or The Dandy are highly collectable, so it's worth bearing that in mind. You won't get this in time for Christmas but most likely in the days that follow, so if you have nieces or nephews that you won't see until after this may just be for you.

This annual will appeal to more adults than children, but I feel it might actually get children asking questions about World War 2 and other historical events, and surely that's not a bad thing.

Obviously, this annual features reprints of The Beano and The Dandy comics that were released around the time of war. It'll have the typical tongue-in-cheek humour that these famous comics always contained, so don't worry about it being all doom and gloom, becuse it won't be.

The Beano and The Dandy Annual is way under the threshold for FREE Super Saver delivery, but just add it to an order for £8.01. Something like this Dennis the Menace T-Shirt*.

30% Off Personalised Photobooks @ My Social Book

by Luschka van Onselen in Deals on 21 December, 2014 at 9:59 pm

30% Off Personalised Photobooks @ My Social Book My Social Book has a special offer on with 30% off personalised year books right now. How it works is that you connect your Facebook account with My Social Book, and with less than five minutes worth of effort, can have your entire year, month,  holiday or group turned into a printed book. I have one from a private virtual event held earlier in the year, and it is really beautifully done.

Click here to preview your own My Social Book*

  • Promotion: 30% off on up to 3 items
  • Promotional code: ADCCFB8A8

It's all too easy to upload everything onto the computer and forget about it - I realised this week that all my wedding photos are lost, and after extensive flooding last Christmas, my photo albums are gone too - so it's really nice to return to a printed album from time to time. With My Social Book you have very minimal effort as it grabs all your statuses, pictures and uploads from a time frame you specify and creates an album for you. Of course you can also spend a bit more time and manually remove any messages, pictures or other bits you don't want in your album.

Prices vary, depending on what you're ordering. The book I bought earlier in the year was £11 delivered, while a quick look at my whole year in review - 500 pages in total - would amount to £84.90, but with the code it's down to £59.43. Still quite a lot though, so I'll go through and remove some statuses and images to reduce it to an amount I want to pay.

These are great keepsakes, beautiful memories, and fantastic gifts and the promotional code also works on gift cards which are sent as PDF's so you can send them on to someone else immediately.

Kids Pyjamas From £3.50 @ F&F Tesco

by Luschka van Onselen in Deals on 21 December, 2014 at 9:12 pm

Kids Pyjamas From £3.50 @ F&F TescoAlways popular, the Tesco F&F pyjamas 'for boys' are reduced to £3 for the single set of robot pyjamas or from £4.50 - £5 for the two-pack of dinosaur pyjamas. Standard delivery is £3.95, but if you want it for Christmas, you'll need to look at next day delivery at £5, or click and collect is still an option too.

There are actually 13 sets to choose from for under £5. Some of them are packs, but most are single sets - still a great price though. Details vary depending on which pyjamas you choose, but in general these are cotton rich with a matching top and bottom. They are all long sleeved to go with the season, and the full length bottoms have an elasticated waistband. It may be too late for the Christmas box - maybe - but even so, kids don't seem to ever stop growing and there are a few months of winter left yet, so these wouldn't hurt to keep on hand for next month, or the month after - you know they'll come in handy at some point.

FREE Kid's Christmas Recipes @ Asda

by Lisa Hayes in Misc on 21 December, 2014 at 7:11 pm

FREE Kid's Christmas Recipes @ Asda

Asda's Kid's Food website is wonderful. You already know I can't cook, so I tend to stick to children's recipes that we can make together. That way it's easy and fun, rather than me struggling to make my pudding look like a Mary Berry creation - no one expects that if a 5 year old has been involved do they? The pressure is off so we can enjoy ourselves!

There are some really great ideas for things to make in the Christmas Kids In The Kitchen section, some as food gifts, lots of desserts and even decorations, and all nice and easy.

I really like the look of the Stained Glass Star Biscuits, as they look so pretty and need so few ingredients too. And I think every child I know would enjoy trying to build an Ice Cream Snowman before the ice cream melts. It looks so easy and fun that I can't believe we haven't tried to make these before! How many kids will try to build their own Ice Cream Olaf then?

The recipes for Food Gifts for children to make might be coming just a little too late to give to their teachers and school friends, but if you're going to relatives on Christmas Day then these might make a lovely little extra for the children to bring. (We'll make you some peanut butter fudge Mum!).

All the recipes include dietary information, as well as how long it takes to make and even the price per serving. You can do the expected of printing or emailing the recipe, or you can click the link to buy the ingredients direct from the asda grocery website.

So the first thing on our list is Ice Cream Snowmen - what do you fancy making?  Have fun! :)
