  • Spooky Fruit for Halloween

       When I heard about the Spooky Fruit Competition on Alex and Alexa Life&Style Blog i thought that this is something Kara will really enjoy doing. And she did. I just wish we had more fruits and more inspiration…and daddy around to carve the fruits better than mummy and Kara did. But it was something mummy and Kara really loved doing together and although the crafting is not the best – but how can it be out of the hands of a 4 and half year old helped by her mummy. Here is what we managed to do:

  • My Princess Dream Bedroom

    I love shopping – real one or just window shopping one. If i could choose my future job one of the choices would definitely be “Personal shopper”. I love dreaming at nice things and loosing myself in the world of imagination. This is why when i heard about the Debenhams Dream Bedroom competition on Annie’s blog i jumped at the opportunity. I always wanted to have a white princess like bedroom and if it wasn’t for my husband i would probably have one. As per the competition rules i need to tell you what are the items above and how much they cost: Black nickel ‘Olivia’ bedstead – £468  Taupe…

  • Capture the colour by Kara

    When i first heard about the Capture the colour competition i thought: Wow how cool! Kara loves taking pictures and i am sure she would absolutely love to explore her surroundings and take pictures. She did but not as much as i thought and because the cold weather came faster than i thought the opportunities of good pictures were less and less. I wanted to still enter and then every day i would remind her that she needs to take pictures with the colours of the rainbow. First reaction was to get excited but then she would get upset and say that she doesn’t have anything to take pictures with…So…

  • Oriflame New Baby Range – Review & Competition

    I remember like yesterday when my mum joined Oriflame. I was at the beginning of my teenage years and i was quite excited about all the stuff she got. I think my first ever mascara was from Oriflame. When i was asked to review the new and relaunched Oriflame baby products i was delighted. In the first 8 weeks i didn’t use anything else than water on my baby skin but since then i massage my daughter with the new Oriflame cream and used the hair & body wash for her baths. I didn’t get to use the powder just yet and the soap and baby oil will be launched…
