Lee Stafford uBunTu Oils Straight & Juicy Irons Review & Giveaway

I’ve been blessed (or cursed) with a head full of wavy hair since birth. I use straighteners every single day, without them it’s not a pretty sight I assure you. Think of a cross between Worzel Gummidge and Diana Ross and you are half way there. My old straighteners have seen better days so when I was asked if I wanted to review the new Lee Stafford uBunTu Oils Straight & Juicy Irons of course I said yes.

The uBunTu Oils Straight and Juicy Irons come in a gorgeous hot pink and lime green colour. They are professional quality and the plates are infused with uBunTu oilf from Africa. The oils help to leave your hair feeling pampered, restored and full of juicy goodness.

The straighteners also have lots of other great features like:

Fast 60 second heat up time.

A 60 minute auto shut off for safety.

Variable temperature with LED indicator.

They straighten and curl.

360 degree swivel cord.

Lockable switch to protect the plates.

What Did I Think

I have used some of the Lee Stafford hair products before, but I didn’t know their was an electrical beauty range available too.

After washing and drying my hair I set to work with the straighteners, sectioning my hair as usual.

Firstly, I love how smooth these straighteners are to use. They are really comfortable and lightweight to hold. I also found that the oils on the plates helped them to glide through my thick hair easily, I have had some snagging in the past with other models.

There was also none of the usual static I have experienced with other straighteners in the past which was a huge bonus.

I really liked that I could adjust the temperature myself. I need a higher temperature for the thicker parts of my hair and a lower temperature for the delicate parts like my fringe. I think one of the biggest advantages these straighteners have over similar competitors is the ability to control the temperature with the LED display.

I was really happy with the results, my hair felt lovely and smooth. It also looked glossy and really healthy. I would definitely recommend these straighteners if you are in the market for a new pair. I also think they would make a lovely Birthday or Christmas present.

As you know I do love a bargain and that’s certainly what these are. Don’t worry though, the quality hasn’t been compromised at all. They are available from Amazon for £29.99 which I think is a fantastic price.

BrainBox Peppa Pig Review & Giveaway

Daisy and Jake are both massive Peppa Pig fans. I’ve lost count of the number of episodes we have watched over the years. We also love playing games together, we can often be found on a Saturday afternoon partaking in one or two. When we were asked if we would like to review the new Brainbox Peppa Pig game we were delighted, we could combine our love of both.

Brainbox Peppa Pig helps children with their observation and memory skills. There are 55 cards and each one features Peppa and her little brother George in a whole variety of situations. The aim of the game is to study the scene on the card, remember as much as you can about it and then answer some questions to test your memory.

Daisy and I played the game together although it can be adapted for a single player. Daisy has a fantastic memory so I knew she would love this game.

We took it in turns to choose a card, we had until the sand timer ran out to memorise as much as we could about the scene. Next we rolled the dice to decide how many questions we had to answer, there are five questions on the back of each card.

 

Daisy did really well with this part, better than me in fact! Another great thing about the cards is they helped with Daisy’s reading skills. She insisted on reading the captions on the bottom of each card.

Brainbox have kindly offered one of my readers a chance to win the Peppa Pig game for themselves. You can enter using the Gleam app below. There are two mandatory tasks and the rest are optional, you can even come back every day for extra entries. Please also take some time to read the terms and conditions of the giveaway.

Project Mc2 Doll With Experiments Review & Giveaway

The Project Mc2 dolls have been created to encourage and advance girls in the areas of S.T.E.A.M ( science, technology, engineering, art and maths). This is something I fully support so when I was asked if Daisy would like one of the new experiments dolls to review I said yes.

Project Mc2 are a team of four smart and super cool girls who love science and use their spy skills to go on missions. You can watch them in action in the original Project Mc2 series only on Netflix.

Daisy was sent the McKeyla doll with the glitter light bulb experiment. The doll itself is 12″ tall and comes dressed in a stylish outfit suited to her personality. The doll also comes with a backpack and beaker shaped comb as well as the light bulb experiment.

The experiment with this doll is a glitter globe light bulb which you can make light up using safe household ingredients like water, glycerine and glitter. We chose to use little sparkly beads instead of glitter and you could also use food colouring if you prefer.

Daisy loved setting up the experiment and was really excited when the bulb lit up. I like that the experiment can be created again and again.

Daisy also loved how poseable the doll is, her articulated limbs make play really fun and easy.

We have been generously offered one of the new Project Mc2 dolls with experiments to giveaway to one of our readers. You can enter using the Gleam app below. There is one mandatory task and the rest are optional, you can even come back every day for extra entries. Please also take some time to read the terms and conditions of the giveaway.

Sweetly UK Review and Giveaway

Regular readers of the blog will know that I’ve given some delicious American candy bundles away over the last few months so when the lovely folks at Sweetly UK got in touch to ask if I would like to review one of their new American candy subscription boxes and run a giveaway for my readers of course I said yes.

Sweetly is a brand new American candy box subscription service, when you join you will receive a monthly package containing a hand-picked selection of American candy, soda and sweeties and snacks.  Each box contains 12-14 items including at least 5 premium items. The subscription plans are totally flexible you can cancel pause and upgrade at any time.

When my box arrived I couldn’t believe how much they had managed to squeeze into the box, I’ve tried lots of American candy so I was surprised that there were loads of goodies in the box that I had never tried before. I of course had to limit myself to a few nibbles which was fins as i had a few willing taste testers to share with, my absolute favourite in the box was the 5th Avenue chocolate bar which is a combination of chocolate and crunchy peanut butter. My crazy children absolutely loved trying the extremely sour Lemonhead and nerds candy.

img_2334 img_2337 img_2344 img_2345I think the boxes are great value considering how expensive it can be to buy all the items individually and you get to try lots of new and different goodies each month, if you have a sweet tooth and love subscription boxes then this is the box for you. You can get 10% off your first order by entering the code WEBSTERLAND10.

Polychrome Light Review & Giveaway

Paladone recently sent us a Polycrome Light to review, they also gave me a second one so I could offer it to one of my lovely readers in a giveaway, read to the end to find out how to enter.

The Polychrome Light is a stylish moodlight shaped like a lightbulb, the transparent plastic fins project multi-coloured shadows on to walls and surfaces as they phase with colourful LED lighting displays. We have been using it in our bedroom instead of a lamp to create a relaxing ambience before we go to sleep and to entertain the children of course.

img_19031 img_19001To start the phasing display you simply press down on the top of the light, you can press a second time to stop on a specific colour to suit your mood or simple press again to switch it off. The light is dual powered so you can run it off batteries or the micro USB cable which is included.

Minnie Mouse Fashion Doll Review & Giveaway

Daisy was very excited when the delivery man brought her a parcel this week, she was even more excited when she found the Minnie Mouse Fashion Doll from IMC Toys inside that she had been sent to review.

IMG_1098

There are three Minnie figures to collect, Beach Beautiful, Fashion Fun or Like A Princess and each one comes three different outfits and lots of fun accessories.

IMG_1101 IMG_1103

Daisy got the Beach Beautiful Minnie and she had lots of fun changing her outfits and styling her with the accessories to get her ready for a trip to the beach, of course we had to make Minnie her own private beach to enjoy. Daisy has also taken Minnie in the shower wearing her snorkel and flippers.

IMG_1113 IMG_1114 IMG_1118

I really like how chunky and flexible the doll, outfits and accessories are, Daisy was easily able to change the outfits and attach the accessories by herself. I also think her outfits are adorable I love the stripy swimsuit that she’s wearing in the photo below.

Toy Collecting & Giveaway

Like most children I used to love collecting toys, I had My Little Pony, He-man figures and Strawberry Shortcake dolls to name a few, although I didn’t keep any of my collections I’ve always felt nostalgic when I thought of them so I was more than a little excited when Daisy began to show a real interest in toys especially My Little Pony.

IMG_0614

I began collecting Pop Funko figures earlier this year and through searching for information about them I came across a whole new world of toy collectors on YouTube, Daisy and I began watching blind bag and surprise toy videos (trust me they are addictive). The videos have really sparked Daisy’s imagination and she has been spending her pocket money (and maybe some of mine) buying blind bags and small collectables.

IMG_0711[1] IMG_0678[1]

I thought it would be nice to offer you my lovely readers a chance to start or add to your own toy collection, you can win two My Little Pony figures and a collectable Disney Wikkeez tin by entering using the gleam app below, the first task is mandatory but all the other tasks are optional, you can also come back every day for a bonus entry.
