Back to school with Debenhams | Review

Back to school with Debenhams

The end of August seems to be the time when most people are running around, getting those last bits of uniform, ready for the little cherubs to return back to school. Until Jacob started primary school last year, I never realised actually how much was needed; trousers, t-shirts, jumpers, socks, shoes, coat, bags, PE kit (including shorts, tracksuit bottoms, t-shirt, jumper, trainers)… And with multiples of each, it can get expensive, right? He likes to get dirty (nothing wrong with that!) so I think we must have gone through at least 15 polo shirts through the school year; this year I decided to stock up with a pack every time I go to the store!

I actually purchased his uniform from multiple stores last year to try and get the best value. Obviously style, colour, and fit is important too. This year, Debenhams asked me if I would like to purchase some school uniform for Jacob from their online store. I didn’t realise just how much choice there was! They currently have 25% off on their spectacular event too, so there’s even better value for money right there.

Start the new term in style with our collection of clothing, school bags and PE kits. You’ll find a full range of sizes, including generous fit, for everything from girls’ school coats and skirts to trousers and shirts for boys. And with weatherproof jackets and scuff-resistant shoes for both, they’ll be top of the class with our A+ range.

my healthy kitchen (myhk) ready meals | Review

my healthy kitchen ready meals review

Since joining Slimming World two and a half years ago, I have very rarely bought a ready meal. If I have, then it’s been from a supermarket’s own healthier range, or SW’s own. I do love being in the kitchen and getting my cook on, but sometimes I just don’t have the time or basically, just cannot be bothered… So when I was asked if I would like to sample the my healthy kitchen (myhk) range of ready meals, I accepted the mission.

Our meals are full of goodness because of what we put in, rather than what we take out.

Every one of our ready meals is under 500 calories and made with nutritious ingredients, with no artificial flavours, colours, or preservatives. Better yet, we make sure every meal offers at least one nutritional benefit, whether it’s low in fat, saturated fat, or salt, is a source of protein or fibre, or contains 1 (or more!) of your 5 a day.

Outdoor Ornaments To Grace Any Garden

Decorating the inside of your home is nice and easy. Most people have a good idea of what they’d like from the rooms inside their home before they start, making this job simple compared to a lot of design. As you complete the inside of your home, it’s likely that you’ll start to feel very good about it. Yet, there is still one area which you haven’t worked on; the garden. To help you out with this area of your home, this post will be going through some of the ornamentation you can use to make it unique to you while avoiding tacky items. Read more

Musings of a Slimming World target member | #2

Musings of a Slimming World target member #2

It’s been a while since I wrote my first musings post; almost six months, in fact! I thought now was about the right time to get my thoughts down again. Since that last post, I haven’t found staying at target much easier. I still haven’t managed to get back to “bang on” target, so I obviously haven’t managed to get back to where I was before Christmas either. I would have felt like a fraud writing this before, as I’ve been out of target for the past month; but I finally got back into it this week.

If I’m being honest – and I always am on here – my head just hasn’t been 100% in the game. It’s not that I’ve completely lost my love of Slimming World; I think if I was following any other plan then I would be the same. We’ve been having problems with Jacob and it’s really been taking a toll on how I’ve been eating. Read more

July Degustabox | Subscription Box Review

July17 Degustabox review

I’ve been receiving the Degustabox for over a year now and every month I look forward to the surprise on delivery day. The July Degustabox was themed as the summer box, and pretty much every product inside did fit the brief! There were a couple of products I really wasn’t keen on this month, but no complaints about the rest.

  • Enjoy 10 to 15 surprise products, many are completely new to the market!
  • Receive your Degustabox every month filled with goodies.
  • All for much less than you would pay in the shops!

So what was inside the July Degustabox?
