Bizzi Growin

3 Apr

Hi folks,

I cannot believe I’m already into double figures… 10 weeks pregnant! Eeeeeck… how exciting! This pregnancy seems to be flying by way quicker than my pregnancy with Seth.

I do apologise for my little lapse in posts… I’ve been suffering petty bad with morning sickness… actually make that ‘all day sickness’ & with it I’ve had the most horrendous headaches. I’m hoping once I hit that second trimester goal post, it’ll start to subside.

So… with everything on fast forward… it’s most definitely time to make a start in the Nursery. It’s like Bizzi Growin read my mind when they sent the most amazing & beautiful bundle of goodies.

So… what was in the bundle…

With all of these gorgeous goodies… where do I start!?

Okay, let’s start with the utterly fantastic Pod Travel Changing Bag. This product is a total game changer! If you’re following me on social media – you’ll have noticed me posting about this on Twitter & Instagram. It’s utterly amazing! I just wish I’d had this for when I had Seth.

The bag itself is lovely & roomy with plenty of pockets & compartments. There’s also an insulated bottle pouch which is always a welcome accessory. Now… here’s where things get clever. This bag completely unzips & inside you’ll find 2 lightweight poles to give your travel cot a shape. It took like 2 mins to convert the bag to a cot. I know this as I did it myself. The changing mat doubles as a lovely thick cot mattress for the travel cot. And voila! You have your very own travel cot!!! How mad is that!? No need to take bulky travel cots etc…

Honestly – it’s the most amazing thing EVER!!! We go on holiday Christmas week to Center Parcs… so the baby will be around 8wks old… guess what I shall be taking with us!? Yep – my trusty Pod! I’m simply in love with it! Everyone I have shown just cannot believe how excellent it is. It’s currently £30!!! I mean come on! You can’t go wrong. If you’re expecting… if you know someone who is… then you really do need to buy the Pod. It’ll definitely be money well spent!

The Little Dreamer bedding is so beautiful. It’s like the gorgeous people at Bizzi Growin HQ read my mind with this bedding. We’re going to be decorating the nursery white & pale grey & we’d decided that for soft furnishings we wanted white & black. This bedding is going to look absolutely stunning. Once we’ve decorated & built the cot bed, I’ll be able to take pictures & really show case how adorable & stunning it is. So you can expect another blog post featuring those items.

The Little Dreamer Bedding is so well made & is beautiful quality. The embroidery gives it such a luxurious over all feel. They would make perfect baby shower gifts. And the best thing about the Little Dreamer range is that its gender neutral.

The Bunny Playmat is just the cutest little thing. It’s made from super soft materials & is lovely & plush. Perfect for baby having a spot of tummy time. There’s a little mirror, squeaker, some ‘crinkly’ textures & different fabrics to make baby want to explore & play. I can’t wait to see Little T rolling around on his or her mat. Again, I shall be reviewing this item again once Little T is here.

Now, if it’s luxury you want… look no further than the Koochicoo Blanket. What a stunning item. This blanket comes in 3 colours: Pink, Blue & Porcelain. This blanket would suit all ages really. My little boy is 2yrs old & loves it lol. He does love a blanket. I think he gets that from me… I never carried around teddy as a kid… I always had a security blanket.

The Koochicoo Blanket would make a beautiful christening gift or baby shower gift. It’s so super soft. It would look so elegant in your pram. Just love love love this item.

The Elephant Chenille Blanket is so soft & snuggly. The elephant design is super cute. Again, with the grey & white – it’s going to look fantastic in Little T’s Nursery. It also comes in pink & blue. The quality of this blanket is simply flawless. It’s lovely & thick too, making it perfect for being out & about.

The little cuddly Lamb & Blanket is just such a perfect gift for a new born. When Seth was born he had a little cuddle Lamb. So it’s lovely that Little T has a one too. The blanket is lovely & fluffy & really soft. I think this little set shall be going into my Hospital bag for when Little T arrives. I think it’s going to be his or her first blanket. What a gorgeous little gift this would make.

You can shop online & it’s free delivery on orders over £50!!! BARGAIN! If you’re in the process of putting your Baby Shower Wishlist together – then I 100% recommend that you add these gorgeous items from Bizzi Growin. Made by Bizzi Mums for Bizzi Mums.

I hope you’ve enjoyed this review & thanks as always for reading!!! And please keep a look out for when I review these items again.

Personal Planner

28 Nov

Hi folks

Well, I have another fab Christmas gift idea for you!

What do you buy the most organised person you know? Or, what do you buy the least organised person you know? Or.. if you know someone in between… I have the perfect gift idea! Why not buy them a personal planner? Or better still… head to their website & buy someone a gift card!

The Personal Planner is just that… a fabulously unique personal planner tailored for you… by you! You literally design every single aspect of it. Everything from the colour of the pages to the layout.

I loved creating my own planner. I make notes generally all over my diary & I’m always writing lists of menu’s for the week to keep on track with eating healthy. My current diary just ends up as a massive mess… with writing scrawled all over the place. It looks incoherent – then I have to decipher what I’ve written & in what order! Now, when you have a busy working Mammy life like me… this is not the way to plan your time! So… with my NEW planner… I have my page sectioned up into little, manageable, neat categories! I simply cannot wait for the New Year purely so I can use it! Yes… I am that sad.

Along with my regular weekly breakdown over two pages, I have:

  • To Do This Week, complete with a ticky box (who doesn’t love a ticky box!?)
  • List Of The Week – this list I was going to use for business/PR contacts of who I’m in talks with. Just so to keep it separate from my to do list.
  • Idea Of the Week – This was to jot any buzz words or inspiring things I encounter that I can write about or simply come back to at a later date.
  • This Week’s Dinner – This is my menu area.
  • Notes – well thats pretty self explanatory.

I also opted for the ruler too – it makes a great page mark doesn’t it!?

I’ve tried in the past to have a personal diary & a work diary, but it just never works. I end up lugging around two diaries. Then I update one & not the other & it just gets so confusing! So, this way with my personal planner all organised & categorised – I can have one diary for everything but with keeping things in a precise coherent order!

I opted for the wide diary – simply so I could get as much wordiness in there! But you can choose various shapes & sizes to suit your needs.

I love that it’s slim too. It takes up hardly no room in my bag! Also, another bugbear of mine is when you have book in your bag & it opens so the pages get all bend & dogeared. I end up having to pop a hair bobble around things to keep them closed etc… well that just looks a bit naff doesn’t it!? And not at all professional when you turn up to a meeting with split hairs sprouting off your diary! Well… there’s no need for that with your personal planner as you get to choose the colour of your elastic that is attached & in the perfect place to keep your diary closed & perfect!

You can add sheets of stickers too! Now this is fab for all of you ‘bullet journalers’ out there! ‘Journaler’… I don’t even think thats a word!? Oh well, it is now! I love a good sticker. If you’ve got something important to do – a sticker always makes it pop when you turn the page. If you are into bullet journaling then you can opt for plain pages rather than lined – just for when your sketching etc… Honestly – whatever you want – goes really. You design it. Even the front cover… I opted for a plain & simple cover… but you could add a photograph of your choice… anything!

If you’re wanting to buy this as a gift – but would like to pass the creative gift on so the recipient gets the fun of designing, then you have the option of buying them a PDF version gift card – or an actual physical gift that will arrive via the postman. It really would make a fab Christmas gift. That way – you can either email them the fabulous gift. Or… pop it in their Christmas card!

Now, if you’re wanting to create & design a personal planner to arrive before Christmas, then you really must get your skates on! You need to order before December 4th for guaranteed Christmas Delivery. But, if you’re not sure of anything, then you can head to their website & contact the beautiful personal planner folk via their  customer service contact email address, of via their Facebook Page.

Well… There you have it! Go buy your very own Personal Planner… you really do need it in your life!

Thanks so much for reading as always & I hope I’ve inspired you to get organised!

Love & Huggles,
