25 Days of Christmas Day 21: Win a Little Adventures Ice Princess Costume

December 21, 2016

Dressing up was one of my favourite things to do as a little girl – a dancer, a doctor, a fairy and many more characters were created from old dress ups. Like most children mine love it too, the costumes they have these days are a big upgrade from the ones I remember.

Little Adventures is dedicated to nurturing the imagination and magic that lives in young children. Their  collection of princess dress ups, magical mermaids and boy costumes is sure to bring a smile to any child’s face.

How do Little Adventures products differ from others on the market? These adorable dress-ups at affordable prices are the perfect fit for little ones. They are comfortable with no itchy underskirts or fabrics, completely finished seams and hems, and no buttons or ties to frustrate little fingers. The stretch bodices accommodate a variety of sizes making each size more versatile. All items are made with quality fabrics and trims that are comfortable, washable and guaranteed.

Little Adventures is available at: ABC online store, David Jones, Toy World and all good toy retailers.

On Day 21 I am giving away a Little Adventures Ice Princess costume, sizing recommended for 4-5 years of age. Entry is on the Mum To Five Facebook page.

VTech toys have been in my house for many years, right from when I had my first child almost 21 years ago. Since 1980, VTech has been developing high-quality, innovative educational products that enrich children’s development through fun and smart play. Kids love them because they are interactive, bright and loads of fun. As a parent I love them for the same reasons with one major addition: VTech produce quality products that last and the kids never grow bored of them. This Christmas Miss 2 will be opening some VTech presents Santa has picked out especially for her.

VTech Spin & Learn Colours Torch: RRP $19.95 Recommended for ages 18-36 months.

Every one of my kids has had an obsession with torches, and Miss 2 is no exception. At the moment she has to make do with stealing her brother’s red torch when he isn’t looking so I know this gift will be among her favourites. Learning is colourful with the Spin & Learn Colours Torch. Turn the glowing ring to see the torch change colour and introduce six different animals. Press the turtle button to use it as a real torch; or press one of the three different chunky buttons to trigger fun music, letters or questions. This torch really helps to develop motor skills and a sense of discovery. With its easy-to-grip handle, your  will want to take this learning toy torch with them on every adventure.

VTech Toot-Toot Splash: RRP $16.95 Recommended for ages 1-5 years.

Perfectly-sized for little hands, the Toot-Toot Splash Sailboat, Tugboat, Speedboat, Clownfish, Sea Lion and Crab entertain kids with a light up button that activates music and sounds in the bath. SplashPointsTM technology has the characters responding with different phrases, cheerful melodies, and sing-along songs. Splish splash, Toot-Toot is taking a bath!

Alka Power Iconic Mineral Alkaline Water

December 11, 2016

It is recommended you should drink two litres of water per day or thereabouts. I confess I drink no where near that – I am lucky to average a glass or two a day. When I do consume water it has to be bottled – I never have liked tap water. When I was offered the chance to try the new Alka Power Iconic Mineral Alkaline Water it was a great chance to kick start my resolution for 2017 early. Drink more water!

In a marketplace crowded with brands that leave consumers thirsty for more, Aussies can now enjoy the wide-ranging benefits of a unique high pH alkaline water thanks to the launch of Alka Power – Australia’s first premium ionic alkaline water.

Alka Power is now stocked in over 800 Woolworth’s supermarkets nationwide and meets Aussie consumers’ growing demand for high performance beverages that truly complement a healthy lifestyle.

Most alkaline waters in the Australian market are a pH of 7 to 8.2 at the source and have an unstable pH. Other bottled spring waters are on the acidic side of the pH scale which offer little rehydrating. Alka Power exceeds this by delivering a stable pH9->10 with active ionic minerals – nearly 100 times more alkaline and more efficient in hydrating and absorption than any other, making it Australia’s highest pH alkaline water on the market!

It is this powerful synergy between alkalinity and active ionic minerals that fuel ultimate hydration, balance and performance – making Alka Power the water choice for a number of Australian elite athletes and professionals. Alka Power also has significant health benefits linked to their water, such as increase in blood flow, enhances circulation and metabolism, increases energy, replenishes essential minerals and boosts the immune system.

Alka Power is free from salt, sugar, preservatives and additives, making it the perfect pre-and post – workout beverage as it delivers a more efficient recovery between sessions by flushing out lactic acid. It’s ultra clean so the taste is crisp and pure, making it easy to consume.

Alka Power is also environmentally friendly and is produced in a bottle that is BPA, BPF, BPS free and up to 50% recycled PET.

Suitable for people of all ages, including pregnant women, Alka Power helps balance your pH levels and is now available nationwide in Woolworths Supermarkets as well as, Harris Farm Markets, Thomas Dux Grocers, Vitamin king, QE Food Stores, About Life and Go Vita stores. A full stock list is available online here. 

Giveaway: Thanks to Alka Power I am giving away a 12 pack x 600ml to a follower. Entry is on my Facebook Page. To enter: Visit Alka Power Australia on Facebook. Like and comment on the post. Ends: 13.12.16 9PM AEST. Australian residents only. Winner drawn via random.org
