Clarks Mara Sand GTX Boots

| December 10, 2012

For over a month I’ve been wearing a pair of Clarks Mara Sand GTX Boots. These gorgeous black leather Gore-tex boots were kindly sent to me by Clarks to review.

As a busy Mum I’m out and about daily with my baby so footwear has to look great, be practical and most importantly offer comfort.

Despite the weather I love walking and enjoying the great outdoors. For exercise and pleasure I walk everywhere in London with my baby in her buggy or toddling alongside me. For several hours each day we pound the pavements and run around the many parks and green spaces.

Clarks Mara Sand GTX Boots are styled on the classic long-leg riding boot. There’s subtle stitching on the boots and a simple buckle strap that can be adjusted at the top of the boots. The leather is soft and has a great shine.

One of the best features of the Clarks Mara Sand GTX Boots is that they’re 100% waterproof and breathable. Made with a Gore-tex membrane they prevent moisture from penetrating whilst letting perspiration out, allowing my feet to breathe and preventing them from overheating.

I’ve found this combination creates the perfect environment for maximum comfort and the right temperature whether I’m walking in a busy shopping mall or outdoors.

Clarks Mara Sand GTX Boots look great with trousers or skirts and can be dressed up or down making them extremely wearable for all occasions. They’re smart, stylish and incredibly comfortable.

Regardless of rain or snow this winter my feet will be kept dry and I’ll be enjoying all the elements. You can find out more about the technology used with Clarks Gore-tex waterproof shoes and boots.

Vertbaudet Baby Clothes

| December 9, 2012

We received a beautiful Vertbaudet baby girl blouse and bubble skirt to review last week.

I’ve always loved the style and quality of Vertbaudet baby clothes and this outfit is perfect for everyday wear and special occasions.

This baby girl outfit consists of a navy blue blouse with a trim on the sleeves and the front of the blouse in the same pretty material as the bubble skirt.

The cuffs on the blouse are gathered and there is a metal button on each cuff for detail. The front of the blouse has three metal buttons for ease of putting over baby’s head.

The bubble skirt has an elasticated waist which gives a perfect fit and makes it comfortable for baby to wear all day. It’s a really cute skirt that has a full effect and looks great with baby leggings or tights.

Both the baby girl blouse and the bubble skirt are 100% cotton and machine washable. You can find out more or purchase this baby girl outfit from Vertbaudet.

The Land of Sometimes

| November 27, 2012

Over the last few weeks we have been listening to the audio storybook The Land of Sometimes which we were kindly sent to review.

We’ve enjoyed the magical story of twins Alfie and Elsie who travel to ‘The Land Of Sometimes’ where four seasons pass within one day.

Alfie and Elsie travel through Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter and meet eccentric characters and listen to their original songs along the way.

Encountering characters such as the River Slouch Sling who wants to make friends, Little Twink a mischievous fairy, Mrs Blip who likes to make you slip, the Chameleon Catcher and the Willow Tree Choir Boy.

Each chapter of the story is interspersed with music relating to the storyline. My favourite songs are Dare Make A Wish and The Song About Holly And George who are two delightful kittens.

The Land of Sometimes covers many genres of music from reggae to disco, Irish folk, poetry and New Orleans jazz. It’s fun, upbeat and a great introduction for children to storytelling and music.

You can discover the characters and songs at The Land Of Sometimes where you can follow the map around the Island, download wallpaper for your computer, print out the characters for your children to colour in and purchase the album.
