Back to school with Smash - Ever-changing Life of a Mum

Finding the right lunch box for your child might sound like a simple task, but in reality it can actually be rather tricky. With so many items on the market these days, it is easy to feel a little overwhelmed when staring at the aisles of possibilities.

From insulated lunch boxes, bento boxes, drink bottles, food and snack containers, ice packs, sandwich cutters, there are so many things to consider.

My family had the opportunity to road test some of Smash’s new back to school range for 2017. My girls and I were super excited to check out what they have on offer – I think I have a slight obsession with collecting lunch box items (along with my addiction to stationery) which I have obviously passed on to my children!

Review: Little Innoscents cleaning range

Review Little Innoscents cleaning rangeUsing natural cleaning products to help keep my home clean and tidy is really important to me.

So when I was recently introduced to Little Innoscents’ new Clean and Green cleaning range while attending the Kids Business bloggers brunch event I was keen to give the products a try in my home.

Did I mention they are growing? Like really, really fast! It seems like I have only just fed them when the next cry of “Mum, I’m hungry!” comes from one of their mouths.

I recently had the opportunity to put a fantastic assortment of reusable pouches to the test thanks to Sinchies.

I was so excited to receive the package in the mail and get started on trying out these reusable pouches with my family.

I kindly received the Sinchies Big Kids lunchbox pack (consisting of 5 x 140ml pouches, 5 x 200ml pouches, 5 x sandwich bags, 5 x snack bags and 2 x wrap bags) – pretty much everything I could possibly need to fill my school children’s lunch boxes – as well as a pack of 10 Sinchies Pops (reusable iceblock pouches) and some Sip’n silicone lids for my toddler. Sinchies even provided me with a very handy cleaning brush!
