GIVEAWAYS & OFFERS

minis SPRING GIVEAWAY

Giveaway

Over the past couple of month’s I’ve been very lucky to be able to offer fellow mums some amazing giveaway prizes. I thought it was now the turn of our little ones so have persuaded some simply gorgeous kids’ lifestyle brands to do a give away with me. It will run on this blog as well as through Instagram so there will be double the chance of winning. So what do you win? Well, feast your eyes on these wonderful pieces…

Well Grounded Co

Giveaway

I wrote a post on Well Ground Co. not too long ago (see here). I absolutely love the brand. The garments are so well made and so soft for the minis to wear. As part of this giveaway, Well Grounded Co. is giving the lucky winner a voucher worth £50.00 so you can chose an outfit from their range.

Braveling

Braveling giveaway

In a world where life can sometimes be taken too seriously, Braveling offer an injection of humour. Their new collection features seaside inspired designs. I particularly love the “rock” designs. In this giveaway, Braveling will offer the winner a pair of long socks of their choice (subject to availability). My boys have some and they say they are very soft to wear. You can see more on Braveling here and in a previous post here.

Hullabaloo Prints

Giveaway

I’ve long been a fan of Hullabaloo Prints, especially their hot air balloon print which has (quite rightly) become a signature print for them. The designs are made in Jaipur using the traditional Indian art of block printing where the colour is applied by hand to the wooden block before being printed. This technique ensures each item is unique as well as beautiful to look at. The winner of this giveaway will have the chance of winning a set of two muslin cloths in either the pink or blue hot air balloon colour way. Both come in a cute zip up pouch which can be used to carry nappies and wipes or simpldaily essentials in your bag. You can see more on this fabulous label here.

Panda & Ping

Giveaway

When I received some pyjamas from Panda & Ping, more were immediately ordered. The boys found them super soft and it may just be coincidence, but since wearing them, Harry doesn’t complain of itchy legs from excess in the night…not that I want to jinx things! In this giveaway Panda & Ping are offering a pair of their “Ringo” pyjamas. You can find out more about Panda & Ping here and in a previous post here.

Lala & Bea

Giveaway

The home of kids’ and mums’ fashion and lifestyle, Lala & Bea aim to bring style and an element of fun to family life. Family life is about adventure, laughter and good times which are what Lala & Bea stand for. They have offered to giveaway the absolutely stunning star picnic blanket. This will be a great prize as Summer and warmer days are hopefully on their way. You can find out more about them here.

Childs Farm

Giveaway

Childs Farm was set up by a mum of two girls who wanted to find something which was gentle to their soft skin, didn’t use the nasties found in some brands but which also were effective. Childs Farm is 100% compliant with the European Commission’s ‘Cosmetics Directive’. This prohibits animal testing on individual toiletries ingredients as well as finished products. You can find out more here. For this giveaway, Childs Farm are giving away everything you see in the picture above…plus a second toiletry set!!

Djeco

Giveaway

We are HUGE fans of Djeco in this house. Their toys and games are constant winners in my kids’ eyes. Their new range, Klioptik is a feast for the eyes. The minis are encouraged to make up fantastical robots, machines and buildings and then with the placement of the overlay, the creations become moving machines. Djeco are adding the robot K to the giveaway. It will definitely be well received by your little one! You can find out more about Djeco here.

Lulu & Nat

Giveaway

Lulu & Nat were set up to provide bright, bold designs for kids which would also appeal to their parents. Kids love colour and this brand bring it into a family’s interior using strong prints which add, not dominate a room. Lulu & Nat are giving away one of their dinosaur cushions to our lucky winner. Fun, quirky and bright. See more about Lulu & Nat here.

    1. I’m looking forward to the lighter evenings, day trips with the kids, not having to wear a big winter coat and hopefully the kids will stop catching colds lol.

  1. I cant wait to leave my big winter coat behind, stop using the heated car seat and most importantly rediscover my toes!

  2. I am so looking forward to the warmer weather and lighter evenings again! Such a drain in Winter leaving work when it’s dark. I am desperate to clean up the garden after Winter, get home early when it’s light and warm and start playing in the garden with my kids again. Fun times!

  3. I look forward to the flowers coming through, dafodills and crocus, they really brighten the garden and make me look forward to summer.

  4. I love it when the warmer weather arrives and I can get out into the garden and start planting for summer colour , The brighter days always cheer me up

  5. I love being able to go out into the garden and watching the birds who are getting busy with nesting preparations.

  6. The warmer weather making it more enjoyable to be outside. I am always out and about with my son when it is nice.

  7. I’m looking forward to some warmer weather so that I can come out of hibernation and take the kids and the dog out to the park.

  8. To see the flowers start to bloom, I love Spring especially as my daughter was born in Spring, and it always reminds me of hope for new and better beginnings.

  9. I love the fact that I can get out into the garden, and start gardening again, rather than just keeping things ticking over in the garden, which I do during the winter months. Also love to see the newly born lambs in the fields. Joyous.

  10. Definitely the spring flowers! Love the yellows and purples of the daffodils and crocuses. Also love seeing the blossom tree flowering in our local churchyard reminds me of when i got married and we had photos took standing beside it x

  11. I love it in Spring when the evenings get lighter and i can get outside in the garden more and start planting my seeds in the greenhouse and see all the bulbs and bedding plants start to make their first appearance

  12. I know it is Spring when I don’t need the car headlights on to drive to and from work. I like us to go for an evening stroll where we can chat about our day without the stress of making meals, attempting to keep tech switched off and fighting over bedtime!

  13. My dad has a farm so my 3 year old and i are looking forward to helping with the lambing season, nothing cuter than a little lamb!

  14. I love the fact that the weather is nicer the little ones can walk,scoot and cycle everywhere and we can adventure back out side again with out being frozen!!!

  15. Milder weather so when we take the dogs out it’s not a military operation to get everyone wearing hats, scarves and glovew

  16. I love Spring. My favourite part of it is seeing the magnificent cherry blossoms in parks and gardens in all their wonderful forms.

  17. Spring is my favourite time of the year, longer daylight hours means no more going to work in the dark and arriving home in the dark. my favourite thing about spring though has to be seeing all the spring lambs in the nearby fields. I am also looking forward to getting back in to the garden, love it when the flowers begin to bloom.

  18. I can’t wait to be able to get up for work not having to drag myself out of bed in the freezing cold darkness! Bring on Spring!!

  19. I love lighter nights, the smell of freshly mown grass and the buds showing on the trees, hinting at the beauty to come.

  20. Im looking forward to the lighter evening, spending some time in the garden and having some lovely walks, also love seeing the daffodils

  21. The opportunity to get into the garden to tend to the flowers and grow our own collectively. Well, until the girls find a worm to explore with or a family ants to watch! Always finish off with a game of tig!

  22. Love waking up in the morning and it’s not pitch dark and being able to go for a walk in the evening after tea when it’s still light x

  23. I am looking forward to the days beginning to get longer and warmer, with flowers growing to add colour to our gardens

  24. Spring gives us the opportunity to do so much more family stuff that is much harder in the bad weather or dark evenings of winter. We have usually done ‘indoor activities’ so much over winter that it’s great to be able to get out in Spring and do a whole world of different things together.

  25. I can’t wait for the daffodils and tulips to be in full bloom so I can get some beautiful photos of my daughters playing in them.

  26. Definitely the day light and we love seeing all the new life too with all the pretty flowers and baby lambs 🙂

  28. I am looking forward to being able to leave the house without being completely bundled up and watching my little girl run around in her t-shirts!!

  29. For me its the longer days. More daylight in the ealry morning and the evening, means a lot more time to get things done, and time to enjoy yourself.

  30. Lighter nights and warmer weather. I’m looking to start running in the park after work, but currently it’s dark, so a lighter night would help with that.

  31. Everything looking brighter, no more dreary winterness. Flowers starting to bud, lighter nights & lighter mornings. The tiny bit of sunshine on my skin. The smell of cut grass. Caravan season starts again in the spring, which we love

  33. Better weather to be getting out and about on bikes and playing games in the park..the start of planting things in the garden with the kids too

  34. We live to visit the farm nearby and pet all of the baby animals. Your allowed to pick them up and sit and snuggle with them. It’s very precious to watch your children with them x

  47. the colours of spring when the flowers start showing, yellow daffodils are always my favourite spring flower and i treat myself to some from the super market every now and then. i love hearing the birds and i love the longer days.

  48. Nothing better than being able to take the little ones out for a walk in the Bluebell Woods and to the local farm seeing all the newborn animals which they are allowed to feed. Once we have had family days out to both then we really feel that Spring is here.

  49. I’m looking forward to seeing people wear more colour. As a nation we all seem to retreat to blacks & greys during the Winter months so it’s nice to see the lighter, more colourful gfashions appearing.

  50. Spring actually puts some zest back into my life after a long cold winter and that’s what I look forward to . I always feel happier when spring arrives .

  64. I’m looking forward to being able to spend more time with my baby nephew and his big sister – the winter makes it difficult to see them as much as I’d like as my health deteriorates then.

  65. I’m looking forward to the warmer weather, seeing the flowers and trees start to blossom and the annual spring clean which I find therapeutic (and totally benefits the charity shops too)

  72. The slight nip in the air accompanied by sunshine and flowers in full bloom, Needless to say it is my favourite season of the year.
