Educational Play with Schleich I'm a big fan of learning through play. Unforced educational play. I'm not a teacher and I don't want to be. I want my children to naturally learn whilst they are having fun. When I was contacted recently...

Right As Rain…

Is it me or is it always raining at the moment? Particularly when its time for the school run? The showers seem to always kick off just as I step out of my car, and it generally results in a wet mummy and two wet boys. I’m beginning to think I need to start leaving emergency rain gear in the car at all times. I mean I tend to have coats lying around in the car anyway, I just never seem to have the right coat for the right conditions. Clearly I need to be more organised.

The lovely Joules have a new “Right As Rain” range out at the moment, perfect for the inclement British weather, with designs sure to brighten up our school run. I am severely tempted to get my boys matching coats for the first time and purchase two of these Showerproof Jackets.
Joules-SharkI think my boys would look super cute in these, though Little Dude might have to wait till he’s a bit bigger first. Joules, you need to make this in a size 2 years please! I think the Shark print is really cool and no doubt my boys would look gorgeous in this coat. There are of course beautiful patterns for the girls too but I don’t think my boys would be particularly keen to wear this, do you?

Joules-GirlsCoat

Maybe a bit too floral for their liking. Now of course if the boys are getting cute coats then surely Mummy deserves one too… best go take a look hadn’t I?

Product Review: Colour Changing

Colour Changing offer a wide range of products which, as the name suggests, change colour. They sent me a couple of items to try out, and offer my readers the chance to win.

UV Nail Polish: Apricot to Red Apple
The first product was a nail varnish. This nail varnish brushes on like any other and is a soft apricot colour when it dries. You need to use this varnish as either a top coat or alone because when you go out into the sun and the UV rays hit your nails it transforms into a bright red apple shade! Made by Solar Active the varnish is strong and chip resistant, as well as providing UV protection to avoid discolouration. It is removable with any usual varnish remover. Whilst its a fun product to wear – ideal for parties, fancy dress or dressing up games with little girls – its not something to wear everyday. The colour change is fast and very impressive, but I don’t think its something to go to work wearing for example!

London Skyline Colour Changing Umbrella
Next up was an umbrella. Living in the UK means it rains more often than not, so an umbrella is a handbag essential. There is no reason however for that umbrella to be dull. This black and white umbrella features a white silhouette of the London skyline around the edge. As it rains and the umbrella becomes wet the white skyline turns a mix of bright colours. Designed by Squid Of London, and inspired by Jackson Pollack, this is more than an umbrella, its a functional piece of art. As someone who visits London regularly and has been caught out in more than my fair share of rain showers, this is now a permanent feature in my handbag!

Competition!
To win your choice of colour changing nail varnish AND a London skyline umbrella just head over to the Colour Changing Facebook page and “Like” it . Then head back here and let me know you’ve done it by commenting below. A winner will be chosen from all entries on Friday 28th September received by 8pm.
