Shoeps: An alternative to laces?

shoeps alle kleuren

 

Do your children HATE tying their laces? Does your footwear have THE longest laces in living history? Then seriously, you need to get your mitts on some Shoeps. Now I’m not one for gimmicks, I’ve seen the crazes come and go, everyone goes mad and basically that becomes your only choice when shopping but these are different. They aren’t just trendy and epically cool but they actually work, yes you heard me THEY WORK!

They come in this handy little package of 14 and are available in 11 different colours, including rainbow, YEAH RAINBOW! I wish I had noticed this before I chose the pink because believe me they are epic, who doesn’t want rainbow laces!

They are a rubberised stretchy material which clips on the underside with ease. There is enough give to get your feet in comfortably and allows movement when walking but are ridged enough to ensure the shoe doesn’t bag or feel to loose.

Fastening them into the lace holes is super easy and I had ‘laced’ both my Converse in less than five minutes. I honestly only wear Converse and as great as they are I literally hate how long the laces are on them, when I was young and cool it didn’t seem to matter where i shoved them, or cut them down but thats when I had the time to care where I shoved my laces. Now I just wanna throw my shoes on before taking the pooch for a walk or that frantic trip to the supermarket so I’d rather be able to slip into my shoes and not worry about tripping up and breaking my neck on said frantic trip to the supermarket.

They look awesome, are super comfy and at a reasonable £12.99 for a pack of 14 I’m sold. I bought the rainbow set here and are destined to go into a Converse make over for my daughter who is an avid My Little Pony lover, tutorial coming soon.

I’m now off to buy my entire family Shoeps just so I don’t have to hang around whilst everyone else ties their laces!

Organix Toddler Meals – Review

We have had the privilege of reviewing Organix Toddler Meals on several occasions over the years and they never disappoint.

The new additions consisting of soups and Mighty Meals is a real bonus for us. I have 3 very fussy eaters and at those times when I’m cooking something that not all of them will eat Organix come to my rescue, riding in on a white horse  *swoons*.

They are quick and easy to prepare, just a minute in the microwave,  and even though they are considered ready meals I know what I’m putting inside them is only going to do them good. They are perfect for taking to restaurants  or to friends when I know they are gonna be fussy about whats on offer. Some of them can even be eaten cold, which for very impatient little people is a major selling point.

My youngest has never been convinced these style of children’s meals, she’s more of a chicken nugget  kinda girl, but our middle daughter loves them to bits! She loves having the opportunity to choose her own meal and I know the portion size is just right and there are none of those nasties loitering about inside. We are yet to come across one that she doesn’t like!

The new fruit gummies where a massive hit, even with my 9 year old! Let’s just say they didn’t see out the day.

They are all big fans of  real fruit gummies and these are no exception! Full of flavour and kind to little bods you can’t go wrong. And a reassuring smile there from the Soil Association.

Organix have done it again with their wide range of choice and new additions, thumbs up from all here!

Olly The Little White Van – Review

Unknown-1

*Please note this post was written jointly by my 3 daughters, 4, 7 and 9*

Olly The Little White Van is a show about cars and Olly is helping them out in tricky situations etc. I like this type of programme because I like a happy ending and when everyone is nice to each other.

Scraed of Heights Episode: Recommended for ages 2-5 in my opinion.

It is full of fun for kids and there are loads of great songs, Justin Fletcher from Something Special does a voice over and I really like that as I think he’s really funny. I think it is also educational and it perfect for kids that love cars.

It gets 5 out of 5 from us!

Thanks for that girls!

If like me you know little about Olly you can find all about him here

The website is crammed full of educational and fun stuff from colouring in to games and we had loads of fun playing together.

We look forward to watching some more Olly the Little White Van!
