Giveaway (Collaborative Post)¦ Sudocrem has been a staple in my home for my entire life. My parents used it as me on a baby, I used it on myself for spots in my teens and now I use it on my daughter. Yet, I didn’t know that its name evolved from an Irish pronunciation of ‘soothing cream’. Now, 88 years after its invention in Dublin, a new advertising campaign all about soothing has just been launched.
Giveaway¦ Did you know that a surprisingly high percentage of primary school children have never grown a sunflower or their own fruit and vegetables? Sudocrem’s Get Out and Grow campaign is working against this. I’m excited to be part of their latest incentive, in which you can win a gardening kit for your school!
Giveaway (Collaborative Post)¦ Whether it’s GCSEs, A Levels or SATs, end of year exams are always stressful for children. It’s important to make sure that they get enough sleep, food and drink in the run up to exams. Try to make sure they don’t study so much that they burn themselves either. Gently remind them that frequent breaks are healthy and actually help the brain to retain more. Perhaps you could buy treats for them to snack on for a boost in these breaks. Another little boost could be some new stationery!
Excitement is mounting about the semi-final of Strictly Come Dancing this weekend. We know who our semi-finalists are, and now we know what dances they’ll do to what music. The competition is close and we can only guess who will be victoriously holding that glitterball trophy on Saturday 15th December. Fortunately, once the final sequinned dress has left the stage at the grand final, the fun can still continue! The Strictly Come Dancing Board Game is a great game to play with all the family over Christmas to relinquish your post-Strictly blues.
I’ve been aware of Wilberry’s soft toys for some time now, as they sell them in a shop called Francis Iles which is local to me and is featured in my Kent Christmas shopping guide. These toys are made using beautiful materials and look and feel good quality. However, they are really affordable prices. Designed and produced by The Puppet Company, a new range called Wilberry Dancers has recently been released.
