Red Gum – Beach tents – Review

Red Gum – Beach tents – Review

Beach day fun!

In collaboration with Red Gum
.
Hey everyone,
As you all know my family and I love the beach and we would spend every day there if we lived nearer to one.
About a week before our trip to the New South Wales South Coast, a lovely little new business called Red Gum reached out to me and asked if I would like to collaborate with them. When I saw that they were selling cute baby beach tents I thought they looked amazing and so handy! I, of course, said yes!

Red Gum sells a range of beach tents, beach pool tents and sleep tents for your little ones to enjoy at the beach, park or even in your back garden. They are UV protected and they come with pegs so that it stays secure to the ground. They have about 7 different designs for you to choose from too. These beach tents come in circular zipped bags with carrying handles so that you can carry them easily to the beach. The tents are easily foldable and can be flat-packed into the bags without any hassle. They are so light that even the kids can carry them for you! 😎

Another awesome thing about the tent is that if you dig a hole in the sand and place your tent over the top where the pool insert is, you can actually fill the small insert with water or sand so your little bub can have fun whilst being protected from the sun 😁

The tents range from $49.95 but at the moment Red Gum is having a spring clearance sale and has a 20 per cent off happening right now!


My kids absolutely loved having their picnic in the beach tents and told me how cool they thought it was. Michael was very tired and teething and had a little nap in the baby sleep tent which worked out really handy for us too! If you are planning a beach day then I highly recommend these tents for your day out!


For more info go follow @red_gum_contriving who will happily assist you with any inquiries you may have

Thanks again Red Gum.

Maths Online – 3 monthly review

Maths online – In colloboraion with Maths Online


Hi Everyone,


For the last 3 months, my family and I have been using the 12-month family membership with maths online. My children are really happy using this program! I have never seen them so excited about math before so I’m definitely a very happy mum right now! Over the next 9 months, I will be updating you on their ongoing progress with the program We are so happy with how everything is going. Maths has just become a fun subject in our household thanks to Maths Online!


How it works:

Each of the 1,400+ Maths Online tutorials lasts around 4-9 minutes and present the concepts of the maths lesson step-by-step. Using synchronized audio and animation which harnesses both audio and visual learning styles simultaneously. Maths Online lessons can be studied at home or at school and all devices. Obviously, no one can force a young person to study maths, but what they have done here is provide materials that are interesting and stimulating in themselves, and which will encourage the student, once started, to continue studying.

What we love about it:


What we love about the program so far are the video tutorials that you can listen to before each lesson. the tutorial explains the lesson very well and even shows you a few examples to help you. I also love that I am able to set tasks and keep track of my children’s progress.


Our progress so far:


We have really been enjoying the program so far. Everyone has been learning so much. They know so much about Algebra and place-value now which is awesome!I I noticed a big change in their results from 3 months ago until now. The children’s scores were averaging between 20 and 50 per cent and now 3 months on most of their scores are between 75 and 90 per cent! This math program is working and I couldn’t be prouder of my children! We are so thankful to the team at math online! You really have much such a huge impact on our home-school education.

Klorane XL dry shampoo – review

Klorane XL dry shampoo – review

Hi everyone,

As a busy mum of 9 children and a woman with extremely thick hair, I don’t have a lot of time to do my hair in the mornings and just usually rock a mum bun most days. I am always on the lookout for quick and easy hair care product’s to fit into my busy schedule.

Klorane is Backed by 50 years of botanical expertise Klorane laboratories, best known for its extensive range of botanical hair care, is now proudly announcing it’s new XL dry shampoo.

Recently, I was introduced to this amazing new XL Klorane dry shampoo with oat milk. I was so excited to try it! The packaging is very simple but elegant and is also very light-weight and you could even carry it in your handbag fi you wanted. Its perfect for when you are on the go.


Did you know that these dry shampoos are so incredibly popular that one is sold every 10 seconds somewhere in the world?! How awesome is that! This formula is vegan-friendly and ultra-gentle. It’s cleansing properties use a combination of highly absorbent agents that act as sponges to help soak up dirt or serbum on the scalp. The softening and protecting agents work with pure plant extracts, leaving your hair feeling refreshed, volumized, as well as looking and smelling clean

Klorane shampoos are free from preservative, silicone, triclosan and animal-origin ingredients.


A fellow super mama and inspirational woman, Rebecca Judd who is the ambassador of Klorane, she advises to simply spray the dry shampoo onto your roots in sections from a 15cm-distance. Then leave it in for 2 minutes, allowing the excess oils to be absorbed. Then brush through your hair to remove any residue. It’s a s simple as that!

I personally have been using this dry shampoo for about a week now and my hair has never felt or looked better! It’s quick and easy to use and it smells so fresh. It also leaves my hair looking clean and smooth. I’ve always been so skeptical about dry shampoos but I’ve finally found one that works amazingly well for me. You have to try is because its incredible! My hair care routine just got easier with the Klorane dry shampoo.

Australian Outback Spectacular

Australian Outback Spectacular

AUSTRALIAN OUTBACK SPECTACULAR
.
Hey everyone on Tuesday night last week my family and I went to the Australian outback spectacular dinner and show. Upon our arrival, we were given free hats and had our photos taken which you had the option of purchasing at the end of the show. We were taken to our seats and we had a 3-course meal and drink refills bought out during the duration of the show. Did you know that 1000 meals are served by 40 stock-men and women in under 7 minutes! How incredible is that?
.
THE SHOW.
Embark on a journey to the heartland of Australia through an all-new show featuring true Australian characters, a trans-formative arena, mesmerizing animals and immersive technology. Delve into the gripping tale of two struggling Aussie farmers, Reg and Marge, and rejoice with them as the community’s courage, bravery and generosity help them overcome a stunning, yet unforgiving life on the land. With the help from some unlikely characters and friendships that will last a lifetime, the pair overcome the harsh realities of life on the land.
Australian Outback Spectacular’s Heartland takes guests on a compelling and emotional ride into the heart of the Australian bush.
.
OUR THOUGHTS
.
My family and I thoroughly enjoyed the dinner and show, We have never seen anything like this before. We are just country folk!
We had a great night and were entertained throughout the show.
We felt a little lost towards the end of the show, I guess we felt a bit overwhelmed with everything that was happening, which is a good thing as it kept us entertained. The show is fantastic and the animals and the light shows were absolutely incredible. You can see how much time and effort that goes into these shows. I highly recommend seeing it if you are visiting the Gold Coast.
We will definitely see the show again one day.
We did leave 10 minutes before the show ended as we wanted to be one of the first people to get a @uber_australia Back to our holiday resort.
Thanks for a fun night out Australian Outback spectacular

We recently collaborated with an amazing family owned company called : https://artisangiftco.com.au/ They sell amazing keepsake gifts and prints. My family and I, quickly fell in love with their products. What I love is that they put so much love, care and attention into their products and it truly shows how passionate they are about what they create for us. They are creating and designing products that we will love and cherish forever.

About arts and gift co

The Artisan Gift Co. was established in 2018 with the idea of creating hand made keepsake gifts that will last a lifetime. Starting off with hand made prints, they have grown their range and added decor, toys and gifts but they have and continue to stay true to what they’re all about: hand made and high quality. They are not wrong there either because their products are incredible!

The unique and beautifully hand made gifts you buy from The Artisan Gift Co will be so special and will be something you and your family will cherish for many years to come and nothing is more special then a beautifully handmade keepsake you can share with your loved ones.

My family and I received 2 wonderful products from The Artisan Gift Co.

My little Mikey with his personalized storybook cushion
  1. Was the ever so beautiful Personalised story book range cushion – Bicycle design : https://artisangiftco.com.au/collections/kids-decor/products/storybook-cushion-customised-bicycle .

This is a fully personalised cushion. The cushion also features a small paragraph on the back which really cute and gives it that story feel. They retail at $85.00 and afterpay is also available. The quality and design of this product is absolutely impeccable and I know that my son Michael will cherish this for many years to come.

2. The next thing was the family name print keepsake. https://artisangiftco.com.au/collections/family-keepsake/products/family-surname-keepsake-print

Family surname keepsake print with rose gold foil

I wanted to have something special and meaningful that I could proudly place in my house and this was the perfect idea. This is the perfect definition to what a family is. This is what we have written on our print:

  1. a group of people related by blood or united through friendship and love.
  2. . the result of two people falling in love.
  3. the ones you live for, laugh with, support, forgive and love unconditionally with all your heart. You can also choose what color foil you want for the the big capital letter of your surname on the top of the print. We went with rose gold as it’s my favorite color. We absolutely love our keepsake print. It’s very special and I already have it up in my living room with all of our other family photos. You can also have other themes for your keepsake print just contact someone in their friendly team who will happily assist you.

We are so thrilled with our personalised products and have never had anything like this before, so a very big thank you to The Artisan Gift co for gifting my family and I these beautiful keepsakes. At the moment they have 10 percent of site-wide all you need to do is use the code : 10SITEWIDE. They also have afterpay available.

Staying hydrated and supporting mental health

Staying hydrated and supporting mental health



Hi everyone,

Recently I have been working really hard getting back into my fitness regime. I have been going on early morning runs and I am back to eating keto-friendly foods. One of my biggest downfalls, when I’m trying to keep fit, is not drinking enough water! I’m terrible at remembering! Recently I was scrolling through Instagram and had stumbled across @realactivemovenent They sell big beautiful and unique water bottles and accessories. I purchased a purple 1.4L bottle and I have filled it up twice a day every day for the last 7 days and I am very proud of myself for remembering! It’s big enough and I don’t think I will forget to drink water anytime soon! 😉
Did you know that 10% of the proceeds from every sale is donated to their incredible mental health charity partners. How awesome is that!


I haven’t spoken about this topic much but I too have struggled with my mental health over the years due to different life challenges being thrown my way. But it needs to be spoken about alot more and I will do all I can to help with this. I am very happy to support such a great movement. It’s important to always support each other and be kind always. You can never truly know what a person is going through in their life. Your kindness and support will go such a long way.

Maths is not their favourite subject and if i’m honest it’s not mine either, however,  it’s important that we work hard at mathematics because we will be using  these skills for the rest of our lives! The children often find their workbooks boring and lose interest very quickly! I decided it was time to try a different method of learning.
