Panda Drinks are an iconic brand, but I have only found out about them last month. The lovely people at Panda Drink sent Amy a fabulous little summer package with a lunch box, some of their most popular drinks as well as an activity booklet and a skipping rope that Amy had a lot of fun with in the garden.
The Panda Still Juice Drinks come in raspberry and blackcurrant flavours while Panda Splash, a fruit flavoured water, comes in both orange & pineapple and blackcurrant flavours. At 250ml per bottle, Panda Drinks are perfect for lunch boxes, picnics or a quick treat throughout the day with the sports cap meaning that they can be enjoyed when out and about without any annoying spills.
Amy is usually water-total, but every now and again she fancies a flavoured drink. Panda Drinks are naturally fruity, don’t contain any added sugar and use only natural colours making them a drink that I am completely happy to give to Amy. She particularly enjoyed the blackcurrant flavour – perfect for summer.
Panda Still Juice and Panda Splash are currently available in Asda, Tesco and Ocado priced at £1.99 for a six bottle multipack. Panda Squash is sold in Tesco, costing 99p for a one litre bottle. More info on the official Panda Drinks website.
A treat for me was this gorgeous metal tin from Ryvita designed by one of my favourite designers Ben de Lisi. I’ve written a whole blog post dedicated to his designs a while back and when Ryvita’s PR got in touch and offered to send me some goodies and the new tin, I just couldn’t say no.
Ben’s designs are bright, bold and my new tin is perfect to ensure my that my Ryvita crispbreads (Fruit Crunch is my current favourite) are kept crisp and fresh while giving my kitchen a pop of colour. The eye-catching tin has an abstract design with splashes of pink, green, orange, yellow and blue, along with Ben’s well-known signature on the side and costs £7.49 including packaging and postage. It’s available on the Ryvita website.
Love bubblegum and strawberry laces? Then you’ll love the deliciously smelling new products from Carex that we’ve tried over the last couple of weeks. Amy and I loved the Bubblegum Hand Wash and have already repurchased it. Yes, there’s been a lot of handwashing going on at Mummy Alarm HQ, because the new Carex range doesn’t only smell amazing, it also kills 99,9% of bacteria. The hand wash is very creamy and moisturising and perfect for little hands or those of grown-ups with sensitive or dry skin.
The second product that we tried from the Carex fun range was the Strawberry Laces Hand Gel. It’s bright pink, comes in an ordinary sanitiser bottle and smells much better than any hand gel that I’ve tried before. It doesn’t completely hide the scent of alcohol, but it’s much more appealing than any competitors. Which girl doesn’t like a bit of pink? It’s super handy and I’ve got it in my handbag now to fight germs, sticky hand rails or germ-ridden door handles in shopping centres.
Both products are available for around £1.50 and £1.80 in all big supermarkets or drug stores.
Another treat for me or in fact our fridge were these fab little photo magnets from Pic Stick. They’re a super cute way to spruce up any boring metal surface in your kitchen or around your desk and I really like how they’ve turned out. Each individual photo magnet is 50x65mm and 0.75mm thick and very durable – handy, if you’ve got a pre-schooler like mine that loves rearranging the magnets a minimum of twenty times a day.
The order process for your very own Pic Sticks is really easy. All you have to do is visit the Pic Stick website and upload photos from your computer, phone or apps and social networks that you are using. Once you’ve uploaded your favourite 9 pictures, crop them to your desired size, hit save and pay using one of the payment options.
We received our magnets within 2 working days, I was super impressed with that, and the picture quality is really great. The colours are bright and the images very clear. There are no issues with pixles whatsoever and I will definitely be getting some more Pic Sticks as stocking fillers and birthday presents for friends and family. They are affordable at £9.50 for a sheet of 9 magnets with free world wide shipping and I think they’re a unique and creative way to show off your favourite snaps. Thumbs up from us.
Also, make sure to keep your eyes open here and on my social media channels (links in the top right corner) over the next couple of days, as I’ll be giving away a Pic Stick voucher each to two lucky readers.
We received all of these products free of charge for the purpose of this review.
