New – Notabag Kids and Adults Eco Friendly Tote and Backpack

Paying for carry bags these days is a thing. A thing we hate. So in come this raft of re-usable tote/carry bags made of cotton, often printed with fun and stylish messages. Good to go. Or are we? Let’ start with a conundrum. What to do when you cycle to work, pit stop at M&S to get supper, and then have to navigate balancing bags of shopping on your bike to go home and cook? Tote – Shmote. This, does not work.

Buglet- Wearable Bug Deterrent

My blood is to mosquitos what chocolate cake is to me: Delicious.

We all know the agony of an unscratched mosquito bite, and for kids, it is especially hard to resist clawing at their limbs especially if it offers a release. We’ve all tried the preventative sprays and creams but there is something poisonous about the smell, and who can be bothered the play the game of ‘catch the kid running away from the spray’ – not me! Plus do they ever really work?

Introducing Buglet, a stylish slap-on bracelet for kids that deters midges, mozzies, and other biting insects which is available to purchase from Treehouse Kid & Craft.

Protect Your Kids Eyes with Proper Sunglasses this Summer

Now, I know it is hard to believe, but summer is almost upon us. And whether you are jetting off to sunnier climes (ha -not that anywhere in the world is less sunny) or having a staycation – it’s not only your kids delicate skin that needs proper protection from the harmful rays of the sun – but also, and very importantly, their eyes. Here’s a fact for you that’s a little bit shocking actually – 80% of a person’s lifetime UV exposure happens before the age of 18. This kind of freaked me out.

I chatted to the opticians at Smartbuyglasses Optical to get their tips on how to protect kids eyes properly. “The best way to protect your kids’ eyes is to buy (and always wear) sunglasses with 100% protection against UVA and UVB rays. Many brands, both expensive and inexpensive offer this protection – there’s a lot of choice. But the key, is to make sure to check the label. Sunglasses, just like sunscreen, come with different sun protection factors. In order to provide our eyes the best protection, we must first understand how our sunglasses eta-i.org/cialis.html protect us.”

“UV protection categories range from 0-4, with 0 offering no protection and 4 offering the best protection available. In Europe, lenses with the certification ‘CE’ have passed EU regulation and are deemed fit for use in most conditions. When picking your sunglasses, you should always take these labels into consideration and keep your kids’ eyes protected whenever the sun is shining.”

So as a kindness for such helpful information, I promised them I would choose my Top 5 sunglasses. So here we are with our Top 5 kids sunglasses to protect their peepers in style.
