Soooo, where were we? Well, it would appear that I’ve become the online goto woman for headlice related information – which is nice and I suppose fair, given my *ahem* previous condition. I have to thank the very lovely people at Hedrin who contacted me after that post and offered me a free trial of their new product – Hedrin Once – they claimed that it kills the lice AND the eggs by smothering them. And by jiminy it works! If you’ve got thick or long hair bear in mind that although this is a 15 minute treatment, don’t do it before heading out – rinsing it out takes a while. Nit free locks? Because you’re worth it…
Now I’m not saying that Interflora planned its entire blogger outreach campaign around me, but it was our wedding anniversary this week and the very next day I received the most gorgeous bouquet of flowers. All oranges, lime greens and creams – my favourite colour combinations. The best thing from my perspective is that they come from a good local florist and are delivered direct, rather than packaged up and stashed in a white van for the whole day before the driver can be bothered to drop them off. A really good example of a simple campaign, perfectly executed. Thank you Interflora.
It’s 11+ season here in Buckinghamshire where the grammar school system is still very much in effect. My eldest is currently in year 4 but we’re already staring down the barrel of the ‘next step’ and piling up the pennies in our bean can to pay for tuition fees. So when Trotman Publishing offered to send me some samples of Peter Williams brand new series of books – Practise & Pass 11+ AND to host a giveaway of a complete set of nine books, I couldn’t say no. Covering the four key 11+ subjects: verbal reasoning, non-verbal reasoning, maths and English, the series is split into three levels: Discover, Develop and Practice. To enter the giveaway, simply leave a comment below stating why you’d like the books.
I’m still grinning after being sent the Jamie Oliver knife set to review last month and happily have now been given the chance to share some Jamie love. His range of kitchenware is doing really well and it’s not hard to see why. It’s well priced, well made and does the job well – what more do you need? I’ve been using the vegetable peeler this week, and even went mad today and used one of the interchangeable heads to julienne a cucumber – I know, crazy! I’ve got three items to give away that the rather gorgeous English Mum has been reviewing over at her place; a Coarse Grater which is apparently super-sharp, a Twist ‘N’ Slide Apple Corer – ideal for sorting out all those mountain of cooking apples, and a Garlic Slice ‘n’ Press. To enter the giveaway, just leave a comment below stating which one you’d like and why.
I think we’re done. Still didn’t get my Land Rover, or a new tumble dryer or oven but I live in hope 😉
P.S You can also enter by email. AND it’s perfectly acceptable to request to be in the draw for all of the prizes 🙂
