DGJ Organics Wild N Crazy Range

As the new school year swiftly approaches, it’s time to start putting the finishing touches to the school uniform and PE kit.

As my daughter starts year 4, swimming is now on the agenda which means an extra PE kit twice a week. I will be packing DGJ Organics ‘Wild n Crazy’ range, a collection of hair products originally developed by celebrity hairdresser and colourist Daniel Galvin Junior ten years ago when there were very few organic hair care products available.

DGJ Organics

The DGJ collection contains no harsh chemicals with little or no foaming agents so don’t lather in the way that non-organic formulas with high levels of foaming agents do.

The Wild n Crazy range is a collection perfect for children at home and at school. The Swim All Over Wash has a reducing agent which is effective at neutralising the harmful affects of chlorine in swimming pool water (and chloride in sea water) so one for the PE kit if they have swimming lessons or for the suitcase when you’re next on holiday.

A new school term means a slow trickle of head lice letters being sent home so remember that prevention is better than cure and try the Kids Lice Repel Shampoo. It contains natural head lice repellents like Tea Tree and Lemon Eucalyptus to help the annoying critters at bay.

With prices starting at only £3.99 you can get salon quality products at a very reasonable price.

You can buy the collection online at www.dgjorganics.com.

Event: The Dinosaur Train Comes to Westfield

If you have a young boy (or girl), chances are he loves dinosaurs and probably watches Dinosaur Train on Nick Jr.

Dinosaur-Train-Westfield

Well, said train is coming to Westfield! On Tuesday August 19 (Westfield London) and Wednesday August 20 (Westfield Stratford), as part of Westfield’s ‘We are LDN Summer’ campaign, Buddy the T-Rex and his adopted pteranodon family will be entertaining shoppers with a new scientific adventure.

Live shows will take place throughout the day:
Westfield London: Tuesday 19th August – 11am, 12pm, 1:30pm, 2:30pm and 3:30pm
Westfield Stratford City: Wednesday 20th August – 11am, 12pm, 1:30pm, 2:30pm and 3:30pm

Wristbands will be given out from 9am on the morning of the show – see westfield.com/uk for more details. Bear in mind that wristbands are very limited so it’s worth arriving early to avoid small disappointed faces.

You can also check in on Facebook to the Dinosaur Train event on the day of the show to win a free Dinosaur Train DVD. All you have to do is show your Facebook check-in to the Concierge Desk and receive your free DVD. Simple!

F+F Childrenswear for Summer 2014

We, or should I say Lily, was lucky enough to be sent a few items from the F+F Childrenswear Summer 2014 collection.

The campaign was shot in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and after looking at the collection, it’s clear the design team were inspired by the patterns and colours native to Brazil.

F&F Children's SS14 2

The Summer 2014 childrenswear collection is F+F’s largest yet, with head-to-toe looks in a range of sizes.

F&F Children's SS14 7

Lily chose the animal print jacket shown here, the floral shorts, black and white vests (which you can never have too many of – such a wardrobe staple) and another floral jacket. I gave them a thorough inspection (a friend of mine used to work in garment technology so I know what to look for) and the clothes have been well made. They wash and iron well and most importantly, are little girl approved!

F&F Children's SS14 12

F&F collections are available in over 850 stores in the UK and over 2,000 globally. Items are available exclusively at F-F.com and selected Tesco Stores with prices starting from as little as £3!

Review: The Nut Job

Part of your summer holiday is probably going to involve taking the kids to the cinema (especially if it’s wet play) so it’s worth knowing what’s good and what’s not.

My latest recommendation is The Nut Job. The animated story follows Surly, a mischievous squirrel, who must plan a heist to get into his town’s biggest nut shop in order to help his pals in the park gather food to survive the winter. Together with his trusty sidekick, Buddy, he assembles a ragtag crew to help him get inside and of course, hilarity ensues.

We were lucky enough to go to an advance screening last Sunday and my kids loved The Nut Job! My daughter was at the edge of her seat the entire film! They both said it was really funny and their favourite character was the dog (I won’t spoil it by explaining why!)

In fact, both kids are asking to see it again! Parents might find it a bit childish but it’s 100% a kids film and a must see for the summer holidays. In fact it’s rare for a film to be solely targeted at kids which I think makes a refreshing change.

The voice cast includes Will Arnett (GOB BLUTH!!), Brendan Fraser, Katherine Heigl, Liam Neeson and Maya Rudolph.

The Nut Job is released in cinemas nationwide on Friday 1st August.
