Photo Book Review: Blurbs Books Part 2

Before Christmas I wrote part one of my Blurb Books Photo book review which can read here.

The book arrived in plenty of time and looked brilliant (I forgot to take a picture of it). It was a present for my dad from his grandchildren and he loved it.

The pictures looked great and the book was great quality. It was packaged well and arrived in perfect condition. I would use them again for photo books.

You can also make ebooks, magazines and diaries. Prices start from £1.99 and its so simple to use.

Win a Vicks Goody Bag

Just before Christmas Vicks sent a goody bag and it came in really handy! We had stonking colds and these were a life saver.

The bag contained:

  • A Steam Inhaler
  • VapoPads for the Steam Inhaler
  • An essential Oils Plug-in Vapouriser
  • A Comfort Flex PBA-free thermometer
  • An antibacterial Cartridge for Vicks Humidifier
  • A demineralization Cartridge for Vicks Humidifier
  • 1 soft toy
  • 1 thermometry leaflet
  • 1 air treatment leaflet English
  • A Winter Health Guide
  • A brochure with Dr. Jen’s Tips

Being pregnant I can’t take any cold and flu medication I found the steam inhaler fantastic, it really helped clear my nose and chest. The plug in was perfect in BG’s room and really helped her sleep at night.

We also used the thermometer which works super quick and it lights up so great at night.

I have an extra goody bag to giveaway to one lucky winner.

Photo Book Review: Blurb Books Part 1

I was sent a £30 credit from Blurb Books to create a photo book for Christmas. We like giving photos on this house.

You can create your book online or download the software to your computer. I always find it easier to download the software as you can save what you have done so far.

I was anticipating a long night but it actually took less time than they normally do. The photos download really quickly and it’s really easy to move them around and choose where you want them to go.

You can choose from several page layouts and add text if you wish. It took me about an hour to do a 20 page book.

Ordering was painless and the book was just under £30 with P&P

You can upload photos from your PC, Facebook, instagram and picasa.

I can’t wait to see the finished book which you will see in part 2!

Psst you can save up to 20% until 13th December

Sponsored Video: How Often Do You Change Your Toothbrush?

We all know we should change our toothbrush every three months but do we? I have been guilty of leaving it longer, though I am a lot better now since having a child. BG’s gets changed more often as she tends to chews hers so they don’t last that long.

Did you also know that you should change your toothbrush when you’ve had a cold? The germs stay around afterwards, no wonder the often come back!

Does your toothbrush need changing?

Warner Bros DVD Review: Big Top Scooby Doo and Tom & Jerry Trick or Treats

Half term was a tough one for us, both BG and I where ill. Warner Brothers send us a Halloween inspired box of treats including Big Top Scooby Doo and Tom & Jerry Trick or Treats DVD’s which was a life line. We had watch our other Tom & Jerry DVD about 6 times already I was starting to go a bit bonkers.

Tom & Jerry Trick or Treats

This DVD is now on constant loop in our house! A mix of old and newer episodes of Tom & Jerry they have a spookish theme to them. There are 22 episodes on this DVD and gets the big thumbs up from BG.

At £5.99 it’s a real bargain and guarantees some peace and quiet while it’s on.  

Big Top Scooby Doo

Those pesky kids have found another mystery to solve.

When Scooby and the gang hear of a werewolf plaguing a traveling circus, they go undercover as circus performers to get to the bottom of the mystery. Things soon go from bad to worse when the number of werewolves starts increasing, and the members of Mystery Inc. realize they might be in danger of turning into these monstrous beasts themselves

We both really enjoyed this film; it’s a good Scooby Doo mystery with a few red herons and a good twist at the end.  A good family film whatever time of the year.

Warner Bros DVD Review: Rock of Ages

“Rock of Ages” tells the story of small town girl Sherrie and city boy Drew, who meet on the Sunset Strip while pursuing their Hollywood dreams. Their rock ‘n’ roll romance is told through the heart-pounding hits of Def Leppard, Foreigner, Journey, Poison, REO Speedwagon, Twisted Sister and more.

I wasn’t quite sure what to expect from this film I had read mixed reviews but decided to watch it myself and make up my own mind.

The story line isn’t the strongest, it’s a bit wishy washy in places but it didn’t stop me from enjoying the film. The music is full on cheesy rock which is right up my street. Tom Cruise who I am not the biggest fan off is quite frankly hilarious, I am not sure if he is supposed to but he made me laugh.

Catherine Zeta Jones is brilliant in this film though my favourite story line involves Russell Brand (with the worse brummy accent) and Alex Baldwin.

Yes this a cheesy and predictable film but it doesn’t stop it being fun to watch.
