Songmics Double Canvas Wardrobe Review and Giveaway

It’s not long until the boys go back to school and we have started to have a look at where we are going to hang all the shirts, jumpers and his new suit. Starting the senior year is a big event and we are all very excited. As the boys are getting older they are having more and more clothes between them and its all taking up so much space.

So, when Songmics offered us the chance to take a look at their Amazon store we were delighted to have the chance to browse. There is so much that they sell and we were so pleased to see this massive double wardrobe which we knew was just what we needed.

A huge bonus for you today is that I have a double wardrobe to giveaway! It’s such a super prize and so generous of Songmics. I’m over the moon to be able to offer this to you. The rafflecopter entry form is further down the post.

Songmics Double Canvas Wardrobe Review and Giveaway

My eldest son wanted to be in charge of putting together the wardrobe as it was for his room and I was pleased to let him! For once it was great to see clear instructions of how to put it together and what was even better was that all the pieces were there and labeled correctly. It was such a good start!

I left him to it and within 10 minutes look what he had done. He made a great start and there was a calm in the room that I was pleased to see. It helps that everything is in order and packed well.

Bit by bit he built it up and the wardrobe was starting to take shape.

Look at this, no bendy or wobbly bits, it’s perfect for the space too.

The structure is really sturdy and you can see and feel that it will stay together very well. There are two hanging spaces either side of a central shelving unit.

Once the inside of it is all put together then it was time to put the non woven fabric cover over it. That is a bit more of a two person job but still really quick.

The front covers are in three parts and roll up when you need them to and they have zippers so that you can close it up. There is plenty of space in it and as it carries a load of 5kg on the shelves and 15kg for the hanging space it will suit us down to the ground.

Bicycle First Aid Kit Review and Giveaway

We go on a fair amount of trips in our household which is great fun. The boys and my OH have been increasing the distance in their bike rides and I’ve been pretty blown away by how far they are managing to go on their boys outings. I’m not a massive lover of riding so that’s normally when I get in a bit of blogging time. Saying that, when we went to center parcs I loved it because I had an electric bike and the difference it made was amazing and I loved every second.

I always pack a first aid kit in the car so that I’ve got the essentials on hand should I need it. With my 2 boys there is often the odd graze, cut or sting to take care of.

I’ve never seen or had a bicycle first aid kit though. It was great therefore to try out these first aid kits from SJ Works specifically for attaching to bicycles and putting family first aid as the priority.

Aswell as being able to show you how good they look and to give our first hand opinion, I also have one of the saddle first aid packs to giveaway! You can see how to enter further down the post.

Bicycle first aid kit

Now as some of you may be aware, my OH has got a big trip coming up in the new year that will see him going off to New Zealand for a few weeks and spending quite alot of time on different cycling treks. He’s even taking his bike from here in the UK over with him so he’s pretty committed. I don’t think that my electric style of biking would go down too well over a long period and this is something for him to get out of his system while I will probably be doing something far more sedate like spa days and girly lunches!

He will be taking the saddle pouch first aid kit with him on his trip which gives me peace of mind. Him too but he’s far too butch to let on that much. Since it will deal with most minor first aid needs it is ideal to have on the bike. It’s better to have and not need than to deal with an accident and be left kicking yourself for not putting it on.

There is so much included in this SJ Works saddle pouch kit. Including:

1pcs An empty saddle bag
1pc American Red Cross First Aid Guide
6pcs Antiseptic Towelettes
5pcs Easy Access Bandage 3*1″—5pcs Easy Access Bandage 3/4*3″
5pcs Junior Easy Access Bandage 3/8×1.5″
5pcs Butterfly Wound Closures
2pcs Sterile Non-Adherent Pads 2″x3″
2pcs Sterile Non-woven sponges 2″x2″2pcs/pk 4ply
1pc Sterile Eye Pad
1pc Pressure Bandages 2″x2″
1pc Pressure Bandages 3″x3″
1pc Triangular Bandage 42″x42″x59″ nonwoven
1pc First Aid Tape Roll 1/2″x10yds.
1pc Emergency Blanket 38″x60″
1pc SJ Works Reflect strip

This one and their other products can also be found here to buy.

They also make this mini hard cased pack which is great for popping in any travel bag or glove compartment of your car.

Another nice little extra is that they have a 100% no questions asked money-back guarantee with a 30 days notice, so if it’s not right for you then just get in touch with them.

The larger SJ Works Classic Bicycle first aid kit has everything the saddle kit has and more! Even a little emergency bike light! They have thought of everything.

So after you have had a look at them, why not enter into my giveaway below and see if you can win one for yourself. Open to worldwide entrants.

Cucumber, Gogi Berry and Quinoa Super Salad

Today I’ve got a packed post filled with a vegetarian recipe, pictures from the garden and a healthy hamper giveaway. It’s an eclectic mix that I’d love you all to enjoy.

Like most of us I am usually busy and on the go, either to work, dropping the kids off of having to run some errand or other. I love it like that, it keeps me busy and happy. What I do have to remember is to eat well and I like to make sure that all of us at home have good food to keep us fueled up and healthy.

We grew cucumbers on our patio garden this year and have been amazed at how well they grew and how huge a cucumber plant actually gets, it’s massive. They took ages to germinate but once they got going they grew so fast. I have been using them fresh off the plant and really enjoyed creating new dishes for them to go in.

The additional ingredients today have been supplied by Indigo Herbs who sell organic and quality assured products. They have a huge range of foods with which they wish to inspire and motivate you on a journey to a healthier lifestyle. I spent ages on the site looking at all they have on offer including; natural health guides, superfoods, wholefoods, herbal teas, aromatherapy and lots lots more.

The cucumber plant that I’ve grown this year. It’s taking over the patio!

This Cucumber, Gogi Berry and Quinoa Super Salad that I am going to be showing you today is just the ticket to give a boost to your body that will help set you up for the rest of the day.

The Protein packed Tricolour Quinoa Grains are a great wheat free alternative to rice or pasta and I’m sure you’ll agree they give it a wonderful burst of colour.

I love the sprinkle of pine nuts at the end. These nuts have a beautiful sweet flavour and are soft to bite into. If you have any left over from the packet then you can use them in my carrot tops pesto sauce which can be set aside for later in the week. Pine nuts are actually the seeds from the pine tree and they contain a wealth of antioxidants, including vitamins A, B, C, D, and E.


The recipe is vegetarian, vegan and super healthy!
