A monstrously healthy breakfast from BEAR

Tuesday, 10 March 2015

With two teenagers, a tween, & one in training as well as our nearly 5-year-old, finding something healthy for breakfast that will appeal to everyone can be a bit of a chore. We are huge advocates of BEAR products in this house, I love their no added nonsense range of snacks and cereals and am happy that I can hand them to the kids for breakfast on the go or for a snack in their packed lunch and know that they aren't consuming anything unhealthy. The BEAR Alphabites cereals contain no refined sugar, and are naturally high in calcium so I can pop some in a little pot for them to enjoy as a crunchy snack, or they can have them in a bowl with milk before they head off for a hard day of learning.

Made from just six ingredients, Alphabites are available in two delicious recipes - multigrain, and cocoa - and right now kids can be taken on a journey into 'Monsterbet City' with 26 special backs of pack to discover, find Horace the Hairsniffler with his horrendous haircuts, Sly the Slippery Spynoodler who loves socks, or even Barney the Bin Bellied Bloover!

Or perhaps, they could come up with their own?

Visit and download the 'Make Your Own Monster' template, and enter BEAR's monster design competition to win some fabulous prizes.

In every promotional pack you'll find 4 free Monsterbet magnets, why not collect them all! BEAR products can be purchased from leading chains including Sainsbury's, Tesco, Waitrose, Ocado and The Co-Op as well as many small and independent suppliers.

A Frozen Fan's 5th Birthday Gift Guide

Monday, 9 March 2015

Like almost every other little girl (& boy) up and down the country, E has been enchanted by Disney's Frozen and Princesses Elsa & Anna of Arendelle. At Christmas one of the (many) things on her wish list for Santa Claus was a Snow Glow Elsa Singing Doll - sadly, such was the demand for them at the time I was unable to find one for her, but she was still delighted with all of the wonderful gifts that she did receive.

Next month E will be turning 5 years old, and so I have put together a little gift guide for the Frozen fan in your life for anyone in need of some inspiration. The House of Fraser have a huge range of toys and games (not just Frozen related!), and have very kindly sent E the present that was on the top of her list. Just take a look at that face!

The Snow Glow Elsa Singing Doll (currently on sale for £34.99) is just as beautiful as her on-screen self, with a shimmering glittery gown & jewelled necklace that lights up as she sings the hit song from the movie, "Let it Go". The doll, recommended for children aged 3 and above, is every bit the quality toy that you would expect from Disney and E has had hours of fun creating her own stories with her Snow Glow Elsa, she even comes with her own little Olaf! A must-have for any Frozen fanatic, and I am so happy that she finally has her much longed-for toy.

We are now left with the dilemma of what to buy for her, and these are just a few of my favourite things from House of Fraser. The Frozen lunch box - which at the moment is half price at just £4 - is a practical option which would still be well received, and what could be better than a matching Frozen rucksack? Under £10, & the perfect school bag.

E loves sitting down quietly and working on puzzles, and the Disney Frozen 50pc jigsaw at only £6 would be a lovely addition to her collection as well as offer some peaceful coffee time for me, and the Queen Elsa Styling Head would be a huge hit and potentially also save me from losing my own hair due to E's enthusiastic hairdressing practice...

E received a complimentary Snow Glow Elsa for review purposes.
