Family movie nights

*This is a sponsored post. Opinions are my own

The summer holidays are here! My children break up from school tomorrow and we are very excited to spend time together. One of our favourite things to do in the evenings in the school holidays is to have movie nights about once a week. We'll choose a family film to watch, get some snacks, and have a lovely evening!

What better way to watch movies with the family than on a crystal clear Panasonic 4K TV. They make a range of 4K HDR TV's at different price points, and different sizes. You're bound to find one to suit your needs!

Our favourite films to watch with this kids at the moment are;

  • Trolls
  • Snoopy and Charlie Brown - The Peanuts Movie
  • Hotel Transylvania 2
  • Moana
  • The Lego Batman Movie 
My personal favourite out of these films has to be Fern Gully. I've mentioned it before, but it was a favourite of mine as a child. The rainforest, the fairies, learning about the importance of nature and dangers of pollution. The songs are catchy too!

With plenty of popcorn and a few sweets, movie nights at home can be just as fun as going to the cinema. Just a little less costly and we're able to pause for toilet breaks! I do love a cinema trip but I'm all about the home comforts, especially whilst I am pregnant with baby number 3.

Natural skincare for mum & baby

I got sent this amazing box of goodies from Kit & Kin


Kit & Kin was created by Emma Bunton & Christopher Money. Together they have built this brand supplying eco friendly, cruelty free products for both baby and mum.I was really happy to receive this box as I am now 16 weeks pregnant and starting to get bits for the baby, as well as needing a few bits for my changing pregnant body!

I was really impressed first of all with the packaging and labelling. It looks so lovely, and I will also be able to re use the bottles and pot. In fact the actual box and straw type packaging has already been claimed by my 9 year old for his crafting day at school!

The products I received were;

Bubble bath for baby - I've not used this one yet as it's being kept for when baby is here, but it has a nice light natural scent

Hair and body wash for baby - My older children (aged 9 and 7) used some of this for their showers this week, and said that it's left their skin super soft and fresh! So I tried some this morning and I don't think my skin has ever felt so soft after a shower without having to use moisturiser. I think we'll all be buying this in for all of us, and not just using it for the baby

Stretch mark oil - This one I couldn't wait to use. I get stretch marks easily but I'm hoping this may minimise them. It contains 15 natural oils, including sunflower, jojoba, strawberry and mandarin. It left my skin feeling great

Body oil for baby - Non greasy and full of natural oils. This will be ideal for giving baby little massages and keeping the skin soft

Breast balm - The website says this balm "cools, heals, and protects sensitive nipples" and I couldn't agree more. I'm at that stage in pregnancy where everything is growing and honestly, my nipples have already been so sore! The relief once applying this balm is instant.

I also got this totally amazing tote bag featuring Kit & Kin's fox design. Not only do they do these amazing skin products, they make eco friendly nappies featuring adorable animal designs. This fox being one of them! I will be storing all baby's toiletries in the tote bag.



So, if you have a baby, are having a baby, know someone with a baby - I completely recommend checking out Kit & Kin's range!
