Trutex School Uniform Review



Got to admit so far I've been rather lucky with uniform. my sons I have always got from the supermarket and the badged school jumpers from school. They have lasted the year and the only things I tend to have to replace is shoes and polo shirts. 

Lexie started school nursery in September and I wanted to get her in the routine of uniform. She  has an obsession with skirts and dressing up dresses so with a uniform it wouldn't matter so much if it got paint on or grubby. In September I got all the uniform from the same place but decided to get her cardigans from there too as she didn't really need the badged ones. I'm actually horrified with the results after two months of wear. They are out of shape, very discoloured and the arms seems to have shrunk.  

Trutex got In touch with me and asked if I would like to review a skirt, polo shirt and cardigan. Initially I got the next size up and to be totally honest I shouldn't of, I should of stayed with her normal size. 

The junior stitch down pleat skirt in navy was our first item. The skirt Is a simple pleated design that's comes just above the knee.



 It has a waist adjuster inside so you can loosen and fasten it tighter. I had to put it on highest setting so it should last her a while. It just fits nice with her polo shirt tucked in. 




The school you can wear the white or light blue polo shirts, but I've found the white ones go discoloured so we went for the Polo shirt in sky blue. Compared to the supermarket brand the polo shirt is thicker and of a better quality I've seen so far. It doesn't seem to crease as easy as the other polo shirts I have. 



The Cardigan Sweat in royal blue is really thick and has a fleecy warm lining. Its a simple button front cardigan, with a ribbed bottom and cuffs. I do like the quality of the cardigan and even though it's big at the moment it still fits her well. 



The uniform has been worn and washed at least three times and at the moment seems good as new. No ink ran out in the wash, no colour loss or bobbling. I'm thinking now maybe it may be better to splash out on the cardigans and get a better quality so I'm not having to replacing them every few months.

Trendy Tot Thursday - (#TT_Thursday)



Trendy Tot Thursday is back, where you can showcase your trendy tots's outfits. Pick an outfit from in the week, snap some pictures and post! 


Lexie has a huge amount of pretty clothes that she won't put on. She likes skirts and character tops. Which she will wear over and over again. I'm dreading the older years if she is like this at 3. 

Outfit this week, she was rocking the leopard print.




The leopard print pumps from £3 from the H&M sale, I got them in a size up last year and they fit her now.



The tights was a pack of two again from H&M, they are pretty thin like a 60 Denier type. These was £2 in the sale also.

The dress was an eBay purchase from a Hong Kong shop on there. It cost £3.80 and I got the next size up ( 5-6) and it fits her well.

We Got Monsterfied And Met The Honey Monster.


So Honey monster puffs aka sugar puffs have had a whole new makeover from top to toe. Th brand new Honey Monster Puff’s recipe with 20% more yummy honey than before. They have swapped sugar for natural sweetness of honey.



I'm gonna hold my hands up now and admit sugar puffs is a brand I know but it something I would of never bought for my children. I remember watching a food show a few years back and cereals was mentioned and sugar puffs was in the top three worse ones for sugar. 

When I was asked to go and check out the new honey monster puffs, I was surprised they have changed the cereal to make it better and healthier. The new packs feature a delicious new recipe with 20% more yummy honey than before. At the same time, they have reduced the overall sugar level and have added clearer nutrition information front-of-pack, so you know exactly what’s in there and what’s not. 

Once home and I compared to cereals in the cupboard I was pretty surprised honey monster puffs was around the same in nutritional value. The taste itself is the normal classic taste that it always has been.


Honey monster the star of a brand new TV commercial AND on the road for a MONSTER adventure.

The new adventure begins in Birmingham’s Bullring Shopping Centre on 24th January 2015 from where I’ll be appearing in major shopping complexes in the Midlands throughout February. On 1st March 2015 my grand tour finishes in style at Star City in Birmingham, the ultimate venue for MONSTERFIED family fun! Check out the timetable below for your chance to meet the Honey Monster.



Come and meet him, we did! 



Lined  up an exclusive photo shoot where we will have #funmonsterfied snapping will samples of the new honey monster puffs too. Bring your family, meet-up with your friends!

When fun unites people, that’s fun monsterfied. Happily brought together, by the honey inside.

Pop In A Box January 2015 & Unboxing



See my previous posts on Pop In A Box Here & Here 

Just before Christmas I upped my sub up to two pops. If you haven't heard of Pop In A Box before it's basically a subscription service where you get sent a mystery pop a month. You can have up to six pops delivered. On the website you thumbs up the pops you really want, thumbs down the ones you would hate and the ones you aren't to fussed about leave neutral. So you are guaranteed a pop you are going to love with the surprise of not knowing which one.

 This month I thumbed up a few pops I knew the kids would enjoy to, as they also want to collect pops. Included every month is the chance to get sent a special or limited edition higher value pop. As long as you have the item thumbed up, you will have a chance. 

This month I was so delighted with what we received in the post, two pretty awesome pops! A metallic Twilight Sparkle My Little Pony & a disappearing Cheshire Cat. You all know why an avid My Little Pony fan Lexie is so she was over the moon with her new pop, which now brings her total up to seven pops. 

I didn't think I would get two special pops with this month subscription, this month we was over  moon and we have just upped our subscription to three pops. Whoops! 



I did do a video of Lexie unboxing but I didn't have a chance to do or say anything before she dived in!
