The Princess Bride 25th Edition On Bluray

Was rather excited to receive the The Princess Bride 25th edition on Bluray. I remember watching this on a VHS tape growing up, acting out scenes of the film and pretending to be princess buttercup. 

Celebrating 25 years of the fairytale adventure 'The Princess Bride', a young boy falls ill and is read a legendary bedtime story by his visiting grandfather that immediately comes to life. The story is a classic tale of love and adventure as the beautiful Buttercup is kidnapped and held against her will in order to marry the odious Prince Humperdinck. Her childhood beau Westley, now known as the Dread Pirate Roberts, attempts to save her. On the way he meets an accomplished swordsman, a super strong giant and a few bad guys to rescue Princess Buttercup.

This definitely brought back some childhood memory's, it's a film you must have in your collection a classic! 

 Out on Bluray on the 24th march

In 1979, the American embassy in Iran was invaded by Iranian revolutionaries and several Americans were taken hostage. However, six managed to escape to the official residence of the Canadian Ambassador and the CIA was eventually ordered to get them out of the country. 

With few options, exfiltration expert Tony Mendez devised a daring plan: to create a phony Canadian film project looking to shoot in Iran and smuggle the Americans out as its production crew. With the help of some trusted Hollywood contacts, Mendez created the ruse and proceed to Iran as its associate producer. However, time was running out with the Iranian security forces closing in on the truth while both his charges and the White House had grave doubts about the operation themselves. Based on true events.

I was quite surprised it was a great film, storyline was good if you like a drama, history thriller. Then it's the film for you. 

HelloCanvas Review

I've always wanted a picture from our first holiday as a family of four, blown up on a canvas. The picture is so peaceful it was a magical moment to watch the children so calm playing together on the beach.

I've hesitated having it put on to a canvas after I had an awful experience with two canvas ordered for my mom from a massive company two years ago. it gave me so much stress and upset that I just haven't had the confidence to do it.

So this is where HelloCanvas come in, I've heard vaguely of hello canvas and everything so far has been good. HelloCanvas was founded in 2004 and is the largest canvas prints website in the United Kingdom and throughout Europe! 

I knew straight away which photo wanted to be blown up on to a canvas, I sent my details and picture over and the canvas was dispatched the next day. Canvases come in an array of sizes to suit every budget. They can be printed in colour, sepia, or black and white. 

There frames are 1.2 inches deep and there canvas is made from 100% cotton. They print using the most advanced printing techniques that exist today and there inks are UV resistant therefore never fade in the sun. During their shipping process they wrap canvas prints with a protective foil and pack them in a sturdy custom cardboard shipping box. As a result, damage during transportation is reduced to a minimum. 

My canvas came packed great it was a long bigger than I expected  (size 20 x 28 inch/50 x 70 cm) and its perfect, great quality and looks gorgeous I am over the moon with it. Only bug for me was no fixtures was with it to hang it up. I think I would recommend hello canvas to everyone I see now. 

Prices start from £13 and go up to £89.

Surcare Gel Liquid Review

As you are all aware I've been using soap nuts to do my washing for over a year now.  I use soap nuts for my normal washing then use gel liquid for my bedsheets. I'm still missing the heavy fragrance of washing that the soap nuts just don't give. Lexie has pretty sensitive skin, so comes out in rashes quite a lot, so I've stuck with the soap nuts and she's been fine. 

Firstly it's the first time I've come across the Surcare range it comes with a promise not to put anything unnecessary into its products that will irritate your skin. No enzymes, no dyes, no acids. Not even perfumes.  There is no smell from the gel at all, after washing it just leaves a subtle scent of cleanness. 

The gel you just add to the top and pop in the drum of the washing. Pour and go! I love the flip top bottle, it makes it so much easier to pour and pop away while the lid is being used in the wash. 

All Surcare products have been dermatologically tested and approved, so they can stop all those stains in their tracks without compromising on your skin. What’s more, they provide outstanding cleaning at 30°C, so you can be kinder to the environment too.

I would definitely use Surcare again, as it hasn't Irritated Lexie's skin at all.  RRP of £3.99 is available from most supermarkets

IpicUk Photo Frame Review

Doing blogging makes me visit and uncover new and fantastic websites. i-pic was looking for reviewers to test out there fantastic unique photo frames. From holiday memory's birthdays, Mother's Day, Themed, vacation gifts. There is a photo frame for every occasion here at i-pic.

The website was easy to follow and pretty simple to personalise and make my own photo frame. 

You start by picking which frame you would like, I picked a button background as I thought it was eye catching.  Next you upload your photo and crop it in to the space. You can add text on the front and the back to personalise , but I decided to keep my plain. 

The whole process took my around 15 minutes to complete, that was with looking at all the fantastic frames they have to choose on the site.  Delivery was super quick I ordered on the Sunday and it was in my hands on Tuesday morning. 

The i-pic looks awesome and I think is a great keepsake of your special memories. Prices are from £14.99.
