Blueberry Baked Oats Slimming World Muffins.

If you follow on Instagram you will see I've gone slightly muffin crazy! I was getting bored with the same things for breakfast, so i decided to give some baked oats muffins a go. I did this recipe a few months ago and it tasted awful, it was a bigger dish and it was just all soggy. These come out spongy and very light! 

35g of oats ( HEXB) 
1 egg
2tsp sweetener
60g of blueberries 
2tsp of fat free syn free yoghurt ( I used the Greek layered strawberry one from Aldi) 
1tsp of cinnamon 
Frylight to spray the muffin cases

Mix the oats, sweetener, cinnamon together. Add the egg and yogurt. Mix well & add the blueberries.
Spray the muffin cases with Frylight. 
Add the mixture to the muffin cases and bake on gas mark 4 for 15 minutes.

Eat hot or cold, with the rest of the yogurt and some speed food. 

2 syn's for the cooked blueberries. Perfect for breakfast, lunch or a pudding.

Disney Princess Ariel Bath Styling Head

This has been one of Lexie's favourite review items this year. She is slightly obsessed with anything that is a mermaid or a unicorn. I'm a huge fan myself of The Little Mermaid & Ariel is by far our favourite Disney Princess. This item was one of the items already on Lexie's Christmas list so she was delighted when she came home from school and saw it waiting for her. 

This styling head is slightly different to a normal one, as this one is made for bath time. It has some  suction cups on the back, so you can attach it to the wall, side of the bath or even tiles. 

Ariel's statement red hair is long and shiny. Perfect for making your own styles or washing bubbles out. This comes with many fun colour changing features! With the magical power of water. Change the hair from blue to teal , eyes and lips with the magic of cold water then to change back for a different style. 

The set comes with five adorable accessories. Some lovely hair clips which double up for hair clips for you too in or out the bath. There is a cute shell cup, which is the shell like Ursula's necklace where she traps Ariels voice in the film. The brush is a dinglehopper/fork style which I thought was really cute. Plus a lovely slot in purple clip. 

The Disney Princess Ariel Bath Styling Head is from Just Play which is perfect for girls aged 4 years and over. Perfect for a princess fan or a budding hairdresser. 

RRP- £24.99

Pet Parade Family Mum and Baby from Flair.

Lexie loves anything that is animal related or any type of figures, anything cute always gets her vote. We had an exciting parcel turn up with the new Pet Parade Family pack from Flair. In the family pack there is a 1 Mum, 1 baby animal, 1 lead, 1 customisable collar & 1 dummy. They are available in Dog or Cat different options and breeds. 

The Pet Parade families walk with the lead and have very realistic movements. No batteries, mean lots of endless play. The joystick button on their back makes the animals walk in the direction their owner chooses and allows you to move the head eyes and tail. The magnetic feature at the end of the tail joins the two dogs together, so they follow each other around. The baby has a cute little dummy accessory too. 

Each pet has a name tag that you can name and draw on your own pets names. 

These are ideal for girls aged between 4 and 8 years old and retail at £9.99.

Lexie's Weekend Style

Trendy Tot Thursday and Weekend Mini Style with Sarah at This Mama Life have joined forces to bring Weekend Tot Style! 

I've been awful remembering this linky lately and it was one of my favourites. A clothes shop is on my to do list for Lexie, so I will have no excuse then.

Lexie has been invited to two parties this weekend. This was outfit number one. This dress is getting slightly on the tight side now so it won't fit her for much longer, I'm really gutted as this was one of The Vintage Sweetheart dresses I got in their sale. The dresses are stunning and such good quality. I'm definitely gonna have to order some more in the next size up.

Her cardigan is from TU at Sainsbury's & gem studded shoes are from Next.

IDO3D Vertical Design Studio From Flair

We had the chance to review the IDO3D Vertical Design Studio From Flair. I'm finding it very hard to get Raiden off his tablet to do anything lately, he seems to want to shy away and hide in his own little bubble. He is so creative himself but just needs that boost at times to get him motivated. 

So in the pack you get some 3D templates, which are great for getting the pieces you want very accurate. 

With the four coloured glue pens you can start to creative your 3D designs.

Draw, set and connect using the vertical spotlight included, which dries the creations before you glue the pieces together. You can even draw in the air! 

Check out the IDO3D_UK gallery creations on Instagram. The instructions are easy to follow and it takes a bit of practice with the pens to start doing your designs. Raiden has really enjoyed following and making the designs. He has enjoyed practicing with them and has so far made a few designs. This would make a great present for a crafty boy or girl this Christmas. I expect it to be on quite a few Christmas lists this year. 

RRP - £24.99.

Slimming World Pasta Quiche - Syn Free

One of my favourite things on slimming world is the pasta quiche. It's so filling and it tastes amazing. I'm not usually a great fan of cottage cheese, but this is actually the key part in the quiche, gives a lovely light texture.


Three medium eggs - Free 
Batchelors Pasta n Sauce Chicken & Mushroom, dried (110g pack) - Free
Cottage Cheese with Onion & Chives, Fat Free - Free 
Spring onion diced 

You can add anything in to the mixture, to bulk it out too. 

Make up the pasta and sauce with just water, I added slightly more than it says on the pack as it drys out quick. Once soft add this too a quiche dish. 

Mix the eggs and cottage cheese together, add the onions, peppers & mix well. Add the mixture on top of the pasta and sauce dish, add some extra peppers and tomatoes on the top. 

Bake on 140 for around 45 minutes, unless the top is golden brown and not squishy. 

Serve with lots of speed food. It's syn free and delicious!

Got to admit I'm so excited to see the new Trolls film from Dreamworks which is coming out this October. I was a huge fan of trolls and had hundreds all different sizes, I really wish I had kept them, all now for Le is to play with as I'm sure after she see's the new film she will be hooked too.  To celebrate the release of the new Trolls movie, Just Play is launching a range of hair play & dress up toys based on the new film. 

We was delighted to be sent the new Trolls Poppy styling head to review, Included with the styling head is hair clips, hairbrush, a headband and some clips with multicolored hair. 

Just Play’s hair play collection will ensure that lots of laughs ensue as children create wild and wacky hairstyles for Poppy, themselves, and their friends. Lexie loved to create ultimate wacky hairstyles with poppy. The main feature of the Trolls are their bold hair and its fantastic they have been made up to date with some new characters from the film. 

We loved the flower headband on Poppy and it was easy to attach the different clips. 

The base of the head doubles up as storage for the clips and hairbrush, to keep them all together.
