My Monthly Favourites: January & Competition Time!

Hello and welcome to my very first monthly favourites of 2016! If you don't already know each month I do a round up of some of the best things we have been sent to review. This January we have been lucky enough to take the whole family out for food and choose some goodies from some lovely online stores. So read on for what we got up to and make sure you enter the brilliant Souzu competition at the bottom...


Sheldon Hall: Family Carvery
We took all four generations of our family out when we visited Sheldon Hall, part of Crown Carveries, at the start of the month. With a £50 voucher we managed to feed five adults and two kids. That included drinks and the odd cheeky pudding.


Whilst I wouldn't say this is somewhere to visit if it was a special occasion. It is great if you are looking for a nice reasonably priced carvery on a Saturday afternoon. My Mum loved the beef and the kids couldn't get enough of the unlimited ice cream! Why not go and visit one of the Crown Carveries near you.

Character: Kids Clothes Featuring Their Favourite Characters
Since mine could focus on the television they have been obsessed with characters. From Peppa Pig to Olaf. From Rapunzel to Ben and Holly. You name it they love it. Character is a site that sells a variety of items featuring your kids favourite characters. You can get everything from bags to onesies. From lunch boxes to slippers.


My two chose some lovely pyjamas with their favourite Disney Rapunzel and Iron Man. And we also got a couple of T-Shirts. My son is OBSESSED with Star Wars (despite never seeing it?!) so loved his brand new top. Perfect if you are looking for gifts or if you are trying to search for a character you can't find in the shops Character has everything you could possibly want (and some cracking mens stuff I know my husband would adore).

Combimate: Limescale PreventionOne of the really exciting things about being a grown up is worrying about things like limescale. OK you're right. It's not in any way shape or form exciting. This month I was introduced to Combimate. Plumbed directly onto the cold water or applience to prevent the hot water system, Combimate uses clever magic (OK not magic but something that sounds magical) Combiphos to coat your pipework, boiler etc which means there is not a build up of limescale.

It also extends the life of your water system and saves you money by helping to keep energy costs down. If you want to find out more about helping to stop any limescale issues in your home then go and visit Combimate. 


Souzu: Unique Children's Clothing Toys Accessories Furniture And Gifts
This month sees me being introduced to yet another amazing online kids store. Souzu is aimed at children from 0-8 and prides itself on sourcing high quality gifts from well known and talented designers. There is currently a fab sale on the site and I was lucky enough to get my hands on some greats pieces for my pair. I picked a Hatley Moose Blue Reversible Gillet for my son and some Didricksons snow pants for my girl (I live in permanent fear it's going to snow at any time). Both had money off so I was super happy!


I also had a look at the toys online, which are fantastic for gifts such as birthdays, christenings and other occasions. I chose a lovely Melissa and Doug shape sorting clock which arrived at just the right time as my five year daughter is obsessed with the time. What I loved about the site was that there was a great selection of brands you have already heard of so you know they are going to be great quality. To see what clothes are in the sale go and visit Souzu and if you fancy buying a few little treats why not try your luck in this ace competition? Enter the Rafflecopter below to be in the chance to win £50 to spend on what you like! The winner will be drawn in two weeks. Good Luck! a Rafflecopter giveaway
