When we were chosen to take part in the Pampers Active Fit Nappy challenge for #BritainsDriestNappy both myself and Amelia were very happy as we are huge Pampers fans.
To be honest we have tried all different kinds with all the kids and Pampers are the only ones that seem to work really well in all circumstances!
We went into this with an open mind though and purchased a pack of Tesco own make nappies also to try out the challenge with a cheap pack v a more expensive pack to see if it really is worth spending the extra.
Both nappies were placed side by side and 150mls of water poured into each, which is around 2 or 3 pees worth (probably the amount that would be needed before you notice a nappy change is needed)
Once all of the water was poured we set the egg timer for 1min 30seconds and waited for the exciting bit!
When the timer pinged it was time to place a piece of kitchen paper on the nappy surface to see if there was any leakage....just enough pressure to simulate a child sitting in the nappy and look what happened!
The Tesco nappy was still very wet....but the Pampers nappy however was bone dry and I mean BONE dry!!
I cut open the nappy to look inside and see what little miracle holds the water away from babyskin - these fabulous little micro pearls absorb all the liquid and form a gel!
Yep - I can confirm I am still a lifelong Pampers fan and will most definitely be adding the active fit nappies to the shopping list (we currently use Pampers Baby Dry)!
Hope you liked this little demonstration - i know we did *and i never enjoyed science at school*! lol
Supplied in a cute keepsake tin with greeting card, balloons and candles this little cake has everything you need for a treat in a box.
The cake can be printed with anything you like, any picture, any message or if you are low on inspiration you can choose from a gallery of ideas!
The outer is a delicious light fondant and the sponge is light and airy, you can choose from Vanilla or Chocolate or Fruit. We received the vanilla cake and it was delicious, not at all dry. Thin enough to be a one layer cake yet just enough to not need anything else.
We cut it into 6 pieces and each piece was a decent size portion.
I would highly recommend Baker Days for that special celebration....or even just a treat for tea!
We were recently sent some goodies from Persil to make our own jam.
We still have a mass of apple and blackberry jam from my mum so we decided to make lemoncurd instead. This is one of the easiest and tastiest things to make!
All you need is
2 egg yolks
zest & juice of 4 lemons
pinch of salt
Add the butter, sugar, salt, zest and juice together in a bowl over a pan of hot water (do not let it boil) and stir continually until the butter is melted (cut it into small blocks which will melt faster)
In a seperate bowl, use a fork and combine the eggs and yolks. Pour into the bowl over the pan and stir regularly to stop the egg from scrambling.
Keep over the low heat, stiring regularly for approx 10 minutes or until the lemon curd starts to coat the back of a spoon.
Sieve into jars and leave to cool completely before topping with a circle of greaseproof paper.
They will keep for 7 days in the fridge.
Given the fact i have 3 little ones who like to get messy in the kitchen we knew that these Dual Action capsules were going to be put to the test! I was dubious i must admit, I love Persil as it is and didnt think anything was better than the Persil tablets.....boy was i wrong!
The scent and the power that these little gems pack are second to none! No need for fabric softener or additional expensive stain removers.
