An eclectic collection of small but important stuff

Some little things I have liked the look, feel, smell of this week...
Hello Crocs Gust boot, Hello Kitty, Hello snow, Hello snug toes.  My friend and I were complaining we would have to put our Converse into hibernation for the Winter, then we discovered ones with fur.  It seems Crocs have also solved that problem, but for kids.  As well as these fab boots, they also do kids' Crocs with fur linings.  Snug sneakers rock.
Hello Peppa Pig.  You just keep on giving.  Peppa Pig is such a reference point for pre schoolers firsts.  Mr G and his friends went ice skating 'just like Peppa and George' last week. Peppa Pig International Day, is packed with 11 new episodes, it was released on DVD by Entertainment 1 on the 24th October, RRP £12.99.  Entertainment One have kindly provided one copy to giveaway to one lucky reader, see below.

Hello fairy lights.  It's cold and dark, I won't mention the C word.  But I will have some sparkle please.  A whole net of sparkle, which I think would capture the kid's imaginations too. Christmas Trees and Lights have everything you need to light up your house, garden and the sky this Winter.  Including some big boy firework sets.

Two curly haired kids + bathtime = headache.  But I love this.  It makes hair really soft and having kids that smell of banana and custard and not fluffy nonsense is a rather lovely thing indeed.
I'm having a nostalgic soap thing.  Pears and Wrights Coal-Tar soap.  Both remind me of my grandparents, and of home.  There's no coal or tar in it any more, but it smells just like it used to.

Have a lovely weekend.  What have you discovered this week?

Peppa Pig competition ends Saturday 5th November at midday.  UK entries only.  Comment to enter. Please leave me a way to contact you.

I was going to do a similar thing as this called 'Featured', but then I got lazy and crossed it off my list. Glad to see someone else carried it through! (Love those Hello Kitty boots!)

Featured is a great title. I went for a rambly long one!

Yes, I wondered if it was a Northern thing!

Oh, the smell of that soap, takes me straight back to (not my real) Aunty's house. Being told to play quietly with my brother while the adults chatted, sneaking into the bathroom to look at the soap you can almost see through, getting told off for playing in the bathroom...

I saw Wright's soap for the 1st time yesterday next to some pears, wondered what it would be like, what a funny coincidence.

Those hello Kitty boots would be great for the winter!
We've used the Naked banana and custard shampoo, it's brilliant, and smell delicious!!

My youngest, Miss A would LOVE the peppa pig DVD, she's obsessed with it!
