A Year and a Splash!

Posted by on March 1, 2013 in Uncategorized | 228 comments

On the 21st of March it will be exactly a year since I started blogging. What started on a whim has become a big part of my life now. I have discovered lots of incredible blogs to read, and made some amazing friends. I have had some great opportunities come my way, and have contributed to the awareness of some important causes and charities. To celebrate my first blogiversary I am running a couple little comps this month. The Mothers Day giveaway has a few days left so enter that one while you still can!

Β One of the things that came as a surprise to me in blogging is that companies want to work with you, even if you are slapdash and waffle unprofessionally like me! Some of them offer you cash for posting about things like banking, and I have chosen not to pursue those at present, as my blog is currently just my hobby and I like to keep it fun. But I have taken advantage of offers to review things that I think will bring my kids a smile!

Nuby bay and toddler range
Syd exploring the Nuby range!

One of the loveliest companies I have worked with is Nuby. Not only are their products fab, but their online presence is a great example to other companies. Their facebook page is full of interaction , advice from one parent to the other, funny pictures, links to interesting blog articles- about their products and otherwise, and of course information about their goods and special offers. From my perspective they are always a delight to speak to, and as one of their team of bloggers we have benefited from the use of their really rather fabulous range of beakers, tableware and toys. You can find my reviews under the tab at the top.

Recently I wrote about their colourful and fantastic bath toys, which Syd Β is still getting a whole lot of use out of, and they have kindly offered a bath bundle prize to one of you lot in celebration of my blogiversary!

The prize is worth Β£35 and the lucky winner will receive :-

Shampoo Rinse Cup
Bath Letters and Numbers
Bath Time Net
Octopus Floating Bath Toy
Tub Time Turtle
Squid the Squirter
Splish Splash Stacking Cups

You can have a look at them all here on the Nuby website. As with all their products, the bath range is brightly coloured and lots of fun!

To enter please complete the rafflecopter form below, make sure you complete the mandatory step to validate your entry, them complete as many or few of the rest as you like for bonus entries!

a Rafflecopter giveaway


  • one rafflecopter form per household
  • open to UK entries only
  • over 18s only
  • Entry closes at midnight on the 31st March
  • I will contact the winner shortly after to obtain their details so that Nuby may send them their prize.

Good Luck All,
Love Miss Cisco XXX

  56. The octopus is awesome!! they are all pretty fab looking though!

    My only quarm with bath toys is that some of them are hard to empty and over time we have had fab expensive toys fill with mold inside meaning we had to chuck them away, even if we have soaked them in dettol. :( This is why I preferred to go for foam type toys rather than squirty ones but even they need cleaning properly. I bought a net too to keep them in, which I also soak in dettol. Thats the thing with bath toys, they tend to get wet.. alot πŸ˜‰

    Great giveaway, <3 xx
