Getting Discounted Bath & Body Works Products

In collaboration

When it comes to shopping, we are always looking for a great deal. I don’t know about you but I keep my ear to the ground to know of the best deals around so I can stock up on said item if required.

With a son whose birthday is exactly three weeks before Christmas and a daughter whose birthday is exactly two weeks after, deals are of utmost importance to me. I need to make the most of my money, make that money stretch a little bit further.

But how can I get such good deals? Simply by looking for discount codes for the item I am looking to buy. Any seasoned shopper who knows their worth will always look for a discount code or coupon before they commit to buying and I am no different.

We’ve been looking for some decent bath products for Christmas recently and have been considering Bath and Body Works because, of course, they are incredible. Now their prices are pretty reasonable as it is but who would say no to a little bit more money knocked off the price? I’d usually head to Google to look for discount codes but I know of some gems where you can find a whole selection of codes for just one supplier – you just need to know where to look.

Bath & Body Works discount codes are out there if you know where to find them. A great place to find such codes for the company (and plenty of other companies) is Dealspotr. By simply searching the company name on the website, a whole host of codes are brought up and I can opt for the one that suits my needs most.

As you can see, I can get up to 25% off and free shipping via Amazon – there’s a few different discounts to choose from if I choose to opt for that – but this is a 3rd party deal. I can also get 25% or even 75% off my purchases- great if you are making a few!

I can filter for single use codes, codes that give me free shipping or even just to see what sales they have on. I can even see which deals have been validated, giving me confidence in using them when making a purchase. Once I’ve chosen the code I want to use, I just need to click once and it will copy to my clipboard and I can use it on the site.

Bearing this in mind, I think I may have found my perfect site for finding discount codes – I’ll definitely be heading to Dealspotr first from now on.

There are plenty of other ways to save money when ordering from Bath & Body Works – they are always doing flash deals on their site – like the $10 off $30 orders that you can see above – and even offer the whole range of certain products for a discounted price every now and again – when I looked, the whole range of body creams were discounted to just $5 to $13.50 – a great saving!

Not only that but if you set up an account, you have the potential to be sent mailer coupons – you can either print these out to use in store, use the codes online or they may even send you some through the post. Setting up an account on their site rather than checking out as a guest is definitely a great option if you’re looking to save as much as possible on your purchases!

If you’re looking to get some savings on your Bath & Body Works buys, I totally recommend checking out their site for flash deals and signing up to their newsletter for news on all their latest offers and the occasional discount code! But if you can’t find something on their site, fear not Dealspotr will definitely be there to help you!

Back To School Labelling With Korbond

Kit sent for purpose of review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

When it comes to your children going back to school, there is so much you have to think about. Making sure all their uniform and P.E kit is ready, that their bag is packed correctly, that you’ve got the right size shoes. Something that I always leave to the last minute is labelling and I know that is awful. We are usually about two weeks in before I remember to label anything but luckily I have a headstart this year, thanks to this Korbond Back To School Labelling Kit.

Korbond is a family owned and operated business in which still hold family values at their core. Their mission is to be the most professional and highly regarded non-food supplier to their customers. Available to buy in Tesco’s, Sainsbury’s and other leading UK retailers, they are one of the most established haberdashery brands out there. The kit they sent me included some iron on labels, some stick on labels, some shoe labels (great if your child struggles with their left and right), some hemming web and a bag tag that they can hook onto their book bag or rucksack.

We are heading out this week to grab some school uniform bits – the plain polo shirts and trousers as we’ve kindly been given some of the school branded stuff from our friend whose son is the year above. We’re all set for labels now as you can see from the variety we’ve got below.

With the amount of stuff Jack has to take in (uniform, shoes, wellies, P.E kit, all-in-one, book bag, water bottle etc), we often need a variety of different labels and Korbond really do provide you with a variety to choose from. We’re definitely going to be picking up some more Korbond labels as these are great quality and do the job perfectly. They are durable and much more affordable than many of the other labelling brands out there – plus you know you get good quality when it bears the Korbond name.

For 24 woven name labels, 6 pairs of long lasting shoe labels and 15 dishwasher safe lunchbox and water bottle labels, you will pay just £3.99 – a price that probably can’t be beaten! The bag tags are just £3 for 2 and you can also get a set of 24 iron labels with a fine point marker pen for just £2.69 – they really do offer great variety. I was sent a few of each in my kit to give them a try and I’m definitely impressed.

Some quick labelling tips

  • Do it all in one go. Labelling clothes can be a little repetitive but it is easier to get it all done in one go than say you will do the rest later and forgetting to do it.
  • Use a fine point marker pen – other pens easily rub off or wash out.
  • Label everything. Even if you don’t think it needs a label, it probably does. Even down to their hats and winter coats – you don’t want to lose them.
  • Use stick ons for items like water bottles, lunchboxes and iron ons for clothes. No matter how well a stuck on label is stuck to a label on their jumper or in their shoes, it will come off incredibly easy and could lead to your child’s item getting lost.

Labelling is so important when it comes to going back to school. Do you have any tips?

Review | Isla Fisher’s Children’s Books

We were sent the books for the purpose of review. All thoughts and opinions are our own.

Isla Fisher has been one of my favourite actresses for as long as I can remember. Not only did I love her in Home and Away but she also stars in the film adaptation (Confessions of A Shopaholic) of one of my favourite series of books and she also stars in the incredible first Now You See Me film – seriously….if you haven’t seen it, go watch it! I also remember owning both of her 90’s novels, Bewitched and Seduced By Fame when I was younger so you could definitely say I was a huge fan!

When I was contacted asking if Jack would like to review her children’s book series, I think I was probably most excited. Jack is a little bookworm and is starting to branch out into slightly longer books so these seemed perfect to keep his love of reading alive.

 

Isla has so far released three children’s books – all in the same series. These are Marge In ChargeMarge and the Pirate Baby and Marge and the Great Train Rescue – you can order them from Amazon here {affiliate link}. The series is about an unruly babysitter and each book is divided into three stories.  Isla said she wrote the books for her kids “just to have a laugh with them”.

So what did we think?

David Baddiel describes the series as ‘Charming, funny and delightful‘ and I would have to agree. From the very first page of the very first book, Jack was hooked. The characters are described so well and he gasped when Marge took her hat off to reveal her long multi-coloured hair. I think every child dreams of an unruly babysitter who lets them do what they want that their parents would never let them do and Marge certainly is mischievous!

The illustrations really help the books come to life too. These are well drawn and really convey what the text says. With each book containing three stories, they are long enough to keep the child entertained but short enough not for them to get tired. A story a night is perfect!

Jack loves the character of Marge – he thinks she is incredibly funny and yes, he would like a babysitter like her! He thinks he is more like Jemima than Jakeypants but thinks the character of Jake is very funny too. When I asked for his thoughts on the series, he said ‘Good….No, BRILLIANT!‘ and I can tell he is a big fan already. Here’s hoping there is more in the series as Isla Fisher has created some fantastic characters who we can’t to read more about – even Olivia has been enjoying listening to us reading the stories!

We are definitely impressed with these books and these make a great addition to Jack’s bookshelves. What have you or your children been reading recently?

L.O.L Surprise Series 2 | What Did We Get?

Item sent for the purpose of review. All thoughts and opinions are our own,

You may remember our post regarding our L.O.L Surprise Easter hunt so when we were asked if we would like to review a surprise from Series 2, I was always going to say yes. Jack constantly asks for them when seeing them in the supermarket – and I think that’s great. It is so good that children aren’t falling for the gender stereotyping adults push onto them when it comes to toys and I am more than happy for him to play with what are considered mostly as ‘girl’s toys’.

The first L.O.L collection proved very popular with consumers   you get seven layers of fun with every L.O.L. Surprise doll! Inside there is a secret message sticker, a collectible sticker sheet, a water bottle charm, a pair of shoes, an outfit, an accessory and a L.O.L. Surprise! doll with water surprise. Series 2 has just been released so what did we receive?

There are over 45 dolls to collect in series 2 – and you never know what one you are going to get. Priced at £9.99, you really do get a surprise.

So who did we get?

Of course when it comes to a collection, you are always wishing and hoping for the rare ones but you are very lucky if you do get them. We weren’t lucky enough to get one on this occasion but we did receive number 2-012 called Kicks – we guess she is a footballer!

The surprise dolls are categorised with their number and have a symbol which shows them as popular, fancy, rare, ultra-rare and on my way (the ones that haven’t quite arrived yet!). Kicks is popular so I expect there to be more of her and a few of the others than Splash Queen (which of course Jack wants!).

Jack was very happy with his L.O.L Surprise doll and of course is wanting to buy the whole collection once again. The dolls are perfect for ages 6 and over and will be a great stocking filler come Christmas time as whoever you are buying for will be totally surprised and won’t know what they are getting – and who doesn’t love a surprise?

We’ll definitely be picking up some more of series 2. Have you started collecting them yet?

A Unique Gift From Twenty Fingers

Described as ‘a cut above gifts’, Twenty Fingers is a family run business based in Milton Keynes. Owned by a husband and wife duo with a passion for design and photography, they have a million ideas that are used to create their unique home décor gifts and quirky artwork. All the products are handmade by them in the UK. Natural materials such as paper, wood, glass and metal are used in the production of their gifts.

Offering a personalised service, you can choose from a variety of gifts for the person you are buying for. Whether you want artwork or home accessories, you are sure to find it and receive a gift with a unique and bespoke finish.

I’ve been looking for a gift for my mum from Jack and Olivia that is something that she will want to keep forever – something that isn’t just a use once item. When we were offered the chance to review something from the Twenty Fingers website ourselves, it didn’t take us long to choose what we wanted. Between Jack and I, we chose a bespoke children’s photo papercut. Priced at £69 for the standard size or £89 for the larger size, you are even able to choose the colour of your frame and the colour of the artwork. Now I have a lot of photos of Jack and Olivia together but we decided to choose the one above.

We were kept informed of the creation process throughout and were shown what it would like before we agreed to anything. Once we were happy, it was sent out to us and arrived very safely and quickly.

The attention to detail is incredible. You can really see that the papercut is of Jack and Olivia. People who make papercuts are highly skilled so I tip my hat to them – it really is incredible just how much detail they can add in. As you can see we chose the wooden frame with a white/cream artwork and I think it works really well.

The font used is lovely too – it really is a lovely gift and we couldn’t wait to give it to my Mum. She was coming round to ours anyway so we told her that we had a surprise for her and gave it to her once she arrived. She was so happy with it – it’s something a bit different from the usual mugs or photos she receives – and it is something she can cherish as a joint present from them forever.

If you are looking for the perfect unique and personalised gift, I would suggest heading over to Twenty Fingers – you’re bound to find something you will love!
