United Nude Fold Mid

If you are a lover of the low ankle boot this pair from United Nude might be the perfect pair to see you through the winter season. Just check out that textured look on them, I can see a lot of people loving these this year.

This pair of black leather shoes, offer something different to the norm. Offering three straps, rather than the normal 1, you might just find a few people asking you questions about your choice of footwear when you wear these.

Meline Ninia

For those who like a bit of sparkle, these trainers from Meline offer something very different. With the silver star and glittered sides they are bound to catch the light, as you dance the night away. No matter if you are at home with friends or hitting the town.

Airstep Saint

Last but by no means least is this pair of boots and aren’t they wonderful. I can just imagine them being perfect for treading the streets, searching for Christmas presents or getting to check out the local Christmas market.

Win The Very Merry Christmas Game

Welcome to day 4 of mine and Life in a Break Down advent giveaway! How’s your December going, I hope you all have had some good wins?!

Today we are looking to have your Christmas Day fun sorted by giving away a copy of the fantastic Christmas board game – The Very Merry Christmas Game. Aimed at ages 10+ this game is the perfect Christmas game for the family and suitable for multiple players, each game includes 42 x Cracker cards, 32 x Present cards, 4 x playing pieces, 2 x dice, game board, party hat and rules.

So what is it all about?
Filled with all the Christmas spirit you will need, you’ll find presents, crackers, festive songs and even sprouts(?!) hidden within this game.
Gather the family together, as it’s time to see who can gather the best presents for their stocking, some will be nice and some will be naff. However, you may not find out what the others are holding until the very end of the game. But beware as the cracker cards sometimes let you steal a present from someone else’s stocking and you may just have to sing a festive song to stop someone snatching from yours. While those sprout cards may just have a bad effect. What more could you want from a game this festive season?

The Very Merry Christmas Game can be bought from Debenhams or Amazon {affiliate link} where it has an RRP of £30 (however both are selling it cheaper at the time of writing).

Of course, I mentioned we are giving away a game for free and all you need to do to be in with a chance of winning yourself a copy of The Very Merry Christmas Game is let us know:
What is your favourite Christmas Day activity?

Win a Britax Trifix iSize Car Seat Worth £250

I am running this giveaway as part of my Britax Mumbassador ambassadorship. I have not been compensated for this post.

I’ve been a Britax mumbassador this year and had plenty of news to tell you about their new products. They kindly sent me their first stage car seat when I was in the late stages of pregnancy with Olivia and we still use this every day. I recently reviewed the Britax Holiday stroller and now the time has come for you to receive one of their items to try. Britax have kindly offered one of their Trifix iSize car seats worth £250 for a competition – how fab?

Britax Trifix iSize car seat

Here’s a little more about the car seat itself:

Made in Germany and designed with Britax Römer’s renowned crash testing capabilities, it is based on the award-winning TRIFIX2 platform. This seat that conforms to the ECE R129/01 car seat regulation (i-Size) is suitable for children from 76 cm to 105 cm tall (15 months up to approx. four years), making it the perfect follow up to the popular BABY-SAFE i-SIZE infant carrier.

It is safe and east to install every single time. It is approved for all cars with dedicated i-Size seating positions as well as cars with ISOFIX and Top Tether anchorage points. The car seat does not require an additional base for the unique installation that reinforces the stability of the seat, whilst allowing for more space in the foot-well of the car. Integrated ISOFIX connectors have also been designed specifically for the TRIFIX2 i-SIZE to provide complete and unrivalled protection for little ones, allowing for both safe and easy installation.

It offers all round protection, ensuring children are optimally protected thanks to the large, deeply padded side wings and Britax Römer’s SICT inside technology, which absorbs energy and keeps children away from the impact of the crash. Additionally, the special V-shaped form of the headrest is designed to control the movement of the child’s head in an impact. In the event of a frontal collision, Britax Römer’s patented ISOFIX with Pivot Link system directs the force downwards into the vehicle seat, thereby reducing the risk of head and neck injury, while the Top Tether with rip stitch technology helps reduce the forward movement of the child in the case of a crash. The Top Tether’s unique stitch pattern has been designed to progressively rip in a controlled fashion, absorbing the force of the frontal impact during a collision.

These features, along with the 5-point harness with soft neoprene performance chest pads (which can be easily removed for washing), help to protect children from an impact of any direction. The unique range of safety features allows parents to travel with peace of mind knowing that their precious cargo is well looked after.

It is super comfortable. The advanced ergonomics of a good seating position and superb padding offer a stress-free journey. The three recline options can be adjusted easily with one hand without waking up a sleeping child. The headrest provides seven height positions to ensure that the seat will grow with the child.”. The majority of Britax car seats – including the TRIFIX2 i-SIZE, which is made in Germany – and all of their car seat fabrics and covers are made in Europe.  Britax Römer has strong internal standards for chemical and mechanical testing for fabrics and other components. The TRIFIX2 i-SIZE is available from July 2017 onwards for £250 and is available in Cosmos Black, Flame Red, Storm Grey, Olive Green and Moonlight Blue, with additional colours to follow. For more information, please go to www.britax.co.uk.
