Read With Oxford – Books To Help Children Learn To Read (Review)

In Reviews by eva.katona@yahoo.com6 Comments

Reading and ASD My son loves his books. He memorised many of his favourite stories. Children on the spectrum are quite often hyperlexic and develop a particular interest in books, pictures and words. I think the reason for this is the predictability of the letters and the written words. They always mean the same thing. No reading into people’s tones …

Children’s Book Review: The Wiggle Woshers And Their Stolen Hearts

In Reviews by eva.katona@yahoo.comLeave a Comment

Bobcat absolutely loves books, from early age – oddly this is totally different with our younger, neurotypical daugther – and has memorised lots of books. He is a hard nut when it comes to introducing a new book, as many young children with or without spectrum disorder, he currently prefers to read the same books over and over again. That’s …

Vision Direct Hay Fever Box Review

In Reviews by eva.katona@yahoo.comLeave a Comment

Developing hay fever A few years back, I have developed hay fever. Not sure why in my thirties, but there you go, springtime is hay fever season for me too. Not too bad, but nevertheless very annoying. Often unexpectedly, it would start with a series of sneezes which can go on for a few minutes straight. One after the other. …

How To Throw A Llama Themed Birthday Party

In Life, Reviews by eva.katona@yahoo.com11 Comments

All birthdays are special and the second birthday of the little ones is the one where the baby stage ends. They are now real toddlers with being able to fully express what they think, what they like or… what they don’t like for that matter. I have a very strong willed little girl on my hands. Lucky me, I know. …

Review: Awebox – The Fully Customisable Subscription Box

In Reviews by eva.katona@yahoo.com10 Comments

I do like subscription boxes, because I can try products which are normally not on the supermarket shelves and they are produced by small and independent businesses. Well, that’s the idea I like about them, but of course not all subscription services provide this. Also, I’m always after new, ethically produced, cruelty free and healthy products. Some subscription services do …

As you already know I’m a huge fan of natural skin care and essential oils. My holistic approach is: the same way I nourish my body with non-processed and meat free food I treat my skin with natural and organic beauty products which are also cruelty free. I try to avoid artificial ingredients and chemicals both in my diet and my beauty products. I’m not going over …

Olverum Bath Oil Review

In Reviews by eva.katona@yahoo.com10 Comments

Well, this was a looooong winter in London. With the Beast from the East just a few weeks ago the children contracted yet another cold, then some days later it was husband’s turn and currently it’s mine. I can safely say I have had more colds and flus in the last 3-4 years (since I have children, basically) then during …

Problematic skin All my life I battled with some sort of a skin problem. I always have had spots on my face, even into adulthood.
