Fornessi Carry Me Wrap Review

In Reviews by eva.katona@yahoo.com1 Comment

I use baby carriers with Babi a lot, sometimes even at home to calm her down (teething…) or help her to take a nap. It also played an important role in establishing breast feeding in the first few weeks. It’s good to keep more than one, just in case, or for different tasks. I have never tried less constructed baby …

Vegan And Raw Mini Energy Bars

In Foodie Me, Reviews by eva.katona@yahoo.com6 Comments

We all know, just how bad refined sugar is for us. If you ever tried to cut down on your sugar intake, you know how hard it can be. Low-sugar and “sugar-free” substitutes are not healthy either (and they taste terrible). Dried fruits are great to satisfy your sugar craving. They are full of fibre, and antioxidants (especially figs and …

My 5 Best Buys For My Second Baby

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

It’s probably quite a cliche, but also quite true: the second time you’re more relaxed and more experienced. You know what to expect. Until you realise, that your second child is completely different, even as a baby. There are some things, of course, which you try to do differently anyway, having learnt your lessons already. Like not buying all available …

Sweet, Spicy Roasted Christmas Snacking Nuts

In Foodie Me, Reviews by eva.katona@yahoo.comLeave a Comment

I have to confess: I am addicted to this fantastic winter snack. When making them at home, the divine smell will turn your house into a German-style Christmas market. So why not make some mulled wine too? They could also make lovely, handmade gifts, if you fill small cellophane bags or glass jars with them. If you think the measurements …

Review: Humble Stuff Eco Cleaning Products

In Green & Ethical Living, Reviews by eva.katona@yahoo.com1 Comment

With Marie, the creative mind behind Humble Stuff we share the same ideas about being green. We even jokingly agreed on rather receiving eco-friendly cleaning products for Christmas than yet another jumper from Marks and Spencer. I’m always on the look out for natural everyday products without harsh chemicals and without giving up on performance. Not just for our planet, but …

Review: Nim’s All Natural Vegetable And Fruit Crisps

In Foodie Me, Reviews by eva.katona@yahoo.com1 Comment

I’m always on the look out for healthy and vegetarian nibbles. Bobcat is a very picky eater, he currently doesn’t eat any fresh fruits or vegetables apart from a little banana and some tomato. No matter how creative and persistent I am, he just won’t eat them. Therefore, I’m keen to try new things just to make him eat some …

Family Dayout Series: Drusillas Park East Sussex Review

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

Drusillas Park is located in East Sussex, short drive from the lovely coast. Our first time visit left me with ambivalent feelings. Some parts of it are really nice, but others are just run-down or just random. It has no apparent concept either: bit of a mix of everything, but not too original or exciting. The park tries really hard though: …

Luckily, with the help of great innovations it’s getting easier lately. Foodji is a new Iphone App that allows the user to track food best before date, choose to …

Review: Eden’s Semilla Aromatherapy Essential Oils

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

Lucky lucky me! My friends at Eden’s Semilla sent me some wonderful new stuff to review. Knowing some of their products already, I was really excited. I’m actually a real sucker for aromatherapy oils. (Because my mum used them when I was a child, so for example the smell of orange flower oil makes me feel home.)  I use them a lot …

Hotel Review: Meon Valley Marriott Hotel And Country Club

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

We picked Meon Valley Marriott Hotel And Country Club for five nights in August as a mini-holiday near home. As we checked the reviews on Tripadvisor it was clear that many families chose the hotel for being “children friendly“. We thought, the rooms are big, there’s golf for daddy and beauty treatments for mummy, small children can use the swimming pool, so …
