Travelling with kids – win a Trunki!

Travelling with kids is fantastic as long as you’re organised! Far better to have sticker books and games to hand than have nothing to distract them with on long journeys or waits at the airport.

We’ve a fabulous Limited Edition London Bus Trunki suitcase to giveaway in conjunction with the At Home Parenting magazine!

My youngest just loves her Trunki – having her own case to pack (which fits in a huge amount of stuff for the size as it stows in most air-craft hand-luggage compartments) and of course wheeling around or being towed on it.

Boris Bus carry on

 

Carry on bag – make sure each of your children has their own carry on bag whether you’re travelling by car, train, boat or plane. That way they will take ownership over what they will play with. Think longer term rather than just the journey. Two of my children once decided to pack a selection of playmobil pieces (which I was sure they’d lose!) and they played beautifully all week with them.

Sticker books and pens – are a winner every time on journeys from toddler to almost teens who will love to help younger siblings. A good selection of sticker books, pads and colouring pens can buy you hours of amusement (and peace and quiet…)

Electronics – can be great to while away time waiting for flights, buses or ferries but beware of using them in the car as they can cause travel sickness. Obviously, you’ll need to limit the time your children use them but they can be a godsend for watching movies or playing games when there’s nothing to do but wait. Don’t forget to take chargers and adapters.

Tennis ball, Frisbee – if you’re travelling by car then stick in a tennis ball, football or Frisbee to have a throw around with the kids when you stop for a break.

Drinks & snacks – it goes without saying that you’ll need plenty of snacks and water to see you through a long journey – for you and the kids…

Medicine bag – it’s always worth having a small stash of medicinal essential such as plasters, calpol, travel sickness remedies and sun cream etc to see you through the trip.

And don’t forget to use My Nametags stickers on everything from backpacks and suitcases to special toys, cameras, iPads and nintendos.

To win a Limited Edition London Bus Trunki all you have to do is follow this link and answer the tricky question on the At Home website!!

The Pear ShapeImage of Seafolly Goddess Soft Cup Halter Maillot

The Seafolly Goddess Seychelles Soft Cup Halter Maillot is ideal for the classic ‘Pear Shape’ as the pleated halter and tie detail on the bust enhance your top half whilst the ruching is very forgiving round the tummy and hips. This Seafolly swimsuit is one of Coco Bay’s best sellers. It is made from the luxurious Seafolly Goddess fabric which feels amazing on and gives excellent shape and support with its removable booster pads, soft cups and side boning. Our favourite thing about this swimsuit is the ruching on the front and side panels which works magic on the not so flat stomachs!

Disguising TummiesImage of Seafolly Twist Bandeau Maillot

Another of Coco Bay’s best sellers, the twisted pleating round the bust combined with the front and side panelling on the Seafolly Goddess Twist Bandeau Maillot swimsuit creates an hour glass silhouette.  This flattering swimsuit definitely came to my rescue after having had a baby and I was in need of some soft disguise round the tum. Available in 4 different colours but pictured here in a smart Indigo, this swimsuit will work up to a DD cup and offers excellent shape and support.

The Shorter BodyImage of Banana Moon Swamis Dreamy Halter Maillot

This Banana Moon Swamis Dreamy Halter Swimsuit is perfect for shorter bodies as the low neck and back elongate the body. If you are looking for an elegant deep plunge swimsuit, we think this dark chocolate swimsuit from swimwear designer Banana Moon is a stunner. Browns are making a serious come-back this season which is good news for swimwear as it is so much more flattering to skin colouring than black. The ornamental hammered silver disc on the front really finishes the look perfectly.

Smaller Busts

This Seafolly Miami Maillot in gorgeous neon really flatters those with smaller cupsizes as the over-layed twist enhances the bust. It’s always challenging to find a strapless swimsuit that holds you up and this Seafolly swimsuit does just that! We don’t recommend for DD+ but it is ideal for A to C cups as it gives lift and support and no strap marks!

 

 

Larger Busts

Another pick from down under but this time from Ozzy swimwear designer, Baku. This D/DD swimsuit is a big seller for those with larger busts as it offers excellent support. The contrasting white detailing down the side has the effect of making your silhouette much slimmer and that surely has to be a good thing. The detachable straps also mean that this can be strapless so no ugly strap lines.

Athletic Figures

Image of Seafolly Prismatic Maillot

This Seafolly Prismatic Maillot is ideal for those with athletic or boyish figures as the busy print can give the illusion of more curves. Not for the faint hearted but this Seafolly swimsuit in a geometric festival inspired print has definitely got the wow factor. High neck swimsuits and tankinis are a catwalk favourite this year and this swimsuit combines the high neck with a stunning criss-cross spaghetti strap at the back – sunbathing should probably avoided in this swimsuit, just stick to posing!

We’re very excited to introduce our brand new My Nametags website!

You’ll be pleased to hear that it’s now mobile friendly so ordering while you’re out and about with your smart phone couldn’t be easier.

We know that parents are busy people so we’ve made it even easier to design your labels in a 3-easy steps with our 12 most popular designs just ready for you to customize.

  1. Choose one of our designs
  2. Add a name (and telephone number)

For those of you who would prefer to design your own labels (or have kids who like to!) we have a new ‘label builder’, which will smoothly guide you through the process.

Top Tip! Older children that design their own labels are more likely to name precious belongings so that expensive mobiles, IPods, trainers and even footballs don’t go missing.

Our colour nametags cost £11.95 (plus £1 postage and packaging) / € 16,95 for a pack of 56. Just choose either iron-on or stickers. So get creative, add some colour into your life and order some now.
