This competition is now closed! The winner is sue willshee  (@piperanddaisy)

Please email me on writingsramblingsandreviews@hotmail.co.uk to claim your prize!

When I recently attended the Brit Mums Conference I got to chat to the lovely people from Warner Brothers!  For a film loving family like us (nothing better than a duvet day watching family films) it was awesome to meet them and hear all about their services.

One of the things I was really interested in hearing about was Ultraviolet.

I don’t know about other parents, but I know for me it is really frustrating when you have crawled out from your duvet and gone on a long journey or to visit people and the kids are getting bored or stroppy  tired and you know that their favourite DVD would calm the situation but it is not at hand!

Well that is where Ultraviolet comes in, basically you buy a DVD or Bluray and within it is a code for a ultraviolet copy, you then go to a Flixster website (or app) and redeem your code. Then you can stream the film on your phone/tablet/computer/laptop where ever there is internet connection, and the bonus being you can download too for the times when there is no internet!

How great does that sound? Awesome, I am certainly going to continue using the service, roll on the next visit to, well anywhere – we will have our whole movie collection with us!

On top of hearing all about this, I was given some goodies to bring home, so being the lovely blogger I am I thought I would offer them to one of you!


The prize is a yogi bear one and includes a medium ‘smarter than the average bear’ tshirt, two packs of magnets and a Yogi Sandwich Box!

I have used Random.org to choose a winner and that person is….Katrina Day-Reilly

Congratulations – I will send you an email now! 

Approximately a month ago I decided that it was time to stop eating so much chocolate, to don the exercise outfits and start getting fit. I received an email from Shock Absorber shortly after asking if I would like to test run and review their new Sports Bra! Well so close after my decision that must mean it is meant to be, mustn’t  it?
I have tried Sports Bras before and have never really got on with them, they are either not that supportive, don’t fit your lumps and bumps or they are so tight you can’t breathe so exercise is out of the question anyway!

“Shock Absorber is the UK’s leading sports bra brand, providing expert breast support to active women. Since the brand launched in 1995 Shock Absorber has been committed to on-going research into the design and development of sports bras. The Shock Absorber range offers scientifically proven support and is synonymous with performance, style, comfort and quality”

I was sent the Shock Absorber Run Bra to give a go, perfect timing for my get fit plan! The bra is so soft and fits perfectly, and you will be pleased to know actually stops bounce and supports! I know, a massive bonus!

This one has been designed for running and certainly does the job, but I have to say it works perfectly for the likes of me who would rather get their exercise bouncing around the living room on the games on my Console.

The bra is very well made and features an expected bra type clasp, adjustable straps and lovely material – I would definitely recommend this bra!

To find out more information about Shock Absorber please visit their website http://www.shockabsorber.co.uk/ and follow them on Faceboook and Twitter at @No1SportsBraUK

Shock Absorber has launched its “#Get Out There” campaign to promote the benefits of exercising in the great outdoors and encourage women to share their inspirational places to train.  By uploading photos to the campaign’s Facebook page, people can be inspired by others’ experiences and get out there to try new locations for themselves.

Shock Absorber’s Kirsty Kothakota comments: “Many women have their favourite exercise location which gives their workout that extra boost. The aim of our ‘#Get Out There’ campaign is to provide a nationwide picture of inspirational and accessible green exercise places. Research shows participants work harder when exercising outdoors so it is important women wear the right sports bra. A Shock Absorber sports bra will give them the support they need, helping to further boost performance and confidence”.

You can view inspirational locations and participate in the campaign (for a chance to win daily prizes!) by visiting getoutthere.shockabsorber.co.uk but hurry, the competition ends on 19th June 2012!

I love Christmas, the season of goodwill, giving, cosy nights, sparkly lights and very good food!

But not all are as lucky as me to be able to spend it with family and with some nice pressies, so I like to do my bit for others too. I have a drawer, its a bottom drawer, it starts out empty at the beginning of the year and I keep it to put in a few bits and bobs that get boxed up and donated at Christmas!

This year we decided to start our children of with helping others too and they both did a shoebox for Operation Christmas Child! They loved putting it together and choosing what was going inside!

Anyway, why am I telling you this? This week I emptied the drawer and donated some lovely toys (Freebies and bargains) and gifts! But I found one little fellow who I thought I would offer here as a prize for you!
